Casually strolled in. It seemed like a fair Day, though it was rather chilly. The temperature in the Mid Forties, however this didn't seem to be much of a problem, the only real thing that could be remotely bothersome was the heat for many obvious reasons. Though the cold caused him to draw nears snails pace, unlike the heat it didn't cause any real damage or pose much of a threat! Even more so being he couldn't 'feel' it.

However. Conner would enter threw the front Door like any other normal person. Wearing a baby blue, frilled noodle strapped dress, a pair of 'high tops' or sandals with high heels, and well curly hair was left to roam free! However to those wondering why a 'Man' was wearing a dress, well by law do to his 'birth' he 'is' one, however in appearance he is not, to be frank he had no actual gender, though calling him it repeatedly would be redundant.

However. Entrances aside, a rather terribly drawn out one at that. 'He' had implemented that damn stomach this time around, hell why else would one show up at a Pub? Though the thought process of cleaning it, especially after forgetting he had it was rather...disgusting, especially after the food sat for knows how long!- Though moving along, he'd make quick haste to..well to go the counter. He had drawn out this entrance longer then he should had, hell he was face palming because of it!

Talking Snakes? What in the Good Fuck? Quite literally, the mans Mind was in the gutter generally most of the damn time, however this was at the peek of interest, though his interest was generally more geared toward Woman then anything else. Though it seemed he took a seat at the Counter- once the 'Talking Snake' makes itself known he will take the honor of recording it, hell he was certain recording someone without their permission was a violation of their rights? All that suing and shit...though he 'knew' he'd walk away Scottfree, how would they know he's recording? Ah speaking of Snakes...

After his writer failed numerous times. Quite obviously, the 'Cyborg' of sorts would adjust his rump upon the Red, Leather Seated Stool. Legs entwining between the Chrome Stool Legs, High Tops dangling from his feet in a lazily manner, being held in place by the strap wedged the left and right side of his second toe.

Arm reaching up toward the side of his head, fingers of his left hand wrapping around the small slab on the cog like object seeming to mimic 'headphone'. Twisting- wait was the Snake talking to him...? "What the- I mean...Hello there...?" It wasn't certain to who this was addressed too, hell there was two females! Though he was the one whom entered after the other...perhaps...?

Okay. So the Snake Man wasn't speaking with him, this left him a moment to finish twisting...or well cranking that...could it be considered a Nob? A Small click..or was it a snap? could be heard, followed by the classical timer ticking, the nob slowly turning back in the direction in was twisted. Now everything he was hearing, and seeing would be recorded until the nob unwound itself.

Though the 'new' creature had gained his attention. This place seemed to just spawn freaks, possible means to obtain a healthy pay or sum of money. He didn't require food, though he did need to pay the bills like anyone else. Though he was rather close to showing his 'true' nature upon...well he thought the snake spoke to him...or well was it Snake Man?

Ah. So the Creature of sorts could speak, interesting. Though he really didn't find it appealing, hell he found it hard to even look at the Woman, though mainly because he was a jack ass, to be blunt. "Knowing of the the lands here...?" He would pause, he tone sounded exactly how he appeared- well it held a 'robotic' or metallic undertone to it. "Not entirely, I've only been here for nearly a few months. I've never put any thought into exploring the general area." He would offer in comply, being polite even though this isn't really his true nature. Though he didn't need to show it so a ruse would work perfectly.

Lovely. "Bah, more garbage crawling from out of their shit infested pit..." He's mutter to himself. Undertone making it impossible rather to understand what he was saying, though frankly the 'Slam' had caused the sound in further recording to vanish. Damn outdated technology, at first this was the best of the best, or the best his world had to offer...but after being here for quite some time-

However. 'Huzzah'! A 'real' Woman had finally appeared, hell he almost literally completely forgotten about the One he was explaining to earlier. Mentally the Man was foaming at the mouth like some manner of rabid Dog, though Physically he...well she? Seemed to be rather calm, observesive one could say. "You. You seem 'too' Normal." He wouldn't bring up the fact that he wanted to get into the Lass Pants, hell its not like he actually could...he just wanted to! He wouldn't even bring it up, no he'd continue his ruse, while running that slightly broken recording..or well just recording until the nob snapped back into place.

