"I have no idea, Miss White. How would I know?"

He's silent for a moment, staring off into space, and then scowls.

"Wait, why are you on this vessel? Who are you? I'm seeing things, aren't I?"

"Seeing what?"

*pauses*

"I'm still trying to figure out why I got here. I can't seem to remember specifics about my past or how I ended up on the ship"

"You're not real. Something weird is going on, and its got something to do with our minds. Or my mind. Not remembering how I got into that elevator is part of it. The simplest conclusion is that something is wrong with my head, and that I probably won't remember talking to you in 10 minutes. Or I'll get better and you've been on the ship all along and I'll remember that fact properly."

"Now, if you'll excuse me..."

"Okay... I'll leave you alone now." *returns to room*

assuming no interruptions and I get back to room...

*wonders if she recalled enough about the older gentleman with skin almost as white as his hair to query the computer*

"Computer do you know if anyone has damaged their sleeping pod recently?"

Having talked with him, she has a record of exactly who the man is. Kaden Hall is from El Paso Texas, is 163 years old, and on the ship as a xenobotanist specializing in fluid transportation mechanisms. He has 4 PhD's and has lectured at both Berkley and Oxford, along with other major universities. What else does she want to know about him.

The computer says it tracks damage to sleeping pods, but won't say more.

(ah I hadn't realized it was someone she had already met... guess I overlooked an earlier description? Or is this resurfacing memory...)

"Would you be able to tell me when Kaden Hall is free to speak?"

(do I know that 163 is a long time to live?)

(OCC: oh, I mixed up purple robe and white skin. You haven't talked to Kaden... yet).

Olive thinks she remembers the white skinned man well enough to do a search. This one is harder though. She knows he's male, she knows the skin and hair color, and as she thinks about it she thinks the sleep schedule might be useful.

The search takes longer, as she doesn't get nearly as lucky this time and see him in the first few pictures. She does find him though: Kaden Hall. The System Access Unit Sends off a message to Kaden.

She's never met anyone 163 years old. Unless you count... no, she can't remember that. She remembers that most people die before 100. But she's met exceptions. But there was something special about those exceptions.

While awaiting a response from Kaden, will resume studying for her certification, at least until the medical staff is done their vacation.
