Disaster has struck!
I don't know why I chose nighttime to go out wandering without my brother; it's not like I can depend on the darkness to hide my ivory form. I stick out like a sore thumb, my crimson scruff the only semi-dark marking about me besides my eyes. I got my father's eyes but a darker version, a midnight blue to his ice. He prefers the darkness because he believes he is a child of darkness, a vampire, and yet I have seen him in the daylight without harm. Mother, too, prefers the stars to the clouds because she is a hunter at heart. She knows that more wolves are out and about at night and so she chooses that time to go hunting. Maybe this is where I got my night preferences from.
I can soon smell another adventuring close by and I know by instinct that it's not Kronos. I would know my brother's cologne like it's second nature but this one is unfamiliar to me, a stranger. My ears flicker, my tail flicking behind me in slight agitation that I will not find my solitude tonight. I do not seek it much since I rely on Kronos just as much as he relies on me but when I do find my seperation from him, I usually do not go seeking other company to put in his place. Of course, no other could replace him.
I wonder for a moment if I should try to avoid the other presence, perhaps slip deep into one of these caverns and wait for them to pass by. But of course that would be cowardice and that's not the Satanican way and so I simply wait. I do not see her yet but it's only a matter of time.
The water crashes down beside me and I find myself transfixed by its beauty once more. It truly is a magical thing. Perhaps I'll bring Kronos here tomorrow morning.
Suddenly my hackles rustle to life, instincts kicking in because I know I can sense eyes on me. My head snaps but I don't see her, not yet. I catch whiffs of her perfume from the spray of the waterfall though so I know she's close. My lips twitch, a shadow of a smirk as I speak. I'm not usually the one to talk but when I do, I tend to be blunt.
"Why hide if you don't intend to walk on by? Prove you're not a coward or don't waste my time."
