Whistle While You Work [Peorray]
« on: 09 Jul 2013 at 07:00 PM »
Chores were a constant in a weyr. Casa had told herself this over and over and over, and knew it would never change. It never much bothered her; after all, a busy weyr was a happy weyr, or at least meant you couldn't get in trouble. However, when you have something as large as the Gather Square to could be complicated. And last night there had been another storm, which resulted in tree branches and general debris scattered all over. What was worse, it was still lightly sprinkling, making everything muddy and wet.

As she got on her better pair of boots and pulled a second tunic over her head, she took comfort in the fact that one of the more reasonable people was going to be helping too. When she asked who else had been assigned to helping to remove the mess, she had been told the current crew was coming off-duty, and that Peorray would likely be helping. She didn't know the woman all that well, but she had a wonderful reputation, and was a hard worker on just about anything that got given to her. Casa wasn't really well known to the woman, but she did look up to her for the amount of effort she dedicated to the Weyr, especially being one of the folks from up North.

After finally getting everything layered and tied on, she began to stump outside, downing the last of her morning klah and dipping out into the misty weather. The clouds above swirled in great masses of grey; it looked like it was bound to rain on and off for most of the day. Hopefully they would be able to make a good dent in the mess out there before it got too much muddier. And at the end of the day, she could always look forward to the baths. There was nothing better than baths after a day of labor and rain.

It was a miserable day. Peorray wasn't looking forward to getting out there in the wet to clean up debris, but the work wasn't going to go away just by thinking about it. And she'd worked in worse weather. A little drizzle was nothing compared to searching for the family's prize ram in a Crom summer storm.

She dressed for work and headed out to the Gather Square. Hopefully the first crew had made some progress, or at least handled the biggest chunks of debris. It was a bit hard to tell, though, with the mist fuzzing the view. With any luck, her cleaning partner would wouldn't be a slacker and they could get this done and get back in the dry and warm. Just because she could take the weather didn't mean she wanted to.

Peorray turned slightly as a noise got her attention, smiling slightly in greeting as the girl got closer. "I'd say 'good morning', but I hate to lie." She indicated the rain around them with a tilt of her head. "I thought maybe we could start at the north end and work out way down- sweep the smaller branches and things into piles and bag them up." It was much too wet to burn anything.

[Spoiler=OOC] Sorry I forgot about this. :(

Casa shivered as she walked through the misty drizzle all around her. As she approached the Gather Square, a humanoid shape materialized out of the ick. Blinking, she saw it was Peorray. The woman was one of the more solid candidates around the weyr, and she had a son who was sweet as anything. She definitely was more inclined to like Peorray. She wasn't girly, whiny, or immature...she was instead very level headed and a hard worker. The Weyr would be lucky to have her as a rider.

Shaking her thoughts off, she trotted up to the women, rubbing her hands together to keep warm. Even being as muscular and rangy as she was, she still got cold pretty easily. When Peorray suggested starting at the north corner, she naturally trotted after the woman, letting her take the lead as they made their way up towards the corner. As they approached, it seemed that the first crew had done some work, but not nearly as much as she had hoped.

She sighed softly, glancing around and beginning to haul some of the bigger pieces away to the side. "Would you like to do the bag holding or the gathering? Or we can take turns?" With odd shaped pieces of debris, it would definitely be easier to have one person stabilize their bag while the other dumped or loaded it. As she waited for an answer, she assumed her normal busy pace, gathering up pieces and trash into neat little piles. She tried to be as industrious as possible, not wanting to keep herself or Peorray out in this awful weather any longer than necessary.
