Athena the Cougar
It was just another day on my family’s ranch. We were riding about, when I got off my horse feeling dizzy and sick to my stomach. I sat down under the shade of the giant oak, my horse Katleen was whining and prancing about. I was actually getting worried. I’d never been sick like this before, my family was healthy as horses! My brother came riding around to where I was.
“You alright Lil?” He asked.
“I’m fine,” I replied, “Just give me a minute to breathe.”
Just after I’d said that, a flash of bright light came crashing down. Our horses bucked, dropping my brother and scampered off. I cursed under my breath. I wasn’t feeling well enough already, now we had to chase the horses. But before I could get up, a large cougar with hazel eyes bounded up to me. I don’t know how, but I could tell it was female. Her muscles were tense as she came up to me, rippling under her tan brown and white fur. I reached out and petted her. Instantly, any sick feeling went away. Her coat was velvet smooth, and twice as soft.
“Jake, I think I summoned a spirit animal,” I called.
Once me and Jake got the horses back together, we headed to town. Our horses needed a little encouraging, but they got used to the cougar. The cougar was now bounding along side the horses, scaring all the people in the town. Our town’s greencloak, Reagan, as well as a foreign looking man ran to meet us. The man had an eagle sitting on his shoulder.
“Lilianna, who is this?” Reagan asked gesturing to the cougar.
Before I could say anything, the foreigner spoke up “That, Reagan, is Athena, the legendary cougar.”
The cougar’s ears flicked forward at Athena.
“So that’s your name?” I asked, talking to Athena like she was human.
With almost human-like understanding, Athena nodded. I was still shocked. I shook my head.
Reagan smiled at me, “I always knew you were destined for great thinks Lilianna.”
The foreigner came forward, his eyes as piercing and knowing as the hawk’s. “Lilianna, summoner of Athena, I am Janeri. I was sent here to collect you and any other summoner. You and your friend will come with me.”
The person he was speaking about came out of the building. It was Mason Wood.
