"I'm restricted to only three hours off per day. It's been a very long time since I was allowed time off," Nass looked down at his clarinet and sighed. "I'm afraid even visitation is impossible." Nass looks a little hurt by pouring all of this out.

Katar nodded at the statement.
"I know all to well what it is like to be tied up in your work to the point you don't seem to have time for yourself." She said quietly
She looked down at teh clarinet in Nass's hands. She erached over adn genlty put a finger under Nass's chin, lifting it up. She looked into his eyes and smiled.
"The important thing is to know you have kept yourslef together, despite your work." SHE said gently. "Nass, i know you are a very busy worker and you seem to have gone through a lot of pain in your life, but i can see you still keep your heart warm with hope and are genuinely looking for that spark that was taken from you."
SHE gently rubbed her hand up to his cheek, stroking.
"I don't know when you are due back on shift, but perhaps we can spend more time together before i have to leave." SHe said soothingly. "Even after i leave, i will probably keep coming back here adn we can see each other at leat then. Then perhaps down teh road a little ways, you might get someone else in the Tower and you can come see my planet then."
Seh gently reaches down and picks up the clarinet holding it awkwardly in her hands, looking at it.
"How do you play something like this?" SHe asked looking at him, confused. "It is different than our Wind Flutes."
"His eyes hold so much feelings, it is as if he is afriad to show it." She thinks as she waits for Nass/s reply.
"If it were all that easy," Nass looked down at the clarinet and put his own hands on Katars'. "Then I would do just that, but there is too much going on in this war at the moment for them to get replacement staff."
He pushes Katar's fingers along the clarinet as though he is showing her how to play it. "It is hard to explain in words on how to play it, but it is a wonderful instrument to be skilled at."
"I'd be more than happy too," he shows Katar the balcony, where there is a magnificent view of the city and the countryside beyond. The military railway can be seen winding its way through the valleys, and beyond the country are mountains stretching into the very heavens.
"Just take a look, Katar," Nass murmurs. "All of that is the original Genus. A paradise of a planet with a metropolis placed in the very heart of it. From her you can see every single landmark from The Statue of Terra to Sol Averys' Meeting Hall."
"Indeed so, the noise is a bit much, but you get used to it," Nass answered. "There's not much to be said about Sol Avery. He was an entertainer, used to throw concerts for troops during the last war. After the war, he bought up the hall for his own concerts, but people were starting to go to the newly-built cinemas across Capital City, and he died alone with his hall being used for meetings and so-forth."
He pointed down to a small cavern on the outskirts with an iron gate outside. "In there is the Statue of Terra, and that's worth looking at."
"The bars are a part of its' story," Nass answered. "The whole thing is part of a legend that was more or less true."
Nass changed his position on the balcony before starting the story.
"Back in the Ancient Capionian times, Terra was a goddess very much in love with a warrior called Gerfedius. Gerfedius loved Terra with the equal amount of love, but the Darker Mortal kidnapped Terra in an effort to wipe out Gerfedius, for he was champion gladiator at this time. In an effort to save her love, Terra used her powers to destroy the Darker Mortal, but the result turned her to stone. Gerfedius tried to cut his beloved free, but the curse meant that he too had turned to stone. That is why there are iron bars placed around the couple to stop others from turning to stone."
He looks at Katar as she looks down at the Statue. "Terra was a beautiful woman," Nass announces. "But her beauty is rivalled by your own, Katar. Forgive me for saying such things, but, I do believe that I love you."
"It was a feeling that was on my mind," Nass blushed as Katar kissed him. "When I first saw you in Genus Control, I thought that heaven was missing an angel. If you ever need someone to be there for you, Katar. Even if it does involve me breaking regulations for a friend, I'll always be there for you."
Quivering slightly, he leaned over gently and planted a kiss on Katars' lips.
