Look for the prize on this page.
Oceanus chuckled and changed the subject. “You’re finally seeing her for who she is, aren’t you, little brother?” The formalities were absent. Oceanus spoke to Pyre as his brother, not as his leader for the time being.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Pyre lied, poorly.
This caused an outright laugh to erupt from Oceanus. “Yes, you do.”
He flicked Pyre’s shoulder with his tail. “You haven’t picked on her once since she told us of her plan to raise the mountain.”
“She’s amazing, Oceanus. Father and the others they were so wrong about her. She’s a gift to us from the gods. She has to be! They talk to her! None of us except Rose can talk to them. We were so wrong about her, Oceanus. Father should have let you mate her. She deserves to be an Oni’s mate. You can mate her now you know.” Pyre’s words ran from his mouth in string of nonsense, but Oceanus heard and understood them all.
“Aye. She would make the perfect mate for an Oni. But I have seen the way she looks at you, Pyre. I missed my chance to have her by my side. You, however, have just come into her sights. Stay with her until she wakes, then head home.” Oceanus emphasized home by lifting his head and looking up at the floating mountain.
Pyre let Oceanus’ words roll around in his mind long after his brother had left. As night fell, a wind began to howl through the tunnel the floating mountain and the ground made causing the temperature to plummet in the desert. Pyre watched Rose sleeping, and every so often took his tail to brush off the sand that accumulated on her body.
