Julia looked out the window of her assigned quarters and let out a breath. What had she done? That was something she had been wondering for weeks now. Ever since boarding this transport vessel that would bring her to Starbase 214. It was a desperate move, not something she was regretting. She’d gone to great lengths to get here, but still. What had she done?

A lot had happened since Nathan had told her would be transferred to another ship. First she’d cried her eyes out at another disappointment. Then she’d gotten very drunk, something she never did. But she felt desperate. Not that it helped. When she woke up the next morning she felt exactly the same disappointment and hurt, but now with a huge hangover added to the mix. After a shower and a few cups of coffee she decided that she was going to take matters into her own hands. She was going to find a way to get assigned on the same ship as Nathan. And she had, not in the way of enlisting like Nathan had, but by becoming an officer. As she already had her university degree and even her PhD she hadn’t needed to go to the academy, but gone to Officer Candidate School instead. Those 3 and a half months had been hard, as she knew basically nothing about Starfleet, Starships or anything related, except for the science of it. But she’d pulled through and after graduation even got the much desired position of science officer on the USS Asgard.

And now, here she was. One week left before she would arrive at her new home. She put her hand for her belly again. Most of the first week on this transport she’d spend in front of the toilet. Having never been in space before she couldn’t have known she would be sick from traveling in space. But she got the hang of it now, now she was having more trouble with her nerves. How would he react? Happy, mad. She hoped the first of course. She turned away from the window and opened her book again. She needed to get these nerves out of her system or she would make herself nuts the rest of this journey. What better way to do that then to get lost in a book.
