Right after King Azazel heard the long awaited reports from Leonard, Mullin, Pruflas, and Pyro. He asks Appolyn to do something for him.
“Appolyn, it is time for a major meeting. I want all of the leaders here now.”
“Yes, my King.” Appolyn then sends out a telepathic call to all of the demon angel leaders.
They quickly arrive on Hell World. A thousand leaders show up very quickly. When they see the condition of their King and the others there, they have a look of anger and distress on their faces. Especially when they see, their King’s throne is obliterated.
“I know. Your first question is what happened here? I’ll tell you what happened!! Leonard, Mullin, Pruflas and Pyro were found and defeated on their worlds they tried to conquer and destroy. They had an encounter with the Richard Moore’s in the Anti-verse and the Earth where I was sentenced to the first time.”
They all quickly grumble in hatred among themselves.
“I know, it seems our best effort to kill off the Omega Unicorns in the nine multi-verses is all for naught. Now this is my new order. Well, actually it is a renewal. I want every single world that has dragons, destroyed!! Why, do you ask?”
They all nod their heads up and down. They refuse to answer his questions, lest they might incur his wrath again.
“That way, we won’t be facing them when we arrive on the Earth where I was sent to the first time. I want all of the dragon worlds destroyed!!! Do I make myself clear?!!!”
“If you fail in your mission, I still want to know what happened!!!”
“My King. I have a question.”
“What is it, Pruflas?”
“In the Monster Verse there is a world that has Godzilla, Mothra, and a host of other monsters. Do you want us to destroy that world? I mean, can’t we bend their minds to do our bidding?”
“Hmm . . . That’s a good question. I know some of them don’t like it, but we might be able to deal with one or two of them. Find the one with the weakest mind defense.”
“It will be done, my King.”
“Isn’t there another dragon world?”
A millipede-faced demon speaks up, “There is my King. It is the Avatar World. However, as far as we know, there are only two dragons left on that world.”
“I know which ones you’re talking about. They are tied to that world through the people. They are no threat to me. But, if they do become a problem, I must be told!”
“Yes, my King!!”
“What is the current situation on the Avatar World?”
“We were able to convince the normal people to harbor jealousy against the element benders. It should be well established before the next Avatar is born. It will build into the greatest civil war on their world.”
“That’s good. Now, how many worlds are left with unicorns?”
“That would be Earth in the Magic Verse and Twainor, my King.”
“Hmm . . . that’s good. My only question is this. Why did the Creator, curse his name, have a bunch of Richard Moore’s get the title of Omega Unicorn Dragon? I mean, there are no unicorns or dragons found on those worlds. How did he do it?”
They all look at each other quickly. They shake their heads from side to side, indicating they don’t know.
“My King, didn’t we have at one time instant communication?”
“We did Pyro, but that was before I led my rebellion against the Cursed One. Now we have to rely on Appolyn’s telepathic mind. I want to thank you all in joining with me on this great endeavor. We will win when we have conquered my first prison on Earth and split asunder his Creation. Now, what is the latest news concerning Never Land?”
“We were able to have the Kree send the Brak-vosh to destroy Never Land, my King. When we checked up on them, we found the two leading ships in an unusual condition.”
“What kind of condition?”
“We found the men space sick and the smell of flowers upon them. It seems they are allergic to flowers. Their leader told us four men boarded the ship in a blink of an eye. Captain Hook took his gold bar back and rejected their offer. Then he sent his lone sea ship into space. They said the ship had a glittering look to it. The sea ship was able to send cannon balls into their ships without making any holes in the hulls.”
“Grrr . . . they use pixie dust for their magic. Did you get any images from them?”
“I did, my King.” He takes a crystal out from his pocket. Quickly a replay of the image on the bridge appears.
“Grrrr . . . the Omega Unicorn arrived as well. This is not good news. What happened next?”
“Just before they left, he shook the commander’s hand. Now the Brak-vosh refuses to pillage any new worlds. They claim that they can hear the Creator’s voice now.”
“Again it is with that blasted handshake!! If I ever shake Richard’s hand, it will be the last time he will do that!!!”
They all chuckle and laugh at King Azazel’s joke. “Heh, heh, heh, heh, . . . . !!!”
“So, what is the Kree going to do next?”
“They told me they will investigate who started this handshake. I gave them clues to find Earth and a certain man named Richard Moore.”
“Now that is some great news. I know the Kree will be very stubborn about the investigation. This should be a great fight between them, with the Kree winning handily. What about Kyto the Dragon?”
