Sometimes you woke up in the middle of the night. It sucked, but it was a fact of life. Soleil laid there in her cot, mentally throwing ever curse she knew at the damnable heat, and stared at the cavern ceiling. She hadn't yet been at Sirocco long enough to grow used to the temperature of the place during the day. At night the temperatures usually dropped, but not that night. Perhaps it was because they were so close to the very dry season.

Perhaps it was just because the sharding place hated her and wanted to make her suffer.

Soleil suffered in silence though, not moving or speaking or doing anything that might alert her new cotmates to the fact that she was awake. She was good at stillness, at holding everything in, even though all she wanted in that moment was to get up and move around. The feel of sweat pooling in the dips and hollows of her back made her feel like she needed to take ten baths, but still she didn't move.

Her stomach growled, long and low, and Soleil was on her feet instantly. She could raid the lower caverns for a midnight snack! No one else was up at this forsaken hour so she wouldn't be caught, candidate curfew be tossed between. There was no point in getting dressed - it would just make her sweat more, and her knee-length sleeping shift was plenty decent anyways. Her steps were swift and silent as she moved through the barracks.

It felt like it took all of two seconds to get to the lower caverns. Soleil was grateful for that. She stole through the cavern silently, intent on finding the sweet pastries that she knew had been served with dinner that night. Surely there were some left over? There had been what looked like a mountain of them after all, and nothing made a better late night snack than a sweet pastry. Now all she had to do was find them...

Working at a Weyr was startlingly different to living in the jungle – in Junglehold, he reminded himself, although the name felt strange to think still – and he wasn’t accustomed to cooking for people at all hours of the day and night. Anyone with a wher back home would either cook for themselves or cook for each other usually or with friends, or join in mealtimes with everyone else in the mornings or evenings; wher handlers here had opposite schedules to everyone else, it seemed, and they didn’t cook for themselves. They needed someone to cook for them. Tonight, Savellaren was one of those cooks.

Or, rather, he was. It was late enough now that it was between mealtimes for them, and everyone else had left. He’d offered to stay behind and finish cleaning up alone though, an offer the other cooks had only been too happy to accept. The better for him to get a little peace and quiet to clean and then have something to eat after – he’d set aside some fresh fruit from his room that Rheina had fetched for him and a few things from the last meal – and the better for them to go have a bath and clean up after spending hours in a hot kitchen when the temperatures outside were already – or still – plenty hot enough.

At least some things were more or less the same as they were back home. Savel was used to the heat and humidity after spending his whole life in the jungle, and he knew just how to deal with it once the cooking was done and there was no chance of dripping sweat into anything or getting hot splatters anywhere.

He’d peeled his shirt off and draped it over a chair off to the side while he cleaned up, and occasionally tossed Rheina what scraps he came across as he worked his way across the kitchens; bits of bread or meat mostly, but she’d found herself a bone from somewhere and had taken to gnawing at it on the floor in the middle of the room. Approaching footsteps drew their attention at the same time and both the gold firelizard and her bonded turned to regard the newcomer with quiet curiosity. “Oh, hello,” Savel said politely, pausing in the act of running a damp rag over the counter he was finishing cleaning. “I wasn’t expecting anyone else here for a while yet.”

The sharding shift was sticking to her skin, and since she was alone Soleil didn't hesitate to stop and peel the material gently away from her skin. First thing in the morning she was going to the bathing pools, and she wasn't coming out until right before the first lesson. There probably wasn't a person in the Weyr who would blame her for that - most of them were probably sweating their skins off at the moment too.

Ok, back to the pastries. Now where -

A polite voice sliced through the dim cavern and froze Soleil in her tracks. The candidate squared her shoulders and turned slowly, her eyes immediately landing on the speaker. How had she not noticed him? He was half undressed! It wasn't a bad sight, she admitted to herself, but being bare-chested and probably sweaty in the lower caverns - around the food - probably wasn't sanitary at all.

