It Comes With The Job

Mission: Ties To Blood: Season 1, Episode 3.

Beverly had been on her feet for a few days and a hunger had taken a hold of her. Something that couldn't be sated by any of the delicacies in the replicator. Instead this fell to carnal pleasure. She had wondered if it was something to do with the virus, but each and every time she had seen Lieutenant Jenkins she had felt warm inside and flushed.
Now she sat in the replimat absently chewing through some Tillani Sticks, a sweet treat, and thinking about their encounter.

Her intention for eating in the replimat had been one that was supposed to give her mind something to do other than remember, but it hadn't helped, that is until Lieutenant Commander Aerelon walked up behind her.

"Cap'n...excuse me, Commodore DeVuor." Zeek said, correcting his mistake "Mind if I join you?"

"Commander, please take a seat", her mind now totally focused. "I have something I want to talk to you about".

He sat down in the chair closest to her "Congrats on your promotion." He said with a smile as he set his cup of coffee down on the table. The past few days came with very little sleep for Zeek, so his voice had a little less brightness to it than it usually did.

"I just wanted to say that I have been immensely impressed with your performance over the past few days", she smiled at the young man. "You stepped in to Command this station after I was... Taken ill and Commander Lorran was elsewhere. I have nothing but admiration for you and what you did".

With that said, she fumbled around in her pocket for the small receptacle that she had been carrying around. "That being said", she pushed the small box towards him, "Congratulations Commander".

In an uncharacteristic move, Zeek was speechless for a few moments. He opened the box to reveal a single gold pip, which he put in the place of the black one that was on his collar. "Thank you sir." He replied "I won't let you down."

"You'd best not because I'm also increasing your duties". Again she smiled, this time as she lifted the last of the treats into her mouth and finished of the food. "I'm placing you in as Station Master. In other words your the third officer for lack of a better term. Since myself, Commander Lorran and Lieutenant Commander Mason are going to be occupied with other duties, you will essential be running the station. You will write up the Command duty shifts, I also want you to supervise Doctor Ulonova's bridge officers exam. We live and work on a Science Station. We need her to be in a more senior position."

Zeek nodded "Understood. Anything else I should be aware of?" He replied with smile

"Nothing else", she laughed a little. "Congratulations Commander. You more than deserve this".
Beverly dabbed at her mouth with the napkin that had been sat on her lap. "Now if you will excuse me there is something I need to take care off".

She shook the Commanders hand once more and then nodded and exited the area. Her hunger had grown more than she could contain and she needed to scratch that itch.

Zeek was left in the empty room feeling the new weight on his collar. Father...I finally made you proud
