The Sevren’s had indeed moved up to Eela’s apartment and the family was currently playing on the patio, enjoying the always nice weather that they were unaccustomed to living in San Francisco. At the summons, Caridee frowned and moved swiftly to where she could answer the comm, which happened to be one of the small displays on the outer edge of the kitchen near the casual eating area. =/\=Governor Hyrushi, what can I do for you?=/\= she asked, her voice tinged with concern.

~Eela & Caridee

Kenzo was quiet a moment, just looking at her. Finally, he asked “Have you spoken to your mother this morning? Has she told you what happened earlier this morning?”

Kenzo

Caridee nodded. =/\=She called me after leaving the Ambassador’s residence.=/\= She shook her head. =/\=It’s terrible… devastating news, but also, the timing and everything else everyone is dealing with. How is she? I know if I ask I won’t likely get a straight answer right now, and I didn’t want to impose myself on her before she was ready.=/\=

~Caridee

“That is why I am calling you directly.” Kenzo said. “I do not think she is well, but I cannot tell if it is shock, depression, loss… I don’t know what it is. She isn’t feeling. And by that I do not mean she is numb. She is emotionless. And for a woman like her, whose emotions are her guiding path… it is concerning to me. I… we… need her at her best right now. And this isn’t her.”

Kenzo

Caridee almost jerked back, frowning deeply. =/\=Emotionless…=/\= She shook her head. =/\=You’re right, that doesn’t sound like her and I can understand why you’re concerned. How can I help? Did you want me to come by?=/\= There was only so much she could do with that bit of information but if her mother needed help, than they were best to get on that right away.

~Caridee

“I do. But you can expect your mother to not be happy I have called you.” He looked down and tapped a few commands into his computer. “I am sending your location to our internal transporter operator. They will beam you from your location to here. Just you, mind you. No one else. I will give you twenty minutes to get ready, and then I will meet you here. Please let me know if there is anything you need. And thank you, Ms. Sevren. I appreciate your assistance in this matter.”

Kenzo

Caridee nodded. =/\=I’ll be ready.=/\= The comm closed and Caridee went to go talk to Kian and gather what she needed.

Meanwhile, Eela was still sitting on the sofa in the same spot, gazing out at the same spot in the garden. Her juice sat on the table.

~Eela & Caridee

Kenzo walked out and found her. He looked at her, then the juice, and then back at her. “It does you no good in the glass. Drink. Now, please.” he said firmly.

It was a good solid two seconds before Eela seemed to register his words or even react. Then she simply reached over for the juice and took a sip.

“Caridee is on her way.” Kenzo said with a finality that was familiar. “She will be here in twenty minutes. When she arrives, I want you two to talk.” He crossed his arms on his chest, a very un-Kenzo like gesture for him, and said “I need you to be all you can, Eela. If that is hurt or angry or sad… we need you to feel it. Because that is how you do what you do. And neither of us has the luxury of being anything other than the best we can be under the circumstances. Not now. After.... after we can both fall apart for a bit. But now… there is simply far too much riding on the next few days.”

Kenzo

She turned her head and fixed her hazel eyes on him. “I don’t need a psychiatrist,” Eela said flatly. She sighed and sipped her juice.

“Everyone needs a psychiatrist at some point. You of all people should know that.” Kenzo said flatly.

Twenty minutes later, Caridee materialized in the Governor’s building. Much like she had been used to when she first arrived at her mother’s building, she was scanned, had her ID checked, bag scanned and searched and then was allowed to go up.

When she was let in, Caridee reached out her empathy to take in the tenor of the space. She could sense two people, other than the guards outside, and much as she anticipated, there was little in the way of detectable emotions. She extended her mind out to her mother’s, letting their familial bond reestablish connection. Caridee swallowed. No response. This was worse than she thought, and the Governor had bene right to be alarmed.

~Eela & Caridee

Kenzo looked up for a moment. “Welcome, Mrs. Sevren.” he said. “We are in the living room. Straight in past the kitchen.” He looked down at Eela and said softly “The fact that I spoke to her first is telling.” and he turned and put his hands behind his back to face Caridee.
