Lucius magically dried himself as I closed the door. Happy to see a friend, I hug him. He hugs me back then pushes me away. We exchanged a few words then went to our separate beds. He slept in the guest bedroom.
I woke in the morning to the smells of bacon and coffee along with the sound of light rain. Slipping out of bed, I pull a bathrobe around me and slide my feet into slippers. I look in on the twins as I head for the kitchen. The dogs greet me in the front room and we have a moment of good morning scratches and kisses. As I walk into the kitchen, Lucius looks up and smiles.
”Good morning.” He says cheerfully and moves over to the coffee maker. He pours a cup and adds cream and sugar.
”Good morning,” I say s he hands me the cup. I take a deep smell of the concoction then sip. “Mmmm, thank you. This is good.” I wrap my hands around the cup.
”You’re welcome. Would you like some breakfast?”
My stomach growls before I can answer.
”I’ll take that as a yes.” He says then gets me a plate of food.
We eat at the kitchen table and he tells me about how he got my message and the story of his flight in the storm. “Did you have a guest yesterday?” He asks.
”Yes, how did you know?”
“I smell him. Who was it?”
I tell him about Ronan.
Elsewhere, Ronan has been over taken by the storm and has had to take shelter. Finding an abandoned cabin, he uses it to get out of the storm.
In a distant mountain, Galen and others sleep in their cave chambers. For the first time in months, he connects in his dream with Myelle but is surprised by Ronan.
Myelle being pulled from the dream doesn’t phase either male. Their battle continues until Galen manages to pin Ronan and get his mouth over his throat. Not wanting to die, Ronan surrenders and the dream ends there for both of them.
Galen wakes and looks around for the umpteenth time as he still wonders where he is. He can’t remember how he got there but he does know one thing is for certain. If he can’t get out of the chains that hold him, he isn’t leaving.
Unsure of how long he had been there, he fully woke expecting to find his head down on the kitchen table. Instead, he was on a cot in a cave. He tried to take his new dragon form but has been unable to. “Must be this ring around my neck” he surmised as it is the only new thing he is wearing. His wandering and escape attempts have gotten him chained to a wall in his sleeping chamber and he has had time to think about his life.
He misses Myelle and the boys as well as his other loved ones.
”I need to get out of here.” He quietly says to himself.
“You have a roommate “ a man says as he leads a dragon in and secures his chain to the opposite wall and leaves.
The dragon and Galen size each other up for a moment before either speaks.
Lucius is concerned about Ronan “I need to go find out if he is really around to help or not.”
“Where are you going?” I ask.
”To mount Olympus. I need to ask the gods who may have sent him about Ronan and his task. I will be back as soon as I can.”
”I will.” He heads out the door and into the yard before shifting into his dragon form and taking off.
Ronan’s morning starts later than he expected but soon he is back on the trail, he hopes, of where Galen went. He is flying towards a mountain range in the distance.
Galen is the first to speak. “Hello. Welcome to my lair. My name is Galen; who are you?”
”I am Draco. Where are we?”
”I am not sure. To state the obvious, we are deep inside of a mountain somewhere. Do you have any memory of how you got here?”
”No, do you?”
”No. what is the last thing you remember before waking here?”
”I was with my mate. We were resting, sunning ourselves when suddenly all went black. I woke in another chamber with a fuzzy head. What is your story?”
”I was having breakfast with my mate and listening to our children play when the same thing happened to me. I woke here fuzzy and disoriented. I have tried exploring and finding my way out but to no avail; thus the chains.”
A thoughtful look in his eyes, Draco says “I miss my mate. She is a beautiful and glorious queen. What I would do to just be with her again. I too have attempted to leave.” Looking directly at Galen, “tell me about your family.”
”I miss them very much. I need to get back to them. My mate, Myelle is a lovely human elf hybrid. She is kind, sweet, and a great mother. We have twin boys. They are several months old now. Do you have offspring.”
”We do and soon there will be more. I want to be there for her clutching and the hatching of our young.”
”Then, my new friend, we need to work together and get out of here.”
