Irene was feeling... really good today. It had been a long, long time since she'd been able to say that, but now it was true. Life had thrown her disaster after disaster and the weak-hearted girl she used to be couldn't handle it. For months, years perhaps, she'd allowed herself to wallow in the pity of what she'd lost and what her life had become. It wasn't until just recently that she'd finally found the reminder she'd needed; a reminder of who she truly was, where she came from, and who she could be. It made the catsune feel stronger than she ever had before, capable of finally turning things around for the better. She was ready to start over, and the best way to do that was to jump back into the swing of things head first.
Ver had needed someone to carry out weekly tasks this week, and since the queen was currently very busy preparing to step down and hand things over to Claes and Meenah, Irene had jumped at the chance to help out. It be a nice boost to her self-esteem, actually being productive and performing her duties for the first time in a long while. She used to be so good at these things, the every day routine of clan life had been ingrained into the very fibers of her being, but now she felt rusty, out of touch. Hopefully her clanmates would be patient with her as she tried figuring things out again.
The elegant winged hybrid had maneuvered herself towards the center of the cave, gently hopping up onto a small bolder so she could be more easily seen. Molten amber eyes flitted around the bustling camp, and for just a second she felt a rush of nerves at the prospect of being the center of attention. I can do this. I am stronger now. "Solarians..!" Her silky voice was weak, quiet, and the femme had to quickly clear her throat before trying again. "Solarians! Please gather over here if you'd like to receive a weekly task." She threw on a warm smile, mentally prepping herself for her first activity with the clan in months.
