Her mouth dropped open slightly, surprised he was actually there. Faye nodded and shook her head simultaneously before chuckling and throwing her hands out to the side. =/\=I’m okay. Just…=/\= What were the words that could convey any of it. =/\=Just emotional. There’s been a lot of that lately. A lot of up and down and very little in between. I keep waiting for equilibrium, but so much has changed that I’m not sure sure I’d even know if I hit it fully. But I just watched your message and I needed to talk to you. Kind of as if I needed to make sure it was real. If that makes sense?=/\= She shook her head in amusement decidedly unsurprised if it didn’t given that it barely made sense to her.

The concern on his face left for the most part, replaced by a wide grin, and he chuckled softly. =/\= It does make sense. And yeah, Faye… it was real. And I meant every word. Of that you should not have a doubt. =/\=

She wiped at her cheeks, drying the residual of the tears and once again shook her head. =/\=No, I don’t doubt it,=/\= she said more softly. =/\=I guess… I guess I’m still getting used to people not just saying what they mean, but…=/\= Again she ran out of words, not sure how to phrase it.

With a deep inhale, Faye steadied herself and propped her elbow on the desk, resting her chin in her hand. =/\=Anyway, be forewarned that I’m a bit of a rambling mess at this moment. =/\= Now that she had him there in front of her to speak to it was as if all her words had vanished.

=/\= Faye, you’re a bit of a rambler no matter what, so I don’t need the warning. =/\= and he chuckled. He looked at the screen and traced a line down the image with a finger, his smile softening. =/\= It’s really good to see you, Faye.=/\= and he sighed a bit before seeming to catch himself. =/\= So, uh… how’s the mushroom house coming along? And I’m glad you got the package. I know you are going to love it when it… grows? Sprouts? Germinates? I have no idea what mushroom do. =/\= and he laughed softly.

Hammor, Ops Chief, USS Athena

She liked his laugh. It was warm and cozy, like wrapping yourself in a blanket. She responded with a wide smile. =/\=They fruit. The part of fungi that we can see is actually the fruit,=/\= she told him.

=/\=But the house is coming along, The main structure is up and the the beds will start being put together tomorrow. Depending on everyone’s shifts and workload, we might be able to get them filled before end of day. But we have to go through the composting and prep phases of the cultivation cycle to make sure the growing medium is exactly right before we can start the spawning phase.” The excitement in her eyes grew. “You know, this is the first time I myself have ever been a part of a cultivation project before. Back on Tracken we just gathered them when they were in season, and once I worked a place where they had their own cultivation centre, but I was never a part of it. So I’m really looking forward to this. Nice to have something new but also… low stakes to try out. My more recent experimenting has not been as low stakes as it should have been and it didn’t go ever very well. So mushrooms it is,=/\= she said with a laugh, though an edge had formed to her voice.
