Title: Higher Call
Author: Farfalla the Butterfly-Kitten
Written for Stephen's "Call of Duty" challenge on ASCEM
HIGHER CALL"As long as you both shall live."
Most of my mind is consumed by the task before me. I have by necessity never before repaired the Enterprise's warp engines in this way, and I shall not survive it. I must succeed to prevent the crew perishing as well.
I do not mind. It is a moment I have been prepared for since first becoming a Starfleet officer. The call of duty can summon us at any time.
But those words... I think of them, and hope that Jim knows they are not true.
I will love him... beyond my death.
