Dot's sat on his bed on the other side of the room. He was looking out the window and over the vast building's and tree's that stretched pass them. I always wondered what was on his mind, but he never spoke, guess I'll never truly know. The sunset was beautiful in this place, it's orange and yellow hues gleamed through the buildings. "So what do you think about this place?" I asked him, hoping for an answer, a direct answer. All he did was shrug his shoulders and continue to look out the window. So that was all I got out of him, I laid in my bed, although rather uncomfortable because of the machine on my back. So I decided to take it off. The screw's drilled out of my back, as metal tube's unhinged from me as well. I never liked looking at that thing, while it's on me, and while it's off. Although as much as I get annoyed by it, I find my self letting it reattach to my back, dunno probably some natural instinct. Now I could lay on the bed comfortably, but now there was blood all over my back. This was going to be a long night.
Morning slowing came by, waking me and Dot's. Dot's grabbed his gun and harpoon holster's, I looked at my mechanism. Then the thought that I had no electricity running through my veins unnerved me. So I sat down and put my back against the machine, the screw's dug into my skin and the tube's attached to the massive hole's in my back. It then locked in, and stayed solid, it was part of me, that's why I couldn't leave it. No matter what, it was always going to be part of me.
We walked down stairs, and found Rebet already talking to the prime ruler. "Hey guy's whats up?" I said in a macho tone. "Oh just Rebet here taking order's for a solo mission that's all." The Ruler said, my jaw dropped. So Rebet get's a solo mission, does he not trust us?! This wasn't acceptable. "So, ah awesome!" I started sarcastically, "Rebet way to go, getting that solo mission and all." I continued giving him a shove on the shoulder. "Why thank you Smile's, I here this is going to be a very important mission." Rebet replied, in an almost happy tone. My teeth cringed, he doesn't even know when some one is being sarcastic. "Oh well, not that you've discussed Rebet's solo mission then where's mine." I said with a huge smile on face, and I also kicked Rebet away. The Prime ruler looked confused, then he smiled as well. "I see Smile shock, fine here's one that's just as important as Rebet's mission. But it's tough, I chose Rebet for the other because he's a machine. He doesn't care what happens to him. But your an organic life form. But if you insist on doing one here you go. There is a ware house not far from here. It has some keeper's during night, they have something of value that an help us defeat are enemy before thy get to big of a threat." I couldn't help but smile wider, "I can really do this!?" My voice cracked while saying that. The ruler had covered his ear's in pain from my shriek. "Yes, you can really do it. But remember it's a solo mission. Which mean's no back up, got it?" He told me, I held my hand to my forehead, to solute him. "I won't let you down!" I then ran off, I had till night to do what ever I want.
I went out side, fresh air was all around. The breeze was great as well, "Heyo!" Winter wing called behind me. "Oh it's you," I said, still in suspicion about her. "Why do you act like this around me? With you rolling your eye's and your crude voice." She said to me, her voice sounded concerned. "I just..." I didn't know what to say, I had no real reason to act like this to her. "I'm sorry, I just don't know, your actions lately have been strange, from your tone of voice. To your consistent eating." I replied to her, "I could have sworn I told you I don't know what got into me. Or at least something down that line." She said, I stopped arguing. There was no point it was Winter wing alright. "Well then, I'm sorry." There was a moment of silence, "So can I go with you?" She asked, "where?" "I thought you going out side." She continued. I looked at her, "C'mon," I said.
We walked into town, the buildings looked huge, and had very distinct textures. Some had water fall's coming from them, while others had tree's growing on the side of them. Although it was hard to walk through town without people staring at us. All of them being human, for these were still human state's nonetheless Winter wing and I continued walking.
There were shop's all over the place. One of one of the shop's read "TWIG'S AND BUSH CO." And another said "BERT'S PTERANODON TRAINING!" The shop keeper at that one Eyed Winter wing the whole time until we passed. "That man gives me the creep's," Winter wing whispered to me.
