Eela grinned. “It might not be every day but I take the ones I get. I even slept well last night imagine that!”

“Good sleep is a blessing.” One Sharah had been graced with recently and would never take for granted. “Now if you can replicate those circumstances so you get more nights like that.”

Walking at a measured but hurried pace, Dasca took in the Complex with an ease to her bearing that was subtly different than even a couple weeks ago. Then again when you had slain a proverbial beast and not only lived to tell the tale but had things work out well, it was bound to put a spring in her step. “I have my follow up appointment with Doctor Eraras next week. I suppose that will be an actual verdict on all my efforts. I just hope it’s been enough. Some days it doesn’t feel like it’s doing anything at all to help the disc issue and then I have days like today where I feel like I could scale a mountain.” She cast a rueful look Sharah’s way. “I could do with some middle ground. Don’t you have that in your magic prescriptions?”

Sharah grinned, “If I come up with a magic cure I will let you know. But you know a lot has changed in the years since your injury. But you seem to be having more good days than hard days.” She kept pace with Eela as they made their way out of the complex. “For now I recommend taking those days you can climb a mountain, to only climb half way. Save some if the energy to carry over.”


Dasca snorted. “A sensible measure. I would like to think that I generally am, but I think you know me all too well at this point. It depends on the area, but I know all too well that I prefer to be on the go. I like being busy, but this job takes that word and creates entirely new meanings.”

She shook her head ruefully. “The ultimate question will be whether my efforts and mindfulness and the work I’ve been doing with Jal’na will be enough to correct my disc compression. It feels like it’s been better, but I honestly do lean on wearing the brace more often than not. We shall see.”

As they continued walking towards the exit, a Lieutenant in sciences blue came around the corner and stopped abruptly before she ran into the pair. Her green eyes went wide. “Captain Dasca,” she whispered, as if she’d seen a ghost.

Eela blinked and took in the Human woman and her curly red hair. She knew her, didn’t she? And then it came to her. Breda Donnelly. “Ensign… no, Lieutenant Donnelly,” she said with a smile. “It’s good to see you again. Congratulations on your promotions.”

Breda did not smile back and was keeping a very neutral expression, even though the underneath tension and hostility would be all too palpable to Dasca and Fayth. “Thank you, ma’am.” She hesitated. “I don’t mean to be rude, but I’m due somewhere and I’m running a bit late.”

She took in the feelings from Donnelly and the curt response that felt very much like a brush off. Well, it was bound to happen sometime, she mused before she nodded. “Of course, Lieutenant. As you were.”

Donelly gave Sharah brief nod of acknowledgement before she took off and it was all Dasca could do to not turn back and watch the woman go. A frown touched her lips but Eela just continued walking, if slightly slower than she had been before.

Sharah was used to giving a neutral and unflustered appearance no matter what she felt. But the raw hostility surprised her. A sense of friendship flowed out of Fayth. Even without touch Dasca would be able to feel it if she was open to such things. She raised her brows as the woman nodded to her and then gave a curt nod. She didn’t need to turn and look she could follow the woman’s presence if she wanted. She did not.

She gave Eela a smile and touched her arm lightly in support. “It’s okay to rely on the brace. That is what it is there fore, and with your schedule, even if you didn’t need it a day here or there, I would recommend you use it. Jal’na won’t let your muscles go weak.” She led the way out of the complex. “You don’t have to share, but are you alright?”
