Paperwork. Some evil wherry-brain must have invented it as a form of torture because it never seemed to end. Once he finished something, more paper cropped up needing to be looked at. To escape the little room that was his office, Ma'ju had wandered into the dining hall with work he had to look through -- most of which consisted of a writing assignment he had given -- and had barely moved from his corner.
Yensuth had quickly grown bored with his rider's antics and was currently attempting to convince Krekalyth she was really a small Gold with the wrong hide color. It wasn't working, but it certainly provided Ma'ju with some entertainment when P'hasi's vulpin arrived with a message that, while less than polite, got the point across that the Greenrider did not appreciate Yensuth's antics.
Yen, leave Krekalyth and P'hasi alone. Your stupidity overwhelms them. The indignation that emanated from his dragon brought forth a smile that grew when the Mosaic replied quickly. Be on your guard. Stupidity is highly contagious. Now where was I... He trailed off, distracted by Ma'ju's interruption and likely some fire-lizards passing by. You were telling P'hasi that An'iah likes to stare at his bum. Oh, Faranth, P'hasi was going to kill him, but at least it was worth it.
When he did not receive a response from either party, Ma'ju went back to eating his food and reading the page he held in his hand. Blasted candidate had barely legible handwriting which required some serious squinting to read. "What idiot wrote--" The name 'Rhirrin' scrawled in the upper left corner answered his unfinished question. That little creature had quite the personality and was as friendly as a Darkness.
As he turned to reach for a pitcher of klah, Ma'ju caught sight of Tayuya and boy, did she look like she'd woken up on the wrong side of the furs. Either way, she was a fellow Mosaicrider and they had to stick together. So, his obnoxious shout of 'TAAAAAA-YUUUUU-YAAAAA!! OVER HERE!' was totally out of the goodness of his heart. Totally.
