Ready to Go? ~ Tag: Theria/Shai

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.

Sid moved closer to the desk, though he remained politely silent as the other spoke. He was here now and that's all that mattered to the bluerider. Honestly, his focus was only on Mul'rec, so he barely even noticed when Theria departed, though he was aware enough to note Solai leaving. It was plainly obvious to anyone with eyes that he was completely besotted with the man.

"Please, have a seat, Sid." As he made the request, he stepped over to the bar and poured them both a glass of water. "I hope Theria was polite to you when you were escorted over?"

"If that was her polite, I don't want to see her angry." He commented with a chuckle. He could deal with a bitter woman, especially since that woman had brought him to his desire. "I've missed you though. How are things with you?" Sid asked curiously.

"If that was her polite, I don't want to see her angry."

Mul'rec regarded the bluerider and offered a shrug. "She has been through much, and has not taken it as well as her sisters," he explained to the man as he walked back over with the water and set the glasses down. How else was he to say his actions had changed the greenrider, and likely for the worst. Each of his daughters suffered, at least those who lived that night. For Theria, she endured the brunt of trauma that night when the assassin killed her weyrmate.

Now, for Jesuinn, she fought for the cause.

"I've missed you though. How are things with you?"

Mul'rec gave a nod of his head, and handed Sid'nis his glass of water. "And I you," he assured the man. But rather than embrace him, he took the seat across the tea table, and settled into the chair to face the bluerider head on. "Things have gone as expected, which things... I wish to speak to you about today. After the flight, it has come to my attention we are due for a necessary discussion. My daughters are upset you are even here, and have advised me against showing you our work here, but I have assured them you are reliable. Besides, if you are to have any part in my life... I must be able to trust you..." Mul'rec also needed Sid'nis to understand the dangers of associating with him.

Though part of Mul'rec scoffed at his discussion with Rathiran all those weeks ago, part of him did see a truth to it as well. He was a danger to those he loved. It was only fair that Sid'nis saw that for himself.

"She has been through much, and has not taken it as well as her sisters,"

Sid'nis gave a solemn nod of his head and felt a bit guilty for the lame joke. He knew what his family had gone through, he should be more sensitive. "Yeah, everyone deals with grief in different ways." His way use to be to simply own his feelings and talk to someone. Then, with Kinali's death, he had dealt with it with alcohol. A dark path he had to work hard to get himself off of, but he did.

A small dimpled grin crossed his face as Mul'rec said he missed him too, but he remained silent as he listened to the rest he had to say as he sipped at the glass of water. A confused crossed his face as he mentioned his daughters distrust of him. "Well, I can't say I ever thought Inez was a fan, so I suppose the others' distrust makes some sense." The few times he and Inez had spoken it had always felt tense. However, he did agree that they needed to talk after the flight.

"How long have we known each other now, Mul'rec? Of course, you can trust me." Sid didn't confirm that he wanted to be a part of the brownrider's life. That answer was given as soon as he walked in and saw Mul'rec. "I know for a time there that I didn't even trust me, but I'd like to think I've proven myself better now." Sid was not a man that couldn't own up to his past mistakes.

"So...what do you want to talk about?" Sid asked him curiously.

"Well, I can't say I ever thought Inez was a fan, so I suppose the others' distrust makes some sense."

A wry smirk escaped the man, though a sadness lingered in his eyes. Ever since that night, Inez, while it had become clear she loved him, had made sure to keep him at a safe distance. His interactions with her had gone cold once more, and he knew it would a long winter would pass before she ever thawed towards him again.

"How long have we known each other now, Mul'rec? Of course, you can trust me. I know for a time there that I didn't even trust me, but I'd like to think I've proven myself better now. So...what do you want to talk about?"

"About my work, and the danger our association undoubtedly poses for you." With that, Mul'rec took a sip of his water, and then set the glass down before him. Not far from the brownrider, Sabren could be seen flitting about, watching one entrance, and than the other. She remained on guard at all times, a testament of the dangers Mul'rec voiced. "We are abolitionists, Sid'nis, and have been for some time. Myself, Theria, Evora... Solai... others..." Many others. "Cador is a separate concern, and as far as we are aware, he is oblivious to the matter... however, the fact he managed to involve Walled into his plot against my family, and has done so with ease has led us to believe that Walled might not be entirely unaware of my dealings in the trade... Though to be fair, I did not leave Walled on the best of terms, thus it is also possible they saw it as an opportunity to harm my family out of a lingering pettiness towards my poignant remarks prior to my departure-" remarks devastating enough to try and kill him the first time turns ago "-Whatever the reason, Walled is willing to hurt me and my known associates. Therefore, you would be in harms way."

"About my work, and the danger our association undoubtedly poses for you."

Sid took another sip of his drink before sitting the glass on the tea table. He merely nodded at the subject as it didn't surprise him all that much. The things that Cador had already done to the man's family gave him good enough reason to know that having a connection with any of them would prove on the dangerous side.

"We are abolitionists, Sid'nis, and have been for some time. Myself, Theria, Evora... Solai... others..."

But he wasn't speaking about Cador. His brows furrowed over his teal eyes as he processed that information. "Hmm...the pamphlets I've seen around. You all, I take it?" Sid's sharp mind did not have a hard time remembering seeing the pamphlets about helping Walled and hearing Mul's words then...well...it was easy to connect the dots. He was silent as he listened to the rest of what the brownrider had to say about Cador and Walled working together.

"-Whatever the reason, Walled is willing to hurt me and my known associates. Therefore, you would be in harms way."

