Bond of Power (Private with Athena)

Post by Storm on Fri Aug 11, 2017 12:32 pm

First topic message reminder :

Storm felt the beat of his heart in his chest as he walked. The desert sand felt unpleasant underneath his talons. It suck in between his talons and bugged him. Why did he even join the Ki'Sha in the first place? He had that thought a lot. It was in the literal worst place in all of Nuira. The desert. It was TOO HOT and made everything feel as dry as a bone. He just had to keep in mind that this MIGHT be temporary. He had to figure that part out once Daydris was gone and he had Sarah again.

Oh, his beautiful daughter. How he missed her. He tried not to think about her, but it was inevitable. It felt like a piece of his heart was missing that nobody could fill. He shoved the thoughts away that maybe she wasn't alive and kept walking. He searched the faces of the dragons in the tribe, trying to swallow his hope in case it was false.

There were rumors that a new dragon had joined the tribe. A pure white dragon. An ice dragon. Why would she join a tribe in the desert,
though?
his mind nagged. She's more vulnerable to heat, since she is an ice dragon. He pushed his legs forward, wondering where she would be.

There. A flash of white. Was it her?

"Athena!" he called out, knowing that he would probably look like an idiot if it wasn't her. By this time his heart beat wildly as he tried to find her.

//Sorry I haven't replied guys. Still getting in the school groove the past couple weeks and haven't had much time or haven't had the creativity or inspiration to RP.

Each wing-beat made Storm feel all the more tired, but he kept himself going. The sea wind pushed and pulled at his wings, making it kind of hard for his tired body to stay hovering in one place for very long.

He watched Ayato as he replied to Athena's question. "Duh," he replied in his obnoxious tone. Storm sighed in frustration and exhaustion and looked out at the horizon. The sun was hanging low in the sky, making the sky a range of beautiful colors. Warm oranges lowest on the horizon, surrounding the giant ball of flame. As you went further up the sky, the colors turned more blue, getting darker as it went along. The clouds were a light pinkish orange. He just watched for a moment, almost hypnotized by the beautiful sight. He had never seen a sunset so beautiful. He almost forgot all of his pain for a minute.

"Come on," came Athena's blunt command, snapping him out of his awe. He flipped around in midair and flew right alongside her, making sure not to get too close as to bump wings. He then took one of their captive's talons from Athena, helping her carry the dragon to shore. He didn't ask her first because he knew she would probably try to be all arrogant and carry her herself.

-------------------

The sun set seemingly the second they landed. Storm carefully lowered the unconscious body to the sands before flopping on them himself, taking deep breaths of exhaustion. He just wanted to fall asleep right there, but he knew he couldn't. He had to make sure that he wasn't going to bleed out, or the dragon might wake up any second now and run away. He reluctantly stood up and reached over his shoulder to touch his wound tentatively. It seemed like it was starting to seal, the blood clotting over the wound slowly. It wasn't bleeding much anymore.

He watched Athena walk off to get firewood. He followed her, grabbing some more sticks for fuel on the fire. He wasn't about to let her do everything herself when she was probably just as tired as him. "Need me to patch any cuts?" She seemed to direct the question toward him.

"I think the bleeding is stopping, but you can look and see if it is bad or needs herbs on it or something." He sat down with his back toward her. The cuts were near his right shoulder and were pretty deep. He wasn't sure if it was going to get infected or not, though. That was the part he worried about.

Everyone has their own lives. It's fine. --

Ayato could hear Storm's sigh of frustration, hissing out from between his clenched teeth, and rolled his eyes as he shook the remaining droplets of water that were clinging insistently to his body and his wet, wet scarf. "Got a problem?" he snapped irritably, turning his head around; exhaustion was weighing him down and his mood was worsening by the second. He didn't bother wiping his tears away - no one would be able to tell, anyway; it looked no different from the water that dripped down his body, falling to rejoin its brothers in the dark waters below. More seawater slid down his face, mingling with his tears, and he blinked rapidly and shook his head.

