Whispers of the Wind

By mist9730

Fantasy / Adventure

Chapter 1

Somewhere in Romania a small, silver, wind dragon with dark gray swirl marks on his wings raised his head as he listened to the wind gossiping about an immensely lucky boy with magic. It whispered about how the boy had defeated the greatest dark lord when he was just a baby. The dragon listened with interest to the wind's tales of how the boy had defeated the dark lord in his first, second, and third year at school.

He looked up as another dragon approached and nodded to him in greeting. "Hello Kaze. What has the wind told you?" The huge, red, fire dragon inquired as he stretched his wings that had golden flame marks on them. Kaze quietly filled the dragon in on what the wind had said and the red dragon snorted in disbelief. "There is no way a mere human could do that," he said with a sniff. 

"How do you know Kasai? It's been a long time since we've been around humans. Especially ones with magic," Kaze said softly.

"Dragons have always been superior to humans. There is just no way a human could do the same thing as a dragon. Magic or otherwise," Kasai said arrogantly causing the small dragon to sigh before he stood up and stretched. 

"Well then why is it that we are hiding from those same weak little beings?" he asked dryly before he turned and headed deep into the dragon cave.

The dragon cave was actually several small caves all connected to one huge cavern called the Gathering Hall. It was a place for all dragon types to converge and gossip or share important news. There were several earth, fire, lightning, and plant dragons gossiping in small groups all around the cavern. There were usually only one or two wind and sky dragons for each dragon cave in every country. Light dragons were extremely rare so any dragon cave was lucky to have even a baby one.

Several dragons called greetings to Kaze as he headed to his storytelling platform in the center of the cavern. Some of them would wander over later to hear the latest news from the outside world since he was the only wind dragon for this particular cave. All dragons know wind dragons get the best stories and juiciest gossip from the wind.

He flew up onto the platform before sitting cat-like with his tail wrapped around his forefeet as he gazed around the cavern."Hey Kaze! Do you have any new stories?" A white dragon with yellow sun wing markings and beautiful light blue eyes asked excitedly as he bounded over to him. 

"Yes I do but you'll have to wait to hear it until everyone gathers around Hikari," Kaze said softly with a smile at the only light dragon.

"Awww...Okay..." Hikari sighed before climbing up onto the platform and sitting next to Kaze.

"Don't worry they should be ready in a minute," Kaze said reassuringly as he carefully stretched his wings. 

"I knooow...It's just been a long time since you've had a new story," Hikari grumbled as he curled his tail around his body. "Can you at least tell me what it's about?" He inquired as he glanced up at Kaze pleadingly.

Kaze shook his head before glancing up as the other dragons, including Kasai, started gathering around the base of the platform to hear the news. "Is everyone here?" he asked to make sure he would not have to tell this twice. When Kasai confirmed that yes everyone was here, Kaze began telling the story exactly in the same way the wind had told him.

Some of the dragons listened in awe but others were sure Kaze was making this up. "Wow...Could a human really be that powerful?" Hikari asked softly as Kaze finished the story. 

"I think so but only because it's been so long since we've been around them. I don't know for sure," Kaze answered as he stood up.

"Well I for one don't believe a word of it. There is just no way a human's power can be superior to a dragons," Kasai snapped and several dragons nodded in agreement while the others just looked thoughtful. 

"I think Kaze might be right. It has been way too long since we've been in human world," A beautiful, light blue dragon with silver cloud wing marks stated as she approached the group causing the dragons to bow their heads in respect.

"Queen Sora!" Kaze exclaimed surprised. He had not expected the queen of the sky, wind, lightning, and light dragons to show up. 

"Hello Kaze. I have also learned of this boy you speak of. His name is Harry Potter and he's supposed to be the Savior of the magical human community. However I have been unable to prove these rumors true," Queen Sora said softly as she walked forward to stand next to Kaze.

"Perhaps Kaze should go see," Kasai suggested with a smirk causing Kaze to look at him startled. 

"That is an excellent idea. In fact I was going to ask you after everyone left but this seems as good a time as any," Queen Sora said smiling as she glanced down at Kaze. 

"Oh can I go too?!" Hikari asked excitedly as he got to his feet.

"Of course you can't. You're just a hatchling," Kasai said condescendingly as he looked down his nose at the small light dragon. Hikari glared at him before glancing up at Queen Sora since he knew she was the one who would make the decision.

 "I think it's about time you did have an adventure. Plus Kaze seems to be the only one who can keep you calmed down," she said with a soft chuckle.

Kaze sighed as he thought all this over before nodding his consent. "Alright I'll do it but you need to find another wind dragon to take my place here before I can leave," he told her causing Kasai to narrow his eyes. 

"I have already found someone suitable. They should be here by morning." Queen Sora said softly.

Kaze nodded once more before leading Hikari to their cave which was separate from the everyone else. The reason being no one wanted to be near the light dragon in the mornings other than Kaze. "You better get some rest. We are going to start our journey after I meet my replacement and find two other dragons to help us find the human," he told the light dragon.

"Okay!" Hikari nodded before curling up in his usual spot. "Which dragons will you ask?" he was naturally curious since most dragons wouldn't ever dream of leaving the cave let alone go hunt for a weak human. 

"I will ask Mitzu since he can teleport from water source to water source and can find his location faster than us," Kaze said decisively as he lay down next to the younger. He liked the water dragon and knew Mitzu would enjoy a chance to get away from his rather large family.

"I wish shadow dragons were real...Their powers would be really useful for this kind of mission," Hikari sighed before glancing up at Kaze. "Do you think they are real?" he asked. 

"Of course! The wind has told me they are and it has never lied to me." the wind dragon said as he curled his tail around the smaller dragon to pull him close.

"I think I might fly up to the ice cave and ask one of the ice dragons to come with us. If they say no I might have to ask one of the younger plant dragons..." Kaze murmured thoughtfully before sighing. "I'll figure it out in the morning," he said shrugging. 

"Will you tell me about the Elemental Whisperer again?" Hikari pleaded. It was one of his favorite myths that Kaze knew by heart.

 "Alright but then we have to go to sleep so we're well rested for the journey tomorrow," Kaze said softly as he shifted around until he was more comfortable and began the tale of the Elemental Whisperer.
