Surieka wasn't entirely sure how this was going to go. Normally, her father was here with them when someone new came to meet her. Mainly because Basarolth seemed to be the only one right now who was able to get through to Lamassuth to make sure that he doesn't do anything stupid. But, Suri was going to have to learn to control the chimera at some time, right? Why not start today and see how it goes. Behave okay Lamassuth. I don't want to have to explain anything to Sul'tek and Basarolth on how you bite my uncle and his dragon. No promises, but I will try. You are mine to protect, that means I will protect you.
Surieka sighed lightly as she looked at her uncle as he came in. She couldn't help but smile, the nickname was vaguely familiar, as if she had heard it before. Of course, it had been turns since she last saw T'brek. But even still, the nickname was a welcome thing. It was something old and familiar, not new and strange like her new home. Of course, she had wanted to come here, but not like this. "Hi uncle."
But she looked at Lamassuth as T'brek addressed the weyrling and she held her breath. It is my job now. I will make sure that she is always safe, even if that means chasing away those who claim to love her.
Suri groaned then and she shook her head.
"He doesn't mean you uncle. He knows that you love me, he is just, really protective and clingy."
She looked at Lamassuth as he moved closer to her feet and she sat up so that he could lay his head on her lap. "The Dragonhealer's say that it is most likely because of what happened at out impression."
She stroked the chimera's head, only to see greens and blues swirl in his eyes. It made her happy to see those colors. She knew that she was going to survive the fever, but it was going to take time. The thought of Igen made her nod softly.
"It's horrible. The Weyr was gone, and the fever crept in. Only a few eggs were able to be saved from the falling rocks. Thankfully, Lamassuth's was one of those eggs."
She smiled softly, loving the bond that she had, but her mind still went to a dark place. "I just wish that Rifturn would have been able to come with."
The depression could be seen in her eyes, and Lamassuth could hear it in her mind. Oranges and reds started to slowly mix in with the blues and greens, showing his jealousy and anger that she still thought of her son.
