The relief from dropping the family conversation could been seen in his eyes. It was something that he really didn't want to talk about on the first meeting, but at first, it was the only thing that he could think of. It was difficult to even try and talk to their father. Speaking of, he needed to send Shell to Igen with a letter for Surieka, just to kind of attempt to stay in touch. But enough of that family stuff, right? Now it was talk about professions and ranks, something that Sul'tek loved to talk about, and it seemed that K'rios loved to talk about it as well. That was a good thing that they could have in common, right?
"Yes, it would be hard for someone to go and run off now wouldn't it."
It was meant to be a joke, and he even tried to crack a smile with the words. But the humorless part of him just couldn't believe that he had said that. Even his brown, who was eavesdropping still, was practically roaring with laughter at the attempt of a joke. Sul'tek needed more practice if he was going to try to joke, that much was really clear, and probably to everyone by now. But the joke was also an attempt to try and get rid of the nerves that he had. Never has he had them before, but right now, he couldn't even explain as to why.
"I am sure that there are candidates out there who are determined to be an ass. I know that there are wingriders like that."
The thought went back to when he was on Igen. Sure, he had been a Wingthird, but there were still the Wingriders, and even some Wingthirds and up who were just plain asses to be an ass. Something that they seemed to think came with the territory of their rank. He picked up his fork then and loaded it with some food while thinking. He thought so much on K'rios and his job. The man seemed to love it, even if it seemed...odd... to Sul'tek. But each person liked what they liked.
"I don't know if Basarolth would be good with candidate who wouldn't want to listen." Oh sure, blame it on me you wherry's ass.
Basarolth had the right of it. The brown would probably do amazingly with the candidates, it was Sul'tek who didn't seem to know the right things to say around them, or how to even control them. But he was also privy on getting his old rank back, and there was no way he could do that as an Assistant Candidatemaster.
But perhaps that could be something that he could think on later? Perhaps if something were to happen? Let's just keep that in mind. "But that doesn't mean that it wouldn't be doable in the future. Basarolth might end up wanting to be around candidates rather than wingriders."
His words were thoughtful as he continued to eat in between conversations.
