Make Me The Happiest Woman Alive

Posted on Wed Mar 22nd, 2017 @ 9:25pm by Captain Claudia Ainscow & Petty Officer 3rd Class Rebecca Ainscow

Mission: S1E5 - Unknown Territory
Location: Sickbay
Timeline: Mission Day 70; 06:00

Claudia slipped into sickbay and to her partner's private room to see how she was doing. Rebecca had woken up after arriving back on the Vindex and Claudia was pleased she'd managed to pull through the horrific ordeal Saalkan had subjected her to. Once inside Rebecca's room Claudia kissed her partner's forehead gently and then sat in the chair next to the bed - hoping she would wake up soon.

Claudia's timing was good as ten minutes after her arrival Becky stirred and after waking up she turned to face Claudia and smiled at her girlfriend.

"Hey beautiful" Becky whispered.

Claudia beamed. "Hey gorgeous. How are you feeling?"

Becky felt a lot better than she did although she expected to be kept in sickbay for another day at the least - unless she could somehow persuade the acting Medical Officer to let her go earlier than then if Claudia looked after her in their shared quarters.

"Better...thanks. I wish I could go back to our quarters though...this bed is really uncomfortable" Rebecca replied.

Claudia smiled. "You can come back to them soon - I'm sure they'll let you go when they feel you're ready to. Grace has baked you a welcome home cake with her Uncle Paul and we've put it in stasis so you can have the first slice of it when you come back. I've had all of your things brought up too - Grace was really helpful putting most of your stuff away for you"

"Bless her heart. She's wonderful just like her mother" Becky said.

Claudia reached over and held Becky's hand - still smiling and feeling so happy to be talking to her again. It could have gone the other way but thankfully the young Yeoman had managed to pull through it and make it back to the Vindex.

"You're so sweet. She adores you and keeps asking when you're going to come home" Claudia replied.

Becky beamed. "Aww. I can't wait to come home again...we can be a proper little family forever"

"We will be sweetheart. I promise you I won't let anyone hurt you or anyone else aboard this starship again - nearly losing you has made me realise just how lucky I am to have what I have in my life" Claudia said.

Becky smiled. "You're an amazing woman Claudia. I love you so much"

"I love you too Becky. Always" Claudia whispered.

Claudia watched as Becky adjusted herself in the bed so she could sit on it and look at Claudia properly - and using that opportunity Claudia reached into her pocket and pulled out a small box. Once she could see Becky was sat up comfortably Claudia went down on one knee and opened the box.

"Rebecca Daisy are the most amazing young woman I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and I have and always will love you until my dying day. Will you do me the greatest honour by making me the happiest woman alive and being my wife?" Claudia said.

Rebecca clasped her hands together over her mouth and felt herself welling up with tears. She had no idea that Claudia had planned to do this and now the woman she loved was on one knee with a ring in her hand there was only one answer Becky was going to give to Claudia.

Rebecca got off the bed and pulled Claudia into a passionate and loving kiss which lasted for several seconds - after which Becky looked at Claudia with tears in her eyes and she nodded.

"Yes...of course I will marry you...I'd love to be your Mrs Ainscow" Becky whispered.

Claudia beamed and placed the ring on Rebecca's finger before kissing it gently and helping her back up onto the bed. Embracing her now fiancée Claudia felt elated that now their family was going to all share the same surname. There was something else Claudia had to suggest though before planning their wedding.

"I can't wait. There is one thing I'd like to talk to you about though...if you're up for it?" Claudia asked.

Becky smiled. "Sure. What is it?"

"How would you feel about us having a baby together? Another little brother or sister for Grace and a child we can call our own. I appreciate if it's too early for you or something you're not ready for...but I'm not exactly getting any younger and I want to make the most of what time I have left being able to have a child" Claudia suggested.

Becky loved the idea. She'd always wanted to be a mother and it sounded like a perfect family - she nodded almost straight away and kissed Claudia on the cheek.

"I love that idea Claudia. I'd love to have a child with you...have you thought of any names or do you want any suggestions from your wife to be?" Becky replied.

Claudia nodded. "Yeah. I was thinking of Julia for a girl or for a son...James...after my mentor and friend. What do you think? You're going to be their mother too so any input you have is kind of important"

"I love them. Let's speak to the doctor and do it...let's not waste any more time and make the most of every single second there is to be a family" Rebecca said.

Claudia embraced Rebecca tightly and caressed her long blonde hair gently whilst whispering sweet nothings into her ear. She felt that the recent events as traumatic as they were had proven just how much Claudia loved Rebecca and how much she wanted to spend the rest of her life with her, Grace and their future child together. She knew she was a Commanding Officer but she knew with the support of her colleagues and wife to be she would be able to give her all to the Vindex no matter what her circumstances were.
