The Elder remains silent, but turns and walks over to Elite. They stare at each other for what feels like hours, but they suddenly butt heads with each other and laugh.
"So, Elite, this is the situation? Stuck here and I have to save you just like on Pai'ka?"
Elite gave the Elder a funny look, "You and I remember Pai'ka very differently.... Are you the only one to come, Elder?"
He nodded and replied, "For now, the others will be along in a few cycles."
