Jennifer walked in to her quarters balding her fists and looking angry. "Seriously I hate people sometimes." She walked to the kitchen while stomping her feet around. She rummages through her kitchen cabinets as she kept talking. "You know who needs to take a look at their brains, it's that no good ensign 'I adore my shoes' Benton. The nerve and that tone."

She pulled out a bottle of scotch and then grabbed a class from the other cabinet and poured it. "Who does he things he is? Talking to me like that. I should have him reported to Commander Myles." She put up her glass and just said to the empty couch, "He should really find it an honor to to work at my department." She sighed as she took a sip.

"Well I didn't know my marriage would be just like my single. Me coming home drinking and talking to an empty room." She walked to the replicator. "And the worse part is, I make the duty schedules for that the department, you would think I would plan him in so we would have more time together outside of the SCIF." She took another sip from her drink and hit some buttons on it. "I guess it's my turned to cook then."

She ordered a roast beef. And then walked with the glass in her hand back to the bottle and poured herself some more. "Computer, do I have any messages?"

The computer tjirped and then said. "You have 3 new messages and 11 saved messages from Lieutenant Commander Linda Masters."

"Who are the new messages from?" Jenn continued asking.

"1 new message from Commander Ó Flanigain, 1 new message from Lieutenant Commander Linda Masters and 1 new message from 'the admiral', would you like me to play them for you?"

Jenn took a sip from her glass and then said in a deep breath, "Play the commander's message, delete the admiral's message and save my sister's message." The computer tjirped as the message started playing. Jenn poured some more scotch in her glass and walked to her only yet small window in her room. She could hardly hear what the commander was saying as her thoughts went away,

"Computer stop play back," She suddenly said. She sighed. "It's just a random announcement he send to all the officers, I'll ask Larim tomorrow what he said. Usually it just how great we all are, how well we did and we should keep up the good work." She took another sip. "I should cut on the drinking. And I really need a better talking partner than just myself." She fell quiet. Maybe a little gnome I could teach my tricks to. What was her name again? Emily. I should at least have the decency to respond to Linda. I promised her we would keep in contact after the wedding. And she kept her end of the bargain and I didn't." She sighed and just put the glass down.

"Computer should I have a baby?" The computer tjirped. "According to your personnel file you are married to Chief Petty Officer Calhoun, and human culture dictates that you two should consummate your marriage. But it is not forced. Some marriages go without children very well. Would you like me to give you some anecdotes?"

Jenn giggled. "Why did I make you so sassy? But never mind, I shouldn't be talking to you like this. Wish Dana was here. She probably would say, get yourself that kid already, I want a niece. But then again, she didn't have children, so I need to talk to someone who has children. Like Ameri. She is my maid of honor. And she has children. I really need to be well informed about this first."

She looked back over her shoulder to check on the food when her eyes caught a picture frame on the side table. She walked to it and picked it up. "I am such an idiot. I should talk to Billy, I mean has at least a hundred years of experience with children." She sat down. "And maybe he doesn't want them now. All of his children are grown up. I.... Should probably stop talking to myself and set the table." She put the frame back and then started to set up the table. Dinner was almost ready.