Damn the stupid stinging in his eyes...

He paid the sunset no attention save for an accusing glance; if they didn't reach the shore in time, they would have to fly in pitch-black darkness, not exactly good conditions to fly in. He didn't want to think about how vast the sea was, how it stretched on and on, neverending, and the prospect its largeness stole his hope away from him. Being near it was taking a strain on his mental strength, knowing that being submerged in the water could be the death of him, and yet his body was tiring, wanting to fall into the water and embrace its (salty) darkness...

--

The shore was actually closer than he'd thought, an island that first started off as clean white sand that soon rolled into grass, from which sprouted large trees and mountains that towered over them all. The timing was just right, the sun disappearing right over its watery horizon as they landed, taking away the blue colour of the sea and turning it dark like the sky above them. Stars from their hiding holes and the moon appeared, a crescent white orb that seemed to glow at them mockingly.

Ayato didn't regret coming with them, but did hate the uncertainty flooding his veins. How long, how far...? he wondered as he flew down too low, his paws skimming over the water. He landed, his world spinning a bit. The sand he was standing on darkened slightly as the water from his paws washed away into it. He flopped onto the sand, not bothering to be graceful, and stopped breathing for a few seconds, the action making him feel... lighter. He would normally not feel so exhausted, but being in the water had taken a huge toll on his energy.

Water had always been his weakness.

He watched through half-open eyes as Athena dumped the rogue onto the sand and walked around, gathering branches and building them into... Oh. He huffed some fire out and the branches ignited, orange flaring up into the beautiful, flickering dance of flames. Ayato got up, brushing sand off his scales, and responded to Athena, "No need. Attend to him." He jerked his head in the direction of Storm before wandering off to the water and rinsing his cuts. The salt stung like hell, but whatever, it was preferable to having dried red crusted over his body. His neck stung with the scratch marks over it, a scar marring his face, but the one in his wings and paws hurt. Never mind, he'd just endure through it.

His world spun into darkness and he fell asleep sitting upright, his wings curled close to him.

The tension between Storm and Ayato was steadily growing, coming off in waves as their personalities clashed like two titans. For a moment, Athena was reminded of ying and yang as she observed their interactions. It worried her, nagged at her subconscious. The last thing they needed, the last thing she needed, was two dragons of a three-member team butting heads.

The rogue barely stirred, only giving a soft moan every once in a while as her head tilted on the sand. Athena watched her carefully, scrutinizing for a change in breath, a flicker of eyelids, anything that would suggest she was regaining consciousness. After a moment, her paranoia got the better of her and she roughly dragged her closer, setting her next to the fire.

Deep marks lacerated the female's sides, blood steadily spilling from the wounds. Athena's talons had done some amount of work, tearing open the flesh like swords. The dragoness' expression was twisted into a mild grimace. Even in sleep, the pain plagued her. Good. Still, they needed to keep her alive, and for a moment she felt rather heartless just leaving her there..

Athena's eyes hardened. You're one of them, she spat at her inwardly. You can die for all I care. Returning her attention to her two allies, she swept her tail to her side, spraying a light amount of sand as Storm replied. "I think the bleeding is stopping, but you can look and see if it is bad or needs herbs on it or something," was his response as the smaller male twisted around, exposing his back, and his injuries, to her.

Athena gave a low hiss of sympathy as her eyes trained on the deep tears that marked Storm's shoulder. She knew he was putting on a brave face, but it looked very painful. "Owch," she said quietly, almost hypnotized by the way the deep crimson splashed against the bright amethyst scales.

"Put some salt water on it," she commanded swiftly. "And wash it out. I'll patch it for you." Her own injuries throbbed in time with her heartbeat, but she refused to complain. She'd clean them when she was ready and the others were healed.

Ayato had spoken curtly, denying her offer, and had walked off to the water. Athena observed as he cleansed his wounds, feeling a tad sorry for him. A part of her wanted to patch his wounds, considering they all needed to be healed and battle ready for tomorrow, but she knew he'd refuse and then get annoyed if she persisted.

