The short one with blue hair extended a hand, and she took it cautiously after a moment. She was a little worried that she might... Snap it in half or something, since it looked so small, but soon found that it was just as strong as hers. Stronger, even. She wasn't really sure what to do after that. Shake his hand? Let go?

So she sat down a little awkwardly, holding the tiny hand and trying to get out what she wanted to say and tell him just what was wrong:

"There's that chick over there? The girl that's on fire? I dunno how she's doing that but it's really freaking me--I mean, it worries me greatly even though it's entirely irrational; although maybe it's not, given the whole burning thing, but... But..."

She let go of the hand this time and hugged her bag to her chest. She felt something hard and flat within it, but didn't want to look at what it was at the moment. She was too busy glancing at the fire. Had she gotten closer? No... But there were more of them there, she could swear there were more. Why were they all sticking so close to the flames?

"I'm... I'm..." she finally spit it out but had to look down at her feet to manage it, "the fire is really, really, really scaring me."

She was so embarrassed. She didn't remember ever being really scared of anything before. Now she was just being paranoid. Obsessively paranoid, even. Thankfully, the tall one had supplied a bit of a distraction, as when she looked at him, he was morphing before her very eyes from a... Whatever, to a human.

"Forgive me ma'am. I am... New to being in this environment. May I help you up?"

"That's... Alright, I wasn't really scared by it or anything but..." she pulled herself up with the help of his outstretched arm, and then she pulled his hand a bit closer to her face, looking over it in amazement, "That was incredible! How did you do that?" she flipped his hand over, "Are you a lycanthrope...? No, that's silly, there's no--eekitmoved!!"

She dropped the tall one's hand and hid herself somewhat behind him. The girl on fire had moved a bit. She knew she was overreacting, but she couldn't help it. She continued watching that fire, terrified, until another girl came over to them. Alexa couldn't quite tell because of her divided attention, but she could have sworn that the girl had two different colored eyes.

"Haruka? Oh, well... I'm Alexa." she moved away from the tall one a bit, mostly because she should probably give him a bit more space. She brushed a couple strands of still-wet-from-sea-water hair out of her face and behind her ear.

"'Where this is?' You mean, you don't know either?" she suddenly felt a little relieved. This made sense. The tall one said he wasn't used to the environment, and Haruka didn't know where this was... At least she wasn't the only one.

The short one sat down near her after deciding to stay.
"Oh, t-thank you!"

She sat herself down next to him, just watching and waiting.
She became terribly confused when another woman seemingly ran into her and started hugging her. How were these people not getting burned?

They must not all be human. The tall one isn't... I don't think...

OOC: Might as well go over to the bigger crowd. >>

IC: Sighing, Leon turned away from the other two. They didn't seem exactly. . . keen on answering, so he turned towards a larger crowd. This crowd was quite large; how many were there? Leon guessed five or six, but there were probably more. He walked over towards them.

He neared them, walking past a girl hugging another girl. . . the only thing that was strange was that the girl being hugged was on fire, and the other wasn't getting burned. Leon gave them an eye, but didn't really mind it. He kept walking. He'd seen stranger things.

He saw a girl sitting, and smiled. "Can I join you? My name is Leon Horando, but most call me Taz. . . can't figure out why, though." he said to her. He held out a hand to greet her; she seemed calm, but Leon could sense something about her.

OOC: That's you, stickx. >_<

Looking up from her dance of euphoria, Nox noticed someone trekking toward her, his pace cautious. Even from this distance, Nox could detect the shell of protection encircling his body. Carefully placing one hand on her thigh, beside her lethal chakram. His tone was a bit nervous, but she didn't detect any signs of hostility. "Oiyo, I'm Nox Imbolc." She smiled, letting her hand droop away from her weapon, the fire shifting around her body like a tongued blanket.

Before she could say anymore, a darting figure caught her attention. A person, a man from what she could detect was dashing towards them, nothing more than a hazy blur. Nox moved back a few steps, realizing that he couldn't stop. The fire lashed out in front of her face, sheilding her eyes from the soaring grains that he dredged up in his skidding halt. She blinked her amber eyes a few times, taking in his appearance. He seemed human enough, but the other man, Galbatorix, had a somewhat draconic look to him. Not that she minded, she knew a few oddities here and there.

"Yo dere, I'm Nox." She chirped, bringing her hand to her head in a mock-salute, a light laugh springing from her lips. Looking to the side, she noticed that another girl was staring at her, a horror-stricken look on her face, her eyes wide and dilated. Nox's eyebrows rose, and her bangs fluttered around her pale face, wafted by the inferno. "Are you okay?" She asked, not daring to take a step closer.

