Kara stood with her hands clasped behind her back, in an attempt to remain as small as possible while Gabe searched for the papers. In case he needed to stroll by or get around her, she didn't want to be in the way. Once he pulled the paperwork out, she swung her hands around to retrieve the paper he'd surrendered and she scrolled over it carefully. He was meticulous and thorough, and she quite liked that. She needed thorough, doubling the eyes on things that needed a good once or twice-over. In Gabe's case, perhaps it was even more than that, given his charmed artifacts and ability to see things Kara missed. This was his area of expertise, after all.
The assessment was very well-written, clear and remained concise. It was an easy skim down the report, seeing the numbers in bold for each scenario listed. Two injuries, she knew she could deal with, but casualty? That word chilled her to the bone. Ideally, she wanted a scenario with ZERO listed on that chart, but she was realistic. She nodded, "You're right. I plan on leaving at least two here to make sure we aren't blindsided by any tricks pulled at home...but for the most part, we will make sure there is coverage on either side. As much as I don't like the word casualty, it's a term we have to know and get used to, going into all of this." She sighed, and brought her blue-green gaze to him, "Everyone going in knows the risks, and if they don't, well...they're going to."
But then, Kara wondered. Gabe was one of the only veteran players not out on the field when Bryden arrived a little over a week ago...and the question burned in her mind. "May I ask you something, Gabe?" Kara waited a beat, finding her redundancy in asking if she may ask a question a little obnoxious. "What are your thoughts on the Lucky Seven?" No beating around the bush, no dancing around it. She asked point blank because she expected an answer just as clear.
She didn't miss his query about the Felix...Kara would answer it, in due time.
