Faye hadn’t been looking for a specific answer and she wasn’t even entirely sure there was one, but as his words rolled through subspace, Faye found herself emotional once again. She nodded slowly, gratitude mixed in the sadness. She understood that in all of the mess, in all of the trauma the one single variable that was always present was her. She it had to be her, right? Something about her. And she supposed that all she wanted was a measure of hope, real hope. Maybe there really was a chance for her yet. Maybe that fascinating and strange future that Alex had spun about a possible Captain Faye Calloway could still be possible. She didn’t know if she even wanted that, but it was nice to know that not all was lost.

=/\=Well, I should go. I’m going to have to deal with all of this. And until I know what’s happening with my handler, it’s hard to just sit around. But… thank you Daggum, truly. It was a unexpected lovely call. Don’t be a stranger, okay?=/\=

~Faye Calloway, Data Specialist (USS Manhattan)

Daggum watched her and nodded. =/\= Faye, I… ok. I won’t be. But you don’t either, ok? Comms work both ways… or did you miss that part of the relay? =/\= and he smiled at her, a smile that held a hint of sadness. He took a deep breath and steeled himself before he said =/\= I really miss you. I hope that doesn’t sound weird. I just wanted to tell you before we disconnected. And I know you are gonna be ok, Faye. And until then, just know that I am in your corner. No matter what. Ok? =/\= His last question hung in the air as if her response was, at least to him, as important as what was happening to her on the Manhattan.

Hammor, Ops

Faye didn’t respond immediately and for long moments she just gazed at him. But then she nodded. Did she believe she was going to be okay? Maybe not. But she trusted his words, that he really did believe in her. =/\=I believe you,=/\= she said emphatically, as much a vow as she would ever make to people.

She lifted a hand in farewell and then the screen went blank.

~Faye Calloway, Data Specialist (USS Manhattan)

Daggum watched the wave and the screen go blank. He sat there for a long time, motionless. Just staring at the now black screen. “And I believe in you, Faye.” he said softly to no one any where remotely near him. Shaking his head to clear it, he activated his console. As the evening wore on, he became focused on a house to grow mushrooms.

Hammor, Ops
