23. Beauty of the Sea


I woke up early in the morning, rolling over onto Emma's side of the bed. "Hey!" Romnly yelled as I rolled over on her. 

"Ehhhhhhhh." I mumbled. Two weeks had passed, and Romnly would not leave my side. She complained about being hungry, but not wanting to leave me to go hunting. She went into my mind and yelled at me. 

/Get off me!/ she yelled, I mumbled again. 

/Why?/ I asked wrapping my arms around her blue scaly body. Her tail poked me in my side and I winced. 

/At least get up and take a bath or something that I like to do./ I moaned. 

/Fine./ I said getting up. I was shirtless with sleep pants, and Romnly wrapped her tiny body around my torso. I grabbed some clothes and then went down the 11 flights to the wash room. When we got there, Romnly dove into the water, making it splash up on me. I took off pants and dove in after her, swimming to the deep end. I sat under the water for a long time before I rose to the surface and got some soap and started to wash myself. 

"Patten?" I heard someone yell. 

"Yes?" It didn't sound like Romnly, but who else could it be? "Romnly is that you." and then I got slapped. 

"Who is Romnly?! Are you cheating on me?" And then I saw a woman with paler than pale skin and the blackest hair ever. 

"Who are you?" I asked looking her up and down, she was in a bra and underwear. 

"Ugh! Curse that stupid woman! It's me Emma." She said, then slapped me again. "Now who is Romnly?" I was stunned. 

"Is it really you Emma?" She rolled her eyes. 

"Of course it's me, who else would know where the wash room is?" She asked. I wrapped my arms around her and hugged her, burring my head in her neck. 

/Who is this?/ Romnly asked. 

"This is my wife, Romnly." I said aloud looking back at the water. Romnly pounced out of the water and onto my back. Emma didn't seem fazed at all, she just smiled at Romnly. 

"Hello!" Romnly chirped. Emma patted her head, kissing my cheek. 

"Hi." She said, than she kissed me. "I should have guessed you bonded with a dragon, I mean with the dragon mark on your side and all." She said, and thats when I saw the dragon scaring mark on her shoulder, along with black vanes and a real scar where the black vanes start. I gasped. 

"Your bonded with a dragon too?" I asked astonished. "Where is she?" 

"It's a he, and I don't think Maulduen could fit in the washroom, let alone the castle." She laughed, jumping into the water, I followed her, splashing her with water. 

"When do I get to meet him?" I asked. 

"Later. And I think he is excited to meet you too." She paused washing her black hair. "So where is Tomi?" Emma asked. I exhaled fast ducking under the water. "Patten?" She asked pulling me up out of the water. 

"Woah, how are you that strong?" I asked.

"Don't change the subject. Now where is Tomi?" she asked sternly. 

"She sorta got... uh, captured by... uh assassins?" I said slurring my words to make it sound like a question. Emma slapped me for the third time. "OW! WHAT MADE YOU SO STRONG?" 

"Being bonded with a dragon did... AND YOU LET ASSASISNS CAPTURE MY BEST FRIEND!!!!!?" she yelled. 

"Oh, this can't be good." Romnly commented. Emma patted her head and smiled. 

"Thank you Romnly..." And then she turned her attention back to me. "DO YOU KNOW HERE SHE IS AT?" She yelled at me. 

"No, I don't.... But Romnly, we think can tell where she is at. And maybe it wasn't assassins maybe she just went with friends." I said. 

"Don't throw this on Romnly, she did nothing here. I am glad you two think that she can find Tomi, but are you sure?" Romnly nodded her little head. 

"I think so." She answered her voice a high trill. 

"Than you will come with me and Maulduen to find her. And you Mr, will stay here and wait for us." Emma smiled a wicked smile and walked out of the wash pool with Romnly on her tail. When Romnly got out of the pool she turned to look at me and stuck out her tongue, then followed Emma out of the room. I fell into the water and swam into the deep end and just sat there underwater. Some protector she is. 



OR not..... "DRAGON!" yelled Maggot running for cover. I quickly ran to my room and grabbed my weapon and ran back on deck to see a humongous black dragon circling the ship. I ran over to Lanna, who was crouched under a table, took her hand and led her to the stairs. 

"Stay below deck!" I yelled over all the noises, she nodded. I turned back to the dragon, who lowered one large wing to the deck. A woman with pitch black hair and the palest skin on the planet slid down the wing, a white sword in hand - crap.  

John and Hutch were yelling orders to everyone - I ignored them going straight toward the woman. "Tomi!" the woman yelled. 

"Who are you? And how do you know my name?" I asked holding my weapon at a ready position behind my arm. 

"I and Emma." The woman said.  

"Sure you are." I paused. "I don't believe you." 

"UGH! Stupid arrow with poison!" The woman sheathed her sword "I was shot by an arrow with poison - it did this to me." I looked into her eyes, they were hazel, like Emma... I shook my head - this can't be happening. 

"Emma..." The woman smiled, I shook my head again. "Come here." I said dropping my weapon. The woman ran to me with inhuman speed - and right as she was about to hug me I judo flipped her. The dragon growled and a piercing pain shot through my head making me fall to the ground. 

