Dinui paced around the office, the color in the room was a cool mint green along the port side walls, the starboard side were lavender. There were several shelves around the room each with it’s own center piece, the majority were from her personal collection of bonsai trees, two shelves however had blank canvas and sealed painting kits. Her chair was moved from the center of the room, the desk was significantly smaller than it had been for the previous counselor, she wanted the extra room for a bigger couch and set of chairs for folks to sit comfortable and relax. There was a platter of fresh croissants on her desk and at the sound of the chime she looked up with a smile, “It’s open!”

V’alura’s stomach gave a small growl en-route to her check-in with the ship’s counselor. Just a little longer, she thought, I’m sure the nice counselor will offer food and drink and I’ll go, why, yes please, I would love a little snack. Though, the closer she came to the counselor’s office, the more nervous she felt. V’alura was no stranger to counseling, seeing as she’s been in and out of their offices the past five years. Medical centers and their too-clean-too-antiseptic smell made her jittery and tense, but therapy offices left a feeling like a buzz under her skin. An itch that she can’t scratch and sets her on edge.

Show time. V’alura rang the door chime and entered on the request. Her gaze zeroed in on the croissants, “Oh thank goodness, I was starting to feel a bit peckish. If that’s okay, of course.” She said, just in case that tasty tray of pastry were for some other purpose.

“Of course you’re welcome to help yourself, would you like something to drink as well? Dinui said with a smile, the croissants were her way of welcoming besides the less standard colors and decor in the room. The live plants and the option to let folks explore their creative side with the painting kits. Whatever helped them to relax that was her goal.

V’alura plucked a croissant from the plate and turned down the offer for a drink, “I’m good, but thank you.” She took a seat on the couch and nibbled on her snack while taking in the room. The little bonsai trees were adorable and V’alura wondered if they were hard to care for. She had to remind herself to stay calm, and to try and relax, least she go all blabber mouth. Not something she wanted to repeat within the same day, thank you very much. “This is a lovely office,” She said.

“I was aiming for calming but I will accept the compliment.” Dinui said as she sat down, “I know you’re newly transfered aboard, are you enjoying the Ark Angel so far?” she asked after a moment giving V’alura time to enjoy the crossiant, nothing ruined the enjoyment of something than being rushed to eat it, in her opinion at any rate.

Dinui xi’Indrai, Chief Counselor

V’alura was sure it was calming, just not to her. Which was no fault of the counselor’s or her decorating. “Oh, I love it already.” V’alura answered, her stomach at peace once again with food in it. “I don’t think I can properly explain how novel it is. I worked on a set of a ship for so long that I keep expecting to turn a corner and walk off the set. How I keep forgetting the console screens and replicators are real.” She chuckled because that list could go on.

Ensign Belmont (science)

“Well I think each counselor has their own preferences, I think a bit of color and living plants adds to the astmosphere and if nothing else it is a good conversation starter.” she said with a smile, “Replicators and consoles are fun but there are still simple pleasures of reading from real books and making fresh bread from scratch.”

Dinui xi’Indrai, Chief Counselor

“The plants are a nice touch.” V’alura agreed. Gosh those trees were so stinkin’ cute. “Oh, no argument there, both are wonderful.” V’laura closed her eyes for a moment, recalling the smell of fresh baked bread, “Gosh, now I’m feeling all nostalgic.” Her New York apartment shared a building with a popular bakery. “And hungry again,” She added with a small laugh. Okay, this has been nice so far, just be calm.

Ensign Belmont (science)

“Well you’re more than welcome to take another croissant or more, it’s what I make them for to be eaten and enjoyed.” Dinui said with a smile, “I know you are still getting settled in from a recent transfer are you finding everything okay?”

Dinui xi’Indrai Chief Counselor

“I’m good for now,” She could always grab another before leaving. “I’m finding my way around well enough. Haven’t gotten myself lost yet!” Between the computer and the wall panels she’s had no issues getting around. “I’ve got all my things settled in my quarters, including my ladies who I’m sure are quite happy to be free of their travel bins. Oh right, my ladies are what I call my pet tarantulas.”

Ensign Belmont (Science)

Dinui blinked, “Tarantulas? Well that is a pet I would not have pegged you to keep. I know a few of the crew that are not found of spider or the like so please make sure they don’t go walk about if you can help it?” She did not want a repeat of previous experience where someone who kept pet spider let them loose on the ship to see just how many folks actually had arachniphobia. The sessions had been numerous to the point of some were bumping into one another in the corridor on the way to the office. Though some folks had just requested she come to them to their quarters instead, even than it had been a week she did not relish in reliving any time soon.
