Annika's First Date (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Annika Hansen
As this is my first date in the real world, after being in the computer generated one, it;s quite an event. However, Reg Barclay is a rather neurotic type. We are in Ten Forward, about to have our first drink, but Reg is having difficulty getting Guinan's attention to order it after she greeted us initially.
"GUINAN!!" I shout at the top of my voice; everybody looks round and the El-Aurian comes to us.
"Sorry I was a little late in getting to you." she whispers quietly, "Can you keep it down a little?"
"When we get a little better service!" I snap back. Actually, I'm amazed at my response, as I would never say something like that to anyone. I wonder if some of Seven's agression has come through on to me.
Guinan slams the drinks on our table.
"Annika!" blushes Reg, "You'll get us t-thrown out of Ten Forward!"
"A little better service would have been appreciated." I tell him, as I knock back my drink in one go. "Come on, let's go."
The two of them go to my quarters, where I serve him a beautiful drink. Reg is looking around, feeling rather nervous.
"L-look." Reg starts to say, "T-this is a beautiful drink, b'but I don't t-think I can....
I go and change into a flimsy outfit and sit on the sofa. Reg looks quite panic stricken.
"Sit with me, Reg." I quietly say,then I hear myself saying "Resistance is..."
"....Futile!" he adds, "You're Seven, not Annika!". He runs out faster than as if he were going to be assimilated by the Borg Collective.
"Seven!" I say, "You promised you were going to stay quiet."
"So I was." my other self replies, "But you were just using your body to get what you want. I had to stop that"
"If you don't let me have time to myself, you won't get it either." I remind her. Seven grumbles.
"Very well." she answers. "I shall stay quiet. You can go and get Reg Barclay back."
"I don't think I'll get him back, Seven." I answer, "He was neurotic enough as he was!"
