She was tiring. Her choice would come soon. She shot toward the stars, her muscles protesting as she did so. She turned her head, watching the two. They had one last chance to impress her, and that smaller DarkBlue would have to think of something incredible for her interest to shift. She watched the Crimson with interest. He was making himself known, and she was intrigued.
Yuki turned to R'niaan. Despite the words he had spouted at the Hatching, she was curious about him. He was a stranger. She wanted to know more about him. Perhaps they could be friends. But his words lingered in her ears.
Most Riders go their separate ways after a Flight.

Bamath took his chance, he soared up to the Aurora, giving strong wing beats to get himself mere feet from her. He started to spiral around her body as she went upwards, as if he was dancing with her. He shot up past her, his body a shadow in front of the moon as he spread his wings to full length and then began a slower gradual rise, just above the Aurora, almost ready to grab her in stead of letting her make her choice. He was controlling himself...but it had been so long since a Flight.
Storith continued to sing, knowing it was a chance, especially given how that ugly King kept getting closer and closer to her. Why did she not snap at HIM as she had Storith? He resisted the urge to snort, unimpressed by what was obviously going on here. She preferred the King, that much was apparent, even though his garish coloring would outshine her and make her look dull in comparison. He was TRYING Shardit, but the fact that it was bloody NIGHT, the time when those of his subtle coloring vanished, was a major drawback. He may be young, and not a King like that ugly Crimson, but he was sure HE at least was flying to KEEP her, not just flying to fly! It was taking a great deal of his strength to both maintain his song and continue to follow her, driving up into the sky as she did, aiming for the stars and beyond...
Her decision was made. That noise the DarkBlue was making... Was he trying to sing? Did he want to be some hyperactive Pink? Or perhaps that was his way of being noticed. Well, it was too little too late. She stopped, flaring her wings, and her gaze passed right over his form, almost invisible to her in the night. She had chosen.
Her gaze locked on the Crimson. She flew up to meet him, her movements slower now as she began to tire. She circled him, and then opened her wings to him. She had chosen, and her choice was Bamath.

Bamath took his hold on to Ayelenth, enclosing the dragoness and beginning their slow decent back to Pern's surface.
R'niaan's lust had reached it's peak when his Crimson was chosen. He grabbed Yuki and pulled the Rider into his strong arms. He felt his heart beating hard and fast. He had a devilish grin come across his face and said, "They chose for us tonight..." he leaned in to her for a long kiss. The moonlight shone down on her face perfectly, enhancing her beauty even more...if such was really possible in R'niaan's eyes.
He pulled her back to her quarters, beginning to lose any consciousness of his own he had left before Bamath's emotions took over and mixed with his own for the rest of the night.
