Don't be afraid

The Queen of the Underworld sits serenely on her silver throne.  At her feet, a fluffy red chow dog sleeps peacefully. On the back of the throne, a tortoiseshell cat purrs softly. 

A new cat approaches.  Persephone smiles at her.  "Don't be afraid," the queen says.  She leans down.  The chow lifts his head and blinks his amber eyes at the new cat.  Persephone scratches the cat's perfect ears. "You're here now.  It is lovely here."  The goddess looks directly into her clear blue eyes.  "Mrow," says the new cat emphatically.   She curls up in the lap of the goddess, and closes her eyes.
