For Viv: Ingress visiting Mal in Herald Whites.

"It's been a long time," Mal starts off.

"Is six years really all that long?"

"It can be. I mean..." Mal is finally standing by this point, crossing the room to give Ingress a hug, lingering there appreciatively for just a second. "How long has it been since you graduated?"

"Only a few days. It's the first chance I have had to come to visit everyone."

A short nod, and Mal is concentrating more on Ingress' appearance and vestments than her response. "Look at you. All white and important." Even with still a sizable height difference over Ingress, Mal hasn't met the young woman's eyes again since he stood to meet her.

"...Is that...alright, Mal?"

"Hunh? Oh, shi a." He snaps out of his daze, offering an apologetic sort of grimace. "Duibuqi. You need to remember, I recollect building sandpeople with you on the beach -- hard to understand that and see you as..."

"Adult?" Ingress hazards.

"I was goin' to say responsible and law-abiding," Mal cracks a joke, but both of them know it's not worth much. After the laugh dies down, the man asks, "You stayin' safe? Do I have to have a conversation with a magic horse now elsewise?"

"Mal, I'm fine. Don't worry."

"You don't get a say in the matter."

Ingress reaches up and gives Mal a kiss on the cheek. With a knowing sort of smile, "You do your job; I'll do mine."
