As the pain started to ease off a bit she shook her head, “not that I know of doc, I don’t think I’ve ever had it…” she replied, trying to recall the last time she had injured herself. The pain had dulled from the medication and now she just felt clammy and exhausted. She smiled weakly at Ryley & Jess. “Thank you both…” she said softly. “You know you’re not so bad…” she added looking at Ryley as her eyes began to droop with fatigue.

Ryley scowled at her as he began the treatment on her arm. “If you’re going to name call I’ll leave you in a heap next time you collapse.” He said offhandedly as he worked.

Jessica returned to her position by M’Lene’s head now that she seemed fairly sedate and the risk of being swiped by those claws seemed to be vastly decreased. She returned her comforting hand to the science officer’s shoulder and gave her a comforting smile.

“Why don’t you take one of those naps you’re so fond of?” she said pleasantly, although the slight twinge of sarcasm might amuse Ryley just a bit. “We’ll get you all fixed up in no time.”

Indeed it did amuse him. The corner of Ryley’s mouth twitched.

M’Lene yawned, baring her formidable set of teeth as her eyes began to close. She smiled as she felt the gentle tingling from the stimulator and nodded wearily. “Maybe just a little…” She began and then promptly nodded off.

As M’Lene drifted off, the door hissed open, revealing to them the new XO. Having once been a CMO herself, SEAI tried to stay out of the medical crew’s hair when she could, knowing that an unneeded figure could upset the workflow of the room. However, she was not here for pleasantries. Reports of the CSO staggering towards sickbay had reached her, and being the ‘caring’ individual that she was, she made her way there to see what the damage was. Approaching the bed, SEAI turned to Ryley. “I do hope that this was not the result of another one of her ‘stunts’, is it?” SEAI never did quite understand organic’s obsession with adrenaline, putting themselves in danger just to get a high that would wear off in a bit.

SEAI (XO)

From the biobed with a slight smile on her face, M’Lene began to purr loudly as she dozed. As she fell into a deeper sleep, she began to dream about her first date with Ryley. He pictured him in something smart but casual, perhaps with an open collar and she would put on her most sultry dress, the green one with the open back maybe. She would cook him dinner, something fancy, and then after dinner…

As she dreamt, she let out a little contented sigh and a warm smile spread across her face.

Lt (jg) M’Lene (CSO)

Noting that her patient must be comfortable enough now given she had drifted off and seemed to be enjoying some pleasant dreams, Jessica was about to turn to assist Ryley when SEAl came in. Her eyes darkened angrily as she overheard the question and, stretching herself to her full 5‘2”, she moved to intercept the XO.

Ryley glanced up at the new arrival and his brow furrowed even deeper. He went back to his treatments letting the little fire cracker that Princess was turning out to be deal with whatever was happening.

“Dr. Ryley is busy treating this patient, Commander,” she said in a no nonsense tone. “If you have a concern about this officer, I’m sure that he would be happy to discuss the generalities with you in a private environment, not in the middle of Sickbay, after her treatment has been completed.” The absurdity of the situation enflamed her even more and she flushed with anger. Inquiring about someone’s condition was one thing, although teetering on the line of patient confidentiality, but doing it in such a rude manner in the middle of Sickbay during the treatment of the patient? That crossed her line of appropriateness as a doctor, no matter who the inquiring party might be.

Ens Lemann, Med

“Easy there Princess, lets leave the guard dog routine to those with a little more stature and bulk shall we?.” Ryley said glancing up, his treatment finished he handed Jess the device to put away and addressed the new XO. “Sorry Commander all I can report is that the officer presented with an injury which has now been repaired. Doctor patient confidentiality and all that…you know how it is back when you were out of the command colours. Besides, I don’t kiss and tell.” His eyes twinkled mischievously.

