Re: Cristiano & Addie
The hug was a little wet, seeing as he hadn't exactly dried himself off after hauling himself from the river. Still, Cris hugged her with his bearish might. It definitely felt nice to meet family and while the island--or the space station--liked to play it's games he would not turn down the company. Talking with Rohan about the future of the mercolony gave him hope, although he realized he would likely not live to see that time.
"A good thing!" Cristiano agreed with a nod as he pulled away. "It feels a little more like the island sitting here like this." His fin whacked the surface pointedly. "This place of metal is so....frightening for me," he told her, struggling to decide on the words to use. "I'm glad everyone is here."
