Continued from Fate Is Gonna Call
The goldrider had never really been to a wher Hatching before since Isil Tunnelhold had been removed from the Weyr while she was growing up, and shortly after the handlers had moved to the South with them, Safryn had Impressed to Soquilith so there hadn't been much time after that. Once upon a time, Shayn had contemplated what it would be like to bond to a wher instead of a dragon. The siblings had talked for many nights on the subject, and Safryn had promised him a trip to the tunnelhold so he could find out more if he wanted. Unfortunately, they never had the chance to take that trip though...
The young woman hadn't thought about that time in a while, those conversations with her brother and the promise she'd made...Now that she was here though, watching the andalusite hand out the eggs herself, she couldn't help but wonder if Shayn would have been found worthy or not. She found herself looking at the newest hatchlings with a longing, though it was more for the want of her brother back, for him to be here beside her and witness the Hatching as well. Thoughts of her family were never far from her mind though, what sort of joke her brother would have come up with that day, or what her father might say after a long day of work, and she liked to think her mother would be proud of her achievements. Thankfully, though she had a new family to help her each day, with three beautiful children that were getting bigger every day, and a man in her life that was devoted to her, and she to him.
"I can't speak for you but for me it definitely is," he answered softly, leaning in to give her cheek a kiss and returning the squeeze of his hand. "I only hope you are not kept up too late."
Safryn's gaze drifted back to the brownrider at her side, a soft smile finding it's way to her lips as he leaned in for the tender kiss. "Seeing that sparkle in your eye is more than worth a sleepless night." The redhead said softly, moving to lean against H'tai and laying her head against his shoulder as she looked back toward the Hatching and watched an older man getting tugged from out of the crowd and brought before an egg. The shell quickly gave way to the hatchling though, an adorable striped looking green that already looked like she would be a cute little handful. "Oh she's darling...and those ears. I could see why Shayn wanted one." She mused quietly, smiling at the little green as the older man took her aside.
A glance was given to the brownrider, but a short one as she settled back on the Sands once more. "It's a good thing one of these little cuties didn't snag you up before Ifrith could." The woman said as her arms wrapped around the brownrider, thankful for that first Flight which brought them together. "...How did your parents feel about that though?" It couldn't have been easy, deciding to go against family traditions. She and Shayn had talked long about how their parents were dragonriders and they should be too, but then again, their parents weren't really around then to give their thoughts on the matter. H'tai, however, still had family and his likely hadn't been too pleased by the choice, or perhaps they'd been supportive...she didn't really know.
