Niah and M'iken, Oh My!

Ista Weyr - Celiketh's Sinking Ship(#10142RJ)
The ledge has a few chunks taken out of it, and you can see where dragon talons have reshaped the rock over the turns. Near the door to the weyr are a few potted plants, and two large rocks presumably to hold the doors of the weyr open on a nice day.
Inside the weyr the walls are a lilac blue, soft and mild coloring. The entrance has a rug of dark midnight blue in front a navy blue sofa which is adorned by a baby blue blanket and pillows. The place only has two windows, and both have been adorned with curtains of a blue that matches the walls. In contrast is a round table near the small kitchen area, the table is a dark maroon and four chairs that match. Sitting on the table is a vase holding a flower of white and blue, if examined closer it would be discovered the flower is fake. Further into the space behind a heavy curtain of deep crimson is a king sized bed adorned by a bright red quilt and pillows that vary from a near pink red to deep maroon. All the furniture is red, shelves along one wall hold a collections of shells, pictures and other household items. Space has been left near the bed so that Celiketh may be near Niah at night. Off to the side is a well swept dragon couch, fabric hanging near it is bright and very cheery blues, near the couch is a small collection of objects varying from yellowed leaves, shells and pieces of glass that are blue and red.
There is a door, just like the weyr doors except instead of double doors this is only one door, it looks to be new and freshly painted a blue to make it blend in with the walls. Behind the door one would fine a room that is a light color of green, a springy happy green like new growth on a farm. Painted on the walls are flowers, and little cubbies. This is more than just a room, it appears to be more like a weyr that had at, one point, been sealed up, for whatever reason. Now it only has one door. A four poster type bed sits on one wall, covered in a pink quilt. In the corner of what appears to be a younger girls room is oddly a crib. If one were to not know Zaenar it would seem very out of place. A small sink and everything, though the water system appears to have rusted. Beyond anything it makes a nice space for Zaenar and Ellyza.

The day is winding down, it's late afternoon early evening and the weather is partly cloudy with a cool breeze blowing south/southwest. The temperature is a cool 55 degrees and cooling rapidly. Indeed, the day is winding down and all is nice and calm. Outside niah weyr, inside Niahs a bit busy. Cooking dinner and carrying a very cranky Zialon around, Zaenar is busy sweeping while Ellyza is holding onto fruniture and attempting to stand, she does manage it but swiftly falls on her butt. She takes it well, no crying she just looks frusturated. Otherwise she is crawling around, they've left the door open to let hte cool air in. Ledge safety might be needed very soon.

And ledge safety there will be! For L'ton is arriving, Dhonzayth taking back off once his rider is on the ledge. Stepping through the door, he almost immediately finds an Ellyza, and he's scooping to pick her up, settling the active baby in his arms, shaking his head. "Ya'll almost lost something, girls.." He murmurs, as she's settled on his hip and he's moving to stay out of Zae's way, to greet Niah with a kiss.

Now all they need to do is L'ton proof the place, but alas that is not to be. As he comes in Niah leans up, moving to put a hand behind his head and prolong the kiss. "Hello." She whispers to him, before his words about Ellyza sink in "Oh.. oh my, Zae we may need to block that door, I mean she has gotten so active. Right elly.. uh huh." The last bit is said in a voice that would embarras any grown person, and it's clear she's talking to the baby. Zaenars eyes get big and she comes to get the baby, "Yes Miss Niah, Uncle Ton sir, I can take her.. it's ok" Reaching out to take her baby. Zialon still seems pretty upset and is making a bunch of noise. "Shh.. Shh.. little boy." Niah tries to calm him down, she's not having any luck.

L'ton is more than willing to extend the kiss, before he's pulling away reluctantly and grinning. "Ya seem like yer in a good mood.." He teases her gently, before he's handing Elly off to Zae with a shake of his head. "They tend ta do that. A gate or something is usually 'nuff to keep them in, and not other people out. Making a face as Zialon continues to fuss, he shakes his head. "What's wrong with my lil boy?"

Niah shrugs her shoulder and stirs a soup she's making, it smells really good. Zaenar takes Ellyza and gives her a kiss whispering something or another into her ear, and then kissing the ear. The teen goes into her room giving a little smile before she disappears into her own space, subtly giving L'ton and Niah some adult time. Zialon does not stop crying long enough to recognize his father, instead he just keeps crying his face bright red, "I really do not know, he's just been really upset recently." Shaking her head and bouncing him a bit, offering the baby to L'ton she says "I tried feeding him, he fusses to much to eat."

