She switches to the backstroke after ten laps. Ten more and she rolls over again; breaststroke. She has waterproof headphones and an audiobook going.
"Makes sense." Sahde looks at his clock. "And I think he'll be here any minute now."
"Speaking of partner selection."
And a few minutes later this cute green on an electric wheelchair appears zooming closer to them. The chair is really quiet, and it seems to be pretty easy to control from what little Ohan is doing to the buttons on the arm of the chair.
"Hi!" She waves. "You must be Ohan."
"Yup," he says, smoothly parking his wheelchair close to them. "And you must be Pelape Milath. It's so exciting to meet you! Sahde told me all about you."
"Nonsense, I'm sure I don't know nearly as much as 'all' about her," Sahde says, grinning up at Ohan.
"What things did you manage to cover, then?"
"Smart, thoughtful, introspective, insightful, knowledgeable..."
"He was significantly more verbose than that about each of those adjectives."
"I regret nothing."
"Oh to have been a fly on the wall. Well, what should I know about you?" she asks Ohan.
"Depends on what this one told you," he says, hiking a thumb in Sadde's direction. "I promise it was all legal, whatever he said."
"I'm so reassured."
"You should be! I never lie."
"Terms and conditions apply, check the warranty manual for details, void in Yvalta, Cene, and Jakavi-Elesean."
"Oh come on."
Sahde just grins at him.
"To answer your question," he says, pointedly turning away from Sahde, "I think I'm probably like the stereotypical green inventor type. I make stuff, I publish papers on stuff, I make more stuff, I help out at the university, and I make even more stuff."
"You're the hyperverbal one here."
"You souped up your chair, right?"
"Totally did." And just to demonstrate, he presses a few buttons on the left armrest and it starts moving forward... and accelerating to rather alarming speeds, for a wheelchair. It doesn't seem to have problems with the grassy terrain, though, and Ohan unconcernedly does some sharper turns than it looks like he should be able to before returning to the both of them and decelerating quickly but smoothly.
"It goes much faster, but I don't think it'd be safe to do that here, the park's not made for souped up wheelchairs."
