Re: The Cat: Rae and Kratos
Kratos surveyed her over his glass. "It means nothing." If he had wanted to say something, he would have said it. Or so he thought was obvious. Kratos did not say while he spoke; he thought, and then if he had something to say, he said it. He also did not wonder aloud. If there was something he wished to know, he asked it, and he prided himself on the concept of not asking to know unless he needed to know.
It was a concept that was continually being tested in this place. Mimir had told him once that his interest in itself could be a message, but that had made only moderate sense to him. Kratos did not speak to make people comfortable. He did not believe people, as a whole, were meant to be comfortable. It was not a natural state.
Her knowing smile perhaps should have irritated him, but it did not. He smiled too. Very, very slightly.
"If you do not know, then you do not know that you are not," he said, logically.
