What To Do

It's been a few days since I last saw Kira; but I just can't get her out of my mind. Never have I ever had a women effect me like this before. I know that it has nothing to do with the sex because I can't remember past the kiss and the whisper in my ear. Coupled with her offer of wanting me to join her on her ship, really threw me.
What to do. I have my duty to Star Fleet and my career that I have worked so hard for all these years verses wanting to be happy and have a real life. I know the stats concerning marriage and Officers ending up in divorce.... it's not good.
When we leave Risa I know that we'll most likely be assigned a new mission and I need to be on my A-game when It comes to the Ship and the safety of her crew. A Chief Engineer has to put those things first above all else.
So I guess the best thing that I can do is move Kira to the back of my mind and be the Officer that I was meant to be. Maybe some day I can have both; Kira and a career in Star Fleet.
