Sorry for the short flash today, had a very full weekend and just didn’t have much time to get something done. I barely managed this. I’m working toward the end though. Hopefully!
I’m off Friday from work but am doing a quick overnight trip. I’ll have Friday’s flash up though!
Jim was pacing around this strange place. If he hadn’t been brought there himself he might have not believed it, no matter what Spock had said, and how green Spock’s blood was, which he’d seen himself.
Vulcan was hot. Jim had been to Palm Springs in the summer. It was that hot. And apparently Vulcan was like that all year round.
While Spock’s brother, Sybok, and the doctor, McCoy, planned how to get Jim’s dad there so that he could be treated and returned without notice, Spock’s father had proclaimed that he wanted what he called a “Vulcan Healer” to examine Jim and Spock to determine if Spock didn’t know what he was talking about as far as his T’hy’la bond.
Jim didn’t really want to be examined by anyone, but Spock seemed unfazed by the idea, so Jim assumed that meant Spock wouldn’t be worried that they would hurt Jim. He trusted Spock, so he’d allow it.
As long as they helped his dad, he’d agree to anything.
Waiting with Jim while Spock and Sarek went to get the healer was Spock’s Human mother, Amanda. So far Jim found that she was very kind, the most kind of anyone there except Spock.
“You must have many questions, Jim,” Amanda said, patting his leg.
They were seated in chairs, sipping a cold drink Amanda had brought them. Jim kept leaning forward, impatient, even though he knew there wasn’t much he could do to speed things up.
Sybok and McCoy were meeting in some other area about getting to Jim’s dad, so for now it was only him and Amanda.
She gave him a sympathetic look. “If they can help your father, they will. Leonard is a very skilled and kind doctor.”
“I’m going to be kind of freaked out until I know,” Jim admitted.
“Once we have everything sorted out we’ll know what to do. My son cares a lot about you, I can see.”
“We…yeah, we fell in love where I’m from.”
“Spock won’t allow them to separate you,” she said, obviously trying to reassure him.
Jim looked at her. “What if that means him returning to my time and my Earth with me?”
