goes out for drinks and sleeps in.

As usual the day was pleasantly warm at
Dawn, with a light breeze cooling down the stone-covered area that led to
the sheltered deep cavern. It had rained that morning, and the area around
the castle seemed to be caught in a fog that made the stories about
pirates and bloodshed all the more believable. Of course, since Raf had
taken up the rule of Dawn Castle, more than one pirate had come to land.
In fact, two of the resident aspirants were pirates. Other than that there
were a few delegates from the other castles and some offworld travellers
that had arrived by some unknown magical means. Nobody really cared about
that, it had happened before.
Once everyone had gathered, the heavy doors to the deep cavern opened and
the two draks strode out, each accompanied by her draklings. They settled
on opposite sides of the door. Meyanal waited patiently as Kuniri strode
forward and started calling a name. The drak mothers took turns and
Dahmura watched as each drakling paired with one of the aspirants.
Meyanal let her last remaining drakling crawl in front and called his
name: "Hyalos. Be steadfast and sure in all
The little white and brown drakling looked up at his mother and nodded
solemnly before walking over to the desert tribesman who'd fought more
battles than he would admit to and went to stand quietly by his side.
With all aspirants and draklings paired, the crowd gave a final applause
and the cheers lasted longer now as onlookers and family members swarmed
around the new pairs to wish them luck and hear their stories and
expectations. High Prince Raf gestured for the food to be brought around,
knowing all those pirates would get rowdy without some food and drink to
keep them entertained. Meanwhile Xander let in the trainers and some
experienced riders to introduce them to the squires. Tomorrow morning
they'd start training but tonight was for dreaming and being merry.
Trainer: Gunnar & Desert Phakios (Fighting)
Dahmura returned to Castle DesCas where
Taahira had paired her own drakling, though since she'd had to wait a bit
longer than him, she was still training. Returning to DesCas had always
been the plan for Dahmura, even regardless of his growing feelings for the
bright and vibrant woman. There was just something about the desert that
eased his mind and calmed his blood. It was the place where he needed to
"I hope you don't mind the sun." Dahmura told Hyalos as they
"I'm pretty sure I'm reflective." the recently
matured drak told his knight.
"You can blind our adversaries then."
"I shall do so with brilliance."
Dahmura and Earth Hyalos joined the Desert Light Armada at DesCas.
Hyalos found a life mate in Forest Allayahi
