As K'rios explained what they were going to do I'ent blinked and looked concerned. He certainly knew nothing about fishing and his cooking skills was pretty much limited to sticking it into flames and pulling it out before it was too burnt. Then he realized he wouldn't have to do the cooking, the Candidates were suppose to do it together and he assumed that included preparing food for the dragonriders and the Journeywoman Fisher. Once K'rios explained meat was being provided for those who couldn't eat fish he looked at him in surprise. Hunting and killing a small animal didn't seem any more difficult to do than standing by a river and trying to get a fish. He wasn't too bad at catching rodents and tunnelsnakes for food, he didn't think it would be hard to do so in the jungle.
Exhaling he turned his attention to what K'rio's was saying, deciding it wasn't his place to question his decisions or make suggestions. K'rios clearly had been around long enough to know hunting was something he could have the Candidates but had reasons for not allowing it.
<I heard there are nasty Felines running lose in the Jungle. You think we'll have to fight one of them off? I bet it'll be quite a challenge.> Shireth said, inadvertently revealing the likely reason why hunting wasn't going to be part of this trip.
I certainly hope we don't run into any of those. I'm sure we'll be far too close to the Weyr for any of those felines to get near enough to be at thread. I'ent told Shireth. The news disappointed Shireth but she didn't complain. Even without the thread of wild felines the camping trip did promise to be fun.
I'ent gave a slight nod when K'rios introduced him. As he wasn't required to say anything nor pick which team he was on, he stayed silent.
