Archery practice (private)

Post by FinnsRainbow on 8/17/2017, 5:49 am

David had arrived a few minutes ago at the archery range. He had promised his half-sister Freya to train with her, spot her arrows and that kind of stuff to get ready for Capture-the-Flag that evening. Since Freya was a terrific marskwoman, he had saddled a white pegasus just so he'd be faster for the arrows. That was the main plan.
Of course, he was a child of Athena so there were always side plots and little twists in what he did. While he'd naturally help his sister, he would also use the pegasus to get a good view of the forest, keep an eye out for rival trappers and generally assess the terrain from above. The forest may never grow in size but it was deeply enchanted. Paths changed, groves disappeared. Know what Herodotus said about never stepping into the same river twice? Case in point.

Freya arrived at the archery range and spotted her half brother. She shirt was no longer on back to front, and was now considerably cleaner. The coffee from breakfast had obviously done its job as the girl was seemingly more awake than before. Checking her bow to make sure it was properly stringed, she looked up at David, who was riding a pegasus. 'Ready?' She asked as she began to pull an arrow out of her quiver.

"Ready as ever. Shoot ahead!" He kicked his horse's sides and the pegasus unfolded his wings, reared on his hind legs and climbed up into the sky. David clinged to reins and mane, standing up in the stirrups.

Setting up her arrow, Freya calmed herself and focused on nothing accept the feel of the bow and string in her hands. She glanced around the area, looking for a suitable target before aiming at post in the distance; it had been placed there a while ago for long distance target practice. Closing her eyes, the girl relaxed her shoulders and slowly readied herself to shoot. She pulled back the string and eyed her target, making sure that the wind wouldn't alter her arrows course. After a few moments of this, she released the string; she held her position until the arrow was safely away from her bow and the relaxed.
Looking up at her half-brother, she shielded her eyes from the sun. 'Did it hit David?' She asked.

David squinted, his pegasus beating his large wings above his legs. He circled the pole once and flew back to Freya's spot. "You're just a wee bit off the mark, try again!"

Nodding, Freya quickly adjusted something on her bow before loading another arrow onto the string. Once she'd relaxed herself again, she carefully pulled back the string before aiming. Clearing her head, she focuses on the target before her and let the arrow fly after a moment of making sure the wind wouldn't be an obsticle. She looked over at David in question. 'What about this time?' She asked.

OOC- sorry it's so late Embarassed

BIC-
David urged his pegasus forward, the heavy wings beating in the wind. He squinted down as he circled the pole. "Bull's eye! Well done!" he shouted, flying back to her spot. "You got this sis." Freya was really amazing. With the accuracy of an eagle she hit the bull's eye every time afterwards, or somewhere within an inch of it. She could probably go toe-to-toe with the Apollo's.
After an hour of shooting and spotting arrows, David brought his pegasus down on the grass. He had made good work studying the forest from above and found a couple of strategic spots for tonight.
But now, he wanted to get off the saddle and do something with his legs. "So, Freya. Ready to hit the obstacle course?"

Grinning and nodding, Freya put her bow away. 'Of course! Just know that I'm gonna kick your butt though.'
She knew this wasn't true. Whilst she had the accuracy to rival that of a child of Apollo, her ability to climb and overcome physical obstacles was not so great. She personally put this down to her clumsiness.

David grinned. "You're on, Smith." Nothing like some sibling competition to get the day really started.
The challenge course was on the outskirts of the forest. A jungle of logs, ropes, flying knives and zip lines for all your demigod needs, weaving among the treetops. David pulled on a harness above his armour while one of the Hephaestus kids looked over his equipment.

"You got a shield?"

"Yeah."

"Put it on. You'll need it."

David tapped his watch, which morphed into a large bronze shield embossed with an owl. Then he looked around for his sister, ready to start the challenge.

"So this is a race, right?" he said with a sly grin, looking up at the obstacles above them.

Rolling her eyes at her brother, the girl gazed up at the obstacle course. 'Like you had to ask, David.' Smirking, she readied herself for the course. Competition between siblings was healthy from time to time.
The course was intimidating to say the least; she scanned it, mentally taking note of various places she would excel in... and others where she knew she'd fall flat on her face.

David grinned at his sister and strode over to the start ropes, occasionally glancing upwards. Somewhere up in the trees, someone screamed. He looked back at Freya with a wink. "Looks delightful." He readied his shield and grabbed one of the ropes. "Ready?"

Following him, she took a hold of another one of the ropes and smirked. 'Should a piece of cake. Of course I'm ready.' She looked up at the sound of the scream and raised an eyebrow. 'Oh this is gonna be interesting...' she trailed off, gripping the rope tighter.
