SNIP

Morning Bright” was more concerned for the real person before him, tho he had a uniquely panoramic view of the seen. Tho he was aware that replaying traumatic events was used to treat symptoms arising from them, he was also certain it was to be done under a counselors supervision. =^= Computer end program and identify this crew man, Please=^=

As the sim collapsed into electric fire flys and faded away, the computer responded to the Gnal’s Query =^= Ensin Celador Theinna, Security Devision=^=.
Extending a clawed hand “ Unless you wish me to call medical please set up, I need to see that you are not injured.” =^= Computer, creat a bench and a seen from Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, Earth and a large glass of cool water=^= “Come set here and tell me why you are torturing your self?” offering the human the glass of water.

Celador continued to start at the last spot where the two people were, tears streaming down his face. After a moment he turned to look at the newcommer.

It was his full intention to inform the counselor of the incident, but he wished to spare him the further embarrassment of summoning her here. It seemed the man had lost his mate, and tho his race didn’t experience romantic love there were friends and pack mates he would grieve for.

Ensin “Morning Bright”

“Who are you?” He asked looking at Morning Bright sadly.

-Cel

After giving the man a side long look the Gnal responded “Morning Bright” I’m with the science devision.” Still extending his hand, “You seemed to have had some form of convulsion, would you like me to accompany you to medical? Tho five times the man’s mass his fore limbs were stronger but not five times a strong. He could still carry him if need be with little difficulty.

Try as he might, a half ton toothy Ensin had difficulty not looking threatening.

Ensin “Morning Bright”

Celador looked at Morning Bright, not happy with all that had transpired, even though he knew that he was just trying to help. “I don’t need to go to medical. I’d rather be left alone.” He looked away into the distance.

-Cel

NE Smith had come to Kadence and it was her that stalked towards the holodeck now. Her face pace was out of concern, not anger. Cel was having problems and she knew she had to see to him before it got out of hand. His kicking out Smith from the holodeck was the next in a series of small incidents that was giving the Counselor rise to the idea that Cel would need more than the single once every two week session they currently had going on.

Tapping the door panel to gain access to the holodeck, she walked in to find a scene from Earth and “Morning Bright” standing over Cel who remained on the ground despite what looked like an attempt of his crewmate to help him. She paused and took a deep breath. Coming over to Cel and Morning, she smiled and her voice was pleasant as if she didn’t suspect anything was wrong. “Hello, gentlemen. I noticed the open program. I hope you don’t mind me being here.” She glanced and Morning and nodded her head in both acknowledgement and thanks.

She paused in front of Cel and slowly crouched down. “Hello, Celador. How are you doing?” It was a calm and soothing voice meant to ease whatever stress he was feeling and she hoped whatever happened next, Morning didn’t get caught in the middle.

“Morning Bright’s “ ‘expression’ Clearly shown his concern, with his head tending tord light green and yellow, and his dewlap partially exposed. Tho he had intended to seek out the counselor to inform her of his fellow Crewman’s destress, having her appear was welcome but he was unsure now how to precede with the subject present. “Ensin Theinna appears to be suffering severe emotional destress counselor.” After a pause, “so much so I heard his ‘vocalizations’ in the hall.” Clearly distressed buy the situation, the Gnal seemed to struggle with what to say. The counselor needed information to help the man, but he wished to treat him with dignity and spare him further embarrassment.

Coming to a decision, “I am sorry, but the counselor can’t help you unless she has all the information I can give her.” Just the briefest pause, “He appeared to be running ships logs involving his mates death, and I observed what appeared to be convulsions after he fell.”

Backing up before turning, “I will be in he corridor, if I can be if further assistance.”

Ensin”Morning Bright”

Kadence reached up to touch “Morning Bright“‘s hand as he turned to go. “You are a good friend, Morning Bright. Thank you.” She smiled and nodded before turning back to Cel. Once it was just the two of them in the park, she called out, “Computer, end simulation.” When the room was back to the bare walls and program grid, she spoke to Cel once more. “Cel, it’s Kadence. What happened?” Her voice was once more calm and soothing. She didn’t reach to touch him, but her hand was close enough to his he could reach out and touch her with a scant few inches of movement.

“What?’ He said rather annoyed at all the attention. ” Can’t I just watch in peace?” He turned away from her, trying to hide the pain and anger he felt. He stood up and walked away from Kadence, his back to her and he walked to a corner of the holodeck.

-Cel

Kadence let him move away before standing up. “Why do you want to watch it, Cel?” Her tone was simple and kind. It was as if she was genuinely interested in what he was watching and why? “Is it something I can watch, too, sometime? Something that makes you feel good?”

She stood between him and the door in case he moved towards it. She didn’t want him leaving the holodeck upset this badly.

“It’s my greatest failure.” Celador replied scornfully, his back still to the counselor. “It lead to my incarceration. So no “He snapped. “It’s not something that makes me feel good.”

-Cel

“But you aren’t incarcerated any longer. In fact, you serve on a ship designed to help in such situations, aren’t you?” She kept her voice calm and even as if they were simply chatting about anything in the world. “And if it doesn’t make you feel good, then why do you do it?” It was a simple curiosity question. “Surely you don’t like being nearly killed in a fight, or left drifting alone in space, either. So why not create and endure those simulations? Why this one?”

Kadence

“You see, I’ve nearly been killed in many fights, and been left alone drifting in space. Both of those situations were beyond my control, this failure wasn’t.” He retorted angerly.

-Cel

Not yet entirely sure which failure he was referring to, she shook her head. “Unless you are the one who killed them directly, I highly doubt this was all your fault, Cel.” She was slowly beginning to step towards him. He needed to let this out. Whether he lashed out or broke down, she’d be there for him and help him thru this. “How can you claim this particular failure was all your fault?”

Her voice remained calm as she took a couple steps towards him.

Celador shrugged. “Doesn’t matter.” He looked up at nothing. “I used to be somebody. I used to have power, prestige, respect. I got the girls and was in positions of leadership. Thousands of lives rested on my decisions.” He laughed sadly. “Now I’m nothing. I hide, a coward, avoiding social situations staying away from responsibilities, hoping that everyone forgets me. “

He turned to her. “You can’t help me, there is nothing to help anymore.”

-Cel

Kadence smiled. “I don’t think you realize just how much of that isn’t true, Cel. Do you ever stop to think of where you are? I mean the Wolverine. Have you considered what we are and what we do? This isn’t a crew of misfit lost cadets from the Academy with wet necks and shaking knees. We are a ship of folks with specialties ranging the gambit of skills that most ships in the Fleet and in the Federation, lack considerably.” She held her hands out to encompass the ship around them. “We do things, singularly and in union that DO affect thousands of lives. You don’t realize it, but you do. And if you ever doubt it, I’ll be happy to show you your record since your release. Every mission on this ship and in your life has impacted folks. And your security skills on this ship help see to the safety of those of us in need.” She stepped close enough to touch his arm a moment before dropping it.

“You don’t know this, but I trust you to tell you. I have… skills.. that sometimes call me away from the ship for days at a time. I need someone back here I can trust to have my back when security and silence may be the difference between my life or death or that of another. I know you had an issue in your past and you feel you are still paying for it. But as far as this ship goes, it’s in your past, paid in full. So if the Captain and XO approve, I’d like to ask you to be one of those that is an anchor for me when I’m away. Do you think you could handle that?” She doubted Reilly would be happy with her asking Cel without asking him first. But there it was, already done. And she never mentioned the XO being in the same line of work, so he couldn’t claim she was putting him in jeopardy as well.
