Sh'ain laughed at his reaction.  "Sure, now.  Back then she was just another Candidate.  Although she was considered one of the favorites for Impressing a gold.  Then again, most people wouldn't have expected Kassia to Impress gold," he added with a shrug.  "Hard for any of us to know.  But I'm glad to hear you're good.  You're definitely looking better," he added quietly.

"Eh, don't look so down, lad." That was addressed to the firelizard rather than the boy, and Cremsden offered a cautious hand with a treat on it -- the white interweaving of old scars over the fingers suggested he might have good reason to be cautious. "Go on, go make friends with the rest while your person and I have a chat."

"Good girl then, good girl," Garatt petted her, and turned his attention to the tunnel snake. Which.. was still moving. "Urgh." He stared at it a minute, then moved to gently shoo the cat back from it. Even if it was only a tunnelsnake, tormenting it felt wrong.

Scally didn't resist when Garatt pulled her away. She was a *good girl*, and the thing was mostly dead anyway. The little black dog licked her chops again, then turned to rub one of her forepaws over an itchy spot on her muzzle where the tunnelsnake had bitten her.

Mystery, meanwhile, grabbed the unresisting body of the snake and started to drag it away, heading for his girl's old room in the candidate barracks.

((No. Come hunt.)) Tyren was alert now, every sense straining for the hint of that thing, sniffing at the air for more of a clue as to direction.

And then he was off, no longer playing, no longer paying attention to the fact that Kalain even existed. Even Sleek only got a brief ((This way! Come!)) as he broke into a trot.

If Wishes Were Runners, Drudges Would Ride Att: Garatt/Sofianna

Jerzy Tobin
 

SilverSpark was shifting around with a restless energy as Sofianna
worked on putting his tack on. The young runner was definitely ready
for a run, and Sofianna was of a mind to work out some of that energy
working on some speed training. He had great stamina, but as the
Arolos Cup had showed them, stamina wasn't enough if he didn't have
speed to go with it. Long distance races were well and fine, but the
shorter races were another matter, and Sofianna wanted him up to par
for those as well, so he could actually succeed in making a better
name for himself, and for her.

"Hey, you!" Sofianna called out to a boy working in the stables.
She'd seen him around a lot, lately, a new apprentice, likely. "Can
you please get me Spark's bridle? Its hanging on that hook there."

"It's like asking a dragon to leave a runner alone, isn't it? They'll probably do it, but neither of them are going to be particularly happy, and the consequences if they give in aren't worth the risk." Bl'by did have treats though, and correctly guessed what Pochi was after. He produced a treat but held it away from the wher. "Sit then, there's a lad," he said firmly, in much the same voice he used on Tiddler.

For a long moment, Pochi went on guard when someone other than his
human called out his name.  Andronda had been working a great deal on
his training, and with their bond to strengthen it, so he didn't bound
up to just anyone anymore.  But then the breeze carried the scent of

sometimes had treats in his pockets for Pochi.

~~See friend!~~ Pochi told Andronda.  ~~Go see?!~~

With a laugh, Andronda agreed, and walked forward with Pochi, who
pulled eagerly towards Bl'by.

"Be gentle, Pochi," Andronda made certain to order.  She knew that the
blue rider was always nervous around her, she didn't want to make it
worse because her wher roughed him up.
