Polo + Chay [Mature]

Post  Chaya on Fri Jan 18, 2013 7:02 am

Okay! so this is me, editing it ad make it proper! haha. Finally on my laptop, so things should get done quickly. yay!
And the names in bracets are the celebrities that my characters look like :3 if they dont have a name or a link next to their name thne i probably havnt found the actor who looks like that i imagine thme in my head x3

A guy from USA finds himself facing college, but just before school goes back, his friends are over one night. they dare him to apply for a job at an amazing Equine property in Tuscany in Italy, just for a laugh. The owners of this place are the Auditores; famous for being one of the most wealthy familys in Europe, and known for their incredible talent in the world of equestrian. They just seem to always win, on their exclusive familic breed of warmblood, owned and perfected over the centuries by the Auditore family. It is a tiny breed ONLY ever owned by the family. - They are basically Rock stars of the equine world.
So he gets this incredible, high paying job as a groom/exerciser, and he wants to turn it all down but then his parents talk him into it. So he packs up and leaves the next week.
MY charrie is Ezio.
Ezio has three siblings, and they all live in the beautiful Tuscan house with their father;
Federico - (Richard Armitage)
the oldest. He is very negative, sarcastic and depressed bye a number of tragedies in his life.
Alice (Ashley Greene)
- The second oldest and the only daughter. She is bubbly and cheerful, but in need of company. She doesnt like to leave the house.
Petruccio or 'Roo'; (Peter Facinelli)
- the second son and second youngest. He is incredibly mentally ill with a heightened schiziod condition. Any contact or interaction with people he doesnt know or trust terrifies him and causes all kind of psychological symptoms, which trigger panic attacks, hallucinations and episodes mania. Though once he is comfortable with a certain person, he can be funny and witty and Roo is just over all adorable.
Ezio;
- the youngest son. He was taken out of school at 8 years old when he showed signs of learning difficulties, and started training. He is incredibly smart though, and is a gifted horseman. He is handsome, funny and sweet, but his anger in some situations will control him.
Giovanni;
(Message me for a link to his looks from ponybox? cant do links for 7 days apparently)
- The father. Giovanni is still depressed and angered by the death of his wife 15 years ago. He is usually quite blunt and serious, though under his anger and depression is a loving, gentle and kind man.
Delilah;
- The mother. She passed away from an unknown brain Aneurysm two days before Ezios 6th birthday.
Alina;
- Ezios twin sister who basically left the family or "ran away", for reasons that will be revealed! x3

Emilio 'Ezio' Auditore
Twenty One;

Ezio was born on Friday the Twenty Sixth of November 1991 at the family home in Tuscany, Italy, along with his twin sister Alina. He, like his siblings inherited his mothers stunning, icy blue eyes, but unlike his two brothers and two sisters he gained the nearly exact features of his father with his dark, overgrown hair and Mediterranean skin. he has smooth features, with slightly sharpened cheekbones and a firm browline, as well as straight teeth (from braces as a teenager) and slightly thinner, pale lips. the ends of his hair have been slightly lightened by the Tuscan sun, giving the ends of his near-black hair a caramel/orange tinge. He has a nose piercing which he fills with a small ring around his nostril, and sometimes a small silver stud. He also has an ear piercing, and a tragus piercing on his left ear and an upper-ear cartilage on his right. Ezio has a tattoo on the base of his thumb, in a typewriter font saying 'all for Delilah'. like his two brothers and his father, (and generations before) He also has the Auditore tattoos behind both of his ears - a small picture of a bear behind his left ear and a small hand behind his right. Ezio stands at 5;11ft, and has more of a muscular build. He has much more of an "Indie" style - he wears nice clothes with class when he has to (whenever he's going into the city, functions, dinners etc.) though usually he has much more of a relaxed look. He is usually dressed in clothing from high-end surf brands and denim launches, slightly contemporary brands and even some bohemian-style labels. Beanies, Ray-Bans and an oversized, dark paisley tee with skinny jeans is the kind of outfit you'd see him in, or woolen knits, jeans and boots. He wears alot of weaved wristbands and anklets.
Ezio is quite relaxed and comfortable around anyone. He has a good sense of humor, and can be sarcastic and sometimes overwhelmingly teasing, but it just adds to his fun but cool and 'chilled' personality. Certain events in his life of course have changed him; some of them leaving him sensitive and slightly fragile. I doesn't take too much to make him snap; his anger will override everything. He can occasionally become violent and forget himself, and occasionally it just leads to despair - sometimes it's only exhaustion that can put a stop to the fury. But he is loyal and trustworthy, and protective of what is right and his family. He tries to be a good christian, and believes in pure hard work.
Because of a certain happening in his life, Ezio has a morbid fear of water any deeper then his knees. He occasionally looses consciousness in the shower from the fear and stress, and he often has flashback episodes.
He was taken out of school at a young age when he showed signs of learning difficulties, and instead was started on training. Coached by his father, Ezio was winning against adults on bigger horses at the age of 10, on his 15hh dapple grey mare, Feather. Shortly after his mother died however, Ezio and Giovannis relationship began to struggle. through his pre-teen and early teenage years, Ezio suffered from leukeamia, which Giovanni had also suffered from at a similar age. After struggles with the illness and the physical strains that it had put him under, it has taken a long time to make a comeback - He still has hardly competed since he was 14. When Alina, Ezios twin sister left them, he could only feel worried but also angry with her. The family had to cope with the loss of their sister and Giovannis despair. He has a great relationship with Roo and Alice, but he and Federico have always, and most likely will always have a nasty relationship. He and Alice care for Giovanni who on some days and nights can be paralysed by his depression.
Ezio had a very difficult childhood, but things are looking much better for him now. The only thing he feels is missing is someone else in his life.

