Amy scrambled into the centre of the bed.

And jumped again when she heard the voice - it sounded like nonsense, but there was clearly someone else in the next room, and she didn't think it was her partner.

She looked around the room in panic - while the centre of a bed was good defence as far as spiders and other creepy-crawlies were concerned, it probably wouldn't do much good against a person. She wished desperately that she was in her own RC, with all of Skeet's paranoid preparations - things like armoured dressing gowns and random clusters of hidden weapons didn't seem nearly so absurd now.

She strained her hearing as hard as possible, hoping that she wouldn't hear approaching footsteps.

((So yeah, Amy is fairly timid, particularly when surprised/disorientated like this, so she could be in there a while. While I don't want to dictate your actions to you, if you want the two of them to meet up any time soon, it'll probably have to be Gurnirel that instigates it.

And yeah, just writing around the language issue, at least until they get translators working, seems best. Maybe you could use different speech marks for Quenya, something "~like this~" perhaps?
