PostSubject: Watery Desires   Fri Feb 06, 2009 9:10 pm



Saphira basked in the sun, the warm, hot sand slowly lulling her to sleep. It was a gorgeous day and even more beautiful was the cove in which she rested contently. It was a wonderful place to forget your worries and relax, her own private sanctuary away from the harsh dangers of reality.

She yawned and gazed out over the crashing waves. The water sparkled and danced to the tune of the tides and a playful breeze tickled at her cheeks. The ocean was her home; always had been and always would be. It was her element after all, but she couldn't help but be especially drawn to it, unusually more than a regular water element. It was a mystery to her, but it was one she didn't wish to try to solve. She attracted the water and the water attracted her. She protected the water, and the water protected her. She was part of the water, and the water was a part of her. It had always been like that. Always. Or at least as long as she could remember.

"Sapphire Ocean. It is my name after all. But I can't help but wonder why I have such a connection with it...Does it have anything to do with my origins?" She sighed and pushed the thoughts out of her head with a slight frown. It didn't matter at the moment. She was here to clear her head, as water always helped her to do, not fill it with more questions and uncertainties.

She hopped up and pranced to the ocean's shore, the waves’ ends licking her feet with their cold, refreshing tongues while she laughed and danced with the rolling sea. It's soft foam called to her, inviting her in to join the fun. She dove merrily into the oncoming waves, swam against the current, and burst up beaming, water droplets clinging to her face and reflecting the sunlight that was so warmly embracing her. Suddenly her gaiety seized as she got the uneasy feeling that someone was watching her, but she took a deep breath and calmed as quickly as she had tensed. The feeling of the ocean's soothing rocking on her body always seemed to relax her.

Looking around cautiously for any unwelcome visitors, a memory came back to her and she giggled. Last time it was a traveler who thought she was a water sprite. "Silly mortal," she smiled inwardly. She had tricked him into thinking she actually was a sprite so he wouldn't blab about her hiding spot. Humans became stupid sometimes when it came to demons, she didn't want to take the chance of him attracting any nearby samurai. Too much unnecessary trouble.

Saphira swam toward the shore and out onto the white sand. It stuck to her feet as she walked along a path of pearly seashells. She could see a shadow among the palm trees that surrounded the cove. Tensing, she crept closer to it. Last time it was someone she could easily sway. This time she couldn't be so sure. The shadow moved again but didn't stir from hiding. Saphira growled. She hated the fact that someone else was here with her, watching her. It was her cove, nobody else's; just hers.

"What business do you have here?" she called to the shadow. "Make yourself known. Stop hiding in the shadows of the palms."

The shadowed figure jumped slightly at the sound of Saphira's voice, then after a brief moment he seemed to compose himself and stepped out of the shade of the palm tree into full view.
"Hello there...." he seemed to struggle with the awkwardness of the situation. "I had no intention of spying on you, I was simply...resting." He didn't sound particularly convincing.

As he stepped into the light Saphira could see that he was dressed in simple gray clothing accented with leather padding around the shoulders and knees. He had a crop of medium-length black hair and piercingly green eyes, along with that his chin seemed to be lightly covered with stubble as though he had not had the chance to shave for a day or two. A short sword hung from his belt along with several pouches, some of which obviously contained rations. Upon closer inspection Saphira could see that his left arm was heavily bandaged, although, it seemed like it had been done quite poorly. Although the man didn't show any outward signs of pain it was obvious that his arm was not simply slashed or broken, it was absolutely mauled. His wrist looked like it had been twisted to the breaking point so that it stuck out at a strange angle, and his upper arm showed obvious signs of fractures and breakages. Despite his injury he was still able to speak calmly.

"Maybe I should ask you what YOU'RE doing here, this is no place for a woman like yourself to stray off to all alone"

Saphira eyed her clothes laying on the sand a few yards off, and she crossed her arms over her chest with a small huff. Who the hell did this man think he was, talking to her like that?

