    The world is ended. Humanity hangs by a thread. Pockets on individuals, communities in fortresses, and roving packs of the rest are all that remain. The world burned almost to the ground. Skeletal remains are all that's left of cities and towns. Forests are ashy wastes lakes are polluted with burnt remains on every kind.

    Dragons reign in the skies.

    They burned everything to consume the ashes causing rapid cooling of the earth and starving the land of anything that grows. While ash chokes what remains.

    Marcus was a powerful warrior who was just a simple human trapped in a world of terrifying beasts.True, he's nothing like other creatures in this world from what he's seen and known over time but that's fine with him. All he can do is steel his mind keep in peak physical shape and use abnormally large and heavy weapons to fight. He learned to make munitions and explosives to help his fight against the ever increasing dragon population.

    He doesn't fancy himself a dragon slayer. He doesn't actively hunt them. He tries his best to survive in a ruined world with no way to return. Lewis is his human companion that helps with carrying some of the items during their journey. He travels with Marcus carrying supplies and the mini laboratory. They work and travel together searching for mines and old fortresses to loot.

    Lewis is a chill type of man but occasionally a pretty girl will bring old tendencies back and she would leave with a flirt since he's mostly a ladies man. Marcus never found the ones who weren't. Though they were extremely few in number. Lewis still would get hits on the head sometimes if he flirts too much but Marcus gotten used to his behavior it's not too bad.

    One day they were passing through a rare field of edible plants. They didn't steal any looking for the owner to trade. There was a scream and a roar. Battle instinct kicked in and Marcus pulled his axe from his back. It was a huge war axe made from tempered tungsten before his powers left him. He took off for the hill in time to see a beautiful girl in thick clothes running into the field. He flashed past her towards the roar and at the top he saw it.

    The dragon was easily twice as long as a school bus and twice as fat. Its arms were wings and its face looked like a cross between a lizard a dog and a camel. It spewed flames onto what used to be tightly woven vines of various vegetables. Incinerating them. She turned to look at him as he flashed past

    "NO DON'T ITS NOT WORTH IT JUST RUN! IF YOU GO NEAR IT, YOU'LL DIE!!" and took off not looking behind her. Lewis panted dropping his baggage and fell to the ground

    "Damn it man.. always getting into fights when you know you need to run. Why don't you ever listen most times when a beautiful woman tells you to run?" she heard the other grumble under his breath but she looks ahead seeing this other man standing there.

    Katherine Wilson, a villager had been living with a small community nearby she was in charge of the farm and food distribution. Her brother was in charge of the mine and that was where she was heading. She saw Lewis and stooped to help him yo his feet when they hear a scream inhuman and then a roar and an explosion of flame and smoke. Silence fell and nothing more. She was stunned she knew she heard it die but that was impossible and explosives were so rare that no one really knew how to make them.

    "That damned idiot we only had two left now what are we going to do. Though knowing him that's how he always seems to be during the time of a dragon fight." Lewis grumbled getting up. He was slapped down after griping her chest on his way up and she stared at the hill she just ran over.

    "ITS DEAD. WERE SAFE FOR NOW!!"

    Came a shout then a sickening crunch and the smell of burned flesh began to creep over the area. As she looked over the hill she saw the body of a dragon she fled and the man was pulling his axe out of its head. She guessed he caught it off guard and the hole in its belly was where the explosion hit it.

    "Damned bitch I swear these dragons are animals no sense no drive except burn and eat. What a waste."

    Katherine had no words from what she just say, seeing just one strong man killing a giant three times his size. Just what the heck is going on?! She gulped but decided to say something in order to ask him something.

    "UM EXCUSE ME WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON MY FARM AND HOW THE HELL DID YOU KILL THAT DRAGON!?" he turned to look at her and she saw the hate leaving his eyes.

    "Hmm? Oh I came here looking for food and supplies. I heard of a mining settlement and thought I could find what I need here. As for the dragon... I used my last bombs on it and slashed its throat with my axe. Got lucky she was busy flaming up your fields and didn't care about us humans." He turned away and she saw his arms were bare and muscled unlike most people nowadays. She gulped hiding a blush when shaking her head to snap out of it.

    This was not the time for that and yet, can you blame a girl for dreaming? He must have been training hard to get that way to fighting dragons. Though, she's never seen someone being able to fight one like that. This only eases Katherine's tension out of her body exhaustion hit.