L'ton spares a sniff for the soup, before he's hmming softly, watching Zialon more. After a moment, he's carefully sticking his pinkie into the babe's mouth, trying to run his finger over the boy's gums, as if he's trying to see if there are any teeth. "Ah ain't sure.. Maybe he's just fussing…"

In his mouth L'ton might feel just the very, very early starting of teeth. "Shh, baby." Groaning she says, "Tonny, will you please take him? I need to sit down something awful." Kissing his forehead and shhing him further. "I mean, he is just a little young for teething don't you think?" Zialon chews on L'tons finger and calms down just a little, the kid just needs a chew toy.

"Ah dunno.. some of 'em go early.." L'ton murmurs as he's settling the boy on his hip with one arm, the other staying in the infant's mouth as he's being gummed. With a sigh, he's shaking his head, and moving to follow along after Niah, when she moves to sit down. "What's wrong, love?"

Niah nods and lays her head down on the arm of the sofa, "Been tired a lot love, that's all." Yawning and curling her knees up to her chest, into the classic Niah comfort position. "I though that after four months they would settle a little, they have, but they've settled into different patterns. I'm up for half an hour every two hours throughout the night. I am not sure how much longer I can stand it, I love them soo much."

"Sweets… Like, tired tired, or sick tired, or like… tired you were with the boys?" L'ton ventures, actually rather nervous as he questions her, moving to settle down on the other end of the sofa to give her space, while the boy is still chewing his finger, as much as he can, at least. "Ah know, love, it ain't easy. Tis the problem with twins."

Niah yawns, a tiny yawn followed by a small squeak and it just makes her look really cute. "Tired like the boys, sort of but it isn't that bad. Just kind of annoying, like I can't finish the day without napping." Shrugging her shoulders and looking back over at the boy in his arms, "He has not helped much." Blowing a kiss to Zialon and looking up at L'ton from her comfy spot, "What' on your mind Tonny?"

"Nothing, sweets. Just.. want ta make sure yer taking care of yerself." L'ton murmurs softly, rocking the boy gently. "Maybe ya should consider leaving them with the nannies one night a week, so that ya can at least try and catch up on yer sleep, ya know?"

"What makes you think I am not? Just tired, been not feeling so good but it could all be lack of sleep." Niah is a bit defensive, scooting forward she reaches out for her son, who has finally calmed down gnawing on L'tons finger. "I'd let him do that but he doesn't want my finger." She says, a bright pink blush flushing her face and she adjusts her small yellow sundress so that it covers her knees.

"Ah just mean.." And then he's sighing softly at her defensiveness, shaking his head and just passing her the boy, wiping his finger off on his pants. Ew, baby slobber. "Well, dun let him chew on anything else good, ya know?" He teases her, patting her leg idly.

Niah takes him, and he quickly starts to fuss. Not being as loud. The precious kitten however is not amused, she is stalking her pray. Poor little Zion, innocently sleeping on the bed, quietly stalking the baby. In contrast the Sassy red katten is coming to rub against L'tons legs and purring happily. "How's M'iken?" She asks, bouncing the baby and kissing him gently.

L'ton reaches down to carefully pet Sassy, moving to pick the kitten up into his lap, grinning as he plays wit her, before looking back at Niah. "She's well 'nuff. Ah mean, she's real pregnant, is the main thing." And pregnant is certainly a state of being.

Precious has done it, and Zion is awake and crying. Niahs up in less than half a second, she hands Zialon to L'ton and grabs up Zion. Precious has fled the scene. "Oh.. baby." She croons at him, Zaenar coming back out and taking Zialon from L'ton. Niah twirls a bit and says, "Tonny, could.. coudl we maybe go out tonight?"

L'ton suddenly has a baby back in his hands, and the kitten is skittering back off, and Niah's returning with the other boy in her hands. "Out?" He questions, with a tilt of his head. "Like.. Whatcha mean, out?"

Niah smiles a bit, Zion having calmed quickly and now just staring up at his mother. "Well, I mean that because.. we're sort of a couple right tonny?" He can only answer the way any smart man would. "So, because of that we should be able to.. date? Maybe just go down and eat together with no one else around." Offering and looking really cute, "I'll wear something nice, and Zaenar can watch the kids."

"Well, Ah dunno 'bout tonight. Ah mean.." And L'ton is trying to make up some excuse or another where he's sitting on the opposite end of the couch, Zialon in his arms. "Ah mean, Mai.. Mai was thinking 'bout maybe coming ta see ya ta, and it ain't fair ta dump 'em all on Zae just like that and.."

