Akhira

Akhira registered the look of shock on the Nestling`s face as if not expecting anyone to help him. A feeling that Akhira shared as she hadn't realized she said those words aloud to him until it was too late. She hadn't expected the sight of this lost human nestling to strike something inside her chest. A feeling she found unwelcome.

Surprisingly, once he saw her scales, he didn't look approvingly at them like some humans did as they often thought she was a dragon slayer. A theory she had spread by mouth herself. He instead seemed fearful and even a tiny tad disgusted by them. Perhaps, he likes... No, she could not allow herself to think that. All humans hated her kind, and to even doubt this one's perspective on it was pointless and dangerous. He was a human, humans lied, cheated, and killed their own kind, even members of their own families. They were not to be trusted.

"I have no idea which way to go," he admitted to her, though she already knew this. However, he was hopeful that she could help him. "Which way should I be going?"

What the hell am I doing? Akhira asked herself, and got no reply. She hissed softly, nearly silently at herself as she spied a group of male humans standing in the shadow of a building. They looked to be the same age as this lost one, but instead, the air they gave off was that of scavengers. Scavengers that had their sights on her lost nestling. She silently groaned at her bad decision.

"I guess fate is smiling upon you today. I'm also going grocery shopping today. Come on, I'll lead you." Akhira stepped around Jason and grabbed his arm by the sleeve of his jacket and turned him around, glaring daggers at the group of thugs as she took him away from the disastrous mistake of walking their way.

As she led him along she was careful not to allow her skin to come into contact with his. No matter how much pity and sympathy this human instilled in her, she would never allow him to touch her. Yet, another surprise for her was that despite the voice telling her that this was against her warrior's instincts, she found it easy and almost natural to be pulling Jason around. Almost...

Akhira immediately let go of his sleeve when they got to the entrance of the store. "Here you are," she didn`t smile, "I'll be on my way now." She left him to find the cure to this disease called hunger.

Several minutes later....

Why the hell is this so difficult?! Akhira was beginning to lose patience with her situation as she apologized to the manager for busting a second watermelon. How could she have even known watermelons were fragile?

After paying for both busted watermelons, she made her way to a section where all the food was in cans. She went to grab one can of chicken soup off the shelf when she saw another type of chicken soup. Both were labeled chicken soup yet, they were priced differently. Confused, she asked herself, "Which do I choose? What's the difference?" Frustrated at her inability to choose which, she groaned, just as her stomach growled. She accidentally tighted her grip on the can and... it busted. "Curses..."
