Oriana was stumbling through the forest, clutching at her stomach and crying. She looked very banged up, with a black eye, busted lip and swollen cheek. Her parents had gotten angry at her again, but this time it had been worse. They just kept hitting her… they wouldn't stop. She was bleeding but she didn't know from where, all she knew is her clothes were soaked. Probably from when her father threw a bottle at her. She remembered the sound of it shattering so clearly. She flinched at memory and then tripped and fell.
She collapsed in on herself and wrapped her arms around herself, trying to keep herself from shaking. Why wouldn't her tears stop? Why did she feel so hopeless? Why did her parents hate her? They seemed to like her sisters just fine. Maybe there was something wrong with her. She decided that was it. She tried looking up, but all of her energy left her and she collapsed into a laying position and went limp, unable to move as she stared at the starless sky. She thought she would at least like to see stars right before she died. She wondered where they had gone. If maybe even they had left her and thought she was a failure.
(I’mma have Kage find Oriana through Yomi)
Yomi, ventured deep into the enchanting forest. The sun's rays filtered through the dense canopy, casting dappled shadows on the forest floor. The air was alive with the chorus of chirping birds and the gentle rustling of leaves. The forest seemed to breathe with a vibrant energy, beckoning Yomi further into its mysterious depths.
As Yomi weaved her way through the maze of ancient trees, her curious eyes darted from one enchanting sight to another. She had always been drawn to the mysteries of the forest, its whispers and hidden secrets calling out to her in a voice only she could hear. Her slender wings, adorned with intricate patterns that resembled delicate brushstrokes, fluttered with anticipation as she explored every nook and cranny.
It was then during that exploration that Yomi's sharp eyes caught sight of a figure stumbling through the undergrowth. A child, battered and bruised, emerged from the shadows, her tear-streaked face a heartbreaking sight. Yomi, cautious yet compassionate, watched from the safety of the towering trees, her eyes filled with concern.
In another part of the forest, Yomi's lack of familiarity with Earth became apparent. Her master had been teaching her about this unfamiliar world, but the endless array of names and concepts overwhelmed her young mind. She struggled to grasp the essence of things, often reduced to marveling at the simplest of objects.
Yomi would gaze at a flower, utterly captivated by its vibrant colors and delicate petals, but she couldn't find the words to describe it. She would stumble upon a babbling brook, her eyes widening at the shimmering water, but the concept of a "stream" eluded her. Her master patiently guided her, teaching her the names of plants, animals, and even the stars in the night sky.
She tilted her head, studying Oriana's battered appearance, her eyes filled with a mixture of confusion and empathy.
With a soft whimper, Yomi emitted a series of low, trilling noises and questioning chirps, a language unique to her kind. Her head bobbed gently, her eyes never leaving Oriana's face. It was her way of expressing her curiosity, attempting to communicate her concern despite her limited understanding of human suffering. She longed to offer comfort, to make sense of the pain that surrounded her, but all she could do was observe and wonder, her childlike innocence shining through her eyes.
Yomi’s scales, a simple black hue, reflected the small shafts of light that pierced the overhead canopy. Her horns rose from the top of her head, tenderly curving outward by the day. The wings that adorned her back were quite large for her tiny size, elegantly shaped with long, pointed tips that allowed her to glide through the skies with effortless grace. They folded gently against her sides in a gesture of comfort and solace. And her eyes, bright and piercing, held a depth of wisdom and ancient knowledge that seemed to surpass her tender age. But now they seemed to hold a warmth and sympathy that almost mirrored the pain and longing within Oriana’s own gaze.
Oriana's vision was going blurry, and her mind felt cloudy. She made small whimpering noises every now and then, the pain almost becoming too much. She stared up at the empty sky, like an abyss of black coming to swallow her up. She wished it would come do it faster. Then she could go away and not feel pain. Just float. Forever. She was still crying and breathing was becoming harder. Why was she running again? Oh, yes. Her parents. Why did she need to move so desperately? The castle guards would come to find her soon. And bring her back. This made her flinch in fear and then cry out with pain.
She began thinking of other things as her life force bled out of her onto the forest floor. Like how soon the animals would smell it and she would become food. How this was the first time she had been outside the castle walls, and how beautiful everything was when it wasn't trimmed into perfect shapes. How nothing ever seemed to go right and she would never meet her parents age. How that nagging feeling in the back of her head telling her to go to sleep was becoming louder. But she needed to see the stars come out. She wanted them to be there.
She thought of all the people in the world as she stared up at that empty sky. How the people in the surrounding village of her kingdom probably never heard her cries. Probably never knew what happened behind the castle walls that never let secrets out. She marveled at how vast the world must be and was saddened by the fact she would never get to see many more sites than this one right here. She smiled and laughed. It was a short one that ended in a whimper. Maybe if she just closed her eyes for a moment…
Yomi's heart ached as she watched Oriana's condition deteriorate before her eyes. The child's pain was palpable, and Yomi's limited understanding of human suffering made it all the more frustrating. With a heavy heart, she knew that she couldn't stand idly by any longer.
In a flurry of movement, Yomi gracefully descended from her perch in the trees, her wings spreading wide to slow her descent. She landed softly beside Oriana, her presence almost ethereal. The young Yoru dragon gently nudged Oriana's trembling body with her snout, emitting a low, melodic purr that reverberated through the air.
Yomi's eyes, filled with a mixture of determination and compassion, locked onto Oriana's fading gaze. With a timid yet firm voice, she emitted a series of trilling noises. It was as if she was reassuring Oriana, promising her that she was not alone in this dark hour.
She carefully extended her wings, creating a protective canopy above Oriana, shielding her from the encroaching shadows (Yes, her wings are that large). The soft glow of Yomi's scales bathed Oriana in a soothing light, casting away the darkness that threatened to consume her.
In that moment, Yomi's childlike innocence fused with an ancient wisdom that seemed to emanate from the very depths of her being. She understood that she couldn't heal Oriana's wounds, but she could offer her solace and comfort, a gentle presence in a world that had been harsh and unkind.
With a tender touch, Yomi pressed her snout against Oriana's cheek, her eyes filled with unspoken understanding. She emitted a series of gentle, rhythmic purrs, a soothing melody that seemed to resonate with Oriana's soul. It was an embrace of warmth and acceptance, a gesture that spoke volumes without the need for words.
As Oriana's breathing grew shallow, Yomi's eyes filled with worry. She knew she couldn't bear the weight of Oriana's pain alone. With a sense of urgency, Yomi emitted a series of desperate chirps, her eyes scanning the forest, searching for any sign of help.
It was then that a figure emerged from the shadows, a tall and imposing figure clad in dark robes. Kage, Yomi's master, strode forward with a stern yet concerned expression. His eyes, similar to Yomi's, held an ancient wisdom that seemed to pierce through time itself.