((Adjusting his age, because otherwise the gap will bother me. Razz ))

Name: Orion Deverell

Age: 21

Appearance: Orion has black hair, with one dramatic green streak slashing through his long fringe. It is dead straight, and reaches just past his jaw in length, fluffing out to cover his ears in a spiky fashion. His fringe sweeps sideways across his forehead, often covering one eye. His eyes are a brilliant shade of green, toxic and enticing, but since he seldom looks anyone in the eye, this doesn’t matter much. He has a hard, set jaw and handsome high cheekbones. He has several piercings, one at the top of each ear, one on his eyebrow, and two on his lower lip. He is tall and well-muscled from working with horses, and overall a strikingly handsome guy – but still not the type that most people are keen to get involved with.
He’s hardly ever seen without his favourite black hoodie, even in hot weather, and he usually keeps the hood up. Most of the time he wears shades, not so much for the sun as to avoid looking people in the eye, and he spends most of his time with his hands shoved into the pockets of his tattered black jeans. His clothes always seem to be adorned with studs and chains, and it’s not rare to see him with a studded leather band around his wrist or neck.

Personality: Nobody really knows much about Orion. He keeps himself to himself, and for good reason. He’s quiet and somewhat antisocial – perhaps even a little intimidating, at least at first glance, and never really bothers to interact with anybody. Overall, he seems rather the grim and broody type. When he’s with horses, however, he seems to act quite differently. He shows a rare lightness around them, and a sense of kindness unfitting of his dark exterior.

Other: Orion wasn’t always the ‘dark’ character he is now; when he was younger, he was actually quite the social butterfly – always chirpy, happy and bubbly – but if something happened to make him change his ways, then he certainly doesn’t speak of it.

Something of a ‘bright spark’, Orion started college at the age of 17, and after four years of extensive studying, he was ready to move on to medical school, as his Asian foster father had decided for him. However, at the last moment, Orion threw a sudden rebellion, and managed to procure a job at an equestrian estate in Italy. He left from right under his father’s nose, and didn’t even think of looking back. He had been riding horses at a stable near his house for years, and had even reached the point where people paid him to compete their high-level eventers and showjumpers.
He had always had a way with horses, and though his father had never appreciated it, his foster mother had encouraged him (while she was still alive) and paid for lessons from top instructors to nurture his gift. All had agreed that he was exceptionally talented, but Orion had never had the opportunity to own his own horse due to his father’s stubbornness.

There is far more to his story, but for the time being, he embarks on his life-changing journey to Italy…

Orion sat in the back seat of a taxi, listening to music on his old-style MP3 player, with his shades on and his hood up, as always. He was aware that he looked like some teenage gangster from a bad action movie, and he could see the strange looks that the cab driver was shooting him, but he didn't care in the slightest. If people avoided him, then he was happy.
He had managed to get a new start in life, and now he had a chance to reinvent himself.
So he would reinvent himself as somebody who barely existed at all; invisible. Invisible was always best.

"We're 'ere." The driver grunted a few minutes later, startling Orion out of his thoughts. He looked up, and shut off his MP3 player, shoving it back into the pocket of his black jeans.
He climbed out of the car, finding that they had already traveled down the driveway to arrive in an ornate stableyard.
He gazed around, slightly overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of it all. The place was remarkable, but it still held something of a dreamlike feel for Orion. He couldn't believe that he was actually there...
"Oi, Kid." The driver growled irritably, "I don't got all day. Grab your luggage and pay up."
Snapped out of his dreaming, Orion mumbled a half-hearted apology, and pulled out his wallet for the cab fare.
The minute he had paid, the taxi left in a cloud of dust, leaving him standing in the middle of the stableyard with his luggage, looking totally lost.
He couldn't help but wonder how he had ended up here... Just a week ago he had been all set to start Med school, but one fight with Mr. Chang, his foster father, had changed all that. And now, well, here he was.

