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.
This drabble takes place shortly after “I’ll Bring Tissues.” Travis has made a picnic, and has plans for the night.
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.
“Most Logical, Sir”
“Food for the hunger; stars in your pretty eyes for romance.” Travis lifted his glass, grinning over the wreckage of carmelized custard, cheesecake with tart mixed berry compote, fish tacos, gooey cream-filled eclairs, and even her favorite, sweet crunchy gherkins. “It’s time for Captain and T’Pol Role Play Night.”
Hoshi sipped overproof rum. He’d certainly worked hard to tantalize. The side effect was that she was drunk and gorged almost to death. Keeping her word and wearing the fuschia catsuit would be messy folly.
“I swallowed an entire wavepool,” she moaned. “I’m barely alive. Clemency would be most logical, sir.”
Will Captain Travis grant Sub-Commander Hoshi clemency?