SEAI almost missed the days when she herself was a CMO. She was less shackled then than she was now. Being in command, she had to play nice, having to deal with the illogical and often annoying habits of those underneath her. However, she knew how to adapt, and although her emotion chip urged her to give a biting response, she only responded with, “I see. I only wish to enquire as having one of the department heads indisposed could prove to be detrimental should we have need of her services.” Lifting up the pads she had in one of her hands, she began to type, although the other two could not see what she was writing. “However, I shall inquire no further at the moment, as I do not wish to disrupt your workflow any more than needed.” While she could use her built in scanners and monitors to get the information that she was required, it was quite easy for her to deduce what had occurred from the way that they were treating her, and the way that she had been carrying herself in the halls. Perhaps she would speak to the Captain about installing a few more safety features into the gymnasium. While she did not understand the obsession with such antics, she was not about to ban something that brought joy to people, especially if the potential dangers could be mitigated. After all, a happier crew was more likely to produce better results when the time came to achieve them.

Pulling up Jessica’s profile, she glanced it over and noted that it was the girl’s first posting. Although she didn’t show it, SEAI found a bit of humour in the girl’s naiveté. Speaking like that to a superior officer could have drastic consequences, especially on a ship more strictly run, but the poor girl didn’t seem to understand that at the moment. Right now she would only file this incident away in her memory banks, but made sure to flag it in case a similar situation occurred again.

SEAI (XO)

Ryley shrugged. “It’s off duty hours and the injury was an easy repair in the end. When she’s not high off her head you can ask her what happened herself.” He picked his cane up and leaning on it moved around the biobed and adjusted something on his tricorder. “Ignore my guard pup…she’s still finding her space legs. But by all means disrupt away, we aren’t very busy as you can see.”

He looked at her then as if sizing her up. “So is that really why you came in here or did you just miss the whole sickbay feel and wanted to come hang out?”

Ryley
MD

Jessica returned the proffered equipment to its correct location and moved back to keep an eye on M’Lene, conveniently positioning herself at the correct distance to listen in on the conversation between SEAl and Ryley. As she overheard Ryley’s comment about her, she glared at him briefly and then rolled her eyes and shrugged. If people were going to fault her for something, she was okay with it being taking care of her patients and protecting their needs above all else. She checked the vital signs readout once more on M’Lene’s biobed, still keeping an ear directed at the two senior officers.

Ensign Lemann, Med

M’Lene gently sighed as she slept and wriggled around trying to get comfortable. Instinctively knowing there was a warm body at the end of the bed she scooted up and rubbed her head against Jessica’s arm as she slept, hoping subconsciously for a stroke on the head. As she continued to dream she began to mumble out loud.

”…Ryley…you look so…handsome…where did you…get that suit…? Wine?..Don’t mind if I do…”

Lt (jg) M’Lene (CSO)

SEAI was about to respond before being interrupted by the CSO. Waiting for her to finish, she turned back to Ryley as though she didn’t just hear M’Lene’s inner thoughts. “Besides checking on the status of the CSO, I have been making it a habit on meeting with the various department heads and inquiring about their status. I do not wish any inconvenience to hinder our efficiency, so any input is welcome.” SEAI paused a moment before speaking adding, “as long as it is well thought out.”

SEAI (XO)

Jessica was trying so hard to maintain an air of professional detachment, but upon hearing M’Lene’s sedative induced ramblings, she couldn’t help but giggle slightly to herself. She gently rubbed behind the CSO’s ears with one hand as she reached for a nearby hypospray with another, wondering if it might be appropriate to sedate the officer just a touch more. She raised an eyebrow at Ryley, enquiring as to what he wanted her to do in the situation, a small smirk still playing around her lips.

Ensign Lemann, Med

Ryley gave Jess a warning look and dealt with it himself by taking the hypo and adding something to ease CSO into deeper sleep. “Poor drug addled brain.” He said by way of explanation. “Says the most ludicrous things.”

He seemed to ponder the XO somewhat, if he was embarrassed it didn’t show. “Believe me Commander, I don’t say anything that isn’t well thought out. Not always welcome but always thought out.”

It was into this group function that Nash entered the sickbay. Now off duty, he had made the choice to come here for one specific reason. It might have been to see his old buddy Ryley, or to investigate rumors of new medical staff on the ship. He came through the doors however with a clear purpose, stub of an unlit cigar clenched between his teeth in the corner of his mouth and a coin absently flicking from one finger to the next with an uncanny dexterity as he seemingly paid no attention to it, his finger work was exemplary.

