Event Horizon Station- Promises

Posted July 21, 2021, 4:12 p.m. by Lieutenant Commander Faye Calloway (Counter-Intelligence Officer) (Lindsay Bayes)

As their week together drew to a close, Faye was getting antsy. She didn’t want Daggum to go! But there was nothing they could do about that. He had to go back to his assignment and she had to stay here. That’s just how it was.

It didn’t mean it didn’t suck!

But she wanted their last evening together to be special. But there was no way she could possibly match that extraordinary first day together. Not a chance. And so Faye decided it wasn’t worth trying. To match or surpass, of course. But it didn’t mean she didn’t want to try.

She lay on their bed (she hadn’t bothered using her room at all) with a PADD while Dag was having a workout and she was scribbling ideas with a stylus.

They all sucked! Why was she so bad at this? Maybe because she was nearly forty and had only just had her first date a few days ago? Uggh!

A few minutes later, she felt her chest tighten and she chucked the padd across the room. It bounced off the wall near the door and the cracking noise ripped through her in a satisfying way. Maybe her mom was on to something with the whole cathartic release thing.
