I smiled at the reply and sent, "Queen Rider Amelia here is the Grand Master Healer that saved almost two Wings of Great Dragons who were severely
injured. Because of her efforts we managed the Battle without loss of life. She will tell you that she had lots of help, and she did, but without
her those Great Dragons and Riders would have died. She can teach you a great deal. Over there we have Queen Rider Christine, the youngest and most
recent Battle Commander of Ressalon. Riding the Preeminent Queen, she took a full Wing into the Demon Realm itself to recover the missing Sword of
Balance. She is also the one that bested your Warrior Prince Commander in playful combat. She can teach you much about using Arcane Powers in
combat. The one sitting next to her is an Elf Lord, second in command of the Forces of Balance. He can also teach you much and he enjoys teaching
young minds. I am the one that ordered the Earth weapon fired. I was aware of the risks. A few little things went wrong after that. I am Tez.
With Titarth, and you have felt his mind earlier, we are the Prince Commanders of the Battle Forces of Ressalon and we are the Keeper of Balance."
She took a step backwards and bowed as deeply as she could. Her Aura displayed confusion and a question waiting so I sent, "Your Aura shows a
little confusion. Ask, it is the way that we learn."
She shook her head. I sent, "Ask Young Warrior, there is nothing you can ask that would
She gulped a little and finally asked, "Why do you not just order what you need done. Why do you need to ask the Warrior Princess
I sent, "I do not interfere in the development of any of the Species that choose to serve Ressalon. If I did so I could stifle
their growth as a Species. That would be unthinkable. One of the most precious things we all have is our freedom. Our freedom to choose where our
life will lead us. In your case, I will ensure that whatever you choose will be your choice and your choice only. You may learn all that you wish to
from this wonderful group I have assembled here. Where you go and what you do after is up to you. Any and all that serve us do so of their own free
will with full knowledge of the risks involved."
I looked at the Warrior Princess and asked, "What do we need to do next?"
She replied, "I will send a request to her Parents. I know them
well due to their professions. They will be thrilled on several levels. It will not be a problem, in fact, they will likely be awed at a direct
request from me."
I chuckled and sent, "Add Titarth’s and my name to the request. It is a request from the Keeper of Balance."
Warrior Princess seemed a little awed as did the Young Warrior. Titarth linked the Young Warrior’s mind in as I sent to Elinith, "Elinith, I
dislike throwing this Young Warrior in the deep end so to speak. I have a request for you. Would you consider staying here for a while at least
until her Parents arrive, perhaps a few days extra while she makes the transition. She likes and trusts you and I think those feelings are
Elinith answered, "It would bring joy to my mind to do so. I would be pleased!"
Then Mia came up and thought, "Well I am glad you all got that straightened out. You have probably scared this Young Warrior half to death."
Mia turned to the Young Warrior and sent, "Why don’t we find the Weyr Queen Rider and find somewhere that you and Elinith can stay while you are
here. Then perhaps you and I can go exploring this Weyr Ship that seems to be a Dreadnought sitting on its blunt end."
The Young Warrior smiled
and replied, "I would like that very much, Elinith was very kind. We have Castle Ships that are almost the same as this one. I wonder why they
all have different names."
I sent, "Off you go then and have some fun. Thank you Princess!"
As they left the Young Warrior asked Mia, "Mia, are you a Princess?"
Mia answered, "Yes, a very new one. A few weeks ago I was just Mia, an orphan that needed some help. Now I am the Draconic Princess, Rider of
Kirrith, Preeminent Queen Dragon. Sounds good but in reality I am still Mia, I am still an orphan, but, the number people that I love and trust has
increased dramatically. Try not to let it bother you. We all need friends and sometimes titles get in the way of that. I have to check on Natalie,
she is my sister and then we can find a place for you to stay."
Titarth dissolved the linkage as we all breathed a sigh of relief. It had gone very well and I was pleased. That Young Warrior had an astounding
ability, one that required careful training. Titarth thought, "She will do well with what we have provided. Her future will be bright no matter
what she chooses."
I looked at Akemi and said, “Watch them please and see that any needs are met. Stay close and also see that Elinith needs
nothing. She is without a Rider and I would care for her in any way I can. You could use some experience at dealing with Great Dragons and Warriors.
If the constant Telepathy becomes a burden simply ask Titarth for some help.” Akemi nodded and went towards Elinith. Titarth sent on a narrow
link, "They will both realize what you are trying to do in time, probably sooner than you think. They are a nice match though. Well done, I will
watch over them."
I smiled. Amelia leant over and quietly said, “I didn’t know you were into match making. Nice if it works though.” I
just grinned in reply.
