T'Pol's Temptation (Part Two)
Guest Poster: T'Pol
Intendant Kira Nerys, who is from the same mirror universe I come from is about to beam over from her ship to the Enterprise. As I'm a wanted person there, and have no wish to go back, Captain Picard has made it clear that she may talk to be only, but should not try and get me aboard her ship.
As we go go to the transporter room, Brit walks with me closely.
"I'll lay my knuckles on her if she tries anything." she tells me.
"Good for you, sweetie!" I reply with a smile.
We await a moment . Kira beams over, and looks ar me straight away with a smile.
"Ah, T'Pol," she says, "You don't know what a pleasure it is to meet you at last."
The Captain goes through the usual greeting procedure, and reminds the Intendant of the conditions upon which he has allowed her to visit. With that he leaves the transporter room, so that just Brit, myself and Kira remain.
"And this is...? she says in a somewhat dismissive manner towards Britney.
"Hey!" Brit yells at Kira, "Watch how you speak. I'm Britney, and I'm T'Pol's girl."
"Oh, really?" Kira raises an eyebrow at this, "Now run along, as T'Pol and I have important matters to discuss."
At this, Britney lunges forward in anger, but I manage to separate the two.
"It's okay, Britney." I reassure her, "I'll remember what you said. Let Kira say what she wants to say."
Brit stomps off,
"Why don't you and I go to some quiet place where the two of us can chat." Kira says warmly to me, "Where we won't be bothered by anybody."
We go to the VIP quarters, where the two of us start to chat over a few drinks and cakes.
"I would have thought you would have found someone better than that Britney." Kira remarks, "I know you like her, T'Pol, but she seems awfully common, not your type at all."
"Once I started to get to know her, I found Brit was just like me." I reply, "She was on her own, a bit of a rebel, so we got drawn together."
"Whatever." Kira comments, "Now this is what I wanted to say. Yes, you are still a wanted woman in the mirror universe, but when the council conferred as to what price the bounty on your head shoould be, I always suggested you should be pardoned. I was on your side. Anyway, last week, they had enough of me and cast me out in my own ship. I found a crossover point and came into this universe."
"And the point of all this, Kira?" I ask, as if waiting for the end of an overlong story.
"Well, T'Pol" she starts haltingly, "I had always defended you, looked into your records, got so absorbed with you that after a while, I started to fall in love with you."
I drop my glass in shock.
