[RUMOR] Firefighting

It was around this time last turn the fires started. There's no drought this summer but you've been assigned to keep watch for smoke anyway, just in case.

I'm bored, Mosraelth complained, rolling over onto his side and yawning. They'd come out here to the middle of nowhere to watch for smoke, but there wasn't any. Instead, he had to just... sit here. Bored.

It en't so bad, Shosha reassured him. There were a lot of worse things out there than doing honest work, even if that work mostly consisted of watching the sky. It was bright blue, and empty of clouds. She lay back in a patch of soft grass, one hand shading her eyes while her other arm served as a makeshift pillow. Her dark gray skirt was hiked up to her knees, showing the flight leathers and boots she wore under it.

Yes it is. I'm going to be bored to death. I'm going to die and it's all because of this boring duty.

This was stupid. S'atyl was better than this waste of time. She was a fighter- not some prop to ease the mind of frightened holders. Or at least she had been once. Maybe these days this was all she was good for. Useless as a fighter, which meant useless as a rider.

She should have been home with her dad. He at least still needed her. Maybe she should just quit.

Except...shard it...he'd always taught her that their family didn't give up.

"Can we patrol for bandits? Clear out wildlife? Pick...some plant thing or whatever it is holders do? ANYTHING useful? Or are we just supposed to sit here and stare?" she asked her partner, who was barely more than a weyrling and the sort of person who SHOULD be assigned this kind of busy work.

I don't think that sounds so bad. It's pretty, isn't it? We can see the farmland from here. Look how green it all is. It doesn't look very much like food at all

"If bandits were in the sky, perhaps," Shosha mused quietly. In truth though, she thought the idea of fighting off bandits to be utterly distasteful. Surely there would be quite a lot of blood, and she'd barely fumbled her way through the basic Weyrling combat lessons as it was.

"Also, I believe Holders usually pick things they've planted, or in places where they know things grew before. And most of us had duties that weren't anything to do with. I know more about picking the appropriate dress for an occasion and managing a Lady's schedule than picking plants. En't really relevant experience. And making sure things haven't caught fire again's important as well."

Mosraelth sighed loudly. His rider was far too content to simply do as she was told. It is bad. It's awful! Why can't we go fly? Who cares about pretty, pretty isn't fun! We should play tag! Tag is much better than this!

S'atyl had been raised to believe that no honest work was worthless but shards! That sounded like a stupid job. Why couldn't ladies pick out their own forsking dresses and figure out where they needed to be? How hard was it going to a few tea parties and looking good in a dress someone else had sewn?

"Not a lot of bandit riders during a Pass. Think it's just holdless folk doing the robbing these days," she said instead because that was rude and Shosha hadn't really done anything to deserve it, "I don't know what plants to pick but if someone'd tell me, I could pick them while the dragons keep watch. Instead of sitting here idle, wasting daylight."

We'd scare the humans. If they see us racing across the sky, they'll think something's wrong, Nineveth said calmly as she stayed where she was. Not to mention she didn't much want to play tag. She was quite happy here. But she was sure the brown's youthful exuberance served him well during threadfall.

"But that's the problem, ent it? Nobody's told us what plants we can pick. Just to sit and watch the sky for smoke." True, it was boring, but at least it was only boring, instead of dangerous, or violent.

You fly Thread and you're concerned about danger?!

That's different. I know what to do then. With bandits... Not so much.

"I could... braid your hair? That way you don't have to worry about it later? I know it en't what you'd call useful but it's better than nothing, right?"
