is a candidate at Blue Sky Weyr
energy bubble wondered around in space. It had no feeling, no sense of time. It
didn't know how long it had wondered around. It even couldn't think.
energy bubble was yellow, then orange. Its energy was weakening. It needed to
stop somewhere and become powerful again. So it was that just there it found a
It landed and when it went into the atmosphere, it changed into a man. It looked
like a falling star, making a crater when it landed.
When it got up, it looked around. It didn't speak, it couldn't speak... But what
was that voice in his head telling him what to do? He liked to have somebody to
The voice told him that his name was timothy. And that he and the voice were the
So his name was Timothy. Could he speak just like that voice in his mind?
He didn't know, what he did know was that he never wanted to leave that voice.
He had been alone for so long...
tried to speak. But only a really high sound came out of his mouth. It hurt his
ears, and when he looked around, he saw that everything was death, did he do
He hoped not. He didn't want to kill anything. He wanted to have things to talk
to. He looked at the ground. He felt sad. He couldn't talk.. never would he be
able to speak to some-one.
sat there for a day or something when a man, smaller and rounder than him, came
through his landing place.
The man looked at him, what he saw was a tall, yellow-orangey man sitting there
naked. He didn't talk, he didn't even notice him. He though of him as odd.
The man, who lived with him, walked up to him and said: 'Can I help you sir?'
Timothy only looked at him, he didn't want to speak..
'Can you speak?'
Timothy looked at the ground. He could understand him.. but how would he tell
the man that he would kill him. He shook his head.
The man was even more with compassion gave him some clothes. 'Here put this on,
so you wont be cold.'
Timothy was happy and his sad dark orange eyes turned into spring yellow ones.
He smiled. He liked to smile, it was the first time he felt happy ever...
'Come, I can't just leave you here... I will take you to Blue Sky Weyr. They
will help you there.
Timothy put on the clothes, they were old, to big for him, but he was very
walked very slowly, because Timothy was taking his first steps as a human. But
after a few moments, he could walk good enough to go a bit faster.
It seemed that there wouldn't come an ending to the walk. Timothy was feeling
very tired and his legs weren't cooperating anymore. But then the man stopped
and said that the weyr was there and pointed at a mountain. Timothy looked at
it. Was that going to be his new home. With people around him day and night?
The man asked. A young girl came to them and looked at them.
'Is he another candidate?' she asked. It seemed that the man knew the girl.
'If there is a space open.. He can't talk and I think he's very lonely...'
'He's in luck.. There is one space open. He can follow me.'
The girl took Timothy to another cave, near the one they came from. It was
different though. It was filled with sand and there was a green dragon
protecting something. Timothy looked at the dragon. He had never seen a dragon
before. He fell in love with the dragons and as he came closer, he saw some
'Now you have to wait here and maybe you will get a dragon.. Who knows. Good
The girl left him and when Timothy looked around, he saw that he wasn't alone.
There were a lot of other candidates waiting around the eggs and on the side of
the cave were people looking at the eggs and candidates. His attention was drawn
to one of the eggs and he looked close to it.
hatched and all looked very happy to there dragons. Timothy wanted to feel happy
too. But no dragon seemed to want him. He felt sad and looked down at the
Not far from him an egg started to rock heavely. But it didn't seem to make it.
Wasn't it to strong to get out of his shell? Timothy bend down without thinking
and helped the egg. Timothy looked
surprised as the egg he had been helping hatched, the little green letting out
cries of hunger. 'Feed
me! I am Reth'
left with Reth. He felt happy. He could jump up and down! And he could talk to
her without hurting anyone.
He saw how she landed and how she ate. He himself felt also hungry, but he
didn't leave Reth. He just couldn't leave his best friend.
dragon was eating alot. And that is why Reth was such a big green dragon. He
still couldn't talk to anybody, But he didn't care anymore. Reth and Timothy
were unsepratable. They were always together and nobody knew what they were
saying. But that didn't matter that much because everybody was buzzy taking care
of there dragon.