His jet-black horns curved gracefully from his forehead, their glossy surface reflecting the moonlight with an otherworldly sheen. They seemed to possess an ethereal glow, pulsating with an inner energy that hinted at the immense power contained within. His sinuous tail, long and sleek, moved in tandem with his every step.
Ivory strands of hair cascaded around Kage's face, framing his features with a stark contrast. His eyes, a mesmerizing sight, were devoid of color - the whites as black as the night sky, while the irises shimmered with an ethereal white glow. They seemed to hold a depth of understanding and wisdom that transcended mortal comprehension.
Kage's attire reflected his enigmatic nature. He wore a loose, un-ironed white dress shirt that billowed gently in the forest breeze, hinting at a hidden vulnerability beneath his formidable exterior. His black dress pants clung to his form, accentuating his lean physique and the air of mystery that surrounded him.
With a calm yet commanding presence, Kage knelt beside Yomi and Oriana. His eyes traced the contours of the child's features, his gaze filled with a mixture of sympathy and intrigue. He reached out a hand, his fingers gently brushing against Oriana's cheek, feeling the warmth of her fragile skin. The demon's touch seemed to radiate a comforting energy, as if he possessed an otherworldly ability to understand the pain that lay within Oriana's soul.
Yomi, sensing the arrival of her master, slowly withdrew her wings, allowing Kage to take over the task of comforting Oriana. Kage's voice resonated with authority as he spoke, his words carrying a comforting reassurance. "Yomi, you have done well. Let me take it from here." With a gentle touch, Kage eased Yomi further back, cradling Oriana in his arms.
Kage spoke, his words laced with a genuine curiosity, "Never before have I seen such a young soul so bruised… what has happened to you…?" His tone, while tinged with authority, held a hint of compassion, as if he too had once stood at the precipice of despair. “Someone as young as you shouldn't be out in these woods…”
Her face lit up when she saw Yomi. She somehow knew her name. She giggled and winced as she tried to speak. “Y-yomi… you are very pretty… very pretty indeed. I am glad I get to see another pretty thing before I go.” She said as she shut her eyes for a minute and then pried them open again a second later, a look of determination flitting into her gaze.
She sat there as Yomi made her happy. She filled her with a contentment she had not felt before in her short life. A look of pure calm settled over her as she stared upward. Then she made a strange noise and someone emerged from the shadows. A look of pure terror filled her face. One that would make any heart drop. She tried moving but couldn't as she saw the person, her eyes going wide and the little color left in her face immediately drained.
“Don't take me back… please. I can't go. I can't, I can't!” She yelled, now in hysterics as she started crying again. She flinched away from his touch, barely. This one movement seemed to take infinite energy from her as he pulled her into his arms. And asked a question. It took her a minute to fully understand the words as her mind was beginning to become a bit more foggy.
“I- you- mommy didn't tell you?” She asked as she looked up at him, the terror still there. She didn't want to go back. But she couldn't move. Her eyes traced his face. He didn't look like a castle guard she's seen before, but mom could have hired someone. People from the village were easier to control.
“Don't take me back… please. I can't go. You don't understand. People never understand!” She yelled as adrenaline filled her and she began trying to sit up, small sounds of pain escaping her lips.
Kage's eyes softened as he listened to Oriana's pleas, his heart aching at the depth of her fear and desperation. He gently cradled her in his arms, his touch radiating a soothing warmth that seemed to envelop her fragile form.
"I am not here to take you back," Kage spoke with a calm yet firm voice, his words laced with sincerity. “I do not know where you are from, nor do I have any intention of returning you to a place where you feel unsafe.”
Kage's voice held a hint of curiosity as he continued, “You mentioned your mother. No, she did not tell me anything. I am not familiar with your world, but I can sense the pain and fear that surrounds you.”
He sighed. “If you feel comfortable doing so, perhaps you could help me understand…? I know I do not know you and you do not know me, but I’m rather curious considering the fact that you’re so young. The pain I sense from you is… concerning.”
(I’M SORRY IT’S SO SHORT, I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO WRITEEEEEE 💀💀💀💀💀💀💀)
She smiled, the terror melting away on one swift move as she hugged him around the waist as best she could. “Thank you.” She whispered as she leaned back again and looked up at him. “I can tell you…” She said as she glanced away for a moment and then went into a coughing fit. When she was finished, she sighed and looked back up at him. “You are very nice Kage. I sense great wisdom in you.” She said after a moment.
“I live in the nearby kingdom of Oralaina. You could say that's where my parents kind of got my name. Oriana. I was the first born child of the royals. Meant to inherit the kingdom. But I showed no magical abilities. This angered them. They said I couldn't protect the kingdom or even myself without them. I lost my place as the heir and my sisters younger twin who showed great magical abilities, inherited it. To show me that I couldn't protect myself, they began hitting me instead. Today was worse. They- they wouldn't stop. I begged for them to stop, but they kept doing it! They told me I shouldn't cry because I had no worth. No power. I don't know what I did wrong… maybe there is just something wrong with me…” She said as tears slowly ran down her face.
She looked over to Yomi and smiled. “Yomi was very nice. She comforted me. I'm happy I got to meet her.” She said as she studied the dragon for a moment before closing her eyes.
(Sorry for the shortness lol-)
As Oriana poured out her heart to Kage, the weight of her words hung heavy in the air. Kage listened intently, his gaze fixed on her, absorbing every detail of her story. His expression was a mixture of sadness and understanding, his eyes reflecting the pain and longing that resonated within Oriana's soul.
"Love," Kage began, his voice gentle yet filled with a sense of purpose, "there is nothing wrong with you. You are not defined by your magical abilities or lack thereof. Your worth is not determined by the expectations of others. You are a child, full of potential and untapped strength."
He continued, his eyes filled with a deep sadness. “I am sorry to hear of the cruelty you have endured at the hands of those who should have protected you. No child should ever experience such pain.”
He paused, allowing his words to sink in. “Your parents' actions, their cruelty, are not a reflection of who you are. It is a reflection of their own fears and insecurities. They have lost sight of what truly matters, blinded by their narrow perception of power.”
Yomi's heart swelled with joy as she heard Oriana's words. Her eyes shimmered with delight, and her wings fluttered with excitement. The affirmation from the young girl meant the world to her, validating the comfort and solace she had tried to offer.
With a soft trill of happiness, Yomi nestled closer to Oriana, her presence a warm embrace. She pressed her snout against Oriana's cheek, emitting a gentle purr that reverberated through the air. It was her way of conveying her gratitude and happiness.
She smiled, a beautiful smile. It lit up her features and her body began to glow. It enveloped her and soon she was healed. Her eyes widened in shock. “D-did you do that, Mr. Kage?” She asked as she shifted to look down at herself. She sat up, looking confused and then thought for a moment, chewing on her lip.