Sighing, Athena observed as he abruptly fell asleep and walked to the sea, a slight limp in her step. She worked quickly, rapidly washing out her wounds and biting her tongue as they stung like a thousand bees. Within a minute or two, she was clean and free of excess blood. She watched as the red substance disappeared into the ocean, dissipating rapidly into the endless blue, before she moved back to the trees, snapping off leaves and fixing herself a crude but workable cast of bending sticks and large leaves. She hissed as it pressed against her sides, but it would stop any further bleeding.

Muttering about 'stupid mercenaries,' Athena raised her eyes to Storm. "You don't like him," she stated, awaiting the signal for her to patch his wounds.

Storm watched with concern and pity as the dragon they brought with them groaned in her sleep, blood starting to pool around her. He barely heard Athena as she said to clean out his wounds. He hoped that she wouldn't get mad at him for doing this, but he had to say it anyway. "Athy," he said quietly, noting that Ayato was going to sleep, "we need to help her. She's going to bleed out if we don't do anything." His eyes were still fixed on the wounded female. "And I understand if you don't want to help me, but I am going to try to help her. I really don't want to argue right now." He was exhausted and his back hurt like crazy, but he wasn't going to let that stop him from helping her, even if she was their enemy.

He got up slowly and trudged over the sand to the fire where the female was lying, who was still groaning occasionally in pain. Storm wished that sometimes he wasn't so sympathetic towards others, but it was who he was. He cared about other dragons. He felt like he was alone in the world sometimes, though... Especially without Sarah...

The female was about his size and looked to be about his age. He carefully put his front legs under her's and dragged her across the sand to the water. He brought her into it just enough so that her whole body was under the water, except for her head, which he held up above the water in one of his front talons as he sat down next to her. Fortunately, the waves were calm that night, making it easier for him to clean her without being smacked by waves.

Looking at her wounds on her sides, he winced. Blood was still oozing out of them, staining some of the water red. He wiped the excess dirt away to clean the wounds off, not sure what else he could do to help. He looked down at the females face. She was actually quite beautiful. She was light grey and had a slender, elegant face. Don't worry, Storm thought, I'm doing everything I can to help you.

He wondered how the female got dragged into all of this. For all he knew, she was forced into trying to kill them by Daydris... That was Storm, though, always trying to think the best of others. It honestly bugged him sometimes. But he couldn't help it.

He was snapped out of his thoughts when Athena talked to him. "You don't like him," she stated, referring to Ayato.

Storm hesitated, trying to find the right words. He lowered his voice so that only the two of them could hear. He looked over at Athena. "Well... He sure knows how to push my buttons. Plus I find him extremely obnoxious... But maybe he'll get better as he gets used to us." He would have to tolerate him, otherwise this mission could be a lot worse if he kept letting Ayato get on his nerves.

For now, he ignored the pain in his back and just concentrated on making sure that the female's wounds were clean and washed out.

Re: Bond of Power (Private with Athena)

Post by Athena on Wed Oct 04, 2017 4:54 am

(Artemise gave me permission to skip her turn, as Ayato is sleeping.)

The fire glowed pleasantly in the late evening, illuminating the surrounding sand with it's orange light. Athena was glad they had a fire breather on their side. For a moment, her eyes wandered to Ayato. What could he do, magic wise? She knew he could breathe fire, but apart from that.. well, he'd given no indication he even used magic. Perhaps he was like her, preferring to use claws and teeth to get a point across rather then tricky spells. She could respect that.

Storm saying her name snapped Athena out of her brief daydream. She looked at him, pupils narrowing into cat-like slits at his words. She opened her mouth to protest, but then she closed it. He was right, and besides, she could hold valuable information. She followed her gaze to the dragoness.

