Catching Up (L'van || Ember)

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.

You should go and talk to him again.

Sull'tek looked up from his desk and over at the brown who spoke. Okay, are you going to come with again? He knew that his father's weyr would be able to hold the brown as well, but the brown still declined. Sul'tek nodded though and he left his own and he headed to the large apartment that belonged to his father, L'van. Sul'tek had been keeping up, slightly, with his father since he came to the weyr after what happened at Igen Weyr. Are you sure you don't want to at least be outside? Sul'tek was still trying to fully figure out his feelings for his father, so he was of course, a bit nervous around him, even though he tried not to show it. But that was also the reason why he loved for Basarolth to be along with him for these little meetings of catching up.

But still, the brown denied the question and just stayed in his bed, even going so far as to send a picture in his mind that made himself look comfortable and warm. Sul'tek rolled his eyes playfully at his bonded before he knocked on his father's apartment door. "Hello L'van, its Sul'tek. I was wondering if you wanted to spend some time talking?" Things had been hard for them to try and talk and catch up before, just because of the fact that they were both busy, but his father more so since he was the Weyrleader. He stood outside and waited for the answer from the Weyrleader, and that was when he saw Basarolth land a little bit away from him and laying down in the grass beside the apartment. It was his way of saying that he would still be close.

When he heard that voice and knew that man was waiting for him, L'van paused and looked up from the desk in his apartment. He hadn't heard from Sul'tek on a personal level in an age or two, and he couldn't be certain he was hearing what he was, or if it was some illusion. Usually the only time they had contact with one another was on an official level, and they avoided one another with a quiet, unspoken understanding, one that he didn't understand himself and never really had out of respect to his son.

But if he was there, there had to be a reason for it, unless he wanted something, and even if he did, L'van would be willing to hear him out. He set his quill down and stood, leaving his chair where it was as he made his way to the front of the apartment, which was quiet and dark. He called out "Just a moment!" as he set himself to opening the glow baskets, and wondering if he needed to take out something in the kitchen. Klah ingredients maybe, or perhaps something for an entire meal?

Or maybe he should just wait to see what it was that would happen once he opened the door and spoke to Sul'tek in the first place? He made his way forward after the last basket was open. When he reached the door he paused for a moment before unlocking it and opening the door up. On the other side he saw a face, so much like his own in his youth, and yet so different to what it was at the same time. "Sul'tek."

And then it hit him.

The boy had called him L'van. It stung, even now, and yet there was nothing he could do about it. He swallowed and stepped back, opening the door further to allow him in. "Come in, have a seat in the living room if you'd like. Do you want a drink, something to eat?"
