Chapter 2 of the book Human and Dragon: World of Thundluv
Diamond discovers her unique orb is actually an egg
"Gortha Part 2" by AJ McCall
Diamond brough home a new rock or orb to add to her collection....

Sunlight peeked through the blinds the next morning, it's fiery-orange glow illuminating the room to where it was almost blinding when Diamond opened her eyes. Something had awakened her, but what?

Pulling herself into a sitting position, Diamond untangled the floral bedsheets that had twisted around her ankles. She scrambled out of bed, flinching as her bare feet came in contact with the cold floor. Slipping a tee-shirt over her head, she wriggled into a pair of faded jeans.

As she reached for her socks, her gaze wandered around the sunlit room and came to rest on Gortha, the blue-black orb she had found the night before.

The irresistible pulling sensation in her gut she'd so keenly felt the night before suddenly took over, jerking her to the wooden shelf where which Gortha sat.

Like one in a trance, Diamond lifted the orb and held it against her chest.

She could feel a strange warmth pierce her skin, the hairs on her arms tingling with electricity. Then thin white cracks branched across the surface like a spider's web, the hard orb suddenly felt like soft paper, ready to tear at any second.

"What the heck?" she murmured, tracing an invisible line over the orb's surface with a calloused brown finger.

A surprising crack split the air; she froze. The orb jumped in her hand, Diamond yelped, dropping it. A football-sized creature with silver and black scales observed her with its dark eyes. One of them encircled by a black ring.

The book continues with Gortha. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
