Warm place to stay| Megamind| closed to Heidi and Cyrus
Amoxtli was proud, she tried to rise up and leave with dignity. She looked at Heidi.
"You I like, lamb, you know respect." she said drowsily trying to reach for the blanket.
One of the problems with snakes was that after they eat they become torpid. Dragons of Amoxtli’s kind could slow down the effect for safety measures. To hide somewhere to be in peace until all of the food is digested and energy stored, unlike in snakes.
When the dragoness reached for the blanket she reached the limit of suppressing the process and dropped down, becoming dead to the world. Ironically, she did appeared dead, even her heartbeat slowed down.
Heidi wasn’t sure what to feel about the ‘compliment’ and she kept herself quiet. But as the dragoness dropped, Heidi gasped. She wasn’t…dead was she? Heidi took a slight step forward. No..no, she was not dead. Heidi could sense life still beating in the creature’s heart.
The faun brought her hands together and nervously rubbed her nails before approaching Cyrus.
"Cyrus…? May she…stay just for the night?" Heidi asked. "I-I remember how the cold felt in the shelter and I…do not wish it upon anyone else." she added. However, this was Cyrus’s cabin and he ultimately made the decision whether or not Amoxtli stayed.
"Respect." I nearly sneered. "You shouldn’t speak of what you don’t know." I was about to become more forceful…when she collapsed.
Not dead, she still had a sense of life about her still form, but… I still bristled, wanting shove her scaly body out the door. She’d survive, under the blankets I’d throw out with her. The only thing stopping me…was Heidi. I glanced at her, gaze instantly softening when I looked at her.
I knew how cold it could be as well, recalling my first night on this earth. survived with Azlariel’s help… somehow I knew this snake would be able to survive as well. As harsh as the urge was. Still, seeing the concern on Heidi’s face for this arrogant snake pull on something in my chest.
After a long moment, I sighed and looked away, jaw clenched. “Fine…but as soon as she wakes, she leaves. I do not want such arrogance in my home.” I grumbled, glancing at the unconscious she dragon one more time before turning my back and heading back to the ladder as I grumbled under my breath. “Invading my home with insults and arrogance…”
