Learn to Love Again Chap 3When I awoke ion the morning, it was another day of tests, with a two hour long break after lunch before my final test of the day. I groaned as I rolled out of bed, shaking my hung-over roommate awake. I dressed, And brushed my short hair smooth, making sure my bangs were still suitably curled.
II stretched, And decided against makeup this particular day. No one too important would see me, and I had finished my favorite class yesterday. What would be the point? I didn't care.
My tests went along smoothly, my quantum mechanics being the only subject that I was unsure of my knowledge. Thankfully I wasn't planning on being an engineer.
After my fourth period class, I decided to lunch in the Vulcan history classroom, if it was available. Thankfully there was no one in sight, And I was able to eat my lunch in peace. I pulled out my PADD and began studying for my last test of the day, taking careful mental notes. I heard the familiar whoosh of the doors opening And closing, but I didn't both
Learn to Love Again Chap 2I dared to open my eyes, and found Commander Spock standing in front of me, his hand still out in front of him as if to give a nerve pinch. I stood shaking as the Commander used his comm to call security.
My knees felt like they would give out at any moment. I could feel a tear rolling down my cheek, And I wiped it away before the Commander could see it. He faced me, what could have been concern crossing his face momentarily, And asked, "Are you alright, Cadet Turner? Are you harmed in any way?"
"I'm alright, Commander." I said, more steadiness in my voice than I thought possible at the moment. "He didn't accomplish anything, thanks to yourself. Thank you, sir."
"There are no thanks required. Something like this should never be allowed to happen. I should have escorted you to your quarters as I intended." He responded, what might have been regret lacing his tone. "Which is what I plan to do now. If you would inform me of where your dormitory is, I shall escort you home."
I was a bit sh

YE HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Well I thought that things would be better now that I was only a semester from graduating. Never had I been so wrong. I was crunching to excel in my many classes, and excel I must, if my plan to work aboard the Enterprise is to be carried out. The fleet's flagship was accepting none but the finest graduates to become part of her crew. Though repairs from the Nero incident were still underway, the Enterprise would be ready to fly again just after graduation.
I was mostly completing classes that I had started at the beginning of the year. There was only one class I had taken for only this semester. I felt the need to study a bit of Vulcan history after the planet's destruction, and this class had been the only one having an open space. I soon found out why. Commander Spock taught the class. Being half-Vulcan himself, he had a vast knowledge of the planet. I quickly found that because of this expertise, nothing short of excell

the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
