makesthings: (using fire and charter)
[personal profile] makesthings
Since he's found a door to Milliways again, Sam's days have been full of the forge and Kait.

At the moment, his major project is the soldier for Tavi, which is going slowly due to the joints and detail work.

So to put his thoughts in order, he works on the simpler things that need to get done, arrow heads and horseshoes.

The forge is hot and the glow of the Charter adds another layer to the fire.

Dream or not, Nick's still determined to explore as much as he can of this wonderful, impossible place while he has the chance.

His peregrinations having led him to the lake door, he opens it and steps outside, beaming in exuberant delight as he glances around.

The glow from the outbuilding draws him like a moth to its flame, and Nick promptly starts across the grass toward the forge, calling out,

"Hello? Is there anybody there?"

"Brilliant, thanks, I've been wanting to see in here--"

Nick jerks to a stop as he enters the room, and stares.

"Sam?"

"Took the words right out of my mouth--"

He dashes across the room toward Sameth, heedless of heat or coals or sparks.

"--what are you doing here? How did you find it? Did you get my letter?"

"Brilliant," Nick exclaims. He looks absurdly pleased, his face lit with his exuberant smile.

"Kept it a secret, did you, old chap?"

"Could have told me," he points out. "But never mind, I bet you were keeping it as a surprise for when I got there, right?"

Nick's eyes go wide with shock.

"Yesterday?!"

"The postal service up in your Old Kingdom really leaves something to be desired, old chap," Nick tells him.

"Good thing I didn't wait for a reply before heading out."

"The match, right--"

He sobers very quickly.

"-- I do remember, and you--"

That's as far as he gets before he begins to cough; deep, tearing coughs that seem as though they're going to choke him before he can get another breath.

He can't speak, but he shakes his head and flaps one hand in the air, still coughing.

"--bronchitis," he manages to wheeze. "--can't seem to shake it-- happens sometimes--"

"--oh no, you don't--"

He gasps for breath, and starts coughing harder as his vision blurs.

"--not your Charter stuff, not without -- I have to -- ready to measure first -- "

Nick presses one hand to his chest as though it pains him and gasps in another breath.

"-- blast it all anyway I hate being sick-- maybe that water's a good idea after all--"

He shakes his head again, stubbornly, and clutches the cup in shaking hands as he downs half of the contents in one swallow.

"Probably -- just overheated-- get out--"

The cup hits the ground as he starts coughing again. Nick shoves himself to his feet and staggers toward the door.

He nods, and takes a few gulps of air before trying to speak.

"Like I-- said in the letter," Nick tells him, finally. "Clean air, that's the ticket. Must have just gotten overwarm in there, or something."

"No, it's all right."

He turns a little on the bench, so that he can better face Sameth, and grins.

"So? Tell me everything! What have you found out about this place?"
