PostSubject: Kalen/Alyssa Unexpected Surprise   Tue Feb 07, 2012 3:41 am

||USS Fenris
||Alyssa's Quarters
||1330

Ever since he had returned from the planet, Kalen's thoughts had been of the ship. The crew. Alyssa. Alyssa was the thought that dominated the forefront of his mind. The way she smiled. Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Alyssa heard the chime and groaned. She didn't want to move from her bed. Better yet, she was unavailable and that meant no counseling. She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew. "Shh..no more questions." He grinned at her and swept her off her feet, letting her door close behind them as he walked away with her, into the hallways and towards his intended goal. "Now I know you're tired and I am probably keeping you from your well earned rest, but I have something to show you." He took them towards the holodeck where his further surprise awaited them. As he got to the doors, he set her down. He looked into her eyes, "Do you trust me?"

She looked at him. She couldn't believe that he just carried her to the holodeck, and she freely allowed him to. What the crap was going on? She didn't normally allow any guy to do this, and yet she was letting him do it. "Um... I don't know. Could we... um..." She wasn't communicating well, and frankly was still in shock. She held her hands up, not wanting him to speak or change his mind. She shook her head, and began to think. It's a simple question. The answer is either yes or no. Since I freely allowed him to carry me here, it means that I trust him to some degree. Doesn't help that I'm curious as to why we are here. She pulled her hands downs. "I trust you. Which you should know is very hard for me to do."

He smiled at her, "I can understand that. Don't worry, I won't get you into anything you can't get out of if you just say the word." He touched the panel and as the doors started to open he moved to her, one hand taking hers in it, the other covering her as as the holodeck doors opened. "This is where you trust me." He walked her into the room, hoping he still had some sense in what a woman desired for a surprise romantic dinner. Wooing someone wasn't in his repertoire as of late, so he was rather unused to the whole thing. There were flowers, candles and a table set for two. He of course had tried his best to set this up so no one would interfere and as the doors closed behind them, he took his hand away from her eyes to let her soak in the room. "Computer, begin simulation." He stated simply. A waiter opened a door to their left and walked to greet them. "How's this for an escape?"

Probably because she knew that their would be food soon, not to mention a chance to get to know Kalen a little better. She had a lot on her mind, and would need to decide very soon if she was going to stay.She shook her head to clear her mind. She didn't want to worry about that, besides she believed this to be a date so she was going to enjoy it... at least attempt to.

He pulled out her chair and pushed her into her place at the table. He smiled softly and sat down across from her. "It took a fair amount of planning, but the actual execution wasn't too terribly taxing." He waved his hand around at the room, "Twentieth century American restaurant. I picked the 1980s because it seemed to be the most appropriate for what I wanted." The waiter stood by their table, "Would you like anything to drink, Lieutenant?" He grinned at her, hoping that his attempt to get some time with her alone was going well. "Glad to be back?"

Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Alyssa heard the chime and groaned. She didn't want to move from her bed. Better yet, she was unavailable and that meant no counseling. She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew. "Shh..no more questions." He grinned at her and swept her off her feet, letting her door close behind them as he walked away with her, into the hallways and towards his intended goal. "Now I know you're tired and I am probably keeping you from your well earned rest, but I have something to show you." He took them towards the holodeck where his further surprise awaited them. As he got to the doors, he set her down. He looked into her eyes, "Do you trust me?"

She looked at him. She couldn't believe that he just carried her to the holodeck, and she freely allowed him to. What the crap was going on? She didn't normally allow any guy to do this, and yet she was letting him do it. "Um... I don't know. Could we... um..." She wasn't communicating well, and frankly was still in shock. She held her hands up, not wanting him to speak or change his mind. She shook her head, and began to think. It's a simple question. The answer is either yes or no. Since I freely allowed him to carry me here, it means that I trust him to some degree. Doesn't help that I'm curious as to why we are here. She pulled her hands downs. "I trust you. Which you should know is very hard for me to do."

He smiled at her, "I can understand that. Don't worry, I won't get you into anything you can't get out of if you just say the word." He touched the panel and as the doors started to open he moved to her, one hand taking hers in it, the other covering her as as the holodeck doors opened. "This is where you trust me." He walked her into the room, hoping he still had some sense in what a woman desired for a surprise romantic dinner. Wooing someone wasn't in his repertoire as of late, so he was rather unused to the whole thing. There were flowers, candles and a table set for two. He of course had tried his best to set this up so no one would interfere and as the doors closed behind them, he took his hand away from her eyes to let her soak in the room. "Computer, begin simulation." He stated simply. A waiter opened a door to their left and walked to greet them. "How's this for an escape?"

She looked around. Couldn't believe that she was going to share a meal with Kalen, alone. "Wow. Must have taken you a while to set this up. What era did you use?" She was actually happy about this. Probably because she knew that their would be food soon, not to mention a chance to get to know Kalen a little better. She had a lot on her mind, and would need to decide very soon if she was going to stay.She shook her head to clear her mind. She didn't want to worry about that, besides she believed this to be a date so she was going to enjoy it... at least attempt to.

He pulled out her chair and pushed her into her place at the table. He smiled softly and sat down across from her. "It took a fair amount of planning, but the actual execution wasn't too terribly taxing." He waved his hand around at the room, "Twentieth century American restaurant. I picked the 1980s because it seemed to be the most appropriate for what I wanted." The waiter stood by their table, "Would you like anything to drink, Lieutenant?" He grinned at her, hoping that his attempt to get some time with her alone was going well. "Glad to be back?"

She smiled. "It's good to be back, even if it is just for a little while." She hadn't decided rather or not she was staying. "Water is fine. Are you glad?"

||USS Fenris
||Alyssa's Quarters
||1330

Ever since he had returned from the planet, Kalen's thoughts had been of the ship. The crew. Alyssa. Alyssa was the thought that dominated the forefront of his mind. The way she smiled. Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Alyssa heard the chime and groaned. She didn't want to move from her bed. Better yet, she was unavailable and that meant no counseling. She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't.

She smiled. "It's good to be back, even if it is just for a little while." She hadn't decided rather or not she was staying. "Water is fine. Are you glad?"

He asked the waiter to bring them two waters and nodded, "I hope you decide to stick around, though don't take this as a move to influence your decision. I just..wanted to be with you." After what had gone down on the planet, he was glad that the majority of them remained unharmed. He smiled, "I'm glad to see you, to be here with you. That's all that really matters right now." He took a sip of his water upon the waiter's return, and relaxed in his chair, comforted by her presence and the atmosphere of the room. It just seemed right.

She liked that he was able to relax around her. It made her comfortable enough to relax as well. So she relaxed while she debated what question to ask first. Taking a slip of water, she decided the basic questions should probably be asked first. "So... what's your family like?"

He shook his head and waved his hand around the room, "This ship is my home, it's crew is my family. That's all I have. My parents were killed by Borg. I don't have any siblings, and as far as I was ever aware, I never had an extended family. They never really talked about it. My father was a cold, calculated man. I think emotion must have pained him." He shook his head, and smiled at her, "But lets move on to happier things. This is after all, a very happy moment for me."

Ever since he had returned from the planet, Kalen's thoughts had been of the ship. The crew. Alyssa. Alyssa was the thought that dominated the forefront of his mind. The way she smiled. Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her.

She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew. "Shh..no more questions." He grinned at her and swept her off her feet, letting her door close behind them as he walked away with her, into the hallways and towards his intended goal. "Now I know you're tired and I am probably keeping you from your well earned rest, but I have something to show you." He took them towards the holodeck where his further surprise awaited them.

