Eggstreme Measures [Whers] [Sari]

Nariyo wasn't usually one to contract with questionable individuals. In this case, however, he had no idea what he was doing. After approaching some, ahem, sailors, or so he thought, he bought a pair of wher eggs. One for him, and another for Makai. Ever since their newfound revelations, they had decided that they would go through their wherlinghood once again; they were aware that they could not have romantic connection during this time, but they thought that caring for whers, while still keeping their close bond of friendship, would be the right thing to do.

He knocked enthusiastically on Makai's door, carefully clutching both of the eggs in his arm. "Makai! Guess what I bought!"

Loverboy here. Bought thing. Kask supplied, helpfully. As Makai went to the door, Kask proceeded to slink after him, quiet but amused. Makai opened the door, arching his eyebrows with surprise.

He hadn't expected Nariyo to get the eggs so soon after their conversation. Nor had he expected Nariyo to buy one for him. "Where did you get those? Shards, let me pay you back." He scrambled to find his marks, leaving the door open for Nariyo to come inside. Kask slipped to the side, letting Nariyo enter, as his eyes whirled in amusement.

Keep eggs in Makai room. Have sleepover until hatch. Narsk come too. Kask suggested, already rolling with the punches.

Nariyo stepped inside, Narsk trailing on not far behind him. He was so excited about these eggs. "Wher eggs! I bought them from one of those sailors who've been showing up! He even said that if I paid double the price, I could have the second egg for free!"

Narsk shook her head. Bought eggs from pirate. Nariyo idiot once again. Not pay him for his idiocy.

Nariyo was too busy getting excited over the eggs to even pay attention to Narsk. "Look! New babies!"

Nariyo's excitement was really cute, but...did he really not realize that double the price was the same as paying for the eggs? "Nariyo..." He shook his head. He'd discuss the pirates after. "Shards, let me pay you back." Makai gestured for Nariyo to place the eggs on his bed, for now. It wasn't like they'd hatch immediately and make a mess of it. He reached for his coinpurse, offering Nariyo what wher eggs usually went for, plus a little extra, just in case. "This is how much a wher egg costs, right?"

Handlers idiots, Kask agreed, cheerfully.

Nariyo was so excited...Makai couldn't help but smile at how he was acting, even as he held out the marks.

"Well actually it was way more than that but don't worry about paying me back." Nariyo shook his head. "It's a gift from me. You don't need to give me your marks, okay?" He gave a soft smile and placed his hand on Makai's shoulder. He was kind of unsure as to why the whers were calling them idiots right now, not that they don't always call them idiots, but he didn't know what he specifically did to warrant being called an idiot right now. Maybe they were jealous that there'd be new additions to the family and they weren't getting all the attention.

Look him. Stupid stupid stupid. Makai pay him out of pity maybe.

Makai's egg started to rock. And then stopped. Then started again. Then stopped again, as if it couldn't quite decide whether it wanted to hatch at all.

In the meantime, Nariyo's egg gave its first twitch. This egg hatched within a few shakes, with no trouble or indecision, a handsome little blue boldly stepping out.


Image

The blue didn't so much as glance at the two humans, or their adult whers, instead focusing on the other egg. It seemed to be having some trouble and he was going to help. It was the right thing to do and if he didn't, who would?

The blue looked at the egg, as if trying to speak to the baby inside. The egg shook again and shell gave its first crack. Was it finally going to hatch?

No...no it was not. The egg stopped again. Was this one okay?

And that was when the blue decided to take things into its own claws. It walked right over to the egg and did its best to pry the small crack open. Maybe the blue succeeded or maybe the other hatchling was just scared enough by the sudden intrusion to hatch on its own at last, but one way or another, a little brown soon came tumbling into the scene, already looking anxious.

Nariyo stared intently at the wobbling eggs, and when a sparkly blue popped out of the first egg, his grin went wide, nudging Makai slightly. "Look! Look at him! A blue!" He was excited to see the wherlet; it was already apparent that he was confident and ready to take on the world. His first course of action, however, before he even spared a glance to the humans, was to go over to his unhatched sibling. Wake up time! Time for wake up! he said, as Narsk tilted her head in concern at him. Let egg hatch on own. Will wake up soon. The blue ignored Narsk, and when the shy little brown emerged from the other egg, he finally gave the humans a glance.

Ah! You! The blue wher waddled over to Nariyo, giving a gentle gnaw on his leg. Am Narisk. Am ready to save world! Nariyo was slightly taken aback, but then he remembered Narsk's Impression; she chomped on him way harder than this. "Oh hey!" he said to the blue. "Think my leg is food, huh?"

Nariyo. Narsk shook her head. Blood.
"Oh, right. Makai, you got something sharp lying around anywhere?"

Makai narrowed his eyes at Nariyo. How much did Nariyo pay? He was clearly ripped off and tricked, at least in terms of the whole "pay double" part, but...hopefully he didn't spend too much. Still, he didn't have much time to think about it, as the eggs began to rock. Already? They'd been lucky they hadn't hatched before the eggs had arrived...