"Maulduen! Stop!" The woman yelled. The pain subsided to a dull throb. "Just show her..." and then my mind was filled with pictures - a memory - she was Emma, everything she said was true. Down to the part about the poisoned arrow. The memories vanished and I could see emma again. 

"Emma, it is you!" I yelled pulling her into my arms. 

"Okay, would you kindly tell us what is going on?" Captain asked, I nodded. 

"Captain, this is High Queen Emma, my best friend." I smiled at all the confused and shocked looks coming from the crew. Hutch stood behind John, a sly smile on his face. 

"Gentlemen." Emma said, and one by one the entire crew bowed down on there knees, even John and Hutch. "Rise." everyone stood. "And may  introduce my protector and Dragon, Maulduen." The dragon roared loudly, making the ship shake, I waved at the dragon. 

/Hello Tomi/ a deep voice said in my head, and I assumed it was the dragon. 

"So how did you find me?" 

"Thats a long story - and we gotta go." Emma said looking over at Maulduen. 

"Why?" I asked. 

"Well - Maulduen just got word that Holter found Melanie...." She said worriedly, John stepped forward. 

"Where would you like us to go Your Majesty?" Emma laughed. 

"I want you guys to go nowhere - I'm taking Tomi." Emma took my hand and started to pull me toward Maulduen's lowered wing, I resisted. 

"We need to go to shore anyway - so I'll meet you there - I ant to have time to say goodbye to some of my friends." I said looking at Hutch.

"Fine, but if you aren't at the town in five days, not even Aslan can save your ship." and then she turned to the wing and ran up it inhumanly. We watched as Maulduen flew away, then John walked toward me, followed by Hutch, who was still smiling. 

"What just happened here?" John asked pointing to the dragon. 

"Well, uh, my best friend found me after bonding? - with a dragon. And now we must go to town or else you will all die." I said a sly smile on my lips. John turned around to face the crew and started yelling instructions. The ship turned into a frenzy on motion. I went to the stairs and found Lanna, giving her a hug. "I'm sorry for not talking to you sooner." 

"It's okay. Th'nk you for getten me to safety." 

"No problem." we walked back on deck and started to help wherever we could. Time went by slowly, and Finally it was time to train with Hutch. "See ya later Lanna! I gotta go train!" I ran off to my cabin, grabbed my weapon and ran to the training area where Hutch was waiting sitting on a target. "Hey-ya!" I said smiling. 

"Hello Tomi." he stood up holding his weapon at ready. He lunged at me and we started to spar taking turns blocking and throwing hits. I hadn't worked this hard for a while, but I was still staying with him, never slowing. After a while I began to tire, along with Hutch, and now it was down to who would quit first. Unlucky enough for Hutch, I am stubborn and refused to quit. 

"Okay, I do believe that neither of us is going to quit anytime soon, so..." and then he took my hand in his, spun me around like a dance and back to him, my back to his chest. Then he took his weapon and used it to hold me to him. 

"Hey!" I yelled trying to get free. He let go of me and walked to sit on the target again. "Ugh, what was that for?" 

"Neither of us was going to stop, so why not sop in style?" I sighed and picked up my weapon. "I saw you do some new moves."

"Yeah, this last week I had a lot of free time, and I perfected the moves you gave me. So I made new ones." Hutch laughed. 

"Well they are good moves - I had a hard time blocking them." I smiled. 

"Yay!" I yelled. fist bumping the air, Hutch continued to laugh at me. 

"Okay, go get washed up - dinner is soon." I did as he said and got into some other clothes Hutch gave me. I walked to dinner in silence, everyone was already eating when I entered the room. I sat down next to Lanna, wrapping my arm around her. 

"Hey!" I said starting to pile my plate with food. 

"Hi!" She said hugging me back. Did you hear 'bout Hutch be'ng offered to 'be captain?" I nodded. 

"Yes I heard, what do you think about it?" 

"I'm excited for him!" she aid taking a bite from her food. "'N you? What do you th'nk?" she asked. 

"Same, same! He would make an awesome captain." I started to eat my food. John came like 20 minutes later and sat down next to Hutch. He didn't talk to anyone, not even Hutch, which was strong. But I didn't have the time to think about it because the men were moving the tables and chairs to make room for dancing. Never in Oklahoma or here has there ever been a dance quite like this. Hutch and Lanna danced mostly with each other - no coincidence there, and some of the crew members brought out many different instruments - some I hadn't even herd of. I was offered to dance by many men, which I refused saying that I wasn't a good dancer. 

Lanna soon got turned and went to bed leaving the party. Hutch came over to sit next to me. "Enjoying the dance?" he asked. 

"Yeah, I guess - I might enjoy it more if I was a better dancer." I laughed and Hutch bace me a scrutinized look. "Hey! It's true!" I defended. 

"Sure it is." He laughed, "Next dance your dancing with me." 

"Uh no."