“He is still chained up on Never Land, my King. The fairies have proven to be very resourceful.”
“Okay, we’ll keep him there for the time being. He will be the perfect tool to destroy Never Land when the time is right. As long as he thinks Smaug is still alive, he will stay calm. If he learns Smaug is dead, then we’ll use him to destroy Never Land. Melkor programmed them to be killers.”
“Yes, my King.”
“Okay, right now, I need a throne rebuilt.”
Everyone smiles and shouts out in a loud voice, “Yes, my King!!”
Everyone lends a hand in building the throne. This time they made sure it is made out of adamantium. King Azazel sits in his new metal-sculpted throne and looks down at his leaders. The throne is adorned with goat horns and skulls.
“How many worlds have dragons left?”
“There is Pern. Despite our best efforts, the Red Star has not wiped them out. The dragons can teleport out of the way. Also, the people were able to divert the Red Star into a new orbit so it won’t send the Thread to their surface.”
“All right, then send the Oort cloud around Rukbat to finally destroy it!! Murmur and Samael, I am trusting you get it done right this time.”
Murmur and Samael shout out together, “Yes, my King!!”
Murmur and Samael quickly fly away to Pern with their legions. “EEEEEEeeeeee . . . !!!”
“Are there any dragons on Earth in the Magic Verse?”
“There are none that we know about, my King. Unless they are well hidden.”
“Are their any other dragons left in the multi-verses?”
“There are the nine dragon spirits in China on Earth.”
“I remember those nine brothers. I am surprised they are still lingering around. They have no power. They are just dust in the wind to me.”
“There are the Romanian Dragons. I have word from the Eleven that they are almost through the magical barrier. When they get through, they will unleash the bio-toxin to wipe them out. They will be sending an air and ground attack from the Romania military. There is no way Eingana can save them now. It takes a drop of her blood to cure them. Eingana is on Twainor.”
“That is good news to hear.”
“We know there are dragons somewhere in the British Isles, my King. We have been unable to find them. We can’t enter the Forbidden Forest. Ever since
Voldemort was defeated, we have had no access to it.”
“Hmmm . . . I am expecting Voldemort’s ashes to show up here. I’ll deal with him when he gets here. Are we sure there are no other dragons on Earth where I was sent to in the beginning?”
“There are none, my King. We were surprised the Creator sent a meteor to the Northern Europe Ice Shelf. Then the Great Flood happened for Europe and the Mediterranean Sea. It wiped out the Nefelim and drowned the dragons there. Also, the dragon in Central America has not been seen for thousands of years. All that is left is a memorial to the feathered dragon. There are no dragons in North America. The only thing we found is the Serpent Mound in Ohio. We couldn’t find any dragons in South America. However, we are successful in getting the people to rip up the Amazon Forest for their wealth. We figure in about five hundred years, the first stages of desert expansion will be well established. Once that starts, it will become another Sahara Desert.”
“That’s very good. Does everyone understand that?”
They all shout out loud, “Yes, my King!!!”
“All right, what is the latest news with the Siths?”
“When Sith Knight Kalbek came back from following Luke Skywalker, he confronted the Sith Lords about the death of his parents. He accused them of killing his parents and forcing him to the Dark Side. They immediately felt a small spark of light inside him. They quickly cut him in two. But, when they lifted his robe, there was no body to be found.”
“Grrr. . . . where did Kalbek go to follow Luke?”
“They checked the flight records. Luke led him to Twainor.”
King Azazel smiles, “That’s good. Now they know where to go to establish their new empire.”
“Yes, my King.”
“All right now, back to your posts. Find a way to bring darkness to all of the worlds you encounter! Even if you are to persuade them to cut down their trees!”
“Yes, King Azazel!!!”
They all scream, “EEEEEEEeeeeee . . . !!!” They fly away to their assigned worlds and sectors. Appolyn stays behind.
“Appolyn, I have an important task for you.”
“Yes, my King.”
“Find Talpa. I know he is licking his wounds from his last encounter with the Ronin Warriors. His new task is to go to Monster World where Pruflas will be. There he will find King Ghidorah entombed on an island. He will force his will and mind upon King Ghidorah’s three minds. Once he has done that, then he will break him out of his prison. He will come here with King Ghidorah to get him ready for the Ultimate Last Battle.”
“Yes, my King. What about the Ronin Warriors?”
“Let them have their rest. They will become soft when there is no evil to conquer. Don’t worry. I have plans to bring the greatest serpents to be part of the assault force for Earth.”
