My Greatest Secret - Ember | K'rios

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.

The touch upon Solai's back enticed her, drawing her form even closer to K'rios if such a thing were even possible. Her thigh slipped along his hip, down his own thigh, her leg shifting further still to brush her calf along his own. So perfectly did he fit against her. So warm. So kind... with a hint of deviousness that appealed to the greenrider.

And he had come to her aide when she needed him most.

Was it a bad thing that she found the urge to kiss him beginning to bud upon her lips? As her mouth ghosted along his jawline, she swore the kiss would be a chaste one. A brush of tender flesh, a pliant press... Even the subsiding thrums of her migraine failed to suppress the desire, but when he spoke again, mentioning his need of a good night's rest, she managed to reign in her impulsive urge. Not tonight. If he needed to rest, Solai would respect him. The kisses could wait, especially when he still managed to warm her with the wrap of his arm around her. Just having him here with her, intimate yet comforting, was enough for Solai.

"Faranth, but you feel good right now, Solai."

She pulled back just enough to brush her nose against his own in a tease up to the moment she slipped to his cheek where she pressed a kiss. "Goodnight, K'rios." Her form curled against his own. With a peace easily found in his embrace, Solai found sleep not long after.

When the sunlight cut through the curtains and shined upon Solai's eye, the greenrider fluttered awake. She was not startle in the slightest when she saw K'rios in her company so early in the morning. It felt natural to her, as though every morning prior to this, she had been deprived by his absence.

He seemed peaceful in those moments leading up to his own rouse from sleep. His repose gave her time to look upon him, admiring a side of the pewterrider few understood and appreciated. Fingers reached up to brush the hairs along his brow, and bring her fingers down his cheek, and around delicate curve of his ear.

You care for this man, Tyreth crooned lovingly into her thoughts.

I do, Solai thought back to her dragon. And yet, it was more than that. Looking upon K'rios in that moment, with all events leading up to this morning considered, Solai knew exactly how she felt. Tyreth, I think he's the one. I'm going to weyrmate this man. Solai could not imagine a morning without him, not any more. To awaken alone felt unnatural to her, especially now that she felt his gentle heart pulsing against her palm. A thumb brushed against his chest, drawing upon the spot. He was perfect, even if she caught that faint warm notes of a breath that soured overnight as they rested. She would rather experience the unsavoury scent if it meant she could awaken to the sight of K'rios every morning, for life was no longer a life at all when her days began and ended without him.

Her heart clenched at the thought that after this morning, he would return back to his apartment. I don't want this morning to end Tyreth. However, he would leave. Their lives demanded it, even if her heart could not stand his inevitable departure.

It would not be long before his eyes slit open to greet the morning and regard her. Once that moment came, Solai would savour it for all that it was, and lean in once more to kiss his cheek. "Good morning..." she would utter, her lips so close to his own revealing a tender smile. Did she dare kiss him?

Yes.

It felt natural, to act upon the desire she had long harboured, to feel his mouth against her own, to press pliant lips against him so intimately.
