Missing Scene-- "Fallen Hero"
Rating: PG, Humor/Romance
Author's Notes: Yet another side trip in my ongoing battle to finish my original story. Ah, well, enjoy!
"Did ya' have to just blurt it out like that? The Captain almost choked on his iced tead," he said, tossing his jacket onto a chair.
"Would you have preferred instead that I asked the captain if he minded his two senior officers having...interpersonal relations?"
"Nah, believe me, Jon doesn't want to know. What made you imply we were horny, though?"
"You said last night that you thought the captain was suspicious. It seemed both logical and prudent to convince him that any suspicions were ungrounded."
"Well could you give me fair warning next time?"
"Had I done so, your reactions might not have been so convincing."
"Besides, it had only just occurred to me to imply to the captain that you were obviously suffering from a lack of..."
"Yeah, yeah, I get your point."
"You had no trouble implying the same of myself," she said, bristling.
"Oh, so now we're getting all offended?" he said, raising a mocking eyebrow. "Weren't quite expecting to have to get as good as you got, were you?" He moved towards her, and she slowly backed away.
"On the contrary, Commander, I had no intention of embarrassing you..." she stopped when her back hit the wall.
"Uh, huh. And you didn't think there'd be any repercussions?" He ignored her as she slowly shook her head, reaching behind her to turn off the lights. "We'll just see about that," he whispered.

"But you're still planning to go?"
"Well, yeah, sure. It's shore leave! How can I miss that? Besides, who'd believe I'd pass it up?"
"You gave everyone on the bridge the impression that you were interested in...engaging in social activities."
"I am." Seeing the stormy look in her eyes, he went on blithely, "You're the one who gave me the reputation as a ladies man, ya know. If you hadn't been so jealous and just admit your feelings..."
"I was not jealous, and Vulcans do not have feelings."
"You could have fooled me last night," he murmured evilly, leaning dangerously close.
"I was under the impression that we had an understanding."
"Hey, Malcom'll never let it go if I don't look like I'm out for a good time. Besides," he said with a devilish twinkle in his eye, "It might be a nice change to get a little attention from someone not quite so...rigid."
Raising an eyebrow, she replied, "You requested that we continue our encounters exclusively. You even tried to convince me to let you tell the Captain."
Knowing she didn't fully understand his mirth at leaving the ship when it meant leaving her, too, he took a little pity on her. "Relax," he drawled in her favorite tones, "It's only two days. I won't get into any trouble. I'll just flirt a little to be convincing, and maybe pick up a few souvenirs."
"Just be certain that you don't 'pick up' any more unwanted children to bring back"
With a ruthless grin, he kissed her quickly. "C'mon, I'm gonna miss the shuttle, and the captain's expecting you."
