"We have no dragonettes on our world. Flame was unique as far as I know."
Brianna never really knew much about Flame's origins or if he even understood the concept. She hadn't asked but rather accept the red mini dragon for his companionship and even his antics as well as his thieving ways. After all that is how she met him in the first place. HE had found and stolen the Orb of ALl Dragon Control and had the Dark One on his tail almost literally. She had grabbed it from him and then threatened its destruction in the face of that evil being, since there was no escaping form him or his minions.
"I am willing to follow them but that must be a personal choice for each of you."
Alexandria sat on her horse shocked as the two dragonettes flew into the portal. There was absolutely no controlling them... but, they were good friends, and starting to feel more like family since she had nursed Precious back to health. But they said that this vortex now led to their homeworld... Well, perhaps Alexandria could spread Eilistraee's word on a new plane of existence... That would help further her cause even more. She called out to the others.
"I'm going in after them! Whether or not you come, I won't judge you. But I'm going! Until we meet again!"
And with that, Alexandria spurred her horse onward, aiming for the hole which the two dragons had dove into. They weren't getting away this now.
The wood elf nodded her head in acceptance. She had given her word to aid her companions on their quest of ridding the worlds of this Dark One. Her lover had died many years past and it had been so long since she walked on Evermeet that it no longer felt like home to her. Over the passage of years she had become truly nomadic, and there was little left in this world to tie her to it now. Soronuume looked to Brianna and nodded again.
"I have given my word to aid you all on this quest and I will not abandon it now. I will follow wherever this light leads us."
As she moved her mount forward her mind reached out to Xu. She had given her word, but the panther had done no such thing. If Xu joined them onward into this light it would be of her own volition. The cat answered her silent question by stepping up next to elf and mount. She would join them.
Soronuume smiled at her old friend and gripped the reigns before her. Holding up her left hand the elf spoke a word of power and dancing flames sprung up around her hand. She knew not what was beyond the mists, but she would not go on like a defenseless babe. With flames wreathing her hand she gestured forward and without further hesitation druid and panther moved through the tunnel of mist towards the light.

Lorae rides forward to Brianna's knee, "Let us ride Sister of my Heart," Lorae speaks the words that had, until this moment never been spoken on common to a human, for indeed, Brianna had become just that, a sister in the truest sense.
She presses Moon Dancer forward into the vortex. Her heart gladdens as Brianna moves with her.
As each of the riders follow the dragonettes into the vortex each of the horses will slow as the mists obscur the ground. the red mare that Devon galloped into the vortex drops to a walk. Ahead of him the shadowy forms of the dragonettes swirl the mists with their flapping wings, this is what Devon follows into the light. Each of the others who enter can see the mist enschrouded form of the one who entered before them.
Devon is the first to break out of the mists, as suddenly bright daylight fills his eyes. Each of the others do the same. Precious is dancing in the skies doing aerial acrobatics and trilling a song of delight. Flames hovers in mid air looking about in wonder. The horses stopped soon after coming through, their eyes needing time to adjust to the brightness, as do their riders. It had been twilight when they rode into the mists, and now the sun was high overhead.
The five riders now stand on a low rise above a shallow valley a fews miles wide and it slanted off to their right as the small river that ran through it headed off in that direction. Behind them rose a range of white headed mountains and all about the rim of the valley were verdant forests of evergreens and decidious trees. A scattering of trees and bushes also dotted along the meandering river course.
A pair of hawks circled in the bright blue sky searching for a meal. Rabbits, whose warrens were scattered about the hill top, popped up to see who was disturbing them. The warm sun beats down on them and a crisp light breeze blows down the valley.
As Devon dismounts the mare and gives her a pat on the neck and a rub on the muzzle, he speaks up, "Well, we're here. But, where is here? Setting up a camp is a good idea, but the sooner we look for humanoid settlements the better. We are in a new and unfamiliar area without a map. I hope the dragonettes know this area well."
Devon found the area to be beautiful and unspoiled. Wild.
Though he tries to play the tough survivalist, he finds it hard to hide his useasiness with the new surroundings.
Alexandria beamed as Precious came back and was swept up in her embrace. Holding the dragonette close, Alexandria couldn't help but wonder where Flame was... it was unlike him to let Precious out of his sight...
Holding Precious back at an arms length, Alexandria asks, "Precious... where's Flame? Wasn't he with you?"
"Drat my impulsiveness. I'm going to have to remind myself I'm traveling with others and don't have just myself to watch out for. Well, as what for we just traveled through, it appeared to be a portal hidden by magical mist. We may not have been meant to find it, or were meant enter it blindly. That's just a theory, cause I never did cast detect magic on the effects around us."
"I myself detected magical signatures that were either entirely the mist, or something hidden. Devon, your theory may be correct... though I'm thinking that the mist itself was somewhat magical, or Soronuume's spell would have blown it away. This world now seems completely new, and we should do best to find some form of sentience around here other than ourselves."
Alexandria continues to hold Precious, but guides her horse slowly over next to Brianna, to see Flame again, and also to keep the two dragonettes close. If a battle broke out, if they tried to fly back to each other, they would be easy targets.
