The blonde huffed as she stared at the giant white lion standing over her body, fangs bared as it hissed into her face, not even batting an eye as it stared at her intently. It’s blue eyes glistered brightly as it rose one of its front paws and pushed into her stomach with such force that she nearly bent double around it and let out a deep grunt. ”Gah! Damn you little---" Kitalpha growled, twisting her body into the most unorthodox of curves to wrap her legs around the large lion’s maned neck. The beast roared loudly as its heavy body smacked unto the ground, squirming within the blonde warrioress’ embrace. The blonde however rolled her eyes at the sight of it and started laughing. ”Oh for fuck’s sake, you’re such a drama queen Varuna!” She grinned, letting go and sitting upright next to the lion, who happily wagged its tail and stared at his master’s amused face.
Despite just having met not too long ago, Kitalpha had quite the extraordinary bond with the 6 foot tall lion. Despite not being able to communicate mentally yet, the beast, which she had named Varuna after having dreamt about it, quite easily made itself clear. It looked more dangerous than anything, but when in the comfort of his master’s presence showed a surprisingly childish side. It would be the first time she’d be showing Varuna to everyone at the guild today. She glanced back at the Varuna, who now laid on its back playing dead for some reason. ”Pffft- grow up and get a life, you oversized fluff.” She giggled, giving the lion a rough nudge to make it roll over. Varuna rolled on its side and snuffed, getting back up and shaking the dust out of its pelt; purposely right beside Kitalpha, for definitely no apparent playfully vengeful reason. He was about to return the nudge when the giant lion suddenly reared its head, the playful act immediately ceasing and an air of alertness falling over him. Kitalpha, alerted by his change in behavior, stared at Varuna and then into the direction he was looking at… which was the direction of the guild. ”Varuna, what’s wrong boy? Is something th- VARUNA!” Without a single warning the white lion suddenly dashed off, through the snowy thicket and out of her sight. The blonde was baffled for a moment, unable to apprehend what was going on before the actual situation hit her like a bomb. Aside from the fact that Varuna was so alarmed by something, there was also the fact that a 6 foot lion was now making its way towards the guild hall without anyone to tell the members of Silver Wolf that it was not a target or hostile beast.
”Varuna! Varuna!” The blonde shouted as she gave chase, sprinting after the lion. She was slowly catching up, but still had a long way to go before actually reaching it. When he casually crashed through a small tree the warrioress cursed under her breath and sped up the pace, only to see the guildhall appearing at the horizon. ”Oh Jesus Christ! Varuna!” Reluctantly tapping in to her curse to speed up even more, Kitalpha found herself finally reaching the lion when they were only dozens of meters away from the entrance, and took a leap, tackling the large feline beast head-on and straight into its side, causing the twosome to come to a crashing standstill on the ground. She pushed herself back unto her knees, wheezing as she looked up, only to see a set of familiar faces near her, and one she did not recognize at all. The blonde grinned sheepishly and got up, smacking the snow off if her. ”Oh hey guys… fancy meeting you all here at once!” she said, acting like nothing had happened at all and grabbing the giant lion by its tail as it tried to get up and away from her. ”Oh no you don’t-... Anyway! Who’s our new guest? She looks kinda pretty… like fireworks.” Kitalpha mentioned, giving the newcomer a welcoming smile. Varuna twisted and squirmed to free himself from her grip, and to her surprise suddenly shifted to the size of her head, running off towards the silver-haired newcomer. There he perched his butt down in the cold snow right before her, wagging his tail like a little puppy, leaving Kitalpha to frown at the sight of it. ”Well… that’s a first. I mean like really, he’s never done this before. Who are you---” Kitalpha cut off her sentence and started mentally juggling her words after being reminded of how asking about someone’s identity without introducing oneself had gotten her into trouble before. ”Errr, I mean, I’m Kitalpha! Whom do I have the pleasure betrothing my little Varuna to?” she said, awkwardly sticking out a gauntlet-adorned hand as means of introduction.
