The intruder's actions took Katya by surprise momentarily. Internally, she scolded herself for being unaware of the intruder before he could make himself obvious. After all, wasn't that a proper use of telepathy? She frowned at the stranger.
"Don't move a muscle?" she asked him. The ditsy tone she'd used when pretending to be Merideth Haver was gone, replaced by an icy edge of displeasure and deadliness. "I'm sorry, but you interrupted business. Forgive me if I'm more than a little displeased at this. If you don't take your weapon away from Diath's neck, I'll do it for you..."
Angling her head to one side, she added, "And keep in mind, I can do so without moving a muscle... therefore still obeying your terms."
