Month 12, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries:
Winter -3 - 2 C | 26 - 35 F
Fort is already home to snowfalls, though early in the month they fade away when the sun rises. As the month progresses, more snow stays on the ground, ending up with several feet of snow before the month is over. The areas around homes and populations has the snow shoveled away or trodden down. Icicles attached to Weyr ledges prove some danger and are routinely removed.

Ista Boundaries:
Winter, 9 - 21 C | 48 - 69 F
Generally warm enough to go about without a jacket on, Ista has low humidity but high chance of rain, generally in the form of vicious afternoon thunderstorms. The storms wash away any bite of heat the day had, and leave it feeling fresh for the night. The days are short, but grow bright quickly and the afternoons seem to be particularly short when heavy thunderstorms roll in and cover the sky.

Telgar Boundaries:
Winter, -5 - 0 C | 23 - 32 F
Bitterly cold, with icy winds constantly flowing down from the mountains. Freezing rain is almost constant; the sky always a murky grey and the ground slippery with slushy refrozen ice. The days are extremely short, with the nights dropping a good number below the daily average. Icicles attached to Weyr ledges prove a major danger, and are checked upon every day, with anything bigger than a fist being removed.


Month 07, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries:
Summer 27 - 38 C | 80 - 100 F
Light breezes down from the mountains tot he North keep the temperature comfortable, even when the sun can bake an egg on the edge of a weyr. Sunburn is common.

Ista Boundaries:
Summer, 34 - 43 C | 93 - 110 F
A very dry, dusty heat. Little to no rain, causing more than some to worry about the drought not breaking and the rest of the Isle being at risk of fires. Many seek the depths of weyr, hold or hall during the midday and early afternoon heat.

Telgar Boundaries:
Summer, 26 - 35 C | 79 - 95 F
Muggy, sticky and generally just plain humid. Thunder storms are regular occurances, often happening in the early afternoon or evening, with heavy rainfall before drying off sometime in the night. Mornings are usually crisp, but warm up swiftly.


Month 06, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries: Season, Low to High
Ista Boundaries: Season, Low to High
Telgar Boundaries: Season, Low to High

Month 04, 740 AL
North: Early Spring | South: Early Autumn
−1.9 C to 4.7 C | 20.0 C to 29.0


Spring has sprung, with the snow slowly melting in much of the North, creating mushy grounds and greyish, icy snow piles that are doing their best to melt. In comparison, Ista finds itself naturally warmer, (~10C / 50) and many people who can find rides are making their way to the Island to spend some time in warmth and sunshine, away from the lingering touch of winter.

Katila is beginning to cool down to more reasonable temperature, but is no less muggy and uncomfortable to those who are not used to the seasons. It is still a good place to escape to when seeking a warm day or a nice swim at the lake, though.

The Red Star can be seen by those who choose to see it, causing no shortage of whispers that Thread will return - and just as much dismissal from those who do not believe. After all, it's been so long, surely it is no longer a threat! Weyrleaders are, regardless, beginning to put together wings in their Weyrs, if only to keep troublesome and bored riders busy.

Month 12, 739 AL
North: Early Winter| South: Early Summer
-3.1 to 2.1 C | 20.4 C to 29.4 C


Winter has come slowly to the Northern lands of Pern, with more rain and cold winds than snow. As the month progresses, more and more snow will fall, with frequent blizzard-like storms towards the very end of the month. Telgar and Fort will in particular become burried under mountains of snow, while Ista is sunjected to frequent icy rainstorms, and heavy winds coming in from across the ocean.

13.4 to 21.0 C | 13.8 C to 25.6 C


Following the disastrous fires (sometime in around the 28th of Month 08), Ista Isle has found itself suddenly in the midst of constant rain; not enough to flood, but a steady, dreary downfall that seems to only take a time out for a couple of hours here and there, before coming back again. Its cast the entire sooty Isle into a sombre and depressed mood. Alongside the rain, the weather is muggy and while not hot, is not particularly cool, either.

The rest of Northern Pern is getting their usual weather, though they, too, have been called to action following the wildfires that savaged Ista. Many individuals who called Ista Island home have been relocated not just to Ista Weyr, Ista Hold or Sea Cliff Hold, but also to other areas of Pern, whether with family or friends.

