In a Galaxy far, far away...
Just passed my online Cisco final, so here's a little bit until Thursday. I have yet another lab exam then.
Disclaimer: See previous.
Shi'ar Space, Andromeda Galaxy.
"What are you going to do with her mom?" Joyce was monitoring Lilandra's vital signs. She had been through the Medic flash education program that uncle Chris had suggested. She and her mother were part of the ship's medical crew while her husband Gram had gravitated towards the space fighters. He knew how to fly, fix and fight in them. He was even learning to be a back-up pilot for uncle Chris.
"She's not a pet I found Joy honey. We'll know more when she wakes up."
"She's been under for hours. There's nothing wrong with her. Just a few scrapes and bruises, and a mild case of exhaustion."
"In that case I recommend rest, c'mon honey; She a lot more fragile than we are, she should be okay by the time..." Dawn administered a mild sedative to her sleeping patient, "this wears off. C'mon, let's see what Corsair has found out about our sleeping guest."
"I still can't believe he prefers we call him Corsair to uncle Chris..." Joyce giggled, and Dawn who agreed, joined her.
In the corridor the two Summers women met up with Hepzibah, "What's so funny?" she asked mildly. She had moderated her reactions to the women. They were blood kin to her Corsair and not rivals for his affections. She had made her peace with them and as a result she was much richer emotionally for making that decision. They would have made fine members of the Mephitisoid race and they were also good for Corsair's stability.
"It's uncle Chris..." Dawn stopped herself and smiled at the cat/skunk lady who was sharing her uncle's bed, "sorry, sorry..." she giggled some more.
"While I agree Corsair could be funny from time to time...what set you off this time?" Corsair's kin had a habit of laughing in the face if danger and at life in general. She liked that, the family was made of sturdy stuff, but truly it was expected. They were her beloved's blood kin after all.
"It's just he keeps making that face every time I call him uncle Chris and forget to call him Corsair instead..." Dawn broke down and laughed at the last time her uncle's face did the thing with the nose and eye twitch.
Hepzibah and Joyce laughed with Dawn, they all knew the face the elder Summers woman was talking about.
"Mom, you're not doing that on purpose are you?" Joyce suspected foul play. Her mom wasn't totally like her dad, but she had her silly moments.
"Joyce Summers, how little you think of me?" Dawn huffed indignantly.
"Notice how she's not denying it." Joyce winked at Hepzibah.
"I've noticed. She's positively evil. It's why I like her." Hepzibah shared a laugh with Joyce while Dawn pretended to be insulted.
The three burst on the bridge laughing and giggling.
"What's so funny?" Corsair asked.
All three looked at him and lost it completely. Dawn fell down laughing so hard, while Joyce leaned on her husband for support.
Corsair did the eye, nose twitch thing at his lover's laughter, she almost never laughed.
All three girls were gone when say saw the nose twitch. "Was it something I said?" Corsair asked Gram.
"Yes." Gram was a man of few words. It was obvious to him that the women were laughing at the elder, so yes it was something he said. He supported his mate while she laughed and noted the elder's irrational facial twitches, "You should see to that..."
Corsair knew that they were ganging up on him, but he didn't know how to react. He would get back at them when they least expect it.