In the firelight, her deep blue scales gleamed like polished diamond, stained scarlet by blood. Athena's talons had buried deep into her sides, leaving long, unsightly marks that peeled her scales apart like the sides of a banana. As if on cue, she gave a soft groan of agony, eyelids fluttering for a moment. Then, she stilled.


Athena observed, saying nothing as Storm tended to the female. Deciding that his back was probably killing him anyway, she lifted her rear end to help him carry her to the sand. Afterwards, she stood back, letting him do the gentle work of assisting her, although she shot him a disapproving look every once and a while.

"I won't be nice when she wakes up," she warned. "We need to find out exactly how many dragons that ba-" she stopped herself, finding her teeth grinding themselves against each other. "Daydris, has on his side. And if they have any weaknesses. I won't touch her unless I have to, though," she added the last part to soothe his worries. She knew Storm would be totally against actually harming her, and it both infuriated and made her adore him all the more. The young dragon had a kindness in him that emerged so easily, whereas she kept her heart locked away.

At his description of Ayato, Athena would allow a small smile to tug at the corners of her lips, her eyes darting to Ayato once again in a brief but meangingful glance. She hoped he couldn't see her expression in the quickly fading light. "He's nice once you get to know him a tiny bit. Although I do agree, he's rather infuriating." Athena turned her head and spat blood into the ocean, before bending her head to wash her teeth in the surf. The metallic taste stained her breath and soured her currently content but tense mood.

"I'll go grab some leaves to patch up your back. Don't move," she commanded, swiftly rising and striding towards the treeline, tossing some nearby sticks into the fire as she went.


The female stirred slightly, a sigh escaping her as she repeatedly flinched. Her jaws started to move, but then her body sagged once more, and she was still.

Thankfully, Athena did not protest to Storm saying that he would tend to the female without giving her a say in the matter, though he saw that she didn't like it. She helped carry the captive to the water, which he was grateful for.

Storm couldn't help but start to feel relaxed. Besides the pain in his back and their many problems at hand, the night was rather beautiful, which chipped away at his previously bad mood. The waters had calmed, the waves lapping up gently onto the shore, giving the world a soothing melody. The stars were plentiful; tiny sparkles of light in an otherwise pitch black sky. The water was cool and further seemed to add to the sereneness of where they were all the more as he sat in the water with their female captive in his talons.

They sat in silence for a few minutes, the sound of nature a warm blanket all around them. The slashes that Athena made in the female's side were ugly and made him wince in sympathy. He really hoped that she didn't bleed out.

"I won't be nice when she wakes up," Athena said in a hard tone, and Storm immediately went defensive. She said that they needed to find out if Daydris had any weaknesses. Though she assured him that she wouldn't touch him unless she had to, though, which gave him a little comfort. Only a little.

"Athy," he started, thinking up an alternate way to go about this besides fear and pain. "Let me talk to her first. We don't need to resort to being mean to her right away. Just please, let me try first." He looked up into Athena's eyes, desperately hoping she'd say it was fine. "Besides," he added, "I doubt that she'd want to talk to the dragon who ripped out her sides."

Storm kept looking at Athena as he talked about Ayato. She looked away towards the other male. It looked like a meaningful glance, showing that she did like him. He just wasn't sure if it was platonic or not. He decided not to banter her about it now. He'd have plenty of time to do that in the future.

He wanted to like Ayato, but the male seemed to make it very hard sometimes. Though he hoped that once he got past that hard shell, he would be kinder.

Another couple moments of silence enveloped their camp once again. Storm took a deep breath, not taking the peaceful serene environment for granted. He was once again overjoyed to be out of the awful desert. He loathed it with every scale on his body after being in it for so long. If he had a say in the matter, he would never go there again. Unless to visit Athena.

"I'll go grab some leaves to patch up your back," Athena informed him before quickly getting up.

"Get some for her, too. I would like to try to heal her so that she doesn't bleed out" he explained, referring to the limp female in his talons. He once again hoped that his IceWing friend wouldn't argue with him and would go along with it.

