What wisdom can I give people that they havenít already learned? What feats can I achieve that an army couldnít do better? Itís insanity!
Itís overwhelming. I feel as if I am living in an illusion, a dream where all things are possible. Amazing things do happen, I know, but always to someone else, always in some far-off place and time.
A hatchling, that is what you are. A hatchling struggling into the world. I may be younger than you in years, but I am ancient in my thoughts. Do not worry about these things. Find peace in where and what you are. People often know what must be done. All you need to do is show them the way- that is wisdom. As for feats, no army could have given the blessing you did.
After all, how can a mere dragon expect to tell a man like yourself what to do? In fact, everyone should stand in awe of your brilliance of finding the only dead end.
That's the problem! I've been choosing male names. You are a she!
"Are you Saphira?" She looked at him with intelligent eyes. Deep in his mind he felt her satisfaction.
If anything happens, I'm going to pin you to my back and never let you off.
I love you too.
Then I will bind you all the tighter.
Nothing. It's funny to see a hatchling like you beaten by the old one.
Together we can cast spells that are beyond either of us.
No hunter of the sky should end his days as prey. Better to die on the wing than pinned to the ground.
Saphira, where are you? Let's have some fun!
My heart died a while back.
The worth is in the act. Your worth halts when you surrender the will to change and experience life.
The only true guide is your heart.
If I drank that much mead it would kill me!
That's why you're not a dragon.
I will fight when needed, revel when there's an occasion, mourn when there is grief, and die if my time comes...but I won't let anybody use me against mt will.
I have skills!
Should I kill him?
I was no more resposible for my conduct than if I were drunk.
You donít know what it is to reach my age, look back, and realize that you donít remember much of it: then to look forward and know that many years still lie ahead of you...
Well, then... if you do, come tell me. I am most interested in this trader who pretends to know so much about dragons.
Anyway, I'm not going to stay behind while some stripling gets to run around with a dragon.
