 hello my fruity friend, vidyn/william
William Taurins a level Elf-Wizard from Copun

While he loved his sister, Will was easily tired by her incessant chattering. They met for lunch, her insistence, and she recapped every single letter she’d sent home and how they responded and her various theories for what they might be feeling or not telling her or how they wanted him to write. He grunted in response sometimes, but frankly he knew that Cerise just needed someone to pour out all her pent up feelings to, not a conversation. It was a blessing that he could act as a blank wall for her, though it was still far more tiring than he’d admit to her. After all of that, he needed to escape into his sole retreat in Evercrest, the forest.

As he jogged into the trees, Will tossed his shoes into the hollow of the tree with the roots that looked like the Taitian slaskjern, a marker that probably only was obvious to him. Feeling the earth underfoot already felt like it was replenishing his energy. His steps slowed as more roots and underbrush surrounded him, only so he could admire it all over again. He pressed his magical consciousness into each plant, delicately looking to see if he could discern what color they were feeling. Some were a little stingy due to the colder temperature for the day, but Will paid it no mind. The forest was such a nice place.

Will wandered for a bit longer before he saw a huge sprawling tree, branches splitting up toward the sky and was reminded that he had a new friend whose head looked quite similar. Where would Vidyn be around now? The boy bit his lip and looked around the forest trying to remember where the general direction of the stables would be. Eodai were allowed to wander, so it was possible that his partner could be just about anywhere, but he decided that there was a still a good enough shot that he’d encounter the eodai on his way toward the stable area. He padded through the trees slowly while calling out Vidyn’s name softly every few minutes. While they could be gigantic, the large creatures could camouflage so he wasn’t quite sure what to look out for.

Vidyn a level eodai from Alluum
℣idyn ☫
The cool air didn't much bother the eodai as he picked his way through the forest. The lush domain of the wardens was ever-impressive, but not nearly as impressive as his mother's little kingdom. He missed her beautiful forest and her flowing mane, lain across the grass like water flowing through the roots of plants. She didn't move much, but if he lay close to her sometimes she would press her snout into his side and he would feel her love radiating outwards.

He liked his rider. He liked Evercrest. But he missed Mersa. He even missed his siblings, grating as it was to admit it.

He wove carefully through the roots and undergrowth, swaying ever so slightly so his odd, geometric horns didn't catch in the hanging branches or dangling vines. His own vines, wound loosely around his antlers, swung heavily back and forth. Some were flowering despite the time of years, some had born fruit. Some of the fruit was rotting and smelled sickly sweet, of fermentation and decay and rebirth. It would fall off and take root and grow as he walked.

It was a nice little gift everywhere he went. A pretty vine with pretty flowers and tasty fruit. His own concoction. There wasn't anything like anywhere else in the world.

Probably. He didn't really check.

The stables were fine, of course, they were all well taken care of. Evercrest loved its dragons. However, Vidyn preferred to wander the forest. He wasn't yet used to the buildings these people erected, the way they lived and talked. The small villages near his mother's forest hadn't been nearly as full, as intricate as these were.

He decided it was alright to take his time getting used to it. He'd spend a little less time every evening the forest and a little more in the stables, chatting with wardens and dragons. He was accomplishing something as he did both–caring for the plants with his magic and learning from the others. It was a good way to spend his time.

If he wasn't ready, he wasn't ready, as his mother would say.

Vidyn felt one ear prick up and he froze, his head tilted and his ears flickering. He had heard something. A soft sound. Speech, he realized, and he recognized the voice as well. After a moment the murmur resolved itself into a word, his name. His rider was in the forest, seeking him out. Well, that was alright with him.

Vidyn liked Will. He liked taking to him or listening to him or just sitting with him. They hung out together and that was perfectly fine. He though they would get along well for the rest of their lives.

Vidyn placed one long leg in front of the other, turning to face the direction Will's voice came from, and waited for his partner's path to intersect with his own.

Will couldn’t tell if his low calls were going anywhere. It was moments like these that he wished for the ease of the “Connection” runes. But this way, he could learn where Vidyn liked to wander. Or that would be the case if he showed a preference for anything in particular. For all he knew, Vidyn had just ended up there by chance. But his consciousness pressed out further into the grass and trees and he tried to listen for movement. There.

The hybrid turned toward the sound of moving hooves and slowly came upon his companion. He was a beautiful dragon, in a different way than most eodai. Will probably would have been more comfortable with a more natural looking one at first, but Vidyn had a distinct appeal. Without more delay, the boy waved and padded over a little faster. When he got up to the dragon, he gave him a decisive pat on the leg.

“Hey Vidyn, how’s it been going?” A quick movement and he withdrew a handful of honey candies for the dragon. “I brought these for you. How have you been adjusting to everything? Sorry I didn’t get out to see you sooner.” He held out the treats for his andzkin and looked up with a slightly happier expression than before. More than he would admit, being around his very own dragon partner was pretty exciting. Even if it took a while, hopefully Vidyn would appreciate him too.
