Bill. Wake up honey. Wake up!
I growned and woke to the sight of Scott and Air staring down at me in concern. I felt comfortable laying in a nice bed. I felt right but I also felt her trying to track me.
I waved them away as I rolled out of bed to the side and looked around. We were in the tower. I shook my head.
“She’s still out there. Tracking me I can’t stay here. I have to-“
“We aren’t in Cyberpunk’s dream world.” Air spoke quickly. “We’re in my tower. “
I nodded. “Your tower is in Cyberpunk’s dream realm. That’s why-“
“‘-Oh no. We’re no longer in my brother’s realm. I can move my tower around. I have no realm of my own. So I move around as does my tower.”
I stared at her. “What’s the beef between you and my mother.” I asked.
Air pursed her lips tightly. “We were friends once. We came into being on a world called Mars, in a city named Gods play land. Once I learned how to travel the realms I taught her but she was comfort in her position there at the time. I left her on Mars while traveled the realms.”
I nodded. “She thinks you and the elders as she calls them are Gods. She must have enjoyed being worshipped by my kind. Is she mother though?”
Air nodded stiffly. “Bill. We’re not gods. We were all made from the same elements as mortals but we’re different and came to be differently. Mara can’t accept that fully she can die just as any mortal man or woman. My brother and his consort are doing battle with them as we speak. I do not how it will-“
“-She’ll worm her way out. She survived my home world being destroyed she’ll escape the battle in some way. How many humans have you changed?”
Air frowned shaking her head. “I didn’t change you.”
“You created me though, how?”
Air frowned again shaking her head. “Mara is limited because she does not embrace the truth of what she is and can never be. She believes a lie. I embraced that truth centuries ago. I can create and bring things into being. Mara is a creator of death. She can give birth but not life. You were her last attempt at that.”
I frowned getting a strange feeling I knew what she was dancing around saying. “Was I born still born?”
Air grimanced. “You would have been but sense I created you before your birth by breathing my element into you then you are what I created you to be. I am not the only dragon knowledgeable enough to do so.”
I shook my head. “I don’t understand why she would attempt something so stupid. For what reason?”
Air stared at me. “To raise an army of mortal slaves to worship her as their goddess mother.”
“Holy shit. The bitch is nuts.” Scott voicing my own thoughts.
Air nodded. “Yes. She is quite a sad creature. But, she also has still a few miss guided children out in the realms I have yet to reach.”
I got up and looked out the window into the endless portals to realms.
“Is there another reason beyond being a nice lady that you breath life into her dead children?’
“Bill.” Scott said. “Whst are you-“
“It’s fine.” Air interrupted. Yes there is a reason. A very big reason. Her children the ones I don’t save. Sometimes are saved or created into beings of dangerous problems that start galactic wars or burn whole planets they become annoyances for the elders. When that happens or if there are signs of it happening in those worlds a judgement is made and a world is sentenced to death.”
I nodded to turning to face Air. “Your an elder, right?”
Air shrugged. “In part. I am, the youngest and lowest in power and I rival no one in power or wisdom. I speak with the head elder over us all. I offer advice and try to make plans to rescue those I can. I try. I don’t always succeed but for you. I tried really hard this time.”
“I like you and in a strange twisted way. Mara likes you a lot though it may not seem that way.” Air said gentle.
“Where we headed?” I asked.
Air smiled. “To another another rescue mission.” She said.
“Can we help?” Scott spoke up for the both of us.
Air looked between the two of us. “That isn’t necessary. This is your home now or I can take you to any-“
I held up a hand. “I think you do need a little help. Unless you think it beneath you to ask for help from mortals.”
Air smiled her lips shaking. “I would be honored to have your help and sense you two are inclined to be so helpful. I want to give you both with something.”
“Two. What about Wolf.” I asked
Scott made a face. “He met a girl so he opted out of the fun.” She said.
I shrugged. “That’s alright. I understand. What’s this gift?!”
Air giggled. “Follow me.” She said whimsically dancing out of the room.
Scott laughed and quickly took my hand and led me after Air. I smiled liking the feel of her. We walked out into another large spacious room. We stopped short and stared at the purple and black beautiful crusier.
Air smiled . “What do you think? I ordered it from my little brother. He makes such nice realm flyers.”
