The Shifting Sands

It's a desert, full of desert-y stuff. Long lost ruins, nomads, monsters and loads and loads of sand. Come on, you guys all saw Indiana Jones right?

-----

And 'lo do Elyea and her sidekick find themselves slap bang in the middle of all aforementioned sand. Elyea looks around, shielding her eyes from the sun with her hands.

"I know I said I wanted the opposite..."
Metakirb

Sorry, I didn't mean to bring us here.
Who

She shrugs, beginning to walk up a nearby sand dune.

"No problem, can you take us back?"
Metakirb

If we can find some shade.

She follows Elyea.
Who

From the top of the dune it's just sand in every direction.

"We'll find some shade..."
Metakirb

Yeah...
Who

"Come on."

She starts walking down the dune, heading in no direction in particular.
Metakirb

And Ary follows.
Who

After some wandering Elyea stops, squinting.

"Can you see something over there?"

There might be something just off in the distance, course it could be a mirage.
Metakirb

I think so.
Who

Elyea begins to head towards it, breaking in to an outright run as she gets a clearer look at what they're running towards. It's an oasis!
Metakirb

Ary also runs, she's good at copying Elyea.
Who

Very very good it would seem. Elyea leaps in to the oasis, happy to cool off under the shade of a couple of trees.
Metakirb

Once again Ary mimics Elyea.
Who

"Told you I'd find us some shade!"

Elyea laughs, splashing at her friend.
Metakirb

Ary splashes back, nodding.
Who

"Is this enough shade for you to get us back?"

Elyea shudders as a large shadow moves over them for a split second before vanishing.
Metakirb

Ary nods, closes her eyes and starts focusing.
Who

"Hey, no rush."

Elyea clamber out of the water, laying herself on a flat rock to dry in the sun.
Metakirb

Really? But it's so hot...
Who

"Fine...just let me dry off first?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

Elyea lounges on the rock, actually rather enjoying the heat. Unfortunately good things can't last and that shadow makes another pass round. This time in the form of a large scaly beast! Swooping down and attempting to grab Ary in its large claws.
Metakirb

Well since Ary's watching Elyea she's not paying attention to much else and is grabbed, she does start struggling once she's grabbed though.
Who

The creature's claws hold strong, speeding up and flying higher in an effort to rob its captive of vital oxygen.

"Hey! Put her down! <SHAZAM!>"

A violent crack of thunder echoes through the surroundings, a bolt of lightning streaking through the sky and impacting on the dragon. It seems remarkably unphazed by this....damn.
Metakirb

Ary starts struggling for that very vital oxygen.
Who

The beast roars, speeding up and utterly stymieing Elyea's attempt to catch up with the damn thing. Looks like Ary's on her own for this one!
Metakirb

Well Ary's starting to run out of oxygen and starting to pass out.
Who

Well when she comes to she'll find herself out of the sun, lying on and surrounded by a pile of extravagant treasure.
Metakirb

She looks around.

Elyea?
Who

If Elyea's there she doesn't respond, all around her is sparkling gold and gemstone with a large carven door at one end, leading in to another room.
Metakirb

She gets up and heads to the door.
Who

As she approached the room a light begins to glow from it getting almost blinding as she reaches to the threshold. As it becomes almost too much it vanishes entirely, revealing a large blue scaled dragon.

"Ah, you're awake."
Metakirb

Ary instinctively reaches for her sword, which isn't there since she left it at home, instead she backs away from the dragon.
Who

The dragon moves forward, keeping the space between them the same.

"Don't be afraid. I don't mean you any harm your..."

He ponders for a second, not really sure what the proper term is.

"...worship."
Metakirb

Ary looks confused, still backing up.
Who

He moves his head, drawing attention to the gem attached to his horn.

"This gem detects divine spark. It was the prize possession of my greatgreat-grandfather."
Metakirb

But why did you bring me here?
Who

The dragon hangs its head slightly.

"Because I need your help."
Metakirb

You do? what with? Why would I be able to help A dragon?
Who

"I am the last of my line. It can not be allowed to happen."
Metakirb

I don't think I can help with that...
Who

The dragon is quickly replaced by a young man of roughly Ary's age, sporting a tail and a pair of wings.

