Yuki made her way to the kitchens, one of the new Candidates following closely, both of their arms full of flitter eggs. Seventeen eggs total, and at least one gold egg. There were many decent sized eggs, and a couple smaller ones as well. The trip between from the beach had only taken an instant, and the pair made their way quickly to the kitchens, where the hearth was. She stepped around some of the drudges, and the rest in the hall quickly got out of the way. Word spread surprisingly fast that a Rider and Candidate had brought a large Clutch of flit eggs back from the beach with them.
When they got to the kitchens, Yuki swerved around the cooks, who were busy preparing breakfast, and went toward the hearth. She gently placed the eggs down, then got on her knees near them. She smiled slightly, wondering what colors would emerge from the eggs.
"Oh, here," she said, helping Xandria with the eggs in her arms. Once all seventeen eggs were on the hearth, she invited the girl to sit with her. "I can pretty much guarantee the color of the one in that gold egg," she told Xandria. "Either a Gold or a Silver. But the others are a lot harder to tell. There may even be a Rainbow or an Ice in one of those other eggs. What do you think?" She reached for the gold egg, then hesitated. She shouldn't disturb the eggs any further than she had. Any more disturbances could disrupt the Hatchlings inside the eggs. She pulled her hand back and placed it on her lap with her other hand.