For a while Orion just stood there, at a loss for what to do, with a sense of lonely insecurity slowly gripping into him. He loathed the feeling, and the moment that the familiar sense of anxiety began clawing at his belly, Orion turned and made a bee-line for the stables, just leaving his luggage in the middle of the stableyard. He would pick it up later, when somebody came to show him to his accommodation. For now, he would meet the horses. Even in a new place, horses were horses, and with them, the world made sense.
Orion stepped into the stables somewhat nervously, feeling rather like an intruder, but his insecurity showed itself as aloofness - just making him seem more intimidating than ever.
Swallowing his nerves, Orion approached the nearest stable, where he found a big bay stallion pacing in his stall, sweating slightly at the neck and swinging his head in an agitated fashion.
And this is why I get along with horses. Orion thought silently as he held out his hand, and murmured a greeting to the horse.
They're just like me. They show the emotions that I'm too scared to show.
The bay stallion stopped, tossing up its head with a wildly rolling eye and pinning back its ears.
"Easy fella." Orion crooned softly, his voice shockingly gentle in comparison to his intimidating exterior. "There there. I'll be your friend, you'll see."
The stallion snorted, pawing anxiously at the ground, but one of its ears was flicked forward curiously now, and Orion knew that he had the horse's attention.
After just a few minutes of gentle words and gestures, Orion had the stallion lipping his hand, its great bay head stretched over the door toward him, and its ears flopping docilely out to the sides.
With all of his attention focused on the horse, Orion had completely forgotten about his own predicament. Through calming the animal, he had somehow calmed himself as well...

()Are you getting that think on pony box where it says there's site maintenance?? I didn't think there would be any maintenance at all on the legacy servers? unless they're taking stuff away o.e ()


It was a sunny spring Sunday at the Auditore Equestre property; so none of them were out working on the horses. They were all waiting to see this new worker who would living with them, working with them and maybe some day competing for them. They only had one other worker, who was a teenager with no experience riding but did a good job on grooming the horses. The five Auditores who resided in the large villa beside the house were spending their only day off, of course doing what they wanted. Federico and Giovanni were arguing over which mares were to be put with which stallions for the next year. There would only be one or two foals this year - they dont breed in big numbers, beause they never ever sell their warmbloods to anyone no matter what the price their offering. Alice was out in the garden behind the house with Roo, talking to him as he put in some small plants. Roo's hobby was gardening, as he no longer rode the horses. He preffered to just care for the horses then ride them, just like he liked to tend to his large garden. he spent most days out in the garden, and if not he was inside writing his second book about the Auditore horses. Alice was usually with him, because her other two brothers didnt appreciate what she had to share and talk about like Roo did.
And then there was Ezio, laid on his bed in his large bedroom on facebook, talking to his fiends who wanted him to come to the beach. He couldn't because his dad had made him stay home, and took his car keys so he couldnt sneak out like he probably would.

Ezio looked to the door of his room when Federico walked in. "the new guy's here" Rico said to him, speaking to him in italian. "okay" Ezio spoke, sighing as he shut his expensive laptop and jumped off his bed, walking to Giovannis bedroom where the entire family was standing, watching him in the courtyard as he paid the driver. "He looks...he looks like my brother did in the 70's" Giovanni muttered to his four children "is that a spiky wrist-thing on his arm?" Giovanni spoke, looking closely at the young man as he headed into the stables.
"He looks like he's going in there to kill the horses" Federico smirked, earning Alices elbow sharply into his ribs.
"He's probably a ready nice person" She said to Giovanni and her older brother "you're just mean"
"are you only saying that because you like what you see?" Roo spoke in his whispering, quiet voice, smirking as he spoke.
"uhm, no..." Alice giggled and looked over to Ezio who just didn't say anything. He didn't want to judge him like the others had done, but he did look intimidating.
"off you go Ezio. dont leave him outside, that would be very rude" Giovanni said with a tiny, cheeky smile
"excuse me sir, why can't you do it?" Ezio said to his father with raised brows
"Because I've got you" Giovanni said to him with a small chuckle and waved Ezio off.

Ezio walked down the stairs and through the large entry room and to the glass doors at the front of the house. He stepped outside to the stables and looked in, seeing a figure wearing a black hoodie.
"Ciao"(Hello) Ezio spoke with a tiny smile, even though this person did scare him. "You're Orion, right?" He asked the young man and glanced to the mahogany stag who was nipping at his hands, hoping for some bread or an apple, or something. "careful, he'll bite" Ezio added with a small smirk, feeling uncomfortable that this person, who at the moment just looked like sunglasses and a hoodie.

