Anna had then ran on a bit of an autopilot moments after getting into the parking lot to her own apartment.
She was dating a dragon. The very creature she’d only hear when it was guarding a damsel in distress or a companion of a more...pet-like variety. Never in her dreams would she have imagined that she would see, be up close to, touch, kiss..! And now they were together. She supposed the whole damsel in distress thing gave way to somewhat darker ideas now that she was with Cin. She snapped out of it for a moment and just scurried inside. She had bigger fish to fry at the moment than thinking of what could just be weird stereotypes. Besides, Cin was quite reserved for someone who could breathe fire at will.
One could even say that she expected him to be a...hothead. She laughed at her own stupid pun. The rest of the night was dedicated to misty studying and making a few lizard related puns whenever she got distracted or was on break.
The next morning, a few cities over from where the newly mated couple resided, another dragon grunted in annoyance and slight longing as she felt the space next to her in bed as empty. Her mate had snuck out for work. How dare he.
She made sure to send feelings of annoyance promptly through their bond. After a few minutes, he sent back a bit of happiness and she rolled her eyes. They’d see each other later but she still wanted to see him now as well. She sat up and started stretching when her phone started to chime. She grabbed it and looked at the notification. Cinnead? She smiled and started to type back her response.
I have been well! It is nice to hear from you, Cinnead. How have you been?
