Being a Department Head had its perks. Such as being the first scientist to step foot into the new Ogawa’s lab and taking in that new lab smell. The fact that everything wasn’t arranged as it should be didn’t dampen his mood. With a grin like getting a new bauble, he quickly drafted and sent a message to the rest of the science department to gather at the labs for inventory and putting things in order. With that done, he dove into his work with PaDD in hand.

Into the lab walked Ensign Charlie, pushing an enclosure with three balls of what looked like white, brown and a mottled white and brown fluff inside. She seemed to be everywhere at present this chalk white blonde woman in red. She smiled a dazzling smile. “Hello again. I’ve been asked to deliver these adorable bunnies to your lab. Please sign for them here.” She held out a PaDD for his signature.

It was only moments later that the doors to the science lab swished open again and Riani entered the room. Spotting Achilleas, her face lit up with a wide smile. Though since he was currently busy, she kept close to the door and simply looked around the new lab in silence while feeling the excitement about all the new equipment rise within her.

Ensign Charlie had picked up a bunny and was cuddling it. As Iyun walked in she grinned and bouncing over handed it to her, “here have a bunny, and you two have fun.” she then skipped off.

Ria was too startled to do anything else but holding the bunny gently to her chest. It was incredibly soft and warm and brought a smile to her face. Looking across the room at Achilleas, her smile widened even more and she whispered a soft, “Hi.”

As focused as Achilleas was on the task at hand, to the point he didn’t notice or hear Charlie at all, Ria’s whisper easily broke his concentration and stole his attention. He looked around in a daze before his gaze locked on to her face. “Hey.” He said back quietly as a goofy grin covered his face. He set his PaDD aside and made his way closer to her. “What’s with the bunny?” He asked with a laugh.

CSO Petrakos

Looking up at Achilleas, Ria gave a small shrug. “I have no idea. Ensign Charlie gave it me when she left a moment ago. It does feel nice, though,” she replied and then nuzzled the soft little creature a little. What she really wanted to do was to lean against Achilleas and rest her head against chest while he wrapped his arms around her. But the rest of the department could arrive any moment and while it wasn’t a secret that they were together, she did want to make an effort to keep things professional while they were on duty. At least as much as that was possible.

Achilleas didn’t seem to have any thoughts of being professional as he pulled Ria into a hug anyway, while trying to not smoosh the cute bunny. He did stop himself from kissing her despite the temptation of her lips being so close. “How have you been the last few days? Getting enough sleep? Eating well?”

CSO Petrakos

Ria leaned into the embrace and snuggled as close to Achilleas as she could while still holding the bunny. Withe her head on his chest, she took a deep breath; inhaling his scent. All of a sudden she felt a tension leave her body she hadn’t even been aware of carrying. “I missed you,” she whispered, preferring not to answer his other questions as she couldn’t honestly answer them with a yes. Tilting her head so she could look him in the eyes, Ria asked, “How have you been Achilleas?” Yet before he could answer she suddenly found herself rising to her tiptoes - albeit a little awkwardly due to the bunny and all - and pressing her lips gently on his.

A mix of emotions went through Achilleas in rapid succession. There was contentment, relief, concern, surprise, and happiness. He wanted to know that she was doing well, and he intended to get back to that at some point, but for the moment his heart was full and such concerns could wait. He closed his eyes to enjoy the soft kiss until a minute or so later he heard more staff enter the lab. He regretfully pulled away but gave Ria a smile as he whispered back, “I missed you too. I love you Ria.”

CSO Petrakos

“I love you too,” Ria replied before taking a step back to put some space between them. After all, they had to be professional while they were on duty. And hopefully they’d finally find some time to be alone together now that they were on the new Ogawa.

Achilleas turned to address the newly arrived staff. “Alright everyone, welcome to our brand new, never been exploded lab!” He said with a laugh. “First things first, inventory. I want to know that everything we have is what was listed on the original documents. We will not leave starbase without being fully supplied. Second, organizing everything to fit a scientist’s needs and ordering system, not what the quartmaster thought was correct. Let’s get to it!”

CSO Petrakos

Riani nodded silently and called up the inventory on her PaDD. Without another word, she headed towards one of the storage cupboards and started to look methodically through everything. Taking notes as she did so as best as possible with just one hand as she was still carrying the bunny in her arms. She wasn’t even fully aware that she was still holding the small animal, but his warmth and weight and all were oddly soothing and relaxing. Something she really needed.
