((Holodeck 1, Deck 4 -- USS Veritas))

Raissa had planned their excursion this time. She had loaded a program that=
=20
her twin brothers had made for her. And now she waited for Wil to join her.=
=20
The program was the environment that existed around her family's=20
farm/ranch. The northern part of what was known as Minnesota on Earth.=20

She was standing outside the stables, two horses saddled and waiting. Even=
=20
if Wil couldn't ride, the program would give him a gentle horse. Fo=
r=20
herself was a recreation of her childhood mount, Sunrise, a cream colored=
=20
Arabian steed. She gently stroked his neck while she waited.

Wil walked into the Holodeck with a backpack over his shoulder, and a=20
bottle of water in his hand.

As he walked in, he stopped to survey the scene. He saw Raissa and the two=
=20
horses outside of the stable, which stopped him in his tracks. The=20
holodeck doors closed behind him, which normally would have made him jump a=
=20
little - but he was too shocked to notice. His jaw dropped, as a smile=20
formed on his face.

Moonsong: ::smiles:: Nice to see you made it.

Ukinix: ::Smirking, looking around:: When you said =E2=80=9Chike=E2=80=9D, =
I thought you=20
meant with our own feet.

Raissa gestured encompassing the area around them. There were paddocks with=
=20
llama and alpaca wandering around and eating grass. In another paddock were=
=20
various horses, their tails flicking against the random holographic fly.=20
The house was a large three story affair, the walls appearing to be made of=
=20
rough wood that didn't diminish its grandeur. A porch wrapped aroun=
d the=20
entire front of the house. The barns and outbuildings were clearly state of=
=20
the art.

Moonsong: Welcome to Llamasong Farms. Also known as the Moonsong Ranch.

Ukinix: ::Taking a few steps as he looked around:: Raissa, this place is=20
gorgeous.

The weather was cool but not cold. It was a temperate autumn day. The trees=
=20
were already beginning to show their many colors. The air held a bit of=20
coolness with a touch of woodsmoke.

Moonsong: Do you ride?


He placed his hands on his hips, and looked at the two horses.

Ukinix: ::Chuckling:: I was hoping you weren't going to ask me that=
! That=20
probably gives you your answer, huh.

Moonsong: ::laughs:: I will take that as a no, then. So. ::she nodded=20
firmly:: Time to learn.


Will slowly nodded, and looked at the two horses.

Ukinix: Well, no time like the present. Safety protocols are active and=20
all that.

Moonsong: ::lifts an eyebrow.:: They are... now.

Ukinix: This is your family's farm?

Moonsong: Yes, a re-creation. My brothers made it for me after the first=20
time I came to the Shoals. They periodically send me updates so it remains=
=20
fairly current.

Wil walked over to the stables, and patted the beam that held up the main=
=20
verandah. He looked back at the large house, and admired the porch that=20
ran around the edge of the building.

Ukinix: I consider myself lucky. Thank you. ::looking at horses:: Which=20
one am I riding?

Moonsong: ::gestures at the brown mare:: I called up that one for you. This=
=20
one is mine.=20

He walked over to the other horse with no name, and patted her on her neck.

Ukinix: Ok then. Hmm, I think I'm going to call her =E2=80=9CBuckl=
ey=E2=80=9D... cos I've=20
got Buckley's chance=20
of=
=20
being able to ride her properly.

Moonsong: I am sure you will be able to handle it.

Ukinix: OK, so what do I do first?

Moonsong: ::looks him up and down:: Well...

Ukinix: Wait, if I'm going to do this=E2=80=A6 Computer. Cowboy ha=
t and poncho for=20
me.

The computer complied. Wil suddenly was wearing a cowboy hat, and a poncho=
=20
magically appeared, covering his t-shirt. They =E2=80=9Cperfectly=E2=80=9D=
matched the=20
shorts and hiking boots he was wearing. Raissa shook her head and then=20
pinched the bridge of her nose.

Moonsong: We are going to have to do a little better than that. ::she gave=
=20
him another look:: Computer, add jeans and riding boots to Ukinix attire.

Wil looked down. Denim was not something he wore much. The last time he=
=20
wore denim was a pair of shorts when he went to a simulated concert on the=
=20
holodeck with Geoffrey and Jayla. He lifted each knee one after the other,=
=20
to try and make them feel more comfortable.

