A Mirror Shattered #140, 141 - Reporting!

ON: <<USS Pegasus, Sickbay, Deck Six>>

Ryylar moved out of sickbay, satisfied with Doctor Floyd's care of Hannah and he walked over to the computer console, requesting the computer to tell him the location of Commander Petrova.

"Lieutenant Commander Kristiana Petrova is on the bridge." The computer told him. <tag> He nodded and moved out of sickbay and into the turbolift, taking it to the bridge.

She was sitting in her command chair, simply watching the viewscreen. She looked quiet lost in thought.

Stepping onto the bridge, he stood at attention.

"Commanderrrrrr Petrrrrrrova, can I ssssssspeak with you in prrrrrrrivate?" He asked her, no joy in his tone.

"Hm ?" She glanced over, and gave a nod. "Sure .. In the Captain's Readyroom, Warrant Officer." as she rose from her seat and started there, herself.

He nodded and walked over to the ready room, letting her enter first, showing deference to rank.

She turned to face him once inside, brows furrowed, looking at him. "What's this about, Ryylar ? Why the secrecy ?"

"We have a sssssssaboteurrrrrrr on boarrrrrrrd." He said with a nod.

".. A saboteur ?" She blinked a bit and nodded slowly. "Alright, I'm listening .. .. " <Tag> "I have been talking with Lieutenant Ssssssssulan to asssscccccccerrrrrrtain what dutiesssssss I ssssssshould take up to help fill the gap left by the losssss of our Ssssecurrrrrrity Chief and ssssssshe inforrrrrrrmed me that sssssssomeone may be tarrrrrrgeting Lieutenant O'Drrrrrrrisssssscoll'ssssss life. At the ssssssame time sssssshe mentioned in passssssing that you may be a thrrrrrreat to thissssss sssssssship, sssssso I didn't think anything of it." He said, beginning with his story as she began.

She blinked. "Me ? A threat to the ship ?" She couldn't believe it and shook her head a bit. ".. Anyways, what's this about an attempt on O'Driscoll's life ?"

"I didn't believe it wassssss ssssserrrrrrioussssss at all, due to the sssssourrrrrccccce you underrrrrrssssstand, and neitherrrrrr did O'Drrrrrrrissssscoll, but I'm neverrrrrr one to take chanccccccessssss like that... sssssso I decccccccided to follow herrrrrrr and sssssstay clossssssse. While we werrrrre in herrrrr officcccce, herrrrrrr dessssssk consssssssole exploded and I barrrrrrely managed to knock herrrrrrr out of the way." He said, blinking several times and shaking his head, holding his forehead for a moment.

She shook her head bit. ".. For the record, Warrant Officer .. Next time you hear rumors to that effect, contact me Immediately. .. Are you alright ?" She frowned now, worried, reaching a hand over to rest on his.

"Aye ma'--" He said, breaking off to shake his head once more.

"It'sssss worrrrrsssse though. We sssssusssspect that herrrr quarrrrterrrrsss had been sssssimilarrrrrly tamperrrrrred with, ssssso we --" He started, stopping as he held his head for a moment and took a deep breath or two, then continued.

"Sssssso we went back to my quarrrrrterrrrrssss wherrrrrre I wasssss going to have her wait while I rrrrrreporrrrrrted to you. But when I got herrrrrr ssssssome food to eat, it wassssss poisssssoned... sssssshe'sss in ssssssickbay now... with doctorrrrrr... ungh." He said, collapsing on his back, shivering and twisting.

She blinked at that. "Ryylar !" Quickly kneeling down next to him. "Ryylar, what's wrong ?" Then tapping her comm-badge =/\= Medical team to ready-room, ASAP ! =/\=

The carpet beneath Ryylar began taking on a dark reddish tinge as blood from several cuts in his back soaked through into the ready room floor.

She muttered. No time to wait for the medics to arrive here. =/\= Computer, two to beam directly to sickbay. =/\= she called out - a half a moment later, both Ryylar and her would dissipate in beams of blue and rematerialise in sickbay.
