“But, as luck would have it, the King managed to almost literally ‘bump into’, a heretofore unknown kind of Dragon. A Silly one. She was considered silly by her fellow Dragons because she acted in silly ways. She did such silly things as refusing to take over the family hoard as was expected by her mother.

Soon, Cria had started using her tail tip to ‘inspect’ me as well as her hands, and I noticed that she was now blepping with her tongue, also she had curled her tail around my feet, and that she was now standing REAL close to me.

“Uh Boss, I’m starting to feel a little uncomfortable here. Could you back off a bit please?” She just looked at me in my eyes, and shook her head ‘No’.

Welcome back!

What’s that? You found a job in the hotel? That’s great! I guess that means you’ll be staying with us for a while. If you haven’t already, I would suggest you pay a visit to the sixth floor and open an account with the hotel’s bank. Surprised? Considering everything else we have here, a bank isn’t all that surprising, now is it?

Whatever you do though, please don’t head up there through the elevators or stairs near the back of the hotel. If you do, you’ll end up at the ‘Snow Peaks’ section of the floor, and unless you remember to bring a sweater then you might freeze your fingers off. I’m sure one of the yukki-onnas are bound to let you in and warm up before that happens, but they might expect you to repay the favor.

It’s located closer to the front end of the hotel, near the 200’s. Oh, you’re going up right now? Good. Glad I could be of help. Have a good day, and thanks again for staying here with us here at the Covet Corner Hotel.

“Frazziss. You’ve got to let me go.” I beg of her.

“Please, I can’t hold on anymore. It’s just too painful.” And it was. I tried, I tried so very hard to hold on for her. But I just wasn’t tough enough.

The tears in her eyes that had been threatening to flow, did so as she closed them in anguish. I could see them course down her face, tracing the outline of those sweet cheek scales that I had lovingly stroked so many times.

Sobbing, she opens her eyes again. It breaks my heart to see the tears of the tortured longing in her face shining forth with a desire for something more, something unattainable.

I try to gently pull away from her, but she refuses to liberate me as I sit there on the edge. Instead, she tightens her grasp as if she could make me stay with her forever.

“Please.” I whisper one last time.

Slowly, reluctantly, she loosens her grip. She’s finally facing the fact that despite all of her wants, all of her desires, there were some things that I just couldn’t give her.

Then at the last, she releases me.

I turn my head away so as to not see the agony that grips her mournful face. I move my legs over the edge and face the gulf that lies before me. I gauge the distance, hoping that I might not miss the mark of the stone that lay so far beneath me. I also hope that she wouldn’t pull me back again. Yet, somehow deep down, I knew that I could trust her not to.

I don’t look back, for if I did, I wouldn’t be able to do what I have to next.

My ears shriek with her anguished negation, as I propel myself over the edge and down into the vastness that lay below.

But, my mood was elevated when I observed the sun peeking through the endless clouds for a few seconds.

I just stood there for a couple more hours observing what I could of the city and waiting for a repeat viewing of the sun. Eventually, Afrodille joined me in silently watching the view. It seemed out of character for her to do so. But, it was good for my mood to have some company.

When I mentioned to her my witnessing of the sun, Afrodille became anxious. According to her, such a sighting of the sun was locally known as a “Whisper of Dusk”; and was considered a bad omen to the one who had observed it. She asked me to be careful that day. I took her concerns serious and assured her that I would.
