With each suddenly holding a bowl of meat and an egg with its hatchling ready to escape, both shoved onto them (though fortunately having things shoved into their arms was a common occurance, in BM), Colt, and then Gerry, settled down onto the sand as well.

The half-elf didn't so much so much as sprawl against the edge of the sand as lean against it on his side, egg nestled nearby, and the bowl of meat ready at hand.

Gerry had lowered herself down, folding down into sitting Indian style, egg right in front of her, with a small bit of meat already pinched between her fingers, all her attention and concentration focused on the egg.

Colt's egg was the very first one to hatch, the green keening for food. His eyes widened- both at surprise at the sudden hunger he felt himself, and her appearance- and softened, as he grabbed a small piece and offered it to the green, his other hand reaching to get her unsnared and unflopped with gentle fingers. His thoughts weren't just of love, but of companionship, friendship, being welcomed. All this he was directing at the green, things he wanted the tiny hatchling to feel. The group he had found here in the PPC wasn't just who he worked with, they were also family.

And then Gerry's hatchling broke from his own shell, getting a cry of delight from the woman. "I have food right here for you, bossywings," she said as much as thought, sounding pleased and proud, squashing the feelings of hunger that had bubbled up, nudging the bit already in her fingers towards him. For this, for the hatchling, she wouldn't trade anything in the world.
