A Journey Home
Walking out of her office, she looked to where Sari would be only to see an Ensign sitting there, she then remembered that Sari was on Risa enjoying her honeymoon. “Ensign, I do not want to be disturbed for the rest of the day,” Azras said with a soft smile.
Looking up at the Fleet Captain, “Aye sir.” Came the reply from the Ensign as she stood up from the desk.
“At ease Ensign,” she said with a warm smile before she headed off down the stairs towards the turbolift. Azras had reserved a holodeck suite for the remainder of the day as she had a surprise for her husband and children. After recent events, even she needed some relaxation and time to unwind. Azras had sent a message to the commanding officers that were in her Task Force that they were granted to take some much-needed R&R.
Tapping her commbadge “Arzin my dear, could you and the children meet me at holodeck two in about thirty minutes?” Azras said over the comm channel.
“Sure dear,” Arzin replied wondering why but he’s learned to not question her motives too much. “We will see you soon,” he added before the comm channel was closed.
It has been many years since they were able to travel home to Trill, even though they were not able to go there in person she felt that the holodeck was the next best thing. She had planned a picnic at the pond near the forest that was located near the caves of Mak’ala. It was her favorite place to go to relax and unwind growing up, it was a quiet area though still had people coming and going.
After a while of walking, she finally reached the holodeck, tapping a few commands into the console. “Computer, begin program Azras homestead,” she said as the computer beeped. Taking a deep breath she walked into the holodeck, doors closing shut behind her, it was as if she was there in person.
Standing there for a moment taking in the sights, the birds were singing and people were walking up and down the walking path talking amongst themselves. It truly felt like she was really there, she had a picnic basket in her hand as she walked over to her usual spot she always loved sitting.
Soon after she got things set up the doors to the holodeck opened and in walked her husband Arzin and two children Linha and Yadri. Linha was on break from the academy and decided to spend time on Devron with her family.
“Oh, a picnic!” Yadri exclaimed rather excitedly.
