Readying a conversation

The door to the room Vol-Kur was in slid open. "I see you're awake," a female voice said "Oh you do that too," she said referring to him sitting in a meditation position. "Look the Captain is going to want to talk to you. So can we just be calm and all get along for a minute. We just escaped near death for the second time today and I'd like a break." she told him. "He said if you cooperate we can give you something to help you get your senses back."

Beryl paused a moment. "I bet you are hungry. Here." she said tossing a small plastic packet with a little twist off nozzle on top. "I don't know if they had this in your time but its a food packet. That kind is pretty sweet so go slow." she said. The packets contents were basically jellied fruit pie filling but packed with calories and vitamins. "We're short on supplies so it's all we have, sorry. When you are ready I'll take you to the Captain."