    "Thank you but wont they retaliate? I know Dragons have been coming and going but won't that cause something else to happen later down the road?"She asks and he shakes his head.

    "The body will keep them away for a few days maybe a week enough time to evacuate. Meanwhile the patrols will return to normal and they will return." He was different than anyone else and he knew a lot about dragons. Maybe he could be the one to help the small community and village of it's people from the monsters that roam the skies. She wished she could have seem him kill this one but the thought made feel very impressed with his skills. She did tense up hearing Lewis speaking.  

    "Marcus, we need to go lets return the girl. I don't want to stand around here doing nothing so lets get moving." her looks looks to him and Marcus now knowing his name but she only crosses her arms over her chest hearing him speak.

    "No Lewis, I told you we need to rebuild our ammo and chemical supplies not to mention food. We have to negotiate and hoping to find a place to rest for a little before continuing on our journey."

    "Yeah, yeah, yeah...."

    "Miss can you take us to your leader? I'm hoping we can speak to him about the negotiating."

    "You can call me Katherine or Kat for short sir and yes I can. Lucky for your guys, the elder is my father and after you saved our farm and killed a dragon he may just give you whatever you want."

    She replied calmly and walked ahead of him gesturing for them to follow her.

    "Is it even safe to trust her, man? I mean, she dose seem a little...weird and I've never seen such a lovely lady like herself put her own life at risk. This could tell you something about some women."

    Lewis said to Marcus that looked at him silent before following after her. All he did was shake his head and sigh, following as well knowing how Lewis can be when speaking about a pretty girl. That's how he usually is. The three of them walked in silence as Katherine leads them back to her village where the people were questioning about the dragon they saw and heard. One minute they got warnings of one being near and seconds later, it was dead. It's hard to say either way but at least someone knew about it at a later time.

    This leaves more questions as to what they will find in the journey. What happened and how? Who was the reason the monster was killed so quickly? Minutes passed before the two traveling strangers saw a low village that was near a wide lake with something covering the top so nothing can get into it. Not many could find this place so in some way it's fine and secured.

    "Is this it? This is your village, pretty miss?" Lewis asked Katherine as she nods looking at them showing a gentle smile of being a friend. They were not enemies but friendly strangers. She knew her father always told her never to trust strangers but not all of them were that bad. Well, to her at least.  

    "Yes, this is my home village. My father should still be around here doing his part for daily tasks and calming the people down from before of the dragon warning. Just come on and I'll lead him right to you." she walking down as Marcus follows once more. The people saw young Katherine coming back but got a little silent seeing the two men she brought back.

    Marcus didn't say anything while walking beside Katherine but of course Lewis saw a few young beauties that he was giving a smile. Their was some fine looking women in this village that he winks at a few that saw him to hide a giggle or look away from his eyes. They didn't say anything but look away before he got hit on the head by Marcus.

    "OW! The heck man!?"

    "Focus Lewis. I know you have a thing for hot woman but this is not the time. You shouldn't behave like that when we are in a different village. I mean, seriously?" he saw Lewis grumbling while walking  and rubbing his head from the lump Marcus left but he just mutters to catch up.

    Katherine then leads them to a older like house that had a few people inside but they were talking to a male that seems to be trying to say some plan. That had to be Katherine's father? She only lets out a sigh and knocks on the door to hear the talking stop and open the door.

    "Father? I'm back.." she looks inside as the eyes of the others went on her but on the other two new strangers. Her father looks at her while standing up from where he was, looking right at her. He just looked like her but he only pets the top of her head.

    "Katherine, my child. I was wondering when you would come back." he said seeing a smile on her face but his eyes noticed Marcus and Lewis.

    "And who are these two?"

    "Allies." she said looking at him.

    There was a clacking around them as rifles and other weapons were raised seeing the two. Lewis flinched and bolted behind Marcus. These people were mad and they just showed up in this village after Katherine leads them here. Still remaining calm, Marcus held his arms well away from his body and walked slowly. He nor Lewis was going to be any main threat to anyone here in this village. The same to Katherine and her father.

