Ulliendis itched at his arm yet again and wondered if stitches were supposed to be so itchy when numbweed was slathered over the area. Shit, what if he was allergic to numbweed? He knew it was possible if incredibly rare and figured that would be his luck. He’d ask Rhamnus about it later when he returned to the healer’s room since he was currently on a much needed break.

When Rhamnus sent the invitation to come lend a hand and learn a bit more, Ulliendis figured he didn’t have much else to do beyond his chores. Besides, he hadn’t been to Benden Weyr—or any other Weyr—yet and with a Hatching coming up soon, he figured it would be helpful to know his way around a bit first in case he Impressed. Telling the Candidate Master that a healer required his assistance made the approval process even easier and Ulliendis found himself granted a handful of days to assist.

He had arrived two days earlier and was now halfway through his visit. Rhamnus kept him busy with ‘acquiring’ needed items that left Ulliendis rolling his eyes but he appreciated the chance to keep his skills up to snuff. When he wasn’t roaming around, he was learning more about poisons and even watched as Rhamnus would patch up a resident here and there suffering from normal every day injuries. And when he wasn’t doing either of those, he was free to wander in the evenings.

All well and good, but Ulliendis only knew Rhamnus and a few Candidates that had been at Fort’s last Hatchings. Well, he had started making new friends the previous evenings but he didn’t see any of those around either and Ulliendis was now left with the terrible task of either drinking alone, dragging Rhamnus away from whatever was occupying his time, or dragging someone else into drinking and conversing.

His gaze roamed around the Dining Cavern, sussing out the potential victim out of those loitering after dinner. He knew groups would start forming for socializing and he wanted to get into one of those groups before they settled in too much and he was seen as crashing. But then he saw the perfect target. A man sitting alone and seemed to be people-watching as well. A man after his own heart. As much as Ulliendis enjoyed being the centre of attention, he also loved watching others and learning things about them. He had a feeling this man would know some fun tidbits about the residents of the Weyr and sauntered on over.

“You look like a man that would appreciate my company, the wine I swiped from my host, and gossiping about other people,” Ulliendis stated as he invited himself to the seat beside the man---bluerider from the knots on his shoulder—so they could share the same view. “Tell me I’m wrong and I’ll call you a handsome liar and still stick around to be proven right. I didn’t bring glasses so we will also be utterly uncouth together as we drink from the bottle.”

I still think the timing is off. Oh, I agree, the whole thing feels off. That and only the Weyrwoman was attacked this time, normally the killer- Or killers. or killers, B'ruk agreed, went after more than one person at a time. That and these more recent attacks seem a bit more... aggressive. I wonder if something has happened. The bluerider took an idle nibble of a piece of bread as he kept watching the other people in the dining hall. The murders and attacks had been on a lot of minds lately, and with the shiny golden population taking a significant hit some of the dragonriders he knew were starting to get a bit antsy. It would certainly make for a rather bleak future if the golds kept dying, especially when thread came. At least they were still having clutches. Though what if- Perhaps, you could focus on more positive things for the moment? I'm trying to converse with a rather lovely green and you are killing the mood a bit.

Despite the rather dark route his thoughts were meandering, his face was rather pleasantly neutral, perhaps even a little curiously friendly at best. That was broken for a moment by a soft amused huff and smirk as B'ruk took another bite. Sorry, sorry. You have fun. He turned his attention back to the dining hall, wondering if there was anything to do to try and liven up the overall mood. Maybe some sort of party, though it was certainly hard to justify one given the current string of events. Though the Weyrwoman was alive and there was a gold egg on the sands, so there was that.

He wasn't especially surprised when someone joined him at the table, though he was surprised to see it was a face he didn't recognize. B'ruk smiled at the compliment and took a moment to eye the young man who'd joined him. "I think I could very well appreciate your company, and in a variety of ways at that." He slid over his plate of bread, cheese, and fruits to share as well. "And I don't mind sharing a bottle, the kitchen drudges would probably appreciate the efficiency of fewer glasses to clean. I'm B'ruk of Blue Valeth, what's your name and what brings you here?"

"I'm Ulliendis, Harper-turned-Candidate although I'm visiting from Fort Weyr at the moment. Healer Rhamnus appreciates my skills and sought to steal me for a few days. I, in return, stole this bottle of wine." Ulliendis flashed B'ruk a bright smile before taking a swig of the wine and declaring it drinkable with an appreciative nod. You couldn't always go off of a label from what a few vintner friends had said. Unfortunately he wasn't skilled in remembering which years were supposed to be the best and which ones were to be avoided because of bad crops or some such thing. He relied on his taste buds and they said this bottle would do for making new friends.

The bottle was slid over for the bluerider to try while Ulliendis started in on the fruit B'ruk was kind enough to share. He wasn't starving but little nibbles were always enjoyable; his philosophy for most things. "So tell me, B'ruk of blue Valeth, is Benden Weyr truly so boring that the only fun to be had is in people-watching? Not that I'm knocking it but you seem like the sort to be more involved with said people than on the sidelines."

He paused and then laughed with a wave of his hand to himself. "I suppose that's what people say of me as well. I know why I do it but I think with you, you're waiting to see if anyone interesting comes to you. A clearly successful tactic,” Ulliendis grinned and waved to himself again.

B'ruk eagerly snatched up the bottle and eyed the label, smiling and nodding in approval as he recognized the vintage, one that a fancy Lady who enjoyed his company on occasion had a fondness for. He took a sip long enough to savor without being too greedy before setting the bottle back down between them. "Well I am glad that one theft led to another that I could enjoy. He's a prickly man sometimes, but if you can get past that you can get into some more fun parts as well."

