"Hey mister Edward. Can I ask you a question?"
Edward said before taking a drink of water from his canteen.
Alpha and Beta walked into the tent with their creator, readying to power down.
"Would it be okay if I called you my dad?"
Edward nearly choked. A mouthful of water flew out and spilled on to the floor. He went into a short coughing fit before he looked to Melissa.
"What... What on earth gave you that idea?"
He said, laughing nervously.
"Well you take care of me like a dad. You worry about me and care about me like a dad does. And I don't think anyone but a dad would stand in front of a dragon like that."
"Well uh... I mean, thank you... I..."
Edward looked to Oliver. A pleading expression of "what the hell do I do" was clear in his eyes.
