I've always wanted to adopt children. I wasn't sure I wanted my own. When the opportunity came about to take care of Marley and Aria, I was all in. It worked out well because I'm a doctor. I work long hours. It was good that they were already older. Sydney was relieved we shared the same opinion on becoming their guardians. I never once regret it. I know that we can give them the best lives. In this world, you need a lot of money and resources, and I am well equipped in that area. Sydney is a caring and empathetic woman. She'll make a great mother. I wouldn't want to do this with anyone else. Sydney will be my wife one day. I'll make sure of it. I don't allow her to work. I enjoy being the breadwinner. Coming home to her everyday is all I could ever ask for. She says she doesn't want me to resent her and that she doesn't need me to take care of her financially, but I want to. This makes me happy. And I make her happy.

I walked in from work and put my briefcase down. I was undoing my scarf when Marley quickly walked over to me. Marley is more reserved. She's mature and rather introverted. Aria is more outgoing and fiery. I love both of them. "What's wrong?" I asked.

"It's Aria...she's in pain....there's something weird going on with her body...," she explained. Good thing there's a doctor in the house. A special doctor. A doctor that rarely treats humans. I followed Marley into the bathroom upstairs. Sydney was wiping blood from Aria's hands. Ahhh she's a dragon.

Aria turned around to look at me. "Will I be able to change back?...why was it so easy to change into a dragon when I was younger?" she sounded worried. "This is completely normal. Take into consideration you were a very tiny person when you changed into dragon form. Now, you're an adult which means you're a larger dragon. This is the most painful it'll be. I assume this is your first time changing into an adult dragon," I explained. She nodded. "Let's go to the yard. You're going to transform completely. You'll want to fly around," I said. ~ thank god you're home ~ Sydney thought to me. Marley was standing in the doorway watching. I went outside with Aria. Marley's a witch. She's very new to her craft. "Are you in a lot of pain?" I asked Aria. "Not really...it's just uncomfortable," she explained. A few minutes later she was in dragon form. She was large.

She was flying around the yard and above our castle. This was breathtaking. Marley and Sydney joined me and watched her in awe. I wrapped my arm around Sydney. "She's beautiful," she said. "She is," I responded.
