Upon your craggy cliff I sat, to gaze in awe and wonder at...
Lainy kicked her barefeet in the sand as she walked, watching Drift float long the shore in the ocean water. They had just surfaced from their shellfish gathering chore and her net bag of crustaceans of shellfish was slung over her shoulder as she took her time returning to the Kitchen to deliver them. Sela rode on her shoulder, her eyes darting around to catch any movement in the skies and making excited sounds when she saw something. The young woman paid her pets only half a mind as she wandered along, enjoying the sun on her skin even though the air was chillier than the summer.
It was only when both Drift and Sela start kicking up a fuss that Lainy looked around her to find out why. Several yards in front of her the sand was moving, falling away from eggs where it had been banked up to warm them. One by one, the air filled with firelizards of all colors all chittering, trilling and humming as they descended and dropped bits of food near the next. The bronzes and browns appeared to be on high alert as they dove near Lainy and drove her off from the nest. Drift flew into the air, ducking and diving as he added his hum to the sounds and the young woman ducked behind a downed tree where she could watch.
A gold appeared, likely the queen of the rather large faire, and dropped a fish that appeared to be half eaten and the humming picked up in pitch. The excitement caught the attention of a flock of wherries and Lainy watched as the males attacked and tried to drive them off. She froze in indecision, wanting to help with the wherries but remembering the swooping males driving her off as well.
Lainy watched as the large fish was taken by the flock, leaving very little food for the newly hatching firelizards to eat and her heart ached to do something about it.
Caressing waves upon the shore
OUTFIT: One piece swimsuit, the bottom half covered by sweats rolled up to the calves. Her feet are bare but the sandals are in the bag of shellfish and crustaceans she's carrying back from diving to gather them.
NOTES: The nest will go wild and bond with the faire, unless anyone else comes along to use their pet claim from the nest. Lainy will not be taking any.
