(( Day 3, Bridge, USS Atlantis, Helm/Ops Station )) :: Lixxa had begun her day as usual, with a few hours of basotile. This should have the benefit of helping control her telepathic reception and reduce or prevent the headaches that plagued her with prolonged exposure to the thoughts of others. She had then come directly to the bridge. Modifications were being made to the helm to help her more efficiently do her new job from one position, instead of having to run from station to station. Not really a practical working situation. She wanted to be sure that the installation was going according to her specifications. Additionally, once the installation was completed, she would need to calibrate her systems and fine tune them to her desired configuration. As she stepped off the turbolift, she noticed that Commander Williams was working the bridge today. Scuttlebutt had it that he and the recently departed Dr. Cattan were a couple. Something she had observed first hand at the party the other day. :: oO I wonder how he's handling her leaving? Oo Williams: Morning, lieutenant oO I still can't get used to that. Oo Maeli: Good morning, sir. Williams: I believe our engineering team is making the required changes to your station for your new task, congratulations again on your promotion by the way. Maeli: Thank you. I am still having a hard time accepting that I really got the promotion this soon. Not that I am complaining :: she added hastily :: = it's just so unexpected. And then to be made HCO instead of just helm. :: shaking head in disbelief :: Anyway, I heard the engineers would be up here today to make the modifications I had requested. Williams: I take it you are here to have a look at their handy work. Maeli: Yes. I'm glad to see you have the bridge today, Might make t= he boredom a bit more enjoyable. Williams: Is that so? We didn't get to talk much after the ceremony= . Maeli: Yes. After all the singing, I had a headache and needed to leave. But I had a great time. Especially when you pulled me up on the table with you and Burke. Williams: ::Smiling :: Yeah, that was fun. Shame those evening always go this fast. :: Lixx didn't need to be telepathic to sense the sudden change in = emotion in the First Officer. One moment he was almost happy, then the next she could see the sadness wash over his face. :: Maeli: Are you okay, Commander? Williams: Huh? :: He seemed as if he was coming back to reality from wherever his mind had just taken him. :: Sorry, my mind drifted for a moment. Was starting to think about what I would be doing tonight. Maeli: And what, exactly were you thinking about doing tonight? Williams: Well I was thinking about a good workout, but now that I think about it I might look for a sparring partner to play some darts. You wouldn't happen to know anyone would you? Maeli: Sounds interesting. Normally, by the end of the day, the constant inundation has gotten to me and I just need to retreat, but I suppose I could be persuaded to play darts for a little while. I have to warn you, though, I am terrible at the game. As an artist, I have great hand-eye coordination, but for some reason that doesn't translate to games f= or me. Still, I'm game. Poseidon's Lounge, say around 19:30? Williams: reply Maeli: Good, then I'll see you there. And if it can get your mind o= ff Dr. Cattan for a little while, it will be worth the little bit of discomfort I will experience. And no, I didn't need my telepathic abilities to t= ell me what was on your mind. Williams: reply Maeli: Well, then, sir. I do need to check on the status of the modifications. If you will excuse me? Williams: reply :: Lixxa took her leave of the Commander, and moved over to her station where two engineering crewmen were working on the console. :: oO I really should swing by medical and see if they can give me a prescription for something to help control my headaches.