"A woman like myself?" she repeated, an incredulous look passing her usual bubbly features. Oh no he did not. A small growl crept up her throat and past her lips as she glared daggers at him. "And who are you, oh brave soldier? A knight in shining armor? Are you here to save this poor damsel in distress??" she snapped sarcastically, letting another growl escape her throat.

She scoffed and gazed at him with a bit of disgust, opening her mouth to shout once again, but her rough demeanor quickly vanished at the sight of his gruesome wounds.

"Oh my goodness, what happened to you??" she cried out, involuntarily taking a step closer to him to get a better look at his arm. It was twisted and ravaged so drastically that it stuck out in an angle that was obviously unnatural, and it was wrapped so poorly the bandage around it only furthered to hold his limb in the strange position.

Who was this man and how had he come to have such grisly injuries? Could it be that someone was searching with the intention of acquiring his head? If that were the case, she would distance herself from him as much as possible. She didn't need any unnecessary danger, especially not the threat of a bounty hunter.

Saphira took a step back and narrowed her eyes at the man, silently taking in his feautres for a few moments before speaking up again.

"Who are you?" she questioned, her tone now much more civil than it had been before. Now it was cautious, unsure, curious and confused. "How did you find this place?"

"Well, for what it's worth my name's Shen, and as to how I found this place...I honestly couldn't tell you, I've been stumbling around the countryside for about a day and a half now. I'm just trying to get away from the...THING that did this to me." Shen gestures at his mangled arm. "I really have no idea what, or who did this, all I know is that something attacked me in my sleep a few nights ago, I was lucky to get away with my life."

Shen looks around nervously as if scanning for his attacker. "look, I don't know if I'm still being tailed but...ehhh," the look on Shen's face shows a definite mental struggle. "I need your help," he blurts out. "I need somewhere to hide, somewhere to recover, somewhere where I won't be found. I don't have much time, soon the painkillers I've taken are going to stop working and i'm not going to be able to do much of anything. Call it a hunch, or maybe you can just call it desperation but I feel like I can trust you." Shen looks at Saphira for a long moment and then sighs, "i'll be more than happy to compensate you for your help, I...don't really have any money but I do have something I'm sure you'll like.

"So, what do you say miss...err, sorry, I never got your name"

"You feel like you can...what?" Saphira repeated uncertainly, taking a small step backwards as she did so. What a strange man he was. Either he had lost too much blood and was clearly not thinking straight, or he was simply too trusting. Typical human.

"How can you be so certain? I could kill you now if I wanted to," she remarked, unconsiously flexing her claws. "Besides, if you don't have money then I can't possibly think of anything else of value you could offer me."

She turned on her heel and walked away, only distancing herself by a few yards as she plucked her kimono from the ground and wrapped it around herself. She brushed her hands against the material, getting rid of any sand that clung to it before peering over at the man again.

"Shen you said your name was? My name is Saphira. You said you had something you believe would catch my interest?" she queried, her sapphire eyes twinkling with curiosity. As a dragon she was naturally eager to acquire new information, and from his earlier words whatever it was he held in his possession must be something of value. It was a fault of hers that all dragons possessed...lust for treasures.

"Make it worth my while and I may just may help you yet..."

Shen sighed, "at this point I don't exactly have much choice but to trust you, if i can't get any help soon I'll die anyway. I'd prefer to believe in your goodness than go back out there and collapse." Shen seemed to stagger forward a bit and Saphira could tell by the veneer of sweat on his forehead and his progressively heavier breathing that whatever type of medicine he had been taking for his pain was starting to wear off.

