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.”

Micah looked at her and grinned, but there was some melancholy hints to it. “Starship duty, huh? Well I hope they give that poor crew ample warning you are coming.” and he chuckled.

“And deprive them of sneaky arrival? Bite your tongue!” Shara said with a grin.

“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.”

“Was never a fan. Made wearing hats a real pain in the ass.” Micah remarked. “But forehead ridges? Oh yeah…” and he shot a naughty look at Shara, “… those can make role playing a hell of a lot of fun.” and he laughed and then his eyes went to the line. “Oh… hello…” he said softly as he felt a small tug.

Shara grinned and Nadine just looked between them and shook her head. Nope, she didn’t want to know. As much as she was enjoying finding out these two as a couple and individuals, she had her boundaries.

He was silent a moment and then suddenly he yanked back on the rod as the tip of the pole bent forward. “Fish on!” he yelled and began reeling and working the rod back and forth. Soon, he moved out into the water and lifted up a beautiful brown trout. He grinned at the two women and said “Well, I got my dinner. Dunno what you guys are eating.” and he laughed.

“I made sandwiches for lunch. Worse comes to worse, I won’t starve,” Shara said easily.

Nadine wasn’t sure fishing was for her, but she was giving a proper go. But so far, no luck. “I might have to join you,” she said wryly.

Enjoying the breeze that rustled the leaves n the trees nearby, Shara decided she’d let her tiny little bomb drop. “I made another call before I left to meet up with you both. I called Curtis. Seemed to me that it was only fair to give him a heads up that you may or may not be contacting him. I told him it was your decision but I felt I owed him at least the knowledge that a daughter he never knew he had had shown up.”

Nadine’s jaw dropped slightly, but at the same time, her eyes were focused on her fishing line as she tried to figure out if she was upset or not. It was logical, what Shara hd done, and probably fair too, but it opened a door she wasn’t sure she was ready to deal with just yet.
