Hurt him? So humans were under the convinced ideal that dragons were dangerous! Why would something that believed them to be so dangerous ever become a danger to them? Pandora really couldn't understand why so many of the dragons back home had such a caution, fear and hatred for these frightened and sweet creatures. When he moved forward to touch her, she leaned down to allow it easier, considering she was a good eight feet tall, making her tower significantly over most humans. The hand alongside her head felt nice, once more leading her to question everything she had ever been taught about these kinds, and be even more grateful she had left to explore, found the truth herself. He seemed to be happy about being able to touch her, and it made her happy in turn.
As he expected, the dragoness was going to follow him for a while, especially now that he had offered her free food. Sure, they would likely work for it, but she would be able to pick meat from one of those stores she had seen! Getting the opportunity to taste a new kind of meat, was irresistible to the dragoness, there had not been much variety in her home.
She had been following the boy for a while when the sandstorm kicked up, for a second she considered grabbing him and flying away from it. However, most people would not be comfortable getting picked up, the only reason her kind could do it to other dragon species was that other dragons were comfortable flying. Humans? Would take time before they could be in the sky with one of her kind. Thus, she easily followed him when he made his run for the cave, careful to stay a few steps behind encase he couldn't make it. On the chance, it came down to it? She was capable of surrounding him in her wings to attempt protecting him. A sandstorm really couldn't do much damage to one of her kind. Luckily he made it, just in time.
Since she had not tumbled, the long-legged female had managed to see the light first, roaring softly as she nodded down the tunnel to point it out. She was going to investigate that bright light with or without him, but hopefully, she could investigate and stay with the human.