Stared. Those Artificial eyes carried no manner to emphasize emotion, they where fake to the point of looking empty when the person truly wasn't. It wasn't the same as real Human eyes. However he would seem to quickly grab the ticking nob upon the left side of his head, a loud 'snap' could be heard as he held it in place. "Yes. You. You're by far the most normal person here." He seemed blunt about it, however he was mentally staring her up...Gods be damned.

"Mostly that, though I believe you may also be considerably normal on the inside depicting on how your anatomy seems similar to a Humans...though that's an assumption on my half." He would pause for a moment, answering the Woman only to let go of the nob, it moving once more though the ticking had seemed to stop...?

This girl wasn't strange. In-fact even her behavior seemed 'normal' or run of the mill even. No evil plotting, no brewing in a corner muttering curses, no walking in like you'd just been tossed into a paper shredder. Normal...?

Felt a 'Dagger' Strike his Ego where it hurt. Hell even despite being in a different body he had went senile a while back, he was..smart in a technical term, or when it came to machines...that's. However he'd go with it, he needed to reel this prize in, and what he was good at doing was making a ruse! "I get that allot I suppose, but nope, I guess I'm not." He would knock on his head in the 'silly me' manner, though unable to emphasize the emotion he tried to place out so it..looked...weird. Tune still carrying that Metallic undertone to it? Though the Snake Mans comply made him come close to snapping...he happened to be one of those old men that loved to argue and bicker.

"Name...? Oh its Conner, something simple and impossible to forgot." He'd pause. He didn't really care if the girl returned her own, names where of no importance, he could never really forget a face...quite literally. "Hm...?"

Paused. The Moment the Woman had announced these 'names' a chime would admit from the..well Woman? "I think I'll go with Sammii, the other two are overly used too frequent." He would however pause for a second, the nob seemed to click again in the matter of a timer as it slowly spun. This alone proved to be an annoyance to Conner.

"Neither actually." However he would seem to reach up to grab the left nob. Only to quite literally rip it out, a long slender metallic tube covered in various wires, seeming to be attached to his skull now. Him moving to pull out a small...odd flat square like object from one of the various slots before...pushing the tube back in. "Machine. Android. Cyborg. But to get this out, I'm not a Persocom. It agitates me when people refer to me as such." He would turn the nob back without letting it continue that odd...slow rotation of..sorts.- Okay now this was..wait..what...a Duck..?

Paused. "Hm. How about Sam Sam? Seeing as you don't seem too found of another person calling you Sammii." It would be his comply as his seemed to toss the Chip away like it was nothing important, honestly it really wasn't. Just the recording he was attempting to record earlier, what a waste it seems. "Well. Its nice to meet someone who has never met a 'Cyborg' before, generally every tends to roll their eyes when I state what I am." He would offer this in comply, however even he didn't know what that was it seemed.... "Absolutely no idea...a Mass of Snot with arms...?" He would however shake his sign, he was the type to take a sign like that and bash it over a persons head, like stated he wasn't truly a very friendly person. "Agreed. Very strange."

Nodded slowly. Conner would observe the Woman as she drew closer, well moving a seat over. Only for his hearing to become impaired for a brief moment as a 'Gun Shot' rung forth. This pace was worse then one of those preteen concerts? "Still. I'm picky when it comes to Nicks, I don't like using one others had used already...looses that sense of uniqueness to it." He would offer in comply. It seemed the Woman loved her Vodka...? Or Booze in general it seemed. "Well people tend to get offensive when they find out they can't get into somethings 'pants', that's how most people here tend to get." It was far off from the actual truth, though it seemed if they couldn't sleep with you, you weren't welcome?

