The dragoness arched a brow. "I hate liars more than criers." She looked at Wisp again, saying "You must be new here... or new to what has been going on... payment is required to be here now... whether you are staying or passing through. So says the king." She then tilted her head, looking down at them. "Or must I remove them right now? I'm sure-" She moved back as Rhogar put himself between them, the male growling "Enough, witch. Your king is paid with prey and gemstones, not hatchlings." The dragoness narrowed her eyes and answered "Because none of you had hatchlings to give. Now, you do."

Storm cried.” Sucks.” He whispered.” What use is hatchlings? The eggs will take long to hatch, and if abused, they will be bad for, working.” He said, small sparks coming out of his paws.” I will pay with prey, and find gemstones.” He said with a nod.

Rhogar hushed Storm as the dragoness tsked. "You know nothing of how we do things. Must I use force to convey my point; those younglings belong to the king now. I can either take them now, or after they slip from the mother." She reached a paw of long fingers, grabbing Storm by the jaw and pulling him close. "Continue to defy the word of the king, and you pay with your life." Rhogar then snapped "Enough! Let him be, or you will leave wounded." The lean warrior stared at Storm for a moment longer before shoving him back, letting go of his jaw as she did.

Here! Sorry for being gone!)j
One of th other two dragons was waiting outside. Even though he had the face of anger and resentment, he inwardly felt sorry for the dragons they were harassing. Despite working for the King dragon, he couldn’t help but feel sorry for those subjected to his harsh words.
Wisp was whimpering and curled up the whole time, hissing and trying not to scratch at the bigger dragon. Lightning formed in her mouth and she was about to use her Golden Fog technique so she could slink away but the big female left before she could. She whimpered as her mate was thrown roughly to the ground. “Storm!” She gasped.

AshLightning🐟🐻ⒻⒾⓈⒽⓎᗷᗴᗩᖇ🐟🐻 The female tilted her head, telling Wisp "Those younglings belong to King Hrothgen now. Pray you have the smarts to give them up. You can't have more if you are dead." She stepped back as Rhogar approached her again to say "She hasn't been here for months. You can't hold her to this like the rest of us." She shook her head, saying "It... is not up to me." Turning away, she spread her wings, telling him "As soon as those young are born, I will be back. I'll know." And with that, she took off, telling the other two to follow her.
Rhogar sighed, looking at Wisp and Storm. "I'm sorry about this, but... you can have more children. You do not want to cross that witch. She carries out orders without hesitation."

“Should we just leave?” He asked.” Can we even leave?” He added, with a strong feel of protection for his young naturally.” I cannot let my young leave.” He said with a more reasonable look.” You wouldn’t let your new born daughter be taken away? Would you?” He Asked rhogar.

AshLightning🐟🐻ⒻⒾⓈⒽⓎᗷᗴᗩᖇ🐟🐻 Rhogar glared down at Storm, using a paw to shove him. "No, but I'd rather have them taken than have half the dragons here slaughtered or taken for torture, including my daughter." His wings flared a bit before folding. "Don't ever question my loyalty to my family again, welp." Looking at Wisp, he shook his head. "You mustn't. Hrothgen is a brute, and powerful, but some like to think his witch is more dangerous because she plays with her prey. He is too busy to come here himself, but she never is. She will make the time."
Flying back toward home, her green expression was emotionless. Elvira was not annoyed with what happened though. "When will everyone understand that they have no power?" She huffed, her wings flapping. "She hasn't even met those little pests yet, and she wants to die over them." She laughed aloud before looking back at her guards, her look being cue to laugh along with her.

One of the guards laughed with her.” Those no-brainers can’t get it out of their stupid little heads that they need to follow the rules.” Said with a guard.
Storm hissed.” Fine, let my kin be tortured just so you and nova can live!” He snarled.” What use am I?” He asked his eyes flaring, whatever rhogar said, he’d protect his young with his life. Sparks glaring wildly off his body and hitting the ground.

“Enough!” Wisp shouted, looking at the group of family. “I am keeping my children, father. We can stand against them! Remember, we Golden Gilded dragons can copy the abilities of other dragons for a short time. And Sharaka and Ametish have lots of heads, most of which with different abilities. Not to mention Storm’s incredible abilities.” She said, bragging about her mate’s abilities. “We may not be as big as you, dad, but we can still do incredible things.”.

