Sitting at one of the tables in the officer’s mess Luke sipped at his iced Coffee, a drink which he found to be extremely rewarding since his academy days both for its caffinated properties and its taste, he never liked hot coffee either. Today Luke has sat alone, at least for now, he didn’t discourage company but he was working on the latest security reports both ones he needed to fill and ones that came in from Starfleet Security, he liked to keep up to date with the latest.
Though Luke had his own office he usually felt the need to roam the halls or just change his location, he found alongside the coffee that it kept him focused and stopped his mind from wandering into oblivion if procrastination was a sport he’d be the Federations number one. The second reason he decided to come to the officer’s mess was that he was hungry, indicated by the rumbling stomach and again he could have just replicated something in his office, but who wanted to sit in an office all day?

A bowl of something creamy, hot, and very aromatic was dropped in front of him; followed immediately by a small loaf of dark bread and a ramekin of butter. “You looked hungry, and I could hear your stomach all the way in the kitchen.”
Luke was only somewhat startled by the sudden appearance of food in front of him but it was quickly replaced with joy, his stomach grumbled in response. “Thanks, this looks and smells great” He looked up to the man who had delivered him his food. The food itself looked like a soup of some kind, Luke wasn’t the best chef but he knew how to cook.
A Bajoran man stood next to the table. He wore blue jeans and a white chef’s coat that looked surprisingly clean and starched for someone working in the kitchen. On the left breast was a pocket, on which was embroidered ‘Executive Chef’ and a pair of crossed chef’s knives. “So whatcha workin’ on there, L-T?” he asked informally.
OOC: fixing typo.
“Oh nothing exciting, fleet reports came in from the Alpha Quadrant so I’m just keeping up to date certainly nothing that’s going to affect us here at least.” He turned of the PaDD deciding to fully immerse himself into his food and the conversation.” I think I overheard some of my junior officer talk about your cooking, can’t believe I waited this long to come down here. This looks great, it” Luke clicked his fingers trying to remember the name he had heard. “Marv or damn It… Harv that’s it, I knew I was in the right area. Your cooking lives up to its expectations.”

Harv nodded when he got the name right and then plopped down in the seat across from Wyatt uninvited. “Risian seafood chowder, my own recipe. The bread is a recipe a good friend came up with. I recommend dunking the bread.” and the chef leaned back and stretched his legs out to the side of the table. “And you’d be surprised how things from that far away can ripple. Good looking out.” and he sat his hands in his lap and then looked intently at the Security Chief. With a slight grin, he said “So I hear you and the Skipper butted heads, huh?” and he laughed. “That guy is way protective of his crew, let me tell ya…”
Luke did what Harv suggested and dipped his bread taking a mouthful and groaning happily before reflecting on his question and comment. “Its his job to care, I haven’t been here long enough and haven’t earned that respect yet, I made some questionable decisions and bit rough around the edges, but I’m learning, no bad blood from me atleast. I am curious to know just what they are saying though” He had another mouthful. This man wasn’t a chef he was a magician.
