Captain Picard turned down another intersection leading him toward the
Enterprises main brig, and entered the lightly guarded entrance. There
was no need for a guard in the captains mind, but the man inside had
And that man was? None other than his executive officer.
Commander, would you do me the good favour in explaining why you have
ensconced yourself within our brig facilities? Picard requested as he
faced the tall man slumped forward on the small inner cell bench.
Knees spread wide, their owner lent heavily upon them taking his time
to compose a worthy answer.
Hands clasped in front of him, Will Riker slowly allowed his head to
rise as the captain took a seat next to him. There wasnt much room,
but the captain managed to perch there comfortably.
Sir, Im sorry but I think its best if I stay here a while.
older man hadnt known Will Riker hed have missed the faint blush of
guilt or embarrassment coating his cheeks.
Picard allowed one eyebrow to rise northward. Well Number one, from
what Ive heard the officers quarters are very comfortable. More so
than a hard plastiform bench in my opinion. Jean Luc jested lightly,
hoping to bring out the humour that normally came so easily to Will
Riker. But Will remained cold and silent.
I havent heard of any charges directed towards you, nor complaints
Will. The captain urged, using his diplomatic patience to allow his
officer time to formulate a reply. Perhaps Deanna could help?
As soon as the offer was spoken, Will groaned. Ah no sir. Thanks all
the same but I need a little distance from the counsellor right now.
A small twinkle in his eye, allayed that the captain had a theory.
Would the counsellor be the reason you are here?
Will sat up, grimacing from the stiffness of slouching for so long.
No sir. It was my idea. He rubbed a tired hand across his jaw,
stifling a yawn and wondering how spiky and unkempt his hair must be by
now. I need a refuge, just for a few nights sir.
Are you aware that this refugee will affect your ships duties?
captain queried, starting to grow bored with Will Rikers circling
refusal to answer his questions.
Yes sir. Its just
. He sighed and dropped his head back
hands. I saw Beverly earlier and she agreed sir. Its just not safe
for me to be in command of anything right now.
Curious, Picard stood up to face his executive officer. Watching as the
man before him struggled to face him. Is it viral? Ready to call
Beverly at a moments notice.
No sir. Genetic. He replied promptly. And Betazoid.
up with a sheepish grin.
Shaking his head the captain grinned in reply. Number one, if this is
The normally reliable officer still looked a little flushed. No sir,
its alright. Dr Crusher was going to inform you later as to Deannas
A condition that is affecting you? He prompted Will
you to stay
here, I need a full report, not a shy answer dodging session. The
frank but true statement forced Riker to shake off his relaxed posture
into a rigid stance.
Bracing himself, by moving towards a wall to lean against, Will began
to tell his tale of woe. Deanna may be only half Betazoid, but she
packs a lot into that half. Including the genetic pheromones and
over-sexualisation that occurs with a Betazoid and her mate. Picard
watched as Will stared at the floor, reciting the details in a
Like the phase you spoke of before with Lwaxana. Picard surmised.
Riker nodded. Deannas not of that age just yet, but there are other
stages like the one shes progressing through now.
Picard began to frown with concern. Has Dr Crusher confined the
counsellor to her quarters?
Riker glanced up and blushed again. No sir
He swallowed hard.

been told he had a son out there somewhere. And that person is me

gulped before sliding down the wall to hang his head in shame. I
shouldnt even be telling you these things. Lwaxana will kill me.
Depressing his communicator, Picard signalled for Dr Crusher. Soon
carrying on with his interrogation. What effect does Deanna have over
you in this state? Is it pheromone based?
More like smitten based. Beverly jibed as she appeared at the
entrance to the brigs main cell. Will, I said to lock yourself into
your quarters. Not court martial yourself. She stated, flipping open
her medicorder and taking a reading.
She has my access codes. He whispered quietly. Feeling like he
betraying ever secret they had.
Picard moved to Beverlys side, gaining her attention. How is he?
A beatific smile enveloped Beverlys face. Hes showing elevated
stress levels which is understandable. But the serotonin levels are all
over the board. She knelt beside Will and drew a hand over his
forehead. Temperature seems fine. Hypo must have helped. Hows the
Again Will Riker blushed. Subdued. Headache is killing me though. Nero
blockers are helping but shes still trying to get through.
Picards raised eyebrow prompted Dr Crusher to hold a finger to her
lips. Dont ask. Lets just say that, Deanna and Will have a bond that
was created a long time ago when they were too young to know what they
were doing. In the long run it meant that Deanna could sometimes send

