Ao'mek was determined to push the issue of N'can being worthy of Violath. They could argue that point until between lit on fire. N'can shrugged. "I dunno, maybe. Does it even matter if I'm worthy or not? I mean...I don't know if Violath even thought that way. He just opted for whoever he liked, or who felt right to him. Doubt worthiness ever crossed his mind-unlike his sister. Otherwise he probably could have called someone over or gone to them, yeah. Although who would not go to a dragonet that called for them?"
It was a question N'can didn't really expect any answer to and instead he kept an ear on Ao'mek. Perhaps it was the alcohol, perhaps N'can was so stressed that he snapped, who could say? Whatever the reason...N'can laughed. He actually laughed at what Ao'mek was saying. "Suuuure, you somehow know who I am after just meeting me even without the bond of Impression. Shards...I don't even know what Violath thinks he sees. Just figure it's a dragon thing, some sense or instinct us humans don't have."
A frown met the part about confidence though. "I got confidence," N'can muttered. "I am perfectly confident that I am a klutz, a failure, and a bother. Knowing that, acting accordingly, doesn't mean I don't have confidence..." He trailed off with a sigh and sipped at his drink once more. He wished Ao'mek would move on to an easier topic...maybe one more pleasant for the both of them.
Or he could worry about the alcohol. N'can sighed once more, looking at the drink he held. "It tastes really good," he protested softly, though he had to admit getting too drunk didn't sound at all appealing. A moment later he actually looked...somewhat annoyed as Ao'mek finished off his own glass. "Hey...if you can drink it all why can't I?"
It took a moment for N'can's mind to switch to the new topic, the question Ao'mek had asked before finishing his drink. Once it had though, N'can cast a dubious look out at where people were beginning to dance. "Depends I guess...on how much you value your feet." His gaze shifted back to Ao'mek, a slight smirk on N'can's lips. He actually made some sort of joke. But a moment later he shook his head. "I only try dancing once in a great while and it's always a disaster. I have no grace or rhythm at all and it shows. I make a fool out of myself and then if I'm dancing with someone...they lose interest pretty fast after I've stomped on their feet and kicked their shins."
