Time Flies [Gengen]

Jae didn't miss the Lower Caverns as much as she had once had. She had long ago turned over the last of her storerooms to other Weyrfolk and as the turns had passed, she found she no longer knew the names and faces of every drudge and weyrfolk in these halls.

She had plenty to fill her days. Riding was hardly idle work and Kemma and Zappath needed someone sensible to keep an eye on them. Her life wasn't the one she'd envisioned but it was never the less a happy one.

Still, Jae sometimes liked to come down to the Lower Caverns. As a full rider, she was under no obligation to help with chores, but it felt wrong to sit with her hands idle, so she rolled up her sleeves and washed her share of dishes, as she listened to the latest stories of the weyr's unseen corners. She would never be the sort of rider to feel less dignified with her hands were covered in suds and while she had a life of her own, she still liked to be here, in the warm heart of the weyr.

Kinkajou was, frankly, surprised when a rider chose to join them in their chores. She stared distractedly for a moment, shaking her head and getting back to work. Would it be rude of her to ask why the bluerider was down here? No... not if she said it in the right way!

"We don't get a lot of riders helping with our chores." She started, offering a cheerful smile. "We're grateful for the help... but I'm curious! Why are you down here with us? Just looking for something to do?" Some riders had to participate in chores as punishment, right? But that didn't feel like the case here. This rider didn't look disgruntled in the slightest by what she was doing.

Jae didn't know the girl who wore a candidate's knots. When Jae was younger, she had tried to make it a point to know all the candidates, by face and by name. But so many came and went that it was hard to keep track when she wasn't working besides them and the habit had slipped over the turns.

"Don't you know? The Lower Caverns is where all the best stories are told. But it's rude to stand around and stare when there's work to be done," Jae said simply, returning the candidate's smile, "I'm Jae of Blue Zappath."

"Best stories? Well... A bunch of candidates gossiping, surely!" She grinned widely, returning some of her attention to the task at hand. "I like hearing what riders talk about too. Some of them have some crazy stories from other weyrs. Oh, Jae! I'm Kinkajou!" She went to offer her hand, before thinking better of it. Sopping wet and covered in suds? That didn't sound like a great first handshake.

"Later. I wanna shake your hand later." She said instead, plunging her hands back into the water.

"If you think Candidates and riders are the only ones with good stories, you should spend some time listening to the weyrfolk," Jae said with a smile, "Threadfall and dragons aren't the only things worth gossiping about. Too many riders forget that and only ever understand one layer of they weyr."

Which Jae personally thought was rather a waste. When candidates did chores in the Lower Caverns, it shouldn't only be a thing to fill their hands. She wished they'd get to know the people who made their food and sewed their clothes and cleaned up the messes they left behind.

But Kinkajou wasn't causing a mess right now. She was working, hard and cheerfully, and hadn't done anything to deserve a lecture about the unreasonable orders certain bronzeriders gave the tailors or the ridiculously elaborate anniversary cake a certain garnetriding Flightleader had been trying to convince the cooks to bake for his weyrmate. (Jae had managed to negotiate him down to a moderate cake and had then helped him find the right baker. Because she wasn't a total monster.)

"It's nice to meet you Kinkajou. I'm afraid I don't have any stories of other weyrs. I've lived here all my life."

"Ah, that's true! I've heard Harpers have some crazy stories. they would be fun to listen to, even if they aren't necessarily true. Maybe I should pester someone... or some traders, if they have spare time." She turned to Jae again, smiling. "Maybe I can tell some then! I'm from Fort. I- well, I know Fort and High Reaches aren't exactly friends right now... but I do have a friend at Semaca who sends me letters! I'm sure she wouldn't mind if I told some of hers."

What was there... those colorful birds she had been told about, which she had fashioned her robes after, stories about huge wild felines and the massive, unending jungle... Or maybe she could talk about the pirates and the seemingly endless desert!

"She has a lot of good stories. I think mine from Fort are a little boring in comparison."
