(Warning, lots of vore.)
In the middle of a desert, or more like a sandy wasteland. A boy awoke, opening his eyes slowly. Panic starting to seep into his mind upon seeing the sand. He put his hand on the back of his dark brown hair, removing his hand quickly afterwards with a pained expression. He looked over seeing a backpack. Slowly he crawled across the burning sand and opened it, finding a half empty bottle of water, a bandage, and a note saying good luck. He let out a low growl crushing the note, tossing it aside, then he put the backpack on and started walking in a random direction.
A few miles away, a female dragon with vibrant purple scales flew, enjoying the desert heat.
The boy continued on, shielding his eyes with one hand. Dehydration was already kicking in, but he didn't want to drink the water 'till he absolutely had to.
He reached the top of a sand dune, letting out an irritated laugh as he saw miles upon miles of desert. He started shaking his head then pressed on just for something to do.
The dragon was still flying. She flew over some ruined sand, along with a small piece of paper. She landed to see what it was. She carefully picked it up and read it, she gasped when she did. She launched herself back into the air following the tracks in the sand.
The boy's pace slowed to almost a crawl, before finally, he collapsed.
She kept flying, seeing a dark figure up ahead. As she got closer, she saw that it was a boy, collapsed on the sand. She landed, spraying sand everywhere. Then she debated on what to do.
He felt a tremor, slowly he turned over seeing the dragon, but he had no reaction to it. Instead he reached into his backpack grabbing the bottle of water and drinking it with his eyes closed. A short while later he opened his eyes again, seeing that the dragon was still there. Quickly he repeated the action multiple times before finally realizing it was real, and started crawling back in fear.
She looked at him, confused by his actions. Then she started growling in curiosity.
His eyes widened, hearing her growling. Causing him to get more fearful of her, he started to get up, but his legs gave in instantly from his lack of energy. He let out a sigh, then closed his eyes while shielding his face with his arms, waiting for whatever she was going to do.
She crouched down, her growling turning into small coos. She hovered above the boy, shading him.
He removed his arms from his face, letting out a gasp, seeing the dragon standing over him.
She broke the silence. "What are you doing out here little one?" She asked, looking over him. "What happened back there?" She said pointing her nose in the direction from which she came.
He stalled up a bit from her talking then finally he said. "I... wish... I knew."
She looked at him sadly. "You don't know?..."
He looked at her, now growing curious, but still concerned on her intentions. "No... I have no clue... I felt something hit me, then I woke up here." He said, crawling back slightly.
"Oh, you poor thing." She said. "Do you need help?"
He looked at her nervously. "I... uh... yeah sort of, but I wouldn't want to trouble you." He said backing up further, trying to get out of her reach.
She walked with him. "It would be no trouble at all...What would you need me to do?" She asked.
"I... need to get out of this desert." He replied nervously, as he stopped crawling, since it was obviously pointless.
"I will get you out..." She said, looking at him. "May I pick you up?"
"Uh... yes." He said, giving a audible gulp.
She bent down and picked him up. "We are going to have to fly... Do you want me to hold you or do you want to ride on my back?"
He started to shake when she grabbed him. "I don't have enough strength to hold on, so I guess carry me." He said, his dehydration showing it's effects.
"Alright." She stood up on her hind legs. She crouched then sprung up, leaping into the air. With a few flaps of her wings she gained more height. She looked down at the boy in her arms. "Are you alright?"
"Not really no, the lack of water and heat is getting to me." He replied.
"You need to rest?" She asked. "There is no water for many miles. We need to leave the desert first."
"Rest sounds good." He replied, wiping sweat off his forehead.
"Uh... can you sleep in my arms?..." She asked, not thinking it would be easy.
He looked up at her nervously. "Well where else would I sleep?"
She mumbled something quietly.
"What?" He asked, growing more nervous.
"Nothing...I wasn't thinking..." She said, not wanting to scare him.
"It's fine go ahead and say it." He replied.
"You could sleep inside me... in my belly..."
"What?! No! Please don't eat me." He pled.
She held him close. "Don't worry, I won't...I told you...I wasn't thinking."
"It's okay, I understand it was just a suggestion, but wouldn't that kill me?" The boy asked, a bit calmer.
"No, I don't eat anything, ever, so I can't digest anything..." She stated.
The boy stayed silent for at least a minute. "Okay I guess you could... uh... eat me. As long as you promise I won't be... well you know... melted."
She looked down at him in surprise. "Really?...I-I promise... you will be fine..." She said, floating towards the ground.
"Okay... then go ahead..." He said.
The dragon flew down to the ground, landing harshly on two legs. She collapsed, not able to land on her hind legs. She got up and pulled the boy back up. "Sorry... I was trying to land without hurting you..."
"It's okay... I doubt that was anywhere close to being eaten." The boy said, with a quite groan.
"I bet that was worse... at least for me..."
"Yeah, for you anyways." He replied, not trying to sound rude.
The dragon grabbed him, disregarding his comment. She slipped her tongue out and licked his neck and face. "Ready?..."
The boy cringed when the muscle touched his skin. "I... guess..." He said shaking nervously.
The dragon lifted him above her maw. "Please don't be scared... you'll be alright..." Then she dropped him in.
He landed softly on her tongue. Laying his head down, closing his eyes, but he never responded to her. He laid still besides his nervous shaking. He sighed at the moister that surrounded him, enjoying it for some reason he wasn't sure of.
The dragon gulped multiple times, pulling him into her throat. She felt him travel down, then land in her stomach. She murred. "Are you alright in there?"
"I suppose, it's just scary being in here." He replied, curling up.
"There's no reason to be scared, I will keep you safe in there. You will be fine."
