Melodious Intentions

Even with the move to the South, Gathers are still a thing to look forward to, though in the Walled Hold they appear to be called Festivals instead. Either way, Gathers and Festivals are a time of fun to enjoy when they come around.

Her touch upon her felt magnetic, and immediately N'kili could not help but lower her glass from her lips to perceive the intention behind such contact not often bestowed upon her.

"You're cute when you blush."

Drawing attention to the blush only drew more of the rouge to her cheeks, darkening them against her crisp bronze complexion. Eyes dipped in embarrassment... yet a smile spread upon her face, reaching her twilight pools once more. The glassy orbs dared to look at the cause for such a fluster. The blazon for such a beauty danced in her thoughts.

Hair of fire,
Lips kissed by such flames,
Yet cheeks remain encased by white winters.
Locks and lips bring life to her face,
Eyes of blue, twin sapphires dance for me.
Upon my lost hand dance her delights
Warming me on this early night...


Even as Luka spoke of pets, N'kili found herself hearing only the hum of touch, the way the bluerider's thumb caressed the surface of her hand. Fingers lifted to entwine with those silver stems, stilling them for all the very contact with them invigorated her. She felt as though she laced fingers with those of the very moon. "If you'd like we could go walk and see if the stalls are still open. Maybe we can find you a companion?" And in the mean time she could be N'kili's for a pleasant walk through the coastal hold on this warm Summer day. Fingers could not find the will to retreat from Luka's, for them were quite content to continue finding warmth snug between those digits. "We could leave the wine, and have a server guard it for us, so I don't mind leaving it for a while."

Though the opalrider's eyes cast downward at her comment, the smile that graced her face and danced in her eyes made Luka only smile a little more. If it weren't for that smile, Luka might have retracted her hand and cooled it on the flirting a bit. So far though, N'kili seemed receptive, even daring to lace their fingers together. Luka looked down at their hands a moment as the opalrider initiated it, looking at their differing skintones side by side.

"If you'd like we could go walk and see if the stalls are still open. Maybe we can find you a companion? We could leave the wine, and have a server guard it for us, so I don't mind leaving it for a while."

There was only a brief moment of thought before the bluerider nodded her initial response. "That sounds very good, we can both get a better look at the Gather for a little while," she said with another smile, before her hand abandoned N'kili's so the bluerider could rise from her seat. Even in the warmth of the season her hand felt cold for that moment, and so she came around to the Opalrider's seat and offered a hand to her like a gentleman might offer to a lady to help her rise from her seat.

"Did I compliment you on your dress earlier, by the way? It is stunning," Luka added, admiring the deep green fabric again for a moment, as well as trying to pay a pretty woman another compliment.

"That sounds very good, we can both get a better look at the Gather for a little while."

Indeed, and while N'kili could not help but enjoy the thought of walking with the bluerider, the more practical side of her reminded the opalrider that she needed to look for a new center C string for her harp. Of course visiting the harper stall would tempt the envoy to purchase a new instrument, as though she did not have enough already. A violin sat in her apartment now, freshly polished, the resin untouched upon her bow. A G string broke upon her cello... another replacement she needed to consider. Duke hide her piccolo somewhere around the apartment. After two months of searching, N'kili had half a mind to give up the pursuit entirely, or simply replace the lost instrument.

Duke trilled over the memory, fond of his accomplishment for she had yet to best him at the game.

"Did I compliment you on your dress earlier, by the way? It is stunning."

Could the opalrider blush? Yes, and in abundance it seemed this night. A smile flashed and hide with the compliment before she managed to clear her throat. "Thank you," N'kili answered as a meek hand accepted the offered arm of her company. "You look rather dashing yourself." Though courteous to answer the bluerider with a compliment of her own, she meant it as well. Once more she flushed, but this time she did all she could to distract their attentions for a moment away from the obvious rouge that dominated her cheeks and inspired the reds upon her lips. "So what sort of animal companion are you considering?"

Luka wasn't trying to see how often she could make the subtle colors of a blush cross N'kili's cheeks, but it was amusing and perhaps endearing all the same, while the colors of her blushing cheeks were far more subtle in her skin than it would be in Luka's own, one could see the little signals if they paid attention. She smiled at the returned compliment as the opalrider took her arm, a very light chuckle playing in her throat before she responded.

"Thank you, that is very kind," she responded with a soft smile before she paused a moment, waving down a server before they made their way away.

"Would you be a dear and make sure our wine stays safe," she asked, passing along a mark to the server for their trouble. After a nod, Luka smiled and nodded her thanks before returning her attention to N'kili as she began to lead her away from the dancing square and toward the rest of the Gather around them.

"So what sort of animal companion are you considering?"

A thoughtful hum answered her first as the redhead thought about that for a few moments. "Perhaps something fuzzy? I've always been a bit partial to furry creatures." Again she smiled. "Not that there is anything with the little dragonkin like firelizards either. Duke is especially cute." She chuckled again, glancing at the brown a moment as they made their way along.

"Is there anywhere you'd like to stop by, even if just to look, while we go along?"

With the wine secured, the duo made their way out of the Dancing Square for the merchant stalls. Duke pawed at her shoulder for his beloved toy, thus N'kili fingered through her purse to procure his wooden fish. Right before he began to teeth at the worn, the firelizard gave her a chirp of thanks. "You're welcome." She kissed his cheek.

"Perhaps something fuzzy? I've always been a bit partial to furry creatures. Not that there is anything with the little dragonkin like firelizards either. Duke is especially cute."

How could the firelizard not trill in appreciation, even edging towards the woman? But when he nearly dropped his toy, he abandoned pursuits of her attention to dote upon his wooden fish once again.

"Is there anywhere you'd like to stop by, even if just to look, while we go along?"

N'kili thought on it a moment, debating over her harp strings, but for now she decided to leave her own pursuits for the mean time if so Luka could find a new friend. Though one could say she already had, N'kili held her tongue on the matter. She would enjoy Luka's company for as long as the bluerider allowed at least for this evening, though for all she might privately confess to liking the bluerider Luka, N'kili minded herself well enough not to let her affections get too much of the better of her.

Still, no matter the outcome, she remembered this night.

Sorry, I just felt the need to end this thread, maybe we can do something more with them later, but her muse is beginning to putter out on me.