When Yomi pressed up against her she giggled and began rubbing her back. “Yes. Your actions are very much appreciated.” She said as she grinned at the dragon. She felt a lot better now that she was all healed. She stretched her limbs and sighed. At least now she could get away from the castle faster. She could never go back. A troubled look crossed her face as she wondered how she would get by.
She looked up at Kage, still waiting for an answer.
(I'm sorry it's so shortttt I'm trying to read an article XD)
Kage's eyes held a glimmer of ancient knowledge as he regarded Oriana's healed form. "No, my dear, it was not I who healed you," he replied, his voice filled with a sense of wonder. "Perhaps it was your own inner strength, your resilience, that brought about your healing. Sometimes, when we are faced with the darkest moments, our own light shines the brightest."
He remained silent for a moment, but before he could speak further, a sudden rustling in the bushes nearby shattered the tranquility of the moment. Kage's body tensed, his gaze fixated on the source of the disturbance. His instincts kicked in, and he held Oriana protectively in his arms, his entire being on high alert.
Kage's expression shifted from astonishment to a tense alertness as he froze, his senses heightened. Oriana looked up at him, her eyes filled with a mixture of curiosity and concern. Without a word, Kage gently placed Oriana on the ground, keeping a firm yet gentle grip on her hand.
And then, in a burst of motion, a figure emerged from the bushes, its movements quick and fluid. Kage's eyes widened as he recognized the intruder—a group of castle guards, their armor gleaming in the dappled moonlight. His heart sank, realizing that Oriana's worst fears were about to come true.
Time seemed to slow as Kage locked eyes with the lead guard, a stern and unyielding expression etched on his face. The guard's gaze flickered between Kage and Oriana, his hand instinctively reaching for the hilt of his sword. The forest seemed to hold its breath, the tension thickening with each passing second.
Kage's mind raced, weighing his options, searching for a way to protect Oriana from the impending danger. He knew that the castle guards would not hesitate to use force if necessary. His grip tightened around Oriana's hand, his protective instincts kicking into overdrive.
In that moment, Kage's instincts took over. He turned to Oriana, a flash of determination in his eyes. "Hold on tight, darling," he whispered, his voice filled with urgency. With a graceful yet powerful movement, he scooped Oriana back into his arms and took off in a burst of speed.
The chase had begun.
The forest blurred in a whirlwind of vibrant colors as Kage weaved through the ancient trees, his movements agile and precise. Oriana clung onto him tightly, her heart racing in sync with the thundering of footsteps behind them.
The guards, fueled by their duty and a sense of loyalty to the kingdom, pursued relentlessly. Their armor clanked with each step, their heavy breaths mingling with the rustling of leaves. The forest seemed to pulse with an electric energy, as if it too sensed the gravity of the chase.
As Kage raced through the forest, he deftly maneuvered through narrow gaps and leaped over fallen logs, his every movement calculated and deliberate. The forest seemed to bend and twist around him, aiding his escape.
Kage's senses were heightened, his every instinct honed to perfection. He could hear the guards' footsteps growing closer, their shouts echoing through the trees. But he refused to let them catch up, his determination burning brighter with each passing moment.
As Kage gained ground, his muscles strained with effort, his senses honed to perfection. With one hand tightly clutching Oriana, he summoned his latent demonic powers. His hand morphed into a set of razor-sharp talons, the obsidian claws gleaming with an otherworldly aura. With a swift motion, he used his newfound appendages to scale the towering trunk of a massive oak tree, his grip unyielding as he hoisted himself and Oriana up.
From their elevated vantage point, Kage stared down at the guards, his eyes ablaze with a menacing light. He emitted a series of chilling, demonic warning growls, his voice echoing through the forest, carrying a message that needed no translation.
(When he called her darling I was like omg yesss so wholesomeeee <3)
She smiled as she looked up at him. “Maybe. But it is not a dark moment anymore. Now I have met you, and that is a good thing. I'm glad I got to meet you, Mr. Kage.” She said ss she nodded.
Her stomach dropped when she heard the rustling. ‘No…’ She thought. But Kage didn't seem to want to give her to them, which gave her strength as she clung to him, not wanting to let go. She saw the guard. His name was Jacobsen. She didn't like him, he was mean. When he spoke to her, she nodded and held on tighter.
Before she knew what was happening, they were in a tree, and Kage did not seem happy at the guards below. He was growling a warning growl that made the soldiers pause, the color in their face draining. Oriana smiled as she looked down at them and hugged Kage. She was so thankful he was here to protect her.
The guards were pacing below. There was no way they were getting up there, and they knew it. “Could we cut the tree down?” One asked another but a couple shook their heads in unison. “Too dangerous. We could hurt the princess. I wouldn't mind hurting that prick though.” He said as he glanced up at the tree. “Why don't we bribe him? Everyone likes money. Even creepy demon things.” Another suggested. “Hm. Good idea. We can try that.”
“Hey! If you release the princess you will earn great money from the kingdom!" One called up, using his hands to make his voice louder.
Oriana stared down at them, amused. Why would they call him names and then offer him money? Is this how negotiations usually worked? She couldn't see the intelligence in it. She didn't believe Kage would go for it. She trusted him.
Kage's jaws clenched as a rare anger flared within him. With a contemptuous snarl, he stared down at the guards, his dark eyes flashing a dangerous light. Kage's posture straightened as he fixed the guards with an unwavering stare, his gaze piercing and menacing. His shoulders tensed and his talons flared out to their full length, making him appear formidable and intimidating.
“Your coins mean nothing to me. I have no interest in dirty gold peddled by the hands of tyrants,” he growled, his words dripping with disdain. "The child remains under my watch." His tail lashed from side to side slowly, displaying his warning.
Kage's aura pulsed with a menacing energy as he continued, his voice low and ominous. "Seek not to threaten me again, for I protect this child not for riches, but because no innocent soul deserves the cruelty she fled from."
Kage gently pulled Oriana closer, sheltering her within the veil of his own arm. His sharp talons dug fiercely into the bark, anchoring him to the tree.
As the guard persisted, Kage's voice dropped an octave, taking on an otherworldly echo. "Do not test my patience, mortal." His eyes flashed, an unnatural glow emanating from their depths. "The child comes to no harm while she is in my care."
Keeping one arm wrapped protectively around Oriana, Kage reached out his clawed hand toward the guard and clenched it into a formidable fist. His words carried the weight of an impending threat. “Leave now, while I still allow it.” The timbre of his voice resonated through the forest, filling the air with a sense of dread that was quite hard to ignore.
