Xibalba snorted his disapproval, shaking his head for her accusations. He was not narcissistic and he was not "off his game" as she'd put it. He settled against the side of his nest, neck draped over the side as he watched her struggle of slow crawling. She seemed uncomfortable, possibly in pain, and he didn't understand why she was putting on such a front about it.

'If you were dragonkin I would know. Don't be ridiculous with your humanlike delusions. Magic is one thing, dragons are different. We are creatures of magic, not party illusions,' he stated, assuming she'd meant some rudimentary form of making herself look or seem a dragon. He'd known some mages to hold such abilities before, but they were different, they were not dragons by birth.

"I have no delusions. I am no party illusion or trickster. I am dragonkin whether you like it or not. I am the daughter of a dragon and will take no further insult to my upbringing, especially not from such a noble creature such as yourself who should know better."

Making it at last to the edge of the nest, Eireann dragged herself to a standing position and clung to the edge that was level with her shoulders. "Now scoot," she demanded to the face so close to her own. "I want in too."

The dragon rolled his eyes, snorting hot air towards her as she ascended his nest but refusing to move as she demanded. Instead he just blinked lazily as he watched her, his eyes glowing dimly. 'If you were dragonkin I would be able to tell quite easily. Noble creatures...like dragons, have a particular scent. Even when they do not appear as themselves. Your father told you quite a lie there about your mother,' he added the last with another snort and a rumbling chuckle of disbelief.

'I will allow you to join me if you find your own space. I do not move at the command of a human woman,' Xibalba sneered.

Eireann huffed at his reply. She was right and he was wrong. If he did not believe her then that was his own fault. While it was true she had absolutely no idea who her real mother was and her father never told the same story twice concerning her, Lyrsa had been mother enough for the woman when she was growing up. Lyrsa had been around since Eireann was a baby and had indeed raised her as if she were one of her own young dragonlings. The human woman would not hear otherwise from anyone about who and what she was. Lyrsa said she was dragonkin, so dragonkin she was.

Grumpy with the massive dragon's refusal to move, she made the decision to climb up anyway. It took a bit more hefting than usual to drag herself up but after a few bounces of of her legs she managed to perch herself on the edge of the nest. Instead of tumbling into it though she chose to very carefully but very determinedly climb onto the dragon's head. She was quick in her scuttling, fearful of him suddenly shaking his head but also resolute in having her bit of mischief. If Xibalba was going to refuse to move then she was going to climb him too. She plopped herself down on the crown of his skull, feeling quite proud of herself though she suspected at any moment she would be rolling back off with his first attempt at dislodging her.

He watched with amusement sparkling in his eyes as he watched her struggle to get to the top of the nest. It was entertaining, like people-watching in the villages as the drunkards stumbled about and argued among themselves. Eireann's boldness surprised him, though, catching him off guard as she climbed up his scales like some disobedient child climbing the roof of their house after their mother told them not to. The small weight against his scales was hardly anything, though, and caused him no pain or discomfort. If he was being honest with himself her lack of fear was intriguing.

'What are you up there for? Am I to be your horse now? Like some unintelligent herd animal that doesn't know any better than to let themselves be told what to do?' he sneered while making absolutely no move to dislodge her. The dragon sat still, mostly trying to see what rise he might get out of the human woman in whatever defense she chose.
