It's beautiful.

Igen Weyr - Living Caverns
Second only to the Hatching Sands in size — although its walls are not so nearly circular — the living cavern is filled with numerous tables, almost too many to count. Most bear markings by rank and Wing, though there are a couple of dozen free for anyone's use. The Weyrleaders and other ranking residents have the table farthest from the kitchen and hearths, although the hearths are kept as low-burning as possible, just enough to keep the stew pot that always hangs for late-night nibblers at a good temperature. Favored drinks, particularly iced klah and juice, are kept on ice and interspersed at various food tables scattered about, along with baskets of rolls and fruit. There are, of course, scheduled mealtimes, and at certain points of the day the available fare slides into the menu for the nearest meal, be it breakfast, lunch, dinner, or late-night snackings, but the staff has long since acknowledged that people will sit to talk and nibble here at all hours. In the cooler parts of the evening in particular, the cavern hosts games of chess, checkers, dragonpoker, and others. Several degrees are knocked off thanks to the Technician Craft's new cooling system. There are several 'places' that you can find a seat at.

R'oc sits with a few riders drinking some Klah and laughing over something. "You ever tell her that and you'll be the one running." He chuckles a tear in his eye. "Alright alright I'll see you guys later." The riders stand up and walk out still chuckling, while R’oc sits back in his chair and takes a drink. "Those guys."

Zorya makes her way across the cavern, having collected a mug of klah for herself and now searching for a seat. "Tell who what?" the girl inquires curiously of the weyrsecond, having come close enough to his table just in time to catch that little bit of commentary.

The canidate catches him just off guard, the man looks at her and then tries to think of something. "Uh…not…to tell you…how cute you are." The nervous smile and chuckle don't give anthing away right. "I mean it's not like I was hiding anything from anyone that could make me do things that I don't want to do." Wonder what it was he is hiding?

A hint of blush colors he girl's cheeks at the comment, but the look on her face is one of uncertainty as to whether she believes it or not. "Thank you sir," Zorya replies, "But somehow Ah have a feelin' that wasn't what ya were talkin about." But the thought is left behind with a slight shrug even as she lifts the mug in hands to her lips, taking a sip from its contents before asking, "So.. how long do you think this will last?" the question obviously of the storm outside, as the hand not holding onto the mug motions towards the entrance.

R'oc looks out towards the bowl and says. "You never know long it will last, sometimes it could last a few hours, other times days." He looks back to her and adds. "You just have to hope you did your job and got everything secured." He then smiles at her other comment. "Oh are you saying I would lie to you?" The playful smile on his face as he turns his head to make sure you know 'who' isn't around. "I just wanted to keep it a secret." He pulls out a small gold heart shape locket, the careful designs on the small trinket seem to bring out some beauty.

Zorya nods slightly as she too sends a glance towards the entrance. Looking back to the weyrsecond she settling into a seat being that the conversation is continuing and the rest of the table is empty. Days? The thought seems to linger in her expression, but is soon enough discarded with another sip of klah as the locket is present. "Its beautiful." she breaths, one hand reaching out, fingers hovering just above the piece as if to trace the designs without touching. "She'll love it." The 'who' being fairly obvious now.

R'oc smiles and then says. "I hope so, I got it because it's her present for taking care of herself." He smiles and then looks around again. "Plus I can always use some help when it comes to sweet talking her, you never know when I'm going to do something stupid." He laughs a moment before slides it back into his pocket.

"Ah'm sure of it." Zorya assures, pulling her hand back to her lap after a moment. A smile curls the edges of the girls lips and she nods again, "Yeah, well ya do have a habit of that don't ya." she teases ever so slightly.

R'oc laughs and then says. "So how is the young canidate today?" He smiles as the mug of Klah moves to his lips, a sip of the drink and he looks at her. "You know I'll get you if you tell her before I do right." The grin comes as he watches a few people across the room. "I can't have anyone spoiling the surprise."

Zorya laughs lightly, "Ah'm doin alright." she replies in a way that suggests it might be better if the storm outside were over, or hadn't begun in the first place. "Ah wouldn't blame ya for that. Ya have my word Ah won't say nothing. What'd be the fun in ruinin yer surprise anyway.."

R'oc nods before he turns his head towards the lower Caverns and then he stands up, the empty mug quickly picked up as a server passes by. "Well Zorya don't be scared all you need to worry about is staying inside." The man smiles and walks towards the lower caverns. "Listen I'm going to wash up and make sure I'm clean for my lady." He winks at her and then he says. "You should relax on days like this, no reason to be scared."

"Ah'm not." Zorya replies. Scared and nervous are different. As are scared and 'scared', but the girl nods as he heads off. "I'll see ya around then." she agrees.
