"Soo...um...Daisy and I..." he began but stopped as Daisy frowned.
"I mean just me...just I... whatever. So...I... I came up with the idea that we should maybe take another quick look before we report this to anyone else," said Harry. At this point, the tension finally drained from his face and he let out the breath that he had been holding.
"Ohh...why did you have to go through all that drama just to tell me that?" said Aria, rolling her eyes," but to answer that.... why? It’s not like it's going to change."
"I just need to double check," said Harry," yesterday I saw that they'd put in a new door and I just sort of lost it from the shock at that point. Having thought about it last night, I realized I didn't really analyze it properly. On the off changed they might've missed something. You never know. It could happen."
"I highly doubt that Harry."
"But I just want to get a second look. What if there is something? An impact like that would've done quite a bit of damage to what that door mounted on to."
"Hmm...if you really want to," said Aria. Better that he has a clear conscience or he won't stop worrying about it for at least five years.
"See I told you she would agree," said Daisy, joining in.
"I guess you're right as always," said Harry.
"Duh...how long is it going to take for you to realize that listening to my advice is always a good idea."
"Too long," said Harry.
"Well...now that you've spilled that out can we avoid awkward dinners in the future," said Aria, "I'd much rather get ten more hours of work that sit through another ten minutes of whatever that was earlier."
"I don't make promises that I can't keep," said Harry and returned to his food.
The end of their shift was approaching. They'd now fully removed the damaged wings of the ship which had cleared out a decent section of their work area. This meant their work was about a third of the way done. The next step would be getting through the hull of the ship and clearing out whatever was inside, which promised to be the most exciting. If the exterior of the ship was too burnt to reveal anything, the inside should certainly have something.
Before that however, they'd decided this was the perfect time for Harry to have his one final look at the door before they announced the news to the rest of camp. Aria had no belief it was going to reveal anything, but if was going to make Harry feel better, she wasn't going to stand in the way.
As Aria watched, she saw Harry going for a slightly risky move as he peered in very close to the door. It was dangerous, but she didn't move to stop him, knowing that the camera's pointed towards the door still blocked by the spaceship or too high up to pick up Harry just underneath them. She smiled at the thought. The aliens own tendency to put cameras out of human reach was coming back to bite them.
Harry appeared to be focusing mostly on the wiring that ran through the door, probably looking for flaws that could've developed from the crash. Aria had to give him credit for thinking of that. While the door was never going to have any flaws being brand new, the wiring system had to be the same. The time since the crash was nowhere near long enough to rewire an entire network like that. While the wires were tough, Aria had seen enough to know that very well, they'd never been hit by the force created by a crashing starfighter.
She squinted at the door, trying to make out what Harry was spending so much time looking at, but she could only make out the blurry outline of several streaks of bronze wiring. Harry seemed to be particularly interested with the strands that spread out from the center of the door. A smile appeared to be forming on his face. A smile. That might actually be good news. Oh dear if he actually finds a flaw he's not going to shut up about it for years. Oh well...seeing that smile on his face is worth being annoyed by him for the next five years.
