[Show/Hide]

Stepping out of the shower, Alessia was feeling much more relaxed and refreshed than she had been an hour ago. While the pilot certainly loved her Valravn and flying it, spending 8 hours in it on a patrol where nothing really happened certainly wasn't fun, at least those hours counted towards her flight log, which was something. It had also given her the opportunity to fly with her new RIO, Asav. She had lost her original RIO during a recent battle only to have Vinnie Ferris fill in the role but now that Dev was back, Vinnie had returned to his rightful place. However with Sepheria dying during their last encounter, Asav had survived and was now flying with her. The Andorian seemed nice enough but it was a new relationship that would take time for them to gel better so the patrols should hopefully help with that.

As her thoughts swirled in her head, she thought about Dev. It was good to have her back and while the two would need to have a discussion about what had transpired between them that night, it wasn't something that Alessia imagined Dev would want to talk about at the moment, given everything she had been through recently. Although the two had spoken since she had returned, it had more been casual banter and things related to the Wolves. Alessia had heard from other people about some of the things the Savi had done to those who had been taken and well the obvious lack of ridges on Devyrie's forehead now was testament to that as was, on the flip side the more pronoucned ridges on Isley's head, the Savi having gone the other direction with him.

Alessia couldn't imagine what going through something like that would do to a person or the psyche, if it was her she'd probably not want to think too much about it and have as many distractions as possible. The advange of being a Wolf was that you usually had plenty of that with those 8 hour shifts. Dev however was currently grounded so she lacked that, perhaps Alessia could do something with her?

As the Spaniard took a few moments to think about it, a smile slowly formed on her face as she tapped her Combadge =^="Garcia to Okhala I was thinking about heading planetside, take a look around, maybe spend a little time on the beach, if you're free would you like to join me?" =^= she asked as she made her way over to the replicator to create some Aldean clothing. Even if Dev wasn't up to it she'd still need some for the eventual point that she headed down there so it wouldn't be a waste of replicator rations either way. She just hoped her friend would take her up on the offer, it would probably do the woman a world of good to have a nice change of scenery...at least she hoped it would.

Devyrie was in her quarters feeling somewhat anti-social. While she had attended the memorial service for the crew and had stuck around for the Wolves private memorial after that, she'd not been feeling up for much company. Vinnie had really been the only person she had spent time with and that was mostly because he came round everyday to check up on her. It wasn't necessarily that she didn't want to be around people but more that she wanted some time alone to process everything that had happened to her lately.

The fact that she hadn't been sleeping well might have had something to do with that. Most nights she'd been having nightmares of her time on the Versant, although the dreams changed every night. The first night had been a nightmare of her being raped by the Ovri that had caused her to wake with a jolt. She hadn't gotten back to sleep after that, the night after that was the death of her sister and last night she dreamed that she was still on that horror ship and that her return to the Theurgy was just a dream. Waking from that she had to walk around her room and touch more things than she would care to admit to in order to convince herself that it was real.

Counselling was probably something she should consider doing but if she did that they might ground her until she had worked on some of her issues and she wasn't sure she wanted that, not if she could avoid it. She'd give herself a week and if she hadn't made any improvements or her issues were starting to affect her work then she would book an appointment and take it from there.

She had seen Alessia briefly a few times and they had talked, mostly causal conversation or things related to the pack. While they both knew that they would need to talk about that night they had shared Dev really wasn't up for that conversation at the moment. The very thought of sex made her sick to her stomach with the memories of the Ovri still so fresh in her mind and even if she was okay with that, she wasn't sure if their one night stand was just that or if it had the potential to be something more. If it was she was in no shape to enter a relationship and if it wasn't then it wouldn't really matter if it took a little while. She supposed however that figuring that out was the whole point of their conversation, but she didn't know and was in no frame of mind to truly think about it. Luckily however it seemed as though Alessia was aware of that fact, as she hadn't mentioned anything about it once.

As she thought about her friend, packmate and one time lover her Combadge chirped and said woman's voice came through, asking her if she wanted to join her down on the planet and take a look around. For a brief moment Dev's heart leapt into her throat, with everything she had just thought was this how Alessia was going to bring up that conversation? Shaking her head, her white locks flowing from side to side with the motion, Dev decided that probably wasn't the case and that she simply wanted to head down to the planet and wanted some company.

