Several minutes later, Brad and Brian had arrived back at their condo. As they walked down the hall towards their door, they passed a communal sitting room that’s open to all of the people in the building. Sitting on 2 of the couches were Tiffany and Michael, as well as their mother, along with an unfamiliar dark-skinned human girl.
Girl: Ah? More?
Rachel: These are Brad and Brian, my eldest sons. Brad is the one on the left.
Before she could say anything else, the girl stood up and turned to face Brad and Brian.
Girl: My name is Misa Antacar. It is a good meeting.
After this somewhat odd greeting, she bowed, and then sat back down.
When it became obvious that Brad wasn’t going to say anything else, Misa continued.
Misa: Are you aware of a race called the Hasiq?
Tiffany: The Hasiq?
Rachel: Yes, they’re currently at war with the Muphridians.
Michael: On of their planets orbits Alpha Eurinda, the red star that is in the same system as this planet.
Misa: They are there?
Brad: Yes, they are at war with the Muphridians--
Brian: --and they do have a planet there.
Misa: I thank you. That is all.
Rachel: Why are you asking us about the Hasiq?
Misa: I am new to this area, and that is all.
She bowed to each of them, then turned and left.
While Brian said this quietly, the girl seemed to recognize it with a nod of the head as she walked, before disappearing past the door to the stairs.
Brad: Did she ask about anything else?
Rachel: No, all she said before you showed up was who she was. There wasn’t enough time to say much of anything else. Is there anything else?
Hmmm... short update. Maybe I should have combined it with "First Contact"...
