Nothing to hide (Private, Cara)

Post by Vortex on Fri Apr 28, 2017 6:46 pm

It was cold. Not too cold, but cold. To be honest, Vortex quite enjoyed the low temperature, the early morning dew on his paws, and the calm song of the morning doves. It was a very tranquil place. He was very close Stormcaller territory, and did not care in the slightest, for they were decently friendly most of the time.... Unlike the Ki'Shan border patrol. So what if he... well, nevermind. He was also enjoying the fact that he had actually been able to sleep last night. He had been troubled with nightmares for the past month, about his past primarily, and it was nice to have a clear mind every now and then. The branches of the trees brushed against his scales as he walked through the forest, weaving through the trees, barely making a sound. Finding a spot he was content with, he sat down on his haunches and looked down at his claws, sighing as he saw there was still blood from his breakfast on them. The masked dragon had to admit he enjoyed the solitude, but was indeed a bit lonely.

Caramina had considered wearing her favourite green scarf, for the weather today was cool, almost crossing the border that separated 'cool' and 'cold'. But she remembered what had happened last time, when she'd noticed that it was a cold day and had thus wandered into rogue territory with a scarf on, which had not ended well. She winced at the memory but continued on, her steady wingbeats unfaltering.

Wrong. It was still cool, in fact it was cold. The chilly wind whispering against her scales earned a filthy curse from the shivering Caramina, who wriggled around in the air in an attempt to gather warmth from her movements. Green sparking at the edge of her vision drew her eye, and she stopped rolling around and twirling in the air, muttering something about 'maybe I'll get shelter from this stupid wind' before starting to dive, angling downwards and arrowing through cold air that stole air from her lungs.

She landed as gracefully as she could, but stumbled and nearly tripped over a twig buried in the green green ground, protruding slightly out of the moss, such that it wasn't visible at first glance, but enough to trip her. She tucked her wings close to her, trying to appear composed as she wandered through the forest, the tall trees managing to block some of the wind, but wisps of wind still got past the trees, touching her the way feathers would, but it wasn't as cold now.

Oooh! Cool mask! was the first thought that surfaced when she spotted a male sitting down, his back against the tree. A smile breaking across her face, she murmured a greetings and watched him closely, wondering how he would react.

Vortex finally had a moment of silence as the birds stopped singing, but it was quickly interrupted by the sound of a twig being snapped, and the undeniable smell of a dragon carried by the soft breeze. Well hello there. he thought without looking to see who, or what, it was. slowly turning his head towards the scent, he saw a white dragoness with a greenish mane, who was, admittedly, quite beautiful. What was most interesting was he did not see the typical expression when others usually saw his mask. Instead, it seemed to be one of fascination.
Making no effort to move from his tree, he let a small smile touch his otherwise featureless maw, and blinked a few times before responding. "Greetings... What brings you out here?" He said softly in greeting, loud enough to hear.

Caramina continued observing Vortex with great interest, her eyes tracking from his unusual (but cool, she thought) mask to the rest of his body, which was layered with midnight-dark scales that held a subtle shine, hinting that it was very well kept. And his eyes! Gorgeous hues of deepest blue, unfortunately holding a guarded look that gave away nothing. A look for a stranger, but she shouldn't be so disappointed - after all, she was a stranger who'd popped up out of nowhere. She shrugged and sat, mimicking his posture, resting her weight on her haunches. "Boredom," came her reply, her eyes lifting up to meet his. "And you?"

Vortex let his eyes meet hers, deep blue orbs meeting dark green. He found himself a bit lost within her eyes, and looked down a little, trying not to show his embarrasment. "Boredom as well." He said, giving only a partial amount of the truth. Glancing again at his paws, he tried rubbing the blood off on the grass, which failed miserably. Sighing, he let his tail snake around and cover his bloodstained paws. Looking up, he let a tiny smile touch his maw as he shifted a little, stood up and strode a small distance away, to a small pond with barely any activity in it. Sitting on his haunches again, he looked down, intending to wash his forepaws but instead just staring at his reflection. "You're a Stormcaller, right? If you don't mind me asking, what is your name?" He asked, gaze not movinging from the surface of the water.

