"A request will be sufficient," nods David, "if it's accompanied by a good enough reason. I understand that you appreciate her company, but she's perfectly safe where she is now - how does it benefit the colony to have her awake now instead of, say, a month or six months from now?"


Arkady looks at him for a few seconds, then nods. "That is a fair question. I am thinking she would be a good student for the woodsman the Elene Church will be sending us; she has always had a knack for bringing home the most mushrooms and berries in our parish when we went out for picking days. And she is a professional teacher; whatever she is learning from him she can pass along to the rest of us." He looks off towards the forest, then adds: "She can shoot. She was a Pioneer. She won't need a guard." Then he looks back at David and grins a bit. "And if I am dying out there playing 'ambassador' before she is woken up? Then you will be the one to tell her, not me."

When Arkday and David are finished, Roger catches up to David.

"So, the camera script was triggered. But the video footage is all black. Do you know what caused that to happen?"

Felix grabs a a few gaming handhelds and some portable solar battery recharging kits to keep them operating. When he gets a chance he'll spend some time digging around in the software of the games to translate the text to Elene.

When a chance is available, he'll talk to David about a possible delegation to Cimmura to try and convince Lycheas to support the Terran people and form a mercantile agreement to the benefit of both sides.

"Right. David nods in response to Arkady's point. "So, what I'm hearing is, the correct time to wake her up is very shortly after the Elene woodsmen arrive?"

--------------

After his conversation with Arkady is finished (yes, there's a bit of time-twisting happening in this post) David can hear out Roger's story. "Let me guess," he says, "that was the day that Piper decided everything was a coatrack?"

--------------

Once his conversation with Roger is over (more time-twisting!) David is able to listen to Felix' suggestion.David agrees that such a delegation does sound like a good idea; but "Diplomacy isn't really my forte. Have you discussed this with Captain Argent?"

Once David is reassured that the initiative has the Captain's support, then it becomes a matter of mere logistics and organisation, which is David's forte. Given the current state of affairs, however, it is important that such a proposal should be presented to Lycheas by someone who (a) doesn't need an interpretation program on a tablet to speak the language, and (b) knows what's going on. Or, to put it in other words, this proposal is unlikely to go anywhere unless the Elene-speaking group presents it - at least the initial offer. Once it's been accepted in principle, the details can be handled by clerks with the translation software.

Arkady looks at him for a second, then asks "And who is going to be teaching her Elene before she wakes up? I am not thinking that being my wife means she will wake up knowing how. I am also thinking it would be better if she started learning it before their woodsman arrives, because he will not be knowing English or be chosen for his gift with languages."

"Piper did WHAT?"

He looks around to see if Pipe is still nearby.

"Communication will be an issue," nods David. "Is your wife particularly good with languages, that a couple of days of personal instruction will be substantially better than using the translation program on the tablets?"

Piper is easily found, looking up at Roger while holding onto his leg. She gives him a look of wide-eyed innocence.

"Piper, did you hang coats over all the security cameras?"
