She glanced at the flames that hung in the air around her and turned the light drizzle into clouds of steam before it could dampen her fur. With a twist of her head, she directed the flames to better shelter her head and face from the rain, allowing her to see a little more clearly. She spent a few moments picking up each of the items, until finally she came to the marble bust of the Lightweaver. She lifted it with surprising ease - but when she upended the whole thing, it turned out not to be made of marble at all! It was a wooden framework with a thin, paper-like substance over the top that only appeared like marble. The whole thing was actually hollow. Sigyn frowned for a moment, turning it over in her paws - and then she saw the Sacridite and the purpose of the thing fell into place. "Ah, I see," she murmured as she picked up the softly glowing Sacridite and reached into the bust with it, feeling around inside with an expression of intense concentration. Within the bust, her questing claws found a little cradle made to hold the shard. With a decisive nod, she placed the Sacridite into it, and then turned the statue back the right way up and placed it down. "There: now you see that Lightweaver has started to glow because of the Sacridite inside the statue?" she said with a smile. The Lightweaver statue was indeed glowing with a soft and gentle light that permeated through the papery sides of the bust. Her eyes shone particularly brightly, but they had a kindly expression. "This is a night-light for hatchlings!" Sigyn explained. "Their wishes and dreams keep the Sacridite's glow constant all through the night. It is quite a lovely idea, actually - and I'm sure it makes the little ones feel safe, knowing that they have Lightweaver watching over them. I wonder how they made the material covering the bust look so much like marble?"

"But wait!" she calls loud
In your mind casting doubt
As she pulls up a chest
Shining inside and out

A blanket to cover
Those terrible things
Pushing them all aside
And hiding them with her wings

"You have completed this task
Though done without glee
Now I find it my turn
To give you something for free."


But wait--what's this?

'A marble bust,
brave and bold,
was worshiped as sacred
in days of old.

And at its base was a glittering jewel
Of a fallen hero
Whose deeds where so cool!

And as dragons prayed to be just like him
In crept the sacridite to cover the gem

So the bust was then covered in a glittering shell
And people forgot the stories as the elders fell

Until it was one day uncovered with a crash! and a bang!
The hatchling's glasses were lost with a crunch! and a clang!
For he had found the hero's gem
And the pedestal that held it toppled on its rim
A harrowing moment passed until the wind grew slack
And the bust fell to settle in the hatchling's snack.'
