Niah Gets a Visitor

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 a 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.

It's midday, you wouldn't know by the fact the sky is a inky gray. It's the kind of day where you know it won't rain, but the sky refuses to give up on the idea of rain. It's chilly, and Niah is inside with Zaenar and the kids. Everyone is very relaxed, Zaenar has a book infront of her it's a book for much younger children who are just learning to read but she is reading aloud. Niah has gotten braze indeed, both boys are dressed exactly a like. Possibly to torture L'ton, though it seems there is a theme in the lavender and blue striped onesies as ellyza has one on as well. Ellyza is in a high chair, eating small bites of food that have been cut very small for the little girl. Zion is fast asleep, Zialon in his mothers arms fussing and kicking quietly.

L'ton seems to have yet another stack of diapers to deliver to the Weyr - after all, with three infants, you go through them rather quickly. However, without the cast, it seems that he can bring another something else - this time its a basket clearly sent from the kitchen full of fresh baked goods. Leaving the diapers once more at the door, he's pausing to listen quietly to Zaenar's reading as he nods in greeting to the bluerider, with a smile.

Niah smiles brightly as L'ton comes in, but when the man doesn't come over and see her she stands walking over the curtained area and saying, "Zae, could you.. entertain your uncle for me." It's all said in a very cold voice, not like Niah who's quiet sound usually does not sound so uncaring. Zae gives him a look, and says "Uncle L'ton, Weyrsecond sir would you watch Ellyza so.. I could talk to Miss Niah? Please sir?" Asking about glancing towards the curtain.

L'ton blinks at Niah as she walks over to the curtain area, blinking a bit. "Niah.. Ah was just listening ta Zae.." And then he's giving up, sighing softly and giving Zae a nod. "Course, lil'Zae." He agrees, moving to settle down next to the girl, though he's stealing curious looks at the curtain and Niah all the while.

Zaenar stands and Ellyza stares at L'ton, stuffing another small piece of who-knows-what in her mouth and moving to cover her face with her hands, she peeks through her fingers at him and then leaving one hand over one over her eyes grabs another bite of the mystery food. A small conversation can be heard between Zaenar and Niah, Niah quiet voice says "I.. just wanted a kiss or something and well he just comes to see you." Zaenar then squeaks in, saying "Miss Niah ma'am you could go talk to him and Ah can hold Zialon. Don' be mad at me Miss Niah." Niah sighs loudly, "I could not be mad at you Zaenar." The two have grown closer.

L'ton is sitting there, straining to hear the conversation between the two of them, before he's drawn into playing peek-a-boo with little Ellyza, putting his hands over his face to hide, and then peeking back out, giggling as she shoves more food in her mouth. After a moment, L'ton looks back to the curtain. "Niah-pet?" He ventures.

Ellyza giggles and knocks her food off the plate as L'ton plays back, kicking her feet and excited she says "Eaaanahnah" It makes no sense, but it is darn cute. Niah comes back out from behind the curtain, Zaenar behind and she says, "Zae, don't let a visit distract you from you lesson." Pointing to the book and then settling down in a rocking chair which must be new, at the moment someone knocks at the door and a man about Niahs age comes in. He wears the knot a greenrider from Fort weyr, black hair and bright blue eyes. Come in he is very loud, at least to loud for a house with young children. He squeals, and has a slight lisp "Narni? Nari girl.. I'd heard I mean but, just look at you!" He has a bit of a hop skip and Niah seems lost for words, then she stutters out "Irenigh?" Obviously as suprised as everyone else is by the visit and Zialon starts to scream. Zaenar gets quiet with her reading, looking at the man then L'ton and seeming confused.

L'ton starts to apologize to Niah, but then there's a knock and L'ton is hurriedly getting to his feet, moving to try and intercept the man. But then, as he knows her name, and she seems to know his, L'ton is left to stare at one than the other with almost the same look on his face as Zaenar has on hers, quickly rushing to get Zialon as he starts to scream. "What the-.." ANd then he's peering over the baby at Niah. "Niah, who is that..?" NO matter that he's standing right there.

Niah seems to be in a state of temporary shock, not even stuttering as she stares at the feminine man in front of her, as L'ton seems to want to take the screaming Zialon she reluctantly hands him over. The man stand there for a minute, silly and mischievous grin on his face and then very quickly runs forward, grabbing Niahs hand in a way no one ever touches her and twirling her around. Suprisingly Niah giggles and says, "Irenigh, but.. but I don't understand how did you find me?" The stranger says, "Silly Nari! It's just I'nigh now, and I heard someone in the lower caverns say Niah and I had heard that was your new name Nari and look at you! Who in the world would let you have kids?" Niah giggles, it's a glee rarely seen on her face and then she turns and says.. "Umm, Irenigh, I mean I'nigh this is.. my.. umm this is My L'ton. Tonny, this is I'nigh."

Sulking is really the best word that could be used for what L'ton is doing now. Suddenly this new… man… is present in the weyr, and so the bronzerider just sits, cuddling Zialon and habitually bouncing him a bit as he fusses. Looking from one to he other, and back, he narrows his glare slightly, though after a moment, he does nod in greeting, even as he is moving to hover somewhat protectively over the rest of the weyr's occupants.

