picking or picky?

Peony couldn't say who had woven the basket. Probably one of the many who had inhabited the Weyrs lower caverns. The sea of faces who served without glory. Often without thanks. Or hope.

It sat firmly against her back. Turns having done nothing to soften the structure, just the fabric. The straps supple over her shoulders as she crouched to pull wild herbs or tubers from the ground. To check beneath bushes for eggs or other things. Today was a good day for work outside. Brisk but not freezing.

A good day for solitude. Interrupted.

"Hello." Her voice was almost inflection less. Was she perturbed? Or perhaps thankful for a distraction from her darker thoughts. Of being left standing again. Hands fists against her thighs while the last dragon left the sands and she was left behind. Hand shading her eyes from the glare of Rubak, she straightened and eyed her new companion.

Qibli was curious. Vichearth was dozing in a sunny patch close by, so he approached the other alone. What was she gathering for, or who? Perhaps it was one of her chores that day? He couldn't say for sure, and she ended up surprising him out of his thoughts when she spoke to him.

"Ah... I'm not interrupting am I?" She didn't sound too pleased to be bothered. Maybe he had seemed creepy, standing there lost in his own thoughts? Maybe she just didn't want company? Either way, he felt a little bad.

Peony looked around them, and then down at the stem curling between her fingers. Little balls of petal wrapped seeds dangled from the end in neat rows. "No." She answered, meeting his eyes again. She thought he looked familiar.

Judging by the size of his green, they'd probably been candidates together. All their faces melded together after a while. It was a passing sort of intimacy, shared candidacy. "Good weather we're having." She tacked on into the awkward silence, tossing her bounty over her shoulder and into the basket that hung down her back.

He smiled, stretching his arms over his head and looking up to the sky. It was nice weather. Warm without being blisteringly hot, with a few clouds in the sky to offset the worst of it.

"It really is. Winter is sneaking up on us. The good weather won't last much longer. We'll have to enjoy it while it's still nice like this." Plus, High Reaches got way too cold to enjoy the winter weather. All he wanted to do during the winter was sleep under a nice warm blanket.

He seemed so careless. No, that was not the right word. Carefree. Peony fingered the skin of her elbow, watching him stretch toward the sun like a flower. What was it like? Carefree? She wondered while watching him.

"I don't know if it's very sneaky. It's always coming." The cold shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. At least not anyone who'd spent more than a Turn at High Reaches. Thumb sliding under the strap of her basket, she dug for words. This was always the difficult part. Being caught unawares. "Will you fly away for the winter?" She questioned.

"...like a bird?" He grinned, chuckling softly and humming thoughtfully. "Hm.... We might not be graduated by then, honestly. But... Even then, I have a lot of friends here. Its a little chilly for me here, especially in the winter, but there's no one at Fort or Semaca that I know well. Not like here." It was... safe, familiar. He could put up with a chill for his friends.
