Awkward Misunderstandings [Woky]

Soonyhano was enjoying the winter weather. He'd spent the better part of the day outdoors, and now had returned to eat his supper, face still flushed red with the cold. If he could have gotten away with it, he probably would have eaten outside in the snow as well; however, all of the food was indoors.

He leaned back in his chair, mug of tea in his hands and his mostly-empty plate in front of him. He was content. Content, and slowly coming to terms that he'd probably have to leave Fort if he wanted any chance of Impressing. Just like he'd had to leave Telgar. Still, High Reaches was getting better than it had once been, and even should have a respectable winter.

Still, he'd enjoy this place while he could. He'd rather come to like it in his time here.

The Devils were growing, and it looked like, for once, things were looking up.

Tuckal still had something to do.

She had scoured the Weyr for a single canddiate, the one that Serapheth had unintentionally wrecked, as she discovered. She did think that he had potential, but Serapheth probably shouldn't have said anything. It wasn't like she could really tell her gold what to do and what not to do when it came to the eggs, it wasn't like she was laying eggs.

Journey had been the one to pop in from Between and land right on Soonyhano's head. She cheeped at him, her presence signalling to Tuckal where he was.

So she approached.

"Soonyhano, right? Do you have a moment?"

Soonyhano looked up with surprise as a fire lizard abruptly landed on his head, cheeping softly. She wasn't Meatball—the green was asleep back on his pillow—but that was all he could really tell with her on his head where he couldn't see.

The Weyrwoman's sudden appearance was rather less expected than that of a fire lizard, as some fire lizards were prone to gregariousness and would visit whoever they liked, whenever they liked, paying no mind to the inconvenience it might cause anyone.

Why in Faranth's name was she looking for him specifically?

"Yes, I have a minute. More than, even. There are no lessons today, and my chores were in the morning."

Journey cheeped triumphantly, fluttering off of the candidate's head and over to Tuckal's shoulder. The Weyrwoman took a chair, sitting a respectable distance away.

"I wanted to apologize for Serapheth. She insists to me, still, that she made no errors, but getting any more answers out of her has been a nightmare. I apologize for what she said, to promise something like that without really knowing is... cruel." She said, trying to be as sincere as possible. She did feel bad about it.

Serapheth, however, never felt bad.

Oh. It was about this. Soonyhano looked away, trying and failing to hide his hurt expression.

"It's fine, honestly. I don't blame you. Or her. It's not the first time I've been left standing. Not even close."

Though if there were no more eggs, it may well have been the last. He ran a hand through his hair, trying to think of some way to reassure her. To reassure himself.

"I don't think she did it maliciously, at least."

It was a relief that he didn't blame Serapheth, but Tuckal did feel some twinge of guilt still. Maybe she would feel this until he did impress. It wasn't like she could force Serapheth to rise again.

"Still... if there's anything I can do to make up for it... I don't know what that is, or anything in my power, just... let me know." She at least tried. She couldn't force a dragon to pick Soon.

Soonyhano looked up at Tuckal, then away, his blue eyes wide and concerned as his face turned a brilliant shade of red.

"I... I think you may have gotten the wrong impression of me, Weyrwoman. I know that you have a type and I'm sure at least some men are... flattered by your interest, and I'm sure it's very flattering but I uh... you're not my type. I much prefer... uh, men."

What?

Oh.

Oh no.

Tuckal sat up, stiff as a board. Her face too went completely red, even her scar seemed more pink.

"That-- oh Faranth that isn't what I meant!" She tried to insist, looking extremely embarrassed in her own right. Oh no oh shards oh forsk oh shells and crackdust what did she do. "I meant.... shards I'm going to just... leave I'm going to make this worse if I even try-"

The color did not subside from Soonyhano's face. If anything, it grew deeper at the realization that he'd misunderstood and made this considerably worse. This was definitely his fault and he definitely needed to find a way to fix it.

"It's not... you don't need to... I mean, I'm sure you have far more important things to do than try to cheer up a Candidate and... shards, I'm so sorry."

"I just... I wanted to try and I definitely gave the wrong impression. I'll be... in my office or something."

Tuckal could not flee the scene fast enough. She had to. Even with Journey still happily cheeping away on her shoulder, it was probably best if she never talked ever again. Maybe she could just hide forever, that would be fine right?
