Reading Lessons [Heck]

According to the Harper Perelman, Quinn's dragon was meant to be the other half of her soul. She thought. His writing was looping and strange and he used words she wouldn't have understood if spoken aloud.

It was the first time she'd heard such a thing. The riders said it too sometimes, in different words.

But what did that say about her? Her dragon wasn't kind or moral or decent. If Louicyth was half of Quinn's soul...was she just lying to herself when she thought she could be someone good?

This was one of many reasons why Quinn disliked reading. It made her think of things best left in shadows.

Don't be a coward, rider, Louicyth instructed as he walked besides her, Truths don't turn to lies and sparks don't burn out simply because we choose not to acknowledge them.

Quinn tried her best to ignore him as she knocked on Zul's door. Zul read. Zul read practical, useful things that weren't full of Harper philosophy. She could help.

Zul had just gotten a letter from her parents, and was delighted to read that they were doing well. Theyd heard that shed Stood and had wanted to be there in case she Impressed. But schedules had conflicted and they couldnt go.

It was just as well.

She looked up as she heard a knock on the door. Stuffing the letter under her pillow, she opened up and-

"Oh hey Quinn. Louicyth, was it?" that was the name shed heard around because boy was Louicyth popular. People all had opinions about the bronze-white chimera... but Zul had withheld judgement. She just thought hed looked nice.

But Quinn didnt seem happy... "What's going on?"

Indeed, Louicyth said politely. From his rider's memories, she had seen Louicyth hatch, which meant she remembered more of his life than he could, And you are Zul. I'm afraid I don't recall meeting you but my rider knows you.

For some reason, his rider thought this one a friend. She looked rather like every other human to Louicyth. But he could be patient. Whatever spark drew his rider to her would reveal itself in time.

"He doesn't mean that you are particularly unmemorable," Quinn promised. Because everything Louicyth said sounded a bit superior. Even when they were the ones here to ask for help because somehow a turn of candidacy hadn't been enough to teach her to read, "Just that he's a dragon and as such, can't remember more than three days back...Anyway, I was wondering if I could take you up on those reading lessons. Or at borrow some scrolls on something other than Harper philosophy."

"The Weyr's a big place and I'm a random Candidate, Louie. Don't worry yourself about me." She replied, waving at him and turning to Quinn. "...Why are you reading Harper literature? If I wanted to see incomprehensible scribbles, I'd dip a bunch of flits' claws in ink and let them loose on a bunch of skins."

She chuckled and let them inside. "I still have very basic books with me. What I found always helps is trying to visualize the stuff you're reading. Ah... even if that stuff was guard formations and the proper way to clean a uniform." She coughed. "but yeah. Is it just reading specifically? Or is it reading and understanding?"