He smiled at her, "I can understand that. Don't worry, I won't get you into anything you can't get out of if you just say the word." He touched the panel and as the doors started to open he moved to her, one hand taking hers in it, the other covering her as as the holodeck doors opened. "This is where you trust me." He walked her into the room, hoping he still had some sense in what a woman desired for a surprise romantic dinner. Wooing someone wasn't in his repertoire as of late, so he was rather unused to the whole thing. There were flowers, candles and a table set for two. He of course had tried his best to set this up so no one would interfere and as the doors closed behind them, he took his hand away from her eyes to let her soak in the room. "Computer, begin simulation." He stated simply. A waiter opened a door to their left and walked to greet them. "How's this for an escape?"

She looked around. Couldn't believe that she was going to share a meal with Kalen, alone. "Wow. Must have taken you a while to set this up. What era did you use?" She was actually happy about this. Probably because she knew that their would be food soon, not to mention a chance to get to know Kalen a little better. She had a lot on her mind, and would need to decide very soon if she was going to stay.She shook her head to clear her mind. She didn't want to worry about that, besides she believed this to be a date so she was going to enjoy it... at least attempt to.

He pulled out her chair and pushed her into her place at the table. He smiled softly and sat down across from her. "It took a fair amount of planning, but the actual execution wasn't too terribly taxing." He waved his hand around at the room, "Twentieth century American restaurant. I picked the 1980s because it seemed to be the most appropriate for what I wanted." The waiter stood by their table, "Would you like anything to drink, Lieutenant?" He grinned at her, hoping that his attempt to get some time with her alone was going well. "Glad to be back?"

She smiled. "It's good to be back, even if it is just for a little while." She hadn't decided rather or not she was staying. "Water is fine. Are you glad?"

He asked the waiter to bring them two waters and nodded, "I hope you decide to stick around, though don't take this as a move to influence your decision. I just..wanted to be with you." After what had gone down on the planet, he was glad that the majority of them remained unharmed. He smiled, "I'm glad to see you, to be here with you. That's all that really matters right now." He took a sip of his water upon the waiter's return, and relaxed in his chair, comforted by her presence and the atmosphere of the room. It just seemed right.

She laughed. "It's amazing how easy it is for you to be comfortable. I'll try not to let you wanting me to stay influence my decision, but no promises." She couldn't help smiling. She liked that he was able to relax around her. It made her comfortable enough to relax as well. So she relaxed while she debated what question to ask first. Taking a slip of water, she decided the basic questions should probably be asked first. "So... what's your family like?"

He chuckled warmly, "I just want you to know that I'm not trying to guide your hand or force you one way or the other is all. But we already talked about that." He grinned back at her until she asked her first question. A somber expression took over his face and he sighed softly. He shook his head and waved his hand around the room, "This ship is my home, it's crew is my family. That's all I have. My parents were killed by Borg. I don't have any siblings, and as far as I was ever aware, I never had an extended family. They never really talked about it. My father was a cold, calculated man. I think emotion must have pained him." He shook his head, and smiled at her, "But lets move on to happier things. This is after all, a very happy moment for me."

"Sorry, I forgot. This is weird for me." She shyly smiled. "I haven't been on a date in almost two years. So I'm a bit uncomfortable, but trying. Family isn't a happy subject, so I guess that means I get to ask stupid questions." Now she had to think of some stupid questions to ask. Mainly because she didn't want to talk about her family. She was fidgeting with her napkin that was still on the table. "Okay, what's your favorite color?"

PostSubject: Re: Kalen/Alyssa Unexpected Surprise   Thu Feb 09, 2012 2:54 am

||USS Fenris
||Alyssa's Quarters
||1330

Ever since he had returned from the planet, Kalen's thoughts had been of the ship. The crew. Alyssa. Alyssa was the thought that dominated the forefront of his mind. The way she smiled. Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Alyssa heard the chime and groaned. She didn't want to move from her bed. Better yet, she was unavailable and that meant no counseling. She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew. "Shh..no more questions." He grinned at her and swept her off her feet, letting her door close behind them as he walked away with her, into the hallways and towards his intended goal. "Now I know you're tired and I am probably keeping you from your well earned rest, but I have something to show you." He took them towards the holodeck where his further surprise awaited them. As he got to the doors, he set her down. He looked into her eyes, "Do you trust me?"

She looked at him. She couldn't believe that he just carried her to the holodeck, and she freely allowed him to. What the crap was going on? She didn't normally allow any guy to do this, and yet she was letting him do it. "Um... I don't know. Could we... um..." She wasn't communicating well, and frankly was still in shock. She held her hands up, not wanting him to speak or change his mind. She shook her head, and began to think. It's a simple question. The answer is either yes or no. Since I freely allowed him to carry me here, it means that I trust him to some degree. Doesn't help that I'm curious as to why we are here. She pulled her hands downs. "I trust you. Which you should know is very hard for me to do."

He smiled at her, "I can understand that. Don't worry, I won't get you into anything you can't get out of if you just say the word." He touched the panel and as the doors started to open he moved to her, one hand taking hers in it, the other covering her as as the holodeck doors opened. "This is where you trust me." He walked her into the room, hoping he still had some sense in what a woman desired for a surprise romantic dinner. Wooing someone wasn't in his repertoire as of late, so he was rather unused to the whole thing. There were flowers, candles and a table set for two. He of course had tried his best to set this up so no one would interfere and as the doors closed behind them, he took his hand away from her eyes to let her soak in the room. "Computer, begin simulation." He stated simply. A waiter opened a door to their left and walked to greet them. "How's this for an escape?"

She looked around. Couldn't believe that she was going to share a meal with Kalen, alone. "Wow. Must have taken you a while to set this up. What era did you use?" She was actually happy about this. Probably because she knew that their would be food soon, not to mention a chance to get to know Kalen a little better. She had a lot on her mind, and would need to decide very soon if she was going to stay.She shook her head to clear her mind. She didn't want to worry about that, besides she believed this to be a date so she was going to enjoy it... at least attempt to.

He pulled out her chair and pushed her into her place at the table. He smiled softly and sat down across from her. "It took a fair amount of planning, but the actual execution wasn't too terribly taxing." He waved his hand around at the room, "Twentieth century American restaurant. I picked the 1980s because it seemed to be the most appropriate for what I wanted." The waiter stood by their table, "Would you like anything to drink, Lieutenant?" He grinned at her, hoping that his attempt to get some time with her alone was going well. "Glad to be back?"

He shook his head and waved his hand around the room, "This ship is my home, it's crew is my family. That's all I have. My parents were killed by Borg. I don't have any siblings, and as far as I was ever aware, I never had an extended family. They never really talked about it. My father was a cold, calculated man. I think emotion must have pained him." He shook his head, and smiled at her, "But lets move on to happier things. This is after all, a very happy moment for me."

She was fidgeting with her napkin that was still on the table. "Okay, what's your favorite color?"

"Don't worry about it. It was just a somber subject and I don't want to ruin a good thing by talking about sad things." He thought for a moment about the last time he went on a date. Like a date date. "My last one was probably about the same amount of time or close to it. So it's been a while for us both." He avoided talking to her about her family so he smiled at her question. He grabbed the neckline of his uniform, "I dunno. I really like the red. But before getting used to it, my favorite color was a rich, deep purple." He thought about what he wanted to ask her, "Where would you go, if you left?"

She hoped that she didn't have to explain, but knew she probably would need to sooner or later. "Favorite food?"

