The Strange Noise
Posted on May 31st, 2015 by T'Lira
Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap. Tap.
“Okay, what the hell is that?”
T’Lira looked up at Eddie Harrel’s outburst. He was glaring at the wall of the simulation lab, completely annoyed.
Elena Garson snickered, “I dunno, maybe someone’s playing ‘annoy Eddie’.”
He scowled, “Not funny, ‘Lena.”
“On the contrary,” T’Lira interjected, “It is rather amusing. I do not find the noise to be a distraction.”
“Oh, great, even the Vulcan’s laughing at me!”
“Vulcans do not laugh.”
Elena burst into giggles at that. Eddie let his head hit the wall and that surprisingly cut the noise short.
A muffled voice from the other side shouted, “Holy hells, did you hear that, Havi! I actually summoned something!”
Another voice retorted, “Was it a brain? Because you need one of those.”
The first voice swore fiercely at the second as they both faded away.
“I believe I have discovered the source of the strange noise, Edward,” T’Lira pointed out.
Eddie flushed red, “I’ve told you not to call me that.”
“It is your name. Why should I not address you by your name?”
Elena was still giggling, “She’s got a point, Edward.”
“I hate both of you,” Eddie groaned, tossing his PADD at Elena’s head. Of course, the soon-to-be security officer caught it and smirked.
T’Lira was, as usual, completely confused by their antics.
