"Are there eggs anywhere else? Benden perhaps?" Elind said. "Or we could hide her somewhere!" she giggled. "Perhaps not!" she said looking at the serious look on Talana's face.
"Anyway I suppose her weyrmate would have something to say about that! Maes me feel a bit guilty for impressng Marnith- I mean I had a life of my own in the Smithcrafthall. I wasn't about to be flung into a life of endless nappies!"

"Now don't you say that. Never feel guilty for impressing your dragon!" Talana's expression grew even more stern.
"Sorry." Elind looked down.
Talana sighed and patted Elind on the shoulder. "It's okay....Come on lets go finish the work we were doing"
Elind smiled weakly and followed Talana.

Can I join? I would not mind being a green rider. I already have a name for me and my dragon picked out?

Shelly (A family name in this case it was either that or Sherubi) woke up to a fierce hunger. Great, she thought, Sarath is hungry again. How much do young dragons eat. And she will not even grow over twenty feet being a green dragon. Shelly fell out of her bed with her medium brown hair looking like something was sleeping in it. She ran down the stairs clumsily almost falling because of how heavy Sarath was. When she found a decent young buck for Sarath to eat she had a hard time killing it with her belt knife. She knew that she had to be strong in order to live through fighting thread and just to feed her dragon. She then fed and oiled Sarath before going to bed next to her dragon on the Sands. Man that dragon was warmer than the best bed furs.

Talana waited as the girl's eyes cleared from thier sleepiness. "B'ruch needs you out on the bowl." Talana said with a smile. Everyone was fond of the old, gruff weyrlingmaster, eventhough he was stern and slow to praise. Shelly rose, stretching. Still not awake, she murmured, "hmmm..."
Shelly, Makuth saya for you to come NOW. His rider is impatient.
Tell Makuth I''m coming. Are you comeing too?
Why wouldn't I? asked Sarath, her green eyes slowly whirling.
Elnid chucked as she saw the look in her eyes that she knew ment Shelly was speaking with Sarath.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

G'ten watched as the young green rider carried her dragon across the bowl.
"Young Shelly's late. Its strange seeing female green riders again. Old F'rin would never allow them on the grounds and it took K'trel a while to reintroduce them. Old D'sum liked them though. You don't remember D'Sum, do you?" He left the weyr entrance and walked through to the sleeping room where his weyrmate R'sim lay.
"No, he went between for the last time two years before I was searched." he sighed.
"A nice man was D'sum, F'rin too, even if he did become a little bit of an old woman later on in life." G'ten picked up a small bottle from the table. "Time for your medicine."
He poured the liquid into a glass and watched until R'sim was asleep before joining his dragon on the ledge.
Blue Camreth looked at his rider with eyes that slowly whirled with the colours of sadness and worry. "Werrith is worried about her rider." he said woefully."
"So am I dear heart, so am I." G'ten replied scratching his dragon's scarred and greying muzzle. He looked into the weyr where the shrunken rider lay, his old green watching him, most of the colour gone from her hide. "So am I."

"Talana?" Elind said. "What can we do about Kaylisha?" should we ask Kelaina and R'del, or what?" she looked faintly annoyed. "Why does she keep asking us? They're the right ones to see! I mean Marnies got ages until she rises! Shes less than a year and a half old!" Elind wrinkled her nose. "Talking of Marnie, can I go between yet?"

Talana stopped and turned to the girl. "Why do you keep asking me all these questions? But," Talana sighed. "We should send her to R'del or Kelaina next time she askes us anything answer to first and second question. I don't know why she keeps asking us and I don't know. Any more questions?"
"No" Elind said.
"Good now we've got things to do" Talana turned and continued to walk.

"Is he asleep? G'ten asked his dragon.
"He sleeps. So does Werrith."
"Do you need to hunt Dear Heart?"
"Not I, Werrith does, but she won't."
"Shall we hunt for her."
"She wakes. She says no. She will not eat when her dragon is so ill."
"That's not good. I'm going to talk to Wingleader K'trel. Then I ought to eat. I can't fade away, for your sake, however much I'd like to some days!"
"Your bone stiffness?"
"No dear Heart, I can cope that, it's just life."
"Don't be sad. I am with you."
"I know Dear Heart, I know. And I'll always be here for you." with that G'ten patted his dragon's muzzle and went off to find K'trel.

