Batch two!
Mon Aug 31, 2015 14:54

The little blue preemptively dubbed Zeke was not interested in words. He was very, very interested in the meat Alex held in his other hand, toward which he turned and pounced. He tried to propel himself with his still-damp wings and overbalanced when the tip of one struck the sand. He screeched in frustration at being kept from his meal.

Four more eggs cracked.

The two belonging to Alleb and Shui-Hua were greens. The tapping Alleb felt soon turned into determined rocking, and unless she put it down in a hurry, she would have a handful of egg goo and a flailing green fire-lizard with sharp little claws scrabbling for purchase on her palms.

Shui-Hua's egg, being safely on the sand, hatched with no trouble. This one was a bright mint green, like a beryl. After her initial startled screech upon suddenly freeing herself from her shell, she caught scent of the nearby bowl and started for it.

Brightbeard's egg seemed to rock to the rhythm of his humming. It thrummed to a low note and finally cracked, spilling its albumin and a rich, dark mocha-brown hatchling. His fiery eyes whirled as he got to his feet, and he gave a little bugle and shook his wings.

Jenni was watching as Bosh'Guk's hatchling, or just Guk's, as it happened, made its appearance. She was concerned about this one, though she wasn't planning to intervene unless the little fire-lizard showed signs of distress. Everything looked fine for now, though. The hatchling was a dark blue, and he quickly got up and began stalking around the remains of his shell, creeling with hunger.

  • "Hey there, Zeke."Iximaz, Mon Aug 31 13:43
    Alex grabbed several pieces of meat and offered one to the little blue. "I'm going to take care of you," he said, laughing when Zeke snapped up the meat from his hand. "I promise."
