"Nope." She smiled to her self and looked at the clear sky. She could see a flock of bird fly through the air. She sighed softly at how peaceful the day was.... That was until a loud roar broke through the peacefulness. The people in the streets scattered to the edge as a winged figure stumbled backward toward the city wall. Behind her the city guards pointed spears at her.

"BACK OFF!!!" She let a small stream of fire hit the ground purposefully missing the guards. Her green scales shining brightly in the sun as her tail swished with agitation. The guards, though scared, kept trying to poke her out of the city. Her golden eyes scanned the area quickly. As if she was looking for ways to get out of the area with out hurting too many people. Seeing the wide birth she had she shot another jet of fire to press the guard back a step. As soon as they did; with perfect elegance she jumped into the air transforming into a monstrous dragon taller than the houses and longer than two blocks. She flapped her wings and got out of the city. Bast looked over at Sibuna...

"Sibuna... I think she was hurt... I smelt blood... did you?"
I've been talking to dead rabbits and feeding bloody walls. I've done horrifying things with salad tongs. It's really eaten into my social life. (Nny)

"Drat!" He snapped his fingers in agitation.
He was about to delve into a long strand of small, gold things, until he heard the deafening sound.

Reflexively, he turned toward it, his enchanted chain uncoiling itself like an angered viper and standing at the ready.
The jackal was astounded by the transformation of the creature. Never had he seen a dragon before, even in all of his travels.

His nose twitched.
"Blood, yes..." he glanced over to a guard who had been ignited, "along with burning fur... you'd think they'd know better than to poke a dragon... or... anything that can light you on fire, for that matter..."

The dust kicked up as the dragon's enormous wings flapped, Sibuna shielded his eyes from the wind-born particles as he watched her escape the city.

If she had been injured, she wouldn't fly too far, especially if her wings were hurt.
Despite the danger of it, Sibuna assumed that he and Bast had the same idea...

She didn't even wait for the dust to finish settling. That would give the guards a chance to see them leave. She had grabbed Sibuna's paw and made her way toward the gate. Exiting as the dust settled. She looked with her lion eyes, looking for some trace of the dragon. Biting her lip she was about to give up, until she saw a small about of sand being kicked up. Her guess what the giant creature transforming back for hiding purposes.

"Sibuna. We should come from up wind so it can smell us and less likely to eat us." She smiled at him as she tried to figure out the wind's direction.


**behind a dune not to far from the city**

"Damn," Ruean looked at her right side. The blood was seeping quite easily through her green scales. Reaching into her bag she pulled out a bottle of alcohol. "This is gonna sting like hell." Pulling the cork out with her claw, she took a couple swigs for herself. "Here goes nothing...AAAARGH!!!!" The alcohol ran over the would like liquid fire. It took what she could to not transform. She pulled out her dagger and measured it against the wound. It would take at least four of five to cover the wound. She clenched her claws. Taking the dagger she started blowing a precise flame onto the metal heating it, yet not hot enough to melt it. Taking a deep breath she allowed herself to press the hot metal to her wound. The roar carried over leagues.

Sibuna stumbled after Bast, finally regaining his balance as they made their way out of the city gates. He hoped that going on a small side-quest would not hinder them too much.

"Ah, good idea...." Getting eaten wasn't on his agenda, today.

They calculated the wind-direction, then began making their way toward the creature.
With each roar and shriek, Sibaun felt more and more apprehensive about nearing the creature.
Nevertheless, he did so.
It was unusual to see such a transformation. At least, such a large scale transformation.

Ruean glared at the direction the two beings were coming from. She was wounded and in pain. She was nursing on the bottle of alcohol. "You either are really stupid or have a desperate wish to meet your maker..." She growled at them.

Bast took a deep breath then went to Ruean. "My name is Bast. We saw what happened to you... We want to help."

Ruean sniffed at the two of them. "You... Jackal.... You smell of death... And rebirth... And a Sphinx.... I thought they killed all you off.... Ah well there are 'lucky' ones every once in a while." She snorted a laugh. She opened another bottle of alcohol. She took a healthy swig of it, emptying half the bottle in the process.

Despite the fact that the creature was injured, Sibuna couldn't help but let out a small chuckle at the mention of him "meeting his maker" What an interesting experience that would be.
He too, took a few steps forward.


"Why yes, yes I do. And you smell of liquor." He smiled slightly.
Then he approached the wounded dragon, peeling a strip of bandage from his hands. Like magic, it unwound and seemed to expand the a larger size. It dangled from his paw as he held it out to her, hoping that perhaps it would aid her in healing.

