About a sevenday before Turn's End, 2049
Warm, clear skies
Since arriving at Atricis Weyr, one of Kane's favorite past times was watching the star lizards fly around the Weyr Yard after it got dark. Not that it was always an impressive light show, sometimes it was only Boop's little bronze specks that the man could see, but it was still always enjoyable. All to the better even, when he managed to get there during his free time in between chores and lessons, and there really weren't many people around. Usually by that time, the dragon and daywher people had gone to bed, and the wher people were out on their duties. It was not a huge window of time, but it was generally enough to give the man and his starlizard a few quiet moments.
Turn's End was approaching, and honestly Kane was very glad he was where he was. Back with the group, there would have been a big job to deal with, and then a big party to celebrate it after, and mourn any dead. He...The man shook his head as he realized he really did not want to deal with all of that anymore. Boop seemed to sense a bit of his slight anxiety, and swooped down, chittering at him, ”Ya, I know, I should quit being mopey, right?” He grinned, and petted the little bronze starlizard as he wound around in Kane's lap.
The peace was calming, and the Wher Candidate basked in it. He knew he would have to get up soon, go start his chores, grab some food maybe even first. But for the moment, he would sit back in the grass at the edge of the Yard, and enjoy the warm air. Boop shifted slightly, then jumped back up into the air. But instead of heading back into the sky, the starlizard chittered and went for the tree line, setting off a bit of an alarm sound. Was something there? Or someone? Kane sat up, and peered in the direction Boop was alerting at.
At some point during this Thread, I am planning on Kane somehow finding a flitt egg(or his current 'lizard does, or something, we'll see what happens, lol). It may or may not hatch when he finds it, I'm not sure yet.