Her cold eyes swept over him, taking him in from the top of his head to the tips of his toes and back again. Finally she locked eyes with him, the blue of her irises looking positively glacial. This man wasn't some stranger. No, she recognized this man - Savellaren, she believed his name was - from the hatching feast. She recognized him rather well, especially shirtless. Savellaren had been the one that she had taken back to her cot the night of the hatching feast, the one that had helped her forget - for a bit, at least - that she had failed to Impress. It was tempting to dismiss him, to just turn and ignore him and go about her business, even though she recognized him. Especially because she recognized him.

He looked at home here in the kitchen, though, which meant he might know where her quarry was. The sooner she found the pastries the sooner she could go back to her room and devour them. Instead of dismissing him she decided to address him.

"I'm looking for the left over pastries from dessert," she said frostily. "Where are they?" Faranth, she'd shown how sweaty she was by pulling her shift away from her skin! If he'd seen... He had seen her in a worse state of undress, but that just made her momentary lack of composure seem almost intimate, and she was having a very hard time deciding if she was alright with that.

It was difficult to make out her features across the room in the glowlight, but even in the dark he'd be able to recognize her voice. Possibly especially in the dark. She didn't seem too inclined to reciprocate any kind of polite greeting though, instead asking after the leftover pastries, and Savel couldn't help but frown just a tad. Even a 'hello' in return would've been nice, but perhaps she was eager to get back to… wherever she'd just come from, with pastries in hand, and who was he to hold her up? It looked like she'd run all the way here too, what with how sweaty she obviously was -- or maybe that was just the heat? Probably just the heat, now that he thought about it, and it reminded him how much he wanted to take a bath once he'd finished cleaning up.

"There's a few, at least," he replied softly as he finished wiping down the counter and moved aside to the basin to wash his hands off. It wouldn't do to touch food - or in this case, a container of food - with dirty hands, after all. With that done he hummed a little to himself as he considered the shelves before pulling a basket down from one of them, checked the contents, then turned to hold it out for Soleil. "Yep, a fair few left. Y'can't take the basket but y'can take however many you want, we can always make more later." Fresher ones, too; pastries were alright after a time but were best when they were freshly made. On that note, actually… "It's probably best to finish them up sooner rather than later, anyway."

Rheina paused in her gnawing to peer up curiously at the pair of humans, and Savel could feel that curiosity radiating along their bond. He turned to smile and wrinkle his nose at the gold fondly. "None for you, you've had plenty of scraps already."

That soft way he spoke made Soleil suck in a breath and clench her teeth. The night they had spent together had been enjoyable, and she should be kinder to him. She should have at least given him a proper greeting instead of just snapping at him. Discomfort danced its way up her spine as she warred with herself over what to do. Kindness inevitably led to bonding with someone, kindness led to relationships and the mere idea of that made her teeth want to chatter with fear.

"Hello, Savellaren," she said finally. Maybe it was the heat of the evening or maybe it was the good memories she had of the man in front of her or maybe it was just the ice cracking for a second, but there was a thread of true warmth in the greeting that made her voice sound just a little husky, a little rough around the edges.

She moved forward carefully in the dim light of the cavern, stopping when she was in front of him. He had just turned to playfully scold his firelizard, and Soleil took a second to admire the little queen before she turned her eyes back to him. Instead of reaching for the pastries and leaving she found herself studying him, her eyes traveling from his profile to his bare chest and back again.

Hm.

"I can't take all of these," she said finally, a tiny bit more warmth threading through her voice. She couldn't possibly eat all of them. Unless... "Are you hungry too?" she asked, looking up at him through her lashes and arching a cool eyebrow in question.

Oh, so she wasn't too busy to say hello? Or perhaps she was busy but was going to take time to stop and talk a little anyway? Either way her greeting brought a small smile to his face.

The tones of her voice deepened that smile. Close as she was then he didn't need to be looking right at her to see the way she studied him, and when he turned his gaze back to her it was warmer, more curious. She couldn't take all of them, hm? Savel considered her - her and the way her shift clung to her bare skin - for a moment or two before he tilted his head towards her a little to look into the basket himself for the briefest of moments before his dark eyes flicked back up to her face. "I am hungry, yeah. I was going to eat as soon as I finished cleaning," which, luckily for the both of them, he'd just finished. "I'll eat with you, if y'like."

