The plan to get to the volcano was quite simple; halfway with the dragons and the rest on foot. It had been decided hours before the pair even set off, Lupo refused to risk Pyk and Nervidlia could only agree. It wasn't as if the two couldn't make it just fine on foot, however it was putting them both on edge. Lupo couldn't remember a time when he didn't have his dragon standing by his side and with a task so daunting hanging over his head, his anxiety was making him snap and scowl. Nervidlia wished he could do something to calm the rabbits nerves, but what could he do? Abandoning Pyk; for Lupo was like giving up a limb and then blind folding himself. Vidlia knew that it had to be done and it was best, he just would have preferred it if it wasn't. Each step of Tabithas feet shook the thin layer of dry dirt on the ground, occasionally creating small dust clouds. Every step was a step closer to going alone. Lupo was gripping Pyk's bone face plate, almost like he might refuse to let go when the time came. Only Nervidlia really knew why he gripped so hard, Pyk was Lupos rock; she kept him grounded through the horrors he had brought upon himself and that the world had thrust at him. She was fine on her own and Nervidlia knew Pyk would take good care of Tabitha as she waited for them to return. He could only hope he could take such good care of her master. Reaching to the side his hand grasped the soft ear, free from its bindings as it always was when Lupo was travelling. The feather soft flesh fell through his hand slightly before Nervidlia got a proper grip and then he tugged very gently, letting its owner know that he was there. No matter what happened he would be by his side.
