((Corridor, USS Constitution-B))

=20

The two older officers were taking a brisk constitutional along the=20
Constitution's corridors, discussing life, the universe and everyth=
ing.=20
Including their adult children. They'd covered Wyn, and Cade had as=
ked=20
after Saveron's. The issue of T'Sera's unexpected p=
resent and lack of=20
communication was something which Saveron had meditated on.=20

=20

Saveron: I also have a daughter, T'Sera. She recently came aboard t=
he=20
Constitution as a civilian astrophysicist.

=20

Cade was perceptive enough to pick up the slight shift in Saveron's=
tone.

=20

Foster: You sound a bit=E2=80=A6 uncertain about that.

=20

The other man wasn't wrong. Saveron was endeavouring to determine t=
he=20
optimal way to approach the situation, given that, now that she was here,=
=20
his daughter appeared to be avoiding him.=20

=20

Saveron: T'Sera was always closer to her mother. After we were unbo=
und, my=20
daughter and I were not in close contact. She has not yet stated why she=20
took this posting.

=20

That prompted a lift of both eyebrows from the human doctor.

=20

Foster: That sounds like a good opportunity to talk face to face.

=20

He wasn't wrong.=20

=20

Saveron: I have been endeavouring to allow her the space she appears to=20
prefer. However I intend to initiate conversation in the near future, if=20
she does not.

=20

Cade nodded. He was sure the man understood about giving adult kids their=
=20
space, especially if relations were a little delicate. Here, perhaps, was=
=20
an opportunity to repair things between them, but Saveron also knew it was=
=20
as much an opportunity to completely blow things up. That was an outcome=20
that he preferred to avoid.

=20

Foster: I trust you will find a logical opening. ::He said with a tone of=
=20
support.::

=20

It was Saveron's turn to nod slightly in acknowledgement. He apprec=
iated=20
Cade's support. His people made a study of keeping their emotions r=
eserved,=20
and not letting them dictate their actions. But with the exception of those=
=20
who achieved kolinahr, they still had them, and strong ones. Saveron cared=
=20
deeply for his family, and the opportunity to repair relations with his=20
daughter was one which he should not pass up.=20

=20

Speaking of children, his mind turned back to Wyn and the matter of square=
=20
pegs in square holes. Evidence suggested that one might have moved to a=20
round hole.

=20

Saveron: One notes a change in your uniform since our last meeting.

=20

Cade seemed to be the kind of man who wore his heart on his sleeve, and=20
that heart was blue. But now the sleeve was red. It was unexpected.

=20

Cade chuckled very faintly, picking at the red collar.

=20

Foster: Uh, yeah. Got suckered into this.

=20

A few years ago, the Vulcan would have been puzzled by the Terranism. Now=
=20
he understood the term, if not the application.

=20

Saveron: You are not an individual whom I would expect could be easily=20
=E2=80=98suckered'. ::He observed curiously, inverted commas clangi=
ng into place.::=20

=20

Cade took in a long slow breath.

=20

Foster: You know twenty years ago I would never have considered myself=20
anything but a doctor. But somehow I got posted as a counselor on the USS=
=20
Astraeus=E2=80=A6 which was both hilarious and yet sorta fitting. Well, Ja=
lana=20
picked up on that and instead of counselor it's more of an advisor =
=E2=80=93=20
someone with experience to be a sounding board and keep watch on the kids.

=20

By =E2=80=98kids', the Vulcan deduced that Cade was referring to th=
eir younger=20
crewmates. The majority of whom were young enough to be their children. His=
=20
eldest was thirty-six.

=20

Saveron: A mission specialist? ::Which made sense; Cade had a wealth of=20
experience to draw from.:: I acknowledge that I would have judged the=20
likelihood of your departing medicine to be low. May I enquire as to what=
=20
prompted you to agree?

=20

Cade shrugged.

=20

Foster: I guess I=E2=80=98m at the age where the challenge keeps life inter=
esting. =20
And I hate being bored.

=20

Saveron: I cannot fault your logic. ::He acknowledged.:: And a change can=
=20
present an interesting challenge. I found that to be the case. Regardless=
=20
of your position, I do not doubt that there remain plenty of challenges in=
=20
the universe for both of us.

=20

The observation was made in a dry tone of voice. There had been a time when=
=20
Saveron would not have expected himself to leave medicine either, but his=
=20
journey into diplomacy and counselling had proven both challenging and=20
interesting. He hoped that Cade's change would prove the same.=20

=20

Foster: ::a nod:: This is true. In Starfleet no matter what you do there=
=20
is rarely a dull moment.

=20

Saveron: And your expertise is valuable. ::He glanced sidelong at his=20
companion.:: One would not wish to discourage you in any way, but I=20
understand that you did retire from Starfleet at one point?

=20

Humans had such short lives, as did many others species, though thanks to=
=20
modern medicine they were longer than they once were. But many preferred to=
=20
spend their later years in more leisurely pursuits than, for example,=20
trauma triage on a damaged floating city that might fall into the abyss=20
with you on it, whilst wearing an EVA suit.=20

=20

Cade shrugged a bit.

=20

Foster: You know, I did enjoy being retired, harassing undergrads, writing=
=20
papers and the like. But for now this keeps me busy. I suppose I always=
=20
hope Wyn somehow finds a way to have some more grandkids and I can put them=
=20
up in Pepperel in summers and just haunt the academic halls for another=20
twenty years. You know, some day. Today is not that day.

=20

There was a contemplative pause.

=20

Saveron: Your absence would be detrimental. ::He said at length.::

=20

Foster: ?

=20

Saveron: I find your company agreeable.

=20

The admission was made in quiet, measured tones. Saveron had a great deal=
=20
of respect for all his colleagues, but Cade was right in that many of them=
=20
were =E2=80=98kids' compared to the two old farts walking the halls=
. As well as his=20
invaluable expertise, Saveron appreciated the experienced perspective of=20
another =E2=80=98old man'. Even if, by Vulcan standards, he himself=
was still=20
young.=20

Foster: ?
