Description: Tavula has long black hair that she usually keeps in a braid.
Her eyes have a purple sheen to them and she loves to smile. She is the
daughter of one of the caravan merchants and has loved being part of the new
settlement of Dawn Cove. She likes to decorate the houses with plants and
flowers, enjoys painting and working with clay. After only knowing life on
the road, she enjoys every chance she gets to put down roots and the
decorating helps her feel like the cove will be her permanent home.
Pets: Water Elemental Pya (f) from Gineya
Evening was approaching after a long and hot summer day
when Serise notified her bond that her eggs were close to hatching. They
weren't exactly moving yet but there was something in the currents around
them that was different. As cryptic as a message that was, when a dragon
told you her eggs were hatching, you got the candidates. There were a lot
of candidates present for this hatching, but not all of them would bond
today. Several larger groups had appeared from offworld. There were about
people from Kynn and two groups from Dawn Cove. All of these would return
to their homeworld and establish nekrat colonies there. This made the
hatching feel more like an informal gathering to eat, drink and socialise.
Locals asked about how candidates had fared after previous hatchings,
wondering what had happened after they'd returned home. Others were curious
about the planets the candidates lived on and wanted to discuss flora and
fauna. Close to the beach about a dozen people were standing with their feet (or fins) in the
water, waiting for the kittens to come to them.
After the first three nekrats had impressed a wind picked up and those that scanned the skies noticed the dark clouds
gathering at the horizon. The light changed as did the smell of the air
and water, all signs that a thunder storm was brewing. Without knowing how
many eggs were still hidden in the water no-one knew whether or not the
hatching would end before the storm let loose. But the candidates would
get wet either way so they hardly thought of leaving the water. Some of
the spectators left to take shelter though, not wanting to risk getting
In the water but near the shore, Tavula suddenly felt the sand under her
feet shift and a tail caress her ankle. Quickly looking down she could
just spy a shadow of movement on the sand. Yellow on beige, the Sand
female was playing hide and seek but she was too slow and Tavula managed
to catch her tail.
"Got you!" the young woman from Dawn Cove shouted.
"You did. But I wanted you to so it's still my win." the Sand
female winked, "My name is Wamid."
The light started to dim as the clouds in the sky drew closer. It was in
those last rays of sunshine that still sparkled on the waters that the
next nekrat kitten appeared. He was fast and slender, with a pearly white
hide and stunning red fins that seemed to be made of flames. Pleased with
his dramatic entrance, the Fountain male swamp up to Parvas and said:
"I'm Sarih, pleased to meet you."
"You're amazing." Parvas exclaimed and hugged the beaming nekrat.
Sand Wamid (f)
Keshri looked over the waters of Dawn Cove like he'd done before he'd even
known where he was headed in life. Below him Volludh was playing with Wamid,
the dark aqua Lake and bright golden Sand nekrat were both calm and relaxed
dragons and they'd hit it off immediately.
A warm hand touched his shoulder as Tavula returned with some tea and
biscuits. They were sitting close to her house. There was no doubt in
Keshri's mind that they should be here. Tavula had always wanted to put down
roots and she'd already started before they'd travelled to an entirely
different planet to bond to water dragons.
"Everything okay?" Tavula asked when she saw her lover's look.
"Everything's perfect." he assured her, "I'm just amazed at
how happy I am."
Tavula smiled back at him, knowing perfectly well how he felt. She was
finally home and ready to raise a family. The past years having flown by in
the blink of an eye.
"I think our bonds are trying to tell us something though." Keshri
winked as the play in the water had turned into something a little more
Tavula grinned, "You want to try to beat them in starting a
"I don't think we can. But how bad can it be to practice?"
"I like that thought." Tavula sighed and let herself be swept away
in the happiness.
