((kk, starting over in full character form with Autumn and para posts ^__^ ))

Autumn came into the room behind him, all business now. She strode across the office to grab her clipboard and view his chart. He would be fun and challenging practice for her counselor's training. She cocked her hip to the side and became suddenly conscious of her teeny shorts shifting higher; thinking she probably should have worn her uniform dress today. But it was just too hot for that itchy old thing and as far as she had known when she'd left her quarters on Starfleet Academy's campus that morning she wasn't due for any appointments today. Her office was located in the Academy's teaching hospital on the floor with all the other medical cadets. They thought themselves to be big shots compared to the lowly Psychologist to be; the only one in their class. She turned back to him, leaning back on her desk and laying his chart down, crossing her arms across her chest - mostly out of a habitual stance but partially because she was worried he could see through the tank top she wore and didn't want to seem even more unprofessional than she already did in her skimpy civvies. "So, why don't you tell me a bit about yourself?" she prompted him, trying to seem candid but it came across as uneasy and unsure of herself. The young cadet nervously dragged a hand through her thick dark tresses and pulled them across one shoulder, petting and patting them down into place as her other hand fidgeted with the hem of her white top.

Autumn sighed, lowering her head for a moment and pinching the bridge of her nose lightly between her fingers. Another aloof and frosty science officer, and he was a Vulcan to boot. This could prove to be interesting... she thought for a moment hidden behind her curtain of dark hair before she looked back up at him, "Well maybe I wanted to hear it from you. If I wanted to know your name and assignment I could have checked any number of files and you wouldn't have had to even show up to this session." she chuckled softly and hopped up to have a seat on the edge of her desk, leaning back on her hands to get comfortable. There was no chance in making this emotionless being uncomfortable at the sight of her, and even if there was he should have been able to control it anyway. "Now tell me about yourself. Not just who you are and what you do."

"Care to...elaborate?" the half-betazoid female asked him, her dark irisless eyes blinking at him; truly concerned now that this wasn't just another cold case they had thrown her way. Something was really wrong with this guy. Her breath hitched in her throat when his penetrating gaze landed on her.

Autumn nodded, wanting him to continue with whatever the list he had in his head to rattle off. She picked up her PADD and its stylus and began to make notes on the new file she created for him. "What affect did this have on the mission? Was it serious? And how many more instances has something along those lines happened, that caused your captain to worry? she offered, giving him an idea of where to go with it.

"Mhmm...well it seems to me that you may be suffering from stress induced anxiety, which is causing you to slip up in ways that you normally wouldn't. Have you been feeling...particularly tightly wound lately?" she asked, scootching off of her desk and walking over to sit on the cushy arm of the oversized chair he was in and cautiously laid a hand on his arm, giving it a soothing pat, "Do you give yourself time to relax and release?"

Autumn saw him glance at her hand and pulled back suddenly, thinking she had done something wrong. Platonic physical contact was recommended as a method of reassurance. Maybe she'd missed the chapter on how to soothe irritable Vulcans who didn't want and refused to accept your help. She looked at him, "Everyone gets stressed. Different people - and races - handle it differently but no matter how hard you try to control and ignore it, the fact of the matter is it's still acting upon that brain of yours." she tried again with the contact, placing a hand on his forehead and running her fingertips back through his hair. Perhaps a reaction other than that of a stoic hardass really did require physical stimuli.

Sensing him soften up she couldn't help but give him a small smile, "Well, what are some of your interests? I love to sing, so when I'm feeling overwhelmed I turn to my music. Believe me, it gets tough working with uncooperative patients all day everyday." she teased him, resting her hand on his shoulder, "So what do you do to unwind? Even Vulcans must have some hobbies." she suggested, but was unsure of what she'd said. Did they have hobbies? She hadn't met many Vulcans and this was the first time one of them hadn't come in for just a routine check-up on their mental state before leaving just as quickly as they came.

"I like that you can appreciate the challenge it holds as an art and a science. Not many people do..." she thought of her father who had pressured her into doing this when all she'd wanted to do was act and sing. The ability she had to convey her emotions in the way most other people couldn't would have really helped her career start up. But he wanted her to use the gift passed down from her mother for the good of the Federation and serve them in anyway she could, "Now then, why don't we try some meditation, if that's what works for you?" she said, changing the subject quickly before going back to her desk to push play on the touch screen panel she'd had built into it for easy access to her music at all times. An interface she'd developed played the music the listener wanted to hear based on her perception of their taste and mood which she relayed back to it. She handed him a pair of wireless ear buds that would transmit his music to him and block out everything but her thoughts and his during their meditation.

