Timeline: Mission 4 Day 45
“Are you asking me to Lunch Paul?” asked Shakram.
“Yes I am Shakram, I want to make up for my actions towards you,” replied Paul looking back at her,” That’s if you will let me,” as he hoped that she would.
She looked back at him for a moment looking to see if he was being honest and wanting to regain some honour after what he had done, She replied,” Yes I will, but If I do decide to date you Paul, you will have to speak to my father and ask his permission to court me,”
Paul looked back at her for a minute with his jaw wide open he replied,” Shakram, this is just lunch not a prelude to getting hitched,” as he looked back at her and knew that she was going to make this hard for him after all, he did deserve it.
She looked back at him and said,” Those are my terms Paul, if you don’t like it then go alone,” as she started to move towards the other Klingons, Paul knew that he had to do something before she started making plans. She called back” and don’t waste my time PetaQ”
Paul watched her walk away from him, He knew that he had just insulted her once more and she had responded in kind, He called back,” I’ll see you later Lieutenant,” as he turned on his heels and exited the bay and headed back to his quarters. As he left the flight deck Paul was fuming that one of his Squadron leaders had called him a PetaQ this he knew was not on and would have to discipline her, but first he had to cool down.
[30 minutes later]
As Paul entered his quarters still angry at how Shakram had called him a PetaQ in front of the other pilots and chastised him as well, as he approached the replication unit, Paul stopped and relised what Lieutenant Aya must have felt when he had done the same thing to her and now he felt ashamed again.
As he walked towards the replication unit again Paul knew that he had to stamp his authority on the air group as a whole, As he came to a halt next to the unit his door chime buzzed and wondered who it might be as he tapped in the commands for a sausage sandwich and a white coffee and called “Come” He wondered if Shakram would have changed her mind.
