Saleth furrowed her brows a little as she crossed her arms when Drake apologized for grabbing onto her legs the way he did. She decided to let this one go since it wasn't like they were in any real danger. If anything, he had almost caused her to fall down. Lightly shaking her head, Saleth allowed her arms to rest at her sides again.
Then, Saleth explained that she had never gambled before in her life. In response to this, Drake admitted that he didn't either.
When Saleth stated that coming back to life so many times, she didn't think possible, Derio responded simply that anything was for his family. According to Derio, he was ten thousand years of age. Well, Saleth wasn't exactly young herself in human years but she was a youngster according to the laws of her kind. Youngster in the sense that she was a young adult. Now that she appeared to be one presently, she wouldn't change in appearance since she had matured to where her kind stopped aging. Derio was ancient, far older than either of them were. Except for maybe Lana but it wasn't certain how old she was. Then, Derio showed them that he could change into the man that Lana said he was and not a girl. Saleth rubbed the back of her head, thoroughly confused.
"...Not sure how you're able to do that...but I've not seen anything like what you two can do." Saleth was also talking about Lana when she said this. She had never met any shifters of any kind. This was a first for her. It was also a first for her to encounter a male dragon of her own kind. She had been looking for others of her own kind of dragon race and hadn't found any until now. She had been taken entirely off guard when she met Drake. Saleth hadn't at all expected to find another of her kind, yet there he was and he had walked right up to them. She knew that this wasn't fake. Drake was real just as much as she was. No, she certainly hadn't been prepared for something like this.
Derio laughed, however, at what Saleth said about Drake and herself. Drake had his back turned so there was no telling what he was even thinking at the time. No doubt, it was just as embarrassing for him as it was for her. Apparently, Derio had said the same thing that Saleth had said about Drake and herself. His mother had been able to tell that Derio's first wife was going to be his first wife. Then, ten wives later, he married Lana. According to Derio, his mother was right about Lana being his final wife. Then, Derio went even further to say that the relationships in his family often started out exactly the way that Drake and Saleth had. Saleth's face turned a brighter red. Needless to say, she was struggling to find words to say in response.
Lana had looked back over at her and said that what Derio said had been true. Leaning in, the Chaos Goddess stated that Derio wasn't the only one getting lucky. Saleth spluttered worse at that. "W-We are not!" she insisted on saying but the other two would likely not believe her no matter how hard she tried. "A-And n-not...that!" Saleth spluttered aloud, redder than red when she had said that to Lana. Thank goodness Drake did not overhear that one. Saleth would have died if he did.