Moonsong: No offense, Wil, but I do not wish to explain to G'var wh=
y the=20
inside of your legs from ankle to crotch are chaffed.


Wil's eyes opened wide, as he momentarily stared ahead, momentarily=
struck=20
with fear.

Ukinix: ::Dryly:: Neither do I.

Moonsong: I think the first thing to do is get you in the saddle.

He moved over towards the horse. He looked at the saddle, and the stirrup=
=20
that was hanging down from it. He bit his lip, and placed his hand on his=
=20
hips.

Ukinix: How am I=E2=80=A6 what's the best way to get on?

He reached up and scratched his head under his hat.

Moonsong: I could instruct you but knowing your luck, watch you flip=20
yourself over to the other side. Or=E2=80=A6

Ukinix: ::Looking at Raissa:: Site to site transport?

Moonsong: We do this the easy way for now.

Ukinix: ::Looking back at horse, single nod:: Site to site transport.=20


Wi reached under his poncho and tapped his combadge.

Ukinix: =3D/\=3D Ukinix to Queens. =3D/\=3D

Queens: =3D/\=3D Go ahead Lieutenant. =3D/\=3D

Raissa moved to =E2=80=9CBuckley=E2=80=9D and patted the animal's n=
eck. Then she did a=20
short series of clicks and whistles. Obediently, the horse carefully folded=
=20
her legs under her and settled on the ground. Wil only had to swing a leg=
=20
over to get into the saddle.

Moonsong: All aboard=E2=80=A6

An impressed Wil was silent for a few seconds=E2=80=A6

Queens: =3D/\=3D =E2=80=A6 Wil? =3D/\=3D

Ukinix: =3D/\=3D Uh, never mind. Ukinix out =3D/\=3D

Queens : =3D/\=3D What was all that abou- =3D/\=3D

The conversation ended when Wil tapped his combadge again. He stepped=20
forwards towards the horse, to stand next to Raissa. She showed him how to=
=20
hold the reins and settle his feet in the stirrups.

Moonsong: Hold on to the pommel while she gets her feet under her. I=E2=80=
=99d hate=20
to see you fall off so soon.


He looked over the top of the saddle.

Ukinix: What's a pommel=E2=80=A6 ah, the round thing! I thought ma=
ybe that was for=20
navigation or something.

He swung his leg over the saddle, and sat down. A bit too hard. He=20
silently mouthed an =E2=80=9Cah!=E2=80=9D sound, before grimacing. His eye=
s started to=20
water a little.

Ukinix: oO Ouch! Oo

Another couple clicks and whistles and the mare rose to her feet=20
gracefully, even as her passenger wobbled.

Ukinix: ::Leaning forward in pain slightly:: Woah.. woah...=20

Moonsong: Just be glad I did not give the command to roll over.


When the horse had got to her feet, Wil looked around, before looking down=
=20
at Raissa. He fleetingly sensed what she was feeling...

Ukinix: There's a little wicked part of you in there somewhere, isn=
't=20
there, Commander.

Moonsong: ::giving him a serene look:: I do not know of what you speak,=20
Lieutenant.


Ukinix: ::Really bad accent:: Saddl'up, pardner.

Raissa snorted. One of these days she was going to take him on a real=20
=E2=80=98cowboy' adventure. She mounted with a grace that made the =
process look=20
easy. She took the reins in one hand.=20

Moonsong: Ready to go?

Wil clumsily grabbed the reins of the horse.

Ukinix: Right, so=E2=80=A6 how do you=E2=80=A6

Moonsong: Well...

Buckley quietly made a vibrating sound with her mouth closed.

Ukinix: ::Leaning forward, patting horse on neck:: Hey there, Bucks - Woah!

He felt himself leaning left a little, almost falling off. He grabbed on=
=20
to the pommel, and pulled himself up to be balanced.

Raissa's ability to restrain her laughter was on the level of incre=
dible=20
Vulcan emotional control. She merely raised an eyebrow, her voice purely=20
neutral, despite her choice of words.

Moonsong: You alright there, Sparky?

Ukinix: I'll just sit up straight from now on, hey?

Moonsong: Good idea. Leaning forward often means you want to move=E2=80=A6 =
faster...

Ukinix: What's your horse's name?

