Love for the Moon Chapter 14
Drago quickly weaved his way through the busy streets of the kingdom. He stops in an alley to survey the area. Two guards walking towards him on one street while another pair is walking in the opposite direction. He had to make a decision and a fast one. Should he move either way, he will be spotted. Drago sighed and turned to the wall behind him. He took a breath and quickly scaled up the wall, making small scratching noises along the way. The guards overhead it but shook it off, thinking that it was some rats rummaging around the trash. They continued along their way chuckling about how sorry they feel when the owner of the trash finds it all over the ground. Drago watched them from the roof, giving a small sigh in relief. "Good, those idiots didn't bother looking on the roof. Now to get to the cast-" he felt a small poke on his tail, turning to see a few ravens pecking at it. Drago quickly retracted his tail from the ravens.
"Go snack on something else." He whips his tail at them, making it hit one of the ravens across the beak. The raven reacted and lunged at Drago, pecking furiously at his scales. The others soon jumped in on the pecking barrage. Drago growled deeply before swinging his tail in a 360 motion, knocking all the birds in several directions. The birds soon turned tail and flew off, leaving him be at last. Drago smirked at the small victory then continued his way towards the castle on the rooftops. Minutes later, he reached the gates of the castle where the cries of a familiar dragoness were clearly heard. Drago couldn't help but feel sorry for her. Drago looked behind him, watching as night was beginning to make its way towards the kingdom.
"I have to keep moving
." He thought before bringing his attention down to see more guards at their posts on the castle walls. Drago sighed, he knew that Gage would do all he can to make sure that no one would try interfering with his plans any further. Drago closed his eyes, his scales becoming more and more trasnparent as the sun began to set down. Once the sun has fully set, his scales are now matching the night sky; as if he himself was made of glass. Drago smiled, this form was something he could be very proud to have. He goes into a crouch, watching the guards make their rounds, studying their movements for any sign of opening. Two guards from opposite ends makes their way towards each other then quickly turning their backs. It was his chance and Drago would take full advantage of it. Drago quickly skidded down the roof, across the ground getting past the guards, finally scaling up the wall and over.
'Alright, now to keep going.' He thought as he continued his way towards the castle, eluding the guards whenever its necessary; which is just about most of the time. The palace was heavily guarded since the whole thing that took place a few days ago. Cries were soon heard, making Drago stop in his tracks and looking up. He finds a balcony on one of the towers where he believes the source of the cries is coming from. Drago slithers his way over to that tower and begins to scale up it, keeping a neutral pace to make sure the guards don't spot him. He made it half way up the tower where the cries were getting louder. His ears perked up when he heard an all too familiar voice.
" he muttered as he begins to pick up the pace slightly, anxious to see his beloved. He could then hear another voice speaking up, a deeper, and more ominous voice.
"Hello my love
" Said a dark tone. This made Drago stop in his tracks for a second, baring his fangs silently. Moments later, he could hear what he assumes grunts and growls before hearing a loud crash. Drago slightly flinched from the crash then soon hears a scream of terror. Drago quickly shakes off the flinch and continues to scale the tower with a much faster pace than previously. As he got closer to the balcony, he could hear low grunts and small whimpers. One final scream was heard before things went silent from there. Drago, fearing the worst used all the strength he could muster to scale the final piece of wall to the balcony. He could hear a door close as he finally reached the balcony. His eyes scanned the room. The lights were off and there was a strong scent of musk and essence in the room.
'Don't tell me he
.' Drago thought but was soon pushed aside as he looked to the floor. The one he started to care for, even love was on the floor, injured. He quickly made his way over to her, being very careful not to touch her for he didn't want to be detected by anyone. Observing closer at her, he could see her chest going up and down. It was raspy but it tells him that she was alive. He lets out a small sigh of relief. Drago looks over to the bed where the sounds of sobbing could be heard. The scent from before came back much more fierce than previously. He peeked his head at the top of the bed. There was Alythia, naked as the day she came into the world, holding onto a pillow and sobbing heavily into it. This sight made him want to go comfort her and at the same time run back to Lunaris immediately. Drago climbed down from the bed and headed towards the balcony, hopping onto the rail as he stared at the sky for a moment .
." Drago turned around to see who called him but only finds Valkyrie laying there. "Is she
.dreaming?" he questioned himself as he continued to watch her incase she says anything else. "Please
.don't leave me
.love...you.." she uttered out in a mere whisper. Drago's eyes widened from that statement then only lets out a small smile. "It's only for a while longer
..Just hold on.." With that, he jumped off the rail and dived towards the ground below. Once he made it, he skidded off to the outskirts of the kingdom in search of Lunaris to let him know of what just took place.
