An exploding ship?
Kai arched an eyebrow as he thought to himself while Teg's barrage of words in her response came out of almost nowhere. Most likely the rush of adrenaline from all the excitement. Humans brain patterns were erratic during times such as these, and the woman was not much different. She played it cool most of the time, but what came next certainly made the Ithlo question what he really knew about Teg at all.
She was stronger than her physique lead anyone to believe, catching Kai off guard as he found himself being pulled toward her. Much closer than he'd ever been to be sure, as Teg placed her hand on his shoulder before leading then both out into the corridor via a somewhat clumsy waltz of sorts. Awkward? Absolutely. But there were much worse situations he could be in than an impromptu dance with a human woman he was attracted to. For a split second, his rigid frame kept about secure as a steel pillar, but quick calculations to keep time -as best he could with one who was a bit off her timing- their movements eventually aligned about mid-way into the main corridor. Teg's smirk and otherwise silly laugh brought a smile to the Ithlo, realizing just how much fun she was having. Was is at his expense? Perhaps. But he didn't care. She deserved the release, as short-lived as it was.
Kai bowed in kind, keeping his eyes locked on the other until contact was broken a moment later as Teg began to head down the corridor toward the engine room. For those brief few moments, it was as though no one else in the galaxy even existed. A brief few moments that the Ithlo would cherish, no matter how insignificant it may have seemed.
“So I gather you have had experience with explosives such as the ones mentioned?” Kai fell into lockstep with Teg’s hurried pace, glancing down the lit corridor, another slight smile crossed his dark bluish lips with the thought of the previous scene.