With that pronouncement, Kage turned away from the guards, signalling an end to the conversation. He kept Oriana close as he scanned the forest for an escape route, his protector instincts on high alert. Yet just as they prepared to leap away again, Kage felt a hand on his shoulder. Startled, he lashed around to see a guard precariously gripping a nearby branch.
Kage's body tensed as the guard's hand grasped his shoulder from behind. He spoke, his eyes ablaze with fury. "Remove your hand," he commanded in a terrifying demonic growl, "before I remove it for you."
The guard was unfazed, a sly smile on his face. In a gruff tone, he said, “Release the princess unharmed, and no harm will come to you.”
Kage's glare could pierce through stone as he stared down the guard, venom practically dripping from his fangs. Every muscle in his body seemed coiled, ready to spring into action at a moment's notice.
Yet wisdom prevailed, and Kage resisted the urge to attack. He knew inflicting harm would only make a dangerous situation worse. Instead, he issued a chilling warning.
"If you ever lay a hand on me again," Kage spoke in a low, rumbling demonic voice, "you will lose that hand and more. The girl comes with me. Tell your king if he wants her back, he must prove himself worthy of a child's grace. Now leave us in peace, before I lose my patience."
“Our king is worthy of everything. He has done nothing to the princess and anything he has done she probably deserved. I've seen how bad she was in her language classes. She was probably being a failure. She sure looks like one.” The soldiers below began to laugh at that.
Oriana looked over at him, obviously hurt by this comment. New languages just didn't come easily to her. Yeah, she usually got F's on the test, and barely got any sleep because of her night tutor, but she tried her best. Always. It was just never enough. She looked up at Kage, seeing if he was going to be angered or agree with this comment. Maybe he really liked languages.
The soldiers down below began glancing around, looking scared. Soon, animals were everywhere, big and small. Bears, deer, moose, lions, rabbits, squirrels, cheetahs. All the high priority game her father had, had the surrounding castle stocked with so he could hunt. They were there and not looking happy at the guards.
They all drew their swords and got into a circle, ready to fight if needed. The guard in the tree looked over at Kage and glared. “What did you do? What sorcery is this?” He asked in a harsh tone, reaching for his sword.
(Sorry for the shortnessss)
Kage's eyes flashed with anger as he regarded the guard's insulting comments towards Oriana. In a booming demonic voice that resonated through the forest, he retorted:
"The child before me works hard and perseveres despite adversity. Unlike worthless souls who judge others to elevate their own frail egos. Her efforts alone place her above the likes of dishonorable men who dare insult an innocent."
With lightning speed, Kage slashed at the branch holding up the guard, severing it from the tree. The guard cried out in alarm as he fell, crashing through other branches on his descent.
Turning towards the other guards below, Kage's demonic aura flared to life, pulsating with dark energy as his features took on a more hellish cast. "Think carefully before you speak again," Kage warned, his blazing eyes filled with wrath. “The next one to insult this child will loose much more than stable footing.”
He pulled Oriana closer protectively, shielding her from the guards' view. “Understand this - no child deserves cruelty, least of all from those meant to protect her!”
Kage leapt effortlessly down from the tree, his demonic aura filling the air with dread. He landed before the lead guard, his now massive form towering over the man. “Your king is worthy of nothing,” Kage snarled, his voice dripping with contempt. “And you - you are worthy of even less.”
Kage's voice dropped to a dangerous growl as he addressed the guard once more with bared fangs. “Call this child a failure again, and I will paint these woods red with your blood. The cruelty she has endured comes only from those who are truly worthless. Take your false king's empty rhetoric and begone, lest you face a protector's wrath.”
With another threatening swipe of his claws, Kage turned his back on the guards, signaling an end to the confrontation. His demonic features retreated as he leapt gracefully back into the tree, scooping up Oriana protectively in his arms once more. He held her close and leaned forward from his branch.
Oriana grinned as the guards paled and ran away quickly. The animals were still there, looking up at Oriana expectantly. She smiled and reached for them. One of the Lions planted its paws on the tree to get closer. “Mr. Kage! I want to see the pretty animals!” Oriana said, with a little squeal of excitement.
Once she was down, she went around petting them all. They nuzzled her, asking for more but she just smiled and told them to wait their turn. Once she was none petting them all like four times she grinned and put her hands on her hips. Then a small whimpering sound could be heard coming from one of the nearby trees. She slowly walked over, and there was a baby male lion. It looked hungry and was very dirty.
Her eyes filled with sympathy as she studied the creature. She picked it up and began petting it gently. It made a small purring noise and snuggled closer, happy for the warmth she provided. “I will name you Rajah.” She said. Rajah looked up at her with his emerald green eyes. “You like that name, huh?” She asked as she rubbed behind his ears.
She sighed as she looked at Kage. She then grinned. “My first pet!” She said as she looked around and held Rajah up, showing him to the other animals. A variety of noises ensued as they all nuzzled him, seemingly happy.

Kage watched with a mixture of amusement and pride as Oriana interacted with the animals, her gentle touch and kind words eliciting a response that was nothing short of magical. He marveled at the connection she had forged with the creatures, a testament to her innate ability to bring warmth and love wherever she went.
As Oriana held Rajah up, introducing him to the other animals, Kage couldn't help but feel a surge of happiness in his heart. He had witnessed firsthand the pain and suffering that Oriana had endured, and now, in this moment, he saw her embracing a newfound joy and companionship.
With a gentle smile, Kage approached Oriana and Rajah, his eyes filled with a mixture of pride and affection. "You really do have a way with animals, love," he said, his voice filled with admiration. "It seems as though they have recognized the kindness within you, and in return, they offer their love and protection."
He reached out and gently stroked Rajah's mane, his touch radiating a sense of calm. "Rajah is fortunate to have found such a caring companion in you," Kage murmured, his voice filled with a genuine warmth.
As Oriana reveled in the joyous company of the animals, her smile widened when she heard the familiar fluttering of wings. Yomi had caught up with Kage and Oriana, her scaled form gliding gracefully through the air. Landing softly on a nearby branch, she chirped happily, her eyes sparkling with delight.
Yomi, being much smaller than the other animals, found herself the target of their playful nips. She let out a series of high-pitched chirps and flapped her wings in protest, trying to evade their curious advances.
Kage, amused by the antics of the animals, stood guard nearby, his eyes scanning the surroundings for any sign of danger. He observed the interactions between Oriana, Yomi, and the creatures with a sense of contentment. It was a rare moment of respite, a glimpse of happiness amidst the turmoil they had faced.
A smile tugged at the corners of his mouth. Despite her small stature, Yomi held her ground, dodging the playful nips with agility and grace. "Ah, Yomi," Kage chuckled, his voice carrying a hint of amusement. "It seems like you're making friends, too."
