RONIN
Longheat was long, and hot. And Ronin was annoyed at himself for being surprised about it, truly. It was why he found himself meandering around the Settlement just after dawn while it was still cool, to let Sugar stretch her wings. The dragonling was an adept flyer by now, soaring over the rooftops of the other businesses and houses in the area, letting out a shriek of glee whenever she managed to swoop into a deep dive, or spotted something interesting.

It was Sugar, indeed, that became interested in the Devas bakery even before Ronin did, the reptile trilling to him and circling around until she could land on the window sill of the bakery and peer in at the delicious somethings she could smell inside.

"You can't just go gawking in people's windows," Ronin laughed warmly, moving to collect her from the sill - and doing the exact same thing on autopilot. Like dragon like master.

Dawn, and already the baker is stirring, having risen like clockwork before the sun. It is a relief to be home, returned to routine, as grand as her adventure may have been. Padding down familiar stairs into the kitchen is like living a memory, as easy and pleasant as any dream. She does not have to think, to worry: the steps have been laid out for year, a play written by authors far wiser than she. Fetch the kindling. Stoke the fires. Gather the dough she'd left outside, loaves set to rise with wild yeast, fermenting and bubbling overnight.

There is only one difference in her routine, small but significant and not to be ignored. For Amalia has an assistant now, a shadow who swims along in her wake and investigates the goings on with endless curiosity. With every step the girl takes, every action she employs Jyoti is there, peeking and peering and tasting along, her own song a playful harmony to the baker's hum. The starwhale is fascinated by her new environment, endlessly interested in everything she can see. It delights Amalia, but makes it somewhat a challenge to work; and so it is with no little relief that she watches the child dart out of the kitchen, entranced and enamored by some new sound.

Sugar and Ronin are not the only ones gawking through windows, trying to see through curtains and glass. From within the shop another appears, blue as midnight and littered with stars. Jyoti has heard the dragon's arrival and swam out to investigate, ever curious, ever nosy, leaving Amalia to tend the oven. The whale trills a merry greeting, poking her beak from between the curtains before darting back inside, starlight like laughter marking her wake, an invitation for further games.

RONIN
Sugar clearly had no intention of going quietly, the dragonling letting out little growls of protest as Ronin scooped her into his arms like a baby. Her reasoning became evident when the guildmaster spotted Jyoti peeking through the curtains, Ronin’s eyes widening at the display of starlight and song. ”Well isn’t that something,” he murmured softly, utterly entranced by the creature that reminded him so of Safrin.

Stepping back, Sugar still cradled against his chest, he gazed up at the bakery (it smelled utterly amazing). ”I wonder if they are open yet,” he said to his companion. ”Only one way to find out I guess.” So saying, he pushed open the doors and peeked inside, hoping to see another glimpse of the star whale too. ”Hello?”

Jyoti trills as the pair retreats, mourning their absence, eager for entertainment, wanting some distraction from Amalia's laser focus. The longing cry rises into triumph when Ronin appears once more, his face framed neatly in the open doorway, a staunch dark figure in the morning light. With the cetacean equivalent of a grin the starwhale greets their guests, the infant creature swimming up to eagerly greet the pair. In truth, the man is not her primary interest: she has never seen a dragon before, and is desperately eager to explore and play. With stardust billowing from her blowhole the whale circles the new-met duo before darting into the back of the shop, singing softly for baker's attention.

Amalia had been aware of the commotion, had heard the door open and Ronin's voice- but nothing prepares you for seeing the dead. Despite having heard rumors of the man's resurrection the young baker stops short in her tracks, staring through wide and wondering eyes at the guildmaster who was given a second life. "Ah..." Words falter on her leaden tongue; unabashed she inspects him, dark gaze trailing, as though trying to see through his roguish attire, to find the secrets of his rebirth. It is only Jyoti which starts her from her stupor, the whale's soft but insistent nose pressing against her neck. Clearing her throat, Amalia flushes: what do you say to the returned from the dead?

Same thing you say to any customer, she supposes. "Hi... Ronin. What can I get for you today?"

RONIN
Whilst Sugar was quite content to loll in Ronin's arms, silvery slip of a tail flickering back and forth, she was utterly bewitched by the sight of Jyoti, who swam through the air with such effortless grace that she could barely contain her envy. Trilling at Ronin as if it might be his fault that she couldn't do the same thing, she was wriggling in his arms as he moved to follow the starwhale, smiling as their little trek through the bakery led them to Amalia.

His smile was bright at first, though it faltered when he realised he was being scrutinised, however unintentionally. Feeling heat on his cheeks, Ronin glanced away and worried his bottom lip gently between his teeth. "Hi Amalia," he greeted her in return. "Uh... I mean... honestly, we were just amazed by how good everything in here smells. And then Sugar caught sight of your... um, your friend." He flashed a cheeky grin to Jyoti.
