What did they do to my sh - OHI
Location: Damaged section, USS Langport
Timeline: Prior to the ship's return to the starbase
Hel was more than a little annoyed. All that work she and her team had put in to fixing the ship up, raising her from a zombie state to one resembling that of a proper Federation starship, and then 'they' go and get her heavily damaged. Hel was also, however, relieved and more than a little proud that the ship had not only held, but cut a swathe through the numerous, smaller ships that they had been attacked by. Annoyed and relieved, it was an interesting combination.
She diligently worked cataloguing the damage. Recording. Documenting. The last time she did this, the damage she was documenting was a fair sight worse. And there had been bodies. Dead ones. Oh the bodies. Though she was glad she didn't have to do a repeat of such a grim duty, the memory did weigh on her. She went about the duty of documenting almost on automated movements, lost in her own little universe, her own little musings.
Hel's piercing, startled shriek when someone snuck up behind her and pinched her sides carried through the corridors, followed by the clatter of her PADD which had gone flying.
"Gotcha!" Nirrti cackled.
"You ... ! You gave me a bloody heart attack!" Hel shouted, perhaps a little bit louder than she intended, trying to catch her breath as adrenaline coursed through her veins. She half hefted a hand, scowling. "I oughta smack you!"
"But you're not going to because I'm too cute." grinned Nirrti, bouncing on her feet.
"Yeah you're right." muttered Hel, finally calming down a little. "What're you doing here? I thought you had to repeat your last year? Are you just visiting?"
"Nope! I passed. 85th percentile. I wanted to surprise you, so I said I had to redo the year." the younger Samedi beamed.
"Well, consider me surprised. Gods ... Don't ever do that to me again, Nirrti." Hel sighed, then smirked and reached over to ruffle Nirrti's hair.
Nirrti giggled, then pulled Hel into a warm hug. "It's good to see you again, sis."
At this Hel could only heave a sigh and answer the hug, closing her eyes for a moment. "You too, sislet. Man has it been a rough few months."
