Who: Krissa and Avan
When: A few days after she convinces him to go gallivanting.
What: So....she picked up a complete stranger and belated realized that. Oops?

She watched the stars wheel and redefine themselves as points instead of smears then grinned at the glass an inch beyond her nose. She was safely away from most major gravity wells now, she couldn't even feel the tingle of a planet. She wasn't sure how everyone else lived with the crushing, hulking solidity of planets really.

Sure, scientists said gravity was necessary to be healthy and such but it hadn't hurt any now had it?

No, she was pretty sure her spotty memory was from other things. And her bones were just fine thank you.

Oh, wait, she wasn't safely away from anything. They were. Um.

"This is a ghost ship," she noted. "Empty last I stopped in, but some operating atmo still. We can use the kitchens? It's a hide spot. I don't remember why." The pod spun lazily on it's axis to show off the dead hulk instead of the empty space around it. Laser marks suggested that the derelict had survived (barely) some sort of war, and this was a still pocket in space where things 'washed up'.

That or maybe Krissa had put it there. Who knew?

"Ever space walk?"

::Not outside a box.:: A considering pause and despite the way he kept watching her without much expression beyond 'one good sneeze from death', he still managed to get across sarcasm and amusement. ::Are you suggesting I hop on out as is?::

A mental snort. ::You seem like such a natural. I should do better background checks.::

There was a pause while he reached out.

::I am capable of manipulating the other ship, if you are actually capable of parking this one.::

::No gravity, no real heft to it. I'm psi. I move things with my mind. It's what we do. I can get it stable and in position so you only have one thing to worry about.::

He let his eyes close, leaning back on the spot she'd let him take. He wasn't asleep (or dead), since he kept speaking to her.

::Or I can continue to sit here and let you do all the work. Since you're so good at this and all.::

::I'm everything.:: Might have been another sarcastic tease, might be the truth.

He didn't know what he was, only what he could do. And he could adjust the bay doors without trouble, also checking on other possible leaks while he was at it.

::How many times you take people off world and tote them around space anyway? Doors clear. Because I'm thinking it's not often. Secondary airlock leak repaired. You don't seem the type.::

::Very reassuring. How's the air? Besides stale and thin.:: He cracked an eye and watched her step out before letting his head fall back again.

::I fold up easy. Usually I get packed up as cargo. Make life easier and means I can get moved around without trouble.::

Looking at her hand, he shook his head and levered himself up out of the pod. He wasn't very tall, which likely helped the whole 'cargo' thing, and moved as though he was going to throw up or break at any moment.

::Cheap entertainment. Better than staring at the walls of a box.:: He tried to bite back a cough of his own.

::Food is still new.:: Solid food anyway.

::Is this the part where I tell you a name?:: There's the soft clink of metal as he moves things around, getting a feel for the place without being too intrusive. He's learning!

::A-22114. Avan.:: A mental shrug. ::And I like my life, thanks. Boxes aren't creepy when you're trying to keep a low profile.::

::Perhaps it's slipped your notice. I'm not exactly in the best of shape. Running is a bit hard, fast or otherwise.::

::Don't know you well enough to tell you why. It's esdier though.::

He watches her a moment. ::You were more interesting than watching another group of people beat the hell out of each other.::

He doesn't put much effort into moving, not interested in expending the energy, and watches her instead.

::Part of the solid food being new means I have no preferences. Pick something and I'll try to digest it.::
