Mending of body and heart [Private with Sapphire]

Post by Hyruu on Thu Dec 15, 2016 5:42 am

First topic message reminder :

Hyruu swore once again as the harsh wind stung his face. The numerous small wounds he was having were exposed to the wind, and blood was staining parts of his fur near his face.
The day had started well. A warm sun rise, no Shudaar to annoy him, a small hunt, a bigger prey spotted... And then a big root. Before he had the time to realize it his face had hit the tree in front of him, leaving multiple scratching marks on his cheek and broken his muzzle. Hyruu whimpered from the pain, finally reaching the entrance of the Vuari city.
He made his way toward the center, where the healers were. Another whimper, but at least now the wind wasn't stinging him anymore. He reached the healers quarter of the town, letting out another whimper as she rang the small bell that was set there to indicate someone was waiting for a healer. He just hoped that at that hour there was a healer available...

Hyruu stood up, thinking. It was right that he didn't have any idea what he would hunt.
"Hmm I don't know yet. I guess I'll see on the way. Preys have gotten a bit scarce in the surroundings lately, I'll try to head farther and see what I can find." he answered. "So... See you this evening then!" he smiled.

Nodding as she felt the room hoping he would follow as she wanted to check if he could walk alright. "Yep see you tonight take care" smiling as she returned to her desk sitting behind it seemly getting ready to get back to snoozing.

Hyruu warmly smiled at Sapphire, following her for a few steps before he turned to another direction. The dragoness could be reassured, his walking was as normal as it could be, his tail lazily swinging from side to side with each of his steps.
The grey dragon headed toward the outside, navigating among the caves of Vuari. He got greeted by the harsh wind of the mountains as he stepped in the sunlight, barely bothered by the coldness. It was all a matter of habits and thick fur. Mostly thick fur. He extended his wings, pausing for a second before leaping and gliding along the mountain.


Hyruu panted as he released his grip from his prey's throat, blood dripping on his chin. He dragged the prey in a more comfortable spot, and sat down. He was feeling dizzy, and felt the world turning as he took a too deep breath. His ears were slightly painful, the air pressure messing with his head. His fur began to get back to its usual grey, from the camouflaged green it had been. Hyruu had flown down the mountain, up to a point where only few Vuari were going. After all, among them Hyruu was one of the only ones - if not the only one - able to deal with both the Etcan mountain's altitude and the lower altitudes. Well, he needed a while to get used to it though. Taking deep breathes right now was too much for his body, and he had to force himself to take long and slow breathes not to get too much oxygen. And the pressure in his ears wasn't exactly enjoyable either.

But that was worth it. He was internally jubilating from the surprise he would give Sapphire this evening. He had found an adult horse! Such a big prey was already rare on its own among the Vuari, but a horse would definitely be a discovery for Sapphire. After all, they never ventured high in the mountain... He couldn't wait to see her face when she would realize the meal he got her. As he looked around, his grin widened. There were even fruit trees around here! And luckily he had his satchel with him. Time to gather some raspberries! Oh and even herbs there... Today was definitely bountiful.


Going back up to the Vuari was way more difficult than going down. Not only because he had to walk/fly up instead of just gliding down, but also because he had to carry a whole horse and a satchel full of raspberries and herbs. And on top of that the air pressure was against him. His body had begun to get accustomed to the higher pressure and air density, and now he was panting hard to get enough air to continue walking. Needless to say, he was glad when he finally spotted the entrance to Vuari. His chest was moving at an abnormal rhythm, but that would soon stop...
The grey dragon entered the cave complex and soon reached his home. He set the items he was carrying on the floor, and took a few minutes to relax. This had been a busy day. Once he rested a bit, he headed toward his fireplace, and lit the fire using the materials he had for that specific purpose. Not being able to breath fire had its drawbacks for sure... Once he was done lighting the fire, he began to expertedly cut the horse, extracting all the interesting pieces and putting them to grill. While the meat was cooking, he began to use the herbs he had found to add some flavor to the meat. It was a rather simple meal, but definitely a good one.
He was late on his schedule, and as such Sapphire would most probably arrive while Hyruu was cooking his meat. The grey dragon wasn't at the best of his looks, since he had bloody fur running under his neck and multiple small branches and leaves stuck in his fur. He had planned to take a quick bath before Sapphire would arrive, but it was likely he wouldn't have the time for that... And besides, his body was still getting used to the lower air density and he was breathing rather fast.

Later in the evening as Sapphire was getting ready to go out, as she was invited to meet Hyruu for a mean seemly being made by himself. Using some of her own natural flowers she washed her mane and fur thanks to her lovely bath, smiling as she finished off drying while placing a beautiful blue Lilly in her mane. Leaving her den behind she only knew slightly where he lived but no doubt it wasn't going to be an issue.

Walking along she spotting the place which she was invited, waiting outside of the den she called inside "H..hello Hyruu?" looking curiously she couldn't see anyone just yet.

