On My Own....

- Temporary Quarters on Starbase 51 -
Dodd was heartbroken and after a few hours alone and naked in the temporary quarters on Starbase 51, he decided to return to the Tomcat. He would take this time to start a new chapter in his life and career.
So Dodd departed Starbase 51 left the temporary quarters to be Walona's so she had a place until her transport could make it to Starbase 51 to transfer her to Earth before she and Ryley could find a new place to officially call home.
- XO's quarters on SB51-
Since Rocky was no on Starbase 51, it was going to be easier to move his belongings to the new quarters that came with being the executive officer. So as he had his stuff transferred to his new quarters on the ship, he was also having his belongings returned to hte ship from SB 51.
He also had a new office to get arranged and he was looking forward to his new role as it would hopefully give him a new outlook on life.
He was totally shocked by what Walon had just done to him. He always had a vibe with Iria and yet she was leaving him and Starfleet. He had the last of his personal affects from his previous quarters just delivered to his new XO quarters.
He stood looking down at a box of his junk as well a some of Iria's.
On my own, Pretending she's beside me. All alone, I walk with her till morning. Without her, I feel her arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes, And she has found me. In the rain the pavement shines like silver, All the lights are misty in the river. In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight And all I see is her and me forever and forever
And I know it's only in my mind, That I'm talking to myself and not to her, And although I know that she is blind, Still I say, there's a way for us. I love her, but when the night is over, she is gone, The river's just a river. Without her The world around me changes, The trees are bare and everywhere the streets are full of strangers. I love her, But every day I'm learning all my life I've only been pretending. Without me, her world will go on turning, A world that's full of happiness that I will never known
I love her. I love her, I love her, But only on my own.
Dodd then realized he was on his own once again. He would use this time to be the best XO that Captain Somers and LT Col Somers would have ever servered with. He would channel the blues of being dumped and use that to help him keep him focused on the duties he now has with not only the captain or colonel, but also with the rest of the ship's crew and staff.
Dodd had a larger unit as his quarters now that was actually a little bigger than the double sized unit his had with Iria. There was room for him to have a pet.