Makai pay because ALSO idiot. Kask snorted, but peered at the wher eggs as they began to hatch.

Nariyo's egg hatched first, a blue--but Makai's egg seemed to wait. The blue looked over at the remaining egg, using his claws to help break the little brown free. The brown's eyes whirled with worry and anxiety, yellow, but he looked over to Makai anyways. A handler...would that be safer? He guessed he didn't have a choice, which was a bit of a relief, but he waffled at how he should approach his new handler. The brown stared at Makai, and Makai stared back, until he was jolted back to Pern by Nariyo's words. "Right! Forsk, uh..." He fumbled for his belt knife, and cut the palm of his hand, placing it in front of Makaisk, who paused, before approaching. Impression!

He gave a grin. Makaisk was...indecisive, it seemed, but a good wher. Maybe not a warrior, but still an ally, or so he hoped. Idly, he wiped the knife clean, and handed it to Nariyo. "Makaisk, huh? You like my name that much?"

Decision hard. Makaisk safer name... The wher paused, realizing that by refusing to decide, he'd made a decision. Is okay? Is good? Should not have done that, maybe. Should have picked better name. Is right name? What right name? Um. Is too late. Makaisk is name... The wher rambled, seeming to question his decision. Makai, for his part, grimaced. Such an indecisive, anxious, and confused wher...but Makaisk was his, and he would absolutely protect the brown. Precious, even if a bit of a worried nerd...

"Oh, Nariyo. Meet Makaisk!" Turning to Nariyo, he remembered that an introduction might be necessary.

Nariyo took the knife from Makai, slicing his palm and holding it out in front of Narisk. The wher rubbed his head against his hand, grinning; the wound stung slightly, but that didn't seem to bother him. Yes, hello friend. Am now yours. Nariyo now mine.
"Hey Narsk, look, you have competition now. This is Narisk!" Narsk nods. Hello Narisk. Am Narsk. Narsk and Kask superior whers.
"Oh, come on, the guy just hatched!" says Nariyo, to Narsk.

As Makai calls for his attention, Nariyo turns around. "Aw, Makaisk seems sweet. Don't worry, little fella, you're in good hands." He motions towards Narisk. "This is Narisk. He seems ambitious!" He considered going over to Makaisk to talk to him, but he seemed a bit shy. Narsk, however, has no hesitation approaching the little brown. Am Narsk. Am first wher of Nariyo. Must warn Makaisk. Makai very stupid. Nariyo very stupid too. Kask only smart man. Not know if Narisk stupid yet. Are stupid, Narisk? She quickly jolted her head around to the other wherlet. No! Narisk not stupid. Narisk smart. Narisk has lot to learn!

Nariyo beamed. "Can you believe these adorable little forskers came from crime sailors?!"

Makaisk watched as Narsk approached him, and almost grimaced. Hi, Narsk...hi, Kask. He didn't think Makai was stupid, but...was Makaisk stupid, like Narsk said? He was a smart guy, too, like Narisk! He...he thought so, anyways. Maybe he wasn't? He did have a lot to learn--just like Narisk. He gave a shy little nod to Narisk, hoping the blue would become a friend, maybe. Makaisk want learn, too...Is good thing to want. His words were careful and cautious. While he agreed with Narisk and wanted to learn things alongside the blue, he was a little nervous around the abrasive Narsk.

Kask approached Narsk, looking at the baby whers with a snort. Little new whers listen to Narsk and Kask. Narsk and Kask smart, know best. In charge. Makaisk and Narisk do what say. Mischief was written on Kask's face, as he glanced to Narsk. Makaisk glanced from each wher to the next, confused. Should...should he agree? Or would that be bad, resulting in continual harassment? Oh...so fresh from the egg, and so many decisions.

"Shards, Kask, be nice. Makaisk is...sensitive." Makai glared at Kask, while Makaisk tried to determine if it was good to be sensitive or not. To Nariyo, however, he grinned. "Makaisk isn't...what I thought I wanted, but--"

Makaisk not good? Try be good wher, promise! Makaisk interjected, eyes whirling with worry.

"But," Makai continued, "He is the most pure forsking thing I have ever met and I will defend him. Also, Kask, he's my sharding favorite. Forsk you."

Forsk Makai! Kask best.

Agree with Kask. Kask best. Tied with Narsk for best. The wher nodded, turning her attention to the two wherlets, giving a brief smirk to Kask. What was she up to? First thing little baby whers must learn is paramount importance to call Nariyo and Makai dimglow whenever possible. Silly loverboys both very stupid. Nariyo's face sank. Please don't corrupt the babies, Narsk, he thought. Please don't make another wher constantly call him dumb. "Oh c'mon, Narsk. How about teaching them to breathe or whatever it is whers teach each other first?"

Narisk interjected. Narisk not think Nariyo dumb. Narisk strong warrior and Nariyo partner. Makaisk very sweet but shy.
Hm. Narisk still do not know Nariyo well. said Narsk, shaking her head.

Nariyo finally looked at Makai with a soft smile. "Heh, looks like we both got what the other one of us wanted. I still love him, though. I'm so glad we could do this together."
