Roderick had noted the way A'dam reacted to the mention of L'ric being a friend. Perhaps there was something that the old fisherman didn't know, but that didn't really matter. His niece was happy and he knew she wasn't about to leave the bluerider that she'd known for most of her life. Thus, when asked to wait, he paused and looked to Erin for a moment before he started chatting with her. The children greeted their adoptive mother, telling her about their stay.
L'ric paused when A'dam caught his arm. He had to agree with the words spoken, he didn't think that the two of them would ever be friends, but he also had a friend back there who had just announced that she was pregnant... and certainly he should be there for her as a friend. Of course, he watched A'dam walk away feeling a new found respect for the man. Course, it could be that the bluerider didn't think that he would have tried to stop the other man if their rolls had been reversed.
Erin gave A'dam a curious look when he came back and requested to pull Roderick aside for a moment, although she felt better when she noticed his smile before she decided to spend some more time with the children (although L'ric was welcome if he chose to stay). By the time the two men had entered the house, L'ric approached the group of three.
"Hey Erin," the man smiled, running his hand through his hair a little nervously.
"Hey, L'ric. I suppose you haven't met my kids," she chuckled, "This here is Saelit and Selisa." When she introduced the boy she simply placed a hand on his head and with Selisa, she started tickling the girl. Naturally there was a nice little high pitched, girly squeal of delight that left the girl as she was tormented by her mother.
L'ric chuckled, "It's nice to meet you, kids."
Saelit eyed the man, although he couldn't really hide the smile at his sister's delight. He was about to suffice things with a grunt... until he remembered how A'dam had reacted when they had met Silvara. "Hello," he greeted, bringing a smile to Erin's face. Naturally the boy had to adjust his behavior when A'dam was away...
Roderick watched the younger manbefore him as they went inside and he looked around to make certain no one else was within hearing distance. Within the first sentence, Roderick knew what was coming... but he politely waited while the bluerider worked his way through his little speech. A smile touched his lips as he decided to tease the younger man a bit, "I thought you riders didn't get married?" he asked, although it was clear from the happy look in his eyes and on his face in general that he was more than pleased with the idea. Besides, if that S'erian had already given his approval of the idea, then why shouldn't Roderick?
