Deanna's Tiff (Part One)

What a relief the Halloween party is over.

I mean I thought it was going to be a lot of fun, but Deanna decided to come dressed as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.



There were lots of wolf whistles, and Riker rushed forward to cover her with his Dracula cape. The two of them then had an argument outside.

"I'll come as who I like!" Deanna had shouted at him, with us all pretending not to listen outside.

"You virtually don't have a costume on!" replied Riker, "This isn't a Betazoid wedding where everybody turns up naked!"

"You don't have to worry about that, Will Riker!" Deanna stormily said, "There won't be a wedding between us!"

"What do you mean?" he replied.

"It's obvious." she sniffed, "I can't have you ordering me about like this."

With that she walked off.

------

Now it's the morning and I'm in the Captain's chair, waiting to see what has happened. All the others on the bridge are casually chatting when the door opens and Riker comes in, looking sullen.

Everybody suddenly stops talking.



"Morning, sir." he says quietly.

"Morning, Number One." say I reply, "I hope that..."

Before I can continue, the Bridge doors slide open and Deanna comes out, with her hair arranged badly. She doesn't say anything but sits down at my left side. After a few minutes of silence, she turns to me.



"Captain." she says, "Would you kindly ask Commander Riker if he thinks my hairstyle and outfit is plain enough for his approval?"

"Counselor..." I begin.

"Captain." Riker interrupts, "Will you kindly inform Counselor Troi that I consider her appearance more than plain enough!"

I feel Deanna's fury start to increase.

This can't go on!

To be continued....

Oh dear, Captain, it seems to me that you are stuck between that proverbial rock and a hard place sitting between the two of them. You might want to run, er, move into your Conference Room and take cover!

No need of Betazoid empathy skills needed to pick up the hostile vibes here, eh Captain?

Send them on an away mission together... alone... that'll put things right.

Or they'll kill each other.

In which case you'll lose a Counselor but gain access to donuts again at breakfast.

Wow, she looks scary. I don't think she needs to dress up for Halloween.

Oh no, not the silent treatment.

Oh no, there's nothing worse than being in the middle of a lover's spat. Capt. you should just keep your mouth shut and wait for them to figure it out.

I agree with you all. Best to hide in the holodeck till it cools down!

Of course, the writer is totally fair.