He pondered what she meant by that, but assumed it had something to do with her family and therefor an equally nonessential subject about which to breach. He assumed she would talk to him about it when she felt comfortable enough with him. So he would wait. He pondered for a moment, "I love a good Iowa bred steak. Though there is so much in the galaxy to try and to sample. I have had quite a bit of good food that I didn't even expect to be good. Yourself?"

PostSubject: Re: Kalen/Alyssa Unexpected Surprise   Thu Feb 09, 2012 5:06 am

||USS Fenris
||Alyssa's Quarters
||1330

Ever since he had returned from the planet, Kalen's thoughts had been of the ship. The crew. Alyssa. Alyssa was the thought that dominated the forefront of his mind. The way she smiled. Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Alyssa heard the chime and groaned. She didn't want to move from her bed. Better yet, she was unavailable and that meant no counseling. She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew. "Shh..no more questions." He grinned at her and swept her off her feet, letting her door close behind them as he walked away with her, into the hallways and towards his intended goal. "Now I know you're tired and I am probably keeping you from your well earned rest, but I have something to show you." He took them towards the holodeck where his further surprise awaited them. As he got to the doors, he set her down. He looked into her eyes, "Do you trust me?"

She looked at him. She couldn't believe that he just carried her to the holodeck, and she freely allowed him to. What the crap was going on? She didn't normally allow any guy to do this, and yet she was letting him do it. "Um... I don't know. Could we... um..." She wasn't communicating well, and frankly was still in shock. She held her hands up, not wanting him to speak or change his mind. She shook her head, and began to think. It's a simple question. The answer is either yes or no. Since I freely allowed him to carry me here, it means that I trust him to some degree. Doesn't help that I'm curious as to why we are here. She pulled her hands downs. "I trust you. Which you should know is very hard for me to do."

He smiled at her, "I can understand that. Don't worry, I won't get you into anything you can't get out of if you just say the word." He touched the panel and as the doors started to open he moved to her, one hand taking hers in it, the other covering her as as the holodeck doors opened. "This is where you trust me." He walked her into the room, hoping he still had some sense in what a woman desired for a surprise romantic dinner. Wooing someone wasn't in his repertoire as of late, so he was rather unused to the whole thing. There were flowers, candles and a table set for two. He of course had tried his best to set this up so no one would interfere and as the doors closed behind them, he took his hand away from her eyes to let her soak in the room. "Computer, begin simulation." He stated simply. A waiter opened a door to their left and walked to greet them. "How's this for an escape?"

She looked around. Couldn't believe that she was going to share a meal with Kalen, alone. "Wow. Must have taken you a while to set this up. What era did you use?" She was actually happy about this. Probably because she knew that their would be food soon, not to mention a chance to get to know Kalen a little better. She had a lot on her mind, and would need to decide very soon if she was going to stay.She shook her head to clear her mind. She didn't want to worry about that, besides she believed this to be a date so she was going to enjoy it... at least attempt to.

He pulled out her chair and pushed her into her place at the table. He smiled softly and sat down across from her. "It took a fair amount of planning, but the actual execution wasn't too terribly taxing." He waved his hand around at the room, "Twentieth century American restaurant. I picked the 1980s because it seemed to be the most appropriate for what I wanted." The waiter stood by their table, "Would you like anything to drink, Lieutenant?" He grinned at her, hoping that his attempt to get some time with her alone was going well. "Glad to be back?"

She smiled. "It's good to be back, even if it is just for a little while." She hadn't decided rather or not she was staying. "Water is fine. Are you glad?"

He asked the waiter to bring them two waters and nodded, "I hope you decide to stick around, though don't take this as a move to influence your decision. I just..wanted to be with you." After what had gone down on the planet, he was glad that the majority of them remained unharmed. He smiled, "I'm glad to see you, to be here with you. That's all that really matters right now." He took a sip of his water upon the waiter's return, and relaxed in his chair, comforted by her presence and the atmosphere of the room. It just seemed right.

She laughed. "It's amazing how easy it is for you to be comfortable. I'll try not to let you wanting me to stay influence my decision, but no promises." She couldn't help smiling. She liked that he was able to relax around her. It made her comfortable enough to relax as well. So she relaxed while she debated what question to ask first. Taking a slip of water, she decided the basic questions should probably be asked first. "So... what's your family like?"

He chuckled warmly, "I just want you to know that I'm not trying to guide your hand or force you one way or the other is all. But we already talked about that." He grinned back at her until she asked her first question. A somber expression took over his face and he sighed softly. He shook his head and waved his hand around the room, "This ship is my home, it's crew is my family. That's all I have. My parents were killed by Borg. I don't have any siblings, and as far as I was ever aware, I never had an extended family. They never really talked about it. My father was a cold, calculated man. I think emotion must have pained him." He shook his head, and smiled at her, "But lets move on to happier things. This is after all, a very happy moment for me."

"Sorry, I forgot. This is weird for me." She shyly smiled. "I haven't been on a date in almost two years. So I'm a bit uncomfortable, but trying. Family isn't a happy subject, so I guess that means I get to ask stupid questions." Now she had to think of some stupid questions to ask. Mainly because she didn't want to talk about her family. She was fidgeting with her napkin that was still on the table. "Okay, what's your favorite color?"

"Don't worry about it. It was just a somber subject and I don't want to ruin a good thing by talking about sad things." He thought for a moment about the last time he went on a date. Like a date date. "My last one was probably about the same amount of time or close to it. So it's been a while for us both." He avoided talking to her about her family so he smiled at her question. He grabbed the neckline of his uniform, "I dunno. I really like the red. But before getting used to it, my favorite color was a rich, deep purple." He thought about what he wanted to ask her, "Where would you go, if you left?"

She coughed. She had to look at him to confirm that she had heard him correctly. "Where would I go?" She repeated. "Either back to my old station or home. Though, I would prefer to go back to my old station. Home isn't a good place to be. So I'd pretty much take anywhere over going home."

Though there is so much in the galaxy to try and to sample. I have had quite a bit of good food that I didn't even expect to be good. Yourself?"

"Pasta. Anything that has to do with pasta. My mom's homemade pasta salad is the best. I do agree that their is a lot to sample. I just don't know if there's enough time to try it all." She responded without having to actually think about. She found it a bit weird that she had mention her mom. She didn't want to. It just came out. "Did you always want to be a pilot?"

They gave us basic lessons on how to fly shuttles and the like at the Academy, but I was an engineer. But when I was given my choice of assignments, with what little power of choice I was offered by Starfleet, something about this ship called to me. So I went through the training to be the pilot for this ship and met up with her as soon as I could. Maybe it was what I was meant for." He smiled at her and nodded to the waiter who had of course just replicated what they desired for dinner. He didn't ask her anything else, he just considered what they were, and what they could be together. If she had more to ask, she very well could do that.

He pondered what she meant by that, but assumed it had something to do with her family and therefor an equally nonessential subject about which to breach. He assumed she would talk to him about it when she felt comfortable enough with him. So he would wait. He pondered for a moment, "I love a good Iowa bred steak. Though there is so much in the galaxy to try and to sample. I have had quite a bit of good food that I didn't even expect to be good. Yourself?"

"Pasta. Anything that has to do with pasta. My mom's homemade pasta salad is the best. I do agree that their is a lot to sample. I just don't know if there's enough time to try it all." She responded without having to actually think about. She found it a bit weird that she had mention her mom. She didn't want to. It just came out. "Did you always want to be a pilot?"

He chuckled softly, "Oh yes, pasta can be quite amazing at times." He shook his head, "I never intended to even be a pilot.

