“A glass of water with a little bit of lemon juice would be nice, thank you,” Kiama replied with a warm smile as she sat down in one of the armchairs. While she waited for Sair to join her, Kiama continued to let her gaze wander around the room. Though of course as always she used all her senses and the upbeat emotions she was sensing from Sair were very contagious. In the best way possible.

Joining Kiama with water in hand, she set the glass down and settled to the other armchair, a long sip allowing her relax. “So, what brings you in today?” Sair asked simply a light smile on her face.

Taking the glass, Kiama took a sip to give herself a moment to decide to answer that question in a way that made the most sense. With her back as perfectly straight as always and her legs crossed at the ankle with her feet placed to the right of the armchair, she settled the glass down on her lap. Still holding onto it with her left hand. In the end she decided to with the shortest and simplest way to answer Sair’s question and said, “A lot has happened since I came here about two years ago. I’ve talked about it with my friends aboard. Especially with Faye Calloway. And she and the Captain also got a glimpse, or two, into the .. baggage I come with. In the form of the relationship with my family. My mother in particular.” Wrinkling her nose a little, she added, “The Captain actually had the misfortune to meet my mother shortly after we arrived at Event Horizon after our last mission. And well, let’s just say that didn’t go terribly well.”

For a moment Sair just mused to herself that Calloway seemed far more social than her file would indicate but she let that thought go to focus on Kiama. “Tell me about that,” she said simply. She was going to let things flow and see where Naim took them and she would prompt things as needed.

“The encounter between the Captain and my mother? My time so far on the Manhattan? Or …?” Kiama asked and then added a little awkwardly, “I’m sorry. The only times I have talked to a counsellor were during evaluations at the Academy and then my boarding evaluation when I came here. So this is new to me and I’m feeling oddly … uncertain.”

~Lt. Cmdr. Naim, CSO

Sair gave a relaxed smile. “It’s fine. We’re learning this together, after all. I’m new here too, so it’s going to take time to get to know each other and how to interpret what the others says.”

“Tell me about the incident with your mother,” Sair clarified.
