{Deck 4 - Science Lab}

With Rayven being on the Bridge, for who knows how much longer, Heather had finished up her shift and gave instructions to her relief. Knowing that Jamie would be on the Bridge for quite awhile yet she decided to go and have a drink in the Lounge. Heather's day had gone well but she just needed a drink...a time out if you will.

{Deck 3 - Lounge}

When Heather entered the Lounge she looked around and saw Ensign Dubois sitting alone at a table. Heather grabbed a Betazoid Rum and walked over to where the Ensign was sitting "Hi Gabriella may I join you or are you expecting someone" Heather asked with a smile.

Gabriella looked up and smiled back "Oh hi Heather...please join me....I'm afraid I'm quite alone" she stated sounding a little off.

Heather grabbed her Rum and sat opposite Gabriella "If you don't mind my asking, what's going on....you don't sound like your usual perky self....if you'd care to share that is" she commented a little puzzled.

Gabriella let out a sigh "Am I that transparent" she queried then paused for a moment "It's Katlyn....you see we agreed to work on our friendship and put any....well....sexual activity on the back burner" she explained.

"Ahh....that explains a lot" Heather stated "Would you like some advice....not that I'm an expert or anything."

The Ensign's smile returned "That would be helpful.....It's just sort of put me in a funk....I'm very attracted to Katlyn physically....that's the problem" she stated.

"Well, if it were me....I would become friends with her first...it's always nice to have a friend to hang with and do things with" Heather explained "Then let nature take it's course.....if it's meant to be then the intimacy will develop over time."

"Your right of course.....I guess it's just something that I have to deal with.....I really don't want to loose Katlyn's friendship" she responded.

Heather smiled "And you won't....just take things as they come and don't push it" she explained then decided to change the subject "So what do you think about us being in the Neutral Zone around Romulus?"

"I'd be lying if I wasn't a little concerned.....and quite frankly" then Gabriella whispered "I'm a little pissed that Star Fleet would even send us on such a mission. They should have sent in a small fast ship loaded with Marines instead of sending in a Ship with so many aboard" she commented.

Then Heather whispered her reply "I know what you mean my friend and just between us I agree...of course I can't say much for obvious reasons."

"One of the downsides of being engaged to the XO I guess" Gabriella stated with a chuckle.

"Let me tell you...it's the only downside.....I don't want to say anything that would make him look bad in the Captain's or the Crew's eyes" Heather stated "Considering what a great and loving guy that Jamie is.....that's a downside that I'm more than willing to live with."

"All kidding aside....you are a very fortunate women to have someone like that in your life" Gabriella replied with a grin.

"Yes I am....and I'm looking forward to being able to call him my husband...and I know that goes both ways" Heather responded with a big smile.
