Back At It

Mission: Shore Leave
Location: Various
Timeline: Current



Jamie had just received word from the Command Yeoman that the Ship had been cleared for the Crew to return. Jamie and Heather packed their duffles getting ready to return to the Ship.

Jamie remarked to Heather "This certainly has been one heck of a shore leave; we were able to go to Earth and visit my parents and finally had the time to make love; which I've been wanting to do for quite awhile."

Heather smiled as she walked over to Jamie "Yes this is certainly a shore leave for the record books" she replied "And as an added bonus the Commander of the Independence has a new wardrobe to boot."

So the couple grabbed all their things and proceeded to get back to the Ship.


Once the couple were back on the Ship Jamie asked Heather "So would you like to come to my quarters and help me put my new clothes away, then we can go back to your's if you like" he inquired.

"Yes that would be nice and we're going to dispose of that tired old wardrobe of yours while we're at it." Heather replied with a chuckle. So they made their way to the XO's quarters which gave Jamie a chance to check both he and Heather back onto the Ship.

When they were at his quarters they put away Jamie's new clothes and, against his better judgement, disposed of his old clothes. Heather backed up and looked into Jamie's closet "Now isn't that much better, now you'll look the part of a Commander when your not in uniform" she remarked with a smile. As much as Jamie hated to admit it, Heather was right as per usual.


After arriving at Heather's quarters she asked Jamie to have a seat for a few minutes while she took care of something. Heather put away her duffle bag items and refilled it more of her stuff. Shortly she came out into the living area with her duffle.

Jamie looked up at Heather "What's this" he asked with a surprised look on his face.

"Well, I thought a lot about your offer and figured that I would like to at least try it and see how it goes. Now I'm not making any promises about it being permanent but we'll see. Living with someone is a lot different than just seeing them" she concluded.

If Jamie was any happier he probably would have burst "Make a deal with you...any time you want your own space or want to get away then you can come back here. Like I said before no pressure and I want you to be happy." he explained.

"I can agree to those terms" Heather smiled then kissed Jamie. So the couple headed back to Jamie's quarters to start their new adventure together.

{XO's Quarters}

After they returned Jamie asked Heather if she was hungry and she was. So Jamie made a nice dinner for the two to enjoy along with some wine.

When dinner was over Jamie took care of the dishes and grabbed another glass of wine for each of them. They were sitting and talking about different things when Heather remarked "I may just get use to being here with you" then gave Jamie a kiss.

Jamie looked into Heathers beautiful blue eyes "That would be wonderful; but like I said no pressure" he replied with a smile.

The couple spent the next few hours talking and laughing; just enjoying their time together which hopefully would be an on going event when they were off duty.

As it was getting late Jamie was a little nervous about what his sleeping attire would be, and he was so glad that he had put a fresh set of sheets on the bed before they had left for Ireland.

Heather looked at Jamie "I'm getting tired, so I think I'll go to coming." So Jamie followed her into the bedroom.

As the couple walked into the bedroom Jamie commented "I think you'll like the bed, it's very comfortable." so Jamie kind of waited to see what Heather would be sleeping in.

Then Heather turned and looked at Jamie with a coy smile "I hope you don't mind but I prefer to sleep about you?"

Jamie thought to himself "Well when in Rome..." then he replied "That works for me." So the two undressed and went to bed together.