He has gorgeous eyes was the dreamy thought that repeatedly surfaced from the jumble of thoughts in her brain, snaggjng her attention. She couldn't resist a smile as her eyes explored the deep blue depths of his, and she shook her head in despair, as if to say, "Why oh why did fate decide to land me next to a rogue with pretty blue eyes?"

Her half-despairing smile melted into confusion when he stood, and she thought he was going to leave. She stood as well, following him, only to see him stop at the edges of a pond, a jagged circle of shimmering blue, reflecting his face and distorting it with ripples as the wind slid across the water's surface. She looked up, and she said, "Your eyes. They're pretty."

Okay. That was a bit embarrassing - but she had to tell him that. She just had to. She smiled awkwardly, a flush rising onto her cheeks, tinging it rose pink.

Vortex watched his reflection, remembering how much it had changed... Looking up from the surface of the water,he brushed away the memory and gazed directly at Caramina. "Thank you." He said, genuinely flattered. "As are yours." He saw the embarrassment in her expression and responded to it with a calm, comforting smile. It still doesn't answer my question. Part of his mind thought, considering voicing it, but quickly deciding against it. His tail slowly moving down, it slid along the grass and touched the water, causing an eruption of ripples along the surface in every direction. Sighing, he took his tail out of the water and ran it along the grass, attempting to dry it, but accidentally flicking some onto the dragoness. "Sorry..." He said in an almost sad tone.

Caramina watched Vortex, whose eyes were fixed on the reflective surface of the pond. His eyes were distant, perhaps remembering something, but snapped back into focus when she spoke. She wondered if he'd receive the compliment well, or throw it back to her, and her tensed shoulders relaxed when he smiled and told her the same. Her blush remained there, darkening slightly, and she murmured a thank-you; she hadn't expected him to return the compliment.

She allowed the silence between them to stretch, her eyes trailing to his tail as it slid into the water and flicked, not only causing ripples to roll across the smooth surface, but also splashing droplets onto her when he ran his tail across the grass. She shook her head. "It's fine," she said, then asked, "May I know your name? Mine is Caramina."

Vortex shifted his body, so that he was facing Caramina. "Vortex," He replied, "Nice to meet you, Caramina." His gaze traveled from her to the ground. Shifting, a little uncomfortably, he considered leaving, perhaps going back home; but, it had been a long time since he had ever met anyone who had been this nice to him, save for one of the Vuari. Making up his mind, moved nothing but his tail. Thinking it was going to be a relatively clear day, the one thing he did not account for was rain. Oh, but he did when a drop landed directly on his muzzle. Sighing and looking up, a frayed stormcloud sat overhead, as if mocking them. Looking back at the dragoness, he made a small shrugging motion, his shoulders rising and falling as a few more drops landed on him.

Vortex. Rihzome had mentioned his name once or twice during one of their conversations, and the name wasn't unfamiliar. "Lovely meeting you, too~" she said, the smile that'd slid off her face when he apologised (making her annoyed at her sad attempt to have a proper conversation) returning at full force. This smile was genuine, mostly constructed out of curiosity and excitement - she'd wanted to know more about Vortex when Rihzome had dropped his name, but Rihzome had been vague, quickly moving onto another topic - one about what was happening in Xøya. That had snagged her attention, causing her to forget about Vortex. At the first drop of rain, she sighed, feeling the droplet slip down her snout. At the second, she got up, muttering "We'd better go - I don't want to get drenched" to Vortex before realising that they had no idea where to go. "Um... Could we go to your den...? Or mine, if you like?"

Chuckling to himself, Vortex nodded nonchalantly. "My 'den' isn't exactly in the area." He replied, thinking back to his home on another continent. "You don't have to, I'm perfectly fine out here." He looked around, wind shaking the trees and letting the water droplets leak through, splattering against his scales. He responded to her smile with a small one of his own, which looked more miserable than happy. He was being genuine when he said it, as he was content to sit here until the storm died down a little. Still, he couldn't deny that something solid over his head would be nice. If the dragoness was willing it was unlikely he would not follow, since the storm was getting progressively worse.

