Despite her earlier excitement in meeting Daichi, Katie found herself somewhat at a lost for words once she finally met the other two members of their team. She blinked nervously, hoping she didn’t come across as too shy or desperate. Though thankfully the others did well in speaking in her place and the conversation carried on naturally after she shook Kirk’s hand.
The mammoth of a man spoke about the best foods to be offered on the menu and sung high praises of the restaurant. And to be honest, Katie couldn’t blame him. Despite having already eaten, the smells that permeated the tiny restaurant were enough to make her stomach growl anew all over again. During Kirk’s descriptions, she found herself staring at the menu between him and Daichi…
At least until Kay mentioned the reason they were all here. That had Katie’s attention snapped back to the matter at hand with some of the nervousness shaking off her form. “Yeah, if reporters followed us through the new Rift, that’d cause more problems for us to deal with. It’s better to let the professionals handle it before the public,” she said, grinning and pointing her thumb at her chest. It was meant to indicate that they were the professionals, in case no one caught the message.
Regardless, she perked up some more once Lizzie’s presence was mentioned; or lack of it. “Oh, actually, I have Lizz-er, Elise’s number. I can call her up to see what’s taking her so long.” Careful not to accidentally crackle her phone with her Attribute and risk embarrassing herself in front of everyone, Katie flipped out her mobile and dialed up Lizzie’s number. Hopefully the other girl wasn’t in trouble. “We briefly met a while back before this mission,” Katie quickly explained in case anyone wondered how she knew the missing girl.