Month 08, 739 AL
North: Late Summer | South: Late Winter
17.4 to 25.5 C | 10.8 C to 23.2 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm - 37 to 45 C - has resulted in an incredibly dry summer, with little to no rain. This was climaxed by a dry thunderstorm, the results of which caused three fires to start across the Island on the 24.07.739 in the early morning hours. While the results of this are yet to be played out, the events will no doubt leave more than just the scarring of the land.

Month 07, 739 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter
18.0 to 26.6 C | 10.2 C to 21.9 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 37 to 45 C range, making it now a more than slightly undesirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the more enjoyable early summer weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind. Ista's limited farmlands and fields are dry and dusty, with golden straw instead of grass where there is any growth at all.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are still getting a lot of evening rain and the occasional thunderstorms, which cools down the populus and allows them to sleep easily without sweating their brains out like the Istans.

9.9 C to 18.4 C | 13.7 C to 24.5 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 32 to 40 C range, making it a highly desirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the chilly mid-spring weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are getting a lot of rain, thunderstorms, and cloudy days. Grass is growing, flowers flowering, and baby animals popping up all over the place! Yay spring!

Spring has sprung, with the snow slowly melting in much of the North, creating mushy grounds and greyish, icy snow piles that are doing their best to melt. In comparison, Ista finds itself uncommonly warm (~12C / 53.6) and many people who can find rides are making their way to the Island to spend some time in warmth and sunshine, away from the lingering touch of winter.

Katila is beginning to cool down to more reasonable temperature, but is no less muggy and uncomfortable to those who are not used to the seasons. It is still a good place to escape to when seeking a warm day or a nice swim at the lake, though.

Month 11, 738 AL
North: Late Autumn | South: Late Spring


Autumn is coming to an end, with the days slowly becoming shorter still, with early nights and late mornings. The temperature is getting very cool, with jackets being more required, but it has yet to actually snow. Despite this, it is often raining and miserable.

The Southern contient is in full bloom, with flowers coming to life in the grasses and on the trees. The skies are bright blue with fluffy clouds, and occassional sunshowers bringing a dampness to the day. The nights are still crisp, but not cold. The ground is starting to dry up as water is absorbed by the blooming flora.

Month 10, 738 AL
North: Mid Autumn | South: Mid Spring


Autumn is in full tilt, with the leaves a shocking array of orange and red, and more of them on the ground than on the trees. The skies are often a clear and crisp blue, with a cool breeze flowing, shifting the leaves and sending them scattering. Rain is not common, but when it does roll in the skies are dark like night come early, and thunderstorms are not uncommon, though they don't last for long and the amount of rain that falls isn't too heavy.

Month 09, 738 AL
North: Start Autumn | South: Start Spring


Nothern regions are entering into Autumn, with the trees beginning to change to their reds and oranges, while the air is beginning to feel more crips. There are still more warm days than cool, and the nights are mostly warm enough for light bedding still. Rain has faded away and most days are clear and bright.

The Southern contient finds itself heading into spring, with rain and flowers vying for attention. The ground is often muddy and squishy, while the skies are either bright and blue, or overcast wtih fluffy clouds.

Month 08, 738 AL
North: End Summer | South: End Winter


Summer is winding to an end in the Northern hemisphere, with the weather slowly cooling and the trees beginning to turn their leaves. The days are still long and bright, but the sun is beginning to lose some of its strength.

The coastal Weyrs are falling victim to coastal storms, strong winds and heavy rains with thunder and lightening.

The more inbound Weyrs and Holds find themselves drier, not getting nearly as much rain or storms, they find themselves on the end of a long drought.

Month 07, 738 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter


Summer is in full spring in the Nothern hemisphere, with the bulk of each day being unbearbly hot, followed by vicious thunderstorms and heavy humidity in the evenings and at night.

The coastal areas are experiencing monsoon like weather, and spend a lot of their time locked away in Hold, Hall or Weyr.

The more inner locations find themselves faced with more dry heat during the day, and horrible humidity in the evening and at night while the thunderstorms rage.

ITS AN UPDATE! HOORAH!

I'm not dead, my loves! This month's Event is 'Close Call!' - have fun! Stamps will be uploaded and on display in our Discord chatroom.