“Yes, my King.”
They both laugh an evil laugh together, “hah, hah, hah, . . . “
Then Appolyn flies away to find Talpa. “EEEEEEeeeee . . . !!”
“Oh, I will have my revenge upon the people of Earth. Now I need to find Leviathan, Jormungandr and Kraken. I know Kraken is in the underworld. It is just a matter of getting him released through Hades. But to get to Hades, I need to find Persephone. And Loki is in my pocket!! I love it when a plan comes together!!! Hah, hah, hah, hah . . . !!”
The swirling masses of demons flying about the throne squeal in laughter, “EEEEeeee . . . hah, hah, hah . . . EEEEEeeee. . . . hah, hah, hah, . . . .!!!”
They all look dumbfounded. They can’t believe what they are hearing. However, Brianna and I have big smiles on our faces.
“What?! How did you know what to put in the message?”
“My guess is through the Emissaries. They have star ships that can travel faster than the speed of light. Also, they can be anywhere and at any given time. Like I was told, there is a time, distance and space problem. That is especially true with worm holes. The fabric of time gets easily distorted from one end to the other end of the tube. You could jump into the future or in the past at any given moment.”
The Star Smith looks at me thoughtfully. “He does have a point, Jaxom. I have been scouring the data records on AIVAS for anything like that. I did find one record from the survey group. It states there is a time problem between Rukbat and Eridanni. It is probably referring to the worm hole he is talking about.”
“Hmm . . . Okay . . . What is the next message you left for yourself, Richard?”
“Computer, open the next message.”
“Accessing, data core . . . Opening the second one.”
If Jaxom and the Star Smiths still don’t believe you, show them some of the people and animals you have met.
“Well, do you still have any doubts?”
“You’re kidding me? You wrote that because of what you just told us?”
“I have met people who never heard of the Creator. Or if they did, they are very mad at him for making their life miserable. Actually, we make our own misery. That is what makes us human. We are not perfect. Yes, there are times when the Creator will intervene to preserve life. He has every intention of doing that for Pern because of Azazel. I have never met Azazel. But I have met some of the Emissaries.”
I quickly move my right hand and the image of an Emissary appears above the palm my hand. He appears radiant and has an inner glow that can’t be missed.
“I have seen them in my dreams, Richard. I thought they were imaginations of my mind running wild.”
“Was there another time you could have possibly seen them?”
“Yes, when I went ‘in between’ with Ruth to save Pern from the Red Star. Ruth and I may have seen them briefly as faint light images.”
“They were probably guarding and guiding you both. They knew it was important to redirect the orbit of the Red Star. Now here are some of the people and animals I have met.”
I quickly move my hands to display the people that I have met. Jaxom and the Star Smith are amazed at the diversity of life.
Then the two men get really quiet. They look at each other.and nod their heads up and down.
“He is right, Jaxom. I can faintly hear another voice in my head. The voice is telling me Richard is telling the truth. He is telling me he is the Creator.”
“I agree. I can faintly hear his voice in my head. The voice is telling me that we must be ready for tomorrow. The people must be kept calm while the miracle takes place from the Creator.”
“I do remember seeing a star field projection from the Emissaries once. I think it will help you with your star charts.”
“If you can do that, that would be greatly appreciated. I can get AIVAS to scan it for future reference.”
I concentrate on the star field I saw, before I became the Omega Unicorn for the first time. As soon as I get the image in my mind, I move my hand again. The star field quickly appears above my hand. I use both of my hands to make the image bigger. I keep the stars high lighted of the Local Group.
“Computer, scan star field. I presume those high lighted stars are the home worlds within the Local Group?”
“AIVAS have scanned the star field. Storing it in memory. Adding to existing information. . . . Processing . . . . Found location of stable worm hole . . . displaying worm hole tube.”
Then a thin purple line is drawn near the Eridanni star system to Rukbat. The line goes around several nebula and stars.
“Oh my Creator. It is a direct path between the two systems.”
“Yes, it is. AIVAS, is there a spectrum shift between the two images?”
“Processing . . . found spectrum shift between the two multi-verses. Rukbat is a blue Class B star in Richard’s multi-verse. Rukbat is a yellow Class G star in the Magic Verse.”
“Well, that confirms it. We are in another multi-verse. Now that is settled, we must make sure everything is secured in the caves. It is the only place that will be safe for us when the miracle takes place.”
“I agree, Jaxom. Richard, when the magical field gets erected around us, will there be air to breathe?”
