Deanna's mouth moved, but no sound came out. Christine Vale was staring wide-eyed, almost unable to comprehend the enourmity of what was going on. As the entire bridge crew looked on in shock. Captain William T. Riker stepped up to the viewscreen and turned to face his crew. As they all watched, he reached up and peeled away his sideburns.
" cried Deanna, her face a mask of pain and grief. She tried to step toward him but her numb legs failed her, and she fell to her knees.
Looking down at his wife, the man who had captained the USS Titan for the past six years proclaimed, "It's me, Deanna! It was me all along
, Deanna... Thomas Riker!"
"No!", Deanna screamed as she wakes up from the terrible nightmare. She reaches for her Imazadi on the other side of the bed but he is not there. Terror reins her very soul until she hears the water shower versus the sonic shower, activated in the next room.
She finally takes what feels like the first breath she's ever taken as she calms down, realizing her encounter with Thomas Riker, William Riker's transporter double, was just a nightmare brought on by a late night snack of a triple hot fudge sunday.
Wiping the beads of sweat from her brow, she whispers to herself, "No more dark chocolate before bed. Next time I stick with white."
Knowing the only thing that will settle her down would be the calming arms of the real William Riker, she gets out of bed, checking on her undisturbed and sleeping daughter, Natasha, on her way to the shower room. Lightly caressing the child's forehead and sensing her peaceful nature, a smile comes to her otherwise traumatized face
She continues on towards the bathroom, needing the embrace of her first and true love, her Imazadi. As the doors open, hot steam comes out of the small room, obstructing the view of her husband, though she can see his back turned towards her. Her mood brightening, she slips off the silk nightgown she had been wearing, ready to bare her naked body for the captain of Titan.
"Oh Will...hows about a little company?", she called to him in her best, seductive voice.
She walks into the shower, through the intense steam of the hot water. As the clouds seperate she sees, finally, the face of the man in the shower, the man she's ready to embrace, when suddenly terror returns and turns her heart cold. For this fear was beyond Thomas Riker.
"Good morning, Pamela." says Bobby Ewing with a smile.
"No!" Deanna screams.
I'm liking this Titan tale a lot more now. I can't wait to see what James Swallow
