...I'm pretty sure I couldn't have. I think I didn't start menstruating until later that year. In any case, I would have been far too young to be having a baby, and I'm not sure how my body would have liked it.

But if I'd had the child, s/he would now be as old as or older than I was when I'd given birth to him/her, and s/he'd already be fen if I'd had anything to do with his/her raising. Aunt and Uncle-Fayoumis probably would have adopted the kid, because I would have been far too young to properly raise a kid, and Aunt-Fayoumis has always wanted children.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
