"Love and Friendship"

Setting: USS ANUBIS, Holodeck 2
Stardate: 63073.0215

Elliot smiled to himself as they lay there on the small island.

"So Mr. Thomas what are you thinking or dare I ask?" questioned Akira who also had a smile on her face.

Ensign Thomas moved in close to Ensign Mitshiba and their kisses smouldered and their bodies entwined, while they were embracing you could see they were letting themselves go.  ET slowly moved his right hand down Akira's back, gently rubbing his fingers again slowly over her soft rounded posterior, which made Aki gasp with anticipation of what was going to happen next.  Elliot stopped and cooed, "We have to stop."

Ensign Mitshiba looked at ET with exasperation then questioned, "Why must we?" with a sad expression on her face.

"Well we are in the middle of a Holodeck and it's not as if we have locked the door." Elliot exclaimed with a smile on his face.

"OK ET I think we should take a stroll perhaps to your quarters, at least we can lock the door there." Aki chuckled softly as she hugged him.

Ensign Thomas got to his feet and helped his attractive companion to her feet and stated "End Holodeck program".  Just as he had finished the words the surrounding disappeared to reveal an empty square room with one set of doors at the other end of the room.

"Lets go then." Coaxed Akira as she grabbed Elliot's hand and led him out of the holodeck. 

Setting: USS ANUBIS, Deck 9 Corridor
Stardate: 63073.0225

As they walked the corridors towards the turbo lift heading towards Ensign Thomas's quarters, ET stopped in his tracks and asked Aki, "Before we go back to my quarters, why don't we go for a drink in the Black Hole, its been a while since we have been in there."

"That sounds like a great idea, I'm not feeling tired myself even though we are suppose to be getting rest, I'm just so excited about us and the mission," commented Ensign Mitshiba happily.

Setting: USS ANUBIS, Deck 16, Black Hole Lounge
Stardate: 63073.0325

Elliot and Akira walked into the Black Hole and to their surprise most of the senior staff had gathered at one table.  The couple walked over to the table and ET happily chirped into the conversation, "Is this a private party or can anyone join in?"

"Yes, by all means," claimed Ensign Lopez then continued smiling at Ensign Mitshiba. "I guess you found who you were looking for."

Aki giggled and then chortled, "Yep, I did thanks Adriana."
