CHAPTER 02: Under the Subterranean Waterfalls [2330 hrs.] October 07, 2014, 01:47:37 PM [ Holodeck 01 | Subterranean gardens | 23.30 hrs. ] Attn: KurohigiAfter the encounter with Tatiana Marlowe, Simon Tovarek decided that he needed some refreshment before he headed back to the party or his quarters. The exertion from the intense lovemaking with Tia had made him a bit tired but mostly filthy. The moss under him had left some dirt traces and mud on him and the sweat had been all over him. It was the combined fluids of his and hers that made the area around his genitals a rather sticky mess. Yet he didn't feel guilty about it. In fact he had shared an intense moment of peace and tranquility with her. As if they had bonded somehow and their relationship towards one another had become something more. After saying his goodbye to the Chief Engineer, Simon decided to stroll a bit further down the subterranean systems of Risa. The fluorescent plants being quite a beauty to behold. Yet his attention got drawn away from the plants as he heard a rumble, quite familiar yet also a bit thunderous. He went through the flora to find out what it was and he stumbled across a medium sized pool with a grand waterfall cascading down the rocks. His eyes widened a bit as he didn't know there would be waterfalls like this on Risa and he moved closer now. He witnessed the force of nature, even though it was on a holodeck it all felt so real. He moved himself towards the edge of the pool and kneeled down to run his fingers through the water. It felt just right of temperature and he bent forward a bit to freshen up his face. However it all felt so wondrous and nice that he looked around him for a few seconds. He made sure nobody would be around before he started to strip down his clothes. Of course he couldn't be sure that eyes could be looking at him from the plants. Once he had stripped down he carefully walked forward into the nice and warm water. At the deepest point the water reached up to his waist and he struggled himself forward against the current to the waterfall. Once he felt the bouldering water crush down on his neck, shoulders, arms and head, he let out a scream of joy and pleasure. Memories taking him back to his youth back in Moscow where there were some tropical waterparks. The feeling of the water crushing down on him felt wonderful and he let the water clean him off. He wasn't sure how much time passed by as he remained under the waterfall and he closed his eyes for a few seconds to just take in the moment.
