Like mother, like son [Atlas]

Nhelin had been quite busy with taking care of Nhelisk, but now that the little gold was asleep in her quarters, she could finally spend some time talking to Linny. After the hatching, she'd been exhausted, but it was a new day. Night, rather--and she couldn't be happier. She'd Impressed--even if it was to the most difficult gold, even if their personalities clashed--as had her son. No dragons for him, just a lovely, sweet blue, the sort who seemed to make him so happy. She was quite pleased by that. He deserved someone who made him so happy, after all.

As she knocked on his door, she called out, "Linny." It was "morning" for handlers, but he would need to get used to waking up nice and "early," if he was going to start the wherhandler life. As an ex-dual candidate, he wasn't especially used to the schedule, but he would adjust. She would make sure he excelled.

"Nhelin," she added, feeling it only important to state her own name. Other words just got in the way. He likely knew her voice, but just in case...she knew he'd open up for his mother.

Linny was getting used to his new schedule, and to be honest, it was sort of messing with his head. He figured it was the equivalent to living your whole life in Fort Weyr, for example, and then moving all the way down to Semaca. It was his new morning now, which was evening, and Linirask was curled up at the end of his bed. The knock on his door had woken him up, but not enough for him to really understand whatever whoever was saying on the other side. Hopefully, he wasn't late for a class and his teachers had marched themselves down here to wake him up and rat on him for it.

Once the person said their name, he woke up then. It was his mom! "One second, mother!" He quickly rushed around to put on something that wasn't pyjamas. Sure, she was his mom, that didn't mean that he wanted to embarrass himself in front of her. Once ready, he made his way to the door and opened it with a smile. "Mom! It's so nice to see you! Tooooooo what do I owe the pleasure?"

Nhelin waited patiently, assuming that her son was getting dressed. She was pleased that he didn't take too long. Efficient but professional. A good way to be. She nodded in greeting, before glancing past him, wondering if his room was organized and clean. She quickly looked back to him. He was a wherhandler now, not a little child she had to take care of. A small smile touched her face. "Congratulations." The word was simple--typical for the concise woman--but it was wrapped in pride and affection. Very few people saw a softer side of Nhelin, but Linny was one of them. "Can I come in?" She asked, though her firm tone made it sound more like a statement than a question.

Nhelisk stirred slightly, but didn't awaken. Hatching was exhausting, it seemed, and Nhelin certainly didn't mind. It gave the woman more time to process how she felt about the gold. And more uninterrupted time with her son. She put a hand on his head, ruffling his hair. He wasn't a child anymore, but he would always be her child.

Hearing his mother congratulate him made him smile even wider than before. It made him feel proud of himself... even more so than he already was from actually Impressing a wher. All around, Linny was practically walking on sunshine. "Thanks, mom! Congratulations to you too, I mean! You're the one who Impressed to the gold! How cool is that?" He thought it was VERY cool. His mom, the goldhandler. How many people could say that they were there when their mother Impressed to a gold ANYTHING. Not many, but he sure could!

"Yeah, yeah! Of course-" Oh wait, forsk, Linirask was asleep. They had to be tired if they were still asleep with Linny being as excited as he was. He was sure they could keep quiet though. "Yeah, just. They're just um... Linirask is asleep over on the bed, so as long as we're quiet we should be good. I don't want to wake them up if they're tired, you know?" He stepped out of the way of the door so that his mother could come in. He gestured over to two chairs that he had in his room. "If you want to sit, there are some seats over there so we don't disturb them."

As Linny commented on the color of her wher, Nhelin just shrugged. "Whers are whers," she responded. She certainly wasn't thrilled with thinking of Nhelisk as something special. Nhelisk seemed to think she was special enough. "Gold or white, doesn't mean shards."

Nhelin had already spoken with some degree of certainty, and she certainly wasn't about to change her mind about this visit. Instead, she just nodded. She could be quiet. Could Linny, is the question? He seemed so energetic and excited today. It was infectious, causing a tiny, tight smile to appear on her face. "Will be quiet, then," she replied.

She glanced to the sleeping Linirask, before making her way over to the chairs in question. She sat down, looking over to Linny. "Are you happy?" she asked, the meaning clear. Was he happy with Linirask? Nhelin couldn't really say she was as thrilled with Nhelisk as she'd thought she would be, but even the little gold was growing on her.

Well, she wasn't wrong. Who was he kidding, it was his mom! She was never wrong. "Yeah. Yeah. I mean... you're right, of course." He nodded. "...But it is a little cool, and a bit of an honor! Since the wherleaders gave you the gold egg. You know... it's just... it's cool." He thought it was very cool, even though from what he gathered, Nhelin didn't think it was nearly as cool.

"Good, good good." He sat opposite his mother, and tapped his fingers as quietly as he could manage on his lap. "Yes!" Forsk, that was way too loud. Way too loud. He shushed himself before glancing fondly over to his wher. "I said to be quiet and didn't follow my own words. Yes, I'm happy! Linirask is... they're awfully kind. I'm afraid I love them far too much already. They're so tiny! And cute..."

He looked back over at his mother with a smile. "And you? Are you happy?"
