Late one wintry night, when the skies were clear and the moons up and full, the Weyr was awoken by the humming of many dragon voices. At last, Iaverulth's and Kainaesyth's eggs were Hatching and the Candidates were rushed out with just enough time before the first shell split. It was a quick Hatching, but all pairs are healthy and there was quite the Hatching Feast afterwards despite the midnight hour.

The timing could not have been better, as Kayeth grows heavier with her clutch everyday and with the promise of an empty hatching grounds there are many who are breathing a sigh of relief… and the betting begins on just how big and how many eggs the senior gold will clutch in the end.
