Edria was a lovely woman, charming... sly... Even when she presented the news to him, feigning that look of worry, he knew better than to believe she truly shared any true concern.
A chuckle escaped the greenrider as he regarded the woman. It was a weyr after all, and if there was even a chance the child was his, he would happily play the part of a father, at least as much as being a rider would allow.
It had been some time since he last saw a woman glow as much as she did in that moment. Perhaps he had underestimated her worry.
When word reached him several days later that Edria had gone into labour, M'vel took his time to appear in the infirmary. He washed himself, and dressed into a fresh set of clothes. These processes could take forever, and he wanted to feel his best before succumbing to the hours of wait and exhaustion... along with that exquisite stench that so often acccompanied a hygienically neglected form. With that thought, he gave himself a spray of cologne to help uplift his pleasant aroma just a notch or two more before his hours in the infirmary began to widdle away at his pristine cleanliness.
So often did Locrath forget how long labour lasted, dragging on through the night, and often deep into the next day. He once even waited in the infirmary for three days. Though he loved the sound of those first squalls of life, he remembered most of all the relief of soaking in a warm bath afterwards, in order to do away with the smell of redwart, numbweed, repugnant herbs and sweat that he had marinated in all that time.
If the labour lasted longer than a day with no end in sight, he would not hesitate to duck off for a quick wash this time.
Upon his arrival, he made his way to the labour ward. He knew the walk all too well, and found Edria's room with ease. At the moment, the healers were with her, and he unwanted, so M'vel did the polite thing of waiting outside her room... only to find out that while he might be the first to arrive, he was not the only one to show.
A curious look swept over the new face, a kind one. The sociable greenrider offered his hand to the new arrival. "Here for Edria?"