I enjoyed looking at other shop's and business's. Although there were a lot of animal training one's, one man hopped in front of me and said,"Hey buddy! I see you got a dragon there." He smiled "If ya need any help with him call me, The name's Stan, Jame's Stan." He put a thumb's up and continued to smiled. Winter wing didn't seem to happy with him. But she refused to speak. "So how old is he? And is he really a he?" Stan got curious enough to pick up Winter wing and look under her, but before he did, she smacked him good in the face with her tail. "Alright then," he was still smiling, "Definitely not a male." He said rubbing the right side of his face. I looked at him, "She doesn't like being manhandled." I said putting my palm to my face. "Oh right, sorry about that girl." He said calmly putting Winter wing down. "Well remember if you have any trouble with her, call Stan, James Stan! Dragon expert." He held a thumbs up with a big grin on his face, then he walked away. I looked at Winter wing, "If any else pick's me up, I'm freezing them on the spot." She said. I chuckled, "I'll be there to laugh at the poor sucker." I replied to he. We kept walking along.
Finally we reached an antique store. Some where were people wouldn't stop to ask me, "Pet training," or "Dragon daycare." I could tell Winter wing was even more relieved though. We walked into the store, or at least Winter wing walked in first, for I had to hold the door open for her. The store was like a small convenient store, just with antiques instead. The place was decorated with many old looking object's. There was some chairs in the front Window with Bone's planted into them. And on the right of them was a table with a crystal ball on it. "Hey, I wonder if there's a fortune teller here?" Winter wing said, "I doubt it, Fortune teller's prefer wood's and ice-y biome's nowadays." Winter wing;s face dropped. "Way to keep the mood Smile's," She said, I laughed "I'm just a bundle of joy." We looked around the store for interesting items, anything really. But nothing seemed to catch the eye, or at least my eye's, Winter wing was all over the place. "Where's all of the technology?" I asked, clearly an employee heard me, sense a man with a red suit came up to me. He had a smirk on his face, and he wore a name tag on his suit. It read "Hello! My name is, Jenard." The man spoke to me, in a cheery voice "Hello! My name is Jenard!" He yelled happily. "I heard something about technology?" He asked, before I could answer he dragged me with him to a certain corner. There was computer's and old fashion weaponry all over it. "I know it's not much, but we are an antique store." He said with a smile. he waved his hand over the pile of object's, "This here," he started, picking up an old 2055 Tesla Rifle, "This baby can shoot up to four hundred yard's with a volt punch of fifty thousand!" He said, "Really!?" I got excited, because it was an antique, for a gun that old if it could still fire like that it must be worth the money. "No," he stated, "but it used to be able to do that!" He smiled at me. "So it's not worth my money?" I asked, the answer was clear, his facial expression said it all. "It's an antique sir, if it still fired like that we wouldn't have it." He put the gun down. "I'll stay here looking at this stuff," I said to him, "you can go help other costumer's." I shooed him away. But he just stood there, that's when it occurred to me that there was no other costumer's in the store. Only Winter wing and I, and I didn't know what she was looking at. "Okay, just go attend the store then?" I said to him,"Your not my boss sir," he said smiling. I was getting annoyed by his presence, I had to get rid of him some how. "Hey do you think you could ah," I quickly looked around the room, there! A storage room was in the far back. "Check the storage room for more thing's like these?" I started sweating, what if he didn't leave, it'd drive me insane. "Of course sir, right away!" He started to walk to the storage room. "Finally, I can look at these in peace," I whispered to my self. "Oh hi'a there!" The sudden exclamation made jump and hit my head on a chandelier.
"Oh, sorry, sorry! Are you alright Smile shock?" It was just Winter wing, "Ah yes, fine," I put my hand to my head, "Ow," I said.
