Medalanim flew below the three, hovering just above the tops of the trees. To mainly practice her flight skills, which had become a strict regimen that she had placed on herself since she had returned from exile, she darted between the protruding shafts of the taller pines, sometimes through gaps that had only barely enough room for her body.

She was indeed not in the same physique as she was when she held off many of the Forsworn's dragons, and knew that if she was to have any chance with his agents, she would have to return to her former strength. It would not be easy; a hundred years had softened her muscles and blurred her senses. Yet she knew that with work they can be restored.

Medalanim also conjured spells with each heaving breath, practicing her magic on a small scale. Her control of her magic had drastically increased since Vroengard, however, she only would use spells that required larger amounts as a last resort, as her control over it, and the consequences of it's use, she was unsure of.

The ancient words spilling through her sharp teeth ranged from eliminating the scents of her and the other three behind them, to pushing the wind under her wings to guide her through more challenging groups of trees. All the while she kept in touch with the burning outside source of the wild magic, which she was now able to keep from overwhelming her body for the most part.

All in all, she was preparing herself to fight. She knew that eventually she would be tested against Galbatorix or his agents, and when they did, she wanted to be ready. Soon enough, the forest below began to thin and she grew tired of the magic, so she ceased the connection with the powerful energy of the world.

Medalanim darted through the last of the pines and beat her wings to match Taren's level, flying behind and just to the side of him. The Spine now stretched before them, dark and foreboding, and they were only mere miles from the peaks. Hopefully Keia would speak up when she picked up the trail again. . .

Taren listened to Keia and Lean's conversation with a small, curious tendril of thought. When Lean thought about showing them how large she truly was, he flapped heavily until he was slightly above her and far to the side so her wings wouldn't accidentally clip him when she changed. The bronze watched her closely out of the corner of his eye. He bugled a soft greeting to Medalanim when she drifted up to his level. He could feel her practicing her control over her magic in her mind, as well as her determination to whip herself back into shape. From the sounds of her panting, she was a little tired, despite having eaten earlier. He sent a warm flow of energy across their linked minds, just enough to soothe her burning muscles.

Two deer our next meal says she's as big as that moutain below us, he said, indicating a medium-sized moutain below them. He cocked an eyeridge at the blue, waiting to see if she'd take his bet.

Lean smiled at Taren then closed her eyes. She felt Keia shift down closer to the ground. The ancient black dragoness reached for the magic that coursed through her entire being. She delved into her core and spread the magic through her body, saturating it with pure power. Once she was filled with the ancient magic, she willed herself to grow to what she should be. Her body grew slowly, then more swiftly, like it was fast forwarding the natural growth that her body would undergo over the many years. Her wingbeats soon turned into thundering roars that shook the earth below them and made huge gusts of wind that snapped trees in half from sheer force. The rumble in her colossal chest that had been low and gentle before seemed to reverberate everywhere now. And she was indeed as big as the mountain below them. Bigger, much bigger, if she accounted for the full span of her wings as well as the length of her neck, head, and tail. She swung her gigantic head around to peer up at them with a huge eye, the navy blue iris twinkling with humor. She blinked at the three dragons above her, snorting smoke. This is me as I am supposed to be. she said, and smiled. Her eye alone was the size of Taren and Medalanim combined. She snorted and heaved her enormous bulk higher into the air with two roaring flaps of her wings.

Medalanim snorted at Taren's bet than kept a close eye on Lean as she shifted her form. Just to be safe, Medalanim moved herself some distance away.

Lean's form began to grow, slowly, then rapidly, as she began to engulf her vision with her mass. Eventually, Lean became the size that matched her age, becoming literal miles in length and obscuring the vision of almost all of the ground beneath her.

Medalanim gaped at the utter size of Lean, her jaw dropping slightly from the sight. Even the largest and oldest of the dragons that she remembered before could stand comfortably on her back. I have met dragons old, and dragons large, but you, Lean, surpass even the memories of the oldest Eldunarì I have met. She answered back with a smile, wavering in flight with each thundering flap of Lean's wings. Indeed, only in legend and myth did Medalanim hear of dragons of Lean's size.

