A Fork in the Road
Posted on June 26th, 2018 by T'Lira

Never in her life had she felt so… useless.

It was, perhaps, an illogical notion to believe of oneself, but it held more truth than T’Lira was willing to admit.

Far too often as of late she had found her mind wandering, distracted by thoughts of what she should have done and could have done to prevent so many things from happening. There was much she wished she had acted to prevent, but either found herself unequipped for such tasks or unprepared. Neither was a situation that she cared for.

In front of her sat an innocuous PADD, with a completed form. It had been saved in her files for some time now, but had not been acted upon as of yet.

T’Lira had spent these past months considering and debating what would be best for her personally and for her career and this seemed to be the only viable option. She was… fond of flying, rather enjoyed it, if one wished to be emotional about it. It was an experience like few other she had ever known and she was unsure if this change would force her to give that up or not.

Yet, on the other hand, this choice would grant her that sense of purpose she was so seeking, that she needed almost desperately. It would require much training and practice, but she was familiar with the basics and could see herself in this path.

Regardless, she remained at an impasse within herself and knew of no way out of it other than to talk to someone she could trust to lead her in the right direction.

    An interesting portrayal of a key moment! What is it she is considering? Whom will she talk to about it? I look forward to finding out.

    Is it wrong that there’s part of me that aches that Lexy and T’Lira don’t have a closer relationship as I read this?

    I, too, am very curious to know what she’s considering.

    This is quite a moment to be in for one of our Atlantis characters. It for sure shows something is about to happen. I can guess what, but I’m not going to guess out loud at this time. We will all have to wait and see, won’t we?
