"So you're my room mate?" I said, much in surprise.
Bay, as in Charlie Bay, smiled taking a sip of his drink. Turned out Ensigns share quarters and when they reach lieutenant rank they get their own quarters. I had the chance to find that out today through Bay. Better late than never!
"Uh huh," Bay said.
"Well, that's a relief," I said.
Bay lowered the glass raising a brow.
"You are relieved?" Bay asked.
"Yes," I said.
Bay leaned against the chair lowering his brow.
"You are quite strange," Bay said. "For a Cippallon I thought you wouldn't like to have a human roommate."
"I am fantastic at toleration," I bragged.
The waiter came over.
"One chocolate milk?" The waiter said.
"Yes," I said. The waiter placed the glass on the table. "Thank you....?"
"Finn," Finn said.
"Thank you, Finn," I said.
Finn left the two of us.
"Eww, what kinda' milk is that?" Bay asked.
"Chocolate," I said.
"Chocolate," Bay said.
"Yes, chocolate," I said, then take a sip out of the glass.
"Man," Bay said. "You are more alien then I thought you were."
"You betcha'," I said. "You are sharing quarters with a Cippallon, what did you expect?"
Bay gave me a strange look.
"Um, I rather not say," Bay said.
"This isn't your ordinary chocolate milk," I said, shaking the glass ever so lightly. "I am a nurse and you are a engineer. Things are bound to be weird." I held up the glass cup right above the table raising my brows. "First time's the charm."
"Yeah, I'll say," Bay said.
We clunk our drinks together then drank.
I turned my head toward the window. I saw two big gigantic squid like creatures with the top half of a saucer; one glowed blue and the other glowed pink. Several of the dangling appendages wrapped around the other. I blinked staring at the unusual sight ahead. Bay turned his head in the direction I am gazing at.
"Aren't they beautiful?" I ask.
"That is really creepy," Bay said.
The appendages let go then they flew off into space.
"I wonder what they were," I said.
"Fish squid," Bay said. "Star squid, space squid..."
I felt something twisting up in my twist. I leaned forward,putting both elbows on the table, feeling it. I almost forgot what my body is going through in the future. I clench at the jacket wincing in pain. Bay turned his head toward me.
"Hey,are you okay?" Bay asked.
"I....I..." I feel out of breath.
I fell out of my seat collapsing to the floor.
"Carly!" Bay shouted.
My world entered darkness and then I felt sharp pain in my chest.
