Tannenn relaxed slightly at the invitation to sit down, more so mentally than outwardly, Keen was wiggling in her pocket practically cackling in laughter at the situation. Hearing that he had no plans and was only reading meant there was no reason to be so cautious. Her cheeks flushed slightly she had been acting silly but well lesson learned. “Thank you,” she took a seat across from him, and relaxed further still, “Well I myself enjoy skating, swimming, ballroom dancing, gymnastics and parkour.” she paused wondering if she was babbling and hoped not, “Keen’s previous hosts were practicing a different type of martial arts style I haven’t found one that I enjoy for myself as of yet.” Tannenn paused and shrugged sheeplishly, “I started collecting and caring for some Bonsai plants as a new passion.” she gave a cheekier grin as she finished with, “Keen used to have a gambling problem so I only play Poker for fun never to win, while chess and kal-toh are just fun for both of us.” her eyes twinkled slightly as she finished speaking. She had given way more information than she had intended but well, he was she could admit, (handsome enough to distract anyone with eyes to appreciate him), she chalked it up to whatever and felt Keen wiggling in continued amusement. She almost added that she enjoyed role-playing games and had dice to go with those games but, she would bring that up later she felt she had said plenty already.

Tiberius looked over at Tannenn while she said down and admired how she looked. He tried not to stare too long and made sure he would subtle about it so she might not notice. After they sat down, he said, “What sort of skating do you enjoy? I really like swimming myself and I believe poker is great as long as you don’t get too involved in the gambling portion and get yourself into trouble.” He was waiting to hear the response to his question but he wanted to finish his throught for her. He smiled at her again while admiring her and how nice her eyes were.

“I enjoy ice skating the most, since you’ve been here are there any good places on the colony to swim or ice skate?” she said with a smile, as she listened to his comments, she wasn’t going to allow Keen to get into trouble like he had previously. “Playing for fun is always amusing.” Tannenn said lightly.

Tiberius laughed inside, at least he hoped it was inside. He then responded to Tannenn, “I myself enjoy ice skating as well. Inline skating is my thing as well. Its a great way for a workout but doing something that is movement as well. I have yet to find anywhere to ice skate, other than the holodeck, so far here on Oed V. I myself enjoy non-gambling poker as well. I might have to invite you to our game. We play with fake chips and just do it for enjoyment.” He then smiled at her again and see how she responded.

“Inline skating, I don’t think I have heard of it. What does it entail?” she asked with a curious smile, as she regarded him, “I would like that as long as I won’t be intruding on your game?” Tannenn said softly, she would enjoy getting to know more people outside of her science department and those on the research project, whom she didn’t know much as of yet they’d been hard at work to get into passive talking.

Tiberius finally laughed out loud, at the idea she did not know what inline skating was. He then responded, “Inline skating is very close to ice skating, especially when it comes to ice hockey. I hope you know what ice hockey is. If not, I am going to need to explain how that works too. Ice skating really has two forms. The dancing type and hockey. Blade makeup on the ice is different. In the early 21st century, the major brand was Roller Blades which is why its another word for them. Its similar to ice skating due to a single inline set of contact, instead of tradition skating which is on 4 points like a car and other late 20th and early 21st century machines. I would love to show you how it works sometime.” He was hoping this would be a way into a date with Tannenn. He wanted to see what her response was. He then said, “You can always join us playing poker. The more the merrier. No limits to how many folks can play. We are not full and we can always add a second or third table if needed.” He then smiled at Tannenn again and did a super brief look at her again.

“I would love to learn how to inline skate, or roller blade, which ever you prefer to call it. It sounds like a lot of fun.” Tannenn said with a delighted smile, then she paused, thought it over briefly, she she nodded her head, “Let me know when your next poker round is. I will happily join in, do we take turns in providing snacks or is one person in charge of that all the time?”

Tiberius smiled at Tannenn and responded, “What do you have going on tomorrow night? Maybe we can go skating tomorrow. The nice thing is, we don’t have to have a specific place to do it, we can just skate on the roads. Just let me know.” He was hoping she would say yes and Tiberius was very curious what outfit she would wear when she came. He then said, “I will see about getting you in. We have it at different locations each time, so it depends on if its at someone’s quarters, there were responsible for the snacks or food. ” He smiled again and he enjoyed speaking with Tannenn. He was very curious of where this would go. He tried not to showed on his body language. He did not want to seem anxious.

“I am free tomorrow evening, what time do you want to meet up and where?” she asked lightly though she was both curious and excited to get to know him more and spend some time learning something new. Tannenn nodded in understanding, “I will look forward to it when the invitation comes.” she ignored Keen wigging in her pocket, his interest at the prospect of playing poker again was a little concerning but not to the point of refusing outright, yet.

Tiberius was excited that she said yes but wanted to make sure she did not see him showing that emotion too much. It was never good to give away too much too early in a potential dating situation. He then responded, “I get off 1900. We could meet around 2000 at the Black Sparrow. As long as we have concrete we can skate. As I mentioned earlier, that is one advantage to in-line skating is you don’t have to have a dedicated facility to do it. Let me know if that works for you.”

Tannenn nodded softly with a smile, “That sounds good to me, I will see you then.” She rose to her feet, “Thank you for the conversation and I will wish you a pleasant rest of your evening.” She had almost asked if he wanted to join her for dinner, but she figured she had taken up a good bit of his time already it was better to give him time to relax on his own after the days work was done.

Tiberius smiled at Tannenn and got up and walked her to the door. He was excited to go out and hang out with her. He wanted to get to know her more and inline skating would give him an excuse to touch Tannenn.
