Alexandra had had a productive morning so far, the initial preparation for the planting having gone extremely well. It was the start of spring in the Hidden Village, when they needed to plant crops to help support them during the cold winter months. They'd gathered all of the seed well enough, and had transported it to the fields, but they'd need a lot more than just the three of them to do the actual planting.
With her were Aescila and Kimizyrex. Aescila was a demoness who'd fled from Artmirst two years ago, when her kind had invaded. She'd never truly believed in the cause of her peers, and so had deserted at the earliest opportunity, leading a group of about twenty of her kindred here as soon as she'd learned of its location. Kimizyrex was a dragonkin like her, though her body and mannerisms were more along the lines of a succubus than those of a dragoness, with a pair of small dragonic wings on her back the only signs of her supernatural parentage. The three of them had risen early to cart the beginnings of their crops to the fields, and now had the rest of the day off as soon as the rest of the village roused itself and joined them.
That more or less gave them a front row seat to the Arrival. The three women stood in the fields, looking out toward the lake, when something massive simply... Appeared, hanging above the village. It was titanic, dwarfing even Alexandras full blooded dragon kin, as it blotted out the sun just above their village. Its surface was gray and flesh-like, with thousands of tendrils swishing about over its surface. It floated above their village, and had it chosen to lower itself, the massive gray abomination could easily have crushed the entire village, and all of its oddball inhabitants. From the great distance they were form it, Alexandra and her two companions could see small shapes dropping from it. It was almost a mile back to the village, this being the most fertile ground near their home, and as they watched the alien titan hover over their home for a moment in a mix of confusion, fear and horror, Kimizyrex said; "What in the voids name is that thing!? We need to get back there!" And, with that, she started back toward the village at a quick walk. Aescila looked over at Alexandra helplessly, apparently not knowing what to make of the whole situation.
