Eggs over Klah

Half Moon Bay Weyr - Hearth Nook
This smaller room is separated off the main living cavern. The focal point is a big stone hearth, which always has a couple pots of stew and klah bubbling over it. Thick carpet lines the entire space and the room is has several cushy chairs and sofas spread around. There are no electric lights here, only glow baskets to keep the cosy effect.


It is rather early in the day still chores haven’t started and neither is breakfast. Sitting in one of the stuffed chairs in the hearth nook off the side of the living cavern is Riohra who is currently staring at a curled up brown hatchling in his lap with a mix of awe and terror. He is holding perfectly still as he seems to be waiting for something.

Kassala comes in from the lower caverns, and has her kit with her. Seems the note was delivered! Looking around for Riohra, she finally spies the back of his head, and hurries over towards him, "Riohra? What's wrong?" She's got both the green flit with her, but in a pocket, is another flit, a blue one. Seems someone found it during the night, oddly enough. The things you might find in the hallway stumbling to the bathroom!

Riohra points down at the brown firelizard curled up in his lap saying "I think I broke it? I didn't mean too.. I just found the egg and was bring it to you cause you like them so much and then it broke and this little guy came out" he has bags under his eyes and there are few empty Klah pots next to him. Seems new parenting has taken another victim this last night.

Dropping her gaze to his lap, Kassala peers for a moment, "Broke him?" She wonders, only to chuckle quietly, "Did you feed him?" She wonders curiously. Well, the brown is asleep, so she's figuring he did manage that much at least. Of course, she looks from brown to blue, "I wonder if they were from the same clutch. I found his egg earlier.."

Riohra nods and exhales softly saying "yeah I fed him, that is why I asked for your kit" he holds up his hands with bite marks the size of the little maw saying "He is fast this one" he looks at her now and blinks with a bit of a blush "sorry if I woke you love, I just didn't know what to do when he stopped moving"

Kassala reaches down to brush a finger along the brown's back, "He's good. He's just full. Once they eat well, they tend to sleep for a while. They're just babies, so for a little while, all they'll want to do is sleep and eat." Leaning over, she kisses the top of Rio's head, chuckling, "Looks like he's chosen you though." No giving the brown away to her! HAHAH!

Riohra closes his eyes at her touch, however fleeting it is as he tries to absorb all the affection he can. He then looks down at the little charge saying "So it would seem, though for the life of me I can't understand why?" he winks at his lady love. Holding out his bit up hand to her to sit in a chair next to him "How have you been? it has gotten so busy I haven’t gotten a lot of time to see you" there is a look of guilt in his eyes as he admits he has been busy.

As he offers that bit of his chair, Kassala takes it to sit on, leaning in with her shoulder around his shoulder. Her kit is sat on the ground at their feet. "I'm okay. You?" she wonders, glancing aside at him before sighing, "Busy.. I'm not sure if I kept busier at the school or here more." Adjusting the small pouch, she settles then in her lap, blue and green having been fed and now sleeping away as well.

Riohra grins and reaches down to his own bag, oh what a joy it is to have long arms after his most recent growth spurt. "I am ok, went swimming again the other day and wasn't even afraid. Though again it wasn't by choice." He hands her a small box wrapped with a off white ribbon "So I know it is kind of late for our three month anniversary, but I figured you wouldn't mind it being a little late". He will look back down at the little brown in wonder while she deals with the gift.

"You did?" This is sort of amazing to her, for as long ashe was scared of the water. Kassala blinks, then sighs a little when he hands her over the gift, setting about unwrapping it. "I have you something, but it's in the dorm.. have you had a chance to try out the bow?" She questions, then goes back to untying the ribbon to unwrap the box.

Riohra grins and nods excitedly "Oh yeah, the draw on it is heavier than my old one so I am not as worried at snapping it." he will quickly nuzzle her shoulder when he is sure no one is looking saying "It is a bow fit for a Lord, thank you but you didn't have to". He will wink at her saying "I saw you were hunting game today, did you need to borrow my gear. Because my jacket always looks good on you"

"I'm glad that it works so well. I remembered how you were talking one day how you needed a new one soon.. and was hoping that I guess the poundage right for it." Kassala says, then shakes her head, "Count it as both an 'I love you' gift, mixed with anniversary.." She won't say Turnday, not yet, since she's got plans for that one! As he asks, she laughs softly, "No, though I do like your jacket, I will admit. Simply because it smells like you."

Riohra waggles his eyebrows and says "I could leave my clothes on your bed after the day if you just want my smell" She can feel that he has grown physically, now much taller and broader of muscle as she leans on him. "Kidding, but I do need to do laundry. Just when I think I have gotten rid of all the shiny stuff, I get fresh clothes that have glitter on them" he looks to the ceiling like he is questioning the universe.

"I don't want your smell THAT much.." Kassala teases him before laughing softly, "Glitter will be around forever. Especially as much as both you and I got on ourselves. Though I think you had it worse." It was on his bed and all as well, and she only got it on herself and clothing.

