=E2=80=9CRest Easy(er Said Than Done)=E2=80=9D ((Sickbay, Playroom, USS Thor)) Brodie: It's been a long day hasn't it, Garth? Garth: Yeah. Maybe we should:: yawn:: rest while they're all asleep. Brodie: You get yourself comfortableI'll take the first wa= tch. ::Brodie took a cushion from behind him on the sofa and slid it across the floor for Garth to usewithin a few minutes he was sleeping soundly= . Brodie felt himself starting to drift off when the movement of the door caught his attention.:: ::The door to the room slid open and Turner walked in, still in her torn glad rags. Brodie moved a finger to his lips in a hushing gesture and then pointed all around the room at the various sleeping figures. Toni walked over, whispering.:: Turner: Want a pillow for your back? Or I can take Tyler, if you want to stretch your legs. This hard floor isn't very comfortable. ::Brodie eased away from Garth, who was sound asleep on the floor and handed Tyler over. He hadn't really realised but his arm had gone n= umb from being in one positionhe shook it out to get the blood flow back.:: Brodie: ::Whispering:: Don't worry, I've slept on worse. Ho= w're you though, everything alright? Turner: I'm okay. Hendon said it wouldn't be a good idea for me to go back to the Embassy until we hear from Hannibal that everything is clear down there. ::Brodie noddedhe'd been thinking the same thing. He=E2=80= =99d been playing things over in his mind. That was a concealed explosive inside a heavily guarded embassy on the day of a major dignitary's visit. It would have been= swept by Starfleet Security, Laudean security and probably checked over by the marine detachment tooyet something still got through. Turner may n= ot have been the specific target =E2=80=93 and that was one question to be answered= . The second was the all to likely possibility that the bomber was either someone already inside the workings of the Embassy or had help from someone who was.:: ::It was not a jolly thought and didn't need to be said at this sta= ge in the night.:: Brodie: I think that's wise. Hannibal and Williamsboth Wil= liamswill have their hands full just now. You're safe up here so they can work wit= hout worry. ::She eased herself down onto the floor facing him. She looked exhaustedwhich was hardly a surprise.:: Turner: I really appreciate you for keeping them. I hope they didn't give you a hard time? Brodie: Ach, no. They were a bit worried and I think the sudden movement must have upset them a bit. A little unsettled but I'm sure they=E2= =80=99ll feel better for some sleep. That goes for you too, by the way. Turner: ??? Brodie: Well it's not the Risa Grand Excelsior but it'll do= for tonight I'm sureand you'll all be together. Turner: ??? Brodie: I need to changeand get an update. I'm also going = to reach out to someone whomight be able to give us some help. Turner: ??? Brodie: I'd rather not say just nowit might not be possibl= e. Turner: ??? ::Brodie eased himself free from Garth, leaving him sleeping, and pushed himself upto his feet.:: Brodie: Rest easyI'll make sure you're not disturb= ed. Any problems, I'm on the comm. and I'll only be along the corridor. Hendon will be nearb= y too. Turner: ??? ::Brodie nodded as he left. On his way out he took his blood stained jacket from behind the desk where he had thrown it earlier. He nodded at Hendon as he left and headed down the corridor to what was essentially his office. It had a couch he could sleep on, so he'd still be nearby, but first= he had some work to do.:: TBC ------------------------------------ Lt.