Caramina huffed. "You're fine with being battered by water... But I'm not," she said as several more water droplets splashed onto her face and body, trickling downwards to the ground. She stood and tried to shake herself dry, then, feeling more rain fall onto her, she glared up at the darkening sky and called up a wind shield to cover herself and Vortex, smiling in triumph as the water hit her shield and rolled right off. "There~" she said, sitting down next to Vortex, beginning to hum under her breath. After a while of silence, where they sat, watching and listening to the rain, she asked finally, "Vortex... Where do you come from? And..." She paused, hesitating, before continuing, "where did you get that mask from?"

Vortex watched in fascination as she conjured some sort of barrier to block the rain, then looked back down at her to listen to her questions. "Well... I come from the Ectan Mountains." He paused, thinking for a moment. "I do not belong to the Vuari, mind you, but they are kind enough to allow me to stay there." He smiled as he thought back to his friends from the actual tribe that dwelled there, particularly Fate. His expression went blank as she asked him about his mask. He had been hoping that question wouldn't be dropped. "Well... I've had it my whole life." He said, partially lying. "I received it from my... from my..." He trailed off and looked down. He didn't want to think about his parents in the slightest, especially after what had happened to them.

"Etcan mountains?" she echoed, slightly surprised. "You've been there? I have, too, I visit it every now and then. I like the climate and the mountains, the view from high up is nice when the wind is not busy trying to push you off." Seeing that Vortex was uncomfortable with the mention of his mask, she decided not to ask further, but her curious eyes wouldn't leave his mask. She jumped a little when a roar of thunder reverberated through the sky, followed by bright lightning arcing through the stormy grey clouds, splitting them to hit the earth. Smoke trailed into a sky as a tree burst into fire, and Caramina shuddered, wondering whether her wind shields would hold out against natural lightning. Better not to think about that now, though... "Hey, do you know Rihzome?" she said suddenly. "He's my brother, and he keeps on mentioning you during our conversations."

Vortex nodded, twitching a little bit at the thunder clap, but his twitch was barely noticeable. Thunderstorms didn't really bother him, after all, they were just rainstorms with an extra chance of death or serious injury. Besides, there wasn't reall much left of him, so a serious injury wouldn't make that much difference. "I agree. The view is fantastic if it isn't cloudy." He responded, shifting a little. "Well, yes, I- He's your brother?" He said, genuinely surprised. "Yes, I do know him, and quite well at that. Odd. He has never mentioned you in our conversations. At least I don't think so."

Caramina nodded. "He is," she said, nodding. "Oh? I'm not surprised, actually...he tends to keep the names of his relatives to himself, unless it's asked. Maybe he's just scared that the dragon he's talking to hides bad motives underneath a smile, and with the knowledge of his dear one's name, will come after me. I don't know. No offence intended," she added quickly. Then she lapsed into silence, growing more and more awkward as seconds of silence passed. She wished she could do something to liven up their conversation...but she had none in mind. Sorry for boring you, she thought, looking up at the hazy grey sky, the dark clouds spewing rain and bolts of light, accompanied by loud rumbles of thunder shuddering across the sky.

"I, uh, have something to show you," she said suddenly, an idea coming to her. While exploring, she had discovered something out of the ordinary, but had no time to actually explore it. Maybe she could do it with Vortex now, even though she didn't really know him. "Uh, if you don't mind flying in this weather, you could follow me to it...?" She spread her drenched wings, shaking it dry, before leaping into flight, wind rushing to form a shield above her, to deflect the rain and keep her dry. If Vortex followed, she would take him on a flight that lasted a few minutes, and she would head upwards, towards an ominous-looking mountain whose tip vanished into the sky. There was a hole in its steep sides, a cave, which she would dive into, the abrupt shift of temperature earning a shudder through her body. Here, it was chilly, almost cold, and icy stalactites hung from the shadowed ceiling.

