Faye went wide-eyed. “Bloody hell. That is crazy,” she said, breaking into a slight grin. “I take it back. I’ll take the missing mom because then I can make up whatever I like from here on out.” She shook her head and leaned back. “My mom might have been a dreamer and sometimes distant but my dad he was the one…” She paused, catching herself. She rarely spoke her her father, except to explain how he died. “He loved the process of figuring things out and he taught me to love the natural world. We spent hours together practicing skills. I never minded when he traded a shovel and bow ad arrow for a phaser rifle under the knowledge that I needed to learn to defend myself, even at the age of twelve. I trusted him,” she said softly.

“What about your father?” Faye asked.

“He was the normal one in the family and as long as you fed him at five, let him watch Trivodey every night, and didn’t do anything to make my mom tell him he had to deal with me or my sister you never knew he was around,” Jasmine rolled her eyes. “Pretty much like any guy or a baby. Food, naps, and clean clothes and they are happy as larks. So he was a scientist,” Jasmine asked assuming the process of figuring things out and reference to the natural world had to mean a career like biology or ecology maybe.

Faye squinted slightly and half frowned. “Uhh, not exactly. He was more the techy engineering type, but he was a data technician. The man knew his way inside and out of any computer system he came across and I grew up learning what he learned.He taught me most of what I know. It made him highly sought after and then, as a Maquis, very much a target. Hackers are in high demand but also if working for the wrong side, a liability. Funny enough, I decided to be a scientist but chose really mundane fields to study so as to not draw attention, but… I’m very good at the data sciences side of things and probably should have always been doing this.” She shrugged. From her experiences with people, she knew that Edward Calloway had been something of a genius, but without the social awkwardness that sometimes accompanies those whose minds simply operate at levels far above everyone else.

“If you weren’t a doctor, what would you be doing?” Faye asked curiously.
