Adrienna smiled in a slightly flirtatious manner and extended a hand. "Adrienna. That sounds like a fun skill."
What the heck is that human doing? Asuka thought as Adrienna extended her hand. The dragon took a quick step back as though the woman were about to strike her. Had her cover already been blown? Was this woman secretly a dragon hunter who had been hunting her since she started her journey? Asuka began sweating profusely. What was she going to do? Should she reveal her dragon form and try to devour this woman before she attacked? That was risky. Surely she had impressed the rest of the crew by revealing that she once pushed a thunderstorm out of her bowels, but it was unknown whether or not they would turn on her if she took on her true form.
Asuka stopped herself. The woman had yet to attack. In fact, she was actually smiling in what Asuka could only assume was a flirtatious manner. What sort of game was this strange woman playing? Regardless, considering the fact that she was still alive, she did not seem to be hostile. That must be it. Extending the hand must be a traditional human gesture of heterosexual greeting. This woman did not want to kill her...at least, not yet. She could still salvage this situation! All she had to do was extend her own hand and grasp hers in return. It was so simple! Humans have the best hand gestures.
But, what if it was more complicated than that? If I extend my hand, perhaps she will be insulted? It's impossible for me to know! I've never seen another human do anything like this before! Worse yet, if she returned her gesture, would she place herself on the same level of Adrienna? She could not afford to do that if she wanted to crown herself a goddess. She had to be above the common rabble! And for someone as extraordinary as herself, she had to greet the masses with a gesture unlike anything they had ever seen! A gesture worthy of a goddess! But what could she do? They both seemed to have a common interest in vomiting. Perhaps they could vomit into each other's mouth?
All this overthinking caused Asuka to begin sweating profusely.
Her heart felt like it was about to explode out of her chest. She had to do something! Wait, she remembered something back from when she originally emerged in the human world. She remembered seeing a pair of dogs greet each other in a very affectionate manner. And humans served dogs! So, if she wanted to be served by humans, she needed to use one of their gestures! And so, without further ado, Asuka hopped forward and licked Adrienna across the face.
"Well met Adrienna! May our sharing of saliva seal our friendship for centuries, provided you humans live that long." She stumbled over her words a bit, but hopefully the human would be distracted by her sharing of fluids that she would fail to pay attention.
"Well," Sir Gisburn said carefully, trying not to offend the possibly insane woman "that's...interesting. Is that a common thing for people in the East to do...?"
Some fat merchant whose body was literally overflowing with fat hesitantly greeted her. He certainly lacked the confidence of the sultry female human. Probably because he was fat. Seriously, it was though he had been asked what he wanted for breakfast every day for a year and he always said "everything." She could generate herself ten extra human forms just from his excess mass. Yet, despite her initial disgust, Asuka found herself mesmerized by it as well. He jiggled like a jello bowl every time he made even the slightest movement. It was hypnotic in a strange way, and before she realized what she was doing, Asuka found herself staring.
Asuka literally slapped herself to snap herself out of it. This fat man was no ordinary human. "Absolutely not, for you see I am not ordinary! Why, I would go so far as to say that I am exceptional! I, my fair fat man, am a goddess!" Asuka said, raising her hand high. "Please try to contain your enthusiasm. Instead, focus your energy instead into worshiping me. I will bring you all a lifetime of eternal happiness!"
"And all I need in return is your unquestioning loyalty. So feel free to bow people!" She then pointed at the merchant. "You can just nod your head if bowing is too hard."
