Philip and Rhean still stood where they had placed themselves at the
beginning of the naming and pairing ceremony. Giving a sympathetic smile
to Rhean, Phiol opened his mouth to say that there had been a lot of
aspirants for the two small clutches that had been around, only to be
interrupted by a white-blue drak entering the deep cavern area with a row
of draklings following her like they were attached with a rope.
"Rhean, look!" he called as the first of the baby draks
disattached herself from the line.
The small drak was the same colouration as her
mother, white with blue and two big beautiful eyes that looked at only one
aspirant left in the cavern.
"You you you!" The little
Wind cried. "I am Umynri!"
Phiol watched Rhean laugh, lighting up her face, and making her look like
her sister for a single moment, before the seriousness took place on her
face again. Still chuckling from what the drakling told her she left to
feed her new companion with a wave and a heads up for Phiol.
Not to be outdone of course, a Mud male walked sedately up to Phiol who
wasn't really paying attention to the cavern and the draklings until the
mud was nearly completely upon him.
"Thossse two will need to be watched,"
said the drak. "We can do it, I am
"Thanks, I think we'll need to start soon..." Phiol
Stinga waited impatiently for Phiol and his drak to appear. It had been
four long years in which they'd only been able to see each other - and the
rest of the family - for short visits in between training and jobs. The
entire family had promised to ask to join one of the DesCas armadas so
they would meet up eventually.
Not too long ago she'd heard from one of the high
Knights that a new transfer was coming in, a male knight from Dun Keiba.
Stinga just knew it was Phiol. Sure there was a slight chance that it
would be someone else, but she only knew one man that had gone to Dun
keiba and had promised to return to her.
And when finally Phiol and his drak Zoriyn appeared from a portal above
Castle DesCas, Stinga could not stay on the ground. With her forest drak
Waikiki, she flew toward her lover and greeted him in the air.
"Finally!". she called, "What took you so long?"
"Looking after your sister." he grinned, "You know how she
"That I do." Stinga nodded, "Is she coming?"
"In a few days. But enough about your sister. I want to talk about
you, about us."
Stinga blushed and guided Phiol to the landing flat where they both landed
safely and quickly dismounted to embrace with a tight hug.
"I missed you." Stinga sighed.
On the landing flat, their draks were getting acquainted and like their
knights, their personalities matched. Waikiki was already rubbing her head
against Zoriyn's and the male drak did not try to get away. The low rumble
that came from him foretold that he would not let another touch his

more serious than his twin Philip, always getting dragged into
things his brother conceives. There is only one thing Phiol
would change about himself, and that's the sleeptalking he so
often does, blurting out his secrets where the ears of his
ever watchful brother can hear them.
