PostSubject: Dragons and Maidens   Fri Sep 09, 2016 10:16 pm

First topic message reminder :

Killian is an ancient black dragon who's become to be a bit of a nuisance in the area he lives in. Renee meanwhile is stuck in an arranged marriage to the leader of the village, and is unable to escape his clutches. So she spends her days wandering the forest to free the animals from traps, and sketch.

He tapped her nose gently. “A squirt like you needs a shorter name, don’t you think?” Humming softly, he cut up her food, watching her with gentleness in his gaze. “That’s your fork, and that’s your knife. You use it to eat with.” Explaining what everything was for wasn’t a new occurrence either, and he was patient as always. Nudging the plate to her, he gave a nod. “I’m sure we’ve got some fish in the freezer I can thaw for her later. Would she be okay with that?” Humming softly, he made his plans for the next day, working in the now needed shopping trip around his horses and having the girl tagging along. It was going to take longer to do everything, but that was alright. It was the slow season with the horses, luckily, and he could take the time.

Glad that she had an idea of where the key was, Killian winged his way to the village, settling down in the burnt forest to hide while she searched. Hoping that she’d be able to find them, and that she wouldn’t get caught, it was an anxious hour or so wait for him, and he nosed her in relief when he spotted her scampering back. Taking heed of her urgent note, he leapt into the air without questioning it, waiting until they were high in the sky before settling out and glancing back at her. Everything’s alright?

Giggling when her nose was tapped, the little girl with bright green eyes watched him cut up her food, staring rather dismissively at the strange things he said she should eat with. She was quite of the opinion that fingers were best, that was until she discovered that the food was hot, dropping it instantly and tucking her fingers into her mouth the small girl frowned. She'd never had hot food before, it'd always been luke warm or cold, not sure how to use the strange silvery things he'd put in front of her she sat there quietly deciding she'd wait until it was cold and then she'd be able to eat it.

The little dragon just squeaked a reply around the rattling keys holding on tightly, finally once they'd found a safe spot to land she hopped down and carefully used the keys on the various padlocks on the muzzle. Soon enough she'd figured out how to use her paws and mouth to work the keys the best and had unlocked the final one, dropping the keys she bounced about a little excitedly flapping her wings as she did so. Far to small to learn how to fly for now it was just to show her excitement, attempting to help him pull the muzzle off to her disappointment she was just too small to help. The dark blue dragon carefully clambered up onto his muzzle and trotted along to scratch him between his eyes, his favourite place she'd learnt as a human. Not knowing if she'd ever be able to be human again she didn't mind, she was with the large dragon and so she was safe

Smiling as she discovered it was hot, he offered her a cool cloth for her to soothe her fingers. “You’re okay, kiddo. Try them out. Food’s usually better hot, and that way you don’t burn your fingers next time.” However, he didn’t push her, letting her figure things out for herself. He’d learned from his mum that it was a better way for fosters to get more comfortable with things. It was a quiet meal otherwise, and once she was done, he cleared the table. Once she was more settled, she’d get some chores, but for now she was just meant to settle in to the house and his routine. “Finished? Bedtime, squirt. I’ll bet you’re tired after today.”

Landing, he rested his head on the ground so that she could get to the various padlocks. Half closing his eyes, he waited patiently until she was done, and snorted in amusement when she discovered that she was too small. Confident that she was balanced on his muzzle, he used his paws to pry the muzzle off, immediately yawning in glee. It had been so long since he hadn’t had any silver on him. So glad to be free of pain, he set fire to a few of the trees around him, watching the now black tinged flames climbing. Ignoring the pain from the burns on his muzzle, he let his shadows twist and dart around him and Renee, pleased to finally be free and not under the confines of the silver. The black wispy things gathered around his paws and muzzle, exploring the blackened forest. The younger ones inspected Renee, curious about the tiny blue dragon, until Killian snorted and they darted away again chittering cheekily.

ending up with the fork in her right hand she stabbed the food and blew on it before popping it into her mouth, discovering that he was right that the food tasted better warm she happily scoffed the rest of it. Once full she followed him about as he cleared the table and didn't complain about bed time, she was exhausted, tucking her thumb into her mouth she wandered after him and crouched down to check the underneath of her bed. Squealing then giggling as her dragon gave her a fright, the young dragon snuggled itself into her before licking her face, pushing it off of her still laughing she pulled herself up onto the bed and struggled to pull back the heavy blankets and ended up giving up just petting the little dragon quietly looking absolutely knackered.

