Kolin, upon hearing that the less-than-competent Lukaks was still practicing medicine on helpless patients, *Or a little less than helpless, in the cases of dragons,* was about to go have a little "word" with him, but the suddenness of Ruean's action kept him interested. Indirectly, it led to the latest in a series of shocks.
"Bellephron... chimera... you're rooming with my English teacher?" English, the main language of Edwin, was not Kolin's native tongue, but most Gawainians learned it as a second language. *Know thy enemy.* He thought, remembering. He'd taken the classes by Net, since most of his youth was spent recovering from the surgeries that had replaced his fragile bones with cybernetics. Kolin had taken Bell's classes in the equivalent of high school in his schooling.

"Couple years back she saved my life. I, in turn, tried to help her find more of her kind. Where is she? I'll bring your hide to her if you have been causing her trouble." She thought back and laughed lightly. "And I told her what I'm going to tell you. They are closer related to Humans. Geneticly speaking. The fact they breathe fire and part of them have scales means absolutly nothing." She heard Kolin and turned to him. "Does everyone know the three-headed pain in my rear whose heads haven't killed each other yet?"

Boaz grinned. "Looks like it! My Belly girl is one of the nicest peeps around! Everybody knows an' loves her." It was ironic she lived with an English teacher becuase she probaby had the worst English out of everyone in the entire room. Her accent sounded like she was from some backwater place in the sticks. That's where she actually was from but she prefered not to say that.

That's when Pretty raised her hand and said, "Er...I don't know this 'Bellerophon' person. Is she another dragon?"

Ruean went back to Pretty. "Bell is a chimera. I met her some time ago before I met you. Back when I had originally met Andre. Before all the alcohol and drugs blocked out most of my past." She nuzzled into Pretty's neck.

"Hmm, do you think she would have remembered you, or me?" Kolin had a feeling that Bell would remember him. His term paper on Orwell's 1984 had been used as a platform for his revolutionary philosophies, chief among them being that Edwin's Party, and everything and everyone connected to it, should be immediately consigned to the lowest circle of hell by means of a popular revolution. In other words, to turn Edwin's 1984 into 1989. He hadn't minced words, either.

The appearance of a self-important weasel in doctor's clothing in the doorway interrupted Kolin's reverie. Before Henrik could say a word, Kolin advanced on him. "I've been wondering what became of you. Are my parents aware that you still practice here?" The sudden melting of Dr. Lukaks' confidence into fear confirmed that they did not. *I hate calling in familiar favors, but this is amounts to a civic duty.* Everyone else in the room was surreptitiously watching. Kolin's mom and dad, chief researcher and board member of the giant pharmaceutical company MEZER, respectively, were the hospital's biggest beneficiaries. A colleague who put all of their donations and experimental procedure contracts in danger was due for a dip in popularity, to say the least.

"Wow Birdbrain and I thought I was the only one who could make most nearly piss themselves!" She chuckled while holding Pretty against her. "Why haven't I seen this side of you more often? I like it," she teased.

Boaz's eyes widened when the weasel took on a look of fear. She then got on her knees and bowed to Kolin. Boax showed great respect to anyone that could strike fear into someone's heart just by looking at them. Then she looked up at Kolin with a smile and said, "I thought there was a strong aura about you!" A voice behind her said, "Wow, Bo, taking things a little too far again, I see."

The dragoness turned to see her roomate, the chimera known as Bellerophon. Bell smiled at everyone then noticed Kolin. "Oh, good to see you again, Mr. von Drake and...oh? Ruean? Is that you?"

"Still haven't eaten yourself I see. Find anymore of you out there? It is good to see you old friend." She goes over and places a claw on her old traveling partner's shoulder. "Still traveling with Dragons I see?"

(A little explanation in order for this post to make sense: I haven't written Kolin as having an accent because I've essentially been recording a translation of his native language, Gawainian, which is equivalent to German. English, however, is a second language for him, thus he speaks it with an accent.)

The reason Kolin did not do this sort of thing much was the nature of the fear he inspired in people. It wasn't fear of himself, it was a spillover from his parents. He felt... degraded, using it, as if he was only threatening to tell mommy. Nothing, however, would have gotten him to admit this out loud, so he just shoved Dr. Lukaks back through the hallway. "If you're office is not cleaned out by the end of the day, we're charging you rent."

Shaking his head at the weasel scuttling back away from him, Kolin turned to greet the newcomer. It wasn't often that he had a chance to practice speaking English, so while his grammar and syntax was relatively good, his pronunciation hadn't been smoothed out yet. "Ah, gut day, Ms. Pegasus. I vould say," Kolin took a slight pause here in order to at least get one sound right, "that it is a strange coincidence for you to be here, but today makes it seem normal." He was proud that the notoriously difficult "th" sound had been pronounced correctly, but the terminal "d" and the "w" sound still eluded him. Also, Kolin emphasized gutturals where native speakers of English had none.

(So, does Kolin have German accent or is Gawainian like German? *Imagines Kolin having German accent* XD)

Bell smiled at Kolin. "You're getting better, I see." She then turned to Ruean and the eyes of her snake head lit up and the snake said her sleek, seductive voice, "Ah, Ruean, yes it has been a while and alas, we have had no luck in meeting any of our kind directly but we have heard from a reliable source that there might be some in Maze. It's probably just another hoaz though."

The heads looked saddened by this but quickly cheered up. Nothing kept those three down. It was the lioness that spoke next. "And what's wrong with hanging out with dragons? We rather like it. Snake over here likes it the most. Must be a reptile thing." She giggled as the snake turned her attention back to Kolin saying, "You're practicall a chimera yourself, Mr. von Drake. You are of three different animals after all. Too bad one of them isn't reptilian." The snake winked at him earning her a loud growl from the lioness. Ruean was right, the fact that they haven't tried to eat eachother yet is a mystery.

(Gawain is pretty much a Feilan analogue of Germany. And Kolin is nothing if not one of das Volk*)

Kolin nodded thanks to the compliment. "Dank you. Damnit!" The 'th' could catch you off guard if you weren't careful. Sighing, he said, lapsing back into his native language, "There are few I can practice with. Almost no one escapes from Edwin these days, and those that have some time ago have since naturalized. If it weren't for the great literary classics in that language, no one here would bother to learn it." Indeed, Kolin suspected that more high school students in Gawain knew Shakespeare (the version free of Party censorship, anyhow) that anyone of any age group in Edwin. It was kind of sad, but Free Speech, even by the dead, was not something the totalitarian Party could risk.

"I didn't think chimeras were the result of interbreeding, any more than the Mystic Lions. If either were, though, it would make things easier for us. I mean, failing all else, we could possibly breed chimeras out of a vat by DNA mixing." Kolin cursed inwardly this time. Two verbal faux pas in a day, in front of an English teacher, no less.

Ruean smiled and looked over back at Boaz. "So How did You meet the klutz, Bell?" She lifted up an eye shield (eyebrow but she has no hair there lol) at Kolin. "You know I never noticed your accent until today. You are really good at it Birdbrain." She gave a bit of toothy grin to Kolin.
