[Kodchasan [Center At this point, Jayfeather really removed himself from this and sat on his bunk instead. He heard them talking but he merely blocked it out as he rolled up his sleeves and began to pick at the dried up forest green blood on his arms. He would be fine for now since he healed easily the natural way but sooner or later, he would have to help himself a bit so he didn't have scars. He swung his feet as he suddenly heard that they were talking about rot. He flinched a bit, he was a necromancer to some degree, raising skeletons from the ground and whatnot.
A long time ago, his father had sent him to a necromancer school so he could become evil like his father. Jayfeather instead used his powers for good or mostly he usually did. The power gave his wisdom and he loved it, he knew a bit more things than most didn't. He noticed his friend was awake now but continued to sit there on his bunk, really not wanting to bother them any more. He just felt like he was bothering them.
[h3 [center Rhea - Yeseo & Xanthos]]
Yeseo's hand returned to her side. The frown remained on her face. Out of the corner of her eye, she could sense Xanthos cold eyes glaring at the boy. However, the Dragon Lord remained silent, his tail curling around the leg of the chair he sat upon.
As much as Xanthos hated seeing the boy treat the dragonelle as such, he knew it was best for him to stay put. Though he was ready to move should the human prove to be a threat to the small dragonelle. The male's gaze suddenly shifted to the side as a small amount of movement caught his eye.
A soft rumble came from where Rhea laid. Her yellow orange eyes soon were seen, though the glow was dull, barely any life. She heard sounds, though having her mind feel like it was in a fog, the sounds were muddled together. Though she could seemingly sense the ones around her, knew them. The forms dancing in her vision were dark blurs, though recognizable in a sense.
Yeseo turned her head, seeing her fellow dragonelle slowly coming to. She moved over to the other's side, lightly resting a hand on Rhea's forehead. The small female's voice was soft.
[#4682b4 "Good, l-l-least the rot d-didn't take effect..."]
[#b22222 "Least the rot is curable,"] a soft snort came from nearby. Xanthos had his arms across his chest, leaning back in the chair, [#b22222 "Be thankful it wasn't the corruption. That shit is nasty. Once you get that, you're done. Just get turned into a corrupted and forced to serve a 'hive' and the such."]
Yeseo looked over to Xanthos. The look she gave him was mixed feelings, appearing to be fear and maybe a hint of disapproval of the Dragon Lord. Though she looked back to Rhea who remained laying on her side.
[#4682b4 "Even r-r-rot from a n-necromancer is s-s-still difficult t-to deal with."]
[Kodchasan [Center [#228B22 "I don't want to lay down, I want to know that my friend is okay." ] He finally said, brushing off Yesso's hand off his shoulder lightly. He stood there with watery eyes, he had lost all of his potions and small herbs with his bookbag when Rhea and he got into combat into the air. [#228B22 "If only I had my potions... It'd work faster..." ] He finally and sadly said as he stood there, looking down at Rhea with conflict inside of him.
It was guilt and regret that he couldn't do really anything to help the earth dragonelle. He wiped the blood coming from his nose using his wrist, the forest green blood on his wrist. He wasn't going to sit and rest until he was sure that Rhea was okay, it was just apart of him. To help people, creatures or whatever before he got the help he needed, however it did make him a bit ignorant and stubborn. ]
[h3 [center Rhea - Yeseo & Xanthos]]
Yeseo continued her work. A soft hum seemed to come from the female. Though her tail remained tucked between her legs. Her grayish eyes glowed ever so slightly, the pupils round, calm and relaxed. She glanced over to Jay out of the corner of her eye, but her vision returned back to Rhea.
With a careful touch, her fingers slid into the red jar, coming out covered in what appeared to be a thick, red substance. Yeseo delicately rubbed the salve on the current exposed wounds. Despite her gentle touch, the dragonelle was quick. It almost seemed she didn't want the very salve she was rubbing on the wounds to remain on her fingers for too long.