Looking at her illuminated arm, Nox realized that the inferno surrounding her form must be quite a shock. A person on fire could terrify someone... "It's all right. It doesn't hurt me." She soothed, holding her palm to her cheek. However, before she could say more, she heard the familiar cry of, "NOXIE!" Hardly daring to believe her traitorous ears, Nox waited for the illusion to break and leave her already torn heart into a graveyard of broken memories. Yet, even someone in denial couldn't ignore a hurtling body mass that knocked her backwards, nearly sending her spiraling into the waves.

"...A-Aara?!" She choked, feeling strong arms surround her, already feeling the first tears prickle at her molten eyes. Burying her face in Aara's shoulder, Nox felt the first few sobs of relief rip at her esophogus. Tilting her head so that the tears slipping down her cheeks could evaporate in the flames more quickly, Nox smiled, the flames rocketing higher into the sky as her joy accelerated. "Oh, I just decided to take a vacation to this bleak, lifeless world where strange humanoid creatures roam. I died, silly."

Even about her death, Nox could kid around. Something admirable...and a little odd. Then again, they were dead. Logic didn't make much sense here.

Sending out my soul to worlds more beautiful
Kari sat up, just to see someone go flying past. "What." She whispered, quickly getting up she fall forwards stopping herself before she hit the ground. "I wonder if I still have my magic?" She whispered, Kari made her way to the beach. "Water." She muttered, seeing that she still had her magic she smiled; then remembering that she's dead her smile turned into a frown. "Why that little jerk." She growled. Kari walked around the island. Kari saw four people talking not wanting to be near them she walked off in the other direction. Kari lifted her hand up to her neck just to feel that she still had on her choker. Kari looked around, she stopped by the ocean. "Where I'm I?" She thought.

In that place where I cook things
Jon was now quite baffeled with the situtation. He had seen so many different things that weren't from his own world, it was starting to take its tole on him. Where in the world is this place? None of this makes any sense. He stood almost still as the young lady grabbed his hand, asking how he had transformed. As she had run back, he took a look at his own hand. Strange, I feel, so....right here.

He looked back and forth at the spectacles going on around them. He then caught sight of another person that had gone up to the waters in the distance. He turned back to the one that called himself a Commander. His mind seemed to lock onto that word over and over into his head, until it became his new setting for the remainder of time. He walked over to Terran, croutching to talk to him. "Commander, there seems to be another person that may be lost over yonder. Shall i bring her to the group to see if she knows anything?" He felt comforted that he could be asking for orders once again, even if he had no idea where he was.

After being introduced to the girl named Nox. Galbatorix was happy to see that at least everybody here was weirded out a little by all the random and crazy things going on. For the moment it looked as if Nox was busy, so Galbatorix decided to check out the surrounding area before talking to her. She did seem like quite the nice person though. He turned around and used his power to raise himself up off the ground about 100 feet.

He scanned the area and noticed that the forest that wasn't too far away looked very dangerous, and probably shouldn't be gone through alone. After a couple minutes of this he turned back around and gasped. Nox and the other chick were raised off the ground with him, caught in his field. "I guess I need to get used to my power here. Everything is working differently now. This is really annoying." He began lowering himself and the 2 girls to the ground.

She fell in the water. But the fire's still going.

Somewhere amidst her fear, she was baffled as well. It just didn't make logical sense. She tried the whole steady-breathing thing as best as she could. It was just a little bit of fire. It wasn't going to kill her as long as she stayed away. Wait... She was already dead, right? So she shouldn't have to worry, right?

Too bad. She was worrying.

"Can I join you? My name is Leon Horando, but most call me Taz... Can't figure out why, though."

A pointy eared boy approached her. He looked a lot like some of the characters from a videogame she had played once. She also seemed to recall him zipping around a bit earlier. Sort of like... The Flash. Without the bright costume.

"Sure. I'm Alexa." she said in return, scorching over so that there was more room. This was really more out of politeness than anything, because there was plenty of beach for them to sit on. She found the irony of his nickname a bit amusing. Taz the Tasmanian Devil was obviously what he was referring too. Was this guy from earth too?

No... The ears. Probably not human. Right. Remember that.

