Winne's eyes flit briefly around the room as the lights flickered. A seasoned journalist, the screams were less distracting and unnerving than they were simply disappointing. Everyone had heard rumors of horrifying prisoner treatment at the hands of the Aschen.

The food, however, was an unexpected and delightful surprise. Her ears worked to memorize the tidbits of information Marlene dropped in passing. A part of her suspected this was all show to intimidate her. To display Aschen prowess. The rest of her knew that the Aschen had no need for show. They had been a superpower across the Verse for most of her own lifetime, if not all.

Winne turned her beam from the food, to Marlene, to the sparkling water. She swooped it up and took a bird-like sip.

"We do our best to avoid disaster," The journalist said with a wink, eluding at the news being a constant parade of disasters. She placed the glass back and gave a gentle clearing of her throat. She also dropped the full force of the smile, fixating hungry eyes on Marlene. From her pocket she drew a small disc-like object. It was an audio recorder, once sleek in design but clearly had seen better days. She waited for the screams, and other sounds, to fully subside before activating the recorder.

Winne tapped a small round black pane and audio recorder emit a squeak. She briefly frowned, tapped it again, and it emit a gentle whirr. There we go. Her smile returned, and Winne aimed it yet again right at Marlene. Showtime.

"How long have you held office?"
