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 happens a few days after my previous "HoshiTraveldrabble". Travis still wants to know what's in Hoshi's rainbow box, and she's now willing to make a deal.
This drabble gets just a little naughty; it's potentially NSFW, or for young ones peeking over the shoulder. If you're not up for that kind of thing, maybe give this a skip. I understand.
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.
“Obsidian? Sandstone? Iron Pyrite?”
“Obtuse angles and inverse relationships.”
“That’s not even a complete sentence, Miss Comm Officer!”

“You want out of this, you know what you need to do. Acrylic paints? Nail art supplies?”
“I’m not sure whether I’m more bored now, or back in Trigonometry. I failed that – twice.”
“Then tell me what’s in the box.”
“You have to guess. I’ll say if you’re getting close. Deal?”
“I’m chewing it over.”
“You mean masticating.”
“Yeah? Okay...nipple clamps, blindfolds, and handcuffs.”
What kind of naughtiness is Hoshi hiding in her rainbow box?
