Juni [pulling a jacket on]: I guess I lost my favorite coat in the tunnels. Meh. That really eats into my material budget.
Sam: Hrnh. Heading back out, hon?
Juni: Tamu and Sasha are waiting for me outstairs. Keep mom out of trouble.
Sam: Yes, ma'am.
Juni: Don’t even start gendering me, dear.
Sam: Hee. Sorry.
Juni [hugging Hira]: [Kajoshi] Okay, mom, I’m sorry about all this. I know there’s a good reason, though.
Hira: [Kajoshi] It had better be.
Juni: I’ve got a [Hiero]data node [Kajoshi]with me. Sam can show you how to call me if you need my help.
Juni [heading out the door]: [Hiero] Okay, you two, have fun. Stay out of trouble!
Sam and Hira (simultaneously): Okay, “mom.”
Hira: Maybe we can be friends.
