Disaster has struck!
I can still feel her eyes staring and my skin prickles at the sensation. A feeling of anticipation washes over me and my muscles cling to my awkward form. Kronos will be interested in my encounter with another but then I wonder myself what adventures he's been up to in our time apart. When I look a certain way at the water, I can almost see the glimmering of a black coat behind the water but I don't know whether to trust it or blame it on seeing things that aren't there.
Even so, the eyes I feel never falter and a voice soon joins them. She challenges me to walk on by if I don't want to be a coward and the pup in me wants to straighten up and do just that. Show her that I'm no coward but I feel a logical beast purring in how that could turn to my disadvantage. I turn my head down, feeling how slick the rocks are this close to the falls. To walk past her not knowing if she'll test me or not, I could react too quick and find my death at the bottom of the falls. Well played, stranger, well played.
My eyes glimmer as I turn back, unsure of where to look but know that somehow she'll hear me. I could catch that the voice was female in nature but that's where my understanding ends. I turn back to the falls, looking over the edge until I find what I'm looking for. I turn back with a teasing grin I'm not sure she'll even be able to see as I call out.
"Why walk when I can jump?"
And that's exactly what I do. I coil my legs and launch myself over the edge of the crags. I knew before I jumped that there was a strong ledge not far below this one. I hit hard enough to send me rolling but I manage to right myself right before the treacherous edge. My claws dig into the unforgiving rock as I push myself away from the edge and get back to my feet, trying to hide my shaking legs. I wasn't sure if the ledge would be strong enough to hold me but alas, I got off lucky. I glance up now, wondering if she'll be curious enough to see what became of the boy who jumped. I'm curious to see know what the voice looks like.