"It's not fair!" Elind said to her dragon that evening as they curled up in their weyr. "No-one listens, and no-one lets me help!" She stroked Marnith's neck. "Back in the crafthall they TOLD me to ask questions, but here everyone's too busy, too disinterested, too BORING to listen."
"They're very busy at the moment."
"They're ALWAYS too busy, but they won't let me help!"
"They will when they think you're ready!"
"WHEN is always tomorrow, never today!" she walked to the ledge.
"It will be soon! You're nearly healed." Marnith slithered to join her.
"I know, I know."
"Quiet!"
"Why?"
"Can't you hear it?"
"What?"
"Someone's crying!"
Elind strained to listen. Just below her she could hear quiet sobs as someone trudged by below.

"You're right." Elind whispered. "Let's find out who it is."
That's snooping!
"I know but maybe we can help, but we have to be quiet."
Elind and Marnith slowly made their way to the lower ledge and were surprise by who they say sobbing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Okay so someone besides Edith or me tell who Elind and Marnith saw.

"Why me?" Young yourneyman Harper Emund slowly trudges down the path below the weyer. His usual twinkling green eyes was overflowing with tears while soft sobs rakes his body. "I better get a grip on myself before someone sees me. But why, why did the Masterharper had to send me here!!"

His hands reaches for his gitar slung accross his back. He starts to pluck a mornfull tune while he walks down to the great hall.

Emund turns around and gazes at Elind "Greetings Elind, I ... I just heard unexpected news con...concering my family" His fingers sound a discord on the gitar. "I did not mean to dis...disturb you and Marnith" His eye's suddenly widens as he stares up the path. "No disrespect Elind, Marnith but I have to go" Suddenly he bows, turns and hasten down the path.

"Marnith someting wrong, we must try and help"
"Yes I agree"
Then they hear voices of two riders coming down the path
"I don't know G'rit. The family is rather shocked. The youngun who died was the last male heir. The harper hall is currenltly looking at the records to see if there's a male somewhere"
"O come on C'per I know there's a younger lad. Saw him myself when he was six or so. That makes him what 23 now?
"Ay, that is so but the laddie missing. Went riding out alone one day and never came back. We were even on the search party. You're memory is slipping old man"
"Slipping? Says who? Not if I can remerber the laddies remarkablel green eyes! Now if I can only remember his name."
C'per slabs G'rit on his back while he laughts "Well we'll leave that problem to the Harpers. One we can mull over what can we do about Kaylisha's problem? If her ..."
Their voices fades as they enter the hall.

"What's that about Marnie?" Elind said, scratching her dragon's muzzle.
"How should I know?"
"Bespeak their dragons!"
"They won't tell me."
Well I'm going to follow them to see what's up. There's too many strange things going on here for my liking! First Emund and then G'rit..."

The girl crept along the corridors until she reached an area inhabited mainly by blue or green riders. There was no sign of G'rit or Emund and she wandered along the corridors until she realised that she was lost!
"Shards Marnie! I've never been here before!"
"Where?"
I don't know! Somewhere behind some of the weyrs!"
"Retrace your steps!"
"I can't find my steps!"
"Shall I bespeak someone?"
"No... yes... hang on Marnie!" Elind sounded panicky. "There's someone here!"

################################################

I'm gonna be cheeky and put a bit more down.

G'ten hadn't been to his hideout for years. Dust lay in a thick layer on the little bits and pieces he had hidden there in his youth. He shook out an old sleeping rug and sat down. He hadn't been here for years, not since the old queen, not the last one, but the one before that had gone between. It had been his hiding place when he had been a weyrling and he and Camreth had found it while escaping from a bullying comrade.
There were footsteps down the corridor and he saw young Elind creeping along in the dark. What on Pern was that young dim-glow doing now?
He walked up to her.
"Elind? What are you doing here?"