To distract herself from the fire that was taking up 80% of her thought process, she decided to see just what was in her bag. What had been in it when she... died? Well, there was some food, some art stuff, and some cash, she could have sworn. But when she reached in, she was quite pleased to find her favorite sketchbook and pencil in there. Upon flipping through the pages, she found that they were blank, and there was no water on them despite the fact that the rest of her was dripping wet. The pencil was super-sharp as well.

'My power...' she thought to herself, 'these people are using theirs without worrying about it, so maybe it'd be okay if I...?'

The flames got lifted into the air with the guy that was near them. This made her mind go blank for a second. Soon she recovered though, and tried to focus on anything but the fire. What was it she was going to do? She may as well do something useful... That's it!

She started scribbling in her sketchbook, her face going into an expression of deep concentration.

Leon smiled at her politeness. She looked human, like his father. "Father. . . . .", he thought, feeling the emotion of sorrow once more. But, again, he shook it away, and sat down on the beach. He plopped onto his back, looking up at the sky. This only made him feel more depressed. It was grey, like clouds, only different; it appeared to be the natural shade of the sky. Was it? Leon hadn't the slightest clue. He sat up, and turned to the girl.

He noticed her holding a sketchbook, and he smiled. "What're you drawing?" he asked, curiousity in his voice. He suddenly realized. "OH! You must be from Earth, right? My father was from Earth. . ." he said, a slight smile on the tip of his lips. He looked at her; she seemed deep in concentration. He realized he had probably broken that concentration, and decided to be quiet.

Suddenly, as if he had snapped his fingers, he realized something that changed everything. "If I'm dead, and every other thing wound up here, wouldn't that mean that my mom and dad did too!? And. . . Maria!!", he said, a short gasp escaping his mouth. His eyes widened; how could he have missed this detail? If he was indeed dead, he could meet with Maria, his mother, and father.

But, that would have to wait. They had probably gone to the city that Leon had seen in the distance. He was more curious in Alexa; maybe she had an idea where they were? "Sorry to ask so many things. . . but do you know where we are? I mean, I know that we're all dead, but where did we wind up? I don't imagine that you know, but I'm just curious. . .", he asked.

OOC: >_> I'm tired.

OOC: I'm tired too, don't worry. XD
---------------

"Huh?" her concentration was broken, but it wasn't by the pyrophobia this time. That was alright, she supposed. The one with pointy ears--Taz, as it was--had asked what she was drawing.

"Well, it's gonna be a little turtle when it's done." she said, tilting the book towards him so he could see what looked like the rough outline of a turtle. Then she went back into her little concentration zone, trying to get it done rather quickly while still keeping it looking something like a turtle. She found it easier to work with her drawings when they were closer to real life.

"OH! You must be from Earth, right? My father was from Earth..."

It took her a second to register what he had said. 'Click click click bing!' was what she imagined it would have sounded like if her mind made noises. She spun around to face Taz.

"Right! So you are human! Well, at least part human, right?" a smile crossed her face for the first time that day, 'Yes, I was right!' she thought happily. Then her mood shifted a bit when he asked about where they were.

"I'm sorry... But I really don't have a clue. I suppose this could be some sort of... Afterlife. Like heaven or something." She glanced at the flames and a few fresh memories of her death came to mind. She shuddered involuntarily and shuffled back a bit more.

"I'd like to go and explore a bit, see where we are... But with that... Fire... Chick in the way, I don't know..." she paused momentarily to stare frightfully at the flames that danced around the girl, before forcing herself to focus back on the sketchbook, "but if this works, then I might be able to manage something... Finished!"

She put the pencil down in the sand and placed the book on her lap. Then she took a deep breath and brought her hand over the drawing, focusing intently on the image. After a few seconds of nothing happening and she just looked irritated.

"C'mon you stupid thing," she knocked on the sketchbook, "You always seem to work when I don't need it, so why not now?"

Then, slowly, from the top, the lines on the paper seemed to stretch and grow until they were three-dimensional and sticking off the page. Alexa grew much more cheerful at this, and she moved her hand as if she were pulling the lines right off the page. Soon, the image sort of popped out of the paper all together, and the now three-dimensional turtle rolled off the book and onto the sand. It looked a lot like a real turtle, minus some detail and the fact that there was nothing in between the lines except for a bit of loose shading. The turtle didn't move for a second, and Alexa watched it intently. Its head was in its shell (and she couldn't blame the poor thing), but soon it poked its head out again. She threw her hands up, "YES!! It worked! Wha--H-hey, wait! I haven't given you the note yet!"

