Des smiled when his egg finally hatched. He took a piece of meat and handed it to his fire-lizard, who gulped it down and continued to scale Des' leg. The Floater started humming under his breath, his surprise at the hatching giving place for a warm, fuzzy feeling not unlike the one he felt when he saw a kitten — which the name he chose for the fire-lizard all the more appropriate.
Giving Khataltelet another piece of meat, he raised his gaze and smiled at Dawn before turning his attention back to the little brown — whose hunger he was feeling, too — he gave him another piece of meat and started singing slowly. “When winter comes and all is silent,” he muttered under his breath, “the saddled mare is tightly bound; the fox she prowls under the moonlight, snow lays thickly on the ground...”

((“Khataltelet” חתלתלת comes from חתלתול khataltool, kitten, except its inflection is female in a somewhat uncommon form — it's not an actual word, mind you; it's how my family and I call cats. Any cat, really, their sex has nothing to do with it. It's similar to the slang word חתולה Khatoola (accent on the penultimate syllable), which means 'she-cat' but means 'any cat' when said thusly.))