Orion heard the footsteps approaching the stable, so luckily he was not surprised when he heard a voice greet him from the entrance. "You're Orion, right?" The stranger asked, obviously attempting to be polite.
Orion didn't respond right away. He took a moment to steel himself, stroking the stallion's muzzle. "Careful, he'll bite." The other man added, but Orion just shook his head.
"He won't bite." He murmured simply, giving the horse a pat on the cheek, then turning away and stepping reluctantly toward the stranger. "Orion Deverell." Came his belated answer, his tone slightly stiff, and wasting no words. He wasn't one for talking, that much was clear. Honestly, he just wanted to stuff his hands into his pockets and wait to be showed where to go, but this man was obviously one of his employers, and since he knew he did not make a good first impression, the least he could do would be to act polite.
"You must be one of the Auditore boys.", he held out his hand, "It's good to meet you."
He thought of adding 'thanks for hiring me', but that just seemed like overkill. He didn't like to interact with people, and this whole meeting was already a strain for him. He just wanted to get it all over with so he could start on his job, and work with the horses.
Work with the horses...
His whole life, he would never have guessed that he would be able to say those words. Horses had always been his sport, his enjoyment, but never his work. He nearly smiled at the thought of how angry his foster father must be.
Yes, that was right... He could not screw this up.
"Will you show me around?" Orion asked, trying to be polite, but still managing to come across as though he'd rather be dragged through a thorn bush than say another word, "I'm keen to get started..." He cast a thoughtful glance down the stable aisle, and added, "Your horses are stunning."

OH my goodness! I am so sorry! we had a power out about 2 seconds before i pressed the send button.
never have i been so pissed off in my life. i had the reply done about an hour and a half ago!


Ezio looked at the young man. he raised his brows when this stranger told Ezio that his horse wouldnt bite him. Ezio wanted to say 'um, how would you know?' but he kept his mouth shut. When the young male infront of him turned to face him, he just nodded "Yes, I'm Ezio" He said and bit his lip. This guy didnt really seem like the nice, bubbly person they'd somehow expected. Ezio shook his hand, keeping a close eyes on the sunglasses that covered his eyes. "and yes, I can show you to your room, but if you'd preffer to look around on your own i'm okay with that" Ezio said to him. Really, Ezio couldnt be bothered with this man. he knew that he shouldnt judge so quickly, but this man seemed to have little respect for him. Ezio turned and began to walk out of the stables "follow me" he spoke as he stepped across the cobblestone courtyard, which was centered by a magnificent fountain, and then up the steps to the large house. he walked in the glass door and headed straight upstairs. He walked dow the hall way and opened a door at the very end and stepped through. Orions room was directly across the corridor from Ezios, and just like most of the rooms in the house it was open and airy. It had windows all the way around the north and west walls of the room, and it also joined onto a small part of the balcony with a small table and chairs. There was a small lounge area withing the room with a TV, as large bed, a walk in wardrobe and a huge bathroom. "Here's your room" Ezio said to him, looking at him closely. he wondered if he would be satified with the magnificent room they had for him. Ezio assumed that Orion was as well off as the himself and the resf of his fmaily

((No worries, I know your pain all too well... o_0 The HORROR! ))

When Ezio introduced himself, Orion couldn't help but notice that he already seemed to be acting colder than the moment he had showed up, and - not for the first time - he couldn't help but be amazed by his own knack of getting on people's bad sides. Not that he particularly minded; it was better that way.

At Ezio's order, Orion followed after him, picking up his luggage on the way. He said nothing, just followed silently with his shoulders held high, and his eyes on the ground.
When they entered the house, however, Orion was forced to look up by the sheer brilliance of it. The place was a mansion, quite literally - it looked like the sort of thing a person saw in the movies, and Orion couldn't help but gape, his eyes wide with wonder behind his shades.
When they finally arrived at their destination, Orion could hardly believe it when Ezio said, "Here's your room."
Orion looked around in complete disbelief, though his expression remained stony in the shadow of his hood, which he still hadn't taken off, despite being indoors. By this point, it was pretty much just habit to keep it up.
He looked around in silence for a long while, utterly dumbstruck by the magnificent room. It was nothing like what he had back home. Sure, his foster parents had been well off, but nothing like this... And besides, he had always been more like a guest in their house, with just a small room for himself. This was... This was just unbelievable!

At last, Orion seemed to realize that he had been silent for far too long, so he cleared his throat awkwardly, and turned to Orion with a sorry attempt at a smile, "This is awesome." He said, his voice actually showing a hint of enthusiasm for once, "Thanks."
He put down his things, then scratched his head awkwardly, wondering what he was supposed to do now.
"So," He said, taking on a businesslike tone as he shoved his hands back into his pockets, "Will you show me which horses you want me to work, and tell me their training schedules?"

