Alexis noticed Myqian enter. She didn’t sigh but she was going to have to do something there, she just didn’t know what. She just inherently didn’t trust the woman and her invasive telepathy.

Bonner, AMO

Solal noticed the entrance of the XO as well. He barely knew her, he’d never spoken to her off duty. He was pretty sure he didn’t typically see her here, but perhaps he simply didn’t notice her. Or they happened to come on different days. It wasn’t like Solal spent a lot of time in the lounge.

For the time being, he turned his attention back to Bonner. With a nod, he replied, “Work has been slower lately, at least for myself.” Which was unfortunate, if you asked Solal. He liked what he did, so it made a good distraction.

A colourful drink was slid across the bartop, its layers green, blue and yellow. Dira eyed it curiously and then grin. “Should I ask?”
“Nope,” the bartender said.
Dira laughed. “Good.”

She took a step backwards and immediately bumped into an ensign who had snuck around a trio chatting. Dira managed to not spill her drink, but she looked startled, but was rather unusual for a telepath.

“Commander, I’m so sorry!”
Dira smiled. “It’s all good, no harm done.”
The ensign smiled in return and nodded, heading off.

She was still weirded out by her lack of surrounding perception. Normally when she used a suppressant, it was short term, so the discomfort and lack of awareness were so minor and temporary. But now it was going to last a few days and she felt a little off kilter. Not enough to discontinue the suppressant, but enough that she’d have to talk to Surra when she went back for a check-up.

Turning and surveying the lounge, Myqian took in the people gathered, trying to not feel slightly awkward.

Alexis took a sip of her water and then nodded. “I have noticed the same. It does give one the chance to work on personal research projects, but I do prefer to be busy with work.” Frigga, having finished her kibble stuck her nose on Alexis lap, quietly looking for attention.

Bonner, AMO

Frigga sighed a pitiful doggie sigh. Alexis was not paying attention, she had that scent that said she was thinking about work things. And the Steak Keeper wasn’t around to make her stop. Now normally Frigga would just be insistent, but there were lots of people she could beg attention from in the lounge right now.

Frigga looked around and spotted her first target. Himdal was one of her PT friends. He liked swimming with her in the PT pool. She trotted quietly over to him and was rewarded with her fur being ruffled and her ears flipped back and forth for several minutes until he left the lounge. Next was G’ynij the nurse from Primary Sickbay that always snuck her treats. On her way there though she smelled something off. Someone needed help. Sniffing the air again she turned and trotted right up to the bar and sat down and stared up at a woman she’d seen many times but never met. She let out a soft inquisitive whine, head tipped to the side, and pawed at the woman’s shoe.

Frigga

Not used to being snuck up on, Dira was once again startled. She swore that she’d need a double meditation session this evening just to shake off the day. Gazing down, she smiled and crouched, the fluid material of her floral patterned dress pooling around her. “Well, hello Frigga,” she said, reaching out with her free hand to pet the dog’s head, suspecting the therapy animal’s attention was because of her odd-state. “Glad one of us is functional,” she said softly. The top of the dog’s fur was so very soft and it was pleasant to stroke.

Frigga let the woman pet her for however long she was inclined to do so. She felt nervous and sad to Frigga. Of course human emotions were so complicated and Frigga didn’t always understand them in her limited sense, but the woman needed her. So here she was. Frigga really thought the woman would benefit from a full body Frigga cuddle. The deep pressure would help, and her fur was really soft and people seemed to like that. However that would require knocking the woman over, and Frigga was a well behaved dog and would never knock someone over with out an emergency situation. So she sat quietly, tail wagging.

“I guess that means Alexis is here, huh? Help me find her in this busy place?”

Commander Myqian, XO

Frigga tipped her head when Myqian said ‘Alexis’ She knew that was what some people called her Mom. So when the woman stood up Frigga turned unerringly back toward the table where Alexis was sitting, stopping and watching her charge to make sure she was following along and not getting lost. Once they reached the table, Frigga tugged at Alexis sleeve with a soft whine that immediately got Alexis’ attention. Looking down at Frigga, the pup immediately let go and Alexis stroked her ears. “What is it Frigga?” To which the dog glanced back at Myqian.

Frigga

Solal was not focused on the dog and so he had already seen what Frigga had done. “Apparently your pet has decided to bring us a friend.” He looked up at Myqian and nodded a greeting to her, “Commander. I hope you are enjoying your evening.”
