“Hey!” She laughed despite the protesting. Crouching down, she swished her fingers back and forth in the water. “I think enough time has passed that what you say makes a lot of sense. Back then though? I don’t think I could have accepted that if it was newly presented to me. But I apparently have this whole other family that lives in space and stuff and so I figure you all probably know just a tiny bit more than the rest of us,” Nadine said partly teasing, but also quite sincere as well.

“More? Oh hell no… just different. Working across the galaxy gives you a perspective, sure. But knowing more? I bet you could run circles around me in a ton of areas. Now c’mon… if your Ma gets there ‘afore we do and we make her wait, she’s gonna skin us both.” and he began leading her up the creek.

Meanwhile, Shara had finished up her meeting and in a weird sort of mood. The meeting went exactly like she thought it would, and then completely different. Yeah, weird was as good a descriptor as anything for her mood as she packed up a lunch and headed out to the meet Nadine and Micah at the fishing spot, humming as she went, with guitar slung across her back.

Micah and Nadine had just put lines in the water when Shara arrived. Micah smiled, looked at his wife, and said “Hey there, sexy… come here often?” and put an arm around her and gave her a squeeze and a peck on the lips before letting her go and looking back at his line.

“I thinking about making it a regular spot,” Shara said easily. But in that brief hug, the tension in her body exhaled out of her. She set down her guitar and the cooler with their lunch (sandwiches and cut up veggies) and a thermos of coffee with some small metal cups and plopped herself on the grassy bank.

“How’d it go?” Nadine asked, noting that Shara had her guard up even as she looked mildly relaxing compared to her approach.

There was a long silence before Shara founnd the right way to express it all. “Sh!t show and yet it was better than I thought,” she said with wry smile.

Micah vocked an eyebrow and said “Better, huh? How’s that? Did they actually say you were right and that they should have known better than to not listen to you? Because they said that to me once and I ended up in a Klingom Penal colony for nine months trying to break out- … well… a very not nice individual.”

Shara snorted. “Not quite. Admiral Jackass tried very hard to convince me I didn’t know better. Kept calling me Agent Calloway and I kept interrupting him to say ‘NO Agent here’. He was playing ignorant. But Admiral Greyson”-she looked to Nadine-“my supervisor for the last couple of years, she was the one who finally put him in his place and defended my decision to keep out of field work. And when we finally got that nonsense over with, we got to the reason we needed the meeting in the first place: my new assignment.” Shara a broke into a grin. “You’re looking at the Chief Intelligence Officer of an itty bitty battleship. Small crew, a ship with teeth, and a position where I keep more or less typical Starfleet hours and am not required to undergo cosmetic surgery on a regular basis.”

“Surgery?” Nadine said even as she chided herself for being surprised.

Shara laughed. “I never went undercover with my own face unless there was a particular reason. And I’ve had many hairstyles and colours over the years. “I have to say, I did always enjoy pointed ears though. You get used to them.”
