Kaia purred slightly, then opened the last door. At the end of the corridor there was this door, then a staircase leading up. “You’ll like that,” she said, gesturing to the stairway. The room was fairly simple, with a wide hammock slung up between two walls and a cabinet of sorts against one wall.

“Oh?” Kiama replied with a smile before into the next room. The moment she could see inside her face lit up even more and a soft, happy sigh escaped her lips. “How wonderful! Sleeping in a hammock sounds so romantic and must be very relaxing!” she beamed. Kiama then turned around and looked around more closely while letting her hand trail over the hammock.

Ooc: a.sorry for the lack of clarity. The room described is the one at the bottom of the stairs

OOC: Oh, okay. Sorry about that. edits her previous post ~Silke

Kaia giggled. “It is pretty comfortable. We sleep in these in the city as well. It took some getting used to, sleeping on mattresses at Starfleet Academy and on the Manhattan. In the end, I jury-rigged a hammock for myself in my bunk.”

“I can imagine!” replied Kiama with a soft chuckle before turning more serious for a moment. “While we were in hiding during the Occupation we ended up sleeping on every improvised beds. It took me a while to adjust to them. Though since I was a child I probably had an easier time with it than most of the adults around me.” She gave small shrug and her trade-mark smile spread over her dark face once more as she let her gaze wander around the room once again.

She stepped over and clambered into the hammock, crossing her legs and closing her eyes.

For a moment Kaima simply watched Kaia. She then lowered herself to the ground, close to the hammock but at a place where she could still see her friend. Sitting there cross-legged, her arms behind her carrying the weight of her upper body, she let her mind wander while her gaze still lingered on Kaia.

~Ensign Naim, Science

Kaia was quiet for a bit. She relaxed, laying back in the hammock. After a few moments, she got up suddenly. “Computer, scale up the simulation of this room by 75 percent and model a hammock of the original size, rigged up beside the original!”

It took a moment, but then the simulation glitched out a bit, and Kiama would suddenly feel a little smaller as the had become much more appropriately sized for her. Including a hammock she could sit in.


Kiama chuckled softly as she looked around the room that suddenly seemed so much bigger. She hadn’t minded that the house wasn’t exactly build for someone her size. After all, this was Kaia’s world and everything was build for her people. Unlike Starfleet vessels were everything seemed to be designed for at least average sized humans. She wondered how Kaia felt about it, yet she seemed so relaxed and happy, and so Kiama didn’t want to ask any questions that had the potential of making her sad. So instead she said, “Thank you!” And in a much softer voice, she added, “Let’s see…” as she tried to clamber into the hammock. She’d read about them in books and had seen pictures of them, but had never actually sat in one. So she wasn’t quite sure how to best approach this. And indeed, as she tried to sit down, the hammock moved so that she landed back on the floor instead. A soft “Ouch” escaped her lips while she was laughing at herself at the same time.

~Ensign Naim, Science

Kaia couldn’t help but giggle at her friend’s attempt to get into the hammock. A giggle that evolved into a full out snort of laughter as Kiama smacked her bum on the floor. “Well done,” she teased, hopping out of her hammock and holding the other hammock still. “Here, need some help with that?”

  • Kaia

For a few moments Kiama remained sitting on the floor, laughing so hard that a few tears started to trickle down her cheeks. Once she was able to talk again, she brushed the tears away and clambered to her feet. “Thank you, some help would be wonderful,” she replied with a broad smile. She then gave getting into the hammock another try and with Kaia’s help she managed to settle down without another accident. Looking at her friend, she said, “The way you get in and out of the hammock looks so easy. Is there a trick to it? Not that I mind making you laugh, though.” While looking at Kaia, her smile turned form pure amusement into a softer, almost tender smile. She loved hearing her laugh.

~Ensign Naim, Science

The little alien grinned and just… hopped up into the hammock. She grabbed onto the material at the edge and a moment later, she was sitting cross-legged in the softly swinging bed. Paying attention, Kiama would notice her legs bunch up slightly, then release, propelling Kaia onto her smaller hammock with ease. The different structure to her legs probably effected her ease, as Kaia had shorter legs and longer feet than humanoids, and she naturally stood on her toes like a cat.

Kiama watched closely and then sighed and chuckled at the same time. “I guess I’ll stick with awkwardly climbing into the hammock. I have a feeling trying to copy you might not go over well,” she said with an amused expression on her face. She then moved carefully into a comfortable lying position and was silent for a little while. Eventually she asked softly, “What are you thinking about?”

~Ensign Naim, Science

Kaia looked around the room. “Not much. I was looking at the ceiling and following the weaving patterns in and out. They are kinda pretty. A little mesmerizing if you stare at them too long…”

Kaia, Engineer

Kiama followed her friend’s gaze and looked at the ceiling as well. “They are,” she said softly. “You could almost lose yourself in them.” While she stared at the pattern, her mind started to wander; back to her childhood, but also to the more recent past and the present. It was a bit as if her mind was jumping from one memory to next, following a trail of emotions.

~Ensign Naim, Science

Kaia closed her eyes and refocused. “Want to see the rest of the house? I think we may have to cut the tour short after that, but we can meet up another time to see the next place.”

Kaia, Engineer
