Ramona looked out the window recalling everything she had went through in the last couple of days. She was so angry that she was stuck on a planet that she never wanted to be on.
She felt Lani eye’s continually on her. She went into the cleaning unit and changed back into her uniform. Lani looked surprised that she did that.
“Why are you back in your, your clothing?”
“I am an officer and I will be leaving once I receive the call.” Ramona said coldly.
The soumd of the vid communicator went off and Ramona was there to answer it.
“Hello Comand—.” Her voice trailed off when instead of her commander she seen Carl.
“You son of slag. What have you done?”
“I have done nothing. You have gotten yourself in this predicament. Your drive to know how to beat your opponent at any means necessary gotten you stuck there.”
“You know what they are?”
“No and that is the agreement the counsel had struck with that race ages ago. We do not interfere and we do not dig into private affairs.”
Ramona felt steam rise from her collar as she realized that Carl had sentenced her to live with a race of, of dragons.
“Now you post has been given to Melami Osora. The commander was informed of the matter and she is disappointment that you would have gone to such extremes without realizing the ramifications of your actions.”
“RAMIFICATIONS! Carl when I see you again I will make you wish you that you never met me.”
“Oh mona. Never you still have not given me a piece of that bod of yours. As far as us seeing each other again. That I am pretty sure will not happen. Enjoy your new life lieutenant.”
The call ended. Lani had stepped out of the room but she heard every thing. She felt bad that she was tricked but she will try to ease her transition. She walked into the room and the female was still standing near the vid communicator.
“Are you well?”
“I need air. I need to run and clear my head.”
Her voice sound odd. almost high in pitch but controlled. “I can take you to the boarder lands. you can run along the stream. No one will bother you there.”
“Thank you give me a moment to change.”
Lani was smelling a mixture of emotions rolling off of her. It would be best to let her go through her process to grieve and acceptance.
Nonilli went about his day as usual. He stretched his wings and circled his land. He made sure everything was running smoothly.
He flew above all the other dragons so he can be alone. He did not know what to do with his new charge. She did not shift so she will not be like the other females. She will not be as strong as them either so he will need to find something suitable for her.
Then it struck him that she will be useful in educating him and to help him with an idea that will not cause another to be sentence to a life with there people against their will.
Pleased with his thoughts he noticed Lani flying below along the stream route. She was supposed to be with the human female.
He flew down next to her and mentally asked why was she not with the female.
Lani motioned her head down showing that the human was running along the stream. She tried to explained what happened and that she seemed to really want to exert her self to deal with her emotions.
He thought about how it must be affecting her. He thought to her, ‘bring her to me after.’
She shook her head and continued to watch as Ramona ran.
Nonilli turned and went back to his home to be greeted be Orick and a stack of work.
“Sire we have to get these signed and sent to the Wai so the agreement is binding,”
Nonilla shimmered back into form and grabbed his garment and tied it around his waist.
“Come then. Lets do this quickly. After I want you to have food placed in the new home of the lieutenant.”
Orick looked at him as if there was not food placed for her there. Also a generator that can simulate food if needed.
“Food is placed there already for her, sire?”
“Sorry bring food that I will eat there. I will dine there and return after.”
“Do you think that is wise. She seems to bring the beast out of you.”
“I will control myself. I am king. I will manage.”
“Well Lani and I will be there so just in case.”
He nodded and started to read over and sign the documents.
Orick needed to consult Torin. The elder of his line. She will be able to advise him on what is unfolding.
The run did her good. She was able to get her frustration worked out on the steep terrain. Since she was stuck her she decided to make the best of it.
Lani was in the room when she returned. Ramona had not seen her dragon and she wanted to be comfortable around them.
“Lani can I see your dragon form?”
Lani looked uncomfortable about the request.
“I am not sure that is a good idea.”
“Why? This is my home now I should get comfortable with the visuals.”
Lani started to wring her hands together in nervousness.
“You see our dragons have minds and emotions of there own and if they do not wish to come out then they don’t. We work together.”
Symbiotic union. Does she not want to meet me?
“She a bit snappy and I don’t want you hurt.”
“What do I do to show her I am not a threat. Or any of the dragons?”
“I am not sure. With our kind we bend our heads and expose our necks but your neck is small. I’m not sure.”
“Well let’s try it out.”
“If your hurt then I may get punished by the king.”
“Please. I have to learn. Now my neck is exposed since I wearing and tank top. I will bend my head and cover my eyes until I get the signal it’s ok. What would be the signal?”
“She will lick your neck and nudge you.”
“I’m ready.” She said but her adrenaline was racing and she needed to calm down. Animals on earth tend to get overly excepted when prey has allot of adrenaline pumping.
Lani walked near the balcony window and shimmered into her dragon. Ramona bent her head immediately and waited for the dragon to come near her.
She heard the claws scape against the floor towards her and the heavy breathing next to her. She kept her eyes closed and tried her best to stay calm.
She felt it sniff her neck for what seemed like an eternity and there it was a swift lick and nudge. Ramona reached out her hand to touch the dragon before seeing it. Then she opened her eyes.
Lani was beautiful. She shimmered a sea blue with gold flecks. He talons were curved and wings were very feminine looking. She looked at her to see what she was doing.
Ramona rubbed the side of her neck and Lani stepped back and shifted quickly.
“Did I do something wrong?
“You rubbed the side of her neck. That is too intimate. Confusing. She likes you and find you interesting. Lets keep the rubbing between us ok.”
Ramona really had a lot to learn.
“Does she have a name?”
“Yes she is luani. She will visit you again.” Lani giggled.
“What is funny?”
“She finds you like a small animal like your people keep.”
“Yes a pet. She likes you.
