Re: Cacaphony of flits All Flits

Out of the blue, a small, very young green flit appeared beside the small blue that was working his way down between the herd beast's ribs. Dahlia was also creeling in hunger, and paused to berate her clutchmate before catching a bit of the meat that was being tossed toward Star.

Magpie responded to Star with another happy warble, accepting th long piece, even as he started tearing at the heart, managing to drench himself and the vicinity in partially congealed and clotting blood as he flicked his wings.

Ishi eyed him then shrugged, "truthfully I just eat whenever I can, you never know when an emergency is going to come in." She frowned at her own words, that made her sound like she was always working, which she was, but it was only because she didn't know anyone.  "Lunch is normally larger because it's harder to sleep for me on a larger meal but it depends on shifts and stuff."

“This is stupid.”  She muttered to herself as she rounded the corner and felt herself running into something very solid.  Well someone very solid.  “I’m so sorry.”  She flushed as she stood back and looked upwards.  Why was everyone taller than her?

"Mmm." And as he hadn't been *forbidden* to look at her as a possible new youngling, Cremsden was eying her with interest. "What's that you're reading, kiddo? One of ours?"

Roryn gave a grin “yep. I started reading this one- which was on the uses of numbweed, then got sidetracked on why numbweed isn’t used for breaks- which is because it’s topical which is why fellows is better for the initial stages of healing before weaning off and then I wanted to know what the numbweed plant looks like and how it’s made. Which is what I was reading now.”
 

"And all of that," Cremsden said more sternly, "fresh from the book." He was moving now, opening cupboards to pull out pen, ink and fresh hide. "Books are expensive and if they have hundreds of apprentices pawing over them constantly they don't last," he said firmly. "I've no objection to youngsters straying in looking for a bit of knowledge but you want to work you do it by the same rules as our own apprentices, you understand? Pen and ink is *here*, fresh hide is *here* and if you're not looking up something where the patient is at serious risk if you don't get back to them immediately you make your own copy and refer back to that.And if you're pulling a book out not already on a desk, you *ask* first -- find me or a journeyman. Are we clear?" 

Aryn's presence had either been forgotten or considered not important just now.
 

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.

Blinking a little at the rapid instructions, Ishkana processed them. Three klahs and snacks, and sweetener first. Then bluerider, klah, patient history. Take notes. "Yes sir, got it." She hurried off and poured three mugs of the steaming strong klah they generally had in the infirmary, putting the mugs, a bowl of sweetener and a spoon on a tray. Next she loaded a plate with small meatrolls, fruit and a small piece of cheese before adding them to the tray and carrying the whole lot to the room Cremsden had indicated.

Though depending on what it's for you may want to use a paddle. Fellis sedates -- you need to remember that if you're using it, though you won't be prescribing yourself for a good while.

"Another two or three Turns?" Ishkana digested that information carefully. "I thought it was all supposed to have happened by now. People back at the hold thought it should have."

There were some things though that she really wasn't sure of - one of them being her. And learning healing meant she knew a little more than before. Enough to know that something wasn't quite right.

When she found a relatively quiet time, she approached one of the more senior healers for some advice. "Vashinta, mam? Do you have a little time so I could speak with you please?" she asked tentatively. This wasn't going to be easy, but it needed doing.

"So you got sent away?" Ishkana's assumption immediately struck a chord. Being sent away could happen to anyone, even dragonriders, it seemed. But she couldn't remember having done anything to be sent away for. Maybe she'd done something and, because she was so young, she just couldn't remember.

Alyx hadn't paid much attention at all to people moving past her. Hadn't even known they were there. But when a young man's voice sounded slightly behind her, she blinked, wiped her eyes once more, as she turned to face him. 

"I..guess I was. I didn't really realize." Another wipe of her eyes, already red. She realized that this young man was a bit younger than her, but had candidate knots on, same as her, though she was sure she'd seen him around, she couldn't think where or when. 

"Sorry, I..hadn't meant to disturb anyone." On her shoulder, a dark bronze flit was cuddled close to her neck. Though he was distracted from their shared grief by the other person and chirped inquisitively.

Teyra did keep her eyes closed, and finally once all the mud was gone, she raised her head again, and smiled up at him. "Thanks for the help." Though wet her hair was now obviously very blonde, which provided a striking look with her golden colored eyes. Stakarth near them dropped to her belly in the water, creating a small sloshy wave.

Lali flipped his wings closed over his back. As if trying to get the last word about the subject.

Teyra closed her eyes, ignoring the scolds. She wasn't a little girl anymore, and sometimes Lali didn't seem to realize that. But he was a good flit, and well trained other than his scolding. She swam a little closer, she was good at treading water, she had gotten used to it a long time ago as she'd always been pretty slight, and when others were still on the sand, she was not.

Stakarth, well she had no such reservations and splashed right into the lake. Proud as could be. Once she was mostly submerged, a smallish blue flit appeared above the pair, chittering at both of them in a most disapproving fashion. If a dragon could be said to roll her eyes, the skinny little green did so. She ducked her head under the water and blew air out as bubbles at the scolding blue.

Teyra, who actually could, did roll her eyes, then looked over at T'od. "Yea they have all kinds of scents, even some kinda piney ones. And don't mind Lali, he's been my protector for ages and doesn't much like when Stakarth and I go getting all dirty."

T'od couldn't fault his logic, which was no surprise,so he agreed and the pair winged their way down to the lake. One of their preferred spots was already taken by a number of splashing and cavorting young dragons, so they went a little further than normal. Coming down by a green pair, whose names T'od wasn't sure of, he waved anyway as he removed Awsonth's harness.

"Lovely day for it, isn't it?" he called across to the green's rider.

Roryn gave a grin “yep. I started reading this one- which was on the uses of numbweed, then got sidetracked on why numbweed isn’t used for breaks- which is because it’s topical which is why fellows is better for the initial stages of healing before weaning off and then I wanted to know what the numbweed plant looks like and how it’s made. Which is what I was reading now.”
 

"And all of that," Cremsden said more sternly, "fresh from the book." He was moving now, opening cupboards to pull out pen, ink and fresh hide. "Books are expensive and if they have hundreds of apprentices pawing over them constantly they don't last," he said firmly. "I've no objection to youngsters straying in looking for a bit of knowledge but you want to work you do it by the same rules as our own apprentices, you understand?
