Location: USS-Thunderchild

Me'L walked into her office a little bit upset,as she waited for her #1 to Arrive. She wanted to know what was on his mind."Explain yourself Commander."Me'L said sternly.

Doug followed the CO into her ready room, all the while harboring a sneaking suspicion that he knew what it was that she wanted to talk to him about. He figured she had caught one of the appraising looks he had given her. Well, he would just have to play dumb and not admit to anything - at least not right now anyway. After all, what could he say? "I've been checking you out because I want to jump you and rock your world?" He had an idea THAT would go over about as wwell as a turd in the punch bowl.

So, after hearing her statement, he simply said "Explain myself about what, Captain?"

Me'L was mad,"you heard me Commander,what was your strange look at me?" Me'l glared."We have no time for hanky panky." Me'l said not happy by simple Bullshit when the ship has a distress call to go to.

"I wasn't aware that I gave you a strange look and as for hanky panky I'm quite sure I don't know what you're talking about," Roberts said. The last part was obviously a lie because he DID know what she was talking about. But he knew that to admit it would be the worst possible thing he could do at this time. He hesitated a moment then continued. "Captain, all I can say is I am who I am and I cannot change that. If I don't measure up to what you think a first officer should be then perhaps you would be wise to seek someone who does." He studied her in silence, wondering if he had just ended his career in Starfleet.

Me'L looked at her #1,"Oh I'm not getting rid of you your the best I got and no one can replace you, I'm just saying keep your eyes at the mission at hand." Me'L said to him. "Now if you have a problem with me, and or the mission please tell me now,I would like to know?" Me'l said being quite concerned, and worried for her #1

"Believe me, I have no problem with you," Doug said with a grin. "And not only am I the best you've got, I'm the ONLY one you've got." His expression then turned serious. "But to be honest I have to wonder if you have a problem with me." He held his gaze level on her as he waited for her answer.

Me'L looked at her #1,"I have no problem with you why would I?" she said in Worry."I just want to make sure the 2 of us are on the same track while wondering bout this away mission, thats all."Me'l said in concern.

"As far as I can tell we're on the same page," Roberts said. The thought that ran through his mind was that his hope was that not only were they on the same page, but if all went according to his plan, they would hopefully end up in the same bed, but he wisely kept that thought to himself. To her he added "How many fighters can we bring to this party? Are they all flight-ready?"

Me'L stood up from her chair,"Oh I bet those fighters are gonna be ready we can count on that."me'l smiled to her #1."Were gonna be ready for anything or anyone that gets in our way." me'l said with a grin.

"Well if you don't mind I think I'll take a walk to the hangar bay and have a look-see for myself" Doug said as he stood up as well. "Y'know - just to be sure?"

Me'l looked at him,"Good Idea go ahead," Me'l grinned at her #1, as she stood up as well.