"I know, but my instincts are telling me otherwise." He replied, still not sure if the dragon was telling the truth.
"It might be hard to believe that... but my stomach couldn't hurt you even if it wanted." She said, trying to reassure him.
"Alright... I believe you. How long till I get to come out?" He asked, stretching out as far as the stomach would let him.
"I will let you out when I find water for you, unless you ask to come out." She said nuzzling her belly.
"Okay, then I guess wake me when you find water." He said, smiling to the nuzzling then he closed his eyes. Falling to sleep almost instantly to her heart beat.
She smiled then took off again. "Goodnight..." She whispered, flapping her wing to gain height.
The boy continued to roll around and snuggling the flesh around him.
The dragon murred, loving the movement inside her.
After a long time of flying, the terrain started to change. There were patches of dry grass here and there. And eventually, she spotted what looked to be a small body of water. She swooped down to it, landing at it's shore. She saw the moon's reflection on the still water. She started to gag and clench her stomach, feeling the boy come up. He was in her mouth, she started to lick all over him, then let him out in her arms. "Wake up..." She said quietly.
He opened his eyes slowly, his shirt was heavy with saliva. With a small growl he wiped some saliva off his face, shaking it off. "Hi..." He finally said, smiling that he was still in one piece.
She looked down at him in the darkness. "Hello..." She smiled, then set him down.
He looked around for a second before noticing the water. He walked over to it rather quickly, even in his condition he was quick. He started taking in as much water as possible. After he got his fair share he walked back over to the dragon. "Thank you." He said, hugging her neck.
She was surprised by the hug, but she returned it, licking his cheek. "Don't worry about..." She smiled.
"How can I repay you?" He asked, letting go and taking a step back.
"You don't need to... It was nothing..." She said laying down, looking at the boy.
"Are you sure? I mean I would have died if you didn't help me." He said, putting his hand on her snout.
She nuzzled his hand, smiling even more. "Well, if you think it's that important to pay me back...Then..." She stopped, thinking.
"You want to eat me again, don't you?" He asked, this time smiling instead of shaking.
"That would work." She said, licking his hand.
"Okay, just let me out in the morning please." He said, rubbing her tongue.
She purred, opening her maw, wanting him to go in himself.
Slowly he crawled over her teeth. Looking at the pink flesh around him, feeling her warm breath blow on him as it escaped her throat. Finally after a few seconds maybe even a minute. He laid down, ready to be eaten... again.
The dragon slowly closed her maw, sealing him in. She started licking him all over, then after a minute or so, she swallowed, sending him to her stomach.
He laid there smiling, as he rubbed the stomach walls softly.
The dragon laid her head down murring. She closed her eyes, but she opened them again. "Wait... Human... I never asked... What is your name?"
"Oh right its Leon, how bout you?" He asked.
"My name is Laynette, but I like to be called Layn." She introduced herself.
"Nice to met you, officially that is, and thank you again for saving me." He said.
"You're welcome Leon." She said a big smile on her muzzle.
He just smiled and laid his head against the stomach wall, not tiredly but relaxed.
The dragon got up and jumped into the air, flying to find a new home, out of the desert.
Leon just continued to relax, rubbing the stomach lining every now and again, but the main thing he loved was listening to her heart beat.
Layn purred at the rubs. Searching for a suitable home.
Leon continued to lay still feeling the slight movements of the stomach around him. Finally he noticed they were moving. "Hey where are we going?" He asked confused.
"A new home... for me at least. Why?" The dragon answered.
"Oh... I was just wondering if I could stay with you, since it's pretty obvious someone back where I live didn't want me there anymore." He replied.
"I'd love that!" She said, getting excided.
He smiled then said. "Great, just don't eat me all the time, I mean it's nice in here, but fresh air is nice too."
She smiled. "We'll see about that." She laughed.
He rolled his eyes knowing he wasn't going to win. "Fair enough." He replied with a smile.
"Now go to sleep so we can explore our new home." She suggested. "We'll be there by the time you wake up."
"I'll try, but I'm not really tired." He replied, patting the stomach floor.
"Alright, I just don't want you to be tired when we get there." She said smiling.
"May I ask why?"
"Wouldn't you like to be nice and awake when you first see your new home?" She said.
"Oh yeah, good point." He said, snuggling into the flesh as far as possible.
Layn shuddered, loving that feeling. "Goodnight, my little snack!" She said patting her white belly with a claw.
"Yeah I guess that is what I am huh?" Leon asked.
She smiled, nodding. "Yeah, sometimes..."
"So far always..." He said, giving a chuckle. The dragon let out a giggle as well. "Are you ever going to eat me by force?" Leon asked, sort of nervous.
"Uh...maybe... If it's an emergency...or a game..." She responded.
"Emergency? What kind of emergency would call for you to eat me against my will?" He asked.
The dragon gave it some thought. "Umm... if you are in a chase with something big, or if you are badly hurt..."
"Alright, that seems fair." He agreed.
The dragon started to dive. "Change of plans." She yawned. "I want to sleep... we won't be there for a while..."
"Well if you're going to sleep can I come out?" Leon asked.
"Uh... okay... But why do you want out?" The dragon asked.
"Well I'm not tired and I don't want to be trapped in here." The boy replied.
"Aww, okay." She landed, she started to bring Leon back up her throat. He appeared in her maw, so she bent to the ground and let him out, but not after giving him a quick lick.
He stood back up, wiping saliva of his face again. "Thanks." He said, taking in a breath of fresh air.
"Just promise you won't wander off too far or run away." She said. "Or I will keep you inside me forever..." She said, her tone serious.
He looked over at her, his pupils widening. "I-I promise." He said with fear in his voice.
