Kelsa sat on the edge of her ledge, her knees pulled up to her chest. Her lovely green was curled up with her blue mate. Kelsa had been meaning to talk to S’ven but there hadn't been time lately. Now though she wondered just where they stood in their relationship.

It’s didn’t take the Blue Rider to find the woman and sit down next to her with a smile. “Hello.” He said softly taking off his gloves careful to not lose one over the edge.

She looked over her shoulder, a smile touching her full lips. “hey,” she softly. “how was your day?”

Clasping his hands and placing them over the back of his neck, the blue rider stretched out his spine muscles.“Better now I’ve seen you,” He said with a bigger grin as he caressed her bare arm looking her over. They had been on different drill patterns for a few sevendays but he always tried to find her if he could even if it was just for a moment.

Kelsa flushed but smiled. “well must say my day just got better,” she chuckled. Shards, she missed him when he was gone. He could always make her smile even on a bad day. “missed you.”

“Silly girl.” He breathed softly as he pulled his jacket off chucking it behind him as he moved closer to her. Something was certainly wrong with her and for the life of him, he couldn't figure out what it was.

She raised a brow. “and just why am I silly?” She asked, moving to lean against him. “I’m glad you're here.”

“Because you’ve seen me today. I yelled across the dining cavern good morning.” He reminded softly stroking her hair away from her neck in a tender gesture. “Was that not enough? I thought it was.” He rubbed the back of his own neck awkwardly. Did this sound as cliche and foolish as he imagined?

Kelsa sighed softly. “I heard you and it made my day. But it's not the same as actually getting to see you.” She didn't want to push him and lose him completely. She knew they hadn’t promised anything.

“Ah…” He sighed softly as he wrapped an arm around her. It was hard sometimes to try and keep her close but hold her at arm's length because he was still smarting from Ciy and the mess of that.

Kelsa leaned against his shoulder. “sorry I shouldn't be so melancholy, “ She said softly. She knew S’ven was still getting over Ciy’s betrayal.

“No… No. What is wrong?” The man wondered looking her up and down properly. Something was wrong but he didn’t know what.

The green rider nibbled on her bottom lip. “I, well…” she hesitated. Was it worth possibly losing him? Kelsa finally looked up at him, her eyes pleading. “is this always gonna be how we are?” She asked softly. “always just passing in the night, separate weyrs?”

S’ven looked at her and sighed. He wasn’t sure if that was always going to be the case but it was at the moment. “Kel… I…” He hesitated himself not sure what to say now that she had confronted him. As if something inside him understood in a single swoop, the rider realized this was a moment he would only get once, a chance he would never have again. “No… Not always. I just, the last person I let in, it didn’t end so well.”

Kelsa felt like she was sitting on pins and needles. Would he just wash his hands of her now? Maybe she shouldn't have said anything. Kelsa nearly fainted as he finally spoke. “Thank Faranth, I can be patient. I know you need time,” she said softly, reaching out to grab his hand. “I just needed to know that we at least had a future.”

“Of course. I just need time.” He was still hurting and sometimes he retreated in on himself to recover and think through his options. It sometimes hurt to know what had happened and how mixed up things had gotten.

Kelsa nodded, her chocolate eyes full of compassion. “I understand. I’m sorry I put you in that position. I shouldn’t have worried so much,” she whispered. It had been stupid on her part. It wasn’t like S’ven had ever given her any reason to doubt his feelings for her.

There was so much to say, for both of them. Right no he knew Kelsa wanted to insist that he open up, that he talk about it all. That would not be enough though, he would never talk about it freely because to talk about it was only opening a scabbed wound, a wound he felt that would never heal. “I just feel like it is something that will never ever heal sometimes.”

She shifted to lean against him. She never should have brought up his past. It had been stupid and now she had upset him. “I can only imagine, love,” she said softly, kissing his cheek. “I'm sorry I brought it up.”

“No.” The man said gently. It needed to be said, needed to be brought up as it was silly skating about the subject like they had been doing. It wasn’t worth it anymore, he needed to move and this woman was more than willing to be waiting for him. How had he gotten so lucky?

Kelsa looked up at him. She gained her fingers through his and squeezed. “no?” She asked softly, coaxing him to look at her. “So we're okay?” She asked, looking into his eyes. She loved the sharding man and would wait forever for him if necessary.

The man sighed and slowly moved to stand up, he took the smaller woman in his arms and held her close to him. “We are more than okay Kel.” He assured softly thinking it would be impossible to not be okay with this woman.

She giggled softly and snuggled against his chest. She looked up at him through long lashes. “I love you, S'ven. Anytime I have with you are moments I treasure.” She couldn't imagine where she would be without him.
