Career Never Fades ~ [Tag] Parker/Bast

The lands around New Atricis that are regarded as Atricis' new territory. Not as big as their previous protective range, but still lots of space and wilds to explore. Dragon Flights and Wher Runs also occur across these lands.

Where do you think you're going?

Finn groaned, but she didn't stop. She was still coughing and she knew if she slowed down, it would only get worse. You were supposed to be sleeping. Go back to the Weyr. I'll be fine. She just needed to get an herb that grew beyond the Weyr, it would only take her a little over half a candlemark, if that, to get it. Then she'd be back before anyone noticed and no one would be the wiser.

That had been the plan at least.

She hadn't counted on Danteth waking up and spoiling her getaway. If Danteth was awake, she was more likely to tell someone that she wasn't well. It hadn't started out that way. She'd managed well enough to hide it herself the past day or two, using her shoulder to mask the cough, or drops to to soothe the irritation. She wasn't trying to make others sick, or worry anyone, or put herself in danger, but she was a healer for fuck's sake. She knew how to treat herself.

You aren't a healer anymore though, Finn. You're a rider. And riders are supposed to get help from the infirmary.

She ground her teeth together, almost gnashing them as she tried to ignore her dragon, but Danteth's mind was a pinch stronger today than her own and it didn't help that she wasn't feeling well. At least she was able to hide where she was, so she had some peace and solace in that. It wouldn't last if she didn't hurry though. I'll be back soon. Blab on me and I'll hide your oil.

No you won't. B'tian will get me more.

Bast would, damn him.

Just... She'd managed to get Belladonna and Oleander to go away, but she couldn't get Danteth to do the same. She didn't think she would either. She threw her arms in the air and started running, even if that made everything hurt more and her lungs burn and the coughing come on so bad that she thought she might roll over and choke. That one herb was just beyond and if she could get it, the coughing would go away and she'd finally feel better...

Feeling triumphant, and knowing she'd be called a little shit later - and not caring in the least - Danteth left her little perch in the yard to find Villeforth and Bast. She nudged the latter and crooned to the former when she found them. Would you please tell your rider something for me? My rider is sick. She has been sick for at least three days but has been trying to treat it herself. She is currently outside the Weyr looking for a herb and if Finn gets pissed off at me for telling, your rider owes me more of my oil.

B'tian was out in the yard giving his amazing zultanite a good oiling. It was still hard to believe he had actually done it...impressed. Villeforth was everything and more than he could possibly think possible. They had decided not long after bonding that the two of them would rather be part of the fighting wings than a clutching pair. Plus, with the arrival of Andromedath it was necessary they have to be one anyways. Weyrlinghood was almost over. There was only six months left before they would be fully graduated. For now they were enjoying the freedom of having their own weyrs.

Bast was just about done oiling her hide when Danteth came up to them both. Good day to you, Danteth. Yes, I will inform him immediately. The prim Zultanite turned to Bast and told him. Your girlfriend is sick and has decided to treat herself instead of going to the infirmary. Apparently she is outside of the weyr. The zultanite informed him. "Son of a bitch." Was Bast's first comment. He knew that she had been under the weather lately, it was hard to hide such things from a fellow healer, and had told her to go to the infirmary, but she kept putting it off.

He ran fingers through his hair in frustration before he put up his oiling equipment and asked Mel to take it back to their weyr. "Don't tell her we're coming, Danteth, but please give me an image of where she is." Bast asked of her as he mounted onto his dragon. Villeforth took off from the ground then with powerful strokes. I hope this doesn't take long. I am hoping for a nap. The zultanite stated as she hovered and waited for the image to be given to her from Danteth. Ask Danteth if she is coming with us. Bast told her. He really should be using straps, but he didn't want to take the time. Danteth, dear, are you going to join us to fetch your rider.

But of course. I'll need to make sure she makes it home in one piece, and she'll need to know how displeased I am with her. Knowing exactly where her rider was, she shared the image the zultanite and gave a soft croon. The silly girl she was bonded to though she could get away with hiding, but didn't realize Danteth always knew where she was, regardless of where she was. It was for the best though, she would be thanked one day, but for now this was going to be a difficult time. Danteth would deal with it and gloat later when her rider was feeling a little bit better.

