QA had finished everything asked of her by Captain Loam when she heard an annoucement:

The bar will be offically open for business, please come and let me meet my crew and lets name this place!
Bar? QA looked around and saw many excited and anxious faces hurrying to finish their various task, so they could go to this "bar".
QA lightly touched another's shoulder asking.... "what is a bar and what do you do there"? The crewmember starred at her in utter disbelief......
saying "there is no way to explain, you have to experience it".
With that information, QA decided to step into the unknown.
As QA was following the carpet halls of the ship - seeing new signs installed by cindymars for directions to the bar, she was not paying complete
attention to where she was going. As she rounded a corner she bumped into Captain Loam.
QA slinked back and recoiled for a moment, she was not sure if Captain Loam disliked her due to her "wires" and mental abilities. QA could feel the
mistrust from him, but also felt the belief in her abilities for confidently handling her communication tasks from him. There seemed to be a mixture
of thoughts she could feel him emit.
QA, also took a moment to take very long look at him for the first time,
She realized, she had not seen anyone before looking like he did..... other feelings stirred, but she had no clue to what those were and did not have
time to think about them.
Captain Loam informed QA he had a message for both her and antar, the two of us would be handling skyfloatings position until a permanant replacement
Loam then said "he was going to the bar, before crashing". QA piped up, she was also headed that way, though she had no idea what a bar was. Loam
gave her a sideways glanced, as if he had just himself seen an alien. But he made no comment.
The two walked in silence, but as the doors of the bar opened, the silence was broken. The music and voices were loud and joyous throughout the whole
bar, everyone was smiling.
Captain Loam went in one direction as QA looked around.
QA slinked over to a crew member from the bridge and sat down next to her. She turned giving QA a sharp toothed smile.
QA casually mentioned, she had never been to a bar before, nor did she know anything about them. The shocked and completely disbelief in her eyes and
face at the news, made QA gasp.
She proceeded to stand up and announce to those closest - I was a "bar virgin".... everyone laughed at the news, she then called cindymars over and
told her the same thing.
Cindymars and QA introduced themselves as Cindymars began making QA a special drink. Still not understanding what a bar was completely about, QA
accepted the drink, though not realizing a drink of the sort she was about to have would alter her senses and brain power.
As QA accepted the drink from Cindymars and was about to take a sip, she was grabbed from behind and the glass knocked out of her tentacle by a crew
member she had not come across onboard as of yet.
The crew member had a very mean and cruel face with a look of utter hate, as he began dragging QA away. Others tried to stop him, but he gave them a
shove, letting them know, they were not to involve themselves in this matter.
He managed to get QA outside the bar despite the protest from others.
Once outside the doors he threw her against the wall, trapping her there and abruptly giving her a very painful squeeze of her arm. He got within
inches of her face telling her in no certain terms was sheEVER
to drink anything in the bar! It would never be acceptable, as they had spent
years training her mind and capabilities to be sharp and focused and they were not
going to let drinks, ruin the 60 years of the intense
training QA has received.
He continued to inform her, he was her handler onboard, but he was also a shape shifter, so she would not recognize him the next time or ever. He
would appear only once each time with a certain look and would continually change his looks, so she would never know who he was or when he was
QA had been shaking as she was pinned against the wall and paid careful attention to everything being said to her. She was confused, as she did not
understand what was wrong with a drink, but she also knew she had to follow orders from the handler. She knew and could do too much and if she ever
went rogue then she also knew the rulers could not afford for her to live.
In the back of her mind, she also wondered if there would ever be a way out, of the rulers and handlers grips?
The handler told her, she was to go to her room immediately and to concentrate on her ongoing and years control of Theresa, as needed work with her
As the handler released QA, he turned around and briskly disappeared around a corner. QA stood still for moments making sure he was gone, before she
took a shaky step forward towards her room.
As she slowly made her way to her room, she fleetingly thought of the bar and how people there seemed to be having so much fun... wishing she could
join in the fun, but knowing she had other work to get accomplished.
Upon entering the dreariness of her room, she saw her wires still askew at her computer, but out of the corner of her eye, she saw something was
missing.................... she fully turned to see her reflective shiny surface was gone from the wall, where it had hung before. A form of
punishment had been enforced upon her.
QA sat down with regret, but immediately began her continuing work with Theresa.
QA felt Theresa and her as one, since she has had control of Theresa going on 20 years. So in essence her and Theresa were one and the same.
It was a project from the rulers 20 years before. They wanted QA to control Theresa full time. QA was able to perfect and take her over easily. The
main reason, was the rulers wanted to be able to be close to the Earthlings and especially a certain Captain mf_luger.
Theresa was found to be a perfect vehicle for control. QA had been able to coherce a close relationship with the Captain, the only problem with
Theresa was... though QA had the control of her at all times, Theresa was catatonic unless QA concentrated in using her. It was never a problem
before, due to QA being in an underground world and it is all she did, 24/7. But now that QA was out and about, Theresa had been neglected by QA.
QA became quiet and awoke Theresa.............
Theresa became alert ... surveying her surroundings and where she was. She spotted guards but without moving, still pretending to be "out of it",
she began gagging for air and convulsing. Two guards ran to her, as another called the Chief medical officer to inform him she was having a problem
As the guards picked her up, in her gasping for air state, one went to get oxygen out of another room, the other went to get a medical rolling
bed................ as the one guard left was trying to help her.
She abruptly stopped gasping, grasping the leg of a table next to her as she forcefully and immediatly ripped it out of it's socket and hitting the
guard over his head with it. It took only seconds for her to complete the sequence. Without hesitation nor wasted seconds ran and escaped to the
She regained her composure as she confidently strided to the opening and entrance to the Lagrange 2 station from Penelope. This was her ultimate
destination, this was where she had been working and hiding out to get to.
She had finally arrived.................................................
QA was exhausted and decided she would get Theresa to a safe hiding place and then rest. Once Theresa was safely and securily hidden away from prying
eyes, QA laid down to sleep..........................
