Ruth smiles back and nods. "That's all good news, I am glad. I shall like to meet them, and Cheasadh too. With Asher, if possible." Maltrika gets her nose gently booped. "I don't think I've ever met Brinika, either, but Asher talks about her a lot. It's an opportunity to meet new people!"

At Reelshka's last statement, Ruth quite noticeably stiffens as though to keep from interfering, then relaxes so as not to trouble the baby. She decides not to pry. So she focuses on dangling the baby's toy over her, as play, but it's quite clear she wouldn't mind talking more about it.
