The new next day Mrs. Black was waiting at the door of our cabin for me. She asked me to follow her to the stables, I agreed and stayed a few steps behind her at all times.

Once inside she took me to a back room that I never even noticed existed. There was rows of large eggs being incubated. Each one was labeled with what breed it is. They are all different colours, there was a pure black Dracon egg and a red and orange speckled Spara egg. I stared at each in awe of the amazing colours and size.

At the back of the room was a small fenced in area, Mrs. Black was standing over in front of it glaring down at the contents. Slowly I walked up beside her and looked down.

"You may choose which ever one you like. If you have any questions feel free to ask. If you wish to go in or hold one you can first put on a pair of gloves." She said, sounding very formal. Almost as if her words are rehearsed.

I slipped on a pair of leather gloves and slipped in with the young dragons. Some welcomed me and played with my boots while other ran from me. I noticed a small green and blue dragon sleeping in the corner, I quietly placed my hand on it's back, when it stirred I knew exactly what one I wanted. It was Robur, the Veneno they used in training. His eyes met mine and I scooped him up. He yawned showing off his next to empty mouth.

"This one." I said to Mrs. Black.

"Not many chose so easily, he is yours." She said. "Now go get Fiona ready for your first lesson as an official student."

Gently, I placed Robur back in his corner and he instantly fell asleep. I then quickly went to get Fiona and was off to my first class. The new instructor introduced himself as Mr. Smith, and proceeded to introduce me to the class.

We spent the day of working on strength and agility. We raced our dragons, I was ready to rest. Fiona was much faster than I am, and will ever be. My feet are killing me and my muscles are aching. We had to do twenty push ups, then twenty more with the tail of our dragon resting on our backs. It was a workout.

At dinner I ate as much as I could. The workout really gave me an appetite today. The girls were chatting away the entire time, I joined in when I understood what they were talking about, but the rest of the time I just ate.

After dinner, I went back to the stables to get Robur and work on some training. There was others in the arena working with their dragon as well. Ryder was there with Jessamine, from the ground it is hard to tell what they are working on. I brushed it of and turned my attention to Robur.

I decided to start with dog tricks again, a simple sit, stay, come, lie down, rollover and follow my finger were a good start. He listened very well and responded better to a pat on the head than the meat I had with me. He followed my finger and my feet around and even flew for a bit.

The others were packing up and I did the same. I scooped up an exhausted Robur and trotted over to Ryder.

"Hey Ryder! How's Jessamine doing?" I asked, he grunted and walked away. "Someone's grumpy. What's wrong?"

"Nothing." He muttered.

"There has to be something."

"Why do you even care? Go bug Beau, he's over there with his young Noctis." I realized Beau was here as well, I had forgotten he has a Dagon to train as well.

"Fine." I said getting annoyed with his attitude.

I ran over to Beau who was holding his small Noctis in his arms.

"Hey Beau!"

"Oh hey! I didn't even see you there!"

"Thanks love you too." I said sarcastically. Something hit me in the back of the head and I yelped in pain.

"What happened?" Beau asked concerned.

"I don't know. Something hit me in the head. Am I bleeding?" I turned to let him look at my head.

"Nah, you'll be fine." He said.

"What's up with Ryder?" I asked.

"I don't know, he's been like this since last night." He said. "None of the guy in the cabin could get him to talk."

"You share a cabin with him?"

"Yeah. Why?"

"No reason."

Beau and I walked together until we had to split up and go to our cabins. It was dark by the time I got back and some of the girls were already in bed. I realized how tired I really was and I was out before my head hit the pillow.
