"You’re right. I don’t think anybody’s ready, really - not to be a cohesive team - but, as the Director said, ‘Ahgent Cah-rolahna, ah will make pahsonell decisions.’ It’s out of my hands - all I can do is give recommendations." She lapsed into the accent naturally; most people assumed this was because she mimicked him a lot - really, it was her natural accent, buuut they weren’t allowed to know that, so she let them make whatever assumptions they wanted.
"If you are, though, I’ll be sure to get you caught up. Nobody I work with is a burden; sometimes we just have to take a mission a bit slower to help them stay caught up, and in this case, it’s the whole team that needs to stay caught up."

She just hoped it would work out.
"It’s worrisome, but there isn’t much we can do until tomorrow, so… I’ll shoot you a comm if you’re on the roster." That was assuming he was in armor.

He listened intently, mind wandering a bit as she spoke to him, nodding his head along as he uttered out “yes ma’m” every other sentence.
When she finished, he glanced back up at her, “Uh, you aren’t gonna stay up late tonight?” He let his disappointment show through. He was excited to meat his teammate, and if that meant her going to bed earlier than him, he would just have to work around it.
"I mean..could we get together sometime." It sounded like he was just spilling the words before he thought of them. "For uh—- to get —training. No, uh…." Yeah, he was interested in her, but it was hard to get out. "So we can get to know each other more?"
