Si’Rek chuckled. The safety rail and distance between the shaft opening and the core itself was far too wide. “Not without special equipment. And you don’t have that, so right now you will just have to look. But… I can show you what the crystals that are inside look like. Would you like to see?”

Si’Rek, CE

Liara looked a little disappointed, but then nodded, “Yes, please. I’d like to see them.” Turning around she looked up at Si’Rek and suddenly asked, “You knew mama Leni really well, didn’t you? Mummy often tells me about her. She shows me pictures and videos too. Can you tell me about her as well?”

Si’Rek looked down and a bittersweet smile found his lips. “Indeed I did, little one. I knew her even before your mother did.” Strong arms picked her up and settled her on his hip as he turned away from the core and headed back towards his office.

The moment Si’Rek picked her up, Liara wrapped her arms and legs around him and nestled close to him. Even though they hadn’t met often in person, she had always felt safe with him.

“You mother Leni had the same job I do now… she was an Engineer like I am. And a very good one at that. In fact, that tricorder I gave you? That belonged to her. I thought you should have it. I think she would have liked that.”

“Really?” Liara asked softly, her eyes wide. “It was hers?”

They walked into his office and he set her in a chair. “Now… what would you like to know about her?”

Si’Rek, CE

For a few moments the little girl was silent and just looked at Si’Rek. Though considering how unfocused her expression was, she wasn’t probably seeing him. Eventually she said, “I know that she was an engineer. And mummy always says that she was funny and smart and had a really big heart. That she was really excited for me to be born and that she loved me even when I was still in mummy’s belly. What do you remember? What did you like about her? I want to know everything you can tell me. Please? Talking about her makes mummy so sad, but I want to know her.” Her eyes were wide as she looked up at Si’Rek. There was a seriousness and even a sadness about her that made her seem older than she was.
