CrossWinds: Trickler Gig
"Takari, Nelia." Kur growled as she flopped down next to them, growling and she narrowed her eyes at them. Takari raised his head at Kur blinking curiously and he cocked his head at her asking, "What's up? Is there a problem right now, Kur?" "It's more than a problem, Takari." Kur growled at him; He nodded his head and sighed getting right up as he closed his eyes and opened them. He turned his attention towards Kur and his arms crossed over top of one another as he spoke "Lay it onto me." "It's more like a couple problem, Takari." Kur explained to him. He blinked in response, cocking his head to the side as he stared at her. Kur nodded without hesitation before looking around the warm sands and asked, "Where's your mate, Nelia? She's suppose to be here with you right?" "She is," Takari responded, raising his claw onto the horizon adding, "She's over there playing by the surface of the water." Kur blinked and glared over to Takari before sighing.
"Alright then, Takari" Kur growled at him. Takari grinned and nodded his head at her while she handed him a black envelope and whispered to him, "Do not let anyone else see this, do you understand?" "Of course," Takari nodded confidently as she smiled and stepped back from him. Spreading her wings, she fled out of sight as Takari growled and tilted his hat grinning confidently to himself before turning to Nelia. They're in the pier beach, closest to the docks nearby. Where the white colorful buildings stood in their wake, Takari breathed a sigh of relief long before waving straight to Nelia who turned towards him and blinked; wondering as to what he had wanted. She fled over towards him and stopped while she asked, "What's wrong?" "We got a mission from Kur," Takari growled, Nelia sighed in disappointment before protesting at him "Isn't doing lot of missions is enough Takari? I mean allow us a break every once in a while you know." She claimed, Takari chuckled as he lowered his claw over to the top of the envelope ripping it apart. Nelia stepped forth closer towards him as she dug her claw into the hole of the envelope and grabbed a white piece of paper.
Startled, she brought it into view. She gazed onto the paper, noticing that it wasn't bend or folded into anything. For the paper wasn't a standard piece that we've seen in every day usage. "This… This paper is different," Nelia responded to Takari. She raised her eyes onto Takari, noting his surprised gestured and she blinked cocking her head to the side; she asked him "What's a matter Takari?" "Be a dear…" Takari trailed and motioned for her to turn the paper around. She blinks and shakes her head, laughing. Catching the attention of other citizens around them, Nelia stopped and decided to humor Takari by turning the paper over. However, it wasn't something that she had suspected. As she read it over, she gasped as well then raised her eyes over to Takari who nodded confirming what she had read wasn't interchangeable or rewritten. Nelia frowns in response and shakes her head before bowing her head down onto the sands below them. She asked Takari, "Who in the world would do such a thing? To steal an egg in the city of London" Takari had no response, but instead stared onto her while she makes a fuss.
He sighed his words were to himself as he pondered over the simple topic that both of them were on. "It's very unusual for someone to go around stealing an egg like that… However-" He snapped his thoughts as his eyes lowered down onto the paper itself. He gulped nervously as he grabbed the paper again, reading the message again over repeating itself into his mind. He stopped over one simple word. Something that he himself possible couldn't get himself out of even if he had tried. "This cannot be possible," he pondered showing his fangs; he wanted to rip the paper to shreds just as Nelia had done during the crossover. However, doing so would forfeit the deal they had with the minister and this job wasn't something he rather give up easily. With a desperate sigh, he snarled and closed his eyes. "Guess I'll have to break it with her then…" He muttered to himself, loud enough for his and his mate's ears to hear. Just as he had suspected, she turned to him her ears and flickered and he smiled as he broke the news to her.
In a moment, Takari thought he had reason out with her. However it seems though, he hadn't. With his mouth firmly shut close by Nelia's claw, he growled showing his fangs as his wings furiously flapped against the protest of Nelia but she smiled at him without hesitation before speaking, "Shut up Takari." She let his mouth free as he stepped back staggered as if he was seeing stars. He growled, he wanted to shut her up too for doing that back to him; however he let the anger feeling deep within him to disperse as he sighed, he closed his eyes and responded straight onto her "You're right," "But the egg…" She muttered before looking back onto him. Takari spread his wings and smiled faintly. Stepping forward closer towards her, he nodded confirming her thoughts possible anticipating what she was going to say. As she sighed, she allowed tears to fill her eyes. She wanted anger her body had tensed up. She growled and her claws sharpen she looked up towards Takari and nodded her head. He smiled in response before spreading his wings, Nelia did the same and flew off straight to the heart of London.
The city was London was very bright indeed; with the sun beating down onto the wings of the dragons. The winds began to blow, underneath of Takari and Nelia as they smiled though thought differently on the subject at hand. Takari knew that she wouldn't give up not without dying into the arms of their own hatchling and he respect that at all; he smiled and said nothing. Tilting his hat downward as he spotted the building, he motioned towards Nelia who nodded and dipping down onto the grounds below of them. There, they landed behind the minister and the Deadhowl's Leader, Shinrai Blizeon. He was rather tall for someone his age; Shinrai is about twenty-one years old. His wingspan was ten feet the same height as to how tall he was. He was an excellent strategist and being friendly to everyone around him, enemies and allies alike. Takari grinned and walked forth, making his footsteps louder so the two would know his presences. Shinrai and the minister turned about waving straight onto them both.
