Tanara didn't even bother looking at the monitor. "It is my sister."
She stood and headed out. When she reached Elaina, the two women embraced.
"Somebody told me you'd be here," Elaina whispered. Tanara nodded, her face emotionless. Then, Elaina caught a glimpse of Tanara's arm and her face paled.
"What happened to you?" she demanded. Tanara smiled briefly.
"I lost an arm, so what?" she answered. It was at this point that Kira managed to regain control over Elaina. Her face paled even more and her eyes faded. Tanara noticed the difference and sighed.
"We have a lot to talk about," she said. "Did you come unarmed?"
"The ship ate my weapons," Kira answered, doing her best to sound like Elaina. She smiled slightly. Tanara nodded, not fooled for an instant. She turned back to the ship.
"Release my sister's weapons," she said. "We're going for a walk and I don't want her to be unarmed."