XDDD YESSSSSSSSSSS ORIANA ACTUALLY HAS WINGS- THEY'RE UNDERDEVELOPED BECAUSE HER PARENTS TRIED CUTTING THEM OFF, AND IT LIKE CAUSED THEM TO STOP GROWING WHICH IS WHY THEY CAN'T BE SEEN- I MIGHT MAKE THEM DEVELOP SOOOONNNN I DUNNOOOOO- ALSO- I LIKE HOW CAGE WAS JUST FINE WITH HER RANDOMY KNOWING HIS NAME OUT OF NOWHERE XDD)
Oriana grinned at Yomi. “Yomi, this is Rajah!” She said as she held him closer for her to see. He wiggled out of her hands and snuggled into her side, purring softly. Oriana grinned. “He likes you, Yomi!” She exclaimed as she patted the dragon.
She then walked over to Kage and hugged him, “Thank you, Mr. Kage.” She said as she looked up at him and then let him go. She then grinned and started glowing slightly, her eyes going full white, and a sharp pain going through her head. She clutched her head for a minute and then everything went back to normal and she was as chipper as ever. (Don't mind her magical abilities waking up XD)
The animals had started to play, running around each other and making happy noises of contentment. Oriana smiled as she sat down and the animals came to her, one of the lions plopping down in her lap. She grinned and began petting him, his soft fur sliding through her fingers. The other animals snuggled around as close as they could and she tried petting all of them.
Some got impatient and began licking her face, making her giggle. “Guysss! I will get to all of you!” She said as they nudged her with their heads. Rajah was still following Yomi around, very curious of her wings. He sniffed them and pawed at them gently, once even growling playfully at one.
I WAS THINKING OF GIVING KAGE WINGS BUT THEN I WAS LIKE: “MY DUDE HAS A DRAGON, HE'S FINE WITH HIS TALONS AND DEMONICALLY ENHANCED STRENGTH & SPEED”.))
THE STRUGGLES OF TRYING NOT TO MAKE YOUR OC OVERPOWERED AND GODMODDED:))
Yomi watched with a mixture of amusement and confusion as Rajah, the young lion, became fascinated with her wings. She tilted her head to the side, her eyes narrowing slightly as she tried to make sense of the situation. This was the first time she had encountered a lion showing such curiosity towards her wings.
As Rajah sniffed and pawed at her wings, Yomi let out a soft trill, her confusion evident in the sound. She gently shifted her wings, allowing Rajah to explore without getting tangled or hurt. Yomi's scales shimmered in the sunlight/moonlight (I forgot what time of day it was :DIES:), reflecting a myriad of colors as she observed the lion's playful antics.
With a tentative yet friendly chirp, Yomi cautiously extended one wing towards Rajah, allowing him to nuzzle and paw at the skin. She could feel the lion's gentle touch against her scales, a sensation that was both foreign and intriguing.
With a gentle nudge of her snout, Yomi playfully nudged Rajah away from her wings, signaling that their game had come to an end. She spread her wings fully, allowing them to catch the breeze, and took flight, soaring gracefully through the treetops.
Rajah let out a small growl of disappointment, but soon found himself distracted by the other animals, joining in their playful romp. Yomi watched from above, her eyes filled with a sense of wonder and contentment.
She circled back towards Oriana, landing softly beside her. Yomi nuzzled Oriana's cheek, emitting a gentle purr as she basked in the warmth of their newfound friendship. She was grateful to have met Oriana and to have been able to provide her with comfort and solace in a time of need.
Oriana giggled as she watched the animals. the lion was still on her lap, and she grinned as she pet it. “Best day ever!” She squealed as she pet him and he purred.
Rajah was still playing with the other animals, running around and pawing at them. He did a few playful growls and accidentally tumbled forward onto his head. They helped him up and he went back to playing.
When the lion let her up she walked over to Kage and hugged his leg again, grinning. She had someone to take care of her. Actually take care of her. And she couldn't be happier. “Where are we going to go next, daddy?” (PLEASE DON'T TAKE THAT IN A WEIRD WAY- SHE'S JUST LITTLE-)
(sorry for the shortnessss)
Kage's eyes widened in surprise as Oriana referred to him as "daddy." He looked down at her, his expression a mix of astonishment and tenderness. The weight of her words hung heavy in the air, and for a moment, Kage was at a loss for words. A warm smile then spread across his face as he knelt down to Oriana's level and gently ruffled her hair.
"Daddy, you say?" he said softly. "While I may not be your father by blood, it warms my heart that you see me that way." He gazed at her with kindness and affection. "Any place that brings you joy and peace is a place I am happy to go. The choice is yours, my dear."
Yomi suddenly leapt onto Kage's shoulders with a chirp, making both him and Oriana laugh. Kage reached over and gently scratched under Yomi's chin, eliciting a pleased purr from the dragon.
"It seems Yomi is quite excited for our next adventure as well," Kage chuckled. He turned back to Oriana with a warm smile. “Lead the way, darling. We will follow.”
(It’s so short HELP LOLLLLL 💀💀💀💀💀)
“Hmm, maybe the city? I heard there is regular school there! And lots and lots of people! And no royalty.” She said as she scrunched up her nose at the word. She was looking forward to that most of all. Plus, it was far away from her kingdom.
She giggled and walked over and picked up Rajah. “And lots of food for Rajah! He deserves lots and lots of food!” She said with a grin as she pet him. “He needs a bath, too. So we shall have to find a stream. And I need new clothes. I brought some coins so that shouldn't be a problem!” She said as she hugged Rajah close and jumped with excitement.
“I wonder who we will meet along the way? Hopefully lots of nice people. I can't wait to try new foods! Ones that aren't caviar. Ick-” She said as she scrunched up her nose in disgust. “Hey, where do you come from, daddy?” She asked as she looked up at him. She wondered how long he's been here, or where he had come from before this place.
“Is it true that in the human cities they have very tall buildings called skyscrapers? How do they get all the way to the top? A bunch of stairs? It sounds very tiring. And I heard they have something called phones! Weird!” She said as she made a thoughtful face and then looked up.
“We will have much fun in the city I think!”
Kage's expression lit up as Oriana expressed her excitement at the prospect of exploring the city. "The city does sound like quite the adventure," he agreed with a chuckle. "We shall find you new clothes, food to delight your taste buds, and many more fun surprises."
However, as Oriana asked about where Kage came from, his smile faded, a faraway look coming into his eyes. He paused for a long moment, as if deep in thought, before responding carefully.
"My origins are not important right now," Kage said gently. "What matters is the here and now, and the joy we can find together on our journey." He did not wish to divulge too many details of his past, for fear of frightening Oriana. Instead, he changed the subject, his smile returning.
"The city will be filled with wonders for you to explore," Kage continued. "And you are right - the staircases in tall buildings can be tiring! But the view from the top is well worth the climb." He playfully ruffled Oriana's hair.
