A small, kind smile stretched the lips of the Je'daii Teacher as she saw Emmie pick up the menu. The Zelosian was sure that the whole concept of choosing was not very familiar to her, Esis wanted to change that. Everything in life is a choice. Sometimes there are always worse options than the current one, which is when people felt like they didn't really have the power to decide. But in the end, options could always be found, in one way or the other.
As a future Je'daii, it was important that Emmie learnt this. Nothing would be forced upon her by the members of the Order, she herself would have to find the will, the desire to follow down one of the many paths the Je'daii offered. She'd have to discern between what was for her and what she'd rather leave behind. Her past had robbed her of her freewill, it was time it was given back to her.
The quick reflexes of the Zelosian had her reacting immediately to the sound of Emmie's name over the PA. The announcement came as a surprise, albeit a very good one! Esis turned her gaze back to the child, a bright smile adorning her lips, reaching her eyes too. But she didn't find the same sentiment in Emmie. She seemed slightly worried, if her perception did not fail her.
"Sweetie, you've won a GenPal! We can go to Guest Services Desk at the ninth floor and you'll be able to pick a pet." She explained. This was very good news. A pet would help her built a sense of responsibility, confidence and affection. In truth, she was hoping to coax her into taking one of her liking home from the very beginning. "Would you like to go there right now, or after we eat? Either is okay, snowflake." The smile on her lips seemed to be unmovable today.
