Blind Date - Parker | Cal/Ao'mek

Despite being new, this dining hall is very similar to the one back at old Atricis, giving a familiarity to the new Weyr. It is one large, central cavern carved out from the side of the cliff with many tables of varying sizes and seat numbers. The kitchens are attached, and there is a set of stairs leading down into the lower caverns.

"Well, then, m'lady, if it is all the same to you then I think I feel best acting like myself. Which, I warn you, runs a slew of gambits between proper and more relaxed."

The distraction of conversation was much appreciated, giving her a chance to keep away from the food on her plate. It would take some time for her to warm up to the meal, especially in such pleasant and polite company. His joyful demeanour did set her at ease, as did his gentle tenor voice as he spoke on.

"As long as you promise to act the way you want to."

"I will, I promise," she replied. Blue eyes regarded him before she smiled and turned back to her plate, if only to move her food about without much progress. But he did not seem to notice her absent appetite, while her the detail she dared to share was warmly received by him, leaving her to blush and smile as she glanced away. She would not go as far as to call herself "unique" or "genuine", but it was sweet that he thought of her like that.

His own bit of information about himself came as no surprise to Amuderudalya, and she could not help but chuckle at his response. "She didn't tell me that, but I can feel that about you. It is surprising how many people live with such a dark cloud over them, but it's refreshing to see that is not the case with you." Though at the mention of Solai, it did make Amuderudalya slightly nervous. "Ummm... if you don't mind me asking, what did Solai tell you about me?"

Ao'mek's own plate of food was largely ignored in favor of good conversation. Yes, they were on a dinner date, but he liked to think that the date was more important than the dinner. He could eat anytime so he'd much rather focus on speaking with the lovely woman that was now in front of him.

"She didn't tell me that, but I can feel that about you. It is surprising how many people live with such a dark cloud over them, but it's refreshing to see that is not the case with you."

"Isn't it though?" Ao'mek asked with genuine surprise. "I've never understood how people can go through life with so much negativity. Life is too short to do that. I mean...just look at nature and how diverse and magnificent it is." He went on to say with a voice that was honestly full of awe. "I mean, I know that bad things happen, but if that's all a person ever dwells on then it makes for a pretty miserable existence. Seems sort of silly to me." He'd been asked before in the past if he ever got tired of being so positive and optimistic, but he honestly never did.

"Ummm... if you don't mind me asking, what did Solai tell you about me?"

Ao'mek had taken a bite of food, so he quickly finished chewing it before he answered. "She said that you are a very gentle and quiet person. You seem to have a knack for reading people and how they are feeling. Oh! And she said that you make some of the best cookies ever. If asked nicely, of course." He answered her honestly. "Mind if I ask what she said about me?" There was a part of him that was curious if Solai had mentioned the fact that they had once been friends with benefits, but it really wasn't important.

At the sound of the bluerider's agreement, Amuderudalya could not help but smile brightly back at him. But was that too forward? Worried she might suddenly spur any sort of sense of uncertainty from him, the baker dipped her eyes down to her food, if only in an attempt to conceal her enjoyment of that which he said, her concurrence with his sympathy over the melancholic and morose. It truly was relieving to feel and hear someone agree with with her. Granted, Amuderudalya was herself a pessimist by nature, it did not mean she enjoyed basking in dark thoughts and dismal sentiments.

The smile broadened as he spoken on. It was sweet of Solai, really, but completely unnecessary to paint her in such a light. However, it had earned Amuderudalya at seat at Ao'mek's table tonight, and he seemed like such a pleasant man, so she supposed she could not be too upset at the greenrider.

"Mind if I ask what she said about me?"

A coy smile played upon her broad lips, to which she concealed it with a sip of water. "A few things," she teased after wetting her palette. Blue eyes turned back up to regard him once more, only to dash away with a blushing and a chuckle. "She said you were sweet, obnoxiously cheerful-" the way the baker rolled her eyes playfully indicated what she thought of that "-not that I believe such a thing is possible." A white grin escaped her. "She said you were tragically single, though... I have a feeling those are her words, not yours. And... you are from Walled and use to have a prominent rank, though... I can't remember what it was, my apologies. This is still quite a new world for me, and I have not yet entirely familiarised myself with it."

She hoped he would clarify, if only so she could better understand where he came from and who he was.

The only thing that Dalya would feel from Ao'mek was merely more simple delight that they had found some common ground in something that was important to him. Yes, not looking at everything with a sour face was rather important to him. Especially considering the situation they were in now, being on a date, finding any sort of common ground was a great thing. So still she would only feel happiness from him.

"A few things. She said you were sweet, obnoxiously cheerful-" the way the baker rolled her eyes playfully indicated what she thought of that "-not that I believe such a thing is possible."

Ao'mek had taken a drink so he politely swallowed and wiped his mouth before responding. His own eyes twinkled with a hint of an imp hidden in there as he spoke. "Oh ho, dear lady. Stick with me and I will likely prove the impossible to you." Obviously he was being playful and teasing back, though there was a hint of truth to his words. He'd been told to his face before that he was annoying too positive...even by some of his dearest friends.

"She said you were tragically single, though... I have a feeling those are her words, not yours. And... you are from Walled and use to have a prominent rank, though... I can't remember what it was, my apologies. This is still quite a new world for me, and I have not yet entirely familiarised myself with it."

Again he couldn't help but chuckle a little and nod. "Yes, tragically...it's true that those are her words. That's, of course, in no way meant to be a slight to you. You are a stunning, lovely woman." He certainly didn't want to offend her or anything. "Yes, born and bred there, though as far as living I've bounced back and forth a bit. I grew up in Walled, impressed here in New Atricis. Then, after graduation decided to move back home to join the Legion. My rank was Haraldur, which basically means third in command. The highest rank a male rider can get." He smiled in understanding, though there was pride in his achievement there wasn't arrogance. "Nothing to forgive. Our worlds are vastly different. The Legion is certainly one of the larger differences between North and South. If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer. I may have a few myself for you of the North since I'm not totally familiar with it either."
