Mission: New Horizon
Location: XO's quarters

Khelev's big arms moved around Mercia the moment they were alone and he pulled her in close to him. He knew he had to be gentle with her, as she was still tender but she was already on her feet and to him it was a far better improvement. He gave her a big kiss before he pulled back and grinned at her. "I think this is the first time I've been happy in a very long time."

Mercia shifted a bit, still a bit wobbly, but determined to keep on her feet. She looked up a him, "I can't imagine how you lived so long nearly alone." she said. "Its good to see you slightly less grumpy than when I woke up. I hope things can keep going in the right direction." she said as she leaned against him. "I don't want to stand long." she told him.

"Of course," Khelev answered her, giving her cheek a kiss before he scooped her up and gave her a big grin. "Where would you like me to carry you my beautiful Merci?"

She laughed as she hugged around his neck as he held her. "It's not like there are many spaces." she said. "The place is not very big. The couch is fine." she said. She ran one finger along one of his antenni. "Did you ever come and look in on our pods?" she asked him.

Khelev's antenna turned inwards towards each other and he nodded slowly. "All the time. I'd sit and just talk to the both of you... I miss Molly, missed you like crazy. I wanted you both back, you're my family."

"What about Tali?" she smirked. "You miss crazy me too?" she wondered teasingly.

"She's still part of my family, in a little more of an odd way," Khelev chuckled. "I don't think she's alive anymore either and if she is she's quite old."

"Except that she's in a pod back on the Gladiator, close to Molli." she said. He sat on the couch and settled her on his lap, which she was rather happy about. "So what did you say to me when I was in a pod?" she smirked.

"Why do you need to know?" Khelev asked her, with a smirk. "I didn't think she was put on ice, I guess I missed that. I think I need to spend this evening telling you how happy I am you're back, not about what I said to you when you were a Popsicle."

Mercia made a face, "Oh no no. I want to know what secrets you spilled that I didn't hear because I was frozen." she said was she fiddled with one of his his antenna.

Khelev let out a happy sigh, caressing an Andorian's antenna was very intimate. "You really think you can get me to spill my secrets? I've been trained to resist all forms of torture."

Mercia giggled as she watched his eyes and the way he reacted to her touch. "Oh but you always fall for my charms." she said. "So what things did you whisper to me? What things were you dying to say?"

Khelev ran one of his hands down over her side and flashed her a smile, "They're easy to fall for, the whole sexy assassin thing really does it for me. If you really must know, most of what I said was about how you needed to get better and how I couldn't do this without you. Better?"

Mercia sobered slightly, "Oh you're a ridiculous sap." she said poking his side. "You can so do this without me! I mean you have Molli still." she said. "Didn't have any juicy gossip you told me that I don't remember? Did you see the twin rats doing anything weird? What shenanigans did you get in to? I want to know what I missed!"

"Mel sorta went bonkers for a while and most of what we did was trying to get enough resources to get the Gladiator up and running again. It was a fight to get enough stuff together to make the trip to the island," Khelev answered her. "Get you back on your feet."

She wiggled her feet and looked down at them, as she danced them a bit in the air. "I'm almost there." she said. She ran her fingers along the side of his face and then back up to his attena knowing how much he enjoyed her toying with them. It was hot to andorians. She figured it was close to a nibble on the neck to her, which was always her undoing. "As hard as it was to go to sleep, knowing you were awake was the only way I could bring myself to do it, excruciating pain of a broken back or not. I hope you realize how significant that is. David.... Vanora... Admiral Grayson... not even Lyla could have convinced me that going to sleep until I could be healed was the best move."

"But you're awake now, your back is fixed and you're still hot as a blue star baby," Khelev grinned, the hottest stars burned blue. There was a pick up line in all of that, but he didn't feel like he needed them anymore. He let out a breath as she played with his antenna. "The docs did good, we'll have you back to fighting prowess in no time."

Mercia laughed at that, "Oh you bet, and then I'll resume kicking your ass in the ring." she told him, "You haven't broken my arm in a ring fight in years and I know you haven't been holding back." she smirked.

"You're very good, you were trained well. I just taught you how to fight with your heart, not just your fists," Khelev chuckled softly, before he leaned down and kissed her lips softly. "What do you say we head for bed and I keep you up most of the night? It's been a while since we've had one of those kinds of nights."

"Just make sure I can walk in to the room tomorrow for the big meeting." she grinned, "Bring it on...."
