I look at the sun and take a guess at the time, the yellow orb is still pretty high so I figure some time after noon. I can just barely make out Ayla in the distance but the deep voice of the Amazon reaches my ears.  I guess it's not going well for her either, I don't know what these plants are used for but they don't want to contribute to the potion.  I adjust my grip on the small traveling ax that I carry and give it another furious whack.   "Ouch!" I look at my arm and just a couple on inches above my wrist I see a needle like spike. Ayla has her sword in her hand and makes her way towards me. I wave her back, "It's okay, just a run in with a thorn." The sword finds it's way back into it's sheath and she turns away.  In the next second I find I have a couple more sticking out of my arm.  "What in the world is going on?" I spin around looking for my attacker.  All I see are an angry mob of hummingbirds.  Wait, hummingbirds don't have stingers.

Finally I catch a better look, these birds are a bit bigger then I'm used to and if my eyes aren't playing tricks on me they have a small rider on their backs.  Then I notice the tiny bow and arrows in their hands. I hold up my hands in surrender, there's no way I'm going to fight these cuties. "Is there a problem, ladies?" One gets right in front of my nose, arrow pointed at the tip.  I don't see her lips move but I can hear in my head, 'Oh great, my favorite way of communicating.' I explain to them that I need this plant for the Elves to make a potion to cure a poison that has been discovered by the death of a friend. They start buzzing around my head, making it hard to keep my eyes on them. Are they about to finish the attack, have they not noticed the giant looking in our direction.  I hear the command to follow and I start obediently following the fluttering army.

Ayla hears her companion's query and sees her hands in the air, just standing there.  She gives a snort, no wonder it takes so long to get anything done, that girl is constantly stopping to complain about one thing or another. Putting the last plant in her bag, she starts to make her way over, just as Penny turns away and starts to walk slowly in another direction. Hands still in the air, occasionally dodging here and there as if to miss something or swat something away.  Ayla stops for a minute, maybe the girl has finally lost her mind, it wouldn't surprise her one bit.  She reaches for her traveling telescope and raises to her eye and quickly lowers it. A second later, it's back in place.  Before her she finally sees why the girl's hand are up and occasionally moving, she is be escorted by mini warriors on hummingbirds.  It went against her nature but she just had to give a quick chuckle, it shamed her a bit that she was starting to soften some being around these people.  There was no way around it, she had to get back on the trail of the Wise Dragon.  An Amazon Warrior, did not chuckle. Definitely not!

Da Cap out


From: PennyA2


I've always had a fondness for hummingbirds but right at this minute, I was tempted to swat them out of the air. My arms were constantly dodging the  annoying things, couldn't they control their fly plan or were they just out to keep me dancing all the way there. Where ever there was. I took a quick peek behind me and saw Ayla walking my way until she stopped and just stood there staring. She probably thinks I've gone crazy. Don't my abductors see her? If they do, why  aren't  they at least concerned and that kind of bothers me.

We stop at a large tree and I was able to put my arms down, when  most of them disappeared, I was tempted to do the same but I was curious as to why they wanted me and not Ayla.  She had now joined us but as usual, kept her own counsel.  I could feel the air around me change slightly and very large jewel colored dragonfly hovered at eye level.  Sitting astride, was another of the sprites, it was hard to tell if it was male or female but I guess it doesn't really matter.  <It matters to me you ignorant lout.> the very male voice rang in my head.  "Terribly sorry, sir." I said peering a little closer.  I felt a sharp point on my forehead. <Step back!>  with my eyes crossed because the pointer was so close, I could see the angry little face of a guard giving me the stink eye.

<State your business.> the dragonfly's jewel tones glint like shards of glass, it really was beautiful.  "Ouch, quit doing that," I whined and rubbed my forehead.  <Then quit staring and state your business.>  My business, right.  "We need some of those plants," I point to the plants behind me.  "The Elves need them to make an antidote for a poison that killed one of our friends and some of their people. "  It started to sound like a swarm of angry bees, wings were beating the air so fast, I couldn't see them at all.  Soon it quieted down and the dragonfly was back, <Take these, plant in full sun and once a week cover the soil with crushed egg shells and a pinch of this.> At my feet was a small bag of something and the shoots of the plants they  needed.

"Thank you, we really appreciate this and I'll be sure to tell them how to care for the young shoots" I gathered the precious things and placed them in my saddle bag.

<They already know, we were  expecting you."  and with that final word they flew to the top of the tree and out of sight

I rub my Amulet and speak in a very humble voice...

Your Majesty The Dragons and I will there tomorrow and in time for the grand day.

A few know I am returning and will have the Camp spic and span and ready for inspection but I will go to you My Queen first.

Your Loyal Warrior

Captain Randy


From: RosieBVT



Sorry, but acting commander Rosie is AWOL due to family emergency.  Consider orders given for an inspection, with suitable complaints about the Old Man.


From: Randytb


After flying around double and triple times to lead a very mix and confusing trail we land finally at The Main Camp.

I walk The Dragons around to cool down then take them to there liar I was going to go get food and fresh water and treats for them but to my surprise every thing was there ready for them right down to fresh hay and grass for there beds.

I leave them to feed and say Frost look after your brother and sister and I will be back to get you when I finish meeting Our Golden Queen.