    "My apologies for intruding on your territory sir. We heard this was a mining village and wanted to know if we could stay fill up our supplies and then be in our way. Or that was the plan before half of your crop or the part we saw was burned by a dragon. We are not enemies or bad strangers; just wandering travelers. So if it's alright to stay here we won't be in the way of anything."

    The news made murmurs ripple around the people and her father rubs his chin thinking about it.

    "I don't know. I've never seen you two in this area and I don't know if I should trust you. Who or what are you. Some slayer walking about?"

    "Yes sir.....that happened to be in the same area where the dragon was." Marcus saw the shocked expressions of some of the people that he looks around seeing them mutter.

    "You...hold on; you saw the dragon? Then that means you were the ones that slayed it? Impossible..Their is nothing in the world that can kill that witch of a monster. Their too powerful and too big for a man your size..."

    That's when Katherine stood forward looking at her father. "No father, Its true. I saw the dragon with my own eyes and fled. However, these two were heading towards the village and we crossed paths. This man here slew the dragon using explosives and his axe. I saw everything and it's true." She said and a few rifles fell most of the group laughed not believing her and only the old and most careworn remained silent.

    "Its true, sir. I got lucky its back was to me and let me be able to use my last two bombs on it. They were the old iron and powder kind back in...umm...I believe it was the 1800s by your reckoning."

    "Hmmm..I see..." Katherine saw her father raise his hand to see the people around him lower their weapons from the strangers with a few walking over to him.

    "I still find it hard to believe you till I get some proof. So, I see you and your companion are to remain here in a cell until we can confirm your story. Until then you have my gratitude for saving my daughter and farm."

    The scouting party was assembled and they left without a word. It was a formality but it had to be confirmed. Marcus and Lewis relinquished their gear and he smirked at the surprised face of the miner who took his axe. They were led to a cell and several hours later the scouting party returned confirming the story.

    Everything that Marcus told them was true. They saw the remains of the dragon they heard of this morning dead. It's remains laying on the ground with some chunks of meat missing. Another dragon must have came and was eating on the body before flying off. During all this time, Marcus had observed the making of dynamite specifically the nitro glycerin soaked in to the clay. He learned as he watched and knew it was weaker than his own and more dangerous since he used gunpowder and iron balls for his bombs.

    Meanwhile, Katherine was there the whole time waiting and watching Marcus with a curious look on her face. This man actually killed a dragon today. A giant female dragon and yet this made her feel like she can learn a lot from him. However, that is when or if her father believes the story and lets him and Lewis out of the cell. Only time will tell.

    True, she always had seen some warriors trying to show up in defeating the dragons that roam this world but this Marcus person defeated the most dangerous one known to man. She already had some respect for this person and wonders if he's that powerful to beat or fight more of them.

    Others thought she was insane but that made her wonder just what sort of traveling he went through but that's another thing to ask. He was strong Katherine admits and she's still very impressed with the knowledge he knew with so many things in his possession. She kept her eyes on Marcus who's still working on what he knows but so far, it's a guess that he was already planning on leaving as soon as he gets the supplies for his and Lewis's travels.

    Her father did notice her behavior but wasn't sure if he should ask. Knowing his child, she was just like her mother who showed that impressed look on her face before starting to fall for him. Seems it was or might be happening to his daughter now because of this stranger that came with her. He still remembers the memories of them together still.

    It was such a lovely sight. She always fell for the strong type of guys so that could explain his daughter doing the same thing here with this Marcus person. If that was the cause he'll have to confront her later on about it just to be sure. When the guards decided to let them go minutes later with a bag full of items and supplies for their journey. Of course Marcus thanks him as he expects them but sees Katherine's father giving a nod.

    "A gift and a thank you for saving my child. From what the guards have told me, it is confirmed you did slay the dragon. It's remains were still where you saved my child. I will say sorry for locking you both up but I had to be sure after the couple of liars that came here with some close of the story you told me. It's better to be safe than sorry." he said.

    "You are welcome sir and I wouldn't lie to you. I know my words might seem like a lie but I tell you kind sir I wouldn't do such a thing. I am glad I was there at the right time for your child." he bows his head to both her and her father as Katherine looks at him then away hiding her expression of a light pink blush on her cheeks. He was also nice and a gentlemen? How sweet.

    "However, stranger, this leaves me wondering on one thing if I may ask?"

    "Please, ask away sir.."

