[Order of Adunih] Avid Pupils (Cail & Gennnadiya)

Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:56 am

Tree Talk Xanthean Common


8 Ymiden, 718
The Infirmary, Earth Circle, Rharne


Oonah was nervous. It was her first day of class. This wasn't the same as learning her mother's skills or researching books. This was learning with other students, albeit her fellow Order sisters. Her eyes shifted to Cail, then slid towards Gennadiya, and then dropped to her hands (which were clenched between her knees to hide a tremble) rather than look at their teacher, the head doctor at the Infirmary, Balen Helvin. What if she couldn't learn as quickly as the others? She was afraid to ask a dumb question or talk too much or not enough. What if her mind froze and she wouldn't be able to answer if called upon? What-If-She-Failed?!

She had to break the self-destructive thoughts running through her mind so her first words came out as if she were gasping for air to keep from drowning, "Thanks for you, Balen, for learning help us with Gardening." She watched the old man in his rough-spun clothes settle cross-legged on a grassy patch just inside the stone fence of the medical garden in the alley alongside the building. "Always have I searched for plants in the fields and forests, just new learning how to buy for them from market. Nothing known how to grow own...." Her words trailed off. Did the others think that being a plant person herself, she should know how to grow plants...?

The kind old man seemed to sense her discomfort. "People do not realize how much really goes into growing healthy, medically-potent plants, Sister Oonah." He caught the eye of each of his three students, "It is my pleasure to share what I know. You've picked a good place to start by giving me a good idea of what plant experience you already have." He quirked an inquisitive brow in turn toward Cail and Gennadiya encouraging their responses so he could tailor his lecture to meet all their needs.

Feeling a little bit better about herself, Oonah shuffled her writing lead and parchment pages; at the ready to slip her notes in between the well-worn pages of her mother's medicinal book.

"Today we will talk about planning a garden, planting herbs, and what common medicinal plants you might want to include in a garden of your own." He emphasized each objective by pointing toward tools and various parts of the well-tended garden they sat next to. "Planting your own medicine garden isn't just a good way to have what you need fresh and ready when you need it or to save money by not having to pay a seller's mark up. Can you tell me what other benefits might come from growing a garden?"

The Tunawa studied the little plot of land looking for her answer. She could feel the richness of the dark soil that she'd pushed her toes into and watched how the bees and butterflies danced between flower heads, bumbling or graceful, but industrious. A small orchestra of buzzing and chirping drowned out the public sounds from the nearby street. "Is a good place to be for other creatures to help find what they need to live?"

Balen's eyes brightened, "That is a good answer, Sister Oonah. Small animals, birds, insects, and even microorganisms make their homes here. It's called a 'habitat'."

Oonah didn't know what a "My Crow Org Nizm' was so wrote it down and underlined it next to the word 'habitat' in her notes. She couldn't help but grin in accomplishment toward her Sisters wondering what they might say.

Cail walked through the city on her way to the order. She had wanted to stay there, but she was scared to ask if Triton and Paige would board with her. The Biqaj did not want to be more of a burden on the order than an asset. That would make her expendable in their minds, which would leave to turning towards piracy more real. Looking up at the sky, her heart rate picked up realizing if the woman did not hurry then she would be late.

That was the last thing the Biqaj would need to be known for. Picking up her pace, the woman said goodbye to Paige and Triton as they go to explore the city. She wanted to bring them with her since the child could write where the adult couldn’t. But that had been dismissed when the woman first joined the order. Praying to U’frek that she would not look like a fool while in the class. Cail hoped that she would be able to get away with no having to write or read.

Upon arriving, she was glad to see that the class had not yet began. Moving quickly, Cail dipped her head in embarrassment at being the last to arrive. It was a relief to see her friend Oonah was in the class as well. At least then the woman would have someone she knew to review the knowledge with. The other woman that was in the “classroom” seemed familiar to the Biqaj. But that could be her just trying to be friendly. Smiling sheepishly, Cail sat on the other side of Oonah and listened as carefully as she could.

After Oonah spoke thanking the man for helping them learn, Cail felt more out of her depth than before. It seemed that Oonah and the one called Genn had much more experience with the plants that surrounded them. Slowly lifting her eyes to meet Balen, the girl shook her head no to having any kind of knowledge. Suddenly feeling bad, the woman looked back at the door through her hair wondering if she could make a run for it without making herself look more like a fool.