Rhogar looked down at Wisp. "Daughter, star of my life, you must learn to choose your battles." He sat down, looking between her and Storm. "I suppose I cannot stop you from doing what you want, but let me tell you this. You are messing with more than you can handle now, and you will suffer for it." He raised a paw, using a toe to lift her chin up. "I just hope you're ready for it when it comes. You were born in a more civil time. Those... demons were not. I was not." He moved his paw away. "I will be with you the entire way, but you must be ready to deal with what your defiance will cause."
Elvira scoffed. "No matter. It will bring me joy to serve them to our glorious king. He will eat the flesh of those weaklings and think nothing of it." Her expression was emotionless though as she looked ahead again. "But who knows. Maybe they'll actually be smart and hand them over."

Rhogar sighed. "Do not concern yourself with such things. I'll see to it. You just rest, and I'll have some prey brought to you." He turned away, wings twitching as he added "And just... don't leave here alone. You and Storm, not after nightfall. Elvira has spies everywhere."
Elvira glanced back at the second guard, her green eyes watching before turning away. "I know you dislike what is going on, but we mustn't disobey. King Hrothgen was merciful enough to let us keep our worthless lives." She had a slight frown on her face though. "All who defy his will fall in blood and ashes."

The one guard nodded.” I wish those things would just listen, not be complacent as they are right now.” The guard said with a nod.” Those worthless hatchlings will be delicious for the king.” She said with a nod.
Storm nodded.” With my life, I will protect you and the dragonlings.” He said to wisp.” Now we must hunt before they come back.” He said.

Elvira remained quiet the rest of the way back. When they finally got to their destination, she looked around. It was once a thriving capitol of a human kingdom, high in some mountains, but now the crumbled cast and ruined buildings sported nests, forges and barracks made by dragons. No humans left. There was also a massive pen that contained baby dragons, and she ignored the cries and sniffles as she glided toward where their almighty king dwelled. The castle had long been destroyed, Hrothgen having burned the royalty alive thousands upon thousands of years ago. Now there was a huge hole in the front, most of the structure being damaged, but it was held up with cooled gold and what looked to be obsidian. She landed neatly, folding her wings as she walked with her guards to meet their ruler. "I do hope he is feeling good today," she huffed "I can't keep recruiting guards just because he's having a bad day."

The other guard followed behind them, glancing at the babies and feeling a pang of sadness ripple through him. This was insane! But he soon swallowed the feelings and replaced them with cold indifference and strode into the castle.
Wisp trilled happily as her mother agreed to stay and she looked to her mate. “Be safe out there, mate.” She said to him, licking him a couple times.
The male snorted, looking down at them all as he asked "What are you doing here? Empty-pawed?" Elvira kept her eyes on the ground as she answered "Not completely, your grace. There will be more young soldiers for you in a few weeks, though the blood of traitors likely sooner." The large dragon hummed, looking thoughtful. "But you did not bring anything back." Elvira went quiet before slowly shaking her head. "I promise the later reward will be good. They're Golden Gilded dragons." The king was quiet before huffing. "Nothing impressive, but better than half of the hatchlings we have. Leave me, and you better have them when they are born." Elvira nodded before turning to leave, gesturing for the guards to follow her out.

Elvira glided down to the place below, everyone parting way for her and her guards. They were passing by the pen again, and she listened to babies crying for their mothers or just wailing out. It would be logical for them to just fly away, but they were all chained down by special metal, but her eyes narrowed when she noticed one with a broken wing, cuts along the wounded wing, sniffling and whining. The poor thing screamed and cried as she picked him up, fearful as she pulled him to her with her paw. However, everyone watched as she waved a paw over his damaged wing, which immediately began repairing itself. She raised a brow when someone growled "Witch." She didn't see who said it though, so she simply set the little youngling back in the pen.

The guard hissed.” Watch it.” He snarled.” Or She will feed you to the king.” He added with a snarl.” It would be an honour, though a little brat like you doesn’t deserve it.” He hissed and stepped back for Elvira to move.

"That is understandable and don't mind Thorn he is one of the few dragons that survived the attack without any injury well physical injury that is. Thorn was just a hatchling when the attack happened but he saw things that scarred him forever. Now he suspicious of every new person who comes to the valley not that many of us can ride him either." Amanda explained with a sigh as they entered the village where people were out and about doing their chores.