However. Smoking wasn't his thing, not at all. "Indeed it is life is always filled with various strange things, and people are generally far from 'sane'...to be frank sane is rather dull." However he'd shake his head slowly at this. "No. Its quite alright. I am...enthralled by this conversation? Though it seems I can't really display that too well...I do apologize."

Paused. Blinking for a moment upon what the Woman said. "I think I may have an idea, though my situations different, they eventually learn they are unable to actually get into my pats Per Say. Well giving them the-" He'd paused for a moment, it was one of those dot dot dot moments to be exact. "Never mind, that would of came out entirely wrong..." He would seem to pause again, gaze remaining still or firmly planted it seems.

"Strange...? I don't see anything strange...?" He would bop his head to the side. Mentally he was pretty much...napping? And putting his Cybernetic Brain on cruise control? He had no idea really. "There's nothing you can do about an infestation, you merely have to destroy the source of it...though that would be all of humanity- I've already come to hate this place, if it wasn't for rare creatures such as yourself I wouldn't bother coming here."

Paused. Reaching to pat the girl upon the head though it didn't seem very comforting. "Because their strange themselves and are afraid to admit it. I see nothing wrong with being different." He would merely offer in comply, he wasn't very good at this whole consoling thing now was he? Regardless it seems like he was trying to keep up this ruse.

"Killing in general is never a good thing, so there's no point in bothering... I could say the same, actually I'm far weaker then an underclasses Human." He would pause for a moment, taking a moment to think on a comply to what the Woman had just stated now. "Vampires....Why don't think keep some manner of tool on you? Vampires posses many weakness...however I am sorry to hear such things....you of all people don't deserve to put up with such ludicrous. Rest assured if a Vampire tempts at you I'll impale them with my arm." He was trying right? Frankly a machine wasn't very good at doing that either...hm. "Technically stabbing them in the heart with anything do's them in, but the Movie was a good example....however I am relieved you did manage to survive or I wouldn't have met you. Regardless luck seems to have it out for you.."

Nodded, or was it bobbing of his head? "Welcome- Oh and that's because I have no room for weapons, and do to lacking much physical strength using one wouldn't be very affective." He would offer in comply, pausing for a moment as he seemed to shake his head slowly. Blinking however at the Woman's response to her blunder. "Are you referring to the Comic or the Cartoon...? Its fine, I understand what your pointing at....though that Cyborg and I are much different. I have no organic parts." He would merely pause again, seeming to shake his head slowly at this. "You are no idiot, don't think so lowly of yourself. Well a knife could be effective, its sharp so it can easily kill, Humanoids are generally fragile creatures...however running also works." However he would seem to pause. Something about....himself...? "About myself...? What would you like to know...? Well you don't see a Robot every other day I suppose?

Nodded slowly. "Ah. I remember that, someone hacked me a few days prior and flooded my Storage with that and some other garbage." He would pause for a moment, blinking at what the Woman said. "Have you tried manually changing the channel instead of using a remote...?" He would incline in question. This Woman was surely...odd very odd actually.

"Frankly. I have no idea what I could tell you, nothing interesting about me. Its up to you, I won't pry." This girl was tempting him wasn't she. It was hard to keep this ruse up when she kept doing things that made his inner pervert wag its tail.

Paused. She seemed to do just that, looking toward the Door like asked of her and not- well asked of him, not protesting in the slightest. "Understood. Oh, so its one of those things. I could always change the Channel if you'd like, I think I can Sync myself with the Television like I do with the Internet." He would offer in comply, a solution to the Woman's problem, he didn't have a Plasma, or well needed one. He could access the net from anywhere being he was like a walking Computer...?

"Hm....Well I'm a retired Scientist, you can easily refer to me as a Former Engineer also." He would merely state something about himself so the poor Lass didn't have to think too hard, there wasn't much one needed to know about Him, he was a very simplistic person..or well Robot per say. "Understood-" However he did pause, looking toward the Sketch Pad upon the Woman inquiring in question. "Not that Good...? Don't say such ludicrous. Its quite accurate, and well detailed." Interesting. So Sammii could drawn...? Flattering he would admit, the image of himself did draw interest. So that's what he looked like...? He never really looked in a mirror, well often.

