"That they are. Figure you know more about it than most."

Permalink

"Perhaps," she agrees placidly.

Permalink

He nods and they finally arrive. He mosies over to the console.

"Think we want something exciting. Give our new arrival the best sort of welcome," he says in the direction of the terminal. "Have any recommendations, then?"

Permalink

It flashes and beeps, then a new window pops up with a picture of something delicious looking.

"She certainly tries to be helpful."

Permalink

"She does. And I love her for it. Think I would have wasted away if not for her."

Permalink

"And we wouldn't have wanted that."

Permalink

Kladeos appears suddenly in the doorway.

"There's a we now?"

Permalink

Kastor jumps a little and his whole demeanor changes. It's not submissive, nor afraid, but... careful. Small. He looks back down at the terminal and starts arranging dinner.

Permalink

"In this instance, yes," Saud says to Kladeos. She's taken note of the change in demeanour, but doesn't comment on it.

Permalink

"One big happy family. Settling in then, are we? No... troubles?"

Permalink

"None so far. Kastor gave me some help with my hand to hand."

Permalink

"Did he now. Good for that, is he?"

Permalink

"One of my many talents," he says without much heat and continues to poke the terminal.

Permalink

"It was...informative."

Permalink

He walks into the kitchen and sits at the table.

"Then we've finally found a use for him. The powerless tagalong. You'll have to show me how you work, mate."

Permalink

Kastor's eyes flick to Saud for a moment and then over to Kladeos.

"You want me to... teach her?"

Permalink

"That works for me."

Permalink

"Then it's settled then. You'll have to work out the schedules between yourselves and around our own training, of course."

Permalink

"Of course," Saud agrees.

Permalink

Kastor has no idea what just happened here, under the surface. But he can think about that more later. Showing weakness around Kladeos was... not advised. So he nods his agreement instead.

Permalink

The console beeps again, and the food replicator opens up in a flash of steam to reveal three meals.

Permalink

"Excellent timing as always, my dear."

Permalink

Saud smiles a little.

Permalink

Kastor hands out the plates of food and sits down before his own. It smells very good.
