Jolene was chased out of Geoff's house with a broom.
This did not bother her, as she would be back and nothing could stop her from being with her man, but as long as she was in the outside world, well...
She quickly nabbed some sort of hamster-grasshopper hybrid and choked it down impatiently before burping in a charming lady-like fashion (not) and taking to the skies, her eyes a whirling mess of purples, almost pulsating from light to dark. Her hide was practically glowing like an autumn fire. Firelizards of the opposite (or same, she wasn't picky about getting attention) gender would likely sense her proddy flight, but just in case she trumpeted at the sky as she skimmed over the treetops. It was more of a pocket trumpet than a cornet, but that still counted as trumpeting right?
The Girl: Jolene The Secondary Characters: Narcis, Sir Loin, Mjolnir, Gabby The One Who Gets The Girl: !
Oh, no, there was something going on. It sounded important. Though, obviously, not as important as him.
Nothing was more important than Narcis.
Cooing at his reflection in a puddle, the eye-searing neon pink Meltdown hesitated a moment. He knew there was a female flying. He should really go see to her.
Just look at that pretty firelizard in the water!
Thankfully, something small and squeaky hopped passed him, and the urge to tear it to shreds and maybe even eat some of it was too strong. And, well, if he had to do that, might as well take to the skies.
But don't despair, beautiful-firelizard-in-the-puddle. The mighty Narcis had enough love for both!
Taking to the skies, the Meltdown was quick to find the flying female, and he let out a mighty challenging screech. He was ready to take up any challenge.
Look, no one is sure if Narcis is actually chasing the Inferno or challenging her for daring to think she's more pretty than him.
Also, no one said she thought she was prettier than him.
Either way, at least the Meltdown was giving chase.

Near a humanoid's hut this Cyclone lounged, eyeing the garden that attracted many small critters. It was like a trap he never had to set. It was just a bonus that the forest was typically calm, quiet, and offered shelter. Typically, this boy could be found in the markets of the Weyrd or near any gatherings or parties he could spot. This was because, of course, there was always food around these areas. And not just any food—good food. He had a taste for the finer things when given the opportunity, but his palate was wide and vast…kind of like his belly.
After snatching up a couple flooferteethers for dinner, something else caught his attention. He could feel it nearby, coming closer. Out of his lounging-belly-up position he rotated, onto his four legs. As Jolene darted past overhead, a hunger deeper than any he had ever felt before overcame him. He rushed into the garden, all other life forms with legs scattering in all directions. He managed to grab a couple more, practically choking them down whole, before taking to the skies. He refused to let his belly weigh down his passion. Four. He had eaten four small creatures now.
His belly might be wide and vast, but so was his heart. Look out, world: Sir Loin was lookin' for love.
It took him a while to get there. He preferred the wilds of Planet, deep in the forest and over plains rolling with endless thunder. Who knows how he felt the female's flight over the leagues between them. After the Meltdown and Cyclone showed up, a blast of chilly air from between signaled his arrival. The Thunderburst gave out a throaty warble, eyeing Sir Loin and Narcis equally. He was large, in charge, and loud. His fast whirling gaze landed on Jolene, and his warble shifted smoothly into a croon. Now there was a lass! Mjolnir swooped into the chase, doing a barrel roll in his excitement. It's on!

Gabby was perhaps a little bit too enthusiastic about this whole thing, confusing holding her own chase for the loud call of Jolene's. She zipped through, large (for her size), wings flaring out on either side of her as her bark-colored hide, not quite as eye-catching as others. Not quite as male as the others. She let out a cheery chirp, tiny teeth bare in the darn closest thing to a grin that she could muster. She was fully expecting this to be a nice, fun experience, and she twirled in a small circle, showing off some of her acrobatic skills. She was a little bit more than the sunny, earthy joy that she presented. She'd even managed to grab a quick bite to eat on her way.
(Took one of Lucas' Flitters though Quake is now NPC Tremor Gabby)
WOAH the first boy to give chase was bigger than she expected -- not that she minded! He was quickly followed by another big boy, this was more noisy, and she was eager to hear him tell her all sorts of sweet little nothings, wink wink. ANd bless her heart, Gabby was welcome to fly too, come on honey shake what you've got! Jolene did not do jealousy. She was too confident and pretty to need to worry about how fabulous she was.
Delighted with multiple followers, the young Inferno loop-de-looped upwards, squeaking for them to come, chase, impress! Speed was, perhaps fortunately for her followers (especially hungry man over there) not one of her priorities in a potential mate (or friend). She wanted to be dazzled.

This sort of chase was right up Sir Loin's alley! In all honesty, if today was based on speed, they might very well lose this Cyclone along the way. Luckily, he was keeping up just fine at the current pace. The presence of the other competitors did not bother him. Just like a good meal, a good chase was more enjoyable when shared with others. Sure, he could be a little greedy with food sometimes, but he preferred quality over quantity if he could find it.
Today, lunch had come in quantity, but this lady came in quality.
He more or less followed in a straight line, unable to replicate her loop-de-loop or anything of the sort. A much deeper squeak (more like a honk...) was thrown back at her, expressing his enthusiasm. Instead of any acrobatics or aerial skills, the Cyclone used his front arms to absolutely WHACK his belly, regurgitating up a meaty chunk of tiny mammal. It was basically fresh; he had just eaten it. He honked again, holding out the meat as he followed her as fast as he could muster, trying to catch up a little. Look! He brought a gift!
Mjolnir was happy to see others come to Jolene's call. A chase wasn't worthy without some healthy competition- and these other two certainly looked like good competition! The Tremor lady that joined was the most agile, clearly, and the Cyclone that had arrived before him was a little more- robust. Not as acrobatic. The Thunderburst was neatly in the middle, which was fine by him. He was definitely louder, though! The Inferno loop-de-looped upwards, signaling the start, and the Thunderburst felt a rush of energy course through his body.
With a mighty warble, that sounded equal parts adoring and challenging, the flit propelled himself upwards. He threw his body into a corkscrew pattern, like jagged bolts of lightning instead of smooth circles like Gabby or Jolene's fancy loops. The Cyclone's approach was... interesting, Mjolnir had to admit. He certainly couldn't do anything like that, but his ferocious little trills were just as enthusiastic as anything!

Gabby watched as the Inferno shot upwards barely even registering that the two males beside her had the advantage in size. While she was certainly not the strongest, luckily for Jolene, dazzling was probably what the Tremor did best. With her wings furled out, she soared after the group, forgetting herself for just a moment, caught off guard. She was intrigued by Mjolnir's tight movements, a pattern that she had not quite perfected, and was even more intrigued by Sir Loin, because she had never even tried that. While agility would have its place, she was sure, Gabby decided to let out a sweeping display instead, because the girl could glide!
She squeaked, her small body dipping up and down in waves with just smaller movements in her wings. She knew how best to capture the upward thrust of the winds, and use the oversized wings on her petite body to her advantage. And she was just getting started.