Her eyes shifted to Jay as she was about to move on to the next few wounds on Rhea's belly, when she noticed the blood from his nose. A frown instantly came to her face.
[#4682b4 "M-maybe you should l-l-lay down a-again..."] her voice was quiet.
She lightly rested a hand on Jay's shoulder, her eyes concerned, [#4682b4 "Y-you shouldn't o-o-overwork yourself...p-please...r-r-rest."]
Yeseo was honestly concerned. She could sense the boy's waning energy, nor did she really understand. She was focused on her own work, that the dragonelle never noticed him using his abilities to help with Rhea's care. Though, despite it, part of her was also curious as to why the human was so concerned.
Despite her own nature to help both man, dragon, and any other beast, Yeseo was well aware of the hatred between dragon and man. However, she lived just on the outskirts of Dragon Territory, and her friendship with Lord Xanthos helped with her craft and choice of visitors being kept under radar.
Though, to find a human who suddenly really cared for one of their own, Yeseo didn't quite understand it. Well, maybe she would later on, only time would tell. As of now though, Yeseo had two injured individuals, and she felt it was her duty to try and help them the best she could.
[Kodchasan [Center Jayfeather watched Xanthos as the dragon got the jar that Yesso needed and gave it to the dragonelle. He then kept his forest green eyes on Xanthos as he returned to his seat and sat down, the pale teenager still sitting on his cot with his hands in his lap. He was sure that the male dragon still saw him as a threat so he tried to not make any sudden movements to trigger Xanthos.
He nodded when Yesso said he could help with putting pressure on Rhea's wounds and he got up from his cot. He made his way over to the stone basin that was filled with warm water and began to grab the cloths, putting them in the water before ringing them out of the water. The water could infect Rhea's wounds and he surely didn't want that, he wanted the best for his dragon friend. Well... At this point, he felt like they weren't friends and something even more than that.
He finally got a warm damp cloth and scooted over next to Yesso, his forest green eyes scanning the wounds. He saw the open and bleeding wounds and he pressed the cloth against the bloody areas before closing his eyes. He took a sharp deep breath and little twines of grass came over the cloth to keep it there with pressure. He began to do the same to other wounds, finally ending with a very bloody nose.
It was from using his powers when he was weak, his forest green blood leaking out of both of his nostrils. ]
[h3 [center Rhea - Yeseo & Xanthos]]
Hearing his name from the small dragonelle, Xanthos almost instantly stood. He made his way to her side, once again easily towering over her. With the pair side by side, it was easy to see that Yeseo was indeed a runt. Small with a petite build to her.
The female's eyes shifted to the highest shelf, [#4682b4 "If y-y-you could reach m-me down the r-r-red jar please..."]
Without a second thought, Xanthos reached upwards. He easily picked the jar off the shelf, handing it to the small dragonelle. He somehow managed to keep a blank face, though his eyes once again softened. However, once he had finished, Xanthos returned to his chair. His eyes hardened once again as they settled on Jayfeather. It was clear the dragon was ready to move should the boy prove to be a threat.
Yeseo took the jar, giving Xanthos a small smile. She then made her way back to where Rhea was laying. Her eyes laid upon the wounds on Rhea's stomach, which despite the bandages that had been there, were starting to bleed profusely again. Yeseo held her frown.
She twisted the lid off of the jar, a red mist seeming to puff outwards. Her eyes shifted to where Jay still sat. Yeseo's tail tucked between her legs.
[#4682b4 "I-if you c-c-could take that cloth t-t-there and press it a-against the other w-w-wounds exposed till I-I can get to t-them next."]
Yeseo's eyes shifted to the side. Nearby laid a stone bowl filled with warm water. Next to it, was several cloths which was what she meant.