When he moved on without mentioning her lack of knowledge, Cail calmed some and watched as Oonah took out the book she carried around everywhere. Nervously, the woman dug into her bag bringing out the paper that Paige had insisted she bring along with some coal to write with. Her hands shook gently as she tried to figure out how to form letters. Finally giving up when half her paper ended up just covered in +’s and o’s; the biqaj began to do very basic child like drawings of the things Balen pointed out.

Looking up at the question, she felt her mind go blank as the woman looked over the garden around them. Oonah was proving her intelligence and that made Cail very happy for her. She at least knew who would be able to help her learn better. Staying silent for a moment the Biqaj turned to look at the man as he explained Oonah’s answer more in depth. Focusing her hardest, the woman drew the child’s equivalent to what looked like a normal garden.

“Would it help keep the grower calm?” Cail asked quietly.

Balen turned to look at the woman and smiled at her, “yes, sister Cail. Tending to a garden can be stressful when you first start. But the more you learn the process the more soothing it can be. There are also several plants we will learn about that when mature can help calm the nervous with just their natural scent. One example is the Lavender plant.”

Re: [Order of Adunih] Avid Pupils (Cail & Gennnadiya)

The young Lysorian woman sat quiet for the lecture. The young woman wasn’t a big fan of the gardening side of healing, but she was more than aware that the gardening part was also important. So when the classes had been offered and Oonah has asked the platinum healer had agreed to join. So it was that she arrived just a couple minutes before class began, and as was her way had come prepared. Her skirt was brown and her stockings were practical and sturdy. She also wore a vest over her shirt and the sleeves of her shirt went firmly to her wrists. Lastly a wide brimmed had rested on her head to keep the sun from burning her fair skin. Adiya didn’t avoid the sun, but past experiences had taught her gardening tending to keep you out in the sun longer then someone with her skin color should be.

She took her seat next to Oonah and they were soon joined by Cail, another sister healer. The blue eyed woman smiled at the new woman who she had seen around but hadn’t really had a chance to talk to. Maybe they could finally get a chance to meet this trial. She wasn’t able to do more then smile and nodded in greeting when Balen joined them. Gennadiya was fairly familiar with the older doctor as her previously direct supervisor, her move to the clinic had adjusted that a bit. She respected the man and knew his to be very knowledgeable.

With no further question the class had begun and Gennadiya kept her pen poised for any notes. The young woman knew herself well enough to know that if she wrote more then key words and ideas she would pay more attention to what she was writing instead of what was being said. So she was ready to make notes, but wasn’t a frantic scribbler. Gennadiya listened as Oonah explained that she had always hunted herbs in the wilds. Gennadiya was looked at next and she spoke.

“My first healing instructor kept a garden, and we worked in it a bit, she didn’t really teach me how to plant a garden though, but how to carefully harvest it.” The woman said still remembering all of the pots in the woman’s backroom.

Balen nodded his head at the answer before glancing at Cail. They continued on and while Gennadiya noticed the head shake she didn’t think anything of it. Many healers came with no gardening experience, and frankly her own was all that helpful. Then they came to the question of the value of gardens beyond supply the herbs for their trade. Gennadiya paused and tapped her pen against her chin feeling the hard wood gently come in contact and then disappear. She listened to the other answers before she finally answered herself.

“It helps us learn how to nurture.” Gennadiya said. “As healers we have to help others, and sometimes it nothing beyond helping to encourage and providing support. A garden needs to be nurtured to achieve its potential.”

Balen nodded his head. “Very true, a garden will usually grow on its own, but there is no guarantee that it will grow what you need or want. We are growing a garden to supply herbs to we have to firm but gentle to make sure we have the plants we want and they are in a condition to grow. Okay next questions. Where can we plant and herbal garden and what would affect where we plant it.”

He looked at Gennadiya first this time she answered. “My first instructor kept large pots in the house where she could control the temperature and plant some herbs that needed specific temperature.” Balen nodded his head and looked on.

Balen's wise gaze crossed over the women, calculating where each was in their experience as he listened and addresed their various answers. He considered each healer's writing style and how he might best address their individual needs.

He felt he wouldn't need to watch over Gennadiya with her abbrieviated sentences and trigger words. He could tell she'd done this before. Oonah's deliberate efforts to get everything correct, though, could slow the class down. He would need to use small, common words for the little healer's ease of translation. It just wouldn't do for her to make a mistake because she misinterpretted. Mistakes in this line of work could be very - unfortunate.

Seeing the scrawls upon Cail's page - well, he knew what might put her more at ease. He would draw pictures when he could, such as describing leaves, flowers, and stems to help with identification when different seasons make a plant more difficult to identify. So, when he mentioned Lavender as a calming herb, he lifted a bit of soft rock-chalk to a flat slab of limestone to sketch the outlines of the plant with whorls of six to ten flowers along square, spikey stalks on an angular stem and needle-like leaves. Then he spelled out L-A-V-E-N-D-E-R.