Once Athena left, he took a deep breath and closed his eyes, the salty sea air smelling great to his nose. Once again, calmness came over him. He yawned a massive yawn, realizing just how sleepy he was. Once he patched up the female, he wanted to immediately curl up and fall into his dreams. But for now, he was just happy to enjoy the beautiful nature, ignoring the pain in his back.

He hummed a cheerful tune he had learned back when he was a dragonet in the NightWing tribe a lifetime ago as he looked up at the twinkling stars.

Sorry for making you all wait. Exams stole my muse. --

Ayato didn't know how he fell asleep like that, but he did, so there was that. As he awoke from his brief nap, nearly having pitched forward face-first into the rippling water (the abrupt sensation of tilting forward had jerked him back to reality), he recalled the events of that particular day with crystal clarity, flooding back into his headThat fight with the rogue -

They'd been outnumbered but still had survived, Ayato was glad for that, but suddenly remembered with a dull throb of annoyance that Storm had insisted on sparing the rogue's lives - a detail he really could do without. He huffed, a quiet whoosh of air exiting his maw.

Speaking of whom... Flicking the water off his curved claws, he stood and turned, his paws making a dark damp patch in the sand. He saw Athena's feathered back disappear into the darkness cast by the shadows of a cluster of trees, presumably to hunt for herbs to treat the wounds of whoever, and Storm was there, by the fire.

The female was what caught his eye, lying limp in Storm's arms; she was pretty, quite eye-catching, with bright turquoise and silvery-grey dancing on her scales - sand crusted all over it, he noted. She resembled the sea, and her expression certainly resembled it, deceptively calm, though he did remember the fight all too well and knew how relentless she was with her attacks.

Wait, what. Lying in Storm's arms? What, were they lovers now?

He snorted quietly to himself.

He didn't like the ocean for several reasons. Why couldn't it just look fierce and be done with it, instead of looking so nice and pretty and calm? This female was exactly the same, he realised suddenly, and he felt no sympathy towards the gashes that dug into her scales. She, however, might hold valuable information, though Ayato would like to know how Athena would pull the information out.

He ran an eye over Storm to check if he was alright, before turning back, dismissing him entirely. Ayato sat down again, making sure to stay far from the ocean's hungry hands, and stared out into the distance. It suddenly occurred to him that he was quite skilled at finding something in everyone to hate, and he rolled his eyes at this realisation. Though, the female in Storm's arms.

He wouldn't forget that anytime soon.

// Hey, Ayato, it seems like you got a little confused? You wrote that the female was lying by the fire, but she is actually lying in Storm's arms(if that's what you call his front legs lol) to clean her wounds and keep them dry. I was almost certain that Ayato would freak out at Storm for it. XD

Content to sit in silence and hum to himself, Storm continued to sit on the beach and kept the female's wounds clean. His head swiveled around quickly, suddenly alert, as he saw a flicker or movement in the corner of his eye. He relaxed when he noticed it was just Ayato. The aggravating Ki'Sha snorted when he saw the female in Storm's arms.

"I'm just trying to keep her from dying," he said in a serious tone, trying not to snap at the other male. "I have no intention of killing her." He stated this bluntly, not caring what Ayato thought of him. He had realized a while back that he just had to be himself and not let other people judge him for it. And being himself meant not letting any emotion show and killing all of your enemies. If he couldn't accept Storm for who he was, well, than that that was his problem.

He sat in in silence for a small while, turning his gaze away from Ayato as he turned away to gaze out to sea. The water Storm and the female were in helped lessen the weight of her, to his relief. He looked down at the female, a serious look on his face. He really hoped that this dragoness wasn't evil and was forced into fighting for Daydris.

He didn't know why, but he had a... Feeling about her. He wasn't sure if he was tired or if he just wanted to show Ayato and Athy that not every dragon in the world was bad. Or maybe he was lonely and wanted someone in his life like him. Maybe it was all three. He sighed deeply, looking away and back towards the sea that glimmered coldly in the moonlight. He'd just have to see.