"...Alright... I'll see you in the morning then..." She said, laying down, resting her head on her paws. "Goodnight..." Then she closed her eyes, falling into a world of amazing dreams.
Leon walk over to her and took a seat on the ground, leaning against her stomach. Then he started think what she meant by forever. Was she lying the whole time and she could actually digest him, was he her prisoner, a chew toy if you will. He didn't know what to make of it, but his trust level with her had drastically dropped. That's one thing he did know.
Leon opened his eyes, waking up seeing the sun rising above the horizon. He turned around noticing he was still next to the dragon. He got up stumbling slightly, still in his groggy state. He walked a little ways away, leaning up against a tree looking back at the dragon, his savior, his captor? He still wasn't sure if he could trust her anymore, but it didn't matter he was her chew toy and if he ran he would never get the chance to walk again.
Laynette cracked an eye open, a few seconds later she opened the other.
Leon continued with his deep thought, now looking at his shoes.
The dragon lifted her head, looking for Leon. She finally spotted him, leaning against a tree. She sighed, she didn't want to have to pretend to keep him for ever.
He looked over at her giving a nervous gulp.
"Good morning." She said happily to Leon.
"Uh... good morning... Layn." He said, forcing a smile.
She smiled. "So are you ready to continue to our new home?" Layn asked.
"Yeah, can I ride on your back?" Leon asked, not wanting to re-enter her maw.
The dragon looked at him, confused. "Okay... But I thought you didn't mind being inside me?"
"I don't, I just want to try something different." Leon said nervously.
"Alright...Get on..." She said, weary of Leon's behavior.
Hesitantly Leon walked over to her, climbing up her scaled neck, then wrapping his arms around her. "Okay, ready."
"Hold on tight!" She announced, then sprang to her feet and jumped into the air. Flying away, to find a new home.
Leon obeyed exactly what she said, and held on as tight as possible, without choking her.
Once they reach a suitable altitude, Layn leveled out, just flying. "So... Leon... What kind of place to you want to live in?" She asked over the wind.
"As long as its not burning hot or freezing cold, I don't really mind." Leon said, still trying to think of a way to escape.
"Alright. It may take a while to find the right place. We are still in a very hot climate." She stated.
"I noticed..." He said, wiping some sweat off his neck.
As Layn continued to fly she started to see something in the distance. They were rapidly approaching it. From what she could tell, it looked like a city.
Leon grew a smile upon seeing the city.
The dragon was coming upon the city fast. She banked ever so slightly, so they would be flying near the edge of the city. Not straight through the busiest part of it.
Leon started to say something, but didn't want to sound too suspicious, so he just bit his tongue and kept quite.
The dragon looked down, watching as they passed the human civilization.
"Could you carry me Layn?" Leon asked, his arms getting tired from holding on.
"Huh?" She turned her head around, looking at Leon. She had almost forgotten he was on her back.
"Could you carry me? My arms are getting tired." Leon repeated.
"Oh... Sure. Sorry..." She said thinking. "We might need to land to move you... Unless you feel like free falling?"
"Are you sure you'll catch me?" He asked, looking down at the ground nervously.
"I was joking, I won't let you fall... And yes I would catch you."
"Oh... so are we going to land then?" He asked.
"If I can find a place to then yeah." She answered.
Leon let out a sigh, feeling the strain on his arms.
Layn dove suddenly, landing next to a big warehouse.
Leon watched her dive down to the ground before finally realizing he was free falling. "Damn it! Layn!" He yelled in his free fall.
Layn looked up to see Leon falling. She jumped into the air, racing to catch the boy. She was coming up fast. "I got you!" She yelled, opening her maw, slowing down.
He saw what she was planning and started to panic even more. He closed his eyes then suddenly he found himself surrounded in moister.
Layn didn't even have to swallow, the speed he was falling at pushed him right down her throat. She gasped and gagged, not expecting that out come.
Leon curled up terrified that he was never going to see light again.
Layn landed, she moved her muzzle to her stomach. "Do you just want to just stay in there for the rest of the way?" She asked, oblivious to his fear.
"No!" He replied almost immediately.
The dragon was taken aback by his tone and speed. "Okay..." She said, a bit saddened. She started to regurgitate him, eventually letting him out by her paws. "Why are you acting so strangely all of a sudden?"
He didn't move, he just stayed still on the ground. "You said... you'd keep me inside forever if I wondered off... I'd die from starvation or dehydration if you kept me in there forever." Leon answered, crawling away from the dragon.
"You seriously think I'd let you die, especially inside me?" She asked, hurt a bit.
"Well you certainly sounded serious about keeping me in there forever, so yeah maybe..." Leon said, climbing to his feet.
"I tried to sound like that, so you wouldn't run... I didn't mean to scare you so much"
"I never planned on running in till you said that."
"Oh..." She sighed. "...Do you still want to be with me now, since I told you the truth?"
"Yeah, but don't ever do what you suggested earlier please." Leon said, going back to her threat.
She shook her head. "I wouldn't dare." She said.
Slowly Leon walked back over to her, putting his hand on her lower jaw. "Okay... you can eat me then... just go a bit slower, that last time kind of hurt."
"It hurt me too. I didn't plan on that happening." She said, slipping her tongue out and licking Leon's hand again.
Leon smiled, rubbing her tongue like he did last time. "I know you were going to swallow me, but not that fast. Anyways go ahead, just make sure to go slower." He said, taking a step back.
She murred, leaning forward, gently wrapping her muzzle around Leon's body. She pulled all of him inside her maw, closing it and letting him sit there.
He continued to rub her tongue as he sunk into the soft flesh. Then he looked back at her flexing throat still slightly nervous if he would come out again, but eventually he shrugged his doubts off and continued his rubbing.
