Alex shrugged. Even the mention of her name cut a little. “I may actually take some leave. Without you here trying to blow up the Jeffries Tubes every ten seconds, I might just be able to.” and he looked at her and grinned and winked. Going back to the seeds, he said “I appreciate the concern. Zef was… hard… it’s true… but that’s okay. Some things just aren’t meant to be. And who knows what the future holds? Maybe I just have a thing for Counselors and I’ll end up putting the moves on the new one.” and he looked at Faye and began laughing.

Alex

Faye snorted. “To each their own,” she said, giving Alex a sideways glance. “And admit it, you’re not just going to miss me, you’re going to miss the excitement,” she said, waggling her brows at him as she dusted the first off her hands. “Or as you put it before, that special brand of chaos.”

“Yuu really should think about distilling that and selling it. I’m sure I know a Ferengi or two that would love to set up a market for bottled Faye Chaos.” and he smiled slightly and then said “And I will miss both. Because you are the embodiment of that very welcome and wholly unique chaos. It’s part of what makes this ship what it is. And when it is gone… it will be felt all over, not just by me.”

Alex

For a moment Faye just gazed at him, deep in thought. It was true, wasn’t it? Somehow, somewhen on this ship, she had become a part of its fabric and now she was having to slowly disentangle her thread. But it hurt. She could feel it already and understood that while she was here she could focus on the next steps and planning this wedding, but after the honeymoon, she’d be with Dag and that would require her to go through a process of adjustment. A whole hell of a lot of adjustment!

Exhaling audibly, she just nodded, not knowing what else to say on the matter. Moving over to grab a watering can, she handed it to Alex. Now we gently water them in so any air pockets are removed and the seeds are guaranteed to have contact with soil. And other than that we’re done here. Need to check the trays daily to make sure they don’t dry out, but give them a week or so and you’ll have seedlings!”
