Timeline: MD1 2000 hrs


With the last minute cancellation of the evening meal with her parents Isla had decided to top off her evening with a quick drink in the crew lounge. Making her way to ten forward she stepped inside, ordered herself a drink and then sat at a table looking out through the large viewing window. There was something astoundingly appealing about looking out at the stars, it was beauty incarnate and she couldn’t get enough of it.

Shanks, had just finished talking to the captain and fixing a stubborn issue in engineering. He headed to forward lounge to get a drink. He approached the bar and ordered a Betazoid Whiskey on fizzing ice. He like the vapors from the melting ice as he sipped his whiskey. He turned and noticed an attractive young woman sitting alone gazing at the stars.

He could not help it and mustered up the guts to mousy over to her. "What a sad sight this is, a fallen star gazing out to her lost siblings." Shanks stated as he approached behind her.

Isla couldn’t help but blush as she grinned at the comment. “Thank you for the compliment. Won’t you join me?” She motioned to the seats. “I’m Isla.”

"Glad to have the pleasure of such galactic beauty." Shanks replied. "I am Michael, the chief engineer. I would be very honored to join you." Shanks took a seat directly across from Isla. "So what is your specialty?"

“Actually at the moment it’s a double specialty, I’m Chief Counsellor and I’m also helping out in Ops while they’re low on staff.” Isla smiled warmly. “I guess that means we could end up working closely together.”

"I see, that must mean it could be a while before we are fully staffed." Shanks replied with a devilish grin. "So if I needed to talk about ship operations, I could end up getting counseled on it as well."

Isla grinned. “You could, it depends on what you feel you need to be counselled on. I’m sure we could find this to be... mutually beneficial.” She grinned a wry grin then sipped her drink.

Michael was enjoying this tongue in cheek talk and he was also getting a little hot under the collar as he had been physically inactive in certain realms of human activity for a little too long for his liking. Isla was a very attractive woman and the first he had seen in some time that actually stirred that dormant part of him.

"Well, maybe I should get back to my duties and see if we need to have some operational counselling done at a future appointed session, so to speak." Shanks stated as he took a very large gulp of his beverage.

“Going already?” Isla smiled. “Am I making you uncomfortable? Or just hot under the collar?” She grinned a wry grin. “You know I’m free all evening...” she left the comment open ended.

"Well it was getting hot under the waistband, but who am I to leave a beautiful young lass all alone with nothing to keep her occupied all evening." Shanks replied as he repositioned himself closer to her.

Isla grinned. “Hot under the waistband huh?” She gave him a wry look. “Maybe we could do something about that? I’d hate to waste a good evening.”

"Well, this just made the evening better than I anticipated." Shanks replied. oO I wonder what she is out to do, as after all her dad is my boss and I have a thing for bad girls going against their fathers. Oo Shanks thought to himself knowing she was part Betazoid and could likely sense his feelings and they were all for getting down and dirty for the pleasure of a beautiful lass.

Isla could feel Shanks emotions, smiling she sipped down more of her drink. “Maybe we should go to your quarters?” She smiled a wry smile.

Shanks was really feeling the urge to accept Isla's invitation to a pleasurable playtime. His quarters happened to be freshly cleaned so, why not take her to his bed and mount this beautiful lass for who knows what may come of it. "Sure I would enjoy more time with you." Shanks then gulped down his drink and offered his arm to the enchanting maiden.

“Wonderful” Isla finished her drink and stood up taking Shanks arm. “For what it’s worth... I don’t make a habit of picking up men I don’t know.”

"Well, good thing I introduced myself earlier thus evening and thus making it easy for you to pick up a man you know just not extremely well." Shanks said with a sort of giggle in his voice. "I know you are the Captain's daughter and a very beautiful young woman. I also know you should know I don't go back to my quarters with any ol' random women but I figured you are worth it."

“Why thank you” Isla grinned. She hadn’t been with anyone since she lost her previous love so this was a bold move for her.

Shanks then did a bit of karaoke that sort of fit the situation he was finding himself entering. He mimicked holding a microphone and started singing.

"I feel a hunger, it's a hunger that tries to keep a man awake at night. Are you the answer? I shouldn't wonder when I feel you with my appetite. With all the power you're releasing, it isn't safe to walk the ship's corridors alone. Anticipation is running through me, Let's find the key and turn this engine on I can feel you breathe, I can feel your heart beat faster. Take me home tonight I don't want to let you go 'til you see the light, Take me home tonight, Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang, "Be my little baby" I get frightened in all this darkness, I get nightmares I hate to sleep alone, I need some company, a guardian angel to keep me warm when the cold winds blow. I can feel you breathe, I can feel your heartbeat faster, Take me home tonight
I don't want to let you go 'til you see the light. Take me home tonight Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang, "Be my little baby" Be my little baby Just like Ronnie sang, just like Ronnie sang "Be my little baby, baby my darling"

I feel a hunger, it's a hunger take me home tonight, I don't want to let you go 'til you see the light, Take me home tonight, Listen honey, just like Ronnie sang, "Be my little baby" Take me home tonight I don't want to let you go 'til you see the light Take me home tonight Listen honey, just like Ronnie sang, "Be my little baby" Take me home tonight I don't want to let you go 'til you see the light Take me home tonight Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang, "Be my little baby" Take me home tonight I don't want to let you go 'til you see the light Take me home tonight."

Isla couldn’t help but giggle, she loved Shanks’ sense of humour. “You have a good singing voice there!” She grinned. “Ever thought of taking up a second career?”

"A singing career is not in the books for me, I only sing when I am courting or drunk on pheromones or hormones," Shanks replied.

Stepping into the turbolift Isla stood resisting the temptation to throw herself at Shanks, she liked him and she didn’t want to appear too pushy.

"So you are holding back, you cant hide obvious feelings from a Betazoid," Shanks added and he picked her up into his arms and initiated a passionate kiss.

Isla wrapped her arms around Shanks’ neck and returned his kiss with equal passion. She allowed her mental barriers to drop allowing him access to her thoughts and feelings. You're not the only Betazoid you know.

You are so appealing to my psyche on so many levels. I must have you in such a way that the animals know best. Mike thought to Isla. I can't help but feel arousal from you and I hope you will still speak to me in the morning. Now he just hoped they could make it to his quarters without getting to randy in the corridors on the way.

Oh I will speak to you in the morning. I just hope you’ll enjoy tonight as much as I know I will Isla grinned. As the lift came to a halt she was all too ready to head for Michael’s quarters.

Mike merely lifted Isla up and carried her the rest of the way to his quarters. Upon entering he headed directly for the bed and places the young woman down and preceded to undress himself while never taking his eyes off of Isla. You have no idea how I do hope we enjoy this night. "Computer lock doors and place do not disturb notification in effect until further notice." Shanks stated to the computer to secure his quarters and also trigger the automatic settings for a romantic atmosphere which meant some music and lighting effects were now activated.

What woman couldn’t enjoy a night with you Isla smiled as she longingly watched Michael undress. Her excitement was plain to see in how rapid breathing had become.

You are enjoying this aren't you? Mike stated as he was down to just his boxers. "Now for me to undress you for real and not just in my mind." Mike then leaned over and preceded to unzip the blouse Isla was wearing.

Let’s just say I’m all yours Isla smiled as she let Mike continue, she was looking forward to this night of passion and nothing was going to get in the way.

Mike slid off Isla's blouse and...

The night moved onward and the the heartbeats were intense and the temperature got very high as the environmental controls attempted to keep the room cool as it promotes better sleep. However, not much sleep would be happening for either of the two humanoids in these quarters tonight.