The dragon purred, content on leaving the human where he was.
Leon noticed the purring, making him smile. "If you want I could stay here for a bit, instead of swallowing me." He suggested.
The dragon tried to nod, since she couldn't speak. She gripped Leon with her tongue, then stood up and hopped back into the sky. Once she was high enough, she released her tongues grip.
"I'll take that as a yes." He said laying down, then started to rub her tongue again, this time in a different spot.
Layn murred, flicking her tongue at Leon's face. Smiling on the outside.
Leon laughed for a few seconds, then went back to relaxing. He reached up and started rubbing the roof of her mouth, sighing as her warm breath continued to engulf him every few seconds.
She started giggling, Leon's rubs tickling her.
He started to hear her giggling, making his smile turn to a grin. He started to rub a bit faster, laughing quietly while doing so.
She started to thrash her body. She pinned him to the roof of her mouth to get him to stop.
He let out a groan followed by more laughter. "Okay I'll stop, just let me down."
She complied and licked Leon in the face again.
He continued to laugh, rubbing her tongue again. "Most people would be freaking out right now, but for some reason I'm actually really enjoying your company, even if I'm pretty much a chew toy to you, in this case a piece of candy." Leon said, laying down on his stomach with his cheek on Layn's tongue.
She murred, loving his flavors and rubs. When she heard what he said she smiled and licked him.
He smiled then let out a yawn. "Hey wake me when we get there." He said closing his eyes, falling asleep quickly afterwards from the warmth that surround him. The dragon smiled and wrapped her tongue around Leon, like a makeshift blanket.
She flew for a few more hours, flying into the night. Ever since Leon fell asleep she had increased her speed. She was rapidly approaching a forested mountain. She smiled. That would be their new home. When she reached the mountain, she landed. She searched through the night, finally finding a cave halfway up the mountain. She confirmed it belonged to no one and she went in and laid down, yawning, flashing Leon for a second before closing her maw again and falling asleep.
Leon woke later, he didn't know how much later it was since he was in darkness, but he felt rested so he knew it had been awhile. He felt something warm and wet draped over him, it took him a few seconds to realize it was Layn's tongue, but he was positive it was when he saw he was still surrounded by teeth. "Hmm she actually kept me in her mouth." He said surprised, but went back to being quite when he noticed she was sleeping.
Layn was in an amazing dream, she had started purring because of it.
He started grinning upon hearing her purrs. "I wonder what she's dreaming about?" Leon whispered, rubbing her tongue again.
Layn continued to enjoy her dream. Outside she grabbed her tail, hugging it to her chest. She moved her head to her chest and stuck her tongue out with Leon on it. She licked her tail, Leon in between her tail and tongue. She brought her tongue back in and sighed, ceasing to make any noises or movements.
Leon let out a quiet laugh, as he got re-adjusted on her tongue. He started to rub her tongue again, but decided he didn't want to take the chances of waking her up and stopped.
The dragon started to wake. She licked her chops, and slowly fluttered her eyes open. She stretched, and let out a yawn, feeling Leon on her tongue. She let him out on the ground. "Morning." She said, giving him a small lick.
Leon continued to keep his smile as he stood up. "Morning to you too."
"So, how was your sleep?" She asked.
"Surprisingly great, how about you?" He asked, stretching.
"It was amazing, I had a wonderful dream." She said happily.
"I noticed." He said grinning. "What was it about?"
"What? What do you mean you noticed?" She asked, embarrassed.
Leon let out a slight laugh. "Well for starters you licked your tail... with me still on your tongue, and I'm pretty sure I saw you hugging it too."
She blushed. "Oh... sorry..." She said, really embarrassed now.
"It's fine." Leon said, pausing for a second. "So... what was your dream about anyway?"
She blushed again. "Well, it was about you and me... I was laying on my back and you were rubbing my belly, for a long time. Then I hugged you and gave you a lick..."
"Oh..." Leon said, now blushing too.
"Anyway, enough about dreams... How do you like our new home?" Layn asked.
Leon took a second to look around, then he brought his gaze back to Layn. "I love it, I even have my own bed." He said, looking at Layn's stomach.
She giggled. "Lucky you, I still need to make myself a nest to sleep in."
"Well look at it this way, at least you don't have to sleep soaked in dragon saliva." Leon joked.
She laughed as well. "But that adds to the experience!"
"I guess you could say that... by the way why'd you keep me in your mouth all night?" Leon asked, still confused why she never swallowed him after he fell asleep.
"I don't know, I guess i was just too tired and fell asleep first. Why, did you not like it?"
"It's not that I didn't like it, I'm just surprised you didn't swallow me before you went to sleep." Leon admitted.
"Well one reason could be your taste. I loved having your taste on my tongue all night."
"As a human I find that strange, but you being a dragon it makes sense." Leon said, blushing slightly.
Layn had an idea. "Hey... why not do it again tonight? I mean we both like it..." She suggested. "...or right now..." she said quieter.
Leon stared at her for a moment, thinking what to do. "If you want we could right now, not like we have anything else to do..." Leon stated.
The dragon smiled, and got closer to him, licking his face. "Alright."
Leon continued to stand still, waiting to be pulled back in the dragon's jaws. "Whenever you're ready, just watch your teeth, cause I think you gave me this last time." He said turning his arm over, showing a shallow, but long cut going from his shoulder to his elbow.
"Oh! I'm sorry!" She said, licking the cut. "Do you think I did this when we were sleeping?"
He started to rub her snout smiling. "I'm not sure, maybe, but it doesn't matter I'm fine, really I am." He insured.
The dragon purred. "Alright..." She said nuzzling his hand.
