Releasing her destructive power was already dangerous enough on its own but seeing Carter trying to get close to the edge of the Space Eater that she made certainly surprised her, though being "surprised" is more or less an understatement for her. Honestly? It scared her.
What if he was injured? What if it went out of her control again? Sure, she did it to demonstrate the nature of her powers but never for another person to observe it so closely. Regardless of one's strengths or skills, while Carter appeared unharmed, Verniy would approach him slowly, her expression still remained unchanged but a droplet of tear would be visible at one of her eyes and the tone of her voice was audibly worried."Please.. don't do that again.. It's dangerous.."
From that moment, her nose caught a whiff on the smell of.. muffins. The smell alone was enough to capture her attention from what had happened earlier ago, her eyes darting around the area before realizing that there was a basket filled with fragrant muffins - in fact, freshly baked as well. Her detection skills were sub-par and didn't notice whoever that placed the basket near the both of them but still, all she was able to do to bow lightly to thin air as a sign of gratitude.
To Verniy, muffins is considered as a type of premium delicacy to her since the environment she grew up didn't simply allow her to have the free time to enjoy delicacies like these. It was all to dedicate her effort in becoming a soldier, a reliable and powerful one for the Russian Government so that she can set out and fight for her motherland against those that opposes her people. Unlike most children, she didn't grow up with fun and sweets.
When Carter told her to enjoy the snacks they were kindly left with, she did with a little bit of hesitation. Sitting down on a Seiza position and her katana resting above her knees, both of her hands were holding a freshly baked muffin, her eyes were looking down on it with awe and somehow, she couldn't bear to eat it. It was a rare occasion and more importantly, it was one of the few times that she was able to eat with another person next to her.
She was eventually snapped out of it when Carter talked to her about her power, explaining how she should be able to use her thoughts to control it instead of a weapon to direct it."I've.. tried using my thoughts.. It doesn't want to listen to me.."
Freeing one of her hands from the muffin and lifted her hand in front of Carter, she would generate very weak Space Eater on top of her palm with small bits of psionic energy but it would audibly crack and snap, sometimes distort due to how unstable it is: showing Carter that even by small amounts, it is still very difficult to keep it stable without her weapon.
Hearing him exclaiming how tasty the muffins were shifted her attention back to the muffins, staring at it for a little while before taking a small nibble out of it.
Fragrant, sweet, chocolatey, a lot of different words flowed into her head after taking a nibble out of it. While she still can't physically express joy over how tasty it is, the aura around her was brimming with pure joy."Yes.. Great.."
While still quietly chewing over the small piece of muffin that she nibbled on, a thought came across her head about who this man is. Carter seemed.. knowledgeable but she didn't pry too much into it since he didn't mention anything else but his name. After all, every person has some things that they don't want to talk about, even herself."You are also.. very bright.."
If there was one thing she noticed about him, its that he is very.. bright. Not only the smart kind of bright but also.. his presence, blinding almost. She isn't exactly sure what his nature is but his presence gives off something similar to that of a light, like something's shining directly at your eyes but it is a comfortable kind of feeling.
