magi 13Richard stared at the girl before him. Mary lied in the bed, her once vibrant features were pale and gray, the new damper ring sucking what little energy she had away. They couldn’t just give her a child’s damper ring, it wouldn’t do enough to block out the Great River’s mind. So she laid there, sleeping deeply and dead to the rest of the world.magi 13 by ~rikusdemongal
Steven pushed himself away from the door-jam of the private bedroom, to stand next to Richard.
“She’ll wake up soon.” He encouraged his childhood friend.
Richard heaved a heavy sigh and shook his head. “Maybe she should just stay asleep. She’d go through less pain.”
Steven put a firm hand on Richard’s shoulder and squeezed. “You can’t say that. There is still a chance to save her. Maybe one of these court fops is her true love. Passion like a Flame and all that jazz!”
“Or maybe he isn’t here or rejects her. What then?!” He turned on the g
magi 12Charles sat at the kitchen table, the coat slung over the bench, his arms bare to the chill of the room. The dragon tattoo that covered his arm and shoulder swirled and shivered in agitation. It had been 20 years since he last saw a Dragon Beauty. And that one was dead. He could still see the blood pooling around her prone form, the thick shell pieces between her legs, and the massive sky dragon above her, its wings brushing the ground, in its claws a miniature version of its self.magi 12 by ~rikusdemongal
Charles shuddered at the memory. A Dragon Master and a Dragon Beauty belonging to a different dragon should never flirt. It stunned him; that this girl would be one though. She wasn’t especially pretty, defiantly shy, and seemed to be too good for a dragon to take. And if she was carrying a Dragon Egg, she wouldn’t last long after the birth.
“We have to take her to the Saint.” Charles said to Morianu. “She knows what to do about Dragon Beauties, and Dragon Eggs.”
Magi 11Mary woke to the birds chirping and fighting over a feeder outside her window. When she sat up her head felt heavy, not unlike a headache or a knock to her head. But it wasn’t painful, just heavy. She put her hands to the back of her neck and pulled her hair in front of her.Magi 11 by ~rikusdemongal
Strange, how long was it before? She peered at the shiny strands. She got out of the warm soft bed and looked into the mirror.
It had grown at least a foot longer over night! Mary screamed before she could stop herself. I shadow popped up behind her in the mirror and to her horror when she turned around, there wasn’t a body attached to it. She screamed bloody murder and the shadow just tilted its head.
“Calm down, little one it is okay.” A voice said from the doorway. Mary turned towards it and surrounding Richard’s father was a pack of shadowy demons, peering at her with curiosity.
Mary’s throat was started to hurt from all the screaming lately.
Running footsteps p
Magi 10Inside the bath there was a roaring fire in the seldom used hearth. The marble bath was half full with steaming water and bubbles. The room was so hot that Richard started sweating as soon as he walked through the door. Mary was placed in front of the hearth to start thawing out. Her hair was still frosted over in places and Richard had to keep her from burning herself by sitting too close to the flames.Magi 10 by ~rikusdemongal
Richard rattled a few ideas about how to get Mary's clothes off since they were soaking wet and clinging to her skin now.
Having Mary do it herself was out of the question, her hands were so stiff from the cold she get barely hold anything. He'd have to do it himself. Luckily, her back was to him so he made quick work of the blouse and coat, the buttons holding the skirt around her waist were frozen shut, and her boots were encased in snow and ice. He put her boot clad feet to the fire, breaking the ice with one of the candle holders and by the time he got to boots off, the butt

Two dark figures perched precariously amidst the tree branches; hidden well from the trained eye of the estate guard. With the moon their only light, Hani and Gai quietly surveyed the scene before them. They had made excellent time that day after getting a good night's rest the night before. And now, they had arrived at their destination a few hours ahead of schedule.
"The orders state that we must enter the mansion unseen and meet at the eastern most garden where a man dressed in yellow, will greet us." Gai turned to Hani, "We let him know we are here by whistling the call of a winter finch."
Hani bit her lip lower lip, "I've seen fewer guards around the emperor's palace."
Gai nodded, "We can't let ourselves be spotted. Lord Hakanza fears there are spies amongst his ranks and it's imperative they are unaware of our presence."
"Understood. I suggest we use a transformation jutsu to get past the guards." Hani studied their environment, "I suggest we take