That smile on his face and the way it deepened as she spoke shouldn't have sent a jolt through her, but it did, and - because it was Soleil - it was ignored. She caught the way Savellaren looked at her just before he tilted his head to look in the basket. The ice in her eyes melted a little bit, and the corners of her mouth even quirked upwards in a slight smile.

Soleil had a very hard and fast rule about "encounters". She had slept with the man in front of her once on the night of the hatching, and her rule firmly stated that she wouldn't sleep with the same person twice. Or, at least, not so close together. Feelings were developed that way thanks to repeated exposure, and feelings were something Soleil did not want to catch.

But she had already darted through the Weyr in nothing but her shift. She had already been inviting about the pastries. She was actually holding what could have passed for a conversation with him. All of those things broke her rules - what did it matter if she did her best to break one more? Just this once, anyway.

"Since I can't take the basket another set of hands would be welcome," Soleil murmured, a genuine thread of amusement running through her voice. It was the sharding heat, she decided - it was melting her brain. Armed with that handy excuse she actually smiled a little bit more at him and reached a finger out, tapping the handle of the basket. "Where should we eat?"

Truthfully Savel hadn't been planning on eating any of the pastries at all, let alone the rest of them with someone, but plans were fluid things, almost never set in stone. They were subject to change, sometimes for the better and sometimes not, but in this case it was definitely for the better. Unquestionably so.

Especially when she smiled, even when those smiles were tiny or fleeting.

"I'll gladly offer you my hands wherever y'need them then," he replied easily, his soft voice gaining an almost silky quality to it as he picked up one or two pastries from it with one hand before tilting the basket towards her a little so she could take the few that remained. After a moment or two he added innocently, "To help carry the pastries, I mean." No he didn't.

"How kind," she said smoothly. Soleil took the remaining pastries and considered them. When she had come to the kitchens they had sounded like the best thing in the world, but now... well she may have stumbled on a much better way to pass a too-hot night than stuffing her face with pastries. Already she could think of quite a few places she wouldn't mind his hands being.

They had to play the game, though, that was how this was done.

"Perhaps you know of a place we can go?" They couldn't go back to the barracks, that was for certain. "I wouldn't want anyone seeing you use your hands on me - ah, for me - with the pastries." Her eyes warmed a bit more in a kind of smile even as her mouth stayed still.

How kind indeed. Once she took the pastries he half-turned to place the empty basket back on the shelf.

Somewhere to go though, hm? "I s'pose the bathing pools are out then... not that you'd really eat there anyway," he added after a moment. Not that he even wanted to eat anymore anyway, and definitely not pastries.... well. Not these kinds of pastries anyway, and it sounded like Soleil hungered for something else now too.

Hm.

"You could always save the pastries for later," he suggested after a moment, opting not to comment on her little slip-up. He couldn't tell if it had been accidental or intentional, but either way he liked it. He liked it a great deal, that and that she was already thinking of what his hands could or would do to her. "Then we could go somewhere else; my room's always an option... though I think a bath would be a nice way to cool down in this heat."

The bathing pools. What an interesting proposition. Soleil looked down at herself, considered the way the fabric of her shift clung to her skin. Using her thumb and pointer finger she delicately peeled the fabric away from her skin, laughing very, very softly as she did so. Getting out of the nightgown seemed like a wonderful idea, and jumping into water sounded even better than that.

"Now that you mention it I think you're right," she murmured, carefully placing the pastries she had taken back into the basket. "These can be eaten later. I think I'm in the mood for something a little more filling than pastry." Her eyes flashed at him for a moment and a more noticeable smile curled the corners of her mouth.

"We can go to the bathing pools. You can put those hands to use and help me wash my back," she said. For Soleil the tone was downright playful, when in reality she only sounded mildly amused. The pastries she had been so hungry for were long forgotten as she turned and started walking towards the door. Even in the practically buoyant mood she was currently in she wouldn't be following him anywhere.