Perhaps it was foolish, perhaps he should have thought more about the ramifications, but Sid only took a few moments to mull it over before he answered. "What I said before, I'll never turn you away. The same goes that nothing you could do or anything happen that would turn me away. Short of you outright telling me to go away, I won't." There was no fear in his eyes, but the thought of being in harm's way was not...pleastant. However, Mul was too important for a maybe to keep him away. "Danger or not...unless you tell me to leave you alone...I'm not going to."

"Hmm...the pamphlets I've seen around. You all, I take it?"

"Yes," acknowledged the brownrider. He would not lie. Honestly, he was proud of the work Solai and Evora had accomplished at the last feast, yet never were they caught.

"What I said before, I'll never turn you away. The same goes that nothing you could do or anything happen that would turn me away. Short of you outright telling me to go away, I won't. Danger or not...unless you tell me to leave you alone...I'm not going to."

Bronze eyes regarded the man in return, a silence following. It would become quite apparent that he held his tongue in thought, and once he spoke, a light would shine upon the complexity of the matter between them, illuminating it. To address that which brewed between them was not to be answered flippantly, nor was that complexity between them so easily named. "I will not tell you to leave, but I will also not ask you to stay." Mul'rec loathed the first, but knew he had no right to ask of the second. He loved the man before him, but not in the way Sid'nis deserved. It ebbed and flowed, making itself visible in times of need such as this, and dispersed when he knew it best to let it go. "You know who and what I am Sid'nis, what I have done, what I am capable of.., and what I am also no capable of-" Commitment. They both knew this "-Are you certain you wish to proceed with this? To go down this road with me?"

"I will not tell you to leave, but I will also not ask you to stay."

A slight curl of a smile lifted one corner of his lips at the knowledge that he would not be asked to leave. As for not asking him to stay...well, Sid'nis hoped it was obvious...Mul'rec didn't have to ask him to stay for him to do just that. The loyalty of which he felt for the brownrider went far too deep for something as frivolous as not being asked to stay to keep him from doing so.

"You know who and what I am Sid'nis, what I have done, what I am capable of.., and what I am also no capable of-" Commitment. They both knew this "-Are you certain you wish to proceed with this? To go down this road with me?"

Once he had been a man that could not have accepted what Mul'rec was incapable of giving him. That man even turned Mul'rec down once before because of such a thing. Still, there was no hesitation as he spoke. "Mul'rec, I have been down many different roads with many different people, some I thought were the complete answer to what I was searching for and they never were." He gave a small shrug of his shoulders. "The truth is...I'd rather have you, exactly as you are than not because...I'm happiest when I'm walking beside you. So you never have to ask me to stay because I never plan on leaving. No matter what."

"Mul'rec, I have been down many different roads with many different people, some I thought were the complete answer to what I was searching for and they never were. The truth is...I'd rather have you, exactly as you are than not because...I'm happiest when I'm walking beside you. So you never have to ask me to stay because I never plan on leaving. No matter what."

In response, Mul'rec answered him with silence. Not a sort that surfaced due to an uncertainty over what to say, the fumblings of thought that failed to congeal into proper articulations, but rather as a product of observation and consideration, the calculations of how his words might affect the man who perceived them.

The brownrider stood to his feet and motioned towards Sid'nis. "Come with me, Sid. I have something to show you." No glance was spared to the bluerider as he escorted him down the corridor, deep into the belly of his hold. He said not a word as he turned a corner, managed several more steps, and then pressed on a wooden panel along the wall trim. It gave way, revealing a hidden passage. "My hold, as you can see, is not what it seems, but I assure you, it is safe." From a near by basket, he procured a handful of glows before he slipped into the passage and held the entrance open for Sid'nis to follow.

"Come with me, Sid. I have something to show you."

The silence didn't bother Sid'nis. He was used to Mul'rec's silences and knew that there was nothing negative behind it. "Alright," the bluerider said as he got to his feet to follow after the brownrider. He followed him down the corridor in silence and watched with awe as Mul'rec pressed a panel to reveal a hidden passageway.

"My hold, as you can see, is not what it seems, but I assure you, it is safe."

"Apparently." Sid said with a smile as he leaned to look down the dark corridor. "I trust you, Mul'rec. Lead the way." He assured him. He hoped it was obvious that he trusted the man, especially after everything that was said before. Still, he was horribly curious as to what exactly it was that he was going to be shown.

The brownrider smiled back in turn, before ushering the man deeper into darkness. "After my time in Walled, seeing all the slaves, the corruption of the Mother, the death of Sonia... I made it my purpose to set things right within their society, or rather, give them the strength to do it themselves." Instead of surprising Sid'nis, he thought it best to explain himself first, to give the man some insight as to where he had been all these turns, and why he brought Sid'nis here today.

"I found the disparagement of slavery vile above all else, and realised that if the revolution of Walled were to ever gain any traction, they would need a massive amount of support from the lowest of society, those who had the most to gain from a shift of power, therefore, I formed the Abolitionist Movement." The path they walked on began to slow down into a stairway, one that twisted down into the belly of the hold. "We've been working for some time, freeing slaves, children mostly, some adults, putting them in a position so that they might take hold of their own destiny, whether it is to find a place in the world where they are empowered, join the movement that freed them, the rebellion beginning to blossom in Walled, or find their peace away from the society that has forsaken them."

They were many now, some riders, some workers, others fighters. And most were young, filled with spirit and determination for the cause. Mul'rec could honestly say now that regardless of whether the future had in store for him, the ideals of the movement would live on.
