Cori laughed openly. “Royal, I am the Universal Translator. Brogue it up all you want, it’ll be all good with m,” she said with a cheeky grin as she got to her feet.
Pulling a crate over in front of the sofa, she then resettled, kicking her feet up on the crate and crossing them at the ankles. “Tell me something no one knows about you.”
He paused with a bite halfway to his mouth and cast a side-eye glance at her. “Ohhh… ye crossin’ inta dangerous territory, lass.” and he smiled and took the bite and then pondered the question seriously. Slowly chewing, he thought back and then an answer flashed into the forefront of his mind. Slowly finishing the bite and swallowing, he nodded to himself and said “Okay… okay…” and then turned to face her. “Somethin’ not a single living soul knows… I didn’t even know until I had to that damn DNA sequencing section in the Organic Chem lab of year two at the Academy.” and he took a breath and visibly steeled himself.
“Oh yeah?” she asked curiously, her attention firmly fixed on him.
Looking at Cori, his face grew serious and he said “So… my DNA… when I ran it… it showed that I am… well… not entirely human.” and he looked at her to see her reaction.
Dalton blinked. Then her feet dropped back to the floor and she turned himself to face him, tucking one foot on the sofa under her other thigh. “Uhhh, okay? So… why do I get the feeling we’re not just talking about some long-forgotten ancestor? Or are we?”
