Desire. Everyone experiences it. Most deny it. Its presence causes us to ask ourselves many questions: Do we control our desires? Or do our desires control us? Do we always have time for this emotion? Or is it too strong to be concerned with time or place?
In an age where creatures wait to burn down your home and devour your very being, is there room for desire? And what about love? Is it separate and apart from desire, or are they one in the same?
Often, we submerge desires, at least for a time. But what happens when the emotion is mixed with love? Can it be submerged or does it burn like a bright flame within the recesses of the heart, aching to come to the surface?
The answers aren’t always easy for Ayanna to come by, but she surely faces these questions because in the age of dragons, desire might be all she has left to hold to.
