Her eyes took him in and Faye simply nodded. “You’re the captain,” she said softly.

Packing up her stuff, they moved to her quarters. Tess immediately hopped off the dining table and greeted them with a chirped meow. “Hey Sweetheart!” Faye said, stooping to scratch behind her ears. “But don’t think I missed you being on the table. You know better little miss.” Despite the lecture, Tess just wove her way through Faye’s legs and moved over to greet Alex. “it’s like having a kid,” Faye muttered, despite her smile.

“More coffee?” Faye asked Alex as she set herself down and moved to the replicator.

Alex nodded and took a seat. Tess jumped onto the arm of the chair and mewed at Alex, who obliged by scratching her head and then down her back. Tess paused and then looked at Alex, her head cocked to the side. She then moved to his lap, put her front paws on his chest and began kneading gently and bumping the top of her head against the bottom of his chin… what she did to ground Faye when she started to get overwhelmed.

Replicating a mug of coffee each, Faye moved over to the sofa and set his mug on the coffee table. “You know, I don’t need to be an empath- I’ve got a cat for that. What gives, my friend?” She planted her foot on the edge of the sofa and braced her arm on her knee.

Alex petted Tess for a moment until he sat her on the floor. He picked up the coffee, took a sip, sat back and looked at Faye, and took a deep breath.

“Zef is pregnant. And no… not by me. It’s.... complicated.” he said flatly.

Alex

Whatever she expected him to say that was not it and Faye barely managed not to spew her coffee. Instead it made her gulp down a rather large amount and it burned on the way down. Blinking, she coughed once and then stared at Alex. “Come again?” Complicated was probably an understatement. They were still together, so whatever happened had broken them up, but she knew he wasn’t thrilled about the whole thing.
