"Did I say deadglow? I'm sorry, I though you were my cousin Ounali. She's always bumping into me, or it's me bumping into her. Did I hurt ya'? I'm bluerider F'nal, by the way. I was hoping to get something to eat, or at least finding Ari walking around. But I guess there's no hope of that, I'm still getting lost around here and I'm a rider!" He laughs, finally standing up. "But I shouldn't be keeping you out here. How would you like to come see my weyr? You can see Selinoth too!" You accept his offer and follow him through the weyr.
"What do think you're doing, attacking guests?" F'nal scolds the little creature. "I'm sorry traveller, he always does this. I guess I should have warned you. This is Jilan. I found a clutch on the beaches near Glass Island Weyr, and took them to the weyr. In return, I got an egg, and here's my flit. He can be annoying, but he's a good companion. The weyr's just up ahead, you can go ahead this time, though I promise there aren't any more flits lurking in the darkness." He grins, and you wonder if your host has more of a sense of humor than you first thought.
F'nal's weyr is fairly clean and nicely decorated. A carved wooden table with a stone jug stands in one corner flanked by four matching chairs. Thick carpets in shades of red, blue, and green line the floors. Tapestries grace the walls, and you can just see the large light blue dragon basking in the sun on the ledge.
"Ari's green. Well, Arilani actually, but that's sort of long. My weyrmate, though neither of us ever considered that possibility. We were friends as weyrlings." He flushes, but continues. "Sel used to flirt with her during weyrling classes and not pay attention." He smirks at his dragon, who snorts and pretends to be asleep.
"Now actually, we have a son, Hannal. Headwoman Baliana has taken him on as a fosterling, but he still comes around to play with the flits. He's a good boy, and Seli likes him." You congradulate F'nal and he thanks you.
"My mother was estatic about her first grandchild being born. She's been getting mad at my brothers for Turns because they won't settle down and get married. I think she's going to send my youngest sister to the weyr as soon as possible to keep an eye on him."
You finish your klah while chatting awhile with your host. Finally, you look out onto the flight ledge and arise with a start. The sun is just peeking over the horizon on the eastern side of the weyrbowl. F'nal follows your glance and laughs. "Looks like we talked the whole night through, friend. And Selinoth and I have to get up early to learn about being on watch. I'd offer you a bed, but I usually just sleep with Seli so I'm afraid it isn't very clean." He shrugs ruefully and you say that it's all right, then leave to go down to the kitchens. Maybe you can get an early breakfast.
