Yellow is the Best Color [Attn: Maever]

Post by Bella » September 9th, 2020, 11:45 pm

The Grey Tower's herb garden was in full bloom. Or, at least, some of it was in bloom...several parts didn't bloom at all, but they were still green and vibrant.

If Isla stopped to think it through, she would have to say that this was among her most favorite places to be in the Tower. It was naturally green and alive in the summer and spring, and plantweaving kept it vibrant in the autumn and winter. Snow never touched this place, thanks to the One Power, and it was constantly at the ready for harvesting so the Tower's infirmary never ran out of an important herb.

This was also a place that gave her much comfort, like in these cold days and nights while Beron was away in Saldaea. She missed him terribly, but she knew that he had to go. There were things needing attendance, and she planned to remain in the Tower until his return. Happily, she had this garden to visit, and her tasks in the infirmary to keep her busy. Admittedly, she had taken on a few extra shifts to cover the absence.

As she stepped through the door and into the gardens that day, she saw another. It only took her a moment to recognize who it was and she had to smile. "Good day, Maever Asha'man," she said with a warm smile.

Maever Donovan When it came to the gardens, Maever didn't spend as much time there as he would have liked. Things in the Infirmary tended to tick on over just nicely, and there wasn't anything he could do to change the overall scheme of how things ran, but the politicking that came with being the Head of the Ajah was always something leaned on the Illianer, and he had precious little patience - or tact - for it. He was under no misconception that he was, compared to the others, somewhat simple, but he didn't become a Yellow to posture and preen. He cared what the other Heads thought, yes, but he wasn't about to compromise on his principles for them.

The gardens were a good place to think and work at the same time. Maever took himself there so he could ponder his last meeting and work out what he was going to do about it, whilst also doing something so he didn't feel like he was shirking his work.

He was always happy for company though, and when Isla entered the gardens the smile he offered her was genuine and warm. The light of the garden made her look pretty, where it just made him look older; his temples were fast on the road to white and his crow's feet were settling in despite having taken the Oaths. He was just clipping one of the catfern bushes and didn't pause what he was doing, his hands moving in a practised motion to get all the leaves for whatever poultice they needed it for. "Fortune favour you," he said in his quiet voice, and he actually sounded like he meant the saying. "You do be well? I have seen you in the Infirmary a lot lately - it do be handy to take some time out." Said the man who often had to be shooed out of the Infirmary to get some rest.

He popped the leaves into the small bucket between his legs. The Illianer was perched on a stool, his somewhat gangly legs awkwardly splayed either side. He flexed his cold fingers - it was bright, but certainly cold - and realised he didn't have a stool nearby for Isla. If she even wanted to sit on a stool. Maybe she did, if she was here to do work, but he didn't want to presume! "Do you be wanting a seat? Here," he stood up and offered the stool to the Yellow with no hesitation.

"No, no," she said easily as she waved him back to his seat. "Keep your seat, please." Oh, this woman was a far, far cry from the one who had come to the Grey Tower all those years ago. Although she was sad that her lover and warder was away, she was still a far more contented and fulfilled person than she'd ever been before.

She crossed to another section of the gardens and knelt, not worried about the dirt on her dress. It just made her more the Yellow. She set her basket aside and began clipping some herbs. She cast a look back at Maever. "It's a beautiful day out," she said. "What're you working on today? Or just found an excuse to enjoy the sun?"