"Why is it I always run into Magic users?" Ruean eyed the bandage but made no motion toward nor away from it. Finishing the bottle she placed it in her messenger bag.

"Ms. Dragon we just wish to help if we can. I heard you knew what I was. Did you know others like me?"

"Ruean. And yes. I've met your kind when you flourished like my kind did. The prey use to worship us like gods. They became jealous of us and set the prey upon us. Making us the hunted." Ruean eyed Sibuna again. "You are one strange smelling jackal. Like the inside of a tomb long forgotten, yet fresh as new born life."

Again he chuckled, it came out more like a bark, though.
"Good luck finding someone that isn't a magic user these days."
The bandage coiled back around his hand again, like a snake returning to it's owner.

As the dragon spoke, Sibuna listened, his ears twitching to survey whatever else may be around them.

"Wonderful observation," he thought to himself, though his haughty disposition caused him to revert to sarcasm, as usual.
"Would you like me to bathe? Or perhaps spray myself down with some perfume and oils? That can be done, if need be?"

"I find that smells help me figure out who to trust or eat." Ruean looked at the two of them. "So what do you want of me? You felt the need to risk your lives to bandage me up you obviously want something in return."

"Well... Have you heard of ... other 'lucky' ones?"

"You mean others like you?" Bast nodded "No... I have heard of other once flourishing beasts that now like you and I are dwindling if that is what you mean... So let me guess you need a ride to some obscure place to find out more about yourself."

"This....is very true..." he replied, nodding his head once to the side.
At the dragon's next statement, he shifted his gaze over to Bast. This was her turf, not his, at this point.


The exchange between then was interesting. It seemed that they understood each other to some point. To pass the time, he wiggled his toes down into the sand. Grains of it dug their way under his claws and into the bandages on his feet.

A ride?
Oh how wonderful that would be... a ride..to anywhere! Especially if that meant they DIDNT have to go on a boat...

He kept his thoughts to himself, for once, allow Bast to handle their travel arrangements. Ladies were always better at this sort of thing, anyway.

Bast looked over at Sibuna before looking back at Ruean. "If you would give us a ride there it would be great! It would be a great honor!"

"Don't try and butter me up..." Ruean looked over at Sibuna and smirked. "You don't like boats? or just water?" Ruean had a secret. And she would keep it mostly too herself. But would have so much fun with the coffin-smelling-jackal as long as she could.

"We need to find Skin Avians. The live in the Raven territory."

"You're kidding me... Those? I haven't heard of one of those in at least a century."

Oh boy oh boy...First boats, now flying. Sibuna was apprehensive. He liked traveling by ground. Preferably on a wheeled cart. Pulled by adoring minions. With a plate of cinnamon buns.
He shook the fantasy out of his head when the dragon spoke, at first a bit surprised about her comment. He hadn't even realized that he raised his eyebrows, they kind of did it on their own. Hm.
"Mostly just boats..." he said, trying not to give her any strange looks.

Finally he piped up.
"I know of one. A very young one. She lives with a friend of mine, a Minotaur."

"A Minotaur? What are you? A magnet for random creatures?" Ruean looked at both the jackal and the sphinx then rolled her eyes. She reached into her bag and pulled out a new bottle of alcohol. Opening the bottle she began to drink heavily.

"Umm. Miss Dragon? Could you bring us there?" preferably sober. Bast thought to herself.

"I am sober. This alcohol is weak it is more like water to me than drink." Ruean chuckled as she saw Bast raise her eyes and show her fear. "You are scared now. Afraid of me?" Ruean gave a toothy evil grin. "Or of what I could do?"

Sibuna's face felt into his paw as he shook his head. What was this horrible situation that they had gotten into.

"One could say that, I suppose..."
He had run into quite a few interesting creatures... a mysterous vampire bat, a two-headed dog creature, another semi-divine jackalesque fellow, minotaurs, skin avians, holy seal shamans...
Now that he thought of it, there was quite and eclectic mix.

At the mention of being sober, Sibuna got the horrifying vision of the trio careening helplessly to the ground, crashing in a monstrous heap of fur, claws, wings and scales. May the gods above have mercy...

Ruean seemingly out of nowhere burst into hysterics. Bast slowly backed closer to Sibuna, "Do you think this is a bad idea now as well?" She whispered softly to him and brushed her shoulder against his arm.

"I love your apprehension! Reminds me of the good old days when I was feared instead of attacked and hunted." Ruean transformed into her full form making her as large as a ship with her height as tall as a the mast of a ship. She gently picked up Bast by her shirt and placed Bast by her neck. Bast screamed until she was placed down. Ruean reached toward Sibuna.
