Tamri didn’t want to steal the dragon. She only needed to borrow it for a little while.
She watched from beneath a canal bridge as the huge creature exited the iron gates, her bare feet sinking slowly into the mud. She’d never been this close to one of the beasts before. It had a reptilian head and a long tail with a barbed knot swinging at the end. The scaled body was dark red, and scarlet feathers covered its wings, making it look like a mix between a lizard and a bird of prey.
The ruins of a grand manor house were visible beyond the dragon’s arching back before the iron gates clanged shut. Guards lined the thick stone walls around the manor, protecting its contents, and murky canals circled the island on which it sat.
Tamri got ready to move as the dragon ambled toward her bridge on all fours, its distended belly sagging to the muddy path. It would be vulnerable while crossing the canal, if you could ever call such a beast vulnerable.
The dragon turned its lizard-like head toward her, and the morning sunlight glinted off a mouthful of teeth longer than Tamri’s thumbs. She crouched a little lower. It was still well before noon, but a pungent aroma was already rising from the swampy canal. Tamri wiped sweat off her forehead and adjusted a scratchy linen handkerchief over her mouth and nose, waiting for the signal. She felt jumpy, and she wished the dragon would walk faster. Those guards could spot her at any moment.