Nodded slowly. "Quite. I'm not too found of re-runs, they get very repetitive quickly." He would offer in comply, the girl was very strange. However she would still remain alluring, he had to keep this ruse up so he could attempt at scoring! Somehow, he wasn't certain how though. But he got a thrill out of merely speaking with an attractive Lass, hell before they'd mace him, and run away screaming! "Quite. No need to thank me. Well technically at first glance I appear Human, besides the things protruding from my head,"

However he would seem to fall silent for a second, tilting his head to the side only to pause for a brief moment. "Yes- It was...I suppose. Oh...before I came here it was Temporal Distortions, though it seems I'm in retirement now." He wasn't going to keep anything top secret, he wasn't one of those...Evil Scientists. "My field mostly involved Engineering and Design. Building and creating tools..nothing special."

Dreadful. Gambits only proved to be an utterly dreadful place, frankly they knew far too much, more then they should initially know from just meeting Him then and there. However, after traveling the Dark Woods,and barely managing to squeeze threw an inning of tree's he found himself...in a scene he wasn't rather found of. "Actual Living Plant Life..." Mutter, Mutter. Something rare for a Forest that appeared to have been entirely scorched.

Regardless. This place seemed like a Safe Haven, though there was no means to 'recharge', no Building which possessed Electricity...or well living facilities in general. Just Plant Life, Nature, and all that rather 'boring' Jazz. There wasn't much for him to go off on, he managed to squeeze threw an Inning of tree's and found himself in a rather lush clearing? Hell perhaps he'd try recording, there might be some 'dark' secret about this place... "Lovely. And I wore my good dress too... Annoying Nature, should of been scorched like the remainder of it...though this seems preserved." With a quick motion he'd merely reach for the nob on the left side of his head, the thing that replace his ears, slowly twisted it.

Dull. Okay so there was some Birds...but none that where considered Rare or anything 'New', just your Common City Birds flocking to the Wood to flee the Cities Destructive Theme like anything that possess common sense. However even he'd admit he was caught off-guard by this strange person whom had sneaked upon him.

It wasn't like he was some manner of advanced weapon or tool, he couldn't pick up on others presence, hell his sense where duller then those of an actual person. However the 'artificial' skin did serve him well, picking up on touch and transmitting it to the cortex, allowing him to notice this person only when his shoulder had been touched. However mentally he nearly had a stroke, and wanted to drop the person where they stand- though upon hearing their voice would keep his calm. "Why am I here? I'm not certain, maybe because I felt whimsical, or maybe to escape the City Scene.." His voice matched his appearance, but carried a fake...robotic undertone to it. Though he dared not look back at the person, no he'd merely release the nob, it slowly spinning back like some manner of timer.

Remained still. Was He being threatened? He couldn't pick up on Hostility like a normal person could however. "Nature's Nature. It serves its purpose like the rest of you." He didn't place himself with the remainder of the whole, People served their purpose, and so did Nature. He wasn't Human so he didn't believe he'd fit into the...grouping..? Wait now she was going to watch...or well observe him now it seems...? Odd. "Watching? Wouldn't it be easier to simply stay and offer a hopefully remotely interesting conversation. As I doubt you'd be interested in me standing here for two hours while I record useless data." He went straight to the point, the nob starting to tick much to his precious recordings dismay...never could get that fixed, maybe it needs to be replace?

Remained still. Not really moving as He continued to 'record' like he had stated to her. "Then its your loss, even if it wasn't of interest a conversation can still be pleasant. And that's because, even if such information is worthless its a memory, I'd like to have something I can look back upon. Something that didn't exist back home and something I enjoy." He seemed to remain blunt about it, but it was pointing toward an enjoyment of Nature, maybe it came with being Old? Nature didn't exist where he originated, technology was dominant.

