A river otter affinity sits while fishing on the beach at the edge of Clan Aluvar's island. It was taking longer than usual for any fish to bite and his mind was wandering. Unfortunately, that meant he was thinking out loud.
"What's with the fish today? Either they've gotten smarter or my bait's gone bad."
His whiskers twitch as he yawns slightly.
"I'm staying until I catch my dinner," he says stubbornly.

With a slightly squeeky laughing the woman responded "I should hope you have! Elder Irryk youngling, good to see at least some of us still use our own hands! If you can't catch anything, do you want to come eat with me? Clikk caught some good fish on his way back from playing Catch Me with the younglings."
"I'm Nareidda. Good to see you again, Elder Irryk," the river otter affinity says with a smile. "I know it would be faster not to, but I like to fish this way. Thanks for the offer, if you have enough for both of us, I'd love to."
Laughing fondly Irryk responded "I have more than enough. Clikk is a good friend, and is happy to provide me with fish enough to share. Now, how shall you earn your supper? I know! You can take care of my niece tomorrow. Sound good?"
Irryk chuckled "She's a good kid, and I'd take her myself, but there's a council meeting I have to attend to... " under her breath the Elder grumbled "Sure, make me do all the work. About time that poor kid got out and about. Maybe he'll finally find a girl!"
Slipping in through the door flap, Irryk drapped her robe over a chair and took off the scarf guarding her pale eyes from the light. Grinning widely she began to put several silver fish into a pan, along with a bit of water and some lemon and spice. Setting a lid on the pan, and resting it under some coals, she settled back onto an over large cushion and gestured for Nareidda to make himself at home.
