It wasn’t five minutes since they seperated in the Mess that Alex walked into his quarters. He set the food on the coffee table and then looked around, making sure the space was in order. He was nervous, but it was an excited kind of nervous. He went in the bedroom and started to take off his suit when he stopped and smiled. =/\= Computer. Grant full access to my quarters to Commander Zef Rollo. =/\= There was a chirp and the computer replied =/\= Access granted. =/\= Alex nodded to himself. Now she wouldn’t need to press the chime… she could come and go as she pleased. He smiled hoping that small gesture would help assure her that, despite their recent issues and pain, his feelings for her hadn’t changed and he continued to change into something less formal and more comfortable… but also not enticing. Sharing a bed but not each other would be difficult, but not impossible.

Alex

It had taken her an extra few minutes to decide what to wear since her first impulse was to always look good for Alex. Taking care of the requirements for the Degansa ritual before donning the oversized, charcoal colored sweats, Zef was glad there was only one more day before fertilization. She wanted her own choices back, food, drink, activity and clothing. But most of all—now that she and Alex were settling in to their new roles, she wanted their intimacy to return to what it had been.

Twenty seven minutes after departing the officer’s mess, she approached the doors to his quarters, one hand already rising to activate the chime. But the doors slid open as soon as her body was close enough. Zef halted in the doorway, considering what the granted access meant, then smiled and nodded to herself. “I’m back,” she called out, spotting the table containing the food. Walking over, she set her ‘overnight’ bag down and looked around for Alex.
