Ema is speechless, her mind tripping over itself, unsure what to think. One thing she knows, though, is that this Kraus girl seems to know her stuff, and would certainly be a massive boon to getting her out of this slump. It would be a waste for her to join the grounpounders in the meatgrinder. More than anything, it would just be nice to have someone to talk to in the science department, even if she does seem a little touched in the head...
“Uuuh, well, I think you have to be recommended to the regular army by an officer. How about you join as my assistant, until I can give you word to become a proper part of The Terrible Children?”
She made it up on the spot, she actually had no idea how a regular soldier came to join the ranks of the riflemen. But Kraus seemed to buy it. She smiles, and motions to follow her to the CO's tent.
She feels a sudden pang in her gut as she thinks lately how resistant Iceheart has been to her medication. Worse yet, with so much work to do about the new recruits, and assaulting the floating Islands, she hadn't had the time to properly attend to her mistress. Chances are, her mistress hadn't taken that time to attend to herself, either.
Her fear is realized before her eyes, as she steps into the tent, seeing her CO slumped over the desk
“Gods! Kraus, go get help, or help me, or do something!” she spits out in a panic, running over to try and help the collapsed woman
