Timeline: Following "Endeavour's Folly"
Thea scanned herself and frowned. There didn't appear to be anything wrong with her. So why did she have a headache? Stress induced? She mumbled something to herself and sighed, willing her body to let go of any of the stress it seemed to be holding onto. She didn't even hear the doors open behind her until a slight change in the air pressure forced her to look and involuntarily jump at the Commodore's presence.
"Sorry, Doc," Greg said, holding up his hands. "I hollered for you when I came in, but it looks like you're preoccupied."
She shook her head. "Yes and no." It would have been easier to explain but that really wasn't Thea's style. "Have a seat. I just want to run a few scans and make sure everything looks healed up then I'll release you for full duty."
"Sure thing." Greg hopped up onto the biobed and let out a heavy sigh. "If you need to get something off your chest Lieutenant, I'm all ears. Captains may not be ship's counselors, but we're decent pinch hitters when the time comes."
"Oh it's nothing, just a headache. I can't find any reason for it though. This tricorder says I'm perfectly fine and yet I feel a pulsing pain in my head. Annoying is what it is but I'm sure it's just stress or lack of sleep."
"You ever try tai chi?" Greg asked.
Thea shook her head. "What's that?" She asked as she scanned around his head. "Looks like you're all healed up. You haven't been having any headaches have you? Any lightheadedness?"
"It's an old form of meditation and exercise from China," Greg answered. "It's like a very, very slow version of martial arts, designed to focus the body and clear the mind. But as for my mind, no more headaches than I had before I whacked it against my chair."
"Good," Thea answered him setting down her scanner, satisfied that he was fully recovered. "Do you practice it? Could you teach me?"
"I do a few times a week," He said. "I'm not a master or anything, but I know a good holoprogram or two for beginners."
"Okay," Thea said looking rather confused. Was that a yes or no? Did he want her to learn from a different holoprogram or was he okay with her invading his? "When?" she finally asked, Thea would much rather assume she was welcome.
"Day after tomorrow, 0800 in holodeck two," Greg answered, clapping his hands together. "Bring some patience and an open mind."
"I'm very patient, I think," She smiled. "Alright, you're free to return to full duty ad I will see you the day after tomorrow." She paused, not wanting to turn away from him if there was something else.
Farragut smiled and turned to leave the doctor's office. He stopped at the door and looked back at her over his shoulder. "Good job on the bridge, Doctor. We're lucky to have you aboard." He offered a firm nod and left before Thea could respond.
