Any excuse to get out to the water, and more importantly, fish, was a good thing to Dirce. Graduation had come and gone and she had thought there'd be more time for it but the opposite had been true, which was a shame. She could not only catch a good amount on her own, but cook it up in no time flat on the shore of a beach, which always meant good eating for anyone that cared to join her, even if it was just her small little lizard comapions.
Yesterday though, she'd found reason to finally go out, and she was not only taking someone with her, but someone who had, apparently, been intrigued enough to say yes. Of all the goldriders in the Weyr, she had yet to meet and chat with Keket, who had Impressed on Atrician sands but returned only recently. She wanted to change that if at all possible. It had been with that in mind that she'd sent a note to the other woman asking if she'd like to go fishing for their first meeting.
The response had been positive, and Dirce had spent the rest of her free evening making sure her equipment was in perfect working order before going to bed, having informed Keket that the perfect time to go would be first thing; she would find out why when they arrived at the beach she was thinking of. When dawn struck the sky, Dirce had roused with a feeling of excitement in her belly, one that could only be brought on by the prospect of fishing.
She got herself dressed, geared up, packed up, then flew Sandalphonth to the bowl to get breakfast for her and Keket. It wasn't until they arrive on their grounds - she'd made sure she had plenty of klah before going between, she wasn't that stupid, that she called for the goldrider, hoping she was awake and prepared for the morning herself. If not, this was sure to be a rude wakening when Sandalphont chirped at her. she shared the coordinates, clear and crisp as morning sun. When you're both ready.
And then she had to turn, and admonish her rider to sit down and eat. Because no, hunting for insects with which to fish with was not considered acceptable behavior when you had yet to eat a decent meal in the morning.