Oh yey you're online!
i thought you'd gone and i was like *cry* haha xD

Ezio waited by the door and watched his expression. Ezio was actually wondering what he really looked like under the hood and shades instead of listening to what Orion was saying. he finally blinked and nodded "um... yeah" He spoke, even though he had no idea what he said, but when his brain had finally registered it, he nodded "oh, yeah sure" He said "but first you should unpack. I can help you if you like, i'f got nothing else to do" Ezio said and then glanced over his shoulder when he heard the hurried feet of his gorgeous sister, Alice. She was always so happy to meet people, but sometimes she scared them with her enthusiasm.

She pushed past Ezio wand walked right over to Orion "Hello!" she squeaked and reached up, giving the young man who stood infront of her and huge hug. "wow, you're tall" she murmured as she stepped back "I'm Alice!" She said and glanced back to Ezio before then looking back to Orion, but like Ezio felt a little uncomfortable with the fact that she couldnt see his eyes at all. "I hope your flight wasnt too bad, or too long. I hate going on planes" she spoke with her happy giggle.

((I never leave. XD Except when I'm riding. And that should be in another hour and a half, round about. Smile ))

"Oh, yeah, sure..." Ezio agreed, "But first you should unpack. I can help you if you like, I've got nothing else to do." Orion shrugged off his offer, and replied, "Don't worry. I'll-"
Before he could finish, a girl suddenly appeared out of nowhere, and tackled Orion straight into a hug. He grunted in surprise, and stood there stiffly, looking extremely awkward as she engulfed him in a great bear hug.
What the Hell?!
Nobody was ever this friendly to him - it was as if she was totally immune to the antisocial vibes he usually gave off, not entirely unintentionally.
Luckily, the girl pulled back before too long, and commented in a friendly fashion, "Wow, you're tall." Orion shrugged, and she added, "I'm Alice! I hope your flight wasn't too bad, or too long. I hate going on planes."
She just chirped on happily, leaving Orion looking rather disconcerted. "I, uh-" He cleared his throat awkwardly, still recovering from the fright of being hugged like Barney the Dinosaur, "It's nice to meet you." He managed at last, speaking in a guarded fashion, "I'm Orion, and my flight was just fine, thank you."
Obviously, he wasn't too keen on making conversation - he would just put up with what was necessary, and wait for them to grow tired of him, and leave him to his own devices.
"So," He looked back at Ezio, "The horses...?"
Yes, take me to the horses, for God's sake. At least I'm good at interacting with them.

haha okay!
i'll probably go to bed when you go out to ride Wink

Ezio laughed quietly to himself when Alice crashed in and hugged him. she always forgot that others weren't as happy to talk as her. Alice was one of the loveliest and most beautiful girls you could ever meet, but she never met anyone. she barely ever left the property without someone with her. she never met new people, and her friends had had enough of her fear of going out alone, so when new people came she was just overjoyed. Ezio managed to shoo her away and then looked to Orion when he had suceeded in getting Alice to leave him alone. "oh, yeah alright" he said and turned around "I think you'll like the horses you've been given." Ezio said as he walked down the hall, going right back the way they had come. "Oh and don't mind Alice. She never sees anyone so she's just excited" he said as he crossed the courtyard to the stables

((Excellent. Smile I'll let you know before I leave, then. ))

Orion had to admit that he was relieved when Ezio agreed to show him the horses. He always got quite stressed and tense around people, especially the type (like Alice) who seemed oddly unaffected by his cold attitude and gothic appearance.
Breathing a quiet sigh, Orion followed on after Ezio, thumbs hooked into his belt.
"I think you'll like the horses you've been given." The other man said as they walked down the passage, and Orion nodded. They were Auditore warmbloods, what was not to love?! "Oh and don't mind Alice." Ezio added, "She never sees anyone so she's just excited."
"Not a problem." Orion shrugged, not bothering to say any more on the topic. He just wanted to meet the horses, and be left alone to do his job. He was a good, hard worker and a talented horseman, but he only hoped that would be enough to override his abrasive personality, and help him to hold onto this job... He did not want to lose this opportunity!
Shaking off his thoughts, Orion followed Ezio into the stables, seeming to relax slightly the moment he was surrounded by the horses.
"God, they're beautiful..." He mumbled under his breath, speaking more to himself than to Ezio as he looked up and down the row of stables, admiring the magnificent heads poking out to look at him.
It was perfectly obvious why the Auditore family's Warmbloods were so famous in the equestrian world.

okay!
and i get email notifactions hwever you post a reply!