He resumed his humming, trying again to relax until Athena came back to help heal them.

The pain of her wounds had been reduced to a dull throbbing and light stinging. She was glad to be mostly free of the agony in her scales. While the sensation was familiar, it didn't get any less unpleasant. She had learned, however, to just grind her teeth and get on with it, or she'd never get anywhere.

Athena narrowed her eyes at Storm's words, a low huff escaping her. "You do what you have to," she said, her voice filled with a sharp, angry edge. "But if it doesn't talk, I'll make it." Casting a disgusted look at the female, Athena bristled with indignation when he mentioned what she'd done to her. "Hmph," was her only response as she glanced at the terrible marks lacerating her sides.

As she stood up and left for leaves, Storm requested some for the female too. She turned her head over her shoulder to retort, but then bit it back. They were all tired, and anyways, it would suck if the dragoness died after the trouble they went to in carrying her. Athena made a grunting noise in response and walked off to the trees.


She muttered obscenities under her breath as she snapped off leaves and twigs, breaking some to take out a bit of her frustration. "Let me talk to her, Athena," she imitated her purple friend quietly, putting on a high pitched voice. "Because love and compassion gets everyone everywhere!" the thought of that thing's face made her grimace. It was one of them. The monsters that killed her sister and forced her into a destiny she never wanted. Well look at me now, she thought darkly. Making my own destiny, forging the fate I really want. Which involves killing you all and your kids. Take that, Daydris.

"I swear, that kid's gonna be the death of me. If I don't strangle him first," she muttered as she measured out the thickest leaves for his back. Guilt suddenly poked at her chest for thinking that, and she paused for a moment, staring blankly into oblivion.

Why did I drag you into this? she thought, shaking her head as she snatched more leaves for the girl and exited the trees. Her talons met the sand and a low sigh escaped her. Carrying the leaves on her back, she returned to Storm, casting a glance at Ayato, who was now awake. She only caught the tale end of Storm's sentence, and the thick tension in the air told her they weren't talking about their favourite childhood memories.

"Oh look, the guys are spending boy time together," she drawled, standing behind Storm. "This'll sting. Don't move," was her only warning before she pressed the leaves harshly against the wounds. She knew it would hurt, and gritted her teeth in sympathy, but she knew he'd survive. He'd lived through worse. "Sorry," she said quietly, so Ayato wouldn't hear. Using a thin but tough vine she'd found, she tied the makeshift cast around him and then did the same to his other wounds.

She wrinkled her snout when it was time to help the female. "You do it," she muttered when her hooks brushed her scales. "I'm not touching it," she knew she was being mean, but the thought of touching one of them was like telling her to pick up an eel. She wouldn't do it.

Dumping the leaves on the sand, she sighed and strode away towards the fire, sitting down next to it and staring into the flames. The events that had taken place in the past hour ran through her mind. Such a relaxing day, she thought, sarcasm dripping from her inner thoughts.

I didn't ask you to explain yourself, was the first thought that snapped into his mind at Storm's explanation; Ayato merely rolled his eyes in response, and turned away, gaze once again on the ever-moving water. He reached up to touch his sodden scarf, and pulled it from his neck. His tail curled around his hindlegs to at least offer some warmth from the chill that draped itself over this island, and he leaned forward to squeeze the remaining water from his scarf, droplets catching the moonlight in sparks of white as they fell into the sand.

Storm irritated him so much, every action, every expression, every word from him sparking a wave of annoyance and dislike in Ayato; though, Ayato did feel curious as well. He wondered who exactly, this tiny purple drake was, what he'd done, to be so close to Athena. The ice dragoness didn't seem like the very open kind, so whatever crap Storm had done had certainly been significant to forge such a strong bond between them. It, however, wasn't his business, and he wouldn't pry.