He nods for his mouth is full so I hug all three and head to meet Her Majesty.

I silently fumed all the way back to the Elves. Ayla as usual, was silent but I'm sure she's laughing on the inside.  I'll never forgive those beings for making a fool of me and I have a good mind to give the Elves a stern dressing down too.  I look at my arms and I could still see the small red marks left by their arrows and the one on my forehead I'm sure was oozing blood.  I would have asked my companion but I wasn't talking to her at the moment. The nerve of some people, they knew who we were the whole time and they treated me that way.

We rode into the Elven camp, every eye on us. Their faces held a look of hope not of laughter. The importance of finding all these ingredients for the cure finally sank in and I felt my anger fade a way.  What does a few little arrow holes matter in the  bigger picture, nothing.  Ilreth looked into my eyes as he took the bulging saddlebag.  "Did you have any trouble finding everything?"  I wiped my forehead with my hand and smiled.  "Nope, piece of cake."  I bowed my head at the elders, backed off a few paces and wheeled Midnight around and galloped off into the sun set.   ( okay, I didn't actually ride off into the sun set but I would  have it had been a little later ) Ayla's war horse pounding right behind me, a triumph Amazon yell broke the silence and all was right with the world again.

I reach and enter the Golden Queens Liar and fall to one knee head bowed and present my sacred Dragon Sword and Sai ,,

Your humble servant has returned My Queen what are my orders?

I hear her move about then say ,, rise brave warrior ,, I do so and see her face is wet I know she has been crying.

I am alarmed what is it My Queen that has you upset ???

Do you have news of your mate The Wise One and may I ask why your tears are filling that flask?

She tells me yes that she now knows where her mate is and is under a very heavy spell almost zombie like state and and very heavily guarded.

I need my tears that are mixed in with a few drops of my blood to break the spell and free him.

But I need you and the other Dragons and I need my rider or it will not work.

Imp's birthday is fast approaching and she still needs to train before we return to Pern  where she will fulfill her destiny as my rider and you yours as my solider/rider of arms and yes you and Frosts will become Dragon and rider and you and he will be the leader of the fighting Dragons and myself and my Mate's protector.

I fall again to my knee hold the sacred sword to my heart and say I am most honored My Queen and will full fill my duties until death takes me,,, she looks at me with smiling eyes and says there will be no death my brave one for as this becomes reality you and Imp become immortal .

To say I was shocked is putting it mildly but if this is Imp's and my destiny so be it.

We talked more about what was going on in TSR and what Murk and his ugly daughter and Adrian he wacko son but I knew she all ready knew all that .

Now she said it is time for you to prepare yourself and Imp first there will a week of training for her and I will spend many hours teaching her about Pern and her duties as my Rider , you will teach her how to fight with arrows, swords, Sai's and knives and you could ask Alya to help you teach her as well as The Queens rider she must be well versed.

Now go meet all those who have missed you so I am sure your pets will be wild with happines as I am on your return,,, first you must inspect the troops and the camp , and when you eat and return to your cottage you will find two wooden boxes one is yours the other for Imp.

No go and feed  we shall talk later...

I bow and walk backwards out of the liar and walk towards the pet's stables,,,, before I can take two steps I feel the ground shake and hear a very loud and excited trumpet BLOOSOMMMMMMMMMMMM OMG she is huge as she snaps me up in her trunk and trys to stop but we end up arse over tea kettle,,, I feel another wet snoot and wow Cherry what a big girl you have become I then feel a sand paper tongue on my cheek almost riping my face off ,,, FANG omg you are almost as big as Cherry and where is my Stump??? I feel a tug on my leg ah there's my boy  OMG what have you all been eating to get so big???

I rough house with them I am so happy to be back with them ,, then I hear OMG it's The Cap,,  Opel flys into my arms and almost squeezes me to death then TSK TSK you are to skinny Opel will fix dat up in a hurry I look at her Ebony face oh how I have missed her and her Jamaican way of speaking and her COOKING I can just see Mrs, Fletcher Miss Katt and Opel in the same kitchen WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

I am getting slaps on the back and my hand being pumped so hard  it about to fall off.

I smile a huge smile and shake My Boys hands Hoss, Brute, Brutus , Butch . and ole Spike...

Wow Wow it is so good to be back home with you all then I hear




Troops ready for inspection Captain Sir and before I can ask she explains Rosie's absence .

Carry One but hold on one sec,,, I pull a bar from my boot and say Penny front and center...

She snaps to and Salutes SIR YES SIR.

It is with great honor that I promote you to the rank of 1st Lieutenant   you are an officer now and well earned,,, I pin the bar on her lapel and say I will put the other on later I lost one but have spares in my cottage.

We inspect the Troops then the Camp all is perfect ,, return to the Troops  I tell Penny well done now dismiss the troops

Penny proudly steps forward ,,


As the troops leave I see leaning against her cottage what looks like a very very pissed off Imp,,, well well lookie who is back,, I laugh watch that mouth girl,, ahuh and you are going to do what ???? as she runs into my arms welcome home Daddy === I mean Captain sir.

I hug her tight not wanting to let go but my belly lets out a FEED MEEEEEEEEEEEEE we both laugh and head over to The Dinning hall to be feed by Opel her food from the Gods I drool as we walk........
