::glances down corridor each way, making sure no stray Ocampa are around::

It's really tedious, when you think about it. I've seen alien royalty with less second to second monitoring.

::satisfied with the all clear, reaches up to straighten hair, coaxing face into most brilliant, come and gimme a kiss, helmboy pout::

::presses chime, then lifts fist to beat door  twice for measure...these days, sometimes he just plays deaf::

::transfers gaze from padd stack A to padd stack B, weighing the evil each potentially contains::

::lingers on A::

Crew evaluations...what the hell am I supposed to do there? Oh, yes, Crewman Boylan has changed his hairstyle since I last saw him...not sure that point is up to regs, but I recommend we let it slide. You'd understand if Neelix ever came near your ears with a sharp object.

::shifts eyes to B...that's a whole other can of worms::

::jerks head up at banging from vicinity of door, swallowing crow of glee...barely::

Who is it?

You didn't recognize my trademark tap? I'm shocked, Commander, shocked.

She has a trademark tap? Wait, which one is that?

::gives one more pondering look to padds, finally deciding to take chances on the unseen evil::

::scrapes chair back from desk, rubbing kink out of neck en route to door::

::press button to open it, staring::

I do keep office hours, you know, Ensign.

::slaps him on shoulder, stepping merrily past::

And I'll be sure to take advantage of them sometime very soon. I've heard things about the seating in the XO's hole...

::spins around, wrinkling nose while trying to gauge his mood::

Tom. What's happened to you?! Don't tell me you keep a protocol stick up your...

::holds up a finger, slashing the remark::

I could name a person or two who could use a spanking with one.

...

Don't read into it.

::motions her to seat::

I hope like hell you brought me something besides that padd, because I've seen as many of those as I can stand for the night.

::shrugs, remembering cargo and holding it up despite his complaint::

Sorry. If you want anything else you'll have to override my replicator cap for the month. I wouldn't mind if you did, actually. There's a lot of month left, and well, Neelix's menu...

::leaves it, dropping the padd on the coffee table when companion makes no move to claim it::

I'm not enough?

::shakes head, offering a pained look in return for her own crestfallen mask::

It's late.

I'm not in the mood for games. If you need something, ask.

Replicator cap already? What the hell does she use, and for what?

Good Lord, someone's prickly.

::ignores seat offer, stepping closer to the pilot::

The padd contains Seven's ideas for a complete overhaul of Astrometrics. It doesn't need an overhaul. If it didn't point to overt humanity, I'd swear she's in an outright tizzy over her drone daddy and over-compensating in the self-distraction department. You might want to talk to her or something.

Otherwise, I was just following through on an earlier promise to catch up with you.

::lifts brows::

It's been a while.

::sighs::

I'd almost managed to forget about Seven and her blasted Borg issues.

::nods anyhow::

Fine. I'll pin her down tomorrow.

As for the other...can't it wait a little longer?

If you're going to sound that enthusiastic, why bother?

::shrugs, blowing off hurt feelings::

Your loss, helmboy. I was thinking we could go to the holodeck, put in a little quality Proton time...

Without your better wicked half and Buster? Or Constance?

::shakes head::

Not much of a Proton adventure there.

::rolls eyes, remember a certain blonde half-Ocampan's piss poor efforts at playing the timid damsel in distress::

I was thinking it might be more fun without them, honestly, but if you're that particular, we could try another program.

::grits teeth::

It's not a matter of program selection or company, Ensign, it's a matter of schedule and circumstance.

It's late. I have a shift in a few hours, and so do you, I believe.

::offers pointed look::

I think the first officer and astrometrics chair have better places to be than carousing on the holodeck.

You can take the fun out of anything when you feel like it, you know...Commander.

But I'm not giving up yet.

::twists around, moving to his abandoned desk and shuffling stacks::

It doesn't look like you were resting to me. What are these about?

Your imminent reprimand and demotion to Crewman?

I'm not kidding. Crew evaluations.

::savors guest's look of worried surprise a few seconds more than necessary, before letting her off the hook::

Too bad I already forwarded yours to Chakotay.

I think. Which one are you again?
