When we finished eating I took the plates and went in the kitchen.
“So, where have you been all this time? Everyone thinks you're dead.” I said while washing the two plates.
“Well, I’ve been hiding. Only coming out at night so no one could see me, I was scared...that people would try to kill me.”
I finished the dishes and dried my hands. I went back in the living room and sat back down next to him.
“If you ever need a place to get away or rest, hide, or whatever! Just come here. You know this is your home too.”
He smiled and I smiled back. I could see tears form in his eyes but he held them back. He leaned over and gave me a hug. He squeezed me tightly, I could tell he was truly touched. He let go, as did I.
“I missed you so much...” he said staring at me.
“I missed you too.” I stared back. We sat in silence for a few seconds, just taking in the moment. Finally one of us said something.
“So, how did you become like....this?” I asked looking at his wings and tail.
He opened one of his wings and looked at it.
“Well, after you and Sky left, the dragon tried to attack me again. But, I killed it with my sword. I walked up to it and drank some of its blood, because I heard it makes you incredibly strong! But, what I didn’t do was wait until its spirit went into the dragon egg to do the rebirthing cycle. So, its spirit went into me...and my spirit and its merged. Now I guess you can say I’m half dragon.” He closed his wing and shifted his tail.
“Does the dragon spirit ever like...take over?” I asked nervously.
“Not really, sometimes I get urges to kill something but I can usually control what I kill. So, you don’t have to worry.”
“Ok, thats good.” I sighed with relief.
“Did it take long to grow your tail and wings?” I asked.
“Ummm, I’m not sure. It was about three to five days I guess.”
He looked at some of the pictures I had of my and my friends Sky, Dawn, Jason, Ant, Seto, Ghost, and himself.
“What happened since I was gone...?” He asked looking at the picture of Dawn and Sky together.
I told him all what has happened since he was gone. About Dawn and Sky, how Jason is now starting to make music, and other events that happened to me and the others.
When I got done talking he sat silently and blinked, trying to take it all in.
“Yea, its a lot I know.” I said with a little giggle in my voice. He shook his head.
“Yea, it really is.” He stopped staring into space and looked at me.
“What is it...?” I asked.
He looked down.
“I’m just really tired...even though I slept on the roof.” He yawned.
“I bet, come on. I’ll let you sleep in my bed.” I stood up and started walking towards my room, Enderlox followed.
“Here. “ I said walking into my room.
“You can sleep in here all day if you want.” He walked in the room.
“Thanks, I couldn’t ask for anything more.” He looked over at me and smiled.
“No, you not gona- aaah!” He grabbed me and tossed me on the bed.
“Hey!” I laughed. He jumped and landed on top of me. We both made an “Uggg” sound as he landed on top of me and as his chest hit mine.
“What do you think you’re doing?” I asked smiling.
“Don’t you remember when we used to do this all the time? Just throw each other on the bed at random times?” I thought back to all the time he did that to me, and I always tried to get him back but he was always one step ahead.
I laughed. “Yea, I do remember quite clearly.” We both laughed. When we stopped laughing he leaned down and kissed me. I pulled away.
“Are you sure you want to do this right now?” I asked. He looked at me.
“Why not?” He said with a smirk. I smiled and we kissed again. We both sat up, we kissed for what seemed like forever. He pulled away and got off the bed.
“What are you doing?” I was confused. Maybe the dragon side of him is trying to control.
“I’m fine. I just...” He paused. I got up off the bed and walked over to him.
“What is it? You can tell me.” I was starting to get a little worried. He never did anything like this before.
“I’m a little hard, but I don’t want to do anything you’re not ready to do.” I just looked at him.
“You’re right, I’m not ready to do anything like that yet. Maybe you could walk it off?” I felt a little awkward knowing he kinda wanted to do me.
“Alright, I’ll try.” He walked out of the room and out the front door, I followed. Before he ran off into the forest he stopped.
“Hey, you want steak tonight?” He asked me. I blinked at the random question.
“S-sure. Thats sounds good.” He nodded and flew off into the dark forest.
