Timeline: Late night


Close to midnight, the sleepless Corrine Steiner hear her door chime. Computer announced, ==Jasmine==.

"Come in." The Shokirian, dressed in night gown, stopped to lean against the doorpost. Her expression was sullen and weary. "Uh oh, what's wrong?"

"I can't sleep."

"Why not?"

"Because you can't sleep."

Corrine sighed, "It's that strong?"

Jasmine came in and sat down beside her. "Answer me a personal question?" She received a tentative nod. "What did S'er'in'e do during your date that struck so deeply?"

Corrie blushed, "You felt that?"

"No, I felt your reaction to it."

The human smiled bashfully, "He whiskered me."

Jasmine broke out into loud laughter, "They DO that?"

Unable to stop grinning, Corrie nodded, "It chilled me to the bone! And that purr! It about shook the room!"

The Shokirian shook her head fondly, "Corrie, you look like a woman falling in love."

Pained hopefulness misted her eyes, "I hate it when my heart runs faster than my intellect."

Jasmine nodded. "Just don't allow your fears to shut the door on him. Life's too short. Find out if he's the one."

Corrine cleared her throat.


"Um, well... a worry occurred to me."

"And that is?"

Corrie raised her chin, nervously stroking at her throat, "Well... on Earth, male lions are... in a female pride."

Jazz's eyes lit up, "Are you trying to say the word 'polygamous'?" Corrie's eyes widened in shock, to which she reciprocated, "Oh no!" She then grinned wickedly, "You're going to need bigger quarters."

Corrine grabbed couch pillows and hurled them at her.
