“Yeah, he is a real escape artist. No matter how careful we are and how often we check to make sure his terrarium is secured: He still gets out. All the time. And then we just need to find Commander Madison for he almost always escapes only to climb onto his arm,” Viyara replied and then started to chuckle. Before she knew it she was laughing softly while tears began to run down her cheeks again. She felt a litle as if she was going crazy and tried to stop both the laughter and the tears. Though rather unsuccessfully.

Janna just closed the half step and let go of Viyara’s hand and slipped her arms around her, giving her a firm embrace. “It’s okay. You’re okay,” she said softly.

“I don’t feel okay,” Viyara whispered as the laughter turned into sob and she twisted a little. Not to pull away, but so that they were face to face. Wrapping her arms around Janna, she clung to her as if for dear life.

“And that’s okay too,” she said, rubbing Viyara’s back. “But here’s something to consider: life happens still when we’re okay or not. But how we handle those feelings determines how quickly it passes or if we stay not okay for longer than we really need to. But the good news is you don’t need to figure that out on your own. You have me, and you have Daggum, and maybe in the future there will be others as well.” Janna didn’t let go but she did soften her embrace so Nazeen could pull away if she was ready.

Viyara didn’t say anything and kept holding onto Janna for several minutes till her sobs and tears had ebbed down. Loosening her arms carefully, she took a a half step backwards, wiping her face with her bare hands. “I’m sorry. I …” She shook her head and fell silent as she didn’t know how to finish that sentence; how to put her into words what was on her mind. But hopefully Janna would understand anyway.

Though she was tempted to encourage Viyara to name her emotions, instead Janna had a better idea. =/\=Kingston to Hammor. You up for coffee? We’re on holodeck 2.=/\= She was still in her pyjamas, but a pseudo plan had crept into her mind.