"You'd be surprised."
Metakirb

Huh?
Who

The dragon begins to advance upon her.

"Are you sure you're a goddess? Then again, I guess I don't need you to be bright."
Metakirb

Hey! I'm not an idiot!
Who

The dragon attempts to close the space between them, trying to shove her on to the ground.
Metakirb

She's shoved, trying to quickly scramble to her feet.
Who

The dragon, is on her almost immediately, roaring.

"You will help me in siring a heir. With a half-god child those vermin will never dare strike at my family again!"
Metakirb

She tries to shove him away.

That's creepy! I mean... you're a dragon!
Who

She's shoved back, Ary's deific strength knocking him in to the air and on a heap on the floor. Quickly scrambling up and belching a stream of lightning at her.

"I will not allow my family to die!"
Metakirb

She roll outof the way of the lightning, just barely avoiding it.

I'm sure there're better ways than this!
Who

He snarls, flapping his wings as he charges towards her again at breakneck speed.
Metakirb

She tries to make a run for the door.
Who

Ary's fast but not fast enough to outrun the speeding dragon, tackling her to the ground.
Metakirb

She tries punching this time.
Who

Ary's punch connects squarely with the dragon's head, once again sending him flying off her and squarely in to a wall. He doesn't move, lying crumpled against it.
Metakirb

She runs over to him, feeling really bad.

Are you okay?
Who

He doesn't respond, looking at her with half lidded eyes, blood trickling from his skull.
Metakirb

She closes her eyes and focuses on trying to heal him.
Who

I'm sure that's not beyond the reach of her powers. Though he still looks a little woozy.

"You...helped me?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

He groans, clutching his head.

"Why?"
Metakirb

Because you don't want me dead, or seem to even want me hurt.
Who

There's the sound of commotion coming from another room. Elyea rushing through.

"I found them!"
Metakirb

Elyea! I'm in here.
Who

Elyea tries to pull Ary away from the dragon as the source of the commotion floods in to the room, a mob of armed men with scimitars.

"He's cornered now!"
Metakirb

Ary tries to stand between the dragon and the armed men.

Stop.
Who

"Ary, get out of the way."
Metakirb

No.
Who

"He's a monster! He kidnapped you!"

The mob begins to move forward, trying to push passed Ary.
Metakirb

He's not a monster! Just leave him alone.

She's not likely to let the mob past her.
Who

"Yes he is! I saw him, he's big and scaly and he kidnapped you!"

The mob tries to force its way passed wanting to shove her out of the way.
Metakirb

Ary tries to shove the mob back.

He had a reason. It wasn't the best and it was kinda creepy, but he never wanted to hurt me.
Who

"Ary don't make me make you get out of the way.!

They're pushed back, genuinely surprised by Ary's show of strength.
Metakirb

Elyea...
Who

<Move!>
Metakirb

She isn't moved.

Leave him alone. Right now.
Who

The mob doesn't seem convinced, making another attempt to surge forward round her.
Metakirb

She sends a shockwave at them, trying to knock them back.
Who

That does the trick, they scatter back from whence they came. Elyea stepping back a little in shock.
Metakirb

Just leave him alone.
Who

"Come on Ary, we're getting out of here."
Metakirb

Yeah...
Who

"This enough shade for you to get us gone?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

Elyea leans against the wall, waiting for Ary to make with the magic.
Metakirb

Ary closes her eyes and starts focusing.
Who

The dragon manages to pull himself to his feet as Ary focuses.

"Wait...take me with you."
Metakirb

Huh?
Who

"I owe you my life, let me come with you."
Metakirb

I... um...
Who

"No way. No dragons in my house."
Metakirb

I can send you to my home, but i might not be back there for a while... or you could find somewhere to stay outside the castle?
Who

"I'll stay outside this castle."

"Fine by me, I could use some trebuchet practice."
Metakirb

Ary nods and starts focusing again.
Who

Neither of them is going to stop her.
Metakirb

And she ports them all.
Keledrath

Edsern appears in the middle of the desert.
Metakirb

And Endlox appears next to him.

A desert. I bet this brings back bad memories.
