Galen had been pacing around the medbay, doing his best to honor Rikki's request of not going in to see her. But he couldn't help but worry about her. He prayed that she didn't die. He didn't want to lose her on the terms they had parted on. He had decided that he needed some air, to clear his head and get his head back on straight so he didn't rush off and do something completely stupid. So after about an hour of aimless wanderings around the city, he headed back for the complex.
Pulling the door open, he ran smack dab into someone. Quick reflexes had him catching the person he had run into to keep them from falling. Steadying her, and himself, he looked at her. She was beautiful, that much was certain. He flushed slightly and shifted some from foot to foot, feeling a bit thrown given everything that was going on.
