Encounter In The Captain's Lounge
ABC Challenge K/S

A single nod greeted the Doctor as the Captain sat down with his cup of coffee.
"Been to the gym yet today, Captain?" McCoy asked, already knowing the answer.
Curbing a slight irritation, Jim answered, "Bones, I just got back from shore leave, tomorrow's fine." He grinned, looking content.
Deliberately changing the subject, McCoy asked, "So what did you do on leave?"
Echoing McCoy's last word, as a ploy to deflect the Doctor didn't work. McCoy was relentless, so Jim gave in, "I was with someone special." McCoy's jaw hit the table.
Fairly certain of the Doctor's reaction, Jim whispered, "Can you keep a secret?"
Glowering at the Captain, indignant as hell, he stated, "Of course I can. I am the CMO."
Hiding a smile Jim said, "I won't really ask that of you, just couldn't resist."
"Indeed." Trying for a Spock-like answer.
"Just like teasing you, Bones. Seriously, though, this one's got my heart strings."
Keeping his voice under control, McCoy asked, "Are you going to tell me who?"
Letting a few seconds pass in silence, Jim then shared, "You can see for yourself."
Memorizing Jim's euphoric _expression, Leonard asked, "How? When?"
Nothing would deter the good doctor at this point, so all would know.
Openly happy now, Jim said, "I made plans to meet here."
"Plans, what kind of plans?"
"Quite romantic plans, actually," Jim said softly.
"Romantic…hummm, now who is she?" McCoy was bursting with curiosity because this looked serious.
Smiling enigmatically, Jim said nothing as someone walked up behind McCoy.
"That would be a he…….. me!" Spock said as he entered quietly.
Uncaring of stares, Jim smiled the mega-watt variety directly at Spock as he approached him.
"Vulcan, you're late." Jim told him as McCoy's mouth dropped open.
Without saying a word, the Vulcan grasped the humans hand to his heart.
"Xenophobic, you have never been, and you stole my heart." The Vulcan said in complete seriousness.
"You stole mine long ago, Spock." Love was shinning out of his eyes.
Zapped into inactivity, McCoy was frozen to the spot as he watched their lips gently brush each others and then as if enlightened, he sighed contented.
