Whirlwind Romance

Chief of Security Log, Personal.

I can't believe it. Just days into my new assignment I met the most amazing person.

Her name is Shoniara. She's a couple of years younger than I am, but I've fallen head over heels for her.

She's the ship's Chief Medical Officer. We met when I brought Etienne in for his boarding checkup. Of course the little devil played matchmaker for his old man. We had lunch later that day, and that night I went to dinner in her quarters. I hadn't intended for it to progress that fast, but next thing I knew we were fooling around. It would have progressed further but her cat intervened.

Anyway, she's everything I never knew I was looking for. Beautiful, smart, tough. She's had a rough time of it. Like me she lost her spouse. His name was Mark and from what I've gathered he was a good man. She also lost her daughter. I know that kind of loss, but she watched it happen. I just want to hold her and protect her from that pain, but of course I can't. Not that she needs my protection. Like I said, she's tough and perfectly capable of taking care of herself.

Already we've hit a bump or two, but nothing we can't overcome. Etienne adores her, so that's a definite plus. I'm already thinking about marriage, but I don't want to rush her. Of course, we've already slept in the same bed. No hanky panky yet, though. That's okay. I'm in no rush. I told her I would wait as long as she wanted to. She's worth the wait.

I love her. It's that simple. And we've only known each other for a couple of days, but I'm head over heels in love. I've only felt that for Malina. Surprisingly I don't feel any guilt about it. I know Malina would want Etienne and I to be happy, and she wouldn't want us to be alone. It's just that for a long time it's been him and I against the galaxy, but I look forward to facing that with her at my side. Hopefully we'll add another little one or six to the family, but I'll be just as happy with the three of us.
