The Enterprise Christmas Party (Part Two)
Guest Poster: Beverly Crusher
No one takes my man away from, me!
The Enterprise Christmas Party had been going well, the usual this and that going on, until the Borg Queen arrived. She has two burly drones with her, who keep me aside while she whisks Jean-Luc on to the dancefloor. He can't do anything about it, and the pair of them have been doing smoochy dances since then.
I have stormed off to my quarters, to get my dress ammunition. Deanna follows me.
"What are you going to do, Bev?" she asks me desperately, "Don't do anything dangerous."
"I'm not going to." I reply, "It's time to break out the Emergency Dress."
"Yes." I say, "If anyone is going to dance with Jean-Luc, it's going to be me."
I free the Emergency Dress from it's wrapping and show it to Deanna. She gasps in amazement.
"Beverly." she comments, when she recovers from the shock, "You can't wear that, It's too short."
"I know," I reply, as I take off my first party outfit and put onthe Emergency Dress "But I'm wearing it all the same."
With it on, I emerge and stride back towards the holographic nightclub. I can tell the crewmen are turning their heads round as they go past.
Finally I walk in and head towards the dancefloor.
The Borg bodyguards look in stunned amazement. Even The Strolling Drones have stopped playing for a few seconds while everyone looks at me.
I walk up to The Borg Queen and Jean-Luc, both who I can tell couldn't believe the outfit I had on. I push the Queen aside and take Jean-Luc in my arms, saying calmly, "Thanks for looking after him, Queenie, I'll be dancing with him from now on."
Queenie has a defeated look on her. I see her say to herself "I can't beat that tonight."
"You must have broken open the Emergency Dress that I've heard so much about." Jean-Luc whispers in my ear as we glide the floor. You look sensational."
I smile as the hours go by. Queenie is forced to dance with Annika who is in her Seven Of Nine consiousness.
The songs the Strolling Bones play from the point I return tend to have a common theme. They play The Mini Skirt Song, Miniskirts In Moscow, Mini Skirts, and also Mascara Miniskirts and Madness.
"I think mini skirts are very much in the Hive Mind right now!" I laugh.
"Merry Christmas, Bev." he says.
"Merry Christmas, Jean-Luc." I answer before we kiss.
