Mission: Dramatis Personae
Location: Sickbay
Timeline: Mission Day 5, 1430 Hours

Gayathri Suresh happened to be practicing the cello precisely when Paul Winchester woke up in Sickbay.

She had been playing "Suite One in G Major", a piece by the famous composer Bach, in fact, and had been having trouble with the rapid arpeggios. She probably would've been told by one of the nurses that Paul was awake if she hadn't first experienced a flood of outside thoughts.

Gayathri screamed and jumped in her seat, almost dropping the cello. It was as if she was still in the mind meld she'd performed only about an hour ago- she could feel a torrent of thoughts from Sickbay that she knew with sickening dread were probably Paul's.

She hastily set down the cello and bow, and rushed into Sickbay, where Paul was indeed awake. "Ohmygoshohmygosh." She breathed, feeling an overwhelming headache sweep over her. Isabella was right! She realized. I broke the bond with Ensign Stevens, but accidentally formed a side-effect telepathic link with Paul!

Paul sat up looking directly at Gaya who stood looking at him as he somehow could here her raging thoughts flood through his mind, He said," Please don't shout, I have enough of a headache as it is," he finished," without you screaming inside here," as he tapped his head with his finger, as he gave her a calming smile.

"May I ask what the hell happened to us both after you broke the bond with her," as he thought of Ensign Stevens. He continued," It feels like I can hear your thoughts, Thoughts about me," as he thought~ Can you hear me Gaya, If you Can thank you for what you did,~ as he looked back at her to see what reaction he would get.

"You're... Welcome." Gayathri breathed, her dark eyes wide. "This is an incredible medical discovery, did you know that? I don't think this has ever happened before! I bet when I broke the Terranovan bond that was in your mind, it required a close enough mental contact to permanently link our thoughts. This is incredible!"

"So what you are saying is that I'm bonded to you now?" asked Paul looking back at her, He continued," and if so what does it mean for the both of us?" Just then the doors to the Medical bay opened and in came Ensign Isabella Grier. He said," Hello Ensign,"

"Sir, your awake, that is good news, But I came here to check on Rachel," looking back at the Chief Operations Officer and the CMO. She said, " What!" still not getting it.

"Do you want to tell her or shall I?" as he looked back at Gaya.

"We're mentally linked. It's not actually a type of bond, rather it was caused from intimate mental exposure, from when we severed the bond." Gayathri explained calmly, Paul's nonchalance soothing her nerves. "It's nothing to be worried about. As for Ensign Stevens, she's awake and back on duty."

"I just hope that its something not to call home about?" he quipped looking back at Gaya, He continued," But yes we are linked," as he watched Isabella for a moment to see what kind of reaction that they would get from her.

Isabella stood there looking at both of them from one to the other and back again and then she burst out laughing. She said," Oh this is a good joke that I can not wait to tell Rachel when she askes me." Then when she didn't hear Paul or the Doctor laughing with her, She said," Your both serious about this bond that you both have?"

Paul replied, "Yes we are Ensign we are," looking back at Isabella with a firm glare He continued," and the only person you can tell is Ensign Stevens," as he knew this was now something that they might have to explain to the Captain about. he sent Gaya a message ~Does this mean we will have to get married now?~ as he posed the question to her.

No, definitely not. This isn't a bond, it's a mental link. Actually, to be completely blunt, I think you should continue to pursue a relationship with Ensign Stevens. Now that the bond is broken, I think it will be a lot easier- and you seem to work well together. Gayathri gave him a half-smile, then turned to Isabella. "It isn't a bond, you know. It's a mental link. There's a large difference, and yes, I will tell the Captain. Hopefully it won't be too much of an issue, and I'm not worried about either of our health anymore."

Paul looked back at her he said," Do you think it is wise for me to date her after all I am a Lieutenant and she being an ensign?" as he turned to face Isabella, "Ensign, I must apologize for my actions on the Cargo bay, I should not have yelled at you like that,"

Isabella replied," Ah so, that's the reason you wanted to take me to Dinner," looking back at Paul, she continued," apology accepted," she turned back to the Doctor, "I hope she doesn't get a reprimand on her file for this,"

Paul looked back at Gaya for a second and then said, "we will see what we can both do Ensign, but can you do us both a favour," looking back at Isabella. he finished, "Go find her and calm her down as I think she is frightened as it is after everything that has happened,"

Isabella looked back at both and replied," Aye Sir's," and turned and hurried out of Sick-bay, Paul turned to Gaya and said," Now this Mental link we have now, is this going to be a brother sister relationship or what?"

"Probably." Gayathri said, her lips a firm line. "I hate to be blunt, but you know I don't love you anyway. I honestly think you should go for Ensign Stevens. You work well together and I think you could have the capacity to have a really good relationship."

Sighing, she sat next to Paul's bed, her hand on her forehead. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to get us into this mess... I'm just glad you're alive. She turned and looked him straight in the eye. I'll talk to the Captain about this later. For now... Take care.