The turtle had begun to crawl its way across the sand towards the flames, but it turned its head and crawled on back to Alexa without too much trouble. Alexa scribbled some words onto her sketchpad and pulled those out as well, handing them to the turtle. The turtle took the words in its mouth as if it was some ribbon, and started to head out to the ocean. She had to grab it and turn it around so that it was facing the right way before letting it go again.

"Hmm... Maybe I should have drawn something a little smarter than a turtle... But it should get the job done. I hope..." she looked up distractedly, "I hope graphite isn't flammable..."

The turtle was set on its course, and, as Alexa planned it, it should make it through the flames to the girl. There the turtle would let go of the words, and they would form the sentence, "Please turn off the fire?"

She hoped that the question mark wouldn't confuse anyone. She didn't mean it to be intruding. But she really, really, really didn't like that much fire. She sat back down and prayed, for the sake of her remaining sanity, that it would work.

Haruka sighed hearing the answer. "Riight...and sorry...uuh...but i was really...careless." She sat down. "Don't tell me that this IS death... hmm...but i'd like it more if i died in my bed...not stabbed by Emeth..." then she looked at the pointy eared one. "Hng...Taz eh? That reminds me to one of the guardian's name...Altez..." she grinned. at least she still got her lifetime memory, she thought.

And then she saw the other girl draws something. "Oh...is that...a turtle?" she saw the paper suddenly moving,stretching, and forming something- a turtle. Just like what she drew earlier.

"..." Haruka can only look at this. Wow.That kind of ability can be very useful to rebound those two devils... she thought, although yeah, she knew that calling her two brothers devils are rude...but she knew already that it's her brothers that put an inferno chain in the amulet, that's why she was taking two, as she wondered...she really want to rip their head off their neck and stick it on their ass now...

but Hey!you won't meet them again if you're dead, ne? She cheered up thinking about that. "Umm...what's that turtle going to do?" she asked the girl--Alexa-- as she heard the others calling her sometimes-- about the little turtle. Looks like it's going to the flame-- Oh oh.

"NO WAY! That turtle-- isn't it made of...paper? Or at least...graphite??? I thought graphites are flammable...i always use graphite to buffer the burner... or maybe the paper's the one did it... but anyway, *cough*, isn't it going to burn if it goes through the flame?" And she rethink about it again.Then she looked at the blue-haired midget she stepped on earlier. "And by the way... i'm so sorry i stepped on you...what was your name? You...haven't tell me yet...i hope you're not hurt anywhere..." she said as she recalled the time when she accidently stepped on her teacher summoner's head when he was looking for the summonite falling from the table...

"Commander, there seems to be another person that may be lost over yonder. Shall i bring her to the group to see if she knows anything?"

Terran snapped out of his daydreaming and went back to trying to help everyone out. "That might be wise Jon. She might know something. And if not, she may need some company as well. Its scary being in this life. Giant people stepping on you." Terran accentuated the last part as he looked up at Haruka. He took a sigh to calm down, and said with a tone calmer, but just as sharp. "My name is Terran, madame."

Terran heard the frighten girls name, at least he wasn't sure if he did. Alexa... I believe... She was talking to another man, one of the silver haired ones from before. The were talking of a place called "Earth". He knew thats what the ground was, but there was an actual place? Or were they saying they were of the ground?

Alexa was drawing something with paper and some odd tool. So many new things... What were they all? Terran had not much time to say anything, for whatever she was drawing came off the paper. A turtle- like creature that Terran had never seen. He had seen land turtles, but this one had fins like a fish... And also being almost transparent, minus a faint outline and shading.

Terran felt lost. This world was new to him, the people in it were new, nothing made sense. Terran felt combforted with Jon and Alexa. They acted so strange, with wills and personalities he had never seen before. But already Terran considered them friends. And Possibly Haruka... As long as she learned to watch were she walked.

Jon saluted to Terran. "Sir." He jogged off to where the other girl was, while thinking of all that had happened. That girl, she must have been in some kind of holographic fire, there's no way she could normally do that. And that Alexa girl, she has some sort of strange power with that pen and paper. Then why was she so interested in my own? Then there's lady Haruka and sir Leon. Leon mentioned Earth as a different planet. Which would mean that there are intelligent beings elsewhere. Lady Haruka's eyes are quite strange as well. Thank goddness we have a commander in all of this chaos.

Then he got to even more in depth thought. It seems now though that there is no denieing it. I am dead. Everyone else seems to think so as well. There might not be anyway back. Then I suppose....there might not be much purpose for me being here. He shook his head and kept going. Nonetheless, I have orders right now, so i must carry them out at least.

