Tag: V'ric, Alassiel
Dark eyes danced with happiness as he listened to what Vare said. It was nice to know that the young man WANTED to be in his Wing. While A'ric knew it would be absolutely amazing for his cousin to be in his Wing, part of him knew he had to face the fact that there was also a sizable chance that V'ric would NOT be in his Wing. Unfortunately they had to deal with the harsh reality, which was that there was a greater chance the newly bonded rider would be placed somewhere else. Either way though, A'ric was still proud of his cousin, no matter what Wing they were placed in. Smirking he just shook his head playfully and teased his cousin a bit, "Keep that attitude up, and I'll just start calling you Behemoth."
For a moment, he was going to tell his cousin that, try and let him know not to get his hopes up too much, but then Alassiel spoke, and A'ric could see the concern in the other man's face and that caused a slight frown to appear on his own face as well. Nodding in agreement with the newly bonded brown rider, A'ric said, "He does have a point. To her, it's always been you, and there was never any question in her mind. Plus, what you thought MIGHT happen, didn't. I wouldn't let it run around your mind to long. It's not good to dwell on thoughts like that. Just know that she is here, and you can love her and take care of her. That's all that matters now."
A'ric smiled softly and after a moment said, "Ok, I think it's about time we moved on to a happier topic, do you both agree?"
Isiana smiled softly at Finn, and just nodded as she spoke, not saying anything for the moment. The Garnet rider didn't talk about it much, but the gold rider knew that her and Bastian were still dealing with everything that had happened. Maybe she shouldn't have brought up anything about babies? Now might not be the best time ever to talk about it with someone who had experienced loss the way that Finn had.
As Finn spoke though, the young woman couldn't help but chuckle. "That food you brought was most certainly a life saver, and it was nice to be able to just talk. I wouldn't mind if you did that again. I don't want you to think you HAVE to, but if you do, I am certainly not going to object."
Looking where Finn pointed, Isiana could not help but chuckle softly to herself at the excitement her friend showed. Being dragon less was not something Isiana even wanted to think about, but she also knew that it was something that could happen at any point. It saddened her to think about it, and she honestly wished she never had to, but it was just part of being a dragon rider. Smiling the young woman eagerly nodded in agreement. "Im glad. Everyone seems pleased with the clutch. It makes me think it was funny to get all nervous about all the bad things that COULD happen, and then watch everything turn out ok."
Isiana grabbed two more glasses of wine as the servers came around again and handed one to Finn. "A toast, to the clutch, and the joy it brings to Atricis!"
