|Lieutenant Junior Grade Lael Rosek
USS Gorkon NCC 82293
"Homecoming, Part II"
((Ben Thai Cafe--Nob Hill in San Francisco, California, Earth))
::Lael sat in the dim light of the little cafe, staring out the window as she waited for Jansen to arrive. He’d had to stay behind to finish up with a few patients. The crew was having a hard time adjusting to being back in their home universe. Lael had left yesterday morning from the Station with Jansen due to follow today. Despite her desperation to see her family and friends, she wanted a bit of time to herself before facing the overwhelming questions that were sure to come.::
Orrey: ::Jansen entered the cafe and looked around spotting the pretty lady in the corner he made his way to the table.:: Hi there.
::She looked up from her cup of tea and smiled wanly.::
Rosek: Hi yourself.
Orrey: So tell me about your day. ::He settled at the table with a smile.::
Rosek: ::shrugs:: Pretty boring. ::gaze drops to her hands:: I received another communique from that investigator I talked to before we got stuck in the other universe. ::murmurs:: They found Janel murdered.
Orrey: ::He reached out and rubbed her arm.:: I'm sorry to hear that.
Rosek ::smiles wanly and lays her hand on top of his then squeezes:: Thank you. But he was in pretty bad shape after the Sicarius mission. At least he's not suffering anymore.
Orrey: Just because it's better doesn't make it better. ::He turns his hand over and squeezes her hand back.:: Do they have any leads?
Rosek: ::murmurs:: Not that I know of.
Orrey: ::He nodded his head more.:: Understandable, what about something slightly happier like our trip you wanted us to take?
Rosek: ::smiles:: Yeah. I could use a bit of happy right now.
Orrey: Well, what news have you got about the passage then? I know you said you wanted to arrange that.
Rosek: ::nods:: Tomorrow morning. My brother is supposed to meet us at the shuttle port.
Orrey: Oh? Where from there?
Rosek: Ford International is only about a 30-minute hovercar ride from Cedar Springs.
Orrey: ::Smiling.:: Should be fun then.
Rosek: Don't worry. I won't let Kellan give you too hard of a time. Now my mother...I can't promise anything.
Orrey: Oh I'm sure it will be fine.
Rosek ::chuckles and sips her tea:: Hurricane Adelynn, look out for Tsunami Jansen.
Orrey: Oh now I'm not that bad. ::Chuckling.::
Rosek: ::grins and pats his hand:: Of course not, dear.
Orrey: Hey now, it could be worse.
Rosek: ::chuckles:: No comment.
Orrey: Mhmm I'm sure. So what do you want to do until tomorrow morning?
Rosek: ::arches an eyebrow:: Been awhile since we've had a night to ourselves.
Orrey: ::smirking.:: A good night’s sleep does sound good, you are right.
Rosek: ::smirks:: You won't be sleeping if I have anything to say about it.
Orrey: ::laughing.:: Watch me try.
::Lael narrowed her eyes playfully.::
Orrey: You better work hard lady.
