A Kind of Kiss

Long before she heard his steps, Cally already sensed that Avon was on his way to the flight deck. She wondered what business brought him here during her watch in the middle of the night. Although she could not read his mind she felt that he was not preoccupied with any pressing problems. On the contrary, he seemed quite relaxed.

‘Still awake?’ she asked when he finally entered the flight deck.

‘Can’t sleep’, he answered. ‘Maybe a coffee too many. I thought a little stroll along the corridors might help.’

She knew that he was lying. He had not been strolling along the corridors but walked straight to the flight deck. That was where we wanted to be.

‘Mind if I keep you company for a while?’ he asked as if this wasn’t exactly what he had come to do.

She turned around and granted him a broad smile, an alluring dimple appearing on her cheeks. ‘Thank you’, she said. Suddenly, she perceived such an overwhelming wave of affection that she spontaneously touched his mind, as they said on Auron. For a split second, her thoughts swept tenderly through his brain like a feather, reverberating in his soul. Among Auronar, this was the equivalent of a kiss; neither a passionate kiss nor a mere friendly peck, but a decent and yet serious sign of affection.

Avon stumbled back when he felt the unfamiliar communion with her mind. His eyes narrowed, and a sudden expression of shock flickered across his face.

‘What was that?’ he gasped.

Cally hesitated, taken aback by his unforseen reaction. ‘Oh, nothing’, she answered. ‘Just an Auron way of ... saying thanks.’

‘Would you please never do that again? It may be common among your people, but I found it disturbing.’

‘Yes, of course. I am sorry.’

Silence ensued. They did not look at each other, but neither did they look in the same direction. Avon’s eyes wandered nervously to the ceiling. He had yearned for the company of this woman but now he felt confused and alienated.

Cally had always known that she would never have the chance to feel his touch. But now she was even deprived of the hope of showing her affection in the most natural way known to her. She stared into infinity, sad and disappointed.

Oh Hugbot, that's wonderfully told. So sad and true to their characters. Both are sort of alien to one another.
 
Rainesz
And another lovely picture by Lurena. Such great facial expressions and poses! Grin
 
Joe Dredd
Hugbot, that's so sad I'm going to have to think of another explanation.

Okay, the real truth is that Avon's pants have split. Cally is so embarrassed she can't look round. Avon, unaware of her blushes, refuses to move from the safety of the console.

The impasse is broken an hour later when Vila rushes onto the flight deck and sees Avon (from) behind.
 
Joe Dredd
Lurena, that's a very beautiful, vulnerable Cally you have created. Breath taking.
 
Anniew
Lovely story Hugbot!! Spot on and very moving.

He's fascinating. I've never encountered a human whose mind is so guarded; layer and layer of protection so it's impossible for me to slip in and take a peak. There is so much more to him that he ever shows us. What he says and what he does are so different and my people have a saying that it's actions that are the true mirrors of the soul. I know that his is pure and that he could care deeply if he'd let himself. If only he'd trust us. And he's funny…and so clever….attractive too. I like his understated style of dress- charcoal grey suits him so well.

I can sense him behind me. I can always sense him wherever he is on the ship. I know if I turn he will be gazing at nothing, those dark, deep eyes of his full of sorrow and hurt. One day I will reach him and he will show me how much he cares.

…………………

One more alien possession and I'll find a way of getting her off this ship! Now..how am I going to get Jenna to part with those thigh high boots? They'd look great with the silver tunic I found the other day. I'm so sick of charcoal grey.

Oh Annie, that was great. I was so hopeful for a minute and then: ha ha ha! The boots !Grin
 
Lurena
Thank you Hugbot, that's brilliant! I do like cultural insight stories very much and you elaborated the Auronar way to express affection very believable.
Very neatly and moving described from the view of both characters who "alieanete" each other so often in the original series
This is really how things work. cultural differences can make people vulnerable and strong at the same time.

Thank you Rainesz and Joe Dredd for your kind words re my drawing.

Annie that's so well thought out! Oh yes, that's how those minds would be working! Thank you!

Not in the teleport area...nor the landing bay.. Vila assures me they're not in her cabin. Lockers and bathrooms, negative. Zen, if he knows, refuses to answer:
+ Desires must be mastered not indulged+
Sanctimonious electronic moron.
Blast Cally and her Auron prejudices ( and I may, literally blast her if she doesn't soon tell me.)
Where the hell has she hidden my smokes?

It’s all in the Game


“It’s peaceful, isn’t it?” Avon mused.
He was leaning against one of the Liberator’s Flight Stations, watching the main screen with interest.
“Yes, it is,” Cally replied. She was seated on one of the forward couches, her gaze also on the main screen, “How long can this last?”
“Oh, as long as I want it to.” So saying, Avon casually leaned forward and touched one of the buttons on the console.
Jenna was also seated on a forward couch, idly playing with one of the game handsets she had found in the store room of the Liberator, “You’ll have no argument from me,” she said, “And from Gan either. He just loves that virtual head set that you made for him.”
Gan was seated on the far end of one of the forward couches, headphones on, virtual reality goggles engaged and quietly humming along with the music.
“Little things please little minds,” murmured Avon.
Both Jenna and Cally cast reproachful looks in his direction.
“He has to give up some time,” Cally said.
“I know,” Avon replied in a bored tone, “but why ruin his fun?”
“I can’t understand how he found me so quickly,” Jenna remarked.
“Yes, that’s very strange,” Avon agreed, “However I thought you would prefer a nice quiet afternoon…”
“So you arranged it?” Jenna smiled.
“Oh yes,” Avon smiled back, pressing another button on the consol.
“And Gan?”
“Well now, I didn’t think that Gan would mind either.”
“Where is Blake now?” Jenna asked, turning to look at the main screen.
“Down in the lower levels…”
“So it’s just Vila then…”
“Me?” Vila piped up from the side of one of the upper flight stations, “No…I’ve got better things to do...” he said, his attention once more on the encrypted locker code puzzle so thoughtfully supplied by Avon.
“So,” Jenna began, “Who is Blake looking for?”
Avon smiled. He pushed another button and another locator fix appeared on the main screen, “No-one.”
“But…” Jenna said.
“It was Blake’s idea to play hide and seek,” Avon explained.
“And you managed to be found first?”
“Naturally, otherwise Blake would have found you all in a few minutes. And that wouldn’t have been half as much fun as this.” Avon pressed another button on the console; another locator fix; another location for Blake to search on his handheld locator device.
“But he could be doing this for ages!” Jenna declared.
“Oh, at least an hour or two,” Cally smiled.
Jenna looked from Cally to Avon, both staring resolutely at the main screen, conspiratorial expressions on their faces.
Gan was still humming, oblivious to the subterfuge taking place.
Vila was happily trying to break the code.
And Jenna…inwardly smiled and went back to her hand held game console.
Avon pressed another button, “Peaceful, isn’t it?”

That's a lovely story Sue...if only the crew had done something similar with Avon so he'd never have found Blake on Gauda Prime and they could all have enjoyed a nice picnic in the woods while dodging him!!

@Littlesue: I love this story! I also absolutely love how it fits the illustration so well and the relaxed, intent poses Lurena drew. Great character moments as well! Avon being quietly playful (and sneaky).