There is a topic here for discussion about Pernese religions and belief systems, including in and out of Weyr opinions (variably and as a whole) in regards to delicate matters, such as birth, death, and the afterlife. Also, ghosts anyone? Now I'm imagining a giant arse dragon ghost....

Healer Hall is accepting Gold Candidates (just from Fort, for now) and R'nya will soon be discussing with his Weyrwoman Rhaedalyn the merits of bringing in additional female candidates.... on the condition they are approved for Healer Apprenticeship...

Thallyath, Casa's little gold dragon, will be taking to the skies for her maiden flight in the first week of April (IC date will be 740-04-01) and while a mate is already decided, this clutch will be PC and more candidates are ALWAYS welcome, whether you want them to Impress this round --- or not!

September 2018

Spring is here! ... In Australia, anyway!

This month’s riveting event is ‘Seas of Fun’, in honour of International Pirate’s Day! After all the drama with the fires, we expect that taking to the sea (or lake, river, pond, etc) would be a very relaxing way to spend some downtime for many dragonriders and Holderfolk alike!

In preparation for October, the even is “Memories of the Past”, which we hope will be a fun way to explore your character’s past, either in solo posts or threads, as inner monolog or as back posting! How you choose to partake is entirely up to you!

October will also see our next PC HATCHING! In order to have your Candidate qualify for Impression, they must have no less than 20 posts! There are lots of characters floating around who would be more than happy to help your Candidate breech that count! Don’t forget to also UPDATE YOUR APPLICATIONS where applicable, or make sure it is submitted at all! We can’t Impress your character if we don’t know what they should be getting!

As always, be sure to submit your threads to the IC RP Timeline submission thread, so they can be added to the list! While you’re at it, remember to submit your favourite quotes – from your character’s or others! – to the Quote Submission Thread! We want to see some recent quotes thrown in with our old ones!

If you haven't already, please drop by the Dragonrider Weyr Allocations thread, and let us know where your dragonriders call home. We are hoping to set up Wings across the three PC Weyrs over the next month or so, and your assistance is much appreciated! As a result, we will be looking for Wingleaders, Wingseconds, and of course Candidates for the clutches we have scheduled for this year!

August 2018

ITS AUGUST! Do you know what that means? It means its less than 4 months until Christmas! OMG.

Okay. So moving on! This month sees us (hopefully) wrapping up the Camp Kink event! Who doesn’t love an abundance of young adults exploring their sexuality without restraint? Its been a hell of a fun ride (haha get it?) so far! Can’t wait to see what the grapevine makes of it when words gets out … haha!

On a more serious note, this month will see us engaging in the Istan Wildfires! This event is a free for all! Feel free to have your characters interact with the event in any way you feel is suitable! There is a lot of room here for personal dramas, trouble making, hero worshiping, etcetera! We really want to see how characters interact with, and dictate, the outcome of the event!

Those of you who are intersted, please take part in a discussion about the Plot for opening up the Healer Hall! You can find it [here].

June 2018

Welcome to the new month! Like always, I'm slack in getting the update up and running, but here it is! This month we have the event 'Summer Fling' - [Link] - which is turning out to be all kinds of entertaining already! Remember, it doesn't have to include smut! It could be an innocent date with some - *gasp* - hand holding!

This month also saw Gold Bedith of Mulrissa take to the skies! She was won by young Syrendryth of T'ryn! Congrats, and may your Hatching be less dramatic than the last one! The Hatching will take place in October so you have a lot of time to get Candidates created, approved, and posting up a storm!

In the meantime, gold Okalinath of Kahleena has taken to the skies! You can find her Flight thread taking place on the 4th, here Currently, there is no planned winner, so be sure to throw your bronzes and browns her way! They do not need to be natives to Telgar Weyr to participate!

Documents are still being written and we've put together a FAQs page, though its likely to recieve a lot of adjustments as we come across things. The current goal is to have everything set up and ready by July, but we'll see how well we go at that. And by we, I mean ThistleProse. lol.

April 2017

The layout is almost complete, but there is still a lot of work to be done; documents are being written up and can be found in the Site Map menu opion. Players can begin to move their characters' information to their Account Profiles, but be aware some changes may still be made and/or added.
If you find any bugs or issues, plese repot them here, and we will do our best to fix them in a timely manner.