Riohra sighs in mock self-pity "I am always getting the worse of things, glitter, shoved off a pier, TWICE. And now I got a Firelizard that wants to eat me instead of dinner" He can't even finish that without breaking into his happy grin "But I got the best Girl and the best friends" he sighs happily and lays his head on her shoulder.

As the black box is unwrapped, Kassala ohs softly, "This is pretty!" She'll likely find room for it in her kit, a place she can store her ring at least, so people won't see it while they're candidates. Wrapping her arm about his shoulder, she chuckles softly, "And I the best guy.. and friends.. and flits."

Riohra grins and sighs "So I told you that we need to go clothes shopping right?" He reaches up to touch the tip if her fingers with his, he is careful as always but there is a sense of longing in that touch as well. He will smile at her "for the ceremony, with Niki and T'ana. I seem to have out grown all my nice clothes."

"Ceremony?" Kassala questions Riohra, glancing down at him, eve as her fingers lace with his lightly. She's become a little more bold, likely after being told by Sevran that the rules were against /sex/ not just casual touching! Ahem. "What ceremony?" The question is put forth before she flashes a bit of a grin, "I had noticed your pants were getting shorter, along with your sleeves.. "

Riohra grins and will let her be the bold one, he will never push her into something she isn't ready for. "They have decided that while they want to be weyrmated they also want to be wed. Which I know is weird for riders, but that is what they want. So they are having a small ceremony just a few friends and such." He will narrow his eyes at her playfully saying "how often do you look at my pants?"

"Oh… I.. that is…" Kassala sighs and smiles, "That's lovely. I'm happy for them." She'll have to tell them congratulations whenever she might get to see them! When asked, she looks innocent enough, "Me? Looking at your ass? Never.."

Riohra shrugs a bit when she says that "to bad, I hear it is nice, but I am always looking at yours so I never really notice." And that is why he has extra chores all the time, focus issues this one has. He will grin and look at her as he asks "You know I will follow you anywhere right? That you don’t have to settle on your dreams just to keep me?"

"I might have to argue with you there." Over who's ass is the best. To each their own, right? Kassala meets his gaze, brows furrowed a little before she asks him softly, "Where did that come from?" Head tilted, she kisses his forehead then offers him a smile, "My dream is having a family with you eventually, Riohra."

Riohra winks at her saying "oh you have the nicer one hands on…I mean down" he then looks at her with a soft gaze saying "I was talking with Elixyvette about how people are expected to do things for family and such. And I realized that I never told you that I want to support you in whatever you want to do. That no matter what your dream is I want to help you get there." he will nuzzle her cheek before adding "I don’t want us to end up like others I have seen while here. Those few who are happy but had to give up something so they could be. I don’t mind giving up things for you but I want you to never worry about limits"

Riohra winks at her saying "oh you have the nicer one hands on…I mean down" he then looks at her with a soft gaze saying "I was talking with Elixyvette about how people are expected to do things for family and such. And I realized that I never told you that I want to support you in whatever you want to do. That no matter what your dream is I want to help you get there." he will nuzzle her cheek before adding "I don’t want us to end up like others I have seen while here. Those few who are happy but had to give up something so they could be. I don’t mind giving up things for you but I want you to never worry about limits"

Kassala frowns a little more, "I've never had to give up anything so far, Riohra. I don't want you to give up anything either. We'll be good.. no worries." That's her, always optimistic!
Riohra looks at the frown and will quickly kiss her lips so it will go away, no sad Kassala for him, Nope nope. HE will grin and say "Of course we will, your the best thing to happen to me. You think I am letting you get away your crazier than I am" now there is a complement, or is it?

The kiss is delivered, quickly so, and Kassala ends up laughing a little at his comment, "I guess.." She winks and then settles back, her gaze falling upon the trio of flits snoozing, "We just need a pair of metallics and between us both, we'd have all the colors." Dare she be hinting at that?? Leave it to her, gotta catch them all, hmm?

Riohra grins saying "I choose you…for egg detail then" he looks down and nods saying "though I would like a red headed one before we become the crazy firelizard couple" that is right he said it…

Kassala peera t him, "Red headed one?" Wait, she's confused! Or something. The green awakens enough to chirp at her before stretching and then coiling back up against the blue. At least the two have taken to one another as well. It would be hard if they didn't get along!

Riohra looks at her in the eyes then glances up at her hair then back to her before turning away to smile. She will get it she is smart, he offers her some warm klah to drink to help wake her up.

Kassala blinks, then ohs, blushing a little after he looks at her in such a way. "Oh.. hmm.. right.." Shaking her head, she sticks her tongue out at him before a yawn escapes. "I think I'm going to lay down some more. You coming? You should be safe to nap in your bed for a little bit before he wakes again." The flit, that is.
Riohra is loathed to untangle himself but will nod and reach down to lift the little brown firelizard into the crook of his arm. "Sleep sounds like a good idea" he reaches down and waits for Kassala to get up first as she has more sleeping flits that he does to manage.

Kassala manages easily enough - hers are tucked into a large pouch that makes carrying them easier. After standing, she reaches for the strap to her kit, to hall it up as well before they head back to the dorm to find a few hours of sleep, hopefully!
