The Thunder Of Kiwea

The dragons of Kiwea are thinning out and she is the last onyx dragon in her Thunder. Jinda, her mate, is the Lord of dragons and red as blood. She wants to find more like her, but she's rather restricted with her duties. Is she really alone in the world, or just the only one for a while?

I caught up to him within the hour, surprised at how fast he flew. I pushed myself harder and finally pulled abreast of him. He flicked his eyes towards me and then turned his head to stare. He noticed my struggle to keep up and slowed, allowing my muscles to stop straining so much. "What do you want, Fawn?" I looked ahead of me to the mountains in the distance. "Why do you call me Young One?" He smiled and tilted into a dive. "It seems fitting." He landed in a clearing in the forest beneath us and I spiraled down to land beside him. "Why?" I asked, my curiosity sparked even more than it had been before. "Because you are a beautiful young dragon." I nodded and relaxed my wings, spreading them out so that the muscles would un-bunch. He eyed me and then sat in front of me. "Where did you come from?" I asked, my voice calm even though I was ecstatic to find another Onyx dragon. His eyes found mine and he looked past me to the forest beyond. "Far away. I've been living in solitude since shortly after my parents were killed by some humans." I nodded and tore my gaze from his. "We have just declared peace with the humans." I felt his eyes upon me but didn't look up. "Have you seen what they've done to-" "Yes, I am fully aware of what they have done to us! That is exactly why it was war or peace. We chose peace because there are too few of us to go up against them. We couldn't sustain the fight." I looked up and he was directly in front of me, mere inches from my face. "What is your name?" I whispered. "You can call me Panther, Fawn." I knew he was saying he was the dominant over me and I felt my blood boil, smoke roiling out of my nostrils. I let my blood cool slowly, causing the mask of smoke to linger between us for quite a while. When it finally disappeared, he was lying down in front of me with his lids half-closed in amusement. "Fawn, I want to save our kind. We could be the last two for all we know. All I want is to save us." I was taken aback by his forwardness and stared at him in disbelief. I thought about Jinda and how he would handle this situation. Then, I took a path that wouldn't involve killing Panther. "I have Jinda. We will take our chances, for my love lies with him." He nodded slowly and got to his feet. He moved closer, coming within inches of my snout. I stood absolutely still and watched as his muscles stood at attention, his eyes black pools that I found myself lost in. He pounced on me and I growled, feeling him push me down into the ground. It was a test. I pushed myself to my feet and then flipped onto my back, crushing him under my weight. He groaned and pushed me off of him. I flared my wings and glided for a few seconds over to a bare patch of dirt before I turned and found him watching me. I crouched, spread my wings, and waited. He jumped at me and I took off into the sky, his claws missing my hide by only a few centimeters. He growled and took off after me, the sound of his wing-beats making my blood pump harder as I strove to fly faster. I felt something clip my tail and knew that he was very close behind. I smiled a feral smile, loving the feeling of this game even though I hadn't played it before. It was thrilling to have someone interested in mating, even though I had no intent to mate with Panther. It was a second before I realized that Panther was over me. My eyes went wide as he forced me to land, thwarting every escape route I tried to take. I growled as he landed just inches from me, turning to reveal a playful gleam in his eyes. "I'm quite impressive, eh?" He asked, his breaths mingling with mine a second before he shifted. I blinked and backed away, watching him closely. He was now a human, but he still smelled like a dragon. "You can do this, too. All Onyx dragons can. It's the stealth that dwells within our blood. We are the ultimate predators." I blinked again. "How?" I asked, nudging his squishy body. He pushed me away with surprising strength as he chuckled, a strange sound being as it was human and not dragon, more like a babbling brook than the stones on a mountainside she was used to. "I could teach you... If you'd like." He shifted again and was rubbing his snout along my neck, causing my scales to lift. "I would like to learn, but..." He nipped my neck gently and I let out a loud growl, a warning. "I have no interest in mating you." His eyes sparkled as he pulled back and grinned. "It won't stop me from trying, Fawn." I nodded. "Are you coming back with me?" He shook his head. "Meet me here at sunrise the day after tomorrow. We will begin then." I nodded once more and took off, angling toward home, where Jinda lay waiting.