"Like I said whenever you're ready, just be careful I'm only a human, so it doesn't take much to hurt me." He said, patting her snout one last time, then he took a step back.
"I'll be careful." She smiled, licking at his face. Then she opened her maw and hovered it above Leon. She lowered it down on him. She pulled him in and closed her maw, purring.
"You seem to really enjoy it when I'm on your tongue, I'm guessing I'm the first human that didn't run away?" Leon asked as he made himself comfortable.
Layn nodded, knowing he felt her answer. Then she just lay down where she was, enjoying her human.
Leon just started laughing. "I'm friends with a dragon, that most people would call evil and run on sight, but instead I've become a piece of human candy for her..."
The dragon giggled, keeping her mouth closed. She then started to treat Leon as the candy he said he was. She sucked on him and wrapped her tongue around his body, enjoying her candy even more.
He noticed the extra attention instantly. He started laughing even harder when she wrapped her tongue around him. "Stop... that it... tickles." He said, trying to catch his breath.
She continued, smiling, thinking of this as payback for him tickling her the night before.
"Ah... come on... this isn't... fair I can't... make you stop..." Leon said, getting a idea right after. He struggled as much as he could, surprisingly he got free of her tongue. Just long enough to dive into her throat.
Layn choked, she started hacking. But she eventually swallowed Leon. "Don't.... do that... again..." She breathed heavily.
Leon laid in her stomach still smiling slightly. "Sorry, but you nearly crushed to get me to stop, all I did was make you swallow me... that sounds strange and unnatural." Leon explained.
"I couldn't fly when you were tickling me, I had to stop you..." She said. "And I mainly don't want you to do that because you almost went down my wind pipe, I doubt you want to be in my lungs."
"Yeah... good point..." Leon said then went silent.
The dragon nuzzled her belly. "Enjoy it in there, I need to start making a nest...Or do you want to help?"
"Nah, I'd just get in the way, I'll stay in here and keep you company." Leon replied, stretching out 'til he hit the stomach walls.
She purred. "Alright." She said, then walked out of the cave, starting her hunt for nest supplies.
"So... how many other humans have you eaten?" Leon asked, trying to start a conversation.
"Actually, not that many, I don't like being mean, so I only ate them if they gave me permission... You are like... my third..."
"What happened to the others?"
"You know how I sometimes ask you if you want to sleep in my belly. They always say no, and run away at night." She said.
"Oh... sorry to hear that, but I never plan on running off." He insured. "But I do need to get food and water."
"Yeah, I can understand that, but I will still be nearby when you get food and water."
"That's fine, but I can wait awhile." He said, starting to rub her stomach again. "Until then, I'll just keep you full."
"Thanks." She purred, rubbing Leon through her stomach.
"No problem." He said smiling, from the rubbing. "One question, why don't you need to eat to survive?"
The dragon stopped. "Ummm... I don't know..." She said nervously.
"Why do you sound nervous?" Leon asked, getting his own nervous tone.
"It may be better if I just stay quiet..."
"Umm... could you let me out? I don't really feel comfortable in your stomach now."
"Okay, just don't run off..." She said, hacking and clenching. Leon traveled up, then into her maw, she licked him once then set him down.
"I won't run, I already said I wouldn't, I just don't feel safe inside your stomach now..." He replied sadly.
"Will you ever feel safe in there again?..." She asked.
"I don't know, for all I know you could digest me this whole time..."
She hesitated. "Uh..."
Leon noticed her hesitation, he backed up slightly, squinting his eyes. "Did those others really run away? Or did you, just get bored with them and... you know..."
Layn didn't answer and started crying. She grabbed Leon and hugged him. "...I-I-I'm... s-s-sor-rry..." She cried.
Leon was shocked by the hug, but he was even more scared by her words. 'Was I right?, was she going to digest me?' He thought. Hesitantly he asked. "Sorry... about... what?"
She sniffed. "L-lying to y-you..." She said tears falling from her muzzle.
"Umm... about what?" He asked, laying completely limp in her arms.
"What do you me everything?" He asked getting more scared and starting to struggle slightly.
She felt him struggle, and let him go, looking down in sadness. "I-I mean everything..." She said, closing her eyes. "My abilities, my past... A-all of it..."
The stress was getting to him as well as the building fear. His legs started to feel weak and he started to grow light headed. "So... what is the truth?"
"The-the t-truth? Ab-bout what?..."
"Well you said everything you told me was a lie... so all of it..." Leon replied frozen.
"Ummm... w-well... I can digest things, an-and th-those people..." She hoped he would get it.
His eyes widened with fear then with sadness. "I see..." He said dropping his head.
"But I've changed!" She said, trying to restore what has been wronged. "That was over a century ago! I really do like you... I just didn't want to scare you to death..."
Leon looked at her debating if he should trust her. "How long were you going to pretend to be my friend 'til you..." He stopped, not able to finish the sentence.
"No no no... I wouldn't do that to you... ever...You are my real friend..."
He looked back at her choking back tears. "W-why should I be-believe you? You-you've been lying to m-me this whole time."
"Just leave..." She said, sadly. "If you can't trust me then don't be with me..."
"I..." He started to say, but gave up. He gave one last glance at her then walked out. After a few minutes he stumbled upon a body of water and took a seat on a rock, dropping his head again.
She watched him go. "Don't leave..." She whispered sadly, but he was gone. She turned around and sulked back to her resting place and lay down, crying.
He continued to sit on the rock, before long he laid down looking up at the sky. Watching the clouds drift by. He gave a slight smile remembering all the good times, and a slight chuckle when he thought about the dream she had and how she acted. Then he closed his eyes letting a tear roll down his cheek.
Layn had now cried herself to sleep. Her body wanting to shut down and recover.
