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
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?"
"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
