Khyaber remained completely silent and tense as the talk between the group took place. The leader of the rider group let out a sigh and waved from his men to to go back before he too with his dragon began to turn to leave. "Well. I'm glad to know Lady Kalista is indeed safe. Welcome home. And uh. You too. Mr... Ciren?"

"Cyrus!" Kalista quickly corrected almost in a defensive tone causing the man to laugh some. "Apologies, welcome home Cyrus." He finished before he began to fly back waving off the men at the walls as he got closer to back down. The men at the walls did just that and began to dismount their large weapons and revert back to their patrol.

Khyaber let out a quiet sigh of relief, before he once again began to fly toward the castle. When he flew over the walls the see the hundreds of thousands of buildings, his eyes widened some. People were everywhere. Though just as he was curious as surprised, so were the people below. Some would gasp and move away from the shadow he cast as he flew over. Others would point in awe. A wyvern was a rare sight. Only few really ever saw them. Only hunters or defenders of the kingdom really encountered them. Khyaber would definitely become the talk of the kingdom.

"Where should I drop you guys off?" He asked as he hovered above the small and large wooden and stone buildings.

Cyrus wasn;t even going to bother correcting the guy when Kalista suddenly did it for him. he waved as they let him by, though the lead dragonrider evidently planned to escort them. Cyrus looks around, it was so different from up here he had to think for a minute to get his bearings. " forward and to the left slightly, lets head directly to Kalista's estate. It's a very large stone building with a lot of open space, unlike the close together buildings here." he talks the Wyvern through getting there, pointing the place out once he recognizes it.

Khyaber had strictly followed Cyrus's Guidance before he finally yet roughly landed in the open yard. Almost as soon as he landed, the peasants of the estate scrammed and kept their distance despite seeing Kalista on the wyvern.

Kalista quickly untied herself before jumping off, stumbling a bit from the hefty leap. She then quickly brushed herself off despite her dressware being already pretty worn out. "IM HOOOME!" She suddenly yelled in relieve before plopping down on her back against the well kept green grass. "Ohhh frontyard how i've missed you!" she said breathlessly

Khyaber watched her in complete confusion, his body lowered for Cyrus to get off a bit easier than how Kalista had. "So.. This is what it feels like to be in the human kingdom without being fired at for trying to sneak in for some livestock. I never thought i'de be able to just.. Fly in and even land.. Feels really strange.." he said before glancing over to one of the many peasants. "Uh Cyrus. How many sisters does Kalista have? There are alot of female humans staring at me.."

"They aren't family. They're servants." Kalista said as she sat up. "We give them shelter and pay to serve us."

Cyrus watches Kalista's dramatic dismount and shakes his head, slowly untying himself and Raito and getting down. He leans against Khyaber for a minute before carefully untying the egg and laying it on the grass. He chuckles at Khyaber's responses, " she has no siblings, and yeah, i bet it's different. no more stealing though, or you'll wear out your welcome. if you're hungry i'll see if i can;t get someone to bring you something to eat." He looks over at Kalista, " hey, this egg is your top priority now, even before yourself. get it inside before it catches a chill." he considers Khyaber's harness and cuts most of it away, leaving a loop around his neck, " this should suffice for now to designate you as accepted." he pats Raito's head and slowly makes his way towards the house, telling himself just a bit further before he could rest.


The leader of the dragonriders sets down nearby and looks at Khyaber suspiciously, before seeing the egg and the hatchling and staring in shock, " you...how?" he shakes his head, " first things first, we need to get you inside and let your father know you're alright miss Kalista. we need to get that egg in safely as well..." he looks at the maids, deciding he can;t trust them with it and hefts the egg, carrying it inside and making sure Kalista follows.

Kalista listened to Cyrus nag her about the egg in annoyance. "I know that you jerk. It's my responsibility. And when it hatches.. My dragon is gonna be the strongest dragon in the kingdom." she said cockily as she slowly stood up. When the leader of the dragonrider squad suddenly picked up her egg however, she tensed up a bit in worry. She of course was way too weak and frail to pick it up and Cyrus was too hurt.. But.. It still made her uncomfortable having someone she barely really knew handle it.. Either way, she followed him in silence. Worry of what her father would say when he saw her..

Khyaber lowered his head some in a bit of uncertainty when the dragonrider leader had looked at him before he once again turned to see the maids giving him their looks of uncertainty and even fear. "A-Accepted.. Yeah.." he said in a sarcastic tone before he turned back to Cyrus as he walked away. "U-um Cyrus.. What do I do now.." he said, his tail curling up around him as he remained low to the ground in a defensive and tense position.

The dragonrider strides inside, looking at a maid, " don't just stand there, go fetch the lord!" he shakes his head as the maid scurries off to go inform Kalista's father. He makes his way to the main reception room and carefully settles the egg onto a rug.

Cyrus glances at Khyaber, " i know it's not perfect right now, just stay put? i need to talk with Kalista's father and get things arranged...just stay out of trouble for a bit. and honestly, i'd really like to just rest for a bit...i promise you'll be safe. maybe go to sleep, or at least pretend to. they're going to be scared no matter what but you'll freak them out less that way." he slowly goes inside leaving the Wyvern alone, he hated leaving him like that but there was a lot he had to tend to, including himself. he sits in the reception room as well, groaning as he sinks into a seat and feels the pain abate as he's able to just rest a bit, the hatchling curling at his feet.

Khyaber blinked some in response to Cyrus before he groaned out as he walked into the building leaving him alone.. "S-Sleep.. yeaaaah... Will doo.." he grumbled out, listening to the whispers of the curious maids. "Eaaasyy.. pz..."

