Chewing Might Help

By all accounts Sutarst was a messy eater. He tended to shovel things into his mouth at a rate that was far to fast and half choke before swallowing. Then he'd do it again, as if his brain had reset, screaming at him to devour until his hunger was sated. A byproduct of his upbringing, what little of it that there was, food was not something to complain about. You had it or you didn't and if he had his way he was never going to feel or taste hunger again.

Shoving the rest of the roll in his mouth he flagged down a drudge for another bowl of stew. Hazel eyes sweeping across the dining hall as he watched the young woman disappear.

He was alone at the table. That was fine by him less likely to get in a fist fight then.

The man ate his food like a rabid wher...No a raging fire...No like thread that had slipped past the wings and burrowed into a verdant field below...Eliza frowned as she struggled to think of the right metaphor. Whatever he ate like, he should strive to do it with a bit more decorum. This was a weyr. Not a pit of wild beasts.

"The weyr has other foods besides stew you know," Eliza said from a nearby table, trying to be helpful. Her accent was polished and aristocratic, unchanged by her turns in the weyr. She still spoke like a Lord Holder's daughter, "Ones that you might be able to eat more neatly."

There was something hardened about this man, with his scars, muscles and often-repaired clothes. An unpolished candidate for a weyr Pern strove to cast out and forget. There was a poetry to it, in a way.

He didn't so much as sneer than bare his teeth at her. Hazel eyes boring into her as he tapped a finger on the worn wood of the table. He had been alone, minding his own business, when she interjected into his own little world. This Highborn little plaything by the sounds of it didn't need to. She had no right. "Maybe I like stew." His voice low and guttural. " Last time I checked I didn't need to lick some highbrows boots. Last time I checked it wasn't any of your business. So go take your silver tongue and choke on it somewhere else because I don't care what you think."

Were Riaath here, she would have already risen to Eliza's defense. Riaath had never been a dragon afraid to use her words as weapons or to back them up with a show of her claws. Riaath fought for her ambition, she fought for her weyr, she fought for herself, and most of all, she fought for Eliza.

But Riaath was a dragon and the Dining Hall was a place for humans.

So instead Eliza spoke calmly, envisioning herself a cool lake in the path of a raging storm, "It's only a suggestion. You'll stain your clothes, if you keep eating like that. There's no need to growl at me."

"What business of it is yours?" He wasn't hurting anybody, he wasn't flipping tables,but he could be, given enough time. " That would just ruin your chances reign it in." So he had made the decision to not flip tables but that didn't mean his tongue was going to be dulled. "Let me make this a little more clearer for you bluebell, I don't give a forsking rat's ass about what you think so kindly leave me in peace and go about your day, shoo."

the next round of stew was placed infront of him and instead of somewhat using silverware like he had been he simply picked but the bowl and drank, chewing when needed.

Eliza sighed. Maybe this candidate was determined to view himself as a beast among men or maybe he wished to protest the arbitrary mores of civilization. But surely there were...neater ways of illustrating the point than drinking his soup straight from the bowl.

Really? That's the bit of all this you fixate on? Riaath snorted from a distance. She would never understand her rider, He's just an asshole, Eliza. Let him be grumpy and miserable alone.

"I am sorry for disturbing your peace," Eliza said instead, surprisingly unbothered by the cursing and obvious dislike. This man was a living juxtaposition to the weyr and the other riders. He was interesting, his rawness highlighting the polish of the people surrounding him, "Perhaps instead of merely offering words, I could assist. I can bring you foods that are easier to eat neatly."

He threw the bowl past her head, No warning, no snide remark, he simply stopped eating,and threw it. It sailed past her, where it skittered and clattered across the floor. Beside the initial aim, he ignored her. His bout of anger over and done with he was once again calm. He's voice was even as he spoke, light, with no malice he was simply stating his piece. " When you live looking over your shoulder, waiting for someone to slit your throat for a misstep you don't care. I don't care. So what food I eat and how I eat it shouldn't be your priority. Find someone else to shove your pablum down their throats. "


There was an lilt in his as he cocked his head in her direction, staring straight ahead. "Hmmm, pablum, that's where it works in a sentence. I just learned that word yesterday, funny isn't it."
