WoaD: Chapter TwentyWings of a Dream:Chapter Twenty:We rested lightly for the rest of the night, and left our camp shortly after dawn, striking off towards what would seem to be certain death, unless, of course, you were able to obtain water easily. When we got to the start of the desert the heat was immediately apparent, it would have been uncomfortable if I was still human, but I found the heat refreshing. Saphira and I stopped hiding in the sky high above Eragon and Murtagh, opting to stay right overhead, both as a deterrent to predators in the sands, and to be ready to act in case of something going wrong.I've never felt this alive, I love the heat here!I nodded, it was incredible. Too bad we're the only ones, I think our companions are having a lot less fun than we are.She looked down, noting the degree of wear that was coming over the rest of our group, even the horses were starting to get lathered in sweat, and we had barely started into the deser
SoF: Chapter EightScales of Fayt:Chapter Eight:We got in the car, and started for my home, leaving the oddity of the day behind us, relaxing as we blended in as just another car on the road. I turned the radio up, and for a bit it was like nothing had happened. That illusion was broken by my phone ringing. I turned the radio down, and answered.Talk to me.Hey, it's Greg, and we need to talk, can you come by?I paused, covering the mouthpiece to my phone, Amber, I've got a friend that says he needs to talk to me, you mind if we drop by there first? Or would you like me to drop you off at my place?She looked over, He knows about you and your changes?He was the first outside of myself to know about them, guy's a herpetologist. He sounds kinda urgent.Fine, you sure he's trustworthy?I grinned, Fairly sure, I have no reason to suspect him to have been dishonest
SoF: Chapter SevenScales of Fayt:Chapter Seven:I followed her down a hallway, where she stopped in front of what appeared to be an interrogation room. She opened the door and ushered me inside. I stepped through the door and looked around. The room was bare, with the exception of the two chairs and table in the middle, and the camera in one of the corners. I sighed, and crossed the room, sitting down in one of the chairs. I watched her follow suit, sitting directly across from me. She was watching me closely, as if trying to find her own answers without asking anything, it was a bit disconcerting. I started to twitch my tail nervously, trying to get a feel for what kind of person she was in the awkward silence.I cleared my throat, Umm, you had questions?Yes, I do, She sounded like she was deep in thought still.I glanced around when nothing followed and the silence resumed. I wa
SoF: Chapter SixScales of Fayt:Chapter Six:I entered the cave cautiously, my tail twitching in excitement, I was going to meet eye to eye another person that was being altered to bring magic back into the world. I heard a light step behind me and spun around. Standing behind me was a young woman, her head was covered in small white feathers, which looked quite odd on a human head, and from what I could see the rest of her had golden fur coming in. She was in slightly dingy clothes and her posture was on of suspicion. I don't think she expected me to hear her, seeing how she was quite quiet, and she tensed, as if to flee when I spotted her.Wait! I'm here to help.She looked at me dubiously, but stayed, despite her obvious desire to run off. Really, just like those cops? You want to make a quick buck off the girl with fur and feathers?I started too laugh, she hadn't noticed my scales apparently.
SoF: Chapter FiveScales of Fayt:Chapter Five:As I was driving home I noticed one thing immediately, it was incredibly uncomfortable to sit in a car when you have a tail. The best that I could do was curl it around my right side and hope that it didn't interfere with my shifting. I pulled up to a stop light, and glanced up in my rear view mirror. I noticed that my scales had spread up my neck even, nothing would disguise me from being spotted now. I sighed and continued on my way home.When I arrived I unlocked the door and moved inside quickly, flicking the door shut with my tail as I moved inside. I immediately headed upstairs, and sat down on my bed flipping on the TV. I was only paying a little bit of attention to it, I was more concerned with how I would even run my errands.And in other news a series of strange creature sightings all over the US. Some people have refused to comment on this, but others are stating