Autumn stiffened and tried to keep from grinding her teeth in anger at his words, "Well..obviously your eons of perfecting it aren't working too well for you if you're making mistakes even a kid wouldn't make. So how about you try my approach - humor me please? And if it doesn't work we'll go from there. Unless of course you just haven't been doing your meditation on your own like you should, in which case this is a matter you should try to handle on your own and stop wasting my time." she finally spoke. Her tone was even and there was a cheery chirp in her voice but he was lucky he didn't see the fire burning in her eyes with her back to him. "Your call."

She wondered if he was used to people - especially inferiors - talking to him in such a way. She wondered how he felt about it. She let her thoughts go where they may, already close to her own zen as the image of his lovely lips pursed in frustration or his brows knitted together at her unconventional methods drifted into her mind's eye. She wanted to kiss those worry lines away and really knock him off his feet. If he couldn't handle a hand on his arm then she'd likely shut him up for life if she were to plant one on him.

Autumn smiled, glad that turning off the charm and stating the facts had seemed to work on him. She thought it would after all her usual methods had failed. She let the smile drop, though, before she turned back to him and pulled her plush blue chair from around her desk to sit across from his, lining them up til her knees touched his before crawling up into it and sitting cross-legged. She took his hands into hers, marveling at how much larger they were and had to shake her head a bit to keep her mind from wandering. "You're free to adapt your own methods to these, but just listen to the sound of my voice and let the images come to you. We won't go into full meditation just yet.

Autumn ceased spoken word and closed her eyes, shutting them tight and concentrating on projecting her thoughts onto him, her true voice like a river of immaculate silk would be ringing in his head now, telling him the story, "Hello S'Jenes. We are going on a little journey today. We are all packed up for a weekend trip and taking a drive. I won't ruin the surprise of our destination though, you'll just have to come along. The land is whizzing by us outside of the vehicle. In what seems like no time we are there at the edge of a great forest. I take your hand and we begin to walk into the woods, stopping for lunch before pressing onward. Soon we come to a sudden clearing and in this clearing is a house with a fence around the yard. We go inside and walk around this place, looking at all that is inside before deciding to get some sleep before the big day ahead of us. As you sleep you dream of all you have seen today. Let me see what you would be dreaming of?"[/b]



(( this is an old lesson on perspective and imagination/creativity my drama teacher did with us one year in grade school and I still find it interesting. only then, we were all in a circle holding hands and as she read us a much more detailed story and then asked us to draw or describe the house for our homework - who was driving the car, what kind of car were we in, what did we see outside of the car on our way, were the woods cheery and well kept like a national park or scary and dark? was the house abandoned and haunted or like a summer cabin, what sort of fence, etc etc etc. so just every detail of how he pictured the the little story to get an idea of his mental state. you know? ;) ))

*The house was abandoned. . Windows broken, shutters hanging from the windows. The garden choked with weeds. The fence missing pieces stuck out like broken teeth. The floorboards: squeak underfoot. In brief it looked like it had been abandoned 75 years ago.  . Animals making strange noises in the trees. The only light that seeped into his mind was seemingly coming from her...

Autumn tried not to let the way he had pictured the house affect her emotionally because that could project back on him if she wasn't careful. But it was quite sad. His house was desolate and in disrepair. It hadn't had a loving hand to take care of it the way it needed to be, tending the yard, mending the fence, cleaning and living in the home. After all, houses were meant to be lived in. Without something there inside of it to keep it going eventually it was going to collapse. She didn't realize until after these thoughts went through her mind that she was still speaking to him telepathically and winced, hoping he wasn't offended by her frank assessment of his mental state. There was something she noticed through all of the despair that his "house" represented; in it with her leading him she seemed to be a source of light and comfort among the ruins. Her heart couldn't help but flutter and she gave his hands a squeeze, saying in his mind, 'I'm going to help you through this. I promise you that."

Perhaps now that you've been kind enough to allow me to do this exercise with you, you could show me a simplified form of your meditation? I must admit I have always been fascinated with that particular Vulcan ritual and wouldn't mind learning more about it. The more I know about you and your culture, and what you're comfortable with the easier it will be for me to help you. she told him, sad that their link had been broken when he spoke and she let his hands go as she sensed his discomfort. She shifted her legs to sit sideways, probably more proper to sit that way than cross-legged with her thighs wide open in the shorts anyway. She leaned on the arm of the chair and folded her fingers together, waiting with a soft smile playing at her lush lips.

Autumn nodded, feeling a sting in his words but knowing their source, "Well, forgive me - but as I'm sure you are aware Betazoids are particularly empathetic and emotional beings. It's hard for me to just turn that off, that's why I asked you to help me understand it more, because it is so hard for me to imagine what it would be like without my little nuances - a cheery smile when I'm trying to encourage someone, rapid eye movement when I'm drifting off or thinking, or even fidgeting with my jewelry when I'm nervous. If you don't wish to share it with me I completely understand. It is very likely something very sacred to you and your people, and I don't want you to think that I'm diminishing it in any way, shape, or form."

