“You Saved Me”: #Loveuary Day Six

loveuary-logo.png

Ritu from But I Smile Anyway created the #Loveuary blog hop, pwhich 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. If you’d like to add to the pool, list your choices in the comments – bonus points if they don’t sound especially like they’d fit a science fiction story. I love a challenge!

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.

You Saved Me”

“The pinkskins’ planet is beautiful, Vulcan. Here’s the valley; you’ll be with your doctor soon – now what’s this?”

“Don’t leave me!” T’Pol launched herself back into Shran’s arms without thought, and now clung tightly. He was the wrong man, with the wrong scent, and his heart made the wrong music.

But he was here.

And Trip was not.

“I’d think you’d find my touch degrading, with healing so near, Vulcan.” Soft voice; strong hands stroking her back.

“No. You saved me.” She tried to work through the maze of emotion and illogic. “Will you stay, for a time?”

T’Pol waited, trembling.

Will Shran stay with T’Pol?

Today’s prompt words come from:

Braxin:

  • degrading
  • illogical
  • maze

My 15 year old son:

  • valley

Come on back tomorrow, and don’t forget to stop by and see Ritu, as well!