However, Medalanim recounted the many rhymes, poems, and stories in her head, and then lost her smile. However, you are fortunate to change your size. Medalanim continued, For the one weakness of your true form is that you cannot sustain the energy to move through food, thus you would eventually fall into a deep slumber forever, according to all of the stories and myths describing the ancient dragons that is. But I have never met one in person that has lived as long as you, so I am not completely sure.

It often saddened Medalanim whenever she thought of things like this. Although true it was that dragons were technically unable to die of age, there still was a limit to their time to truly live in the world due to their growth, with the elder dragons slowly loosing all concern for their body and worldly things, and then eventually falling into an eternal slumber and slowly be covered and consumed into the bowls of the earth as legend states, unless they were somehow able to stop it or change their size at will, as Lean has. It was something that Medalanim could not comprehend, much less imagine herself in the same place, but she knew it would eventually come to pass. Maybe eventually, I will need to use my magic to keep myself small as Lean does, that is, if I survive that long.

Taren chuckled when Medalanim didn't respond to his idea of a bet, then turned his attention back to Lean. Her form was growing slowly, but the change was getting quicker with the passing time. Before long, she was at her full size. The bronze male uttered a choked growl of surprise. Her paws were bigger than he was, and each of her talons looked to be about the same length of the main part of his body. Oh my, was all he said, looping up and around in the air, trying to get higher so he could see her better.

Each flap of her wings was like thunder and made his teeth rattle and his eyes water. The trees below them were shaking like they were caught in the midst of a hurricane. He watched the sight below him for some time, then called out to Lean. Perhaps you should change back now. The signs of your passage are clearly visible, even at this height, he said, watching her mind closely. Medalanim was correct about the ancient dragons, and if they weren't careful, it was possible Lean would slip into such a coma. Although he supposed the chances of that were slim, considering her strange powers.

Lean snorted gently and blinked at Medalanim. Indeed. I don't boast when I say I might be one of the oldest beings in Alagaësia. she said. She frowned slightly as the blue dragoness continued, and nodded her giant head slowly. [b[Yes, that was another of my concerns. My cousin survived because for some odd reason, he remained the size of a two month old hatchling for his entire life.[/b] she knew the real reason behind that, but she would not tell any secrets of her family, though she trusted Medalanim and Taren. She rolled her eye around to look at Taren and rumbled deeply in her colossal chest. Very well. she said, and closed her eyes once more. It took her a bit longer because her body was much more immense and required more magic to run through it so it would change properly. Slowly, her body shrank down to its regular size. After flying for a few moments with her eyes closed to become accustomed to her small size once more, she opened them and smiled. But I am content in the body that I have now, so I shall remain this size until I grow larger. she rumbled.

Medalanim watched with slight awe as Lean shrunk down in size, again first slowly and then rapidly. Medalanim darted towards Lean and glided beside her.

That is good, Medalanim answered to Lean with a smile, But now I think that we have another problem; we probably should hide ourselves and search on the ground for a while, considering that half the Empire was able to see you. Medalanim's voice contained glimmer of humorous sarcasm, but also had an edge of truth. Someone could have easily spotted Lean from many miles away, and it would be only a matter of time before Galbatorix would send someone to investigate. Also I think that we are where we need to be to begin our search.

She tilted downwards and began to circle over the mountains, gradually decreasing altitude before landing on a wide cliff.

Taren watched Lean shrink back to the size she had been when they had met, still as curious as he had been a moment before. I don't think I would ever get bored watching that, he said with a chuckle, tilting his wings so that he was in a shallow, sideways dive. He corrected his wings when he was back beside the others.

I agree with Medalanim, although maybe we'll get lucky and most will assume it was just Shruikan appearing out of nowhere, he said, following Medalanim and a few yards away from her.

