“About T’Pol”: #Loveuary Day Eleven

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.

“About T’Pol”

“Thanks for inviting me, skipper. I brought dessert– cinnamon babka and single-malt scotch.” Trip grinned. “Have a bite and a quaff on me.”

“Thought you weren’t drinking anymore.” Jon was watching him like he was covered in warts. Guess I can’t blame him for wanting to be enlightened.

“Not tequila, anyway. And I’m just sipping.” He omitted the details of his treatment.

“Why do I get the idea you’re up to some kind of skulduggery, Trip? About the drinking, and about T’Pol?”

Trip took a deep breath. He was hogtied by Vulcan privacy, not to mention his own well-deserved shame.

How is Trip going to reassure Jon without saying anything he shouldn’t?
