He hadn’t been there and seen the deep hurt her mom rarely ever showed. This went deeper than Gavin’s disdain for the Maquis and the whole thing was endlessly complicated. But… that was between her mom and her brother and Faye was trying hard to imagine a relationship with her uncle. Inhaling slowly, she let out a sharp breath. “Computer, erase recording and begin new message.”

After a chirp, Faye began anew. “Hey Gavin, this is Faye, Shara and Edward’s daughter and you niece. I recently discovered that you were my Academy sponsor and, well… I was rather surprised. I have a lot of questions and…” She reached out and paused the recording for a second to give herself time to think. After a few seconds, she hit record again. “I think it’s maybe time we met. Lots had changed in my life and some really great things are happening. Including the fact that I am getting married. Family has always been super important to me and so my fiancé Daggum and I… well, we’d like you to come. If you’re not interested, that’s fine, you can just ignore this message. But if you want to come, reply and I’ll give you the details once I have them. Your niece, Faye. “Computer end recording.” She quirked an eyebrow at Alex to what he thought about that attempt.

Alex looked at her and smiled. “Computer. Send message, Command priority.” and the computer chirped and the message was gone and on it’s way.

Her jaw dropped and honestly as much as she was shocked… she should have seen that coming.

“Nice. I think he will be pleasantly surprised.” and he grinned and winked at her.

“Jerk,” she muttered, though he knew her well enough by now to know she wasn’t really mad. Leaning back in her chair, she exhaled. “Since you’re well used to dealing with complicated family interactions, any advice for if he actually says yes and comes? I told my mom that I did’t want to make things difficult for her- she’s had a hard enough time as it is- but she simply said she’d manage. I’m not sure I entirely believe her.”

Alex thought for a moment and said “Well… the day of the wedding isn’t the time for them to reconnect. Get them together a few days early. Let them hash out what needs to be hashed out. Then, if he decides it wasn’t a good idea to be there, he can leave and it won’t interrupt your day. And if they can talk, well, then you have more family there for you. Either way, the wedding is not the stage for any contention.”
