He was after her, there was no doubt about that. Shireth could hear his wings beating, even catch glimpses of his dark hide as he moved forward enough to come into her peripheral vision. The challenge he threw at her when he realized she was heading towards Evanoria 'air space' sent thrills through her.
>Are you now?> Shireth challenged. <If that is the truth then a little competition won't be a problem now would it? Surely you can prove just how perfect of an Adventuring partner you? Besides, I would not have you thinking I only picked you because you're the only one around.>
She gave another brazen call and in the distance answering bellows could be heard, at least by her. Taking a steep dive she let gravety add to her own speed before pulling up to see what new challengers have come. Several blues were in sight now, beating their wings towards her. If she wasn't mistaken there was a pewter too, but no browns or bronzes, such a shame. Nor anything as unique and special as Wraith however. Oh how she will have fun with these boys before she made her final choice. Shireth called out to them then dove into a patch of clouds, thrumming in pleasure as the mist dampened her hide but did nothing to dampen her lust.
With Locke so close to him, I'ent had no trouble at all to reach out and grab the man in both hands, yanking him right up against him. Shimmer gave a cry of annoyance and took to the air, knowing she would be of better use keeping an eye on things from a safe perch. I'ent was completely unaware of his pet, all he felt was Shireth's lust and there was no way he was going to let his 'mate' take off through the trees.
"Run? That's your plan? Oh you can run Locke but I'll chase you down just the same," he growled huskily. As much as the idea of sleeping with his mentor bothered him when he was unaffected by dragonlust, now that he was nearly completely consumed by it, his unease was completely forgotten. He wasn't going to let Locke out of his sight now, regardless of how he may feel once it was all over.
