"Operator, Ordis wonders... what are you thinking about?"
The AI's voice echoed through the belly of the Liset and reverberated in the ears of the Mag sitting cross-legged on the floor near her arsenal. No response came back.
Her companion whimpered several times, coming close and barking, dancing on his toes as he enticed her to play.
She still didn't move.
The kubrow whined low in his throat and moved closer, pushing his head in between her folded arms so he could sniff her face.
"Einarr." she murmured, looking away, but he climbed over her and butted her firmly with his head, growling and pinning her.
The Tenno laughed quietly, then flipped him over and pinned him. "Later, puppy."
"I have noticed an absence of a particular Tenno in your missions of late, Operator. Has something happened?" Ordis continued.
"Yes, something has come up." the female voice muttered.
"Might I ask what?"
"I don't know." she breathed beneath the swirling constellations in her helmet.
