He tells him that his true name was given to him by the stars, and that only those who have divine lineage can hear and understand his name. Little zhan asks him what is wrong, and eros tells him to teach him. He will teach him well, he says, but learning the name of the god will set a trap on his back. He believes that they can overcome everything and become like him in the end, and he tells little zhana to let them take this risk, as he believes they can become just like him. eros is angry, but he is no match for the god of desire. He asks eli why she left the car, and she says that if she exerts herself and affects the baby, she will feel miserable. He says that he will go hunt for some fowls and bring back some food.