However. He did glance back at the Woman upon them taking two steps back, remaining calm all the while as the Person seemed wavered. "You Creature are strange." He would continue to glance back at this girl, to her he was probably strange, odd and even 'evil' do to how he acted upon certain thing. But from his she was the strange one.

The Hidden Glen was peaceful and quiet. It was near the midnight hour and the moon was full, its bright white haze illuminating the otherwise dark forest. The moon seemed massive as it hung in the night sky, its large round form being mirrored and reflected off the surface of completely calm, still black waters. Being farther out away from the nearest cities, away from all the dust and light pollution, here the stars twinkled and shined ever so brightly like tiny little blue shimmering diamonds in the sky. There were no clouds to be seen, and peering up from the large clearing in the trees, this was the perfect time and place to go stargazing. Although it was very late, the moonlight made it somewhat more possible to see in the dark by casting a dark blue silhouette over the forest, making the treeline more visible for anyone who might not have a lamp to see. Of course, many nocturnal critters happened to be active in the forest at this time, and occasionally their eyes would reflect the moonlight also which caused their eyes to glow in the dark. Raccoons, foxes, possums, deer and other creatures roamed around quietly at night as green lightning bugs hovered around and flickered magically in the dark with the serene and natural sounds of croaking frogs and toads, and chirping crickets.

The Hidden Glen seemed like the perfect place to go camping as a single shooting star fell over the night sky, adding a more surreal view to the already peaceful and dreamy setting. But the dark forest, despite its appearance and stillness, was a place that never truly slept, as many animals were just now starting to hunt. From tiny black ants to hungry fish, winged bats and grub eating hogs, the forest may have seemed quiet, but it was actually teaming with life. If someone was quiet and still for long enough, they might even be able to hear cracking sticks and swaying branches moving in the dark forest from the many stealthy animals that passed through the area on a regular basis. There were snakes slithering about in search of nesting birds, which had settled in for the night. A wood turtle was drifting afloat in the middle of a large pond, as water beetles waded along the surface, causing little V-shaped ripples in the water. A spider was busy spinning its web between two trees, and the dew which had collected on its silky strings began to shine in the moonlight. A wolf's long-winded howl could be heard in the far distance, followed by what sounded like a great horned owl as it called out to other owls using a series of hoots.

Despite its tranquility and peacefulness, The Hidden Glen was a very dangerous place for the unwary and unprepared. Bears and panthers or wildcats lived in the forest, along with coyotes, large alligators and other predators. While most of these animals were very skittish and usually afraid of humans, incidents have been known to happen, and it wasn't uncommon for tragic deaths to occur in the woods, especially at night during a full-sized moon like tonight. Everything was on guard in the dark forest. That is, everything except for a single large egg which suddenly fell from the sky, as if it had been dropped from the air by a large night bird, slipping from its talons in mid-flight or perhaps dropped on purpose due to its weight. The large egg fell through the trees, bouncing and rolling over several branches as it tumbled to the ground. The egg rolled along the grassy leafbed before hitting the trunk of a huge willow tree and coming to a dead stop, nestled within its thick winding roots among the foliage. Miraculously, the egg didn't even crack or break, and apart from three parallel scratches along its surface caused by the talons of whatever had dropped it, the egg appeared to be unscathed.

