Time - Late Evening
Location - Solai's Quarters
@Ember | K'rios
After seeing her family grow before her eyes during her youth, Solai had come to know the telling signs of pregnancy, and know them well. Therefore, when she caught the tells displayed within her own form, Solai began to pay close attention so she might either confirm or deny that which her body told her. She supposed she should not have been too surprised, she thought one day as she looked at her conformation in the mirror. After all, as soon as she felt alive once again, and her belly wound no longer hurt nearly as much, Solai decorated K'rios's face with kisses and begged him to be gentle with her.
"I promise, I wouldn't ask if I thought you would hurt me," she assured him.
The most natural moment that could happen between man and woman followed, and was not a single occurrence. Even if Solai had to go easy on herself, she did still enjoy the dances shared with K'rios. While the experiences were not without their moments of discomfort, Solai could honestly say that what minimal pain she did endure mattered little when the triumphs of ecstasy washed over them both.
And now she was pregnant.
When she realised her condition, she realised she needed to begin by informing K'rios. Already, in her mind, she had formulated exactly how she was going to tell him. With her recovery coming to an end, Solai would have taken to the skies to rejoin her Wing, something both she and K'rios anticipated. Instead, Solai would have to let the man down gently, and explain that the reason for such disappointment was due to something miraculous and wonderful. She doubted her love would protest.
That night, Solai waited for K'rios to arrive in her quarters as he so often did. She always heated the water for him so she could wash him down after his long day in the skies and in the barracks. Tease as he might of the dragon stench and soot that clung to him, Solai always assured him she never minded. The towel laid on the ground with a fresh one folded to the side, she set down a bucket of water mixed with scented soap sand. She also had his favourite drink ready, and a small plate of food. After being grounded for so long, and kept away from strenuous activities, it felt good to Solai to be able to do all the little things that made K'rios happy. Once everything was laid out, she slipped to her couch and opened a book to read, waiting for K'rios to come into the apartment.
By now he had the keys, for she made sure he knew to always make himself right at home.