“There will be air to breathe. I have done it myself many times. What will happen is this. We will disappear in a blink of an eye. Then you will be in the magical field. However, once one leaves the magical field or makes a disconnection from it, you will then appear in the existing realm.”
“I thought so. Hopefully the rest of the wildlife will stay put while we travel through space.”
“I think this is where I can be of use. Once our unicorn images appear, you should see a reaction from the wildlife. Most of the times, they will come near to me. They will sound out their calls in giving thanks there are unicorns once more.”
“If that happens, we will all give thanks to the Creator.”
“Then I will tell them in their minds to seek refuge in the caves. The sea life is naturally protected in the oceans. Once the transportation is finished, they will come out and live their lives. AIVAS, are there any teachings about the Creator in the data core?”
“Processing . . . processing . . . Found third file. It can now be opened by any Master Harper when they are ready to learn and teach about the Creator. The file contains multiple sub-files on various subjects from birth to death. The total volume of the file is one terabyte.”
“There is one terabyte of information about the Creator? What will it contain, Richard?”
“I think it will contain many entries about the Creator viewed upon Earth. I know of several points of views from many different countries. AIVAS, are there any files concerning the different types of religion? The time frame is 2100.”
“Processing . . . .processing . . . Found historical data. Comparing with current events before 2100. There has now been an update with the Middle-Eastern Desert Laws. The Desert Laws were renounced and rejected. For the simple reason of discrimination against the female gender, the inbetween gender and for the blood oaths of revenge. There are many more examples, but that would take many days of teaching.”
“Is there a data reader here? I have a disk in my satchel. It contains the next generation for the 3D-Server.”
“Yes, there is a reader here. It is in this console built into the table.” The Star Smith pushes a button on the table. A small panel opens up.
I take out my data disk from my satchel. I hand it to the Star Smith. He slides it into the slot. The disk gets drawn in.
“Processing data disk . . . Found file . . . Displaying contents.”
Then an image of the next generation 3D-Server is rendered above the table.
“AIVAS, is this drawing a match with the CPU core on file?”
“That is affirmative, Richard. This is an exact copy of the CPU core.”
“Copy it as an additional backup.”
“Copying next generation 3D-Server. Data is stored as second back up to the first copy.”
“Well, this has proven to be an exceptional meeting, Jaxom. Now we need to get ready for tomorrow.” The Star Smith ejects the data disk and hands it back to me. I put the disk back into the case and put it back in my satchel.
“Yes, anything can happen tomorrow. Oh, here is one more proof that I’m telling the truth.” I stand up and thrust my hands out. Then twelve unicorn images come out of me. The fairies all change from butterfly to fairies in little flashes of light. Croin comes out of me and hovers above me. He resizes himself to fit in the room.
Jaxom and Brianna are smiling widely.
“Oh my Creator. He is telling the truth, Jaxom.”
“I know, that is the beauty of it all. He has been chosen to represent the animals and for Earth to be restored. It is going take time for him to accomplish it all.”
Croin returns back into me. My fairies quickly fly back into our coat pockets.
We all get ready to leave the AIVAS building. The Star Smith leads the way. The door slides open. Air gushes out through the opening. The Star Smith stays behind as the rest of us walks into the cave. The door closes once we are through. We exit the cave until we find Ruth and the other dragon. The dragons see us once we are clear of the cave.
“How did it go, Jaxom?”
“A lot happened, Ruth. We have some planning to do today.”
“I sense from you that we will see a miracle tomorrow.”
“Yes, we will. Right now, we need to get back to the Hold where Sharra is for our noon meal. Then all of us will be in deep discussion about what could happen tomorrow.”
We get on the backs of the dragons. They quickly teleport back to the Southern Hold. We dismount from the dragons and walk to the Castle. The gates open up to allow us in. Jaxom leads us into the castle. We get greeted by the Castle Warder.
“Welcome back, everyone. You’re just in time for the noon meal. Ruth, you know where to go for your meal.”
“Thank you. We’ll fly over to the cattle yards.”
Ruth and the bronze dragon take off and fly over to the cattle yards for their noon meal.
The rest of us walk inside. We get escorted by the Castle Warder to our rooms. Once the door is opened, we walk inside and put our satchels on the bed. I take the fairies food satchel with me.
We enter a larger dining room that is more formal than the one I saw in Ruatha Hold.
“Father, we will need to set two extra plates for Richard.”
“Come on out my fairies. Show yourselves.”