(He shall explain if convinced to properly :) ))
:0 n o- he must tell her XD))
She studied him for a moment and then shrugged, giggling. “I can't wait to get there! But I will miss all of my animal friends. They will have to stay here.” she said with a sad expression. “But at least I will have you and Yomi, and Rajah!” She exclaimed as she twirled.
“What foods do you like? I like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!” She said with a small giggle. She could only get them when her parents weren't at the castle and the cook was the only one there. “And the view from a tall building sounds delightful!” She exclaimed as she closed her eyes and imagined being on top of a tall building. She then opened them, looking curious. “How do they not fall over? Do they have lots of things holding them up?” She asked as she looked up at him.
She then tugged at a strand of hair and her headpiece that marked her as a princess. She wouldn't have to wear it anymore. She smiled at the thought and fidgeted with it.
(Sorry for the shortienesss of ittt)
y e s. He will tell later because he doesn't want to retraumatize himself at the moment-))
Kage's heart swelled with affection as he watched Oriana twirl with excitement. He couldn't help but be captivated by her infectious joy and curiosity.
"As for me, I enjoy a wide variety of foods," Kage replied with a smile. "But peanut butter and jelly sandwiches sound delicious! We will have to find a bakery in the city that makes the best ones."
Oriana's question about tall buildings and how they stayed upright made him chuckle. "Skyscrapers are indeed impressive structures," he explained. "They have a strong framework made of steel and concrete, which supports the weight of the building. It's quite fascinating to see how humans have designed such marvels."
As Oriana tugged at her headpiece, Kage's expression softened. He reached out and gently took her hand, his touch comforting. "You don't have to wear that anymore, my dear," he said softly. "In the city, you can be whoever you want to be, without the weight of royalty. It's a chance for you to explore and discover your true self."
IDNFINFRN I LOVE KAGE- HE'S SO WISE-))
She grinned as she looked up at him. “I want to see a skyscraper! Ooh! I also want to go to that thing they call Disneyland!” She said excitedly. When he took her hand she smiled and scrunched up her nose as she detached it from her hair. She then handed it to him. For something so small it was pretty heavy. “See? Feel how heavy?” She asked with a smile.
“We have to wear those all day every day. Except for bed. My mom has a real tiara, though, and it's heavier than that.” She said. She never really talked about her father, do to the fact that he often haunted her dreams and she was terrified of him. She looked at the ground and shrugged.
“One thing I will never miss is the tight dresses. Or the strict diets. The etiquette lessons were terrible. And learning to walk in those big heels. More like deathtraps. And my twin always got credit for things I did. I won't miss that either. Do you have siblings, daddy?” She asked as she looked back up at him.
As she waited for an answer, she saw something moving on the ground. A snake. She grinned and picked it up gently, making sure to set down Rajah as she did so. She held the snake as it moved around and looked up at her and then stuck its tongue out. She giggled and held it up for Yomi to see. “This is a snake, Yomi!”
Kage watched with a mixture of amusement and concern as Oriana picked up the snake. While he knew she meant no harm, wild creatures could be unpredictable.
As Oriana showed the snake to Yomi, Kage said gently, "Be cautious with our new friend here, Oriana. Snakes can be frightened easily." He waited as Oriana studied the snake a bit longer before continuing.
When Oriana asked about Kage's siblings, a hint of melancholy crept into his tone. "I used to have brothers and sisters," he said slowly. "But they passed away long before I met you, my dear. Their memory lives on in my heart though."
Kage reached out and placed a comforting hand on Oriana's shoulder. "Now I have you," he said with a warm smile. “And Yomi too. Family comes in many forms.”
Yomi let out a terrified shriek at the sight of the snake, every scale on her body bristling with fear. She leapt up and clung to the nearest branch, trembling violently. Her wings were clamped tightly against her sides and her teeth bared.
Beholding the creature in Oriana's hands, Yomi's pupils turned to slits and an unearthly hiss emanated from her throat. Her whole body language screamed of panic and dread as she stared at the snake with unbridled horror.
Kage's expression turned to one of concern. He placed a comforting hand on Yomi's head and gently shushed her, coaxing her out of the tree. "It's alright, little one," he said soothingly. "The snake will not hurt you. Oriana will put it back where she found it."
Kage continued murmuring gentle words of comfort while stroking Yomi's scales, helping her come to terms with her fright as she trembled violently, clearly traumatized by the sight of the snake. She let out a series of agitated chirps and squeaks, her entire body tense. Yet as Kage continued stroking her soothingly, her rapid breathing began to slow and her panic gradually receded.
Once Yomi had calmed down enough, Kage turned to Oriana and explained in a gentle yet firm tone. "Snakes are Yomi's greatest fear, my dear. She has suffered deeply at their hands in the past. While your curiosity is understandable, I must ask that you not show her snakes again, for her own wellbeing."
Oriana looked sad. She hadn't meant to scare Yomi. She gently set the snake down and watched as it slithered away as she grabbed Rajah and held him close. She glanced at them and then walked away and sat at the base of a tree to give them some space.
She sat Rajah down in her lap and he laid down and closed his eyes, she patted him gently as she leaned back and looked at the sky. The sun was just starting to come up, and she started studying the clouds and the sunrise. It was beautiful. She smiled as she saw a cloud in the shape of a duck.
She sighed and closed her eyes, beginning to doze off. She opened her eyes again and they fell closed once again as she fell into a deep sleep. Dreams came to her and left just as quickly, until her mind finally focused on one. She was in the castle with her sisters, and they were playing a game. But then one of the maids came to get her, said her parents needed her. She followed the maid and was soon standing in front of her parents and they were holding her French grades. She had gotten a C. Then everything went black and she was running from something. Her father, she thought. She was terrified.
Her body started shaking, making Rajah paw at her, unsure of what to do.
(Sorry for the shortness, I have a headache.)
(Part one of his illusion abilities- because dreams are basically illusions, I made Kage be able to view people's dreams 💀👍 He can also tamper with them but he won't do that unless it's, like, a very very traumatizing nightmare-))
Kage's attention was immediately drawn to Oriana as he noticed her body shaking and Rajah's concerned pawing. He gently scooped her up into his arms, cradling her close as he whispered soothing words. His heart ached at the sight of her distress, the remnants of her nightmare still clinging to her.
"Oriana, wake up," he whispered softly, his voice filled with concern. "It's just a dream, my dear. You're safe here with us."
Rajah, sensing Oriana's distress, let out a series of worried growls as he pawed at her. Kage reached out and gently stroked Rajah's fur, offering the lion a comforting presence.
"It's alright, my dear," Kage murmured softly, his voice filled with warmth and reassurance. "You're safe. I'm here with you. You don't have to be afraid anymore."
