Kyros sat down at the desk, quietly twiddling his thumbs. The room was dark, the only source of light being a lone window with the moon shining brightly through the plain glass. His silence was broken violently, the man gasping with about the grace of a seizing giraffe. As he settled down, he read the title of the book carefully.
'The Sun Is A Lie; The Ignorant Thrall's Guide to Proper Moon Worship.'
The man scratched his head, looking up as the looming figure of Diana could be seen in the moonlight. She let out a heavy sigh before speaking.
"You are to read this book over the course of the next week, and have it all memorized. Is. That. Clear?"
There was a moment of silence, before the man let out a light chuckle. Diana cocked her brow, groaning a bit.
"What is so funny?"
The man shook his head, picking up the book.
"I don't need to read this, but I want to. I mean, I did choose you."
Diana gave him a stern look, her gaze unwavering. After a few moments, her expression softened somewhat.
"Yes, you did... when others thought my new found powers weren't under control, you stayed with me. You continued to summon me to the Fields, undaunted, until I finally became properly attuned to the Moon."
The man nodded, a smile forming on his lips.
"Indeed. I had... no, have faith in you. As you do the moon. You're my Champion, Diana."
Diana looked the man in the eye, no words spoken between them. As time seemed to creep on, she sighed and turned her back to him.
"By the end of the week. Got it?"
With a light chuckle, the man opened the book as Diana left the room.