However, Shinrai stepped forth towards them before the minister. Raising his claw at them both, Takari and Nelia waved back raising their wings in respect towards the leader of the Deadhowls. Shinrai bowed raising his wings back onto both of them before taking his spot with the minister and he spoke "I've see you've known Shinrai Blizeon for a while eh?" "Known him?" Takari grinned, "he was my sparring partner years ago. So it's really to say that we have mutual respect towards one another," "Takari…" Nelia growled nudging him playfully as he laughed "Sorry." The minister, seeing this, smiled as well towards the two of them before dropping the act. "So you two got Kur's message yet?" "Indeed sir," Takari and Nelia barked at the same time. Shinrai stepped forth and pointed at the two of them, "So you two know of the egg right?" "It's ours isn't it?" Takari hesitated, folding his wings downward while he waits for the minister's reply. He nodded slowly, Nelia growled gripping her fangs as she narrowly stared at the minister, "Let me have at them, I'll kill every one of-" Takari stopped her before she could throw insults at the inks.
The minister nodded and stepped aside, nodding to Shinrai who cough grabbing the attention of the two "So as always," he says turning to them both as his purple wings raised spreading apart from one another as his eyes narrowed towards them "Here's what we're going to do." Takari and Nelia nodded in silence, standing up straight while watching Shinra explaining their method of attacking. For after a few minutes or so, Shinrai concluded with "Is there any questions you two?" "No," Takari responded, fully understanding the crisis here at hand. As his wings flapped eager to kill the inks and their commander, Shinrai nodded and turned to Nelia who also shook her head as well. With the well response from the two, Shinrai backed off and raised his wings allowing the two dragons to compelled into their mission as Takari and Nelia smiled bowing and raising their wings again back towards him. They stepped back from Shinrai and the minister before flying off south towards the water regions of London.
In the mists of the night, they landed onto the rooftops. Takari smirked and stood up, walking around he wondered about the best spot for them to hide in. He continued to walk until he stopped, his wings flapped as he turned his attention towards Nelia who nodded and walked towards him. They were somewhere in the heart of the rooftops, having known of the spot they're going through. Nelia dropped down onto her knees and growled; she then raised her claws and lowered them touching the surface of the rooftops below her. Striking against the metal wood standing underneath of them, Nelia turned to Takari and nodded his head as she clawed at the spot revealing to them the darkness hiding underneath. For Takari stepped forward and dipped inside the hole, disappearing well into the darkness. He landed onto the metal bars underneath of him and stopped; knelling himself down and spread his wings his eyes scanned around looking for any enemies around the place. He was surprised that there wasn't anyone around.
he heard a sudden sound behind him. Turning his head around, he spotted Nelia who grinned at him having land on the same metal bar that he was knelling on. He turned himself and grinned, meeting face to face with Nelia. She whispered at him, "What's next?" "Well…" Takari responded without hesitation, as his eyes turned darting straight to the grounds underneath them. He raised his eyes back to Nelia and smiled, holding her face with his claw he whispered back, "We wait." "Alright," She nodded and spread her wings before looking down onto the grounds below them. They waited for a few moments; there was a sound escaping into the ears of the dragons. As they turned over to the left, there they spotted the Minister standing alone with two bodyguards behind him. Takari smirked confidently as he watched the minister takes three big steps and stopped; before raising his eyes up onto the rooftops he called out "Inks! Show yourself, I am who you had wanted, am I right?"
No sounds were in reply. As if that the entire warehouse was abandoned, Takari gulped nervously and raise his sharpen claws up before his eyes. There was more silence before the minister called again, "Inks?" "We heard you. We heard you." Something spoke unexpectedly, catching winds of the dragons and the minister; as all eyes turned to the right. The doors opened and there before them were the inks. It was a group of small people covering themselves in slime, with their mask covered up onto their eyes. They stepped forward straight towards the minister before them and stopped. Takari motioned Nelia who moved in closer towards him, their wings spread apart as their eyes looked down staring into the foreheads of their enemies. The leader of the ink stepped forth and barked, "Minister, welcome. Now if you would be so kind to hand yourself-" "We want the egg, ink." The minister growled back, raising its pointer at them "Now, we know you have it. We won't stop pressuring you without-" "We got you we got you." The ink smirked before snapping its fingers.
In the distance came the four inks. Out from the door they came, each of them holding onto the edge of the pillow and in the middle of it was the egg. "There!" Nelia whispered, pointing onto the egg as Takari growled nodding his head; his sharpen claws waiting for the deaths of anyone that touches his hatchling. As he narrowed, he waited patiently for the minister who stepped forward towards the ink and smiled, "Good; good." "So we have a deal then?" The ink asked; there was silence. The winds blew calmly overhead as it entered into the abandoned warehouse. Nelia shivered and flicked her tail to the side. As her wings folded to keep herself warm, they heard the minister response towards them "Yes. However…" his mouth grinned even wider as he added, "I have a better idea." "And what is that 'better idea' you speak of?" The minister grinned saying nothing in response, for his hand was raised and snapped. For in response, Takari and Nelia spread their wings and fall down onto the unexpecting inks. As chaos rings among the ranks of their enemies, the ink growled and rushed at the minister however Shinrai was able to knock him out very quickly before he does anything drastic. With a smile, the minister proclaimed victory as the dragons and the Deadhowls roared.
