Saphor believed what she was saying, honestly. If anyone had a chance of impressing anything, she was sure it would by Ivy. The red head had far better of a chance than she did. Hell. She didn't even want a dragon. During her time in the weyr, she realized that she preferred the whers to the dragons. There wasn't and real reason why...except they seemed to be less annoying?
Saphor really appreciated things that weren't annoying.
Speaking of. Saph's eyes shifted to the man who was standing next to Ivy when the other woman introduced him. Wow. He was really...something, wasn't he? Not really Saphor's type...but he seemed nice enough. Except for...
Except for the fact that he seemed wholly interested in Ivy.
Not that she blamed him, she was a good looking woman, even Saphor could see that. "Hello" She said as politely as possible as the man...kissed her hand? Well. That was weird. She smiled pleasantly at him. "No thank you. Believe me. You wouldn't want me to have a gold dragon. Not that I'd even want one, mind you. Too much work." She beamed at him, noticing the way his gaze was lingering on Ivy. Saphor couldn't help but let her gaze shift to where Canith was sitting in the stands. He...didn't look happy.
Nudging Ivy again, Saphor leaned over to whisper in her ear. "I'm pretty sure Canith's noticed the extra attention you're getting." The words were followed by a giggle that was almost immediately cut off by the sound of a voice in her head. Blue eyes widened and head shot up, gaze twisting to the sight of the absolutely gorgeous blue dragon on the sands. Saphor blinked. Huh. Who would have thought something so pretty could come out of such an ugly egg. Not that she'd seen which egg the blue hatchling had come out of or what it had looked like before...but they all seemed pretty ugly at first.
The woman was too stunned to speak. She just took a sidelong glance at Ivy and realized that she had heard it too. Saphor blinked, "Um. I don't know if you..." She started, stupidly, just as a green hatched and rushed at her brother, causing the blue to step out of the way and crash right into her. She probably fell back into Ivy and Alcherion with a look of pure, comical, wide eyed surprise, but then she was on her back...with the pretty blue on top of her as the green rushed right over them to land at the feet of another girl.
"Dramatic babies, aren't ya?" The woman said with very little humor. "Sorry about this guys." She said to Icy and Alcherion, wiggling under the blue. "Can you get up please, dragon? Go find yours...I think there's something digging in my back." Then impression struck her and her eyes widened.
What the fuck? Was her only thought before the baby's voice entered her mind like silvery thread. It does not matter, I did not want her anyway. Saphor, beauty, will you be mine forever? For I will be yours, your Eldath. Now and always. For a moment, she didn't speak...when her voice came back to her, she almost whined. "Noooo. I don't want you to be mine. You've made a mistake baby. Get off!" She narrowed her eyes, nudging at Eldath. The blue looked stunned for a moment, but allowed himself to be pushed into the sand. I have? He asked plaintively, genuine confusion in his voice. If you aren't mine...then who is? And the dragon looked around, not making any move to get up while Saphor got off of the hot sand and turned to help up Ivy if she needed it and offer a hand to Alcherion if he wanted it.
The blonde brushed sand off of her robes while she snorted and responded to the hatchling. "I don't know who yours is, but it certainly isn't me." She glanced back. Eldath looked like someone had struck him. He was staring at her with wide eyed incredulity. Are you sure? Saphor sighed, rubbing the bridge of her nose. I thought you were mine...my beauty. "I'm not, okay? I don't know who it is though. Maybe you should go find them."
Eldath made no move to get up off the sand and Saphor wasn't in a hurry to look at Ivy. She hoped the girl wasn't angry at her for impressing...it isn't like she could have helped it. She was a candidate. She had a duty to stand. Didn't mean she actually wanted a dragon though.
Oliva beamed at the other girl. "Yeah. The babies are pretty strong. I haven't been hurt too badly at a hatching yet, but last time some people were actually mauled!" Her eyes were wide, and she was smiling...which didn't seem the appropriate response for the words she'd just said. "Just try to get out of their way before they get to you. If they want you, they'll come to you...they just suck at walking right now most of the time." Olivia hoped that the girl wouldn't take her advice the wrong way.
She was only trying to help.
Then she was distracted by the clusterfuck that was Nogoth and Eldath and her eyes shot up. They lingered on the blue for a tad longer than she'd wanted. "Oooo, look Cairenn. That's a pretty blue, isn't it? I bet he wouldn't run..." Well. That was said a little too soon because the blue crashed right into a group of candidates. "I guess he's still finding his feet too."
The green and blue both impressed and Liv stepped back to look at Cairenn. "Don't worry. There's still lots of eggs. I'm sure ours is there somewhere.
Even though she couldn't help but think that maybe she'd be left standing today too.
"It would hardly be my fault, now would it?" Dia countered Ka'aen's comment. "Nitrath can deal. I think that I wouldn't be worried about her if I fell." She blinked and let get gaze wander over the giant ass gold dragons on the sands. Well...maybe she would be worried about possibly being eaten...slightly. Half the time, she didn't worry about what was really important anyway, so why should she start now? " Not like I'd hurt the babies." She continued, softer. "Unless I fell on one or something...that would be all kinds of awkward."
She gave him a lopsided grin. "Rhiiseth is something else, isn't he?" Dia laughed. She was probably more in love with the blue than she had a right to be, but in all fairness, he was a pretty awesome dragon. "Though, I think bathing something that big would really suck. Sometimes I'm glad I never impressed. Dragons take a lot of work. Kia is all the work I need right now." Saying the dolphin's name was a pang in her heart and she sobered immediately, turning her gaze to the sands and not talking.
His words about what would have happened if Rhiiseth had been a green made her eyes widen. She looked back at him, a wicked little twinkle developing in her eyes. "Really?" She said in a somewhat incredulous tone. "I dunno. I think you'd be interesting as a greenrider." She teased him. "All those boys and men vying for your attention during one of your flights...wouldn't it be fun?" She was just having fun at his expense at this point. But she shrugged, leaning her head on his shoulder. Her voice was serious again.
"Rhiiseth was meant to be yours. Even if he had been a green, he would have found you anyway." Her brow bunched in thought. "Or would that be she? I dunno. He isn't a green though. He's prefect the way he is...like that blue over there." She said, distracted again, stretching up to look as the blue hatchling impressed.
