Efem couldn't believe her long ears after hearing all of the gossip from The CAT about the young Dragon. She continues stroking The CAT's fur and idly scratching him behind the ears while thinking of days of old. “How long has it been since a Dragon was seen in the Realms,” she thought.
“I don’t know… who cares?” The CAT replies. “Dragons are stinky creatures and you can’t eat them. They eat you. I bet this one likes to eat cats too.”
The CAT, not wanting to concede the argument added, “except for the owls. They are pretty smart!” Efem had to agree, the owls were one of the most reliable sources of information in the forest.
“Go pester something else for a bit while I think,” she tells him as she helps him off of her lap. Once he slinks away, she is again able to wonder about the Dragon. As she thinks about seeing one again, slowly she starts to light up. “It would be so good to have them back. I hope they are here to stay.”
“Silly cat! I glow when I am very happy. I miss the Dragons and am happy to see one coming back. I hope I get to see him even if you don’t.”
“I didn’t say I did not want to see him… I just don’t want him to eat me and how come you only glow around animals? I don't see you glowing around Nemmer or your sister,” retorts The CAT.
“As I said, I glow when I am reaaallly happy Cat, which you usually make me. Personally, Nemmer never lighted me up. He is much more suited to my sister's temperament.
