Yaaranim'loki woke slowly from his long slumber,though he could,for the moment decern not the trouble that caused him to wake.he slowly stretched himself out,then gingerly raised his massive body and waited several long moments till his muscular legs felt steady enough to support his wieght. as the drowsiness and slumbler slipped from his mind, he had a sense of something not right with the world and although he could not pin down the exact reason for the feeling, it was almost like what a parent feels when he is about to discover the misdeeds and behavior of offspring.
Like a lumbering mountain, Yaaranim'loki moved forward slowly as his muscles and joints,after a century or so of slumber cried their displeasure of haveing been roused by causeing him much displeasure and pain. With much effort he finally made his way from his cave and up the passageway that would take him to the entrance. It took him several efforts to break his way thru the ice that had covered the entrance thru the years,but with one last mighty plunged he burst thru, sending great shards of ice like meteors thru the air.
He had almost lost memory of what it felt like to have the warmth of the suns rays upon his scales and he spread his wings as the warmth re- vigorated him. He made his way across the snow and ice covered mountains and settled himself looking over the vastness of the ice covered sea,closeing his eyes he concentrated as best he could from
so short a time of his awakening, and cast his minds eye outward in all directions across the landscape.
After nearly a day of waiting for his visions to return, he was both awed and shocked by how the population of Humankind and nearly tripled, no longer did they wear simple fur and carry clubs,but now they appeared to wear upon their hides clothes of fine weave and carried metal fangs in their hands for the purposes of killing. But whats caused the most pain was that he could sense no other of the ancient ones and decided that once he had fed,he would go out into the world and discover why this was, and to what had happened to his kind while he had been in sleep.
