Haruko laughed at Sam's muttered comment and shook his head. He himself loved the be outside in the nature, feeling the wind in his hair and the warm sun on his face. The fresh smell of the world never failed to cheer him up and give him strenght, and as they were always travelling with spaceships, they rarely saw any sort of nature for months on end which could be quite depressing at times. Always being locked up in the ship... But alas, that was the life they had chosen and it often was quite interesting, so he really shouldn't complain.

They got up from their place on the grass and started looking for something to eat. Haruko swallowed a comment about having said so before, but couldn't hide his smirk when Sam agreed to look for fruits instead. If he was honest, he was childishly happy to be getting his fruits after all, but tried to hide his beaming smile as much as possible, it was rather embarrassing after all.
He walked over to the bush Sam had pointed out and pulled of one of the apples, sniffing slightly at it. It really did smell quite sweet and he took a small bite of it. "You're right." he agreed. "They are delicious!" Haruko bit into the fruit again, sticky juice running down his chin, though he didn't care. He was just glad that they could finally have something to eat and something so nice made it even better. He moved closer to the fire, as the air had cooled considerably since this morning and rubbed his hands together.

Haruko was slightly startled at Sam's question regarding his family, and looked thoughtfully at the other boy. He usually didn't talk much about his family, not because something bad had happened to him in his childhood or anything like that, but for the simple reason that he didn't know what to tell others. "There isn't really much to tell you, Sam. My parents died when I was ... " he thought back to what he had been told as he could barely remember the incident, "four, I think..." He shook his head. "Anyway, they were part of a crew of a spaceship as well and when they died and I was given to Lucian, he was the ship doctor there and he raised me till I was fourteen and then I joined your father's crew to be trained in medicine as well." Haruko's expression was a bit sad, as he just now noticed how long it had been since he had last seen his foster-father. Lucian was not really the father type, more like a mentor, but Haruko cared much for him as he was the only family he had left.
"What about your family, Sam?" he asked the other boy, "Do you have any family besides your father?"
