Quite apparently summoned by Isis, both by the timing of her arrival and the way Isis paused and glanced at the door, Nalini entered.

“Hassidim is here and has been overseeing things because he fears you have not been taken care of properly and cook has prepared your favorite foods to tempt you, Kirin,” Nalini confirmed.
“Hassidim is here?” Kirin laughed, and clapped her hands as she glanced at Luc, chuckled and said, “Oh, he will hate your housing facilities, but oh well, there is no hope for it then for I must obey. Thankfully, I am starving.”
The door closed with a solid metallic thud behind the two women and Isis nearly hissed, “Anubis,” and nodded to her son, “hold the woman still. Help him, Ljluka,” she commanded, using the true form of her sons’ names.
