"What is wrong, little one?" Myranda asked.

Myn took another long smell and looked longingly into the distance. It didn't take long for Myranda to figure out what the creature wanted.

"You want to spend some time with him, " Myranda said.

Myn seemed to give a quite spirited answer to the affirmative. The little dragon had been quite affectionate to Leo when they were traveling together. It was only natural she would desire his company in this place.

"He cannot be trusted, you know. He lied to me and did terrible things, " Myranda warned.

The dragon was unswayed.

"That is another thing I was puzzled about. Your friend completed several years of training and left this place seventy years ago, roughly, " he said.

"Seventy? No, that is impossible. I cannot tell precisely how old he is, but he does not look old by any means, " she said.

"Oh, on this there can be no doubt. It is one of the few things about him that we have recorded, " he said.

"But how can you be sure it was his record you found, " she asked.