Oonah jotted down Cail's answer to the benefits of working in a garden although the Tunawa naturally knew already how calming a physical connection to the earth and plants could be. Her toes wriggled deeper into the soil at the reminder as she could use all the calm she could get.

Gennadiya's answer about learning how to nurture life made a simple kind of sense. Then Oonah thought about the opposite - to hinder life - and how that seemed to align more with her interest in poisons. She expected that her mother would be very supportive of her 'little sprout' learning gardening to engage a more nurturing frame of mind.

Balen moved the lesson on, 'Where can we plant an herbal garden and what would affect where we plant it.' Gennadiya's answer took Oonah by surprise as she'd never considered growing plants in pots or keeping them indoors.

For her own answer, Oonah thought about how the trees and underbrush grew in the forest. The ground was usually bare beneath heavy-limbed trees, while brambles grew thick in areas where younger trees grew lighter canopys, and how grasses and wild flowers grew profusely in clearings with no shade at all. "Some plants better like shade and some sun, some lots of wet and some more dry. To know which plants like best is good for picking where garden to be."

'Mmmmm hmmmmm.' Bailen responded without inflection, causing a little niggle of worry to squirm up Oonah's back that she mentally squashed. Perhaps Cail's answer would get more of a response from the knowledgable healer than either Oonah's or Gennadiya's. Oonah smiled encouragingly to her friend with a little, 'You got this' nod.

Balen picked up slate and chalk to draw a diagram. "Once you have picked your herbs and know what kind of space each needs, you might save time and a lot of effort by planning how you will plant them to best insure healthy growth." He tilted the slate so the women could see - a map of the garden divided into various-sized, retangular sections labeled 'shade/tall, light/short, and ground cover.

"Now it's time to get our hands dirty." Their instructor began massaging old, knarl-knuckled hands into the rich, dark soil and continued, "Before planting either seeds, or sprouts that you have started in pots, you must prepare your soil."

The old man used his fingers and a curious little tool he called a 'spade' to loosen the dirt on a new patch of ground. "Lightly rake the soil even and remove any stones larger than the first knuckle of your thumb; or for you, Healer Oonah, anything larger than your closed fist." He worked diligently for a few bits, pinching and pitching small stones to the side. "Then, use your thumb or the handle of a spade to press small holes into the soil. Don't forget to space them apart enough for growth. A rule of thumb is to place seeds three finger spans apart for small growing plants. Then cover the seeds with a light blanket of soil and water them indirectly or sprinkle so you don't wash away the seeds you just planted."

Sitting back upon his haunches, Balen brushed a dirt-smudged wrist against his moist face leaving a dark smear on his forehead as he watched his students prepare their own little patch of garden. "Are there any questions before you start selecting what herbs you would like to plant?"

Cail was glad when the healer finally stopped looking at her so intently. Quickly putting her head down, she watched closely when the man began to draw what he called a Lavender plant. Amazed at how detailed the drawing was, the woman tried her best to copy it as quickly as she could before he cleaned off the slate. Glancing up the Biqaj knew she needed to write the word with it, but she had never been that fast at anything that did not pertain to a ship. Which was now coming back to bite the girl in the butt. Looking back up at the man after putting her coal down, she was not bothered by the fact that her hands were black from the coal.

When posed with the question with where a garden could grow and what would make it change her mind went blank. The more questions that were posed the more she wanted to run from the room and hide back on her ship. It was where the woman felt the safest, but this was what she needed to grow and learn. To help keep Paige healthy and taken care of. Gulping, Cail’s eyes cut over to look at Gennadiya as she spoke first. The woman had seen pots before but she could not picture putting plants within them. Shaking her head when the two other students were not paying her any mind, the girl tried to come up with her own answer. All that came to mind was the constant swaying of the ship and how things would slide around. She tried to pay close attention when Oonah spoke of some plants preferring sun or shade; or even some plants needing more water than others.

Soon it was time for her answer, she looked up into Balen’s eyes trying to figure out what to say. The nod from Oonah showing she was there to help the woman helped to settle her nerves. Closing her eyes for a moment to gather her thoughts the brown orbs focused on the man before her knowing he could very well tell the other members of the order she was no healer. That knowledge scared her, there was more riding on her success than any one there knew.

“I work and live on a boat. It is not the ideal place for growing herbs,” Cail stated.

