aries in the mornings

My mother taught me
the distinct smell before the rain,
the promise of cleansing.
Didn’t anyone warn you
I’m what natural disasters
are named after?
I am a river,
good luck controlling me
good luck slowing me down.
There isn’t an ounce of age
to my soul.
—  Michelle K., Aries in the Mornings.
How Would the Morning Go, if the 12 Signs were Living Together!

6:00 am - Virgo takes a shows, scrubs the bath, washes his teeth and puts the tooth brush in a special sterilizing container away from all the other tooth brushes.

6:15 am - Capricorn wakes up and switches off the boiler. The daytime expensive tariff electricity has started, after all!

6:20 am - Aquarius wakes up and goes for a morning run

6:30 am - Leo and Libra are in front of the mirror, fighting for the moisturizer and hair gel

6:40 am - Taurus is having breakfast-Nutella  with a spoon

6:45 am - Sagittarius wakes up and switches on the boiler again

7:00 am - Cancer is making sandwiches while Virgo is squeezing fresh fruit juice. Gemini is still in bed checking his emails, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

7:05 am - Scorpio opens the bathroom door—Libra storms out of there insulted, carrying their toiletry and make up bag.

7:10 am - Aries wakes up and starts the chronometer.

7:11 am - Aries is all dressed and ready and running down the stairs. He switches off the chronometer.

7:15 am - Our Taurus friend is licking the spoon and the jar. There is no more Nutella.

7: 18 am - Gemini has been awake for an hour but is still in bed checking his emails, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

7:20 am - Libra and Leo are in front of the mirror again, checking their appearance for the last time and admiring themselves before they go out!

7:30 am - Aquarius is having a cold shower, because the Capricorn has switched off the boiler again!

7:40 am - Everyone goes out

7:45 am - Gemini comes back because he has forgotten one of his 3 phones.

7:50 am - Gemini comes back again, he has forgotten his wallet this time

8:00 am - Pisces wakes up and realizes he has been locked in the flat!

Hi, my name is Cassie, and I shouldn’t write at two am in the morning.
This drabble deals moooostly with Ary’s self-consciousness and self-doubt. It’s not angsty, but it’s not very exciting either.
Light mentions of zelarise​ & taye-is-troublesome​. It does also hint at Xaan, but probably not enough to count.

Willowy limbs and knobby knees. Ringlets of white blonde and eyes the colour of mint. When she looked in the mirror, Ary could only pick the obvious. As she rolled her weight across the balls of her feet, the priestess’ thoughts drifted to the bamboo she remembered seeing in the Jade Forest – pulled easily by wind as if though nothing in the world could bother it.

What a shame she was entirely unlike bamboo.

If the woman was to place how she felt at the current point in time, she would have called herself a weed. For, as hard as she tried to bloom in the garden of friends and close acquaintances, she found herself wholly underwhelmed by what she saw in herself. Pale complexion did not hold the hue of life; nor did her frame emanate all that was womanly in curves and delicacies. No, her frame was petite and sharp – her bones jutting out sharply from skin covered in thousands of tiny, healed scars. Her index finger hung loosely in her mouth, draping her other fingers across her face as she drank in her reflection and the utterly strange attire that donned it.

In all honesty, no one could fault her for trying. Zelly had always suggested that she try to be more… ‘enchanting’. Yet the way that she did it verses how such a thing looked on poor Aryette – she looked like a lamb trying to be a lynx. She did not have the character, and so it was a poor attempt to imitate something she could never hope to be. It was insulting.

Though it was not as if the lingerie fit her poorly. The contract of black lace to white skin was truly something to behold, and the knee-high stockings were warm and comfortable despite everything else. As she twisted her frame, she tried to ignore how her hip-bones rolled over her skin and pressed sharply to the garter she had fastened to her person. She let her free hand press just above her stomach to feel the tiny lines that arched up to meet her open palm, and she gently shook her head as if though unruly hair might somehow add what was missing.

No dice. A daisy could not become a rose simply by willing – nor could she be them when she was herself. Aryette was pastels and soft lace; not leather, stockings and black. And, while she was the only one to see, she was the only one to decide.

“Nope. Nope, nope, nope.”

Repeating the word over and over, the young priestess grabbed hold of her bra strap and undid it – tossing the item of clothing over her shoulder and onto the bed. The garter was unfastened, the stockings pulled off ( even if she almost tripped doing it ) and it plus her panties were removed and shoved back into the box she had taken it home in. Caring not for her nakedness, she picked up the blankets draped over her bed so that she could kick the box under the bed to join the storage of things one ‘hid’ from plain view.

“…No.”

Standing there for a few seconds, Ary turned her head once more to look at herself in the mirror once again. Long curls draped down over her back, hiding larger scars bought from healing and the various work the woman had undertaken.

This was her body, she realised. And, regardless of how she felt, she wouldn’t get another. A daisy certainly could not be a rose, but it could bloom just as brightly if it tried.

Surely that was what Zelly and Taye were overlooking.

At the old folks home...

Scorpio: *Being snarky with Capricorn but is secretly into him*

Capricorn: *Starting an argument with Scorpio and hating herself for being into him and ‘that damn fedora” *

Libra: *Ruining the fun for Scorpio and Cap by trying to mediate and getting them to “see both sides. She doesn’t even know what the argument is*

Aries: *Tries to break out of the home*

Pisces: *Enjoying her morning water aerobics because her arthritis is bad*

Cancer: *Sits and stares at her husband while picking off flower petals whispering “he loves me, he loves me not,” because she can’t remember him or who she is*

Leo: *Is watching Cancer out of her peripheral vision and not crying out of pride, wishing she would have told her how much she loved her before she stopped remembering her name*

Virgo: *Busies himself cleaning his “grotesque” living quarters to keep himself from thinking about his wife, Cancer*

Aquarius: *Talking with his granddaughter about her new science project on extraterrestrials because the rest of the family thinks it’s silly* 

Taurus: *Takes up residence in the cafeteria wearing her fuzzy slippers and wrapped in a plush blanket* 

Gemini: *Playing chess with himself to hide the fact that he had seven jello shots in ten minutes*

Sagittarius: *Rolls through in a wheelchair with a blanket around her neck like a cape. She made the prohibited jello shots*
