Things moved quickly once Venn returned. She spent a few days with him in her small one bedroom cottage, and they had declared their love for one another. Amnestria couldn’t be any more happy than she already was. Within a week her belly started to grow, but she thought nothing of it until her friend Zipporah mentioned something about a baby coming soon. She was of course in disbelief. It did not take her long to figure out that what Zipporah said was truth. Her belly continued to grow bigger everyday, and her immediate concern was that of Aishe's.
Aishe seemed to take the news better than Amnestria expected. She wasn’t dead, so she took that as a major plus. Now the time was nearing closer and closer with each passing day, and Amnestria was getting to the point where it bothered her to walk long distances. She took a leave of absence from her duties and the castle, having found a cave far from the city. Venn helped greatly with making it as homely as possible, as well as getting a few clansmen to help build the nest.
Amnestria sighed with relief upon entering the cave. It was spotless, warming, and filled with some of her books from the cottage. There was not many shiny treasures about, and that made her even happier. She walked around the nest, gently running her fingers over it. The nest took up the majority of the cave, but she still hoped that it was big enough. Scales were already forming over her body, as the tine to transform into her dragon state was quickly approaching. Amnestria smiled warmly to Venn.
“I am ready to have our little one.” She said as she waddled over to him and wrapped her arms around him as best as she could. “What do you think it will be? A boy or a girl?”
“Um…Venn…” she had said softly. She looked to him, unsure of what to do. Amnestria had not thought that the time had been this close. She had not felt much different.
