Finally Shireth settled down to sleep and I'ent was able to find comfort in his own bed only to be woken up just as the sky was barely brightening from the dark of night. It took I'ent a moment to realize what woke him up, he would feel Shireth was awake but something was wrong, she felt so angry.
Shireth, what's wrong? Are you hurt? I'ent sent out to her as he pulled on his trousers, wanting to head out to see her himself.
<I am perfectly fine but it's nearly dawn and it's time for a new adventure and here you are sleeping away. Not that I want you to come with me, not for this one but you will be with me anyway because where I am you will always be my Precious.> Shireth replied, her eyes whirling red. <I feel though like I need a special treat something to fuel my special adventure but I ate so recently and this isn't an adventure one could start with stomach distended from too much raw meat.<
I'ent frowned, utterly confused by his green's rambling. Now that he had trousers on and had time to pull on his boots he felt dressed enough to head down to his girl to see what was really wrong. He stepped outside of his apartment and quickly ran up the slight incline till he could see his dragon. The first thing that caught his attention was how bright she seemed. The brighter spots of green glowed like they were lit from within, it was breath taking. He paused to just look at her for a few seconds before continuing towards her. Before he could get more than a few steps closer Shireth gave a bellowing roar that was more challenge than anything then she took to the air flying out over the Weyr.
<I know what I want and it's not sitting here on the ground, what I want is a grand adventure and all your lovely males are welcome to join me. There better be eight of you because any less will not make the count, any less and none of you will catch me. So come blues and browns and darling pyrites, soar with me pewter men oh and bring the shiny bronze but most of all, least we forget, bring the mighty Wraith cause he may be right for me.
Watching Shireth circling the Weyr Courtyard and calling to all the males it dawned on I'ent finally what was going on. Shireth was rising to mate. Panic started to creep into his mind even as her lust inflamed his body, he had no idea what he was suppose to do. He didn't even think to declare the flight open or not nor did he even know if he wanted to end up with some random partner. It was far too late now for any of that.
You called Wraith? No, don't pick him...Locke's married. I'ent mentally squeaked. Locke may be his mentor and a good friend but I'ent didn't feel about him in that way...or did he? Right now the idea of being with Locke didn't seem so bad....or was that Shireth's lust he was feeling?
>Silly Precious, you'll always be mine but as I trust you so must you trust me. We will have a grand adventure together no matter who I choose. Lay back, enjoy the ride, for this Adventure is Mine!> Shireth did her best to assure her rider. He was ready just as she was and that was all that mattered, even if he didn't realize it himself. Besides he was no child and it was about time he had a little adventure of his own.
With Shireth's reassurances I'ent swallowed heavily, turned and made his stumbling way back to his Apartment, hoping he could keep enough of himself in his body to get him safely home.
That settled Shireth turned her mind to her new adventure and the fun that will follow...if any of the males who chase her prove worthy of course.
<Come one, come all for I fly to find a special one. Who among you will prove to be the Precious One for only he will do for me.> Shireth called once more. She gave another challenging trumpet then broke from her circling and flew off towards the the distant mountains. <Til I find my Precious One, I'll fly, I'll fly, I'll fly,> Shireth called out to the males before launching herself into the air.
OOC: There we go, Shireth's maiden flight! All males are welcome and not just those who posted in the planning Thread. Winner will be determined by random roll (Shireth's call to Wraith was just a tease, he gets no better chance than any other who joins the fun) Anybody wanting to help I'ent to his apartment is more than welcome. This will be a two round flight
