Miya’s brow furrowed and she met Aaron’s gaze with a concerned look of her own. “I agree with you, but let’s check with the CMO first. ” She tapped her commbadge.
=^= Venn to Lieutenant O’Connell. Following the Captain’s message, should we head to Cargo Bay One so we’re ready to help the colonists, sir? =^=
As she waited for a reply, she glanced across the room to check that the portable med-kits were sitting where they should be, ready to be used in any emergency. They were. Of course they were; the Sickbay team had been preparing for almost any eventuality since they’d been informed of their new mission. But Miya hadn’t contemplated that they could lose most of the colonists before they even arrived! She could feel her heartrate speed up and took a deliberately deep breath, accessing the calming techniques she’d been taught long ago. As she sighed the breath out, she thought that Aaron was still looking worried, so she tried a bit of humour to leaven the situation.
“Isn’t this typical? Just as we get our drinks, everything starts to happen!” She blew on her raktajino, trying to cool it enough to take a few gulps before Lt O’Connell issued her orders. Not that she needed extra alertness any more: her sympathetic nervous system had seen to that.
(OOC: I know Calé isn’t well at the moment, so could the kindly GM please send Aaron and Miya to the cargo bay? Also, Aaron wants me to say that your hairstyle is … chef’s kiss perfection!)

Ari’s voice responded =^= O’Connell here. Good plan Doctor, I’ll meet you there. Have NE Stephens man sickbay for now and stand by for further instruction.=^=
Miya tapped her commbadge to reply. =^= Understood, sir. We’ll see you there. Ven out. =^=
Putting down her raktajino with a silent sigh at losing the rest of the drink, she glanced over to Aaron and nodded towards the stash of medkits awaiting use. “Looks like we’d better grab some of these and get to Cargo Bay One. Can you bring one for Lieutenant O’Connell, please? It’s just in case she doesn’t have a medkit with her. I’ll go tell NE Stephens they’re in charge.”
“Understood”, Aaron said. He quickly finished his coffee before walking through Sickbay. Approaching the Med-kits, he opened one of them and checked the content. Everything looks fine, he thought. I should take a medical Tricorder too. He checked the other one before taking it and took his tricorder, laying on a table.
Approaching the hatch, he turned around and looked to his comrade. She also looked a bit stressed. He took a deep breath to relax. Being stressed will affect others. I might calm myself.
Having informed the NE to stand by for further instructions, as Lt O’Connell had ordered, Miya rejoined her friend and slung a medkit over her shoulder. Although her mind was buzzing with what might have happened to the colonists, she was trying to stay as calm as possible. Prophets, whatever happens, please let me do some good. And don’t let me mess things up!
To Aaron, however, she tried to project confidence. “Shall we go, then?”
(OOC: sorry for the delay replying; it’s been a hectic few days.)

“Whenever you want”, said the man, smiling back at her. As the hatch opens, he steps aside and presents it to Miya, a bit ceremonial: “Ladies first”, he said, stretching as down as he could. He hoped a bit of humor could relax both of them.

The bow was so unexpected, it made her laugh - which was, she suspected, his aim. “Why, thank you, kind sir,” she replied, tapping into her knowledge of cultural customs gleaned from one of their Academy classes. Stepping through the doorway, she turned to add, “We’d better hurry - we don’t want Lieutenant O’Connell to get to Cargo Bay One first!”
(OOC: thanks, Adrien, the interplay between Aaron and Miya in this thread has been a lot of fun!)
