With little delay, the green waded into the waters, submersing herself entirely for a nice long swim. She needed to rid herself the firestone soot which clung to her hide. It was an obnoxious scent, repulsive even, and both rider and dragon were insistent no one else needed to smell her like that.
You sure you don't want to eat first? M'vel asked of her as he shed off his flight jacket, and folded it onto a boulder. He added his gloves and helmet to the pile.
And a filling one at that, so it seemed to the greenrider.
He pulled off his belt, and set it with his items. Did you want to go anywhere after this? Or are we to enjoy a quiet evening tonight? With a tug of his tunic, he pulled it over his head and folded it neatly in its own pile. The garment would need a thorough washing. Fortunately, he had a fresh one folded away in his saddle back, along with a fresh pair of pants, socks, and undergarment, as well as a bag of scented soap sand. A thorough wash after a long drill had become routine for the clean man. Without a bathing pool of his own in his new weyr, he was left with little choice unless he wanted to using the communal bathing pools. It was not that he was opposed to them, but not when other soiled bodies were making thorough use of them.
M'vel did not blame her. The days grew shorter now with Winter now arrived, though not by much. Back in north, it felt as though only a handful of hours offered sunlight. Here, it still felt like the sun held to the sky for the bulk of the day.
As Locrath swam, M'vel watched her, biding his time before he finally shed the last of his attire. Living in a weyr, there was little care for such things as nudity, and M'vel had lived in the weyr long enough to let go of those holdbred reservations. He set the dirtied attire aside with the rest of his clothing, grabbed a wash rag, and then finally ventured into the waters, calling out to his lifemate. Time for that wipe down, Sweetheart.
As she swam to shore, M'vel waded in deeper, until the waters barely managed to reach his hips. It was then that he became aware of the company that approached.
