Niah's Flight Experience

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 dinner time, and Niah is nowhere to be found. Zaenar had sent a firelizard to get L'ton, and is waiting for him to take her up to the ledge. Both boys aren't around either, odd.

L'ton has been firelizard'd, and he's meeting Zaenar to gather up the young teen, before himself and Dhonzayth are taking the girl home. However, it is a curious L'ton that is escorting Zaenar inside, a bit confused as they go. "Niah?" He calls, before turning to stand on the ledge, to see if he can spot the purpley blue anywhere nearby.

Nowhere to be found… Definetly odd, Niah is big on notes. Anyone who has ever been there, finds her little notes pinned to everything. No note. No celiketh. Zaenar says, "Miss niah never takes the boys to work with her.. where would she have taken them? They never even went to the nannies today." Putting Ellyza down in the play pen, the little girl pulling herself up and looking around.

"Maybe…" L'ton seems as if he's going to suggest something, but it seems that nothing has come to mind /to/ suggest, and thus he's just standing, quite dumbfounded, before shaking his head and shrugging. "Shards, Zae, where is she?" He questions as he comes back inside, meandering around the Weyr to look for a note that got blown from somewhere logical.

No note. There is a note that says they need more scraps for the cats, and another note reminding Zaenar to do her homework. But nothing saying she would be gone for a prolonged period of time. Finally, after ten more minutes Celiketh comes out of between, landing quickly. Both boys are in the little between outfits, and Niah is looking ragged. She isn't wearing her jacket, just a torn taint top and a pair of pants that have the button ripped of. The boys are in slings held tightly to her body. Small bruises on her arms, one on her face and what looks like bite marks down her neck and chest.

L'ton spends that time pacing the weyr, while Zaenar seems to have taken the note to heart, and gone to do her homework. And then, there's a blue returning, and L'ton is rushing to his feet, running out to the ledge to meet her. However, even the bronzerider stops dead in his tracks as he just stares at the state that Niah is in, quickly moving to offer his arms up to get her and the boys into them as quickly as possible. "Shards, Niah…" He curses a bit, trying to rush her inside as quickly as he can.

Niah isn't in the mood to be rushed, still sort of in a state of shock. Betweening probably wasn't smart with her current state of mind, but Celi got her there. Both boys are comfortable, though Zialon complains a bit. Being pushed inside she shrugs her shoulders, and lets him push. Not saying anything, Celiketh hovers over her nuzzling just a bit and stretching out on his ledge. "It is ok." She says, looking down at Zialon and pulling back the elastic on his sling so she can see him.

"Shards, Niah.." L'ton murmurs again, pausing to take a step back to look at her, eyes wide in shock. "What the… What the shells happened ta ya? Are ya alright? Are.. Are the boys alright?" He asks quite concerned, fussing to get a look at the boys, even though they both seem fine. "Ah… Can Ah do anything?" Question after question after question.

Niah still doesn't answer, going inside and going straight to where she and the boys sleep. "They are fine.. I am fine. Flight." All is said clearly, her eyes glazed over and she pulls Zialon out of his sling, laying him down on the bed and shhing him. Letting him take Zion, who is quiet as can be.. "Lost my jacket.." Just leaving Zialon on the bed she goes out to Celiketh and looks around, "It has to be here.. gotta go back. DOn't have my jacket. Looking all over the ledge and pushing on Celiketh, "Jacket Celi! WHere is my jacket!"

L'ton is quickly settling Zion down to pull the boy out of his sling, bouncing him a bit before he decides that the playpen is the best place for him, and the boy is joining his cousin in there. "Ya look like.." L'ton shakes his head hurriedly, moving to try and pull Niah into a hug. "Ah'll get Mai ta make ya another jacket.. dun go back.. Ya.. Ya might not make it.." And his nervously brushing his fingers over the bruises with a soft sigh.

Niah winces, biting her lip. "We have to find my jacket.. why.. why can't I find my jacket?" Looking once more, and when pulled into a hug she just gives up and lays her head on his chest. "I am sorry for worrying you Tonny. Just. He chased, and I.. I wasn't really wanting to because I had to be home and.. and he got pushy." Shuddering she curls up against him. "I shouldn't have tried to leave.. I shouldn't have fought."

"Who got pushy, love? Celi?" He questions gently, carefully pulling Niah against him, rubbing her back and tucking her under his chin, he sighs softly, leaning to try and catch her gaze. "Or.. Or the rider?" L'ton asks, a bit more nervous to hear /that/ answer. "Did he.." And he's taking a bit of a step back to lift her chin, to meet her eyes.

Niah gazes down at the ground, and the stares at his left temple when her chin is pulled up. "Celi was fine.. no not his fault, how could he know? That.." Small sniffle.. "The rider, he.. he wouldn't let me leave and I tryed to get away and then." Moving her hands to cover her face. "His.. his name was A'dom and." Curling closer to him.

"Oh, shards Niah…" L'ton gasps slightly, moving to pull her back into his arms - tight enough to be protective, but loose enough to not stifle the poor girl. "Did.. Did he hurt ya?" L'ton asks gently, even as he lightly kisses the top of her head. "Come on, Niah.. Lets.. Lets get ya inta a nice hot shower.."

Niah nods, going back inside with L'ton "I do not want to talk about it." She says, looking over at where she left Zialon and gasping. Wiggling out of his grasp she takes the baby off the bed. "I am sorry." She says to him, putting him in the crib and laying down on her bed.

