Niah's With the Healers?

Ista Weyr - Infirmary
Equipped with the latest healing technologies, this spotlessly clean, large room smells slightly of antiseptic and numbweed. At one end, cots sit for the recovering to recover on. At the other end, are the proceedure tables. Cabinets with supplies and medical files sit along one wall. At any given moment, there could be any number of people in here. A weyrchild with a broken arm, a mother recovering from giving birth or even one of the residents recovering from heat stroke or sun poisoning, a rider and dragon recovering from a strained wing muscle.

Outside it has just gotten dark, the day over and done with for the most part. Everything is calm, and dragons perch on ledges. Except for Celiketh, who sits in the bowl near the infirmary. Odd because getting Niah to an infirmary is like pulling teeth, on a sabertooth tiger. Inside Niah is about 3 beds in, curtain pulled around for privacy. It does take some questioning how they got her in there.

Perhaps Celiketh sent a quick snippet of information to Dhonzayth. Perhaps the bronze pair happened to be flying over head and spotted Celiketh. Or Perhaps, even, it was prearranged, though with Niah, that really makes no sense. Either way, Dhonzayth is settling near Celiketh with a rumble, his battle scars all but healed, and L'ton is dismounting to duck inside, hurriedly being pointed towards the bed after a few soft inquiries. Pulling back the edge of the curtain, he sticks his head in with a look of concern on his face. "Lil'bit?"

The simple little cot, Niah sitting up on it getting her knees as close to her chest as she can. When she see's the curtain move she jumps, but when it's l'ton she doesn't seem to relax much more. "Hi." Is all she says pulling up the small thin blanket they give you in the infirmary and says, "Are you ok?" An out of place question since she is the one in the bed, she frowns sighing and says. "I'm fine.. we're fine? I think." Confused little Ni gets quiet, a slight frown on her face.

"Why're ya down here, lil'bit? Did something happen?" L'ton asks, still quite concerned as he steps around the curtain, pulling it back, and moving to lightly settle down on the edge of Niah's got, reaching a hand to rest lightly on her knee. "It ain't like ya ta be down here, so what happened?" And he chews on his lip, watching her.

Niah doesn't answer, shifting and flinching uncharacteristically as he touches her knee. At the question she winces, trembling from head to toe and shaking her head, she is a really bad liar. The words stutter out and are a jumbled little mumble, "Not-thing happened." Putting a hand on the side of her stomach and shrugging, "Maybe I just came?" Offering up potential solutions. Outside Celiketh snorts.

[DTU/Project] Dhonzayth senses that Celiketh a wash of water, red tinges and even out of place brown and black swirling. The voice is musical, but angry «Mine was upset and had an accident. Are you and yours alright?»

Dhonzayth> Dhonzayth latches onto the information provided by Celiketh with a wash of sparkling mica. « I will tell mine. »

Forehead wrinkles up as she flinches, and L'ton is quickly dropping his hand from her knee, shaking his head. "What happened, Niah? Did ya fall? What happened?" He questions with worry, and increased forcifulness as Celiketh gives him the bit of information that he needs. "Why were you upset, sweets? What happened?"

Niah sighs, as he adds more force she just shakes more and looks more upset. Finally ending at least some of the confusion, a healer comes in the younger apprentice asking how she is feeling and Niah stutters out fine. Then the man says, "You should not try that trick again, lucky you where above water." Niah turns bright red as the man moves to leave, and says.. "I fell, I had done it so much at ierne and I didn't think it would be hard here, but I tryed to jump and slipped. and I'm sorry I just have been doing that since me and him could fly together, water is really hard." Sighing, and pulling up the side of her shirt. Water must be hard one side of her is a light shade of purple.

[DTU/Project] Celiketh projects to Dhonzayth . o O ( Ask yours to be gentle with my heart song, I have told her it is all my fault but she feels responsible. My Niah does not need more guilt. )

L'ton swivles to look at the Healer, his eyes widening slightly at the exchange before he's looking back at Niah with a look of worry. "Are you…. Are they.." And it seems that the words have left him as he moves to pull her gently into a hug, careful of the forming purple bruise on hre side. "Oh sweetheart.. Ah was just worried about ya. Ah just dunno what Ah'd do, if'n something happened ta ya." And then he gives her a soft kiss on her forehead, gently leaving his arm around her shoulders.

Niah flinches again as he pulls her into the hug, on defensive especially in the place she would rather not be. At his stuttering she almost giggle, the ever calm L'ton upset seems to be slightly entertaining. Suprising she can giggle at all here. At the questioning the healer turns around and explains that she is restricted to the ground for the next two sevendays. Then the young man leaves, and Niah sighs. Leaning into the hug on her good side and looking at him very closely, as if she could see under his clothes. "Are you ok, me and him are ok. He's ahead of schedule." She rolls her eyes just a little at the end, giving her stomach an affectionate pat. "They are forcing me to come back every two sevendays." With a soft sigh she moves to lay her head on his arm.

L'ton gives her another soft kiss on her forehead as she actually giggles, and he's glancing over his shoulder again, nodding in understanding to the Healer. "Ah'll do my best ta keep her there." And then he's looking back to Niah, carefully keeping a light hold on her, shaking his head. "Ah'm find, lil'bit. Ya shouldn't scare me like that, though. Ya had meh all worried, and Dhonzayth ta." He explains in a whisper, moving to rest his hand over hers on her stomach. "Well, every two sevendays ain't ta bad, really. And, it'll be good ta keep a close eye on 'em."

Niah sighs tiredly, "I do not know why you where worried, if anything serious happened to me Celiketh would have told Dhon." She doesn't consider falling from a flying dragon into the ocean a serious occurunce. "I came because I hurt, and Celiketh would not take me home and I figured you had to be hurt with the way you took off and Mai was probably mad at me." She's all worried, and winces as she shifts and presses against the bruised portion of her body.

L'ton shakes his head hurriedly. "Ah wasn't hurt… Just…" He lifts his hand to wave it in the air a bit, as if trying to find the word. "Needing something. Dhon just got a few scratches, but they ain't ta bad. Bloody gold." He mutters to himself before shaking his head, and looking back to Niah, with a bit of a smile. "Mai ain't mad at ya, Ah promise. And, Ah didn't mean ta barge in like that, Ah really wasn't paying attention to where Dhon was going, other than ta Meluth."

Niah nods, raising and eyebrow just a bit. Clearly confused, "Needing something?" She asks and then it dawns on her, you can read her thoughts by her facial expressions. Turning bright red she covers her mouth, "Oh, I am so sorry." Yawning she sighs, "I have been here all night, and I didn't sleep well." She admits, pulling the blanket up to keep herself warmer. "Do you mind if? I mean you don't have to stay you could leave me all alone in here." small guilt trip. "I just, really want to sleep."

"Ah'll stay at least til ya fall asleep sweets." He offers with a smile, giving her a bit of a kiss. "But, yeah. Now ya know, Ah wasn't upset at ya or anything, but.. Ah didn't wanna put ya in what might have been a real bad situation." He says softly. Giving her a hug, he's tucking her in more securely, before moving to pull a chair up to the bedside, settling into it, and leaving his hand resting lightly on her arm as he settles in.

Niah nods slightly and yawns again, Laying on her other side to avoid the bruised area. As he moves she relaxes sighing and closing her eyes, probably to sleep. Outside Celiketh finally relaxes, though he stays by the door to the infirmary.
