Idle Hands

Mission: To The Rescue
Location: Ens. Moro's Quarters
Timeline: Directly following Our Little Secret

Evelyn returned to her quarters after sharing what she had learned with Dr. Crow. Hopefully, he would be able to get the Captain’s attention with the information and they could go find Millie and his wife. As she had for the past week Evelyn threw herself into her work to pass the time. When she was on duty it was not hard to get lost in her daily routine but at night, she stayed solitary. Seeing crewmembers in the lounge acting as if everything was normal while a pandemic raged planet side and two important crewmembers were missing bothered her too much, so she took her meals in her quarters through the replicator.

Spending her free time on her personal projects she began to make headway with her holographic interface. Wiggling her fingers through the air, she watched as the holographic arms played the keys on her piano. It was not Beethoven, but it was further progress than she had ever had before. But this was just touching keys, not rerouting wiring in a console or long-range surgery. The possibilities of the technology were endless but also had a dark side she was not comfortable with. Disabling the matching bracelets from her wrists she put them back on her desk as the holographic hands fizzled into nothing. Tomorrow she would try something harder like writing.

As she slipped into bed she did as she often did, wondering if her newfound friend was alright. The uncertainty of that answer did not invite sleep easily.
