Re: The Cat: Rae and Kratos
Kratos could tell Rae was pleased about Faye's victory in the matter of children, and her smile made his mouth thin out in an expression of long-suffering contentment that was the signature of a great many beleaguered husbands who felt the weight of family responsibilities and actually bore up under them. Yes, Rae would be pleased, one woman to another, even if the latter was dead. Kratos closed his eyes briefly against this league of womenkind and snorted. "Rhm."
Kratos thought of his son, who was slight, fiery-headed, and filled with unbounded curiosity and energy. "No." This was sufficient answer for him, as he did not specifically wish Rae to know anything about his son, and so he did not elaborate. It was not that it was secret; it was simply that words were for decisive communication, and not to fill the air.