Leon eventually got up and got some water, then started to walk in a random direction.
Layn woke with a start. She got up, a bad feeling in the pit of her stomach. She walked outside, and walked away. She had a bad feeling about something, but she only wished she knew what.
Leon stopped then climbed up a tree to see if he could see anything worth walking towards. "Great I am so lost!" He said irritated, climbing back down the tree. About half way down a branch snapped making him fall. He landed hard on his back, knocking the wind out of him.
Layn still walked to an unknown destination, getting nervous.
Leon slowly got up, but froze upon hearing growling. "So you decided to kill me after all." He said in a sad tone.
Layn's pace got faster, she had no clue what she was doing.
He turned around to see nothing, then he heard multiple growls at once. "That's not Layn..." He said nervously, still not sure what it was or how many of them there were.
She had started sprinting, hurrying for a reason that was beyond her.
Finally the owners of the growling showed themselves. Leon started to back up as a pack six wolves walked out if the brush. As soon as Leon took one step they attacked knocking him down. He let out a scream of pain as one bit down on his right leg.
Layn heard a scream, now knowing why she was out here. She ran as fast as she could. She reached the source, seeing Leon under a pack of wolves. She roared, scaring away the only wolf not trying to tear at Leon.
Leon continued squirming and screaming as they chewed at him. He tried to push them off, but he only angered them more making them bite harder. He was in so much pain he didn't even hear the roar, only the crunch of his own bone and the growling in his face.
Layn growled, swiping at one wolf, knocking it out after a single swipe. She snarled, getting the attention of the others.
Leon sighed slightly as he felt the pain stop, slipping out of consciousness seconds after.
The dragon fought the wolves, efficiently taking them out one by one. At last, the wolves either be laying unmoving on the ground or had run away. She walked to Leon, frowning as she saw his injuries. She bent down and wrapped her tongue around his body pulling him into her maw. As she was walking back she shed a tear, remembering what Leon used to do on her tongue. But now all he did was lay motionless, the only thing he did to stimulate her tongue was bleed.
Layn got back and lay on her back, leaning against the wall. She let Leon out, setting his body on her chest. Then she just waited.
Hours later Leon woke up with groans of pain and tears. His body felt cold, but what he was laying on was warm. He tried to stand up, but dropped instantly with a scream. He looked down and realized his leg was broken. He dropped his head back down with his eyes closed while grinding his teeth.
"Shhh..." The dragon whispered. "Everything is going to be alright..."
He made no reaction to the voice, he knew who it was. "I'm sorry..." He said weakly.
"We are both at fault." She said. "Mostly me though..."
"I should've stayed..."
"And I should have stopped you... or at least not told you to leave." She said, rubbing the boy's back with her paw. "I'm sorry..."
"I'm glad you didn't stop me... I think that would've just made it worse..." He said, still disturbed about laying so close to her stomach. "Why did you change?" He asked, pulling his legs away from her stomach with his arms.
"What do you mean?...I never changed... I just told you the truth..."
"I mean why did you kill the others, but save me? Twice now."
"It has been over century since the others. A dragon can change, can't she?" She said quietly. Then she whispered. "Plus they never have made me as happy as you have."
"It just bothers me... I mean I've slept where other humans have been killed, and while I slept... I was happy where for others it was agonizing pain..." Leon admitted, groaning from his pain.
Layn cringed. "That maybe so..." She said sadly. "But those humans... they..." She stopped, thinking.
"You don't need to explain yourself... I get it, you're a dragon and humans are prey to you." He said. "I'm prey to you..." He whispered.
She leaned closer to him. "No... You're a friend..." She whispered back.
He looked up at her surprised. "I... don't understand... what makes me so special? I'm just like any other human."
"No, you aren't, you GAVE me permission to eat you, you even enjoyed it. We both had fun when you were in my mouth... Nobody has ever even given me a chance...They just plead for me to end it or to let them go..."
"To be honest I didn't care what you did when you first found me, I was going to die anyway even if you did let me go. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy being eaten even if it sounds really weird, but now it disturbs me." Leon said.
"It disturbs you? Why, just because I told you what really happened?"
"Yes... I was laying where someone was melted alive."
When she heard him say it like that, it made her feel horrible, like a monster even. She looked down at him, frowning. "I'm so sorry, I never thought about it like that..." She said, trying to stop herself from licking him in apology.
"I wish I could say its okay, but I'd be lying to myself and you if I did..." He said sadly, knowing he was just making her feel worse.
Layn didn't respond, instead she closed her eyes and laid her cheek on her chest, right next to Leon.
He looked over at her, feeling bad. She had saved his life twice now and all he was doing in return was hurting her more and more. Slowly he raised his chewed up arm over and started rubbing her lower jaw. With a faint smile, but remained silent.
The dragon, strangely, didn't react to his rubs. She just laid there.
He let out a sigh then lowered his arm back down to his side. "I'm sorry..." He said crying softly.
She slowly lifted her head a little. She closed her eyes, nuzzling the boy. Still not speaking.
He smiled to her nuzzling, knowing it was meant to be a kind gesture, but it only brought pain from his bite wounds. He didn't want to hurt her anymore than he already had, so he just curled his toes and kept quiet.
The dragon's stomach rumbled. Her eyes shot open, and she panicked, hoping Leon didn't hear. But he was practically laying on to of it.
He gulped audibly looking up at her. "Please don't..."
She cursed, ignoring Leon. She hated this, every week or so she needed real food. She wished what she had told Leon when she first ate him was true.
His fear grew when she didn't reply. "Layn..." He said nervously.
She looked down at him. "Don't worry...I'll find something... I won't eat you."
