Dhiammarath And Hannah Enjoy A Solitary Moment

Logfile from Hannah.
September 09, 2003

And on Pern …
The time is 00:41.
It is before dawn of the sixtieth day of summer.
It is the thirty-seventh Turn of the Tenth Pass.
It is a summer late night.

Southeastern Bowl (#529)
This area of the bowl is the highest point of the bowl floor; from here, it slopes down and to the northwest, spilling out to the plateau below the wide gap in the Weyr rim to the west. Various tunnels here lead into the Weyr's inner caverns; the living caverns, hatching grounds, and main Weyr tunnel all branch off from here. To the west lie the stables where the Weyr's runners are housed. There is also a stone stairway that leads up to the Weyrleader's weyrs.
It is a summer late night.
Perched on rocky crags about the bowl are three firelizards.
Bronze Nhamarath, brown Banoth, brown Morath, brown Xylyth, blue Decuth, blue Celth, brown Rilskiath, green Suith, gold Dhiammarath, bronze Soquilith, and blue Agzanth are here.
You see Gritty-Grassy Green Handprints, Kiva, and Pookie the Wonder Kitty here.
Obvious exits:
Hatching Cavern Central Bowl Weyr Tunnel Living Caverns
The bottom stairs are buried in the bowl's dark sand.

Hannah slips down from the landing overlook, finding her lifemate where she left her. "Staying out of the weyr tonight, love?" Goldrider reaches up to lightly touch the top of her lifemate's foreleg, smiling softly. "You look very pretty after your oiling yesterday."

Dhiammarath stretches and reguards her life mate, and almost seems to chuckle. «Thank you… and it is quite a lovely night. I felt it a pitty to sleep without at least greeting them properly» She half teases reacing the bright tip of her tail to curl around Hannah's waist. If she could purr she sould But that that wouldn't be dignified.

Hannah leans into the gold's embrace, "Yes, the stars are beautiful tonight." Laying her cheek against her lifemate's soft hide, she adds, "Late night is some of my favorite times, you know. It's all quiet and soft. The weyr settling down to sleep."

Dhiammarath stretches her neck out infront of her but makes a soft sound of agreement. «That is what night is for… and I do not mean sleep. It is for the softness and quietness no matter how harsh the day becomes.»
Listening to the mental voice of her lifemate, Hannah tilts her head to the side. "Yes," she says on a sigh. "Puts the rest of the day into perspective." Pausing, she idly traces patterns lightly on the gold's hide, "We've been invited to a party Nuff is holding for Pern's leadership. It's on a little island.."

«You do not sound excited,» Dhiammarath's mind voice is curious though the large head turns back to regard her rider quizically. «When is this party. And I am assuming if you go you will be brining that young man of yours?»
Hannah shrugs her shoulders slowly, "I don't know. I guess I'm apprehensive. Must be the shyness in me or something." At the mention of her "young" man, the weyrwoman smiles almost dreamily. "Yes, I will. I love R'ave, even when he's moody. Rhavie's getting so big.. Time really does fly. Why, it seems almost yesterday when we were all living in the barracks."

Dhiammarath snorts and whuffles Hannah a bit, dropping her dignity as she never would if she thought someone else was watching. «I will be with you, you need not worry. You do not seem shy in your duties here. See this simply as an extension of them. or… perhaps see it as homecomming.»

Hannah affectionately rubs the dragon's lower jaw, "Very true. It's easier when I'm comfortable. But in large crowds, I tend to make a fool of myself, I think." Lower lip is nibbled, "I don't know what I would do without you, love."

Dhiammarath nudges Hannah. «YOu do not have to know what you would do without me because we will never be appart.» One of her few simple blindspots. It's not a possibility for this to be otherwise. «I have not seen you make a fool of yourself.»

"Of course not, love." Hannah chuckles a little, then adds," I feel foolish all the time. Truly, sometimes I wonder if it's all a pretense." One slender arm sweeps around to encompass the weyr, "Maybe pretense is the wrong word. But it just seems like this can't be me. Senior weyrwoman of Ista Weyr." She tilts her head back so that she can look directly into her lifemate's glittering eye, "You know? I still feel like I'm newly impressed sometimes. I wonder if I'm doing a good job.."

Dhiammarath reguards her rider long and hard. «You are doing a good job, I have heard none complain,» Tail and muzzle both nuge the rider trying to reassure. «YOu and I both have learned much as we have done this job,» Dhammarath seems utterly unperturbed. «YOu have met every challange that presetned itself… therefore how can you not be doing a good job?»

Hannah plucks at her sleeve and murmurs softly, "It's probably just insecurity. I spend much of my time working to make sure things get done. I have great help, but still there's a part of me that feels if I'm not working until the wee hours that something is not right." Quirking her lips a little, "But it does make the times of escape all that more precious."

Dhiammarath whuffs again. «Then go to the celebration and enjoy yourself, and do not worry about such things any longer…» She pauses then considers. «Or at least not any longer tonight. Tomorrow has enough worries of it's own. Today if you are done you are done, enjoy yourself.»

Hannah lifts a hand to hide her yawn, "Yes, you are correct. I think I'm going to head up to the weyr and sleep until it's time to get up. Which isn't too much farther from now." She can't help but lean into her lifemate to get one last touch. "Thank you, love."

Dhiammarath nods. «I will be in shortly, sleep well, and say hello to the hatchling for me… I think I would still knock her over if I breathed on her.» She shifts slightly, still relaxed but she, too, will be heading to sleep soon.

Hannah giggles softly, "She's sturdier than she looks. Don't be too long.. I like it when you sleep in the weyr. It's comforting." With a last final pat, goldrider heads into the weyr.
