Adria walked into the mess hall, and winked at Brendan. "You have outdone yourself, baby!" Adria said, with an approving look and an appetite to match. She was eager to meet up with Brendan. It had been a pretty mundane day for her. She needed to see her man.
“I know there are times you eat at your desk,” Brendan said with a smile. “And don’t get to enjoy your food so I made your favorites.”
"I am working on that, did I mention how grateful I am to you. And how grateful the crew is too. Replicated food sucks." Adria said, with a big grin. She hope he believed her, she was very grateful to him. And so was the crew. Being the Chef on a ship, was a vital position in her eyes. And not just because she was dating him.
“I am happy to hear that,” Brendan grinned. “It is always my hope when I prepare meals that they are well received.”
"I have yet to hear a single complaint, if anything people want more of your food, not less of it." Adria said, with a big grin. She desperately wanted to kiss those delicate lips of his. For the moment though, she was holding back her emotions and hormones.
Brendan thought maybe he should have planned this for her private dining room because he was having a hard time keeping his hands to himself. He smiled at her. “I am just happy to be here with you.”!
"What time are you off my love?" Adria said, and reminding him he was still working. Though with that said, she purposely waited til after 1800 hours to come and see him. She hoped he could sneak off to join her.
“As soon as we finish eating,” Brendan said with a smile. “I arranged for a clean up crew so that we could have some time together.”
"My charming hero." Adria said, as she started to walk her tray out in the main lobby. She took a small two seater. "I feel like dining in the presence of the crew the Captain's mess is a little to isolated for my liking." Adria explained.
“That is fine,” Brendan replied easily. He knew she needed to be seen by the crew and to be among them. It was important for morale.
"Will it ruin your popularity hanging out with the top brass?" Adria said, with a grin on her face, as she started to put her tray down on the table. She meant that more playfully, she had a feeling he would know that as well.
“Not at all,” Brendan grinned in return. “I am sure they all wonder what I have done to be this lucky.”
"I think they all know, being a civilian, made you a shoe in." Adria suggested in a teasing voice. She meant it playfully, not vindictively.
Branden grinned. “I do have the advantage here.” He didn’t mind at all, he liked where their relationship seemed to be headed.
Adria grinned at his response. "I only have my eyes locked on you baby." She said, with a loving grin. She completed the line, and started to head to the table.
Brendan followed behind her, knowing he had a wide smile on his face. He was a lucky man and he knew it. “I am glad, because I only have mine on you,”
"Admiring the view?" Adria asked, as she started to walk to the table. "And yes, this lady is all for you baby." Adria said, with a warm smile.
“I am,” Brendan admitted. “And I like what I see...very much.” He loved how she was comfortable enough to say what she felt.
"Sit down." Adria said, as she followed suit. Then she went on. "Thanks for being able to have dinner with me." Adria said, to him.
Brendan sat down and smiled at her. “I wasn’t missing this for anything. I was happy you invited me.”
"Why wouldn't I, I love spending time with you." Adria said, with a big grin.
Brendan felt warm inside at her words. “I love spending time with you as well, only you.”
"So do you have any plans later tonight?" Adria asked, as she dug into the meatloaf. As always, it was delicious.
“I am all yours,” Branden said with a smile. “I left my evening open.”
"You are allowed to make plans without me, I am just putting that out there." Adria said, thinking it was sweet. But she wanted him to have some him time too.
“I do other things,” Brendan said with a smile. “I played poker with some of the crew just the other night.”
"Well thats a start." Adria said, with a humbling smile. "Now you need to build on it." Said said in a teasing manner.
Brendan grinned. “I do have friends and other things but spending time with you is important to me.” He took a drink. “You have a tight schedule.”
Adria then started to speak telepathically to him. She only wanted him to hear what she had to say. "I do, but I always make time for you." Adria said, with a big loving grin on her face.
”That is what makes us work,” Brendan sent back. ”Our feelings are deep and we want to spend time with each other.”
Adria continued to smile, as she continued to use her telepathic abilities to communicate with him. "I hope that means, you will consider coming over to my place tonight?" She asked. They had spent a few nights, here and there together.
Brendan was right, there was a lot of sleepless nights, or working late into the evening. Luckily for her, he was very forgiving and understanding.
”Yes,” Brendan returned quickly. ”I look forward to it.. It was the one place she could just be herself and not be on display.
"Good." Adria said, as the scene starts to fade away with the two of them talking.
Brendan laughed at something she said, loving their time together.