In that moment, Kage's demonic powers surged to life, fueled by his concern for Oriana. He closed his eyes and focused his energy, willing himself to enter Oriana's dream. As his powers enveloped him, Kage felt himself being pulled into the depths of her subconscious.
When he opened his eyes, he found himself standing in the grand hall of Oriana's castle. The air was heavy with tension, and he could sense the presence of her parents nearby. Kage's gaze fell upon Oriana, who stood before her parents, her face filled with fear and anxiety.
Moving closer, Kage reached out a hand to touch Oriana's shoulder, but his hand passed through her as if she were a mere illusion. He could see the disappointment in her eyes as her parents held up her French grades, revealing a less-than-perfect score.
Kage's heart ached as he witnessed the anguish in Oriana's expression. He knew all too well the pain of trying to meet parental expectations.
In reality, somehow still having perfect control over his reality self, he rocked her gently back and forth, his touch offering comfort and solace.
She didn't wake up, it was often hard to wake up from these dreams. Probably because she had convinced herself she deserved them. As she dreamed, the darkness surrounded her. And she ran. For her life.
As Kage held her, the darkness receded a bit, but she kept running. Her fear was making her illogical. Doors appeared all around and she spun around in circles trying to make since of it all. One of the doors had light coming through it and she ran over to it, and ran through the door. She was at the table. They were eating, and she had asked for seconds. They told her no, that she was overweight and couldn't fit into her evening gown as it was. She nodded, and decided to skip a few meals. It turned into barely eating at all, and she remembered so well. A sandwich or something small maybe every couple of weeks. She got used to it.
Then she was at the doctors. They were trying to get her to eat. She was getting too thin, her parents told her that she looked horrible. She needed to eat. The doctors gave her food, but she pushed it away. It was too hard, the food would taste like sand, making it too hard to choke down. Her head was spinning. Then she was back at the castle, her parents were telling her she was a disgrace, she was too thin. They couldn't take her out in public.
She found herself thinking that there was something missing here. Someone should be here. Something wasn't right. Something tugging at the back of her mind. But then there was a bottle shattering in the distance and her dream focused on that night. She had fallen. They were telling her to get back up. That she was weak, she got up but they kicked her again. She was bleeding everywhere. The maid was pleading with them that maybe it was enough. They grabbed her by one of her wings and pulled her up and she cried out in pain. Then she was running through the woods again. Towards what, she didn't know, but at the end, wherever she was running, felt safe.
A word floated to her from the back of her mind. ‘Kage.’ She remembered. “Kage!” She yelled as she ran, frantically looking for any sign of him. He would help her, he always did.
Kage watched with a heavy heart as Oriana's dream unfolded before him. He couldn't help but feel a deep sense of sadness and anger at the way Oriana had been treated by her parents. As he saw her running through the darkness, he knew he had to find a way to comfort her and bring her back to safety.
Following closely behind Oriana, Kage called out to her, his voice filled with determination. "Oriana, I'm here!" he called, desperately trying to reach her through the chaos of her dream.
As Oriana yelled his name, Kage's heart skipped a beat. He quickened his pace, determined to find her and provide the comfort and protection she so desperately needed. Every step he took brought him closer to her, his eyes scanning the surroundings for any sign of Oriana.
Finally, he caught sight of her up ahead, running towards a distant light. With renewed energy, Kage sprinted forward, his heart pounding in his chest. He reached out, extending his hand towards Oriana, desperately hoping to grab hold of her and bring her back to reality.
As his fingers brushed against Oriana's hand, there was a sudden shift in the dream. The darkness receded, replaced by a warm, comforting light. The chaos melted away, leaving behind a sense of peace and safety.
Kage pulled Oriana into his arms, holding her tightly against his chest as his demonic tail rippled softly behind him. He whispered soothing words in her ear, his voice filled with love and reassurance. "You're safe now, Oriana," he whispered softly. "I'm here.."
Oriana wrapped her arms around him, so thankful it was over. She cried as he held her, so happy to have him. And then she woke up, the dream fading away and the real world replacing it. She rubbed her eyes and blinked, looking around. Kage was holding her.
“Dad?” She whispered as she looked up at him. Rajah looked relieved as he started licking her face, happy she was awake and fine. She giggled. “Rajah, I'm fine, it was just a dream!" She then held him and patted him for a few minutes, waiting for Kage to respond.
As she waited, her thoughts wandered. How had Kage been in the dream? Had he physically been there or had her head made it up? She glanced back up at him as she kissed Rajah's head.
(SORRY IT'S SO SHORTTTTT NOOOO)
Kage gazed at Oriana with a mixture of relief and affection. "I'm glad to see you awake, my dear," he said gently. "You were having quite a troubling dream."
He released his hold on Oriana but kept one hand resting reassuringly on hers. "Yes, somehow my powers allowed me to enter your dream and find you," he explained. "I was determined to bring you comfort and safety, even within your subconscious."
A small smile formed on Kage's lips. "You called out to me, and I followed the sound of your voice until I found you." He gave Oriana's hand a gentle squeeze. "I'm just thankful that I was able to bring you back from that dark place, if only for a time."
Yomi let out a soft chirp of pleasure at seeing Oriana awake. She fluttered down and landed on Oriana's shoulder, nuzzling her cheek. It was clear that Yomi, too, was relieved to see Oriana's ordeal come to an end, even if only in her dreams.
But then Kage froze as a rustle came from the bushes nearby. His eyes widened and he fell silent, every muscle in his body tensing up. Carefully and quietly, he moved Oriana behind him protectively. "Stay behind me," he whispered. "Do not make a sound."
Kage's talons extended defensively as he scanned the surroundings, searching for any sign of danger. But the bushes lay still once more and no further sound came. Kage remained alert and cautious, unsure if the earlier noise had meant any threat or was simply the stirring of an innocent creature.
For the next few moments, Kage remained wary, watching and listening for further disturbances. When none came, he exhaled slowly and relaxed his talons. Turning back to Oriana, he offered her a reassuring smile.
But just as he was about to speak, the rustling noise returned, accompanied by movement in the trees. Kage's senses heightened, and an unearthly hiss escaped his lips as he instinctively went on high alert.
He swiftly moved Oriana behind him, his eyes darting back and forth as he tried to make out the source of the disturbance. His tail lashed, talons extending once more. The tension in his body was palpable as he prepared for whatever might emerge from the shadows.
In less than a second, a sudden sharp pain pierced his shoulders as a heavy weight slammed on top of him from above, pinning him to the ground. Kage let out a demonic screech of agony as an unseen assailant attacked him from behind, digging cruel claws deep into his flesh. He thrashed around, desperately trying to rid himself of whatever was clinging to him. With a surge of adrenaline, Kage fought back, lashing out with the tip of his tail.