My head seemed to have a small bump in it now. "I'm so sorry Smile shock, I just wanted to say hi," she started. "No, no it's fine," There was a pause for a moment. "So, what did you find?" I asked, she used her head to signal for her back. I saw a bag laid over her, "a bag?" I asked in mere confusion. "Yes, a bag, what can I say, it look's nice." She said rather prideful, she had a point, it was a purple bag, with dark green crystal looking pattern on it, the bag looked to be big enough to carry five dictionary's. So it wasn't the biggest bag in the world.
I looked back at the small technology stuff they had, something caught my eye. A hologram Jammer, these were used a long time ago, or at least this model, nowadays it was more of a game for teenager's who liked to rap while a hologram is getting distorted. I guess that's what they call "HIP" like hell how should I know, I can't even remember when I was a teen. The model was just a little older then the Tesla rifle, it was made in 2053 instead of 2055 these were some old machines. Probably had there prime day's already though. Winter wing looked at the Hologram Jammer, "Strange device, what does it do?" She asked, I looked at the little bronze piped box. "Okay, let me explain?" I said, "This thing used to be able to connect radio signal's, these signal's held the earlier version of our holograms. These were used for easy communication during war's and what not. Although certain people didn't want the enemy to be send note to each other Via hologram. So the Hologram Jammer was made to disrupt the signals and made them rather hard to understand. It would cause glitching, voice distortion, and even a communication break down, completely making Holograms useless. Although these thing's aren't worth talking about much any more." I put it down, "so you buying the bag?" I asked her, she (tried) to look at the bag, "Yeah, just about." So we went ahead to the front desk, "Sorry I looked all over the place for more stuff, but it was no where to be found!" Jenard said, "It's alright, we're just going to buy this bag and be on our way.
It wasn't that late when we got back out side, the sky was rather bright and the low amount of clouds made it clear.
"Well I'm hungry, how about you?" Winter wing started, "I could use some food I guess." I replied. We walked down to some kind of restaurant. The people there of course were all human, making Winter wing and I the odd one's in building. The place was nice looking though, I'll give the people that one. They had nice candle light's on pillars of stone, they even had small water fall built into the wall.
We were seated at booth (It generally made me feel safer rather then being in the open.) A waitress came by and asked "What would you like to drink?" Generally I was hesitant, I didn't really care about much, "just ah Water please, no ice." I said, Winter wing looked up to the waitress, "Could I have a cup of ice please." She said, the Waitress looked at her confused, "just... Ice?" She said, Winter wing nodded. "Yes please," she then smiled. The waitress left for the drink and cup of ice. "So, for the most part, when do we contact Odd-um?" Winter wing asked, I looked at her. "I don't know, when ever we get back I guess. Who knows maybe Rebet already did so." I twiddled my thumbs a little in boredom. "Alright," Winter wind said, and that was it. She started humming something, but I couldn't tell what it was she was humming. I looked through the menu looking for anything to eat, the food looked good, sauteed steak with Terra salad on the side, and a pound of sauteed mushrooms. That sounded good, except for the salad part, there was no reason not to get it, I'll just give the salad to some wandering herbivore I see. The waitress came back with my water, and Winter wing's cup of ice. "So, any idea's on food?" She said to us,"I would the sauteed combo please," I said to her, she turned to Winter wing, "and you miss?" Winter wing looked and looked and just wouldn't stop looking at the menu! "I'll take anything raw, maybe a fish or something." She said, the waitress probably gave up trying to understand Winter wing.
Of course Winter wing's food came first, "this is some good raw fish." Winter wing said, just by looking at her you could tell she enjoyed eating it. Although every one else in the place eyed her like she was insane. "So," she gulped, "how do you think every one at the station is doing?" I looked down, "I don't know, I just want my food," I soon did get it, and it was delicious! (No full detail, just know it was good.)
We walked back to the prime ruler's place. Winter wing passed out on a couch in the room where we first ate at. And I sat next to her, to tired to stand. "I think I'll catch some Z's as well." I said, and went to sleep with my arm's behind my head.
