Silently, she creeps around one of the trees, her long graceful body whipping around the thick, pale trunks.  The eerie fog distorts the light, creating a strange glow that warps depth and plays tricks on the eyes. What might be there isn't. Something seen as a figure is only a twisted tree. But some things are not illusions...

Snaking around more trunks, her body is tense as she nears a tree, HER tree.  Cautiously, she sniffs around the base of the trunk and her breathing eases as she finds the egg.  So close.  It could have been gone by now.  She drops the bundle of twigs she was holding in her mouth and lets them fall into the cavity of the tree.  The egg is nestled in more of the dark twigs, cushioned by pale feathers and positioned deep in the trunk. The barely grey surface shines in the dim light, and looks out of place in the nest of dark sticks.  

She nudges the twigs into place, making sure the egg is covered completely, except for just the top. She must be able to find it later.  But for her, food is more important. Infinitely more important. She has not eaten for weeks.  The egg is her first, and she is determined not to lose it.  But hunger is an overpowering force, and if she does not eat, neither her nor the egg will survive.  

Blinking her dark and eyes and lashing her tail, she places a pale, scaly foot on her egg, as is to reassure herself it would stay safe.  She perks up her ears, listening intently for any sound of threats. A silver wolf could easily take the egg.  Eat it. Destroy it. She must not let that happen. She lets out an incredible roar so as to frighten anything off. But would it work...?

She covers the egg with twigs even more and nudges the egg deeper into the trunk with her snout. Every precaution must be taken.  With a final glance at her precious egg, she takes off into the fog to search for food. But she did not notice the silver wolf, peering from around a faraway tree, watching...

Oh no... :no: The poor dragoness! I hope she comes back in time to save her egg.
I like her design, but the left wings seems slighty off. Apart from that, the picture and the text are both very good :D

Thanks! :) I was trying to go for the intimidation she's trying to pull off to scare anything away away, but I see where you're coming from.
