Characters: Era and Edric
Summary: Era is a dragon. Some people hunt those.
Status: Threaded, Incomplete
The dragon wheeled, drawing series after series of concentric circles hawk-like through the air. Below the landscape fanned out in all its wintery majesty. Era enjoyed looking down at it from this height.
Tucking her wings to her, Era nosed into a dive. She relished the sensation of wind slipping over scale as she fell. With little more than a breath to spare, she unfurled her wings and beat them twice, halting her fall and smoothing out to glide perilously low. She stretched the distance as long as the momentum could carry her before alighting softly on the ground.
Beneath her feet, the snow crunched. Era liked the sound, so she flexed her talons, raking them through the snow. Today she felt light and giddy. Spontaneously, she tossed herself back into a snow bank, rolling and frolicking until the ground was a muddy battlefield of tracks.
A dragon’s hearing is particularly sharp, so she caught the small sound that another might have missed. Era froze, breath leaving in a tiny puff against the sky. For a moment she remained deathly still and wondered what was there.
