The sun's rays barely kissed the tops of the mountains in the horizon as three tigers dashed through the terrain once again. The white and silver tigress leading the three, as they moved faster and faster through the course. Over rocks, under or through logs, and zig zagging between trees to improve their agility. The two behind forced to try and match her pace, despite her being quicker on her feet.
To Verone's surprise he was truly having to battle with his little brother for his place. Talis was right on Kyera's tail, following with acute precision that even Verone was not capable of. It was as if the boy was reading her mind, knew what tree they were going left around and wich log they were going over or through.
The three stopped, back at the start, all breathing fairly heavily from the run. Kyera turned human first, laying on her back in the the grass. The boys followed suite and joined her on their backs, forming a star with their heads as the center. Huffing and puffing being the only noise for several moments, punctuated with small bouts of senseless laughter.
"Talis… when did you… learn to read minds…" Verone's words caught between breathy pants. His body not as breathless as the younger brother, but he was a bit winded. Talis shook his head in response.
"Didn't. Read her body." He tried to explain in the shortest possible sentences. Talis had known training with Kyera would be difficult but he never expected the first day to run him like this. Where was the humanity in this? Luckily he was able to cut some of the guesswork and predict her moves saving himself from unnecessary steps.
"Read her what?" Verone's voice was suddenly very sharp. A small hint of distaste that his fairly tired brother was oblivious too. Just as he was about to swipe at the back of his brother's head a cool sweet laugh caught his attention.
"He read my body language, Verone. I use my tail to balance, similar to a snow leopard. So if you pay attention to the tail positioning…" Kyera dropped the sentence with a grin. The boys were being just too much fun tonight.
"You can guess if she's going up, down. Left, or right then just pay attention to the obstacles in the area." Talis replied with a shrug. Kyera nodded and gave him a praising look. He had potential, so much potential!
"Very good. Granted your agility is good it needs some work. You don't put the right amount of power into a jump and your still a little clumsy on going over things." Kyera added the criticism to keep his head on the ground, but overall she was pleased with his performance. He could learn all along, but now he has proven he will learn.
"Alright. Well… ummm" he bit his lip and glanced between Verone and Kyera, something obviously on his mind. His eyes were deep like an ocean and just as wild. Kyera was fairly sure she knew what he wanted to ask, but intended to wait patiently for him to get the nerve. Unfortunately, someone had grown just as curious.
"Ky, what is he suited for?" Verone asked, knowing she had an answer by now or they wouldn't be taking a break on the grass. Granted he wasn't complaining, the break was fantastic. However, he was still curious and his brothers nearly frantic nods reinforced his question. Verone almost missed the glare Kyera shot at him as he noticed a rock by his hand and proceeded to inspect it to see if it was like all the other rocks under his hand.
Kyera smiled and shook her head, sitting up as she adjusted her dress. "Well your not a fighter. I mean you can. Your quick and nimble but… your heart isn't in it." Her point was almost too well received by the young one. One fist struck for the sky as he cheered loudly. Kyera couldn't help but chuckle at the excitement in his face. "I take it you didn't want to be a fighter?" She asked and he just laughed.
"Like you said before Ky, my heart isn't in it." No sooner than the words left his mouth, he knew he had done something wrong….This time Verone didn't stop himself.