    "Where are you going to travel next? You know about the monsters of the dragons that roam this realm now. Humans no longer rule it but we are now prey or slaves to anyone that can survive out here. I know you slayed a dragon with just an axe but what will you do now?" he said.

    "To answer you sir, the dragons are like beasts they aren't like dragons from folklore. Judging from what each one does, they have their own mind set on something they want or want to claim as theirs. Think of it like treasure as most dragons would do. However now, it's like the female dragons want more than treasure. Now, they want blood." he said when explaining this.

    "They can be baited and killed but I prefer to avoid them like everyone else. As for where we will travel, I'm not sure. I stick to the mountains for iron ore coal phosphorous and sulfur so I can make bombs bullets and guns. Having things you need during times like this is always a good thing so I'm always trying to stay prepared or ahead of the game."

    "Seems you like to plan ahead now a days hmm? I like that in a young man like yourself because most think it's a waste of time but it's not. You never know what monster could be lurking close or one of the female dragons trying to claim another meal. It's always good to stay ahead of your game just in case."

    "Very true words, sir. I like people don't get me wrong on that sir but too many times I have overstayed my welcome and been driven off. I guess in some time others find us dangerous when we only wish to help them. We are all good allies here trying to make as much travel as we can without something wanting to kill us. I know many here are afraid due to the dragons but that shouldn't let you be afraid. Their is a way to fight the dragons to stop them and their destruction along the way."

    He was smooth and confident in his survival and Katherine grew more curious about him. How in the world could someone like him be able to do such a thing? He was a single man; a man that isn't afraid of the dangers ahead of him. Even if his ally is a ladies man, he didn't seem much to fight but work on the ladies. She blinks thinking about that without know that Lewis checking her out.

    She looked beautiful and in good shape. Must be the kind that loves to exercise herself from time to time. A lovely but strong physical form that's ready to help however she could. Perfect for being a wife in the future. During all this, Katherine paid him no mind to be honest. Yeah, he was Marcus' ally but that didn't worry her at the least. She was just happy to find new faces and one that was attractive and nice for someone like him.

    "So either way, the dragons have started to get more and more dangerous. This is something I noticed during my own scouting around the village and behind the old gates that leads out. I wonder if their is a way for us to fight them but we are not like you. You seem like the kind that's done this for a while now but we don't usually fight; we end up going into hiding till they pass. Do you have any idea on how to defeat them? Or at least lead them away from this town." One man said but Marcus shook his head thinking about it.

    "While that seems like the best plan of action, some times it's not always worth the risk. True, you all can fight and battle the dragons if you wish but you need something very powerful to kill them. I was lucky and used my axe to kill the one I saw burning your crops." he mutters thinking about it as he rubs his chin.

    "Though, It's not like that. Dragons are very random creatures that seem to find what they seem valuable and priceless. For now, these female dragons are looking into devouring whatever moves and can fuel them along the road for a long time. That might lead to something else later on like a swarm of them heading down to whatever is food and eating it all up. The dragons in this realm are more vicious and dangerous that I noticed and that isn't a good thing. Who knows what they could do later on in the future because of that? What possible outcome would it bring knowing they can do such a thing. Maybe in a way you all don't see them that's how they are tricky." he said silent while Katherine was a little confused when he said that.

    "That seems like a good ideal towards all this.....understandable."

    "Wait a second father, That don't make sense. I get the dragons are all over the place bring rain of fire to whoever they see. From how they swarm, I don't know about that. They seem to be the kind that only works alone, you know. How in the world can the dragons be more different than the ones that's read in old stories and books? You're not making this up are you?" she said.

    "I wouldn't make something like this up miss Katherine. I know because I've seen a thing or two during my own travels. My ally Lewis will tell you the same thing." he said pointing his thumb towards him.

    "He's telling the truth on that on. Dragons are unlike anything we seen before during the travels we do. Though, those girl dragons can put up a punch if I do say so myself. Marcus here usually see dragons fighting each other for food or goods."

    "So...are they really that powerful? Are they all like this?"

    "No, not all of them. Some of the dragons you see or seen isn't like that or some are not always like that. They are a lot more different...more dangerous than most because they are trying to survive out here during this time. Just to claim their territory from any other dragon that might be roaming in the same area. From what I've seen; they will fight tooth and nail to claim what they want...."

