Posted by Commander Jason Reilly (XO) in Side Sim - Mess Hall (Open to Anyone)
Ot was really late… or early. It was hard to keep such things straight on a ship with few windows and a penchant for running silently.
Reilly walked into the Mess Hall and looked around,, then proceeded to a table next to the LCARS display on the wall that was simulating an overlook into a rain forest. He sat a tray and drink down, pulled the PaDD from under his arm and set it on the table next to the tray. Taking his seat, he began reviewing a few outstanding reports and hummed softly to himself.
She saw his back but knew she’d never be able to sneak up on him. So the Counselor didn’t try. Kadence got herself a glass and moved up behind the XO. Kissing him on the top of the head, she moved to sit beside him. “If I’d known you preferred this view, I would have thought of other places on Risa we could have looked at while there.

They had been a couple since nearly the moment she had come on board. And he had already saved her life once. Well, once officially. But more than that if you counted giving her a reason to keep plugging along. Their schedules had been erratic to the point they hadn’t seen each other in over 48 hours with the exception of a quick passing in the hall outside his quarters they had been sharing for a while. He was heading to work and she was going to shower and change having come from the gym. It was nice to sit and watch him for a moment without something drawing them apart any second now.
