Corinne paced some more, her stomach twisted into the tightest knots. Had she an actual stomach, she might have throw up. She gazed back at Royal, her eyes brighter than usual. Fierce.

“Therapist-patient confidentially.” She pointed at him. “You promised. So do what you think is best. I trust you. But nothing I told you gets shared. I’m not doing this and I won’t be turned into some flashpoint. Youknow the consequences for others and I’d be the reason for any of it. There’s been too much pain already. I’m not going to add to it,” she said, her voice had begun to waver and she looked like she might cry.

” You have trust issues” Ella said perhaps a little out of line but the situation was beginning to distress her, which usually meant she returned to her normal to the point attitude all Elasian shared. “What’s going on here?”

Damn right I do, Dalton thought, though she managed not to spit it at the poor unsuspecting security officer. Any anger she had wasn’t intended for anyone here and there was even a small part of her that recognized that they could very well be unsuspecting victims of her building rage. But she had a right to that rage!

Royal looked at Lokaa. “And she has earned every bit of that, Ensign.” he said softly and without admonishing. He then looked at Corrine. “And nothing will be shared. Right now, its just the simple fact that someone marked you deceased and now ther eis a current assessment clearing you for duty that made flags go up.” He pinched the bridge of his nose, trying to stem the headache he felt coming on. “Right now, we just have to stay calm and try and figure out someway of explaining it to FedSec that won’t make it more of an issue.”

Dalton looked at him with surprise. “And what? The whole lost my physical body because I died in an accident on the holodeck, became a hologram, got trapped in the system by the Dwoud that attacked the ship and then I surfaced again because I and no one else figured out how to? Hell, they considered me lost after all. Everyone already knows this! And now so does Nancy Drew here” she said, gesturing to Ella.

Growling in frustration, Dalton moved across the office, her agitation only rising. “They’re looking because they want to know more. And they’re not going to get it. And then what? I’m deemed hostile? A threat? Tell me Dr. Sinclair how you will save me then!” She was frustrated, angry for sure. But it was the oh so rare holographic tears that ran down her face and disappeared altogether after they hit the air that told the true story.