He smiled at her and nodded to the waiter who had of course just replicated what they desired for dinner. He didn't ask her anything else, he just considered what they were, and what they could be together. If she had more to ask, she very well could do that.

"If only that's how I got my duties." she smiled. "At least you're doing what you want. That's the important part. Is there anything you wan to discuss?" She was the one asking questions, and learning a lot about him. She thought it only right that he at least gets to ask her questions. Though, somethings weren't open to discussion... not yet anyways. She felt like she could tell him things, but she just wasn't ready. Or she was simply being a coward. Either way, it was his turn to pick the topic.

PostSubject: Re: Kalen/Alyssa Unexpected Surprise   Sat Feb 11, 2012 3:16 am

||USS Fenris
||Alyssa's Quarters
||1330

Ever since he had returned from the planet, Kalen's thoughts had been of the ship. The crew. Alyssa. Alyssa was the thought that dominated the forefront of his mind. The way she smiled. Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Alyssa heard the chime and groaned. She didn't want to move from her bed. Better yet, she was unavailable and that meant no counseling. She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew. "Shh..no more questions." He grinned at her and swept her off her feet, letting her door close behind them as he walked away with her, into the hallways and towards his intended goal. "Now I know you're tired and I am probably keeping you from your well earned rest, but I have something to show you." He took them towards the holodeck where his further surprise awaited them. As he got to the doors, he set her down. He looked into her eyes, "Do you trust me?"

She looked at him. She couldn't believe that he just carried her to the holodeck, and she freely allowed him to. What the crap was going on? She didn't normally allow any guy to do this, and yet she was letting him do it. "Um... I don't know. Could we... um..." She wasn't communicating well, and frankly was still in shock. She held her hands up, not wanting him to speak or change his mind. She shook her head, and began to think. It's a simple question. The answer is either yes or no. Since I freely allowed him to carry me here, it means that I trust him to some degree. Doesn't help that I'm curious as to why we are here. She pulled her hands downs. "I trust you. Which you should know is very hard for me to do."

He smiled at her, "I can understand that. Don't worry, I won't get you into anything you can't get out of if you just say the word." He touched the panel and as the doors started to open he moved to her, one hand taking hers in it, the other covering her as as the holodeck doors opened. "This is where you trust me." He walked her into the room, hoping he still had some sense in what a woman desired for a surprise romantic dinner. Wooing someone wasn't in his repertoire as of late, so he was rather unused to the whole thing. There were flowers, candles and a table set for two. He of course had tried his best to set this up so no one would interfere and as the doors closed behind them, he took his hand away from her eyes to let her soak in the room. "Computer, begin simulation." He stated simply. A waiter opened a door to their left and walked to greet them. "How's this for an escape?"

She looked around. Couldn't believe that she was going to share a meal with Kalen, alone. "Wow. Must have taken you a while to set this up. What era did you use?" She was actually happy about this. Probably because she knew that their would be food soon, not to mention a chance to get to know Kalen a little better. She had a lot on her mind, and would need to decide very soon if she was going to stay.She shook her head to clear her mind. She didn't want to worry about that, besides she believed this to be a date so she was going to enjoy it... at least attempt to.

He pulled out her chair and pushed her into her place at the table. He smiled softly and sat down across from her. "It took a fair amount of planning, but the actual execution wasn't too terribly taxing." He waved his hand around at the room, "Twentieth century American restaurant. I picked the 1980s because it seemed to be the most appropriate for what I wanted." The waiter stood by their table, "Would you like anything to drink, Lieutenant?" He grinned at her, hoping that his attempt to get some time with her alone was going well. "Glad to be back?"

She smiled. "It's good to be back, even if it is just for a little while." She hadn't decided rather or not she was staying. "Water is fine. Are you glad?"

He asked the waiter to bring them two waters and nodded, "I hope you decide to stick around, though don't take this as a move to influence your decision. I just..wanted to be with you." After what had gone down on the planet, he was glad that the majority of them remained unharmed. He smiled, "I'm glad to see you, to be here with you. That's all that really matters right now." He took a sip of his water upon the waiter's return, and relaxed in his chair, comforted by her presence and the atmosphere of the room. It just seemed right.

She laughed. "It's amazing how easy it is for you to be comfortable. I'll try not to let you wanting me to stay influence my decision, but no promises." She couldn't help smiling. She liked that he was able to relax around her. It made her comfortable enough to relax as well. So she relaxed while she debated what question to ask first. Taking a slip of water, she decided the basic questions should probably be asked first. "So... what's your family like?"

He chuckled warmly, "I just want you to know that I'm not trying to guide your hand or force you one way or the other is all. But we already talked about that." He grinned back at her until she asked her first question. A somber expression took over his face and he sighed softly. He shook his head and waved his hand around the room, "This ship is my home, it's crew is my family. That's all I have. My parents were killed by Borg. I don't have any siblings, and as far as I was ever aware, I never had an extended family. They never really talked about it. My father was a cold, calculated man. I think emotion must have pained him." He shook his head, and smiled at her, "But lets move on to happier things. This is after all, a very happy moment for me."

"Sorry, I forgot. This is weird for me." She shyly smiled. "I haven't been on a date in almost two years. So I'm a bit uncomfortable, but trying. Family isn't a happy subject, so I guess that means I get to ask stupid questions." Now she had to think of some stupid questions to ask. Mainly because she didn't want to talk about her family. She was fidgeting with her napkin that was still on the table. "Okay, what's your favorite color?"

"Don't worry about it. It was just a somber subject and I don't want to ruin a good thing by talking about sad things." He thought for a moment about the last time he went on a date. Like a date date. "My last one was probably about the same amount of time or close to it. So it's been a while for us both." He avoided talking to her about her family so he smiled at her question. He grabbed the neckline of his uniform, "I dunno. I really like the red. But before getting used to it, my favorite color was a rich, deep purple." He thought about what he wanted to ask her, "Where would you go, if you left?"

She coughed. She had to look at him to confirm that she had heard him correctly. "Where would I go?" She repeated. "Either back to my old station or home. Though, I would prefer to go back to my old station. Home isn't a good place to be. So I'd pretty much take anywhere over going home." She hoped that she didn't have to explain, but knew she probably would need to sooner or later. "Favorite food?"

He pondered what she meant by that, but assumed it had something to do with her family and therefor an equally nonessential subject about which to breach. He assumed she would talk to him about it when she felt comfortable enough with him. So he would wait. He pondered for a moment, "I love a good Iowa bred steak.

She felt like she could tell him things, but she just wasn't ready. Or she was simply being a coward. Either way, it was his turn to pick the topic.

He grabbed his silverware and dug into his steak with vigor. He was hungry, wondering what she meant by her first statement. He nodded, but kept his mouth closed to finish his bite. He smiled softly and wondered what he wanted to ask her. What did he want to know about her? Well there were a few things, but he wouldn't let his thoughts stray there. Taking it slow was the better option than letting his mind wander to what could be. He had to keep his mind in less..soft..warm..he shook his head. He cleared his mind and focused on something inane. Baseball..baseball. Yes. That was better. He chuckled softly and gazed at her over their dinner table, "Well, let me think for a moment. Well for one, after tonight..when can I see you again?" He thought over his shifts for the next while, hoping they could find a time that would work for them.

Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew.

She hoped that she didn't have to explain, but knew she probably would need to sooner or later. "Favorite food?"

He pondered what she meant by that, but assumed it had something to do with her family and therefor an equally nonessential subject about which to breach. He assumed she would talk to him about it when she felt comfortable enough with him. So he would wait. He pondered for a moment, "I love a good Iowa bred steak. Though there is so much in the galaxy to try and to sample. I have had quite a bit of good food that I didn't even expect to be good. Yourself?"