Darumem regarded the large hold before him as thoughts of running a major hold ran through his head. He knew he could do a fine job of it but of course too many Telgarian heirs separated him from any chance of claiming the position of Lord Holder of Telgar Hold. Too many of the blood stretching ahead of him, so unless he started a bloodbath Darumem knew he had no chance at all.

Waste of mental energy these thoughts and Darumem wasn't big on wasting anything. Grieving for his lost Suhesa was done and over with and he had his future to consider now. Not only his future but also the future of the pack of daughters he had sired off of Suhesa. She gave him only one son who died, his fool of a Nanny failed to watch over him close enough and he ended up falling down the stairs. Darumem suspected the whore spawn pushed his Heir down the stairs, if it wasn't for Suhesa warning him of the trouble it would cause, he would have killed the old woman. Instead he  beat the nanny, discharged her from his service and exiled her from his hold.

Suhesa then gave him another daughter and ended up dying of some illness barely six months later. It was quite inconvenient and even worse, he actually loved his wife so it did hurt to lose her. Darumem had yet to touch another woman since then but it was time enough he found himself a new one. He would be damned to have his hard work end up in the hands of one of his brothers or nephews.

He also had to start considering wives for his daughters...Daresa was sixteen turns now, more than old enough to be espoused. He had two other daughters coming close to being of age too, Memhesa and Hesame. With this in mind, Darumem traveled to Telgar Hold. He will beginning the process of finding a suitable spouse for his eldest daughter foremost then place feelers for his other children. He will also keep an eye out for any attractive young women with good birthing hips to claim as his own.

It was a fine day and as much as he rather be tending to the business of his Minor Hold, Darumem was strolling through the public gardens. He had already sent word to the Lord Holder of Telgar indicating he was present and awaited his pleasure. There were always a good chance of a endweek Gather or feast in the main Hold he could attend. For now he allowed himself a rare moment of inactivity by strolling about the public gardens in the warm afternoon sun, eyes keenly searching for anybody of note.

What on earth had possessed her to bring her brothers to this place? If she and any sort of clue that they were going to use it as a Play area instead of being the well-behaved boys she knew they were capable of being, she would have taken them somewhere else. Anywhere else!

Kira sighed. She had been darting in and out of the hedges and taller stands of flowers and trees, following a trail of giggles and half-glimpses of disappearing boys that were, quite frankly, too old for this sort of mischief.

Then again, one was never exactly too old for playing pranks on family, were they? Kira couldn't help the small smile that appeared on her face at that thought. No, not really.

But that meant that she was stuck looking for two rambunctious pre-teens in a decently large area. They avoided the low-cut grasses and ground cover, and that was making her job all the more tiresome. Kimora would have yelled at her for incompetence, had she been there. Kira was grateful she s wasn't.

With that thought, she heard a giggle coming from somewhere close, narrowing down the place, she pasted a triumphant grin on her face. Oh, they would get caught, and then they would pay! Kira snuck over, waiting for the next body to pop around, sure that it would be her brothers. At first sight she leapt, smacking into a body.

A body that could not have in any way been her brothers. Kira gasped in horror and paled, backing up immediately. "I'm s-s-so sorry!" She said, paling as she took in the look of the man's clothing, the way he held himself. "Pl-leas-se, let m-me make it up t-to y-you!" She didn't know what else to say at this point. Smacking into a Holder! Oh, her sister would have her head for this!

As he plotted the many ways he could earn greater favor with the Lord of Telgar Hold, perhaps even find a husband for one of his daughters from out of the Lord Holder's many bastards. It would put the blood into his grandchildren and bring them a little higher up the 'food chain'.

As he contemplated he heard the sound of children laughing and giggling. Being a public garden and a beautiful day to be out it wasn't surprising the local mothers will be out with their children.

The path was reaching a fork and the high hedges in this section proved an effective blind spot to hide somebody. Thus when he was just about to round the corner he was totally caught off guard by the body jumping out at him.

If it wasn't for the fact he was caught off guard, Darumem may have reacted far more violently. Instead the shock gave the young woman a chance back away from him before he finaly reacted.