[K2D Jayfeather let out a very frightened and heavy breath as he watched Xanthos just tower over him, his 6'3 height no longer considered tall compared to Xanthos. His sickles seemed to flash as his hands actually went limp out of his fear, his weapons falling to the ground with a metalic sound. He didn't know why Xanthos scared him so much but it was just something about the male that made him more scared than usual. He took a step back away before Yesso appeared between him and Xanthos, watching her tail as it wrapped around Xanthos's.
He listened and watched the female calm down her friend or mate, he wasn't sure about that yet. He was still tensed up as he always was, his shoulders standing high as he was silently watching. He even watched as Yesso bowed a bit at him and he raised his eyebrows but still didn't say anything. It was like he withdrew himself from talking and even asking questions, mostly because he didn't know these people and he was kinda hurt, not as much as Rhea though. He mentally told himself to remember Xanthos's name as Yesso began to approach him, taking steps back from the dragonelle until she just placed the seeds down.
[#228B22 "T-Thank you." ] He barely mumbled, stumbling over to the seeds as his body was still in pain. He grabbed one of the the seeds and put it in his mouth, beginning to slowly chew then before sitting down on his cot with the rest in his palm. He watched Yesso closely, his hands shoving the seeds in his mouth as he kept on chewing. He finished the last one and sat there silently for a moment before he let out a long breath. [#228B22 "M-May I be of assistance?" ] He asked, his hands twitching as he was still totally tensed up. He could never relax or even calm down without having to drug himself with herbs and that was annoying to him a lot. But he ignored his anxiety as he really wanted to help get his friend healthy again, he didn't want anything else except for Rhea to be better, he didn't care about himself at all and it showed when he asked to help. He also ignored the fact that he probably still lacked the energy to help in the first place. ]
[h3 [center Rhea - Yeseo & Xanthos]]
Xanthos' gaze shot to the boy. Sensing what he took as aggression, the male stood up swiftly, placing himself between Yeseo and Jayfeather. Xanthos easily towered over Jay, his tail lashing one way then the other in quick swipes. An inhuman growl erupted from him, eyes glowing brightly.
[#b22222 "I'd be careful where you draw your weapons boy, cause you cause any harm to the very one who's helping you, I'll be sure to..."]
[#4682b4 "Xanthos p-p-please...no violence w-w-while in m-my cave...you know I-I-I don't allow it."]
Yeseo had appeared, moving in front of Xanthos. Her tail snaked around, wrapping around the larger male's own, who in turned seemed to calm down, if only slightly. His hard, yellow eyes remained glaring at Jay. However, Xanthos was completely reluctant to move or say another word with Yeseo now standing between him and the boy.
The draconic male finally gave a snort, smoke escaping from the exposed part of his jaw. Xanthos did back down, taking a place on a wooden chair at the massive table.
Yeseo watched, feeling her tail unwind from Xanthos', then turned her attention back to Jay. She gave her head a slight bow, then straightening again.
[#4682b4 "P-please forgive him, as w-w-well as my own. I-I-I should've remembered y-y-you wouldn't expect to s-see our human forms. As for w-where you are, w-w-well, my home, part of i-it anyways..."]
Yeseo approached the boy, despite the attempt of him being intimidating. Instead, she laid what appeared to be several seeds nearby.
[#4682b4 "If y-you are in any p-pain, chew those s-s-seeds. They should d-d-dull any pain you have."]
She then moved over to where Rhea laid, tail trailing behind her. Yeseo's hands moved, lightly running across the other female's body. Her eyes glowed every so slightly, pupils narrowing. Her tail suddenly snaked behind her, wrapping around a clay jar, then bringing it round. Yeseo grabbed it, opening the cap.
Her eyes shifted to the makeshift bandages done by Jay. With a delicate hand, she removed the bandages. A sudden frown came to her face.
[#4682b4 "O-Oh...Xanthos...c-c-could you r-r-reach me something p-please...I would myself, b-b-but I do my work b-b-better in human form..."]
