“Well, Trip?”: #Loveuary Day Fourteen

Ritu from But I Smile Anyway created the #Loveuary blog hop,  which feels like a perfect time to explore the next three chapters of my Star Trek: Enterprise  TnT fan fiction  story, Love and Loss  – a hundred words at a time.

I’m using word prompts for each day, randomly gathered. Prompt words appear in bold, and today’s contributors are credited at the end of the post.

One more thing: Standard disclaimer applies. I don’t own these characters or the world they inhabit. They just like whispering and shouting stories into my brain, which I share with you freely, as an act of love.

This drabble happens just after the last Trip story,"About T'Pol." Jon invited Trip to dinner, and is fishing for answers. Will Trip take the bait?
 

“Well, Trip?”

Dinner was baked potato, curried fish and carrots with honey ginger glaze. He couldn’t eat.

“Well, Trip?

Honor guide me. Shran would hate him using Andorian phrases to defend T’Pol’s hallowed ground.

“T’Pol’s mom rolled out the doormat and welcomed me. It made me miss Lizzie. Didn’t handle it well. I had to leave.”

It was true, despite the holes a forklift could drive through. It needed a flourish; a forked tongue to hide the forklift. “Now, as for the emu – there’s not enough room to ride a horse on a spaceship.

Jon groaned. “Shut up, Trip. Have some pie.

Will Trip get away with his honor, T'Pol's secret, and some pie?
