“You may call me Dinui or xi’Indrai if you wish, I only pull rank when there’s other higher officers around to insist on strict protocol.” She said lightly as she got him a glass of water and brought over the croissants to let him choose which he preferred. “Is this your first posting?”

  • Dinui xi’Indrai, Counselor

Riley accepted the glass with a nod and took a moment to select a croissant, holding it aloft briefly. “Thank you,” he said.

“Yes, my first assignment after my Academy cruise on the Challenger,” he answered the second question before taking a bite of the croissant. He looked around the room again as he chewed. This place is designed to relax, he thought.

“The Angel is much bigger than the Challenger was,” he laughed. “It’s an amazing opportunity.”

Dinui nodded as she settled into her own chair, “This is assignment is indeed a wonderful opportunity.” She picked up her cup of french vanilla cappuccino, “Do you have any questions for me?” She asked lightly, though she wondered which point he would bring up.

  • Dinui xi’Indra, Counselor

Riley’s eyes widened and he quickly took a sip of water. I hate this question! he thought, mentally kicking himself. And it’s her first off the bat.

“I… no?” he responded, holding the water glass in his lap with both hands. “At least I don’t think so.”

She had caught him off guard leading with the question. Is this a tactic? he wondered. Make me off balance so I’ll answer the next questions more easily? He had a history with counselors, so it wasn’t like he would withhold information. That wasn’t to his benefit.
