Checking on Niah

Ierne Weyrhold - Main Beach(#825RJs)
A long curving beach, the sand yellowish brown, facing eastward along the Great Bay coast. Off on the horizon, far in the distance, can be seen the cliffs of Southern Hold, on the opposite side.
The beach curves north-northeast, and south-southeast, stretching both directions quite a distance, while gentle waves lap in from the bay to the east. Far beyond the hide-tide mark, at the forest's edge, the cobbled stones of the road lead west toward Ierne.

It is early morning Ierne time, the sun hasn't really risen yet but the sky is brightening a bit but it's cloudy so it's hard to tell. The air holds a slight chill to it, the waves very mild this early and it's peaceful to be outside. With no one up it is the perfect time for Niah to wash Celiketh, while some sleep niah scrubs. Wearing a pair of shorts and what could either be a bikini top or a sports bra, she is pretty far out so much so that Celi is almost completely submerged.

Visiting the beach despite the early hour at Ierne is L'ton, meandering down the sandy walkway. Pausing at Niah's door, he looks through a window before turning to gaze at the beach. And then he's spotting the blue submerged out there in the water, and he's lifting a hand to wave at her, though he's not bothering to call out yet.

Niah wasn't paying a lot of attention, though Celiketh notices and warbles. Spotting the bronzerider she swims in, but then shaking her head she uses the quick way out. Getting on Celi, without straps she holds onto him. With a short jump and then a glide the sand is blown up, and Niah dismounts slipping off with a little thump and asking "Is everything ok?"

"Of course it is sweet heart, Ah wanted to come and see how ya were doing." He explains with a smile as Niah and Celiketh appear on the beach proper, and he's moving to pull her into a hug even though she's just out of the water. "How're ya feeling, hm? Ya still doing okay?" He offers, stealing a kiss as he asks.

Celiketh is staying close, watching her and then turning so he can wallow in the sand. Niah nods, shaking a bit with a breeze and smiling, "I am doing alright, gained more weight." She wrinkles her nose, letting him pull her into a huge and saying, "You don't want to get all wet." She pushes her wet hair out of her face, sighing and saying. "Have you done it yet?"

"Ah dun care if'n Ah do." And as she shakes a bit, he tightens his hold on her trying to keep her warm. "Ah dun think yet. Mai keeps going back and forth between ta Xanadu, so we ain't having no luck. Ain't fer lack of trying though, Ah promise." He chuckles, tipping her chin up to give her a kiss in greeting.

Niah takes the kiss, and nods letting him keep her warm and just staying quiet and close to him. Then as the breeze picks up and even being near him isn't going to keep her warm enough in the current attire she asks, "You have somewhere to be?" Waiting for a response and saying, "I mean it is ok if you do and everything." Celiketh has already moved, waiting for niah to let him inside.

"Ah've got some time sweets, tis why Ah'm here." As she shivers again, he quickly moves to scoop her up and cart her towards her weyrhome. "Ya gotta get inside, sweets, or yer gonna catch a cold, and then where will we be?" He shakes his head, leaning against the door to push it open before depositing her, still damp, on the sofa. "Now then.." He states simply, tilting his head to look down at her. "Yer eating, right?"

Niah squeals as she is carted off she wiggles her feet and says while he goes, "Don't drop me, please don't drop me." She looks down then holds onto him tightly, "I was not that cold." Being put on her sofa she wraps herself up in a blanket, leaving room so he can sit down. "When I want to." Is her response. Celiketh flops down on his couch, but snorts in a way that shows his opinion on all of it. "Shush." Saying to Celi, blushing. "I have to be doing something wrong, I am gaining weight." Explaining.

"Yer suppose ta gain weight lil'bit. Besides, pregnant women are sexy, with their rounded stomachs. Ya shouldn't be worried about that, ya know." He tells her as he settles down next to her, moving to put her legs across his lap. "Ya need ta eat, though. Its really a good thing. Dun make me send someone here ta watch you all the time."

Niah leans back but lets him do what he wants with her legs, smiling just a little. "I eat, I'm not worried about getting fat." Blushing a bit and saying to him, "I'm sorry, I don't mind the weight gain at all it just feels so different." Explaining and saying, "I already look big, and I am not even supposed to have gained much yet." She explains, trying to emphasize her point by pressing the blanket to her sides, she pooches just a really tiny bit, easily mistaken if he hadn't seen her before. "Don't be mad at me." She asks eyes big, "I don't think I could stand it if you got mad at me." It's a small quiet voice, pulling her legs towards her chest and placing her head on her knees.

"Ya ain't that big. Ah think its cute." And as she pulls her knees up to her chest, he shakes his head, moving closer to unwrap her from herself and pull her into his lap. "Ah ain't mad at ya, Niah. Ah just want ta make sure ya eat 'nuff fer yerself and yer lil'ya, ya know?" And then he's resting his palm on her stomach, with a smile. "Ah think ya'll look wonderful no matter what, dun ya worry."

Niah smiles, relaxing a bit as he gets her into his lap, "Good, because there isn't any going back." Smiling, still a little nervous and her clothing soaked but she says "I don't want you to worry about me." She complains, just a little complaint lapsing into silence and smiling at the hand, "Do strange people really touch your stomach?" Questioning, and saying "I am not getting any smaller, so I'm glad you will like me anyway." Niah says, he voice not teasing by sincere.

"They will, when ya get bigger. The lil kids and the other women, and all them old aunties and uncles. All of 'em'll wanna feel it, 'specially once he starts ta move around and kick and stuff." L'ton nods quickly, absently running his palm over it, before he leans to give her a kiss. "Like Ah said, Ah think its sexy, so ya dun have anything ta worry about from meh."

Niah looks horror struck, that's a lot of people. He might as well have handed her a death sentence, she gets closer to him shuddering and saying, "Is it rude to ask them not to?" Sighing and getting quiet, with either thought or just lack words as she does. Instead looking up and him as he kisses her and inhaling deeply, then she giggles a very random giggle saying, "He? so you think it's a boy?"

"Nah. Ah bet if'n ya asked 'em not ta, most of 'em would stop." L'ton offers after a moment's thought. As she giggles he grins. "Ah dunno, maybe. But, Ah dun just wanna call him… it or something. Ah dunno." He shrugs before leaning and stealing another kiss as she doesn't move away. "Ah'll be surprised though, whatever it is."

"Well then, I will go out and not have to go and eat all my meals really late." Niah says with a shrug, "Though, you will show me around right? I don't want to get lost and not be able to find Celi, or you or get home." Worry mostly, her fast little voice sounding like she's already gotten lost, at the kiss she just relaxes again moving so that she can put her head on his chest. "How about, because I agree we call him a him for now."

"Works fer me." He agrees, and chuckles, nodding. "Ah think Ah can make sure ya dun get lost. Ah know it'll seem like a big place at first, but ya get used ta it pretty fast. And Ah'll be there and Mai's there, and there's lots of real helpful people, and they'll keep an eye on ya ta." He grins at her, snuggling her as she rests her head on his chest, absently petting her hair.
