Side Sim - CO's Quarters - Well, Here Goes... TAG Zef

Posted May 5, 2021, 12:30 a.m. by Captain Alexander Cochrane (Commanding Officer) (James Sinclair)

The invitation had been sent days earlier.

‘My dearest Zef,

I would like to invite you, formally, to a dinner in my quarters, seven o’clock, two nights from now. Dress is Cocktail. I look forward to seeing you then.

Yours,

Alex’

He had spent the past week planning the night. Harv had prepared a fine and simple meal. Alex had the perfect wine. He had soft music playing in the background, and a single table for two was set up in the middle of his quarters. A tall, white candle burned and the lights were low.

Alex was dressed in black slacks with a relaxed but well tailored black suit jacket over a deep burgundy shirt, but no tie. His hair was brushed and he wore the cologne she liked best on him. He paced back and forth waiting for the chime, and tried without success to calm his nerves. He stopped and looked in the mirror. “Relax. What’s the worst that could happen?” he said to himself and the face in the mirror gave him a look that said *Do you really want to know?”
