"That's wonderful that you got to see the dragon hatch, Leigh! Your family has done so much for dragons, and are to be admired for the work they do. Not many chose to dedicate their lives to something so dangerous, but seeing the birth of a baby, well, I would hope the miracle of life, even a dangerous one, is enough," he grinned, overly excited about them having a hatchling around the same time as he did. He wondered of Ainsleigh knew how lucky she was to witness something like that, though growing up around it meant she perhaps knew and understood more than Charlie did in some respects.
Taking a long drink from his coffee, Charlie gave Ainsleigh his complete attention, leaning forward with her. "I"ll certainly keep that in mind," he said, a smile on his face, "and I never really thought about traveling to Greece, nor have I considered traveling anywhere with the Weird Sisters." Laughing a bit and sitting back, Charlie popped a chip in his mouth, keeping the basket in the middle of the table so Ainsleigh could have as much as she wanted. "If you find time to go sight seeing one day, I hope you do. One of my favourite things to do is go on a walk with no particular destination in mind, especially just out walking around in nature, along a river, on a beach, high in the mountains..." Taking a deep breath, Charlie suddenly missed Romania more than he realised, thinking it was about time he returned for at least one weekend visit to go hiking with his mates.
"Tell me, Leigh," he said, finishing up his cup of coffee, "do you prefer working with musicians or do you miss dragons?" He could not hide a grin. Charlie envied Ainsleigh for her opportunities to be around dragons so much, but would not change anything about what he had done in his life or what he had.
