Saleth had to wonder how Drake could be so laid back in this kind of setting. It wasn't exactly a place to be humorous, that was for sure. Still, she hadn't gone so far as questioning him about it. Everyone, most likely, had their own different ways of coping with things. Despite Saleth's hissing and spitting at him basically, Drake maintained a calm demeanor as he retorted to what she had said.
Of course, she didn't think she was the only one tortured. Saleth's way of dealing with her own life was different than Drake's and Lana's. She didn't cope by laughing things off. In fact, she didn't exactly feel like laughing at anything anymore. As she had stated to Lana, she couldn't find humor in things after what she had been through. After stating that laughter was the best medicine and that she should have a lifetime supply of it, Saleth rolled her eyes. There wasn't any way that anyone was going to get her to laugh if she didn't want to. However, what he said about her wings made her take pause. Those holes in his wings...did that mean he couldn't fly anymore?
Drake didn't say anything else before walking down the hall and out of sight. Saleth watched him go, her annoyance starting to ebb away now that he was away from her. Lana had come over and hugged Saleth. Blinking, she looked down at her and heard what she was saying. "...It's not your fault. I just get annoyed easily." Lana compared Drake's laidback nature to her husband's, stating that her husband had been more laidback than Drake. Riley, her son, was even laidback when he accepted the fact he had been turned into a woman. She guessed that Riley had a good nature to just accept what he was. Saleth knew she wouldn't have been happy if she had suddenly turned male after being married to a male. Of course, Saleth was glad no such thing had happened to her. On top of it, how could Drake imply he couldn't fly so casually like that? Didn't it bother him?
"I know I'm not the only one who was tortured badly. It's just been too recent for me to simply laugh things off...I'm still trying to adjust to being free again. Trying to act normal again...."
When Lana urged them to follow Drake, Saleth let out a bit of a sigh. If he didn't push her buttons, she would be fine. The two of them made their way down the hallway toward where Drake had gone. There, they had found all sorts of creatures and not a single one was a human being. Saleth looked around with curiosity. There were other dragons here but the way that Drake had reacted to her told her what she had suspected already. None of them were like their kind. No wonder Drake had stated that it was good to see not all of their kind was dead. There was a lot of cheering amongst the prisoners, Lana was pretty popular amongst them all.
As had glanced back, where Elizabeth had to be somewhere. Were they just going to leave the little girl on her own? Then again, she had run off. There wasn't any way for Saleth to try to find her at this point. Saleth's sense of smell wasn't something she could use in the prison with so many scents in the air, especially now that she was so close here to the other prisoners. Drake seemed to be waiting for them, Saleth only following when Lana decided to head over.
