Destra was flying today with his regalia, Zeph. He was a pretty energetic kid very easily impressed his dragon form, and his flying skills, as well as his cool demeanor. They performed several intricate maneuvers, then found their next opponents by the archery fields. Zeph landed first, doing a perfect superhero landing and grinned. Destra landed rather heavily and menacingly behind the child before shifting back into his human form.

"That was way cool! We gotta do it again!" Zeph exclaimed to Destra as he was shifting back into his human form. Destra rubbed the back of his neck.

"Of course we're going to fly again. After I win here," he grinned confidently and approached the redhead. "You're my opponent today, right?"

Standing with her hands on her hips, feet spread slightly, Liliana looked upwards - a posture her two regalia also assumed. Shielding her eyes as she watched the dragon and its rider flying above her for a long moment, Liliana felt Amber nudge her... "They are good, aren't they?"

"Yes, they are," Liliana agreed as she watched them land. Seconds later, she, Amber and Pheobe, started walking towards them.

"That I am," Liliana stated as she eyed the young man, he looked somewhat familiar, but not. Maybe, they were in a few classes together, last year. She wasn't sure. "I am Liliana by the way, and this is Amber, and that is Pheobe," she said introducing the two girls.

"I'm Destra, the kid's Zeph," he gestured to Zeph who was grinning and waving. Destra vaguely recognized her, but she wasn't someone he regularly hung out with. He was scanning his surroundings. Archery was the game...

"So... archery. What's the winner get?"

"The winner gets, well, they get Phoebe over there," Liliana said as she looked at her other regalia, who just shrugged, seeming unaffected by the fact that her partner wanted to use her as some sort of prize for winning a challenge. In fact, Pheobe suddenly smiled, quite mischievously and winked at Zeph as if saying, you and I are going to have a lot of fun, you'll see.

"By the way ...She's a bit of a handful," Liliana added, "And I do hope you are good with crazy if you win this." she warned Destra, wanting to be upfront about everything.

Destra raised an eyebrow. Zeph grinned and waved at her. So she was just too much for her to handle. Destra nodded slowly.

"Well, the place I grew up in was like that movie Mad Max but with the worst kinds of fantasy elements. People would consider me a large dragon here... I'm very small compared to some of the older ones. I can handle crazy."

He gave Phoebe an acknowledging nod. It didn't sound like she was expecting him to offer up Zeph for trade, and he had no plans on doing so either. Not only because he did admittedly like the kid, or even his powers. Zeph's parents seemed kind of fond of him as well. He wasn't going to put that on the line.

"Well, alright we can do that then. I know I won't lose, but if I do I might be able to help you... manage," he grinned confidently, and red lightning crackled through his hair.

"Don't lose cuz you're getting cocky Des!"

"Oh don't worry, I know exactly what I'm doing here. I'm just charged up and ready to go," his voice was practically a growl, but anyone could see the excitement on his face.

"Oh really?" Liliana said, her eyes full of merriment and challenge too. His (over)confidence made her shake her head, "First you have to beat me, then maybe, just maybe... I will let you help me," Liliana said as she walked over and deliberately grabbed one of the fiberglass composite bows, grabbed an arrow, pulled back, aimed and let go of the arrow, watching confidently as it hit the bull's eye straight on.

"I forgot to tell you, I was the best archer in my class," she grinned wickedly at Destra. "Your turn dragon boy." Liliana said as she stepped back to let Destra shoot.

Destra took a bow of his own, and grabbed an arrow then headed to his place. He'd hunted with bows before back home. Hitting a stationary target would be nothing for him. He pulled back on the bow, and fired, hitting his target in the bulls eye.

"Dead center, guess you're up again, A-plus."

"Very nice," Liliana stated approvingly, eyeing Destra with growing respect now. It just hadn't been a bunch of bravado thrown her way. He was actually good, very good at this.

Taking another arrow from a quiver nestled beside her by on the ground, Liliana raise her bow and shot towards the target, this time just a smidgen to the left of the middle. It was a very good shot, but she had a feeling Destra would probably do better.

Destra realized that the fact that he just naturally had better senses than she did. Or at least he assumed based on her last shot. He took his shot, firing again and hitting the bullseye, right next to the first arrow. Zeph gasped and clapped excitedly.

"Let's just see if I can keep it up."

Liliana eyed Destra, again surprised by his skills before raising her own bow, pulling back the string, holding the tension for a moment and then taking her shot, seeing the arrow land right in the middle of the target, almost on top of the first arrow.

"Your go," she said to Destra as she lowered her bow.
