It had been nearly an entire sevenday since the last Threadfall, and Karredy's ridiculous stunt. Talera had returned from Igen with good news, his own endeavor at Benden had been likewise successful, and with that out of the way.... A'zael sighed, shuffling things around on his desk for the umpteenth time. There was no avoiding the inevitable conversation any longer. It was good he had waited anyway. Thinking about it, about Karredy at all, no longer caused a volatile flare of fury in him. Frustration, yes, but that was far more manageable. Hopefully that meant he could stay calm when confronting her. He had no desire to get into a shouting match.
He considered briefly whether he should go to her or call her to his weyr instead. From all B'rax had taught him, he knew there was some sort of subtle meaning to both courses of action, but for the life of him he had no idea what that might be. Would it be too much courtesy to go to her, considering just what they would be discussing? Would it feel like cornering her, because honestly what was she going to do, flee her own weyr? He rubbed a hand over his face in annoyance at how stupidly complicated everything seemed to be for him ever since he became Weyrleader.
Shells to it. He strode out of his office and out of his weyr, down the hall to the Weyrwoman's door, and stopped short of knocking. Should he have had Fath send word ahead of him? Shells to that too. He knocked, and he waited. He didn't feel the need to announce himself. Zalmaranth would surely tell her just who waited outside her door. After all, Fath did so for him all the time.