Autumn finally came to, also exhausted. She had put her hair up in a ponytail before they began so she could resist the urge to fiddle with it but it had gone limp and strands gone frizzy with sweat had come out of it. It was a truly eye opening experience, and yet she didn't know how such a thing could be a way to get rid of her stress. If anything it had taken a real toll on her, and from what she saw of him when her vision cleared he too looked to be at a breaking point, "I think that's a good place to stop for now. Go wash up and I'll finish up some paper work here before I show you to your temporary quarters you've been assigned during our study and assessment of you, okay?" she managed to croak out, standing and running a hand over her hair to smooth it back into place. She stretched the kinks from her lithe limbs, not even caring about the way her clothes hugged her curves as she did so before him. Her toes came up to a point as she stretched her entire body upward, arching her back and closing her eyes, ending with a small sigh at how much better it felt after sitting like she had for as long as she had.

Her superiors had them bunked in adjoining rooms in case of an emergency. She led him to the lift and pressed the button to go down before stepping onto it with him and leading him down the hall the back doors opened onto. He wasn't on the danger list, but even so the door that led between their rooms was locked on her side to where only she could go into his room and not he to hers, for the sake of them having a sound mind just in case heaven forbid he did completely lose it. She didn't want to tell them that if he snapped and wanted to get through that door he very likely could. She opened the door to her room and led him through the front parlor before letting the pad beside of the interior door to his room scan her palm to unlock it and lead him on in.

Autumn shot up suddenly in her bed when the alarm blared above her head, warning her of an emergency in the next room. She jumped out of her bed and grabbed her black silk robe from the end of her bed and pulled it on over the panties and camisole she'd worn to bed since they never kept these rooms at a cool enough temperature for her. She knotted the belt loosely, in a hurry to go to him and see what had gone wrong. In her state of just barely being awake she fumbled with the handle for a moment before remembering the pad beside of the door. She scanned her hand and then threw the door open to see him sitting cool as a cucumber in his bed, waiting for her reaction. She ran a hand through her hair, naturally unruly with large wavy curls where she'd just brushed it and let it air dry after her shower, "What's the matter?" she asked in a panic, her voice still husky with sleep and the sudden panic she'd been thrown into.

The other half of me is going crazy with emotions 24/7 anyway and it's hard enough to keep them in check without adding being bullied by an older officer when I'm just trying to do my job and help him.....you....you...JACKASS!" she shouted suddenly, turning and stomping back to her room, not bothering to close the door back. She threw herself onto her bed and began to cry softly into her pillow, the intense amounts of stress and turmoil he had experienced before and transmitted to her were suddenly coming upon her now that the floodgates had been opened. There was no holding it back.

She waited a moment, letting his words sink in and her tears to dry somewhat before she sat up and faced him, "I failed you as a counselor. I let my emotions get the best of me....could you ever forgive me?" she begged, her eyes still wet and shimmering in the dim light as they pleaded with him. She moved closer to him on the bed and rested her head on his shoulder, giving him a half hug around his side and catching her breath as her chest rose and fell with his.

Autumn nodded, closing her eyes and opening her mind to him to see what was really bothering her. The dream she'd had right before he called for her had actually been of him calling her to his room and the two of them spending the night in each others arms. She didn't realize she was showing that to him until it had been done but didn't care this time. He already knew she was weak so this may have been forgiven too. She sat up off of him and laid back down, turned away from him, "Well...good night.." she murmured, wondering if he would stay or go.

The next morning she woke to find him sitting in vigil by her bedside, slumped in sleep. The angry furrow of his brow was gone and he looked almost normal in his slumber. Peaceful, even. She boldly placed a kiss on his forehead before climbing out of bed to dress for the day. They were going out into town to do some shopping. He of course didn't know it yet, but he would as soon as he woke.

She frowned and turned to go back into the closet to root around in her jewelry box for earrings, putting in simple pearl studs as she spoke, "Well to be honest I just don't want to have to make two trips off campus so if you were willing to go with me it would save me the trouble of going back out on my own." she had to hold back saying she had no friends to speak of that would go with her.

Plus enhancing ones natural beauty can be a relaxing form of art. Don't you think I look pretty?" she asked casually, already used to his matter-of-fact way of asking questions and replying in suit, as well as the way to answer him herself. She pulled over in front of a craft shop, turning the ignition off and staring out the window at the displays in the window.

"I like silk blouses with empire waists and dark pencil skirts best. Stockings and tall heels too because, well, let's face it I'm not the tallest of girls." she poked fun at her stature as she looked under the wheel to her short but nicely toned legs clad in skin tight metallic blue leggings that disappeared under the fanned skirt of the dress a half-shade darker and less shiny. It was neatly tucked to her narrow waist and billowing out in a flattering cut over her curvy hips and bottom, hugging her ample chest on the top half with a scoop necked collar and elbow length sleeves. "But usually I have to opt for this uniform since it's required of me until I get my degree or a promotion, whichever comes first.

