Thaddeus finally had some time to himself, to be himself. It had been a mad few days, between being Searched and being thrown right into the lessons Thaddeus had not had as much time to himself as he was used to. Not only that but for some reason he had had a short-term personality transplant and had been attempting, in his awkward and unpracticed way, to be overly personable. It was not a look that suited him. All he could hope for was that the other candidates wouldn't think him to weird.

With an internal sigh, he made his way towards the Hatching Sands. The large open space was more often than not empty and of course, there was the lure that it held for every new candidate. Never having been out on it yet, Thaddeus ha even put on proper boots on so that he could go out onto the sand itself. The heat burning up and through the thick leather. It took his breath away.

Used to a more cooler climate the heat brought an instant sweat to his brow and sapping of his energy. As he wiped the sweat from his eyes he heard a voice call his name from the stands.

It had been a rather chaotic time. Ever since he had been Scouted, things had gone by in a flurry. From saying farewell to his parents, to coming here, t being assigned a bed, and then into his lessons. His head was spinning, and he could hardly figure out up from down at this point. So having even a small amount of time to himself was quite welcome at this point.

Somehow, he'd found himself making his way to the Hatching Sands. There were no Dragons there, no Clutches of Eggs, but something about them drew him. He knew it would be hot, so he'd been certain to pull on his thick-soled boots, although he found that the heat still went through the leather. It was hot, very much so, and he found himself wiping at the sweat on his forehead.

The sands were nearly blinding, a gleaming pure white. He allowed himself a look around, before having his attention drawn at the sound of a voice, shouting a name - Thaddeus. That sounded familiar, hadn't the other been Scouted at the same time as he? So, drawn by his curiosity, he crossed the sands, approaching the sound of the voice until he saw another Candidate.

Jaros had been taking a break in the warm sandy area, while Waltz hopped around, excitedly chasing a bug he'd found, the tanned youth grateful for the warm area in which he could unwind, his muscles still tired from the lessons they had been experiencing each day. He wondered just how the others were dealing with the heavy workload they were being thust into.

Sure, most of the candidates were used to it, but Alan and Thaddeus had joined the same time as him. At least in his case he was used to physical labor from Opal hold. He hoped they weren't struggling too much. Speaking of which...

He could see part of the sands from the area of the stands he was relaxing on on the edge of the sandy arena, and it looked like Thad had decided to try rest up to.

"Thaddeus! Over here!" He called, waving the other guy over as Waltz cheeped, distracted by the yell and peeking over the seating to see who was there.

Thaddeus turned towards the voice and covered his eyes to protect them from the glare as he looked through the stands to spot who had called him. Seeing Jaros waving at him he started to move towards the entrance to the stands.

The stands he noticed were cooler yet still warm. But then anything was possibly cooler than the sands themselves.

Reaching Jaros he gave a small smile and settled into a seat next to him, Waltz peeking at him from behind the row of seats in front of them. "Hello!" He said, settling down and putting his booted feet up. More comfortable with silence than talking he simply left it there, instead socking up the heat and the view of the stands.

It was then that he saw the other figure moving across the sands towards them, it looked a lot like the other candidate that had arrived with him and Jaros.

"Isn't that Alan?" he asked as he pointed towards the person below.

Alan crossed the burning sands, reaching up to wipe some sweat off of his forehead. Shards, he'd never thought the Hatching Sands would be this hot, although he supposed it made sense. Eggs had to be kept warm, after all, to keep the Dragonets inside from dying.

As he grew nearer, he was able to see a streak of blue bouncing around the sand, and soon enough he could make out what looked to be a mini Dragon - a Firelizard. He loved the little beasts, and it naturally put a small smile on his face. Looking up, he could see what he presumed to be the Firelizard's Bonded - a large, bulky monster of a boy who would tower over him. Close by him was another boy, reclining in the stands.

It seemed they noticed him, as the shorter of the pair, Thaddeus if he was correct, began to point to him. He brought his hand up in a lazy wave, and called out a soft "Hello," once he was near enough.

Alan would join the others on the stands, sitting with his legs crossed in a seat, enjoying the relative coolness of the stands.

Jaros nodded as he looked over to see the skinny newcomer, Alan, the third of their group. All three had arrived the evening before the jogging lesson, so he was pleased to see they all had a chance to catch up.

"Hey Alan! Thought we'd try get used to the heat here a bit before we're expected to stay here when there are eggs. That and Waltz likes the place." He chuckles as the barely week old blue was busy investigating Thaddeus, edging closer and sniffing at the dark haired youth. "He only hatched last week and he's curious about everyone." Jaros said with a chuckle.

Waltz tilted his head before letting out a cheep at Alan and danced over to check the pale youth out. "Feel free to pet him if you want, he loves meeting people."

Thaddeus sent out a wave of greeting to the curious blue firelizard, amused by his bouncy yet cautious greeting. Quickly his attention was transferred to the new and now more interesting person as Alan sat down.

"So here we are... does it feel real yet?" He asked in general as he waved to the sands below and the future they faced with the dragon eggs that will one day sit upon the hot surface.

Alan frowned, reaching up to run his fingers through his messy hair. Sweat made the messy blond strands stick to his face, and it was beginning to irritate him. He didn't make it obvious though, instead settling for ruffling it. It was warm, considernig they were on the Sands, and while the stands were cooler, it merely meant that he was warm, not hot.