Squeaking at the black shadowy things she scrambled up over his head and took shelter beneath one of his wings already becoming very expert at clambering all over him like a jungle gym. However she soon figured out that they weren't hurting her and so poked her head back out watching them quietly, smoke ebbing out from her nostrils a sign that she was a little unnerved.

Tugging the blankets up for her, Julian tucked her in, smiling at the antics of the hatchling dragon. “Sleep tight kiddo. I’ll be just outside, and my room’s down the hallway, okay? You can come get me if you need me for anything.” Ruffling her hair gently, he flipped the light off and closed the door, leaving only a small crack so she didn’t feel locked in. Settling on the couch with a book, he passed the time quietly, happy to relax for a couple of hours before he went to bed.

Yawning again, Killian watched his shadows fondly, eventually calling them back to him. Turning to look at Renee, he nosed her gently, so grateful to her for what she’d done for him. Thank you, he murmured, stretching his wings out. The burns around his snout hurt, but he could ignore that. The shadows won’t hurt you. You’re okay. Taking off again, he began to head back to the clearing they’d spent the night in earlier, feeling a need to stay close to Claire. Besides, it felt safe in those mountains, and there was more than likely some caves to hide out in. once he was completely recovered from the silver, he’d teach her how to shift, if he could remember how to.

Letting the man tuck her in, Claire settled down to sleep cuddled close to her dragon, waking up at some early hour in the morning and not recognizing where she was. The girl scrambled out of bed, where was she? Wandering around with her dragon skittering at her heels, she chanced upon Jules's room and remembered vaguely that he was safe. Wandering over and clambering up onto the covers she curled up next to him thumb in her mouth and snuggling close to him, he was safe and wouldn't let anything hurt her. Feeling more comforted knowing he was there, the little girl drifted off to sleep again her dragon curling up on her other side.

Peeking out form under the wing she slowly gained the courage to wriggle out and onto one of her more favourite spots on her giant black jungle gym. Holding on as he took off, she scrambled up his neck using her wings for balance to sit ontop of his head whilst holding onto one of his head spines making soft amused trills

Waking at the soft footsteps, Julian let the girl snuggle in with him. Tucking the blanket over them all, he drifted back to sleep again. Like always waking with the sun, he slid out of the bed, leaving her asleep in it, and headed out to do his morning chores, bringing in the eggs and feeding the dogs who barked eagerly. Coming back inside, he hummed softly as he made himself brekky, absently doodling a list of what he needed to get done that day. Once the kid was awake and fed, they’d go out and get her some more suitable clothes for the farm, and then he had some horses to keep working on, so maybe she’d be able to sit and watch, or he could let her have a play with the dragons that roosted in his barn. Either way, it was all up to her, he wasn’t going to force her to do anything at this point in time.

Fast asleep until the dogs barking awoke her, Claire sat up and looked around with bleary eyes, scrambling out of bed and messily making it where she'd slept the child trotted into the living room. Her thumb was tucked into her mouth finding security in the simple motion. Brightening up slightly when Julian returned she stuck herself right next to him occasionally accidentally getting in the way, her dragon sat perched on the back of a chair. Soon enough sitting at the table tucking into some toast, the rather elegant dragon lay across her mistresses shoulders grooming its paws, it'd hunt for rats in the barn later. Soon finished and having jam smeared over her face the child grinned up at Julian who she'd taking a liking too very quickly due to how kind he'd been to her already "Wash we gonna doing today?" Claire asked with a toothy grin.

