The Betazoid Conference (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Deanna Troi
I pace up and down the hotel carpet floor over and over in the room that Will Riker and I are sharing.
"Relax, Deanna!" Will says, "There is no need to get so tense about everything!"
"You think so?" I exclaim, "We arrive on Faros V for the Betazoid Conference, and who should be here but my greatest rival Lynne Shelloi, who stole all my boyfriends when we were teenagers. She's after you, Will., and she'll get you, I know she will!"
"Now she won't!" Will answers firmly, "You've told me to be on my guard against Lynne Shelloi. She won't get her claws into me. Now you go to the Conference and have a good time while I relax."
I then realise how silly I am.
"You're right, I'm just overreacting after seeing my old rival." I say, "She's probably completely changed. We might end up being friends!"
"That's more like it, Deanna!" Will says, "Now go and enjoy the first Conference while I relax by the pool. Let's hear no more about Lynne Shelloi."
I put on my Conference outfit and get ready to go out.
"Now have a good time while I'm with the other telepaths." I say, then head off toiwards the hall.
As I reach the door, I am greeted by Lynne Shelloi.
"Hello again Deanna." she says in a friendly manner before changing her tone, "Enjoy the Conference. While you're in there, I'll be stealing your man Will Riker. You know I can, as well, don't you?"
The rush of people entering in the Hall prevents me coming out. The officials won't let me out again, as I see Lynne walk away casually in the direction of the hotel pool, where Will is.
To be continued after the TWQ.....
