She'd spent the morning like many others before, rising and readying for a day of working with the wings, even if she spent that morning getting ready with their own Wingleader. The two of them knew very well how to keep their personal lives separate from their duty though and once they walked out the door, they were Wingleader and 'Second, partners that ran a tight Wing and worked their mates as hard as they needed. A'ric was a competent 'Leader, even if he didn't always think so, and Behemoth was always picking up the slack. The bronze pair worked well together despite their differences, though Kit would always be biased of her team with Susanoth. The striped zultanite and her seemed to work in tandem, feeding off each other and instinctively knowing without having to be told, they were of nearly the same mind, even if her dragon was a bit more of a prude than the rider was.
After their morning drills, the Wing was dismissed for lunch and a bit of a breather, but A'ric wanted them see them back together in the afternoon for another go around, make sure the new formation was ingrained in their brains. The wing dispersed and some went to their apartments, some went to lunch, some went to the craft halls, however they wanted to spend their spare time was their prerogative and she had her own agenda. Sidling up beside their Wingleader, Kit made a few poignant remarks, an invitation to join her in a bit of repose so they could talk shop, but as tempting as the offer was, A'ric had to take a rain check as he'd already made plans to have lunch with the Weyrleader, for both a business and social call. Kit couldn't fault the bronzerider his visit with an old friend, especially the Weyrleader and she wished him a farewell, with a promise to cash in that rain check tonight.
That left Kit with a bit of time on her hands and as Susanoth went up to the cliffs to soak up what warmth she could from the growing summers' sun, the rider thought she'd grab a quick bite to eat while lunch was still being served. The zultaniterider swayed into the Hall, a smile on her lips for a few familiar faces and she chatted up a small group of people for a while. Excusing herself though when her stomach rumbled, she moved toward the buffet tables and began to serve herself up a generous helping of the cold sliced wherry, a chunk of cheese, with a few rolls and a handful of dried fruits. With plate in hand, she turned back to the Hall and her mossy grey gaze drifted over the room, wondering where she should sit.
Aha, there's a good spot. Next to one of her wingriders, who was sitting off on his own in a little part of the room that no one seemed to notice. Not that's a shame, Ed'wyn was a nice looking young man, what was he doing sitting all by himself? She would just have to remedy that, now wouldn't she? Her hips swayed as she weaved through the tables to get to that little corner of the room and without even announcing herself, the zultaniterider slid into place across the table from the greenrider and a bright smile light up her face as he startled. "Easy there Ed, no need for a heart attack, just me."
Kitiara teased the young man, her tone friendly and genuine though. She hadn't truly meant to startle him, but she also seemed to realize her sudden appearance might have that effect as well. "Just saw you sitting here all on your lonesome, and thought you could use a little company, correct me if I'm wrong though."
She added, settling into her seat and smiling softly at the greenrider.
