Once again, the bronze rider just waved off her apologies. While he wasn’t exactly sure if that was the best thing to do at the moment, it was what he wanted to do, and that’s just how he felt. He didn’t want her to keep apologizing to him. There was no need really, like he had already told her. If the man was being honest with himself, this young woman actually kind of reminded him of himself when he had first come to the Weyr, and even more so after he had bonded to Behemoth.
When he had Impressed to the big bronze, it felt as though all eyes (well, leadership wise anyway) were in the two of them. It actually made him very nervous, almost like what was happening with this woman he would imagine. Eventually, he learned that he could only be himself and do what he could, no matter what. Even if people were watching him, it wasn’t going to make him any more or less great than he was going to be to begin with. Sure, everyone probably had high hopes, and Behemoth had actually had the highest hopes of everyone come to think of it.
As the Weyrling spoke once more, dark eyes turned back to her, the bronzerider pulling himself from his thoughts to make sure that he was paying attention to her. Nodding he said, ”I know what that’s like. When I first moved her from Benden, I was very overwhelmed and it took me a while as well to get my bearings. It gets easier though, I promise.” Ok, that sounded kind of cliche, but if it helped her feel better, he didn’t care.
Chuckling as they began talking about the trust exercises, the man shook his head a little as well. ”Ah yes. When I was. Weyrling, those were honestly the days I hated the most. Behemoth was always strong willed, and when we had to do those, of we messed up, he would get angry and try and take it out on me and then we’d get into a fight. Since he’s grown up though now, it’s not really as bad. We could probably manage to do stuff like that now a little better."
Thinking a moment, he let a small, almost playful smirk come to his face. "Actually, would you be interested in meeting him? He likes attention, as long as it's not coming from me. And, believe it or not from what Ive told you about him, he does actually like meeting new people, especially new Weyrlings."
