((This is the shift right after Lera meets the Security Chief))

Lera had purposely waited till half into second shift before shouldering the tool bag and the console insert. As she bit her lip and headed to Security, she once more chided herself for her action that morning. It had been a bad night and she’d taken it out on everyone. Bad nights didn’t happen often, and she hated that this had been her first impression.

Sighing once more, she stepped into the department space and looked around. “I’m here to fix the Chief’s desk,” she said to the first one to look up at her.

The Petty Officer on duty said “One moment, Lieutenant. Do you have a work order, Ma’am?” The question was standard, even if it was in the system.

Security

She pulled the PaDD from her pouch. “Mmhhmmm…” she handed it to him.

He reviewed and nodded and tapped the comms. =^= Chief, Engineering is here to fix your desk. =^= and an all too familiar voice responded =^= Send ‘em in. =^= He looked at Lera and said “Go on in, Ma’am. Chief is expecting you.” and he went back to the task before him.

Security

Her heart sank. He was here.

She nodded to the man and headed to the office. When she stepped in, Lera nodded with a smile. He wasn’t so imposing sitting down, and she was expecting it. “Promised you it’d be fixed today, Chief.” She said by way of explanation. The console in her hand to show him. “But I can come back later, if you need.”

Mardusk looked up and a shadow passed over his face. “No, no… it’s fine, Lieutenant. I’ll get out of your way.” and he picked the PaDD he had been reading and stood and walked to the door without a look in her direction.

“Let Petty Officer B’rtun know when you’re done. Thank you for seeing to it, Lieutenant.” he said as he tried to sidestep her, giving her plenty of space, and heading to the door.

Mardusk, CoS

She stepped aside to let him pass. “Sorry… don’t mean to run you out. If the desk isn’t compromised, this’ll be quick.” She bit her lip and moved to the other side of the desk.

Setting her tools and replacement down, she grabbed a tool from the pouch and began to remove the top. By the second fastener, she was absently humming an Orion victory tune. It was slightly off key, though. Not so much wrong, as it was a harmony.

Mardusk left and was gone for a few minutes. Then the door slid open silently and Mardusk walked in, head buried in a report from FedSec to all Ship Security Leads. He didn’t think about it, he knew she was there after all, and he needed the optical disk sitting on the side of his desk. So he walked up to get the disk and bumped the desk with his foot accidentally.

Mardusk, CoS
