[b]"You'll be fine, luv."[/b] The gentle bogsneak assured her with a warm smile. [b]"The group's going to stick together. You'll protect one another.

[b]"I'm glad you're coming with us."[/b] The bogsneak hesitated. [b]"Actually, I'm not."[/b] She blurted sheepishly. Aurora blinked in confusion. [b]"You're. . . You're not?"[/b] She echoed. Rikki shook her head sadly. Everyone seemed to share Aurora's confusion. Nobody had heard anything about the bogsneak leaving. [b]"Where will you go?"[/b] Jade asked, her expression unchanging. Rikki shot the spiral a knowing smile. [b]"To The Ashfall Wastes."[/b] She said without missing a beat. Jade tilted her head curiously. [b]"Why?"[/b] She wondered. Rikki shuffled her feet guiltily. [b]"I. . . I've been sort of [i]pulled[/i] there recently."[/b] She explained dodgily. [b]"Weird visions, an uncontrolled desire to feel warm. . . I think I need to be there. For some reason."[/b] To Aurora's surprise, a smile rose to her own face. The coatl spread a wing and nudged Rikki's shoulder gently, conveying that she understood. [b]"We get it."[/b] Aurora said before anyone else could speak up. [b]"You might be needed there more than you're needed here."[/b] Rikki grinned thankfully at Aurora. [b]"Thank you for understanding."[/b] She murmured. [b]"I will return someday. But for now, I believe I must go."[/b] The bogsneak looked far more prepared than the rest of them, which Aurora was startled to realize she hadn't noticed sooner. A satchel that hung at Rikki's side was bulging with little necessities, like potions and a little food. It wasn't any cold where she was going, so her scarf hung limply around her neck, but the bogsneak stilled looked ready enough to trek all the way to Dragonhome. Romeo and Juno both looked crestfallen at the news, losing their previously humorous demeanor. Before the bogsneak knew it Romeo barreled into her arms, wrapping his lanky arms around Rikki's neck in a tight hug. Juno quickly followed, nudging Romeo a bit to hug the bogsneak herself. [b]"You'll come back soon, right?"[/b] Romeo asked nervously, his voice muffled by the bogsneak's scales. Rikki slimed and pulled away from the two dragonets. [b]"Of course, you two."[/b] She assured them with a teasing glint in her eyes. [b]"I'd never leave you all for long."[/b] Juno laughed weakly. [b]"Good luck."[/b] She said, releasing Rikki's neck. The bogsneak chuckled, slowly sweeping her tail through the air behind her. [b]"Good luck to you all as well."[/b] She replied, gazing at her clan with nothing other than pride. [b]"I hope to see you all very soon."[/b] And with that Rikki spun around and lifted into the air, spreading her wings and soaring towards the Ashfall Wastes, leaving her former family behind her.[/center] ------ [size=2]@AmberHive @mayanaz @Spottedleaf125 @Skyeset @Moon314 @WildRose42 @PrussianWizards @Firedawn @Dragondreamer @Shadow104 @ScaledBookworm @LuminusPrime @CrAZDragon @DragonMist @Shadowhunter43 @Digimon11 @Avu42 @MythicalMemeLord @Vyxen @VioletEevee @Verdant @Sanddollar @Faolyn @Bluebirdi3 @ThornOfStorm130 @ObsidianMage @TropicalDiamonds @fenshae @Birdleap18 @SpiceCookie @Catkidemma @WOF2012 @Chbosser @L1llysage[/size] Rikki will be taking refuge in my friend @WhoOwlborn's lair for the time being ^w^ I have lore plans that involve this, but she's not that interesting a character now Wait and see what'll become of her ;D

Day 103:
The dragons had gathered up what few belongings they had and all gathered just outside the hut. Ajax had retreated to the shadows, busily staring at Stormi. The puppet was clutched tightly in his claws, as if he were remembering what it had done in the last moments of his sister's life.

Myu had finally finished his project with Ash's feathers, and now wore a plume of purple feathers by his horns, woven together by some sort of jewel-adorned string he probably stole from somebody else. The guardian fussed about it everywhere he went, and growled at anybody who so much as looked at it funny.

Okay but Aster's death HURTS.
She sacrificed herself, but in a way it was an even bigger sacrifice than Zaffer, because at least by using all his magic Zaffer wasn't in pain anymore, and Zaffer knew his mate and friends would be safe. Aster died only to keep it from becoming even stronger. For all she knew it would slaughter everyone anyways.

Sorry if this seems random, I get very very attached to characters sometimes.
