Starfleet was her home her crew mates her family and friends. A vendor was waving at her, he yelled after her "Why not take off that hot uniform and climb into some of my form fitting swimwear?" She cracked a small smile and nodded no and continued to walk down the beach. The sound of the sand crunching under her boots was such an annoying sound she thought. She had been tasked this year with collecting Admiral Merano and bringing him back to service. As she stopped to scan the faces on the beach her mind wandered. She thought back to when she had first met the Admiral. It was his first away mission as a Starfleet Captain. He had manged to severe the Borg collective from her and many others. She remembered how she just stood there screaming. The Admiral rushed over to her assuring her everything would be fine, he took her off that planet, healed her and over time made her part of his crew. And she's been with him ever since.
She almost walked right past him he was asleep on some type of odd folding chair. His hair was shoulder length and blonde instead of its short high and tight black. He also had some type of weird facial growth that actually appeared as though he intended to have it that way. He was wearing some incredibly short silver swimwear that left very little to the imagination. She adjusted her uniform and approached she put herself between the sun and his face casting a shadow on him. She cleared her throat "Admiral Merano?" No response. She cleared her throat again raised her voice and said "Admiral Merano, sir?" For a moment she thought that she had made a mistake and perhaps this wasn't him. Although she tried not to use them, she still had Borg implants she used one to scan the sleeping party goer and the scan confirmed it was indeed him. She was about to call out to him again but than she remembered that handle that he preferred to be called. She scoffed it had been years since he had been a pilot, she couldn't understand why he continued to hang on to such childish things. She smacked her hands at her sides rolled he eyes and yelled out "Hey Lastline!!" He sat up immediately, look her up and down and stood. Trying to sound as authoritative as possible she said "Admiral Merano, sir you have been recalled to duty. Your leave has been canceled." He said nothing just leaned over picked up a beverage that had been partially buried in the sand and finished it off in one quick sip. "Its good to see you Five" he said with sleep still in his voice, "Did you enjoy your vacation?" "I did indeed sir, and thank you for asking." There was an uncomfortable silence and than he said "Aren't you going to ask me if I enjoyed my vacation?" She looked him up and down, "No sir, I can see you had a good time. Heart of Gold two to beam up."
