After watching Séan for a brief moment, Viyara reached for another piece of rock with her left hand to continue upwards. Dressed in black, knee-long leggings, black and dark purple climbing shoes and a black tank top that was basically a sports bra, almost all of the tattoos on her body were clearly visible. Along with the majority of her Trill markings. From her movements it was clear that she was no novice in rock climbing. And the fact that the safeties were off only enhanced the joy for her. When she had received Ghubari’s invitation, she had hesitated for a brief moment. After all, spending social time with your (new) Captain, was something she didn’t usually do. Then again, most of her previous Captains would never have done anything like this. At least not with the safeties off. So before she could think too much about it, she had said yes and hoped that it wouldn’t mean she wouldn’t get in trouble when she kept the safeties off as well. At least with Ghubari.

Looking over at Ghubari, Viyara asked, “Should we wait for him, or keep climbing?” Considering that she had already continued climbing, it was probably obvious what she thought they should do, but since things were going well between them, she didn’t want to ruin that. Usually her relationship to her superiors wasn’t as easy going. Her file spoke clearly off that. Though there was clearly more to the scientist then her file told at first glance or she would never have been allowed to join the Academy or would have been discharge before now.

Well, that was the question, wasn’t it? It went without saying that this was an unusual situation for Koraia. Normally, she was a by-the-book kind of person with the mental flexibility to bend (or break) the rules consciously when needed. Now, it was more like a mental shrug and a ‘why not’ sort of head space. “I suppose we should wait, but I’d rather reach the next ledge. Safer that way.”

“Sounds good,” Viyara replied simply and without looking at Ghubari while continuing towards the next ledge.

Calling back down, Ghubari seemed amused. “We’re going to climb the next few metres to a wide ledge and stop there to wait for you. But, uh, if you’re not much of a climber I might suggest you take extra precautions. the safeties aren’t on,” she said nonchalantly.

Séan tilted his head as Ghubari made known their plan to get the the next ledge. Her words regarding the safeties being off didn’t surprise him in the least, though it did give a bit of insight into her mindset… maybe both of theirs. “Don’t mind me.” He called back before reaching for his next hold and pulled himself higher. His climbing ability was steady but certainly wasn’t quick, so he’d likely arrive to the ledge a good few minutes after them.

It didn’t take Viyara long till she reached the edge of the ledge and with a few well-practised moves, she pushed herself up and onto the ledge. Rising to her feet and then turning around she stood right at the edge, beaming from ear to ear. Spreading her arms wide, she yelled, “Woo-hoo!” Clearly not caring about what the other two might think of her.

Ghubari grinned as she pulled herself up onto the ledge as well, feeling the tautness of her muscles as she used her arms and core to propel herself up and forward. Her right knee was on the edge and she could feel the almost painful pressure. What a joy!

Turning herself over, the captain simply sat on the ledge with her legs dangling over the edge, taking in the view. “Good climb,” she said with a nod.

“It was!” Viyara beamed as she turned her head to look at Ghubari. And without thinking she continued a little more softly, “It’s moments and thinks like this that make me really feel alive.”

Séan took a few more minutes to catch up to the women. With a good amount of perspiration he pulled himself up to the ledge and got steadily to his feet. His breathing was deep but steady and he stretched his large frame to get the small kink out of his shoulder. He ended up with his hands cupping the back of his head as he looked out on the simulated environment. It was a good bit of exercise but wasn’t his preferred type. Besides if he knew he was going to be doing some climbing he would’ve done a bit better job of stretching first.

Turning swiftly on her heel while still standing right at the edge of the ledge, Viyara grinned at Séan, her expression full of mischief. “I don’t think we have met. I’m Viyara Nazeen.” Turning her head slightly, hands on her hips, she looked towards the horizon and added, “Isn’t this a beautiful view?”

~Ensign Nazeen, Scientist

Séan turned his head to look at Viyara at her greeting and follow-up question. “Pleasure to meet you Viyara Nazeen. I’m Séan Iven. We haven’t had a chance to meet yet as I recently came aboard.” He turned to look back at the view. “Yes it is.”

He moved closer to the edge of the ledge so that his toes were just hanging off and he looked down, gauged the distance to the ground, and shook his head. “While the fall might not kill either of you and I’m sure the good doctor welcomes any business thrown his way, I don’t think rock climbing with the safeties off is a smart idea.”
