A Surprise for Aoreban

Artwork by Maralmok

"I have a surprise for you tonight Aoreban." The ancient gold said to his daughter with a gentle nuzzle to her side and a toothy grin. 

"What is it A'meo?" she asked, canting her head and lightly swishing her tail wondering to herself. A'meo loved his surprises and gifts for her. She reached up to touch the dragons breath pendant attached to her collar, the first gift he had given to her. 

“Come to the library when you are ready.” He chirped rushing off through the twist and turns of his cavernous lair. 

Embyr followed a short while later to find him laying on several pillows in the dimly lit chamber. Several sconces lined the walls and shelves each holding crystals giving of a pale blue light. He turned to face her with a warm smile as he patted the open space beside himself on the pillows. Embyr curled up beside him, their tails entwining. 

The gold rumbled and picked up something he had stashed beside him, A book. He cleared his throat and began. “When the war has lasted 20 years … the dragonets will come. When the land is soaked with blood and tears… the dragonets will come. Find the seawing egg of deepest blue. Wings of night will come to you. Find the largest egg on the mountain high will give to you the wings of sky. For wings of earth search through the mud for an egg the color of dragon blood. And hidden alone from the rival queens the wings of sand waits unseen. Of three queens blister blaze and burn two shall die and one shall learn if she bows to a fate that is stronger and higher shell have the powers of wings of fire. Five eggs to hatch on a brightest night, Five dragons born to end the fight Darkness will rise to bring the light. The dragonets are coming…”
