Elayne stood nervously at the edge
of the bay. The water trickled around her bare feet, warm and soothing.
But above her feet the impact was nearly zero. Her heart raced, her breath
never seemed to fill her lungs and her mind wandered.
Then the sound of splashing sounded through the water.
"It's coming for you!" Illya screamed. From the shore Stassyn cheered.
His sleeping Sun Sennex laying next to him, not realising the importance
of this moment for his bond. Elayne held out the small dragon plushie she
had received to lure the baby dragon toward her. She felt silly, but she
couldn't help pinking away a tear at the memory of that other child she
had brought to this world... well not this world.
A blue head appeared above the surface. Drops of water seemingly running
down it's neck. The female water squealed as she saw the toy and jumped.
Her body lifted from the water and arched through the air on a set course
to the plushie.
"Plaaaay!" she yelled. In the process of grabbing the toy she
pushed Elayne under.
Not much later a soaking wet Elayne left the water, cradling a very happy
female water in her arms.
"What is her name?" Ittax asked.
"Marakesh." Elayne smiled, she told me under water.