As he got closer to the girl, he began to slow down, looking at her features. Are those......cat ears? He snapped out of his stupor, remembering that he had a job to do. He got close and annouced himself loudly. "Pardon me madam, but we could not help but notice another person on this beach. We were hoping you might know the wereabouts of where we are. If not, we would hope that you would join our small group of....." Jon had a hard time thinking of what to call themselves. "Death refugess." He stood at full attention with his face as hard as stone, as he was always taught to do.

Sitting inside the viewfinder of a camera, watchin
Aara hugged her younger friend gently, falling easily back into the role of her protector as she smoothed the brunette's hair from her face and pulled away. Even if Nox was joking as usual, the redhead had a feeling that she wouldn't find out much more concerning the pyrokinetic's death just yet.

Within the safe borders of Aara's Anima spell, Sylph roused herself from atop her human friend's head and swooped over to Nox's shoulder, giving her an affectionate lick on the cheek with a long pink tongue, her opalescent scales glimmering red in the reflection of the dancing flames.

Aara shouldn't be sad that the brown-eyed one was dead, if they were together. This was the message that the little dragon managed to convey through the rapport, still without true words. But she understood it anyway. Crooning, Sylph hopped back onto the Anima witch's head, her tail tangling itself into the red strands of hair.

Now that their effusive reunion was done, they had a few pressing matters at hand- beginning with the wildfire that Nox hadn't yet bothered to call off. Sylph was right; better that they were together, and Aara would, as usual, make sure Nox didn't burn the whole place down.

Before she open her mouth, however, something small and very strange caught her attention. Crawling slowly into the ring of flickering flames was ... a turtle? Monochromatic and not incredibly detailed, it looked like a sketching come to life. Which were Aara's exact suspicions as she bent down and lightly touched it with two fingers, feeling the magic within. Almost exactly like the sendings people would sometimes make back in Alcheraa, though obviously crafted in an entirely different way, and not as complex. Years of keeping books confirmed that it was a drawing, a sending of paper and graphite. At first she wondered why it hadn't been burnt to a crisp, but, with previous research and innate magical empathy to back her up, she figured that it wasn't flammable because it hadn't been made to be flammable.

Sylph peered over the top of Aara's head inquisitively, black eyes bright on the little turtle. It was not alive like she was. Therefore, it was not as interesting. Devoid of a potential playmate, Sylph tucked her long white snout back into the fold's of Aara's hair, dissmissing the turtle with the mental equivilant of a sigh. As she did so, a paper note dropped out of the turtle's mouth. Picking up the turtle and dipositing it in the crook of her left arm, Aara read the note with a slight smile.

Please turn off the fire?

She stood up, chuckling, and handed the note to Nox with a wave of her hand.

"See? Not everyone appreciates your bonfires. Cool down, Noxie!"

Still with the turtle in her arms, she stepped out of the flames and began walking over to the other group of people. No longer needed, she let her magicked ward die with a pale flicker of light around her form. Aara didn't need the magical empathy of Anima to tell her who the sending belonged to: on the beach was a girl with a pad of paper and pencil.

"I guess this is yours?" she said brightly, holding the turtle out. "He's cute! Worked pretty well, too. Sorry about Nox. She's a bit of a firecracker, but you get used to her." The girl looked so nervous that Aara smiled, trying to be encouraging. She apparently didn't like fire. "My name's Aara, so you know, and this is Sylph." she jerked a thumb upwards, indicating the little white dragon on her head, who flipped her wings in response to being talked about.

Galbatorix walked over to Aara and Alexa and smiled. The girl looked frightened, but he could tell she was starting to calm down. he wanted to make friends in this place and it seemed Aara and Alexa were as good as anybody to start with. He sat down next Alexa and patted her on the shoulder. 'It's going to be ok. I think that most people are frightened of girls covered in fire. I know I am."

He was trying to think of something to say, but was at a loss for words. He looked up towards Aara an dput out his hand. "I'm Galbatorix if you don't know already. it's a pleasure to meet you." Galbatorix noticed the little dragon on her head and wondered if he could communicate with it because they were both dragon..................

As Purg was walking towards the dangerous woods, Purg stopped and searched through his mind to see if he had all of his skills since he felt much weaker. As he searched, Purg realized that almost 70% of his powers had been sealed. Purg thought to himself," This is isn't, it is a nightmare in which I don't have a slight
reason for having. Well, at least I was left with 3 of my powers and everything else which I will make suffice.Chain Control!!" Purg summoned many chains with
metal rectangular plates and crafted those chains into a high chair to listen to everyone's introductions. After sitting and listening for a few minutes, Purg
had familarized with who those people were.

