Ensign Britney's Parents (Part Four)
Guest Poster: Ensign Britney
I'm beginning to think it was a big mistake having Captain Picard along with us on the trip to my home planet of Delta. I just wanted to intoduce my soulsitah T'Pol to them, but instead, my over-amourous mother has become attracted to the Captain. T'Pol and I just came across them as she was about to go way beyong normal Ambassadorial boundaries!
T'Pol and I retreat to our bedroom very quickly, but soon after, I herar a frantic knocking on the door. I know this isn't room service.
The Captain comes through, looking very stressed.
"Ensign Britney." he says desperately, "What you saw I could not get out of. Your mother had me cornered, and was staring to take off her clothes when you came in."
"My mother has always been very amorous." I concede, "I believe she has worked her way through many high-ranking officers."
"But your mother is married, Brit." T'Pol comments, "What does your father say about it."
"Oh, he doesn't mind." I reply, "In fact he has his own people he likes to stay with as well. That's the Deltan philosophy of alternate lifestyles. We never live conventionally. That's why I'm the way I am."
"Well what can we do?" the Captain asks, "I don't want to risk a diplomatic breach by rejecting Natalia, but she needs to be told that this sort of lifestyle isn't for me."
"Perhaps we need to ask my father?" I suggest, "He could tell her."
The Captain goes somewhat white, but agrees to it.
The next morning, the three of us are heading towards to offices of my father, Ambassador Yul.
"Good morning, Britney, T'Pol and Captain Picard." he says, ""What can I do for you?"
I give the Captain a kick with my Dr Martens boots and T'Pol and I push him forward."
"Ahhh..." the Captain starts, "Err....Ambassador Yul...I just want to mention that your wife Natalia visited last night..."
My father laughs out loud.
"Ah." he chuckes, "Natalia and I were chatting about that over cornflakes this morning, and how you avoided being seduced by her. Did you want me to mention to her that you don't indulge in the unusual lifestyles we do."
The Captain heaves a sigh of relief.
"Exactly, Ambassador." he says.
"There's nothing to worry about, Captain." he says, "We discussed it, and you have nothing to fear. Natalia realises that not all races live like we do."
He then turns to T'Pol and me.
"Now that is all sorted out." he says, "T'Pol, will you and Britney come to a formal dinner with Natalia and myself? We can have a good talk."
Now it's my turn and T'Pol's to look worried. What will happen?
