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.
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?”
When she’d received the invitation, Zef felt a flutter of excitement in her belly. A formal request. She found herself smiling with anticipation as she mentally went through her closet for something to wear. Nothing was just right. Oh lovely, that meant she could look through the ships catalog of evening choices and wear something new.
So it was that on the evening of the dinner, she stood outside Alex’s quarters in a black, corset style top with peplum and demi sleeves, with matching pencil skirt and strappy heels. Fairly vibrating with curiosity, she reached out a hand with pale, pink nails and rang the chime.
Cochrane checked himself in the mirror one last time and said “Ok… here we go. Slow is smooth… smooth is fast.” and he turned and went to the door. He pressed the switch and the door slid open…
Alex stared and then smiled. “I don’t know how you do it, but you look more beautiful every time I see you.” and he leaned forward and kissed her cheek softly. “Please… come in.” and he stepped back and held out his arm, beckoning her through the door.
He watched her walk through, his eyes taking in every last inch of her. He knew her, knew her body… all of it’s curves, bends, sensitive places… but tonight, he saw her in a wholly different light. Like he had yet to know her in that intimate a fashion. He smiled and said “I’m glad you came. And yes, I know our track record for not getting to dinner.” and he chuckled as the door slid closed behind him. “So it’s a single course, and dessert is later. I just wanted to make tonight… special. Because I hope it will be.” he added cryptically, but with a smile. He walked up to her and placed his hand delicately on her hips and gently puledher close. Smiling at her, he kissed her lightly on the lips and then said “That dress is everything, by the way. You have good taste.” and he grinned.
