Natani: Hey, hang on!
Reni: (thoughts) Oh, hello. You are the other wolf… uh…
Natani: N-Natani. And what do you mean you can’t speak Keidran? I can understand you right now!
Reni: (thoughts) Oh, right. Yes. We dragons “speak” telepathically. It’s universal. You hear my intentions, and as you speak words, I can hear yours.
Reni: (thoughts) I have learned human. But even for me, speaking this way is a necessity. I am limited by my biology just as any creature. If I were to try and speak human out loud in this form, it’s be… well… Ehem…
Reni: Grash itsh griah! Rwar arrr rawrrawrarar!
Flora: Okay, we get it!
Reni: (thoughts) …Sorry. A-anyway, a lot of dragons just rely on telepathy. But as I’ve discovered, the flaw with telepathy is that it only works in real time.
Reni: (thoughts) The people in a memory aren’t real. They don’t have minds for me to read. Even the wolf whose mind I’m in doesn’t translate. People remember their past but not exactly what they were thinking at any given time, usually.
Reni: (thoughts) All I hear are sounds. It’s frustrating and honestly pretty unnerving to suddenly not understand the sounds that people are making.
Reni: (thoughts) That being said, after listening for a while, one name does come up repeatedly. A name I believe may be of importance in all of this…
Reni: (thoughts) Clovis.