They fly out of our coat pockets and fly around to check everyone out. Then they hover between Brianna and me.
“We like them father, mother, Omega. They have good hearts and want to do what is right.”
“That’s good, Esmeralda. We like them too.”
Everyone giggles and laughs from the fairies assessment of everyone. Two more plates are brought out and placed near our table setting. I put their satchel on the table. They open the bag to retrieve what they want to eat. They also pour themselves cups of water and honey mixed together.
We all take our places before the table. The servers come out with the first course. It is a salad of greens and cold vegetables. We talk while we eat the noon meal.
“So, I can tell from your face, Jaxom. There are several things going through your mind.”
“We won’t keep it from you, mother. But we need to talk it out with the dragons as well after the noon meal. Richard is going to be the key for what will happen tomorrow.”
“Hmm . . . not even a hint?”
“We could tell you now, but you would become a worried mother. You would be worrying about everything. Then you will forget to eat the noon meal.” Then Jaxom gives a big smile.
Everyone laughs and giggles, including mother. “All right, all right. I’ll put my worrying off until the meeting.”
According to my time estimate, about ten minutes later. My fairies are noticed for how much they are eating.
“How much do they eat, Richard?”
“They are high burners of energy, Sharra. When they are in butterfly mode, they drink a lot of flower nectar. They can fly very far before needing another feeding. But in fairy mode, they eat a combination of nuts, seeds and honey-water or fruit juices.”
“That’s amazing. What is even more amazing are their clothes matching the colors in their wings. They do have an eye for fashion. Did they make the clothes themselves?”
“Yes, Sharra. They have the hands to do anything. They don’t use needles like we have. They use very thin thorns for needles.”
“Now that I think about it. They would have to use tools for their size. Can they defend themselves if attacked by birds?”
“Oh yes, they can defend themselves. They can even mount an attack if they want to. They will be progressing in the martial arts like I am doing.”
Jaxom speaks up, “Then we better be careful at the meeting tomorrow, Richard.”
“I am going to have my fairies to act as look outs for any unusual movements. They will be in butterfly mode.”
“Hmm . . . that’s a good idea, Richard.”
We proceed to finish off the noon meal in another fifteen minutes or so. My fairies, Brianna and I give thanks to the Creator in our minds. We get up from the table and follow our hosts to the main courtyard area. There we find about a dozen dragons gathered together.
“From what we discovered this morning, there will be a miraculous event tomorrow. Hopefully, everything will go as planned tomorrow. But we surmise several problems. When Ruth came back from High Reaches Hold, he sensed a problem there. We think there will be an assassination attempt on my life. Why?”
“I think there is a good reason, Jaxom. You are still considered a thorn in their side.”
“That is very true. I was able to bring success to Ruatha Hold after it was passed to me from my mother, Lessa. Now, Richard here will provide cover with his fairies to be on the look out for any sudden movements.”
“What can they do?”
I look to Tiger. “Tiger, it is time for a demonstration with some wind and water.”
“I agree, father.” Tiger turns to the other fairies. “Let’s do some target practice, brothers and sisters.”
They quickly get into formation. They quickly send wing slashes at several leaves on several trees from different distances.
The people quickly realize the accuracy of the wing slashes when they see little x’s on the leaves.
Then they create several water balls from the moisture in the air. They throw the water balls at each other and catch them without touching the water balls.
“Oooh . . . That is great!”
Then they turn the water balls into ice balls and use a mini-tornado to send it flying toward a tree trunk. The ice balls smash against the tree trunk and the ice balls shatter into smaller pieces.
Everyone gives a clap and praise for the demonstration they have seen.
The fairies then fly over to Brianna and me to rest and catch their breath.
“Well, if they can do that. We know that Richard will be just as powerful.”
“So, what is going to happen tomorrow?”
“The demon angels are going to send the Oort cloud around our system toward us. They want to destroy Pern, because the dragons are a threat to them.”
“Who or what are these demon angels?”
I step forward. “Their leader is Azazel. He was one of the Arch-Angels under the Creator. Probably millions of years ago, he led a rebellion against the Creator and the rest of heaven. He was supposed to receive the praise from the angels and direct it toward the Creator. However, he had other ideas about it. He felt he should receive all of the praise himself. The Creator then sent Azazel to my Earth. It was during that time he saw men and women of all ages giving praise and thanks to the Creator. He saw he was being replaced. Therefore, his hatred grew even more. After he sowed his hatred among the people, he was picked up again. Then he was imprisoned in Hell. However, in this case, a physical place called Hell World in Hell Galaxy. He was imprisoned in a special cell that couldn’t be broken. However, his minions or demons figured out what was needed to break him out. I have a question for you. Didn’t you experience a spectacular event in the night sky?”
