It had been a long time since Aizala had been in a park or anything like that; even just in passing. And even longer since she had spend any amount of time in nature and just be. Even though a lot of places were so different from the mountain range where she grew up and had lost so much, she never really dared opening herself up when she was in a park or arboretum. But she wanted to change that. She wanted to be able to enjoy the beauty of nature. She remember that she had when she was very little. Before. She hadn’t talked to anyone about this idea, but maybe this could be part of her recovery. Or maybe it would only make things worse. Either way, here she was dressed in her new, white uniform, marking her clearly as one of the medical officers. Even though she was officially still on medical leave. But she just couldn’t not wear her uniform. The only thing different about her appearance was the fact that her long red hair wasn’t tied back in a neat ponytail. Instead it hung open, framing her freckled face and hiding her Bajoran earring. Though the ridges on the bridge of her nose clearly showed her heritage. Not that she ever wanted to hide that she was Bajoran. She was proud of her heritage and culture. As she slowly walked along the winding path, Aizala let her mind wander while enjoying the breathtaking beauty of this place. It was so good that the Ogawa had this space and while her heart was aching, she hoped that one day she, too, would be able to fully enjoy this place without fear and sadness clouding her mind and soul.

Octavia was still coming to terms with her new body, well not really her new body but Raains, just thinking about the situation made her head hurt. She was Trill and she should have been more prepared but living away from her home planet and from any chance of becoming a host, she’d neglected any kind of real training and now she found herself in an impossible situation. Raain, her symbiote had given her time to adjust but she could feel her (yes she knew symbiotes were genderless but calling it it sounded rude), another Human trait she had acquired. She could Feel Raain starting to lose patience, and slowly but surely she did yes want to fully be at harmony and become Octavia Raain

She first saw the older woman and looking a little just as sad as her when she entered the in through the doors. She looked lost, and she looked scared or sad? She wasn’t sure and with the courage that Raain gave her she coughed and said “Hi, You look as sad as I feel.”

It took a moment for Octavia’s voice to register with Aizala. But when it did, she turned to look at the other woman. She nearly gave her a curt reply, but managed to stop herself. Whoever she was, she had done nothing wrong and it wasn’t her fault that she, Aizala, was here and feeling a little overwhelmed. So instead she gave her a small smile and bowed her head a little as she greeted her in return. Crossing the short distance between them, she asked gently, “Why are you sad?” Almost as if in an after thought, she added, “I’m Doctor Tija Aizala, by the way.”