"Hello Jaros, Thaddeus." he said politely, watching as Waltz began to sniff at Thaddeus. "He's cute," he grinned, offering his hand to the Firelizard as he approached. If it allowed, he'd begin to stroke its head, enjoying the feel of its skin against his hand. "Hello, Waltz." he murmured softly.

Alan couldn't help but to chuckle at Thaddeus' question, and he shook his head. "Not at all."

Jaros smiled as Waltz got friendly, something he'd noticed the week old firelizard loved to do. He pondered over Thaddeus's questin for a moment as waltz clambered up Alan, searching for some food, the little scamp not learning yet that people usually didn't carry food around with them at all times.

"Having this lil fellow has certainly helped it feel more real." Jaros chuckled, pointing a thumb over towards the little blue, who realised he was being talked about and tilted his head, cheeping in query.

"Are you two hoping to get one yourselves?" He asked, deciding to rescue Alan from being climbed over and lifted the small blue off, feeding him some small pieces of food he'd kept in his pocket to calm him down a bit.

Thaddeus watched Waltz antics with amusement, enjoying the familiarity of having a firelizard around.

"I think that I am certainly going to put my hat in the ring for one, next clutch." He shrugged, "A have always wanted one, but never could find one of the clutches of any of the wild ones that hung about my families hold. No matter how I tried!"

Thaddeus watched as Jaros pulled the excited blue from Alan's shoulder and magiced some food from a pocket for to calm him.

"I might also be a lit of practice for if, when we impress!"

A soft grin crossed Alan's lips as the Firelizard began trying to climb him, stooping down to prevent from being scratched by the lizard's claws. "Easy bud," he murmured, adjusting to the little Firelizard's weight. His hand came up, scratching under the Firelizard's throat.

The firelizard chirped in his ear, making him startle. He grinned, waving at the Firelizard as it was removed from his person, and fed. "I'd like to, yeah. Never had a chance back home." He nodded in agreement to what Thaddeus said, agreeing, "Definitely! Nothing better than practicing with a live creature."

Thaddeus chuckled quietly and settled deeper into his chair, "Make sure we can aren't a danger to them and to ourselves when lacking sleep utterly!"

Turning to Jaros he asked, "Do you know of any clutches coming up soon?"

The little blue was a bit overexcited, and was crooning happily at all the attention, with Jaros keeping a watchful eye on the curious little guy. "I'm not sure. I was wandering around the living area and got asked if I wanted one and a blue egg was practically thrust at me by someone who seemed a bit stressed over their pregnancy." He shrugged. "I've asked some of the others though, and they said usually, there are notices on the candidate board in the living areas." He mentioned.

He settled back, the heat from the sands below making the air shimmer across the large cavern. "From the number of them around, it can't be too long before there's more." He mentioned before standing up and stretching, Waltz squawking in annoyance as he tries to clamber up onto a shoulder before requesting food.

"Well, lets go check out the sands. I kinda want to see if theres any shell left. I'm curious as to how big a dragon egg is..." He said, starting to head for the white soft arena.

Alan chuckled quietly at Thaddeus' comment, able to imagine it. He was able to function alright without sleep, but until he'd gotten used to it he'd been nearly useless when tired.

The blond had to admit, he was interested in having a Firelizard of his own, and so when Thaddeus asked Jaros if there were any upcoming clutches, he tuned in to listen.

He was rather disappointed to hear that Jaros didn't know of any clutches, his spirits were uplifted some upon hearing that people seemed to be quite generous with their Firelizard eggs. "I'll have to keep my eyes out, then."

Reaching up, Alan swiped some of his sweaty hair off of his forehead. Damn, the Sands were hot! Movement caught his eye, and he stood, intent on following Jaros down to the sands.

Thaddeus groaned a little under his breath, not really excited about going back out into the heat, but he knew that he would need to get used to it if he ever wished to bond to a dragon. So with a sweaty brow he stood and followed Alan andJaros down onto the sands.

Once he stepped out of the shade the heat rose up and hit him with an almost physical blow. Quickly drenched in sweat he carefully followed Jaros further out onto the sands eyes almost closed against the bright light.

"Don't they clean the Sands after a Hatching?" He asked as he tried to look for bits of shell against the bright glare of the sand.

Jaros stopped as the wave of heat from the hatching grounds washed over him. Compared to even opal, it was intense, the heat somehow magnified in the bowl as he walked over the soft sand. "Yeah, but I doubt they get all of it. Even when cleaning plates, I sometimes find parts I've missed, and those are a lot smaller." He chuckles, heading for the center, where the sand piled up.

It was clear that this was where the eggs were usually put, the increased sand cushioning any eggs that happened to be laid there. Waltz was rather curious himself, flapping his wings before taking a flying leap and landing in the sand and looking most displeased, sending an image or two of water and rocks, Something Jaros guessed meant that he was complaining that he shouldn't be sinking in the ground. He scooped the annoyed blue out of the warm sands and set him back on his shoulder, where the blue promptly climbed on top on his head as Jaros started running his hands through the sand, searching for any shards he could find.

Panting in the heat, Thaddeus climbed up the mound after Jaros. Mentally if not verbally agreeing with him, it was too hot for talking. Pausing on the lip of the mound he looked over the hot soft sands and then back to see where Alan was.

Then he moved to next to Jaros and knelt in the sands and also started to sift through the sand. Thinking that he had a better chance of finding a piece under the soft sifted sand he pushed his hands deep into the sand until the sand was well over his wrists and slowly pulled his hands back up, dredging the sand in a way.

"I do hope that we find a piece..." He said to no-one in particular.
