Another day, another... well, not dollar, but whatever. [Aug. 7th, 2007|03:07 pm]


[mood |boredbored]

*ten minutes 'til end of the day*

*nothing happened overnight, nothing interesting anyway... lots and lots of laundry to catch up on*

*Quartermaster only able to do half a shift, Bella pretty beat now, dead on her 5-inch heels feet*

*cracks open a bottle of vodka, one of Zio's "hidden" stash, knows where he keeps it all anyway, not really much room to hide anything in the office*

*sits on the desk and watches the clock...*

*makes her way down the corridor towards the Quartermaster's office...swipes at the uniform she's carrying*

Stupid burn marks...You'd think they could make these flame-retardant!

*glares at a couple of crewman that stare at her outburst*

*enters the Quartermaster's office and throws down the uniform on the counter*

*startled out of her reverie*

Ensign! You nearly gave me a heart attack.

*smiles meekly in greeting, trying to shove the vodka bottle behind a stack of PADDs on the desk*

*picks up the uniform and fingers the scorched area*

Um... wow. You really did a number on this, what happened? *blinks*

*eyes go wide*

*knew this Ensign was a bit of an... interesting person, but hasn't really had much contact, even in 4 plus years*

It's nothing to me. *flips hair over her shoulder, pouts a little* Just making conversation.

*inspects the damage a little more* Do you want a completely new uniform? Or would you like me to try and salvage this? *glances up* It'll be the same amount of work, so what ever you'd prefer.


Ma'am. *smiles, not exactly friendly*

Well, I'm not here to chit chat.

*sigh* Whatever. A new one, I guess.

*sniffs unceremoniously*

*not here to chit chat, either dammit, but is only courteous*

*besides, is tired, has sore feet, and just wants to get drunk and hang out, not deal with snotty pyromaniac ensigns*

*opens a drawer in the desk, rooting around for a spare requisition PADD*

Here... *thrusts it in Hale's direction* ... it'll take 5 to 7 business days to complete. Unless you give me a reason to be nice about it.

*stares at the PADD, then glares at Bella*

5 to 7 days?! That's unacceptable! Maybe you'd get more work done quicker, if you didn't sit around all shift drinking!

*smiles sweetly*

I assure you, Ensign Hale, I've only been drinking for... *glances at clock* ... about 15 minutes. That's only 2% of my total shift time. See? I'm still lucid enough to do simple math.

*crosses arms*

Yeah... ok, I don't have a lot going on this week.

*sighs* Ok, ok, fine; I can get it done by tomorrow. For a price.

*nonchalantly starts checking out nails, polish is starting to chip a little, would you look at that...*

*studies the other woman, twirling a strand of hair through her fingers*

Geez, what does she have that I could want? Anything?



*has nothing!*

Um... well, what do you have to offer? Smooth. Way to go.

*rolls her eyes*

You're the one who wanted to be paid, yet you don't know what?

Fine. *reaches into her pocket and pulls out first thing, tosses Bella the book of matches*

*fumbles with the... what the hell, matches?!!*

Uh, this isn't exactly what I have in mind, sweetheart.

*gingerly offers them back to Hale*

How about... how about giving me a little extra in the next transmissions to Earth? I have a few personal letters to send, more than my alloted memory space can handle.

*cocks her head to the side, biting her lip* Yeah, got more than a few things to explain to my brothers...

*snatches the matches back...what's wrong with matches? The cover's custom made!*

I suppose I could make arrangements. But the uniform'll definitely be ready by tomorrow?

*pulls hand back fast, like trying to feed a beaten animal, dealing with this one!*

Give me 24 hours, it'll be done.

*smiles* If not, I promise you can set my hair on fire.
