    I think this is correct, because it tells the sequence at a more digestible pace, whereas the other write moves across the sequence at a sprinters pace. I think it should be slowed down ever further. Maybe:

    "Siri, turn the lights down," The bulbs dimmed as I turned to Missy who sat on the lounge chair. "Is that better?" I asked
    And even still I think it can still be slowed down further, I think it's a matter of increasing the word count in the sequence to better serve the complexities.
