Chance Encounter

Having no place to retreat,  Gaius the Archivist stood before the dragon, resigned to his fate. But as the magnificient beast opened its mouth to release its inner fires, another thud, much smaller, diverted both the dragon's and Gaius' attention.  A new visitor,  this one a man clad in black and silver armor, had rappeled down from above, to stand next to the dragon.

"What are you doing, Lilli? You can't go eating strangers!"  The man nearly toppled over then, obviously drunk. He removed his helmet and stared at Gaius in wonder. "Do I know you?" he asked.

"It's a long story," Walter whispered coyly as he pointed out the direction to his dragon, Lilli. The beast heaved itself up on its hind legs and started to crawl northward, the ground trembling with each footstep.

The two men followed, Gaius noticing the artwork on the walls as they walked. Strange that they resembled the cave art he once studied in France years earlier...
