Tag ~ Aniday and Ar'vis
Eavan's eyes watched both of the men that held a measure of importance to her. Ar'vis, however, received a bit more attention. He was the one she was having an affair with and those feelings of want and desire were stronger than the feelings of a more lasting love she shared with Aniday. Yes...she did love her weyrmate for how could she not? He was the father of her daughter, a caring and kind man, but...he lacked the danger and excitement that Ar'vis had. The logical of her said that she should be happy with the loyal and lasting relationship she shared with Aniday. He was good to her, would never betray her, and loved her. Apparently and shamefully that wasn't enough for Eavan. She cheered him on, none the less, as he went against another man that seemed just as equally capable. However, today would prove to be on neither of her men's sides. Aniday lost to A'ric and Ar'vis lost to Mul'rec. Perhaps Eavan would be able to...cheer him up later.
"I gave it a shot,"
"It's alright, Aniday. You did your best." Eavan said as she smiled wildly at the smith. She knew her weyrmate was more of a gentle soul anyways. The blond haired woman pulled him down to place a kiss on his cheek. It was while she was doing this that she noticed the smirk and wink that Mul'rec gave to her. Did he know about her and Ar'vis? She know she hadn't told a soul and she was rather sure that Ar'vis hadn't told anyone either. He couldn't know. Eavan merely gave him a hard look back that didn't dispute what he was implying nor did it confirm it. "Come on, let's go get something to eat. I'm hungry." She said to Aniday before rolling away.
Tag ~ Mul'rec and V'an
Sid was paying attention to the people that were preparing to fight and didn't notice his dear friend coming up to sit next to him until he heard his named called out. "Hey there, V'an. Great to see you." He said with a wide smile as he gave the brownrider a pat on the back. While he always loved seeing his friend, the dark memories couldn't help but threaten to evade his mind. He was sure it was the same for V'an. Sid'nis couldn't stop the wave of guilt that washed over him each time he saw V'an though. While he'd been conniving enough to keep the brownrider from being the piece to Kerberos's sick puzzle, he couldn't save him from the grievous wound he'd had to mar on the man's torso. While he knew that V'an didn't blame him for that...Sid would always feel horrible.
Since Sid'nis had been sold off before Locke got there, he had no idea what had happened to V'an. He'd heard the basics of how they had gotten out, that it was because of Locke that V'an was free, but the details were unsaid. Sid wasn't sure if he wished to know the details of their escape, though he was grateful to Locke for rescuing his friend. Mainly it was the other prisoners that he was worried about. He'd been worried about them ever since he last saw them. Had they lived? Were they killed? Did they die because of what he'd been forced to do to them? Sid had a feeling he was better off not knowing.
"You think Mul'rec will win?"
Sid chuckled to keep himself from immediately saying 'yes'. "I think he's got a better chance than some." He said, trying to keep his voice schooled. The fights began and the bluerider sat on the edge of his seat when Ar'vis and Mul'rec began to spar. Sid couldn't help the flare of anger that welled in his chest as the bronzerider took his cheap shot, but he was glad that Mul'rec was the bigger man about it. Little did he know that the punch wasn't totally unprovoked. A large grin spread on his face as Mul'rec came out the victor of their match. "What did I say?" Sid asked V'an in a teasing voice. Bright blue eyes watched as Mul'rec made his way over to them.
"Did you enjoy yourself? Ah! V'an!" he patted the man's knee. "Good to see you about again."
A light blush threatened to cover his cheeks at the man's words. Thankfully, the sight of V'an distracted him long enough so Sid could pull himself together a little. "I always enjoy watching you." As soon as the words were out of his mouth he could have kicked himself. So much for pulling himself together. The bluerider cleared his throat and looked every where else for a moment. "You did an amazing job, I thought. That sucker punch was completely unfair though. I'm glad you managed to get the upper hand. Not that I ever doubted your prowess." Sid said to his friend with a crooked smile.
