Oliver's eyes lit up the moment he saw her.
"Are you...a dragon!" he squealed with delight.
The green floral, elemental stared at the young-ling human as a slight smile was born on her leathery face.
"Yes dear one." she replied warmly, her voice a firm but gentle rumble in the early morning air.

The elemental watched with mild amusement as the child lowered his head quaking ever so slightly as he continued to watch her.
"No dear one." she gently reassured "I wouldn't have any friends if I ate them...now would I?"
