What is harder to accomplish; using only your tails to pull back and arrow and crouch down and aim for the center, diving into such cold water that makes even your skeleton rattle, I nearly broke out of Nightmare form when I hit the water, or perhaps sprinting? Take your pick while I pick sprinting, I didn't even want to do this but then why did I sign up for it? I glare at my trainer, Spring, yeah the leafeon own by Nichole.
She escape from the Rps when she got wind of the event, Navarr should really fix that issue, the characters shouldn't be able to hear us, their creators. A good example was when Crimson heard my muttering to myself about killing him off, ahaha and he nearly skinned me that day, good thing I had Glareon to help me out. "You can do it Sky!" Spring hollered with glee, shattering my train of thought.
I went to my stance, I was in the dead center of the stage, my body shuddered, it didn't look forward to being push to its very limits. I crouch down, butt in the air, my tail flick side to side.
I couldn't help recall the day of training with Spring, she was a brilliant runner, probably due to those large muscles located in her back legs and hip. All the practicing we did was to strength my muscles and endurance. On the first day I fell to the dirty ground, my muscles crying from jogging for only a matter of minutes and what did Spring do? She laughed and smirk, saying something I never thought she would ever say, "Maybe you should be a munchlax, they're fat, lazy and can't run for the life of them." This tick me off and I bolted for her, my anger told my muscles and nerves to shut the heck up and make me run so I could pound Spring to a nice happy pulp, of course I didn't reach her.
The signal rang and everyone bolted for it, including the zorua. I promise myself this time I would be myself, my true self, the reward of being 3rd or close to getting a medal didn't give me the utter joy I expected cause I was not me, but someone else, those forms were winners, I wasn't, they had the ability to great things while I didn't.
My muscles did their work, forcing my limbs to move and hit the pavement harder and harder with each quick step. My breath intake was more then usual, my throat was starting to dry with the lack of spit going down my throat. I didn't dare my muscles or slavery glands to their work, I need all my energy into my muscles, all my breathing need to fill me for this very job.
I managed to cross the line, in utter joy of doing so my front paws got tangled with each other and I plummeted to the ground face first, then I tumbled a bit more, I ended up being on my back. "That was great!" Spring said running up to me. She nose me up to a sitting position and waited patently while I caught my breath. After I caught my breath she gave me a nice cold water and I drank happily, I finish the plastic water bottle in one go which in turn made me gasp for air.
"What place did I get it?" I ask with a smile.
The grass pokemon did an awkward look around and ended up looking at the ground "Last place..." She mumbled, almost to a volume that I couldn't hear with all the loud cheering and all that I nearly miss it, she probably wish I did miss it.
"B-but I trained!" I whimpered "I improved! A lot, was that not good enough?" This always happened! When I improved on something someone came along and shoved me back in the dark corner, I should have never left that corner... I got to my paws and started to walk away, I was angry, with myself and the world, I was never good enough and I should have never tried, I failed.
"Wait Sky," the leafeon said, easily catching up to me "You did great!"
"Then why didn't I win if I was so great?" I snarled at her, I could feel my fur go up, making me look like a dirty angry artic fox.
Spring didn't look afraid and stood her ground, she probably didn't scare easily due to having a little crush of the angry zangoose of Nichole's, though who knows? "Greatness doesn't always mean you win." She said plainly, I looked up in her brown eyes, she had unusually long eyelashes and they made her only look more serious.
"When I was in another form I won or was always close to winning, now I'm not even close when I'm myself!" I really wanted to dig my claws into her flesh, even if she was one of my favorite characters I ever Rped as.
The leafeon's expression soften and she put her leaf to behind me, softly urging me to move and I did so, not happy with it. "You're so silly Sky~ Getting all work up on that! You know you got those places cause you were you! You're forms have nothing to do with you're ability to do great, you're just too blind to notice."
Though after that I thought my anger still remains boiling in my veins. Force by Spring, I greet every runner with a bright fox like grin, saying things like; "Nice going!", "You were great!", "Wish I could run that fast!", "Good going bro!", etc, etc.
After that I walk Spring back to her RP and sighed to myself and smiled, at least I tried as myself.
