::clambers up last few steps of maintenance ladder, accepting the hand of a nearby engineer to crawl out::

::brushes off profuse apologies about downed lifts, using the pretense of needing a stretch to take a moment to look around...and then directly toward open ready room entrance::

::bites lip to hide smile, head cocking to take in indistinguishable but forceful mutterings from within::

::offers refit leader a sympathetic shoulder pat, carefully moving around tools and debris, eventually coming to rest just inside doorway::

::clears throat::

Oh, Captain?

::buries a sigh...there you have the counselor's opinion and the Starfleet officer's opinion, but as usual, Deanna's seems nowhere to be found::

::cracks a half-hearted smile anyhow, nodding toward jimmied door::

Maybe we should leave these people alone to put my ship back together, then.

You can share your other ideas with me back ho...back on Earth.

::reaches over to shut down terminal, taking one last look around before following her out::

Did you check in on the boys?

All three of them.

Things are fine in La Barre...though, apparently, Jean-Luc is heartbroken to think this will be the last visit he and Barin will have. By the time we get back, he'll be grown...grown!

::drops good-natured imitation of Picardesque outrage, own smile faltering momentarily::

::observes carefully...is that a chink?::

You know, I've been giving it some thought myself. They're pretty close.

::chooses not to say bonded by loss, even if it's true...mentoring the half Betazoid, half-Tavnian boy just might have been the only thing that saved Jean-Luc Picard's sanity after his wife's death, but it shouldn't have been because he had just lost his own mother::

We could leave Barin here. He'd be happy in La Barre.

::drops hand, head shaking in negation even before the suggestion is out::

No, Will.

I may not be the best example of a sister, but he's the only family I have left. I promised Mother I'd keep him close.

If we were talking about leaving him on Betazed, perhaps...Jeyal wouldn't stand a chance of taking him off planet. But Earth?

::discreetly rolls shoulders, releasing an insulted cough::

Believe it or not, we mere Earthlings aren't all bumbling idiots.

He would be with Captain Picard. I don't think Jeyal would stand a chance of getting near either of them.

::narrows eyes at him::

Don't try to guilt-trip me. Or logic me to death.

I just can't, Will.

::frowns, mulling over own warning::

I'd feel guilty being so far from him.

You'd miss him, because you love him, and you can't imagine not being able to mother-hen him.

::offers a real, challenging smile after throwing down that gauntlet::

It was just an idea. I doubt he'd go for it either, to be honest. He feels very protective of you as well, in his own way.

::doesn't deny the assurance...can't, really::

::protective...yes, that certainly does describe some of the emotions the teenager gives off::

::tilts head, another worry slipping in::

We'll be leaving Jean-Luc alone, for all intents and purposes.

Not entirely.

Enterprise is readying for a near Earth stretch, so Geordi will be around.

I'm sure Worf will find his way back, and with any luck, Wesley isn't disappearing again any time soon...

::pauses as an odd smile quirks companion's lips up::

That is, unless they have something to do with your ideas.

::folds hands primly behind back, putting on a face of the utmost innocence::

Wes mentioned an interest in reactivating his commission, but seemed a little nervous about finding a niche after so long. As his therapist...

::juts chin up at hoot of laughter, continuing::

I wouldn't mind keeping him close.

Final approval depends on Starfleet, of course. And you.

I'm sure I could find a broom closet on here somewhere...

::holds up hand to call the peace, grinning at her::

And I doubt he'll have a problem with Starfleet. He's Beverly Crusher's son.

That smacks of...what was the phrase you used? Hereditary entitlement?

True. But I do think Wesley has earned a position, regardless.

So has Tom Paris, apparently.

Though I think he more likely bumbled into responsibility than assumed it.

::pushes aside those thoughts, settling attention on the here and now and important::

Anything else I should know, Commander?
