Yuki stopped by the creche and picked up her daughter. Together, along with Ayleneth and little Grace, they went to the beach. Yuki had attempted to try to find D'gan for a few days after returning to Rainbow Mists, but had been unsuccessful. Mainly, she wanted to congratulate him. He was Weyrleader after all. But she figured he was just too busy now to be able to get away. So she'd stopped trying to bother him and spent more time with her daughter, and her training.
Yura was now old enough that she had friends in the creche. Yuki still visited, and took her daughter out, but not as often as she did when Yura was younger.
It was low tide, so Yura was splashing in a tide pool while Yuki sat on a blanket nearby. Grace, her Gold-Silver Queenlet, flew around in the foam on the waves. Ayleneth watched from the distance.
"Mommy, what this?" Yura asked suddenly, holding up a seashell.
"That's a shell," Yuki replied.
"Shell... Pretty shell. Mommy, can I keep the shell?" Yura asked.
"No, leave the shell here so other people can find it," Yuki told her daughter.