It took a few minutes for Devyrie to come to a decision before tapping the metal badge on her chest to reply =^="That sounds like a nice idea, I could  do with a change of scenery." =^= she replied.

The two women agreed to get ready and meet up outside Alessia's quarters, which was only a short walk down the corridor from her own and head to the transporter room together. Dev knew the rules for travelling to Aldea and replicated herself some Aldean clothing and got dressed, making herself look presentable. While she still hadn't fully gotten used to her new Human appearance she had made a little improvement in that area, although part of that might have been due to the fact that V-Nine's offer to reverse what the Savi had done to her was still there, all she had to do was get over the fear of letting something created by them mess with her DNA again, something that was easier said than done.

Shaking her head to banish those thoughts, this was meant to be an opportunity to explore a planet with a friend and hopefully take her mind off of all of that stuff. Heading out of her quarters she made her way down the corridor towards Alessia's quarters where the two Wolves would then head to the transporter and do some exploring.

The two Wolves had met up not long after Alessia's original message and, having retrieved their Aldean Communicator and paperwork to trade had beamed down to the planet in the Ibai Besi Promenade. Considering it was the most popular landmark and centre of the city, it seemed the most logical place. They could take a good look around the city, perhaps do some shopping and it lead to the beaches, all good options for two fighter pilots looking for some good R&R.

"It certainly is a beautlful looking City." the dark haired Wolf said as they made they way down the promenade "I honestly can't remember the last time I was in a City it's been that long." she added as they continued making their way towards the many shops that she could see just ahead of them.

Taking a glance over at her friend and sister Wolf it was still a bit unusual to look at Dev and not see those Romulan ridges of hers jutting out of her forehead anymore. It was in reality a small thing really and yet it did change her apperance more that one would think it would, especially considering they were not as prominant as a full blooded Romulans were. Despite her now smooth forehead though she still looked enough like her former self to be identifiied. Alessia couldn't imagine what that must be like to look in a mirror at your own reflection and have something so promenant a feature no longer there. She had yet to hear all of what Dev had been through on that ship, but that violation alone was enough to make Alessia hop in her Valravn and blow up as many Savi ships as she could for revenge.

This however was not meant to be an outing to talk about whatever horrors had occured on that ship, this was about an afternoon of rest and relaxation for both of them. Should the conversation end up there if Dev wished it then Alessia would listen, if not however then she would do her best to give her friend and good afternoon. Realising that she had been looking at her for a while now without saying anything, she smiled.

"So what do you want to do? Hit the shops and see if we find any souvenirs, maybe some beachwear and hit the beach? Try out some local food perhaps or just walk around and take in the city? Personally I don't mind any or all of the above."  she asked, leaving it up to Dev to decide what they did, not knowing what mood the woman would be in for.

They had beamed down at the far end of the promenade in order to avoid causing any disruptions or any large scenes, after all they weren't supposed to be giving away too much information about who they were. Even from their current position, the City looked rather beautiful. Taking a deep breath of the fresh air, it took Dev by surprise by how different actual fresh air smelt in comparison to the recycled oxygen they usually breathed on the Theurgy and in their fighters.

As the duo started walking down the promenade towards the shops, Dev listened as Alessia spoke and had to agree that it had been a while for her too since the last time she had been in a city. "I can't remember the last time I was either now that you mention it. Then again we do live on a starship and our jobs are to fly fighters so I suppose it makes sense really." she replied.

Ahead of her she could see the various shops coming into view and was wondering what kind of things they might find. However that thought didn't last too long as she caught Alessia looking at her out of the corner of her eye and turned to look at her, expecting her friend to ask her something, yet her fellow Wolf remained silent. The longer it went on the more Devyrie started to think that Alessia was studying her and her new appearance, feeling herself starting to get uncomfortable and regretting her decision to come. However almost as soon as the thought occurred to her Alessia spoke up asking her what she wanted to do.

What did she want to do? It was a good question. That combined with her own silly thoughts that her friend was judging her or something caused a delay in her reply as she mentally cursed herself for thinking such a thing in the first place. "Well we're near the shops so we might as well take a look around and see what they have, it will be interesting to see what kind of things they sell and if there's anything that takes our fancy. After that I wouldn't mind grabbing a bite to eat and sample the local food. Although if we're going to the beach we might want to purchase some beachwear too, just to be on the safe side." she replied, realising that all she had really done was repeat the Spanish woman's ideas as answers.

