I Hate [Torti]

To one side of the cliffs, weyr caves built into the rock gaze out over a warm, sandy desert; on the other, caves can look upon the lush but dangerous treetops of the jungle below. Either way, home is where the heart is.

I Hate [Torti]

Kaladin was feeling more conflicted than ever, somehow. Riders were wrong, the extreme deference that they showed to Nebulaeth just because she was a gold was proof enough of that. But his conversations with Viiox had more than proven that staying away on principle was convincing no one of anything.

But going back would mean facing metallic riders again on a regular basis, and he wasn't sure he could swallow that. Working alongside them felt disloyal somehow, to his family. To himself.

He set the sock he was mending aside, looking up at the rider at the same table. At least she was a greenrider, though he didn't recognize her. "Can you pass me one of the extra glows? It's getting difficult to see some of these stitches."

Anaiya's "sick leave" had done her a lot of good, in her estimation. She'd missed manual labor, the ache of her body after a long day of work instead of the ache of her head after a long day of meetings and politicking.

Even the more delicate work of mending clothing, something she'd once hated, was a welcome change from meetings. She kept herself busy enough with mundane chores to thoroughly avoid most of the metallic riders. Out of sight, out of mind. She was determined to make herself as useful as she could before she had to go home and face her Weyr.

She glanced over at the man - weyrfolk, by his knots - sitting across from her. He didn't seem to recognize her, which was excellent in her estimation.

"Here you go." She did as he asked, handing over one of the glows. "What's your name? I realized we've been here for a while now and I never asked."

Well, she regretted that a bit. The man would definitely recognize her once she said her name, unless he lived under a rock, and not in the sense that Weyrs were built of rock.

Kaladin spent a few moments adjusting the glow so that it illuminated his work. He was, perhaps, stalling. He knew he had something of a reputation, and not a good one; if she knew who he was, the conversation was sure to turn sour.

"My name is Kaladin," he eventually answered, pretending that the sock he turned in his hands was very interesting. He kept his dark eyes on it, little wanting to see the look of recognition followed by annoyance that so many people tended to get around him.

It was a long wait to get the man's name. Perhaps she'd recognize it if she heard it? Maybe he was some lordling come to take refuge from the pressures of politicking. Anaiya knew there were a couple of fancy Blooded people here at Semaca; perhaps this man was one of them.

Kaladin. Anaiya didn't recognize the name, except maybe as one she'd overheard in passing. She did appreciate the fact that it seemed a bit of a fancy name for his station, like hers had been when she was still a drudge.

"I'm Anaiya." She said nothing more, watching him avidly to see how he would react. It was no secret that she was at Semaca, but how Kaladin would react to a one-on-one conversation with her...that made Anaiya nervous. She admitted it grudgingly to herself.

Kaladin could swear the name sounded familiar, but he couldn't quite place it. She was someone important, he was certain, but he stayed so clear of most gossip so much of the time, he could never keep people straight. Especially not riders.

"You arrived... recently, right?" he asked, trying to place where, exactly, he'd actually heard her name and failing miserably.

Anaiya was utterly floored. How...how did Kaladin not know who she was? At all? Other than stating the obvious that she was a newly arrived rider?

When she finally managed to close her jaw, she realized that this might be a refreshing change from the way she was treated most of the time at Semaca.

"Ahem. Yes, fairly recently. And yourself?"