Ezio walked right over to his favorite mare, Feather. she was nearly 22 years old, and she was the horse that had taught Ezio to ride and helped Ezio win. Now she was in foal with most likely her last foal. "ciao mia caro" (hello my dear) he whispered to the dapple grey mare before looking over to Orion, who like most who entered this building was in awe. he heard Orion breathe a small phrase of wht nearly sounded like disbelief and pure astonishment. "You'll be exercising four, maybe five of our horses every day except for saturday and sunday" Ezio began "Their names are on the chalkboard by the tackroom" he said and then walked past a few of the horses Orion would be exercising, naming each one "Giaguaro... Quatro... Rio.." He spoke "and the other two are probably out in the fields" Ezio told him and put his hands in the pockets of his jeans.

((Awesome. Smile ))

Orion watched Ezio talking to his mare, and found himself smiling slightly at the sight. There was always something touching about the bond between a man and his horse, and Ezio and Feather certainly had that 'something'.
When the other man turned back towards him, however, Orion removed the smile from his face abruptly, and reverted instantly to his cool, serious attitude.
"You'll be exercising four, maybe five of our horses every day except for Saturday and Sunday." Ezio explained as they walked down the stable aisle, "Their names are on the chalkboard by the tackroom."
Orion nodded, and then Ezio went on to show him a few of his future rides, which he considered with a keen, appraising eye.
He took his time greeting each of the horses, and ignored Ezio's presence completely in the process.
It was remarkable how much more sociable he was with the horses than the people. He chatted away to them under his breath, whispering sweet nothings with a soft expression on his face, and it was clear that he had a way with him. All of the horses seemed to take to him right away, and Orion certainly knew how to deal with them.

When he turned back to Ezio, however, his usual harsh expression was in place, and his personality was as abrasive as ever. "They're magnificent animals." Orion commented seriously, "I'm looking forward to working with them..." He cast one more glance down the stables, then turned back to Ezio and said, "Right then, thanks for showing me around. I'll get unpacked today and start working them tomorrow, if that's fine?" He raised an eyebrow questioningly, even though the gesture was pretty much pointless with his eyes hidden by the dark sunglasses on his face.

Ezio followed Riley slowly through the stables and watched closely as he interacted with the tall equines. The man who stood before him did actually seem to be a competely different person while around the horses. he was more pleasant. maybe he was jsut terribly shy? Ezio nodded when Orion spoke to him "Alright, sounds good" ezio said to the young man. "if you need any help unpacking then just come to the room opposite yours in the hall. that's my room" Ezio said to him and then turned, walking back towards the house.
when he was finally back in his bedroom, he got onto facebook and typed up a status about the 'wierd' new exerciser. he got more messages from his friends, beggin him to come ot the beach. He wished he could, but he really couldnt.

Orion thanks Ezio for his offer, then headed back to his room, and vanished into it. He spent the rest of the day unpacking his things. He had only brought practical things: his clothes, laptop, stereo, camera, guitar and some other odds and ends. The strange thing was, he didn't seem to have anything homely or personal with him. No old threadbare teddy or family pictures on the shelves; just what he needed.
However, as he was about to finish unpacking, he lifted a framed photo of his foster mother out of the bottom of his bag, and stared emotionlessly at it for a moment before tucking it safely out of sight into a case of drawers.
Mrs. Chang had been a good woman, and truthfully, Orion did miss her. She was the only one who had really cared about him for who he was.
Frowning to himself, Orion checked his watch, and found that it was already past midnight. All of his unpacking had taken quite some time, but that was to be expected...
Sighing, he lay down on his bed - once again amazed by the luxurious place he had ended up in when he felt how soft it was - and spent the next few hours listening to heavy metal music on his MP3 Player until he was tired enough to go to sleep.

The next morning he got up early, showever, and dressed for the day in a pair of baggy jodhpurs and his usual hoodie and shades - he simply didn't go without those. He left the house without speaking a word to anybody, and headed straight to the stables. He checked the board in the tack room, then set off to tack up.
By 7AM Orion was already up on his first horse in the arena. He rode the animal tactfully, and it was obvious that he was a talented rider. There was just something about him that made the horses want to give their best, and this much was obvious in the quality of work that he got out of them.

