Roommate Gossip Session
Shore Leave: Business As Usual
Location: Thyra and Claire's Quarters
Claire entered the quarters, almost immediately kicking off her heels, and hopping onto one of their couches. It looked like Thyra wasn't in the main room, but by this time she was likely back in her own bedroom. "Oh, Thyyyyraaaa," Claire called out, dragging her roommates name out extra long. "I think it's time for one of our little chat sessions."
Thyra was painting in her bedroom as she heard the squeal of her roommate. She put her brush down and walked out of her bedroom. She was wearing a comfortable grey and pink sweat suit. She sat down on the couch next to her roommate. "Well I am all ears." Her antennae were also pointed at Claire.
"Ok...so...." Claire began, before looking over her roommate. "Actually, now I'm jealous of how comfortable you look. Stay here, I'll be right back."
The science officer hopped up and ran into her room, shedding the slightly stuffier white blouse and long blue skirt that she'd worn for her evening and opting for a pair of yoga pants and a tank top.
"Ok, so...I just got back from a evening out with a certain Security Chief, who I am pretty sure has the hots for yours truly..." She said as she plopped back down next to Thyra.
"Oh, wonderful choice," Thyra said, "the Commander would be so lucky to be with someone like you. Do you have the hots for him?" She immediately returned the question to her roommate.
"I'm...not sure yet. He's definitely cute. But you know I'm weird about getting too tied down to anything. He mentioned the potential of an 'us' and I think it freaked me out a little." Claire paused for a moment before continuing. "I don't know, maybe it was just an over reaction from me. We're setting up plans for another one. I think that might make me feel more comfortable."
Thyra nodded. "I see." She realized in that moment not everyone was as outgoing as she was. "So what are you two planning to do?" She changed the subject.
"We talked about going camping down on the surface, once we arrive at the planet tomorrow. Could be fun, I think! It'll be especially nice to get off ship and in some fresh air," Claire said, lying back on the couch a bit. "And I think it'll be a good second run at things. We'll get to talk about stuff without anyone around to listen in."
"Oh that sounds nice. I think he might have mentioned it when I talked to him," She said smiled. "That is great to do. You deserve some time away."
"Ooh, he's talking about me. Good to know I'm worth bragging about," Claire said, indulging herself for a moment. "Alright, I'll give hime a try. He's also agreed to help with my little side project. You remember my 'plans' to turn Astrometrics into a secret dance hall? I think he's gonna cover for us with security."
"Well," Thyra said grinning, "You should be keeping him warm then tomorrow if you want to keep that cover."
"We'll see," Claire replied, shooting her roommate an amused voice. "On that note, how have things been going with your doctor friend?"
Thyra smiled and said a little in thought, "Very good actually. I just have no idea where this is going though. But I am curious. It feels as if we tuned to each other."
"Well, that's good!" Claire said, enthusiastically. She was glad her friend was happy with her little situation. The Doctor seemed like a cool person, but it was Thyra's enthusiasm that had really reassured Claire. It was funny how quickly the two had bonded. "On an unrelated note, I am continuing my ever failing attempt to stick to a gym schedule. Any interest in joining?"
"Sounds good," Thyra replied. "I go to the gym in the morning, well I try to every morning. I skipped once or twice. Company would be appreciated."
Claire smiled. "Perfect! Morning it is."
