A slender claw with fine nails goes over the message. The tall half dragon with the sparkling eyes reads it with glee. "One million bits!" She quickly lowers her voice as to not draw any unwanted attention--said attention being from competitors. Checking her bardic knowledge, she quickly decides on a course of action.
"A criminal who's weakness is love?" She splays her right claw over her heart. "Why, I am the most passionate dragon AND pony in all of Equestria. And if that is not enough, then my martial prowess shall subdue her."
Her smile threatens to split her muzzle in half as she pictures herself bringing in a tied up changeling queen to the princesses, who will then shower her in more jewels than she could eat in decades. Decades, unless I grow into a fine and slender dragoness, and will finally be big enough to find and marry Attor, my Master. She swoons when imagining herself as a full dragon, shadowing the lands in her shadow, and her beloved Attor noticing her. He would rise up from his lair, and hug her, and kiss her, and he would tell her how proud he is of her, and...
It takes a little while before she finally regains her senses. First she should to and find the nearest royal guard.

Oh, he's a big one. Having come to associate size with power and vitality, Gem tended to dismiss anyone who did not at the least come to her barrel when she was at her full size. She cringed a little when reminded herself that size isn't everything--that she learned her lesson and was fine shrinking down to a "mundane" size --and that she REALLY had to control her greed or she would grow into a dimwitted giant over time. Still, it was nice to see a pony who like her seemed to value size--and there was no way that he grew that big without aid.
She trotted closer to him, and noticed that he too seemed to be after the bounty. If it had been anypony else, she would have made it clear to them that she did not require any help and he should just let her take the bounty. But he was so big. It would be nice to have a kindred spirit who was not some brutish dragon.
"Why hello there, everypony. I seem to be joining this fine fellow here in capturing a certain bounty. Please help us prepare so we can be off."
She brushed against the tall pony, gauging his strength.

When bumped in to he did not move at all, A slight grin the only clue he even noticed. The guard pony walked the tall stallion through the paper work. He proceeded to fill out and sign all that was needed. As he was the guard passed a copy to Precious Gem. After he finished he turned to Precious. Upon seeing her his face turned to a wry smile. "My name Is Shadowrunner,may I ask yours? "

The timber wolves approached and sniff seeming to appreciate the greeting. THe small timber wolf on shadows back tugged his mane shadow then walked close enough to Precious Gem for him to sniff the air and get a good scent. The large wolf with the miss matched eyes looked at Shadow, a series of small facial gestures growls and twitches of the ear. Shadow replied in a similar manner. This went back and forth for a moment before shadow turned to Precious Gem and said "He thanks you for the greeting and wants to ask why you are part pony and part dragon."

"Well, when a mommy and pappy love each..." She coughed in her claw. "Well, how about I tell you mine, if you tell me yours, Shadow." She shuffled her feet, not used to telling people the truth. But this pony seems to be like her so he might understand. "You show me yours, I'll show you mine? I shall tell you, if you tell me how exactly you got the way you are."

Having sat down on her haunches, she listened to the whole story. "That was quite the tale," she remarked. "I am glad that things turned out so well for you. For me, I was born a regular, run of the mill earth pony. I can't say I had a bad life, but it sure was boring. When a dragon slept nearby, his smoke covered my entire town. That...was amazing. We like to think our princesses are mighty, but glaciers don't melt just because Celestia walks by. Now this person on the other hand, he affected the very lands just by sleeping! I just HAD to meet him. Turns out, that was easily done because my town send forth an entire group to ask the dear to move. He didn't really want to, because turns out, his cave, one of several that he owns, had been there even before our village was founded and we were thus technically trespassing. He had been going from cave to cave, getting asked to leave, and to him we were like vermin living everywhere. The longer I spend time with him, the more I just knew that I wanted to spend more time with him, Attor. That is when I offered to be his servant in return for moving to another cave one more time. He picked a really high and cold one this time to try and get some peace and quiet.
"And that was how I met my Master. He was interested at first into having a servant, but soon felt disappointed at me being so weak and little--not to mention I had no fire. But I tried my best, and in between asking him to regal me with more tales of his draconic glory, he taught me how to use the magic that slowly pours out of every earth pony, and make fire with it so that I could better serve him. Like a seed finally getting light, I blossomed open slowly grew into the titanic beauty I am today."
At this, she sat up and spread her wings wide to reveal her full glory, and turned around. With a proud smile she released the spell keeping her at a normal size, and reverted to what is normal to her. With her size, claws, wings and red mane, she resembled a big manticore that showed off her grace and power, before a small sad smile slides over her lips.
"That...is when Attor left me. He told me that he loved me, and that he wished to see me grow into the fine dragon that he knew was hiding into my heart. But to do that, I would need to go out and BE a dragon. He told me that I had to go and search for him, while acting in every way as a true dragon would."
Her eyes grew distant, and she reached for the horizon. "One day I shall find him again, and when I do, I will meet him as an equal."

She blushed. "Oh, well, he did not, not really. I mean, the size difference alone. His thingy was bigger than me, so even though he was really handsome, and charming, and caring, and protective, and brave--oh, and did I mention he is very intelligent--it can only really work out between us if I can mature into his equal instead of just being some mayfly to him."

She walked up to him, and rubbed her tail against him like a cat. "Now don't you be getting any ideas, "shorty". I assure you that I am most definitely not deprived of attention and I can wrap any stallion around my delicate pinky if I so chose." She roved her eyes over his manly and muscular body, but then grinned. "I do believe we are on a mission to pick up a certain bug and then swim in a pool of bits."

Shadow grinned "Any Stallion ey? Well, wrap away if you can. And while it is true we are after the Changeling queen. I all ready have a lot of bits and gems and shiny things. I just want to get her home, Don't know why she left but they really want her back. And she looked cute. " he said and smiled "Not as pretty as you but still" Shadow stared into the woods and smiled as the cool breeze passed by "It's getting late, we should start walking. Should make it by night fall"
