Spring Cleaning and       
            Foolish Dancing


Meraidt and Yumiel, the two mother draks watched over their draklings. The aspirants had already gathered inside and some were playing with the draklings. Soon after the draklings started to announce their decisions.
Two deserts from Meraidt's clutch rushed towards the aspirants as though concerned they weren't going to be able to Pair with their choices. One of them, Naldtan, slunk quietly over to Philip. "Let'sss get out of herrre, Philip," he said, somewhat grumpily. "I'm hungrrry."
"Whatever you say, Naldtan," Philip replied, a smile tugging at his lips.

Trainers: Daryl & Fire Blaukios
Knight Training

Philip had waited a long time to pair at Castle Drockh-Tallahn, Rhaeen had managed to pair a good year before him so she was the one that had been flying in to visit. But today things would be different. Naldtan was all grown up and ready to make the trip to Castle DesCas where both he and Rhaeen would join an armada. All of the Pioen and Viooltje siblings had put in the request to return closer to home and though they'd argued at times, Philip was actually looking forward to seeing everyone on a more regular basis again.
"Lost in thought, I see?" Naldtan asked.
"Just thinking about moving back home."
"Do you think I'll like it there?"
"Well it is warmer than you're used to." Philip shrugged.
They took off and portaled to Castle DesCas, using the coordinates and images their trainer had supplied them with. It took some concentration still but that would ease as they visited more places. 
"Look, there are Rhaeen and Madalloski!" Philip shouted.
Madalloski and Rhaeen had noticed the other two at the same time and moved a little to the side so Naldtan could land safely. Though saftey was a bit overrated. The two of them had been training as jousters and Rhaeen loved the thrill of the danger the sport brought. She'd become stronger and fitter over the last years and hoped Philip would not be taken aback by the extra muscle she'd developped. 
"If he doesn't like it we can just look elsewhere." Madalloski noted.
"I've known him since we were children." Rhaeen said, "I doubt I'll love anyone in the same way."
"Every love is different but as precious." the forest drak told her.
"Look at us being so serious." Rhaeen smiled, "Must be old age creeping up."
"Try to give advice and this is my reward?" Madalloski joked, "Well let's just hope you don't ave to use it."
But they needn't have worried. Philip had bulked up a bit while training as well and didn't even seem to notice that Rhaeen had kept up with him as she fit just as well in his embrace as before they'd tried their luck at the castles.
