A Taste of the Future by CoffeeAddictedDragon A Taste of the Future by CoffeeAddictedDragon
Scora hissed and lowered herself, wincing slightly at the sharp pain on her head. Blood began to billow into the cold sea water and the salty ocean only made the wound hurt more. Through the sharp pain, she glared venomously up at the one who had inflicted it upon her. Above her on her newly claimed rock, sat one of her clutch mates. Another female from their brood, she was the same size as Scora, but her head held a more slender, bird like form. Her sister flared her frills and lit up her markings, putting on a full display of aggression and further proving her ownership of the rock. Scora hissed in response, but did not persist. She lit up her own markings, hissing at her sister to prove she was not broken, before slinking off.

It had been a year and a half since they had hatched all of them had gotten along well enough. But things were changing, they were aging and new instincts were beginning to bubble up. Scora could sense the urge to leave and find her own territory growing, she could feel the aggression for her siblings bubbling up within her like boiling water. She could sense a slow change in her mother too, bringing back less prey and becoming more snappish. Already she had chased of few of her other siblings away.

Their time was coming, soon they would need to leave their mother's territory, for once they hit two years old there mother wouldn't see them as children anymore...

They'd be rivals.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally managed to squeeze something out. Working on other things.


Scora and her sibling here are about a year and a half old. About this age is when leviathans begin to see each other more as rivals then brothers and sisters. They're about the size of gators now.


This particular sister will have an important role in the future. She also was the one to give Scora her first scar. The fight came about when Scora got to close to the pink one's rock. Females at this age become possessive of places and things and fight off their siblings for it. It's practice for when they have to REALLY defend territories in adulthood.


I'm thinking of naming pinky here something like Cerana (Serana) or Sckyla.

What do you mean? Do you mean will she take over her mother`s territory, or take her sisters territory or fond her own?