    "They are like animals and every dragon I've ever killed has been female. Not one single male out of 26 kills. I'm guessing the males are in hiding away from the females or they have become over run by the over population of female dragons that is starting to kill the males over time." He muttered the last part but she heard him and Katherine's grew wide

    "The only way to drive them off is to leave the carcass of a dead one out to rot they hate the smell of their dead. Sure dragons are vicious but they do have more sensitive smell thanks to everything that's happened. They can't stand the smell of rotten flesh/meat because it burns their noses and throat."

    "Now that you speak of it, a few dragons do tend to fly far away from the smell of rotten flesh and meat of dead bodies. However, we thought it was because they lost their territory." Her father said seeing Marcus shaking his head. That can happen and yet it leads to more confusion and questions. During this, Katherine had to ask,

    "Hold on a second.."

    "What's wrong Katherine?" she looks to her father then back to Marcus and Lewis.

    "Is that true? You actually have twenty six kills? 26?! You've killed 26 dragons?!!!" She was astonished and thought she heard wrong. Their was no way a man like that could do something like that

    "Umm yes... I have. However, I'm not trying to brag here. I'm sure you all kill them sometimes don't you?" He asks a bit nervously everyone in the room become silent. No one say a single word but Katherine answers it for them.

    "To be honest, no. We never try to attack or fight the dragons because of how dangerous they become. We just don't mess with them and leave them be while staying in hiding. I know or guess you must have fought a lot of them but that's still amazing."

    "But....are you sure? Not one of you tried fighting them?" Marcus asked to see her answer no. Marcus didn't believe it; no one in this village has killed a dragon or tried to encounter them. She did explain it's possible due to the military of major countries fell to their flames and the world governments destabilized and fell into ruin more than 20 years before. She had never heard of anyone killing a dragon since then which is why everyone was so skeptical about him.

    "R..really? None of you have...slayed a dragon here?" he asked now shocked from hearing this. He couldn't believe it. Brandon thought they were trying to hide something in order of not telling him. But judging from their expressions, they may be telling the truth. He looks at them with a nervous expression but Melina sighed looking at them.

    "Well, we couldn't really slay them but you can't blame us for that. Do you know how powerful those girl dragons are? Their more vicious than the others I've seen. That and them taking out all the male dragons in this realm." she mutters that made Brandon more shocked. Did she said that right? The male dragons were dead and only female dragons remain alive!? Their was no way that was possible right? Their had to be one male hiding around here somewhere but Melina blinks crossing her arms to look at him.

    "You can't be serious....."

    "Trust me; I don't lie and it's true. Over the last few months, female dragons have become the dominant leaders of this world. Right now we are just snacks to them with no chance of slaying them. Their are so many now in this realm that no one wants to deal with them since we have no powerful warriors or weapons strong enough to tear through the scales of them." Melina explains while pointing to the wall behind her showing weapons broken or chipped from something. Seems the female dragons have more harder scales than most but if that's the case; seems Brandon weapon should have been broken but it wasn't. He was lucky.

    "................."

    The males never show up... oh no... inglet... this breed... they are... Truly nothing but beasts. My lady it isnt that the females killed the males. Its that there is only one male. One who flies around the world fertilizing eggs laid by females. That means... im in a world without any form of higher power except what we can engineer." Inglet grunted and cared nothing for this his greedy eyes on meli. She was enamoured by brandon and slowly wanting to be close to him forever.

    He had ro dig deep into his mind to remember how to build devices. He decided he would stay and build a society here to help the people survive until he could find and kill the bull. Meli warched him and learned many things. How to make gunpowder,bullets,and weapons. She heard tales of things like this but she didnt believe them until he built an electric generator. It was powered by a cycle that was pedaled by foot and lit metal wires as they turn red hot from the electricity running through them the light was low but remained until the wires cooled down. She gsthered all her ild books from the before times and showed them to him. He explaine dmuch of the meaning behind them and found she was interested and good at science.

    She did ask him a couple questions about what he really did know about this new world. The female dragons running amok or some just feeling grumpy due to not finding the last male dragon alive. The others were killed by them that it made the male not want to be near them. She could get that females tend to be scary if not getting what they want but most are more reasonable. Melina did tell him one day she did see one female dragon but she wasn't as violent like the others. She thought this dragon was too worried about fighting and it was true that she was hiding from the other tougher ones.

