"Pascale! PASCALE! COME QUICK!"

Andrick's panicked voice broke through. He ran through the halls, clutching the newborn to his chest; its head lolled uselessly, limp as a doll.

"PASCALE! Something awful has happened!"

It took some time for the skydancer to make sense of the guardian's blubbering,
but he understood the basics of the scenario quite well enough. One of the hatchlings was dead, and Andrick was beside himself with grief.

So beside himself, it seemed, that he could not make out the livid bruise, a dent the size and shape of a dragon's talon where its throat had been crushed.

WHOOPS hand slipped.

Isolde's impatience seems to have sealed her fate. She may have THOUGHT she could save time by pretending one of the hatchlings was stillborn, but Pascale saw right through it.

The female survives (I flipped a coin) to become the new heir by default. As punishment for not allowing the hatchlings to fight in the coliseum for the title, Isolde has been sentenced to death. Andrick will be a mess, no doubt.

Cheating?

Of course it's cheating. But what do you expect when all of my Legacy dragons are criminals?

He still was not quite sure about the details, but it seemed as though he was part of something very, very dangerous. Also, kids were involved, in a way that made him uneasy. Bhaskar had, in his time, sired a great many children. And though he hadn't exactly kept up with the kids after they'd hatched, he was opposed to the idea of terrible things happening to them. Which is why he went looking for the two youngest dragons in their quarters. "Hey! Rivoltante! Bula! That's your names, right?" The pearlcatcher and guardian looked up from their respective pursuits; Rivo was reading, and Bula was carefully scouring the room they were in for secret passageways, which seemed more likely than not to be there somewhere. "I have a bad feeling that the other dragons will do something terrible to you," Bhaskar stated, baldly. "You should come with me, and we can all train to get stronger. In case they come after us all at once." He smiled what he hoped was a very compelling and winning smile. The younger dragons eyed him suspiciously but agreed. It would just be killing a few overgrown bugs and mice; what danger could there be?

Bhaskar was quite concerned about what he had stumbled into.

He still was not quite sure about the details, but it seemed as though he was part of something very, very dangerous. Also, kids were involved, in a way that made him uneasy. Bhaskar had, in his time, sired a great many children. And though he hadn't exactly kept up with the kids after they'd hatched, he was opposed to the idea of terrible things happening to them.

Which is why he went looking for the two youngest dragons in their quarters.

"Hey! Rivoltante! Bula! That's your names, right?"

The pearlcatcher and guardian looked up from their respective pursuits; Rivo was reading, and Bula was carefully scouring the room they were in for secret passageways, which seemed more likely than not to be there somewhere.

"I have a bad feeling that the other dragons will do something terrible to you," Bhaskar stated, baldly. "You should come with me, and we can all train to get stronger. In case they come after us all at once."

He smiled what he hoped was a very compelling and winning smile.

The younger dragons eyed him suspiciously but agreed. It would just be killing a few overgrown bugs and mice; what danger could there be?
