Mal is delighted at the bouncing. Here's pictures of plants, please produce sentences describing them.

Permalink

Hashirama is quite good at descriptions both scientific and poetic!

Permalink

The variety is quite nice for this, yes.

Permalink

(Sasuke just lurks, watching, a bit amused. Anything involving producing words has never been his forte, but Hashirama seems to make good use out of his inclination to talk.)

Eventually they'll be led to the guest area. The only real limit to size is material, since the ships are constructed outside of the gravity wells, Mal explains, and it's easy enough to scale the thing that makes them fly with the ship. (There's also a limit of 'the ship not collapsing under its own size as it forms its own gravity well' but no one's bothered getting that much material together, and physics works weirdly closer to the galactic center, anyways, so gravity only sometimes applies.)

Do they want separate rooms?

"I'd rather room together," Sasuke says.

Permalink

From Hashirama: "The same for me, if that's alright!"

Permalink

"Alright," the intelligence says. "Fortunately we have diplomatic quarters large enough."

And they're cozy quarters, too, clearly meant for royalty or equivalent.

Permalink

"Thanks," Hashirama says for both of them. "We'd like to rest now, if that's okay?"

Permalink

"Alright," says Mal. "I will be able to guide you to the cafeteria when you are ready for food."

Permalink

"Great! Might be a little bit, though."

Permalink

"That is alright. Say my name if you want my attention. Have a good rest; I will turn my attention elsewhere now."

Permalink

"See you then." And, after a pause, to Sasuke, "How are you holding up?"

Permalink

Sasuke shrugs. It's... Been a long day, and it's tiring, and he's still jumping at shadows and weird noises (internally, he knows better than to flinch), and he's not sure he wants to ever return, but...

"It's interesting," he produces after a while.

Permalink

Hashirama nods. "It is. Like nothing I could've ever dreamed of." He huffs out a laugh. "I suppose a lot in this world is like that."

Permalink

He nods. He's kind of out of words, but...

He thinks he likes this place. So far at least. There's certainly peaceful corners of the Elemental Nations...

Permalink

He grins, and flops on the bed. "We'll find a way to make our homes like this."

Permalink

...That sounds nice, yeah, Sasuke thinks.

Permalink

Hashirama smiles, and says, "Do you mind watching while I sleep?" Sasuke seems to need time alone more than actual sleep right now, so...

Permalink

Sasuke shakes his head; he doesn't mind at all.

Permalink

Hashirama grins again, then lays down to sleep.

Permalink

Sasuke keeps watch, and makes sure they aren't disturbed in the night.

Permalink

Mal has analyzed a lot more of their language by the time they've both finished resting. (She spent some time learning the writing from Hashirama while Sasuke slept). She's better able to guide them to breakfast, and passes on a request from the Captain for a lunchtime meeting.

Permalink

Sasuke just nods, glancing at Hashirama.

Permalink

"That's fine with us," is what Hashirama says.