    "So you think that because of this, things are only going to get worse?" Melli asked after reading more of the books in order to learn more. She did see Brandon nod his yes to answer her while working on some exploding gun powder.

    "It's just a hunch but that's what my gut is telling me. Things will only get worse before getting better. If that's even possible with this realm." he said setting it down and makes another bomb. "Besides, with how things are going now, I'm not sure what the female dragons are planning on doing. They could be trying to attack everyone that's not what they want and leave this land to burn in their flames."

    They feed on ash you see. And with how burnt this world is they could start killing eac other for food and that makes them dangerous and prone to aggression. Im certain that the carcass will only deter any further attack for a short time. But next time... hee hee we will be ready to bring another down." He sealed the iron ball that he filled 2/3 with powder. He lit the fuse and tossed it down the cliff nearby 7 seconds later it exploded and he smiled. "Good this is a good mix the trick is timing string enough of these together and light them all with a single fuse we can launch a barrage of explosions at them. Worst case scenario they get their wings clipped and we fight them on the ground. Best case scenario we weaken them and finish them off on the ground."

    "And you really think doing this will take another one down?" Melina asked him to see Brandon nod yes. He's already known a few things so this wasn't no different in some cases. He knew the part of it and that would make it seem a little more different in mind.

    "Works every time. Especially if they are hungry. They wont notice a trap when they are chasing down food... or eating." He smiled and started filling more iron balls. She noticed that he was casting the balls from molton iron and inglet was pumping the bellows of the forge to heat the raw ore. When the ore was fully melted the bellows were stopped and ingle poured it into the molds one by one. It took several hours for the iron to cool enough to touch and that time was spent making gunpowder to put in them.

    After a day of work they made 30 fist sized bombs hot and tired both brandon and inglet rest while melli, who mostly filled bombs and watched, turned one over in her hand. As she examined it her father came over.

    "It has been many years since ive seen you smile"

    "Father... i want to stay with them. I can learn so much and... " she stopped herself feeling a hot blush. It was too dark to see and her father didnt notice.

    "Yes dear you could. The one you keep staring at made us a deal. He will stay for two harvest seasons to make up for the crop the dragon destroyed and work the fields with you to earn his and his friends share of rations. And while he is here he will help us work to make this community more secure."

    "Im not staring im just...learning" she stopped herself. She was staring something about him atttacted her and she didnt lie she was learning a great deal. Most of the oldr men who knew metalworking were dead or dying these two knew enough to teach. But that wasnt all. She was facinated by their dragonlore and wanted to learn as much as she could.

    "I know sweetie but either way, with his help we should be safer till were able to fight back. If he's able to, I might even let you go with him or better...taking your hand in marriage." he said seeing Melina stand up quickly to drop the dirty bowls in her hands. He would let her?! That was a bit forward that her father laughed seeing the reaction.

    "We will see but for now, you better finish up and head to bed sweetie. Their will be work to be done." he said turning to leave her be. She only stood there blushing before bending down to pick up the bowls(lucky none got shattered) and begins washing them while her face was heated. Why did her father have to say such things?! However, she wouldn't mind if that was possible. Meanwhile, Brandon was already working and getting so many new made bombs and tools ready that he saw inglet staring at the window thinking.

    "If you keep starting at girls, they will not like that you know. Not unless you want to end up beaten again by the other girls you peeked on in another location." he said to see Inglet turn to face him.

    "No, I don't but I been thinking if it's safe to stay and help these people. They seem to have had it hard with these female dragons. I'm shocked their home was not burned down yet." he said seeing Brandon sigh to set another one down.

    "That is true but I guess their really good at hiding their own to make none see them so easily. Impressive if you ask me." he said about to work on another one.

    "I guess or it could be because of that cutie of the leader's daughter. She seems like a smart one and the second in command here.." he said thinking about Melina again as Brandon was working.

    "Oh her? Well, she seems like a interesting one....with her knowledge and thoughts on things..."

    "I want her" i glet said darkly

    "No." "But i" "no" inglet you are trapped in one form human form. That means if you pursue your old habits when i beat you down yoh will not heal from it." "What do you care?" "People have wants and needs but also self control. Control yourself and never do anything against someones will or i promise you you will not survive" brandons tone was dark and inglet was quelled. No one could hear them. As he thought about her again he wished he could stay forever woth her.