Lean grinned at both dragons, banking around to follow Keia and land on the cliff. I'm glad I could entertain you two for a while. But you are right. the sienna dragoness landed on the cliff first and folded her wings to move out of the way for the ancient black. Lean pulled in her wings to land and then Changed at the last moment, rolling to absorb the landing impact like she had done before. She stood and brushed herself down. She looked around to find Keia inspecting the ground close to Medalanim's forepaws. She started to approach, but paused with her eyes wide; at the edge of the cliff, where Medalanim was pretty much standing, there was numerous claw marks, small and thin but definitely there. They had probably been produced when the creature took flight and gouged the marks into the stone with their hindclaws. Lean grinned.

- - - - - - - - - -

Keia snorted and grinned up at Medalanim. Nice job. Though I don't know if it was her, these tracks look similar to the ones I found one the ground earlier. she said, sniffing the ground. She couldn't catch any scent, though there might have been one, but Medalanim's more recent passing had unfortunately masked it for the moment. She snorted her shook herself, thinking that she might try again later. She sat back on her haunches and went about cleaning her foretalons, looking around with her eyes at the little cliff they had all landed on.

Medalanim looked down, and when she saw the claw marks beneath her paws, her eyes widened and she reeled back, startled. Lasta eka! She cursed in the elven tongue, thinking she may have ruined it.

She watched tensely as Keia inspected it and found no scent to follow. Medalanim sighed and hung her head low, Sorry. she said both for masking the scent and cursing so harshly. Last time she remembered doing that was when Solir rather painfully latched on her tail blade.

But immediately when she looked back up, she noticed something, and trying not to erase any more scent that was there, she held her breath as she leaned closer to the marks. These scratches are fresher, Medalanim discovered, but just by a bit. She seems to have bedded her for a year or so before moving on according to the size of the marks. So at least, we are gaining on her trail. Now we need to find where she headed next.


OOC: For anyone wanting to know; Lasta Eka means "Curse me with ill-fate." Kind of like Barzuln for the dwarves, but much more severe.

Taren cocked an eyeridge at Medalanim when she cursed. No, please. Tell us how you really feel, he said with a teasing tone. He walked forward, holding his breath like Medalanim, and inspected the tracks the two dragoness's had found. There's nothing distinctive about them, but... My gut tells me they're hers, he said, looking around at the others.

He hummed happily and backed away from the tracks so that Keia could continue to inspect them if she wanted to. At least we know we're heading in the right direction, he said, sitting back on his haunches.

How about Medalanim and I wait here, while Keia and Lean switch to your human forms and continue to look about? I can hide the two of us with magic, and no one will think anything of two humans wandering around, so we wouldn't have anything to fear from Galbatorix's servants. To be honest, I'm still feeling a little jumpy about who may have seen Lean, and who exactly they report to, he continued, hesitant to suggest the plan. He didn't want them to think he was bossing them around.

Lean nodded and snorted softly, making sure that her breath would not pass over the marks and obliterate the scent any further. I agree with that plan. she said, blinking. She touched the Changing Seal and for a moment she was concealed in flash of light. When it cleared she was in her human form. Her hair was a shimmery, vibrant black that shone in the light. At the moment it was in a thick braid down her spine to the middle of her back. Her trousers were a dark green, and her tunic a light grey, easy colors that could blend in with her surroundings. Keia shifted to her human form as well. Her appearance was pretty much the same as Lean's, except for the hair color, which was sienna instead of black, and the gold bladed weapon that the young woman had strapped to her hip. Keia was a little shorter than Lean, though only by a few inches. Lean pursed her lips,"If someone saw me and reported it, and it reached Galbatorix, he would send Shruikan." she said, scowling a bit. Keia laughed coldly,"You wish, Lee. He'll send Kalo. Galbatorix would order Kalo to come. That assassin dragon could bite whatever he's going after and then force it to come with him back to the Empire. And once he found the group, he would bite me with his poisoned teeth and force you to take me back to Uru'baen for the cure." Lean glowered at the woman,"I prefer to think on the bright side of things, but whatever." she said, and shrugged. Keia stuck out her tongue,"I can take Kalo. He's younger than me and while he may be advanced because of Galbatorix's tinkering, he doesn't have the experience of ninety-five years under his scales." Keia smiled grimly, then turned and walked to Medalanim's side.