He paused though, seeing the new XO, Ryley and Jessica in the room, as well as a Caitian crew member seemingly asleep and snoring? Purring maybe? On the Biobed. His eyes passed over SEAI briefly and he nodded, he didn’t know enough about the creature really to hold much of an opinion. It might have been the new XO but Nash was still unconvinced it was a ‘Superior Officer’, but then again Nash had little regard for rank or things in mechanical suits. Ryley was another story, the crotchety old fogey was more along Nash’s style although he wouldn’t admit it to the man. “What happened there, Doc?” Nash said as he approached them. “Aren’t cats always supposed to land on their feet or did you give her some of that stuff you reserve for personal use?”

“She did.” Ryley said giving Nash a quick glance. “And that’s for me to know and you to buzz off about.” He smirked.

Coming to a pause he eyed Jessica and grinned gently, hands on his hips in a casually careless pose as if he wasn’t out of place here at all. “Hi there Doctor Jessica, don’t let me distract you, I’m here to see your boss for a moment.”

Lt Cmdr Nash, CTO

The smirk that had been playing around Jessica’s lips turned into a rather bright smile as she heard Nash’s voice and turned from her position focused on M’Lene. “Hello, Commander,” she replied, brightly, as if his presence in Sickbay was completely expected. She smoothed the rather loose uniform covering her and tapped on the teal trim and then the ensign pips with a playful smirk, as a reminder to their “argument” during their unexpected first date.

Now being in a position to see Jess in her actual uniform, instead of his, Nash raised his eyebrows in slight surprise that she was ‘only’ an Ensign, but at the same time the edges of his lips curled around the cigar stub in a grin. Maybe his surprise was only because he could attest first hand to the skill of Doctor Jessica’s bedside manner.

She was about to shoo him away from her patient as well, but she bit her lip, remembering Ryley’s rebuke about picking on people her own size. Chewing on her lip slightly, she noticed the cigar perched in Nash’s mouth and a small grumble came out of her mouth. In one movement, she reached up to pluck it right out, placing it safely in the pocket of her lab coat for later recycling. Her arms then crossed across her small frame as she dared him to complain about her… medical intervention.

Ensign Lemann, Med

At that Nash’s eyebrows did rise in honest surprise. He had been mugged, and instead of starting a bar fight as was his norm, he let it happen. He went to speak, then decided on a different approach.

Reaching into his tunic pocket he brought out a fresh, full sized cigar and put that in the corner of his mouth, but didn’t light it. “Doctor Jessica, or is that Doctor Rotten Egg? It’s about time for my physical, but I thought I’d drop by and remind you about the bet you lost and my victory choice.”

Jessica’s face turned slightly red but it was out of annoyance more than anything else. Her quick hand snapped back up again as she removed the cigar and glared intensely at Nash. “If you don’t want me to search your tunic pockets, you’ll cut that out,” she whispered at him harshly, but somehow with a slightly seductive twinge to it. “And there certainly won’t be any more bets…” she added, although her voice lightened slightly by the time she’d finished that statement and a small smirk had returned to her features.

He turned and nodded at Ryley, “Doc, looks like you might be busy,” he nodded to the XO then at the CSO still lying on the table. “Mind if we take a bio-bed and get the physical out of the way? If Doctor....” he let Jessica’s last name hang in the air suggesting it be filled, “isn’t too busy, we can leave yourself and the XO to your business. I promise to be behave. Well be nice. Ok I promise to be alright.”

He chewed on the cigar slightly, and obviously, as he glanced back at Jessica.

Lt Cmdr Nash, CTO

Ryley looked between them both, his eyebrows knitting for a second. “I’ll catch you later. Behave.” He added but didn’t indicate what one he was talking to.

Ryley
MD

Jessica’s mouth opened and then closed again and then opened again and then closed again. While she wasn’t ashamed of her pleasant evening with Nash, this was not how she imagined her duty shift going and she wasn’t sure how she felt about doctoring someone she had been personally involved with. She had totally expected Ryley to step in and turn down Nash, but as she looked back and forth between the two of them, that clearly wasn’t going to happen and she wasn’t about to come clean with Ryley right this instant why she probably shouldn’t be conducting this physical. It had only been one night anyway, she thought, although that gave her a slight turn in the pit of her stomach.

