As a Milletian, my privelige to experience Erinn beside an array of animal companions is not taken for granted. My pets are always willing to travel to the deepest depths of any dungeon with me.
But first, it takes gaining that pet's trust - to reassure them they will be safe in this journey.
Vay, a timid young Ceraunus, has been having a difficult time with the bonding process.
However, I seemed to have had a breakthrough today when I visited him.
The creature's unsure posture and pinned-back ears were obvious as I approached. However, a glint in his eyes hinted at the fascination for the soft chicken chew I was holding. We had done this for a while now.
"Come here, it's alright," I said in a hushed tone, hoping my endearment was perhaps palpable to him. Minutes seemed to pass before the Ceraunus finally inched forward and was within arm's reach. His frame was considerably taller than mine despite being just a cub.
The chew was taken from my hand, and I assumed our daily interaction would end there; but this time, he did not immediately retreat into the forest. His eyes tentatively met mine and he seemed to stare into my very being. I soon found myself talking to him.
"Vay, I know you're scared, but I'm here to protect you and give you a home. You'll have so many siblings to play with, and all the chews you want! ...And, it would make me really happy if you joined me. Can you think about it? Please?"
After some hesitation, Vay licked my hand for the first time. And it was not simply because I was just holding his favorite treat. That was the beginning of our bond.
