Bambi and Candy Parker were on a mission. After the events of yesterday, they were determined to talk to the security chief. Walking up to the door they both tried to palm it at the same time generating a look of frustration on the mirror image faces. “You know you don’t have to come. I was the one that was assaulted not you,” Bambi said giving her sister a sour look.

: : : : : : : “Please,” she scoffed. “You just ended up in the closet faster. It is not like you and Ensign Don Juan DeMarco weren’t headed there,” Candy fluffed her hair out. “Besides Mom would kill me if I let you do this by yourself. We are sisters.”
: : : : : : :
: : : : : : : “You are just jealous that I get to spend the next few hours alone with Rico,” Bambi activated the door chime again. “He will want to be thorough with his report.”
: : : : : : :
: : : : : : : “Yes and I will be there for moral support,” Candy gave her sister a sappy smile.

: : : : : : At his desk, Rico stood and grinned. He was expecting Ally to come by for their regular game of Operation on his break, but she was early it seemed which was fine with Rico, he could spend the entire day with her and just hang, not a word said if need be but just being close to her made his skin tingle in a way that he hadn’t felt in a long time.
: : : : : :
: : : : : : Coming around the desk Rico decided that he would do his best to look a little bit more dashing and, well, sexy for her. He undid his uniform tunic at the top so that it was open a short way down his chest, showing the tight undershirt he wore under his uniform and letting Ally see and think of his toned muscles and her head pressed against his chest as they both touched and lay together. He roughed his hair slightly to give him that roguish look that she loved, and his stubble was slight and made him look a little more like the quiet rebel that he was.
: : : : : :
: : : : : : His whole intention was to make Ally bite her lip and get the special tingles that made her skin goose-bump when she was near him and his lips where near her neck, so he moved to the door and leaned casually against the frame, a dashing smirk lining his face and an eyebrow raised in a suggestive greeting as he pressed the control to open the door and let Ally into his lair.

: : : “Rico,” Bambi said looking at the rakish grin on the security officer’s face. “If this is how you receive all your appointments then sign me up for a daily meeting.” She reached up and pretended to adjust the comm badge on his shirt. The move worked far better when the gentleman receiving the touch was in a suit but in a pinch, it still worked. Sauntering past Rico, she made her way to one of the chairs facing the security chief’s desk.
: : Surprised, Rico straightened immediately and cleared his throat. Watching her move to the chair, he quickly did up the zip on his tunic again and wondered why the Parker Twins would be visiting him in his office. “Please, come in and sit down” he muttered, politely of course.
: : :
: : : “My sister can be impossible,” Candy said taking a moment to make her play. Bambi moved way to fast and gave up way to early. Candy would not make the same mistake. “You do look nice this morning. Are you doing something different with your hair? Keep it up,” she smiled moving the seat left open by her sister. “Now which one of us do you want to do first,” Candy said leaning back and crossing her legs slowly and seductively.

: : : Lt. Ally Scott, medical
: : Remembering he had roughed his hair, Rico made a subtle effort to make it tidy again before moving around to his seat behind the desk, just in time to watch Candy/Bambi whichever one was which out of the corner of his eye cross her legs slowly. Easy Rico he thought to himself, these two are trouble, like holding a lit firework in your hand it’s a whole lotta fun at the time but then everybody is going to know what kind of stupid stunt you pulled and he slid into his seat with a wide, pleasant smile.
: : “Oh I am sure I can do you both right now” he said, and the smile slid off his face as he realized he had walked into her suggestion, and he found himself clearing his throat again and adjust a PaDD slightly. “Who wants coffee?” he offered, moving to carry on the conversation before he made things more awkward for himself, “And then one at a time, tell me how I can help you ladies.”

