::snatches megandelaney's napkin, dabbing at cheek angrily::

Good lord, nothing Mama ever said sank in, did it, you nim...

::checks self::

She is all I've got these days.

::wads napkin and throws it down, waving hand in airy greeting as ahni_jetal and celes_tal approach::

Finally, adults.

::eyes Bajoran doubtfully::

Maybe I was day-dreaming, but I thought you were happy earlier. For once.

Oh, uncle.

::steeples hands::

And then, Celes, I got a comm from the Alpha Quadrant. Note...not home. Not my parents...

::ignores twin's our insert::

...not even my old boyfriend who appears to still be besotted, poor louse...

Just some reporter from the Fed News Agency.

::loses own focus for a moment, nearly losing hot roll to floor as well::

Wait...what?

You got an interview request? Starfleet isn't filtering those?

Apparently this guy is really smooth. Or has connections. No telling.

::tap table with index finger::

The point is, there wouldn't be a reason for Starfleet to worry anyhow. He didn't even want to talk about my...okay, nimrod, our...experiences out here.

Didn't care!

::sighs::

Apparently our parents made some super, amazing breakthrough with warp technology and everyone back in the AQ just loves them.

The reporter wanted a soundbyte of our thoughts on the matter.

Paris. Are we noticing any commonalities here?

Well...

They are identical, but I have to say, Megan is looking better at the moment.

::coughs when a frown is offered::

All right, all right. I'm on it. But you're the back-up.

::bolsters courage, making way over, stopping beside nearest cluster of spectators::

Ladies? Fill me in?

::flashes megandelaney apologetic look, before jabbing thumb in direction of her twin::

To be frank? Jenny needs help. If you know what I mean.

::arches both brows in surprise::

Really, you think so too? I mean, I was hesitant to be the first to say, all things considered...

Troi is going to love me for this one.

...right. Thanks, Ahni.

::squeezes other Delaney's arm, moving past and clearing throat::

Ensign Delaney...I think there's a seat waiting for you in the Captain's office. He's crazy if he thinks I'm planning on fielding her.

You other two...my office. Pronto.

Most people would be gratified to have been spared the trouble.

::lifts own brow, passing captainchakotay and his faint smile::

::loses own near door, taking in annikahansen, nearly hidden by potted plant by counter::

Hmm. Wonder how muchshe heard.
