Mating Flight


Alba <Alba@...>
 

Alba felt the burning hunger of her queen as Toreth woke up. Alba walked quickly to the ledge where Toreth had been sleeping. The dragon was glowing a bright gold colour. She launched off of the ledge and dropped into the Bowl, flying with powerful wingstrokes to the hunting ground. She dived towards a herdbeast, snatching it in her talons and carrying it up to the ridge. {Blood it only, Toreth. Listen to me Toreth, blood it only, don't eat it} Alba commanded her queen. Toreth tried to resist her, but Alba kept repeating her command to her. Alba sincerely hoped that R'tal and Talith, and L'ion and bronze Radhruith were nearby as Toreth dived from the ridge for another herdbeast.

R`tal stopped and turned midstroke, going under breifly in shock as his dragon communicated to him.
((Toreth is rising))
((Now? Shards, not now! No ones at the weyr!))
Talith rose from the water, droplets scattering off him below as his wings began to beat powerfully.
((Nevertheless, she is rising now!))
Just as swiftly as he had swum out into the water R`tal made his way back, heedless of his wet clothes as he raced back towards the weyr, dripping wet. The others would have to make their own way back.
Talith meanwhile flew to where Torith was, his large brown form magnificant in the sky.
