It's now or never.
Word Count → 294 :: OOC Thread prompt: It's noon and there's a sunshower. Your character thinks they just saw a mythical creature.

How... how was this happening? Moon peered up at the sky, only half full of pregnant clouds, the other half bright, blue, and sunny. She cocked her head, she twitched her ears, and winked her eyes, and shook herself but still the image did not go away. How was it doing this? How was the sky dropping rain while the sun still shone upon the plains? It was beautiful. It was unnatural. It was frightening.

Moon Moon decided that she didn't like it when the weather acted suspicious, and that she would go to find her father, or Mads, or Asura, or one of her friends who could explain this to her... but everyone from Sapient had been too preoccupied by the recent political snafu that there was no way she could even get anyone to believe her. Little did she know that it was highly probable that others had seen this before – rain on a sunny day – and could tell her that it was normal.

Uncertain of what she should do, Moon Moon decided to get herself out of the rain, at least. Aqua eyes peered around the immediate area until they caught sight of the cave carved out in a wall to the west of the clearing. She wished she was wearing a cloak that she could pull around her protruding, pregnant belly, just for the sake of doing the action, but she was not. Spinning on her pads, she jogged for the shelter.

Once inside she spun back around just in time to see a white shape streak through the clearing. Her jaw dropped. No, no, I didn't... did I just see...? she muttered to herself, squinting and peering through the rain. Did that horse have a horn?

OOC; Hope you don't mind me throwing Ares into this? And apologies for the vagueness of where he is near the end, thought might leave it up to you whether happens across Moon Moon's shelter or not.
____________________________________________________

Now if there were one thing in which Ares was more than willing to admit - even if just to himself - it were that this was certainly a slightly bizarre feeling and situation. The pleasant warmth in which the sun offered as it shone down upon the earth and all in which were beneath the sun filled part blue sky and then there were the light rain shower that in turn counteracted this through cooling everything and everyone that it landed upon. A strange and potentially annoying experiance for some but also a wonderful one; the intriguing multi-colored lights that were created were certainly a sight to see and enjoy.

It were for this reason that Ares had found himself coming to a halt as soon as the sun shower hit him, tilting his head upwards and eyes partly closing and a small smile forming upon his maw as rain were allowed to trickle over over face without so much as an effort to wipe the water away. Well; aside from anything else he were already damp anyway so what harm was a little extra water going to do?

It were this that had caused the temporary lone male to simply linger out in the open head tilted upwards towards the sky before tugging himself back to reality and opening olive eyes to focus back upon his surroundings and in time began to move lest he forget to do such a thing. Tp where specifically he knew not for there were the option of seeking out shelter and waiting for the rain to pass - the issue with this being the rain could continue for many hours and potentially grow heavier as the day wore on - or for him to press on and still get wet. What a choice, get soaked returning back thome or spending a mildly blissful few hours dry.

A dilemma it may have been but one in which were quickly forgotten about for a time, but why he would not know for such alternative scenarios were not always obvious and did not always reside within the realm of reality or myth.

Ares will usually be in his Optime form and will often be seen wearing a clear quartz arrowhead necklace unless otherwise stated.

Word Count → 200+ :: OOC Happy to have you here!

Despite her astonishment, Moon Moon turned away from the bare door frame for a moment to shake herself dry. It was a futile action because it just splattered water all over the shed to drip back down onto her, and because this makeshift tin shed was so rickety that rainwater was leaking in from a dozen places already. At least she wasn't in the middle of the throng, though it would be fun to try and follow the rain in such a way that she remained in the peculiar patches where rain did not fall.

Turning back around, she was startled to see a gray shape moving through the storm. She bristled, expecting it to be another fantastic creature of myth, but after a few blinks she realized it was just another luperci.

Psst, hey! she whispered, but there was no way he could hear her over the rain, especially the way it was beating the roof of her shelter. She stood in the doorway and leaned out, yelling much louder this time, I said, 'Pissst, HEY!' That was enough to get the attention of an old, deaf, blind dog.

There's somethin' out thar, she warned him. it ain't safe out there. If you wanna live you better get inside! Moon's hands waved frantically, punctuating her urgency.

If Ares had indeed heard any words directed towards him over the sounds of the rain then he made little effort in which to make it clear that he had even registered such utterances, even if at a quick glance there were only the smallest twitch of an ear and even then that could so easily have been put down to the rain landing upon a surface that could make even the smallest of sounds seem louder that intended.

So naturally this would have been more than enough reason for anyone to have simply shrugged off any other perceived sounds that may or may not have reached his ears, at least right up until the near yell reached the grey male's ears. The sound of the words in which were clearly aimed at him not just simply surprising him once they were to reach his ears - no doubt due to his unexpectance of the pressence of another with little foreknowledge - caused the male to take a step backwards almost as if he had been struck by some blow as eyes searched out the voices source. Only upon locating the female sheltering within her shelter did the surprise give way to mild confusion as a half step were taking towards her before seeming to be about to question her words.

That was the first thought in which entered his mind up until the warning of his safety got his attention, so with that and the briefest of glance to his surroundings did Ares take note and do as he were bid scurrying forward to cautiously join the female before having the chance to cast his eyes back outwards to where he had been up until recently. "What's out there then? What's so dangerous?" it were potentially wild asumption but better that then think otherwise and be proven wrong, all he had to go on was the information given to him.