Finn, meanwhile, unaware of what her dragon was up to, was busy trying to dig through the leaves and brush for what she wanted. She knew she was close. She recognized many of he plants she was encountering. So why wasn't she finding the one that she needed? It hadn't been that long since she'd been practicing full time, so her skills couldn't have dropped off that sharply, so she refused to believe it was that. It had to be the stupid fever. She should have had a cup of tea before she left the Weyr. Just her luck, too. Probably why her vision was starting to blur.

But! Once she found it, she could mash it up and put it on her tongue, swallow a few times and be done with it. She knew what she was doing. She didn't need to be babied, she didn't need to be taken care of by anyone else. She could still tend to herself. This would be proof of that. She wasn't sure why she was being so stubborn, digging her heels into the ground as she was. But Faranth... she just didn't want to go to the infirmary.

Villeforth waited for her garnet sister before they both went between to where Finn was currently at outside of the weyr. They came into the sky above the forested area. The zultanite got as low to the top of the trees as she could so they would be able to spot Finn easier. Villeforth did not envy her rider's lover as she was certain that he was going to give her a good talking to for running out here by herself when she was sick. She couldn't blame him, though. She'd known from the moment she had impressed to him that part of his heart belonged to Finn and she was fine with that.

I believe that is her down there. I saw some movement. Villeforth stated and then quickly found a place to land. Bast quickly dismounted. "Alright. Where did you think you saw her, Villeforth? Danteth, do you know exactly where she is?" He asked of them. He was Eno tracker by any means, so it would be impossible for him to search for her out here by himself. I believe this is where I saw her. I'm sure Danteth can give you better directions. Villeforth said as she sent him the image. Bast waited until Danteth gave him what information she had and then he set off to find his love.

He began at a light jog so he could catch up to her. If she was looking for something then she would be on the move, so he didn't want to dilly dally. Thanks to his long legs it did not take him too long to get to where he finally found her off in the distance. "Finn!" Bast called to her to get her attention. When she turned to look at him he raised his arms in a 'what do you think you're doing' gesture before he voiced that question. "What do you think you're doing? You should be back at the weyr, preferably in the infirmary if I have my say on the matter." Bast got up to her and pulled her in for a hug.

Finn was shocked to say the least, when he was suddenly... there. She'd tried so hard to hide herself from Danteth, and yet the garnet had apparently found her with little to no difficulty at all. She wasn't sure how that had happened, and maybe she never would, but she was going to try being more closed off in the future if she ever needed to run off and be alone like this. She heard her dragon snort in the back of her mind, a fruitless gesture, the sound was meant to convey, in response to her thoughts. Finn's mouth twisted into a sour note and she closed her eyes tight. "I don't need to be in the infirmary, Bast." She insisted, even though she hugged him back in return. "I just need to find this herb, then I can make my tea, then I will be okay."

She felt a coughing fit coming on, but he was holding onto her so firmly, and she had to admit, the warmth of his body felt so nice right now. This wasn't fair at all. She wasn't supposed to feel this weak, even when she was. She closed her eyes and rested her head against him, fingers coming up to grip his tunic tight. "I just don't want to go there. They're going to babble at me and treat me like some fucking child. I've treated myself before, Bast. It isn't that difficult, and I know what they're going to say."

What was the point in bothering to go to the infirmary when that was the case?

Again she heard Dantet snort.

She told the garnet to piss off.

"I don't need to be in the infirmary, Bast. I just need to find this herb, then I can make my tea, then I will be okay."

Bast gave her a scolding look. "Maybe you didn't need to be in the infirmary, but running about all of the place instead of resting and not getting proper treatment when you should have might mean you do need to." He said firmly. Bast was normally a soft, gentle, and sweet person, but when it came to matters of his craft he could be firm and serious. When those matters involved someone he cared and loved then he could be even more stern. "Exactly why could you not have just asked me to get the herb for you? I know I'm not a specialist in herbs, but I could have at least done that." He asked, not exactly hurt that she didn't tell him, but a bit sad she didn't. "I'm a healer too, you know, I am very aware at what horrible patients we make."