Stretching herself up to her full, but short height, Jessica formally replied, “right this way, Commander,” placing extensive stress on his rank. “I’m Doctor Lemann. If you’ll lie down on that biobed right there, we’ll take a look.” She patted the indicated biobed and then raised an eyebrow at him expectantly.

Ensign Lemann, Med

“Thank you Doctor,” Nash said politely, almost formally and followed her to the Biobed then paused as he looked at it, then back at Ryley and the XO a short way away. “Shall I remove my tunic, Doctor Lehmann?” He slightly emphasized her last name, as if in triumph and started to undo the top of his tunic just a little with a grin.

“You know, I’m not sure I agree with your boss,” he whispered to her and sat on the edge of the bio-bed. “I like you much better when you aren’t behaving. It helps me win bets, among other things.”

Lt Cmdr Nash, CTO

The glare on Jessica’s features was intense enough to melt ice as she studied Nash. This was the first time she’d had to give a physical to someone who had seen her naked and she wasn’t particularly enjoying it so far… although she wouldn’t necessarily mind if he did take his tunic off. Her cheeks flushed slightly as she pushed that thought of her brain and tried to focus on professionalism. Her hand quickly came up to rest on top of Nash’s as he undid his tunic and, leaning in to whisper directly in his ear, her breath warm against his cheek, she murmured, “I told you that I look better in teal.” She paused a moment and then added, firmly, “and you cheated.” Her lips brushed close enough to his cheek to just barely make contact before she stepped back and pulled a medical tricorder over to her, beginning her well-practiced examination routine. Her enjoyment of her profession showed immensely as she went about her task and, as she waited for the results of her scans to appear, she asked with a slight smirk and a twinkle in her eye, “is there anything you’d like to tell me before I pull up your medical records? Other than the cigar habit, which you’re now done with.”

Ensign Lemann, Med

“I didn’t cheat,” Nash replied with a half smirk and a raised eyebrow. “I used the terrain to my advantage. Nobody said I couldn’t trap you in a force field before we started.” He watched her for a moment as she went about her work, but he dropped his hand from his tunic ending the tease he would get undressed for her. Nash could see that she enjoyed her work as a Doctor and that was something that the often gruff Officer could respect.

Jessica visibly rolled her eyes in response to Nash’s classic cheater defense. As his hand dropped, she felt a flash of longing but shook it away quickly to focus on her task at hand.

His face grew serious when she asked about anything he might want to tell her before she looked at the medical files, and he nodded. His eyes didn’t hide the mischief that was in his mind however. “Of course, Doctor Jessica. Where shall we go for our second date? How about I pick you up around eight and yes, and I can explain everything in my Medical records.”

Jessica’s Medical scans would come back clear. He was healthy, fit and everything was as it should be. The scans did show signs of old injuries that had healed, broken bones and internal scar tissue from what looked to have been a number of serious cases of trauma.

Lt Cmdr Nash, CTO

In a rare show of discomfort, Jessica blushed in response to Nash’s question, but her response was saved by the chime of the tricorder and biobed giving her the readouts from her scans. She redirected her focus again to the devices, seeking solace in their familiarity and feeling a particularly strange amount of relief that everything had come back normally. The evidence of trauma did catch her eye and she glanced up again, realizing that she knew very little about the officer in front of her. Looking at a nearby PaDD, she started to grab for it to open his medical records, but pulled her hand back. Since he was overall in excellent shape, she didn’t really need to review much of his history and she’d simply file her notes later on. Her willingness to let him explain whatever past had led to the injuries surprised her and she found herself looking into his eyes once again.

After a few moments, Jessica shook her head lightly to break the moment and set the tricorder down. “Well, you’re still cleared for duty, Commander,” she finally responded, her voice professional. She pointedly dodged his question and the look on her face dared him to push her on it.

Ensign Lemann, Med

Ryley meanwhile busied himself doing a final scan of his patients elbow to ensure the treatment was complete. He looked up at XO.

“So…what can i do ya for Commander?” He asked lightly as he worked.

Ryley
MD

Ashlynn walked into Sickbay and nodded to Ryley before going to a computer terminal and looking at the schedules for today to see what was going on for the day.

Summers (med)

Ashlynn went to check on one of her patients from the previous day and began the process of discharging them to their quarters to finish their recovery there. Thus far her schedule looked pretty light for the day, barring any complications.
