Lt Commander Serala: Could This Be Any More Embarrassing?

2020-05-12 01:33:09


(( OOC: I decided to try and bring a little humor to the briefing. You have
been warned. :D ))
(( First Officer's Office, Deck 2, USS Atlantis ))

Serala was sitting at her desk once more, but she wasn't getting an=
y work
done today because T'Saara was being very fussy. She hadn't=
been able to
find anyone to look after her today, so she had decided to bring her to the
office. Not much of a trip, certainly, considering the office was right
next door to her new quarters.

Serala: :: in Romulan :: Little Bean, what's wrong with you today? =
has to work.

T'Saara: :: fussily :: meakkaadda mea pppfffff waaa

Serala: But, I have work to do. We can do that later, what do you say?

T'Saara: wwaa waa maa baaa goom

Serala: Oh, Bean, I -

Thoran: =3D/\=3D Thoran to all senior staff. Briefing in ten minutes. =3D/\=

Serala: Wonderful. :: Looking over at T'Saara :: This is not going =
to go
over very well.

She was only two minutes from the bridge. She spent six of her ten minutes
calling all the people she could think of to look after her daughter, but
they all seemed to be busy.

oO Well, Little Bean, looks like you get to attend your first staff
meeting. Oo

Grabbing the baby carrier, she headed for the door and the bridge.

(( Observation Lounge, Deck 1, USS Atlantis - two minutes later ))

As she walked in, she could see several others already seated around the
table. The Captain looked at her and she felt herself blush in
embarrassment. No doubt, her cheeks were a brilliant olive green right now.

Thoran: Response

Serala: My apologies, sir. I couldn't find a sitter on such short n=
Most of them are in this room.

Thoran / Any: Responses

She took her seat and set T'Saara near her on the table.

Serala: :: to T'Saara :: Now be a good girl for mommy.

Suddenly realizing that all eyes were on her, she felt the blush deepen.

Serala: Sorry. Not very professional of me.

Thoran: Response

Any: Responses

(( OOC: Willing to continue the embarrassment if anyone wishes ))

Thoran: Thank you all for being so prompt. Help yourself to the
refreshments. Now I am sure you are all wondering why I have called you
here. The Freeworlds Council are holding a trade conference on Illara Prime
and have invited us to attend.

oO Interesting. Last time we were there, things were kind of interesting.
And the last diplomatic mission before that didn't end well. I wond=
er what
this one has in store for us. Oo

Thoran: The purpose of this conference from what I understand is to bring
together several different factions and establish new trade relations with
the Freeworlds.

Any: Responses

Kiax: Do we know who else they've invited, besides ourselves?

Thoran: An excellent question. From what I have been able to ascertain the
Freeworlds Council have invited representatives from the Caraadian Noble
Houses, Ferengi Commerce Authority, Romulan Republic and even the Valcarian
Imperial Republic.

oO Great. That means Mother will be there. How did I get so lucky? Oo

Kiax: Sounds like we're up against some fairly aggressive competiti=
on. What
have we got to bring to the negotiating table?

T'Saara: :: happily :: ggwwabble maaa fu

Serala: Since the Valcarians have been invited, sir, am I to understand
that means Ambassador Dels'an? And if so, will she be travelling wi=

again, or does she have her own transport?