"Pasta. Anything that has to do with pasta. My mom's homemade pasta salad is the best. I do agree that their is a lot to sample. I just don't know if there's enough time to try it all." She responded without having to actually think about. She found it a bit weird that she had mention her mom. She didn't want to. It just came out. "Did you always want to be a pilot?"

He chuckled softly, "Oh yes, pasta can be quite amazing at times." He shook his head, "I never intended to even be a pilot. They gave us basic lessons on how to fly shuttles and the like at the Academy, but I was an engineer. But when I was given my choice of assignments, with what little power of choice I was offered by Starfleet, something about this ship called to me. So I went through the training to be the pilot for this ship and met up with her as soon as I could. Maybe it was what I was meant for." He smiled at her and nodded to the waiter who had of course just replicated what they desired for dinner. He didn't ask her anything else, he just considered what they were, and what they could be together. If she had more to ask, she very well could do that.

"If only that's how I got my duties." she smiled. "At least you're doing what you want. That's the important part. Is there anything you wan to discuss?" She was the one asking questions, and learning a lot about him. She thought it only right that he at least gets to ask her questions. Though, somethings weren't open to discussion... not yet anyways. She felt like she could tell him things, but she just wasn't ready. Or she was simply being a coward. Either way, it was his turn to pick the topic.

He grabbed his silverware and dug into his steak with vigor. He was hungry, wondering what she meant by her first statement. He nodded, but kept his mouth closed to finish his bite. He smiled softly and wondered what he wanted to ask her. What did he want to know about her? Well there were a few things, but he wouldn't let his thoughts stray there. Taking it slow was the better option than letting his mind wander to what could be. He had to keep his mind in less..soft..warm..he shook his head. He cleared his mind and focused on something inane. Baseball..baseball. Yes. That was better. He chuckled softly and gazed at her over their dinner table, "Well, let me think for a moment. Well for one, after tonight..when can I see you again?" He thought over his shifts for the next while, hoping they could find a time that would work for them.

She didn't want to get his hopes up incase she chose not to stay. But she did want to know how he would react. "Well, I'm off for the next 24 hours so we could see each other later tonight. After all, our quarters are sort of in the same location." She watched as he nearly chocked on his food. She grinned, and tried not to laugh. "My cousin comes in some time tonight or tomorrow. And the Captain would most likely want to know rather or not I'm staying. Making it so that you probably have the next 24 hours to be with me. I'll be able to tell you more when I make my decision." She had to focus on something other than staring into his eyes. So she simply started eating her pasta, and focusing on the plate.

Since I freely allowed him to carry me here, it means that I trust him to some degree. Doesn't help that I'm curious as to why we are here. She pulled her hands downs. "I trust you. Which you should know is very hard for me to do."

He smiled at her, "I can understand that. Don't worry, I won't get you into anything you can't get out of if you just say the word." He touched the panel and as the doors started to open he moved to her, one hand taking hers in it, the other covering her as as the holodeck doors opened. "This is where you trust me." He walked her into the room, hoping he still had some sense in what a woman desired for a surprise romantic dinner. Wooing someone wasn't in his repertoire as of late, so he was rather unused to the whole thing. There were flowers, candles and a table set for two. He of course had tried his best to set this up so no one would interfere and as the doors closed behind them, he took his hand away from her eyes to let her soak in the room. "Computer, begin simulation." He stated simply. A waiter opened a door to their left and walked to greet them. "How's this for an escape?"

She looked around. Couldn't believe that she was going to share a meal with Kalen, alone. "Wow. Must have taken you a while to set this up. What era did you use?" She was actually happy about this. Probably because she knew that their would be food soon, not to mention a chance to get to know Kalen a little better. She had a lot on her mind, and would need to decide very soon if she was going to stay.She shook her head to clear her mind. She didn't want to worry about that, besides she believed this to be a date so she was going to enjoy it... at least attempt to.

He pulled out her chair and pushed her into her place at the table. He smiled softly and sat down across from her. "It took a fair amount of planning, but the actual execution wasn't too terribly taxing." He waved his hand around at the room, "Twentieth century American restaurant. I picked the 1980s because it seemed to be the most appropriate for what I wanted." The waiter stood by their table, "Would you like anything to drink, Lieutenant?" He grinned at her, hoping that his attempt to get some time with her alone was going well. "Glad to be back?"

She smiled. "It's good to be back, even if it is just for a little while." She hadn't decided rather or not she was staying. "Water is fine. Are you glad?"

He asked the waiter to bring them two waters and nodded, "I hope you decide to stick around, though don't take this as a move to influence your decision. I just..wanted to be with you." After what had gone down on the planet, he was glad that the majority of them remained unharmed. He smiled, "I'm glad to see you, to be here with you. That's all that really matters right now." He took a sip of his water upon the waiter's return, and relaxed in his chair, comforted by her presence and the atmosphere of the room. It just seemed right.

She laughed. "It's amazing how easy it is for you to be comfortable. I'll try not to let you wanting me to stay influence my decision, but no promises." She couldn't help smiling. She liked that he was able to relax around her. It made her comfortable enough to relax as well. So she relaxed while she debated what question to ask first. Taking a slip of water, she decided the basic questions should probably be asked first. "So... what's your family like?"

He chuckled warmly, "I just want you to know that I'm not trying to guide your hand or force you one way or the other is all. But we already talked about that." He grinned back at her until she asked her first question. A somber expression took over his face and he sighed softly. He shook his head and waved his hand around the room, "This ship is my home, it's crew is my family. That's all I have. My parents were killed by Borg. I don't have any siblings, and as far as I was ever aware, I never had an extended family. They never really talked about it. My father was a cold, calculated man. I think emotion must have pained him." He shook his head, and smiled at her, "But lets move on to happier things. This is after all, a very happy moment for me."

"Sorry, I forgot. This is weird for me." She shyly smiled. "I haven't been on a date in almost two years. So I'm a bit uncomfortable, but trying. Family isn't a happy subject, so I guess that means I get to ask stupid questions." Now she had to think of some stupid questions to ask. Mainly because she didn't want to talk about her family. She was fidgeting with her napkin that was still on the table. "Okay, what's your favorite color?"

"Don't worry about it. It was just a somber subject and I don't want to ruin a good thing by talking about sad things." He thought for a moment about the last time he went on a date. Like a date date. "My last one was probably about the same amount of time or close to it. So it's been a while for us both." He avoided talking to her about her family so he smiled at her question. He grabbed the neckline of his uniform, "I dunno. I really like the red. But before getting used to it, my favorite color was a rich, deep purple." He thought about what he wanted to ask her, "Where would you go, if you left?"

She coughed. She had to look at him to confirm that she had heard him correctly. "Where would I go?" She repeated. "Either back to my old station or home. Though, I would prefer to go back to my old station. Home isn't a good place to be. So I'd pretty much take anywhere over going home." She hoped that she didn't have to explain, but knew she probably would need to sooner or later. "Favorite food?"

He pondered what she meant by that, but assumed it had something to do with her family and therefor an equally nonessential subject about which to breach. He assumed she would talk to him about it when she felt comfortable enough with him. So he would wait. He pondered for a moment, "I love a good Iowa bred steak. Though there is so much in the galaxy to try and to sample. I have had quite a bit of good food that I didn't even expect to be good. Yourself?"

