Christopher woke up as the sun was just coming up over the horizon and golden light was flooding through the windows. He let out a groan and stretched, running a hand through his curly blonde hair. This was the first night he didn't sleep on Luna's back or on the hard ground; it was blissful. This was also the first night he didn't have a dream about the dangerous move he pulled, helping a rogue dragon out of her cell. He moved side to side, relaxing his muscles. He was a scrawny boy but he knew he could hold his own in a fight. Luna was already up it seemed because food was laid out before him.
He smiled slightly as he took the food. She always made sure he got something to eat when she ate. She came into the house moments later,
"Christopher, you're awake. How did you sleep, hun?" She cooed to him. It wasn't very manly to let a dragon talk to him like he was a baby but he had grown used to it.
"Actually, the best rest I've had in days." He admitted. She had known of his dreams after he had woken her up with his shouts.
"Wonderful, maybe that means we have good days ahead of us." She added with a smile. Christopher swore Luna had the sweetest smile, like a moms. Though her teeth were sharp and deadly they formed to make a sweet, loving smile. He remembered one other person that could make a smile like that, Marie. He never really knew what they had growing up and he almost got up the courage to ask her out before they had to run.
"Christopher?" Luna asked him, a bit of annoyance crossed her face. "Did you hear me?"
"No, sorry Luna." He said to her, his face heating up slightly. He always spaced out in front of Luna. She always couldn't understand how a human could space out do much.
"I was saying that we may have a visitor soon. I have received word from one of my old friends that they will need our help for a little bit," Luna said to him. He nodded not thinking much of it. He had met other dragons that knew her before and was pretty accustomed to it. "What were you thinking about?"
"Marie, you think she's okay?" He asked her. She frowned and looked away from him.
"Christopher, normally I would say she will be fine, she's learned enough from her father but she's by the ocean. Most humans won't go there at night because of the dragons that live there. Few ever can ride them and if they do its as a baby. Other times the person is never the same mentally. I'm sorry Christopher," She said, putting a hand on his shoulder. Then a loud thud sounded outside and Luna looked outside. The dragon she mentioned was outside and was carrying a girl in his hands. Sweat beaded on her face and she was curled up into a ball.
As he entered and set the girl down Christopher's eyes grew wide as he got a look at her.
It was the girl he rescued from the dungeon.
