Abalia was already standing when Takehiko arrived, and despite her expression being as plain as ever, the atmosphere in the room was very clearly not a pleasant one. It was not so much that Abalia was incapable of hiding her emotions, but simply that, in her role as the Captain Commander, she felt it only right that she at least make some attempt to emote for the sake of her subordinates.

Perhaps motherhood had softened her just a bit.