She would not let her lack of knowledge or experience hold back the other two. The woman would do what she could with what little skill she had. However the Biqaj was beginning to believe she belonged in a child’s class rather than sitting beside people who had far more experience. Balen contemplated her answer for a moment while watching the girl’s demeanor. A soft smirk appeared on his face knowing she was uncomfortable and far out of her depth of knowledge.

“That is true, most plants would not survive that kind of salty air. However you are not the first Biqaj to join the Order nor will you be the last. On a ship, you can use hanging baskets in your quarters or down below near an area that can be opened up for light to grow herbs,” Balen said softly trying to reassure the woman.

Cail nodded listening closely to the man. She hoped that perhaps later Oonah would be able to show her what pots the man talked about. All that came to her mind was cook pots and a part of her was fairly certain that was not what they all meant. When the man spoke about getting their hands dirty the woman let out a breath that she had been unknowingly holding. The actual planting looked like it would be far easier than the writing and drawing part. Nodding quickly, the woman instantly started to work the dirt removing the stones. Holding them up one at a time to measure their lengths, she put them into two piles, ones longer than her first knuckle and the second pile was those shorter than her knuckle.

Focusing intently, the woman pushed her thumb into the loosened soil when it was ready. Pulling it back out she put down three fingers then made the next hole. She continued the pattern until the man asked yet another question causing her to look up from what she had previously been doing. Questions. The young Biqaj had plenty of those, though she doubted class was the time to ask all of them so she decided to go with one pertaining to the lesson for the day.

“When do we choose which plants we want to grow?” Cail asked and wiped her face leaving dirt smudged on her.

“In just a few ticks young one,” Balen said with a smile.

The man pulled out three small bags with plenty of seeds in each other them. One was the lavender plant that he had drawn for them. The second bag had what he called sage and the third had mint. The woman wanted to ask what the other two plans would do but decided better. When instructed she walked over and took one of each before returning to her spot and waiting on further instruction.

Gennadiya looked at each of her sister healers as they each took a turn to offer suggestions about where plants could grow. She nodded as Oonah mentioned paying attention to shade and type of wetness. It was a very excellent point. Her gaze then moved on to Cail as she hesitantly talked about having lived on a ship and salt air not being good for herbs. Gennadiya actually took note of that as she hadn’t really thought about that fact. She thought Cail would be a good person to ask about how to store things against the humidity found in the air on a ship. It was something that could spoil herbs and she suspected the Baqaj had a few tricks about that up their sleeves.

The young woman glanced over at the Baqaj a couple times as she noticed the other woman seemed really nervous and seemed to be struggling with notes. The sapphire blue eyes were kind, gentle and worried at the other woman’s worrying. Gennadiya decided she would need to talk with the other woman one of the trials and get to know her better and see if she could understand the worry.

The lesson progressed and they came to the practical part of the class. Gennadiya was the last to get to the ground and begin to work on her patch of the garden. The Lysorain woman found it amusing that she wouldn’t even pause about sticking her hands in a bloody mess, but she was less then pleased to put her hands in the dirt. Her smile slipped and her eyes became focused as she listened and worked. She focused on the task and not on the feel of the dirt. There instructor did notice Gennadiya give a start when she came across a worm, but watched as used the spade to move the worm somewhere not where she would kill it with her spading. Even though she wasn’t touching the worm there was an air of eww.

Gennadiya didn’t make a sound about her discomfort but worked on. Making first a neat pile of her stones she found and then very precisely measuring out three figure spans between the holes she very carefully made. Once it was done she rubbed her hands together to get what dirt she could off and then sat back. She looked at her sister’s work and smiled at each of them approvingly. Then turned and waited for the next set of instructions.

Oonah had been eagerly waiting for this part all trial. It wasn't as much about the lesson as it was a good excuse to play in the dirt. She had already buried her toes deeply into the soil and now she was able to dig her fingers in too. She spent several bits chucking fist-sized stones from her little plot of land and then raked and sifted the rich, dark dirt until it was the perfect amount of lumpy with approximatly spaced holes. Since the young Tunawa was in her element she finished preparing for her seedlings before both Cail and Gennadya had. Looking up, she smiled contentedly to see both platnum blonde and dark brunnett crowns of hair bent close as her sister healers worked in their separate patches. It felt good to be working alongside them as well.

She couldn't stifle a robin's chuckle as she tossed a tiny pebble at Cail to catch her attention. With a wink of a twinkling eye, Oonah directed Cail's gaze toward Gennadya as the lady healer bravely redirected the mobile efforts of a fat worm toward the outside of her garden with the tip of a spade. Oonah's big chicklet teeth gleamed as she considered antagonizing Gennadya by making a snack of one right in front of her but quickly thought better as such an action would not be respectful of instructor Balen.

