[Egypt] Not Quite The Showstopper

Location: Bucket Bros. Travelling Carnival, Egypt • Date: Mid-November



The carnival was set up just outside the bazaar of the magical district in Cairo. Many people were excited, and the streets were bustling. Festivities were underway, and the majority of people tended to do their shopping in the late afternoon when the air was cooler. Maisah was one of these people, but unlike many, she was not so impressed by the carnival being just outside the bazaar entrance. It made her errands difficult, and stressed her out further as she tried to weave in and out of the crowd, bags of fabrics and weaves in hand. She'd gone a little overboard again.

On her way out, nearing one of the tents of the carnival, her horrors became awakened. Ahead, she saw a friend of her parents - those same parents she had been avoiding for five years. In a ditch effort not to be seen, she scurried into the tent, plowing right into display of a large dragon. Was she even supposed to be in this tent!? She was flung back in recoil, a squeal leaving her, bags being thrown across the floor.

The dragon inside the cage seemed to pace, growling as though about the breath fire, and Maisah gasped, attempting to crawl away on the gravel, dress catching on the uneven floor and causing her to panic and struggle.

James had not long finished his first assignment back at work after his North American holiday. He had heard rumours of new tunnels having been found, hidden underneath the great pyramids of Egypt. Having finished exploring the Pyramids he had been told of the carnival that was touring the country.

He got to Cairo and decided to head straight to the magic district and started to explore the different tents. Watching all the displays for a brief time each James smirked a brief sense of satisfaction washing over the Scot. He eventually reached a tent containing a caged Dragon. Staring at the beast from what James thought was a safe distance in case someone lit the beasts short fuse.

Having allowed himself to stare off into a daze while he thought about the similarities between the Dragon and himself, James was brought back to reality with a thud as he heard the beast growling at something. Seeing a girl on the floor the Scot kept into the small space between her and the Dragon's cage before angrily grunting "Protego Maxima!" before snapping at the girl "Get out of here!" The Dragon had let out a small burst of flames before they bounced back against the invisible shield he had cast.

Maisah gasped, scurrying to her feet, her sandals scraping on the cobbles and causing one of the ankle straps to snap. At the moment, she didn't seem to care too much, as she was far too concerned about the flames that stopped short of her. As instructed, she scuttled to the left to hide behind a pillar, hopefully out of the dragon's peripheral view. Of course, she could have sprinted out, but she wasn't about to just leave this man trying to help her...or all of the materials she had just paid a damn near fortune for!

She peaked out from behind the post, trying to see if the beast had calmed down at all, her heart racing in her chest as she clung to the wooden support with her nails. She wasn't too sure what to do; she did reach for her wand, but how good she would be with it, she didn't know. Defensive magic wasn't particularly her forte by any means, but that didn't mean she wanted to be entirely useless.

"Hey!" She whispered through her teeth. "Don't let it burn my textiles!"
