It had been a long time since Issormoth seen the dragon belonging to Lerina's mother, long enough now that the brown forgot all about the green so even if he had been awake when she arrived, Issormoth wouldn't have recognized her. The voice of Zenjarth did rouse him however, causing the brown to open his eyes as he listened.
The way Zenjarth expressed his wish he would understand the instructions had the brown feeling slightly insulted. He didn't think his sire meant it as an insult however but still, it did put him in a bit of a snit over it. <Well, since you put it that way, perhaps your hope will be lost.>
Issormoth responded. He didn't wait for Zenjarth to respond however before he focused on waking his girl up.
Lerina was asleep but hadn't been sleeping long when she felt Issormoth's mind trying to wake her. Forever tuned to her brown even in sleep Lerina was awake instantly. During the time they lived on their own after escaping Igen and before travelling South Lerina and Issormoth had to be constantly alert for other riders and other dangers. Even being in the safety of New Atricis for all this time didn't break her of the habit.
Did Zenjarth tell you what father wanted?
Lerina asked as she climbed out of bed and splashed cold water on her face.
<No, just that it was important,>
came the reply. Issormoth had sat up in his pavilion, eyes sharp and surveying the area. Mostly he just looked towards his sire. From where he was he couldn't see L'van's apartment but he felt no inclination to fly over and see what was going on himself. With a little patience he'll find out through Lerina and that was quick enough for the brown.
It didn't take Lerina long to dress and make her way to L'van's apartment. Once there she did as instructed, knocking three times then opening the door. "Hello father, what is this all about?" Lerina called out even as she entered the apartment.
Evika had settled herself into L'van's apartment, still dazed by how different New Atricis was so far from what she knew. To know her daughter had made it here to be with L'van and safe from prosecution solely because she Impressed a magnificent brown was a relief. Now her family was safe, since Evakita was with her Weyrmate who had transferred to another Weyr not long after Lerina escaped.
She had already hugged L'van and introduced him to her youngest daughter Shiava who hadn't wanted to stay in the poisonous atmosphere of Igen any longer now that she had a chance to escape for good. Introducing L'van to her 2 Turn old son had been easy enough, the toddler simply clung to his mother and stared wide-eyed at L'van. Evika was about to ask L'van if he had a cot to lay Lervesel down and see if she could get the boy to sleep when there was a knock on the door. Excitement rushed through Evika and despite how tired she felt she rose to her feet and shifted Lervesel to one arm even though he was getting too big to be carried.
"Lerina!" Evika called out the moment she saw her daughter step into the room.
Lerina froze in surprise at seeing her mother standing in L'van's living area. Out of the many possible reasons her father would have to summon her this late in the evening, the arrival of her mother was never on the list. The shock of seeing her rooted her to the spot for several seconds before joy broke through and she rushed to cover the distance. "Mother! How? So good to see you!" the words came out in broken sobs as she hugged her, unconsciously mindful of the toddler in her mother's arm.
"I've missed you so," Evika cried out, hugging her daughter as tightly as she could one handed. Lervesel started to fuss at all the excitement, confused and frightened by everything. Fortunately Shiava took the initiative and stepped forward to relieve her mother of her kid brother despite wanting to greet her long lost sister as well.
A few moments later Lerina stepped back and wiped the tears of joy from her eyes. It was then she noticed her sister holding a toddler. For a second Lerina was confused as she had been certain her mother had the todder then realized Shiava must have taken him during the hugging.
"Shiava, you came too, I"ve missed you so much," Lerina exclaimed and only waited long enough for Evika to claim her son before pulling her sister into a hug as well. Once she finished hugging Lerina stepped back to look over her family, her cheeks damp from tears of joy, still unbelieving they had found her.
"Lerina, this is your baby bother, Lervesel," Evika introduced. "Lervy dear this is your other big sister, Lerina."
Lervesel just stared wide eyed out of confusion more than anything but Lerina wasn't worried. In time she'll get to know her baby brother and that look of incomprehension will fill with the joy of seeing somebody known in no time.
"He'll be less shy and shell shocked once thing settle," Evika assured Lerina. "As for your question about how we got here, I'll let your father explain."
It was then Lerina remembered L'van was patiently standing nearby and turned towards him. "Father, how?"
ooc: sorry for the word vomit...I hope I didn't rush through the reunion too fast. I just felt it'll be simply to get the initial greetings and huggings done since they're my npcs right now If you need to move any of them in your replies, go ahead.
