A lover's talk
Episode 1: Hell is a four letter word
Location: Gallia and Kara's Shared Quarters
Timeline: During "Below Decks"
Kara walked in after Gallia. She sat down at the dining table.
Gallia sat down across from her, unsure what exactly to say, before getting the bottle of Scotch and saying, "Want a drink?"
Kara nodded. "Aye, I think we both need it right now."
Gallia poured them both two fingers and sat back down, "So, is there anythin' ya wanna tell me, Kara?"
Kara took a sip from the glass. "That I am sorry for not spending alot of time around you recently. Work has been kinda insane. Not just that, I also want you to know I love you. Is there anything in particular you wanted to ask? You've been acting like you've got a chip on your shoulder."
"Yeah, maybe, I don't know." Gallia answered, taking a deep pull of the smooth single malt, "Maybe I'm just lonely, jealous. I mean, if you're not with Lovejerk you're with that bastard Holt..." She leaned back and sighed, "It wasnae like this before, so I don't know, I just... dinnae want to see ya walk away from me, but my position in your life, it isnae secure anymore..."
Kara stared. "Not secure? Your position i nmy life? Honey, we're engaged. I won't be taking off with someone else. I'm sorry if i've made you jealous. Just relax, i'm with Holt because i was tutoring him. it's part of his rehabilitation. Lovejoy is a good guy, deep down i think he doesnae want trouble. He has grat ideas on how to bond the crew. I consider him a good friend, but nothing more than that Gallia. Ye need tae stop yer fussin lass before ya gi' yersel' an aneurism. "
"Ya probably right." Gallia nodded, draining her drink, "But that Holt's still an arse. Not wantin' an aneurism behind 'em though. He isnae worth that."
Kara sighed, standing up to move behind Gallia, palcing one hand onto each of her shoulders, gently rubbing them. "You've got nothin' ta fear my love. I ain't going anywhere, alright? I say we need some time together. A wee holiday maybe?" She asked innocently. "I think it'd be great to go back to Earth, Tay i think would love to see Paris. No?"
"Aye, but during winter." Gallia replied, "We cannae let her get too hot. Maybe we can go home for a couple days, too..."
"Your right, of course. Paris in winter is beautiful and to go home tae Scotland too. I'm sure my parents would love tae meet you and tay for proper. Of course, I'll have tae meet your family too." Kara was excited by the prospect.
"Aye, but I have tae warn ya, those people are nuts." Gallia laughed, leaning back to lay her head on Kara's chest, finally feeling somewhat secure for the first time since she met that bastard Lovejoy.
"Well, i'm nuts too. I'm sure we'll all get along like a house on fire. nae doot in ma mind love." Kara kissed the back of Gallia's head, wrapping her arms around her, to hold her close and enjoy the moment. "You're so cute, y'know that..." She whispered quietly.
"Aye." Gallia quickly agreed, adding in a conspiratorial whisper, "Didnae ya know that's how girls from nutty families hook ya? We getcha in by bein' so cute, then before ya know, BAM! Ya'r right stuck."
