Crossing the Divide 20

"A team lead by Lady Hisara Kaari, ruler of our House, eventually found its way to a place of eternal winter." Alexander said, taking me out of that brief memory. "It was cold and unlike anything that had been seen before. What made them stay there as long as they did was the sight of a different kind of dragon. These creatures were white as snow and had a shine like they were made of ice. They were also much larger than any dragon known in Valyria. The smallest of them easily dwarfed the most renowned of any of the dragonlord families. It was at this point they felt as if the gods had answered their prayers of how they were to proceed next."

With all this talk of the Kaari wanting to evolve themselves it made me think that they would like what had happened to me. Maybe if my House had still been alive now they would consider me some kind of chosen one. That I would be ruler of my House merely because of the wicked fate placed upon me. But all I wanted was to be was human and thinking of myself as such was becoming harder every day. Did it really matter what I was, though?

"After many months of effort, they managed to bring back some ice dragon eggs." It continued.

"Hisara ordered experimentation on the eggs commence to bring about a fire and ice hybrid. It wasn't certain what such experimentation could yield. Some hoped to merely increase the size of the fire breathing dragons while others wanted something a little more complicated. The size was one fact and another was the ability to breathe both fire and ice. Or just a combination of the two."

"Were the experiments successful?" I asked, though I was already sure of the answer.

"Most weren't and abominations were created. Pitiful creatures that could hardly breathe and died soon after hatching."

I was now seeing through Hisara's eyes and felt her worry. There had been too many needless dragons suffering. Being descended from dragons, she felt as if she were harming parts of herself. The newest hatchlings screamed and yelled as their blood froze leaving them to only know pain before dying. She stood strong and didn't let the other Kaari see her tears. Those were for her and her husbands only.

"So the experiments were stopped but not before there were two eggs ruled to be successes." Alexander continued. "The Kaari most knowledgeable about the countless failures said that the two felt different. There was an energy in them that they hadn't felt in the others. These two were kept safe and guarded by the most skilled swordsmen of the House. But when the Doom of Valyria came to be the eggs were lost amongst all the chaos. Some cried out that House Targaryen, the only House to survive the Doom with dragons, had stolen them. This was later proved to be untrue and when the Targaryens started to enact their genocide upon our House there was no time to look for the eggs. But now the two dragons have been found."
