Mushy Pulp

Posted on Sun Jan 13th, 2013 @ 2:17pm by Commander Karsel`lyn Lylyl-Llytherraias & Lieutenant Commander Azumi Morganna

Mission: Rebirth
Location: Sickbay
Timeline: BACKPOST: Following the Romulan Assault

Lyn sat and waited patiently in the waiting room of the expansive sickbay.

She wasn't waiting on anyone but a doctor. Lyn was here as a patient, not a visitor. The severe beating she'd suffered at the hands of the Romulan and Reman invaders may even somehow scar her for life, though she was sure that Commander Morgan was capable of fixing any scars. There were just that many more severely injured that she had to wait her turn.

After about an hour of waiting, she got impatient and rose to her feet. Stepping into the main sickbay, she was greeted by controlled chaos. Off to a side rested a familiar face: Azumi Morganna.

Sidling through the perpetually moving mass of humanoids, Lyn made her way across sickbay, until she stopped next to Azumi's biobed.

Reaching down with her functional hand, she touched the woman's pale face, brushing hair aside. Leaning against the biobed, she gently cradled the woman's face, and spoke soft enough it wouldn't be heard by anyone but Azumi, "I know. I know that you and Mei have some kind of crazy connection, Zumi. I'm here to take care of you, just let me know."

Azumi's eyelids fluttered open, "Lyn..?" She whispered, confused. "What happened to you?"

Lyn's lips turned up in a smile, "Hi there, Zumi." Still smiling, she leaned down and kissed the woman's forehead, "I was in the shuttlebay when the fracas started. I'm not moving terribly quick right now, and got caught by some Remans. The Admiral had forcefields erected around the deck, and the Remans decided to get me to let them through. I don't have that kind of access, so they... err... interrogated me to get access codes I don't have."

"I'd ask what happened to you, but I know you can't tell me, not yet anyway," Lyn frowned. "Mei isn't aboard. Command gave her a temporary command for some rough combat mission, and we've been out of contact for awhile. I know that you two have some kind of connection, something intimate and embarrassing for her... I can see it in her whenever you're around."

"So... you mean a lot to her. That means worlds to me, not to mention you're my shipmate, and you're cute. So I want to make sure you get taken care of," Lyn pushed up to sit on the edge of the biobed. "You don't mind, do you?"

"Not at all," Azumi smiled weakly. "What are Remans doing on board?" She frowned.

"I'm not sure, yet," Lyn frowned. "There was a transporter enhancer built into your shuttle. They used that to beam through our shields and apparently to take the ship."

Azumi's head spun and she lay back down onto the bed. "Always a crises." She whispered.

Lyn just smiled faintly, before laying down on the biobed next to Zumi, draping her good arm over the woman's waist. Her voice tired, Lyn nuzzled up against the taller woman, "You're pretty snuggly, Zumi."

"I guess being beaten into a mushy pulp has its advantages." Azumi quipped. "Are you ok Lyn? Your arm...."

Lyn smiled at Azumi's humor, "Traffic accident, darling. Was on patrol out of Starbase... umm... Starbase... damn, can't remember which. Anyways, the shithead Flight Control officer made my squad change course, right into the path of an incoming runabout."

"Could be worse," Lyn yawned. "My gunner lost his arm to it. I almost lost mine, but thankfully didn't."

Azumi sat silent, her recent trauma reflecting in the pools of her eyes.

"So what is it between you and my lovely MeiMei?" Lyn asked, reaching up with the good hand to touch her friend's face, tracing the edge of her jaw with a fingertip. "You don't have to worry about me getting mad or anything. I'm not a jealous woman, at all."

'Zumi shook herself back to the present, "I... I haven't seen her... is she aboard?" She asked.

Lyn shook her head slowly, looking mournful, "No, hun. Command gave her a temporary command for some classified combat mission. I haven't been in contact with her since she left Earth. Spent awhile with her family both with her and after she left, until they recalled me."

"I'll try and take good care of you, Zumi," Lyn said softly. "It's what a friend would do, right?"

Lyn didn't wait for a response, pulled herself closer to the Engineer, kissed her cheek and rested her head on the woman's shoulder. She would take care of Azumi Morganna, one way or another.
