"Now that I'm no longer otherwise occupied," Astra says to Sigin, her eyes
dangerously, "may I make
a couple of points? The 'rather busty friend' would prefer that people
referred to her
by her name. And she is quite capable of dealing with any unwanted
attentions from your
crew, thank you." Astra taps the dagger-sheath that she wears at her
belt. "I may have seven babies
in tow, but I have not forgotten how to use a weapon if need be. Make sure
your crew knows that."
I'm sorry if I gave offence, Astra," says Sigin. "I'm afraid that in the circles in which I mostly move nowadays, the speech tends rather towards the uncouth. And I must confess to having momentarily forgotten about your prowess as a warrior, as it came out in Synizn's explanation of this mission." "OK, let's consider the matter closed," says Astra. "And at least you didn't say 'remarkably busty friend' as you might have!" Sigin chuckles at that, and the brief tension is dispersed.
