Foreth was losing energy again, but she dutifully settled her eggs under her before she took a break. Kassia was content to sit there with Mendl and just watch the Queen for as long as it took.
Sunlight gave way to the light of the full moon coming in from outside and the glows that stood around the Caverns. The feeling became a lot more intimate as the lower light shown off the Sands.
In time Foreth was at it again and after some grunting another egg laid on the Sands. In the lower light, it was hard to see what was going on in the mess of dark colors, but Kassia thought she saw the glint of sharp teeth.
The next egg came immediately after and ended up in a spot highlighted by a glow. The outside was light green and looked almost like sparkling water.
“Surely she’s done now,” Kassia whispered only to be proven wrong about ten minutes later when another dark blue, watery looking egg came out.
((One...more...)) Foreth panted as she took care of the last egg, her movements belabored.
