Denooy shook her head softly, “no I don’t want to change the temperature of the office, I haven’t had problems as of yet, I do appreciate your offer though.” She paused before she added lightly but no less humbly. “If I do need to change the temperature I will inform you and anyone else whom should bade aware. If that time comes I will most likely ask if I can move the bonsai trees to the Arboretum or something.” She looked at her, “I can tell you are doing very well, has anything changed recently?” Denooy asked softly but was very genuinely interested in knowing how Sahara was doing.

“Well you know I will make a place for them in the arboretum if need be.” She took another bite, Dinui’s baking skills were amazing. Sharah had thought about asking her to show her, but after burning her hand a few nights ago, she was going to put that on hold. She grinned blushing noticeably. “Joseph’s here!” Sharah of course had talked to Dinui about Joseph and that they had both been reassigned here to AA together. Totally by chance, but she was thankful for it, and she was ecstatic that he was finally on board. “Have you ever been around someone that simply makes you whole? Accepts all of you, no matter who or what you are? Like it doesn’t matter, makes you better, and quiets the monsters?”

Denooy smiled softly, “Ah I see, well I am glad he arrived and you’re happy together.” She shook her head softly, “I have not found someone like that yet.” Denooy looked at Shara, “Besides having Joseph aboard has anything else happened?” She still remembered the evening of Shara being promoted and having difficulty with the overload of emotions. Though in her opinion Denooy felt Shara was making astounding progress since then.

Sharah grinned, but turned her mind to answering the question. “En Tabris Asam, he’s in engineering. He’s turned out to be a very good friend, but he adopted FOUR children and they arrived just before the holiday. My work as CSO is going well. I’ve found it difficult but I like the challenge. I have a very good staff and experts in all departments. I am very thankful for that because I find it daunting and a little sickening to think I would have to be an expert in all departments. While you were out, Q visited us with lots of holiday pranks. And,” Sharah turned to Dinui, “You might want to sit down if no one has told you.” She waited to see what Dinui would chose to do. Sharah hoped someone had told her when she woke up and was better, but if not she needed to know where they were. “Q flung us to the very end of the known universe. We are several hundreds of billion of years away from home.”

Denooy listened as Shara spoke, a friend with four adopted children. That was a definite new event. The mention of Q being present and flung them across the universe was concerning. She frowned slightly. “I thought he was part of fever dream and I ignored him.” She shook her head softly, looking at Shara “I guess I should have taken him more serious after all.” Denooy sat back a moment. “Needless to say I will apparently be seeing folks for the foreseeable future. At least until we have another run in with Q. If past is to be believed at any rate Q might return to see what we’re up to or change something else.”

Sharah nodded, “It’s been a rough few days. There were two ensigns, I’m sure you will be called to see. They are in the brig now, they locked themselves in the sauna and threatened to kill themselves if they didn’t see Cpt Andone and she take us home.” She sighed, “When Q appeared on the bridge he said the continuum was having a debate on how we would handle extremes. Usually once we pass a test they take us home, right? Or that’s how it seems when I read the logs at the academy. We just have to figure out what the test is.”

Denooy’s eyes widened, “That is what I remember reading, figure out the test and we should be returned on our previous course if we are lucky.” she made a note to ask about the pair that threatened to kill themselves before turning her attention back to Shara, “How are you doing despite all of the developments?”

Sharah took a deep breath and then kind of deflated. “I’m happy and excited, and nervous, and feeling rather inadequate. And scared, anxious, afraid, angry, jittery, and most of the time I’m not sure if I feel that way or if it’s what I’m feeling from everyone around me. It’s gotten worse since Q decided to send us flying. I mean I would expect all those emotions after what’s happened but it’s hard having to feel them all all the time and even if I can get a handle on mine it doesn’t matter.”

Denooy nodded her head softly, “Best to just take a few minutes just to breath and find yourself seems the best place to start.” she said lightly as she looked at Shara. “Unless you want to try some distraction therapy?” she added after a moment’s pause.

O O C just a reminder I am using speech to text to write this so some character names are spelled incorrectly sorry.

Sharah nodded munching on the last chocolate croissant on her plate and then finished the milk with a satisfied smile. “Both. I can find myself, I can determine, when I’m focused, what is my thought and what is not. But I can’t make the other thoughts stop coming.” Sharah had of course done distraction therapy before. But she was willing to do it again, and again, and again, and so on and so forth until something changed. “What shall we do to distract me?” she asked. Her excitement over how well things were going and being well rested and Joseph (not in that order) she was in a good mood and rather than being upset over returning to a previously tried technique she was fascinated to see how Dinui would approach it.

Denooy smiled softly as she looked at Shara, “I am going to start up a cooking lessons class and I figured you might enjoy it plus cooking takes focus but in a different way from your excellence with plants.” She nodded towards the bonsai around them. “I wanted to thank you again for all your recommendations for my own plants they’ve improved greatly since you have your advice.”

“I’d love to learn to cook. I always wanted to, but my mom didn’t think it was a good idea. Good thing for replicators.” Sharah got up and walked over to the trees, examining them with a practiced eye. “They are doing very well. This cherry blossom has seedlings. They aren’t big enough to transplant yet, but maybe in two weeks.” Sharah pointed out the very tiny shoots that had just broke the surface. “Since this is the only cherry blossom it will be some kind of hybrid. To early to determine yet what it’s crossed with.” Sharah went over to the coffee table and grabbed her the last of her croissant and popped it into her mouth.

Denooy nodded her head softly, “I grew up cooking, had to get used to replicators during the academy but I still enjoy cooking. First class will be very basic, starting off with a a simple bread, after that once you and whomever else joins the class is comfortable with their break making I think pizza then some easy pastries. After that depening on time allowance and interest I was going to take request from the class. Do you think that will be okay for you to work in?”

Sharah thought about it. “I suppose we will find out. I don’t think it would be any worse than normal. I’ll either surf above the noise or I won’t.” She figured that no where was louder or quieter than anywhere else.

“Or the sights and smells of the freshly baked bread will distract everyone equally.” Denooy replied with a light smile though she was hoping that everyone would have fun with the cooking class as well as relax too. “Go ahead and pass along the invitation to your beau too. Cooking with someone you know well might help too but if he doesn’t have the time it is okay too.”

Denooy Ze In Dra, Chief Counselor

Sharah nodded, “I’d love for him to come.” She and Joseph cooked often together. He might actually enjoy it, give him a break from the work load. “I’ll ask him.” Sharah finished the croissant she had and then stood up to leave. Her hour was up. “I’ll see you there. I’m glad you’re feeling better.”
