"Now you hear me. While I thank you for the assistance, I do not trust you. I trust few dragons, especially males like yourself" she said, almost snarling. "Your... well-timed arrival is suspiscious at best, and your machoistic behavior is quite frankly aggravating. That, coupled with the rumors I've heard of a black dragon present at some of the Tribe captures, makes you a dragon I just love to hate. So, drop the attitute, and maybe I'll consider acting civil as well"
Draven gave her a droll look, the look that said he thought little of her current attitude as of now. "Never asked to be liked or to be trusted by you did I?" he asked her as he narrowed his eyes. This female was irritating him, pushing his buttons and pushing them wrong.
"Males like me? What are you a sexist? I can tell you, you females aren't all angels either. And if you must know I happened to be in the area after Astraeus told me that there have been captures around here. He told me about his plan of rallying up a dragon army and that's why I'm here. Masochistic behavior? When have I ever acted like I loved inflicting pain upon myself? And for your information hatchling, there's more than one black dragon flying around these parts. Doesn't mean that I'm that black dragon," he told her as he snorted. God this girl was such a child.
"If you would open your eyes and stop being so simple and narrow minded I might be more gentledragonly. First you hate me due to a dislike of males in general, then you hate me because I'm a black dragon. Way to be understanding. I don't know what that dragon sees in you," Draven said referring to Astraeus. Che, this female...what could Astraeus possibly see in her besides a stubborn side and a sassy side? Obviously she was a sexist and a racist as well, what more could a male ask for in a girl?
"Now, you said there was news of Astraeus? How'd you get it?"
He narrowed his red eyes at her. "What are you to Astrae? And more importantly what is he to you? From what he told me, you two knew each other for about 2 days...I've known him for 10 years. And why do you want to know how I got the info? I got in touch with him is all, not that it matters to you anyway. So if you will just put your discrimination aside, we can go rescue him, or we can sit here bickering and wasting time," he said.
He sized her up. She was slender, big wingspan, long body, light. On the other claw he was large, tall, but packed with muscle. His wingspan was shorter, he wasn't a fast flyer but he could carry more weight and he was adverse in fighting than flying.
