What is this feeling? Its so cold
dark. What is this feeling that keeps making me want to run away from it all? I cant wake up, there is something
pulling me back into it. A darkness
an abyss, something dark keeps calling out to me. Do not push me away young one, I only wish to help you. Accept me and you will never fear loss again.
I finally wake up in panic. I look around and see a dark yellow young dragoness beside me. I look at her long face, her eyes closed. Her horns are short but curl a bit as they come off the top of her head. She had very flimsy spines running down her back and laid gently on her body. My eyes slowly move down to see her tail wrapped around mine. The end of her tail as flimsy as her spines, the shape of it reminds me of the oceans waves. Her wings rested on her body, taking her slender shape.
I close my eyes for a moment and look up to see trees covering the sky, the moon barely shinning through. I hear the dragoness yawn as she opens her eyes slowly and looks to me. Is something bothering you? she asks me. I stare into her eyes, unable to respond. Those golden eyes, they make me wish I could always be with her. Xiuhcoatl are you okay? I finally open my mouth and say, Just a bad dream.
She smiles a little and kisses my paw that is gently on top of hers, You worry me sometimes. You have to stop doing that you know? I chuckle at her words as the look on her face becomes serious. Im sorry Amberyte, its just for as long as I can remember youve always been worried about me. You know if you were older people would call you my mother, I say as I let out a loud laugh. She smacks me on my snout, That isnt funny Xiuhcoatl, I care about you.
I shake my head after that irritating feeling of being hit on the nose. It feels like someone just pushing your face in. I probably shouldnt have said that, she really does like me a lot. I have strong feelings for her but Im too nervous to tell her. Maybe one day Ill finally get the courage I need to tell her. We both laugh softly but soon stop as we hear something. She looks around and whispers, Maybe its a good thing you woke up, I think were being watched. I nod as we both get up, our tails still wrapped together.
We try to walk away as a tree catches our tails and we bump into each other at the other side. We look at each other as she turns her face away from me quickly and blushes. Maybe we should
let go of each other, she says in a soft voice trying to hide a smile under her wing. I laugh a little then hear something again as my face straightens out and quickly release her tail. We both quickly get up and run off through the forest. I hear her panting as we come to a stop.
Do you need to rest? I ask her as I see her struggling to keep up with me. She falls in front of me. She is still panting as I look around making sure nothing is coming. Rest for a bit, Ill stand guard, I tell her as I stand over her. Xiuhcoatl, she whispers as she begins to breathe with a bit more ease. Rest Amberyte, you need your strength. That wound in your leg hasnt healed yet has it? I ask as I lift my back right leg to see the wound on her back left leg. She is laying on her right side to keep the wound from contact.
Its fine, really dont worry about me Xiuhcoatl, she says as she cringes when she tries to move it. Look at that gash, whatever it was yesterday that attacked you when you went to the river for a drink hurt you bad. Maybe its back and trying to finish you now. She laid her head on the ground as I heard her mumble something. What did you say? I ask curiously as I move out from over her and sit beside her, my paw gently stroking around the wound. Nothing, I was just
it was a cough, I was clearing my throat.
I rest my head close to her with my eyes closed. I gently put my right wing over her as her breathing settled. Xiuhcoatl, she whispers as I respond with a small, Yes? She kisses my cheek softly and says, Thank you. She quickly falls asleep as I turn my head to her shocked.
She kissed me, it puts me at ease but
that dream. Who
what was that? Such a cold voice, it sends shivers down my spine. Such a deep
it sounded so unwelcoming
but it said it could help me. Maybe I can trust it
if I can even get in contact with whoever or whatever that was. I look back over to Amberyte, why cant I get her off my mind now? I feel so comfortable around her, more than usual. I guess Im just being overprotective. I dont want whatever attacked her to do that to her again
This night seems endless, I wish I could just fall asleep. Would whatever that tried to talk to me try again? Maybe Im just going a bit crazy. I havent eaten right in a while. Amberyte keeps trying to get me to eat something
but I cant for some reason. Once in a while I will, then shell giggle when I burp. She does have a cute giggle too, I love hearing it. Yeah, thats it, thats how Ill get to sleep. I just have to think about her, and shes right next to me, that should make it easier. Yeah there we go, I feel it now. My eyes are finally closing on their own. A nice little yawn and
Xiuhcoatl, can you hear me? a voice called out. I think its that same voice from before. Yes, it is I again, you fear for her do you not? Let me help you. His voice frightens me, it sounds darker now. I only wish to help, for both of us. What does he mean for both of us? Where is he? I am always with you young wind dragon. If you ever need my help, just close your eyes, and when you open them
all will become clear.
