The sun was beating down in a drawl today. Crickets hummed along the paved road, heard in-between the plap plap plap of black sandals, a large sun-hat bouncing in light of her steps, worn to protect her barren-shoulders & back from the heat above. If her mind wasn't still back in the dim lighting of the labs, crunching numbers and scrawling solutions on forms, napkins, loose-leaf paper and notepads, she might've almost been concerned with the sudden quiet that cotton-balled around her slowly. As it was, the last 78 hours had been rough, starting with a struggle in the 'birthing' process that involved some of the largest test-tubes in the world; agitated newborns, and endless weepy-howls of others who'd come into consciousness within a small kennel, laboring for love and affection as the anesthetics wore off. The last handful of hours had really sapped up every last shred of energy she had left, her signatures on release forms, incoming forms and sign-offs turning into a thin thread of ink that wouldn't've looked like a signature if someone had decided to squint. _______________ Yang: 17 [8/20] Bathalgor: 0 [1/5]
The River Bend promised to be a break from the hustle and bustle of busy hands, chemical smells, and the stench of those who had been sterilized at every moment and between every underground door, but hadn't seen a shower in days. In fact, Yang believed the stench to be so strong, that even after getting home and crawling into the shower,very little of the soap & scrubbing helped to alleviate the stenches from her skin. Infact, she'd packed a bottle of sunscreen lotion and other types of skin-related aftercare items, not for the protection her hardy-to-the-sun skin, but more in the hopes that with a good rub-down, the chemical scent would finally dissipate. Plap plap plap her sandals echoed as she walked down the steady slope, picking up the whiffs, the sounds, and the growing presence of the impending running water. Vegetation gradually grew more lush, and as she finally reached the cities'-edge and came to the first border of shade & trees, she let off an audible sigh of relief, hiking up her satchel (that held, among other things, bottled water, crackers cheese & meat, a book, magazine, and her phone) _______________ Yang: 17 [9/20] Bathalgor: 0 [2/5]
The sounds brought by the blasting heat of the sun died down as Yang marched on, her drawling thoughts gradually shutting away the thoughts of work and work-related issues brought on by the dramatics of K.I.D hive-minded units (much like older kids and teenagers, there was always something going on between one and another). The older, more responsible individual UNO had been given an honest amount of respectable power regarding how to handle the situation, and while other lab technicians weren't shy with their side-eye glances and queries towards her choices, Yangs' word was law in the underground laboratory, and none offered to step-up and voice any opinions outright. Surely, amongst themselves, they would survive a weekend without her having to become involved in every single conversation.
Yang couldn't help but let out another deep whooshing sigh, coming up on the sights of the running water dead ahead. Her thoughts from earlier in the day broiled up, remembering how distraught, anxious, exhausted, and angry at everything she'd been. Now that she was here, having made the decision in the final hours of work instead of heading straight to bed; it was revitalizing! _______________ Yang: 17 [10/20] Bathalgor: 0 [3/5]

Twilight-Claw: The jewelry on tail or at the head definitely tends to be their most recognizable feature for a Mosca, and sadly their pharaoh chin piece as well. XD
Nov 13, 2023 15:21:07 GMT -6
Zenjesi: Your peanut costume is hilarious and adorable too!
Nov 13, 2023 15:14:29 GMT -6
Zenjesi: Yes you're correct! I guess I did a decent enough job with the drawing!
Nov 13, 2023 15:05:27 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: It still looks good on Synkka. She is a shaman Mosca I'm guessing? Its mostly the tail that makes me think of it.
Nov 13, 2023 15:00:42 GMT -6
Zenjesi: I definitely like Spectral's the most too! I sort of cheated by drawing Synkka with a cloak because I do not know how to draw feathered wings, haha ^^'
Nov 13, 2023 13:45:15 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Which one do you like the most out of the three you made?
