Ah, sorry Tealwolf, I forgot that you were before Hurricane's.
Here, I've decided that to make it up to you, I changed up my style slightly.
I hope you enjoy!
The Next Life
Starlight’s story - Tealwolf
Some dragons believe in reincarnation.
Where one dragon’s soul keeps coming back, even after death.
Where they can redo past mistakes.
Sometimes these chances come even while you’re still alive.
Losing Moon to Qibli was hard.
Scratch that, it was excruciating.
Nothing beats the pain of missing someone who still lives.
I learned something from that, though.
Even if you’re in pain, you must keep your head up and looking forwards, otherwise you’ll miss everything around you.
I almost did.
Then I met her.
My mate, a NightWing within the reformed Talons of Peace.
We had eggs together.
Two glittering Ice, Night hybrid twins, they grew up in Sanctuary.
A male, Silverlining and, a female, Primrose.
They were accepted to JMA, the school where Moon now teaches as the Moon powers teacher.
She and Qibli got married and had eggs as well.
A female with mindreading and animus powers.
I guess Moon’s just one of those dragons you can’t forget.
Yes, she’s special.
I still love her.
It’s been a few weeks since school started.
I was placed in the Jade Winglet, like my father.
Primrose is in the Gold Winglet with Bloom, Kinkajou’s daughter.
Funny how destiny is.
My father’s first true love’s dragonet is in my winglet and I think I’m already falling for her.
Her all black scales and barbed tail.
I wonder if it’s poisonous.
I think I fell for her personality more than anything.
Her quick wit and sarcastic remarks.
She was the thing I lacked.
I had all the moonlight and sunlight I could ever need.
I was missing something.
The next day, I saw my opening.
It was after Moon’s class when Starlight was alone.
It was my first chance to talk to her, after admiring from afar.
I made a complete fool of myself.
Hey, at least she laughed.
We started to hangout more.
It was great.
I felt like I was complete.
All good things must come to an end.
It was when the parents were invited to come to the school that it began to change.
Starlight was introduced to Hightide, Queen Anemone’s son.
It was like my father’s life.
Having his love taken away from him by his best friend.
I guess I hadn’t truly explained.
I had met Queen Anemone’s son when they came to Sanctuary and we became good friends during that visit.
He was a late arrival to JMA.
I never saw an opportunity to talk to Silverlining after Prince Hightide came to JMA.
I had been assigned to help him adjust to the school after his late arrival.
It took up more time than I thought and my schedule didn't allow enough time to talk with Silverlining, my crush.
After all of those hours spent hanging out with him, I eventually began to fall for him.
I read his mind after a while, he was genuinely honest about liking me, not just for who my parents were.
To be honest, he had already caught my eye from the start.
Hightide must have caught on.
He had told me to wait at the top of the mountain.
I stood there for an hour, yet he never came.
Instead it was Silverlining who took his place.
It was wonderful.
Ever since I was born, I was burdened with the unsaid expectations of my peers.
To be smart.
To be brave.
To be strong.
It tripled as I entered JMA.
I dreaded it.
I was afraid of failing, and that alone is the cause of my dislike of the school.
I guess he was the Silverlining that I was waiting for.