Ezio spent the evening, tlaking to friends, or Alice or Roo. Ro still hadnt gone to investigage this new exerciser and neither had federico, purely because he couldnt be bothered, but Roo was just scared. Ezio watched a movie that his father had told him was a good film to watch, but Really it bored him. it was to do with money or something... and Ezio really didnt care for economics or finance. Ezio got into bed at around 10:30 after doing a quick tidy up around his room. he wasnt a neat freak at all, so he knew that if he did a little as he went that his room wouldstay nice and clean. He watched a little TV in bed before he turnedthe lights off, and went to sleep.
He woke the next morning and showered, taking a long time to actually get in. these flashbacks he had were of a particular memory he had, and it was just terrifying to think about and remember. After his shower, he dresed and went downstairs for breakfast with his family. they usually ate togeather so they could all talk to each other and fill in everyone on news and information. When he walked into the breakfast room, everything was normal. Roo always sat at the opposite end of the table, about 3 seats down from anyone. They could all hear him whispering to what Roo believed to be ghosts. it wasnt uncommon for people with his condition to believe in ghosts and paranormal activity. "Who are you talking to Roo?" Federico spoke nastily. Petruccio just froze and looked away.
"Rico, that was so mean" Alice growled and exhaled "stop being so nasty" She said.
Once Ezio had finnished eating he took his plate to the kitchen and then headed outside to the stables. When he was in the stables he saw a horse missing and then found Orion riding it in the outdoor menage. he seemed like a good enough ride,r that was for sure.

((I'm probably leaving within the next half-hour... And then I'll probably be back after 4 hours, but you'll probably be asleep, so... XD ))

Orion spent an hour schooling the horse, and by the time he was done, he could see a definite improvement in its lateral work, and in the engagement of its hindquarters.
Content with his work, he walked the horse back to the stables, untacked it and put it away. He was far happier now that he was working, and had something to keep him busy. He was always happier when focused...
Tired from his ride, Orion picked up a bottle of water that he had left outside the horse's stable, and took a great swig. It was hot, but he still didn't intend to take his hoodie off. It was part of his identity, and it had to stay. He did, however, leave the hood down. It wasn't like it stayed up when he was riding, anyway.
He took a moment to fix his hair, flicking his green-streaked fringe out of his face, and headed to the tack room to ready his next horse.
On the way, he saw Ezio, and greeted him with a polite nod and a mumble of, "'Morning."

((*Pokes antisocial character irritably* -_- ))

Oops! sorry I went offline! I would of stayed on, but i thought you would have to go and it was 3am haha!

Ezio walked to the tackroom and got out the leather saddle and bridle for Pablo - A five year Old Ezio was educating. it hadnt taken long for Ezio to establish all the basics on him, Turn, go and stop, but a little longer to establish transitions. Pablo was one of those horses who was naturally forward moving. But Pablo was also very unstraight, so Ezio was taking him right back to walk and trott for some challenging lateral work for the both of them. He had been working on it with him for only two weeks and already he had slowed dramatically and had decided that it was just easier to stay in the frame. When Ezio lead the young stallion past Orion and the mare he'd been riding. "morning" Ezio spoke quietly to him after hearing his small greeting. Ezio mounted the 16.2hh horse from the fence. After a 45 minute ride, working on getting him completely straight for now. When he walked back into the stables, he saw Giovanni enter them Ezio had been wondering how this would go; Giovanni meeting Orion.

((No worries, I understand. People need sleep, sadly. XD ))

Orion was perfectly happy with Ezio's noncommittal greeting, and found himself quickly relaxing into his new schedule, glad that he was being left to do his own thing, as was his wont. Unfortunately, it was not to last. Just as Orion was about to tack up his second horse, a shadow fell over him, and he turned away from the Chestnut gelding he was working with to face a tall, imposing figure.
He would recognize that face anywhere; it was Giovanni Auditore, world renowned horseman, and his new employer. Orion felt nerves sizzle in the pit of his stomach. He had heard that Giovanni was not the easiest to get along with, and given that he wasn't very different, it seemed his only hope was the pointless and desperate one that for once two wrongs would make a right.
Fat chance.
Taking a moment to steel himself, Orion let himself out of the stable, and turned to face the man. This meeting would be the make or break of his new career. He had to at least try to make a good impression; if only that were possible for him.
"You must be Giovanni." He said politely, holding out his hand to the man, and looking up at him. He didn't seem aware of the fact that Giovanni couldn't tell he was making eye contact from behind his glasses. "I'm Orion Deverll." He added, swallowing his nerves and doing his best not to be too aloof, "I must thank you for hiring me... This is a remarkable place you've got here."

Ezio watched from behind Pablo as he was untacking him, watching His father and Orion closely.
"Hello" Giovanni said simply with a small smile on his face. Giovanni just shook Orions hand and looked away "I'm glad you like the place" Giovanni said to him, speaking in a voice only a little louder then a whisper. "Did you settle in okay?" The tall man asked, glancing behind him at Ezio. On TV when he was being interviewed at some kind of big competition, or just whenever he was being interviewed he always seemed so sure of himself, confident and even graceful, but here at the Auditore house he just seemed like a different person - completely relaxed and laid back, and he was pleasant enough to be around. That look of regalness he had on TV wasnt the real Giovanni, and it was the same for the rest of them. people expected them to be elegant and confident, so they appeared that way to the public.
Ezio lead Pablo back into his stall and checked his water and hay before he walked over to where his father and Orion stood. "I did a pretty good job of showing you around, right?" Ezio said to Orion with a small laugh.

