The dwarfess gave a long sigh as she walked down the nearly-endless hallway. One hand kept combing through the loose strands of hair on the side of her head, finding the motion soothing, especially if she let the touch linger. Her eyes were barely open as she walked, more focused on the floor in front of her than the Nemesis’ mountain-high ceilings.
It’d been a long night for her, she’d spent the whole evening doing nothing but thinking, and now that it was close to sunrise, she figured that a stroll around the flight deck might clear her head further.
Of course, she needed to be careful, or she just might walk into someone!
"Hello Kain," Jamie silently walks up beside her,"would you care for some company this morning?" He asks with hes usual wolfish grin. He studied her face for a moment, she looked tired "did you not sleep well?"
She jumped slightly as her son appeared next to her, her face whipping to face him. The breath she hadn’t even known she was holding in released from her, almost seeming relieved that it was him that startled her.
“‘Ello, Jamie,” she smiled lightly. It seemed as if she was even too tired to smile, but there was a brightness to her eyes as she greeted him, so maybe she wasn’t too sleep-deprived…
"I’d love some company, dear. I was just headin’ up to the deck. The air clears m’head, y’know?" She sighed, lifting her chin a little. "S’just…been a long night of thinkin’."
"This one could use some fresh air to help wake us up, were not used to being up this early" Soundwave had accidentally woken him up when he got ready for his work shift. Jamie hated sleeping alone so he hauled his but out of bed intent to fined a lap to sleep on.
The Cyborg gave her a sideways glance as they walk, sleep could wait, he would rather stay with the women he now thought of as his mother. It was weird how not to long ago he would have scoffed at the idea.
"What where ya thinking about? Was it your home?" he asked, probably none of his business, but he was nosey.
She chuckled softly, “I can see that,” and punctuated it with a playful ruffle of his hair. Her eyes crinkled; she was glad for his company. Out of everyone on the ship (most of which she’d avoided meeting somehow…?), Jamie was the one she most enjoyed seeing. Even if she were sleep-deprived and feeling the faint stirrings of need for a morning pick-me-up pulsing in the back of her head. Ah well, the boost could wait. The fresh air would do her more good anyhow.
Then again, just being in the company of her son was enough good to oust fresh air and coffee from the competition. They hadn’t even made it to the half-way point when Jamie crossed the finish line. Didn’t help that coffee could be a bit of a sore loser when it wanted to be (see above: pulsing head pain).
Chuckling again, she let her gaze rise to the mountain-high ceiling, the light fixtures overhead suddenly much more interesting than the path ahead. “Aye, to some degree. More of thinkin’ of…,” she paused here, a closed fist raising to her chin so she could thumb lightly at her beard. She was silent for a few moments before she looked at Jamie again, her fist falling back to her side.
"I was thinkin’ about the history of Cybertronians…the Autobot and Decepticon factions…it reminded me of the history of relations between Dwarves and Elves in my realm."
