GUEST,JenEllen MudCat Tavern Enterprise (80* d) RE: MudCat Tavern Enterprise 18 Apr 00


*swish of a door opening and closing*

A maiden enters the bridge of the Enterprise. She is clothed in a style vaguely reminiscent of the Earth 'sari'. Her bare feet make no sound on the hard floor. She is balancing a basket of fruit on one hip, and another perches precariously on her head.

Years ago, in the Cyban wars, she was captured and tried as a spy. She was removed from her planet Mandola by the vile Capos, and forced into slavery. She promptly escaped, but when she returned home, Mandola was nothing but a nebulous cloud of space dust.

So now she spends her days working in the hydroponic gardens of the Enterprise. Her skirts hardly ever get caught in the door anymore, and the crew is quite understanding about her lack of footwear. It is amazing what folk will forgive for a tomato the size of a softball.

She fills the fruit baskets on the bridge, and sings a song to herself as she heads back to the gardens. It was a song taught to her by her great-to-the-tenth grandmother, an Earth shaman
Me and Tom and Dave's going home
Me and Tom and Dave's going home
Me and Tom and Dave's going home
Before the water rises
Waterbound and I can't get home
Waterbound and I can't get home
Waterbound and I can't get home
Way down in North Carolina
