((Back already. :p))
Ailyn shook her head and flung her arms out in a wild shrug. "Then why aren't you eating me, huh?"
-Because I hate raw meat.- Star sighed, settling down. -You're not a threat...- She just didn't need to know certain things.
"Oh, thank you," Ailyn said sarcastically. "That's very flattering." She rubbed at the sap on her hands and muttered under her breath. "Ungrateful lizard."
Star growled. -I'm warm-blooded. I'm not a lizard.- He protested. -And you can't blame me, I'm acting a lot better than most dragons would.-
"Just because others are worse doesn't mean you can't be better." Ailyn retorted, flopping down onto the ground again, knowing full well she should be hightailing it out of here as fast as she could.
She held up a hand. "And don't even ask what that's supposed to mean, I haven't figured it out yet, I'm tired. But I like it."
Star huffed at her, hot air coming out that could have cooked you if it was sustained long enough. -Out of curiosity, how do you walk so confidently in that form? It's vulnerable. Your senses are dull and your strength greatly limited.-
"It doesn't feel that way to us." Ailyn answered. "It's all we've ever known, so it's just normal to us. I'm sure there's some creature somewhere that has better hearing, or sense of smell, than you. Do you feel 'limited' next to them?"
((I have to go to bed, goodnight!))
Star felt a smirk coming on. -Oh no, that's not the point of view at all. But never mind that. You've done your good deed for the day no run off and go kill things.-
"And what, you're vegan, I suppose?" Ailyn snapped, standing up. "You sustain yourself on berries and sticks?"
-I kill that which threatens me, and that which I must eat. I can't say the same for humans, who also kill for sport.- Star told her. He got up and stretched his wings, getting ready to leave, but he let out a pained groaned ad sank to the ground again. His wound really hurt.
"Again with the stereotyping." Ailyn sighed, watching him try to get up.
"You probably shouldn't fly until that's healed."
Star groaned, huffing. -I have to fly to get to my cave, I can't swim and I can't climb.- He was trapped out in the open, vulnerable.
"Well you can't stay here." Ailyn stated. "My friends hunt - for food - in this area all the time."
((I have to go clean stuff.))
-And I can't change forms with this wound...- Star curled up, frustration and a bit of panic rising up inside her.
"Don't you have somewhere else to go?" Ailyn asked. "A...I dunno, backup hideout or something."
-No, the only other place is where I won't be welcome.- Alastair gave a whimpering whinem closing his eyes.
Ailyn watched him for a few seconds, perfectly still as she thought it over. She bit her lip and rolled her eyes at herself. Yeah, you've suddenly contracted acute stupidity. And it might just be terminal.
"Well, lucky for you, I do." She said, grabbing up her bag and slinging it over her shoulders. "Can you walk?"
-You do what?- Star asked, tilting his head slightly. He could walk, he just needed to be able to get up.
She grinned impishly. "Have a backup hideout."
