Red1263 meets Aster and Iris


Recommended Posts

Red1263 coming in and out consciousness, he hears voices... he thinks.

 

"Hey!... I think he's de..." "... yeah? What ever gave you that idea?" "Well, he fell..." "Yes! When he fell through the ceiling!... Just grab wh... and go..."

"Uhhnn... Who dat? Who dere?" "Whoa! He's alive!" "Ahh!! Run!" Red1263 struggles to get up, searching for his sword. "I'm... I'm still alive! Where are you?" His vision starts to get clearer. "Ohhh... My head... Lousy Gravity Knight... Where did he send me?" He scans his surroundings, there's no one there, but Red1263 sees himself in a winding, but narrow tunnel.

"Huh, weird. I could've sworn I heard other voices around me... I guess it must've been the wind." "Heh, Idiot! There's no wind down here." "SHHH! Shut up you idiot! He can hear us!" "I can hear you! Show yourselves!" Red1263 started doublechecking his gear, he noticed his Crystal shard collection. "The shards! My Sword! Thieves! I'll find you! You can't run from me" "Quick! Run!" Red1263 only barely saw movement but it was enough to see which direction and give chase!

The tunnel's twists and turns doesn't let Red1263 see whom he's chasing, but he can tell there are two of them. The chase lasts a few minutes until he gets to an opening. He stops, scans the area. 'They're here... I can sense the shards... they're close... I think...' 

 

Suddenly there's a flash out of the corner of his eye, something swipes at him! "Whoa!" His legs get kicked out from underneath him, causing him to hit the ground, he instinctively rolls away and jumps back to his feet. "Attacking me from two sides, eh? Smart."

The battle continues for a few minutes until a distant boom caused all fighters to stop in mid action!

 

4.png.06f6085b9a825131eb9da76d362d503f.png

 

"Uhhh... Please tell me that was you." "No... Was it you?" "Uhh... heh heh, ahh, no. Was that you?" "SWEET CID'S BEARD!!! TALKING CATS?!" "Crap... he saw us." "What do we do?" BOOM "That... doesn't... sound good..." the three of them say as they turn to see what was the source of the sounds. What the three didn't realize was that the opening was home to a former sleeping Giant Centipede!

As they're running, Red1263 decided that this was an excellent moment to ask the other two cats some questions in a calm manner, whist running for their lives, "Give me back my stuff!!" "What stuff?!" "Yeah! We didn't steal your stuff!" "I know you have the shards and my sword! Give it back so I can fight this thing!!" "Your sword isn't going to do anything to that thing!" "You idio--" "HA! I knew you had my stuff! Now give it back!" "OK OK We'll help you if you can get us out of this!" "You have to give me your word! Otherwise no deal!" "Fine! I give my word! We'll give your stuff back if you can save us!" "Deal. But I'm going to need your help!"

 

6.png.431541806d839118f03dd988f7c11431.png

 

"Let's do this! It's all about outlasting the creature. Pushing yourself when you're really not wanting to!" "That's great! Because I really don't want to!" "Just follow my lead!"

So life became rather hectic for me lately (hence my absence about 2 challenges ago). But the goal of this challenge is one word: Discipline. I give in too easily to not working out or studying because of a minor setback. Some of these goals are a checkmark everyday, while others require focus and persistence. All of them reflect (in my humble opinion) an act of discipline that I can practice.

 

Bruce Lee once said, "the Successful warrior is the average man with lazer-like focus." This is going to be my Mantra for this challenge!

 

Challenge Goals:

  • 60 Push-ups everyday
  • Read/Study for 30 mins everyday
  • Reach 5 Pull-ups without breaks
  • Live with Aster and Iris*

 

*So one of the things that been the cause(s) of the hectic-ness of my life, is the simple fact that I have adopted 2 kittens: Aster and Iris (pics coming soon). Both currently around 10 weeks old, I'm going to learn how to take care of them and try to establish something of a routine with them as well as maintain my sanity with work, studying for boards and being on-call.

Aster is already giving you teenage-eyeroll energy. 

Aster is showing to be more reserved. Usually the calmer between the two. Which means, Aster is most likely going to be the sassy one.

OK First of all, I went to the Vet today and I have learned something rather interesting. I do not have 2 female kittens, I have 2... MALE kittens! Which would explain why they wouldn't respond when I used feminine terms to describe them :P So rather than Aster and Iris, they'll be known as

 

Aster and Azrael! (I still liked the name Aster, so I stuck with it.)

 

Now to the challenge!

 

Challenge Goals:

  • 60 Push-ups everyday: Done
  • Read/Study for 30 mins everyday: Done
  • Reach 5 Pull-ups without breaks: Will be attempted tomorrow
  • Live with Aster and Iris Azrael:
    • Took them to the Vet for their vaccine shots, Bought pet insurance, and pre-scheduled for their Leukemia shots, if needed.

Don't feel bad. In my family's history are two cats. Claudette turned out to be Claude, and Charlie who turned out to be Charelene.

My former neighbors' cat had kittens. They kept one and named it Little Guy. The problem with that name became apparent when "he" had a litter of kittens as well.

Hey hey everyone! Sorry I've been MIA these couple of weeks. Life has been interesting to say the least.

 

I've mostly failed to keep up with the Push-ups, mainly due to the fact that I've been doing REALLY well with the studying portion of my challenge! I haven't done any pull-ups, nor even gone to the gym, since I've gotten the boys. And living with them has been... something. I thought I was at least somewhat prepared to have them in my life, oh how wrong I was. I've had everything from bed wetting issues, to countless claws and scratches at me to worrying about them, when one pushes the other off of something with height. WHEW! Being a parent is definitely tougher than being an uncle, who knew? 

 

I'm still going to attempt to finish this challenge. Azrael has pretty much bonded with me, but Aster is funny to deal with: he'll climb on my lap, but doesn't want me to pet him and does that whole lower his body move; Or he'll cuddle with me to sleep, but when I'm going to scratch his head he'll freak out, wondering who's hand is touching him, I'm like, "dude, I am literally the only person here with posable thumbs, relax."

Haha, you cats are doing well at maintaining that cat street cred.  If they weren't so adorably cure there's no way we'd put up with their crap :D

Oh I'm not putting up with it, I'm currently finding ways to ensure they stop these bad behaviors, save for the knocking each other over stuff, the boys are surprizingly durable :P But it's all part of their roughhousing. So I don't want them to think that they can't play with each other nor me, it's a matter of how much claws are involved 😆

Hey hey everyone! WHEW! Sorry I've been MIA. So allow me to recap you on what has transpired.

 

Cats are up to date on their shots, next appointment will be for neutering and my job will be to ensure that they don't rip out their stitches. That will be on the 4th of Aug.

 

Push-ups have been on and off, mainly because whenever I'm studying that takes up the rest of my day.

 

Speaking of studying! I've signed up for the 1st part of my board exams (which will be dubbed the First Trail of Orthos) this will take place in Dec. So I have 5 months to teach myself all that I need to do about this subject. 

 

Pull-ups?... sigh... no, I'm afraid not.
