It was late in the afternoon when Einaki
emerged from the deep cavern where she had been alone with her eggs for
the past night and day. Three hatchlings toddled behind her, still a bit
clumsey on their feet, but following determined to make a pairing.
The first baby of Einaki and Ustos stretched lazily before even looking at
the aspirants. Rhaeen looked irritated about the hold up, but Quent
watched with a smile playing around the corners of his mouth. This one was
his, or so he had been led to believe by the drakling who still did not
seem interested in moving.
The first drakling was an ore, like his father. Testing his gold coloured
wings, the drakling finally walked slowly paying much attention at how he
looked at Quent.
"I think I’ll pick you."
The Ore drak looked at him. "My name isss Ooïlakios."
"And mine is Quent." Grinning, he and his drak left.
Briefly Quent wondered how Rhean was fairing at Dun keiba and if Rhaeen
would be able to pair a suitable drak that would be able to live with her
quirks. Shaking his head he pushed all those thoughts back, tomorrow, then
he would send out messages, today he needed to get to know this truely
amazing individual named Ooïlakios.
Messages had been sent between Dun Keiba and Chindor often in the years
after both Rhean and Quent had paired. As both were diligent and
trustworthy the letters were often written late at night after a busy day,
but the feelings conveyed in them were not sad nor grumpy. They shared
their triumphs, their joy and their hope for the future.
After a few years both their draks had become strong enough to fly and
portal across Icarus. Which meant that although they could not live
together yet, they could meet up at least.
"He's there!" Umynri called
excitedly as Quent's Ore drak appeared in the sky.
"That I am." Ooïlakios
commented as he landed.
Being an ore he was punctual, but the girls had been excited and had
gotten to the meeting location early. Rhean ran up to Quent as Umynri
stepped closer to the ore drak, both pairs getting (re-acquainted. They
had an entire afternoon of time. A luxury after 2 years of lessons,
training and care.
"I've missed you." Quent admitted.
"I've missed you too." Rhean answered, "But I have you here
now. Let's not watse our time being sad."

||Quent at 18
||Quent is the most serious of
his brothers and raised to always take care of his younger
brothers and the three neighbouring girls... though it was
hard work for just one boy to do. He got a lot of help from
Rhean though, leading to what might have been the first of the
three current couples.
||Quent is the oldest of the
four Pioen brothers.
Quent is already engaged to Rhean, but they're waiting till
after their draks have matured to get married.
||A tall, decisive Ore
||All about sleeping, being
lazy and downright ignoring his trainer when it comes to
excercise and practice.