"Now", Shen said with as much of a grin as he could manage, "my offer", and from one of the pouches at his side he pulled a large gem. It was amazing, perfectly cut and smoothed with no blemishes, cracks, or imperfections. It's color was that of a clear night sky lit only by the light of a full moon. "This stone is worth a fortune, my fortune to be exact, this is the product of four years of odd-jobs and small time labor, it cost me everything, but hey, money means nothing to a dead man and neither do gems or trinkets, if you can help me then I have no qualms about giving this to you. However, just to be safe I'm going to hold onto the setting for this gem until I see it fit to give it to you, now that's fair right?"

Shen walks forward and presents the gem to Saphira, "here....take it"

Treasure and jewels had always been her crowning folly.

Saphira's eyes widened at the immense gem, and she found herself moving closer to the man and his grisly wounds--completely enthralled by the objects beauty. It was like nothing she had ever seen before, the color so clear and the clarity so fine...there was not a single scratch or mark on it. It was absolutely breathtaking.

She halted just inches away from it, reaching her hands up toward the gem before swiftly puling them back and shaking herself to her senses. Why was she accepting such a priceless object so trustingly?? Something so precious had to have its drawbacks.

"What's the catch?" she blurted out, her words sharp and almost rude. She eyes him warily, unsure of whether of not she should trust him. He was bleeding and his wounds were serious, there was no doubt about that, but she could never be too careful. She was not one who enjoyed surprises.

Shen sighed again. "What's the catch??? There isn't much of a catch, I'm bargaining for my life here. I'm running a huge risk that you're just going to swipe this gem and leave me here to die." Shen slumped over a bit, the pain was really starting to escalate now. "look, the odds are in your favor here miss Saphira, I just need to stay alive, it's that simple and I'm willing to give you everything I have to ensure this, so come on, help a guy out." He tried to flash a smile but it quickly turned into a wince of pain.

Saphira quickly snatched the gem from Shen's
hands and held in delicately in her palms, letting herself become captivated once more by its
magnificence before wrapping it safely within the folds of her robe.

"I wouldn't swipe it and ditch you," she sighed, rolling her eyes and taking yet another step
closer to him. He looked like he was in an immense amount of pain, and Saphira couldn't help
but feel almost bad for being so rude to him. She didn't mean to, she just couldn't be too
trusting with anyone--even an injured man. Who know that kind of tricks he could pull?
He could even just be a distraction for someone else to attack her as soon as she let
her guard down. Being cautious was a way of life her her, as she seemed to
be the prime target for assasins all over the place. She reached out her arms and
beckoned for him to come closer.

"Let me see your arm," she almost demanded, but her voice was much less
defensive now. "Don't worry, I won't hurt you or anything."

Shen obediently begins to unwrap the bandages around his arm. The flesh underneath looks truly bruised and tattered, purple blotches have sprung up and there are large tears that have turned an...unpleasant shade of yellow. "not pretty is it?," Shen said with another failed attempt at a wry smile. "urg, listen, do you have some kind of shelter somewhere? if you have some clean water I have a few herbs that can be made into a poultice."

"Don't insult me," she scoffed, and she grimaced slightly at the
sight of his gruesome wounds. They were infected, and the skin surrounding the gaping holes were
beginning to rot away. It was disgusting.

"This will only hurt for a moment," Saphira warned him, and she held her hands up in front of her. "Try not
to move too much, okay? You'll be doing yourself a favor if you don't." She suddenly pressed her hands against his open
flesh, ignoring the winces Shen was surely to react with. While the method wasn't very gentle, it was
necessary if he wanted to keep his arms. If he had come any sooner she might have been able
to take more time in healing him, but she needed
to act fast before it was too late.

A soft blue glow emitted from her hands, and she applied more pressure to the wounds in order to halt the bleeding.
A wave of warmth quickly began to flow from Saphira's fingertips and traveled up and along his arm,
blanketing it with a soothing numbness that she was sure was much needed.

"It's not healed, but that should keep the pain down for a while until we find shelter," she explained, and she closed
her palms--extinguishing the light they had previously been glowing with. "There's a cave not too far off, but traveling
by air is too risky. We'll have to go by foot because if what you say is true, I'm sure whatever it is that did this to
you is still wanting to finish what they started."