The two friends spent the next hour shopping in the various shops and market stalls, where she purchased a couple of nice hand crafted statues. Admittedly she didn't know what they were of but they looked nice and would go well in her quarters. Along with the statues she purchased several Aldean shirts, skirts and dresses that had caught her eye in one of the clothing stores they had gone into as well as a few pairs of beachwear.

After their shopping expedition was over with the two Lone Wolves continued down the promenade towards the seafront during which Devyrie spotted several Aldean men looking her way and checking her out, causing a small shudder to run through her body. It probably wouldn't be noticable to anybody other than Alessia assuming the pilot was paying attention to her but the last thing Dev wanted was that kind of attention from anyone. Pushing the thoughts out of her mind however she smiled as she noticed that scent of salt gradually increasing the closer they got to the seafront and smiled. "I can't remember the last time I went to the beach." she said with a smile, finding herself actually looking forward to it.

As the two women walked and talked Alessia couldn't really counter what her friend had said, they had both decided to become fighter pilots and that meant that unlike the other career tracks that at one point or another would go on away missions or down to planets, their missions were always in space usually, the only time they got to go planetside or missions were generally if they had to land for some reason, which was rare. "That's a fair point, can't complain though I certainly love flying, especially the Valravn. Speaking of which I heard they gave you Sephiria's old one to replace yours, any word on when she'll be spaceworthy again?" she asked.

As the two contined getting closer to the store fronts as they walked, ALessia listened to Dev while also taking in the sights around her, Aldea really was a nice looking City. When Dev suggested they start with a shopping trip before grabbing a bite to eat and possible head to the beach, she grinned and nodded in agreement. "Sounds like a plan. the raven haired beauty responded.

They must have spent at least an hour shopping in various stores and picked up a few things. Alessia had purchased a few bikinis, t-shirts, tank tops and a few other items of clothing and while Dev had purchased some Aldean statues that Alessia couldn't for the life of her figure out what they were, she had found a few cool model ships of various designs that she couldn't resist buying. While the Spaniard wasn't the biggest collector of such things, her quarters were quite sparse of decorations and they would brightly the place up a bit.

After they had finished shopping, the two women continued to venture down the promenade in the direction of the beaches. While they went Alessia and Dev both seemed to catch the eye of some of the males. Not that Alessia could blame them, they were both two beautiful women that did somewhat stick out in comparion to the Aldeans. Moreso Dev consider that hairstyle and it's white colouring, both of which were very unique around here. Glancing over at her friend, it seemed like she wasn't too comfortable with the attention, but she was handling it well, Alessia would keep an eye out though just to make sure. As for her, while she didn't mind some attention she wasn't particularly in the mood for companionship and she'd had a good...well great evening with Evelyn and Lillee a few days ago that had scratched that itch for a while. Besides this was meant to be an afternoon with a friend, not that she wouldn't necessarily forego a little flirting if someone were to give her the attention, just for fun.

"I went to Risa during our last shoreleave before we were assigned to the Orcus but that was a while ago." Alessia replied as they got closer to the beach, at least she assumed that they were based on the sea air smell that was starting to assault her senses and sure enough they could see the ocean appear over the horizon ahead of them. "Well there's the beach, do we want to head there first and then find some food or find food and head to the beach?"

Dev nodded and smiled "You're right, I love flying my Valravn too, always have and yes we've been given Seph's Valravn, I hate that we had to lose her but at least her old bird will keep fighting." she replied, not really wanting to think too much about death and loss today. Luckily their conversation continued and topics were switched with enough relative frequency and fluidity that it was easy to avoid and thankfully the two friend did not have awkwardness between them, at least for now, something that Dev was thankful for.

As their shopping spree had ended and the two made their way towards the beach, Alessia spoke about how that last time she had been to a beach was on Risa during her last shore leave before the White Wolves had been assigned to the Orcus. Truthfully it hadn't been that long since that original transfer had happened but given everything that had happened since then, it certainly felt like a lot more time had passed since then, everything had been so simple back then. "Risa is a lovely place, I'll have to go there again sometime once all of this is over with." she replied, leaving the If we survive and aren't arrested part of the sentence out of it. "I say we hit the beach first and then find food after, it's already 1600 hours, don't want to waste the last few hours of sun right? she smiled.

