Daphne stopped dead in front of the dwarf.
Tue Aug 25, 2015 11:39

She looked him up and down thoughtfully, clutching her inflatable fire lizard tightly. Then, beaming, she said, "But! You have hair."

"Most people do, Daphne," Dafydd said as he scrambled after Bella. Dragging her away from the door, he took Daphne by the hand on the way through. "Sorry about her," he said to Brightbeard. "She's three; I'm afraid the only cure is time."

"But! I want hair!" Daphne's face crumpled as her father led her away from Brightbeard, and she let out a piercing shriek. "I! Want! Hair!"

On Dafydd's other side, Belladonna started to squirm. "Daddy," she protested, "if Daffy gets hair why can't I have some too?"

"NO!" Daphne bellowed. "I want it!"

RAAAAR said the balloon, not wanting to be left out.

Reaching Constance's side at last, Dafydd handed her Oleander - who had remained a very quiet bundle under one arm the whole time - and rolled his shoulder back. "Ow. Daffy, Bella, you've both got hair already; please stop screaming."

"Of course they've got hair, Dad," Tanfin said, adjusting his new hat. "Everyone's got hair."

"Unless you set it on fire!" Jasmine piped up.

"Right. Yes. Top marks for observation. Um, thank you, but no," Dafydd put in, with a quick smile at Wobbles. "I think we'd better get these little uruloki to a corner where they can calm down."

"What dragons?" asked Tanfin. "They haven't hatched yet."

"And they never will if you keep yelling at them," Constance said, taking him by the shoulder. "Come along, everyone, let's go over here..."


((This is basically my signoff for tonight. I'd still appreciate a comment from Nesh on whether Hera and Ilwion should be present, but the Illians are going to be busy keeping their horde quiet.))

((I'll bring the Lichen in tomorrow, if that's okay.))

((This is fun. ^_^))
