Pleased to have his undivided attention, the opal settled next to Tlamehath and decided to listen in to what was going on with her rider for a bit. She had her man for the evening, now she wanted to know whether her rider would see sense and grab hold of her own for the night. From the feeling she was receiving though, it didn't seem as if it was going so well for him, and she grimaced inwardly, sighed even, and she turned to the blue and nuzzled against him. There are times when I don't know what to do about J'on... perhaps you can distract me for a bit while your rider tries to speak some sense to mine? He seems like a very knowledgeable rider.
J'on nodded, feeling some relief from everything after coming out to Ao'mek. He realized then that, Desdomondyth aside, the bluerider was the first person he'd come to and said outright "I like men" to. Though he supposed, from the feeling of things, it had been obvious if he knew about his attraction to Fox. He flushed again and rubbed the back of his neck. "Is it... is it really that obvious? How I feel about Fox?" He glanced towards him, saw K'rios looking his way, and quickly turned away. "I don't... I don't think I can be... I don't know, Ao'mek. I just don't know. It's all so deep here," he tapped his temple. "I'm not trying to be frustrating, I just can't get it out of me. I'm trying, but every time I'm alone with him, or think about being alone with him, I panic."
K'rios wasn't really sure what to say at that point, mainly because he'd never really had an issue with relationships. He'd always had the opposite issue. How was he supposed to tell Fox "Just go for him" when it was apparent that he didn't want to go through the methods that K'rios himself would usually employ? He scratched his chin, and lifted his shoulders. "At this point, I'm not sue what you can do, but I can tell that you really care about him. Being patient at this point is the only thing I can recommend. I mean, you wouldn't do any of the shit that I would do - sneaky things, try and get him jealous, try and push him towards you, things like that. I'm almost positive, in fact, that you wouldn't take moves like that. So I'm just going to say this again - you're either going to have to take drastic measures, take a step forward and grab the bull by the horns, or just continue to wait for him. Because I'm going to let you in on a little secret, Fox. Something everyone in the Wing already knows." He leaned in close, glanced in J'on's direction and smirked when the opalrider was caught glancing Fox's way. When he darted away, he continued. "We all know that he has the hots for you. Whether he admits it to you now or not, don't give up. He likes you, there's always going to be a chance for you."
