Zaira left Oron in the nest so that she could go see what her assignment was to be today. The dragons had gathered as Linneus gave everyone their jobs. As she’d expected she was to go with her new apprentice Spigot to gather more herbs. It was fairly easy to figure out which dragon Spigot was as all the other dragons moved off to set about their tasks. “You must be Spigot then.” Zaira smiled down at the young red dragon, “I’m Zaira, and I’ll be your mentor it seems. Are you ready to begin?” His only response was a shy little not.

With that Zaira motioned for Spigot to follow as she strolled out of camp, feeling more like a leisurely stroll than flying. The two walked together in silence in the morning sun, as Zaira led him up to the first plant. The plant was small and thin with long needles growing out of it. “This is ‘Hare’s Nettle’.” Zaira explained, “See how the flower kind of looks like a hare’s head? You don’t really want to touch the plant itself if you can help it. The needles are sharp, but we need the roots for controlling fever.” Without further explanation she forced a large forepaw into the sand at the base of the plant exposing its roots. Carefully she knocked the plant over by pulling up its roots, after which she carefully cut the plant away.

The two carried on in this fashion, Zaira leading and explaining and Spigot following along in silence, nodding his head to show that he understood. The day wore on, and they’d gathered many different kinds of herbs and roots to use. Again she stopped at a plant. This one was large and had very sharp, thick growths that one could only assume were leaves. “And finally we have ‘Dragon’s Fang’ which is used to help cuts heal. Interestingly enough it’s also good for soothing burns, and alleviating pain.” She smiled at her silent apprentice, “You have to be really careful with this one. Its growths are razor sharp and will cut you if you aren’t paying attention.” Reaching over she grabbed a nearby stick and pried one of the leaves down, causing it to break off. She then gently took it with her stubby digits and pointed the broken end toward Spigot, “See the liquid coming out? That’s the stuff we need from this plant. It dries out quickly, which is why I don’t grab a bunch at once. Odds are you’ll be sent to retrieve it. Anyway that concludes our little excursion. Let’s get these back to my den.”

Zaira KoA Assignment 1
Spigot does not belong to me. He belongs to Buizelfreak I hope it's okay I used him like this. I didn't want to god mode with him too much, but I needed him for the assignment, so I figured he'd probably be silent since he's shy and hadn't met his mentor yet (we should definitely RP together sometime). Anyway the first plant was totally made up, but I don't know if you guys could tell from my description, but I was trying to describe an aloe plant XD
