The other was from Roh Javisk with an invite for her to a share another bottle of Scava when she got to the point of wanting to pull out her hair. Since she was there, she commed him and arranged for him to drop by in thirty minutes.
She used the time to get a quick shower and pull out the wine and some of the delicacies she kept for times like this when she needed to distract her mind. At exactly 30 minutes to the second her door chimed. She opened the door to a Roh with a smile that was too broad and a covered tray.
“They are insane,” she challenged him by way of greeting.
His smile grew even broader. “Good evening, Roh Ceeda. I am well this evening and you?”
She allowed her frown to ease as she hissed at him for reminding her of her manners. “Well thank you. Will you not please come in?” She turned and led the way to her dining table.
Following her in with the door closing behind him, he set the tray on the table, hand on the lid. “I bring you a delicacy from the galley! They have been all over themselves trying the latest and greatest dishes from all over the savage planet we seek our salvation from. This is now one of the most requested dishes.” With that he whipped the lid off. The steam lifting from the dish brought a smell that could only be listed as “different”. Not stomach turning but not “good”. On the tray were roughly oval balls of something. The outside was a slightly translucent white while the insides were a darker, ground substance. Each was about the size of her fist. Javisk put one each on two plates, setting one in front of Ceeda as she sat. She sat looking at it and him with mild levels of distrust as he opened the Scava and poured both of them a glass and sat down.