"What do you think you are doing?" He demanded. Darumem didn't shout but his voice was so full of thick authority it was almost a growl. As his small eyes narrowed he took in the woman before him. In the back of his mind he guessed she was not much older than his oldest daughter. He took in her clothing and guessed she was just some resident's daughter or wife. Beautiful. Well proportioned and a few other thoughts came to mind as she stammered apologies and offered to do anything to make it up to him.

"Explain why you are jumping at people?" He decided that would be the first step in making things up to him. Fortunately his surprise at being so caught off guard had faded and his voice was less demanding but more his normal firm tones when dealing with those he perceived to be beneath him.

The man didn't shout, but his demand was ma in such a voice that Kira was rooted to the spot with eyes wide, afraid that if she didn't obey him he would hit her or some such. His face was terribly expressive and had that written on it. The second question only eased her nerves a little. Even if he was willing to forgive her, if word of this got back to her sister, Kira knew how painful the punishment for being such a clumsy dimglows would be.

"I...I... Br-rought my brothers-s-s here, and they-y've disapp-peared on me. I thought they-y were hiding and com-Ming around the hedge... I didn't mean to jum-m-mp out at y-you." Her fingers laced together tightly. It was a terrible offense to have this happen, and Kira didn't know how he would punish her in turn. She had answered him, certainly, but that couldn't be the only thing he would want of her as apology.

Her siblings, seeing the trouble she was in, came forward and rallied together for her... Behind her back. Kira could feel them clinging to the back of her dress as they looked up at the older Holder. "It's true, sir, we were hiding and playing and she was just trying to catch us," the older me piped up. Kira was grateful for it, reaching back to grasp his hand.

But even with her siblings's support, Holders weren't necessarily kind, and that made Kira keep alert and ready for a blow from him. If she were more unlucky he might demand a few lashes. Kira hoped that he was more lenient than that, not wanting to go back to her family so ashamed. Not wanting it in front of her brothers. But regardless of his worried or afraid she was, she stood there stiffly, ready for whatever punishment he had in mind.

Darumem listened to the girl explain why she had jumped her, her stutter difficult to decipher to the point he was getting irritated. Was the girl so terrified she couldn't speak? It didn't occur to him she stuttered due to a defect other than being scared.

By the time she finished talking and a few seconds of silence fell between them, Darumem was able to work through her stuttered words to learn what she said. Then he noticed the two boys who appeared from where they were hiding to cling to her skirts. His small eyes darted to the oldest boy's face as he talked before taking in the other boy. Sister, with two brothers. He filed that information in the back of his mind.

Suddenly he smiled, his whole face flowing into the expression. "Well, it isn't the first time I heard of overly excited children causing things to get out of hand and the public garden is a fine place to play hide and go seek."

"What's your name, girl?" He asked, the smile vanishing as fast as it appeared.

In the silence that fell, Kira could only hear her heart pounding. She had no clue what would happen now. And her stutter... Had that only made things worse? Would he grow frustrated by it and simply dismiss them? The latter would be a small blessing, but Kira didn't know if that had a chance of happening.

But then he smiled, and her shoulders relaxed a bit. He couldn't be that angry, not if his words were any indication. She gave him a small smile back. But then the look fell from his face once more, and the smile fell from hers. "Kira." Finally, a word without her stutter hampering it. She also gave him a small curtsy in addition to it, to properly pay him her respects. Kira's gentle hand on her brother's shoulders meant that they also bowed to the mañana gave him their names.

But after that, Kira didn't want to say anything more. He was a Holder, she merely a stuttering drudge. Her older brother stepped forward. "Thank you for being so understanding, Sir. We won't cause anymore trouble like this today. If that's all, then we will escort our sister home." The boy was used to taking over in situations like this, aware of how Kira's speech issue would be seen by others. Besides, it didn't seem like any great offense to the man, since he had seemed ready to forgive them.

Her smile did enchance her beauty, Darumem noticed. He continued to silently study her, the only acknowledgement he gave to acknowledge her answer to his last question was a slight nod. Kira, her name was Kira. He found it a pleasing name, Kee-rah. He will not forget it.

When the older of the two boys spoke so politely, Darumem smiled again, not as widely as before. "Well said, young man, well said. You will make a good little Holder if you marry right, I am certain."

