Thousands of years into the future the dragon comes back to a place he once knew. Now in ruins, almost nothing is left of it. Stone colors replaced with beautiful green nature surround him now. Holding the orb that is completely dried up of mana.

"Wow! That's the second biggest pearl I've ever seen in my life! Whew, how much it cost ya?"
She snorted derisively. "It's not a 'pearl' you stupid man-cub. It's my egg. This will hatch soon and I will have a cub of my own. Wait a second, what was the largest pearl you ever saw - you know what, no, ignore that, knowing you and the stupid stuff you do, yeah, I don't want to know."
She wrapped her tail around the egg and I approached it cautiously, reaching out to tap the shell. "Do you mind?" she snorted gruffly. "The baby's sleeping."
"How can you tell?"
"I can just tell, all right! Gads, why can't you be like other man-cubs and run away in terror? What are you doing now?"
"Is there a way to tell if it's a boy dragon or a girl dragon?" I asked, laying my head against the egg. I could hear nothing save the emptiness of my own mind. Very quiet.
"I don't know, I guess," she said, shrugging her massive shoulders.
"I thought you dragons knew everything. What a disappointment!"
"Hey, watch it, I can still fry your sorry ass, you hairless ape," she growled. "Anyway, my parents died when I was just a hatchling. Everything I've learned I kind of had to learn on the fly. And I had a couple books, but they were written by men so not very enlightening on dragon culture. Sort of an 'outsider's perspective'."
I shuffled nervously. "Sorry."
"Sorry for what?"
"That your parents died when you were young."
She shrugged and curled around her egg. "Not your fault. It happens." She looked at me. "You know, you're an idiot, but you're ok. For a man-cub."
"Thanks! And you're ok too, for being an ignoramus." She snorted, a lick of flame escaping her nostrils. "Ah, heh, yeah. My bad."
