Reyna Ramirez-Arellano!

Reyna is a character from Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan. She’s one of my favorite characters, so I decided to look for some sketches of her! I found one I really liked, and so I colored it. Original sketch does not belong to me.

not my photo

So the picture above is the original sketch.

And here is my colored version! Please tell me what you think! (sorry for the short post πŸ˜…) Peace ✌

Short Stories

A Plain of Wildflowers — A short story

A breeze tickled my face as I ran through the cornfield. I pushed away dry stalks of corn, the rough skin massaging my fingers.

“Cora!” my younger sister called behind me. “Wait for me!”

I turned around, seeing Emily’s face bursting out of some yellowing corn leaves. “You—run—so—fast!” she pants, leaning on her knees. I laugh, and grab her hand. She looks up at me, and I give her a mischievous grin. “Follow me.” I whisper. She follows me silently, twigs cracking under our shoes. After a while, Emily asks me, “Where are we going?”

“You’ll find out soon enough.”

Emily puffs out her lower lip, and crosses her arms. “But I’m tiiired.” she whines.

“Fine,” I say with a shrug. “I guess I’ll go by myself then.”

Her eyes widened. “No! No! I’ll come!” she shouts quickly.

I grin. “Perfect.”

“We’re here.”

“FINALLY!” Emily yells.

I admire the plain of colorful wildflowers. The blooms looked gorgeous in the sun, the petals delicate and exquisite. I breathed in the sweet scent.

“Beautiful, isn’t it?” I asked, turning to Emily, only to find that she wasn’t there. “Emily?” I called, cupping my hands around my mouth. I was getting a little nervous now. Before I could make up my mind, I ran into the field of wildflowers, scanning around for Emily’s shoulder-length blonde hair and white dress. If only she’d worn a dress a color easier to see. I thought to myself. I look down at myself. My skirt was dusted with a thin layer of pollen, so were my shoes. I trudged out of the plain, my head hung low.

“Cora! Cora!” a voice squealed. Emily?

“Emily? Is that you?” I looked up excitedly, and saw Emily skipping over, clutching Dad’s arm.

“I got Mom and Dad! They had to see this!”

I sighed in relief. “Next time, don’t run off like that!” I scolded, wagging my finger at her playfully.

“We’ll see about that.” she replied, a smirk on her face.
