Mother Issues by Anne Nicholas

We all have moms. Some are good, some not so much. Normally, I write about shifters or vampires who once used to human. Their mommy issues are relative to ours, but about other creatures not born to humankind? 

Monsters have mothers too. I can’t resist playing with some of the Nature vs Nuture aspects of say a dragon born in a magical world. His up-bringing could be similar to ours, but I somehow doubt play dates and pre-school would be available for them. LOL
Would a dragon mother caudle her child or rear it to fight for himself? I think that’s more of a personality trait then a thing of race. 

Koishi’s mother is a mercenary. She taught him the only she knew well, how to fight. Dragged from battle to battle as babe as soon as he could walk on his own she placed a sword in his hand. Child services would have field day with this. 

Grown into one of the world’s greatest warrior Koishi is recruited by a Gate to protect it for life. It’s the greatest honor a warrior can receive, but the centuries spent isolated on a small island on Earth surrounded by humans has made Koishi fond of them. So when he takes a human lover and his mom visits, she doesn’t understand why he’s playing with his food.