[K2D Jayfeather kept waking up and passing out constantly while he was slung over Xanthos's shoulder. He felt blood underneath his clothing just drying on his skin as he was still bleeding but only a little bit now before passing out once again. As both Xanthos and Yesso made their way back to their cave, the flowers and grass began to lean towards them as if they wanted them now instead of Jayfeather. Jayfeather had this aura about him and it felt lighter around him mostly but his aura actually drew grass or anything that was a plant towards the group.
Jayfeather slowly woke up on a cot a few minutes after he was placed there, his hazel eyes staring up at the ceiling of the cave. He slowly sat up, groaning as he did so and he was put in a medium amount of pain. At least the pain didn't overwhelm him as he sat there, staring at his hands for several moments as he still felt weak from giving Rhea his energy. He then looked over at Yesso and Xanthos with a surprised expression, not remembering being saved by humans but by a dragonelle instead.
Since he didn't really know these two humanoids in front of him, Jayfeather yanked at his virgo necklace with his pale hands as he stood up shakily from his cot. [#228B22 "Who are you and where are we?" ] He growled, trying to sound at least a bit intimidating with his silver weapons in his hands. He knew he had a small chance of escaping, even if he did leave Rhea here so all he could do was hope that either these people were nice and were actually hoping him or that they were weak. ]
[h3 [center Rhea - Yeseo & Xanthos]]
Yeseo continued to frown. As the dragonelle opened her muzzle, as if on cue, the sound of wings followed by a shimmer of light soon landed nearby.
[#b22222 "Damn't...there you are Yeseo."]
A humanoid had now appeared. A long tail trailed behind the male, though perhaps the most interesting, or disturbing, about him was that the jaw on half of his face was completely exposing bone. Yellow eyes glared at the two currently injured individuals, tail lashing one way, then the other.
[#b22222 "Fucking Hellwrens. Yeseo, return to your cave."]
The dragonelle's form suddenly shimmered, also taking a humanoid appearance. Her tail tucked between her legs, dwarfed by the other's size. Her grayish eyes looked upwards towards the male.
[#4682b4 "P-please Xanthos...I-I-I can't stand s-seeing anyone or a-anything hurt...you know this...p-p-please just help me g-get them to my cave...please..."] Yeseo looked at the one she called Xanthos, her eyes shining. Her tail remained tucked between her legs, submissive.
As for the male, he seemingly sighed, moving a hand, rubbing his forehead. He growled under his breath for several moments. As much as he disliked the small dragonelle being out and about, especially as of now with the likes of such enemies around, he knew Yeseo would indeed not leave Rhea or Jay laying there, especially considering their weak and battered conditions.
Xanthos grew quiet for a bit, then finally returned his hand to his pocket. His yellow eyes looked towards the dragonelle, softening ever so slightly, [#b22222 "Alright...fine...just promise me that if I help you get them back, you won't leave your cave less I'm around, got it?"]
A slight smile came to Yeseo's face as she suddenly hugged Xanthos, thanking him profusely. Feeling awkward, Xanthos stood still, allowing the gesture, until she finally removed herself, walking over to the unconscious pair. The small female's features became serious as her mind set to work.
As for Xanthos, he grunted a bit, reaching down without so much of a second thought, taking hold of Jayfeather, then tossing the boy over his shoulder. His eyes shifted back to Yeseo who was looking at Rhea.
[#b22222 "Need to get her in her human form? Sure she'll be easier to carry and work with that way. Also will fit in your cave."]
As if to answer him, Yeseo moved towards Rhea's head. With a tap and muttering something in a tongue she seemed to understand, did Rhea's form shimmer much like before, shrinking downwards. Now as Yeseo, she picked up Rhea's form, struggling slightly, which made the concerned Xanthos ask if he needed to carry Rhea as well. However, Yeseo insisted she could handle the weight just fine.
Time passed, as it usually does, and Yeseo with Xanthos made it back to her cave. Inside going down the other tunnel which led to a spacious cavern. It was here Rhea and Jay were brought.