((That awkward moment when you misspell your own character's last name... *Facepalm* I'm a genius. o_0
On that note, I definitely need my genius sleep, so I'll see you at some point tomorrow. I'll just post whenever I have a free minute. XD ))

Orion was surprised by how different Giovanni was in person, compared to what he had heard of him, or seen in the media. The man's quiet voice was oddly soothing, and Orion found himself relaxing slightly. Not that that meant he wanted to socialize, but he certainly felt more comfortable than he had a minute ago.
"I settled in fine, thanks." He mumbled in response, glancing toward the Chestnut gelding he was about to ride, and scratching its chin absentmindedly when it poked its head out of the stable.
After a moment Ezio appeared, and Orion honestly couldn't decide if he was relieved or horrified by this. He honestly just wanted to be left alone to do his work, but for the initial introduction at least, he would just have to suck it up and deal with people.
"I did a pretty good job of showing you around, right?" Ezio commented, laughing slightly. Orion managed a small smile, and replied simply, "Yeah, thanks."
God, I can't take this awkwardness any more!
"If it's okay, I'm going to get back to work now..." Orion mumbled, gesturing vaguely to the horse behind him.
Without waiting for an answer, he fled the scene, vanishing into the stable and turning his attention to tacking up the horse.

((Now I remember why antisocial characters are annoying. Razz Feel free to just chuck this poor bugger into any situation that could force him to socialize. He's obviously not going to do it of his own free will. Wink ))

(( HAHA awks x3 oh, and do you know how to pronounce Ezios name? xD it's not like you might think x3 aaaand what kind of nasty situations should I put him in? heheheheheee x3 ))

Giovanni just nodded, obiously listening to him but not having anything to say to it. He then just nodded to them both and walked straight to the tackroom to saddle up Carlo. Ezio Saddled up a mare this time, and took her to the indoor menage where the jumps were. this young mare had basically finished most of the education she needed to behave under the saddle and work properly. Ezio was now in the process of teaching her to jump.
Ezio spent the rest of his day working on the horses. He'd finished at around four o'clock, so he went to look for Orion. He needed some help with getting all the broodmares into the stables - it would take much less time with two people. "Orion?" Ezio called throughout the stables, hoping for a response. he really needed the help, and none of his siblings or his father was in sight.

((Sorry 'bout that, we ended up stopping at a shop. Oh, the HORROR! But now there's food, so I'm happy.
Tell me - I'm probably doing it wrong, knowing me. XD
Any situations, go nuts. I'll see if I can think up anything - basically just have to force the poor sod to spend some time with people. Well, with Ezio. Razz ))

Orion spent most of his day working with the horses, keeping himself to himself as always, but doing a good job nevertheless. He was glad to have been left in peace; it certainly made everything easier. He only hoped that things would stay this way... He did not want to befriend his new employers. In fact, he wanted nothing to do with them, aside from the unavoidable professional relationship that had to exist between employer and employee.

Just as he finished packing away the tack for his last horse of the day, Orion heard a voice call his name, and looked up curiously. He placed the bridle in his hands on its hook, then turned and walked out of the tack room.
"Here," He answered, walking out to meet Ezio, "What's up?"
He scratched his head wearily, fluffing his green-streaked fringe away from his sweaty forehead.
"Need help with something?" He asked, nodding toward the headcollars in Ezio's hand.

((I'm back now. XD For good. ))

(( You're from south africa, right? you sound like an english person! haa you say 'bloke' and 'sod' like me (though, i am australian x3)
Okay, Ezio is pronounced Et-see-oh... now, say it with an italian acent HAHA alien ))

Ezio smiled a little when he saw Orion "We have to go get the broodmares from out in the day paddocks right at the other end of the property" He said with a smile, handing him 3 of the six halters. Only two of the mares were in foal, but the other four were going to be monitored for the next few days, to pick the best day to artificially put them in foal. They would get a vet to do it like most springs. "We only have to in foal this year" Ezio explained to him "but we need to bring the other mares up here to watch them" Ezio walked around the side of the stable block where the Four wheeler motorbike was. Ezio drove it out of where it was parked and patted the space behind him, inviting Orion for a ride down to the other end of the property. "unless you'd rather walk" He said to him with a small laugh. Ezio had been able to figure Orion out a little - He was either incredibly shy or just hated socializing. Either way, Ezio understood.