The two women made their way along the rest of the promenade and down towards the beach, which was certainly a beautiful place. The ocean stretched out for miles along the coastline from what she could see, the fresh sea air filled her lungs and the sounds of the waves lapping against the sand was harmoniously peaceful. If it wasn't for the loud noise of the people it would have been perfect. Perhaps they could find a quite, less populated part of the beach all being well.

Looking around, Dev spotted a changing room area and pointed it out to Alessia "Looks like those are the changing rooms." she said as she started making her way over towards them. They had to pay a small fee in order to rent a locker for their stuff, which was removed from the funds assigned to their communicators. While each person was given an individual cubicle to get changed in, the lockers themselves were lined along the walls a little similar to how the Wolves locker room was arranged, something that was familiar to both women.

Heading into her own cubicle, Dev placed down her bags and started removing her clothing until she was naked and shuddered slightly, although whether it was due to a slight breeze that passed through or a brief flashback to the last time she had been naked on the Versant and with the Ovri. Closing her eyes and trying to remain calm, she took a few slow, deep breaths and opened her eyes, it was over with now and she was fine. Reaching down into her bag she retried one of the new bikini's she had purchased and put them on, starting by stepping into the bottoms and pulling them up and then the top, slipping her hands through the straps and clipping the back before finally removing the sandals she had also purchased and slipping them on and neatly folding her own replicated Aldean clothing into the bag.

Stepping out into the locker room, she was a few seconds quicker than Alessia it seemed at getting changed and made her way over to her assigned locker, opening it and placed her bag inside. Hearing a cubicle open behind her she turned to see Alessia emerge and before she could think about it, her eyes glanced down over the Human's body, noting her physique and the bikini that Alessia had purchased, a brief mental image of the woman being naked the night they had shared together flashing through her mind.

"N...nice bikini Alessia, it looks good on you." she managed to get out as her eyes returned to the other woman's face with a small smile. Unlike her, Alessia had apparently stored her bags in her locker before opting to get changed by the looks of it as she had emerged without hers. She just hoped that Alessia hadn't noticed her somewhat blatantly checking her out.

Alessia nodded "I'm sure she wouldn't mind you flying her, but yeah it sucks that she was one of the ones we lost, at least her Symbiont survived, she'd be pleased about that. Hopefully we'll find a host for it sometime." the Spaniard replied. It was a small consolation but at least a part of Seph would live on going forward.

As they made their way past the last few rows of stalls out of the market and down towards the beach, the duo discussed the last time they had both gone to the beach, with Alessia starting the conversation and listening to Dev as she spoke about her last time and smiled, with a nod "It certainly is, and who knows maybe if you do I'll join you if you don't mind the company, perhaps even see if we can drag Logan along with us." she grinned, nodding when Dev suggested they head to the beach now to take advanage of the last few hours of daylight.

When they arrived at the beachfront, Alessia had to admit that she was impressed as she looked out over the sand, the salty sea air, the sounds of the waves crashing against the shoreline, it was pretty damn relaxing and peaceful she had to admit and reminded her a lot like Risa's beaches. She could see herself spending a lot of time here on her downtime.

The pilot was brought out of her thoughts when Dev pointed out the changing rooms and nodded in agreement as the two made their way over. After paying the fee and each getting a locker, Alessia watched as Dev immediately headed into one of the cubicles to get changed while she crossed over to her locker and placed her bags inside and retrieved the black bikini and sandals that she had purchased, making her way to her own cubicle to get changed.

When she was done, Dev was already in hers and was waiting for her by the lockers. As Alessia made her way back over to her locker, Dev commented on her bikini, although there was a slight stutter to her voice, which Alessia choose to ignore, even though she had seen Dev check her out. Choosing to smile instead "Thanks Dev, yours looks great on you too." she replied, hoping that her own visual examination of her friend had gone unnoticed as she placed her own clothing into the locker and closed it. "To the beach!" she announced with a grin as the two made their way out of the changing room. 

Walking along the soft, warm, yellow sand the two Wolves continued to walk along the beach until they found an little section of the beach to themselves and sat down. "I can't remember the last time we actually just sat down and relaxed." she said as she looked out over the ocean, watching as the crystal blue water lapped back and forth, small waves ebbing and flowing before settling down. "It honestly feels like we haven't actually stopped moving since we were told to pack up the Valravn's and report to the Orcus, seems like that was years ago now."