They were each laid down on separate makeshift cots. The light from makeshift torches lined the walls. In the middle appeared to be a huge table, tools and instruments laid upon the surface. Along the walls, indents seemed to create make-shift shelves which held ingredients and other things that the small dragonelle used.
[#b22222 "So, they'll make it. Should put your mind at ease then."]
Yeseo sighed softly, her tail swaying one way, then the other, [#4682b4 "Yes...a-a-again...thank you Xanthos..."]
[K2D Jayfeather instantly turned towards the other dragonelle that had appeared through the brushes, his face holding a guarded expression until he heard the name. He had his hand on Rhea's muzzle as he listened to Yesso as she introduced herself. He was secretly giving Rhea his energy, giving her almost enough to literally kill himself as his heart began to go faint. [#228B22 "Help... Rhea..." ] He gently groaned to Yesso as the dragonelle looked over both him and the other dragonelle.
He then just passed out, falling backwards as his back hit the ground with a loud thud. He was bleeding a small amount from his scratches but the main problem was how many scratches he had on him underneath his torn clothes. His body was limp and light, a lot more lighter than it was supposed to be as he was laid out right besides Rhea. He felt like he had done something right, feeling like Rhea had a better chance of surviving than he himself did now. He had at least a broken rib as well just from the impact of landing in Rhea's paw and then into the brush. ]
[h3 [center Rhea]]
It was all a haze. The dragonelle's eyes were closed, the world around her sounding muffled. She thought she heard a yell, more so one of anger, but she couldn't be sure. Relief was felt as the creatures removed themselves from her, to only find their demise to the boy's hands.
Her nostrils flared in a sluggish manner. Her body sprawled out on it's side. Rhea's breathing was shallow, heart thumping loudly and rapidly, working to try and get the blood flowing. Though it appeared to be having a difficult time, since a good portion of said blood was gone now.
One of Rhea's eyes slowly opened, hearing a weak voice. At first it was hard to understand, but the words seemed to click. The once bright yellow glow of her eye had dulled to barely an ember, the pupil round. Her leg twitched, but that was about the only movement she was able to make.
Jay had asked her a question, but she felt too weak to reply. Instead, her eye slowly closed again in response to the boy's question.
A soft rustle sounded nearby, followed by a scaly, grey horned head; a much smaller dragonelle. A sudden frown appeared on the beast's muzzle as she looked at the scene before her.
[#4682b4 "Oh n-n-no..."]
The dragonelle did finally crawl out of the cover, revealing how small she was, very clearly a runt of her clutch when younger. Either way, the creature trotted over, not at all bothered by the presence of the human. She seemed more so worried about the wounds on both Jay and Rhea.
Her long slender neck snaked downwards, looking over both, the frown remaining on her muzzle, [#4682b4 "U-Um...s-sorry for me j-just suddenly appearing...I-I-I was looking for herbs when I h-heard the screeching...I'm Y-Yeseo b-by the w-w-way..."]
[K2D Jayfeather flailed in the air until his hazel eyes finally caught sight of Rhea and her huge claws coming towards him. He slammed into Rhea's paws as she closed her claws around him to protect him and he let out a wheeze as his air was knocked out of him. He felt Rhea dip down now, his brain going at hyper speed as he figured out what was happening before Rhea opened her claws and he just simply dropped. He ended up landing in some brush, his vision going blurry as he slammed into thorns and the heavy branches of the brush.
[i [#98FB98 'Rhea.' ]] He thought suddenly through his pain and panic, calming himself down to find the dragon. He felt connected to her even though they had both just met and they were on bad terms. He had lost both of his sickles but his virgo pendant was back on it's leather chain, which meant that he had his sickles back. He slowly but surely dragged himself out of the thorny brush and used a tree to stand up, feeling several little scratches all over his body. His clothes were torn and a forest green colored liquid ran out of the tears in his clothes and skin.
