In the haze of dawn and just waking up, Acorn let her instincts take over. She leaned forward and pressed her lips to the bottom of his chin with a loud purr. "Good. Let's get to work today, get moving." And hopefully he would ride with her on Oka's back once more. Her face heated up as she imagined him saddled up behind her, arms wrapped around...
Oka was too focused to notice the two. "His past? Explain. Is there something I must worry about?"

Draco grunted and his cheeks turned light pink when she kissed him and he smiled, rubbing his hands on her hands and growling softly, almost like a dragon. “We should...” he murmured, but made no move to get up
Asla smiled. “Again, no. When he was little, a violent attack came and destroyed all of his home town. He was left in the rubble, he and his mother. Then, a giant dragon, bigger than any in the world, came down and found her with the infant Draco. The woman was bleeding out, and asked the dragon to take care of the baby. That dragon accepted, though the woman died before she could see him take Draco. Turns out, Draco has already died. But that dragon used some of his own soul to bring Draco back, if not but to care for the child like the woman asked. That’s why Draco’s hair is white and eyes ice blue. And why those big scars are white. That dragon raised Draco and taught him everything, but died around seven years ago as he got weaker and weaker with age and numerous attacks by humans. When the giant dragon died, Draco somehow absorbed the rest of the giant dragon’s soul, and gained power over ice.” She said. “We still don’t know what will happen, but sometimes Draco wakes up from a long sleep with ice on him or dragon scales on his skin.” She said.

Acorn nodded after a moment. She liked the way he thought. Now she shifted so she sat in his lap, laying her back against his chest, and her head to lay against his shoulder, one hand reaching out and taking his.
Oka stayed silent. This was uncommon. But not unheard of, of course. She would simply need to keep an eye on him.

Asla smiled at her dragon companion. “Don’t worry though. He’s very kind and brave.” She said, then her eyes widened some as the two humans got a bit cozy. “I’m surprised that you weren’t shocked. Most of those we tell his story to don’t believe us.”
Draco smiled when she sat in his lap and he continued to growl, watching as the girl laid her hand on his. He smiled as he felt her lean on him and he lightly leaned his head over and kissed her cheek lightly and laid his free hand on her waist. “...What are we doing?” He asked softly, but didn’t move much more.

"It isn't unheard of. I raised Acorn for six months when she became lost at a young age." She said. Ever since then she had been family.
"I'm flirting. Be betrothed." She giggled out. She purred louder as he kissed her cheek, and Acorn reached up and cupped his cheek. "I never did like the boys in my village. All were too stuck up, too old fashioned. I like how brave you are, how confident you are."

Asla nodded. “Ah ...” She said simply. “Geez those two are moving fast...” he said.
Draco smiled as she said the things she did and she held her against his chest and he growled louder. “Ahh....” He said softly, leaning down and his forehead touched to hers. He gazed into her head and sighed happily, feeling her hand on his cheek. His heart thumped louder and when he blinked, his eyes became those of a drsgon’s For a second, ice blue and kind with warmth. He then immediately blinked again and they returned to normal.

"I dont like it. Shes too young." For a mother, she was always too young.
"You growl like a dragon. You wouldn't happen to be one, would you?" She scratched under his chin, eyes closed in relaxation. She wiggled a bit, to feel herself against him. Acorn's mind was finally awaking, and the embarrassment was finally arriving. But the euphoria was still trumping it.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 22:10:21 GMT -5
Asla chuckled. “She’s not too young... plus with you raising her you’ve become like a mother. And all moms want to keep their kids as kids.” She said.
He chuckled and kissed her cheek a couple times. “That’s a long story that I’ll explain some other time. For now.... I just want to keep you close...” he murmured as he rotated and laid back on his back with her on top of him, gazing up at her. “You’re the most amazing woman, Acorn...” he said happily as he rubbed her sides and belly just out of instinct. “I like being so close to you...” He said happily.
Post by Samandriel on Oct 28, 2018 22:20:08 GMT -5
Oka blushed and looked away. "You're right, but... still. Very fast." She murmured discontently.
Her cheeks flared to new warmth, and she could only stare and hold back a squeak. "T-thank you... I wanna be here with you too~" Now, seeing as she was on top of him, she began to press a couple kisses to his face in return. This closeness was almost enough to make her explode.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 22:23:17 GMT -5
Asla chuckled. “Don’t worry. He’ll wake up soon.” She said, watching the two young humans.
Draco smiled and held her close as she kissed him. Being so close to a female, with the two of them just loving each other, everything felt right. As if on cue with Asla’s words, he remembered that they were new acquaintances, and something like this could have trouble spelled out in the future. “A-Acorn...” He said softly. “Let’s get up... we don’t wanna donsomething we regret.”