Around the small room were statues, each depicting different dragons. She would say to Vortex, assuming that he came, "Look at these...aren't they cool?" and walked over to the biggest statues, one of a large western dragon with a crown placed crookedly on his head, and an eastern female twisting in the air next to him, a seductive smirk spread across her beautiful face, but her eyes held a sinister look. She shrugged, wondering what Vortex would say about this, as she poked the female's maw, saying, "Wish I were as beautiful as her," trailing off into silence as the female's maw opened, revealing a scroll in it. "Please don't bite me," she muttered, taking the scroll from its place in her icy maw and uncurling it, the faded yellow papers making crinkling sounds as she did so.

Do not laugh, it said.

"Well now, she said, "all this is rather sudden..." and broke into giggles at the simplicity of the note, her laughter scratching through the air. Her laughter seemed to trigger something, a ferocious roar emanating from her bared maw, and the ground beneath them vanished into nothing. Caramina fell, a string of incoherent curses screaming from her throat, her wings flailing as she spun through the thick shadows, occasionally having a feather torn off by something sharp that she brushed against. She shouted in pain, and shouted again as she fell, a bit ungracefully, on her stomach, earning a protesting "ow, what the heck". She lay there, tempted to stay in that position until her breath returned, but she stood, looking around. "Vortex?" she called.

Vortex thought for a moment, before nodding as well. "That does seem like him. Though you would know him better than I would." He admitted, giving a small chuckle afterwards. He didn't mind the silence at all, for it calmed his sometimes damaged mind. Still, awkward silence was awkward silence, and as he was about to say something she spoke. Being a bit bored already, he decided he didn't have anything better to do, so as she took off, he shifted and leapt into the air, spreading his wings to follow. The rain beating against him wasn't a problem, except for the fact that he had eyes. He followed close behind Caramina, half to not lose her and half to shield his eyes from the rain.

As they approached the mountains, Vortex's interest only grew. He entered at a slower rate than she did, thus not affected by the temperature change. Nodding in response, he observed the main two statues for a minute. "Yeah, they are interesting." He said, nearly jumping as the eastern dragoness opened its maw. Tilting his head, confused at her reaction, he wondered what was on the paper, and why it was funny. Jolting out of his thought process as the statue roared, he yelped as the floor disappeared, dropping them into an icy pit of darkness. As he fell, he tried to keep himself upright, but failed miserably, skewering his wing as he landed with a heavy thud. Surrounded by complete darkness, he immediately stumbled upon standing up and landed on something polygonal, which screeched, followed by a dim light filtering through the cavern. Looking around, it seemed to be exactly what he expected, a large cave made of ice. It didn't take him long to notice the stalagmite in front of him, dripping with his blood, as well as the long cut in his wing. Quickly folding it, he gazed around again, finally noticing Caramina. "I'm here...  Are you alright?"

Caramina wished she had a source of light so that she could see through the thick darkness, but with a sudden whir, dim rays of yellow pierced through the cloak of shadows, allowing her to see, but not too well. Vortex was there, a few feet away from her, and although he looked fine, she could see a tiny trail of blood leaking from his wing, even with it folded - he was probably attempting to go all hero-ey and not mention his wound. Flickers of pain danced across his face, even as he tried to hide it, and she moved forward, cursing her inability to heal him quickly. "Your wing is injured," she announced, "thus I must do something to it. Good, of course," she added as she unwrapped the green scarf around her neck, staring at Vortex till he unfurled his injured wing. Binding it as best as she could with the scarf, which quickly turned red as blood seeped into it, she looked him up and down. He was probably a bit sore from the fall...but no other injuries were present.

"I'm fine. Well, at least, doing better than you did," she replied. "I, ah, am sorry for being stupid enough to laugh, but since we're already in this pile of crap, we might as well try to find a way out instead of moaning over it." With this said, she raised her head, looking around, her gaze landing on a small wooden door. Turning, she went to it, opening it and entering, crouching a bit because it was a bit small. Only when she was in did she hesitate, but ah well, whatever, and she continued, the tunnel eventually giving way to a round chamber.

