Preparations for the Big Day

Posted on Tue Mar 8th, 2022 @ 12:04am by Lieutenant JG Rianna Repatha & Commander Curtis Thibideaux

Mission: Prelude to War
Location: Various
Timeline: MD002 1820 hrs.

Lake Cataria was the most beautiful spot on Betazed. Rianna always went there to swim and just walk along the beaches. It was so quiet and just peaceful. True it was one of Betazed's tourist and resort spots, but to her it was like home. The water was crystal clear and just the right temp when you got in and dive in she did. It felt wonderful as she swam through the water. Watching the sun cresting on the early morning rise, the water took on a golden color as the sun crept over low lying clouds giving the whole panorama a golden purple with yellow and red hues around the sun as it rose. It was magnificent!

Finishing her morning swim, Rianna headed back to the resort to get ready to begin her busy day. She had a wedding to prepare for, there were still people who wanted to tour her engine room, and in the middle of all of this, she got wind of something that was going to be done with the Valiant, although she had her hopes it would be new warp nacelles to accommodate her push on the engines to her 9.98 speed which Rianna was working on. Regardless, she had plenty of work to do and she needed Curtis to help her with the planning so…….

=/\=Rianna to Curtis, I am coming back to the ship. Where are you at the moment and I pray you are not busy. We need to get this show on the road=/\=

Curtis glanced across the table at his new boss, Admiral Leihei who met his eyes then checked his chrono. "Well, Commander. With I think we can finish up the rest of this when we meet tomorrow. That didn't sound like your intended much cared what you were up with and with who. And far be it from me to get in the way of a bride and her wedding."

The Admiral's tone was light but Curtis said, "Aye aye, sir. Sorry sir. There's a lot going on and I'm guessing we're falling behind on the actual ceremony bit.."

Leihei held his hands up, deciding the Commander warranted a break. "It's alright, Curtis. Go get things straight. And give my best to Lieutenant Repatha."

Nodding, Curtis stood and gathered up a couple of PADD's and headed for the hatch. Touching his com-badge, he said =/\= It's alright Rianna. The Admiral understands. I'll beam back to Val in a few ticks.

Rianna heard him say Admiral and that sent up a red flag in her mind. Now was there something to be worried about or was it just a meeting of minds. She had to find out.

Their Quarters on Valiant

Once she finished changing and putting on a fresh uniform, she sat waiting for Curtis to arrive finally. She was still thinking of why he was with the Admiral. Something was up.

After checking in with the OD and bridge, Curtis made his way to his and Rianna's shared quarter. He stepped to her, giving her a kiss before straightening and rubbing at the back of his neck. "

"What's on the agenda?" Curtis asked as he began to slide out of his uniform tunic.

"Well, there are invites to go out. Then the question of wearing clothes or not. I refuse to go naked so I will be wearing a very loose sheet like thing, much like what they wore in the Roman era. Then the banquet food has to be ordered for the reception and just what will you wear, Rianna asked, giving him a hug and kiss.

"So, we're basically done," Curtis teased as he kicked his boots off and began changing his trousers out for an old pair of jeans and a T-shirt. "My family knows. We'll have to see how their schedule goes on whether they'll be able to show. As for clothing, I'll probably wear Fleet dress tropical uniform, I guess."

He slid into a seat on the couch, pulling her with him and slipped an arm around her shoulders. "You know, if we feed them that just means they'll stay around longer.." he half joked.

"It also means we will have will have more time with each other with free food," Rianna joked with him. Planting a well deserved kiss dead in the mouth deepening the kiss as passions began to over come the pair.

"Why'd you let me get all the way dressed if this is what you had in mind," Curtis asked with a smile against her lips as he wrapped his arms around her.

" silly boy......all the more fun to undress you myself"Rianna said giggling and squirming under him........
