He stopped in the corridor. “You’ve got a baby at home, Reila,” he said softly. “If you’re unwilling to take a risk of getting involved with them, then I’d be willing to ask Starfleet for another officer. I can tell you what that would mean for your career. It’s up to you.”

He was asking her to choose her personal safety, and the safety of her family, or her career. Before she could answer, he said, “Cooperative Starfleet officers often get promoted, Reila. And higher-ranking Starfleet officers get access to very hefty security measures. Your family would be protected. I can’t say what would happen if you don’t cooperate.”

What did he know of Starfleet? He was director of Betazed Intelligence, not Starfleet Affairs. But as Reila thought about it, she realized he wasn’t attempting to warn her about career decisions. He had something else in mind. “Are you threatening me, Director?”

He stared at her. “I would never threaten you, Reila,” he said, his voice deadpan. But he was Betazoid, and so was she. He was blocking emotions from her. And in her line of work, when someone attempted to hide something, it usually pointed to guilt.

“I’ll cooperate,” she said carefully. “But I want full protection for Keith and Valo.”

“You’ll have it. Reila, you’ve done Betazed and my organization a very good deed today.”

He was silent as he walked away, counting on the fact that she would follow, but not say anything.

She stared at him, completely silent, for the remainder of their walk to the conference room. So he was a member of this group as well. They had people on Betazed? They had people in Betazed Intelligence? The *director* was in this organization…how far reaching were they?

October 3rd, 2373: Starbase 12; Debriefing Room 7

Valo walked with his little two-year-old son Keith, holding his tiny hand as the boy toddled beside him. “We’re going to meet Mommy, Keith,” he explained. “She just had a big meeting about her mission. Now she had to do very hard things on the mission, and she’s very tired now. So you have to let her sleep when she comes home.”

Keith didn’t really understand everything his Daddy had said. Just that his Mommy was finally coming home. He had missed her very much while she was away. And his Daddy had explained to him a while ago that she had gotten hurt, but would be okay. That had scared him. He wanted to see her and make her feel better, but his Daddy said they wouldn’t let them go see her yet. Not until after the debriefing.

After the debriefing, the doctors were confident, Reila’s arm would be completely healed and she would have learned to use her two bionic fingers with flawless skill. She didn’t want to scare her son, and so had chosen not to see him until two weeks after she was admitted to StarMed’s most secure wing.

Now, she was extremely eager to see him. She picked up her PADD after the debriefing was over, and walked out of the room. As soon as she saw him and Valo waiting for her, she ran up to him and swept him up in her arms.
“Oh, Keith, I’m so happy to see you!”
