(I Changed Morran's name to Lewyn)

When they arrived the town was filled with an uncommon murmuring. Jynessa stopped a boy in the street.

"What is going on?" Asked Jyenessa

"Some strangers have come to the town." said the boy.

"Lots of strangers come to this town."

"People are saying they're from Dorne. Isn't that where you two are from?" asked the boy.

"Yes" replied Jynessa. Her heart stopped for a moment as she struggled to find the right words. "Thank you, run along. It's almost nightfall."

The boy nodded and did as he was told. Lewyn turned to her.

"It can't be them, can it?" asked Lewyn in a whisper .

"It's possible." Jynessa whispered back. "We need to be sure. Let's check the inn."

The pair practically ran to the inn. It was crowded, and the two spent nearly an hour searching it. The boy was right, there were a lot of Dornishmen in the inn and tavern. While searching, they noticed a boy with blue hair and a girl with an orange and crimson, eagle-like bird being escorted by no less than four soldiers. It was around this time they noticed Elia and a black haired boy struggling through the crowd. Elia and the boy each were clutching large boxes that clearly had some sort of animals in them. Jynessa got a strange feeling in her stomach. Whatever was in those boxes were made of fire and the screams of men. Even so, she felt they were as connected to Elia and the boy as Serena's son was with his pet. She was about to call Elia's name before remembering they were in public. It took her a second to recall the name Elia had chosen.

"Larra?" she said in a loud voice. Elia turned around and froze.

"Nessa? Lewyn?" exclaimed Elia. Jynessa went to hug her but she recoiled. She turned to the boy and said, "Sam, can you make it to our room by yourself?"

"Yes mother" replied the boy Jynessa realized was Aegon.

"Are you sure you can handle it?"

"Yes" said the boy as he ran off with his box. Elia turned to them. A series of hisses came out of her box.

"Shhh" she whispered. Whatever was in the box continued hissing and shaking.

"What's going on?" Asked Jynessa

"I can't explain here." replied Elia. "Let's go for a walk."

Elia grabbed Jynessa's hand and started to walk out, while Lewyn followed close behind. Jynessa felt Oberyn's gaze followed her and Lewyn as they were rushed out the door by his sister.

"Where are the rest of the founders? They will need to hear this as well." said Elia the moment they stepped outside.

There were Nine in the Council of Founders, Moran and Jynessa included. Twice a week, they would meet and discuss how to deal with the Village's problems. The Council in Rhoyne's Cove prided itself on listening to and fixing the problems of its people in a way that benefitted the town as a whole. Elia, Lewyn, and Jynessa walked to the meeting house and rang the summoning bell.

"Does Serena still live here?" asked Elia as they waited.

"Yes" said Jynessa. She had known this question had been coming. Elia looked angry for a moment, then sighed. Xhondo was the first to arrive, then Chataya. Both were from the Summer Isles. Xhondo worked as a trader and was the main reason Rhyone's Cove became prosperous. before settling in the Village. The rest of the founders showed up in less than five minutes except Beric, Jynessa's youngest brother. By the time they were in the primary meeting house, Elia began to speak.

"Can all of you promise to keep a secret?" she asked, placing the box on the table. Everyone in the Council nodded. Lewyn shifted uncomfortably and Jynessa wondered if he sensed the beast's nature as well.

"Dragons have returned to the world, and I have proof." Elia said. Before anyone could react she opened the box and out crawled a dragon, small and golden.
