::steps into mess, blinking at cacophony...had forgotten it could be so noisy in the morning::

::skirts a crewman with hands full, nodding in greeting::

I hope that's not all for you, U'Lanai. You're slow enough without your stomach twice filled.

...joking, joking.

::shrugs at scowl, moving on to destination...the serving counter::

::steps up when line empties, eying clearly preoccupied server::

A lot more work than you remembered, I take it?

Oh, don't worry, I've made it this far. And I'm in good hands.

We'll talk later, Dad.

::waits for last nod of acknowledgment to dim screen, pushing chair back and rising before melancholy can set in::

::raises brow at both secured door...a rarity...and unmistakably faux cheer in his tone::

I can return later if you prefer.

::meets querying blue eyes, finally catching the implied concern::

Oh, no, no. I've been waiting on you.

Actually, I just took advantage of the free time to call home.

::hitches brow higher, well aware that such contact is typically only the result of prolonged prodding on captainchakotay's part::

Astrometrics is fully functional.

I know.

It was more a...personal...call.

I was talking to my father.

I see.

::moves from stance just beyond door, circling desk to take in terminal::

Everything would appear to be intact, so am I to assume it went well?

It was a start, let's put it that way. And not a word to Linnis, I can't take ribbing from both of you.

::checks chronometer again, offering a cajoling grin::

Looks like we're just in time for lunch. You must be starving...and I hear Neelix won't be back behind the counter until dinner.

I'm aware. The Ensigns Delaney were busy comparing today's offerings to their mother's cooking.

They found it surprisingly on par.

::moves again, circling chair and coming to halt scarce inches from companion::

I see that my own efforts in the kitchen tonight will have to be doubled.

::laughs, maybe just a little warily::

You've got too much of a competitive streak, anyone ever tell you that?

No, didn't think so.

::crooks arm, relieved when she at least accepts it::

You can cook for me any time you like and I won't have trouble swallowing a single bite, but you shoudn't have to cook for me all the time. You're much too brilliant to be stuck in a kitchen. I don't know about elsewhere, though...

::shakes off what could be very distracting fantasy drift::

I should warn you, though, you might want to hold your nose...
