A'lo paused, "K'then, my sister has never even so much as looked at guys because she has duties elsewhere. Why would she have ignored her duty driven attitude now when it could cause so many more problems than ever before?" He clearly could see no other way. It was his twin, and she would NEVER place pleasure above duty.
However, when they entered the room, he nodded. "H'lee already told me that if I do anything to D'rick then it would result in me sharing in their punishment... but, I don't know how well I'll be able to hold back if I see him anytime soon," he admitted to his cousin before walking into the room and setting the plate down.
Gently he shook Artemis awake, "Arty, the foods here. And so is K'then," he told her in a soft voice.
The girl groaned in protest, but slowly opened her eyes.. more so when she realized that her cousin was there. "K'then? How come you're here?" she asked, realizing a second later how silly (and potentially stupid) that question was. After all, anyone who learned that their cousin was in the infirmary would likely want to see them and whatnot... the fact that her cousin was also a healer... well... it made it doubly certain that he could be in there!