He relaxed a bit, but was still suspicious if she'd keep her word.
She grabbed Leon with her paw, lifting him off of her. She then rolled over and got up. "I know what I'm going to have." She said, walking to the cave's entrance.
"What are you going to have?" Leon asked, laying still and fighting to stay awake.
She looked at him sadly, sorry about his injuries. Then she replied shortly. "Wolf."
"Good..." He said falling asleep.
Layn ran out of the cave, heading right to where the "incident" happened. She smiled when she saw that not only was the wolf she killed still here, but the one she had knocked out was there too. She grabbed one in each claw, lifting one to her maw. She dropped it in and swallowed. Then she quickly repeated the process with the other. Then she ran back to Leon. Once she arrived she laid down by him, wrapping herself around him to keep him warm. She closed her eyes, falling asleep as well.
Leon woke up later sighing that she didn't decide to eat him instead since he fell asleep. He noticed she was sleeping around him. He started smiling remembering her dream again. "If only I never asked..." He whispered.
Layn still slept, her stomach working on digesting the wolves.
Leon could hear gurgling noise coming from her, making him cringe slightly. He started to stand up, but stopped remembering his broken leg. He looked back at her stomach now smiling. "Serves you right."
The dragon smiled in her sleep, feeling movement down by her midsection.
Leon started getting bored, looking around he found some water dripping off the ceiling. Since he had nothing to do he started counting each drop as it fell.
Layn yawned displaying her teeth, then opened her eyes. She looked at Leon. "Oh... you're awake."
Leon jerked his head up looking at Layn. "What? Oh yeah, I have been for awhile now."
"Oh, then why haven't you got up then?" She asked, forgetting something important.
"Uh... the wolves broke my leg bone when they were eating me..." He said stalled and confused.
"Oh my goodness, I forgot! Sorry!..." She said.
He let out a slight chuckle from her reaction. "It's okay, well my leg isn't, but we're okay." He replied.
"Don't you need help with your leg though?" She asked
"I'm sure it'll heal eventually..." He replied.
"Is there anything I could do to help it?" She asked sniffing it.
"I don't know, unless you have the ability to heal me, then not really." Leon replied.
She shook her head, now looking at his cuts, she saw one that was dirty. She wondered. "Hey... I thought humans had to clean their cuts... I saw someone a long time ago do that."
Logan Riley: "Were suppose to, but I don't have anything to clean them." He admitted, not entirely paying attention. For some reason he was still counting the water drops.
She looked at the cuts. "Hmmm..." She licked up his whole leg. She looked at it now. "Hey..."
Leon bit down on his knuckle, expecting the worse. He brought his gaze down to his leg and saw it was clean. "Thanks." He said, looking over at Layn.
She smiled and went to lick his other leg, then both of his arms, then lastly his face, just for fun.
He smiled slightly. "Don't get carried away..."
"I won't." She smiled back.
"Okay..." He said, pulling his leg closer to him, and leaving the broken one stretched out.
"What do you want to do now?... something that won't hurt your leg?" She asked, getting bored.
"You can go do something, I can't think of anything that won't hurt my leg." He said.
"But I don't want to leave you here by yourself..."
Well what did you have in mind then?" He asked.
"Ummm... we could reenact that dream I had..." She suggested shyly, her cheeks turning red.
He looked at her smiling. "As long as I stay on the outside then sure, but I can't walk so you'll have to place me up there." He replied.
Layn smiled, picking up Leon carefully and placing him on her belly.
He found it sort of strange being on her belly, but he just shrugged it off and started rubbing her belly slowly.
The dragon murred for the first time since she had told Leon of her lies.
Logan Riley: Leon smiled to her purring, seeing that she was starting to cheer up.
The dragon continued to murr, still loving the rubs.
"Glad to see your happy again." Leon said as he continued to rub, still slightly disturbed that he was sitting on her stomach.
She started to wag her tail, closing her eyes. Purring like an engine.
He smiled, enjoying the sound, but his mind kept wondering. 'How old were the men she killed.' He wanted to ask, but he didn't want to bring the sore subject back up, even though it was bugging him to death.
"Ohhh... rub up higher..." She suggested, still purring.
It took a second for the thought to process, then finally he complied, rubbing higher. Still thinking of his mosquito like question. Annoying, itchy, and won't go away till you smash it, in this case ask, but he still refused to ask even then.
"Mrrrrr..." She laid her head back, eyes closed, tail thrashing like crazy. "R-r-right-t th-there...mrrrr"
He started laughing, seeing such a massive creature acting like a child.
She wrapped her paws around Leon, squeezing him into her belly. "Mrrrr..." She started rocking from side to side. She bent down and licked him, then laid her head back again.
He cringed when she licked him, but he quickly changed it to laughter. "I'm guessing that was the part of your dream a saw?" He asked still smiling, even if the added pressure she was putting on him filled him with pain from his wounds.
She sighed, closing her eyes, murring some more. Then she fell asleep, Leon still squished into her belly.
He laid there completely still, feeling awkward. He tried to move, but couldn't. He sighed then rested his head on her soft belly, waiting for her to wake back up.
A little over an hour later she peaked open an eye, not realizing she fell asleep.
Leon was now sleeping, from having his ear so close to her heart beat, it just relaxed him a bit more than intended.
She smiled at the slumbering boy. She purred and just let him sleep on her belly.
He continued his rest, then randomly he started shaking violently and shortly after he shot a awake hyperventilating. He looked around for a second then let out a sigh of relief. He looked over at Layn. "Oh... hello..." He said starting to get control over his breathing and heart rate.
"Are you alright? It looked like you were being killed, and felt like it too..." She asked, concerned.
"You have dreams, I have nightmares..." He replied.
