"Computer begin recording. Since being injured during the re-taking of the Elysium, I have been unable to fully engage in any activity. What I thought to be a small injury has turned out to be something more serious, but the CMO hasn't fully explained what. I've seem Gary in passing but as the De facto Captain of the Eclipse, I guess he's busy. I was hoping to be transferred back to Elysium, but it's not happened as yet". She looked out of the window as she spoke, her mind not really knowing how to process her situation.
"Two new security people have arrived, that's good because if I leave they'll be able to take over. As for Second Officer, if I'm asked I will put Liselle forwards. I don't think Gary wants to admit that possibility could happen, I'm a little more realistic. I've already started to pack what little I have here, and have asked for boxes to be delivered to my cabin aboard the Elysium. When the time comes to go, I'll be ready. I may not be willing, but I will leave when the time comes". She took a deep breath and swallowed hard to stop crying, but the tears bubbled up in her eyes.
"Who would have known a year ago that Gary and I would become a couple, I hated that guy when I first arrived. I didn't know how to take Liselle, or her relationship with Gary. But now truth to tell, if I go I know he won't be alone. Liselle will look after him, I'll ask her if I have to". She stopped and took another deep breath, but she found continuing a struggle. "Computer, save and place in my personal logs".
