There was no denying that today would mark a shift in their relationship, however innocent it had started off things would never be the same for them even if they themselves didn’t actually realize that as of yet. The feeling that courses through her when he licks her nose playfully courses down her spine all the way to the base of her tail threatening to make her toes curl, it is something so different and yet a welcome change all the same. She tilts her golden head to keep her icy blue gaze locked on him as he plops down next to her and responds a bit vaguely, but as he continues she rolls to her side with her wide paws pressed into him so she can watch more closely.
Golden ears prick forward with interest as he mentioned once considering placing himself up for the position of heir, something she had not thought about until now. He was older than his sister Nymeria, but she had always assumed because she was a girl she had been chosen as heir even though Rhaegal’s sister Kalseru was older.
He rolled to his side so that now their almost equally lanky legs intertwined and they could stare at one another across the cool surface of the rock. Her eyes widen slightly has he turns her question around and onto herself, blinking slowly she thinks about it and for some reason the answer send her heart racing the same way it gets when her adrenaline is up in the middle of pulling a prank. She bats one of her banded paws at his own for a moment almost distractedly as she works up the courage for what feels like jumping off a cliff and into a bottomless ocean.
She stepped up towards the ledge.
A deep inhale
Stepping off the ledge now.
Almost nervously she looked back up into eyes that swam with red and green, eyes that she had known since she was a young pup and waited anxiously to see how he would reply as her stomach felt like it was freefalling.
