Becoming Familiar Again (In A Way) - [ tag ] Kate/Isiana

Not the large stone caverns that Weyr people are used to, these are buildings built on the top of the cliff, sometimes referred to as the Weyr Cliff. These buildings are all the same size, with multiple apartments for dragonriders to live in in each building. Because of space constraints, dragons sleep in large pavilions built around the dragonrider apartments.

She chuckled herself and nodded, agreeing with that. It would be difficult not to eat everything that was set out for them, especially when it all looked - and smelled - so good. Dirce hadn't eaten very much the night before for whatever reason, and now she was hungry more than usual. "I typically eat quite a bit as it is, so I anticipate we're going to have a trial saving some of this up. We may have to treat ourselves with some fresh pastries from the kitchens. Think we can talk the staff there into giving us some - or maybe a bit of fresh bread - when we're done?"

Then she started to grin. "I think we could." The look on her face became a touch devious perhaps. "I don't use them very often," she started, looking around as though someone else might hear her and try to argue, which she would call bullshit on. "but I've noticed there are perks to having rank. Like having the bakers throw fresh pastries at you when you hit the kitchens at the right time. I've... been learning when those times are on purpose." She flushed and dipped her head, perhaps a little ashamed for doing something so minor like that. "But its really the only thing I've taken advantage of since graduation. The rest of the time... it truly makes me uncomfortable pushing my weight around unless its required of me." Especially since they would't know if Sandalphonth would hold out when it came to fertility until she rose.

It actually always amazed Isiana how much she, and any other woman could eat, and still not look like they weighed a ton. All she could think was that it was pretty much all thanks to the work they did as dragon riders. They burned up whatever energy they got from their food doing their chores and taking care of their other responsibilities. Chuckling she nodded at the other young woman and said,”Well, I have to admit that I do the same thing when it comes to stuff like this. I have a soft spot for sweets, even though I know I shouldn’t eat to much of them, I can just never seem to get enough of them.” Well that much was true, and anyone that really knew her would back her up on it. Grinning at the idea that the zultanite rider had, and grinned, a bit foolishly actually. Eagerly she nodded, ”Well, we can try and charm them into doing it, but I’m not sure if it would actually work. Even if it doesn’t work though, I’m still more than eager to give it a try.”

Isiana could not suppress a chuckle as Dirce spoke once more, and she found herself wondering why she had never tried to do anything like that. Sure, she wasn’t really one to abuse her power or anything like that. Not that she had all that much, but she knew she did have a little, bring a Gold rider and all. ”There is nothing wrong with that in my opinion. You aren’t doing anything violent or wrong or anything. Honestly, I’m finding that I am a bit jealous that I never thought of it myself.”

Taking the last bite of her pastry, Isiana then finished her klah before turning to her partner for the day. ”Well, as much as I hate to say it, we should probably get a move on. We don’t want to have to be finishing chores in the dark or anything like that. Then after we are done, we can go try our hand at getting some more of these amazing goodies.”

She chuckled and grinned at that, glad that she would have herself a partner in crime for this. She was eager to see what they'd be able to fetch from the kitchens, if anything at all, but perhaps with the two of them together, they'd be able to actually get away with something? The thought was a most pleasing one, and she decided it was something that suited them both, that seemed fetching enough. "We'll definitely have to see. If we get them both, who knows - they won't be able to resist us at the same time!" She tried to give off a fierce face, but considering she had a partial cheek full of pastry, it didn't exactly come off that way and she ended up laughing in the end.

After calming down, she nodded and figured Isiana was right. She never did anything violent, never did anything wrong, didn't twist fingers or toes or arms. She simply took advantage of when the fresh pastries were on and allowed - didn't force, but allowed - the bakers to give her things. Nothing wrong with that, right? "If you'd like, when we're done, I'll write down all the best times to head to the kitchens, especially at night. Sometimes I get cravings for nibbles when I'm working and they're especially generous when I bring this fact up..."

But in the end, the goldrider was right - they had work to do, loathe as she was to leave the food and drinks behind. She supposed they'd be back, and even better, they'd eventually get to get some fresh things to enjoy. She brushed her fingers free of flakes and finished off her klah before straightening up the little area in front of her, not wanting to leave any sort of mess in Isiana's apartment while she was there. "I'm ready to set out when you are. Just lead the way and I'll follow."

As it turned out, Dirce's grin was very infectious, and made Isiana not be able to stop grinning either. It just seemed to be that type of day today, and the Gold rider found herself happy about that. The dark haired woman did have to admit that that this other woman did seem like she would make a great friend. It would be nice to be able to just go off with another young woman her age, wouldn’t it? It would indeed be nice since she mostly spent her time with the “boys” so to speak. Chuckling a bit louder ha she had been, Isiana covered her mouth and then said, ”No, I guess they probably wouldn’t be able to resist the two of us at the same time. Maybe separately, yes, but most certainly not both at the same time.” Dark eyes shone with silent laughter and also a bit of mischief as she thought about the reactions of the kitchen workers if they did that. It would be priceless to say the least.

Thankfully, the two of them got themselves a bit calmed down from their chuckles and their plans. Isiana felt as though she hadn’t been a bit “crazy” like that in a while, not even with Lor. While she would never admit it out loud, she did enjoy being a bit goofy every now and then. Usually she was only like that around Lor, not someone she really didn’t know all that well. Dirce seemed like a nice enough person though, so she guessed that was why she was on with being a bit more open. Grinning again she said, ”Having the best times to go would be great! Then I won’t have to wonder. Plus if I’m going to start doing that, it will certainly help to have that kind of inside information.”

Grinning a bit, she could imagine that the kitchen help were probably happy to see that people enjoyed their food, so they were eager to help those people out and give them some more of that great food. Grinning she said, ”Well, that would be great if you could do that. Sounds like that is some really good information to have for when I start sneaking down there myself.” Honestly, until today she hadn’t even really considered the possibility. Now though, she thought it would be kind of fun to give t a try and see what it was all about.

At the mention of getting to work, she couldn’t stop herself from drowning ever so slightly. Nodding she finished what she had left and then got up, putting the dishes aside to be cleaned later once she was done with her other chores. Once they were ready to go she said, ”Well, I guess we should go see how all the injured are doing, see if there is anything we could possibly do for them.” While she knew they wouldn’t be able to do much for them medically, they could maybe make them a meal or just talk with them and entertain them. While she wasn’t overly excited about it, she knew that it was a good thing to do, and she was grateful for he opportunity to help them in some way.

Opening the door she looked at Dirce with a small smile. ”After you.”
