On Spirit's Wings

On Spirit's Wings

She has no memory of who she is. No recollection of any family, who she was, or where she is. All she remembers are whispers, rumors of a nameless danger, a fear that is killing her entire species - and that she was sent to destroy it. Without any clues to what this thing is, she must track it down in a deadly race against time where the cosmos is on the line, and her greatest strength may just tear her apart.

Chapter 2.
The Escape

The Escape

A small dragoness was walking from the edge of a forest into a wide plain. There was a look of worry in her bluish-green eyes. Her icy blue spines on her back and down her legs were flat against her magenta scales. Her multiple pairs of wings were tensed, ready to fly if she needed to flee from any danger. She kept looking behind her, as if she was scared of a monster that could pounce on her at any second. Truth be told, it was more likely that the monsters would run from her, but she was oddly timid for her species.
Suddenly, she heard a loud shouting in front of her. She quickly looked in front of her and saw a gigantic beast with many heads and even more arms and legs. The heads were yelling many different things and the arms were holding clubs and spears. The legs were running at many different speeds. When they got closer, the dragoness quickly realized that she was being attacked by a mob of men. Terrified, the dragoness turned and ran. She couldn't use her wings, as if she did, she would fly straight into the trees. If she tried to fight back, she would be overtaken, as she was much smaller than the horde of humans. She didn't even know how to breathe fire yet. She put on a great burst of speed and darted into the forest. The mob was slowly advancing on her, but she knew that they would be drastically slowed down by the plants.
As she ran deeper, though, she fond to her dismay that her size was a serious handicap - trying to run through the thicker foliage was getting close to impossible. The humans, however, were easily able to dart around the trees. The dragoness' muscles were getting very worn, but she kept trying to run. Finally, she saw what looked like a clearing in front of her where she could finally fly. Boldly, she charged headfirst into the clearing, hoping she could at last escape these pesky men.
To her surprise, though, the clearing was only very small, as it led straight to the base of a mountain. Not to be detered, the dragoness jumped onto the mountainside and desperately tried to scale the rock. It was far too slippery though, because she fell back to the bottom of the mountain. She turned and cowered at the base of the mountain. Too weak to fight, she shrank near the ground, a look of fright in her eyes.
One of the men ran up to the dragoness. He was tall and muscular, with many scars across his face and arms. He turned back to the crowd of men and spoke in his gibberish tongue. The other humans seemed to love what he had said, because they were yelling and cheering at him. The man turned to the dragoness and pulled a sword out of a sheath on his belt. He raised it over her heart, and the dragoness closed her eyes and bared her teeth, ready to die.
Suddenly, the man let out a loud yelp. Startled, the dragoness opened her eyes and saw that the human was slowly incinerating before her very eyes. She watched in fear as the man dropped his sword, let out a bloodcurdling scream, and dissolved into nothing but ashes. All of the other humans were shouting in fright.
The dragoness quickly turned back to the mountain. She grabbed onto a ledge she hadn't noticed before and began climbing. She could hear the men below her, clamoring and trying to scale the mountain to kill their prey. The dragoness wasn't going to turn around, though. She had found a new burst of strength and climbed like she had been doing this her whole life. After a few minutes, the dragoness took one long, low sigh of relief. She was free.
Now, there was another problem. She couldn't just sit on the mountain forever. She had to find somewhere to go. Looking around, she noticed a cave near the mountain's peak. Determined to get there, the dragoness scaled the mountainside, reaching the cave after a few minutes. Looking back to see if anyone was watching, she slithered into the cave. It wasn't really much. It was a small stone cave with nothing in it but some stray spiders and bats which she could quickly get rid of. Yes, the dragoness thought, this was where she was going to live. Exhausted and sleepy, she curled up in the middle of the cave and fell asleep. She would deal with the spiders later.
