– 3rd Snippet Night’s Treasure –
“No one can accuse Hermes of theatricality,” Morpheus snorted in amusement.
The woman laughed, her voice lovely and airy but human like Sophy’s.
“At least he’s not so bad as Eros, forever playing tricks on everyone,” she stated. “And I would gladly take Hermes’ theatricalities and flirtations before having to endure Dionysus’ breath. He reeks of sour grapes!”
Morpheus laughed. “Fermented grapes, my dear,” he corrected her.
“Fermented or sour, he smells disgusting!”
