Posted by Captain Willow Taylor (Commanding Officer) in Side sim: Medical Labs - Problem children make the best role models
After the news that her previous CSO had to transfer Willow had spent some time looking over the resumes of those that could be considered for the role. There were two standouts, both from other ships and capable officers at that but while each one was exemplary something else niggled at the back of her mind.
It wore at her like a headache and the more it wore the less she was able to work. Finally, after an hour she sent a quick memo to Dira with the two officers that would work and a statement saying that she actually didn’t want either…and had an idea. That done she headed to the labs.
Entering the redhaired woman lost no time in finding the source of the niggling annoying headache. She made a beeline directly for Kane. Her expression determined. She heard the NE working nearby Kane go. “Uhoh…your in trouble.” Under his breath and make a hasty exit.
Kane looked at the canine Anticancer and then around at the approaching Captain. Looking back at the NE, he said “Go drag your butt across the rig, will ya?” and then turned and looked at Taylor, arms folded across his chest and hair falling across his face.
“A word if you please Doctor.” She said to the tattooed man.
“Just one? Must be a big word.” and he stood up and walked away from the work station and towards an empty section of the lab that still had to be stocked and equipped.
“It can be a short word if you’d like to keep that attitude up. Starts with B ends in rig.” She said and followed.
Turning, he said “Who’s mad at me now? In their defense, I probably did say whatever they said I did.”
Kane, Problem Child
Leaning against the bulkhead Willow crossed her arms and surveyed the man before her. The calculating expression on her face softened the stern look she had entered with. “I know you didn’t choose to be on this ship. Good knows we didn’t choose you.” She said after a few moments of silence. “You’ve been a pain in the ass the whole time you’ve been here. I’ve got complaints from staff members a mile long about your attitude and comments made. I’ve also got to take into account your recent…creative problem solving with a certain crew member and Intel. Now if you were in my shoes…what would you do?” She asked and waited.
