Ears flicking from the sudden interaction, Jade turned looking away from her book for a moment, a soft smile spread on her lip, seeing the familiar face.
“Oh, It’s my would be hero from awhile ago, how’s the day treating you hmm?” she tilts her head closing up the book a finger keeping her place, she glanced at the hand on her shoulder then up to the Red haired Seeker.
Haxus had been relaxing in the common room, nothing more than taking a short break between assignments. His head was leaned back, eyes closed, but an ear flicked at the sound of footsteps… a bit heavier… likely either Hunk or Shiro. The accompanying pleasant scents of kitchen and tech told him that it was the Yellow Paladin, and Haxus let the other’s presence slide to the back of his mind as he began to drift again.
But he was quickly brought back to wakefulness by a hand on his head, giving a brief ruffle or scratch between his ears, and his eyes snapped open and his ears perked forward. It wasn’t unpleasant… just… completely unexpected. But the sensation stopped as Hunk walked past the back of the couch, and Haxus craned his neck to follow him with his eyes.
A grumble of “why’d you stop?” ALMOST escaped, but it was quickly replaced with a mumble of “…what was that for? And please don’t say “for free”, Lance ALWAYS says that if I ask that particular question.”
Ahmiid stood in thought, contemplating the war ahead. He sat in on the council meeting, providing insight about troop movements, offering advice when needed, and surveying which council members will require a conversation later to see eye-to-eye with his point of view. This was until he was jarred from his thoughts by a taloned hand ruffling his hair.
He spun with an incredulous look on his face to find Sha standing on a chair, hand outstretched, and a smile he could practically feel through the force. He frowned, and stepped back.