He began to limp to where he saw Rhea fall to and he grunted in pain as he forced himself to start running, more forest green blood coming out of his body. The grass and flowers that he passed reached out towards him as if they wanted Jayfeather to join them but the teenager ignored them, still going onward. He eventually came to the furrow and he gave out a yell of anger as he saw the creature's feeding on the underside of Rhea and he jumped into the furrow as the creature's unlatched from Rhea to turn to him.
He let out a growl of hatred and pure anger, his hand grabbing at his virgo symbol as it turned into his double sickles. He let out a battle yell and ran forwards, both the creature's rushing at him at the same time. He slashed at one using both of his sickles, easily mutilating the creature before turning to the last one. He threw his sickles down and raised his hand in rage, his anger turning into magic as vines shot up from the ground and wrapped around the creature, easily yanking it down into the ground to let it suffocate.
Jayfeather finally calmed down, a small river of forest green blood running from his nose as well as his scratches from earlier. He shook his head and limped over to Rhea, looking at the spots where the creature's had been feeding on her. He flinched a bit but put his hand on her stomach, pieces of grass coming together to make make-shift bandages over the spots. He then sighed in relief, his brain and body both exhausted but he took a tired step back, [#228B22 "Rhea? Are you okay?" ] He asked, limping over to the dragonelle's head. ]
[h3 [center Rhea]]
Her body continued to thrash wildly as her claws struck air. Though the high-pitch screeching started to quiet down, to only be replaced by a human scream; Jay's.
The few remaining creatures scattered, screeching as they went. However a few sneaky ones were currently still attached to Rhea, their fangs draining the blood from her body. Despite knowing the urgency of getting rid of the blood-sucking parasites, she knew very well the human had little to no chance of surviving the fall which she herself could survive.
The dragonelle heaved her wings, dropping quickly after the boy. Spikes once again appeared all over her back, arms, and tail. Rhea's body jerked a bit, feeling weak and tired. Though she continued to push herself towards him. With a final strain of her wings, Rhea was soon next to Jay. Without so much of a second thought, the dragonelle grabbed him in her massive paws, creating a shield around him.
Rhea's wings struggled to open again, the few creatures still clinging to her underbelly. Like most dragons, not just her breed, their underside was vulnerable and softer than the rest of their body, and unfortunately unlike the rest of her body, Rhea could not grow her spikes along her stomach and underside.
She felt herself fall lower and lower, claws barely brushing the treetops. Rhea snorted softly, shaking her horned head, once again her vision starting blur from loss of blood. She saw the appearance of a bush, that would have to do. As the dragonelle passed over, her claws opened, dropping Jay into the brush. Hey, it was a softer landing than what could've been his death.
As for herself, Rhea's landing wasn't the most graceful. Her body took a dive, sliding along the earth, creating a deep furrow which soon led to where she laid. Attached to her stomach, were two of the creatures, gorging themselves. The smaller creatures would most likely continue their feast until stopped, and poor Rhea was in no condition to even try and shake the parasitic beasts off...
[K2D Jayfeather was just holding onto Rhea when she took off, trying not to fly off of her back. He seemed scared but after a while, he got over it and he took a deep breath of relief. It was when he was in the air on the back of the dragon is when he hit a problem, he felt nauseous the whole time as he looked around at the area around him.
When the screeches started, he let out his own scream of horror, suddenly looking around at the creature's around him. He took off his bag and barely had enough time to grab a potion that was the color of a raspberry. He then watched as the bag flew into the air and he cursed. [#228B22 "Fuck, I needed that." ] He said, uncorking the potion and downing it in three seconds. It was a potion of pride and courage, it'd help him get over his current fear.
He stood up on Rhea's back, barely keeping his balance before pulling on his pendant and they became his sickles. He let out a growl and began to slash at the creature's around them, luckily killing a few of the flying creatures. After a few seconds, he had killed most of them before one just slammed into him, sending him flying off of Rhea's back. He began to fall down, screaming and crying as he flared around. ]
