There's no particular reason today, that the boss seems...distracted at work. The office workers have enough sense to pick up on it, and both Specky and the elderly matron binome have caught Dot for a few brief moments looking at a jpg in her PDA.

It's an old jpg, the quality of the image is rather grainy, but the face in it could be an exact match for the boss's...if the skin weren't just a touch more yellow.

Appropriate, considering who has arranged for a little luncheon together today.

As if on cue, there's a soft knock on the office door, followed by the entrance of a familiar Game sprite.

"Hey, Dot."

AndrAIa nods, smiling at her sister-in-law as she watches her from just inside the doorway.

"Right. There's a place nearby that's pretty good."

"I'm sure the Diner will be just fine, it's still pretty popular, you know."

"Aside from a few severe mood swings, we've been really good. I don't think Matrix could be any more excited about the Alpha coming."

Absently, she lays a hand on her stomach, her voice soft.

"We're going to ask during the next appointment."

The Game sprite's walk slows to a stop, and she swallows thickly.

"Dot? Were you nervious when you were pregnant with Mairi?"

Frowning a little, AndrAIa begins fidgeting with the bracelets on her wrist.

"I feel terrified sometimes, that I can't do this." Fidget. "I didn't exactly have a normal childhood, if you recall."

AndrAIa leans into the touch, giving a watery sort of laugh.

"So do I. You and Bob and Mouse, you guys are the closest things I've ever had to parents, and even that didn't last for very long before the war."

She nods, drawing in a shaky breath.

"I'm just scared that maybe, I won't be good enough."

AndrAIa's hugging back as best as she can with the baby bump.

"You think so?"

The Game sprite smiles a small smile, hugging her mother figure turned sister-in-law.

"Thanks."

One last squeeze and Dot is released as they continue their walk to the restaurant.

"I think you'll like it, they have something like sushi at Milliways."