"Pasta. Anything that has to do with pasta. My mom's homemade pasta salad is the best. I do agree that their is a lot to sample. I just don't know if there's enough time to try it all." She responded without having to actually think about. She found it a bit weird that she had mention her mom. She didn't want to. It just came out. "Did you always want to be a pilot?"

He chuckled softly, "Oh yes, pasta can be quite amazing at times." He shook his head, "I never intended to even be a pilot. They gave us basic lessons on how to fly shuttles and the like at the Academy, but I was an engineer. But when I was given my choice of assignments, with what little power of choice I was offered by Starfleet, something about this ship called to me. So I went through the training to be the pilot for this ship and met up with her as soon as I could. Maybe it was what I was meant for." He smiled at her and nodded to the waiter who had of course just replicated what they desired for dinner. He didn't ask her anything else, he just considered what they were, and what they could be together. If she had more to ask, she very well could do that.

"If only that's how I got my duties." she smiled. "At least you're doing what you want. That's the important part. Is there anything you wan to discuss?" She was the one asking questions, and learning a lot about him. She thought it only right that he at least gets to ask her questions. Though, somethings weren't open to discussion... not yet anyways. She felt like she could tell him things, but she just wasn't ready. Or she was simply being a coward. Either way, it was his turn to pick the topic.

He grabbed his silverware and dug into his steak with vigor. He was hungry, wondering what she meant by her first statement. He nodded, but kept his mouth closed to finish his bite. He smiled softly and wondered what he wanted to ask her. What did he want to know about her? Well there were a few things, but he wouldn't let his thoughts stray there. Taking it slow was the better option than letting his mind wander to what could be. He had to keep his mind in less..soft..warm..he shook his head. He cleared his mind and focused on something inane. Baseball..baseball. Yes. That was better. He chuckled softly and gazed at her over their dinner table, "Well, let me think for a moment. Well for one, after tonight..when can I see you again?" He thought over his shifts for the next while, hoping they could find a time that would work for them.

She didn't want to get his hopes up incase she chose not to stay. But she did want to know how he would react. "Well, I'm off for the next 24 hours so we could see each other later tonight. After all, our quarters are sort of in the same location." She watched as he nearly chocked on his food. She grinned, and tried not to laugh. "My cousin comes in some time tonight or tomorrow. And the Captain would most likely want to know rather or not I'm staying. Making it so that you probably have the next 24 hours to be with me. I'll be able to tell you more when I make my decision." She had to focus on something other than staring into his eyes. So she simply started eating her pasta, and focusing on the plate.

He pondered for a couple moments, he didn't really know the right move here. He thought about chess, and how one move could be a game changing event. He wanted to change the game, but he wasn't sure how to change it or where to go with it. He smiled at her and decided to say something to see what she had in mind. "Well this doesn't have to end you know. I know I interrupted your sleep, but there's plenty of time for that." He took another few bites and tried to gauge her reaction. He didn't know what gear to be in when the two of them were together. Part of him wanted to stay in first gear and go slow...but other parts of him wanted to shift to go a little faster. He wished like the Betazoids from the planet's surface, he could glean what she was thinking. But that would be unfair, so he would have to do things the old fashioned way.

PostSubject: Re: Kalen/Alyssa Unexpected Surprise   Mon Feb 13, 2012 12:39 am

||USS Fenris
||Alyssa's Quarters
||1330

Ever since he had returned from the planet, Kalen's thoughts had been of the ship. The crew. Alyssa. Alyssa was the thought that dominated the forefront of his mind. The way she smiled. Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Alyssa heard the chime and groaned. She didn't want to move from her bed. Better yet, she was unavailable and that meant no counseling. She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew. "Shh..no more questions." He grinned at her and swept her off her feet, letting her door close behind them as he walked away with her, into the hallways and towards his intended goal. "Now I know you're tired and I am probably keeping you from your well earned rest, but I have something to show you." He took them towards the holodeck where his further surprise awaited them. As he got to the doors, he set her down. He looked into her eyes, "Do you trust me?"

She looked at him. She couldn't believe that he just carried her to the holodeck, and she freely allowed him to. What the crap was going on? She didn't normally allow any guy to do this, and yet she was letting him do it. "Um... I don't know. Could we... um..." She wasn't communicating well, and frankly was still in shock. She held her hands up, not wanting him to speak or change his mind. She shook her head, and began to think. It's a simple question. The answer is either yes or no.

"True." She replied. She was debating rather or not she wanted sleep. She knew she needed it, but she didn't want to leave. Which was very unusual. She also knew what staying would do, and she didn't want to go through that again. Everyone had baggage, but she didn't believe anyone was actually capable of understanding all of hers. She shook her head to clear it of such thoughts. It was too early in 'their' relationship to think about that. She looked at him, and shrugged. "I don't know what we'd do. Do you have any other plans? Because a bed sounds really good."

She liked that he was able to relax around her. It made her comfortable enough to relax as well. So she relaxed while she debated what question to ask first. Taking a slip of water, she decided the basic questions should probably be asked first. "So... what's your family like?"

He chuckled warmly, "I just want you to know that I'm not trying to guide your hand or force you one way or the other is all. But we already talked about that." He grinned back at her until she asked her first question. A somber expression took over his face and he sighed softly. He shook his head and waved his hand around the room, "This ship is my home, it's crew is my family. That's all I have. My parents were killed by Borg. I don't have any siblings, and as far as I was ever aware, I never had an extended family. They never really talked about it. My father was a cold, calculated man. I think emotion must have pained him." He shook his head, and smiled at her, "But lets move on to happier things. This is after all, a very happy moment for me."

"Sorry, I forgot. This is weird for me." She shyly smiled. "I haven't been on a date in almost two years. So I'm a bit uncomfortable, but trying. Family isn't a happy subject, so I guess that means I get to ask stupid questions." Now she had to think of some stupid questions to ask. Mainly because she didn't want to talk about her family. She was fidgeting with her napkin that was still on the table. "Okay, what's your favorite color?"

"Don't worry about it. It was just a somber subject and I don't want to ruin a good thing by talking about sad things." He thought for a moment about the last time he went on a date. Like a date date. "My last one was probably about the same amount of time or close to it. So it's been a while for us both." He avoided talking to her about her family so he smiled at her question. He grabbed the neckline of his uniform, "I dunno. I really like the red. But before getting used to it, my favorite color was a rich, deep purple." He thought about what he wanted to ask her, "Where would you go, if you left?"

She coughed. She had to look at him to confirm that she had heard him correctly. "Where would I go?" She repeated. "Either back to my old station or home. Though, I would prefer to go back to my old station. Home isn't a good place to be. So I'd pretty much take anywhere over going home." She hoped that she didn't have to explain, but knew she probably would need to sooner or later. "Favorite food?"

He pondered what she meant by that, but assumed it had something to do with her family and therefor an equally nonessential subject about which to breach. He assumed she would talk to him about it when she felt comfortable enough with him. So he would wait. He pondered for a moment, "I love a good Iowa bred steak. Though there is so much in the galaxy to try and to sample. I have had quite a bit of good food that I didn't even expect to be good. Yourself?"

"Pasta. Anything that has to do with pasta. My mom's homemade pasta salad is the best. I do agree that their is a lot to sample. I just don't know if there's enough time to try it all." She responded without having to actually think about. She found it a bit weird that she had mention her mom. She didn't want to. It just came out. "Did you always want to be a pilot?"

