The dragons... It's always the dragons! The mage looked down upon the valley, all the destruction caused by the dragons. Why, oh why! had no one stopped them? Kimari, a powerful female mage with long golden hair and silvery grey eyes, turned to walk away from the cliff edge when a dragon swept over her head. Where had it come from? She raised her staff and words of a spell formed on her tongue. This dragon had not been there a few moments ago, and Kimari could see for miles in every direction. No, this was a magic-weilding dragon. She watched in terror as the dragon turned in mid-air and flew back towards her. She was young, inexperienced, and had never heard of someone surviving a duel with a magical dragon.

Habadax turned gracefully in mid-air, his powerful wings easily bringing him back around to the cliff. There! By the cliff edge stood a young woman, golden-haired, and clutching a staff. Dax closed his amber eyes, feeling with his own magical senses. Yes, this human was a mage... He swept by again, watching the small figure sway in the winds caused by his vast ebony wings. The little mage looked terrified, and for good reason. Dax laughed to himself, and stretched out his gleaming talons. This would be fun...

Yakoch raised her head above the trees. On the far side of the valley she saw a small figure of a woman surveying the land. She then turned back to her meal. It was a cow, a thin cow granted, but she wasn't all that hungry. She heard wings and looked back up across the valley. A black dragon was now flying around the figure.Yakoch raised her bright white head again.
"Habadax!" She yelled, causing him to wheel away from his target. Yakoch suddenly realised she probably shouldn't have done that. Habadax loved fights and therefore hated being distracted from them and Yakoch was very easy to distinguish being an albino. Her red eyes stood out from the surrounding white scales. Habadax roared at her then turned back to the woman, who had taken her chance and run. Habadax was surely to give chase and Yakoch wanted to watch. She rose into the air and followed at a safe distance behind Habadax.
Kesuashi snuck along the bushes. 'Looks about there is going to be a fight. That albino is a hit target. This aught to be interesting...' She said. She looked down at the small black dragon next to her. 'Well, Miruku, we best right here, safe and sound in the bushes.' She said, sitting down, partially behind a plant not to be spotted. The small black dragon climbed into her lap and began to watch, a blue glare came off of its pitch black scales from the sun, truely a beautiful dragon. It had deep read eyes, always watching. He slithered closer to the edge of the bush.
'Miruku, come back,' Kesuashi whispered, coaxing the small dragon back with her hand.

With a roar, Habadax spun gracefully in the air, his eyes never leaving the fleeing figure below him. He'd deal with that other dragon later, but for now...
The woman mage was struggling over the rough terrain, giving Dax plenty of time to catch up. He hovered overhead, pondering how he should destroy this puny human. Flame her? No, too quick. He wanted to enjoy this.
'Mage!' he bellowed, his oddly musical voice echoing through the landscape. 'I challenge to you to a duel!'
'Bah! How could he... I mean he just lost any pride he may ever have had! Just back down from the fight! Now what shall we do for entertainment around here?' Kesuashi said looking down at the the small dragon. It was walking over to a small pink-ish flower. Inhaling deeply, it sighed releasing fire on the small defensless flower. A slight smile of satisfaction and amusment came across its face. Kesuashi snickered at him as he watched the flower burn.
The dragon in mid-air turned and flew towards a mage. Kesuashi sat and watched... she may have some amusment after all.
'Miruku, come... watch. You shall have to learn skills for when you grow into a mighty dragon, such as them. And you shall be as black as night. A beauty, if I do say so myself. And 'tis I who shall raise you, and you who shall answer to my command,' Kesuashi said, placing another flower in front of the tiny dragon to burn. It did it gladly.
Kesuashi jerked her head. A shadow moved behind them. The small dragon suddenly became aware of it, too. Dispite his size, a got between the shadow and Kesuashi and let out a growl. His eyes glowed a bright red, as if he were possessed, and you could swear he grew twice his size. Kesuashi stood up, the sun shoned into her eyes, sending her into a squint, her brown hair glinted in the sun, the top of the walking stick she held let out a small glare at the top.
A noise came from the bushes to their left; the small dragon faced that direction and seemed to have grown a bit more. Its scales gave off a reddish glow, and lost their blue glare. Kesuashi walked over to a bush and suddenly kicked it. Something let out a howling scream and the tiny dragon jumped into the bush.
'Show yourself!' Kesuashi said at the bush.

A duel? thought Kimari. But I will surely perish! The mage turned to face her terrifying opponent. She would not run from a duel, though her life may be forfeit.
"I accept your duel, O mighty dragon," shouted Kimari so she could be heard. "But first tell me who it is I face."
The dragon smiled slightly. This mage knew how to speak in the presence of a mighty dragon. "I am Habadax, a powerful magic-wielding dragon."
"That I know, Lord Habadax. I am Kimari Silvergaze." She hesitated for a moment. "Lord, I am lacking the knowledge of how dragons duel." She was lying through her teeth, for she was a well-learned and high-ranking mage.
Habadax, like most magical dragons, was a living lie detector. "Foolish mage!" he roared. "Do not lie to me! We shall duel here, right now!"
Kimari closed her eyes and sighed deeply. Her magic was strong, but Habadax was easily twice her strength with magic. She raised her staff and prepared to fight, ready for the end.
'Please, do not hurt me, m'lady! I am but a lowely dragon! I cannot harm a fly!' a small dragon-like thing stepped out.
'What were you doing sneaking behind us like that?' Kesuashi said, backing away from the creature. Miruku stayed back with her, but eyed the creature.
'I-I heard there was a fight... m'lady... I love to see the fights, 'tis what I live for.'
Kesuashi looked down at the creature. She gave him an odd look then walked past him. 'Come, Miruku.' The small dragon followed, hissing at the creature as it passed. She walked through the woods, Miruku trailing closely behind her, nipping at her heals.
Kesuashi appeared out in the open field. The albino was now a bit closer, and the mage and the other dragon very far above Kesuashi. She looked up, shielding the sun with her arm. Miruku suddenly peeped out, blinking from the sudden light change.
