A Rainy Afternoon (Open!)

Post by Athena on Thu Jun 08, 2017 7:47 am

The rain came down in tonnes, pounding against the earth like a griffin's thundering steps. Against the rocks they splattered, against the trees they pummeled, bending the leaves to their will. There were no strong wings, just the cold and the rain. Many creatures had taken shelter for the night, concealing themselves in the darkness of their hollows or the tunnels of their dens. The fox peered out of her little cave, tucked away into the roots of an old oak tree. She dipped back inside, however, when a creature passed her by.


The creature was white in color, standing out like a sore thumb against the green foliage. Soaked through, water dribbled off the end of her snout and dived into the leaves to join their brethren, her feathers pressing against her back from the weight of the rain. It stung, so it did, striking her scales and setting them alight with the burn that usually only came from hailstones.

Glancing up at the darkened sky, Athena let out a soft growl directed at the clouds that turned the heavens black. They resembled coal, lumbering across the sky at the speed of fat snails. To put it simply, they weren't going anywhere for a while.

The mud that formed beneath her talons got stuck in her feet and chilled her to the bone. She may have been made for the cold, but the sensation was still unpleasant. Grunting, Athena swished her tail and kept walking, blue eyes scanning what she could see for shelter.

This is such crap.. shifting her gaze to the sky again, Athena had the urge to curse at the clouds. Instead, she merely grimaced and kept walking -more like wading- through the mud. Letting out a single cough, she trudged up a small hill and glanced around. Nothing but grass and trees. Great.

Sighing, the ice dragon spread her wings, face contorting slightly at the horrid sensation of the heavy water sliding off her hide. Gross.. shaking her head, the dragoness went to leap into the air, considering flying above the clouds in the hopes of getting away from the rain.

Okay, why am I even down here? Katyusha wondered absently to herself, as she would soar through the darkened sky, her snake like body whipping and coiling as she moved herself across the ocean of clouds. She didn’t need to be here, and she didn’t want to. She could very well be back in her kingdom, doing her job. But of course, there was a shortage of food. This was normal, especially high up in the north, but what didn’t make sense about it was the fact that it was also warming up. Shouldn’t all the animals come out when it warms up? It just left everyone super confused.

Katyusha was a policewoman for the Kaamil. Her job was to keep her tribe safe from itself. Hey, sounds like something’s messed up with her tribe when you say it like that. In all honesty, Katyusha never really did anything for her job, because there was never really any internal conflict or trouble. All the outsiders and foreigners were dealt with by patrol guards. Aka, not her job to handle. So, she ended up spending her free time drawing, or hanging out at one of the ice springs or lake Cashra’s.

But she had decided to help assist her tribe a bit more than needed, and agreed to helping some civilians go out and find extra food for the tribe. She was mostly doing this to get food for herself, as she was starving, but helping out the civilians always promised a promotion. She flicked her tail pleasantly. A promotion meant more food and more luxuries. And she could definitely survive getting a little wet for that.

But still, this pelting rain was annoying. On the bright side, she didn’t have wings, and the combination of her soft scales and slender body allowed her to move through the sky much faster and get less wet and less tired. But it was still annoying. Letting out a quiet sigh, the black and turquoise eastern dragoness would fly down to the comfort of a nearby tree, looking back up at the sky. Yep, that didn’t look like it’d subside soon. Oh well. She’d rest here for a bit before continuing her search.

Leaping into the air, Athena flapped her wings and soared upwards, battling the winds that threatened to pull her back down to earth. Growling softly, she shut her eyes as the rain pelted her like stones, making loud splashes each time they connected with her hide. Her wet scales were sore and dripping, and the shadows beneath her eyes had gone an unsightly pink, from heavy droplets smashing against the sensitive skin.

Ugh, curse this rain! she snarled, ducking in an effort to protect her face. As she gazed at the ground, she ascended higher and higher, watching the trees shrink to toy size.


She saw the lightning before it struck her.



SSSS-CRACK!


The first thing she sensed was the world going silent, time slowing down for a few moments. Throwing back her head, Athena let out a soundless shriek, twisting midair. Then, she went limp and fell, eyes closed. Gah, my head.. She thought, not realising what was happening. No longer able to feel the rain pelting her scales, she slowly parted her eyelids. Oh.. Well, I'm going to die.. She had the urge to shrug as the wind hurt her face.

