Case Of Khymera - Chapter 06It took another two day to close all the case files, thanks to Emera, who wanted to have everything done the most precise way possible.
Bryce sighed as he figuratively measured the pile of paper he had to go through until he could go out of his office and get a beer.
It was the last day before the weekend, which didn't help raise Bryce's morale even a little bit. Working overtime at Friday? Who does that?
Knock on his office's door disturbed the thoughts of the earth dragon.
"Come in," said Bryce in his usual deep tone, maybe even deeper that time.
The one who entered was Adine and she had someone else with her.
"Hey, big guy," she said in a happy tone, waving one of her wings at Bryce in friendly manner.
"You know, you shouldn't call me like that. We are not kids anymore, Adine," replied Bryce. Strangely enough, he couldn't remember Adine when he first met her at the crime scene during the Reza investigation. After that, it was like someone had flickered the light on. He used to hang
Case Of Khymera - Chapter 05 Fyr was placed in one of the comfortably cold prison cells at the police station. It was on Bryce's order, because he didn't want to miss on more sleep. He, and the others were dead tired, that was why Sebastian and Alex didn't object against the idea of locking the criminal up for a night.
As there wasn't much left to do, Bryce bid Alex and Sebastian good bye. Sebastian insisted on staying awake, because he had to look out for Amely, as she could wake up at any moment. Alex caught up with the idea, and insisted at staying as well. Bryce only waved a paw, like he wanted to say, 'Do what you want, it's your health.'
Sebastian and Alex came to an agreement to take shifts at watching Amely, and occasionally visit Fyr.
There was another thing to consider. Khymera was still a government agent, and thus she had access to a lot of places. Alex was almost sure, she would show up the second she'd hear, Fyr was caught. Alex obviously shared his concern with Sebastian.
"Well, maybe you should go
Case Of Khymera - Chapter 04It was an interesting day for Adine. First of all, she kicked Sebastian's butt in race, slightly punished him for interrupting her date with Alex. She knew it wasn't the smaller dragon's fault, as he was just following orders. It didn't change anything about the fact she was a marked a criminal after that.
Adine had a bad feeling about Khymera from the very beginning she saw her. She had a feeling Khymera got her in trouble before. It was something from a time she did deliveries to government buildings, before it was taken over by local restaurant. Adine remembered Khymera had a big problem with the meal she ordered, but couldn't recall what was it. That wasn't why was Khymera trying to get her in jail probably anyway. It did give Adine something to think about, though.
It also made it easier to forget about Alex. Adine's insides hurt like never before. One wouldn't tell the saying 'love hurts' had to be taken so seriously.
Adine sighed for a thousand time that day. She was on a break
Case Of Khymera - Chapter 02In that moment, everyone just eyed the yellow dragoness that just arrived.
Khymera had a very similar build to Adine, except she was a runner dragon. Signature green circles and stripes Adine had, seemed to be more blue. Khymera had a more slim anatomy, as she was smaller than Adine, but she also had more confidence. That was obvious from the first moment, just by the fact she just barged to the police station in the middle of a night without even knocking on a door first. When Alex focused on Khymera's eyes, he found out she had two different eye colours, with one eye crimson red, and the other one grass green. They didn't have the curiosity, he adored in Adine, in them. They were cold, menacing, like an eyes of a snake.
"Inspector," Bryce was the first to wake up from the apathy, "My sources suggested you were coming when the sun rises."
"Sun has already risen somewhere," replied Khymera, and glanced upon the other dragons, if any of them appreciated, what she just said. Alex noticed
Case Of Khymera - Chapter 01Just few moments earlier, Alex Tomazuki, the second human ambassador, and Adine, young flier dragoness with bright yellow scales and green markings on her body, were out on a beach. As it was dark already, Alex brought a small petroleum lamp, just to have enough light for them to see. Adine wouldn't need such a thing, as she could see fine in the dark, but didn't say anything for sake of her human companion.
Alex and Adine were planning this for some time. Midnight picnic was something really appealing, especially when there wasn't any danger from the space rocks, like that comet they managed to dodge just a week ago. Adine and Alex alike loved the stars and anything space related in general.
"Do we have everything?" asked Adine, carrying a perfectly packed basket on her crescent moon shaped tail, balancing it on the very tip of the tail, instead of taking it in the talons on her wings.
Human just made a sound of agreement. He had a large red towel under one of his arms. That towel was
Case Of Khymera - Prologue"Come on, Khymera. You know how to operate this thing, so help me out over here."
Two smaller dragons were currently situated inside of a city's hatchery building. Their goal was to remove and replace dragon eggs in the life support box, dropped off there earlier the day.
It was around midnight when they broke in, as there was no one in sight. It was a perfect time for their crime to be executed.
Khymera, the yellow runner dragoness, adjusted her cloth hood, and shoved into her slightly bigger male companion and said, "Let me show you how pro's do it." With an elegant move, she performed swipe over the interface of the machine. Its cover, with a hissing of pneumatic locks being released, opened to let them rob its content.
"You've got the fake ones?" asked Khymera her purple partner in crime, who was, like her, covered in thick layer of clothing accompanied with a hood, that covered his muzzle, so it looked like inside of his cape was nothing but darkness.
"Who do you have me for? I kn
