Where'd Mama Go, I Wonder?

"Where'd mama go, I wonder?"
D'Alaire — 12 Sep 1998, 8:40 PM

... Tom asked.

"I think I saw her go inside," B'Elanna said. "maybe checking on my father."

Tom nodded, watching the lady beside him shuffle a little in the dirt as the sound of crickets. "So?" he asked.

"I don't dance, and I don't like all the fuss in those parties....Thank you for asking, but I don't think I'd be comfortable there." She turned in her place, set a knee up on the rung of the fence, staring out at the beautiful beasts in the corral, silhotetted in the blue moonlight. "I always felt more comfotable with horses than I did with people, anyway."

"You're not doing that bad with me," Tom grinned.

She smirked. "Don't get your hopes up. We've only been talking about horses, Tom."

"Yeah, I guess so" he said quietly, staring at the corner of her eye until she would have to notice and turn. She did. "You know, now that you mention it, B'Elanna, I forgot to tell you that the mare you sent over's been pretty stubborn about gettin' to know our stud."

She straightened. "Why didn't you tell me that before?" She backed off from the fence and started off towards the stable. "Show me," she ordered.

Grabbing the lantern, Tom grinned and hopped off after her. In three large steps, he caught up easily with her pace, and peeked down to her determined facade. He moved ahead a bit to open up the stable door for her, then followed her inside when she strode pass him.
