The wind was weaving itself trough her dark hair when she prepared Bashira for her last test. The last ...
She could only pray her girl would finish this test with the same grace she did at her korung test.
Shivas glanced over her shoulder, looking at the sun that was fading behind the horizon. A few seagulls were making noise, fighting over a fish. The sun was casting her yellow light over the clouds and sea, giving each drop it's own color.
"ready?" She said when she went trough Shira's manes with her fingers. The cat purred softly, pressing her head against her owners hand to indicate where she wanted to be scratched.

Shivas curled her fingers around the manes and fur of the giant beast around her. No reins, no saddle ... pure nature, bareback.... it would be a good test for themselves, as pair, mount and rider, to show how good they worked together.
The feeling over the strong powerful muscles under her legs cave her a weird feeling and in some way, it even scared her, feeling how strong this beast was. Bashira could trow her off any second she wanted to, even slash at her, killing her ...
But she had faith in her girl. After two years of training, they got a bond with each other that was indestructible.

The rushing of the sea, the songs of the seagulls and the steady panting of her cat were the only things she heard. She didn't paid attention on the rest, at least not on details. She just had to focus on her place, staying away from other cats in case they weren't so happy with close company. 

Another obstacle was placed on their way and Shivas pressed her knees against the body of her mount. She could feel how Bashira was collecting herself for the jump, in reaction, Shivas grabbed the fur and tried to feel the movent of Shira when she floated trough the air.

Last test for Bashira for her Shedu Pedigree Certificate :la:
I really hope she does well in both races ^^

I'm pretty pleased with outcome :) I first had some trouble with the water, but I still love the overall colorpalet ^^
