Nizi kept a smile on her face as the bronze rider went on to explain his own family dynamics. Nodding at a few points in his story, the Pyrite rider felt her smile shift into a knowing grin. It seemed that luck had given her a co-conspirator tonight if Niz could play her cards right. It would be nice to have a new set of eyes and new ideas for her pranks... even if she had to tone them down a bit as not to disappoint a ranking rider. His oath to keep pestering the Holders set off a happy chuckle in Nizi's chest as she raised her hand to mimic his words.
When Fox took her comments about her status as a Pyrite rider in a different light, Niz was confused at first. Did others really think that she wasn't content with her role at the weyr? She knew she and Farrie weren't as popular or as known as a higher pairing would be. To be honest she liked that little fact. It helped her hide more than a few times when her pranks went awry. Just as she was to open her mouth and correct the man, Fox spoke up again about not having enough ale. Blinking at the sudden change in topics, Nizi reacted without much thought. Flagging down a half-familiar face and offering the youngster the well-known signal for more to drink, Nizi didn't offer her thoughts until the youth was on his way.
"It's not that Farrie and I are unhappy, bronze rider," She started with a grin trying to hide behind a stern look. "It's more that most folk don't know what to do with us. There aren't many pairs like us. Some days it feels like we're just as rare as a queen pair... except no one expects us to lead. Faradeth and I are content to keep to our playful role. Good for morale, you know," She finished just as the kid returned with a cool pitcher of ale.