"I... I... I was," Elind sighed. "I was following G'rit and Emund but I lost then and I had never been to this part of the Weyr before so now I'm lost."
G'ten chuckled. "You are to nosy for your own good."
Elind cocked her head to one side. "If you don't mind me asking, what are you doing here?"
"Yes, well com'on" He walked back to the rug he'd liad down and gestured for her to sit next to him. "I used to come back here all the time when I was young, me and Camreth. But I haven't been down here for many turns and Camreth is to big to fit in here any more."
G'ten explained why he'd come here and showed her some of the things he'd stored. He finished up yet another story nad showed her one more item, when she spoke.
"Wow! This is all interest, but could you lead me out of here? Talana is going to kill me I was supposed to help her with something but well, I got lost."
G'ten chuckled and stood up. He extended one hand out to help her up. They brushed theirselves off and G'ten picked up the rug. They didn't say much as G'ten led her back to the part of the Weyr she knew but would chat every now and then.
Elind didn't know how she had gotten so far. She guessed that consintrating on G'rit and Emund had her not realizing how far she'd gone or that she was lost until she'd lost sight of them.
"Elind! Elind!" She heard her name called as she enters a known part of the Weyr. "Elind!" The voice was Talana's
"I'm here Talana." She responded.
"Elind, where have you been all day?"
"With G'ten."
"Oh, well hello G'ten I didn't even see you there."
"G'day Talana. Well I must be off, have to feed Camreth." He smiled as walked away.
Talana sighed and glanced back at Elind. "Well come let be off."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I don't know what it is but I've just been in a writing mood. I got in a really good chap for my Pern/Inuyasha(japanese anime) story and am working on one for my Inuyasha/Pirate story. If you know what Inuyasha is and would like to read one of the stories they are located at fafiction.net under the user name ToDifferentToBeReal and called Wrong Turn Down the Well the other is The Pirate's Life. Part of it is on Quizilla.com and I had it on annemccafferyfans.com but it out, and I think some already know that. Well, bye.

Oh well lets write you some more!
thought up a totally awful! character t'other night!

#############################################

"So then missie what were you really up to?" Talana stopped Elind as soon as G'ten was out of sight.
"N-nothing!" she said hopefully.
"N-nothing indeed! Come on... oh shards!" she ended in a groan.
"Good evening ladies!" D'ring, bronze Sedenth's rider nodded his head at them. "May I be of assistance?" he said in a sickenly sweet tone. He was dressed for riding in his unorthodox black wherhide and lounged against the wall glistening from his slicked back black hair to his highly polished black boots.
"No Wing-leader" Talana said politely. "We were just talking."
"I'll wish you good evening then." he swept off.
"Parnreth says that her rider does not like Sedenth's." Marnith said
"I don't either." Elind replied
"Sedenth is sure that he'll catch a queen, but we do not like him."
"Not suprised! Shards!"
"What?"
"Talana looks real annoyed! I can't really ask her about anything now!"
"Why not? You need to know, you are a gold rider! You should be told!"
Elind sounded suprised at the force behind her dragon's comments, oh well... "Talana?"

"Look! Please could someone tell me what's going on! Everyone else knows but when I ask they either shut up or tell me it doesn't matter! It matters to them, so why can't I know? No one seems to remember that I'm a gold rider too!"

"She's nearly fully grown now!" Elind said beligerently.
"I know, we know. Especially with Kaylisha as she is, perhaps I should tellyou something."

Talana sighed. "We'd better go to my weyr, this isn't common knowledge."

Sitting in Talana's weyr with a mug of klah Elind was looking around her with curiosity. She had never been in the older rider's weyr before and she was quite surprised at what she found.
Elind would have been the first to admit that her weyr tended to be untidy, if Marnith hadn't already pointed this out! She tended to collect things at random, at the moment she was wondering why she'd ever brought a blue stuffed weyr-hide firelizard. Talana on the other hand was so neat! Interesting but neat! Elind found herself looking with interest at a sketching of a young girl and her dragon attached to the wall above Parneth's dragon, so much so that she nearly missed what Talana said.

Across the Weyr, a large brown dragon laid curled up on his stone couch, spicy draconic pervading the area. His rider, J'rade, scratched Kidrith's eye ridge, and the big brown whuffed softly.

That Fall the other day was too straining on you. How is the laceration healing?, Kidrith asked his rider.

J'rade frowned, then replied, It could be better. My shoulder's a bit sore still, but Giri says it'll heal.

Kidrith's tone was amused. Sharmilth says that Giri's wiped out from Fall, too. I'm glad I flew her last time, J'rade. Giri and Sharmilth are good for us.

J'rade's eyes twinkled. His greenrider weyrmate, Giri, was a tiny, sensible woman whose personality matched her dragon's exactly. Kidrith opened one eye to observe his rider, then commented, Shelly comes. Something about numbweed.

That's because you're wonderful and smart, and because, although monkeys may rule, it takes a woman to know what the heck is happening around the place.
