Chell laughed, “Not at all! I found her nibbling at my feet this morning.”
At Thorn’s look of dismay, Chell quickly continued, “No, it’s fine! Actually…considering Piper’s usual methods of rousing me in the morning, Rose’s was the most gentle wake up call I’ve ever gotten!”
Rose chirped happily in agreement and shuffled closer to Thorn.
“In any case, I don’t think she’s afraid of me anymore. We seem to be getting along pretty well; we had breakfast together. So she’s definitely already eaten. I’d wager she’s eaten enough for several headcrabs, actually.” She smirked at the little creature, who seemed to perk up at the mention of “eating.”
“So! What have you been up to this morning?”