Niah looks saddened, looking down at the ground and sitting back on the couch. "I could take them to the nannies.. I just wanted to get out." Crossing her legs she strokes Zion gently, sucking on her bottom lip giving him really big eyes. At the mention of a visit from her favorite brownrider she perks up a little, "That would be nice." Remembering her soup she gets up, stirring with one hand and bouncing Zion with the other. "It's ok, if you do not want to go out with me." she says in the most pitiful tone.

L'ton certainly feels a bit bad, as Niah gets all sad, but then she's going to stir the soup, leaving him on the couch, shaking his head. "Tisn't what Ah'm saying, Niah.. Ah just.. Dunno if tonight would be the best night, ya know? Ah mean.. Ah can't just.. scoot out on Mai, either. Ah like ta tell her if'n Ah'm not going ta be around, if'n Ah can help it."

Niah stirs it some more and sits down at the table, rubbing her cheek on the boys forehead. "Shh, Zion.. is ok." She talks to him, eyes almost getting puffy with sadness, a little tear. "I would never ask you to do anything that would upset M'iken, you know I wouldn't. I was just hoping to get a break, you know I don't want to make you unhappy." Looking up at him and standing, moving to sit really close to him, looking up like a child begging for money or a present.

Just then a big brown dragon is landing out on the blue rider's ledge, a bit of a humoruos rumble comming from him as he lands as lightly as possible for the sake of his lifemate and hunkers down so she doesn't have quite as far to slide. M'iken does come slideing down, looking more windblown than usual with her hair loose from it's ponytail. Meluth gets a pat and a smile before Mai is off to move further inside. "Hello?" The brownrider calls, giving Celiketh a smile as she waddles on past him.

"Ah mean, ya can still have a break but.." And L'ton sighs, clearly its a losing battle. Clearly that's why no sane man has two women. As Niah settles next to him, and then practically /on/ him, he gives her shoulders a squeeze, before there's noise on the ledge and he's absently squeezing her shoulder again, trying to sneak out from beneath her to greet M'iken, even with Zialon still in his arms.

Niah knows he likes her on him, but as Mai comes in she practically jumps. This sudden movement upsets the baby in her arms, and she's blushing brightly and covering her face with her one free hand. "Oh.. Hi Mai!" She says, a small trace of a smile on her face, that quickly vanishes and she sucks her bottom lip fidgeting and saying, "I-I am sorry, I kept him to long.. I am so so sorry." It's apparent she is really nervous, shaking somewhat like a small puppy. Celiketh bugels to Meluth, and croons to the waddling M'iken.

M'iken grins a little at the scens and puts her hands at her back, to kind of brace the weight in the front. "Hi. It's ok. I was planning on getting over here to visit you anyway." She moves over to give L'ton a kiss while Meluth greets Celiketh. "Having fun?" She asks him. She doesn't say anything about the seemingly puffy eyes of the bluerider as she generally looks distraught in some way when ever Mai sees her.

"Course… Zialon here is starting ta teeth, Ah think.." And the boy is still fussing as he gives Mai a kiss in greeting, before his fingers end up back in the infant's mouth to soothe him. And then he's turning back to loko at where Niah ran off too, sighing softly, before smiling. "Ain't yer fault. Told ya she might be coming, pet."

Niah perks a bit and says, "You look good M'iken." Forcing another smile and nodding to L'ton, she watches him with the baby but is distracted by Zion. "How have you been?" She asks, standing and taking careful steps forward, then relaxing and moving to stand next to L'ton and look at Zialon. At her question she tilts her head, "Well, i was trying to convince tonny that we should go down and eat dinner.. you should come to." Ahh, she might be shy but she is female. Pulling other females in on the plot may help.

M'iken pats her hair down a bit and grimaces a bit. "Thanks, now I know why I keep my hair up though." At the news Zialon is teething she makes a pouty face at the baby. "Aww, poor baby, I'm sure you're all uncomfrtable and just not happy at all are you." She sits herself down on next to L'ton to mess with Zialon's feet a little, even though he's not to happy about it. "I'm ok today." Is her response to how she's been, no need to go about talking about being sick, it's just no fun. "Ah going down to eat…" She's not so sure about that, it's actually been a few months since she's done that and she turning into something of a recluse because of it. "I suposse we could." She says a bit unsure. "Are we taking the babies with us?"

