Despite the dark and looming clouds out to sea that promised a thunderstorm this afternoon, the warm humidity and the bright sunshine that washed over the Court this morning had spurred Tem on to make the most of the day. There was so much of the territory he'd yet to explore, but he'd found a place he wanted to show Lena. It had dampened his mood slightly when he'd realised that she couldn't see the beauty of the beach, the twinkling of the gems in the sand. It would be beautiful with the sun splashing against the waves making that twinkle as well. He knew she couldn't see it, but he would take her there and describe it to her, in detail. Keeping his motives to himself and answering her questions with one a small chuckle or cryptic 'you'll see', he gathered together various items that would make their trip to the beach more comfortable.

When he was ready, he eagerly tugged Lena from the house, a blanket tucked under one arm and his backpack full of dried meat and berries that he'd found around the house. He was sure they were safe, or else Lena probably would have told him when he picked them. He knew she couldn't see, but he'd learnt fairly quickly that her other senses made up for it and he was fairly certain she knew what they were doing. They walked in companionable quiet, his usual nuance of helping her over the various obstacle in their path. Feeling more at ease and calm with himself than he had in a while, Tem couldn't help but keep at least one part of himself touching her; a hand on her elbow or arm or small of her back, the warmth he felt through his fingers causing an easy smile on his lips.

As the salty sea air hit his nose he felt an irresistible grin tug at his lips. I wish you could see this place Lennie, its glittering. He murmured as he released her for a moment. Stepping back he unfurled the blanket with a flourish, laying it down on the ground and pushing it with his paws so that the tugging wind didn't blow it away. Come and sit down, we can have a picnic. He grinned, reaching across to try and capture her hand and tug her down so that he could lay back in her lap and describe the scene to her as he wished.

;__; i have no words to express how sorry i am AND ILY 5EVER 2!!

As vague as the boy was being, Lena was enjoying herself. While there was no hearty bickering that usually filled the silence that surrounded them now, it was a peaceful sort of quiet, a sort of refreshing change of pace. The quiet, and Tem's constant touch, also gave her the opportunity to soak up the sun without much distraction, though occasionally Temeraire would break her concentration to advise her over some obstacle. Sometimes she would feel the same old chagrin, but she trusted that the Stormbringer wasn't doing so because he thought she was helpless, and the almost reflexive emotion was easily pushed away. Besides, she was too busy enjoying the cloudless day to fuss over the usual stuff.

She had brought her blindfold along in case her brought her someplace especially bright to eat -- she was sure they were going someplace to eat, the scent of food coming from his bag obvious. She smelled meat and berries, and she felt her stomach clenched in anticipation for the meal; Lena, admittedly, was easily swayed by the food, and she followed the boy without much compliant that he was being dodgy with their destination. The smell of salt that lingered all around the Court was starting to thicken, and she began to see they were approaching a beach.

"Is it?" she asked with a toothy smile, almost as if she was prompting him to continue his description as he set up the blanket he had toted along with them. Lena perked her ears as he mentioned a picnic, and as she felt his hand, she allowed herself to be guided to the ground and she sat herself down, crossing her legs as he laid in her lap. "I never went on a picnic before, you know." With one arm propping behind her and the other resting on a knee, she asked him, "How does the sky look today? See any clouds?" She hadn't felt the shade of any, but that didn't meant they weren't there.

As he'd suspected, the dark girl hadn't put up much of a fuss when he'd insisted she come along without telling her where. It displayed an extraordinary trust in him that he briefly felt guilt about. He knew he'd been a horrible friend to her and he sought now to try and patch things up. A nice picnic would be just the treat to try and give them some happier memories when they'd only had dark ones in the recent past. His hand on her arm or her back was comforting to him, the irresistible pull to be near her satisfied for the moment. It didn't matter that they were teetering on the edge of not really knowing what they were to each other, such a strange and delicate balance that was tipped one way or the other far too many times.

They arrived and the female seemed to encourage him to describe it even more. With the smile in his voice obvious, he took a look around. He was about to inform her of the bright blue waves crashing against the shore, the pieces of sea glass hidden beneath the sand and just poking through, when she mused aloud that she'd never been on a picnic before. Never? You're kidding, picnic's are awesome! He supplied, genuine shock in his voice that she hadn't done this before. Hadn't her mother ever taken her out with a little food and a blanket to somewhere nice? Then she questioned the sky and he settled his head back into her lap, more than comfortable despite the rather intimate pose the pair now lay in.

His own bright blues searched the clouds to try and find a cloud, smiling briefly when he found one. As if unconsciously he lifted his arm back over his shoulder, fingertips touching the top of her right thigh and dark fingers embedding into the similarly dark fur there. I can see a single wispy cloud, all on its lonesome out to sea. You reckon clouds get lonely when there's just one of them? He questioned, enjoying the peaceful atmosphere that surrounded them in that moment of tranquillity.

"Well, I guess I'll just have to find out how awesome they're supposed to be," she said with a light, toothy grin, finding the surprise that colored his tone to be rather funny. She didn't think picnics were a big deal, but she wondered if they meant more to Temeraire than she would have given thought. The Rhiannon didn't look too much into it, though, and simply tried to relax as the boy settled down again in her lap. Lena was particular about personal space, sometimes she had no care for it like then, and felt comfortable with their closeness; feeling him breath and rumble whenever he talked was another way of seeing beyond just listening to him at a small distance.

She blinked as she felt his fingers brush along her leg, but she again thought nothing of it. "Maybe," she answered as he asked if clouds got lonely, mostly humoring the idea than believing it, "But the cloud got the sun and the birds and the stars at night, so it's not really alone. Not the same as other clouds, though, I guess." It was strange to think how a cloud of all things could get lonely, but who was she to judge? "Maybe it won't be alone for long," Lena mused out loud, and added, "What else do you see?"

Her optimism was catching and as she replied, he returned her toothy grin. When times were good, they were really good and Teme was reminded of the carefree and cheerful female that was his best friend. It just seemed that when he messed up, he really messed up and Lena could certainly turn into a nightmare. He heaved a satisfied sigh as he settled back onto her lap, his shortly cropped hair pressed against her thighs. You will, don't worry. He replied with confidence, an aura of peace settling over him. They hadn't been like this in a while, just enjoying the others company without bad words or tension between them. It made him feel almost normal again. His philosophical question was met with an equal serious answer, as if it wasn't unusual to consider the loneliness of the clouds.

Well, its definitely got the sun for company today. He teased, a snigger shaking his body briefly. Though the day had started out foggy as always, the blue sky was clear and the sun shone easily down on them. He glanced up as she asked what else he could see and a wicked smile lit up his lips. Lifting a hand he awkwardly brushed his fingers against her chin before responding. I can see a beautiful girl, sat on the beach, looking wind swept and besotted. He chuckled, hands dropping back down as he reached for the sack of food he'd bought with him. Want some berries? He asked, hands reaching blindly to scoop up some mixed berries that he'd collected earlier.
