Guide to pet care: by a dragon

Recommended Posts

Dare poured her a cup of tea. "Oh no. No need to apologize for reacting as such. It is normal when a normal meets a magical like myself. Pardon me, allow me to explain. You see there's all sorts of magical creatures in the world and are often hidden in plain sight. Your lawyer for example is a good dwarf friend of mine. The grounds keeper is a nymph, and the maid is a type of forest sprite that have hooves and tails of various domestic animals. She's very efficient in cleaning and is remarkably fast. She paints her hooves like shoes to hide them. I am a Chinese dragon, and I'm not the only dragon in the world, however I am the only one known in this region. I've built this house with your ancestors and that trading company your family owns. All the money comes from my tears that become pearls. And a few pure gold strands of my hair. We call humans like you normal, for you either have a very small amount of magical capabilities or none whatsoever. Your father was a companion of mine. I only choose a select few of your family to see me and not always in the next generation. " He explained

Tami listened to everything that he said with interest after he had poured her some tea and she had started to drink it. "Oh I didn't know the maid and our lawyer were magical creatures but like you said they hide it well. I do have some abilities but they're not very big ones. I'm telepathic and I have a small control over earth," she said in reply after she had swallowed some gulps of tea so that she could talk.

"Really?" He tilted his head sniffing the air. "Ah, indeed you do. I can teach you to perfect those abilities if you'd allow me. My main elements are air and water, however I am well versed in the magic of earth. I had to create my den somehow.  Telepathy is not my forte, however I know many magicals, I'm sure I can locate a suitable teacher for you. My true name is Dareius Drago. You may call me Mr. Drago or Dare. " He said formally. "I am over a thousand years old, and have been in this area far before it was colonised by westerners. If you ever want anything, ask me. I'll gladly show you around or teach you the history of the area. "

"All of that sounds really good and I'd like to take you up on that offer. Thank you very much Dare," Tami said in reply with a smile before she drank some more of the tea that was in front of her. "This is also really good tea."

"Oh that's one of my favorites as well. How many other magical creatures are there around here? Also is there a way to trade an ability for another one?" Tami said and asked in reply to what Dare said and asked before taking another sip of her tea.

"Well, there's about one sixteenth of the population is magical creatures disguised as humans, however a large proportion of the trees and animals and waters are sprites, kitunes, water nymphs and other nature based magicals. As for trading a ability, well it all depends on the magical or the normal who has magic in them. Most abilities such as making fire or controlling water are channeled through tools to make it easier to control a element for smaller or weaker magicals these tools can be traded for others, often magic imbued by a sorceress or witch, maybe a wizard, nymphs and nyads can create things only belonging to their element. Dragons like me have no need to make these tools. Some collect them just because they are often beautifully designed and well crafted, others do so to sell for more valuable items that they fancy. 

 

As for a natural ability, such as your telekinesis, can not be traded. You see, each creature has a element they belong to. Fish, silkies, mermaids and other water dwelling creatures are of water. If they have magic, it will be affiliated with water in some way. Phoenix, kitsune, some western dragons, and creatures who thrive at volcanos or near a heat source are of fire. Moles, dwarves, burrowing animals, forest dwelling creatures, tree nymphs and trolls are earth. Some fairies, aure nymphs, harpies and birds are air. They can be one or two elements they could control that they are known for. My dragon species, the eastern dragons are born in water, live in rivers and control the weather. My two elements are air and water. Earth is my third strongest, and I have to concentrate hard to make fire or use a tool to do so. Fire is my weakness. I can heat water to remarkable levels, but I can't produce flames like my western kin. "

Tami listened to everything he said with fascination and interest while finishing drinking the tea in her cup. "Oh all of that is good to know including the bit of me not being able to trade my natural ability. I was just curious about that. How did I come across the ability to control earth if I don't have a tool to help me, though? As far as I know dad wasn't a magical creature or maybe he was and didn't tell me," she said and asked in reply before setting her cup down on the table.

"Your father was definitely normal. Your mother was hardly around when I was here. So perhaps she was some nature spirit.  You probably have a stronger connection with the flow of magic because of someone on your mother's side. " He said tilting his head. "I wouldn't be surprised, dragon friends have a aura about them that some magicals find appealing. "

Oh and that's interesting. I remember her being around for some of my birthdays growing up but it has been a little while since I've seen her. She was probably at the funeral but I don't remember seeing her when I was face timing my friend. I have seen a few of my family from her side of the family but it's also been awhile since I've seen them last. Like maybe a month at most," Tami said in reply to everything he said before pouring another cup of tea.
