Sam walked with Tarra to the lounge, then dropped onto the couch, rolling over as Tarra tucked her in. It wasn't long before she was sound asleep, a gentle rumbling noise coming from her. And there she slept, dreaming of fire, sand, and dancing oranges.

JP between Lu and Kynthia


Lu heard the message and looked over at the screen. To say she wasn't nervous about saying who they were was an understatement. Muting any sounds coming from the bridge, Lu looked over her shoulder and yelled, "Kynthia! Should we let them know who we are?" She didn't even bother getting on the com, besides, she needed to yell.

Kynthia looked up in the infirmary. She smiled softly at Ameri. "Listen Mei mei, I got to go and deal with that. I'll be back soon though."

She made her way quickly past the others, not really wanting to share her news just yet. The finality of becoming the Captain was sinking into her mind fast, and creating it's own path there.

Comin' Lu!" she called up. Climbing out of her cabin, she looked briefly at Maverick's cabin as she passed it. 'Twould be her cabin soon. That would be interesting. Taking on the Captain's space as her own.

She bounced into the bridge. "What's up?"

Looking back at Kynthia, Lu sighed, "Their wantin' to know who we are and probably what we're doing here." She raised an eyebrow, "What should we do? Tis up to you."


Kynthia leant forward. She frowned at the repeating message.

"This is Kynthia, captain of The Monarch. We're bringing Saul Armstrong and his daughter Selene to the planet." Pulling out the envelope, she rattled off the reference number etched into the top of it.

She handed Lu the paperwork to look at with a small grin.

The message abruptly ceased while the information was processed. Together they waited for an answer.

Lu took hold of the papers when Kynthia handed them to her. "Wait, dropping off Mav and Selene? When did all this happen, and since when are you the captain?" Her head was spinning, to much had happened in the past while that she wasn't even sure she heard Kynth correctly.

"Maverick told me he wanted to stop flyin'. Seems this place we're going to is Selene's actual real home an' all. So he and the girl are stayin. He gave me the ship. I'm the captain as of about ten minutes ago. Though looks like he went an' filed the change a while back."

Just then, the reply arrived. "You will approach on exactly the vector we are sending you now. The appropriate people have been notified and will meet you on the surface."

A small beep followed the message. Numbers scrolled across the screen.

"Take 'er in Lu. Nice and easy please." murmured Kynthia.

Lu nodded and looked at the directions that she had been given and started to follow the path. It was odd to her that Mav was stopping his flying, especially when he was the one who got her off the streets and gave her a purpose. Shrugging, she kept on the path, hoping Mav and Selene would be happy here.

Tarra watched Sam sleep for a few moments before returning back to her charge in the Cargo Bay. She had been significantly less impacted by the day both physically and emotionally. That is until they returned from Leviathan, short one Shepherd, adding one Doctor, Ameri Webber who was physically recovering in the Infirmary, and of course former reporter and present scoundrel, Nakali Sjet and his crispness.

Not to mention the whole, Being-More-Curious-Than-Was-Good-For-Her part. She entered the Bay, seeing the water that had splashed around the tub from Nakali's seizure dripping beneath the deck; some still sitting, waiting for a miracle to evaporate the balance from the floor. Walking to the edge of the tub, she looked down at him, swelling slowly receding and made sure that his head remained above the waterline. IV bag was low and she swapped it out with an almost professional flair. Once again, she saw his eyes moving rapidly beneath lids and she leaned over to whisper in his ear. "I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me." A small pained inhalation of breath escaped her lips and she turned away, biting her lip to keep the tears from falling.

Feeling a little lost, she walked over to the clamped cleaning bucket, stuck in a small corner of the bay. Unhooking it, she brought it beneath the tub and began mopping up the remainder so no one would slip when they had to come and remove him. She remembered doing this outside of her own quarters and knew that she would no longer be comfortable there. She would need to move, which was good since she had almost packed everything up anyway.

Apparently, it took Sam to disrobe Nakali physically and Tarra to disrobe him of his secrets. She would have to decide how to tell him since tell him she must and began mentally composing what she might say. What tact would she take? How would he react? And thinking of him and the depth and breadth of it, she thought morosely, how would she? She didn't know how broken she could feel and she didn't revel in her knowledge. Her soul was heavy with it, knowledge of him swimming in her head until she felt that she would burst. She needed to get it out and try to figure out the best way to tell him. And in that moment she knew that it was no use. HE would have known how to approach it, HE would have three hundred angles and smile disarmingly, eyes sparkling and charmingly, making everything seem humourous and unbelievably easy to unravel.

She mused aloud in the empty Bay, slight sloshing sound from the tub as the movement of the Monarch, unfelt by her body was discernable by the lapping water against the sides. "Nakali," she began, thinking aloud and imagining him listening to her patiently as she spoke, "I was wondering if I could ask you about a specific thing I'm having difficulty with..."

Kynthia was there a little after she awoke, summoned there by her cry. Almost as soon as she came, however, she had to go again, attending to matters of the ship. The infirmary was still and quiet. Yet Ameri knew there were more patients than she. She had to find them, to avoid thinking. She didn't want to think. Didn't want to feel. She just needed to be useful.

With a wince, but no one to stop her, she pushed herself up, steadied herself, and then eased herself onto her feet. She took a deep breath, straightening, and waited to be steady, what with all the pain killers in her. Another deep breath, and she began to put together an IV, her hands almost automatic in the actions. As she moved, she realized she was still attached to an IV, and quickly detached it. A bandaid sealed the hole in her skin from the needle, and she was free to move around. The novice's robes she wore would have to do- she needed her back to be easily free for bandages and ointment.

With a new IV prepared, she went in search of her most needy patient- the strange man with all the burns. Ointments, creams, guaze, and the IV. She made her careful way to the galley. No Nakali. Turned around, toward the back. As she headed toward the passenger dorms, a voice echoed from the cargo bay. Curious as to who was talking to who, she headed toward the cargo bay. There was the stranger, in a tub presumably to cool him and hydrate him. The IV in him was nearly empty- lucky her.

"Excuse me," she said quietly, her gaze dropping to her feet as she spoke, almost embarrassed to interrupt. Ameri held the hand rail to steady her as she descended, and made her careful way toward Nakali. "I just wanted to check on him.."

Kynthia stared out of the window at the planet looming closer to them. It was close enough now that it was filling the space in front of them.

She looked at the shapes under the clouds, wondered which of the land masses they were going to land on. Which one was going to become his new home. She knew that she wouldn’t be able to stay there long. It would be too hard for her to watch him grow into his new life. And too hard for him to watch her take on his responsibilities.

She allowed herself to think then. About Maverick. Weddin’ he’d said. It would have torn at her harder some time back. Before Belladonna. Then allowed a moment for Chuy Lo. Brother of the heart. They’d been so much to each other once. The entire world in some ways, relying on each other heavily through the end of the war. When it came time, they’d all walked away so easily from him.

The tears slid down her face unheeded. The crew was so hurt both in spirit and body. She hoped she had the strength to keep them together in the Black. Sure was time for them to walk along that jagged path together.

For the next few hours, in silence, she watched the golden planet ahead of them grow until it filled the entire window. Just as the last sliver of the Black vanished from view, she whispered.

“God wish you well Maverick Armstrong. Be safe and happy.” she wiped her face with her sleeve and continued, “God keep you safe Joshua Long.”
