Time and Energy

Jin looked at the stairs that led up to the pinnacle of the temple and decided he didn’t want to climb them. It would take too long and too much endurance, when both time and energy weren’t things he wanted to spare.

“How fast could you get to the top?” he asked the dragon.

What Jin had been thinking was nothing like the dragon offered, as he watched the larger form lower to the ground beside him. It wasn’t the first time any of them had ridden the dragon, but without Kun… Jin didn’t recall there being an offer without Kun around. The dragon had a preference and all of them knew it.

Jin grunted. “Just between you and me.” That said, he climbed up on the dragon and made it up the mountainside in record time.
