Calliope nodded with relief. "Thank you," she said with feeling. "That means a lot. You have lifted a burden from my shoulders." She reached out to hold Apollo's hand for a moment, then started eating her meal. It really was quite good. Apollo always knew the best food places.
She wanted to ask about the curse and his death, but she knew better than to do it right now. She smiled and drank her wine and enjoyed his company over the food instead, biding her time for the right moment.
