Tul grinned from his place in bed. "Hey, beauty, how's it going?"
"Tul, shut up" Karia said. "The medic said you wanted to talk so talk"
"Hey" Tul pasted a hurt expression over his features "But he was right" Tul effortlessly changed to serious. "Captain, something's wrong"
"Something you know?"
"I sort of just 'feel' it. I don't know"
Karia's gaze hardened slightly "Just a feeling? Tul, I can't do anything on your word"
"I know but I thought that either you or Darren should..." Tul trailed off his gaze landing on Karia's newly acquired dogtags. "Now, lovely, I don't remember seeing those on you before"
Karia felt like slapping him. But she restrained herself.
"Who'd you get them from?"
"My brother they just arrived today" Karia foudn herself thanking Hilvern that Tul didn't know about her familial relationships.
