Kara Pril's personal log before her joining with a symbiote.
Today is the day I get to become a joined Trill. I am to get my symbiote and while I want to respect the sacred ceremony of the joining, I have been approved to have my boyfriend, Tim Nelson, present with me. He has been super supportive of my journey and I hope to have him at may side for the rest of my life.
I will be taken to a special guest quarters that have been remodeled to act as a ceremonial cave that was recreated to mimic the cave on Trill. There is a symbiote pool and a joining pool that are conjoined by a small underwater cave that the symbiote will swim through when the time comes.
Tim "Clay" being present with me during the process is a special circumstance. Since I have no living family, the Ministry thus granted me permission to have Clay at my side. He is very excited as he will be allowed to sit in the pool with me as the joining takes place. There will only be a few people in the ceremony besides myself, the symbiote and Clay, there will be four assistants and the Minister. Two assistants will remain outside the pools and two will be in the water in special suits to not affect the process of the joining. Clay will be in the pool with me as we are both completely naked. Clay will be fine as the symbiote will not sense the pouch opening and thus gravitate to me. Clay is all excites as he enjoys being an exhibitionist and thus this is very exhilarating for him to be seen by others naked. I did not have the heart to tell him that this ceremony will be all male except for me and the symbiote. Since symbiotes are gender neutral that makes me the only female in the ceremony.
Well in a few moments, I will be adorned in the traditional robes worn to the pools and then Clay and I will be escorted by the assistants to the special quarters. I am so nervous and scared but Clay will be with me and he is my rock.
