USS Gorkon NCC 82293
"Somewhere On A Beach"
OOC: Morning after the ceremony
((Room Balcony, Hotel Zephyr--San Francisco, California, Earth))
::Lael sighed as she enjoyed her mild tea and dry toast. Her stomach was still re-adjusting to regular food--something she’d found out the hard way after the thai food she’d eaten just after she’d gotten home.::
::Jansen sat his saucer and cup down on the small table of the balcony.::
Orrey: How do you feel this morning?
Rosek: ::grimaces:: Better, I guess.
Orrey: ::He nodded.:: Enjoy your dinner with your father last night?
Rosek: ::laughs:: Not the most awkward conversation I've ever had, but pretty close.
Orrey: I'm sure the awkward will wear off eventually...it's been a long time.
Rosek: Yeah. I don't even remember most of it...the times when I was a baby I mean.
Orrey: Right. I'm still very happy for you that you reached out and he responded so well...I know how much it meant to you to try.
Rosek: ::scowls slightly:: Yeah. My mom owes me an explanation. She flat out lied.
Orrey: ::His eyebrow raised and he looked at her.:: Oh?
Rosek: ::murmurs:: She said he didn't want us when she's the one who left.
Orrey: Ah...I see...any clue why?
Rosek: No. And I'm not ready to ask just yet.
Orrey: ::Shaking his head.:: No, better to pick up the little things instead of smacking the big ones first.
::She sighed, sipping her tea. She wasn't in the mood, but she stayed anyway. Jansen had done so much for her these last several months...including saving her life at least twice. She owed him this much.::
Rosek: ::murmurs:: So what's on your calendar today? More appointments?
Orrey: ::He lifted his cup up and nodded as he took a small sip.:: Got a few more personal things to track down before we get put back on ship. Things to replace and such. What about you?
::Inwardly Jansen sighed a little the half sentence meant she was checked out. He really did enjoy her and their time together...most of the time it seemed like she did too, but it was hard to hold on to her attention sometimes.::
Rosek: ::looks up and smiles:: I don't know what I'll do with myself with you gone. ::brushes her lips against his:: I'm sorry I've been so moody lately. It's been tough re-adjusting. You're my only constant through this. Thank you for staying even when I got hard to live with.
Orrey: ::Jansen smiled into the little kiss. Small moments were nice. Sometimes they were so perfect together.:: Maybe I can come back by and we go out for a bit of afternoon shopping together? Get a little lunch?
Rosek: ::smiles:: I'd like that. I need new clothes until I gain some weight back. ::smirks:: Wanna look good for a certain very special occasion after all.
Orrey: ::Smirking some.:: Lael, dear, you never look bad and you know it.
Rosek: ::grins and kisses him tenderly:: Smart man. But seriously...I know we talked about eloping on Risa, but Mom wants it here...Dad wants a ritual ceremony on Luraul…::smirks:: You're marrying nobility, you know.
Orrey: Better make sure I'm worth it then. ::He smiled at her, but the corner of his mouth twitched a little. He probably wasn't. She really was a princess.::
Rosek: ::grins:: You are to me. That's all that matters. My prince charming.
Orrey: ::Jansen smirked a little and sat forward as he finished his tea.: I really don't know about all that.
Rosek: ::murmurs:: You saved me when my ivory tower was coming apart. ::wraps her arms around his neck and kisses him:: Thank you.
Orrey: ::He returns the kiss softly resting his hands on her hips.:: Always happy to help you. You are special to me. There is always someone you matter to…
Rosek: ::smiles wanly:: What did I do to deserve you?
Orrey: ::He let his hands fall.:: Much more than I did to deserve you…
::She grasped his hands and bit back a gasp at the overwhelming emotion she saw in his eyes.::
Rosek: ::cups his face in her hands::Jansen, what's wrong?
Orrey: What do you mean? ::He gave her a funny look from between her palms.::
Rosek: ::frowns:: I just...you're giving off some funny vibes and I can't make sense of them.
Orrey: ::Jansen took a silent inventory of his mental walls and blocks while looking at her again with a smile.:: We have a lot of fun together.
Rosek: ::gapes as it hits:: Are you…? ::she can't finish the sentence.::
Rosek: ::rasps:: You aren't breaking up with me, are you?
Orrey: ::Jansen sighed a little. Was he? Were they? What was anyone?:: You are very special to me Lael and…..
Rosek: ::chokes:: God, you are! You can't be serious!
::Jansen tipped his head looking at her. Well so much for peacefully talking about feelings.::
::Lael’s chest tightened and she struggled to draw breath. God, she was hyperventilating!::
Orrey: Lael….relax. Breathe.
Rosek: ::growls:: Don't touch me and don't talk to me!
::Jansen took a step back from her and rested against the railing watching her silently.::
::She saw his casual stance and lost it. She saw red. Before he could stop her, her fist connected with his nose with a satisfactory crunch. She didn't look back to check on him. She grabbed her belongings and headed out the door, slamming it behind her.::
::Jansen opened his watering eyes and looked down at the blood dripping on the balcony as his vision cleared and the swirling spiral of drops joined into the single real one before he tipped his head back. Could have gone better. Absolutely could have gone better. He made his way in to get something to stop the bleeding slightly.::
Orrey: oO Would have been nice to get my point out….then she could have hit me if she wanted to..Oo
::Coming out of the bathroom he lowered his head holding the tissue to his nose and his eyes focused on the ring he had given her on the nightstand. Apparently he was…well whatever.::
Orrey: I need a damn scotch…..
