The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 8Euralye P.o.v.
I woke up feeling dizzy and disoriented. I was confused as to where I was until I saw Titian beside me.
‘Where am I?’
‘You’re here to recover from your stab wound.’
The memories slowly returned to me and I felt relieved that Titian had protected me while I was unconscious.
Titian asked me what happened while we were separated and I told him the whole story. He told me of his short alliance with ‘Captain’ (a.k.a. Spangles) and how he found me.
When I told him about the staff Loki possessed and the similarity it had with the magical energy we were tracking, he agreed with me that Loki was the sorcerer we were searching for.
We were talking when Stark came in.
“Great! You’re both here. Come on losers, we’re fighting aliens.”
He turned around and walked away. I glanced at Titian and he shrugged. We followed him.
In the way, more of the strangely dressed humans joined us. The redhead, Spangles, Stark, and a new
The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 7Titian P.o.v.
After the floor collapsed, I was left standing between Skin-tight and Suits. Both had stopped quarreling and were now preparing for battle. I wanted to go find Euralye but found myself being pushed in the opposite direction. I growled, wanting to transform to my dragon form but Skin-tight was putting something on his ear. I grabbed one too and it looked a lot like an earphone. The moment I put it on, I heard voices. From all of them, I gathered enough info to know that this ship was going to crash at any moment if the engines were not repaired. Skin-tight (Captain) stated that he and Stark were going to take care of it. Not trusting these humans and wanting to keep on living, I followed them.
From what little I knew of the technology of this world, I knew enough about repairing engines. Stark and Captain Skin-tight divided and I followed the Captain. We suddenly reached a dead end and a big hole was on the wall. I skidded to a stop so I wouldn’t tumble into the void
The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 6After I finally stopped falling, I realized that I was trapped. The floor had collapsed and its remains were scattered around. Two other humans had fallen with me, the redheaded and Bruce, and both were hurt. When checking myself for any injuries, I found some bruises and a few cuts but otherwise I was fine.
“Bruce you need to stay with me. Try to relax.”
I turned to the redheaded and she was trying to talk to Bruce in a tone that was similar to the one used to calm raging animals. I didn’t know why it was used on Bruce but my unasked question had its answer with what happened next.
Bruce had snapped at her in a more guttural voice and started to cry out in pain. Suddenly, he started getting bigger and greener in mere seconds. The more aggressive energy that I had sensed before was now pulsing and expanding until it was the more dominant one. The result was a Bruce that was enormous, with bulging muscles and green. Did I mention that he looked pissed as hell?
The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 5After keeping a straight path to the north, we sensed the energy coming from the east side of the country. But when we were nearby, the energy seemed to waver and it was suddenly gone. I groaned; it was capable of teleporting. We were not able of doing it ourselves so it was going to be an annoyance during our search
Titian wanted to investigate the surroundings of its previous location, so we stayed in a ‘motel’ for the night. After the human gave me the key to our room, the metal box behind him caught my attention. Titian kept on insisting that it was called ‘Teevee’ but I thought it sounded ridiculous. The device was showing images of what looked like a collapsed platform and I was curious.
The human barely glanced back to the box and seemed bored. “Just another government building bombed by terrorists or something.”
I frowned. It seemed oddly convenient and I was suspicious because it happened around the same t
The Gorgon and the Dragon Ch. 4I was walking home from the music shop. Lately, I was spending a lot of time in there. I finally knew that the sound that the came from the guitar was called music. My guitar lessons with Amber were something I looked forward to every week. After she noticed that I got annoyed if she over explained the subject to me, she quickly caught on how I learned better. She would play it to me, correct any mistakes I made on the first few times and let me practice until I knew it back and forth. Having thirteen minds running at the same time proved very useful in times like this. I didn’t want to make her suspicious so I restrained my speed and strength when playing, but she was still very impressed with my progress and even suggested on me buying a guitar.
It was actually a great idea, and I found a great guitar. It was a beautiful classical acoustic guitar, bathed in warm tones that started with yellow near the sound hole and extended until it was red on the edges. The neck was thin sinc
