Building Our New Home
Location: Yamaguchi-Solusar Quarters - Starbase Vanguard
Timeline: 2100Hrs - August 5th, 2393
Captain Ouros Yamaguchi was wearing a pair of jeans and a light grey sweatshirt as she walked down the hallway towards the home of her twin sister, her clothing felt weird on her as if they were out of style but then Ouros was a woman who was always in uniform and little else so was something new for her. She reached her destination before she tapped on the door.
Ouros found herself looking into the eyes of her brother-in-law. "Hey, Kam is... Beth about?"
"Ouros, come in... please..." Solusar-Yamaguchi answered as he turned. "Beth, it's for you."
The door opened and out came Elizabeth Yamaguchi-Solusar, she was wearing a pair of jean shorts and a tank top, all in all, it was a rather slinky look for her as she was over two months pregnant at this point and she was starting to show. "Who wants me... Ouros," she asked before she greeted her twin. "What brings you out at this ungodly hour of the night?" she inquired, as she looked into the face of her twin. "Oh... Come on over here and take a seat."
Ouros regarded her twin, her mirror as she let out a sigh. "I dunno what to do Beth... I tried integrating and it's not working as well I had hoped.."
"Selendis makes it look easy, so does your mom," Ouros answered as she sat down on the sofa. "Then there is you, with child number two on the way. Even though this one is child number three on a technical basis... and I'm alone."
Yamaguchi-Solusar regarded her twin as she sat down next to Ouros. "I make it look easy, but honestly, do you think Kam and I have it easy?" as she smiled at Ouros. "Oh, gods no. Kam and I work at it, we talk and we ensure we can both sort out the issues that come up without stupidity happening." as she smiled at her twin.
"I did that already, kicking her out at 2 am one morning, Beth spent the night on Admiral Lasky's sofa," Kam explained. "I still have regrets with that."
"I bet that went well," Ouros answered.
"My relationship with Admiral Tom Lasky is rather strange" Elizabeth answered with a pause. "Thanks to the second pineapple event, he and I ended up having sex." she suddenly grinned in feminine appreciation. "The sex was simply wonderful and Kam here nailed one of the medics..."
Kam sighed softly. "Kadian Paris was... Memorable." he shook his head.
"Oh yes." Elizabeth giggled softly. "She taught you a few things which benefitted me," she added with a wide smile. "So, Ouros, can I get you anything?" she indicated the replicator as she rose to her feet. "I'm getting myself something."
"Alright. Orange punch please?" Ouros inquired softly.
"Sure." as the pregnant woman went over to the replicator, she got three drinks before she came back and passed out the drinks. Kam received his first only because he was closest to his wife as Elizabeth sat back down before she passed her drink to Ouros. Ouros took a sip as she closed her eyes in bliss. "Mmm.." she took another sip. "Do you know how hard it was to get a glass of this stuff in my original reality?"
Elizabeth paused. "I never considered the living conditions of your reality of origin, Aunt Plataea told me a great deal but she was not very clear on the living conditions... I also didn't ask," she admitted. "I assume orange punch is something hard to come by?"
"Some people could get extra food and drink, mostly the special snowflakes and the higher-ups. Many of the grunts were stunk with water," she explained evenly. "Mom hated it because she was stuck with water as well, the seed-donor had plenty of special food and water. Which he would not share..."
Elizabeth regarded Ouros in silence as she considered her relationship with her own father. "I'm Sorry Ouros," she admitted quietly after a moment of silence.
"Don't be, there are some things that can't be changed," Ouros responded. "Your father, however... He seems like a good man but I can't connect with him, as he wears the face of the man who assaulted me."
Elizabeth knew she was dealing with a rape-survivor. Kameron was the one who commented. "When my family turned on me after what happened to James... Torilla and Jake accepted me as one of their own, after I married Elizabeth here and took her name as my own," he commented. "Robert is asleep in the next room and the next little one will be along soon." he slowly smiled as he regarded Ouros.
"It's been educational," Elizabeth answered with a smile. "Praying for my sins in front of the porcelain god every morning without fail." as she giggled softly. "Besides. The sex is often educational and therapeutic," she added with a grin as she looked at Ouros. "But you didn't come to hear us talk about sex and babies."
