[flight] the long glide

She’d never seen her hide glow so. Lalah ran the rag around Maggy’s muzzle one last time, not really watching what she was doing, but admiring the whole. Shades of blue, pinpoints of brightness. Eyes whirling soft happiness as they looked at her.

“It seems I’m just in time.” An unusual emotion spiraling between their link. Lalah had felt it very few times herself. Once or twice. Like a spike in pulse or a blow to the stomach that didn’t hurt. Just churned.

I think you are right. Desire. Aimless desire with no one and no thing to settle upon. There would be though. Soon. Because it wasn’t Lalah’s oiling that had made Magsith’s hide glow like that, but the need to rise and find a mate in the sky.

“You will have to climb high.” She instructed as they walked. Theirs was a lower weyr since her dragon could not reach the great heights others could. Even with Lalah to see what she could not. It just wasn’t practical or safe. “I’ll watch, and help you, but you know the bowl.”

I do. The blue agreed. Lalah worried, but she locked those worries away from her friend. Magsith was kind and good, but not weak. Lalah still worried. Now was a time for boldness, which her dragon possessed, not fears over how others might greet her. Up. Up to a higher ledge than their own.

“Just a little borrowing.” Just for a jumping off point. She looked hard out over the Weyr and shared everything she saw with her bonded. “You’ll be glorious.” And safe, she hoped. Stroking Maggy’s soft neck, she kissed a fine cheek plate and stepped away into the shadows. This was not about her. The desire was no her own but her dragon’s. A pleasant pulse, but she could not be distracted.

“Go!”

Times have been hard, but we are not broken! She promised her Weyr. And they were not. Even she could fight Thread. They would survive. Come, show me how boldness and kindness can win any fight.

Why.

Sven did not have much more of a chance to question before Cresceth was in the air. Well, he had learned to not really question the bronze too much. Besides, it wasn't like there was a gold rising, and it wasn't like he was about to be leader.

So, he just waved his dragon off and closed his door.

I will chase The pale bronze declared, with remarkably little fanfare.

Lalah worried. Sharing her eyes with Magsith often helped when she was astride, but from her ledge-side balcony the prospective was too different. Blue wingtip brushing stone, Magsith made a slow circle. Chasers shapes without definition in the air around her. They came from above and below.

Higher. Lalah fretted, trying not to envision dragon coils impacting the ground. I know. And she did.

Magsith caught a thermal. The variation in air a blur along the facets of her eye. Turning into it she swept her wings around the rising flow of heated air and rode it upward in a dizzying spiral. She had never been higher! Jaws parting, Magsith bulged her elation toward the gleam of rubak and arched downward again.

Cresceth! Magsith called. Strong enough to see them both safely down, and his hide shone brightest, catching even her eye.

On the ledge, Lalah sank to her bottom, knees a protective barrier in front if her. So it was done.