@>~>~~

Balen watched the antics of his young charges with a smile hidden behind a strategically placed hand. At his age he'd seen good and bad extremes across the spectrum and sometimes those memories made him feel so very old, but watching these three green cloaks reminded him of his happy youth. Ohh, to be so young again and with so much potential...

Enough of the sap. With a hearty *Garuumph* Balen encouraged Oonah and Gennadya towards the seeds that Cail had already helped herself to. "Now, I've already selected the seeds for this garden - lavendar, sage and mint. All are very common and you should be able to recognize them easily. Both lavender and sage do best in well-drained soil and full sun. To ensure good drainage, mix some sand or gravel into the soil before you plant or grow the plants in mounds. Be sure to water the young plants consistently until they are fully grown so they don't dry out."

"Once lavendar matures it is very low maintenance so doesn't require a lot of watering. If the stems become woody as the plant matures, prune it back by about half its height in the spring to promote fresh new growth and robust flowering. Sage should grow to be between 12 and 30 inches in height, so keep that in mind when you are planting things around it that also need full sun."

"Mints are a little different as they vigorously thrive in light soil with good drainage. They prefer a moist but well-drained site. Most will tolerate some shade, and some types may require some protection from direct sun. Be careful where you plant it. At first, mints develop into well-behaved–looking, bushy, upright clumps, but they soon set out to conquer new territory by spreading horizontal runners underground. If allowed to grow on it's own without pruning it can become a sprawling 4 foot monster, often overgrowing any neighboring plants within a year."

"Now," he looked at Oonah, Gennadya, and Cail in turn, "if you have already considered what plants you would like to start in your own gardens, I would be happy to give you helpful hints totrial; but if you come back tomorrow and can tell me why you have selected your particular plants and how you intend to plant them I will grade you higher." He would be surprised if any of the three could tell him now what detail he was asking of them tomorrow. If someone did, he would ace them on the spot.

~~<~<@
Oonah planned to jot these new notes down alongside the entries in her mother's medicinal journal as soon as she had a chance. It crossed her mind that it might well be time she began her own journal of experience.

When Balen gave them an opportunity to choose between a quick learn and easy grade versus extra effort for a better grade, Oonah spoke up. "Picked an area have I already for my garden start but would like to more thinking on what to plant there. Tomorrow will see I you." It was her nature to be more methodical and thorough in her studies to be sure she understood everything correctly.

She looked to her companions to see if totrial's lesson would continue or if they would all learn more tomorrow. She had a passing thought that if someone gave their choices totrial, Oonah might have less work to do tonight.

Cail worked hard over her little patch of dirt. She was bent all the way over on the area that had become her plot of land to till. Brown hair completely cut off her view from what the other to women were doing. The last thing she wanted was to fail at the very simple task of putting the seeds in the ground. Blowing her hair to the side some the woman blinked and looked up when a small rock tapped her on the head. The mischievous smile from Oonah caused her to cock her head sideways and look over to Genn.

The woman instantly started to snicker to herself. Cail would have never picked Genn to be squeamish around bugs. From what the woman could tell, she was the more advanced member of the three sitting before Balen, and many of her answers had proved just that in the Biqaj’s mind. Of course the girl’s mind was easily amused for the most part. Shaking her head with a smirk, the woman returned to finishing the last hole. Cail dropped each one of the seeds into a separate hole before covering them with dirt. The only thing left her mind knew how to do was water them.

Thankfully the plants were at the Order and not on her boat. The last thing she needed was to do what others called over watering. Sitting back in her feet the woman twisted her spine side to side trying to make it pop. There was a dull ache left from being bent over for so long trying to focus on the task at hand. Moving some, the girl clapped her hands some to try and get the dirt off her fingers. Listening closely to when they would have to come back and tend the plants; she was confused when Balen mentioned coming back with the reason behind her choice of the seeds.

Surely all of his students would use a variety so that they would be exposed to the different styles of growing. Shocked once again when the man asked if they knew where and what they would grow at what Cail assumed would either their homes or work place. The woman did not need the extra time to really come up with her answer for their teacher.

“I chose to do all three options, because they are all different. Watering is different, lighting is different, growth is different. I do not know of a place besides here that I can actually grow these plants at home. But I wanted to experience as much difference as I could. That is the only way to grow my knowledge is to do it,” Cail stated.