Moving around the small girl with practice, he ruffled her hair gently as he made her some brekky. When she was done, he passed her a cloth to wipe her face. “Wipe your face, then we’re going to go out and find you some proper clothes and shoes, okay?” Hopefully she wouldn’t be too overwhelmed, but he could deal with that. “That way you won’t get blisters again, and it won’t matter if the horses get your clothes all dirty. Ready to go? Your dragon will have to stay here, she won’t be allowed in the shops. But I’m sure she’ll find somewhere to amuse herself and not get into much trouble?” Hunting down his hat, he settled that on his head and took her hand once she was ready to go. “Right, in the truck, kiddo. Let’s get a move on.”

Taking the cloth and wiping her face as best as she could, the little girl nodded "Otay!" she felt rather safe here and so was happy to do what the man wanted. The idea of not getting blisters again was quite appealing to her as well, a little unhappy when he mentioned that her dragon would have to be left behind, River simply licked her mistresses cheek and slipped outside to go hunt the rats it'd been considering as breakfast earlier. Feeling a bit better that River would be okay she trotted with him her little hand in one of his larger ones. Clambering up into the truck rather determinedly she was all smiles, a rather happy by nature child, especially since she was somewhere that had horses and she felt safe. Standing on the seat to better peer out the window, she rather contentedly took in the scene before her, picking out the horses that she could see and trying the count them

Ruffling the girl’s hair as he got in the truck as well, Julian started up the engine. “Sit down, squirt, and put the seat belt on. You can count the ponies later.” Once she was all secure, he headed into town and soon found a parking spot. “Alright, out you pop. Let’s find you some clothes that’ll stand up to the farm work.” Taking her hand again, he found the normal store he went to, and got stuck into finding her some clothes that would work, making it fun for her so that she wouldn’t feel too scared. He was still very curious about the seemingly wild dragon that had deposited her at his farm, but he wasn’t quite sure the best way to ask his questions now. She was such a little thing, it was better to let her settle in for now.

Doing as she was told, it took her a moment to fiddle with the seat belt and click it in, kicking her feet back and forth while they were driving into the small town she happily unbuckled herself and hopped out. Happy when her hand was in Julians as it made her feel safe she made sure to stay as close to him as she could, she didn't like the strange people and as a result quickly became rather withdrawn only nodding or shaking her head. Responding better when he made it fun she gave yes or no answers, she didn't particularly seem to care what the clothes looked like as long as they were comfortable, a bit more fussy when it came to shoes she insisted quietly that she didn't want ones that'd hurt her feet. Soon enough they were back home and her feet were securely shod in a pair of study boots that she was happy with, hopping out of the truck she ran to find her dragon and once finding the sleek thing hugged it and prattled away happily about everything that she' dseen an ddone iwth julian that morning.

Pleased that the little girl was settling in nicely, Julian let her play with her dragon while he got some work done with a client’s horse, going over what it was afraid of, and why he’d been asked to deal with it. Discovering that it was dragons that spooked it the most, he left it in the round yard for a bit to settle down, and went in search of the girl. Her dragon seemed more intelligent than his rat catchers, and he wanted to know if the pair would help him out. “Hey kiddo, want to help me with this horse that someone’s asked me to train?”

It'd been a couple of weeks since he’d been freed from the muzzle, and the silver burns had finally all healed. The two dragons had found a good cave system deep in the mountains near where Killian had dropped off the tiny girl, and the black dragon was currently sunning himself in the warm afternoon sun. Stirring slightly as he thought of something, he gave Renee a glance, kneading at the rough rock to turn it into sand and make it softer to lie on. Do you remember how to turn human again, little one? he asked her quietly, yawning widely as he roused himself properly. There was the faint smell of humans on the wind, but it was so faint that he dismissed it. They were safe in the canyons, and wouldn’t be found without warning at all.