    "I never expect you to care about others feelings like that, Brandon. I get we are traveling from place to place that we get to some location with no problem. Now, we are helping this village due to the female dragons going crazy now. If I didn't know any better, are you-" Inglet started to say but Brandon glares at him to make him shut up. He knew what he might do if he kept pushing him but you can't blame someone for guessing another question. Brandon didn't say anything but looks back down to his work.

    They worked in silence before a knock was heard hours later. The two looked up seeing the door open, showing Melina walking in with trays of food. She walks in being careful to set it down for them and give a gentle smile. That look on her face was cute but this made him stop a blush from showing up.

    "The people of our village wishes to thank you for what you did. So, I cooked up some food for you guys in case you are hungry. A few of the others are doing what they can if you wish for them to help you." Melina said while she smiled looking at him. Brandon looks at the food then clears his throat.

    "We thank you for the food but you didn't have to." he said.

    "It's fine. You helped us so we are returning the favor. I hope you enjoy." she said gently before turning around and leaving them alone once more.

    Inglet watched him and let out a whistle. "You are. You are completeky infatuated with her. Damn you i wanted her." Brandon gave him a hard look that made inglet quell in fear.

    " i may want her but i control myself. Maybe you should learn the same."

    "Where's the fun in that?! You mean to tell me if she was begging you to love her and do so many things to her, you wouldn't do it?! You're crazy. You know I would if she was-" Inglet started to say but stops feeling Brandon's evil glare at him. He really was close to getting beaten up but he decided to stop and just get some of his food to eat. Brandon watches him eat before shaking his head, working again before he would eat. True, he had that feeling of wanting her but at least he was more in control with himself than the pervert himself.

    He didn't say anything but sighed, looking away from Brandon. He was seriously no fun.

    A whome week passed before they heard the powerful wingbeats of a dragon. That meant it was close enough to attack in a moments notice. He assembled his gear he made thanks to the help melli and inglet fave him and took off to face8 the beast.

    The people was watching him go but hopes for him to be safe, even Melina felt the same. She knew the female dragons are growing more dangerous every day but maybe so strong that not even Brandon could beat them. She only grips onto a good luck charm she got from her mother and father before wishing them luck.

    The dragon screamed and there was the sound of explosions raging fire and roars. It sounded like it was thrashing around and destroying everything around it with tail and fire. Several more explosions and another scream that was cut short. Several minutes had passed since the first explosion and several more passed before they saw him. He was panting and supported by a grumbling inglet. She rushed over to help him and together they got him into his favorite chair. Looking him over she found he was only lightly scorched on the fringes of his features and exuasted.

    The scouts reported that the dragon and he had fought after the first bombs ruined its wings. He dodged flame and limb striking openings with his axe and throwing bombs to injure and slow it down. He finished it of with the axe beheading it.

    Many of the people set to work butchering the dragon for the meat.

    Seeing that still creeps Melina out but for now she helps inglet with Brandon as they set him down on a bed to rest. She started to help with any wounds he may have while seeing if their was food for him to eat. Battling all these monsters can take a lot out of someone but she wonders just how could one man do this? Even with so many unstable female dragons out there, he still is willing to fight them. She only wishes that she can help but has no idea how to fight. She can heal and take care of someone but never fight. While working she did feel a set of eyes on her to see Inglet looking at her.

    This confused the young woman but shrugs it off to keep helping Brandon. Inglet just ignored the thought and just keeps looking at her with some hunger in his eyes. He wouldn't show it but Brandon glares at him without Melina knowing to have him stop.

    Even powerless the bond between brandon and inglet made inglet controlled for now. At the moment brandon had commanded him to never let his impulses loose and kf they were too pent up then he had to be alone. Inglet was reaching that point but the command was weak. Inglet wouldnt listen to it with melli who was his type constantly around.

    Brandon was careful but this time when inglet lunged brandon planted his face into the ground with a crack. The broken nose seemed to snap him to his senses and he touched the running blood. "Thanks for that. Odd i normally dont bleed. Its unsettling."

    "It is now you know why mortals get this eay about blood. Lucky for me you are mortal here.
