Clarissa looked around the room, she was tracking down Jayden. Clarissa smiled as she headed over to Jayden. She typically did not like to bother him at work. But it was the end of their shift, and she needed to intercept him, and let him know, they were eating with the first officer tonight. She noticed that Jayden was talking about work things, with a fellow co-worker.

“That should take care of it,” Jayden said to his fellow ops officer and turned, smiling when he saw Clarissa. “I was just getting ready to leave, you must have read my mind.” He thought for a moment and wondered if he missed something, this was her first visit to him in operations.

"So how is that sexy man of mine doing this wonderful evening." Clarissa asked, as she was buttering him up. She was about to tell him, that she made plans for them and not the type of plans he would be okay with, without his consent.

“I am much better now that I am with you,” Jayden smiled. “I was working with a new crewman all day.” He smiled at her. “What we doing tonight?”

"How would my big hand strapping man feel about going to dinner tonight with the first officer and his wife, and possibly his daughter tonight?" Clarissa asked, as she put her arms around him, with a big cheesy smile on her face.

“Dinner at the O’Flannagains!” Jayden’s eyes widened, a smile crossing his face. “What did we do to get that honor?” He liked his boss and though the first officer made him nervous he was feeling good about being invited.

Clarissa was surprised by his reaction. She did not expect him to respond favorably to the idea. Wow, she had miss read the scene. "Your boss invited us personally." Clarissa pointed out to him, to see what type of reaction he would give. She was surprised with how well he was taking this.

“She did?” Jayden frowned after he thought for a minute. “Did she say why?” Was he being softened up for bad news or was it just a simple dinner.

"No she did not, but I have a feeling its to get to know us better." Clarissa said, trying to sound optimistic and hopeful.

“Really?” Jayden replied. “It’s kind of weird, why now all of a sudden?” He smiled then. “Who knows, let’s just go and have a good time.”

"Let's not over think this." Clarissa said, as she looked into Jayden's eyes. This was the reaction she expected at the beginning. Now at least, he was working it out.

“It’s kind of hard not to,” Jayden replied. “We are having dinner with my boss and her boss. It’s a little intimidating but we will be our charming selves.”

"You'll do fine, and tonight you can be my boss." Clarissa said, trying to encourage him to look beyond dinner. Give him something to be excited for. She hoped it worked. She knew how much, he could worry.

Jayden smiled. “Now that is something to keep my spirits up.”

"I hope thats not the only thing that stays up." Clarissa whispered in his ear. As she started to walk away. "We should change over, not sure about you but I am not going over to the first officer home in my uniform." Clarissa pointed out to him.

“Right,” Jayden said with a grin. “It will make it less formal as well. I think I’ll wear than Henley you like so much.”

"Wear what makes you feel comfortable." Clarissa suggested to him. She did not care what he wore, because tonight, whatever it was. Would look good on her floor.

Jayden grinned. He was going to the party looking good, by the time they left to go home he wanted them both to be in the mood, not that they wouldn’t be anyway.

Clarissa walked into the bedroom, and started to shuffle through her sun dresses. She found a cute dress, and slipped it on. The process did not take that long for her. Luckily, her bra and underwear matched the dress. So all he had to do was re brush her hair. "Don't over think it. Just grab something." Clarissa pointed out to him.

Jayden pulled a clean shirt on and went through his pants, grabbing a pair he pulled them on. “I’m not I just want to look good!” He ran a comb through his hair and put on some cologne and turned to smile at her. “Ready?”

"I see, trying to score a date with Quinn?" Clarissa asked, with a big grin on her face, as she continued to brush her hair from the bathroom. She had to raise her voice, to make sure that he could hear it. Since they were in two separate areas of the quarters.

“The only one I want to date is you,” Jayden replied with a laugh. “Quinn has his own woman she should be enough for him.”

"Not buying it." She said with a big teasing voice, and a laughter in her voice. She was totally kidding. "If you need some alone time with Quinn, I will take Ameri out and will eat in the mess hall." Clarissa said, she expected something along the lines of, 'very funny' or 'ha ha ha.'

“Hahahaha very funny,” Jayden shook his head. “You and I are sticking together at this dinner.”

"What's in it for me?" Clarissa asked, she told him, what in it for him. But now it was her turn.

“A night of mind blowing, incredible organisms,” Jayden said with a grin. “I plan to torture you long into the night.”

"That's my sexy man, just tells me how its going to be." Clarissa said, stroking to his ego a little bit.

Jayden grinned at her. “I have plan for that body after we get done with this dinner you volunteered us for.” In truth, he didn’t mind going when he thought about it. Ameri was real down to earth.

"I can not wait." Clarissa said, as the scene starts to fade away.