Sitting outside the barn on some grass, the girl was carefully brushing her fingers through the thick mane that ran down her dragons spine. The dragon in question was stretched out and purring softly, its eyes flicked open as Julian approached and coiled itself up next to Claire with a soft growl not liking being touched by others who werent her mistress. Looking up at the growl a sunny smile appeared on the resilient little girls face, beaming a greeting at him, her green eyes lit up at the suggestion that she could help him train a horse. Scrambling up onto her feet the four year old petted Rivers head "Yesh! Sh-Shounds like fun! What we doing?" grumbling that its grooming ritual had been interrupted the dragon remained at her mistresses side hoping that she'd soon resuming the soothing movement. The dragon was slow to trust, and wary of Julian which conflicted with the little girls apparent trust in him, she'd never been around someone who gave her attention like the stockman had and so she'd quickly decided that because he was nice to her he was ok. River on the other hand remembered what Ice had done to them both and wasn't completely convinced that the man wouldn't try to do the same.


The little blue dragon had grown a fair bit and was about twice the size she'd been when he'd first rescued her, currently arranging rocks so they looked nice, she was distracted from her little game by the voice of the large black dragon. Turning and scampering over to him, she bumped her head against him in greeting, rather fond of the dragon who's size far outmatched hers. "I don't know how, I've tried too but i haven't been able too" it had been a little hard as she loved her art so but had been unable to do any of it while stuck as a dragon. Her blue gaze flicked over to the old scarred up leather satchel that she'd rescued when she'd fetched the key for his muzzle. Clambering up him, now used to using him as a jungle gym, she settled herself on his back and ran her tongue over his scales a few times in a grooming manner, her feathery wings were folded in close to her body keeping them safe and unharmed. Life wasn't so bad as a dragon, she had him after all, she wasn't alone and they were safe where they were, her grooming licks soon turned into affectionate nuzzles

Grinning at her, he studied the wary dragon with a curious look. “Well, the horse I need to train is very scared of dragons. Your River seems like she’s very calm, I was wondering if you two would be okay to help get the horse used to dragons? It won’t take long, because I don’t want to overload the mare. And you don’t have to if you don’t want to.” Feeling his ponytail starting to fall out, he sighed, and held his hat in his teeth while he redid the tie waiting for her and the dragon’s response. “You can say no and keep grooming your dragon if that’s what you wanna do, I don’t mind.”

Nosing her gently, the huge dragon watched her fondly as she clambered over him, and nuzzled her gently. It shouldn’t be too hard for you, you haven’t been a dragon that long. Yawning and letting the sun glint off his huge teeth, he settled down a bit more to explain how to shift to her. Pull up memories of what it’s like to be human, and walk on two legs. Things that you like doing as a human, like your drawing. Those things help. Nudging her, he blinked with a slightly soft expression on his scaley face. Best try it on the ground, little one. Saves the risk of falling off me. It’s a bit of a drop now.

Tilting her head as the man explained that the horse he needed to train was very afraid of dragons, not really understanding how something could be afraid of dragons, being so close with a few dragons she had no fear of them. Looking at River the two talked without words before Claire looked up at the man again, giggling softly when he kept his hat in his teeth while retying his hair. “River shaysh it’sh Otay, We’ll help” rather chipper the little girl rubbed her dragons muzzle quietly talking to her underneath her breath. The ocean dragon nudged its girl its green eyes matching its mistresses, a soft chuff escaped the dragon before it stuck its tongue in the girls ear making her squeal and push her away. Scurrying around to hide behind Julians legs she stuck her tongue out at her friend who just snorted and flicked the tip of one of its long whiskers, the small child hugged one of the mans legs “Nyah! Can’t get me shneaksh sharper!” managing to mangle sneaky serpent rather adorably she giggled more than ready to either run or clamber up Julian as best as her small frame would allow.

