Josh looked at John and again at Patrick. "We'll do what we can to bring them home faster sir."

Patrick took a Breath before speaking again

[Cabin]

Halfway through marinating the steaks and chicken pieces ready for grilling, Charlotte looked up as she heard the distinct noise of the transporter. Quickly realising that John and Josh had left without so much as a word too her. Taking a moment to lean against the workbench, wondering if she was actually cutout to continue. Her husband was cold, distant and at the moment didn't care one bit about  her or the baby.

Yes she knew that he was suffering what with the mission and subsequent fallout from it, but still did that give him the right to ignore her existence and push her away. It was frustrating yet she meant every word of her vows and wanting to stay with him. However hoped that things would improve, otherwise that might change.

Not knowing where they had gone or how long they would be, Charlotte continued for now and moved onto the salad and potatoes, thinking that she would at least feed her and Knowdi.

KnodwI finished one of the bottles of bloodwine, he was relaxed.

He stood up and moved towards the cabin.

"Ms. Charlotte, do youneed any help?", he asked.

At the sound of Knowdi's voice, Charlotte stopped what she was doing and looked over at the XO. She held back from speaking about John and instead decided to take up his offer of help.

" That would be great, thank you, Knowdi" she replied. " If you could take care of the meat, I can bring the rest out to the deck as I thought we could take advantage of the nice weather and eat outside".

KnodwI picked up the platter with the meat. Then he went outside to start cooking.

As Knowdi took charge of the meat platter, it allowed Charlotte to carry the mixed salad, potatoes and corn on a large tray. Following him outside to the deck and for the first time since her talk with John, felt calm.

Perhaps it was the setting and appreciating the view that surrounded them. Or maybe it was because she didn't want anymore stress. Either way she was looking forward to eating a nice meal and relaxing for the rest of the night.

Setting the tray down, Charlotte nipped back inside to fetch the last tray with the bread, cutlery and finally a jug of lemonade and glasses.

Then as Knowdi got to work with the grill, Charlotte finished getting the table ready, before sitting down, glad to be off her feet.

" I appreciate your help Knowdi" she said as she poured herself a glass of lemonade.

"It is no problem at all, Josh and I used cook outside all the time when we were kids.  The Starfleet survival course was where we excelled at.", he said. 

"We had fun, but a lot of the other cadets would usually join up with us to survive.  We hunted, cooked and made shelter.  So the Academy put us on the advanced course, now that was a challenge.", he said with a slight laugh.

Sitting back and enjoying the lemonade, Charlotte listened as Knowdi shared the story about him and Josh with her. She never got much chance to be able to do things like this so it was nice to share stories and learn more about her friends.

Smiling as he continued and laughed. " I would of done the same if I was there as you're certainly better at this than I am" she admitted. " As for the advanced course, I can only imagine what that was like as I never got to do that".

Josh smiled.  "Well I guess we'll just have to be extra cautious.  Well let's head back to the cabin and tell the others the interesting news."

Josh waited for John to give the order for the Starfleet transporter chief to beam us back to our last location at the cabin due to him being the highest ranking officer.

The smell of the meat grilling made her stomach growl in anticipation and she couldn't wait to eat. However at the sound of a transporter, Charlotte knew who it would be and yet saw no desire in getting up.

Even as those familiar hands rubbed her sore muscles and the kiss to her neck, did little to soothe her. Wondering why he could think that it would make things better after how he had treated her prior to him leaving.

However when he then mentioned that they needed to talk and make a decision, she answered her husband quickly. " It can wait till after dinner, Knowdi kindly helped me with getting it all ready and I intend to enjoy it with our friends before we talk".