Purg looked at everyone and said to himself," I don't open up to people but I
guess I can aleast set up some shelter for everyone and make some dinner.
Purg got up and the chains fused back with him and he looked at the woods.
Purg said to himself," I don't expect any of these children to enter the forest
yet but maybe that Jon fellow would.... I don't think that would be right. I'll
get some food and some materials to build homes from this forest. Purg disappeared deep into the woods to seek food and materials to build homes plus
some materials to prepare some bon fires and the food.

"O-oh, thank you!" Alexa took back the sketchy turtle from the woman who had offered it so politely. "I'm sorry to make such a bother about... Nox," she was trying to make a mental list of all the names she'd gotten thus far, "I really don't know what's come over me--it's just that the fire is hard to cope with at the moment..."

She stroked the turtle's head (or the outline of it, anyway) but it flipped it's flippers around a bit in protest. She let it down and it scuttled away towards the sea. She didn't know if it would come back. She didn't really know what happened to half of her little scribbles she'd created, actually. Some of them just disappeared, and some of them stayed alive with a free will entirely of their own. That's why she mostly drew plant-eaters and non-deadly objects now.

Aara introduced Sylph and Alexa's eyes lit up.
"Woah. Is that a real dragon? That is a dragon, right?" She wanted to examine it, but it looked entirely sentient and would probably not enjoy being poked. She'd just have to look at a distance.

"That's... That's so awesome, I've never actually seen a real dragon before...!"
Frankly, she didn't used to think they even existed, but the normal laws didn't seem to apply here. She'd fit right in.

The man with levitation powers sat down next to her and comforted her.
"Thank you," she replied, giving a smile to add some sincerity, "I really will be alright, it's just that anything burning is... Kind of shocking right now."

The happened to glance over and notice a very tall... Robot? Or maybe it was sitting in a chair of some sort? It appeared to be observing them, but soon disappeared behind the cover of the trees. She seemed to recall seeing him earlier. Maybe he was shy? Or just a bit paranoid or suspicious? Or maybe he was going to do something? Who knows...?

She looked around at the odd group that had assembled around.
"So, um... It's safe to assume that most of you guys aren't Earthlings, right?"

Maybe they were aliens. Like in that one movie where the chick goes off into space and meets her departed boyfriend's soul on this alien beach or something. She didn't remember how it went exactly, but she was starting to see some similarities.

"Earthlings?" Terran chimed in finally. "I've heard Earth said many times as if it was a place. Do you mean that you live in the ground?" This was all greatly confusing to Terran. He felt overloaded. He took a deep breath and looked over for a second to see someone scutling away into the forest. He only got a glance, but he seemed to be wearing some sort of armor, more powerful than even the Elves ever made.

The tiny turtle scutled away past him. It was an odd sight as before. Terran reached out for it and it came closer to his hand. It was odd to him. Terran had never seen an animal like this, yet alone it come near him. Terran was quite mistaken though. The creature bit his hand suddenly as if to tell him back off. Terran scooted over slightly in avoidence of the turtle.

The other man with silver hair floated down from the sky and landed comfortably next to Alexa. He introduced himself as Galbatorix. Terran reliezed he hadn't known if anyone answered or not, so he turned his attention back to them, listening for answers.

Aara looked up at Alexa's exclaimations, just able to see Sylph's opalescent scales out of her peripheral vision. Reaching up, she plucked the drake off of her head and let Sylph wrap her tail around her arm, balancing on her wrist.

"Well, she's real," the redhead answered with some bemusement. "She's not actually a dragon though ... more like a cousin to the dragon. They're called drakes. They drink nectar and don't have fangs. Sylph won't get much bigger than this. Lucky for me, since she likes to use my head as a perch."

Curious, Sylph leaned forward, one delicate paw on Aara's gloved hand as she studied Alexa with a slight tilt to her elegant small head. She trilled, half a question, half a greeting. then flipped her wings and sat back on her haunches, relaxing on her human friend's arm. The drawing mage was nice. They should be friends.

Aara blinked and looked down at Sylph, surprised at her statement. It was as close to using words to speak as the little drake had ever come. The witch moved her tongue around her mouth experimentally, attempting to translate what Sylph had said into a more common language.

"She called you a ... 'drawing mage'," she finally said, looking back down at Alexa. "And what's an Earthling?"
