Jizara pawed the ground impatiently. "When am I going to get food, mama?" she asked. Irelia looked down at the slender green. "Don't worry. Your father will be home shortly with sii-fulls of cattle and sheep. Until then, why don't you play with your siblings?" a grunt came from the shelf. "me? Play with them?" Auron snorted. "he's never any fun!" Wistala groaned. "You must learn to look out for each other," Irelia said, "It just might save your lives." Just then, heavy footsteps were heard entering the cave. "It's your father." Irelia said. "it's about grovfing time!" Auron said. "Auron! Watch your language!" Irelia snapped. AuRel came over to the others, head hung. "Where's the food?" Jizara asked. "It's a famine," AuRel said, "Most of the animals have died, leaving us with no food except for the slugs that come through our cave." "Pogt!" Auron shouted in frustration." "Auron!" AuRel said. "I'm sorry," Irelia apologized, "his language has gotten a bit foul lately."
weeks passed, and the dragons got hungrier and hungrier. "I'm so hungry..." Wistala moaned. "I feel the same way." Auron said, not believing he agreed with her so easily. "I'm so hungry," Jizara said, "I could eat a whole horse by myself." suddenly, Auron caught a slimy scent. He weakly got up and followed the scent to it's source. It stopped at a rock with a small hole at it's base. He tried to push it, but without success. "Jaert!" he said. "I heard that." AuRel said. "Sorry, dad. I'm just trying to move this rock. There's something under it." AuRel dragged over to where Auron and the rock were. He pushed hard, and eventually, the rock gave way. AuRel gasped at what he saw. "Irelia!" he called, "get the girls and bring them here! Our little Auron just found the biggest slug deposit I have ever laid eyes on!" sure enough, Auron had uncovered a slug nest with thousands upon thousands of slugs. "Gems and whims!" Wistala said. "We can live forever off of this!" "Thank you, Auron." Jizara said, and kissed him on the nose. "AGGHH! Jizara, you do remember that you're my sister, right?" "You got kissed by a girl! HA HA!" Wistala teased. "oh, be quiet." Auron said, taking a mouthful of slugs. AuRel and Irelia laughed. "What are you waiting for?" Auron said to his sisters, "dig in!"
