*Data sits in the bubble bath that Geordi has drawn for him. He gives Geordi a small smile as he splashes the bubbles around idly, but squirms in physical discomfort over...what the two of them did. Finally he gives a wince*
*sits on he floor next to the tub, regarding the android worriedly, and feeling guilty about what he talked Data into doing. He never wanted to hurt his friend..just wanted to love him*
*he puts a hand on Data's back and rubs absently, giving Data a warm smile in return..*
Hey....you doing alright?
*Data looks troubled*
I....I am very confused Geordi. I am unsure as to what I was expecting exactly....bu I am feeling discomfoirt in a variety of forms. Physically, I-I feel pain in my posterior. Nothing is damaged as far as I can tell, but it feels...*thinks of an accurate term*..tingly.
*lower lip trembles*
And as far as what we did..I do not know what to feel. I want to be friends..but I am not sure how to proceed after what we did. Do we remain friends? Do we become a couple? I do now know how to respond...and..and I am scared...
*Geordi feels a pang of guilt seeing Data as distressed as he is*
Oh god man, what did you do he looks like an adult but look at him..he's just a little kid...
Data I.....god Data...I never meant to hurt you... If you're still in pain, maybe I should run some diagnostics myself or something. I can do that from my quarters..it would be better than having someone in engineering wondering what the heck we're doing...
*smiles a little for a moment, then fades back into a worried frown*
*sighs* And well...what happens to us DEPENDS on us.
*lifts up Data's chin and stares into his wide amber eyes* I would love nothing more than to be your boyfriend Data. I love you very much. But at the same time I want YOU to be comfortable. The last thing I want to do is scare or upset you or make you cry.
*gently rubs his thumb across Data's cheek* What do I want? I want to hold you. I want to be with you, I want to never let you go. I want to protect you, care for you, and love you and share things with you. *kisses Data's forehead*
But I won't do any of those things without your okay. Understand? If we're in this, we're in it together.
So that said, Data, what do YOU want?
