Claudia was unusually quiet as she stared out over the ocean. The observation pod was floating out over the ocean, positioning itself. Chel glanced up at Claudia, noting that she looked very ashamed and maybe even slightly afraid. It was an unusual look on the normally hyperactive and vocal Kourwine.
“I just want to apologize for my rudeness since we met.” Claudia began speaking what sounded like an actual apology. “I decided I don’t want to be like the players who only see Lexx as a prize.” Claudia frowned. “I’m not like those other players. I just wanted him to like me.”
Chel listened quietly.
“Can you forgive me?” Claudia gave Chel a sad look, as though her happiness hinged on what Chel said.
