Weather at Acicade had been pleasant.
The sun's rays were getting warmer, the trees had started sprouting new
leaves and just about everyone in and around the castle was feeling the
blessings of the coming spring. It was in these promising times that
Forest Waikiki's clutch hatched and that the aspirants were called to the
deep cavern. The sheltered room with one wall completely made of
glass-in-lead was awash with colours as the sun shone through the
different coloured panes. Stinga and Phiol, knights to the two draks that
ha parented this clutch, stood outside the doors, guarding the mother and
her draklings. Zoriyn, the sire of the clutch, seemed calm but his eyes
scanned everyone who entered. But the dark mud drak needn't have worried
as no strangers appeared to be present.
The aspirants were guided to a small space in front and to the side of the
benches for the spectators. Forest Waikik had announced four eggs, but
when she walked out, 6 draklings followed her. In the bright light of the
day the colours of the draklings weren't a mystery. Green and Brown
colours were prominently present but among those a single day drakling
stood out. The playful male couldn't contain his excitement as he swooshed
right past his mother and headed straight for the female drak that had
come from the stars. A plant male and forest female followed suit after
their mother had properly introduced them to the world. Forest Waikiki
seemed to give each of her children some life advice.
Three dragons remained behind Waikiki and all of them were coloured in
shades of brown. Two of them seemed particularly close and seemed to act
in a similar way. The two of them had in fact hatched from the same egg.
Because of that they were on the smaller side but with proper care they
would not stay small. Waikiki saw the strength of her mate in them and
knew that they too would head straight for their dreams. She wished to
caution them to not forget that there was more to life than work and
"My twin ssonss Menkiyn and Liekiyn, follow
your hearts as much as your minds and find those people and things that
you truly love, starting with your knights."
The lighter, tan-coloured Menkiyn headed for the white-haired Malina. The
darker, brown Liekiyn headed for Maimoun, the serious glass artisan from
around Castle DesCas and said:
"I'm Liekiyn, I will join you."
"Even if joining me means you'll have to leave this forest
behind?" Maimoun asked.
He had come to like the abundance of trees and shade the forest offered,
but he had pledged to return to Castle DesCas and he would keep that
"DesCasss iszn't that far away."
Liekiyn insisted, he'd been told where all the aspirants were from and in
truth Maimoun was probably the one who would remain closest to home.
"Touch down on that open spot to
the right!" Maimoun called.
Liekiyn gave a slight nod with his head and angled himself to land on the
indicated spot. It was a bit to the side of the main landing flat but
seeing as the Castle seemed to be busy today, Liekiyn agreed that landing
a bit further out would be best for them. No use in antagonising some of
the older draks who would become his senior in the armada.
Within minutes a slender night drak appeared on the horizon and headed
their way. On top of her was the slight form of Rahma. They hadn't seen
each other in years but she'd hardly changed.
"It's good to see you." she grinned.
"I'm glad to be back, although all those trees sure were nice."
"Don't get me started about the sea and a pleasant ocean
breeze." Rahma retorted.
Beside them, their draks were getting acquainted as well. Even if some
knights formed a connection, it was possible that their draks did not
follow the same route. Only time would tell whether Diawha and Liekiyn
would mate. First they'd both need to get settled and join one of the
three main armadas that protected DesCas and it's neighbouring
One step. Maimoun thought. One step at a time.
Maimoun and Liekiyn joined the Desert Light Armada at DesCas.
Liekiyn found a life mate in Night Diawha
