'Who are you?' Fate thinks at the voice, she didn't know how to read his thoughts, he didn't seem to be near her, yet he seemed to know how to read hers.
"ₕₒw dₒ ᵢ ₖₙₒw ᵢ cₐₙ ₜᵣᵤₛₜ yₒᵤ wᵢₜₕ ₘy ₙₐₘₑ?" The voice says, responding to Fate's thoughts.
'You don't' Fate responds to him, looking over at Star, who was now staring at her with an odd look on her face.
'You don't' Fate responds to him, looking over at Star, who was now staring at her with an odd look on her face. Star's thoughts; Wait, who was that talking to her, she can read minds too! Wait, that means she's reading mine now! Get out of my head!
"Then get out of mine." Fate responds to her.
Star shakes her head, "I don't know how to block thoughts..."
"Well, neither do I."Fate responds.
"How were you blocking my mindreading earlier?" Star asks, tilting her head.
"My necklace blocks mindreading, both from the wearer, and those around them." Fate responds, though, she knew she hardly needed to.
"You mean the stone in your necklace..." Star corrects Fate, causing her to roll her eyes, but nod at the same time.
"Yea..." Fate responds nodding only a second longer.
"Why do you wear it? I mean, you get to know so much when you can read minds, It'd be a nightmare if I couldn't..." Star asks Fate and Fate realizes she really doesn't know why she wears her necklace, she had only gotten it a few months ago and had lived perfectly fine without it... So why wear it?
Star smirks, "You wore it because of the silence, but you don't know why you ever liked the silence more than hearing other's thoughts..." The words she said formed at the same moment her thoughts came.
"Yea..." Fate responds, quickly realizing the voice had gone.
"Who was that, talking to you in your mind?" Star questioned, again tilting her head.
"I don't know, probably some other mind reader..." Fate responds, laying her head on her paws.
"The only other mind reader at Jade Mountain was Moon, and she's off on some great adventure right now..." Star says, sighing.
"The only other mind reader at Jade Mountain was Moon, and she's off on some great adventure right now..." Star says, sighing. Star's thoughts; Why couldn't I have gone with Moon? Turtle came flying back, and now where's he? no-one knows... Probably back with his winglet on an awesome adventure...
"Good morning new roommates!" Said a cheery voice, Lotus, who had her head just out of her hammock.
"Good morning Lotus..." Star and Fate said in unison, and Fate was hit with the wave of Lotus's thoughts, a nearly head-splitting amount of loud thoughts...
"You all make up the Topaz Winglet, I'd usually give a long lecture about not leavingJade Mountain, but I think it's not all the uncommon anymore..." Tsunami finished telling Fate and her Winglet, sighing.
"Now, converse among yourselves!" Tsunami finished after a second, speaking with an odd accent, which, as Fate could infer from her thoughts, was to make the dragonets around her feel a little more light-hearted.
Tsunami left the cave, her thoughts a pool of worry for the Jade Winglet.
"Uhh, h-hi, I'm M-mistral..." Said the Icewing who had been oddly silent through Tsumami's half-lecture.
"Hello, M-mistral, how's being the only cold ICEwing going for ya?" Said the Seawing who was sitting across from Mistral, next to Star.
"Stop getting on her tail Echo, she's cold, who isn't in this place?" A Sandwing scolds the Seawing.
"Ha, Osiris, you're a Sandwing, used to the scorching hot sun! Icewings should be able to withstand temperatures below zero!" Echo says, his mind filled with wonder about Mistral.
"We should probably acknowledge our other Winglet members..." Mistral says, looking at Star.
"Hi, I'm Lotus! You all have such pretty scales!" Lotus introduces herself, turning a bright shade of pink, which made everyone flinch back from her brightness.
"I'm Fatecaller, but you can call me Fate..." Fate introduces herself after Lotus got her scales under control.
"And you are..?" Echo says to Star impatiently.
"Stargazer, or Star, whichever you'd prefer."
"Ok," Osiris says, "Wait, why do we have two Nightwings?" His mind is full of confusion, questions about if the Skywings didn't want to lose another dragonet, or why they didn't send one.
Star sighs, "I'm part Skywing..."
It had been a long day, Fate had told Star to look for anyone who had a totally blank mind, as in, couldn't be read at all, but neither of them had any luck.
They headed back to their cave and went to sleep fairly quickly, and Fate had completely forgotten about the voice that had been in her mind that morning.
Fate woke the next morning slightly late, both Lotus and Star were no longer in the cave. She instinctively reached out for her necklace, but couldn't seem to find it.
'Oh right, it was stolen...' Fate thought, lifting her head and opening her eyes to see the silver gleam of her necklace right next to her tail, without the Skyfire.
