Mission: Home Sweet home.
Location: Spacedock
Timeline: Present


Kestra rolled over with a soft moan. Katja and the Captain could put the drinks away. Normally, she was pretty careful with how much she drank. Being a telepath, you learned early control, but the bartender started making Andorian Sunsets a weakness of hers. She had only had two, but then she met up with Jack. He had gotten a bottle of Draylaxian whiskey and dark chocolate truffles. Two of her other weaknesses.

Detangling herself from the sheets, Kes quietly dressed in a black tank top, black leggings, and running shoes. Her head was killing her, but that wasn't going to stop her from starting her day.

[Spacedock, Gym]

Kes did her normal stretches before she set out for a steady jog for a few miles. Running always helped her clear her head.

She finished off with some laps in the pool. Perfect morning, in her opinion. By this time in the morning, Jack was up, and she had promised to meet him for breakfast. She headed to the sonic showers and dressed in her uniform. Her hair she wrapped up in a bun as she walked out.

[Mess Hall]

Jack gave her a kiss as she sat down.
Kestra got her standard yogurt, fruit bowl, and coffee for breakfast while Jack ate his eggs, bacon, and hashbrowns with coffee.
Jack smiled suddenly. "I sent a copy of the Romulan language to your PADD. I am betting you will know it by the time you get back."

Kestra raised an eyebrow at him. How did he know about the mission? She hadn't said anything to him or Oadid about where the ship was headed. "Challeng accept," she smirked. She picked up languages fairly easily.

They didn't say much while they ate. Most mornings, they didn't. it was normal, just two people eating at the same time, but this morning seemed a little different to her. Like he wanted to say something or was waiting for her to say something. whatever it was just wasn't going to happen.

Giving her a kiss goodbye, Jack headed off to his post. Kes sat for a few more minutes. Jack hated goodbyes, so that was as close to one she was going to get.

Cleaning the table off, she headed back to the USS Montana.
