On Sunset Wings
« on: April 20, 2019, 05:23:23 AM »

A wild dragon appears!


Quiet.

Winter stillness over fields of milling livestock and the homes of their masters beyond. A normal stillness for Hayll in the early winter, a silence that lingers for a moment longer before quiet disjointed voices were drowned out under the screaming panic of animals. Screaming panic that drew their masters out to the fields, confusion in some, anger in others at the lack of an obvious threat.

Grumbles along the estates, farmers and stablehands alike turning to settle animals or return to their posts. Animals panicked at air if it blew loudly enough. Nothing to worry about, nothing to panic over even as the animals pranced and circled, bolting for freedom or tearing at stall doors.

Quiet, the humans insisted even as the night’s stillness was broken by animals reaching a fever pitch with no immediate sign of predator or threat across the district. Just the rising wind and rising animal fear.

A howl of wind loud enough to tear from the bordering mountains with a wail, the leathery snap of wings and a deep rumbling like thunder following the second gust of wind and powdery snow brought eyes skyward as a massive shadow crossed the full moon. Moonlight gleamed off violet scales, turned gold to silver and highlighted the gaping maw as the beast circled.

Disjointed voices to screams and screams to disembodied sobbing while the dragon descended into the field to catch livestock and human alike in its claws. Its kin had taken Dena Nehele now gleaming Hayll had lured a flying serpent of their own.

"Quiet!" she hissed from her position beneath the woman in her bed. Hair a wild and tangle mess around a head that cocked in an effort to hear. "Shut up," she hissed again and tugged the woman's hair to quiet her sounds, "Something is happening. Move." She shoved and the woman tumbled away, squealing with indignation. Anika glared behind her shoulder as she shoved herself from the bed and hurried to the window. Screams could be heard, screams and was that roaring? What in all that was holy was that? Dark golden eyes widened as she took in the sight.

A lesser woman might have screamed much like those on ground below but Anika was not lesser. Shoulders stiff and lips parted as the dragon - a godsbedamned dragon - roared to the ground. Brows shot straight into her hairline as she realized the creature held not just a beast of burden but a human in its grip. This was going to be bad. She already knew, her healer's sense told her so. She moved swiftly just as the dragon launched itself again and Anika ran for her closet. Tunic and pants jammed on her body, she moved with speed to her solid cabinet.

Potions and brews. She would need her potions and brews as much as her craft. Craft could drain and break her but potions and brews would do neither. Pockets filled with craft enhanced glass vials, Anika cringed as more screams sounded. "Get dressed and get out," she snarled at the woman who cowered like a dog in the corner. She hated when those who should be strong were not, "Sound whatever alarm you need to, foolish one and go!" She shoved the woman out the door and was moving after her on quick feet.

She needed to find someone. That foolish queen, Mariam. Mariam needed to be told, told to act and to rally. This was not her job and she sent a servant to do so. Talking to Mariam was never her strong suit, she never liked the chit when she first came here and still hated her even now. And Anika had a job to do and that was not to advise the queen.

Screams and shouts. Heat and smoke. These things met her as she burst from the hall.
