Reji and Charisa

“Lack of direction, not lack of time,
is the problem. We all have
twenty-four hour days.”

~ Zig Ziglar ~

Reji has learned the art of patience by working in his field, though it took him many years. He is a Geologist constantly traveling with scientists from the Subetan Geological Survey to assess the quality of Subeta's mineral deposits and to collect samples for research into new applications for even the most commonplace stones.

He is no less eager to accept the occasional assignment from the Natural Museum, collecting colorful geodes for educational and beautiful displays. The hollowed rocks with their swirls of silver and points of deepest purple have even been featured in the Museum's advertising brochure.

He loves every part of his work as Subeta's leading expert on rocks, minerals, and crystal formations. He never tires of invitations from Iltallo to look over the crystal supply of Coda Caves before access is granted once again to the public. He will gladly sign your copy of Gems and Geodes: A Geologist's Field Guide to Underground Wonders.

For all his successes, though, Reji enjoys nothing as much as a new dig site.

Novices always get discouraged the first day of a new dig. They go to a site expecting to find a diamond their first hour on the job though in most cases they end up with a tub full of graphite.

Reji loves to tell the University students in the bunch that they will find many more uses for graphite in the course of their lives than a single bit of sparkly rock.

He doesn't always have a say in who is assigned to a dig team. Sometimes he gets fellow enthusiasts with years of experience and a passion for the work. These are the sort of teams he honestly regrets to dissolve at the end of the assignment. On other digs he has dealt with employees of the Centropolis Temporary Agency that see shifting rocks through mud and water as just another job. Reji tolerates inexperience but has no use for whining or laziness. Failure to live up to expectations will earn an employee the dreaded black mark and the first available plane back to Subeta Main. 'Do your job well or find another one.' It's a sort of motto of his.

It is the same with students. Some are in the advanced stages of earning their degree, bringing with them new insights for drilling and sorting techniques. These are the Geologists of tomorrow but even they must pull their own weight on a dig. He does not believe in coddling youths for their age. They will not learn to stand on their own feet if their professors are constantly grabbing their hands.

He hates general education students. They are the worst of all possible options, interested only in securing a good grade to move on to their art history, psychology, or physics advanced courses. They expect an easy A for minimal effort and quickly discover they have come to the wrong place to earn it.

Georgie is like that. The young dawn lain bats her long lashes at the boys, working a brush over the stone in front of her every now and then when she realizes Reji is watching. She has barely lifted a feather in three days though he has made it a point to give her plenty of tasks that even a minion could complete. She has a sweet smile on her face when he makes his approach, expecting yet another professor that is easy to flatter. That smile falls away as he snatches the brush from her wingtip and points to the waiting bus.

There was a time he would have lost his temper and screamed at the useless girl for wasting valuable time on something as frivolous as applying eyeshadow. He glances over at Charisa, a beautiful blacklight Keeto who is his long-time partner in the field who has soothed his inner devil. She likes to tease that someday she'll have the world calling him Angel, instead of Diablo. It is for her sake he keeps his voice from rising as he addresses the girl, but his ears flatten and his tail lashes with his irritation.

"You're off the site. You whine like a burrero without a carrot, you bribe your classmates to do your share of the work, and what little work you do is such poor quality that I have to question how you ever passed the University entrance exam. It wouldn't surprise me if you flirted your way in."

He is deaf to her pleading and takes no notice of her tears as a more dedicated student calls his attention to a small deposit of feldspar down a narrow corridor. The potters who prepare goods for Home Appliances will enjoy the end result of this broken-down mineral. Reji nods to the priggle. She has promise, though all her finds thus far have been common.

Charisa is waiting for him as he emerges, shoving a bottle of water into his paw. "She was still crying when the bus pulled onto the highway."

Reji shrugs and finishes off half the bottle. "We're here to get some real work done, not run a preschool class. I gave her every chance to be part of this team."

Charisa gives him a kiss on the cheek. "I know. We've got a way to go on that temper of yours, but at least you controlled your voice this time. They couldn't hear you at the other end of the canyon."

Reji offers her the hint of a grin, still angry inside at the smirk on that lain's face. Charisa has taught him so much about controlling his temper but she cannot remove it entirely. She has given him the power not to take out his frustration on anyone else and for that he will always be grateful. When a clumsy telenine once again manages to get his pick caught between two stones, Reji is able to demonstrate a better digging technique without exploding into curse words.

Charisa wanders off to help spread the sorting canvas. Reji turns for the cave that has so far yielded nothing of any great value. It was in just such a place that he found a chunk of richterite the size of his head; a magnificent specimen with swirls of lilac, violet, and amethyst. It was one of those rare pieces that even the most selfless Subetan would have a hard time giving away. He keeps it on a red velvet cushion, secured with walls of glass and a touch pad only his eyescan can unlock.

It was also at such a site that he found the perfect piece of amethyst, Charisa's favorite stone.

He waits until he is well underground to dig the bracelet out of his hidden pocket. His first find serves as the center gem, while each slot around the circle holds a unique amethyst from another dig site. He took great care to find stones that were just the right shades of purple to compliment Charisa's dark hair.

There is only one slot left and today he intends to fill it. They have a grand dig coming up in the Sacred Lands, one that may even produce a few gems of value. It is there that Reji intends to propose.

He has an instinct about the earth that is almost always right. Here the conditions are perfect and the quality of the stones as he moves inward are promising. He squeezes between thin cracks that students and temp workers would not dare to attempt. The echo of water falling in the distance is loud so deep underground but he does not mind the sound.

The cavern he seeks shows with the glory of a perfect amethyst cluster. He takes his time, holding up his small battery-powered lantern to the formation. The crystal he wants is on the outer edge, fortunately. He is careful to chip away only the amount he needs, tucking it with great care into a hidden pocket next to the one where the bracelet is kept.

He will spend the early morning hours cutting and polishing while Charisa is asleep. He is fortunate that his love is a heavy sleeper. Sometimes he wishes she could join him to witness the glory of sunrise. He is hoping the look in her eyes and the smile on her face when he closes the bracelet on her foreleg above the paw will be just as glorious.