I'nigh walks towards L'ton, well he has the baby and when close enough he says, "Ahh, look at you. You are so cute.. Always knew you'd make cute ones Nari." He seems to lack proper respect for the babies personal space. He goes back pinching niahs arm and bouncing on his feet. Niah watches L'ton, and looks concerned, "Tonny.. umm I'nigh and I we, we grew up together well. Actually I grew up and he just grew." She turns and sticks her tongue out, this is a strange Niah around this man… then she says, "Five turns, almost five turns since I left I'nigh, and now." The man watches l'ton, and giggles just like a girl, saying to her "No reason your boytoy has to get jealous, I know my boytoy would hate it if he saw me around someone as cute as you Nari." She goes over to Zialon and then looks worried again, "Tonny.. are you ok?" She asks and Zaenar has somewhat retreated to the sofa.

L'ton tenses a bit as the baby is examined, gaze sweeping over this Fortian rider, making a little bit of a face before he's turning back to annoy Niah further. Only after a moment, does he nod to Niah, trying to offer them both a bit of a smile, even as he retreats to the sofa with Zaenar. "Ah'm fine.." He offers, clearly rather confused and even overwhelmed by the man's exuberance.

The man gives another bounce, and leans, kissing Niah on the cheek and making her face turn very bright red. He reaches up and play slaps her, "Nari that color is horrible on you." Then he wrinkles his nose and says, "Denalith and me have things to do, I have to go tell Aerlyn and Westin and everyone else where you are." Niah looks horror struck sitting back down, "But-but.. Irenigh wait I don't." But the man is gone, weird visitor and Niah in a very abrupt mood change breaks into tears pulling up the catten Precious and saying.. "Why.. did he have to find me." But.. just a moment ago she was happy. Zaenar jumps up and goes to Niahs side, "miss niah. Don't cry, please dun cyr." She gives Niah a hug and Niah stands giving Zaenars arm a small squeeze and laying down on the bed. The catten doesn't look happy, her fur is getting wet with tears.

L'ton quickly moves to step between them as he play slaps her, but then he's begging off and disappearing, and L'ton is left to stare at his back as he leaves. As she suddenly breaks into tears, L'ton awkwardly juggles the baby before leaving the now semi-calm Zialon in his crib, giving Zaenar a wide-eyed look before he's hurrying after her, settling down on the bed, to gently run his hand over her hair. "What's wrong, sweets?" He asks softly.

Niah sniffles, pressing her face into kitten fur and saying "Nothings wrong, he just.. showed up without warning.. He did not even think that when I left, it was because I did not want to go back." She states and scoots forward, away from him and biting on her lip which has not yet healed from when she had the boys, the split continues to be reopened with her worry. Shaking all over she scoots into her sea of pillows, and strokes the kitten who has a very nasty look on her face. ".. tonny? Have.. have you ever wanted to, to change the past?" Zaenar is busy trying to calm Zialon who does not seem to want anyone but mom.

L'ton continues to scoot after her as she scoots away, moving to try and snag both of her wrists so that she can't scoot any further away. "Shards, Niah.. Ah didn't think ya left fer that.." And then he's giving her a little bit of a shake. "Niah, we always wanna change something, but if we did, we'd not be the same." He tries to console her, even as he absently pats poor Precious.

Niah shakes her head. "I left because, because I was very unhappy. Even, with friends I.. I couldn't like that tonny." She gets quiet headtilted to the side as she squeezes the kitty and hugging the angry little cat to her chest. As he has both of her wrists she looks very frightened, and says "Please, don't hurt me tonny, please.. please." She looks as scared as he has ever seen her, and then Zion starts to cry and Niah looks over at the baby, whispering "Shh.. it's ok my sweet little boy, it's ok.. I am here."

"Ah ain't gonna hurt ya, ya just can't run away, sweets. Ah ain't gonna hurt ya, or anything.. Ah just dun want ya ta ignore me." And then he's glancing over, carefully relinquishing her wrists and giving her a bit of a kiss. "Sweets, but yer happy now, right? Ah mean.. here?" And he gives her a bit of a smile, hoping.

Niah relaxes as he says that and once he let go of her she scoops up Zion, the little boy is searching for her face as usual and he break into an immediate smile as he sees his mother. Niah can't help but smile back, sitting back on the bed with the now content little boy she says, "I am wonderfully happy here Tonny. I love being with you L'ton, you and our boys.. the second best thing to ever happen to me." Cradling the child who is sucking on her shirt she pulls the blanket L'ton brought her off the bottom of the bed, and feeds the baby, able to do it one handed and moving to put her hand on L'tons.

"Ah hope the first was Celiketh?" L'ton teases her, grinning and watching her for a moment before he's flipping his hand over to squeeze hers, leaning a bit closer. "Ah just wanna make ya happy, ya know? Ah mean, ya mean a lot ta me, and Ah can't stand seeing ya hurt like that.."

Niah nods, Zaenar puts Zialon back in the crib. The younger twin is asleep, and squeezing his hand gently back she says. "Thank you." She whispers stroking the baby's back and saying, "Celiketh was.. he was the greatest thing that could ever happen to anyone ever." She cuddles up to him and yawns. "Do, well.. do you mind if I'nigh visits me?"

L'ton gives her a bit of a squeeze, and shakes his head. "Nah, that's fine.. Ah mean, just dun feel like ya have ta let him visit, if'n yer unhappy seeing him and all, ya know?" He smiles at her, nudging her a bit. "Why dun ya rest a bit? Ah'm sure ya've had a rough lil bit.."

Giggling just a little Niah says, "I won't go see him, I do not go to fort unless I absolutely have to but. But.." Another yawn, and she stands placing Zion next to his brother and cuddling down into the covers. "Alright, just.. come see me ok tonny? I enjoy your company."
