Ohhkay, Maybe Pegasi Do Exist (Open to all)

Post  Catryn Greyling on Mon Sep 16, 2013 10:46 pm

Cat left her carry-on and rectangular gym bag at the stables' entrance and walked towards the pegasi, awestruck. She beheld a row of majestic, pure white horses (and a few with different colors and markings on them) with strong, feathered wings fluttering skittishly at their sides.
 "Whoa," she breathed. She felt a strong fascination with the creatures then, and those wings, grafted perfectly to their sturdy bodies as if there couldn't be anything more natural.
 The nearest one turned and looked in her eyes curiously. She read the nameplate: Starkwell.
 "Pegasi," she murmured. It had always been simply something of the myths to her; a creature she could only ever wish existed, along with dragons, griffons and the like. And now, standing in front of her was Starkwell the winged horse. And a bunch of his half-siblings. It was almost insane.
 She reached out hesitantly and patted Starkwell's nose. His wings beat lightly within the limited space of the stall. She smiled. Interesting.

'Fascinating much?' Estelle peeped in. Acacia was on her shoulder, and she fretted a bit. 'Sorry, she doesn't like horses. Athena and Poseidon, you know? The old rivalry.'

Cat filed through the myths she knew about Athena and Poseidon. There was the Medusa incident... and that was all she could remember.
"Right," she said. Her eyes went to the bird on Estelle's shoulder. An owl, the sacred animal of Athena. "She's yours?"

'Not mine, technically- she's a free spirit and can leave me whenever she wishes.' Estelle smiled. 'But yeah, she's "mine".'

"I see," Cat said, watching the owl with interest. She had to admit: that sounded a lot better, with the owl being a free spirit rather than a sort of pet. "So, your partner in crime," she amended with a smile. "She's a lovely bird."

'Definitely,' Estelle grinned devilishly. 'She can tell me anything that goes around camp, with the help of other owls, too.' She paused. 'No one suspects an eavesdropping owl, fortunately.' Acacia flew around lazily.

Cat looked slightly surprised. "You can understand her?" Gosh, what can't these Athena kids do? She stared at the owl, wondering if she'd be lucky enough to be an Athena kid. Probably not. As much as she'd hate to say it, she probably wasn't that wise. Not yet.

'Um, yeah. I speak owl.' Estelle gave a half- smile. 'Freaky, I know. But hey, they're great sources of information.'

"Freaky? I'd say that's pretty awesome." Cat grinned, her guard dropping even more. She paused. "Does she have a name?"

'Acacia,' Estelle replied. 'Here, Acacia, you're scaring the pegasi.' Acacia reluctantly ceased showing off, landing back on Estelle's shoulder.

"Acacia," Cat repeated. "Nice."
She glanced back at the pegasi to gauge their emotions. Estelle was right; their wings fluttered skittishly as they stared in displeasure at Acacia. For angelic white-winged horses, they could sure look murderous. She allowed herself a grin, then stopped herself short. She shouldn't have allowed her guard to go down so easily. Not your fault, she told herself. You're surrounded by flying horses and people who are half-god and speak to owls. It's a rare occasion.
She sighed, stuffing her hands in the pockets of her light gray zip-up hoodie. "Well, I guess this more or less proves it. I mean, I could argue that this is some secret freak experiment on horses and their ability to evolve into a species with wings, and we're currently in the outdoor laboratory of a Greek-obsessed group of child scientists, but... ah, it just doesn't seem like it." She looked up at Estelle and Acacia. "So... you're really a child of the Greek goddess Athena, who's real and immortal and living on Mount Olympus with the other Olympian gods." She said it as a statement, looking for a confirmation.

'Yeah, I am.' Estelle cocked her head to one side. 'A funny way to put it, though it's true.' She noted Cat stop midway-grin. 'What, you still don't trust us?' she said.

Cat shook her head, almost smiling. "It's not that... It's a little more like I don't trust myself." She hoped that made sense. She considered elaborating, but decided against it; she'd probably start rambling by accident or confuse the topic further.
 Truthfully, she really didn't trust herself to let loose and be herself around other people. They seemed to run off a lot quicker when she did, and eventually she had learned to be cool, formal, and just polite enough to gain a sufficient amount of respect. She somewhat enjoyed it... for the most part. She shoved the bout of loneliness away before she could even feel it. She hadn't slipped up in her facade for years, until now. And now was definitely a special circumstance.
 She stretched her arms out, letting out a yawn. "Well, I'd better be off. Some sleep would do me well," she said, a hint of her tiredness seeping into her voice.

((They can have time, usually, but if you want it to happen now, go ahead xD))


Estelle nodded curtly. She's been developing synergology for years- people didn't fool her. 'You could go on. I'm not sure what I'm doing now- maybe I'll go back to my own cabin.' she flicked her dagger. 'If you want to come talk to me.. anytime. You'll find that I'm a good listener, and that I have a bounty of interesting stories.' Estelle winked. 'I see people for who they are, not how they act.'

'Hey, I've studied psychology. I've heard of crazier people than you,' Estelle's grey eyes sparkled as she laughed.

Cat grinned and picked up her gym bag. "Ah well, I should get my sleeping arrangements figured out then." She grabbed her carry-on in her other hand. "Bye, Estelle." She paused and looked at Acacia. "Bye, Acacia." She hoped she could understand her.
She walked away from the stables, only looking back once to make sure she hadn't just imagined the pegasi and that this was, in fact, reality, and her new life.