Hyruu was cooking the meat when he suddenly heard Sapphire call from outside. It was already that late? He realized the situation he was in. The food was almost ready but he certainly wasn't! He was still dirty from the hunt! How could he face her in such a state? But he couldn't ignore her calling either, that would be even more rude...
The grey dragon headed toward the entrance of his cave, accepting his fate. He had ruined everything... Hyruu spotted Sapphire, and her sight made him feel even more guilty. Her mane and fur were all carefully washed and brushed, and that flower on her head... For a second he could only watch her, seized by her beauty, before lowering his head in shame.
"H-Hey Sapphire. I'm sorry, the hunt took longer than I planned, and... Well, I didn't have the time to clean myself..." he apologized, unable to look at her.

Smiling warmly as he appeared looking slightly shocked from his appearance yet returning back to a smile. "Don't worry about it Hyruu, I'm a healer I've seen worse" she chuckled blushing slightly as she waited for herself to be invited in. "So... if you want to invite me in I'm sure its alright for you to clean yourself up while I wait"

Hyruu slightly blushed as Sapphire still warmly replied to him. Was she really meaning it? After all it was rude not to be ready when the person you invited arrived...
"Oh, erm, yes, sure! Make yourself comfortable, I'll be back in a minute!" he said as he gestured toward inside.
The grey dragon led the way, making Sapphire enter the main room of his cave. It was nicely furnished, some pillows were set next to a low table. Two thin stone slabs were set on it, empty at the moment. There were multiple items laying against the walls, memories of all the travels he made during his life. This wasn't the usual cave Vuaris tended to have, giving it a slightly exotic appearance.
"I'll the right back!" he repeated as he rushed into the next room.
The grey dragon washed his fur as fast as he could, mostly cleaning the blood and the most obvious branches stuck in his fur. He didn't want to make Sapphire wait after all! When he got out, he was looking somewhat funny. He couldn't have the time to remove everything and as such tiny pieces of leaves and branches were stuck in his fur, even though it wasn't as bad as before. This mix of clean and messy was a bit odd, and slightly comical.
"There. Sorry again. Dinner is almost ready." he stated as he looked at the grilling meat.

Nodding as she waited next to the low table sitting down, seemly Hyruu returned rather quickly she couldn't help but hide a giggle from his comical appearance spotting the leaves in his fur. "No Problem, certainly smells nice. You've got quite a comfortable home here" smiling slightly nervously as she gazed around the room. Lowering her muzzle as she waited, unsure what else to say feeling slightly awkward.

Hyruu tried to smile the best he could, but it was rather obvious he was tensed from the mistakes he made. After what Sapphire did to him he had wanted to properly thank her, but it was turning quite awkward...
"Oh, that? Yeah, it still needs some shelves, but I like it so far." he replied, glad for the opportunity to talk about something else than the mess his fur was.
Soon enough the meat was cooked. Hyruu grabbed the two plates that were on the table and set the meat on them, adding some herbs to the composition. While it looked simple, the efforts he put in it were showing as it looked delicious already. The grey dragon then grabbed a bowl, and set the fruits he gathered in it.
"There we go! This is horse meat." he announced, visibly proud of himself.

Surprised at the amount of meat which he had given her she smiled towards him as she replied "Horse meat? I don't think I've tried that before..." waiting for him to join her she grabbed two fruits from the bowl, placing them onto her plate. "Well thank you Hyruu, It sure does look good"

Hyruu smiled widely as Sapphire thanked him for the meal. He sat at the opposite end of the small table and looked at the dragoness, once again struck by her appearance. She really made herself beautiful... It didn't cross his mind that she maybe prepared too much for what was supposed to be a simple dinner. He was just happy she seemed to already like it.
"Well have a nice meal! I'm sure you'll love it. I had to go quite low to find all this." he smiled.
And he sure was hungry too! That hunt had made him starve, and once Sapphire would have started to eat he would do so to, enjoying the rather tender meat. That sure was better than the hard and less abundant meat the Vuari were used to in those conditions...

Nodding as she started to eat at the already cut meat, using her paws carefully as she didn't want to create a mess. Surprised by its texture as it was much softer than she was used too. "Whoa.. I didn't think it was this soft... It certainly is nice. You... say low? You mean down to the lower lands?" looking curiously towards him

Hyruu caught himself having a very soft purr as Sapphire said the food was nice. For some reason he was really pleased to know she enjoyed it. Way more that he thought, actually...
"Yeah sure changes, right ? And, well, not quite in the lower lands, but at least lower in the mountains. Somehow I can adapt quickly to the air below. I mean, after all I lived there until some years ago. I'm just glad I actually can adjust myself, otherwise I wouldn't be able to live here." he smiled at her.

Tilting her snout slightly as he replied "Oh I didn't know you once lived down there.. whats it like?" her icy blue eyes watching his own curiously. Her tail curling around near by next to the table they where next to. "I've never really left home.. As it can be quite dangerous for me.. since I don't do well in heat..."

