    "How narrow-minded of you," Blue said dryly.

    "Perhaps I will follow you around, then," Pat tried to smile.

    Violet walked up to Blue and Blade. "If you two are done with your date, perhaps you would like to see the rookery then the mess hall?"

    "Nahhhh, I don't go after princesses." Blade said. "But rookery sounds fun, and food sounds even funner."

    Mark helped Pat put the tools away correctly. "I'll help you out as much as I can."

    Blue opened his mouth to say something, then closed it when Violet shot him a look. She reminded him of some of the matrons in the Elf clans. Silently he followed the cold woman to the rookery where she shoved the doors open. "This is the rookery. Your dragons will be housed here in small cages at first, cages you will build, then once they are older and less likely to get themselves injured in hatchling escapades, they will each have their own stall where they will spend their time when they are not out training. Spend a moment to look around, then I will take you to the mess hall."

    Mark frowned upon hearing caging the hatchlings. "With all do respect, Lady, would it be possible to keep our hatchling with us instead of in cages? They aren't exactly mindless beasts. If we are there to help guide them as they grow, in theory they shouldn't get into trouble, and it will help us befriend them more."

    Blade rolled his eyes. "Geez, dragon rights activist much?"

    Mark shot Blade a look to try and get him to shut up.

    "No," she replied firmly. "Once yourcages are made, you will find them to be comfortable for the dragons. The cages are there to protect the hatchlings from themselves as a playpen is for a human child. These are not the types of cages you are used to. Once they are older an less inclined to climb up chimneys, then they will be placed in stalls. The stalls will be easy to get out of, but every dragon needs to have a nest of their own."

    Mark frowned. He didn't argue the point further, but clearly was not overly happy about it.

    Blade started to get bored again, and wandered a little around the rookery, looking at everything. He didn't mean harm, he was just ever curious.

    Violet gave them a couple minutes to look around the building the clapped her hands. "Come. Time to go to the mess hall. Blade, contain yourself for one more speach then you may eat." She turned and strode toward the caslle

    Pat scurried after, intimidated by everything.

    Blade followed eagerly, looking forward to the prospect of food. On the streets, he didn't always have a chance to eat his fill or even at all sometimes. The guarantee of three certain meals a day was something he was looking forward too.

    Mark followed as well. He liked how content and happy the dragons in the rookery looked. They seemed to know what they were doing here...

    Blue followed the others, still gazing around. He was more interested in the outside than the rookery, though he was a bit hungry.

    Violet led them across the lawn to the castle, showing them the way into the mess hall. "There will be three meals a day. If you are late, you get nothing unless you can appeal t the kindness of the cooks' hearts, but don't count on it. They are harder than I am. If you talks food from the kitchens, you will be put to work in the kitchens."

    Blade nodded firmly. It was clear he would certainly be on time for meals. He looked around the mess hall, his gaze wandering.

    Mark nodded. "Lady Violet, what will we be doing up here? Clearly raising the dragons that chose us, but what will our day to day look like outside of that and farming?"

    "You will begin every morning in the garden with your instructor," Violet began. "Once you have completed your work for that day, you will come for breakfast. A bell will be rung before every meal and you will have time to get to the mess hall, there will be a certain leniency to not arriving to meals on time as often you will be far away or need to wash first. Tardiness to class, on the other hand, will not be tolerated. Following breakfast, you will have fight class then wilderness training with the same instructor who oversees your farming duties in the morning. Then the mid-day meal followed by time spent in lecture here in the castle's library." She paused and looked at Blade. "Yes, it will be boring and feel unnecessary, but for your sake, try to learn." Moving on, "After the lecture you will go to the blacksmith to learn how to forge tools, weapons, and make and mend your own saddle among other useful information. Then will be dinner and, finally, dragon training will take up the remainder of your day. You may spend as much time with your dragon as you please outside of class, and as your dragons age, time spent in other classes will lessen and training will become paramount. Certain lessons, such as fight training, will continue, but lecture will eventually be dropped and flight and wilderness will be combined into one class. After dragon training, you will have a free period before lights out. No, I will not be checking bunks to make certain everyone is there, but it is suggested you try to be in bed when lights are out for your own health. Any questions?"

    Blade raised his hand. "Why is it for our own health? Is there like a patrol or something? And what's the punishment for being late or skipping a class?"

    Mark rolled his eyes. This guy...This guy would be the death of them all if they had to work together for anything.

    "FOr your own health means so you are not tired the next day and dragging. So you will remain healthy and not become ill. The punishment depends on the teacher, they will explain more as you meet them for your first day of class," Violet explained.

    "But what if you're used to only getting a little sleep? Or taking lots of small naps throughout the course of the day?" Blade countered. "Wouldn't the whole sleep at these times make it harder on your 'health' than otherwise?"

    "As I said, I won't be checking bunks to make certain you are in them," Violet shrugged. "And naps throughout the day are generally not as healthy as one sleep time at night. As long as you are on time and alert, I don't care when or how much you sleep."

    Blade nodded and looked towards where they were to get food. "Can we eat now? I'm starving."

    Violet ignored that question and looked over the group. "Any other questions?"

    Mark looked at his new comrades. He didn't have any questions. He thought everything was explained well enough for now.

    Blade waved his hand. "Uh. I had one. Can we PLEASE eat? Kinda dying of hunger here..."

    "I have one, can you please shut up?" Blue asked dryly before turning to Violet and asking her about the history of the castle.
    As Violet launched into the history of the place, Pat edged closer to Blade. "She's stalling," she whispered to the boy. "In the kitchen, the Chef is like the King, and when he says it's ready, then we eat. Plus, there's others coming." She indicated the group of fresh trainees trickling in. They looked as fresh and clueless as Pet felt, even after having been here since their own choosing ceremonies, whenever that was. Some had traveled far.

    Blade nodded, understanding better now. "Although she could have just said that and I would have waited." Blade grumbled under his breath to Pat.

    Pat almost smiled at that. "Where would be the fun in that?"

    Blade flashed Pat a wicked grin. His eyes wandered across the other trainees. As one passed close by, Blade crouched to adjust his laces. Without anyone noticing (except maybe Pat), Blade had stolen that trainee's belt, allowing their pants to fall down.

    Pat gave Blade a frown as the other trainee yelped and stumbled, trying to grab up his pants. "Don't get in trouble before we even start. Please." She didn't want him to get in trouble after he'd been nice to her. Just the same, she edged away carefully. Last thing she needed was for him to yank down Her pants and find that the standard bulge was a pair of balled up socks.

    Violet and Blue turned from their conversation, Violet frowning in disapproval, Blue watching with a certain amount of amusement.

    Blade of course perfectly played off like he had nothing to do in the matter. He feigned surprise and amusement perfectly.

    Mark sighed and tried to help the poor guy. He wished he had his pack with him still. There was some thin rope he could have offered as a belt.

    Violet was having none of Blade's innocent act, but before she could say anything, the chef came out and announced in a booming voice that would have made any general jealous, "GRUB'S ON!"
    Violet glanced over her shoulder then said, "You will find copies of the map of the island at every place. Keep them, memorize them. Once you are done eating, you may explore. Please be careful of the two wild islands. I'd rather you not get eaten before we have a chance to kill you in training. Enjoy." She turned, walking out to avoid the rush of trainees.
