It was still so strange, this new body, of a man dead in battle, but still being he was still him with his own thoughts. He still had the voices of the Gods in his head and they had told him to repent. This he would do, he would fight his former Dragon Brothers and push them back to the islands from where they had come. Little by little, country after country. He was after all a general and he could plan a campaign.
He needed a name, but could think of nothing. He wished that the Gods had taken the memories of his past life from him. How could he ever blend into a society he had loathed, to see lesser beings every day. He stopped as the voices grew higher and saw that he was close to the edge of the woods. But the sight before him took his breath away. A temple to the gods carved from two trees and there in the middle, a woman. The woman for whom he had given up everything, a woman he didn’t even know, a woman that would loathe him just as he had loathed her kind. But as he came closer she smiled, but he knew that it was not at him she smiled.
“Welcome,” Liselle said and smiled. “ I have been waiting for you.”
He stood still. Waited? “Why?”
“You saved me and you gave up everything for me.”
He fell to his knees, waiting for the words to come but instead she told him that the Gods had spoken to her. They had told her that a champion would come, a champion put in a body fallen in battle. He would have knowledge of the Dragon ways and he would fight for them. She had told the people this and they had rejoiced and sworn to fight again. But she had not told them what the Gods also had told them. That the man would be a former Dragon who had not forgotten a woman he once saved. At first she had been scared, but then she too had sworn that she would help this new champion.
“Do you hate me?” He asked and she sat down before him.
“It takes great courage to see the error on ones way, and if the Gods think you deserve a chance then I do too.”
The Former Dragon Lord took her hand and kissed it. The journey before him was long, but he would fight, for the people, the land, and for the woman he wanted as his own.
