Awesome stuff, Tish and Jespah


Trip knelt in front of the closet as he clutched the remains of an Easter basket, which had been shredded by a laser. With his free hand, Trip knocked softly.

“T’Mir?”

“Yes,” came a soft voice.

“What happened to your easter basket?”

“Broke it.”

“Honey, how is the Easter Bunny going to leave you candy now?”

The response was a fearful cry of “Good”. The door opened, and T’Mir’s eyes were wide as she grabbed the remnants of the basket, hiding them.

“Good?” asked her puzzled father.

T’Mir leaned forward. “We can’t let a giant, alien rabbit steal our eggs.”

Giant alien rabbits FTW!

Love the semi-sentient (yet polite) Sick Bay critters, too.

(lots of little kid drabbles lately, hmm....)

These have been very entertaining, everyone. This is a great thread to have active again.

Juggle

From the buffet, Trip absentmindedly picked up three oranges and began a rhythm of throwing them in the air and from hand to hand.

Malcolm gave this only a passing glance. He knew Trip was a proficient juggler, rarely missing.

T’Pol on the other hand had never seen this skill and stared at Trip with rapt attention. After watching for a while she moved to his side.

“I find this talent to be very arousing,” she softly whispered in his ear.

Malcolm’s head shot up in surprise when he heard the three oranges hit the floor. How odd, he mused.

Cough.

“Are you okay?”

“I am fine.”

“No, you’re not.”

Cough. “There was something in one of those Xindi spheres. Phlox missed it and everything.”

“That’s no good.”

“Don’t tell anybody I’m sick. I can’t let them down.” Cough.

“I won’t.” A hand was pressed to a forehead. “I’ll make you chicken soup. But you have to pay me.”

“Pay?” Cough.

“Yes,” said Lili, the sous-chef.

He checked his pockets. “Pay?” he repeated.

“Yes. You can pay me by smiling sometimes.”

“Oh. Here’s a down payment.” Tiny, crooked, closed-mouth, but it was still a smile.

“Thanks, Major.” Lili smiled back.

TRIP: Hold on. You never said anything about feet.
T'POL: Is that a problem?
TRIP: Well, for one thing, I haven't had a shower since this morning, and I know how sensitive that Vulcan nose of your can be.And I'm a little ticklish.Maybe more than a little.

Joint

Phlox left his quarters, having awakened with a ravishing hunger. His cheery good mornings were met with startled looks, choked replies, stunned silence

Entering Chef's kitchen, Phlox waved at the dumbfounded sous chef, making a beeline to the cinnamon rolls.

"Whoa, there buddy," Chef commanded, whipping off his long white jacket.

"I'm-a-starving," Phlox slurred, as Chef wrapped the jacket around the doctor's stark naked body.

"I think we need to revisit what I shared last week, Doc," sighed Chef, "those joints are for medicinal purposes only!"

Phlox giggled as they hurried back to his quarters.