"Why do you care so for a stranger? She tried to kill us, you know, and despite your claims that you want information, you're holding her so gently." The words were quiet, a whisper, unheard over the lapping of the waves, only the first sentence audible, and even then it could be mistaken for the winds, especially with Ayato's next words: "Do whatever you want, I couldn't care less." He sounded exactly like his words said, bored and disinterested, a mask he'd perfected so very long ago.

Though, he'd certainly broken it a bit, hadn't he, by offering his assistance? Even then, his eyes remained dull, flat, and dead, expressing not much emotion, and he never laughed. Not genuinely, at least.

Ayato listened to Athena's sharp remarks whipping out, her refusal to treat the female. Looks like someone held a grudge. He remained ever silent, though, almost like a quiet sentry looking out for them all, having nothing to add to the conversation.

// Sorry I didn't reply!

Storm nodded once to Athena's words. He hoped desperately that their captive would talk and that she wouldn't have to force information out of her. He wanted to prove to them that hurt, violence, and suffering were cruel and that they didn't have to resort to such extreme measures. He was thankful when she didn't snap at him when he requested for leaves to heal the female. Besides, if she didn't, he would get them himself.

All of those dragons died in the ocean in the battle, and he wasn't about to let this one die too.

"I care for a stranger because she is a dragon, just like us. How would you like it if you got your sides clawed up and then taken prisoner by us? You wouldn't like it, I can assure you. I'm just trying to make her pain less," Storm explained to Ayato, wishing he would understand.

He looked down at the female again, hoping she wouldn't die on him. Come on, Athy, where are you? He thought with concern. Almost immediately after he thought this, Athena came stumbling through the trees, the green leaves rustling a bit on her back.

Before he had time to react, she started pressing leaves to his back. He winced with surprise at the pain, but then relaxed his body to make her job easier. After a few minutes, the wound was all cleaned off. "Thanks, Athy," he gave her a small, tired smile. He was glad that she had his back... Literally, in this situation.

As he expected, she wouldn't help their captive and told him to do it. Though he did get a bit angry in his mind when she called the female an "it." Didn't anyone treat other dragons with some respect and realize that they were all equal dragons? Without arguing, he picked up some of the leaves and began to work on the wounds. When he was done, he laid her gently down by the fire.

Without saying another word to the two other dragons, as he was extremely tired at this point, he curled up by the fire, falling into his world of dreams almost instantly.

Athena gave no verbal response to Storm. She just glared at the limp female as he laid her by the fire. Her blue chest, decorated with flecks of silver and turquoise, rose and fell in time with the waves. She was small, about Storm's size, but she had proven that she could kill without a problem. She was dangerous, and Athena couldn't understand why Storm would want to help someone who had just tried to kill them.

Because he has a kind heart, her eyes wandered to her sleeping friend, his amethyst scales gleaming in the firelight. He's foolish, but kind. Guilt prodded at her for her harsh attitude towards him, but she pushed it down, adverting her eyes before she started feeling miserable again. The only sounds she could hear were the sounds of the waves, the gentle breeze wafting through the air, and the cackling of the fire.

She looked at Ayato. "How's your wounds?" she asked. She didn't want him dying on the first day, and she certainly didn't want Scortia's wrath upon her and Storm for getting one of her precious Aliugaans slaughtered in battle. She felt a tad awkward, making small talk in the silence of the late evening.

The air was getting far colder, and her blackened feathers started to turn blue once more, growing soft and colorful once more. Sighing with relief, Athena arched her neck, enjoying both the heat from the flames and the cool from the wind. Finally, some weather she could be comfortable in. Her tail swished, spraying sand off into the trees. The half-moons were still stained with thick, dried blood.

pretty short, sorry. --

Ayato had no idea how Storm had heard him. Maybe he'd spoken louder than he'd thought; maybe the ocean's quiet whispering had been quieter than expected. Maybe Storm somehow had great hearing. However, he had no energy -- none -- to spare for these thoughts, so he cast them aside and stared out blankly. It wasn't that he missed home, yet he felt strangely tired. The ocean was beautiful, and he felt a strong pull to it. He wanted to be near it -- yet it would affect his health, chip away at his strength. But if he turned away from it, he would have to go near Storm and Athena, and he was honestly not in the mood for it.

