Re: The Cat: Rae and Kratos
Given the goings on in the town, Kratos suspected that the people here (gods included) were directly affected by their environs. It did not seem to matter whether they were worshipers or not, and interestingly the immediacy of the distance seemed to matter. (He did not think in these terms, for the record. He thought more closely to the following: These are small gods in a small place. What he meant, really, was that they walked here physically, and affected the people in perhaps fifty square miles, versus continents. It was not what he was used to. Ares had affected hundreds of thousands of men with a word.
Kratos nodded. I don't want children made much more sense than a woman can manage successfully. Kratos thought the latter was obvious. But to be fit to be a mother, one only had to be a woman. This place was so alien in its understanding of identity. Being a woman here meant other things, clearly. Faye would have liked such complications.
He neatly dodged the spear. "There is only the boy."
