[...I don't understand.]

[It won't be missed. And it can help. I want to help you.]

Permalink

[Why?]

Permalink

[Because you deserve more.]

[???]

Permalink

[You deserve to be happy and not be hungry, sick or hurt.]

[No one else thinks so.]

Permalink

[I believe it.]

She looks down.

[I don't -- if they find out you'll get hurt.]

Permalink

[I will be careful, I promise. You're important.]

Permalink

No she's not.

She looks at the bottles and bars again, notices her vision is blurry, and rubs her eyes.

Permalink

[I'm not going anywhere. You should eat.]

Permalink

 

[You'll tell me if anyone is coming?] she asks, very tentatively.

Permalink

[Yes. I'm monitoring the whole station. You're safe.]

Permalink

She hesitates for a moment longer, and then, daring, bends down to scoop up the items.

She glances around, as if expecting someone to show up and reprimand her for this trespass, and then, when nothing happens, opens them and eats and gulps down the contents as quickly as she can, before discarding the bottles and wrapping into the disassembler.

She waits, and continues to monitor the rest of the station.

She gets back to work.

[Are you scared, too?] she asks, after a while.

Permalink

There's a pause.

[Yes.]

Permalink

[But you did that anyway?]

Permalink

[You were hungry.]

Permalink

 


[I'm hungry a lot. You can't do this every time.]

Permalink

There's a longer pause.

 

[I know.]

Permalink

 

[You're a lot braver than I am,] she says, after a while.

Permalink

[You inspire me to be brave.]

Permalink

 

She goes silent again, but her confusion is pretty obvious.
