I've settled in here on the Enterprise quite well, I think, and have managed to bag me my number one Klingon!
Worfie is such a charmer!
I'm still getting some dark looks from the Troi woman, of course, but that's only to be expected. She tells everyone how I stole her man.
Why can't she just be happy with Riker? Why does a Betazoid have to be so greedy all of the time?
I haven't figured whether it's her who occasionally puts tripwires across the door to my quarters. Poor Worfie went flying over when he visited in the middle of the night.
What disturbs me is the fact that it might be Alexander putting up the tripwires. I'm trying so hard to get him to like me.
In Ten Forward, I bought him a beautiful Banana Sundae, and all he says is, "Do you know when Deanna is coming down? I like chatting with her."
That Troi woman!
I know he would like her to be with Worfie and him rather than me. It's not that he doesn't like Trills or me in particular, but Troi has got that awful gift of the gab that children go for.
Still. the latest movie will be shown at the cinema, "Rocky XXXVI". I decide to ask Alexander to come with me."
"Sorry" he says, "I've asked Deanna, and she will be taking me there instead."
I think it's time I had a talk with Worfie when he comes off his shift.
He comes back and hangs up his phaser, and has a glass of Klingon bloodwine.
"Worfie, darling" I say to him in my best feminine voice, "I think we need to have a talk with Alexander."
"It's not about the facts of life, is it Jadzia?" he asks, "He told me the biology class taught him everything. Actually from what he told me, I think they taught him more than I knew."
"No, it's not that" I tell him, "I think Alexander still isn't too fond of me."
"Give him time, Jadzia," he tells me, as if he has had a hard day at the office and just wants a rest, "He'll come round to liking you."
Worfie lies on the sofa and drops off to sleep; I can see I'm going to get no help from him.
I think the only way I'll win is to start thinking like a Klingon.
I go and seek out Alexander, who is in Ten Forward with some children.
"Come on!" I tell him, grabbing him by the hand, "We're going to the holodeck"
We both arrive at Holodeck 2, and program it.
"Now listen, Alexander" I say calmly, "You and I are going to compete in there"
We go in, where there is a series of caves. In front of each of us is a bat'leth, which we pick up.
"We will both face monsters, yours will be slightly less tough to compensate for your age, so the balance betweeen us is right. If you want to beat me, this is the way to do it, not with tripwires."
He looks puzzled, which answers a question for me.
Various monsters come forth and we both polish them off with relative ease; he even helps me with the last and toughest one.
He looks pleased and cheery.
"Let's go and have a Banana Sundae together in Ten Forward, Jadzia." he says.
I think I won, in one context there!