- - - - - - - - - -

Keia stopped beside the blue dragoness and gently patted her neck, scratching lightly underneath the scales,"You did nothing wrong, Medalanim. I might have done the same thing too if I had landed from your angle." she comforted, smiling into one of the blue's ice-blue-ringed-with-dark-blue eyes. Keia knelt down and gently touched one of the scratch marks, feeling how deep they were and how cleanly cut they were. She pursed her lips and stood, glancing about the cliff to search for other signs. She shifted, and a faint glint caught her eye, stuffed and almost hidden within a group of stones. She dug with her fingers and pulled loose a large scale, easily the size of her open hand. It glittered a pale white-gold. She smiled at Taren and held up the scale,"Looks like your gut feeling was right, Taren." she said, winking at the bronze.

Medalanim gave a teasing gesture back to Taren before looking back to Lean and Keia. I have fought Shruikan before, and I have dealt him a few wounds myself. Him I know how to fight, and if that black monster arrives I can easily help you defeat him. This Kalo you speak of, his magic is unfamiliar to me, so you and Lean must be the ones to fight him. However if his bite forces you to his will as you say, then I will make sure that he will not get near me. She flashed her tailblades in the air to punctuate the sentence. I will break his teeth before they will sink into my flesh.

When both the dragons shifted to their human forms, a twinge of uneasiness formed in Medalanim's stomach. I can never get used to that. She said to herself.

She looked at the small human that was Keia standing next to her when she reached forwards and touched Medalanim's neck. The light scratch stemmed unfamiliar feelings in Medalanim, causing her to draw back and make a light snarl at Keia as shivers crept up her spine and caused her tailblade to quiver in the air.

I am sorry. Medalanim explained when she caught herself and relaxed, I have not felt a human's touch for a long time, and even longer from someone other than my former Rider. As welcome as I am to your kind gesture, it just makes me. . . Uncomfortable. It is best that you do not touch me while you are human. Medalanim tried to make as kind of a face to Keia as possible, but she could not hold back the shame in her eyes of not being able to accept a mere scratch on the neck from a friend.

Her mood was lightened somewhat, however, when Keia pulled a yellow scale out of the rocks near the scratches. Now they were certain that they were on the trail, and that Taren's niece was closer, judging by the size of the scale.

Alright, it's settled then, he said, breaching the barrier in his mind without a second thought. Illusions were as easy for him to create as breathing was. Within seconds, he had created a simple illusion that hid them from sight and, while it did not entirely hide their scent, made it appear to be several months old. Aside from us being invisible, the whole thing is based on perception. They can smell us, but will think it's a months old trail, they can also hear us and, but for the loudest of sounds, will think it's the breeze. Don't move around a lot and don't snarl or roar, and we will be fine, he said to Medalanim, pressing thoughts and memories into his words so she could see what exactly he had done.

When he pulled his mind back from the magic, Lean and Keia were already in their human forms. His eyes softened and he looked sadly at Medalanim when she growled and pulled away from Keia. He could tell she was ashamed by her actions, but couldn't help them anyway. Since they were already hidden from the other's sight, he reached out and tapped her wing comfortingly with his own, before backing away.

This Kalo, can he sense the use of magic? If he can, my illusions may be of no use. In fact, they might be a hindrance, he asked the dragon-hidden-two-legs, peering at their tiny forms with one eye.

Keia blinked at Medalanim and smiled slightly,"It's fine, don't worry about it..." she said, turning her attention back to the scale. She glanced at Taren,"If he can, we don't know. Lean is the one who helped train him." she said absently. Lean pursed her lips,"I don't know either, to be honest." admitted the ancient black female.
