Posted by Lieutenant Faye Calloway (Mission Specialist) in Calloway’s Quarters- Always Time for Dinner
It had been weird, but the sensation of light reflecting on water kept showing up. Faye smiled as she moved through her quarters. It wasn’t her decision despite having been compelled to be the voice of change for the Graviens (what hilarity that was) but it had also felt right. As she ahd been going through her own massive changes she had been allowed to be the voice of what good they could do. Cool. =/\=Calloway to Naim.=/\=
Kiama was still sitting in her office, lost in her thoughts. So it took her a moment to register that she had indeed heard Faye’s voice over the com. Taping her combadge, she asked, =/\= Naim here. What can I do for you Faye? =/\= Hearing her friend’s voice had brought a smile to her face. And while Faye couldn’t see it, she most likely could hear it in her voice.
=/\=Dinner at my place. the replicators is cooking. What say you?=/\= she said as she moved a tray of seedlings back under the lights after having watered them.
=/\= That sounds perfect. Give me 15 minutes and I’ll be there, =/\= Kiama grinned as she rose to her feet and quickly moved towards the door. Of course she could head straight over to Faye’s quarters, but she’d much rather get out of her uniform first and freshen up a little.
About 15 minutes later, her curly hair now hanging loosely down her back, Kiama stood in front of Faye’s quarters; dressed in one of her favourite dresses and a pair of ballerina flats. The dress was cream coloured and looked like a vintage, 1950’s tea dress. the lower quarter of it was printed over and over with butterflied in all colours of the rainbow. So many that none of the cream colour of the dress was visible. The closer the printed butterflies got to her chest, the fewer there were; leaving only about a handful on the upper third of the dress. Beaming and feeling excited to have more than a few minutes over lunch together, Kiama pressed the chime and waited to be called inside.