“Well see this bump,” Bambi leaned forward. “Some guy accosted me in the hall,” she replied letting her hair fall back into place. Yesterday night about 9 pm I was walking back to my quarters with Bob Grayson talking about duty rosters and out of nowhere someone pushed us both bodily into a maintenance closet. I didn’t see him because it was a blur but I bumped my head on the....door.” Bambi was not about to say that the momentum of the push had sent her and Bob into the closet, nor that she was leaning on the door with pretty much all her body weight on Bob. She could not have Rico thinking her discussion with Bob was anything less than official. “I think that qualifies as an assault charge right?”
“Assault?” Rico asked her, “you’re sure it was assault? There may be other explanations for that. Maybe the door just opened by itself? Did you stop for a moment and lean on it at all?” Rico remembered Bambi the previous night, and it seemed his recollection of the event was a little more complete than hers. In point of fact, there didn’t seem to be much talking going on at all, or walking, and it had seemed to Rico that Bob had his hands full, literally, at about that moment while Bambi had kindly appeared to be helping him with a stuck zipper, or something.
Rico cleared his throat as the memory passed and he seemed to be entering information onto his console, taking notes. Okey so, maybe it could qualify as Assault. So who did it?” He looked at Candy as he stopped speaking, “Did you see anything? I think someone said you were in the area last night to yes?”
Candy looked at Bamby who shrugged. Both sisters had been waiting to find something to on the golden girl who had seemed to make Rico Vanhall think she was perfect. As luck would have it, they finally hit paydirt. There was no way Amazing Ally, as the sister’s snidely referred to her as, would come out squeaky clean after this. “Lt. Allison Scott,” Candy said with a confident tone in her voice.
“Who?” Rico said, not because he didnt recognise the name but because the claim Ally was involved was so out of left field and unexpected that for a moment he seemed otherwise speechless. After a few moments he raised his hands a made the universal ‘calm the heck down’ motion. “No no, you are mistaken. There isn’t any way Ally was involved, she was busy last night. I can vouch for her personally.”
“It is not like this is her first time assaulting someone. You know what they say…once a person gets a taste for the criminal life they never can come back,” Bambi added and then in a more sympathetic tone. “You did know that Ally had been formally booked on assault charges about six months ago didn’t you?” Now Rico would have to investigate and little Miss perfect teeth and hair would go bye-bye leaving the Parker twins to vie for which one of them would be the rebound girl.
Bambi “Sherlock” and Candy “Watson” Investigators not so extraordinaire
The look on Rico’s face was confused, but all the same cautious. Ensign Fabio had told him a story about how these twins had tricked him into a night of exhaustive passion by pretending to be the same person, feeding him performance enhancing medication and then tagging in and out without the Ensign knowing any different. Oh he hadn’t wanted to complain at all, and Rico wasn’t too sure exactly where the true story ended and any fabrication began, but he knew that these twins were clever and often made sure the got what they wanted. That thought made Rico even more determined to ensure he exposed their littke game for what it was.
“What are you talking about?” Rico said to the pair, looking from one to the other in his best stern and disbelieving face. “Ally has no record of any assault on her file, I’ve checked the entire crew, including yourselves and I can assure you that compared to some records” Rico paused and looked from one to the other knowingly, “Ally has a spotless record. She even got recently promoted so explain yourselves and how you presume that even if she did, she had anything to do with you and Bob getting shoved into that supply cupboard.”
Lt Rico Vanhall
Bambi sighed and pulled out her personal communicator. Punching a few buttons she then turned the screen to Rico. On it was the mug shot of Allison Lily Scott looking none too thrilled or like the Ally most saw on a day to day basis. The ponytail was there but looked disheveled with more than a few strands falling everywhere around her face. Scanning down under the picture was a link for a report. “Care to read it,” Bambi asked almost triumphantly.
Bambi Parker…super slueth
Rico reached out and took the communicator, roughly and without apology at his abruptness. Then raised an eyebrow at the two and flicked up the image on the communicator and her personnel image from when she joined the Ogawa, the two events apparently only a month or so apart. They matched close enough even without facial recognition. Without yet reading the report he looked at Bambi.
“How did you get this? This is not a Starfleet mugshot.” As he waited for her reply he brought up the image and link on his own console by the magic of Gaggle. The latest and greatest Exonet search engine. “Unless you can explain to me how this links Ally to your assault, I fail to see the relevance and I’m not going to investigate her as a suspect of any kind on mere heresy.”