"Kira I do hope you follow your brother's example and be more careful how you play. I am not an unreasonable man and there was no harm done. It isn't every day I have a beautiful woman jump out at me from behind a hedge." Darumem's hand moved before him in graceful movements as he talked in a more at ease manner. His eyes once more fell upon the older boy. "There is no need to end your enjoyment of the garden on this fine day. Unless it is time for you to return home."

Kira and her brothers were reliev that the man didn't seem too terribly angry at them. He acknowledged Kira's name with a nod, though he didn't offer his in return (not all that surprising, but still), and was polite in turn to Kira's brother. He have another small bow to formally acknowledge his words. He rather liked the praise he was given, it was nicer than what Kimora had to say to him!

Kira also smiled at him, brushing her hand over his hair to agree with the Holder. He had done well. Her eyes then lifted up to the Holder's as he continued to speak. A light blush tinted her cheeks, though it was both one of embarassment and irritation. She had been careful right up until the decision to ambush her brothers! But Kira didn't say a word, merely inclined her head to agree with his reprimand. She chose to ignore his words about being a beautiful lady. Simple flattery, she was sure.

For a moment when he spoke to her brothers, there was a mental tug of war between who would win - them for getting someone else's approval of playing, or her for wanting to go somewhere it was more appropriate to roughhouse. They locked eyes... And her brothers won. With a small sigh, she acquiesced, a wry smile on her face. Both the boys grinned widely.

"No, sir, papa won't mind us bringing her home in a few hours!" The eldest said. "Thank you for being so kind and understanding!" With that the two darted off, leaving Kira alone with the holder.

And she was at a loss of what to do now. She looked back at him, then gave the man a bright grin. He was rather nice, far from what she had experienced most holders to be, and seemed rather decent when all was said and done. But Kira was also sure that she was intruding on his time here. Kira gave him a small curtsy and moved to excuse herself so that she could continue to peruse the garden herself.

Darumem chuckled at the boy's enthusiastic comment about their father not minding if Kira was brought home a few hours later. He understood boys far better than he did girls despite the fact he had four daughters. Once the boys ran off, Darumem focused his eyes completely on Kira.

"I seemed to have forgotten to introduce myself. I am Darumem, Lord of Litner Hold...under Telgar of course." For now, he thought silently. As much as he wanted Telgar Darumen knew he would never have a chance. Not unless he arranged for many deaths. Darumem was clever but knew it will take a few generations before his bloodline ruled Telgar.

He studied the woman briefly then decided to ask one more question before dismissing her. "What is your father's name? Answer that and then you may depart. I don't want your brothers worrying what's keeping you."

Kira nodded slightly when he introduced himself. She wasn't sure why he felt the need, but it was a nice gesture.but it also made her feel even more embarrassed - he s a Lord Holder! Not just a rich holder, like she had assumed. He was that and more. She gave him yet another curtsy. She was feeling uncomfortable under his scrutiny, but didn't want to show it by fidgeting or acting in a way that could be construed as rude.

She had already had too many bad incidents today.

His next question surprised her quite a bit. For a moment she paused, lips parted as she took in that he wanted her father's name. What would he want it for, exactly?

Taking a deep breath, Kira managed yet another smile. "Moran." Her shoulders slumped slightly in relief. Another word without a stutter! It made her grin all the more brightly.

With that, she curtsied once more and left as quickly as she could without being rude. Her brothers called out to her and she waved to them, glad to get away from that potential situation.

Darumem had to give the pretty young woman credit, she did curtsy the right amount and had been quick to apologize for her earlier error. She was an amusing distraction and he did have other things to tend to.

Why did he ask the name of her father? Darumem normally didn't bother asking that sort of information from faceless drudges. The name didn't mean anything to him either.

It was worth it for that smile The thought drifted across his mind. It was a thought that made him realize he was without a wife for too long. He had grown accustomed to somebody warming his bed at night. He missed Suhesa and had not been in a rush to find a new wife but the need for an heir was pressing. He could take this girl for his pleasure, or any drudge that caught his fancy. He didn't want to.

Darumem watched as she left to join her brothers and could see her relax the further she moved away from him. He shook his head, berating himself for standing there watching her leave like some boy seeing his lover returning home.

Turning his back on her he headed for the nearest path that lead out of the public garden. He no longer wanted to be out there in the sun enjoying the weather. A good workout was what he really needed. Or so he told himself.
