“Lizard..” He had come to like that name, even though it was the name of an actual species rather than his own true name. “Sciencee…. maggicc… call it whaat.. you willl…“
He moved his head back as she attempted to touch him but his tail goes around and taps her hand. She sounded as if she was some form of royalty from back when castles were hosts to vampires. He crawled even closer to her, coming to the wall beside her as she watched his every move, and he watched hers.
Her eyes all but glowed as he flicked his tail forward and tapped her hand. Athena leaned her head sideways to see where his tail went after it retreated then returned blue-green eyes to meet those of the scaly creature. What she really wanted to know was if he had been a human and whether he could return to his human state. She eyed him as he spoke about this science and also processed his name.
“Tis an odd name I must say, is there not an animal called such?” She straightened her posture, although it was already in perfect form, as she prepared to introduce herself. “I am Pallas Athena daughter of Zues God of thunder, Goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.” Finishing her sentence she nodded then curtsied a bit, although it wasn’t mandatory to do in this age, before smiling sweetly. “Were you not at one point human, Lizard?”
“Yesss…. " He listened to her and noted her name. "Atheeena…" He almost smirks when she curtsies. He crawls down and stands to his full height, getting up close to her face and staring into her eyes. He tilts his head slightly as she goes on about what she stands for and who’s daughter she is. Then she asks her question to which he answers, "…..Yessss”
