Pavel awoke to the sound of running water... he felt really warm and the sheets were really soft, that was when he realised he wasn't in his own room and sat up suddenly, looking around him until he realised where he was. Guessing that Raina was in the shower he stretched before rolling out of the bed, trying to pull his uniform straight and wipe the sleep from his eyes at the same time. Having nearly fallen over he began to make the bed out of habit. The water shut off as he was fluffing the pillows and Raina walked into the room rubbing herself dry with the towel. Blushing Pavel looked away but he sneaked a quick peek before she slipped on a warm thick dressing gown.
"My stomach is feeling strange again, do you want to ask the computer for some food? I'm not really sure what's appropriate at this time of day."
"Erm... yes, yes of course, is there something in particular you would like?"
"Hmmm chocolate would probably be a bad idea, but I did like the flavour, if there's something with a different chemical composition but a similar flavour that would be nice."
"Perhaps some apple blinchiki?" Pavel suggested.
"Whatever you think we should have, it's not like I've had much experience of the whole food thing." Raina replied as she moved to hug him from behind standing on tip toe to rest her chin on his shoulder. "I don't remember much about earlier, I didn't hurt you did I?"
"No, Mr Scott has only a few bruises."
"Then why have you been avoiding looking at me?"
"You..." Pavel turned to face her, blushing "You were naked."
"Oh... Ok... I was worried I'd upset you or something." She smiled. "I should probably apologise to Scotty at some point though, even if it was kind of his fault. But first, blinchiki! Although, he does like food, maybe I should ask him to come by and have some with us."
"No." Pavel blurted out quickly, wanting to spend some time with her while he could. "Mr Scott... he is a very busy person, we can go and visit him later."
"Ok." Raina looked thoughtful for a minute. "I suppose we can try and find something else to do for entertainment after the food." Pavel tried not to think of the half dozen ideas he had crowding his mind from that comment. "Hmmm, I really need to come up with a list of things to try out, I mean I've tried eating, which is pretty great, but there's all sorts of other things humanoids seem to enjoy, like sex, I've really got to do that at some point. Is it true it's even better than eating?"
"I am not sure... I have yet to find out, but I think it would be... with the right person."
