((Okay... So I am going back on earlier statement a little... And I may again with Zara.... But I want to post C'oud and Hetreath.))
C'oud sipped a cup of klah, his thoughts wandering quite far away. He was, as usual, thinking about those who had returned to Water Fall Valley Weyr. Where he had Impressed Hetreath. He often questioned his decision to remain and always came up with just about the same rationale every time. He ran a hand over his blond hair and sighed. His blue eyes looked tired. He hadn't been sleeping well lately, for whatever reason.
He felt somewhat isolated lately. He wondered why. He was almost certain that it had much to do with the fact that many of the people he was close to were no longer here, were busy, or some other such thing. He shrugged it off. Sure, it was a feeling, but it was nothing, really.
He thought about his sister for a moment. His parents and brother were deceased. But his older sister was very much alive and now living at Sky Mountain Weyr. Lairyn. He hadn't spoken to her lately... But... They had never really been close.
Mine? Hetreath's groggy mental voice break through C'oud's thoughts.
Yes, Hetreath? C'oud said, not immediately responding to the implied question.
Are you alright, Mine?
I'm fine, promise.
The Bronze was unconvinced, but said no more. C'oud smiled slightly. That was so typical of his Hetreath...