An unfortunate tree stood in her path, leaves dancing furiously to the song of the wind. Shutting her eyes, Athena clenched her teeth and let all tension leave her body. Well, she thought. This is going to hurt..


Bang!

Entering the tree headfirst, Athena crashed through the leaves and snapped the sticks in half as she shot straight through the foliage and out the other side. CRUNCH! She hit the ground, hard, with a force that shook the earth. Oddy enough, she couldnt feel the pain..

As the world faded into darkness, Athena thought she saw a snake-like.. Thing, close by.

(You know, Athy, you’ve gotten a lot better at rp since the last time I saw you.) :)

Katyusha remained under the tree, her eyes partially closed in annoyance. Of course, of all the times to have a terrible storm, the universe had decided to have one just while she was hunting. It hadn’t been this bad when she had first taken off, and started looking for food! Heck, there hadn’t even been a storm back in where she had been hunting in the Kaamil territory. This whole thing was nothing but a bunch of reindeer droppings. Of course mother nature had nothing better to do than make her life more inconvenient, didn’t she? Thought the ice dragoness with a look of annoyance on her face.

And not only that, but the storm had managed to get significantly worse since she had flown down to the rogue lands. When she had first flown into the grasslands and over the tops of the trees, the storm had only been mild. You know, just some rain, and some wind. Now, it seemed as if, as soon as she had taken shelter underneath this wonderful tree, it had gone from a 2 to 10 real quick. Now there were flashes of lightning, and the loud, deafening sounds of thunder in the distance. It made her whole body shiver, though that was probably more from cold than actual fear.

Being caught up in a storm like this definitely didn’t help with Katyusha’s stress levels. Storms like this never happened back up in the Iceillo region. The only storm they ever got up there were blizzards. Katyusha could handle a blizzard. After all, her scales were tough and designed to handle rigorously cold climates. Heck, her scales could probably even withstand hail. It was this terrible lightning that she wouldn’t be able to just power through. And her long, winding body made plenty of room for lightning to strike. All in all to be said about the situation, the whole thing made her awfully nervous.

It really made her uncomfortable, the idea of being caught up in this storm. Who knew how long it would last, after all. She would look around, as rain pelted her snout. All she could see in either direction were a dense covering of trees. And it wasn’t like trees were all that safe when it came to lightning, either. It was like she was in a forest of death. She needed to get out of here, and find a cave, or something. She looked back up at the sky, just in case it the storm had calmed down. Much to her dissatisfaction, the storm still seemed to be going rather strong. Just by looking at the tree tops, she could tell the winds were unusually aggressive. Yeah, anyone who flew in that would have to be either insane or…

Katyusha would temporarily pause in her thoughts, when she noticed something rather out of the ordinary. It appeared…. To be some kind of dragon. Good lord, what on Nuira were they doing out in this weather? She watched them cautiously, mentally screaming for them to get out of the rain. That’s when something terrifying happened. She practically let out a scream of pain when a sudden, painful screech of lightning would rain down from the heavens. Her eyes widened when she watched the other dragon get struck with the lightning.

Then the dragon started falling. Katyusha’s mind began to whirl. What was she do to! She couldn’t just leave them! Oh god, what would she do! She bit her lower lip, wincing mentally, jumping a bit, when she noticed the dragon smack into the tree she was hiding underneath. Her whole body seemed to uncoil in shock, as the limp dragon would fall to the ground, just a couple of feet away from her.

For a moment, Katyusha just stared at the body, her mind whirling. What if the dragon was dead? Silence. Then, Katyusha would swallow her fear and nervousness, and move towards her. She was a cop, after all. This was the kind of thing she had to deal with. Well, she had never actually seen a dead body before, but she had received training. She would approach the body, lifting the dragoness’s arm up, feeling her pulse. The steady thumping made her let out a sigh of relief. Good, she was still alive. Now, the question was, what to do with her? It wasn’t like police training told you what to do when someone was shot with lightning. Katyusha examined the dragoness’s wounds carefully, biting her lip. That looked serious…

She had one idea, though. Katyusha would gently press her hands against the wound, freezing the opening, so as to stop the bleeding, and to help numb the pain. Hopefully that would help...
