Euphoric, the only word that described that feeling of the icy winds kissing the edges of his wings, the webbing of the span. The cool air casting against the underside of his wings with each heavy beat, the updrafts throwing him back further into the sky. As the clouds broke around him, the sun crested against his scales in a warmth all but lost amid the rushing winds around him. His chest heaved a heavy breath, loosing it out in the mixture of a powerful roar, a commanding call in domination of the skyline around him. The black scales rippled along his chest as the vibrations shook his body, the noise echoing far off even down to the plains beneath him. His legs hugged in tight near his chest as his body twisted sharply in the air, spiraling in a roll as he ushered himself forward. The leather straps reigned around his neck were yanked taut as a screech of either terror or excitement was proclaimed nearly in vain over the roars of the winds around the dragon.
"Hells Fenix, you're going to kill me if you keep doing that! Down further before I freeze!"
The snakelike neck of the dragon cascaded backward to look upon its companion, the rider clutching tightly around his neck, her slender legs pinned into his sides and hooked back with holsters to keep her secure. A fond glimmer crackled in his eyes, but his head nodded as his body took a sudden dive, piercing the clouds again in a wide birth, barreling downward at a breakneck pace. His wings flung outward and cast around, the wind cascading over them again as his descent slowed and his body continued forward, the screams of the young elven woman still lingering even as their fall slowed. His body shivered with an electric enjoyment, his talons clicking against one another in a manner of pleasure with himself. He circled his claim in the air for a moment, giving a wide berth in the air, letting her screams fall back to panicked, wheezing breaths. His chest rumbled, clear amusement in a hearty laugh as prismatic eyes flicked to her amusedly.
"You're an ass, boy!"
A toothy grin was flashed, and his head bobbed in a nod as he continued to blaze a trail forward through the sky. His tail lifted, dragging a blanket from the bags tied on his flank and placing it around the elven woman snugly. His tilted eye watched her as she nestled into it, and then nuzzled against the side of his neck. Her arms wrapped back around him, her hands tight to his scales. His head rested back against her momentarily, before turning to gaze back to the path ahead.
"Rest easy for now, Avae'ess. Our travels will land us outside Dina in another day's flight. I was just having a spot of fun."
His tail curled behind him, wavering in his wake. The beating of his wings became a lullaby as the elfess spoke softly to him. "Lach'lann will be eager to meet you. I cannot wait for you to meet him. Just..remember the manners we worked on, yes?"
The dragon snorted brashly in retort, his eyes falling to the plains painted beneath them like a brilliant art, the outline of a last village along the river visible in the horizon.
