Dawn. The beginning of a new day. The first golden sunlight bursting through the deep violet night sky. A signaling for a new day. The chestnut haired teenager would have already been finishing up his morning breakfast and sliding into his thick leather work boots. He had always preferred the mornings when the chilled air clung to his still waking body as he followed just behind his father to the stables. When dawn seemed to take longer than usual were the type of mornings Rory found himself lost in his own thoughts. His bottom lip occupied his teeth as he gently and habitually chewed against it. His father took the lead in getting the stable opened and aired out before Rory shouldered the necessary saddling equipment for the horses. Each horse stirred happily awake as the muscled teen draped the equipment over the interior stable doors. Only a whispered greeting left his, then smiling ,lips.

Feeding. Brushing. Saddling. This was routine Rory had learned from the young age of ten, when he could actively be useful without being considered a bit of a nuisance to those morning routines. He learned quickly how to effectively shimmy and 'dance' around the stables. Tasks, that had once taken him the better part of two hours, had been efficiently finished just cresting into the fifty minute mark. Each day allowed Rory to tweak a bit of the routine because he could never really be satisfied with himself. Even with the praise from his rather gruff father. He led the horses out of the stables and greeted them to the vibrant sunlight that had crested well over the horizon. He smiled softly before mounting the saddle of his very own Sabino mare. He turned his gaze just for a moment to catch his three sisters charged from the front door of their rather quaint barn-like home. Their voices and hands lifted into the air as Rory's mare took off in a brisk run.

Rory kept a quiet demeanor, even while working. At a young age, he was often referred to as Little boy blue, with his head in the clouds. Eventually, he started to simply be known as Blue, which he never cared to change. Even in his almost absentmindedness, he kept himself hard at work. Taking the time to be as efficient and effective in each work day, mostly cause diligence created an almost sped up time lapse. Figuratively, punching the clock in and out of work had always been a brief fleeting moment. He often poured himself into work that his father would physically pull him from wherever in his mind he had escaped. A few occasions, Blue had been known to collapse from sheer exhaustion, but a brief recoup period had him back at it again.

When the work day ended and the sun started to settle along the horizon once again, Rory would take off well ahead of his father. The adrenaline rushed through his veins as the wind whipped sharply around him and his mare. He tightened his thighs and lowered himself as though trying to become one with the powerful beast galloping beneath him. The two raced through the long empty road before the pushed through the threshold of Rory's family land. He pulled gently on the reins, but the blood still pounded hard in his body. In those moments off true isolation before anyone could disrupt it, Rory felt alive.

After that moment faded and Rory closed the stable doors behind him, he followed his father into their home. His mother and sisters greeted with open arms and warm smiles. Their love oozed throughout the entire house and enveloped Rory like a freshly dried blanket. He invited it eagerly as he offered each one a kiss to the cheek. For Rory, he would shower off the heaviness of the work day before he devoted himself entirely to socializing with his family. He adored the feeling of the warm water as it pelted his skin as if the water could erase the exhaustion slowly seeped into his body. After he cleaned properly and eased into more casual loose attire, Rory ventured into the family common room. It was a room meant for a smaller family with few decorations that adorned the walls and furniture looked to be of a secondhand nature. This was the way of families in District 10. He finished his supper, idly chatted with his parents, and entertained his sisters for as long as his body could manage to fight away the ebbing fatigue and longing for his bed.

Dusk. The beginning night. The sky painted with reds and purples with stars that faintly shimmered just barely poking through. Rory kept his bedroom window open as the soft sounds of his world pulled his eyes to grow heavy. He welcomed the dreams for they offered him the chance to be more than just a boy on the farm. In his dreams, he could have been anywhere and everywhere at once. For him, those dreams surpassed his reality. He finally drifted into a heavy sleep wearing his usual soft smile.
