Niah's Secret

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.

It's the evening, niah has been working extra hard recently. Getting home at odd times and being very moody. Her clothes went from well fitting to being baggy, though always showing a bit of cleavage to distract l'ton. Zaenar has been quiet, for a while she was happy and smiley but the teen is now to being quiet and almost broody. Something in the water. Tonight is no different, Niah is home in the shower. But this night is different, Zae's had enough of the moody foster mother and is sitting near the door. Both boys are quietly asleep, the big 1 turn olds now. Ellyza is in her arms, restlessly fighting sleep.

L'ton has been distracted lately, with everything going on with Eiriana and S'ya, and even with Mai, and so he's not been too concerned by the change in Niah's routine. Tonight he's doing what he tends to, and he's coming by to check on Niah, smiling at Zae as he lands. After a moment, he notices her brooding, and he's giving her a nod of his head, as if a silent invitation to take Dhonzayth for a lift somewhere else. For his own part, L'ton is ducking towards the shower, closing the door for Zae's sake before he's stripping, and sliding into the shower with Niah without asking for permission, or a moments hesitation.

Niah hasn't let L'ton see her naked in four sevendays, and so as he slides in she squeaks and jumps out of the shower. Not her normal reaction. Quickly grabbing a towel up she throws it around her body and screams, "Tonny!!!" Trembling from head to toe she says.. "Tonnny.. think.. maybe we need to talk." With that reaction, you bet they need to talk. Sitting down, on a chair near the door, she takes a deep breath and puts on a smile. "Missed you tonny." Standing and moving to kiss him. Zaenar goes out to dhonzayth and says, "Hello? Umm.. could yu ask yer rider to really /look/ at Miss niah please? She's hidin' somethin'. Ah promised her I'd not tell, but.. he could figure it out." With that she gives him a pat and mounts the dragon. Needing a bit more of a pull, and scrambling as Dhonzayth is no Celiketh.

L'ton is staring at Niah in shock as she's ducking out of the shower, and he's sulking, watching her grab the towel, just blinking at her. As she slowly returns to him to give him a kiss, he's grinning, tugging the towel away from her body, and pulling her against him as he backs into the shower once more, giving her another few kisses, wrapping his arms around her waist. Her mention of needing to talk is apparently unheard, as he's too busy with her naked body. However, its not long before he's looking down at her in surprise, turning her this way and that, before he's turning her around, pulling her back against him, and resting his hands on her stomach. "Niah.." He says slowly, questioningly.

Niah is trembling from head to toe, as he takes the towel away she starts to scream again. Once he has a hand on her stomach it is futile, so she relaxes against him and says.. "Tonny." The word is almost a plea, she bites her lip and looks down at her stomach and the very visible rounding. In normal clothing she would be visibly pregnant. Finally she starts to cry, "Tonny.. say something.. be mad at me. It's ok." Her entire frame shaking she grips onto him, "I am sorry.." Panting a bit with fear she says.. "I.. think we should talk on the bed."

L'ton is just standing there, rather in shock, leaning back against the wall, one hand moving from her stomach to turn the water off, before he's just blinking shaking his head as he keeps her back pressed up against his stomach. "How did ya.." And then he shakes his head, turning her around to pull her into a long hug. "Niah… Why.. Why didn't ya tell me? Ah… Its… Its K'ael's, ain't it? That's.. That's why ya didn't tell me?" He ventures, lip beginning to quiver.

Niah shakes like a small canine, her voice trembling and she says. "Lightheaded.. just bed." She mumbles, sobbing slightly and biting her lip tell blood runs down her chin. At the mention of k'ael she looks shocked, almost like she might slap him. Pulling back she says "What.. that's what you think of me?" Pulling away and sounding hurt, placing a very possesive hand on her stomach she says "Not K'aels! Yours!" Leaning against the opposite wall from him, sliding down tell she is sitting and sobbing.

"Come on, love.." L'ton says slowly, after staring at her with wide eyes, unable to process her admittance. But, finally he's recovering, and he's moving to pull her up into his arms, holding her against him as he carries her out to the bed, gently laying her down as he stretches out next to her. Slowly resting his hand on her gently curving abdomen, he pillows his head on her chest, just staring, awed into silence.

Niah looks down at her abdomen and relaxes against him, she cries for ten good minutes. Sobbing and saying she is sorry the entire time, before she says "I wanted to make the baby safe." It's hard to understand her, because she is still frantic. "I didn't want y-yyou to have to hide it from anyone.. or-rr lie for me. I just, thought that this would be b-best." Breathing heavily she says, "You can be m-mad, I'm s-sorry." looking at him sincerely she says "If you never want to see me or the baby, I understand."

"Niah, Niah, Niah.." L'ton murmurs, shaking his head and sighing, holding her close and turning to kiss anywhere he can reach, holding onto her. "Ya are gonna be safe… The baby is gonna be safe.. We ain't gonna have ta lie, ain't gonna have ta worry.." He shakes his head, continuing to plant kisses. "Shells, Niah, it could have been from after one of them flights, we both lost. Ain't like.. we had ta have been trying or nothing."