Shen looked at his arm, then he looked at Saphira," How....did you do that?" His tone sounded inquisitive rather than frightened or awestruck. He was about to ask, "did you just use magic?" but instead he bit his tongue. He had no interest in exposing the fact that he had previous experience with such supernatural phenomena in his homeland, he had no idea what kind of reaction he would get out of Saphira. For now Shen decided to err on the side of caution and play dumb for the time being. Perhaps he would get a chance to talk with her about it when and if he gained her trust, for the moment though, more important things were at stake.

Saphira shook her head in response to his question.

"No time!" she replied quickly, shifting her gaze toward the trees Shen had originally emerged from.
"We need to get moving, but we don't want to be out in the open..." She trailed off, tapping her
fingers against her chin before whipping herself around to face the man once again.
"We'll need to take shelter beneath the trees as we walk. They'll offer us protection from
any aerial attacks."

She slipped her sandals on and motioned for him to follow behind her, bringing her finger
to her lips to ensure he would be as quiet as possible. The cave wasn't too far off,
but she didn't want to take any chances of them running into any unexpected trouble.

"Wow, she doesn't waste any time," Shen thought to himself. He dutifully followed her under into the shade of the overhanging trees, he was no stranger to stealth but he wanted to see if she was any good. It didn't take Shen much effort to pick his way among the leaves and fallen branches that littered the ground, even with the blood rushing through his ears and the dull pain in his arm, he could manage, it wouldn't be far to safety.

"C'mon! You're too slow," she grumbled, and
she grabbed a hold of his hand, yanking him behind her while she hopped soundlessly through the sand
and brush below them. Her motions were fluid, her body lithe and footsteps light as they sped to their
intended destination. It wasn't too far, though under the circumstances they were in she needed to find
an alternate route other than through the palm trees.

"There's a cave just up ahead that's a shortcut to the cave we want to get to on the other side of the
beach. It'll be safer for us to travel through it, seeing as even with the protection of the palm trees
we're still sitting ducks out here."

Shen proceeded to stumble along in Saphira's wake, "wow, she's got a bit more spunk than I expected" he thought to himself after nearly being dragged through the sand. He couldn't help but watch her body though, she moved so smoothly, so gracefully, it was mesmerizing. He found his eyes being drawn to her shapely legs and her curvy bu-"CRACK", Shen winced in pain as his injured arm collided with the rocky walls of the cave's entrance. "I guess that's what I get for losing focus" he thought to himself as he blinked tears of pain out of his eyes.

"Geez, what part of move quietly do you not understand??"
Saphira sighed and rolled her eyes, shooting a dirty look over her shoulder.
"You're going to get us both killed."

She tugged at his arm once again, a little more roughly this time, and let out a soft growl.
Why was she helping him, anyway? Well, she knew why...He was bleeding all over the place!
And if she'd left him he woud have surely died, as reckless as he was. She let out another small sigh.
Sometimes she wished she wasn't so compassionate. So he would have died?
Everyone dies at some point. Yet here she ws, guiding him to safety while risking her own neck.

Though she did have this nice jewel to compansate for her kind actions.

"Look up ahead. See that jagged rock over there?" she pointed, shaking herself from her thoughts and
turning her attentions back to the man behind her.
"Behind it is the entrance to the cave we need to travel through."

"Just a little farther, Just a little farther" Shen repeated to himself as he sprinted toward the rocks. His vision was starting to become blurry and distorted, he was afraid of smashing headlong into that towering jagged rock. He could feel his feet pounding along the sand and the firm grip on his arm, but that was all, that was everything that existed right now, the rock in the distance, his feet and Saphira's hand. As he ducked into the entrance of the cave at a full sprint he came to a skidding halt and immediately keeled over unconscious on the stone floor.
