The computer chirped and the setting shifted, returning Laila back to just inside the entrance of the pub facing towards the bar at the back. The balcony with a few tables was up to the left with the staircase just off the entrance to the back rooms she and the covert Shara had exited the pub from into the alley. The same mix of patrons were drinking, playing pool and cards or being generally obnoxious.

Laila had hoped the simulation would return her to the alley so she could find a place to rest, instead she ended back up at the bar. She stood there for a few moments before she began to make her way past the patrons to the bar area. The first thing I need to do is prepare myself. she thought. I need a drink. As she approached the bar, she sat on a stool and said, “One glass of Romulan ale please and a shot of whiskey…neat.”

Dacascos, COO

The same male bartender as before was there and he gave her a simple nod. At least on the holodeck, Romulan ale wasn’t illegal. He slid over the ale and then grabbed a bottle of nondescript whiskey (since she hadn’t specified) and with well practiced movements, poured the shot in front of her. “Fun combo…” he remarked.

Laila drank the whiskey, then said to the bartender, “Trust me, I have issues and I need it and maybe a little more after this too.” She grabbed the Romulan Ale, At least Romulan ale isn’t illegal in the holodeck program she thought as she took a sip and looked around. Her eyes went back to the bartender and said asked, “Have you seen a woman with very red curly hair and bright green eyes? I think she may be a regular here.”

Drying a glass, the bartender turned at the hip and set it on the shelf behind. “It’s possible there is a person that matches that description. Who’s asking?” he asked, leaning in a little.


“Um…a friend?” She said, unsure if the woman would really consider her a friend. “I was here before and she saved me from some of the,” looked around, “patrons here. I hope she can assist me again because I have a mission and I am sure I will need someone to tell me what is what.”

Dacascos, COO

The bartender eyed her, clearly skeptical, but finally looked passed her towards the far side of the bar. “Ree!” He gestured with his head.

It was hard to know exactly how Shara’s program worked, especially given that it had been reset, but it was also not your run of the mill training program. So when the redhead appeared again, she arched her brows and folded her arms over her chest. “You again. Glutton for punishment are we?”

Eulailia blinked excessivelyfor a moment, “Actually no, but I have something to prove so I have no choice but to subject myself to… whatever might happen to me.” She held a drink out to the woman, “Rhee…isn’t it? I wonder if I might have you help me? I need to toughen up.” She looked at her for a moment, “No doubt you are as tough as they come. The way you took that being down. I want to learn how to do that!”

Dacascos, COO

Ree studied Laila, looked at the bartender to see if this was some sort of prank, and then looked back at Dacascos. “Why should I?” What’s it to me?”

~Holoprogram characters

She placed the drink on the bar, “You would be helping an otherwise defenseless human girl gain some courage and combat skills?” She showed all her teeth in a forced smile as she clasped her hands together in a pleading motion. She wasn’t ashamed either. Then she said, “You helped me before, why not help me again? But this time you will be teaching me. There is reward within that itself. If that is not a good enough reason, tell me what I can offer you so that you would seriously consider my request.”
