"Identity Crisis" by debbie1188
Smaug struggled to keep up with Lichen. How did she know these corridors so well? Ixi had told him in the past that Lichen had spent practically her whole childhood travelling Neopia, never stopping in one place long enough to settle in properly. And though the Space Station had always been one of her favourite destinations, she had certainly never taken any of her pets past the designated tourist decks before. Smaug halted. His belly scales were sore and his head was becoming a little cloudy from the continued exertion. "Lichen –" he said, breathless. Lichen turned back towards him, looking concerned. "Are you okay? Do you need me to carry you?" "Just. Need. A minute," he gasped. She crouched down next to her Hissi, giving his head a sympathetic pat. "Look, I'll just carry you." Was it his imagination or did she sound scared? No, he must be imagining it. Her smile was wide, albeit tight. "It's no bother. And I can put you down again when you're feeling better, okay?" "Okay," he said, smiling at his owner as she picked him up. He didn't like to be an inconvenience, but this was probably the most sensible option – especially since Lichen seemed in such a hurry. He wondered though, what wasn't she telling him? The last time she surprised him was with a camouflage paint brush, in lieu of a spotted one, she said. It had taken him a while to get used the brown of his wings, the dappled markings on his scales, but his older siblings had been wowed.