Autumn nodded, letting this sink in. So maybe it had nothing to do with the way she looked. Maybe he just didn't respect her in general. She led him around the shop, picking up a starters kit with patterns and pointed to a display full of skeins, "We'll be starting off making scarves, they're super simple once you learn the basic chain. So go ahead and pick which color or colors you want...." she said, leaning against a display table and fingering a silky soft baby's blanket lain out there, smiling wistfully at it.

Autumn paid for their things and stuffed them into her tote before waving good-bye to the man behind the counter, winking at him. It seemed she knew him pretty well. She hooked her shoulder back through the handles of her bag and led the way out of the store, crossing the street to the boutique. She waved away the saleswoman with a smile, telling her she was fine just browsing for now. She went to the petite rack, eying the dresses for statuesque women with slight envy before returning her attention to the sparse selection available for her size and shape. She plucked a cerulean cocktail dress out and a scarlet A-line gown that would end just below her knees before asking the woman to let her into the changing room.

"If you see anything you want me to try on go ahead and pick it out, this will take longer than the yarn shopping. The dress has to be perfect." she called out to him as she began to undress behind the door to try on the first dress.

Autumn tugged on the tightly fitted red dress first, struggling to get the bodice up over her hips. Halfway through she thought it would have gone better had she put it on over her head rather than step into it. There was no turning back though. Finally somethign squeezed just right and it fell into place, hugging her in the right places and hiding her trouble areas like it should have. She reached back to hook the two sides together at her shoulder blades and zipped it up as far as she could on her own before calling for the woman to come help her with the rest. She then came out to model it for him, smiling knowing any red-blooded male would go crazy for the little number. Then she balked, remembering he wasn't like any other men she'd ever been around - in fact, red blooded was entirely inaccurate - and perhaps Vulcan men thought sex appeal lied in the mystery of the body, and she would be wearing a burlap potato sack to the soiree. "Your thoughts?" she offered for him to comment, turning once or twice before coming a little closer to him to see.

Autumn tried not to glare at his one word assessment, but instead nodded and smiled, going back into the dressing room to try on the other one, chiffon and silk and much more modest. Maybe he would like this one better. She had to admit that a part of her did. it was her favorite color and it really flattered her curvy figure more than the skin tight red one had. She came back out and gave the skirt a twirl, smiling brighter now, "And how about this one?"

Very low cut across the cleavage. The skirt mercifully went to the floor however there was one problem that he had been specific in requesting. That was a split that went high up the front of the dress. Making it possible for her to expose even more leg then in the first dress she had tried on. He waited for her reaction.

Autumn saw the woman bring it out and gasped at the beautiful fabric. The entire thing looked tailor made just for her. The little woman scurried her into the dressing room, muttering to the girl that her boyfriend had been very specific and was going to love the way it looked on her. She started to correct her, "Oh...no.." but the older lady shushed her with a smile and a finger to her lips before leading her back out the door to stand on the pedestal surrounded on three sides by full length mirrors to see the vision of beauty she'd become with the perfect cut of the dress on her figure, as well as the startling color that brought out her emerald eyes and made her dark hair seem even glossier. A pink tinge colored her cheeks as she looked at it, sighing, "It's wonderful...." she murmured, turning her leg out to look out how much longer and leaner the slit made it look. She finally remembered he'd been there the whole time she'd admired herself and she posed seductively, with a grin on her face at not being able to take herself seriously, "Down boy!" she joked, making the little old lady chortle before she wandered away. "I don't even remember seeing this one...but it's just perfect. What do you think? Am I...adequate?" she asked, stepping down off of the pedestal and walking towards him, the slit in her skirt shifting back and forth giving little peeks of her legs with every other step. She stopped right in front of him, standing with one leg on either side of his knee, smiling at him with a hand on her hip and a sweet smile on her lips.

Everything has its place, and if one thing is missing everything looks like you half-assed it." she said, scurrying back into the changing room, scared that any minute she would do something to ruin the dress such as sneeze on it or rip it on a shelf. Or run into a random mud monster roaming about. Anything and everything was possible and could damage her new favorite dress that her new friend picked out especially for her. She tried to shake off what she'd done just moments before - the brief memory was foggy, as if she'd not been in control when it had happened. She worried that her mother's concerns for her maturation were actually happening. Rather than going through her phase around 40 like most Betazoid women did, her half-blood was making it crop up now at the end of her human pubescent stage. She resisted the urge to chew her nails and quickly changed, taking care when getting back out of the dress but hurriedly throwing her uniform back on before backing the dress back out front for the woman to ring up while they browsed shoes and accessories.
