“Ah, little human of flowers, how have you grown since I last saw you.”
“It has been a while, Ift. You don’t normally come just for a visit.”
“And that is not the reason that I have arrived here today.”
Just as she thought.
“One of the younger mated dragons had laid an egg a couple seasons back that was much smaller than it should be. The little dragon had survived but now, she is starting to get ill. We fear that she will not make it much longer with how small she is.”
Dragons respect little dragons surviving despite them not having a proper chance. They find them honorable.
“Well, I can go get Bilmont to see what he says-”
“NO!” she roared and then took a small pause to calm herself, “He will not be able to help this particular case.”
Ift stared at Rose with the steel cold eyes. It was her method of intimidation to get what she wanted from other dragons, but it had little effect on rose. It did however, show how serious she was about only Rose coming along.
“I at least have to tell him that I am going.”
Ift nodded her head as Rose went to Bilmont.
It was not long before Ift and Rose, who was riding Ift, arrived to the cave where the dragon and her child lived.
A roar sounded from the cave and Ift roared back. “It is me, Lin, I brought the flower human as you asked.
The mother exited the cave. She was small and was very frail looking. However, Rose knew that she was not as weak as she looked. Her slender body was just as strong as many other dragons. Her scales were a light blue color, almost matching the sky on a clear day. Inside her cave, there were many small pools of water. Dragons can manipulate one element using their magic, and it was clear that Lin can manipulate water.
Lin looked at me and her eyes were soft, which is very odd for a dragon. Usually, they are cold and piercing. It was not long before a very small dragon comes wobbling out. She looked like she was just a hatchling, but her horns were already starting to grow, which it usually takes at least 6 months for that to happen. She was about a foot long and looked very exhausted and ill.
“Please help her, I don’t want to lose my first hatchling.”
Although dragons are mostly lone creatures, they do care for each other very much, and their children even more. Losing the first hatchling can cause the dragon to go into a depressed state and eventually, makes them infertile.
