The past few days had been good. Every waking moment was spent working, repairing, gathering and salvaging. It was busy in a way that demanded his mind full attention all the time. No time to rest until night came. And he was tired enough to fall asleep without having a moment to think.
"You have a question."
Vitek thinks for a moment to compose his question. "They each look like one of you. And both of you look too young to have daughters that age?"
"Oh, we had them with each other. Sevet is a shapeshifter. He can take a form that's capable of child-bearing."
Sevet looks closer to Vitek's reaction.
Vitek just blinks and looks Sevet up and down.
"Curious about something?"
"Don't make him uncomfortable."
"It's okay, but thank you." He starts squirming.
"Are you uncomfortable?"
"I am... a bit too comfortable."
"We can drop the topic if you want."
"I think he meant physically."
"Yeah, I think this bed is too soft for me."
"We could just go out for a walk."
"That sounds good."
"Would you rather avoid people or meet them?"
"Is there any specific you would want?"
Shrug. "Friendly people?"
"Everyone is friendly."
Sevet doesn't contradict that, instead he offers. "We could take him through the garden and see who we meet there?"
