V'say grinned eagerly when K'rin backed him up as smoothly as though they had rehersed the plan together earlier. He glanced over at Sioriarth to try and guess whether he was buying it but at the moment the bronze seemed focused on K'rin and her green.
"I certainly am free to help look for clutches, in fact it could mean a new firelizard for all of us," V'say responded. In truth he already had enough firelizards especially since he just picked up a couple new pets recently. "Whenever you're ready we can mount up and get going K'rin."
He gave her a grateful look followed by a smile when she added the older Weyrlings likely took care of messages already which was a great excuse not to have any to do himself. V'say made a mental note to keep this tidbit of information for future use.
Sioriarth wasn't 100% convinced but knew the only way he could varify was to make inquires personally among the Weyrfolk to see if any had messages. As much as he was reluctant to let V'say get away with shirking his responsibilities he couldn't force others to give the boy work or assume he was being lied to by others. Besides he had never known Jenneth to be one who lied or shirked from duty herself. He nodded towards her before addressing her and their riders.
<Verywell, helping our clutchmate find a firelizard clutch is a suitable job, at least till a more appropriate duty comes up. Still it may be better to fill Firestone sacks or at least check to ensure enough is in stock,>
For a moment V'say felt his heart sink, worrying Sioriarth will end up checking with the Weyrlingmaster's dragon to see if help would be needed on that task but he realized Sioriarth had already agreed to him helpign K'rin. "I'm sure the Weyrlingmaster would have requested our help if he needed it, but K'rin needs my help so we best get going right?"
>As I said, it's a suitable job. Mount up then, the sooner started the quicker the task will be done.
Sioriarth shifted onto all fours and crouched down to make it easier for V'say to climb up onto his back.
V'say didn't take long to climb up, his natural flexibility and 2 Turns or so being a rider giving him the strength required to climb up his dragon's side. He settled himself into his seat and attached the flying straps, doubting he would need them for such a short trip but knew Sioriarth wouldn't leave till he did anyway. Once he was ready he looked over at K'rin and gave her a thumbs up. Sioriarth stepped back to give the green wing-room and waited for her to launch first before joining her in the air a few moments later.
Not long later they were flying over a cove not too far away from the Weyr but far enough away to lessen the chances Weyrfolk hadn't already searched for clutches there. V'say signaled they could land and the bronze headed down first. Being much larger than his green clutchsister he needed far more room to land and it made sense for him to go first. Once down he folded his wings and moved closer to the water to give the green space and lessen the chances of landing on any clutches. He did notice wild firelizards in the area but they had scattered as soon as he started descending.
V'say slid down Sioriarth's neck and headed over to K'rin as soon as she and Jenneth landed. Looking around he was amazed at how thick the nearby jungle was and how white the sands were. "What a beautiful place, I bet we can find a clutch easy here...then we'll have to swim to clean off all the sand and sweat."
ooc: I hope it's alright I moved them to the cove.. if not just let me know and I can edit.