”In what way, Richard?”
“Thousands of stars exploding all at once.”
“Oh my . . . I think we all saw something like that. It was incredible to see.”
“I’m sure it was, Jaxom. The energy from those exploding stars released Azazel from his prison on Hell World.”
“Now he is free to do his plans.”
“That’s right, Sharra.”
Everyone is deep in thought of the implication of what could happen.
“Now for the good news. Even these demon angels are going to try and destroy your world, they won’t succeed. In the Oort cloud are many pieces of rock containing Ethereal Space ore. When it becomes close enough, the bluestone pillar that Jaxom found in his Hold will become activated.”
“A bluestone pillar? Where did it come from, Richard?”
“It came from my world. It was taken thousands of years ago from my home country in the British Isles.”
“You mean the same bluestone that is used to build Stonehenge?”
“That’s right, sir.”
Everyone begins to giggle and laugh at the implications of the connections are being made between Earth and Pern.
“So, the Creator or the Emissaries took those bluestone pillars and placed them on worlds that need the direct connection to get back home.”
“Yes, that’s right, Sharra.”
Everyone giggles and laughs. Even the dragons are laughing about the idea. The Creator is looking out for his Creation.
“So, when the Ethereal Space ore gets close enough, the bluestone pillar will get activated. Then a magical field will get erected around Pern and be sent through space at hyper speeds. We will probably travel through the stable worm hole to get back to my multi-verse. It will continue until it reaches my world. Apparently, Pern will be on the other side of the sun where my Earth is located.”
“Where should we be when this happens?”
Jaxom speaks up next, “We should be in our cave Holds. Also, the land animals will probably be seeking shelter as well during this trip. They will be calm during the entire trip. Once the trip is over with, they will come out of the caves and resume their lives.”
“At what year will we arrive there, Richard?”
“You will arrive at about 2950 according to my Earth time. But, I will need to leave Pern right away. I need to use the Emissaries’ star ship to go back in time to 2100 or so. I will be needed to affect change on my Earth. If all goes well, from your perspective, you will see me soon. From my perspective I will see you in 800 years or so. I expect the Ultimate Last Battle to begin during the 2950's. Don’t worry. You won’t be alone. The Creator is planning to have everyone here to fight against the demon invasion force. I am also sure Azazel will bring a host of bad people here as well from all of the multi-verses.”
They all look at each other carefully.
“We are given an opportunity to be saved and to live again. The Creator is looking out for us. We must be prepared for what will happen tomorrow. We must get the people to calm down and to think clearly.”
“So, Dragons of Pern, what do you think will happen tomorrow?”
The dragons look at each other to confirm their thoughts. Their dragon riders immediately hear them speaking to each other. Once the discussion is over with, Ruth speaks up for the dragons.
“Ever since I met Richard yesterday, I knew he was telling the truth. Richard is part animal. He has a drop of dragon blood within himself. The original intent might have been used to cause harm, but the Creator has used it to confirm his special place among the animals. Therefore, we the animals of Pern must trust the Creator. He will protect us all tomorrow.”
I give a big smile so that everyone can see it. Brianna quickly takes my hand and squeezes it. My fairies quickly land on our shoulders and heads. They have big smiles on their faces. Brianna and I can hear my fairies humming a tune of praise to the Creator. Soon everyone hears it. They rest of the people begin to hum the new melody. Everyone hugs each other and the dragons as well.
Nothing or no one will break this bond that we have forged this day.
“I think we all agree to that Ruth. We have now been here for a few marks on the sundial. It is time for the evening meal. Get a good night of rest everyone. We’ll get up at the break of dawn to get ready. Eat a very good morning meal everyone.”
The people enter the castle to get the evening meal ready. The dragons fly over to the cattle yards to get their evening meal.
Everyone is in a somber mood and is very quiet. We are all wondering what it will be like tomorrow. After an evening meal of more grilled fish, vegetables and fruits we watch the sunset one more time. Everyone knows it will be the last one they will see until they see it again back at Earth.
Once we have seen the sunset, we all retire to our rooms. The dragons fly to their weyrs for their evening sleep. We change our clothes into our warm night clothes. The fairies are warm underneath their covers. Brianna and I snuggle up close as we fall asleep at roughly the same time.
