Meesha looked up as Athena flopped down onto a chair next to her. She looked exhausted and defeated.
"You are the only sane person here," she informed the young woman with a tired sigh.
Meesha had a mouth full of bacon, so instead of replying she simply reached out and patted Athena's hand. She knew how Aphrodite and Roxy could get, and Athena had her full sympathy.
She finished swallowing her food, and looked around. The owner of the inn was passing their table, so she stopped him with a hand wave.
"Excuse me, but has the morning bell sounded yet?" she asked, taking a sip of her milk. The innkeeper looked annoyed, but grudgingly answered her question.
"Yes, about an hour ago," he replied swiftly, before hurrying towards the storage room. Athena groaned.
"Ugh, we're so far behind schedule!" she complained.
"Well, we are up late last night, and we were all exhausted," Meesha countered. Athena knew she was right, but didn't want to give up the opportunity to berate Roxy and Aphrodite.
As if on cue, the two soon returned to the table, their plates laden with food. Athena eyed the bacon angrily, knowing that she couldn't eat it lest she become ill. Instead, she snatched some of Roxy's bread and began to eat. Unlike Meesha, she had no qualms with talking while her mouth was full.
"We're going to be late!" she said, clearly annoyed with the delay. Aphrodite dismissed her concerns with a wave of her hand.
"We'll get there on time, cuz. We were tired! Give it a rest!" Aphrodite protested, before digging in to her breakfast.
"We need to get moving soon, so eat your food quickly...and don't call me 'cuz'!"
