Era very nearly offered to show one of her books to Penny, but then she thought better of it. As much as she liked the girl right now, sharing something so important would only upset the dragon. Sure it would be fine to start, but then she would start doubting the human. It wouldn't lead any where good. So she kept her mouth shut.
"I don't know if all dragons have magic. I haven't met them. But the ones I know do. Only, it seems to get better as you get older. So there are a lot of things I'm still learning." She made a face that would probably be lost on the human. Era hated being patient. "I can magic all my books with me when I fly." It was how she had managed to keep them when she left home. Clawed hands weren't good for carrying.
She looked back at Penny. "What about humans? Don't you have magic?"
