[Atlas] Going Forwards

Tuckal's cot had been moved to the sands, and she was spending much of her time on it. Serapheth's clutch had been small, only ten eggs, but she knew her gold was proud. Extremely proud of them anyways. They were fine.

She had healers checking in, and she still had plenty of rest. The headache had lessened, her mobility had improved, but she still was lying down while having Jeremiah run errands for her. Journey was doing her part too, but everything was focused on the eggs.

It was only a matter of time before Negan came to talk, and she was as ready as she would ever be.

Negan had heard that Tukal didn't seem like she wasn't doing that good, that she nearly had a seizure during the flight. For the past few days he'd been showing off, cocky and sure of himself. Every notch turned up to eleven, but, he knew that he'd have to make an effort to go and talk to her and not get on every one of her nerves.

Hands in his pants pockets as he arrived at the sands, he was trying to think of what to say. A joke? Something serious? Plans for the future? Something about the eggs? A greeting would do for now, he decided. As he made his way over to the Weyrwoman, he also thought that he should ask of her condition.

"Well, as I live and breathe, you sure seem comfy out here." A pause. "Y'feelin' any better, Tukal? Heard you've been havin' a rough go."

Right on time.

Sort of.

Tuckal was sure she looked terrible, as she was kind of a ruffled lump on the cot and did not look particularly great. She made a vague motion over to the chair that Jeremiah usually stayed in. They were going to be okay, she was sure about it.

"Healers say I'm doing better. I can sit up for more than a few seconds without wanting to die, but I'm still supposed to be on bedrest for a few more days." At least she was trying to still run the weyr from a cot. "And congrats on the win, even if I heard Wireth is sensitive about the clutch size."

Negan sat in the chair she motioned to, glad that there was actually something decent to sit on. Tukal did not look good, he thought she looked like someone who had caught a bad cold and outright refused to move from bed, which was understandable. Had he had a seizure, Negan wouldn't move either.

"Well, hey," he said after a quick laugh at the 'wanting to die' comment. "I'm glad you're feelin' better. Good on the healers for keepin' you in bed too, you walkin' everywhere n' runnin' everything would probably keep you in rough shape for a while." A small smile broke out on his face. "I think he's more sensitive about all the people blaming the clutch size on him and him bein' short. He thinks the size is just fine, proud of em' all like he should be. Can't say that I'm not proud of em' too, seem like a good bunch."

That got her to laugh. A little bit. About as much as she could manage.

It was an improvement.

"Serapheth thinks they're fine, and that's what matters. She says they're healthy even if they're small. Ten eggs are better than none at all." Tuckal was going to take every victory she could. The flight was fine, she would be fine. She couldn't remember a lot now and then but this seemed okay. "She's gonna let me over to them as soon as I'm able, I haven't gotten a good look at them all yet."

Good, she was laughing. That meant he wasn't driving her nuts yet. Maybe the Weyr wouldn't burn down before Serapheth's next flight.

"Yeah, I'd hate to see her reject her own eggs. There's been too many problems for Fort the last little while, I think a nice small clutch is what we need. Give us all a break and give those candidates something to look forwards to." He knew that ten eggs was a small gold clutch, and that the eggs themselves were small. Maybe something was wrong with Serapheth, or maybe Tuckal's health impeeded on the clutch. But, Negan wouldn't bring that up right now. "I haven't gotten a look at them myself either, heard bits and pieces about them from other people though. Mind if I tag along when you go see?"

"Has Wireth even seen them fully yet?"

Tuckal had admittedly been out of it for a while. If Serapheth had been open about her eggs aside from an initial look at the clutching, she wasn't entirely sure. But the gold herself was dutifully tending to the eggs without a second thought to them both.

"Whenever I'm good enough to stand, I'll get a look at them." Or Jeremiah would carry her.

"Hm... no, no I don't think. We've both been meaning to, y'know. We'll probably tag along with you when you go and see em'."

Both Negan and Wireth were preoccupied with showing off, but they also knew that the queen and her rider needed their space. It wouldn't be proper- when were they ever proper?- to go and barge in on Serapheth and her eggs without a warning?

"Don't push it though, wait it out for your health. Don't want you collapsing and dying out there."

That got a chuckle out of her again. Laughing was definitely good, it was some semblance of normalcy in her otherwise terrible condition. She was not doing too great, but maybe keeping herself actually resting for a while would really do her well. There was nothing she could do otherwise but actually rest.

"I'll take it easy." Tuckal said with a weary nod. "Having collapsed on the sands once already, it's not something I would recommend."

It was a good thing that a chuckle was something that Negan had found easy to provide. Laughter was the best medicine, wasn't it? That and sleep, he supposed, Tuckal was lucky to be in a spot where the only thing she could really do was sleep. She needed it, it was the only way she'd get back on her feet again.

"You better. I don't wanna come out here and see you snoozing on the sands. Probably isn't even that comfortable. Sand getting everywhere, sounds itchier than homemade clothing that a grandma makes. Not to mention, you'd be unconscious too."

Hmph. You say that as if she did not need to be bullied into crawling onto the cot. Serapheth was there to call her rider out, and Tuckal just waved a dismissive motion.

"I'll be fine. I just need to spend time resting. And that's my plan from now until those eggs crack." With whatever sort of work in-between. There was enough to deal with, and she didn't have D'fid to rely on. Whatever Negan did... well, she had to trust him.

Negan laughed hard at that, of course Serapheth would call her out. "Trust me, Sera, I wouldn't doubt it for a second that she had to be dragged onto it. I'd think something was very wrong if she wasn't!"

"Yeah, a couple naps and you'll be right as rain. And, y'know, whatever the healers come up with. You rest and I promise I won't run this place into the ground." He'd be good, it wasn't like he was actively trying to ruin the Weyr, it just seemed sometimes like he was. "Cross my heart."

Tuckal managed to chuckle. She was happy to have a Weyrleader to pitch in, even if it was just getting him to make sure drills were run and that there were a few things that she didn't have to worry about. Policy was still her job, even from the cot.

"Hey, as long as things keep running smoothly, even if I'm signing policy letters from here." She said. "If you can at least handle the little things, then we're all good."

"A few letters won't kill ya, unless you manage to get umpteen million papercuts. I don't think anyone can be that clumsy." If he thought about it, he could probably name at least a handful of riders who were clumsy enough to do that.

"The little things? Listen, I will have everything running in tip-top shape for ya. I will especially make sure that all the wingleaders aren't runnin' their wings into the ground at least once a day. You know how some of them are. I mean, we trust em' enough to run a wing but I'm not sure if I'd trust em' with about anythin' else." He gave a small chuckle.