"Tonny." Niah says his name, her eyes pleading for him to understand her side. At his kisses she begins to relax, though she is still incredibly tense. "I-I've beeen really bad L'ton, I got in a fight with Zip and she is mad at me.. I, I've made Zae miserable." Looking at the curve of her body she starts to cry again. "Mai.. mai's gonna hate me, everyones going hate me. Can't even see a healer, no one can know..you can't tell anyone." Celiketh rumbles from outside, moving in and looking at Niah and L'ton. Then leaving.

L'ton glances sidelong at Celiketh as he rumbles, before looking back at Niah, and proceeding to give her a few more reassuring kisses, though these are mostly aimed at her mouth, as she throws a leg over hers, keeping her from moving away, and holding her against him, hand gently rubbing her stomach. "What did ya get in a fight with Zip, 'bout?" He asks with a tilt of his head, blinking at her, though he can't seem to just stare - he has to kiss her now and then.

Niah wiggles at being pinned to the bed, with the kissing it's hard to talk and she gets very quiet. Closing her eyes she wipes the blood off her lip and staring at it for a moment. "Tonny, you're not listening.. I have to hide it, you can't tell anyone.. at all." As he touches her abdomen she puts both her hands on it, "Zip.. zip knows, and she wanted me to tell you. She's known for.. 15 sevendays.. or well, when.. when I thought I might be. I let it slip, and.. and I was so rude and now she hates me."

"Ya dun have ta hide it. If'n ya hide it, people'll think it was some sort of trick. If'n.. If'n its been that long, it's probably from that darned green, that we both missed.. ain't like we did anything wrong then." He shrugs a bit, keeping her pinned, and continuing to slowly rub her stomach, as he kisses her again, distracted by finally having her quite naked again, after those long weeks. "Ah'll talk ta Zip.. Maybe if'n ya just tell her yer sorry.." He shakes his head.

Niah sighs, "Ok.. but.. but." Looking down at his hand, "You aren't mad right?" Asking, eyes big and kissing him. "You..you're happy? Right, I.. I am seventeen sevendays.." She says looking ashamed of herself, "At least I think." Counting in her head and saying, "..The healer said I was 4 when I found out.." More mental math and she nods. "Yes.. Seventeeen." At the mention of an apology she wrinkles her nose up "I will, but, Zipalla wasn't nice either! I mean.. she threatened to tell you if I didn't and.. and.." Kissing him again she leans up.. "So.. you really are happy right?"

"Niah, would Ah be doing this, if'n Ah wasn't happy?" Well, possibly considering its L'ton, but the look on his face shows that he is happy. Its a silly grin on his face as he kisses her, hand shifting to cop a feel, before he's chuckling. "Shards, Niah, yer through the worst part of it.." He shakes his head with a chuckle, giving her a squeeze and a kiss. "We'll work it out." He promises her.

Niah looks up at him, still not sure what she's supposed to say. "I.. I have to get all big again, that's the worst part of it." Looking over at the sleepings boys she says, "..They're going to have a little sister.." Seeming convinced it's a girl. With his copping a feel she says, "Tonny, I.. I think we might need to tell pi. See, I've been working just as hard as if I wasn't pregnant and now I am and well." Taking a deep breath, "I can't work this hard." The bluerider does have dark circles under her eyes, and despite the baby bumps she's scrawny.

"Ah'll talk ta her, dun worry. Don't ya worry, ya just relax.." And he chuckles, shaking his head. "Yeah, dun ya worry, Ah'll take care of all of it. And. Ah can't wait til ya are all big.. then there's more of ya ta enjoy.." He smirks a bit, stealing another feel, starting to roll towards her. "Ya shouldn't worry, not right now. Ya should just relax, and let yerself have some fun.. Ah mean, ain't like ya can get pregnant." He teases her, nipping at her ear, and giving her a squeeze. "It's been so long.." Cue Tonny pout.

Niah rolls her eyes a bit at his mention of more of her to enjoy, "Alright, if.. that's what you think is best." Kissing her fingers she puts them on her belly, "I can't believe we're doing this again, the boys just turned one." Taking a deep breath she gives a little nod, running her hands over his body and saying "I.. I only stopped because, well.. you can tell." Pointing and sounding apologetic, "We can have a little fun, can you stay with me for a while?"

"Ah do, love, Ah do." And then he's grinning, shaking his head. "Ya're only crazy if'n ya do it another half dozen times after that." He says with a chuckle, burying his face in her neck, nodding his head in agreement to her question. Murmuring softly in her ear, he grins. "Ah was thinking a lot of fun.. we got a lot ta make up for… And, Ah gotta stay, ta do that.." He grins, nuzzling her ear, before he's reaching to pull the covers over them both.
