Time to Fly

Mission: Wolf In The Fold. Season 2, Episode 1
Location: San Francisco

Sileth stood and gazed at the shuttles that came and went. Sileth knew that hers would be the next one. She looked at Kriss standing next to her, they had had a great evening the night before and had reluctantly said goodnight to each other. Kriss and Rob to their hotel and Kath and Sileth to theirs.

"I'll contact you as soon as I can" said Maxx "Either from the Anubis or Roark Nor"

Sileth smiled and nodded unable to speak for a moment. She looked down at her luggage, she had bought to much stuff but that really wasn't the most important thing to think about at this time. It was too lovely a day to leave and she would gladly change them all just to spend one more day here together with Kriss.

Robert and Kath stood off to one side, both with a simple duffel bag slung over a shoulder. And both were eying Kriss with concern.

"What has gotten into him Rob?" Kath quietly asked as she looked back at her friend.

"A symbiote maybe..." Rob replied with a smile and then ducked back as Kath aimed a clumsy swipe at his head.

"Very funny," but Kath could not help the smile that came to her lips. "I'm glad you are assigned to DS7 with him. It looks like he might need someone to keep an eye on him."

"Yeah, I know what you mean Kath." Rob looked again at this new Kriss Maxx and really thought for the first time that even though it looked like Kriss and sounded like Kriss, He did not act like Kriss. At least not the Kriss he knew from the Academy.

"Don't worry Kath. I'll keep an eye on him," he said turning back to her. "It was good to see you again Kath. Heaven knows how long it will be before we will see each other again."

"Don't worry - you can always message me. Like we have been - just don't talk to me about my parents otherwise I won't answer you like the last time you tried it."

Rob didn't answer. It was best not to. Instead he leaned forward and hugged her. "It's time for us to go. I'll catch you 'round."

"Call me when you get there Rob. You can tell me what a dump DS7 is while I'm swanning about DS9." She slipped out of his embrace. "I know you will be able to get the station back into shape in no time Rob."

Sileth and Kriss watched as the shuttle came into land, Kriss held her close not wanting to let go. He had told her he loved her so many times he would never tire of saying it. He felt fantastic when Sileth was with him and Kriss was far away and buried.

"I'll call you as soon as I can" he whispered to her. "What about we honeymoon in Venice?" he asked her "As you liked it so much."

She smiled at him. "Yes" she replied "I think I'd like that very much"

"We'll find somewhere together" he told her and then picked up his bags and with one last lingering kiss they pulled apart and she watched him walk towards the shuttle alongside Rob. Kriss turned round and waved one last time and then a few minutes later the shuttle took off.

Sileth stood alongside her friend as they waited for their shuttle back to the Tomcat.

"I suppose your wondering what's going on" she asked Kath

Kath looked at her friend. "Tell me about it on the trip back to the Tomcat
