Dark eyes glanced around, and A'ric couldn't help but just, stare off into the distance for a moment. For some reason, he was more tired today than he normally was, and he had already found himself zoning out more than once. It was not something he was proud of. As a Wingleader, he knew he should always keep his focus, even if everything wasn't going right for him, or for Behemoth. The two of them were a team, and they led this Wing, and made sure they always acted like it. Today though, was different. Even with Behemoth pretty much yelling at him to keep his attention on what he was doing, he just couldn't.
Not that things were bad, it was just, today was one of those days where he kind of wished he wasn't a Wingleader. Sure, he loved the honor and the chance to constantly prove himself, but sometimes, he just wished he had more time to himself. More time for Viktor, more time for Kit, more time for Behemoth (besides drills), and more time for hanging with friends. That way of thinking he knew wasn't really the greatest, but it was how he felt. At least he wasn't the Weyrleader anymore for now. That had been a lot of work, and he had been grateful for the opportunity. It was nice to not have as MUCH pressure now. Then again, there was always pressure. It was the pressure that he and Behemoth both put on themselves.
Finally the drills were over, and A'ric went and took a nice hot bath, trying to get himself to relax a little. Taking a few deep breaths, he found himself sinking lower into the water. Honestly, he didn't want to get out, but a rumble in his stomach reminded him that it was getting close to dinner time, and he hadn't really ate anything for lunch. Food had been the last thing on his mind. Knowing the drills they had, he had just wanted to get started and get on with the day.
Eventually, he got out, and got dressed in some clean clothes and then headed down to the dining hall to get some dinner. After getting his food, he sat down at one of the tables and quickly began eating. His attention was only on his food, and he looked up when he heard a voice, and quickly swallowed his food. "No, I dont mind at all." The bronze rider was not one to really care who he sat with at meals. If some of his other friends were there, he would sit with them, if they weren't, he would try and just be friendly to whoever he did sit with.
A small smile spread across his face as she talked about being starving, and then introduced herself. "Nice to meet you. I'm A'ric, rider of Bronze Behemoth. As for knowing me, I don't believe we've met before. But usually everyone knows Behemoth more than me anyway."
Taking a sip of his drink he continued. "I hear Evanoria is nice. I hope you find it nice here as well. It's always nice to have new faces around."
