Kai smirked to herself as she eyed the device that Ithid clutched delicately, though protectively, between his fingers. His grasp appeared strong, but the blinking lights and multitude of buttons made the device too enticing to ignore. Besides, he was clearly distracted.
"You are incorrect!" Ithid was saying to Enon. "I know exactly what went wrong with my mushroom experiment. In fact, I did it on purpose!"
It would be simple to sneak behind Ithid and snatch that device. This time, Kai had every intention to keep the device to herself. Usually Ithid manages to chase her down and regain control of his device eventually, but she was determined to prevent that from happening again. It would only be fair, particularly considering yesterday's incident when Ithid knocked her ice cream cone onto the grass.
"Really? You wanted your precious green mushrooms to turn pink? Come on."
