[open] communication, or something

"Did you ever notice that my scar and your marking are the same?" Bayard took the smallest brush to Little One's rough patch, eyes diverted so that he missed the glare his dragon directed at him.

Excuse you? Are you comparing my markings to scaring? Like they are flaws? Shrugging, Bayard looked up and squinted at the floating white. Raidoth was stretched out across as much of the lake as he could take up. He claimed it made floating easier.

Bayard just thought he was being greedy.

"Kind of."

Scars are flaws. I, on the other hand, are flawless. Smiling, Bayard dipped his head, wayward brown hair waving freely as he shook his head. The brush scraped softly between Little One's head knobs, making the flit croon happily.

Why don't you scrub me that way? Raidoth questioned suspiciously, watching now.

"Because you always tell me I'm doing it wrong."

Well, there was that, Raidoth had to agree. Well you usually are. He sniffed. And you forgot to brush your hair again. He chided. Really, he had the most disheveled looking rider.

The dragon was walking with her rider, nosing him as he removed his gloves from work. He worked in the healer's wing and had a busy day tending to injuries. The green walked with him quietly, smiling before finally noticing the two bickering.

Kouichi noticed a bit and moved to touch the neck of the green, "Kuzoth, do you want to see your clutchmate?" The other felt a tinge of.. jealousy when he suggested that. Raidoth was always a dragon she had been jealous of as a young dragon. However, she nodded and walked over towards the white.

"Raidoth, it is quite wonderful to see you again."

Raidoth paddled in a circle, watching Bayard scrub the firelizard who had come before him. Small One. What a dumb name. He was very glad Bayard had not had anything to do with naming himself. He'd probably be called Big One.

Speaking of small and big, Raidoth raised his dripping head and twitched his wings along the waters surface. Hello Kuzoth. Clutchmate, clutchmate. Did you want to come swimming? It was the only thing he liked doing as much as fighting Thread.

Looking up, Bayard grinned greetings for the greenpair. "Good afternoon." He called cheerily.

"I would be happy to." The green dragon slipped into the water beside the other, splashing the water on her scales. She sighed gently, turning to the other.

Kouichi waved, moving to sit down beside the other, "Good afternoon. How are you doing today?" He had been busy lately in the healer's hall, as he was counting supplies on preparation for the next fall.

Suddenly they were a foursome. Raidoth was pleased to have some to quite literally swim circles around. Wings tucked in now so that he did not accidentally slap his clutchmate with one.

Isn't fighting Thread glorious? He asked her. All his hearts passion bent to the work. Bayard ducked his head and rolled his eyes on the shore.

"Soggy," he chuckled in answer. "How about yourself?" Polite conversation. He could do this. Voice actively moderated. Small One chirped happily from the bucket he was being bathed in.

Kuzoth shook her head, looking at her clutchmate, "Well.. I don't really fight Thread like the rest of you. Kouichi's a healer, so most of our time is spent flying out to recover and help mend those who were injured. We aren't in combat much and, even when we are, it's usually us using evasive maneuvers to get to those we need to tend to." She said that as if she had pride in her voice, as she was proud of her and Kouichi helping those in need.

"I'm honestly a bit tired." He chuckled weakly, "I've been flying around with some of the squads to ensure none of the dragons or riders get hurt while training."

That's terrible! Raidoth cried, snorting water up his nose. Rumbling, he coughed it back up. Dragons are supposed to flame Thread!

"Raidoth!" Bayard barked from the shore, rinsing Small One a little too vigorously. Work comes in different forms. Think of whers digging burrows and the Weyrlady uses one of them flamethrowers. Bayard never complained or argued when Raidoth scolded him, but it upset him to hear that tone in his dragon's voice.

Raidoth seemed to hang suspended in the water. Frozen like a bouyant statue. This is correct. My apologies Kuzoth.

"Sorry about that." Bayard said softly, chin pointing to his menace of a white. "Sometimes I think training gets trickier than actual Threadfall." Picking his flit up from the bucket, Bayard wrapped him up in a blanket waiting in his lap. Thread scared him. But flaming it from Raidoth's back made him feel better, somehow.

Kuzoth giggled a bit at her clutchmate's reaction, her tail flickering in the water. "Oh no, it's positively alright, Raidoth. While fighting Thread back is incredibly important, if there are no healers around, it could mean for more causalities. A lot of dragons were injured in Thread, along with their riders. Healers are there to make sure they are able to fly back to safety, even if our supplies can be limited depending on how severe the Thread is."

Kouichi nodded a bit, "Tell me about it. Sure, I'm not in combat for the most part, but I still have to practice evasive maneuvers to ensure I can get to someone injured on the battlefield."

She was laughing at him! For a moment, Raidoth was deeply offended, until her remembered such emotions were unworthy of himself. He knew he was great. A bit of giggling from a green did not change that. And he had just shouted at her.

Which made the giggling confusing.

Head sinking into the water until he had to close his inner lids or get his eyes wet, Raidoth had to very ungraciously accept the importance of her work. Sounds like we all need more drills then. Far too many accidents happening. Bayard groaned.

"We have not had to help catch any dragons yet." Or riders either. But Bayard was less concerned about catching people. They were much smaller than dragons. Which makes them smaller targets. Raidoth pointed out. But smaller than his dragon, was the thought Bayard kept to himself. Raidoth wouldn't like it.

Kuzoth nodded a bit, stretching and just lounging near her brother. She really liked the warmth, especially now that it was summer. As she floated there, she looked at him, "Kouichi thinks we should start training more as well, seeing as those two eggs disappeared.." Kouichi had felt horrible when the eggs had disappeared, Kuzoth feeling the same. "He thinks if we just had a little bit more training, we could have found the eggs.." 'And they wouldn't have gone to High Reaches..' She spoke quietly to her brother, a bitter tone in her voice.

Kouichi nodded, "That's pretty good, with all of the ongoing tension in the air."

"And all the bad Threadfall." Bayard agreed. He was very, very, very thankful he and Raidoth had escaped unscathed for the most part. Its because we practice so often. The white preened, glad of a chance to gloat over his dedication.

Training is the most important thing, after performance. The doing! Their sole purpose! Raidoth might have gone off on a tangent except Bayard coughed pointedly from the shore. So instead, he sighed, making ripples across the surface of the lake. I can help you, if you need it. He was sure he'd make an excellent teacher.

Kouichi nodded a bit, "A lot of people were injured this time.. We are lucky we did not suffer any causalities." From what he had heard, the other weyrs did have causalities. He felt horrible when he heard. Sure, he had not known those who had died, but maybe.. if he had been at the other weyrs instead.

"People could have died here in Fort Weyr, Kouichi. Sometimes, we can't save everyone. It hurts, but we have to move on." Kuzoth gave him a soft expression when she looked at him. He nodded a bit, looking at her. That was true. If he had been at a different weyr, it was possible Fort wouldn't had enough healers to treat injuries or save those who were falling to their deaths.

"I would so greatly love to train with you, Raidoth." Kuzoth smiled at the white. He was quicker than she was, or at least she thought. Perhaps if she became faster, her and Kouichi would be more efficient in their work.
