(( Holodeck 2 - Eagle Island ))

The interview segment had just began and the host and guest were seated very comfortably on the couches next to the shoreline. The cool scented ocean breeze drifted towards them and the soft tropical music soothed the senses.


Valentino: So Miss Devar, lovely to see you. That dress really brings out your eyes.


The soft fabric in Arista's olive green beach dress flowed beautifully within the breeze. A few beads were strung along the bottom hem. Her hair fell in soft, damp waves past her shoulders. She chuckled.


Devar: Thank you.


Valentino: :Smiles: You seem to me to be a very clean and tidy woman and you clearly take care in your appearance.


Devar: Always a charmer, Valentino?


She laughed a little.


Valentino: What is the longest amount of time you have gone without a shower?


Her eyes widened as her lips curled into a lopsided smile.


Devar: What kind of question is that?


She stared at him for a moment before breaking out in laughter. The expression on her face revealed that she found the humor in it.


Devar: Well, if you must know, there was a time where I went weeks without a shower. Back in my days in my home universe.


Valentino: Wow, that’s a long time, glad I didn’t run into you then! :Michael teased:


Michael looked around, absorbing the atmosphere and smiling. He turned to look towards the camera as Arista shook her head, laughing under her breath.


Valentino: Arista here is very competent at her job and it seems like she’s been doing it forever! ::Turns to Devar:: What was it that made you choose Starfleet?


Devar: Actually, Starfleet chose me. I keep no secrets about my past. When I first came here, it was a Starfleet ship that found me and a Starfleet doctor who nursed me back to health. It felt like a natural choice, given the circumstances. I felt like I needed to give something back. It wasn't an instant decision but one that made the most sense for me.


The young ensign turns back to the camera. His Italian features seemed perfect for showbiz and he was clearly able to charm to people he spoke to and didn’t have to try very hard.


Valentino: Our First Officer is also an active member of the 13th House of Betazed. ::Turns to the golden/brown haired beauty:: You are spending so much time with Starfleet at the moment, hasn’t affected your standing as a member of the 13th House of Betazed?


That wasn't a widely know fact so she was taken aback for a moment. Then realization hit her and she answered slowly.


Devar: Not at all. It doesn't matter where you are, what you are doing. When you are a member of any House on Betazed, you are accepted for life. My position there is very undefined. I'm not much interested in House politics as my adoptive family would be. This is their timeline and they know the ways in this time better than I. It would be in everyone's best interest if they kept the major workings within that circle. That's not to say I wouldn't be interested in knowing more or involving myself more, but I only have so much to give, given my position and obligations as a Starfleet officer and my devotion to my husband and daughter.


Valentino: Did you have any problems settling in with your adoptive family on Betazed?


She nodded as she stared off a little, towards the water.


Devar: Yes. I mean, given the situation, I think anyone would have some reservations. It was weird separating my adoptive sister to the one in my time. It is something I'm still working through.


He must have noticed the uncomfortability Arista was feeling because Michael quickly shifted the conversation.


Valentino: A lot of the crew know that you’re a telepath. What capabilities do you possess?


Devar: Oh, what any normal Betazoid would possess, Mister Valentino.
