Willow looked sheepish. “Well actually…I was kinda hoping you’d just…” she held the PaDD out. “Sign for me and sort of say we did the exam but…not?” She smiled again.

“Nothing doing,” Brad said. “I have to at least poke you twice and prod you once before I can sign off on a visual exam,” he grinned. “Get over here.”

Willow rolled her whole head. “Ugh…” she said but did move over to where he was and towards the nearest biobed. She pulled herself up onto it and pulled a face. “I hate being poked and prodded.” She said and stuck a tongue out at him.

“Nothing out of the ordinary I need to know about?” Brad asked, keying the biobed to simply check her vitals.

“Nothing not in the file” she said. Turning to look at the new panels she raised her eyebrows. “Oooh sensitive” she said causing the readouts to shift slightly with her movements.

“Sleep is uninterrupted and for at least six hours a night?”

“Yeeessss....?” She said making a slight face. The answer was no. Definitely a no, the readouts would confirm that.

“Interrupted how many times, and for how many hours a night do you actually sleep in your bunk, not on your couch watching holodramas?” Brad asked with a small sigh. He knew his friend worked herself hard, and part of that was to not deal with the problems (both career and personal life-wise) of her past, but at the same time, the human body had both limits and needs.

He paid extra attention to her hormone levels on the scan, particularly her stress and sleep hormone levels.

Willow sighed. “Four hours at least sometimes six, and three times maybe on average at least once or twice. And don’t diss the holodramas you know you love them really.” She said with a slight grin. She turned to watch the readouts herself a moment above her.

The scan results would show her hormone levels were higher than normal, consistent with a lack of sleep and stress. Her blood pressure was also slightly elevated.

“Urgh.” She said at the panel.

“I’m going to take that as you recognizing those numbers for what they are,” Brad said with a small frown. “Give me one good reason not to knock you out for at least the next twelve hours.”

“I have three more departments to tour, six meetings to have, plus a counsellors check in to schedule and a teenager to find and wrangle and two people’s possessions to unpack in my quarters.” She said “that’s five good reasons for me not to be taking a nap in sickbay. Besides how would that look? Everyone and their granny traipsing in to complete their boarding exams to find me snoring in the corner? Come on Brad.” She did have the decency to look sheepish.

“How about I promise I’ll get an early night?” She asked with a hopeful look.

Willow Taylor

“How about I give you a hypo with a sleep aid in it, that will give me an alert if you don’t use it by 2200 tonight?” Brad replied. “Don’t think I won’t swing by your quarters to administer it myself if you don’t.”

Gratitude flooded her. “Fine.” She said. “But not the blue kind, it makes me nauseous.” She turned to regard the other readings on the panel. “You gonna make me come back in before I get full clearance or can I tick this off my list of things to do?”

“Even if I wanted to make you come back, you won’t until Command starts spamming your inbox with ‘reminder’ messages a month from now,” Brad said with a small shake of his head. “I’ll just trust you to take better care of yourself, and repeat myself next year.”

Cmdr. Dr. Brad Walker
Chief of Staff

Willow laughed. “I’m sorry Brad. I remember this part from your side of the bio bed.” She held three fingers of her right hand up. “Academy Scouts Honour!” She said. “I’ll look after myself.”

Willow Taylor
CO

He let out a snort of laughter as he signed off on her PaDD, then pulled a hypo from the bed and slipped it into her jacket pocket. “I’m serious, if I find out you haven’t used that by 2200, I’m breaking into your quarters and forcibly medicating you.”
