Kassia just rolled her eyes. "I give up."

It wasn't intentional that Sengroth landed near where Foreth was being bathed.  It was just where he always landed and, like normal, he sent a distainful glare toward the water, not acknowledging the gold until after he'd once more expressed his distaste for the water.  Huffing the brown simply asked, {{Ye 'ave any dirt YE donnae need?  I'll be needin' it when Mine is NAE lookin'.}}

Kl'ryn raised an eyebrow at his brown at least catching onto the the brown was up to something and the brown bulk blocked out most of his vision of the gold.  Peering around the brown head he quickly recognized Foreth.  "Hello, Weyrwoman.  How has your day been so far?"

A Sulking Sun atten: Foreth/Kassia/Any

"Come on, stop being such a grump." The words were said with their own grumble as Kassia added more soap to Foreth's side.

Re: What's the Number? (Qioyon, Candidates)

Kashara came in and had been listening for a few minutes at the speculations. She snorted as Qioyon asked his question. "There won't be a gold egg, there's way too many golds here already. What are we waging again?" She spoke with an air of authority, not nearly as superior as if it'd been her sister. But then she'd been either having a VIP seat at her mom's side or Standing as a Candidate since she was born. "Oh, and, I'm Kashara, by the way." She wasn't as familiar with Qioyon and one or two of the others.


Congratulations! atten: Delysia/Razelth/Kassia

It was a few days after Razelth's first flight and things were starting to settle down at the Weyr. Foreth was still sulking, but Kassia was excited for the pair. As soon as she knew she'd have some free time, she headed down to Delysia's office, Brogan at her side, and peaked her head in.

"Would you and Razelth care to have a picnic with me at the lake?" she asked.

"Oh it's not too far, we follow this stream, till ya see that big hill down there?" He pointed out in front of them, where the land humped up into a short high hill. 

"It's just on the other side of that hill. Everything there drops off after that hill, this stream's got a pretty waterfall, and part of the rock there looks like a dragon."

Lerian didn't say anything, but there was a nice little path to the bottom. No need to worry about things like slipping and falling. Though once to the bottom they could have lunch, then he wanted to explore the cliff face.

"Of course I do. I'd not have chosen it other wise. Of course part of the reason I like to cook is I rather like to eat. So I wanna see if things are good, and if they are, well I like sharing with my friends. I don't ever wanna be in a spot where I can't find something good to eat."

Usually Lerian wasn't so serious about things. But he remembered fear, and hunger, and when there wasn't enough to go around how things often were dropped for those who were deemed as less. Not that it had happened much to him at Arolos, but he knew that it existed in the world, and he'd do what he could to fight that. Even if all he could do was offer someone a meal. Of course as a rider he could do more, and would.

Re: A Walk to Remember Alyx/Any

Alyx
 

Alyx was quiet, as she stripped out of most of her clothing. Like many people around here, she wore things easy to swim in under her clothing. Though she was short, and a bit stocky of build, the young woman was in no way heavy. Her body showed that she worked hard, that she took her physical fitness seriously, she waded into the water as Ardy flew about her head making sounds of encouragement at the curly haired woman. Once she was deep enough to push off, she did, at least in the water, no one would see if tears came.

"Alright." She was agreeing to the race, but first ducked her head beneath the water, getting her mass of black curls to slick back out of her face.

"I do try." He grinned over his shoulder, then ducked sideways onto another smaller track. "Watch yer feet Almira, there's some roots through here." 

Sandy chirped up ahead of them, and Lerian after a dragonlength or so, turned onto the banks of a small stream, so they'd not be lacking in water either. Now there was room to walk side by side, and he slowed up a bit.

"I like citrus too, I wanna pick some on our way back I think it'd be really yummy as part of a sauce for herdbeasts. Maybe over those steaks that they pound flat and bread."

She didn't have much trouble keeping up with his near jog, but shifted Dahlia to the crook of her arm so she'd have at least one hand free. "Mmm, I like the smell of citrus."

Lerian grinned widely, and ran back the way he'd come, grabbing up a bag he'd packed with a decent lunch of loaves of bread, a chunk of cheese, and some left over meat from before. Slinging it over his shoulder, he waved a hand towards a slight path through the brush. 

"Come on then, there's a great place to have lunch, just before we get there. There's even a citrus tree."  Lerian set off at a brisk pace, but not quite running. Sandy, as the boy ducked under a limb dropped off his shoulder and flew ahead caroling happily.

Re: Fancy Seeing You Here Attn Zy'fen

Swimming wasn't quite a bath, but Zy planned on staying out of the water. ((Go fishing with Robith if you like. I'll just lay on the grass and watch.)) Zy stepped back after he removed the flight straps, and sat down on a patch of soft grass. "Yeah, you have a point there. I think maybe I'll lay back and take a nap while you splash around."

Aryn bit back a grin at the pair. As much as she wanted her daughter to sharding wait- she had a feeling that this healer would look after her daughter.  

Roryn gave a quick nod, staring at the hide and ink, fingers flicking at her side in excitement. “So you don’t /mind/ I’m here?” She asked. “I’ll follow the rules and make my own copies. Copying helps me remember better anyway.” She added, hands itching to write down what she learnt.

"Agreed."  Kirene said without hesitation.  She had nothing against work, or extra work, and was perfectly willing to do the work if she ended up getting it.

"Hmm."  Qioyon was willing to accept the challenge, but didn't really know what to guess.  He glanced around the table, wanting to see what else people would guess first.  "What about anyone else?  Anyone else have guesses?  Or maybe bets?"

Tareg refused to answer if it was his da or not. He didn’t want to be sent back- and would rather just not talk then tell the truth. 

As his boot started being unlaced, Tareg resisted the urge to tug it back. Sure there were more holes in the boot then boot any more- but it was his. “If’n you unlace the rope around it, it the boot’ll fall off.” He finally offered. Truth be told- if the ground didn’t get so hot, he would have discarded the boot a while ago.


"Ah, is that the trick to it?" Cremsden said, doing as he was told. Off came the boot, and he handed it up to Tareg just as there was a thud at the door. "And that will be our klah delivery," he said, not turning to look to see if Ishkana had opened the door. "Come on in, sweetheart."
