Something moved along my skin and I pulled off my ritual
garment. Wrapped around my left upper arm was the dark spiked tail of my
My dragon.
The tattoo shimmered as she moved, the sensation like that
of silk sliding along my skin.
Aaraeth? I asked.
I am here… came her reply in my head. 
She was separate but part of me at the same time.
Ashe cleared his throat but didn’t look away from my naked
body. Logical thought told me that I should cover myself or turn away, but
after the mental bond that we’d shared before – the gesture felt wrong. Ashe
was connected to me now, I felt it deep within my bones.
Closing the space between us, he reached out and touched my
skin where my dragon, Aareath moved across my body.