As the moonlight hit the egg's surface, it quickly became apparent that this was no ordinary egg. The most noticeable thing about it was its size. The egg, although having a typical oblong round shape like most common birds and reptiles, was about the same size as a 60 gallon wine barrel and weighed nearly 600 pounds. It had a very thick, dark grey plated surface covered in diamond-shaped rocky scales which overlapped similar to fishes scales and helped it to blend in with the rocks and foliage. An egg which had scales, now that wasn't something associated with most reptiles and birds, especially among the species which lived in the surrounding forest. This could only mean one thing. The egg must have come from somewhere else. But from where? And how did it get here? Was it still alive? And if so, what kind of embryo was it carrying inside? Was it a bird, a snake, or maybe a large crocodile? Could it even be a fish of some kind? Or perhaps the creature that dropped it did so after realizing that it wasn't an egg at all, but just a very large rock. Only, if that were the case, then it certainly did look like an egg of some kind. Rocks don't usually look egg-shaped or have thick scaley armor around them. Nope. This was almost certainly a dragon egg. But where did it come from? And what kind of dragon laid it? With nobody around to hear it fall, see it land, or stumble upon its well hidden roost in the dark forest, the perfectly quiet little egg kept its secrets. At least for the time being as it sat completely motionless between the tree roots, resembling a fallen seed pod or dark fossilized fern on the leafbed...

One year later...

If one could fast-forward the clock, they could watch the seasons change over and over again. Nighttime turned into twilight, which turned into dawn, which turned into midday, which turned into dusk before turning into night again. The luscious green summer forest soon turned over to the dead brown leaves of autumn which whitened during the winter, blossoming with fruits and flowers during the springtime, only to return again back to summer. A full cycle, a flashing glimpse of one whole year focused on the same spot throughout each and every image, showing what was to become of the large black egg, still nestled cozily against the base of the aging willow tree, protected and hidden by its tangling roots in the soft rotting foliage.

Although it was large enough to see plain as day, it resembled a rock or ancient plant fossil, and blended in beautifully with its surroundings, at least during the summertime. The four changing seasons had effected the egg somewhat. It had rolled slightly from its original position during a small flash flood caused by a mildly terrible lightning storm. The egg had been subjected to a small forest fire as the willow tree it was hidden under was struck by lightning. Even though the egg sat dormant on top of a natural nest of red hot burning coals covered in flames, it did not cook the fetus inside. The egg appeared to be fire resistant, or perhaps even fire activated as the fetus began to twitch and show signs of life like a flapping shrimp. At that point in time, the as yet unhatched baby dragon was actually the same size as a shrimp, swimming inside a large eggy fishbowl of nutrients, proteins and vitamins. It didn't even know where it was, and experienced no effect from the waking storms.

As winter came, it had snowed for two days straight during a nasty blizzard which killed most of the trees and covered the ground with a blanket of heavy snow. The egg was camouflaged naturally by the sheet of snow which had collected on top of the egg shell, but the fetus inside the egg did not freeze. Instead, the colder temperatures triggered another genetic process in the creature's body. It started to change genders, just like some reptile fetuses had a tendency to do. As spring came, many rodents, snakes, frogs, insects, squirrels and raccoons would find the large egg and use it as a stepping stone, jumping on top of it in order to run up the willow tree, which was already growing back strong. But even the pressure from the weight of a mountain lion still wasn't enough to crush the lifeform inside.

After a whole year of these exciting changes and events had passed, the egg never moved or changed size. But the little baby dragon inside the egg kept growing bigger and bigger. Now it wasn't a tiny little shrimp anymore. The leech-like embryo had developed into a large wyrm or serpent, which continued to grow with each passing moon until finally it grew two eyes and four legs and started to resemble a soft-bodied salamander. Our unhatched infant was now over 3 feet long from head to tail, roughly the same size as a small monitor lizard. Slowly but surely, its skin began to toughen and soon the baby dragon inside the egg started to develop its first boney scales, taking on more of a reptillian appearance that wasn't so soft or slimey.

It grew its first tiny little baby teeth that were as sharp as a needle, and tiny little claws the size of hawk talons and as sharp as cat claws. Soon, fleshy flabs would appear under the armpits of each forelimb, connecting the animal's elbows to its body like a small pair of sails or fins. They were far too small to enable the baby dragon to do anything but swim around faster, but these small flappy membranes were actually the first makings of tiny little bat-like wings. Right now, however, they just looked like lizard gills, and were not nearly developed enough to enable the dog-sized dragon to glide through the air, let alone fly.