He chuckled softly, "Oh yes, pasta can be quite amazing at times." He shook his head, "I never intended to even be a pilot. They gave us basic lessons on how to fly shuttles and the like at the Academy, but I was an engineer. But when I was given my choice of assignments, with what little power of choice I was offered by Starfleet, something about this ship called to me. So I went through the training to be the pilot for this ship and met up with her as soon as I could. Maybe it was what I was meant for." He smiled at her and nodded to the waiter who had of course just replicated what they desired for dinner. He didn't ask her anything else, he just considered what they were, and what they could be together. If she had more to ask, she very well could do that.

"If only that's how I got my duties." she smiled. "At least you're doing what you want. That's the important part. Is there anything you wan to discuss?" She was the one asking questions, and learning a lot about him. She thought it only right that he at least gets to ask her questions. Though, somethings weren't open to discussion... not yet anyways. She felt like she could tell him things, but she just wasn't ready. Or she was simply being a coward. Either way, it was his turn to pick the topic.

He grabbed his silverware and dug into his steak with vigor. He was hungry, wondering what she meant by her first statement. He nodded, but kept his mouth closed to finish his bite. He smiled softly and wondered what he wanted to ask her. What did he want to know about her? Well there were a few things, but he wouldn't let his thoughts stray there. Taking it slow was the better option than letting his mind wander to what could be. He had to keep his mind in less..soft..warm..he shook his head. He cleared his mind and focused on something inane. Baseball..baseball. Yes. That was better. He chuckled softly and gazed at her over their dinner table, "Well, let me think for a moment. Well for one, after tonight..when can I see you again?" He thought over his shifts for the next while, hoping they could find a time that would work for them.

She didn't want to get his hopes up incase she chose not to stay. But she did want to know how he would react. "Well, I'm off for the next 24 hours so we could see each other later tonight. After all, our quarters are sort of in the same location." She watched as he nearly chocked on his food. She grinned, and tried not to laugh. "My cousin comes in some time tonight or tomorrow. And the Captain would most likely want to know rather or not I'm staying. Making it so that you probably have the next 24 hours to be with me. I'll be able to tell you more when I make my decision." She had to focus on something other than staring into his eyes. So she simply started eating her pasta, and focusing on the plate.

He pondered for a couple moments, he didn't really know the right move here. He thought about chess, and how one move could be a game changing event. He wanted to change the game, but he wasn't sure how to change it or where to go with it. He smiled at her and decided to say something to see what she had in mind. "Well this doesn't have to end you know. I know I interrupted your sleep, but there's plenty of time for that." He took another few bites and tried to gauge her reaction. He didn't know what gear to be in when the two of them were together. Part of him wanted to stay in first gear and go slow...but other parts of him wanted to shift to go a little faster. He wished like the Betazoids from the planet's surface, he could glean what she was thinking. But that would be unfair, so he would have to do things the old fashioned way.

"True." She replied. She was debating rather or not she wanted sleep. She knew she needed it, but she didn't want to leave. Which was very unusual. She also knew what staying would do, and she didn't want to go through that again. Everyone had baggage, but she didn't believe anyone was actually capable of understanding all of hers. She shook her head to clear it of such thoughts. It was too early in 'their' relationship to think about that. She looked at him, and shrugged. "I don't know what we'd do. Do you have any other plans? Because a bed sounds really good."

He shrugged his shoulders and finished his meal. He cleaned up and left the table to be disassembled by the holodeck. He took her hand and walked out towards the door with her. He smiled warmly at her, "I don't know either, but whatever it would be would be perfect because it would be us together. But as to your question, no I have no other plans. And if you need to sleep a little more, I will walk you to your quarters and you can sleep. But you should come find me after you're done so we can resume from where we left off. I leave it in your more than capable hands." He brought her hand to his mouth and kissed the back of it.

PostSubject: Re: Kalen/Alyssa Unexpected Surprise   Mon Feb 13, 2012 2:15 am

||USS Fenris
||Alyssa's Quarters
||1330

Ever since he had returned from the planet, Kalen's thoughts had been of the ship. The crew. Alyssa. Alyssa was the thought that dominated the forefront of his mind. The way she smiled. Everything about her, everything in his mind's eye seemed more and more perfect the longer he spent away from her. And yet he knew that she could live up to all his emboldened visions of her. He just..couldn't seem to get to the chime for her door. He had been pacing the hall in front of her quarters for more than half an hour. The exact amount of time had been lost to him long ago. He just paced. He didn't know what to say to her, what do you say to a woman you built up all your hopes for? Hello? It's nice to see you again? I missed you? He sighed and grimaced. He was so bad at these interpersonal relationships. He was more than able to talk and flirt with her in person, he just couldn't bring himself to ring the chime. He halfway thought about keying in and disabling the door security and opening it himself. He probably could do it if he really wanted to. But he couldn't just barge in. He had to. He had to press the button. He stomped his foot, made up his mind and reached for the door to ring the chime. After he did ring it, he wondered what she thought of him. Where this was going. Why on earth did he ring that chime? No no, he wanted to ring it. He was just afraid of what may come when it opened. He had an idea though, and he would implement it on seeing her, if he could. Spontaneity was what he knew best, and this was certain to be one of his crazy ideas.

Alyssa heard the chime and groaned. She didn't want to move from her bed. Better yet, she was unavailable and that meant no counseling. She slowly got out of bed, knowing fully well that she had to answer the door. She hated moving and wanted to turn around not bothering to answer in hope that whoever was outside her quarters would go away. Yet, she didn't. She didn't even bother to straighten out her uniform because she had every intention to go back to be once this whoever was outside left.

She opened the door. "This better be good or you just given yourself a death sentence." She warned, then realized who was at her door. "Lieutenant Gespard. What are you doing here?"

She now wished that she had at least made it so that she didn't look like she crawled out of bed. She hadn't expected it to be Kalen. In fact, she expected it to be the Captain or one of the crew members that she saw on a daily basis. This was definitely unexpected surprise.

He smiled softly and pressed his finger against her lips. The fact that she probably thought she wasn't in a fit state to be out, he didn't intend on having her seen by too many of the crew. "Shh..no more questions." He grinned at her and swept her off her feet, letting her door close behind them as he walked away with her, into the hallways and towards his intended goal. "Now I know you're tired and I am probably keeping you from your well earned rest, but I have something to show you." He took them towards the holodeck where his further surprise awaited them. As he got to the doors, he set her down. He looked into her eyes, "Do you trust me?"

She looked at him. She couldn't believe that he just carried her to the holodeck, and she freely allowed him to. What the crap was going on? She didn't normally allow any guy to do this, and yet she was letting him do it. "Um... I don't know. Could we... um..." She wasn't communicating well, and frankly was still in shock. She held her hands up, not wanting him to speak or change his mind. She shook her head, and began to think. It's a simple question. The answer is either yes or no. Since I freely allowed him to carry me here, it means that I trust him to some degree. Doesn't help that I'm curious as to why we are here. She pulled her hands downs. "I trust you. Which you should know is very hard for me to do."

He smiled at her, "I can understand that. Don't worry, I won't get you into anything you can't get out of if you just say the word." He touched the panel and as the doors started to open he moved to her, one hand taking hers in it, the other covering her as as the holodeck doors opened. "This is where you trust me." He walked her into the room, hoping he still had some sense in what a woman desired for a surprise romantic dinner. Wooing someone wasn't in his repertoire as of late, so he was rather unused to the whole thing. There were flowers, candles and a table set for two. He of course had tried his best to set this up so no one would interfere and as the doors closed behind them, he took his hand away from her eyes to let her soak in the room. "Computer, begin simulation." He stated simply. A waiter opened a door to their left and walked to greet them. "How's this for an escape?"