Oka sighed in relief. "You're very wise for being so young. My own emotions clouded my judgement." Oka chuckled softly and pushed her old bones to lift her up.
With a sad harumph she rolled off him. "Fine. But you owe me cuddles or something." Though as she turned away, her face was bright red. She just made out. With a boy. Who liked it and did it back. Oh my God. All of her friends would be jealous if they knew. But something about it wanted her to keep it secret. As if, if it got out, it might lose some point of value. And she wanted it as pure and beautiful as it was just now.

Asla laughed and got to her paws. “Well you gotta be with a companion like Draco.” She said.
Draco smiled and looked over at her as he got his shirt on. “Talk to me later and we’ll see.” He replied. He came over and helped her to her feet, but in the process he pulled her close and kissed her head. “But I did like this, Acorn. I really did enjoy it.” He said, then slowly pulled away and walked back to Asla.
Post by Samandriel on Oct 28, 2018 22:33:21 GMT -5
She stood there, peach faced, holding the hem of her shirt tightly with a bright grin. Oh, how she wanted tackle him and keep going! But he was right after all. She looked to Oka, who was giving the motherly scowl, but couldn't help the smile either. Her daughter, in a sense, was happy.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 22:35:30 GMT -5
Draco smiled as he walked over to Asla and rubbed her gently and kindly. “Thanks for keeping watch, girl.” He saidbhappily. He then looked at the other two and grinned. “Now, shall we keep going? And this time, no freaking magic guys.” He said as he turned to the wall. He planted his hand on it and thin fissure lines began to spread from where his hand was and spreading across the wall.
Post by Samandriel on Oct 28, 2018 22:39:08 GMT -5
Acorn lifted herself onto Oka's back and nodded. "Asla must be tired though. Does she need to rest?" Anything to stay just a little longer. Though if they got going, he could ride on Oka with her! Wait, what was she doing! Acorn barely knew this person. And on top of that, she was supposed to be manipulating him. Instead she just wanted to be close. She wanted to punch something.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 22:42:54 GMT -5
Draco looked over at her and smiled. “Nah. Asla’s a water dragon. She has a trait much like dolphins and other marine life. She can shut down half herbbrain and sleep while also keeping one side awake and on watch. So she’s fine.” He said. St that moment the fissure lines expanded to the edges of the ice and it shattered, the ice coming down and clinking on the stone. “Now let’s get walking and try to get far away from here.” He said as he immediately struck out. “And dnd something for breakfast!” He added.

Oka and Acorn both sighed. His endless energy was an amazement. But their grumbling belies agreed with him, and so they followed. Acorn eventually laid down on her back, letting Oka carry her without worry. "Draco? Why were some parts of your skin super cold this morning?" She called out. The places where ice had been, of course.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 22:49:05 GMT -5
“You’re asking a guy who can freeze a guy in a block of ice and form a solid ice wall why his skin was cold?” He asked, looking back at her amusedly. “Like I said before, it’s complicated and I’ll tell you when I’m ready.” He said as he kept walking, trying to pick up the trail of any prey.
Post by Samandriel on Oct 28, 2018 22:52:00 GMT -5
She scrunched up her face to be pouty. "Whatever. Better tell me soon or you get no cuddles." Oka shook her head. This was too much, being in the middle of this childish game. And if this was the norm for the next five years? No way.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 28, 2018 23:09:57 GMT -5
Draco snorted softly. “If you don’t let me do my work and get you some food, you’ll be too hungry to cuddle anyway.” He retorted as he kept walking, trying to pick up on some prey that had been in the area before.
Post by AshLightning on Oct 29, 2018 6:59:28 GMT -5
Draco kept walking when all of a sudden he apparently spotted something because he dropped into a hunting crouch and Asla stopped walking so she didn’t make any noise, watching as Draco slowly walked ahead.
Oka froze in place. She knew how much noise she made when she went along, and if she hadn't spooked the prey yet, better count themselves lucky. They needed this food. Acorn lifted herself a bit, so she could look over Oka's head and see the scene.
Kace's eyes widened as the tail flung at him, and he was knocked onto his side. For a moment, the wind was knocked out of him. Making no attempt to reach for his sword, the boy weakly raised one of his hands, but stayed down as if to show he meant no harm. However, he kept his shield beside him in case the dragon decided to attack again.
Onyx looked awestruck at the male's ability to change the colour of his scales, and let out a tiny gasp as he did so. She nodded, then curled up against his side, already half asleep. It had been a tiring day indeed, and she just needed some rest.
Oks licked her chops hungrily. Yes, that would suffice. Maybe the two legs for the two humans, and she could chow down on the rest. After all, her body was better equipped to handle the fattier parts, and then organs and such. Humans couldn't handle much except muscle. "Great! I know how to start a fire." Acorn offered.