More than ready to nap on him, she opened her blue eyes to watch him and listen quietly to his voice, she supposed she could try think of those things, a soft laugh left her maw when he advised she try it on the ground. It’d always been a ‘bit of a drop’ for her and his light use of words amused her, scrambling down renee perched herself on one of his front paws blowing some smoke at him. Too small to learn how to breathe fire, smoke was the best she could do right now, her features became serious as Renee started thinking of what it’d been like being human, paying special attention to drawing. Lingering on memories of him being her main focus, the little dragon remained sat on his paw for several hours just remembering and thinking, eventually through her sheer pig headedness when it came to seeing something through the dragon became a girl again. Looking at her hands for a moment she practically beamed up at the giant beast that had become her friend, “I did it!” quite proud of herself for being able to do it she hopped down off of his paw to where her things were that she’d brought with her and pulled out her drawing pad to begin drawing herself as a dragon as seen in puddles and ponds along their way.

Smiling at the antics of the pair, Julian settled his hat back on his head and reached down to tickle the girl cheekily. "Gotcha!" Laughing at her reaction, he swung her up into his arms, glad that she was settling in so nicely and was happy at the farm. "Okay, so what I need you to do, kiddo, is stay at the fence. I don't want you getting hurt by the horse, okay?" Beginning to head back to the round yard, he glanced over his shoulder to see if the dragon was coming along. "And then if River is okay with it, her coming into the yard to just let the horse see her and maybe sniff at her. We'll be going slowly so we don't scare the mate more. All make sense to you both?" He propped her on top of the fence, watching the horse as she pricked her ears and came over to sniff and say hello. "You can pay her, she's very friendly."

Yawning as she got settled on his paw, the huge dragon rested his head back down on the ground, shutting his eyes to doze while she thought about it. He didn't doubt that it would take a while, it was her first time shifting after all, and she had to work out what it felt like. Opening one eye when he felt the shift, he snorted gently at her, nuzzling her softly with his snout. So you did, little one, he murmured, watching her curiously. Next step is turning back into a dragon, then getting good enough to do it in a few seconds. But it takes time. And if she got stuck for too long in one form, then it would become too hard for her to shift again. Shifting in place uneasily, he wondered if he could even shift back any more. It had been so many years, he'd lost count, what with belonging to Ice, and then being bound in silver. He hadn't had a chance until now to even contemplate being human again. Deciding that it wasn't important, he rested his head next to her as she drew, watching. After a few moments, he shared a few memories of his own with her, so that she could see what she looked like as a dragon from his point of view.

Squealing with laughter as she was tickled, the little girl’s hands grasped hold of his shirt when she was swung up into his arms, leaning into him the small child couldn’t help the wide cheeky grin that was spread over her features. The dragon followed the man and child watching him rather warily, the quiet creature didn’t trust anyone easily and was very hesitant to accept this man easily. Her prime concern was keeping the child safe, and if that meant raging and destroying the farm then she would. Glancing at the man when she was sat down on the fence she reached out not wanting him to let her go, looking at the mare as it pricked its ears and wandered over to her to sniff at her, her face lit up again and she reached out to gently stroke the mare “shoft noshe” she commented before giggling as the animals sweet breath washed over her. Surprisingly gentle with the mare she continued to pet her until River caught up and slipped around the round pen stepping through a space in the boards to sit down and watched. Her mistress was happy here, she seemed to genuinely like the man in the hat, Claire wanted to help him and so the dragon would help for Her sake. She often called the girl Claire instead of Karliah the name having always irritated her, it was the name that Ice had given her, a name to control her a name to signify what she was to the cold cruel woman. The name Claire was similar but different, it was a name of freedom that signified their escape, it already signified her new family, the dragons and this man. She would talk with the man once he had finished with the horse and with her mistress, there were things she needed to say to him and have him hear.


