You closed your eyes as Cyrill pulled you through the water. A couple of times you nearly lost your grip on her slick neck, but you managed to hang on. During one of the moments, you opened your eyes to see another dragon...it looked like a dragon whorling actually.
His body sparkled like a large blue crystal. Then again, it might have been the water affecting your eyes. When Cyrill surfaced with you gasping on her back, there was no sign of the whorling. Not the blue one at least. There was a wyrm like female whorling curled up on the edge of the pool.
She seemed only slightly surprised the see the pair of you pop up from the water. Then again, she probably saw Cyrill's glowing orbs rising through the darkness.
"Cyrill...it seems you've got some sort of parasite from those waters. I told you that water seeths with nasty things." Cyrill snorts, drops you off and dives back with a splash. The wyrm wince as the water splattered. Then she glares as you drip nearby. You step back, and she slithers further away.
"Come now Sleetra, you won't melt if you get a little wet." This came from a male whorling. He looks at you soggy form. "I am Baneth....and you are just slightly damp I see."
Hah, ha. A real comedian. But at least he didn't seem hostile.
"What is that?" a green male asks as he sniffs you leg. "A human, Ober," Baneth replies. "Ah," the green one replied. "That explains why it smells so funny when wet."
You ask them if there was any convenient place to dry off. They pointed down a passageway. "There is a room there, very warm and dry. That should work." Sleetra snorts as you leave, muttering something insulting under her breath no doubt.
