19. Yesterday When The War Began Chapter Two

"I know you will," Jien said trying as hard to convince herself what David said is true.

 

 

"I believe you and I are meant to be together, so I assume you're going to make it back here; back to me." Jien said hoping David couldn't see through her to the fear bubbling beneath the cool act she put on.

 

"Just so you know I will be darned annoyed with you if you don't make it back, and you don't want to disappoint me."

"Is that clear?" Jien said with a smile, a smile she desperately hoped masked her real feelings.

 

She had lost too many people she loved to cope with the prospect of losing David as well.

 

David knew she was kidding, using humour to cover her genuine fear of losing him.

 

"You know, that sounds like an order to me and you know what I'm not entirely sure you're allowed to talk to me like that anymore," David replied.

 

"Why, what do you mean?"

 

"Well since I've just been promoted, you know what that means."

 

"No, what?"

 

"Well I outrank you now, so in these last few moments we have together I think you should salute me."

 

"Oh really, I should salute you, funny we don't salute our senior officers, I didn't think Starfleet did anymore either."

"We don't as a rule, but at a time like this in order to boost my moral that as my rank is now the equivalent to colonel in your militia, I think it warrants a salute, don't you?"

 

"Well, I'll tell you what, come back here, back to me safe and sound and I will be stood in Ops and you will see me from the bridge of whatever ship you're on, stood there saluting you."

 

"I will hold you to that," David said as he smiled.

 

"I will remember, I promise."

 

That promise hung in the air between them while neither of them knew what to say next.

 

Jien felt devastated at the thought of David leaving and beyond disappointed with Starfleet for what to her felt like abandonment.

 

Okay, so she understood about the non aggression pact being signed is meant to protect Bajor.

 

She knew some Bajorans claimed it as proof Sisko was right to call off the entry of Bajor into the Federation that had been due to happen a few months earlier.

 

That his vision of a plague of locusts had indeed been the Dominion fleet that just kept coming through the wormhole; their Celestial Temple.

 

She just believed that in the real world, Bajor and her parents were vulnerable.

 

If she can't protect their homeworld then she definitely needs to protect what's left of her family from any further involvement with the Cardassians.

 

That thought caused Jien break that silence.

 

"Well once you and the whole of Starfleet have left us what do I do in the meantime?"

 

"Do I just wait here for you, is that it?"

 

"While Starfleet, indeed the entire Federation are at war."

 

"Knowing that the longer it goes on the worse it gets eventually the whole Alpha Quadrant will be sucked in."

 

"Meanwhile Bajor does what, sit on the sidelines and hope the Cardassians with the Dominion in tow don't come back to Bajor, for some unfinished business; no way."

 

"They have to, you have to Ji, Bajor signed the non-aggression pact after Sisko urged the First Minister, Kai Winn and the entire Vedek assembly to do it."

 

"I know that, Jien snapped at him, but it's a piece of paper and it will be disregarded by the Spoonheads the moment they get permission from their Dominion masters."

 

"I don't know, how am I supposed to cope with it, waiting for them to come back."

 

"You really think my parents will be ok with the notion that a treaty is all that stands between them and the return of those monsters."

"On top of that I'm losing you and the station, it might not be my ideal home, but it is ours."

 

"It belongs to Bajor and Starfleet."

 

"I don't know if I can handle all this bad news, I don't know what I'm supposed to do."

 

"I don't know either, it isn't ideal for either of us Ji, but there's nothing I can do about it."

 

"Yes, when you get out there, you can destroy them; every last one of them, Dominion and especially Cardassian."

 

"I will try, I know the earlier we send the Dominion packing back to the Gamma quadrant, the sooner I come back."

 

"I'm just afraid it won't go like that."
