*((RECREATION DECK #2 - LEVEL 27 - DS26))* ::Talos had decided to stay at the party for a little bit longer, though he was keeping a close watch on the time. His *appointment *with Aitas was not one he would be late for. He was standing alone now, though that was probably for the best as any telepath in his proximity would be catching wildly inappropriate transmissions until he calmed himself down. He shook his head a few times and let a out a long slow exhale, forcibly wresting control of his mind from the sort of frenzy it had been riled up into. An idea came to him and he crossed over to the bar.:: *Dakora*: ::He raised his hand to catch the attention of the holographic bartender:: What's a good shot for a celebration? ::The Barman's program seemed a bit sketchy as he flickered in and out of existence as he turned towards Talos.:: *Bartender*: Teq-Teq-Tequila Sir! ::He held up an old fashioned looking glass bottle:: A swig of this will raise the spirits of all involved! ::Talos hadn't heard of tequila, but it sounded like a Klingon word... or maybe Andorian. The emptiness of the hologram's telepathic presence was a stark contrast to his previous conversation. He shrugged his shoulders.:: *Dakora:* Sounds perfect, Give me two. ::The bartender complied, pouring two standard shot glasses full of the clear liquid and setting them on the counter. Talos nodded his thanks and took a glass in each hand, scanning the room until he found his target. He headed straight towards his newly promoted roommate with a smile on his face. To say that he was in a good mood was a bit of an understatement.:: *Dakora:* Congratulations Hal! ::He extended one of the glasses towards him:: Or should I call you Sir? *Mika*: ? ::He looked down at the glass with a devious grin.:: *Dakora:* It's tequila, a celebratory Klingon drink... I think. ::He let a look of feigned worry play across his face.:: If you don't drink yours, then I'll have to drink both and you wouldn't want to make me do that, right? ::Of course Talos wasn't going to force the man to drink if he didn't want to, but a little peer pressure never hurt now and then, did it?:: *Mika:* ? ::Talos held his shot up in a salute of sorts.:: *Dakora*: To *Lieutenant *Hal Mika! ::He saw a few others nearby raise their drinks, even though they probably had no idea what they were toasting. Talos tossed back his shot before he could see whether or not Hal did. The taste wasn't his favorite, but not as bad as some of exotic beverages he'd tried.:: *Mika*: ? ::Talos set his now empty glass on a nearby table, and turned back to Hal.:: *Dakora*: Hey man, a new pip is worth celebrating. ::He laughed to himself.:: Speaking of things worth celebrating, I'm probably not going to be home tonight, so don't wait up for me. *Mika*: ? ::He waggled his eyebrows at the Ba'ku counselor before risking a glance towards Aitas, who had joined Whittaker's party.:: *Dakora*: Oh, she's apparently good friends with the Captain, severely outranks me and is two or three times stronger than me....::He screwed up his face in mock indecision.:: I may be dead or demoted tomorrow, but you know... ::He grinned.:: Worth it. *Mika:* ? ::A glance at the chronometer on his wrist told Talos that he needed to get a move on.:: *Talos: *Well, it looks like I've gotta run. ::He reached out and clasped Hal on the shoulder.:: Enjoy yourself, you've earned it. ::With that, Talos turned and headed for the exit, wishing that he could feel this excited and optimistic every day.:: TAG *=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D//////=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D* *Ens.
