It was a long time before thoughts could be organized. Hedara could organize her thoughts easily but only after the roil of emotions had subsided. So when things were back to normal she stared at the ceiling for a moment and tried to figure out what this was going to do to her schedule. Of course that was really just a filler in her mind. She was trying not to think about the stranger in her bed. See, this is a lot of what she had kinda hoping would not happen. She didn't know much of anything about this rider who she would be working with from now on. She let a sigh escape her before slipping out of the bed and getting dressed, still not looking back yet. Before she could pull some boots on a green flitter appeared and made a beeline for Hedara. Ivy had finally returned. She was holding a shiny stone, a present for Temperanth. Apparently she had gathered that her larger cousin didn't need cheering up any more and had brought it back to Hedara instead. Hedara smiled faintly as she accepted the stone, and gave the firelizard a pet. For the moment she had forgotten about the day, and was more interested in her friendly flitter.
Of course, until Ivy chirped at the new person. Who was he? She must meet the new human! Hedara caught the firelizard in her arms and silently tried to calm her. Why? Why did she have to be quiet? Was it sleeping time? Ivy poked her head over Hedara's shoulder to get a better look.
Since they weren’t an entanglement of limbs, X’kel completely missed the woman leaving her bed. He hadn’t thought her the type that would stick around, but even so, he wasn’t especially fond of women taking off on him after what he supposed was a one-night stand. Flights were really hard to peg in his mind when it came to the sexual encounters they bore. He could always just say that the whole thing had been an accident, if that’s what the werywoman would prefer. It didn’t seem like to him that her dragon had really made a positive decision on which suitor she’d wanted. He could feel that his whole situation was going to be touchy… He did well with touchy.
”Here I was thinking that I’m not that bad,” he spoke out, breaking the awkward silence. While she’d been turned around preparing for the great escape he’d already sat up and was watching the whole “get ready for take-off” run around that she was clearly doing. ”So then, where does this leave us? I feel kind of grimy not even getting to the first date, but I mean, hey, some women just prefer to ask questions later.” He heaved a sigh and shook his head, rolling his eyes afterwards with a: ”Well, nothing a bath can’t fix. Care to join me?” So he liked to talk, no harm done. He probably could have done without the witty comments, but then he wouldn’t be his absolutely charming self.
Her flitt seemed interested in him at least, that was something. ”Your little creature there seems to have a good judge of character,” he smirked, referring to the flitt’s attempts to get to him. ”You can let her go you know. I don’t bite other species. Same species only.” He studied the backside of the weyrwoman with a rather lewd expression on his face. He could appreciate a good piece of… woman. She was alright, he nodded decidedly. He’d be able to make a more informed opinion were she to turn around, but she was being a tad too rude for that…
Hedara paused, Ivy still in her arms. He finally spoke, although she had kinda thought he wasn't going to notice. Realistically she hadn't paid as much attention as she thought, mostly because everything was hectic all the time and she wanted to keep her schedule going. So worry had gotten the better of her, unfortunately. She would have to fix that. Her expression was flat and unamused for his comments, but she didn't answer them. Until he mentioned Ivy.
"It's not you I'm worried about, but if you insist." She released the green flitt, who dashed to the other rider and landed on his shoulder. Ivy started to investigate him, sniffing the strange-human-male in her home. Hedara turned around, watching the rider get investigated by her firelizard. Ivy was trying to figure him out, in no small part because Hedara seemed annoyed by him. Why? Strange-human was new to her, but why so annoyed? Obviously there was something he was doing to annoy. He wasn't doing anything but talking though. How confusing. After the Green flitter was done crawling over his head and such she took off again, hovering around the bed. She chirped once, as she standard greeting, continuing to stare at him.
"Now, for the time being, if you want a day to get settled then it would be best if I showed you around the Weyr tomorrow, though if you wanted to meat Tr'veal he would be happy to meet you today. Other then that..." Hedara paused, judging her desire to be completely done with him today with the practicality of the future. Deciding quickly she Walked back to him and held out her hand. "I would formally like to introduce myself. I am Hedara, I ride Ice Temperanth. I look forward to working with you from now on."
