Weiss watched her sister over the rim of her teacup, the steam doing nothing to obscure the distinct impression that something was… off. She couldn’t put her finger on it, not quite, but it lurked just behind the woman’s eyes, like half of her attention lay somewhere miles away. She still seemed attentive to the conversation but… not, at the same time. A straight forward question rarely worked as well on the elder sister in comparison, so she’d need to ferret the answer out of her.
“How’s Mistral this time of year?” It seemed like work would be the most logical source of distraction for either of them, so she started there. “You’ve been assigned to that base for a while.”
“Ah, yes, though that might change soon,” Winter replied, offering a smile that verged on hopeful. “I’ve volunteered for reassignment to Vale to aid in the rebuilding efforts.”
“That’s wonderful!” She smiled. “Maybe then these tea dates wouldn’t be so sporadic.”