Moonsong: ::smiles:: Sunrise=E2=80=A6. I first got him when I was fourteen.=
::winks=20
at him:: Although I was on horseback before I could walk.

As they slowly made their way past a paddock with llamas and alpacas, Wil=
=20
imitated the voice of a well known bald French Starfleet Admiral.

Ukinix: Captain's log, stardate=20
four-one-two-five-three-nine-eleven-zed-alpha-point-fish. The USH Sunrise,=
=20
escorted by the USH Buckley, are making their way past a civilisation made=
=20
up of strange long-necked quadruped creatures. We are about to attempt=20
first contact, using standard universal hailing protocols. ::Shouting out=
=20
to llamas and alpacas:: Oi!

A dark brown llama, it's dark muzzle well sprinkled with gray, lift=
ed it's=20
head from where it was grazing near the fence. Raissa eased her horse to=20
Wil's other side and out of range.

Moonsong: ::mildly:: Wil=E2=80=A6

Ukinix: ::To Raissa:: Hey, check this one out, that got his attention.

The llama began to trot along the fence watching Wil.

Ukinix: ::Chuckling:: Look he's following-

The next thing they knew, the llama paused and then spit a huge glob of=20
saliva heavily mixed with half chewed grass. The mucus missile hit the side=
=20
of Wil's boot and dripped in a disgusting mass down his ankle=E2=80=
=A6

Ukinix: ::Yelling in shock at llama:: HEEEYYYY, YOU LITTLE BUGGER!=20

Moonsong: Captain's log, stardate you know when you are: First cont=
act has=20
been made with the long necked aliens. There was some communication failure=
=20
until it was explained that the long necked emissary spits at everyone.=20
Llama=E2=80=A6 like their cousins the camel, are prone to spitting to expre=
ss=20
themselves. Colonel Ukinix is lucky I changed his outfit.

An appalled Wil screwed his nose up and looked down at his boot.

Ukinix: ::Looking at llama:: Gross, you half-arsed giraffe! ::Looking at=
=20
Raissa:: Wait, I'm a Colonel?

Moonsong: ::smirking as she led them around the paddock and onto a path=20
that led to the woods:: That, by the way, was Murry. Raised him myself.

Ukinix: =E2=80=9CMurry=E2=80=9D, huh? ::cheekily:: Did you teach it how to =
spit like that?

Moonsong: ::laughs:: Oh no=E2=80=A6 that came naturally.

Ukinix: We're headed into the trees?

Moonsong: Why, yes we are.

Ukinix: ::Gripping tightly onto reins:: Will the horse know where to go? =
=20
Or do I have to guide it.

Wil's knuckles were a little white from holding on so tightly.

Moonsong: Do not worry so, Wil. I will not allow harm to come to you.

Ukinix: I'll follow your lead, Commander.

Raissa chuckled again. She smirked a bit as she noted Wil's death g=
rip on=20
the reins he really didn't know how to use. This would definitely b=
e fun.=20
She looked at his horse again and did a short series of clicks.

Moonsong: Heel!

=E2=80=98Buckley' moved to walk next to Sunrise. The holo-horse pro=
gram had all the=20
voice commands Raissa and her family used with their show horses.

Ukinix: So this is where you grew up?

Moonsong: ::smiling as they moved onto a path that wound lazily through the=
=20
trees.:: Yes it is=E2=80=A6

Ukinix: ::Looking around:: Not a bad place to grow up. Your family=20
originally from around here?

Moonsong: The Moonsongs have been in this area in some manner for many many=
=20
generations. We are descended from Native American tribes that lived in=20
this area. Although we have only been raising llama and alpaca for a few=20
hundred years since the 20th century.

Ukinix: What do you use them for? ::Looking down at his ankle:: Besides=20
grass filled projectile snot balls.

Moonsong: ::winks at him:: Mostly for their fur. Remember that blanket I=20
gave you? That was made from alpaca fur. In the past we also raised them=20
for meat. Very tasty. They also were used as pack animals. Quite nimble.=20
Just be glad I did not choose them as our mounts. It is an entirely=20
different skill set.

Ukinix: ::Doubtful tone:: Riding a llama.

Moonsong: Yes. The alpaca are a bit small for it, but their fur is softer.

Ukinix: I don't believe you. Is this one of those jokes you play on=20
outsiders?
