Stark pressed the chime on Ghubari’s quarters. It was confession time…

Sitting at her desk and working on reports, Ghubari felt his presence moments before the chime went off. With a smile she turned in her seat and called out, “Enter.”

“What’s up?” she said simply, her pale amber gaze sweeping over him quickly, assessing.

Stark knew that preamble and any form of dissembling was going to land him in hot water but he did take the precaution of sweeping the room for listening devices and other intrusions before sitting down with a dramatic swoosh of his tail, clasping his paws together and delivering his line with a flourish.

“My wife can stop time”.

OOC One of these days these two are actually going to have a conversation about something innocuous like the weather… but today is not that day haha.

OOC: Ha!
IC:
Her face was impassive for a moment, though she knew he’d have a decent guess about what she was feeling. “You’re going to have to explain that one,” she said dryly.

“I’ll keep it short,” he said with a small grin now that the first moment of potential nastiness was gone “Something to do with the reintegration process from our time adventure has altered Laraan’s energy so that she can now stop time in a localized area. It’s pretty exhausting though. As a side option, it seems that Temporal Investigations wants to use it as a wild card in the Temporal Cold War. Michail has even got permission from them to name Laraan, S’Raal, T’Pon and me as a team”. Stark sat back a little not sure if this was going to be the straw that broke the Captain’s back. Multiple quips formed in his mind but he rejected every single one of them because of his innate survival instinct that was screaming at him to shut up and say nothing.

Ghubari shook her head, her eyes darkening. “Absolutely not! My crew are not pawns for whatever agency of the day feels the need to abscond with them. Your duties are to this ship and crew. I’m not going to have you all galavanting off whenever others snap their fingers. And Michail should know that already. He should also know that he had zero right to ask anyone anything without clearing it with me. So no, Stark. Just because Laraan has this ability, doesn’t mean she’s suddenly available for the use of other people’s whims. You are all my crew, not theirs!”

OOC: I’m enjoying this thread! lol! Good things Orvos wasn’t mentioned. ;)

Stark was trying very hard not to look like a teenager who’s social privileges had just been revoked. he also stopped dead of the first thought that ran through his mind that if they went out of time they could come back 1 second later with no one the wiser… he was pretty sure she’d tumble to that one if it happened. Finally he decided that his safest bet was to behave and then probably something out of his control would happen and someone else would take the fall for it… hopefully.

He blinked twice, deliberately putting on his “repentant face”, “I think Michail isn’t aware yet of protocols like that, I guess he’s thinking that his bosses pushed us into our last outing and so he had a right to do it again this time”. There, Michail in the hot seat, Stark the reasonable obedient one, nice.

“I can fill him in if you like and get him to toe the line a bit more”. If she went for that, they could possibly go off on an adventure and put it down to a misunderstanding, if she chose to debrief and dress Michail down herself then the shoe was definitely on Michail’s foot and all the blame as well…

He opened his eyes a little wider to add to his “innocent look”, “Pretty handy skill though right, stopping time and all?”
