[ cope with life - open ]
« on: November 03, 2019, 11:12:48 PM »

roman was determined to do everything on the chore list. there was an unbound determination to impress, to show brock a thing or two - and, ultimately, that ended up leading him to the horses. one of the chores had been to clean up the mustangs a bit, groom them and keep them from looking so unkempt. if nobody else was going to do the rest of the chores, then roman supposed he of all people would step up to the challenge.

the only problem? roman absolutely despised horses.

it wasn’t so much that he despised them, really - he simply preferred to stay away from them. horses were almost completely foreign to roman, or at least they had been before bluestem came into the picture. roman liked to be in control, analytical and able to know everyone’s next moves; sometimes it wasn’t that easy with horses. still, he found himself slowly brushing through a mustang’s coat as he stood on one side, not quite looking too relaxed during this whole task. roman couldn't help but briefly pull a face. the things he did for bluestem.

      Kronos was pretty certain that the most horsey thing that he'd ever done was call somebody a horse - apart from that, he was quite honestly naive to anything related to these big beasts. But, upon seeing Roman had taken up the chore to groom the mustangs, Kronos realized that it wouldn't hurt to go see him. Maybe help but, knowing Kronos, one of the horses would probably kick him in the face.

Then who would be the one with the ❛ face of a horse ❜, huh? Yeah, karma would be a bitch if that ever happened.

And so, Kronos was apprehensive when he sauntered into the barn, raising his brows as he saw Roman almost on edge whilst grooming the one horse. ❝ What do you need help with?! ❞ Kronos announced - and just when he said it was for the best to keep himself away. He confidently strode over to one of the horses, hesitating before patting it on the nose, the horse immediately throwing its head up and away from Kronos.

kronos coming in… definitely did not help roman’s nerves. he turned his head just in time to watch kronso stride over and pet a horse on the nose. the horse didn’t seem at all pleased, throwing its head up as if to silently tell kronos to get off its case. “you could start by not pissing all of them off,” he pointed out, lips just barely curling into a smile even as he sounded somewhat annoyed by the action.

“have you ever groomed a horse before?” he questioned after a moment. and rome liked to think he was pretty great at bullshitting his way through life - however, around horses, he found it hard to act like he genuinely knew what he was doing here. he highly, highly doubted kro would be able to help him any. however, at this point, maybe his good friend could genuinely surprise him.

      Maybe to some, Roman sounded more than pissed off with Kronos' interaction with the horse, especially considering it seemed to only rile the horse up instead. A closed lip smiled curled cheekily on Kronos' lips, twisting his head to look over at Roman before announcing, ❝ Hey! It's just nodding with agreement. You love that boy? Uh huh? Ohh, yes! ❞ He grinned, missing as he tried to tickle the horse's nose, only for it to move away and Kronos to flinch dramatically.

That ought to teach him a lesson.

Roman was really out there asking if Kronos had groomed a horse before. What did it look like? He didn't even know how to address a horse let alone groom one. And so, Duh. He asserted confidently. ❝ Gimme that hairbrush. ❞ He held his hand out, oblivious to the fact that... they weren't even called hairbrushes. This was a disaster waiting to happen.

if rome wasn’t slightly on edge around horses before, watching one move away and see kronos dramatically flinching definitely had him slightly more anxious. “uh huh,” he deadpanned, looking at kronos before turning his gaze away. honestly, he didn’t quite understand why he adored this idiot so much. something about his cheeky grin just got to rome, every single time. god, what a sap.

should kronos calling that a hairbrush a warning sign? yes- well, at least it should have been. however, for someone who was just as inexperienced with horses as kronos, he thought nothing of it. instead he stared at kronos for a moment, and then placed the “hairbrush” in the man’s hand. while he didn’t know about kronos’s own inexperience, something deep down told him he just had to watch this. rome’s gut instinct was never wrong.

      It wasn't Kronos' fault the bloody horse was being a little cheek. Waving its head around like some damn diva. Listen, Kronos didn't know horses. He couldn't read them nor understand their weird and flighty ways. So, of course he'd totally wing it all. And, to his joy, Roman responded by looking at him like a lifeless corpse. Wow, that was the most romantic look he'd ever shared with Kronos.

When Kronos grabbed the ❛hairbrush❜ from Roman, he began to comb through the tangled mane, missing out all the actual clumps of dirt on the coat itself. ❝ Oh, honey. If I knew how to braid your hair, I would've done so in a heartbeat! But, why would I need to know? You see this hair? ❞ He paused to point at his own disheveled mop of hair before grinning and slowly nodding. ❝ It's natural beauty, baby. No braids necessary. ❞

his eyes wandered over towards kronos as the man rambled on to the horse. his gaze wandered to the horse more specifically, raising a brow as if silently wondering how the horse was putting up with him. was the horse even dealing with him? like hell did ro know. “you’re really something, kro.” the words, while they could’ve been romantic, seemed to be rather sarcastic and unimpressed. oh well. call him lover boy.

“just wait until i shave off all that natural beauty.” ever the charmer with his flirtatious ways (flirting that was so peculiar one couldn’t even call it that.)

slowly wandering over, he glanced at kronos’s work. ”hey. i think you’re missing a couple spots,” he pointed out as he looked at all the clumps of dirt. maybe kronos would get to them eventually, but... he pursed his lips and stared at the horse, stoic. then, with a sigh, breathed, “you know nothing about horses, do you...” stated so matter-of-fact it didn't even sound like a question

didn't take the most perceptive of people to notice that much.
