The next morning, Malcolm found himself in a position he was fairly used to since becoming involved with Ellie, waking exhausted in a wrecked bed… with an auburn-haired cutie snuggled to his side. In the dark of his quarters, a soft chirp from his bedside chrono woke the Aviator. Groaning, Mal kissed the top of Ellie’s head. “Hey… Ellie, babe… it’s time to get up. I think we both nearly overslept.”
Eleanor stirred slightly in her sleep. She didn’t wake up but a happy smile made its way to her lips.
Sliding off the bed, Mal stumbled in the dark toward the sonic shower playfully calling over his shoulder. “The damn thing’s big enough for two if ya wanna join me…” He snickered. “… but you gotta promise to behave yourself, or else we’ll both be late to our first day.” With that he slipped into the bathroom.
It was Malcolm’s absence that finally made Carnegie finally wake up. Looking at the chrono on the nightstand she groaned softly, much like Dawkins had done before her. Trudging her feet to the bathroom, she joined her fiancé on his morning routine, hoping for a nice cup of coffee and some nice company before heading to her first day on the job.
Malcolm had been in his office about ten minutes, reviewing a few emails before CAW-14’s Daily Briefing when a Personnel Action Notification caught his eye.

With a large smile, Malcolm tapped the stud on his desk. =A= CAG to Carnegie… stop by my office when you get a chance. CAG Clear =A=
Standing to the side of her vessel, watching Badger and Chuck argue over sensor calibration, Eleanor exchanged a surprised glance with Sloan.
“I know that you guys have been apart for a while now, but jeez, no need to do it during working hours too!” Came the Lady of Steel’s Flight Engineer’s playful banter. “No need to rub it in our faces as some of us don’t have that luxury!”
Carnegie squinted at him in mock offense. “I’ll make sure not to share the torrid details with you then.” She winked, unwrapping the sleeves from her flight suit from around her waist and zipping it all the way back up. “Keep me posted on how the argument ends.” Eleanor motioned to her Sensor Ops Officer and her Crew Chief still in a heated discussion. “And I’ll want to know all the details.” Her lips twisted into a smirk as she left.
Pressing her commbadge she replied. =/\= Carnegie here. I’m on my way now. Carnegie out. =/\=
It didn’t take long for her to climb a deck and find herself at the door of Malcolm’s new office space. Pressing the chime, she waited with a smile on her face.

Malcolm looked up from the report he was reviewing and spoke flatly. “It’s Open” As the door slid open and Malcolm saw Ellie, he smiled and motioned to the seat across the desk from him. “Grab a seat Captain… I got a present for ya.”
Dawkins then produced a PaDD and slid it across to Eleanor, the unmistakable look of immense pride on the Marine’s face.