"Uh yes. And I'm not going to let you refuse." I sighed and gave in, letting him leave me out onto the dance floor. And of course my luck ran out and a slow song came on - eh. I tried to walk away, but Hutch wouldn't let me go four steps in direction of the seats. So I put my arms around his neck, and he put his hands around my waist and we began to dance. "I would have liked if you wore a dress to this dance..." 

"Like I had known there was going to be a dance." I said pulling his shaggy hair. 

"Ow!"he said a  smile on his face. One of his hands moved up my back and pulled my hair. 

"Ow!" I yelled stepping on his foot, he made a cringing face but didn't say anything. The song ended, but we kept dancing. Another, faster song started to play, but we kept the same slow pace. I wanted to kiss him, hug him, be with him, but I knew I shouldn't have those feelings. He is Lanna's boyfriend, not mine. I set my forehead against his chest, then pushed myself away from him. I walked up the stairs and across the deck toward my room.

"Wait!" Hutch yelled running up the stairs - I turned to face him. "Wait!" he yelled again. 

"What?" I asked running a hand through my hair. 

"What did I do? Why did you just run off?" He asked stopping a few steps away from me. I shook my head. 

"You did nothing." I said, turning to walk away. Hutch grabbed my arm and forced me to look at him. 

"I don't believe that." He said sternly -"Tell me Tomi" I tried to get away, shaking my head. 

"Just let me go... Please." I said, and Hutch let go of my arm - I walked quickly to my room and got ready for bed in silence. Gracie and Finel both tried to get me to talk, and I refused even to look at them. 

The days went by fast. I hung out with Lanna most of the time, unless Hutch was there, then I would go train. Hutch and I still sparred every day, but we didn't speak. And finally the fifth day - the town was in sights and I continued to hug Lanna every chance I got, not saying goodbye right until Hutch as going to take me to the shore. We got into the boat, all four of us, and went to town in silence. Maulduen and Emma were waiting on the beach and she picked up Gracie and ran her up Maulduen's wing, then ran back down and took Finel up. I turned to Hutch.  

"Well I guess this is good bye." 

"I said no." He said cutting me off, a small smile on his lips. 

"Wait... Why?" I asked puzzled. "You could have had your own ship, started a family with Lanna." He shook his head. 

"You really don't know do you?" I shook my head. "My heart is somewhere else... it belongs to someone else." he took a few steps toward me, his clothes flapping in the wind. I shook my head, knowing this couldn't be happening, but it was. He closed the distance between us, holding me in his arms. Man, he was so much taller than me, I shook my head again, burring my head in his chest. "What?" I laughed looking up at him, his eyes were stern - worried. 

​"Nothing... I just don't believe that this is happening." His two different colored eyes softened. 

"You don't know how long I've wanted to do this." He turned serious again, leaned down and kissed me. Wind blew around us, making my cape blow wildly. We broke the kiss a while later. Our foreheads still connected. 

"Don't go." I said, "Come with me. To the palace...." Hutch laughed a little. 

"You know I can't do that." he said I frowned. 

"Why not?" 

"The sea is my home. And besides, there isn't any room for me on that ginormous dragon." I tried to smile, it didn't work. 

"The dragon is bigger than an apartment! There's plenty of room!" But I knew that as hard as I tried, I would not persuade him otherwise. 

"I must go The crew is waiting for me." he said leaning down to kiss me. His voice said he was going to go, his actions said another. But sadly he broke the kiss and maneuvered out of my arms, turning to face the sea. I looked at him for a while, he looked back a sad smile on his face, then got into the boat and went off to sea. The beauty of the sea didn't compare with what I saw when I looked into his eyes, and now I lost them. I turned around, picked up my weapon, and walked to Emma. 

/Are you alight Little one?/ Maulduen asked lowering his head - which was bigger than a bus. I nodded. 

"Ugh! That boy is an idiot!" Emma exclaimed hugging me. "he says he loves you, then runs off!" She picked me up in a swift motion scaring me, and swong me on her back. Maulduen's large black wing stretched out to the ground, and Emma ran to the end of it and up the wing an up it faster than I thought possible for a human to run. She sat me down behind a spike that was bigger than a tree, then walked around it and me with a large road, tying me to the smooth spike. 

"What's this for?" I asked. 

"So you don't fall off." Emma said in short. And then like that, Maulduen flapped his massive wings twice and we rose off the ground. Maulduen flew very steep making me "fall" into the rope, which was straining to keep me connected to the spike. My hands were getting sweaty and my weapon flew out of my hands - I screamed reaching for it. 

"Emma!" I yelled. 

"Yes?" she asked walking in front of me. 

"My weapon!" I continued to try to get free. Emma looked at the falling weapon. 

"On it!" and then she jumped off Maulduen and started to fall - I screamed her name, but she wasn't exactly falling. Emma was riding the wind! She reached my weapon the started rising back up to me, a smile on her face. 

"How?" I asked.

"A gift? - from Maulduen. He can control the wind." a gust of wind tickled my nose and rustled my hair. Maulduen leveled out above the clouds, and Emma untied me. 

"Thanks." I said hugging her again, and we continued to fly in silence.
