We watch as the final breath is taken by our rider. His name is Lei of the human lands of Mirth. He was good as a rider, though not what we were truly looking for. And he is just another in a long line of those who were not The One. We have grown old in our waiting. We have grown wise and strong, we are fierce and bold but we are no longer patient. We seek something else; something more. It is not something we have ever seen within the depths of Lei or any of the others. We will choose more wisely next time. We will choose only The One; for we are too strong, too bold, too fierce and too cunning for those of the human lands to make us do anything but what we want.
We are Tain. A dragon among dragons. We are not only a flyer but we are of the class of fire and the clan Gkra. We are ancients who know things no other clan know. We are what we are; we are the story tellers, the myth builders and those who are more.
And we have grown tired.
We look to the husk of our once rider and feel a loss of more than this one small life. Lei had heard the call of the sky. He understood the wind and saw the joy in the storm. But we felt no connection to his heart. Turning from our once rider, we settled our wings more comfortably and make the walk away. Dragonsí amany bow in grief to us and their riders do the same. We will seek the sky and all it has to offer us; and soon it will be time again. Time to choose a new rider. This time, we will choose right.
