"I believe most people have made mistakes in their lives. Apologies that your life was a lie, but at least now you have found your new path?" It was true though, no one went without their mistakes. Gaia had made plenty in her own life, but she wouldn't admit to some of them. Some of them, in her opinion, were just miscalculations on her part.
It was amazing just when Gaia was able to have deep thoughts. Of course there were people that had such clarity while on a drug high, and usually Gaia's sharp mind wasn't completely clouded during such times. Then again, she also wasn't currently absolutely lusting after someone. Yes, she was finding Galen was catching her eye currently, but the feelings were no where near as intense as her lust for bedding Lucretia had been. Then again, she'd known Lucretia most of her life and she'd only just met Galen, so there was that aspect playing into it. While Gaia wasn't exactly sure about the circumstances under which Galen was describing the events leading up to his death, she understood the meaning behind it. And it only further painted him as wanting to be a noble type of person, pulling himself out of what he had been before. "Such nobility to lay down one's life for others. That act alone speaks volumes for the man you wish to become. Not everyone would do such a thing." Gaia would only do such a thing for Lucretia, and no one else.
When he told her to lead the way, Gaia grinned at him, then moved to stand beside him, linking her arm through his. "The gods must favor me today by this chance encounter with you." She rested her other hand on his arm, gently stroking it a bit. She then led the way over to the stairs. "I hope you do not mind taking the stairs. I am untrusting of that moving box," she said, glancing at the elevator.
