Two days have gone by. Deanna Troi and Will Riker still aren't speaking to each other.
It began when Deanna attended the Halloween cosume party on the Enterprise in a revealing outfit as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. Riker tried to cover her up, Deanna said she could come as who she liked and from that point it all got nasty.
Right now, they won't talk to each other on the Bridge, but only tell me to tell the other. What will happen when we get an attack by aliens is beyond me!
"We've got to do something, Jean-Luc." Bev says to me, "We can't let this go on. Deanna and Will have to be put together again. It's bad for Bridge morale."
"I agree, Bev." I reply, "But how can we do it?"
"There may be a way." Beverly answers with a sly look, "But I'm not sure if it would work."
"I'll try anything." I tell her, "I'm tired of being the go-between when they want to talk to each other."
"This is what we do." Bev decides, "You go to Will and say he has a visitor in Room 4X1. I will go to Deanna and tell her the same thing."
"Room 4X1 is a secure room." I tell her with an understanding voice, "It may work."
We call them both on the Com, and Bev and myself hide round the corner. Soon, we see Deanna approaching.
She enters the room and Riker comes in not far behind and also goes in the room.
"LOCK!" Bev shouts, and the two of us rush forward to seal it.
At first there are cries of "Let us out of here!!" for a few minutes, then the tone changes, and the two of them are exchanging insults. Bev and I are listening at the door.
"It doesn't sound like it's going too well." I remark.
"Give it time, Jean-Luc." Beverly replies, "Just give it time."
After a few more minutes of barbed insults, it all goes very quiet.
"Maybe they've killed each other?" I comment.
"I don't think so." Bev answers, and we move to unlock the door.
Bev and I get a little embarrassed, as we witness Riker and Deanna in heavy kissing mode. I give a discreet cough, which stops them.
"Err, sorry, Captain." Riker says as he puts his jersey back on, "Deanna and I had decided to make up after our little disagreement."
"So I see." I comment sarcastically.
Deanna giggles. Riker kisses her again and the two of them leave the room.
"Yes, Will" I overhear Deanna say, "I'll put that Elvira outfit on for you tonight."
"Well done, Bev." I whisper to her, "Peace is again restored on the Enterprise."
