Solace Granted:#Loveuary Day Nine

Ritu from But I Smile Anyway created the #Loveuary blog hop, which feels like a perfect time to explore the next three chapters of my Star Trek: Enterprise TnT fan fiction story, Love and Loss – a hundred words at a time.

I’m using word prompts for each day, randomly gathered. Prompt words appear in bold, and today’s contributors are credited at the end of the post.

One more thing: Standard disclaimer applies. I don’t own these characters or the world they inhabit. They just like whispering and shouting stories into my brain, which I share with you freely, as an act of love.

Solace Granted

“Here you are, Doctor – “

Phlox smiled as Shran guided T’Pol into the bungalow. The riot of her impulsive reactivity was evidenced by his bruised jaw and drooping antennae. But his embrace was forgiving as she sheltered against his chest, eyes closed. She couldn’t yet face her inability to eradicate her pain. She clung to her lifeline.

“Easy, there, Angelhair,” Shran crooned, stroking silky strands. “I’ll stay as long as you need me.”

There was a human word that fit. T’Pol was verklempt, defenseless against the damage done, and the solace granted.

“It may still be some time, Commander.”

How long will Shran need to stay with T’Pol – and why does she need him?
