Who: Andromache, Helenus
When: Thursday evening
Where: Andie's apartment
It had been a long time since Andromache last saw Helenus. It had been on his deathbed, and for many years after she had lived on as her sons took care of her. There may have been a few bad years in her last life, but when it boiled down to it she had had some of the best sons a mother could ask for, even if three of them had been Neo's. Andromache had had more influence over them than their father. Maybe that's why they had turned out so well. And of course she wouldn't have expected anything less from Cestrinus. He had honor like his father.
She was a little nervous about this reunion. There was never any telling how these things would go, but Andromache had always trusted Helenus. He had been the one person she could count on in such dark times. She hoped those days weren't going to repeat themselves. Sometimes she thought they were making a comeback, considering how many from the Trojan War had started popping up. At least Helenus was one of the good ones. Apart from Polyxena and Cassandra, and Hector (wherever he was), Helenus was one of very few who she wanted to see.
Maybe it was short notice, but she was excited to see him again. She had to control herself when she went grocery shopping, intent on not making a feast for two people. The food was still cooking in the oven. The place smelled of Greek food. It made her think of home and of happier days.
