Every time Commander Palmer gets mad at the covenant... I just want to walk up to her gently and rest my lips on her forhead; hoping my healing energies will dissapate the anger and take the scrunchiness of her face away.
As she started get angry about the covenant, her face became scrunchie like it does when she gets angry at the covenant. I walk up to her, she looks at me and says 'what the hell do you want!'; I put my unwashed finger over her lips and say 'shhhhh, its okay; everything is going to be okay' she tries to swat and bite my finger out of anger, but I move it out of the way and place it over her lips again. 'Let whatever is about to happen; happen'. She's furious.
I begin my approach to place my lips on her scrunchie little forhead, apprehensive, no terrified that she will squash my head like a grape with her big strong spartan arms. I can feel her hate like the mugginess of a humid day, it blankets me. I move in. She let's me! As my lips rest on her forhead, healing her; I can feel her hate turn to healing. Everyone is standing around wondering what am I doing to Palmer, and how is she letting me do this to her. She thanks me.
Captain Lasky, asks for me to do the same to him next. I don't think so. I'm not like that I try to tell him. He persists. I say okay ill try it, but it must be purely plutonic. I go for the move in. His forhead was too sweaty, it was gross. I realized at that point, palmer and I were in love.