He knew well enough that the healer was willing to indulge in a bit of fun on the side (or on the exam table even), but he seemed a bit high strung to B'ruk. Always grumpy and angry about something, and always especially irritable with the shiny hides. The bluerider enjoyed a bit more light hearted company himself, so he tended to just avoid the man in general.

The Harper-Candidate's question made him pause and tilt his head as he considered. "Eh, Benden has its moments, but lately the mood has been a bit... well it's been less lively than normal what with the current goings on. Normally there are some fun little card groups to break into, the occasional party in the lower caverns to crash. I like to visit the Holds when I can, I find them to be quite entertaining. And full of people who just need someone to help them learn to let loose a little."

B'ruk took another sip of the wine and grinned before adding, "And I enjoy watching people. They're rather interesting, always up to something, guessing which ones are up to no good, who's hiding what, it's great fun. You can learn a lot if you just watch someone. Or follow them."

Ulliendis raised a brow at B’ruk’s choice of words for Rhamnus. He honestly didn’t find the Healer all that prickly but that have been because they had certain interests in common that made each other more useful. He also wasn’t sure about the more fun bits since neither of them had made any real advancements. Sure, there was some fun flirting but Ulliendis flirted with anyone with a pulse. But that didn’t mean he did more than that. Sex simply wasn’t needed as a motivator for whatever their arrangement was.

“Other than people-watching, helping others learn to let loose is one of my favourite things to do.” Rhamnus wasn’t one of those people. That man had his shit in order but there were so many others that were in need! Ulliendis gave B’ruk another appraising glance and still felt his initial response was correct. The bluerider knew how to have all sorts of fun and… did he say follow them?

“Oh, you naughty boy. You like to see where the flirting brings people, eh? I should have pegged you for being a voyeur in all senses of the word. Should I keep you in mind in case I find a playmate for later tonight?” He was grinning as he teased B’ruk but the offer wasn’t entirely made in jest. He’d be find with the bluerider in his bed or watching him with another. He wasn’t about to tell someone how to get their rocks off!

“Unless you have other reasons for following people? Although the offer still stands either way.”

B'ruk couldn't help but let out a soft snorting chuckle as his new friend admitted to the similar hobbies. "Some people really have a lot to learn, and getting them all loosened up is just satisfying you know?" And if he really opened their eyes it usually meant a lot more fun afterwards. Though sometimes he'd done a bit too well and ended up having to flee a jealous lover or husband or fiance or some other what have you. That was fine, he hadn't been caught yet and Valeth had his back most of the time.

"Heh, I don't know if I'm as much a voyeur as I am nosy," he laughed as he answered the accusation. Though he supposed, thinking on it a bit more, that it wasn't exactly inaccurate. If things started to get hot and heavy while he was already being snoopy, why not enjoy the show? He eyed Ulliendis a moment and gave him a wink as he added, "I guess I do still enjoy watching when I happen to catch a show, so whether you want me there or not is up to you. I think I still prefer participating to just watching."

Another little nibble on fruit, and another sip of wine as B'ruk took a look around the dining hall to make sure no one else was being as snoopy as he normally was. He turned his attention back to the candidate, leaning in a bit closer as he lowered his voice. "Plenty of reasons to follow people. Sometimes there's nosy people who aren't as sneaky who enjoy hearing gossip and are willing to pay for it one way or another. And sometimes there are people who ask for a pair of eyes to watch someone discreetly to see what they're up to, who they talk to, things like that."

“Ah, so you prefer getting a participation award. Noted,” Ulliendis grinned as he popped another piece of fruit in his mouth. B’ruk was an interesting fellow and they already had so much in common. He had chosen his target for the night wisely and so far with no regrets. As if he was one to truly have regrets. As it was, Ulliendis already knew he was going home with the bluerider for the night, though it was hard to say if it would be before or after the wine was finished.

To help that along, he had another drink as he contemplated the confession. B’ruk was full of little surprises and was more than a pretty face. He could, and did, appreciate that. Ulliendis did wonder who exactly was paying the man to sneak around or share what he learned. He had heard that D’hys had his fingers in everything and a lot of it was backed by Weyrleader R’nya so was he one of the ones B’ruk reported to? It made sense to need eyes in other Weyrs since not even a dragonrider could be in multiple places at once. “I would love to hear more about your adventures in a more private setting if you prefer.” With his overt ways, it seemed more likely they would leave before the wine was finished. Of course the wine would travel with them. No sense in wasting a perfectly good stolen gift!

“We could swap notes on methods for loosening people up while we’re at it.” He was a shameless flirt, what could he say? Sometimes he had a bit more restraint but what else was there to do when B’ruk even confessed not much was happening.

B'ruk laughed, nodding at the harper candidate's assessment. Though he supposed really, participation was its own reward when it came to that sort of fun. He took a moment to lean back and eye Ulliendis, his grin broadening a bit as he took the time to get a better look at the young man. Definitely no complaints there, the blonde was quite easy on the eyes in a way that invited further investigation. And B'ruk did love to investigate things like that a bit more thoroughly.

"A private setting? I that can be arranged." He imagined that Ulliendis was the nosy sort; he had that look about him, the keen eye, the curiosity. Maybe B'ruk would keep him in mind next time he had a chat with D'hys. That was a future problem though, he still had to see how the rest of this night was going to go. Though so far, he had a pretty optimistic outlook.

He reached for the bottle of wine, taking another sip of it before giving his eyebrows a small bounce. "I think I have some notes written down in my weyr, I think I could be convinced to share them with you. Let's take the rest of this wine and head that way."

With a lazy swing of his leg over the bench, B'ruk got up and stretched before passing the wine back. He draped an arm across the candidate's shoulders as he began to steer them out of the dining hall and towards his weyr. "Play your cards right and I'm sure I can introduce you to a few of my more entertaining friends as well."