They did help with one thing though besides swimming. These gills acted like little bags or kites for catching wind and providing enough lift that, if the hatchling was to run at full speed, it could potentially achieve a sense of temporary bipedalism before landing on all fours. This would help the defenseless little tetrapod to run even faster for small distances on its two hindlegs, giving it a darting edge over much larger predators. It was a useful evolutionary advantage, and a necessary one, for it was possibly the only defense the poor little creature had. The dragon's internal oil sacks helped it to navigate underwater to such a point that even inside its dark gooey shell, the tiny little larval dragon was already smart enough to determine up from down as it swam around in circles, slowly feeding on its own yoke while continuing to grow bigger over time.

Finally the summer had returned, along with the heat and rain. The rising temperatures caused the unhatched baby dragon to mutate and change genders once again in direct sunlight, only this would be the last time it did this, as the dragon slowly evolved to another stage of development which no longer enabled the gender changing process. Finally, the dragon's sex had been determined. It was to become a male dragon, and this would determine the rest of the animal's life as it continued to mature. The egg was getting soft now and ready to hatch as the outer shell began to change colors like a fruit that's been ripened.

The dragon's small, fragile body was now strong enough to meet the new world. It would finally stand a fighting chance, albeit a very small chance of survival in the wilderness, but a small chance nonetheless. However, it did not hatch. Although it had been a year since the egg was incubated, and it was now time to hatch, it had received no care. It had been neglected to the forces of nature, and while the baby dragon inside was very much alive and healthy, it was becoming a late bloomer. The temperature of the egg had not been carefully regulated like it should have been, and the four-legged beast inside was still underweight. So it continued to hibernate under the weeping willow, lest it become a dwarf dragon and too small to fulfill its intended purpose. Rather than hatching which would risk stunting its own growth, the baby dragon instead lay dormant inside its egg and did nothing, allowing the time to pass.

As the time passed and days began to change, so too did the unhatched infant dragon. It had slowly evolved and developed nicely into something which looked very similar to a gliding lizard, only much larger. It's oil bladders started to mutate and become gas bladders, while it's gills became gliding membranes. It's lungs grew bigger while it's toes and claws grew longer. Finally, the tiny dracodylidae was ready to hatch. It wiggled around and twitched quietly, pushing its slightly curved elongated snout against the egg shell from inside its pink, gooey veined center.

At first there was a crack, and soon the egg shell began to break away as the tiny forelimb of a dog-sized reptiloid reached out from between the cracks, curling its talons and hooking on to the edge of the busted shell. Then another hooked claw appeared, gripping the egg's outer shell as the scaley dragon lifted itself up. The egg's lid rested on the creature's head as it poked its face out, it's large round golden snake-like eyes simply menacing and frightening to behold with their diamond-shaped black pupils and slanted, scaley brow ridges. If ever a slimey salamander could look evil or dangerous, it was now, as it tested the air by tasting it with its forked snake-like tongue. It was obvious just from its appearance that this animal was a carnivore.

But even predators have to partake in the race for survival at some point. The infant dragon's natural borne instincts took over, and within moments, it managed to break free from its heavily armored egg shell. It didn't seem like much, but the struggle to get free had left the little baby dragon exhausted and tired. It crawled out into the world for the first time since its conception, and proceeded to rest between the protruding roots of the old willow tree. Although its scales were harder now, its flesh was still soft and slimey, covered in a protective layer of mucus which gave off a pheromone that would temporarily ward off predators. However, the baby dragon was still brittle and weak with soft skin and cartlidge-like hollow bones. Breaking free and hatching from the egg was tiring and the baby dragon had no choice but to rest afterwards. It would bask in the sun and dry out, allowing its body to absorb the sunlight and warm up, giving its heart and lungs the boost needed in order to get its blood pumping. The dragon's skin was sandy in color and semi-transparent like a newborn gecko. Although it had claws, its talons were still soft and very small, more useful for climbing and digging than for hunting or fighting off hungry wildcats.