His tail found its mark, sinking into the soft flesh of his opponent's underbelly. The assailant let out an agonized screech, their claws gruesomely retracting from Kage's body.
When he turned around, he was face to face with a figure he recognized all too well.
Gritting his teeth against the pain, Kage quickly grabbed Oriana and scurried up the nearest tree, his movements swift and precise. Yomi followed suit, her wings flapping with urgency. His talons dug deep into the bark, providing a secure foothold as he ascended. Yomi followed closely behind, her wings beating with urgency.
The assailant, fueled by fury and pain, let out a bloodcurdling screech, their teeth gnashing mere inches from Kage as he climbed higher, his opponent hot on his heels. Kage's body seemed tense as he comprehended what just happened, but he refused to let go of Oriana.
In the dappled sunlight, the appearance of their opponent finally became visible. It was a Midoriko dragon, a breed from Kage's home planet known for its agile and sleek body. The dragon's long sinewy legs and imposing wingspan exuded strength and power. Delicate patterns were interwoven on its wings, resembling an extended canvas of green, adding to its magnificent and intimidating presence. Sharp spines and curvy horns adorned its large head, and its pupils slitted furiously amongst eyes of amber that shimmered with intelligence. The creature's elongated neck and serpentine snout contributed to its eerie and captivating quality.
Oriana giggled, not really understanding the weight of the situation. She stood up and her happiness must have triggered something, because sparkles began floaing in the air, all around. They were of many different colors and were so beautiful. They danced around and landed on everyone they came near.
She smiled and reached for one and held it out to the new dragon. “No need to be angry, we are friendly. We will not hurt you unless you hurt us.” She said with a look of tenderness on her face. She hoped they could be friends. She didn't want any of the dragons to be mad at them, they were all so amazing.
She tugged at a strand of hair, which sent sparkles everywhere that eventually landed in Kage's hair, and on the dragons. She smiled, transfixed by the beauty of the moment, not sure how things would go from there. She hoped the dragon would calm down. She didn't want her father or the dragon getting hurt. She smiled again at the creature, still holding the sparkle out to it.
(Sorry it's short)
The dragon instantly recoiled at the sight of the sparkle, its eyes widening in panic. It took a step down the tree and hunched its body slightly, lowering its neck and craning its head away from the sparkle. Its wings flared outwards to appear larger, and an anxious hiss escaped its jaws.
When the sparkles landed on the Midoriko's scales, it let out a frightened hiss and shook its body vigorously, trying to dislodge the lights. It was clear that the dragon found the sparkles threatening or disturbing in some way.
Its body immediately tensed, its scales rising into sharp ridges along its back and wings. Its claws extended out from its toes, curling into threatening talons. Its breath quickened into a low hiss as it narrowed its eyes onto Kage, Oriana and Yomi.
At this reaction, another Midoriko who had been watching from a nearby branch swiftly swooped down to intervene. Their scales flashed a warning color and their snout crinkled in a snarl as they positioned themselves protectively in front of the first Midoriko. Clearly this second Midoriko saw the sparkles as a threat and was prepared to defend their friend from what they perceived as danger.
The larger Midoriko then turned its attention up towards the branch where Kage, Oriana and Yomi were perched. It reared up on its hind legs and flared its wings, aggressively hissing and snapping its jaws at them. The frightened Midoriko followed suit, joining in the displays of aggression.
The larger Midoriko then lunged forward and snapped at the branch, causing it to shake violently. The frightened dragon jumped onto the large dragon's back and the two began thrashing the branch together, attempting to knock Kage and the others to the ground.
Kage quickly wrapped his arms protectively around Oriana and Yomi, using his body as a shield. He hissed and lashed his tail at the dragons, threatening them with his own displays of aggression. A low growl emanated from Kage's throat as he prepared to fight to protect those in his care.
But, the dragons' body language immediately changed upon seeing another of their kind. Their slitted pupils dilated, wings drooped slightly, and heads lowered in a submissive posture. The new arrival stalked slowly down the branch above, eyeing the attacking Midorikos warily. Its body was tense and coiled, ready to spring into action.
This new arrival swooped down from the canopy, wings spread wide to catch the air. Its scales glinted emerald green in the sunlight, patterned with swirling gold markings. The dragon moved with lethal grace, talons extended as it prepared to clash with the first angry Midoriko. Its eyes blazed yellow, pupils narrowed to thin slits. The spines along its neck and back stood erect, and a low hiss escaped its jaws to expose rows of knife-like teeth. The dragon landed lightly on a branch, tail waving menacingly as it assessed the situation. Even at rest, the dragon's powerful muscles ripple beneath its armor of scales, ready to spring into action at any moment.
The angry Midoriko turned at the intrusion, letting out an ear-splitting roar of challenge. It spread its wings wide and lunged at the new arrival, jaws snapping. There was a flash of talons and wings as the two Midorikos collided, a frenzy of thrashing tails and slashing claws. The branch they fought upon shook violently, leaves ripped away by their fury. They rolled across the limb, grappling and biting, until one finally gained the upper hand.
The defeated Midoriko cowered and backed away, folding its wings tight against its body to appear as small as possible. It let out a series of high-pitched chirps and whines, scampering further up the tree to get away from the other dragon, fleeing shrieking into the canopy.
Another Midoriko dragon emerged from the canopy and slowly approached the victorious dragon, moving with cautious, deliberate steps. This dragon was slightly smaller with duller scales, likely an elder or matriarch. It held its wings close to its body and kept its neck arched in a submissive posture, lacking any aggression.
Suddenly, the older dragon's body language showed clear signs of fear and panic upon seeing Kage and Oriana. Its eyes widened, pupils shrinking, and it flattened its body to the ground in a submissive posture. It let out a series of soft fearful chirps and squeaks as it backed away slowly.
Seeing this, the victor swiftly moved between the frightened dragon and Kage. It took on a more imposing posture, with its horns fully erect, wings spread wide, and neck arched high. It let out a series of hisses and roars at Kage and Oriana, clearly acting aggressively to defend the smaller dragon.
Kage watched warily from his perch as the larger Midoriko stalked back and forth above, its eyes trained on him. The smaller dragon remained hidden behind the larger one, only its snout peeking out occasionally.
After a few tense moments, the larger Midoriko suddenly lunged at Kage with lightning speed, its massive wings propelling it through the air in a single powerful beat. Kage quickly evaded the attack and leapt to a higher branch, gripping the tree trunk tightly with his talons. The Midoriko crashed into the tree and momentarily lost its footing, giving Kage an opening to escape to a neighboring tree.
The two Midorikos pursued Kage and Oriana from tree to tree, snapping and clawing at them whenever they got close. Kage fought back when necessary but mainly focused on putting distance between them and the dragons. Eventually, the Midorikos gave up the chase and returned to the forest, allowing Kage and Oriana to continue on safely.
