It had been a few days since the hatching, and a couple since the feast, and Cat was missing Niomi more than ever. He had known since Impressing that he wouldn't be able to spend much, if any time with her until he reached a certain point in training, and he accepted that fully. Nakotomith was worth it, and she would agree with that fully. But that didn't stop him from thinking about her, or missing her, all the same.
It was during an instance of thinking about her after lessons that he felt the blue nudge him gently, and when he shifted on the bed, a piece of leather in his hands, that he heard his beautiful voice in his head.
The man grinned and scratched the ridges above his dragon's eyes. This handsome, little, wonderful creature that had seen fit to choose him in the stands was making perfect sense, as he often did. I would like to see my lady for a bit, and show you off to her. Show you off to her Haddy. You would like them both. He continued to scratch, laughing when the blue's rear leg started to thump on the floor in pleasured response to the ministrations of his rider.
After a while though, the blue twisted out of his rider's hands and nudged at him again. It was clear, soon after, what his intentions were.
How do you know what flowers are?
Cat chuckled and nodded, figuring they could walk towards the gardens and pick some flowers if possible, before finding a spot to sit and wait for the ladies. Sure. Let's go then. He got up and dressed, makign sure he looked tidy with Nako's help, and together they headed for the first stop. There they picked flowers together, tied with bits of leather and ribbon borrowed from a little girl who was willing to help them with the romantic gesture so long as she got to pet the baby dragon.
Then they went to find their spot, and only then did Nako allow Cat to think towards Haddy, her mind warm and familiar as he reached for the lovely green. Haddy, my dear, my third love, will you and your rider please meet me and Nakotomith in the Weyr Yard? I would like to introduce the two of you to him.