After a few minutes, the newborn's claws and skin had dried out and hardened wonderfully. The large lizard reared its head up for the first time, and like a frog or gecko, would almost comically lick its large round golden croc-like eyes with its blackish purple, forked snake-like tongue. It was tasting the air, and becoming more familiar with its surroundings. The baby dragon could already smell other animals from over a mile away. It could hear their footsteps with its false ear lobes, located behind its eyes where it still had gills. It had a rounded snout and looked almost cute, if only for its small size and disproportionately big eyes, tiny cat-like claws and itty bitty webbed toes. It croaked its throat, or tried to, but no sound was presented by the creature's tiny call to its mother. It couldn't even chirp, for its body was still developing and the baby dragon had not yet learned to use its vocal abilities. It tried again as it's neck bulged, but again to no avail. Soon, it began to crawl or slither on all fours, taking its very first baby steps. It started to crawl along the forest floor, leaving the natural nest it had been in between the roots of the still burnt but partially green, old thriving willow tree for the first time in its entire life.

The baby dragon dwelled peacefully and quietly in the Hidden Glen for quite some time, undisturbed and undiscovered. Although there were many natural predators in the forest, the baby dragon was already adept at surviving on its own. It had inherited cleverness and cunning, and its smaller size enabled the dragon to serpentine and run very fast on its belly like a large monitor lizard. When it couldn't outrun its enemies on land, the baby dragon ran into the lake and hid in the water. It sometimes crawled into tree hollows and rock crevices to escape from much larger predators in the forest. There was no shortage of places for our young fledgling to run and hide, and yet it very seldom found any danger that could threaten its growth or progress in such a remote environment.

As time went on, the Hidden Glen became even less dangerous, for the baby dragon had started to grow. At the size of a large dog, there were many predators that had tried to hunt it down from time to time. But as it grew to the size of a large horse, those same predators that used to hunt the baby dragon were now its prey. The scaley beast had developed sharp boney horns and long raptor-like claws. Its eyesight improved along with its taste, hearing and sense of smell. Its brain developed and it grew in intellect, acquiring rationalization and keen instincts. But that's not all. As the beast's muscles, body and bones continued to grow, it developed the ability to use its gas bladders to mimic the different sounds and noises it could hear in the forest. Soon, the baby dragon had become the ultimate hunter and top predator in the Hidden Glen, and all the other animals in the area fell silent and went into hiding whenever the horse-sized reptilavian monster came strolling through the trees.

Five more years went by, and not a whole lot had changed. The baby dragon hadn't grown much bigger in all that time, and it still couldn't fly yet, but its two bat-like wings had developed wonderfully, long colorful fleshy semi-transparent membranes attached to its forelimbs enabling it to climb or glide from branch to branch. The dragon had all the right parts and pieces now, carefully crafted into its genetic design by way of natural selection and millions of years of evolution, a nearly sentient species that had survived numerous mass extinction events and was now the perfect predator. The horse-sized reptilavian monster was large enough and powerful enough to become the king of the lake, as it now hunted lions and tigers, bears and even small crocodiles, anything in the Hidden Glen that used to pose a threat to the dragon's survival was now the dragon's food.

But the dragon wasn't ready to venture out into the world or leave the natural sanctuary of the forest just yet. Life in the Hidden Glen was perfect for the baby monster. There were no humans or other sentient creatures around to pester the growing majestic beast or threaten its security. The Hidden Glen provided plenty of food, shelter and water for the dragon to sustain itself and live on. It was the perfect habitat to raise a dragon in, and the monster felt very safe for the time being, progressing slowly as it continued to feed and grow. After a while, the dragon grew to be twice the size of the egg shell it had once hatched from. By now that egg shell had all but disappeared from weather and decay, so that the seasons of change over the years had erased any evidence that the dragon had been born in the forest at all. The new creature had achieved a huge bit of secrecy as it remained hidden and undiscovered in all that time, continuing to develop and grow very slowly both in size and intelligence.
