This week, we return to my Star Trek: Enterprise fan fiction project, The IDIC Romance. I offer you installment #2 in my serialized flash story, “Mission Accomplished”. We begin where last week’s installment, “Playing Along” ended.
These nine sentences are rated PG-13 for suggestiveness and mild obscenities. Read at your own discretion.
Here’s the premise:
Trip has a datapadd. T’Pol has tea and smells like delicious trouble. They both have a job to do, and other ideas on how to pass the time. And that’s proving to be quite a distraction for the human half of this duo…
Oh, and we also learn that T’Pol has a newly developed opinion that wearing clothing when they’re alone together in her quarters is ‘illogical and inefficient’.
Trip wasn’t quite at the point where he could just peel down as soon as the door closed the way she did, but maybe tonight…
“It’s your own fault for being so damned sexy.”
“I fail to see the correlation.”
“Arguing wastes even more time.”
She sighed, and sipped. “Is there any further information?”
“That’s all of it. Why are you scowling?”
Will they stop arguing?
Will Trip strip?
Why is T’Pol scowling?
Will T’Pol’s sex appeal keep providing Trip with delightful distractions?
Will they ever complete this mission?
Come on back next week to find out more!
Although I’ll admit that I was a bit stymied at first, I had a lot of fun with this murder mystery prompt, which is part of the Story a Day September challenge.
And, of course, the obligatory disclaimer:
Trip, T’Pol, and Trek: None of these wonderful T-words are mine. Can I help it if these two unlikely lovers keep insisting I tell their stories? =)
