Raina glances at Star, concerned by the expression on her face, or lack of one. Her head is slightly bowed, her eyes changing only subtly and she is so still. Raina can feel that there is more going on under the surface than meets the eye. She catches Gunnaar's attention and he looks almost worried. Raina moves from Eriks side to Star and lets her hand slide around Stars shoulders and rest on her arm. The physical connection leads to the empathic one.
