A Moment Between Friends (ATTN: Yiyu/Rennitz)

Jessica Freise
 

Yiyu stewed about her encounter with the Healer for a full day before she brought it to soemone's attention. That someone happened to be Rennitz, who's head was bent with hers over the book they were sharing in a far off corner of the Candidate barracks.

"Is there something *wrong* with me?"

It spilled out, surprising them both. Stress, Yiyu's nerves, were a scent in the air. The little brown flit stirred in response.

I'des grinned back, if uncertainly. "Really? That's interesting." he offered. "Sunstreath is more the kind to try and pose at his own reflection in the water." 

((And?)) 

-Stop.- 

"Faranth forbid he have a single dirty spot."

Sunstreath grumbled in response, but subsided.

N'met chuckled, and out on the rim Abartth echoed the sentiment. "That's not a problem, I'des. Abartth isn't the type to judge another dragon on whether they talk or not. He's a quiet dragon himself unless someone's in pain or upset, then he likes to tell stories. He's good at stories."

"Good man!" There was no sign of recognition from R'tal, though he clapped L'eo on the shoulder approvingly. "That would have been a tough move for an experienced pair, and the pair of you pulled it off brilliantly. Feeling okay? No pulled muscles?"

L'eo beamed under the approval, though he was still waiting expectantly for R'tal to remember him.  He was his son after all!  But it *had* been a tiring Fall, and even L'eo could forgive his father for taking a bit longer than he'd like to remember just who he was.  After all, R'tal had to keep track of so many people and dragons during the Fall; if L'eo was exhausted, it had to be a thousands times so for his dad.

"We're feeling sore, but Lanceth doesn't think he pulled anything.  We'll have the Healers check him over after all the people and dragons who *really* need them get seen to first."

"Sunstreath is a shade over average size for a bronze." I'des nodded. "He's a proud beast. Tell Abartth not to worry if Sunstreath isn't the first to initiate a conversation?" 

He paused. "I never really got into a Craft, but Harpers are interesting."

Smaller bronzes are a bit difficult since they're the same size as him, but we manage."

Although only a drill, Aulian had also come with the group. The Wherhold's Healer had brought his basic first aid bag in order to ensure that if there were any accidents, he was at least on hand. That and he liked to observe the drills when he could, that way he was able to take into account potential risk factors for the types of injuries that could be sustained in specific circumstances. That meant he could theoretically be prepared for the most likely outcome and ensure that he had the most relevant resources on hand.

He was taking notes when he realised that something was not entirely right and he looked up, concern darkening his blue eyes "What's going on?" he asked sharply, looking to the nearest person for an answer. He didn't have a wher of his own to pass anything along but clearly, something was happening.

Re: So why exactly DO you want to know? (Idri/S'ryll)

Nutmeg
 

It was interesting to hear him speak. Whilst she was sure that there were likely some who felt the same, she had never heard it voiced aloud with so much vehemence behind it. Just what was the extent of the relationship? Or rather, what had it been? She had been briefed of course and even knew of the Goldrider. It was well known that the young woman had not been one of those promiscuous types taking any and all to her furs. She had been discreet, selective and there was of course, talk of a select few favourites. Had he been one of them?

The account he gave was passionate, she would give him that. But it was largely misinformed - or rather, was the voice of someone who hadn't known just what had happened behind those closed doors. "Okay, so what I'm going to tell you stays in this room. And I'm only telling you this because it has become apparent that your interest isn't based entirely on your own. And I am going to warn you now, what I say is not pleasant, nor is it easy to hear."

Idri paused, giving herself a moment too.

"You're right, she tried. In the flightroom there was a belt dagger and she used it. But not effectively. You've seen the gloves she wear, no doubt. That is why. She was fellised at the Healer Hall and brought back to High Reaches where she spent the first few days in a fellis induced sleep. When she was brought out she was practically catatonic. Alive but unresponsive. With the exception of violent outbursts where she would slam her arms into walls, bed posts, you name it in an attempt to reopen her wounds. As a result, she had to be restrained." Idri's voice was softer now, but matter of fact and precise. Like she was carefully reading from the medical file that she had all but committed to memory. "If you were to ask her - and I am strongly recommending that you do not - she will not be able to tell you much about the first few days. Or even the first few weeks. Once she was conscious, she would not speak, she would not eat. We had to use a nasal feeding tube in order to keep her from starving..."

Idri paused, giving some of this time to sink in. "Before I continue, you need to understand that we were expressly ordered to keep her contained due to not knowing why the other gold was there. There were concerns that this was a deliberate act of sabotage and as a result, in the immediate aftermath there were some concerns that there might be... an attempt, or attempts... to finish what was started. This is why no one but the Weyrleaders and the Healers were allowed anywhere near her. We did not know who could be trusted." Another pause. "How much of this do you want to know?"

"New," she said briskly, pausing a moment to study the rising sun before she shifted the papers under her arm. Now she should ask something in return, shouldn't she?

"What about you?"

"No family. No one close. I have a few friends at the Weyr now, though. And some of them have whers." I'des answered honestly.

"Wills is right." I'des grumbled. "Think we should have just moved in with the Weyrlingmaster." 

 A pause. "He's a good strong flier. We want to get every little bit we can, after all. We'll fly as long as we have to."

"I'm a bronze rider, but I don't have rank, so I'd have more time to train the beast. I'm willing to put in as much time as possible." I'des responded. "I'm interested in a wher because on too of being a loyal guard, if trained and raised properly, a wher can be a faithful companion."

"No...thank you," she said, very politely, before shuffling the mass of paper into orders and exiting the barracks. Breakfast would improve her mood, or so she hoped.