She looked around. Couldn't believe that she was going to share a meal with Kalen, alone. "Wow. Must have taken you a while to set this up. What era did you use?" She was actually happy about this. Probably because she knew that their would be food soon, not to mention a chance to get to know Kalen a little better. She had a lot on her mind, and would need to decide very soon if she was going to stay.She shook her head to clear her mind. She didn't want to worry about that, besides she believed this to be a date so she was going to enjoy it... at least attempt to.

He pulled out her chair and pushed her into her place at the table. He smiled softly and sat down across from her. "It took a fair amount of planning, but the actual execution wasn't too terribly taxing." He waved his hand around at the room, "Twentieth century American restaurant. I picked the 1980s because it seemed to be the most appropriate for what I wanted." The waiter stood by their table, "Would you like anything to drink, Lieutenant?" He grinned at her, hoping that his attempt to get some time with her alone was going well. "Glad to be back?"

She smiled. "It's good to be back, even if it is just for a little while." She hadn't decided rather or not she was staying. "Water is fine. Are you glad?"

He asked the waiter to bring them two waters and nodded, "I hope you decide to stick around, though don't take this as a move to influence your decision. I just..wanted to be with you." After what had gone down on the planet, he was glad that the majority of them remained unharmed. He smiled, "I'm glad to see you, to be here with you. That's all that really matters right now." He took a sip of his water upon the waiter's return, and relaxed in his chair, comforted by her presence and the atmosphere of the room. It just seemed right.

She laughed. "It's amazing how easy it is for you to be comfortable. I'll try not to let you wanting me to stay influence my decision, but no promises." She couldn't help smiling.

Family isn't a happy subject, so I guess that means I get to ask stupid questions." Now she had to think of some stupid questions to ask. Mainly because she didn't want to talk about her family. She was fidgeting with her napkin that was still on the table. "Okay, what's your favorite color?"

"Don't worry about it. It was just a somber subject and I don't want to ruin a good thing by talking about sad things." He thought for a moment about the last time he went on a date. Like a date date. "My last one was probably about the same amount of time or close to it. So it's been a while for us both." He avoided talking to her about her family so he smiled at her question. He grabbed the neckline of his uniform, "I dunno. I really like the red. But before getting used to it, my favorite color was a rich, deep purple." He thought about what he wanted to ask her, "Where would you go, if you left?"

She coughed. She had to look at him to confirm that she had heard him correctly. "Where would I go?" She repeated. "Either back to my old station or home. Though, I would prefer to go back to my old station. Home isn't a good place to be. So I'd pretty much take anywhere over going home." She hoped that she didn't have to explain, but knew she probably would need to sooner or later. "Favorite food?"

He pondered what she meant by that, but assumed it had something to do with her family and therefor an equally nonessential subject about which to breach. He assumed she would talk to him about it when she felt comfortable enough with him. So he would wait. He pondered for a moment, "I love a good Iowa bred steak. Though there is so much in the galaxy to try and to sample. I have had quite a bit of good food that I didn't even expect to be good. Yourself?"

"Pasta. Anything that has to do with pasta. My mom's homemade pasta salad is the best. I do agree that their is a lot to sample. I just don't know if there's enough time to try it all." She responded without having to actually think about. She found it a bit weird that she had mention her mom. She didn't want to. It just came out. "Did you always want to be a pilot?"

He chuckled softly, "Oh yes, pasta can be quite amazing at times." He shook his head, "I never intended to even be a pilot. They gave us basic lessons on how to fly shuttles and the like at the Academy, but I was an engineer. But when I was given my choice of assignments, with what little power of choice I was offered by Starfleet, something about this ship called to me. So I went through the training to be the pilot for this ship and met up with her as soon as I could. Maybe it was what I was meant for." He smiled at her and nodded to the waiter who had of course just replicated what they desired for dinner. He didn't ask her anything else, he just considered what they were, and what they could be together. If she had more to ask, she very well could do that.

"If only that's how I got my duties." she smiled. "At least you're doing what you want. That's the important part. Is there anything you wan to discuss?" She was the one asking questions, and learning a lot about him. She thought it only right that he at least gets to ask her questions. Though, somethings weren't open to discussion... not yet anyways. She felt like she could tell him things, but she just wasn't ready. Or she was simply being a coward. Either way, it was his turn to pick the topic.

He grabbed his silverware and dug into his steak with vigor. He was hungry, wondering what she meant by her first statement. He nodded, but kept his mouth closed to finish his bite. He smiled softly and wondered what he wanted to ask her. What did he want to know about her? Well there were a few things, but he wouldn't let his thoughts stray there. Taking it slow was the better option than letting his mind wander to what could be. He had to keep his mind in less..soft..warm..he shook his head. He cleared his mind and focused on something inane. Baseball..baseball. Yes. That was better. He chuckled softly and gazed at her over their dinner table, "Well, let me think for a moment. Well for one, after tonight..when can I see you again?" He thought over his shifts for the next while, hoping they could find a time that would work for them.

She didn't want to get his hopes up incase she chose not to stay. But she did want to know how he would react. "Well, I'm off for the next 24 hours so we could see each other later tonight. After all, our quarters are sort of in the same location." She watched as he nearly chocked on his food. She grinned, and tried not to laugh. "My cousin comes in some time tonight or tomorrow. And the Captain would most likely want to know rather or not I'm staying. Making it so that you probably have the next 24 hours to be with me. I'll be able to tell you more when I make my decision." She had to focus on something other than staring into his eyes. So she simply started eating her pasta, and focusing on the plate.

He pondered for a couple moments, he didn't really know the right move here. He thought about chess, and how one move could be a game changing event. He wanted to change the game, but he wasn't sure how to change it or where to go with it. He smiled at her and decided to say something to see what she had in mind. "Well this doesn't have to end you know. I know I interrupted your sleep, but there's plenty of time for that." He took another few bites and tried to gauge her reaction. He didn't know what gear to be in when the two of them were together. Part of him wanted to stay in first gear and go slow...but other parts of him wanted to shift to go a little faster. He wished like the Betazoids from the planet's surface, he could glean what she was thinking. But that would be unfair, so he would have to do things the old fashioned way.

"True." She replied. She was debating rather or not she wanted sleep. She knew she needed it, but she didn't want to leave. Which was very unusual. She also knew what staying would do, and she didn't want to go through that again. Everyone had baggage, but she didn't believe anyone was actually capable of understanding all of hers. She shook her head to clear it of such thoughts. It was too early in 'their' relationship to think about that. She looked at him, and shrugged. "I don't know what we'd do. Do you have any other plans? Because a bed sounds really good."

He shrugged his shoulders and finished his meal. He cleaned up and left the table to be disassembled by the holodeck. He took her hand and walked out towards the door with her. He smiled warmly at her, "I don't know either, but whatever it would be would be perfect because it would be us together. But as to your question, no I have no other plans. And if you need to sleep a little more, I will walk you to your quarters and you can sleep. But you should come find me after you're done so we can resume from where we left off. I leave it in your more than capable hands." He brought her hand to his mouth and kissed the back of it.

She blushed. "Okay. I'll most likely come and find you after I deal with my cousin. Family stuff is always fun." She tried to laugh, but knew her family stuff wasn't fun.

He nodded, "Alright then. I will see you as soon as you do. I will most likely be in my quarters, and as you pointed out, they are rather close to yours." He chuckled softly and shook his head, wondering what it would be like for his family to still be a pain in his ass like hers. He escorted her to her room and kissed her softly before he let her go back to sleep. He walked down the hallway and into his quarters and sat down, wondering if he too should catch a quick nap.
