Dee felt torn as she watched Sol leave the ship, his angry steps echoing on the walkway. She wished to both protect and provide guidance, but knew that Sol would accept neither. She felt a brief stimulus that she decided must be anger as she considered Xeea’s violation of Sol’s Integrity. Dee had only a brief moment to consider confronting Xeea, but just as quickly abandoned the notion. Though Xeea attempted to hide her emotions, her efforts were unsuccessful. Dee could see the turmoil of emotions that seemed to wash over her countenance – she recognized the telltale symptoms of organic regret. Instead, Dee went to the galley and began preparing Xeea’s favorite meal. She tried to forget that it was also a favorite of Sol’s.
