It was nearing closing time for many of the shops and only a few people lingered here and there. Rya and Kulaan were making their way down the cobblestone street. They had spent the last few hours hanging out in the village, they had even found a shop selling dragon plushies.
Now they were heading towards the place her Aunt had designated for pickup. It was better to be on time then to have her look for them.
“Ey, Kulaan?” Rya paused and looked up to the fading sunlight.
He slowed and then stopped, waiting for her to catch back up. “Yeah?”
Rya’s brows were knotted in thought as she caught back up to him. “D’ya t’ink t’ings will be different t’is year?” Her question came with a slight tip of her head. “At sc’ool, I mean.”
“Of course, Rya,” Kulaan stated with his normal confident air. “We are not First Years anymore. We practically run the dungeon now.”
He would say something like that, and Rya regarded him a moment before she placed her arm against his. “Aye. T’ha tis true.”
The new school year was starting soon. A lot of things were learned over the summer and now it was almost time to put them into practice.
