It had been a long day and Fox couldn't honestly say he was in the best of moods. It'd just been one of those days that had been rather shitty for no Faranth damn good reason. He wanted to go home and snuggle with his short stack on the couch. Maybe drink a little wine, smoke a good cigar, and read, but thanks to one of his pranks he had watch duty tonight. That he didn't regret. It had been a good prank and the fact he got caught was his own damn fault, so he would take the punishment, he just really wished he could go home to be with his love tonight. At least it was just one night and it was just watch duty. Yes, it was boring as all get out, but he'd rather do that than have to clean the latrines.
He'd gone to drills then went home to get in a quick nap before watch duty, then he'd gone to the dining hall for some food before he had to head up to the heights. The meal, at the very least, was absolutely delicious and he decided to go ahead and have that glass of wine even if he wasn't snuggled on the couch with his short stack. He even had a cigar tucked in a pocket to enjoy while he stood up on the heights all night. A part of him wondered why dragons still stood watch when they had the Pack and the night whers to guard the weyr, but he supposed they still had to have some form of punishment for delinquent riders such as himself. Once he finished up eating he stood to deposit his plates with the dirty ones, then he began to head out."Come on Ed'wyn! That was so uncool. How will she like me now? I'm such a clumsy clutz! Ugh!"
It was only a moment after he'd walked out that he heard a commotion back in the dining hall. Fox didn't think anything of it at first, though his step paused a moment. He was about ready to keep on going, but then the very obvious sound of a man in distress caused him to stop and turn around. He saw a young man with his face held in his hands. Fox knew he had to get to the heights, but he felt bad for the lad, so he stopped and turned around. "You alright there buddy?"
He asked kindly. If the man didn't want to talk that was fine, but after his shitty day if he could make someone else's a little less shitty he wanted to. "I'm guessing that commotion in there was you?"
