Orvos stepped inside and took in the surroundings. “Quite the blend of cultures,” he stated with a small grin. He imagined things would have been different here had Nico stayed. But the furry little guy was bound for great adventures away from the Athena.

“Comes with a blended marriage,” she said, grinning.

He then brought his gaze to her. “Just you here, or is Mr. Vander here too?” he inquired as he moved closer to the sofa.

“He’s out at the moment, though I expect he’ll be in soon.” Ghubari patted the sofa and set her PADD to the side. “Have a seat and tell me what I can do for you.”

Orvos hesitated for a brief moment, however decided in the end that they were both off duty. Friendliness was of the utmost essence. He took a seat next to her on the couch, keeping his eyes trained on her.

“It isn’t so much what you can do for me, but what I can do for you.” Without missing a beat, he continued. “If you don’t mind my asking, how close were you to Commander Adam Chryst?” He carefully watched her reactions allowing his empathy to catch whatever it could of her emotions.

A wave of emotion hit her rather strongly and it took a moment for her to catch her own surprise amidst the sadness. “Um… well, we were still getting to know each other, both in terms of our work relationship and who we are, were, off duty. We were quite open with each other, though I think we would have needed quite awhile longer serving together to fully learn to anticipate the other. Why?”

Orvos looked down at the table as he searched for his words. “I have noticed that since Mr. Chryst’s departure, there have been some reverberating feelings amongst the crew, as though a part of them has been lost. I suspect it has much to do with the transitioning of the timeline sync up. But a part of me can’t help but wonder if Adam had been a part of it, among others.”

He finally looked up and into her eyes. “I know I likely should have said so sooner, but there was never a time I felt it was necessary. He did not appear to be any sort of security threat, and the likelihood of anyone believing a new chief engineer of something absolutely crazy would have been astronomical to be fair. So I felt it was necessary for you to at least know now rather than never, that Commander Adam Chryst was technically never meant to be. He was, it seemed, to be a walking paradox.”
