Katara removed the necklace with the ring from around her neck and handed it back to Tetsuya. She said, "Here, you can have this back now. Thank you for your hospitality, Tia Sol'Aestesys," as she gently placed it in his hand. Despite the accommodating circumstances, Katara could have claimed the title Lyr'Aester much earlier, and in terms of her Imperial Rank, she had likely already outgrown it. However, that no longer mattered, given the new direction she was about to take. With Nira gone, a vacancy had opened up, and she had accepted the role even before they left the Kagami Galaxy. Her black and teal panel uniform, along with the insignia of the Yaducath Intelligence Agency and the five Imperial pins, spoke volumes about her new position.
Tetsuya replied, "You're welcome. I trust you will establish connections with the deputy director, though she's still on leave. About to give birth any day now." He nodded respectfully and added, "We've been stuck on this ship for quite a while. Are you absolutely certain that a five-day quarantine is necessary?"
Katara shrugged slightly, saying, "I didn't make the rule, but we can discuss modifying it once I officially take office. I can, however, see the benefits of it. It ensures that nothing harmful enters the general population and allows the ship's crew to bid a temporary farewell to their vessel. The ship itself has its own process to undergo." In reality, the Narsho would be nearly dismantled, with all the data collected in the Kikyo Sector carefully analyzed. This was done to ensure the safety of future Transuniversal missions.
Tetsuya chuckled and said, "I couldn't resist trying. Perhaps I could use my authority to override it. Uaeso would thank me, considering he's been pacing back and forth on the carpet, eager to leave the ship." He chuckled again and continued, "At least he was only gone for a few weeks. If it had been the full three months they projected, he'd probably have chewed through the hull by now," the Emperor remarked, amused as he thought of his son.
The Director smiled and remarked, "Our other son isn't much different, though in the opposite way. He relishes being as far from home as possible," subtly reminding him of his other children.
Tetsuya acknowledged her words with a nod and said, "You're right. I'll have to send him a message; there's a lot to catch up on. And we'll need more communication with the Yamataians if they genuinely want our help in their war. We'll have to work out some kind of formal renewed treaty. Also, I need to discuss Lynira's new role."
