However, over the past few months something else had been on his mind from time to time. The last time he had really sat and had a conversation with Rhea had been when the younger dualhandler asked Darilex about Runs and advice on them since Rhea was in a similar boat that Darilex had been in when he had first bonded to Darisk. Now, however, Darilex had something else he wanted to talk to Rhea about, and after some schedule shifting in his own schedule and playing message tag with Rhea for a while, he managed to get some time set aside to welcome Rhea into his quarters for dinner one night, though at this point it was very early morning for the rest of the Weyr, with the dragons still asleep and the sun not quite ready to rise yet.
With the invitation extended, encouraging Rhea politely to join him for dinner that night, Darilex made sure to have two meals sent down to his space, including a few different drink options. Once the ordered items arrived, Darilex thanked the drudges and helped them place everything on his dining table, thanking them again before they left to return to their other work. His two whers curled up with each other in their shared wallow in a darker corner of the fairly spacious cavern room. At this hour his whers would be relaxing and would like be asleep soon, but for now, they relaxed and watched Darilex. He made sure to keep the lights for the dinner at the table only on the other side of the room so they wouldn't bother the whers.
Once finished though, Darilex only had to wait, though he imagined he wouldn't have to wait long, as Rhea seemed like the punctual sort from what Darilex knew of him so far.
