Gaia was one to always look for a challenge wherever she could find one. Without a challenge, or without Lucretia around, Gaia would grow bored far too easily, and when she was bored, things tended to get ugly. Even though Lucretia wasn't in this world, she was able to find enough challenge in learning about the things she'd missed in the jump in time she'd made. It provided enough of a challenge to keep her occupied most of the time.
When Galen mentioned the word galaxy, Gaia blinked a bit. While she had properly digested the fact people came from all different times and places here, she was still trying to get her mind around the fact the Earth was not the only planet in the universe, and that there were things called galaxies. Gaia hadn't exactly read in depth about that, merely glanced over it. She was far more interested in reading the history of Earth that she'd missed. So galaxy was still a completely new term to her, but she had a sense of what it meant. "Good, I would not wish to encounter them," she replied with a smile. Then as he explained about the meditation, she nodded a bit in understanding. It made sense, really.
After they both were inside the apartment, she closed the door, then turned and watched as Galen took in the sights of her apartment. She smiled. "Gratitude, though I plan to decorate it more to my tastes when I can get the coin for it." Oh she had plans to Romanize her room as much as she could. And it infuriated her to no end that she didn't have the coin to do it. Crossing over to the couch, she sat down and crossed her legs. The skirt of the dress she wore was shorter, allowing her to show off her long, lean legs in all their glory. "Sit," she offered, gazing at Galen and wondering where he would choose to sit.
