At Peace And Don't Underestimate Him

Drake nodded at Mary's words, agreeing with her as he could sense the wisdom and experience behind them. All the while he was just happy to see Splendid smile. That was by far the best gift this day had delivered to him. In time they finished and Al was kind enough to sequester them to various rooms for rest.

Though small, the beds were far more comfortable than the ones in the lab and Drake was more than happy to beckon his mate to the bed as his full belly tempted him to an early rest.

"Tell me you're feeling better." He said softly as he pulled Splendid to him and nuzzled her neck with a low purring growl.

"You best remember what side you're on, Yazul..." Tad warned. "Or your brother may have words for you..."
