CAUGHT BY THE RAIN
"Sasun and Susin might as well be called SaSuSin", one of their friends had said when they'd been kids. They were fraternal twins but so alike that it was hard to keep them apart until they'd grown older and puberty hit them with it's hormones and secondary gender traits. But even then they remained nigh inseparable. But of course, Meriallp wasn't a large town and most of the children living in it were often seen together. Especially during the winter when the cold crept in and sticking to the fires was the best way to spend your days. 
The cold season was coming but the days were still warm enough to allow people to go out and work. A lot of the younger people had been sent out to gather what nuts and roots they could find to store for the coming months. And so had Sasun and Susin. 
"There's some nuts up here on the higher branches!" Susin called and immediately went to climb the tree.
"Wait!" Sasun called and dislodged the nuts with the long stick he'd brought just for that purpose, "I don't want you falling and breaking an arm, or worse, a leg." 
"I don't think a leg would be worse." Susin remarked.
She was a good musician and loved to play both the small knee-harps and banjos that the village made. Breaking an arm would mean a long period without practice and a risk of not being able to play as well in the future. Breaking a leg didn't sound as bad.
"It would because I'd have to carry you back." Sasun reminded her, but he understood where she was coming from.
He played wind instruments and was particularly fond of reeds and double reeds, enjoying the quirky sounds they produced. Not being able to play them as he wanted to, would be torture. He was already feeling the effect of the colder air temperatures on the tips of his fingers.
"Hey, is it me, or is it colder than before?" he asked.
Susin looked away from the trees and noticed the black clouds gathering above them.
"I think we're in for a storm." she said and started to look for shelter.
The early fall season was prone to getting them and they were notoriously hard to predict. Just a couple of hours before they'd set out under a clear blue sky. They had missed the clouds gathering under the coloured foliage of the trees. The temperature was dropping fast as thick drops of rain started falling. Not much later, the rain turned into snow and then thin pricks of hail. 
Shivering as the snow and sleet permeated their coats, Susin and Sasun ran to look for shelter but there was little to be found as the leaves on the trees around them were pulled free by the force of wind and water. 
Bright blue eyes suddenly appeared in a wall of grey and silver. Susin smacked headfirst into the drak who had been concealed almost perfectly. The rain drak looked down and extended her wings as a makeshift roof above the two lost youths, her wingsails marked by an unusual pattern of snow.
"Hail Hail." she greeted them, an unusual reference to the weather.
"Greetings." Susin replied, a bit more formal than she usually would, "Thank you." and then the three introduced themselves. 
The roof of leathery wing did little to warm them. She shivered and felt Sasun come closer to share body heat.  They leaned into the drak who suddenly seemed to sigh.
"What's wrong?" Sasun asked, recognising that the drak might be sad.
"I jussst remembered my place of birth." Meddinsori told them, "I wass born in a flhurry of sssnow."
"Is that why your wings are like that?" Susin asked, "They're pretty."
"It issss. I've been thinking of going back there. The ssseasson ssshould be chailging about now."
Before her brother could stop her, Susin got that sparkle in her eye that meant she was having a bad idea and she blurted out: 
"Can you take us with you? I've always wanted to be an aspirant and pair a drak."
"Now you've done it." Sasun sighed.
"What, you probably feel the same way." Susin argued.
"Sure, but it's not up to us."
"Shnow's not the time to be fighting." Meddinsori said, "But it would be warmer to take you."
A slightly different portal appeared though neither Sasun nor Susin were accustomed enough with drak powers to recognise the distinct strangeness of the gateway. Meddinsori pulled them through and when they appeared on the other side, they were somewhere far stranger than the castle they had thought to see. 
"Welcome to Ryssslen." Meddinsori chimed happily, "Oh, I sssee a couple of folkss from before too!"
And then the rain drak was away, leaving the two of them to fend for themselves.