Vortex, you decide what should be in the chamber :3 --

Vortex exhaled heavily, looking down and to the side. Cursing softly as she noticed his injury, as well as announced that fact, he brought his gaze back up, quickly observing her staring at him, with obvious intent. Reluctantly, he extended his injured wing, allowing her to tend to it. "You don't have to... Nevermind." He tried as she wrapped her now bloodstained scarf around his wing. The binding was a bit restrictive on his wing, disallowing him to open it, but then again, he doubted they would need to do any flying down in this icy cavern. "Thank you." He finally said after a moment of silence, some of the pain subsiding.

Nodding a little as she told him her current state, he smiled without a definite expression. "Keh, I don't blame you." He chuckled softly, shaking his head a little. "I agree, the past is the past, lets focus on getting out of here." Shifting a bit, he followed Caramina to the small wooden door, which seemed... odd in a place like this. Regardless, he ducked his head an followed her on through, not exactly knowing how much further into the cavern they could go. It seemed strange... someone must have set all of this up for a reason, but why? Why would anyone go through the trouble of constructing such an elaborate system? Thoughts like these swam around in his mind for a while before leaving, only to be replaced by new ones. The corridor eventually gave way to a large, circular chamber. Glancing around, Vortex noticed the beautifully done carvings in the walls, made entirely out of ice. The carvings themselves were a little confusing as to what their purpose was, but he shook it off before thinking about it, turning his attention to the center of the room. In the very center of the circular chamber was an pillar made of what seemed like some sort of snow. Glancing to Caramina, he slowly approached the pillar and touched it with a single claw, noting that it still had the consistency of ice. The pillar was divided into sections, almost as if it was built out of thick discs. Each of the discs had little symbols on it, which, unknown to him, matched the symbols under the carvings on the walls. "What do you make of this?" He asked, turning back to her.

Caramina frowned, a little crease appearing between her nonexistent eye-ridges. "I'm not sure, actually," came her reply, as she surveyed the room that they were currently in, shivering a bit at the cold emanating from the icy chamber. Going to a wall, she noted its frosty appearance, and the carvings etched into the wall, of long eastern dragons with their bodies intertwined in a pair, resembling a long coil of rope that ran along the surface of the walls, sometimes linking with other pairs and swirling into a pattern before separating and resuming their course to the top. The walls resembled ice, their blue-white surface shimmery and giving off a deep quality, as if there were layers, and what she saw was just the surface. There were words running up the spines of the dragons, sadly in a foreign language consisted of strokes and swirls and dots.

Eventually she moved back to the pillar set in the very center, and as she looked down at the stone (stone??) floor, she noticed circles etched into it, almost like tree rings, with the pillar's base being the first circle, others fanning out around it. Her gaze travelled up to the discs that cut into the thick trunk of the pillar, which had similar carvings to those on the walls - and symbols, she noticed - but the carvings portrayed far more ferocious and regal dragons, their icy eyes fixed straight ahead, crowns atop their finely built head. Their mouths were open, teeth bared in a silent snarl to stay away, and, running her paws along the cool, almost icy-cold surface, she made a soft hum of surprise as a hollow sound echoed when she knocked (gently) on the pillar. Was there something inside? Shrugging, she continued running her paws over its cool surface, hoping to feel something.

She did, a bump that was cleverly hidden, disguised as an orb, and she knocked against it, only to hear a solid thump. A thump? Quite confused, she lowered her face to stare at the orb, many symbols protruding from its rounded surface. One of the symbols reached out farther than the rest, and, tugging on it, she squeaked in surprise as the orb fell out, almost landing and squishing her feet. She backed away with a grimace, glaring at the orb and picking it up, only to have it fall apart into two pieces, revealing...nothing. Which was honestly just very stupid, but she picked them up and stuffed them into her satchel, before peering into the hole that was left behind when the orb fell out. Saw nothing but darkness, and growled in frustration, straightening and looking up, only to see a set of gates set into the ceiling. The ceiling, of all things! A set of buttons were there, just within reach, and different symbols were on each. Doing this purely on guesswork and hope, she flew up and pushed the buttons according to the symbols that scrolled across the orb's surfaces.

The gates creaked open, into another room above them.
