Danielle groaned loudly and moved her meat back and forth between her large claws.
“It’s been too long!” They were gone for two days and still did not return. Remembering that Herman said they wouldn’t be long, Danielle growled.
“We are so close. I do not want to stop now!”
“Danielle, be patient. And stop talking, I’m trying to sleep,” Mue said lying a few inches away from her. Danielle scooped him up in her claw and stared down at him.
“Danielle, what are you doing?”
“How can you sleep when they were probably attacked by other bandits or who knows what else? Samuel might already be dead!” Mue’s eyes were shut tight. Danielle growled again and shook him.
“Mue, please don’t fall asleep!”
“Alright, alright!” Danielle smiled.
“I think I’m going to go after them.”
“What !? You can’t Herman told you to wait here!”
“I know but I can’t stand the fact that Samuel might be dead. Ella would never forgive me. Samuel protected me so I would not die and now I want to protect him.”
“Oh so do you have feelings for him?” Mue asked slyly. Danielle just looked at him. Did she?
“What are you talking about? Of course not!” Mue’s eyes twinkled.
“Oh really?” Danielle pushed the topic aside.
“Starting tonight I am going to the village right now. Here get on me back.”
“Hey wait!” Mue cried out. Once she put him on her back, he clutched her scales tightly with his tail sticking straight up.
“Hold on!” Danielle jumped off the ground and flew into the dark sky.
