Karena's Hen Night
Guest Poster: Karena
As I'm getting married next week to my pumpkin, Wesley Crusher, Ensign Crusher and her friend T'Pol has taken open themselves to organise something called a 'Hen Night', also known as a Bachelorette Party.
It is a ceremony where female friends take to woman out for one last evening before she weds. The event all seems very pointless, but decide to go along with it. After all, nothing will change when I get married. I'll still be ruling over Wesley.
All of the group, which comprises of myself, Britney, T'Pol, Seven of Nine, Deanna Troi, Jadzia Dax, Ro Laren, Jennifer Baxter, and Guinan. Beverly thought it best not to come, as she was Wesley's mother.
We are in the Starfleet Mall.
"Where are we going, Britney?" I ask.
"To one of T'Pol & myself's favourite hang-outs." she replies, "It's one of the few places that let us in. It's called the Cafe Sordid."
Some of the women shiver slightly. I hope it's the weather and not that they could have heard of it before.
"It's a groovy place." T'Pol adds, "Brit and I tried to get in two nights ago, as our favourite act, Joy Delight was playing. It turns out some people had booked before we did. We'll have to settle for the male act tonight."
"The male act?" I say in puzzlement.
"You'll see!" Britney answers with a laugh. Some of the other women are looking at each other as if they're not sure it's been a good idea to come.
Inside, the room is all dark, the occupants are mostly women, and looking very eager for the show to start. However, they take a look at the spear I am holding, and decide to move their chairs a little further away.
"I'm not too sure that this was a good idea, Jadzia." Ro whispers to her.
"Don't be sure." Guinan interrupts, "Let's see the show first."
"If the show fails to come up to expectations." declares Seven, "I shall assimilate those responsible."
The stage lights come up, and a voice announces that Rex Platinum is on the stage.
The other women in the audience rush forward, screaming "Rex!"
He then procedes to remove his clothing by starting with his shirt.
Rampant screaming ensues all around. The Enterprise women maintain a dignified stance, until Guinan shouts and rushes forward.
"Oh yeah, honey!!" she shout, and starts throwing Credits on the stage.
After that, we all proceed to do the same thing. The place goes crazy, as Rex is forced to flee the stage as the surge of women increases.
A little later, we leave the Cafe Sordid. Deanna takes me aside.
"Listen, Karena." she starts, "I've talked with the other women, and they've decided that the show we saw there should be forgotten about. Don't tell Wesley. I don't intend to tell Will. They might not quite understand why we went there."
"Sure, Deanna." I answer with a smile, "We went for a very quiet night out."
"Absolutely!" she answers with a smile, "That's what all Hen Nights are like."
