Title: Red Alert! Part Two
Setting: USS Eagle
Time: During the attack by the Orions
Location: Ensign Petrescu's quarters
When the intruders
vanished, Leah's immediate thought was that it had to be a trick. Of course,
if they could be invisible at will why not attack that way in the first place?
So she lowered her phaser. "Anybody hurt?"
shakily, "Is it safe?"
"I think so,
everyone OK?" Leah answered.
the children in the kitchen to stay put again. She then peered very carefully
out to assess the situation.
had happened yet. They must have left. Leah tucked the phaser away. "It's
OK. They left." She put on a reassuring smile, "Come out already."
stepped out. "Thank you," she said. "My name is Chalandra. I think we met
before? Yes?" she asked. As she spoke one disobedient child from the kitchen
and another from the bedroom peered out.
Leah shrugged off the thank you. She did recall the woman, even though they
were little more than acquaintances. They had met at a reception party a
while back. "Yeah, I'm Leah Richards."
shoulder Leah noticed a pair of kids peeking out from the kitchen. "All of
you OK back there?" From the screaming before it sure had sounded like there
were a bunch of kids, but maybe kids were just noisier than she thought.
Leah had very little experience with children.
of the two peered out further, her face all smudged in something red. She
grinned and waved, having taking advantage of the distraction of her mother
to steal some strawberry jam.
a smile at the kid with the sticky face. She could recall doing similar things
when her mother's back was turned; although it usually involved making faces
or sneaking out.
A hand and arm belonging to a taller
child reached out of the kitchen and grabbed the younger one's head and tried
to push it back in the kitchen. Then the head belonging to the hand appeared
as the older child stole a long glance out as she reigned in the younger
one. Then they both ducked out of site quickly.
kids were still in one piece, Leah decided, so she turned her full attention
back to Chalandra. She hoped to wrap this up quickly and get back to Bob
and the rest of the robots. She had to find someway to keep the little ones
safely stowed out of sight before she could put Bob and his wife into stasis
as Unstoffe had ordered. That and keep the little beasties from being discovered
by Hanson, assuming he returned to retrieve his pizza.
"Are you sure those dreadful men are
gone?" Chalandra asked visibly upset.
"Yes. It looked like they beamed out.
Probably off the ship entirely." Otherwise, Leah assumed somebody would still
be shooting out in the corridor but it didn't sound like it.
"Good," she said but she didn't look
relieved. "What happened?" she asked.
All Leah knew was that there had been
intruders on the ship and that seemed to have vanished. She hadn't been on
the bridge at all. "I don't really know," she answered. She wasn't particularly
concerned either. The ship was still in one piece, so Unstoffe and the others
clearly had handled it.
"How many were there? Two here were
in this room," Chalandra asked. Leah shrugged. "Look - I don't have a lot
of information for you. I only saw the two here." There had to have been
a couple more in the corridor though, judging from the sounds of phaser fire
she had followed to this room.
The mother of four looked disappointed
and there was something much more weighty on her mind. It showed on her face
as she grew more worried. "The Captain said he would try and keep us safe
here. I need to speak with him," she asked.
"I don't think he's in a position to
talk to visitors yet. He was in Sickbay last I knew. What's got you so worried?"
Leah left off any mention of how poorly the man had been doing, no need to
add to Chalandra's concern.
Chalandra wasn't comfortable answering
all of what had her so upset. She paused, "I am worried we won't make it.
I didn't want to transfer to the other ship because I thought it would be
safer here," she replied. That was most of the truth but not all.
