Synopsis: Did anyone wonder what happened after Tom kissed the
Doc in "Renaissance Man"? Well I did too. This is a
short little piece I came up with last night after watching it on tape.
Paramount owns everything Startrek...but it's fans.
Thank you to Brigid and BR (B&B). Thanks for taking the time
to humor the unemployed.

"You know?" B'Elanna started, "I should really be upset with all of you. Laughing at my husband's expense."
"B'Elanna, we don't mean anything by it. It's just that I keep picturing him kissing the Doc and...." Harry's laughter started to bubble up just as the butt of their joke entered the mess hall.
"Hey," said Tom, "What's so funny?"
Without thinking, Harry said, "Nothing...Sweetheart."
"Sweetheart, huh?" Tom gave B'Elanna a questionable look.
While everyone else around the table took drinks out of their cups, or coughed to cover up their snorts of laughter. Harry tried to apologize for his last comment. "Oh...ummm...I meant to say Tom."
"That's okay, Harry," said B'Elanna, "it must've been a slip of the
tongue." Tom could hear the roar of laughter even after the mess hall doors
closed behind him.
