Rosario huffed a laugh under her breath at the first response, which was pretty much exactly the one she'd expected. The three blinking dots on the screen showed that Lyra was still typing, and Rosario kept half an eye on it as she headed out of the terminal.
When the final text did pop up, she winced, though only lightly. It was, in a weird way, a kind of touching show of loyalty on Lyra's part. Not that Archer was really her brother, except in the strictest biological sense. They hadn't grown up together, their lives couldn't have been more different. Archer was just some guy and none of them had known any better at the time, and Lyra wouldn't even think of going there now, so it was a non-issue. But Lyra was drunk and sounded like she was in need of reassurance, so Rosario shot off a quick reply.