Ah, yep, it definitely looked like she could do with a trip to the bathing pools too. His shirt had been much the same when he'd removed it earlier.

He set the pastries he'd taken back into the basket as well, to get them out of his hands and out of his thoughts. A small smile curved his lips, though it turned up at one corner a moment later. "That sounds like a wonderful idea," he murmured softly, tracing the curves of her smile with his eyes. She had a lovely smile -- when she actually smiled.

"I'd be glad to help you wash whatever you'd like," Savel added as he turned to follow after her, taking heart at the warmer tones her voice carried. While he still didn't know her too well, her reserved nature in front of others was perfectly obvious, just as obvious as how rarely she gave a warm expression or word. So when she did offer one or both of those… it was just nice to see and to hear.

Rheina blinked up at them sleepily as they passed on by, and with a warm thought Savel bid her off to bed. The tired queen complied with a sleepy cheep before she vanished from the room, bone chew-toy and all.

"Hm," was all Soleil said, though her tone was almost as warm as the night air around them. Even for her it was impossible to be cold in this kind of situation. Coldness had no place in seduction, after all. Soleil didn't say anything as they walked to the bathing pools. It was all she could do to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

This was dangerous. She knew that, and it wasn't because of the obvious reason that she would be breaking the candidate curfew. No, being any kind of open with Savellaren was dangerous. Planning on sleeping with him again was dangerous, and it made her want to turn tail and run. Better to nip this in the bud instead of letting it get to where they were going.

And yet her feet never strayed, not once, and that voice in her mind telling her to run was easily silenced. What was waiting for her in the barracks? Phin was curled up on her pillow but that was it.

At least if she sweated with Savellaren she'd be sweating for a purpose.

"Do you have a particular pool you like?" she asked, pausing at the entrance to the cavern to arch an eyebrow at him.

Following or leading was all the same in his opinion, so Savel happily followed after her, and although with his long strides he could've passed her easily, he made sure to keep pace with her. If she wanted to lead the way then he was happy to let her do so; he was happy to walk behind or beside her. Either afforded a lovely view so far as he was concerned.

In no time at all they reached the entrance to the bathing pools, and he glanced around the cavern to see if they had any company at the moment, but it didn't look like it. Perfect.

A pool he liked though? Savellaren hadn't been at Sirocco long enough to have a favorite bathing pool. Not that he could respond with that though, definitely not. "Of course I do," he said instead, his voice gaining a rather husky tinge as he gazed at her - her and her thin shift clinging to her skin, and the slim eyebrow she arched at him. "The pool I like most is whichever one you're in."

The line was simple and maybe the tiniest bit cliché, but it made Soleil's heart beat just a little faster anyway. She had been looking at him over her shoulder but now turned to face him fully. "Is that so?" she murmured, her tone warming a bit further as she looked at him. The look on his face... right at that moment it was all for her, and that was more than enough - it was perfect.

Any ice that had been remaining in her gaze melted away, the bright blue of her irises nearly blazing as she looked at him. It was easy to let go, because the letting go would be short-lived. There were no emotional attachments here, no real attempt at making them and no indication that Savellaren wanted something like that from her. This was something simple, something a little bit raw, and it suited Soleil just fine.

If her heart had sped up again just because she'd looked at him, well, then, that was her business and none of his.

This moment would have been a perfect one for a kiss. It was almost a shame, really, that she wasn't the kissing type. Instead, Soleil reached out and gently traced a finger along the edge of his collarbone. The light, feathery touch gave her the tactile outlet she was looking for without being overly intimate like a kiss would have been. Being able to find that middle ground so easily pleased her, and she offered Sav a slight, warm smile in response.

"I have one in mind," she murmured, her hand falling away as she turned and strode carefully towards the pool she'd had in mind. It was situated near the back of the cavern and in a corner, so they would have the most privacy a public space like that could afford. She glanced back at him, as if making sure he was still with her, and then she looked at the water. The meaning was clear.

Gentlemen first.
