Pandora's Box #57-58: "Freudian black lace slip..."

ON: <<USS Pegasus, Bellerophon's Den>>

Returning from the incident in the turbolift, Ryylar wasn't feeling at all well. Drowsy, sluggish, and not his usual feline self, he shook his head to try and clear whatever it was that seemed to be affecting his head.

" 'tention on deck !" He heard a strict, loud and powerful female voice behind him. "There will be no slacking when I'm around, or I'll have to take you to your quarters and .. 'punish' you." Kristiana added with a grin.

He grinned broadly and snapped to attention, saluting.

"Punissssh me all you like Commanderrrrr, but I will neverrrrrr ssssubmit." He said with a playful grin through his salute.

She smiled at him and stepped closer .. then frowned a bit. "Are you ok ? You don't look so good.Like you got down with a bug or something."

"Jussssst ssssssome weirrrrrd happeningssssss. Don't worrrrrrry I'll be fine." He said with a smile, pulling her into his his arms as he gently kissed her lips.

She blinked a bit, not really having expected that - hesitated a moment, she still had trouble imagining him as her boyfriend, but eventually melted in his arms and returned the kiss, loosely wrapping her arms around him .. After the kiss she'd smile softly at him "A girl could get used to this. A furball of her very own."

"A furrrrrball could get usssssed to having ssssssuch a beautiful woman in hisssss arrrrrmsssss and hisssss bed everrrrrry night." He said, his eyes widening as he said the last part. He had only been thinking it, he hadn't meant to actually say it.

Fortunately for him, that fact went straight over her head. She nuzzled him softly before replying "I don't think we're ready for that, yet, Ryylar .. You have to be patient with me."

"I know, but the rrrrrewarrrrrd will be well worrrrrth the wait." He said. He still shook his head as he held her close and wondered at his lack of inhibitions a moment ago. Though having Kristiana Petrova curled up in his arms was always a good thing.

She'd place a gentle kiss on his chin and trace her fingertips through his fur. "Mmmm you got that right." She replied with a grin. "I'll have to wear my special black laced playsuit when we finally - oh my GOD I didn't say that out loud !" Eyes wide as she jumped back and just stared at him.

He couldn't help the idiot grin on his face as his eyes widened in surprise.

"It'sssss happening to both of usssss. That sssscccciencccce officcccerrrrrr.... Sssshe wasssss having the ssssame prrrrroblem. Sssshe went to sssssickbay!" Ryylar said, looking at Kris.

She cursed and shook her head a bit "You're not making any sense, what problem, what did she have that she had to go to sickbay for ?"

"She came in herrrrre and ssssstarrrrted ssssaying thingsssss like she wanted me to come to herrrr quarrrrrterrrrrsss and 'play with herrrr yarrrrn'." He said.

Eyes narrowed at that "Did she now. I'll have to find that trollop and toss her furry ass into a torpedo casing and launch her into the - you're right, this IS a problem." As she groaned, closing her eyes, rubbing her temples.

"Sssssee what I mean Krrrrrissss? Not that sssshe wassssn't attrrrrractive orrrrr anything, but I love you Krrrrrissss." He said, shaking his head as well.

"I like you too, Ryylar - I don't know if I love you, yet, but - " She'd heave a deep sigh, muttering quietly. "We really need to find a cure for this."

"Yesssss we do, beforrrrre we both hurrrrt morrrrre people by sssssaying thingssss that sssshould be left unsaid." He said with a nod.

".. Atleast we can both be assured that the other one is always telling the truth .. " She'd tell him, shaking her head softly. "I'm off to sickbay and I suggest you come, too." as she turned and headed off.

"I think that'ssss the besssst idea ssssinccce you ssssuggesssted that black lacccced playssssuit." He said, following his statement with an audible groan as they both walked out of the lounge to head to sickbay.
