As before, it was barely dawn when he felt Shireth waken, a powerful mix of lust and burning desire coursing along their link. I'ent had expected it would be this morning so made sure he was up earlier than normal so he could feed Ancient and see the wingless firelizard safe before I'ent was consumed by his dragon's need.
Shireth felt her passions burning and was eager for her newest adventure. It was her third time to rise and she knew so much more about herself and how to make the boys who chase her earn her attention. Bugling her desire loudly she strutted out from her pavilion, wings spread and the brighter green patches on her hide glowing like they were lit from within. Even the 'ring' pattern on her neck seemed to have it's own fiery glow.
>Harken boys, that time has come. To adventure we must go once more, the sky to conquer, the sun to challenge,> Shireth called out both mentally and with a brazen bugle. [color]>Who among you dare face the challenge with me or will you all lay about in the morning sun too cowardly to try you hand with me?>[/color]
Really, Shireth? I'ent asked, finding her challenge a bit over board. He considered mentioning some males may have more important things to do than chase her especially when there were more than enough greens and other female dragons around to mean a mating flight nearly every other day. But he knew better to say that to her at this moment. She could be offended by the thought she didnt' have every male's attention.
<Trust me, they will all know it's my time but only the bravest of them will dare take on my challenge. Those who don't I don't want anything to do with them so they are best hiding under their tents till its all over.> Shireth responded. She didn't give I'ent time to respond before she bellowed once more and launched into the sky, crying out for the males to join her. Rising up well above the Weyr she leveled off and flew as quickly as she could towards the sea before taking a sharp turn and diving down towards open ground. Giving a roar she watched as a herd of wild herdbeasts fled before her, tempting her to take one to sink her teeth in. As quick as the thought crossed her mind she dismissed it. Blood and meat wasn't what she craved so with a burst of speed she resumed climbing, beating her wings hard to gain as much altitude as she could. Then the fun truly began.
I'ent unlocked and threw his door open then stepped back to stand near the entrance to his bedroom, waiting for the riders to come. As the chase began outside I'ent wondered if there would be female riders this time or will it all be male ridden dragons who chase his darling. Locke was good at his word and had introduce him to some women who seemed nice enough. I'ent was probably more relaxed around them than he would have been normally solely because of the trust he had for Locke but he hadn't done more than just talk and get to know them a little better. He didn't know whether he liked them anymore than he would a friend but at least he was starting to see women weren't all out to get him as he envisioned all women were due to his upbringing.
Soon all thought of who he might end up with today fled his mind as he became more linked with Shireth as she twisted and turned through the air. He felt the wind upon his wings, the feel of the sun, the powerful beats of her heart as she pushed herself more and more, making those males who cased her push themselves to keep up with her. Soon all I'ent could see was the sky and when his darling looked back, the array of dragons chasing her.
Shireth climbed once more after performing a serious of complex twists, dives and turns, feeling her wings start to burn with the effort. Still she climbed and with a quick glance over her shoulder to make sure the males were still with her, she started to slow down. Let them think she was spent and ready to be caught. Just as one tried to reach for her she folded her wings tight against her body and dropped out of his reach, falling through the ranks of dragons till she was several dragonlengths below before she snapped her wings open and soared off, chuckling at how successful she thought her trick was.
<I am not as easy as you thought, silly boys. Now you just have to work it all the more to impress me.> Shireth called out before diving once more, letting her wings rest as gravity pulled her down. Once she felt she fell far enough she pulled out of her dive and climbed once more, giving a chortle of glee at the fun she was having this time around.
Her trick cause her in the end however as she grew tired faster this time around as she climbed high. By the time she reached the point she was before her trick, her wings burned even more. It was time for the adventure to end but who to pick?
ooc: Just going to have the one round this time, so jump in and make catch attempts. Next week I will pick the winner via random role so get your boys in quickly.
