Okay, this story is written as a sequel to a story of mine, 'Budding Authors'. Claire wanted to know what happened aften the rather bizarre ending, so I challenged her to write an addition... :::grin:::

You'll Never Guess...

"Then what did you say to that?" B'Elanna Torres managed to choke out between fits of laughter, as she and Kathryn sat in the empty mess hall. Kathryn was recounting the rather absurd ending to her conversation with Chakotay.

Kathryn made a rather inelegant snorting sound, "We-ll, I decided two could play at that game." Kathryn sat opposite B'Elanna with a huge smirk on her face, B'Elanna looked like she was about to burst with curiousity.


"Oh alright. Well, I feigned shock, then I walked up to him and-" Kathryn paused for effect.

"And?" B'Elanna was practically crawling up the walls now with curiousity.

"I kissed him."

"You what? You and Chakotay, kissed? Are we talking about the same guy, tall, a gorgeous body, tanned, a tattoo across his forehead, looks at you constantly in a lovesick way?"

Kathryn pretended to think about it. "Um, yeah, that's the one."

"Wow." B'Elanna whistled.

"I know, I don't know what came over me," a crooked smile spread across Kathryn's face.

"I know exactly what came over you, common sense did!"

"I don't know now-" B'Elanna cut Kathryn off mid-sentence. She launched into a speech she had repeated to Kathryn many times over. It was the "why Kathryn and Chakotay belong together" speech. B'Elanna was so busy trying to convince Kathryn that she didn't notice when someone entered the mess hall. Her tirade was cut short when she looked up at the sight in front of her,

"...Kathryn, it's just so obvious from the way you two look at each other-"

All B'Elanna could do was stare open-mouthed. In front of her Chakotay was sitting next to Kathryn, his arms around her and Kathryn was laying feather light kisses on his cheek. Kathryn spoke.

"You'll never guess what B'Elanna..."