Hyruu sensed the curiosity in Sapphire's eyes as the dragoness wondered what the rest of the world was like. She did indeed already mention that she wasn't doing great with warm weathers, but if she was talking about it like that it had to be a serious problem for her...
"Yes, I wasn't born among the Vuari. I traveled through the world for many years before I arrived here. My adoptive father was a Stormcaller ambassador, so I got to visit a lot of places with him. And, well, it's really varied! Every place is unique. There are lands covered by sand, in which the climate is really hot. To be honest with my fur I suffered a bit in that place... There are also lands covered by swamps, oceans, forests... Really it would take a long time to even try and describe everything. But you know, I'm sure you could go there as well! Well, with some assistance for the air. By winter you shouldn't be bothered by the heat!" he replied with enthusiasm.

Smiling as she replied "That sounds great.. Though.. I kinda have to stay here most of the time, after all the tribe needs me to help with the healing." sighing as she continued frowning slightly "Yeah... I wouldn't be great in heat as it causes me pain.. thats why I have a cold atmosphere around me.."

Hyruu nodded at Sapphire, listening to her answer. Was that a hint of sadness in her words? With the discussion they were having, and the way she replied... It really sounded like she wanted to see the world.
"I understand. But, you know... Everyone deserves holidays from time to time. You could always take a week off and go on a trip... What do you say? I know some nice places near the base of the mountain. It's not much, but it'd make a nice holiday wouldn't it?" he asked, tilting his head.

Nodding towards him as she returned her gaze into his own, "I...I would love to but.. I get scared.. of travelling due to my condition with heat.." blushing as she lowered her snout. "Plus.. I'm not sure if I could handle the atmosphere down there" sighing as she frowned feeling uncomfortable, raising her look once again only to turn her gaze anyway feeling slightly ashamed of herself. Of course she wanted to explore more but her body restricted that.

Hyruu lost his smile as he saw Sapphire's reaction to his suggestion. There was no doubt about it, she was sincere when she was saying she would love to explore outside. But it seemed she was truly anxious about it. Trying to get her attention, he moved his tail onto hers as it was laying around the table, and gave her a warm smile.
"You don't have to worry. You just have to chose a period of the year that isn't too warm. Just look right now. The air down there was colder than in this cave. Besides you don't seem to mind too much the fire I had to lit to cook the meat. As for the air, the secret is to just go slow. If you take the time to pause a bit during the descent you won't even feel it." he told her, trying to reassure the dragoness.

Sighing as he mentioned the fire, "Well... I didn't want to say.. it does make me feel slightly uncomfortable, but my ice aura cools me down" continuing as she smiled slightly "I can't go anytime soon though.. plus there's plenty to see from up here" turning her gaze as she felt his tail lowering her snout as she tried to hide her blushing, yet moving her tail slightly telling him she was allowing it.

Hyruu blinked when the dragoness mentioned that actually the temperature in the room was making her uncomfortable. Oh shot he had forgotten to put the fire off! The grey dragon stood up, heading toward the fire in order to put it off.
"Oh sorry! I totally forgot to put it out!" he apologized.
Little did he know he interrupted something. The grey dragon stopped the fire and went back near the table.
"There. I'm sorry... And I understand work takes a lot if your time. But believe me, there's way more to see down there than what you could even imagine from up here." he smiled at her.

Smiling slightly as he put the fire out, "Thanks... I didn't want to be rude.." she couldn't help but give a slightly saddened look as he removed his tail. Nodding as she continued "Someday.. So how come you lived with us? If you've lived down there"

Hyruu slightly tilted his head at Sapphire's question. It was legitimate, of course. After all he was just telling her how beautiful it was down there, yet he was up there too.
"Well... I'm not sure I can really explain. You could call it a calling or something. I love traveling, and I love my adoptive father. We spent many years together, and explored most of the world. But... How should I put it... I started to want to settle down. You know, growing up, and instincts trying to tell me to get a home, a mate, a family... And when my adoptive father and I went on a mission in Vuari, I... Just felt like this was the place. I just feel like I belong here. I miss traveling, and I miss my adoptive father... But in the end, I don't have any regrets. Maybe I'll travel again some day, maybe not." he tried to explain the best he could.

Nodding as his reply she quickly followed up "That makes sense.. like a natural calling wanting to settle down and... erm a mate" blushing slightly as she continued changing the subject "Well.. I've enjoyed the meal thank you, So is there anything else you want to do or?" tilting her head towards him, looking curiously with a slight smile.

Hyruu couldn't help but slightly chuckle as he spotted her getting slightly embarrassed. Sapphire really seemed to be the kind of dragoness that wasn't going out often...
"Well I didn't really plan more than the meal. There are some raspberries left if you want though. Some are a bit crushed from the travel, but... they are great." he smiled at her as he pointed toward the plate with the fruits. Himself took one, shoving it in his maw. He sure loved raspberries.