"I just don't want to go there. They're going to babble at me and treat me like some fucking child. I've treated myself before, Bast. It isn't that difficult, and I know what they're going to say."

Long arms stayed wrapped around her as he placed a few kisses on her warm forehead. "Yeah, but you're not just looking after you anymore, Finn. You have me and I want to take care of you. I love you." His voice wasn't as firm as before. It was softer and tender with a hint of concern there. "How about we make a compromise. I won't make you go to the infirmary for now and you let me take care of you and get you what you need. Now, if you happen to get worse then I will drag your butt there myself. What do you say?"

"Exactly why could you not have just asked me to get the herb for you? I know I'm not a specialist in herbs, but I could have at least done that. I'm a healer too, you know, I am very aware at what horrible patients we make."

She had thought about that, sending him out to get it, and now she felt horrible for not asking him to fetch it for her. She could have asked, saved them both the trouble and potential heartache. Instead here they were, she was running a fever, and the herb was clenched in her fingers and pretty much useless to her now. Thankfully there was more nearby, but it would have been a cleaner process to just have him run out to do it. "i could be snug as a bug in bed right now if I had just gone with that plan..." The fever, it was starting to take over. That's why she was suddenly going soft. It had nothing to do with how perfect and warm his arms were...

"Yeah, but you're not just looking after you anymore, Finn. You have me and I want to take care of you. I love you."

Lifting her head away from his chest, she looked up at him with a sudden tired expression on her face. "I love you too, Bast." She just wanted to go home now, forget the herb. But since they were here... she peeled away from him to go find it again and held it out to him, afraid she would crush this one again. "We need to make this into tea when we get home. If I drink it," she grabbed a few more sprigs while she was at it. "At least a few days in the next day or two, it should flush whatever I'm sick with out of my system." Then she flopped against him again and remained there as he started to speak once again.

"How about we make a compromise. I won't make you go to the infirmary for now and you let me take care of you and get you what you need. Now, if you happen to get worse then I will drag your butt there myself. What do you say?"

Now that sounded like the best idea she'd heard all day. She nodded against him and curled her fingers into his shirt. "That. Can we do that? I promise I'll be good. Though if I'm bad..." She smirked and wriggled her brows up at him in a suggestive and teasing manner. A moment later, her face took on its previous serious mask and she reached up to touch his cheek. "Can we go now, Bast? I want blankets, tea, and you."

"i could be snug as a bug in bed right now if I had just gone with that plan..."

Bast continued to hold her tight and rock her gently in his arms. Even without feeling her forehead he could feel how feverish she was just by hugging her like this. He didn't care though, even if he did risk catching whatever she had. "Yes, you could be, my silly girl." He agreed, scolding lightly as he kissed her cheek. He loved that he was so tall and she was so short. Being able to envelope her like this made him happy. "When we get you home I will be sure to make you snug as a bug in bed." He promised her.

"I love you too, Bast. We need to make this into tea when we get home. If I drink it at least a few days in the next day or two, it should flush whatever I'm sick with out of my system."

He stayed next to her as she left his arms to go get more of the herb. He took the held out herb from her and held it gently. "I've used this one before. I remember how to make it into a tea." Bast said as he examined the herbs he was now holding. It was strong stuff when made into a tea, so hopefully that would do the trick to get her fever to break and help her to feel better. He was staring at the herb when she flopped against him, almost unbalancing him, but he managed to keep his balance. "Easy love. C'mon, let's get back. You're going to ride with me because that will make me feel better." Bast said as he put an arm around her and led them towards Villeforth.

"That. Can we do that? I promise I'll be good. Though if I'm bad.."

The suggestive tone and look did not go unnoticed by him. "I believe bad girls get spankings, don't they?" He asked back with the same about of teasing. "However, I think you're far too sick and icky feeling to be a bad girl." She needed rest not a roll in the sheets, though when they both felt good such an opportunity would have never been passed up.

"Can we go now, Bast? I want blankets, tea, and you."

"Yes, we can go now. You can have all of those things." Bast promised her as he helped her onto his lovely zultanite, then mounted up behind her. They would get back to her weyr and from there he would take care of her every need.