"Oh... do you mind sharing? It will help..." She said.
"I... uh... rather I didn't." He said nervously.
"Does it involve me?..." She asked, concerned.
"Yeah... you know how you asked if I was being killed... well I was... by you, you were... digesting me..." He said dropping his head.
"O-oh m-my..." She hugged him to her chest. "W-well that nightmare's over now, you are here with the real me. I will n-never let that nightmare come true." She promised, nuzzling his hair.
"I hope so." He said, still shaking a bit.
"Aww...Don't be like that..." She said sadly. "I wish you could trust me..."
"It's not that I don't trust you, I mean I've been in your stomach multiple times and never did you do anything to me. I just... don't trust your emotions and needs..." He replied.
She sighed. "Is there a way for you to start trusting me fully? Like can I do something to earn your full trust?" She asked, hopeful.
"I don't know how I could get past the fear of being digested, cause in my nightmare you were mad at me for leaving and that's why you did it, and what if you were hungry and you couldn't find any food other than me?" He asked, not entirely wanting a answer.
"I would be mad if you left, but mostly heartbroken, I wouldn't kill you for that..." She tried to reassure him, but she knew it wouldn't help. "And I would rather starve and have you with me."
"Sorry if I have a hard time believing that." He said, referring to the starvation comment.
"I'd never let myself even see you as real food, I would even fly away from you if you thought I was going to eat you." She said, arguing for his trust.
He looked up at her smiling. "Thank you." He said, patting her belly.
She closed her eyes, nodding. "Can you believe me now?..." She purred.
"Yes." He replied happily.
She pulled him into a tight hug. "Thank you..."She said, a tear in her eye.
He laid limp for a second before returning the gesture.
Never releasing the hug, she asks. "Are you ready to live your life... with me?"
"What do you mean? I already said I would stay." He said confused.
"Some reassurance for your dragon?" She said, finally letting go.
"Your dragon?" He said smiling. "I'm pretty sure you're the one in control. And yes I'll stay."
"Not all the time..." She said, talking about when it came to her needing food.
He smiled, patting her belly again.
"Mrrrrr..." Was all she responded with.
"What should we do now?" He asked.
"It's up to you..." She said, smiling at her human.
"Do you want to... eat me..." He said half nervous.
"Oh... Yes, yes yes yes!" She replied, nuzzling Leon and purring.
"I found it pointless to freak out about being in there, since I've already been in there multiple times, yeah maybe people have died in there before, but people die in the world all the time... so how could this be any different." Leon said, reinsuring himself.
Layn smiled at his understanding. She lowered he head to her chest, smiling. "Come on in..." She said, opening her maw right in front of Leon, her tongue rolled out, pretending to be a carpet.
He smiled and slowly walked into her open maw, sitting down on her tongue. Then he started rubbing the back of her tongue.
She murred, closing her maw, licking and sucking on Leon like a piece of candy, smiling happily. She positioned him so that part of him hovered over her throat, questioning if he wanted to go further.
Leon groaned slight from his broken leg pain. Then he noticed he was over her throat. "As long as you're done digesting the wolves. And go slow so it doesn't hurt my leg." He replied nervously.
Layn nodded and Leon fell into her throat. She barely gulped, being careful. She kept gulping little by little, and eventually Leon reached her stomach. She murred, glad to have her friend inside her again. "Are you okay in there?..."
"Yeah... still getting use to... being in a grave, I guess you could call it... but other than that I'm fine." He said slowly relaxing his body.
She frowned, not liking his word choice. She growled sadly, sighing.
He heard her growl making him nervous. "I'm sorry, did I say something wrong? Please don't be mad." He said worried about what might happen next.
She looked at her belly. "I'm not mad... Just a little sad that you still think of my belly as a horrible place..." She said sadly.
"I'm sorry... I wish I had a way to help you understand, but I did let you eat me even then, so that has to say something..." He replied, looking over at his arm, noticing wolf fur stuck to it. He slowly wiped it off, tossing it aside. "Gross... anyways it's not always horrible, like right now for example." He said, patting the stomach floor.
She nodded and purred. "Okay... Wait what's gross?" She asked nervously.
"There was some undigested wolf fur on my arm." He replied, with a disgusted expression.
She frowned. "I should have drank some water first, sorry..." She said, hoping that the fact there was something killed in her only hours ago, didn't scare him.
He sighed wiping more fur off his palm. "It's fine... I guess, as long as I'm not put into the same condition." He said, scratching his head, bringing more fur with his hand as he removed it. "Geez how many did you eat?"
"I ate two...do you want to sleep in my mouth instead?" She asked.
"If you don't mind." He replied.
[12:23:02 AM] Nathan Balogh : Layn started to hack. She felt the human slide back into her maw. She licked Leon clean of fur, swallowing it to let it digest some more. She murred, missing having Leon in here.
"Thanks, now just make sure not to accidentally swallow me." He said rubbing her taste buds like before.
The dragon purred, wanting to reassure the human, but she couldn't. So she just licked him on the face before laying down, enjoying his rubs and taste.
He laid there completely still besides he rubs. Enjoying the feeling he thought he never would come to enjoy again. Questions still lingered in his mind, but he didn't want to ask them. Instead he just relaxed his leg and enjoyed the warmth and purrs around him.
Layn lowered her head and curled up in a ball. She yawned, showing Leon the world one last time. Then she closed her eyes, purring.
Leon's rubs slowly came to a stop as he passed out unexpectedly to the warmth that engulfed him.
Layn smiled and purred, feeling the rubs stop and Leon fall asleep. She sighed and wrapped her tongue around him, keeping him in place. She fell asleep, smiling. She was going to enjoy living with this human.