"Niah, Ah ain't asking ya ta talk about it.. Ah.. Ah just need ta know if he hurt ya.." L'ton sighs softly, and as Zialon is settled in the crib, and Niah flees to the bed, he's following after her, trying to coax her back up. "Niah.. Love.. Ya need ta take a shower. Ah'll be right there with ya, but.. Ya need one. It'll help.."

Niah lays in the bed, looking up at him for a moment and saying.. "What, what do you mean hurt?" Asking and curling her knees to her chest. At the continuos coaxing for her to shower she says, "But..the water will hurt." Getting up she places a hand on her rib cage and runs her fingers along the bite marks and bruises. "I.. I haven't seen it yet. I did not want to." Murmuring, walking slowly toward the shower, looking back to make sure he hasn't left her.

"Just… If'n he hurt ya, being ta rough.." L'ton interjects softly, following along with her every step of the way, as they head towards the showers. Pausing, he holds out his hands to her, to pull her into his arms, to help her pull off her rather destroyed clothing. "It'll help, Ah promise.."

Niah takes his hands and slips out of her pants easy, no need to worry about underthings. She isn't wearing any. Nods her head and looks around her bathroom, once out of her shirt it's apparent that the splotching runs down most of her body, and a handprint shaped bruise is showing up on her arm, another on her shoulder. Her rib cage is bruised on the left side. "I.. I don't want to talk about it." Repeating herself and biting on her lip. Looking up at him she whimpers and leans against him. "Love you."

L'ton gently holds her against him, sighing softly and shaking his head. "Ah love ya ta, Niah.. Ah'm just so worried about ya.." He murmurs, before he's gently detaching her to turn on the shower - letting it get warm even as he's slipping out of his own clothes - he's not going to leave her even now. And Tonny even knows that now is not the time to do anything but comfort - and that it may not change for some time.

Niah watches him take off his clothes, stepping into the shower without him and saying. "You don't have to stay. I'm ok." She isn't very convincing, and leans against the side of the shower. Waiting for him to join her, and saying.. "I just, I am new at this flight thing, I mean..Celi only started chasing two turns ago, at least winning and I had never thought that.."

L'ton follows her after a minute, but he's sure to remain as nonthreatening as possible, shaking his head as she tries to tell him she's okay. "Ya ain't though, love.. And.. Ah know, but even if'n yer knew, it should be like that.." And he's carefully drawing her away from the side of the shower and into the water with a soft sigh as he surveys the damage.

Niah is stiff and so it takes her a moment to get under the water. Thighs have bruises, just very bruised with the bite marks prodominately on her neck and chest. Grabbing a rag she washes herself off and asks, "SO, what do I do now?" leaning against him and trying just to not look. "Can we just act like everythings ok? For me?"

L'ton carefully holds her as she leans against him, rubbing her back as he takes the rag from her, adding some soap to it, before gently washing her back and shoulders. "Ah'll do whatever ya want me ta do, love.. If'n ya just want ta ignore it, that's fine.. But.. if'n ya dun want me ta.. ta do anything fer a while either, Ah realize that ta."

Niah leans forward with his washing, "I can't think about any of it, I want to get clean and hold my babies and go to bed." Her eyes glazed over, "Tonny.. did I do something wrong?" Asking in a quiet mousey voice, "I usually try and leave flights, just, I know it isn't nice but I do not like all the touching." At the mention of him doing anything she says, "Just, for a little bit? Just until I feel.. safe?"

"Ya didn't do anything, sweets.. Ah.. Ah can't believe what he did ta ya. Ah mean, sometimes not everyone's willing - but usually someone is, and there's no issue.." And L'ton's certainly never come off that badly from a flight - close, perhaps but they were likely received willingly. "Dun ya worry, sweets… Ah just want ya ta feel safe."

"Ok, Celi wasn't happy with how I looked afterwards." Washing off again, "When you leave, could you just throw the clothes away? I just want to forget all about it, and him." Finding her voice miore and more Niah nuzzles L'ton. "See, I am ok." Wincing she says, "Celiketh thinks something might be wrong with my ribs, they're sore.. but the rest is just.. it's all okay."

L'ton carefully turns her around, giving her a soft kiss before he's washing off her arms, crouching down long enough to get her legs, before offering her the rag back. "O'course, sweets.." He murmurs, pulling her carefully back into his arms. "We'll wrap 'em up, fer now. If'n they still hurt tamorrow, the Healers may have ta rewrap 'em.."

Niah nods, "We can do that, and then let me lay down, the boys need to be fed." Worrying and wringing the rag out. "They don't like fort much, I was hoping that.. that maybe my mother would want to see them." SHrugging her shoulders and leaning against him, stifling a sniffle and then saying. "But then, the green went up and I left the boys with Aerlyn, she is there aunt, I guess." Stepping out of the shower she wraps herself in a towel and lays down soaking wet on the bed.

L'ton turns off the water, toweling himself off more than Niah did, and then he's just looping it around his waist, not waiting to take the time while Niah's flopped on the bed. "Maybe one of these days, love.." He murmurs, as he's carefully propping pillows up, patting the bed to get her to move up towards the top of it. "Ah'll get the boys, then ya gotta rest.."

Niah is almost asleep where she is, feeding the boys might be able to wait until they're actually whining for it. With the patting she scoots forward, laying her head on the pillow and falling asleep.
