Morning Glory ~ { tag } Kate / A'ric

Not the large stone caverns that Weyr people are used to, these are buildings built on the top of the cliff, sometimes referred to as the Weyr Cliff. These buildings are all the same size, with multiple apartments for dragonriders to live in in each building. Because of space constraints, dragons sleep in large pavilions built around the dragonrider apartments.

[ Takes place a little after Sandalphonth's flight. ]

The tension that Dirce had felt for days was gone as she opened her eyes and started to stretch. There was a presence in her bed, someone that she didn't quite know, and she was well aware of the reasons why. Smug, though due to her dragon's feelings, she glanced over at her partner and watched him for a moment before quietly slipping from the bed and reaching for the robe she always kept on a chair nearby. A bath sounded nice right about now, then perhaps she could come out and start them up some lunch while he washed himself up.

But first, she wanted to check in on Sandy, see how the zultanite was feeling, though for all intents and purposes she could tell. Her dragon never felt such a sense of satisfaction, the need to show off and roll in the sensations that had been given to her by the great bronze that had flown with her. She almost laughed as she slipped in the water but was polite and refrained from doing so. *Feeling better, my love?*

I'm feeling rather well, yes. Came the reply, and it laced with smug contentment. She was stretched out underneath a bronze wing, though her stomach was starting to rumble and soon enough she would need food. Was the flight okay for you, Dirce? And there it was, the return of the dragon she knew so well. It was a relief to hear her again, and the woman nodded as she began to wash herself, sending a silent confirmation to the zultanite to relieve her of suspicions otherwise.

She heard shuffling coming from the sleeping chamber and suspected her flight partner was rising, so quickly finished up. She pinned her damp hair up as soon as she'd rubbed it dry, then worked on the rest of her body; towel on the skin, perfume infused lotion, fresh clothing, and that was it. After grabbing her keys and her belt and settling both into place, she stomped into her boots and felt ready to face the day.

Outside she saw him, and offered a smile as she went to fetch new drying cloths from the linen closet. "I'm afraid I don't have anything that smells more masculine as far as my soap sands go, but you're free to the bath if you'd like." She slipped into the bathing chamber and set the fresh things down for him. "And I can begin on lunch for the two of us while you're in there, have it at least partially completed by the time you rejoin me."

As the morning came, it seemed to the young man that it had come a bit to soon. To him, it felt as though they had only just fallen asleep. Wait, they? For a moment, the bronze rider didn’t understand why he had thought they. Then it dawned on him. The Flight! How could he have even forgotten about that? Behemoth had won too. As A’ric thought about that and smirked, stretching a little. The bronze was becoming quiet the ladies man apparently. The big bronze did have quiet a few Flight wins under his belt now.

Sighing contently, the man tried to clear his mind so that he could go back to sleep. In all honesty, he was just not ready to get up either. It would feel good to allow himself to sleep in a little. Besides, he knew it was probably just as early as it felt. Being awake right now was probably just the result of conditioning his body to do it.

Eventually he managed to drift off once again, although it wasn’t a deep sleep or anything like that. When he felt his partner moving, he just laid there, totally relaxed. While he was awake, he wasn’t fully awake. The bronze rider could tell that she got out of bed, but he decided to stay there. Maybe he could fall back asleep a little more.

A’ric laid there for another half a candle mark before he decided to finally just get up. Dark eyes glanced around, trying to find all of his clothes. It didn’t take him long to at least throw his undergarments and pants back on. For a moment, he briefly debated if he should wait in here for her to come back, or if he should go walk around the apartment and try and find her.

Eventually he decided he would at least walk out of the bedroom and see. The man ended up actually walking outside with just his boots and pants on for the time being, and was kind of shocked to see her out there. Chuckling he said, ”Well, I don’t really mind what I smell like, as long as I’m clean I guess. And lunch sounds great. I can help you once I get done cleaning up. I don’t mind, I actually really like cooking.”

Dark eyes glanced around and A’ric said, ”I can also help you carry all that stuff in if you want.”

Dirce smiled over at him and nodded, glad that he was in good spirits. "That sounds fantastic to me." She may have gone a little too overboard on things to cook, prepare and chop, but she had wanted to make sure she fed the flight winner well before he went his own way. That and she was hungry herself, so it made sense that there would have been a lot of food prepared to eat and tend to. "If you wanted to help set things out, we could do that now. I'm just about done with the hot dishes, so everything on plates or in bowls are ready to be set out now." She nodded towards the counter where the dishes in question were ready.

Outside on the pavilions, content and still sleepy, Sandalphonth rested next to Behemoth, certain still that she had chosen well for her first flight. He was strong and large, had flown her well, and the children they would have would be grand indeed. She was not in any mood to move or rouse him just yet, so she decided she would watch what was going on around her instead while curled up against him. Soon enough though she would want to fly, to bathe, to eat properly. But for now, that needn't be a priority. For now, there was only contentment at her mate's side.

A smile quickly made it’s way to the bronze rider’s face as the young woman readily agreed to what he had said. It honestly did sound like a good idea. Quiet honestly, the man knew that people normally didn’t offer to cook for the other person, but well, if people did not know by now, A’ric was not your typical man. Sure, he figured there were probably more guys out there like him, but he had yet to see more than one or two.

While he had finally gotten used to the whole Flight thing, waking up after it still made him a little uneasy. Why it made him uneasy, he still hadn’t quiet figured out. He should be completely used to it, completely used to every little aspect by now. It was probably just the fact that while he knew who he went to bed with, at least, in passing, it was still weird to wake up to someone that you did not have any true feelings for. Or well, at least for him. He was all about being the romantic, and this kind of thing obviously

After finding out where the wash room was, he got himself cleaned up rathe quickly, before meeting Dirce in the kitchen and seeing if there was anything that needed to be done. As she answered, he nodded, looking around at everything, his stomach giving a low rumble, A slight blush crept onto his features as he moved to grab the first set of things to take outside, hoping that the young woman hadn’t heard that. ”You didn’t have to go through the trouble of making all of this. But, I appreciate it none the less. Thank you.”

As he was setting things on the table, he gently reached out to Behemoth and sensed the bronze was still sleeping. Content and filled with pride at his most recent win, the man knew his dragon would probably still be sleeping for a while, so he let him be. They would be moving on soon enough, and there was no need for giant bronze to be awake at the moment.

Finally, he had all the dishes on the table, except for the ones the young woman had still been working on. Smiling softly he said, ”Everything looks amazing. Is there anything else I can help you with?”
