• How long do you think it will be until she hatches?" Greed asked me. We left Dragon mountin and were heading back to the Mage school. It took us three days to get back to elven plains, which is where we were now. "I don't know. Maybe soon, maybe later" I said, yawning. "Why you so tired all of a sudden?" I eyed him, "It's late, of course I would be tired." I told him. He shrugged "I'm not" he said. "Well, than you're lucky" I said, yawning again. "Yeah, I know" he said. I laid the egg down on a soft spot of grass. Greed came and lied down next to me. "Can I put my head on your arm?" I asked. He looked surprised but nodded and extended his arm. I put my head down on the place where his arm and shoulder connected, it was actually comfortable. He wrapped his arm around my waist as far as it would go. "You know, you're kinda cute when you sleep" he told me. "And you're saying that now?" I asked him, refering to all the other times he saw me sleeping. "Well, before, you would have punched my lights out" he said, teasing a bit. "Nah, my tail would have done most of the work." I said, bringing it up for Greed to see it. It was thick, heavy, spiked, and red and black colors. He tried to grab it, but I flung it away. "You can't go grabbing peoples tails, especially a mage's tail." I said. He raised one of his eyebrows "Why?" he asked. "Don't you know anything? If you grab a mages tail, it's a form of proposal" I said. "Proposal for what?" he asked. "For marriage" I said, as if it was obviouse, which, it was. He turned stiff "I'll make sure not to touch it, for now" he murmured. "By the way, you haven't shown me that you can breath fire." he said. "mm, not now, I'm tired." I said, snuggling close to him. "Please?" he said. "Mmm, no" I said. "I'll kiss you" he said. "Mmm, nope" I said. "Please do it? I don't want to have to do perverted stuff to you to make you." he said. "Mmmm, nope." I said. "I'm too tired, I don't care what you do to me" I said. "Even if I force a kiss on you?" he asked. I shook my head, stubborn. "Even if I grab your, well, you know." he said. I shook my head again. "Man, you're stubborn!" he said. I nodded my head. "What do I have to do to make you breath fire?" he asked. I shrugged. He looked down on me, I looked up at him. We stared it was like a nonverbal battle, would I win, or would he? I was close to winning so Greed almost yelled "Oh, come on!" I shrugged "Fine" I said and sat up. He sat up, trying to contain some of his obviouse excitment. I stood up and sucked in air, than, let it all out in one blistering blowtorch of flames. It was orange and red, it looked like it went all the way up to the sky, when it only went about two to three feet. My voice was contained, all you could hear was the roaring flames. When I ran out of breath, the flames stopped. I caughed a bit, my throught dry. "Happy?" I asked him. He nodded. "It was a rhetorical question." I said and I kneeled by the river and drank the water. "So, breathing fire makes your throught dry?" he asked. "Yes! That's why I didn't want to do it!" I said. Than lied down back on Greed's arm. "'Night" I told him. He nodded "Thanks, and goodnight" he said. Wrapping his other arm around me. "Sorry about your throught" he whispered in my ear. "It's okay." I said and drifted off to sleep. I slept next to him that night, not knowing of the many romantic nights to come.