L'ton unfortunately only has two arms. And, at the moment, both of them are taken up by holding and distracting Zialon. As Mai plays with the baby's feet, he actually gurgle a bit around L'ton's finger, distracted at least for the moment. Glancing from one to the other, a bit like a trapped animal, he's nodding. "We.. We should. All three of us."

Niah gets the biggest smile watching Mai with Zialon, shhing him and putting Zion back down in his bed. She is very attentive and careful, laying the baby down and kissing his feet gently. The ritual of putting down the child is somewhat long, the new mother still lingering over her child and then going back to L'ton and M'iken, saying in a very unusual perky voice "See, we all can go." At the mention of bringing the children she looks unsure, "Zaenar is here, and they should sleep. I mean, if you would like to we could." Offering and looking over at Zialon, "I try and keep them away from people, so they do not get sick." she explains, stroking Zialons hair and sitting on L'tons other side. At Mai's unsureness she stutters a little, "I'm sorry, I was terribly forward about it."

M'iken was never really one to eat in the living caverns except when she was a candidate and weryling since that was the only place /to/ eat. But since living with just Meluth and then L'ton and Dhon, she's gotten used to spending time at home. So she shakes her head a bit at Niah. "No, no. It's ok. It's just been a while since I went down there for dinner. I suposse it'll be a nice change?" She looks to L'ton to see if she can tell what he really wants to do. If he's just trying to be nice, she'll totally back him up on turning down the offer. "I can understand why you wouldn't want them to get sick so early on." She says about the babies, she wouldn't really want them to fall under the weather either, especially if they're already uncomfortable from teething.

L'ton quickly moves to offer the baby to Niah, with a smile. "How about the Sands, instead? They have a pretty good dinner menu.. And we can sorta sit 'out the way, so it ain't ta much stress on either of you." He tries to compromise, looking from one to the other. Now, however, that his hands are free, he's moving to put an arm over each's shoulder a bit possessively.

Niah grins, totally thrilled, "That sounds so nice." The bluerider looks down at her yellow sundress, which is plenty suitable for eating in the sands unless you happen to be Niah. Looking at M'iken and then L'ton she gets another sort smile on her face, taking her baby and rocking him gently "Well, I am going to get changed " With an innocent sweet smile she throws in, "I have something I think would look really cute on you M'iken, something special just for this occasion." Standing she twirls a little, this is a very happy bluerider indeed "I have something perfect, from before the boys where born. You will look so amazing." leaning forward she kisses L'ton on the cheek. Moving into the room that is just off her own, you can hear slight talking between her and Zaenar. Coming back she says "Ok, come on." She says, her voice nearing sing song.

M'iken blinks a bit. "You want me to change?" She a little bewildered. The fact that she's in a dress with her hair down is probably the most dressed up she's been in her life really. "We're just going to diner at the Sands." What occasion? If she weren't pregnant, she'd probably wear a tank top and some shorts. Mai truely is the epitome of casual dress. That and she doesn't like to be too girly and get all dressed up and stuff.

"Oh, let Mai be, Niah…" L'ton fusses a bit at the bluerider, keeping his arm around the brownrider with a smile. And then he's shaking his head, with a sigh, leaning to give Mai a kiss. "Ya both look fine, Niah.." He sighs softly, even as Niah is darting off to talk to Zaenar.

Niah shrugs at Mai, nodding and going off to dress. It only takes her a few minutes, before she comes back wearing a nice white dress. It's loose and flows down her body making her skin look fair, the fabric bunches near the stomach. Her hair is out of a braid and down her back in light brown crimped curls, caused by prolonged time in the braid. Around her neck is a silver necklace, three stones of blue with the middle being a dark blue matching Celikeths hide. "Ok, I was just.. trying to dress her up tonny. I mean I did not wanna make you uncomfortable or anything Mai." She says, and then says, "W-we ready?"

M'iken waits with L'ton when Niah goes to change. "Some girls are just like that I guess." She murmurs to the bronzer, and she wonders sometimes if L'ton wishes she was a little more girlish. When the bluerider comes back, she smiles. "You look cute. And don't worry too much about it." She pats Ton on the leg and grins over at him. "If you'll help me up, we can go."

"Yer beautiful just as ya are, love.." L'ton murmurs to M'iken softly, before Niah's reappearing, and he's moving to help M'iken up, and then to offer Niah his other arm. "Ah'm still gonna be the envy of the place, with the two prettiest ladies there are both with me.." He grins, moving to escort them to the ledge and their date, as it were.
