"Sulu, warp 2-- Commander, why are you in my chair? Spock's on the bridge."
You looked up at your captain then shrugged.
"I asked Mr. Spock. He said I'm qualified."
Spock nodded in agreement before turning his attention back to his science station. Kirk gave a small grin.
"Is that so? Well, I do have to take the conn..."
You gage a deep sigh, not wanting to leave the chair. You then looked hopefully up at the captain.
"Another five minutes?"
"Let's compromise. One sits on the other."
You were about to stand up so you could sit on him when he suddenly plopped down on your lap.
His tone was teasing but yours was serious.
"You can have your chair back now."
"Hmm, but I like it here."
Ship gossip always linked in some ways to the captain. It had been strong when you began your relationship with Kirk, but you hadn't minded it. Now, with everyone saying Kirk was sleeping with so many others... It unnerved you to say the least.
Spock raised an eyebrow at your question before standing up straighter.
"Commander, I would not speak of my captain in any way you are-"
"Speak about me how? Have you taken up gossiping, Spock?"
Kirk stepped out of the turbolift and looked at both you and Spock.
"No, sir. We were conversing about the commanded's fear of your... Lack of monogamous nature."
You were expecting Kirk to get upset or something similar, insulted that you would doubt him. Instead he held you in his arms and lightly kissed you.
"Everything I do is for 2 girls, 2 very special ladies
Your heart dropped but he continued.
"The Enterprise and you. If I cheat with you, it's with the captain's hair."
".... I could see that happening."
Spock new enough about human nature not to comment.
"Kirk! How could order me to your room! It attracted so much attention. Direct orders from the captain? I-"
Kirk didn't say anything and sheepishly held out the bouquet of flowers. He then tried to finish your line.
"I like you? I accept the flowers?"
You sighed and took the flowers.
"I like your name, James Tiberius Kirk. I like your voice and how you're always in command. I like the way you worry for the crew and sacrifice so much for us."
You stepped forward and lightly kissed him.
"But I love you... And the flowers."
((to anybody who has seen 'a piece of the action', TOS episode. Though the base for this scene is on youtube, and you don't HAVE to see it to understand this))
"Well, it can't be that difficult."
Kirk glanced over the red motorbike and sat down on it.
"Oh no, I'm a doctor, not a driver. Beam me up when you're done with your fun."
McCoy sat down on a rock and Kirk tugged on your sleeve, eagerly and foolishly smiling.
You gave an equally playful nod and sit behind him, wrapping your arms around his waist, legs on either side like he demonstrated. You held on tight, not knowing what to expect.
"Are you sure you know what to do, Jim?"
"I'm a captain to a starship. I think I can manage this... Alright, so I turn this... Or something..."
Kirk began playing with buttons and anything else he could get his hands on. The bike hummed and vibrated as it came to life.
"This is going to be fun."
The bike jerked backwards but Kirk managed to keep it tipping from digging his heels into the ground. He then, with hints and directions from Spock, got it to go forward. Somewhere along that, balance was lost and you fell to the ground. Luckily, and unluckily for Kirk, the captain may not make a good driver, but he made a good pillow.
"You know, this is actually fun like you said it be."
Kirk mumbled something incoherent as he tightened his arms around your waist. He buried his head into your shoulder then laid a light kiss there. At least where he lacked in adventure, and 'boldly going' you made up.
"How can you relax at a time like this?"
Kirk sat up properly, steam rolling off his naked chest. He was flushed slightly from the water around you two which was starting to boil.
"This is part of the plan. Spock will come soon. Vulcans don't break their promises. So all we have to do is wait... Besides," Kirk shifted closer to you until your legs were touching his. "It's like me in a hot spring with you."
Kirk's wet fingertips ran down your face where steam was condensing and turning into droplets. He brought you into a steamy kiss- pun intended- distracting both of you long enough that Spock managed to pop the lid off and McCoy and he both looked at you two.
"My god, man. We almost killed ourselves trying to save you from being cooked and eaten by some messed up tribal alien, and you two are making out? Do you want to be eaten?"
And McCoy picked up a nearby container of salt and started dumping it on you two, a expression somewhere between concern and a smirk. Kirk didn't notice as he pulled you back into the water for one last kiss.