Perking up when he shared memories of what she looked like to him, she began altering a few points of her drawing, all the while humming, without realising she began to sing the song that had always soothed her. It was a song about the sea that was so sweet so gentle that it was a song she planned to sing to her own offspring one day. Once she’d finished her drawing she looked it over rather contentedly pleased with what she’d managed to draw, the woman went over the pencil with a pen, once that was done she erased the pencil and smiled down at the picture starting to add some colour. Working diligently and continuing to sing to herself, Renee lost track of time and lost track of what she was singing, so focused and interested in the colour and detail she was adding to the self-portrait. When she was finally done, the woman smiled up at the dragon, closing the sketch pad and jumping off the paw of the dragon, Renee tucked it back in its satchel and returned to the large black dragons paw. Clambering up to sit on his muzzle she began scratching one of his favourite spots, happy to sit and scratch for a while.

Stroking the mare as well, the stockman kept a firm arm around the girl’s waist, keeping her secure on the fence. “You’re okay, kiddo. I won’t let you fall.” Spotting the dragon slipping into the yard, he kept his attention on the mare as she froze in fright before trotting away, her tail and nose held high. Soft worried snorts came from the young thing as she faced the dragon, her ears tilted forward as far as they could go. Julian didn’t move from his place at the fence, letting the mare work things out in her own time before he interfered. “See how she’s keeping her eyes on your dragon? It means she can see what she’ll do in case she’s a threat.” Glancing at the girl, he spotting the tell tale signs of the start of a sunburn, so he dropped his hat on her head to try and prevent it from getting any worse. “The longer River stays in there and doesn’t make herself seem like a threat, the more the mare will relax and become more comfortable around her. Maybe even start going towards her to investigate. That’s a good thing, it means she’s curious rather than scared.” He gave the mare a few more minutes in with the dragon before he lifted the child down to the ground again. “Thank you, River. That’ll be okay for now. We don’t want to overload her.” Ducking through the fence once the dragon was outside again, he caught the mare and rubbed her nose, murmuring to her softly to settle her again. Pushing stray wisps of hair out of his face, he took her out to give her a quick grooming and then turned her loose into her paddock again. “Having fun, kiddo?” Holding out his hand to her, he began to head for the house. “Lunchtime I reckon. And I think you need a name you like. Why don’t you choose what you want me to call you, hm?”

Quite comfortable in the sun, the soft humming and then singing lulled the huge dragon into a light doze, his eyes closing and only the sound of his breathing showing that he was still alive. He was pleased that she was human again, it seemed to be what she wanted more than being a dragon. Only waking from his doze when she moved, he yawned and stretched, being careful not to dislodge her from her perch on his muzzle. Finished, little one? he asked softly, his eyes half closing his response to the scratches. Human fingers could get to the itchy spots so much easier than his claws could. He settled down again, quite content for her to keep scratching there forever, although a thought occurred to him and he opened his eyes again. While you’re there, how’re the wounds from the muzzle healing? They were itchy, and although he did his best to not scratch them, it was hard most of the time. Shuffling his wings more comfortably folded to his sides, he watched his shadows darting around the clearing that they’d made home. There was a good cave system hidden rather close, and it didn’t seem like humans came around here very often. Though if Renee was human again, she was going to have to venture into town to get whatever supplies she needed that they couldn’t get on their own.