He didn't turn to check. Such an action... It made him feel... weak... as if he cared greatly. It felt weird. Strange. Foreign. And her voice came out of nowhere.

"I'm alright," he said. It was the truth. His wounds stung like all normal injuries, but he was used to the little flares of pain, having gone through worse - who hadn't? Which 'fighter' didn't know the sting and bite of pain? It was his mind that had the problem. Exhaustion weighed down on him, a heavy weight. Not a physical problem. "I'm not going to die anytime soon," he remarked, then turned his head to eye Athena. "How's our friend?" His tail pointed to the sleeping rogue. "Must be really good to be so well taken of."

(Sorrryyyyyyy! *begs for mercy*)

The fire provided a pleasant warmth that soaked through her scales and banished the icy chills from her bones. Athena loved the cold, she was born for it, but in her mind, there were two types of cold. No, three. One; the lovely temperatures she was used to and had been raised in. Two; the chills from awful things like freezing water. Three; the coldness that came with goosebumps at the sight of harrowing things. She'd felt all three.

"I'm alright," Ayato's voice dragged her from her contemplating. "I'm not going to die anytime soon," he added, turning his head slightly. "Okay, well..." she hesitated. She didn't want to come off as overly anxious for his wellbeing. "If it bothers you too much, uh... let me know." She abandoned the topic, talons twitching as awkwardness began to set in.

At Ayato's question, her cold blue eyes wandered to the young female laying on the sand. Her breath was steady, and the blood had stopped soaking through any bandages Storm had applied to her. Though Athena knew she wasn't alright. Her eyelids twitched every so often, her forehead crinkling slightly as if she were pained, her tailtip and talons shifting as if she were defending herself. Nightmares. She gazed at her face for a moment. A young, pretty face, with smooth, pristine blue scales with flecks of silver. The only thing that marred the perfection was the tiny scar on the underside of her chin, likely from a passing claw. What do you dream of? she wanted to ask.

Her own talons clenched when she realised what she was doing; worrying for one of them. She's a monster, like the rest of them, she thought darkly, her gaze hardening. Remembering the Aliugaan could see her expression, she quickly schooled her features, rearranging her face so no emotion showed. "Hmph, she's lucky I haven't strangled her in her sleep," she stated. She's alright in body. Hopefully she doesn't have amnesia in the morning," she gestured to the back of her own head, where she had struck the blue girl with the side of her Moon-Blades. The wyvern lapsed into silence for a while after that, just staring into the flames.

Nothing wrong with wanting to help.. right? His words from earlier bounced around the inside of her skull. Athena is the only dragon here who I.. don't feel on edge around. She looked at him again, this dark silhouette against the darkness of the glistening ocean. He was risking life and limb when he barely knew her and Storm. Would she have done the same for him? She had no clue. Her tail tapped an unsteady pattern on the sand as she contemplated on what to say next. Her eyes wandered to her brother, who was sleeping soundly. Her eyes softened as she watched him slumber for a few moments.

She knew she owed Ayato. Getting them free passes and coming with them on a dangerous mission. Originally, she'd planned for it to be just her and Storm, but now that she thought about it, leaving the Ki'sha would have been suicide. They would have tracked them down and slaughtered them both before she could explain herself. Technically, Ayato had saved their lives, in a way. Her snout crinkled as a slight grimace crept onto her face. Just another thing to add to the list of things I owe him for, she thought irritably. The scarf in the sandstorm, helping her get into the tribe, and now this. Sighing, the wyvern closed her eyes for a moment, swallowed her pride, and spoke. "..Thank you." The words tasted foreign on her tongue, as if she were trying to talk with acid in her mouth. Shifting her gaze to the dark blue male, Athena sighed quietly. "For the.. free passes, and everything."