Kalista had sat down on the rug with the egg, resting her hand on it to feel its warmth. She smiled a gentle smile for a moment before glancing over to Cyrus. She then looked back down before looking to the dragonrider. "Ahem.. Maybe this whole reuniting with my father thing can wait.. You know.. Until I get some nice clothes on and.. Maybe something nice to eat-"

"KALISTA! BABY GIRL!" A familiar voice shouted as a man ran down the hall into the reception room. It was her father, Henry. "You're home!" He finished as he quickly got down on his knees to hug her. She groaned out as he squeezed her frail body, having pulled her away from her egg for a second to do so. "My child.. You're filthy.. And you smell of mud and river rat.." he said as he pulled her away just to look her in the face and make sure she was ok. "Are you hurt? Tell papa.. Did Cyrus do anything to you-"

"No.. dad.. I'm fine." she said a bit breathlessly.. "Cyrus didn't do anything to me.. I.. well.." she began as she looked over to him with a bit of uncertainty. "He.. did his job.. well.." She said with a bit of a saddened glance. "He protected me.. Like the bodyguard you hired him to be.. Dad.." she finished, looking away from Cyrus.

"Oh baby girl.. Thank goodness." He said as he once again pulled her into a hug. "MAIDS!" He suddenly shouted as he helped Kalista stand. "Take my baby girl and help her get cleaned up. And tell the chefs to prepare us a feast for tonight! We need to celebrate the return of my daughter!" he said before finally glancing back to the egg and then the Cyrus. He remained silent, a look fo seriousness appearing for a second before he once again smiled his chubby smile. "CHOP CHOP! I'de like some alone time with Cyrus!" he finished causing Kalista to gasp as a few maids took her hand to lead her. "Ah.. the egg-" she began only to be interrupted by her father. "This shall be a swell night!" he said in his explosive voice before Kalista had been lead out from the room and down the hall to get cleaned up.

"Dragonrider." Henry said as he turned to the leader. "Take the egg to her room. Thank you sir."

Cyrus stays where he is as his employer fusses over his daughter, asking her if he'd done anything. He stayed quiet, his word would mean nothing. Thankfully Kalista defended him. Soon she was ushered off to her room to get cleaned up and get new clothes. he acted the part of the fool, but the man had the situation under control.

The dragonrider hesitated, wanting to hear the story. Technically he wasn't employed by Kalista's father and was not obligate dot obey, but after a moment he bows and picks up the egg carefully, carrying it along with and getting it settled in Kalista's room safely.

Once the others are gone Cyrus gives a wry smile, " pardon sir that i don't get up and bow, im afraid i've broken some ribs, and they're rather painful. My apologies for worrying you, things happened so quickly and it was all i could do to keep her safe. i assume you wish to know what happened?"

Henry remained quiet, watching as the dragonrider left. When it was truly just the two of them, he finally turned to Cyrus with an unamused look. "A baby dragon. A dragon egg. Over two weeks of being gone. And, a wyvern in my frontyard. I saw him from my window." he said as he took a seat. "I think I can piece together what happened. Spoiled Teenage girl gets jealous she didn't get an egg from the ceremony, and decides to go get one herself." he said as he rested his arm over his forehead. "I hired you because I know my daughter. This isn't the first time she has done something unreasonable and stupid because she believes she can do anything with her status.." he said before moving his arm to look up at his ceiling. "I hired you knowing one day, she'd find a new dangerous interest that she'd pursue. My question is. Why didn't you stop her. You're not of high education, but you're not stupid either Cyrus. You're one of the smartest people I know. Why let her do something so dangerous." he finished before sitting up to look to Cyrus with his stern glance.

Henry was a very smart Noble man. He held a lot of power, and had a close relationship with the king himself. He wasn't the stereotypical rich man who took his status for granted. He earned his respect and played his cards right. Yes, he was a tiny bit on the chubby side which made him seem like the stereotypical fat and snobbish asshole. But he was far from it. Unlike most nobles.

Cyrus waits and listens while the man laid what he knew of the situation before them. Cyrus nods, " as you said, she is spoiled, was upset she didn;t get a dragon egg and set her mind on obtaining one. and as you said, i am not stupid. She took off after the ceremony, and i followed her into the woods. i could have dragged her back, but instead i tried to convince her that it was a horrible idea, not at all fun, and likely to end in utter failure assuming she survived. her mind was set. And i knew if i did drag her back, she would set off regardless at some point, maybe not that day, maybe not that week, maybe not for several months. not that she's known for her patience, but still. at some point she'd take off, and having dragged her back, i would have lost her trust, so she would have found time to take off and go with no protection at all. can you honestly say you could keep a guard on her 24/7 for the rest of her life? no, there was less risk for me to go with than to risk her going alone."

He sighs softly, " i tried each day to convince her we should go back, how foolish this was, but you know how headstrong she is, i know i made the right choice. she wouldn't have lasted more than a few days out there alone. The journey was difficult, but we made it to the foot of the mountains when a monster attacked. i was able to fend it off from her, but it broke my ribs. Khyaber, the Wyvern out there, came in and finished it off, saving both myself and Kalista from death by the thing. He took us into the dragon lands to rest, and while there somehow despite the odds, this hatchling chose me, and Kalista was given her egg. Now he brought us back. All he wants in return for his noble deeds is the chance of a better life, food is scarce so far out with so many dragons to feed, so i said we can try to give him a place here, to work for his keep. it's the least i can do given he saved my life." he looks at his employer calmly, " i don't expect you to agree with my choice, but i believe i made the choice that would most likely result in her safety. which is ultimately what you hired me for."
