As the sun rose over the horizon, pale golden streaks lighting up the mountain peaks and the high abies tree tops, high waves broke against the scattered rocks below the steep edges of the rocky island. Fog lingered and promised to do so for hours yet and no wind helped blowing it away, the air was chilly and crisp, all in all it promised to be an unusually nice day in Berk. As the rays fell in through the windows of a small house situated at the edge of the village Hilde stirred, casting a tired glance outside she sighed and threw the covers over her head burrowing deeper down into her mattress, not wanting to leave her warm bed. After years of practice the young woman did not fall asleep again, she had duties to do in the morning but she liked to drag out the time a bit especially on cold, foggy mornings. Sighing Hilde threw her cover off, shivering at the cold inside, the raw air having sneaked inside during the night as her fire had died down to a smoulder. Quickly throwing some logs in the hearth and making sure it caught Hilde washed up quickly before pulling on her clothes. A simple dark green tunic with a warm fur padded vest, her dark wool skirt and finally her warm boots with thick fur wrapped tight with leather strings. Feeling a lot better at once Hilde turned to her bed, the cover vibrating slightly and a soft purr escaped from underneath it. “Hey sleepyhead,” she called out to Tremor, her Terrible Terror. Nothing happened except that the lump changed position slightly. Hilde drew her fingers threw her long thick hair and gave the lump an envious glance, at times, especially mornings she wished she could laze around as much as her little terror. Shrugging she let him be and put water in a kettle placed above the fire to get some warm tea before venturing outside. Preparing a quick breakfast consisting of a piece of bread Hilde took her tea and and bread to eat by the table and as always when food was promised Tremor crawled out from the covers, yawned so large you could see all his teeth. Easily bouncing down to the floor he came over to Hilde, stroking against her legs before looking at her with large amber eyes, clearly wanting his share of the breakfast as well. Chuckling Hilde stretched for the fish she had taken out and held it out for him to take, in one single gulp it was gone and Tremor purred in satisfaction and went to his water bowl to drink. Hilde finished her tea and quickly braided her hair, as always not bothering to braid from the neck, instead starting below her shoulders. Going outside with Tremor jumping around her feet Hilde started the day by letting her herd of sheep and the four cow she currently had out from their barn. Letting them go as they pleased, she had a low fence put up to keep them from going too far away, she wanted to be able to keep an eye on them. Hilde spent some time cleaning the barn while Tremor played in the clean hay and hunted some rats but eventually he lost interest and curled up in a small ball, promptly falling asleep again. Finally done the sun had already risen high clearing away the fog, leaving a clear but crisp day behind. Moving outside into the herd Hilde began to make her round, checking every animal to see that they were healthy and content. Taking her time Hilde eventually finished with her sheep and had her cows left when Tremor came outside seemingly done with his nap, her animals had longs since gotten used to him. The cows had never bothered with him at all, they were big enough for Tremor to hurt and could easily just stomp on him but he sheep had been nervous at the beginning until they too learned that the little dragon was too small to actually hurt them. Tremor as well had learned not to bother them, having almost been kicked several times and head butted by a sheep once. Now he had learned his lesson and guarded them instead, his territorial attitude warning against any stranger. Today though he seemed to have gotten a temporary memory loss, heading towards Hilde his attention snapped to one of the brown cows, her tail swishing slightly as she grazed. Tremor stood still, his eyes following the bush tail end intently, and before Hilde could do anything or call out to Tremor he jumped. The cow bellowed, more in annoyance than in pain, as Tremor got a firm grip on the cow tail with his large jaws. Kicking backwards with her hind leg she caught Tremor square in the shoulder causing him to let go instantly. Forcing back her panic and fear Hilde rushed over to Tremor, her heart beat wildly but she didn't show it on the outside not wanting to cause her stress to spread to the animals or Tremor. The small dragon had a hoof shaped wound on his shoulder but Hilde had no idea how serious it was, she was not very skilled with dragon injuries and wasn't sure if it was even serious enough to fret over. Checking on the cow, who once again grazed calmly, she noted that Tremor hadn't managed to hurt her, only a few scratches on the tail showed where he'd bitten her. Sighing she shifted the dragon in her arms and looked down on him, he was purring again seemingly not overly bothered by his wound. “You little demon,” she reprimanded him with a stern voice. “You should know better by now.” Tremor opened an amber eye, looking uninterested and bored. Sighing again Hilde headed for the dragon centre to see what they could do for her dragon.