Watching as the horses behaviour changed when River entered the pen, Claire was intensely curious as to what was going on, listening very carefully as Julian explained why the mare was staring at her dragon with its eyes popping out of its head. Squeaking when a hat was dropped on her head, she lifted her little hands to push the brim up so she could continue to watch what was going on. During the entire interaction, River had sat down in the pen, completely ignoring the mare and starting to groom herself which Claire had long discovered meant that she was pointedly ignoring something. Listening as he explained the longer River stayed and didn’t seem like a threat the more the mare would relax and become curious rather than scared. Holding onto him again when he set her down, she watched as River left the round pen and wandered off, Claire opted to turn and trot after Julian trying to help brush the horse too. Brightening up and giving Julian a big smile when he asked if she was having fun, the girl replied enthusiastically “Yesh! Losh of fun!” taking his hand when it was offered to her, the child trotted along trying to keep with his long legs with her own small ones. Lunch sounded like a good idea she was so hungry, managing to skip along next to him humming, looking up at him the little girl considered him before thinking it over. Heading inside and still wearing his hat, she struggled to get her shoes off, but managed after some good tugs, heading for the kitchen and not being very pleased with the fact that she was too short to do much she ended up sitting on the pleasantly cool tiles with a sigh. Thinking everything over quietly, the black haired toddler finally picked a name “River callsh me Claire” it was an easy to say name, well easier than Karliah which in her voice usually ended up very garbled and difficult to understand. Having no clue that her lisp meant she spoke differently to anyone else, the child was rather innocent in the ways of the world, River soon turned up again and made itself comfortable on one of the couches with a sigh watching her mistress quietly. Noticing her dragon, Claire got up onto her feet and trotted over taking off the hat to show it to the reptile “Look Wiv! Itsh a hat” putting it on the dragons head despite the dragons look of disapproval, Claire giggled to herself at the dragon in a hat before taking the hat back and putting it on her head again very proudly. Remembering that the man of the house was making lunch, she trotted back into the kitchen to grin up at him rather hopefully “Hungy!” she liked this place, there was pretty ponies and the man was kind to her, gave her attention as well as food and so she liked him.


Giggling as he settled down obviously enjoying the scratches, Renee carefully looked over the wounds once they were mentioned. Wincing at some of the wounds, the woman very gently brushed her fingers over some of the worser wounds and went still as the wounds started to heal underneath her fingers. “Wow, I touched them and they healed a little Killian” rather amazed and shocked at the fact that she’d been able to help his wounds, she wriggled back to sit at the end of his muzzle. She liked the caves and remoteness out here, however she liked being human it was what she was used to, carefully making her way back down to the ground she dusted off her hands and sighed to herself. The idea that she’d been able to heal him a little, meant so much to her – yes she’d healed him with her saliva however doing so with her hands as a human just blew her mind a little. Looking up at the huge black dragon, her deep blue eyes glittered and easily told of her feelings and thoughts, she wanted to get some more art supplies the ones she’d brought with her hadn’t exactly fared well during their travels with her. Not that she had any money to buy anything, sighing a little at that thought, she looked down and moved over to her satchel where she sat down and went through the contents of it.

It'd been an easy couple of weeks with the girl, she’d settled in nicely, and seemed to be quite happy staying with him. She’d only recently got a tiny list of chores for her to do each day, and it seemed to be helping her settle in more, being able to help him around the farm. After a long day with the horses, and keeping her out of trouble, Julian had settled her safely into bed, heading to bed himself. He wasn’t likely to wake from any noise during the night, and Claire knew that she had a door to outside if she wanted to stargaze at any point in time.

It was an odd sensation, the wounds healing themselves, and the big dragon shifted slightly, unsure if he liked the sensation. However he stayed still for her, allowing her to do what she wanted before she climbed down again. Brushing his nose against her cheek as gently as he could, he spoke affectionately to her. It’s from your dragon, he murmured, settling down again. The healing abilities have come across to your human shape. Studying her for a few moments, he blew a couple of smoke rings, turning his gaze to watch them float up into the sky. Do you need to head into the town for anything? It seems to be a smallish one. You wanted more drawing supplies, didn’t you? He yawned, the sun glinting off his ivory-hued teeth, and a few of his shadows darted off. They’ll get some currency for you. He wanted to make her happy, now that she was an outcast with him. She was too gentle to survive, really, and he wanted to make her as comfortable as he could get. While she was gone, he might go visit the girl. It’d been a few weeks since he’d dropped her off at the stockman’s place, and he wanted to check that she was settling in nice and safely.
