Alexander In Love (Part Two)

Guest Poster: Worf

Jadzia and I are still stunned by the news that Alexander has asked his young Career Advisor Tanya out on a date and that she has accepted.

"What are we going to do, Worfie?" asks Jadzia, "Surely we can't let Tanya..."

"Of course not." I tell her, "Though I must admit that on the Klingon homeworld, a warrior can have such interests at an early age."

"We can't allow it here!" Jadzia insists, "Come on! Let's talk to Tanya."

We march back to the office. I'm never exactly fond of these sort of confrontations. I would rather be on Tactics against a fleet of Romulan battle cruisers.

Sitting in her office, is Tanya.

"Hello, Lieutenant Worf, Jadzia." she says.

Jadzia walks up to her and slaps Tanya on the face.

"Cradle snatcher!"" she calls out, "Trying to date a young boy like that."

It's at times like this I wish the ground would open up and swallow me.

"Whatever do you mean?" asks a puzzled Tanya.

"Don't act the innocent with me, Tanya!" Jadzia says threateningly, "Alexander has told me how he asked you for a date, you accepted, and now he says he is in love."

"Oh dear." Tanya replies, "Alexander has misunderstood everything."

"What do you mean?" I ask.

"Well." starts Tanya, "Alexander asked me if he could see me again in Ten Forward later tonight. naturally, I thought he wanted some more help with his career work, so I said yes. He never mentioned that he had romantic feelings for me. Oh dear."

"I feel that Alexander is going to suffer a broken heart, Worfie." Jadzia tells me.

"I agree." I tell her, "It is all part of growing up."


Later, Alexander comes in after talking to Tanya in Ten Forward. His eyes are reddened, but he shows no sign of weakness.

"Are you all right, Alexander?" I ask.

"Yes, father." he answers, "I've decided I'm not really in love with Tanya. She is too old for me. I think I prefer the girls in my class."

He walks off with his head held high. I still hear a slight sniff.

His first big crush and she crushed his heart. Hopefully he'll find a slightly younger girlfriend soon.

Captain, please tell Worf that Alexander has borne his sufferings well, and has maintained his honor.

Linda said...

Sounds to me like he handled this like a true Klingnon warrior and he should be commended for his valor in the face of lost love - which is one of the toughest things to ever face.

Footsteps said...

Ahhh... Unrequited love is tough at any age.
Sounds like she let him down gently though, so that he could almost think it his own idea...

Titania Starlight said...

Those first crushes are tough. I was too shy to let on I had any crushes. I am sure a nice little girl of his own age will distract him from Tanya.

The Real Mother Hen said...

Nice - referring to the slap! Oh I love drama, in fact it should be, (action) slap slap slap, "you bitch!" wowwwwww!

Captain: Forgive me, for I have sinned :D)! At age 12 I had a bedroom door length poster of Raquel Welch!! So, I do understand the viccisitudes aboard the ship! :)

Jen said...

It's for the best, she looks too breakable for Klingon lovin'.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

So sad! That's what young love can be like.

Michael, lucky you to have a Raquel Welch poster at the age of 12. My parents would never have let me have something like that then.

Told ya it would end in tears well almost, Alexander is too much the warrior (that he doesn't want to be) to let it show.

I hope Tanya wasn't too heartbroken.