In this case, or stage. Deanna is unconsciously sending images
directly to Will. Its left him pretty bamboozled and seeing as some
things she is sending arent exactly kiddie-safe, hes been
experiencing some pretty interesting bodily effects. She smirked,
trying not to giggle at recent memory of the shy Commander asking for
something to stop unwanted erections.
Youve got that right. Feel like Ive been working 36 hours
Will yawned. Holding a hand over his mouth, he closed his eyes only to
moments later blink them wide open as Deanna sent him something hot,
daring and dangerous.
Oh hell, shes doing it again. Will groaned through clenched
he covered his lap in frustration.
Doctor? Picard queried, seeing the agony and ecstasy written all
Id say Deanna is getting stronger. The amount of neuro-blockers
Wills blood is still a healthy level. Ill have to increase her dose
along with Wills. She replied dialling up another hypo.
Before you do
the captain started, waiting till the doctor
paused with her hypo. I believe this is all part of the phase in some
way, but a different level, mind before body. He waited for Beverlys
nod. Then why are we keeping them apart. Wouldnt they both be better
off in each others company?
I dont trust myself. Riker voiced. Causing the duo to turn
back to their barely sexually restrained first officer. His chest rose
with heavy gasps as air rushed in and out, and sweat beaded his
forehead. Shes a victim in this as much as I am. I wont take
advantage of her to cure myself. Despite the seriousness of the
conversation, he sighed happily as his Imzadi pleasured his soul.
Jean Luc began to pace. A habit hed picked from Will Riker. Have
What? Will murmured, eyes closed. Jerking out of his sensual daydream.
If she wants to cure this stage in her life with you.
rubbed his forehead at the awkward situation. Have you asked her if
she wants to ravish you till shes healed? Being a gentleman may cause
more harm than good Will.
Beverly seemed gob smacked, where as Will just laughed. No I havent.
Shed just tell me I was thinking of the flesh and not the soul.
Thinking back to his first few smitten days on Betazoid, and the
beautiful psychology student.
Ask her. You know she would hate to see you in pain Number One.
Luc stated. Doctor, I will leave him in your charge, and Will I
approve your request for release of duty, but you will not reside in my
brig. That is for criminals and heathers. Neither of which you
resemble. Giving a small nod, Picard retreated from the cell, doors
swiftly closing behind him as he exited the brig.
Well I guess that means I either strap you down in sickbay and
introduce you to my new med techs whod love to see little
Will-the-thrill in action, or I go and see Deanna. See if I can set-up
a dinner date between you two. Beverly smirked at Wills discomfort
before administering the hypo to hopefully block Deannas sultry
Didnt know date fixing was a doctors prerogative. Will sighed
feelings of desire subsided.
Well I for one see this as fate. About time nature knocked you both
back into each others arms. She winked. Snapping shut her medicorder
and making her way to the cells doorway. Head back to your quarters
Will. Ill see how Deannas doing. And if she knocks on your door, let
her in, ok? She may be hurting more for your refusal than your need.
And with that, she left him alone to ponder.
Will Riker stood under the cold water of his shower, hands braced
against the wall as he tried to shake the hot thoughts burning through
Dammit it to hell! he ground out, fighting the urge to reached
lower and release the pent up frustration. Itd been 6 hours since the
captain had ordered him to his quarters and Crushers hypo. Shed
assured him shed dose Deanna up to. Obviously both their hypos were
Squeezing shut his eyes, and trying to concentrate on the frigid cold
water gave only a slight relief. Giving up and deciding to take the
easy way out, Will began to lower a hand until a small arm encircled
his waist. Dee anna. He groaned as her petite hand grasped the one
region hed nearly handled himself seconds ago.
What did I tell you about the mind over the body William. Her voice
purred as her lips slowly kissed their way from one shoulder blade to
the next. Steadying himself against the wall with both hands once more,
he watched as she reached around to turn off the water.
Cold water makes Billy a soft boy. She giggled.
No, dont. Youre not well Deanna. Will ground out. We
both need Dr
Crusher. Not this. He almost pleaded as he felt the first signs of her
psychic fingers entering his mind. The filaments of the bond broadening
with her careful knitting of love and soul.
Im not sure I want Beverly to join us Will. Threesomes are foreign
Imzadi. Her response rang throughout his mind. Deanna was talking to
him now mentally, no longer verbally. She was happily ensconced within
his mind, like another cerebral half, and part of him relished this

Imzadi, please dont cause me to loose you. Tears were running down
his face as he felt her turn him around. His back against the cold
tiles of the shower recess.
We both want it Imzadi. I wont hate you. I never have. You complete
me. You release me from ceremonial inheritance and I love you. She
Will opened his eyes and took in her naked damp body. Beads of shower
water covering her olive skin. Her hands wrapped themselves around his
neck, playing with the hair at the base of his skull. A set of fingers
tracing his beautifully trimmed beard till she came across the dimple
on his majestic jaw. I miss this dimple.
And she smiled
and Will could have sworn the room had brightened ten
fold, a hundred fold even. I love you Imazdi. And I am not sick I am
Within moments realisation struck Will wholeheartedly. She did love

agreement as Will wrapped his powerful arms around her body and lift
her from her feet. Four quick strides and they were at his bed, sheets
As the four armed, many-legged beast heaved and groaned, murmurs of
love cried out, echoing off walls. But only one word of love was shared

Theyre definitely at it. Another medical case solved.
Only because drugging Deanna would have gone against your Hippocratic

His eyes twinkling with mirth.
Who compromised Wills new door code? Beverlys red hair

Indicating with one hand for them to move along the corridor, Picard
chuckled. Call it an early wedding present.
And as the pair meandered down the corridor, Deanna and Will bathed in
the afterglow of love making, held each other and wondered why they had
fought separation for so long, when it felt so right to be as one.
Because you never listened to me little one. Lwaxana replied, as
listened in to her daughters far away query.
The end ooo ahhhh ewwww end ;-)
