    Summary

    “So it’s accidental?”

    “Of course it’s accidental,” Mark snarls. He hasn’t stopped running his fingers through his hair. Sebastian can’t help but take comfort in the fact that they’re both freaking out about this. “Why on earth would I want to, with him, of all people—”

    “Get off your high horse,” Sebastian says, angry now. “A soul bond runs both ways.”

    “An accidental soul bond,” Mark says.

    Summary

    Hades places one hand over Zag’s head, careful to make the touch soft, barely noticeable. He doubts he’s ever done this, pat his son on the head. Or touched him at all in a manner that did not hurt him. Not in years at least.

    (I’m sorry, he does not say.)

    With his other hand, he snaps his fingers.

    Or: Zagreus is cursed to forget each time he dies.
