Having learned from her Mom, Sansa had picked out her own LBD (Little Black Dress) that was low cut and high slit and which showed off her figure in all the right places. That combined with her high heels quite a few heads were turned as she walked confidently through the Santa Maria. She had arranged to meet Hamish in the main lounge for their first official date.

She entered and picked a table near a large window giving a view of the stars as they streaked past.

She was still thinking about her experience earlier today with the whales and with Fay. Also, she was thinking about Hamish and his encounter with Esme. She noticed him enter and waved to him.

Hamish could feel his breath taken away, seeing Sansa. She looked beautiful, and it caused his heart to beat rapidly. He was dressed in a dark blue suit, no tie, a light blue long sleeved shirt beneath the jacket. He had inside his pocket something he wished to give to Sansa, something that he found amongst his belongings. He wanted to give it to her for something beautiful like the necklace he found could only, should only be given to Sansa. He also had a deep red rose held behind his back, when he arrived at the table, Hamish smiled.

"Sansa, you look absolutely fabulous, beautiful. You take my breath away." Leaning over to place a gentle kiss upon her cheek. "And I've got something here for you." bringing out the rose to hand it to her with a smile. Its fragrance, quite lovely.

Sansa's heart fluttered as he kissed her and she accepted the rose. "That's really lovely, Thank you. And you look very handsome this evening too.

The meal flew by as she gazes into his eyes, the rest of the room might as well have been empty. She only had eyes for Hamish.

Hamish at the moment, if anyone would have asked what he had eaten, he wouldn't be able to answer. He'd only say that his eyes were solely on Sansa. Feeling so smitten by her.

Afterwards, they found themselves back in Hamish's quarters with the bottle of wine from the meal and two glasses. Sansa relaxed onto the very comfortable sofa next to Hamish. "That was a wonderful meal and you were perfect company." She leant in and kissed him.

"I suppose you're curious about me, no doubt your cousin had given you some of this story so far."

"Mathias did tell me some of what had happened and it made me realize I was an ass, I would like to hear more if you would like to tell me though." Hamish smiling gently.

"Well, I should start at the very beginning." She said refilling both their glasses. My Mom was abducted by the Borg when she was only a baby. They assimilated my grandparents and she was put in a maturation chamber. She was rescued by a Starfleet away team eighteen months later but she was now an 11 year old. This left something in her body so when she got pregnant with me, Mom tells me she only carried me for about 2 months before I was born."

Hamish was dumbfounded by this news, he kept quiet while Sansa continued.

"In the space of a couple of months, I'd aged to a 13 year old before the doctors at Starfleet had come up with something so make me age at a natural rate... Or so they thought. When I hit puberty, I jumped another 6 or so years and ended up like this. Caroline, she's my godmother, she says I'll age at a normal rate, if anything slightly slower now. She conferred with the doctors at Starfleet medical and she says I'm a fully developed 19 year old both physically and mentally, I've just missed out on being a kid." she added. Recalling the story brought up some painful memories for her and tears bubbled just under the surface.

Hamish pulled Sansa close to him, holding her in his warm embrace. "You know it's never too late to experience what you feel you have missed out on. I am a firm believer in exploring the aspects of childhood." Hamish kissing the top of her head. "So I can help you experience that if you would like."

She moved close to him and planted a devastating kiss on his lips and sliding a hand provocatively up his leg. "As you may be able to tell, I'm a firm believer in exploring all aspects." She said in a husky whisper that caused the temperature in the room to increase by at least 10 degrees. . I've been told I sometimes jump into things without thinking things through. That's how I ended up with Fay in my head." She took a breath, then admitted as much to herself as Hamish "I suppose sometimes I feel like I've missed so much, I don't want to miss anything else." Then perhaps the biggest admission of all "It... it scares me Hamish."

~Oh boy~ Hamish thought, she was really pouring on the heat. He was getting a taste of what Mathias may have had to deal with, and this was pure Sansa right now. He imagined what it must have been like with both Fay and Sansa. Hamish gulped, and willed himself to be a perfect gentleman. "Sansa you will be all right. I promise." he murmured softly, though his heart was beating like a jackhammer in his chest.

He held her close then remembered something he had forgotten to give her. "Um, would it be too forward if I were to give you a gift?"

"Not at all, that's very romantic of you." She said kissing him again.

He grinned returning the kiss then reached over to grab his jacket which he'd draped over the back of the sofa, and pulled out the necklace he had thought to give to her earlier. It was an emerald necklace the stones matching the colour of her eyes, with small diamonds separating the small emeralds. There was a larger part of the necklace an interesting green stone that looked like a larger emerald but had some golden threads through it. It was a pretty exotic sort of stone.

"Here you go, something to match your beautiful eyes." Hamish said softly.

Sansa looked at the gem before holding her hair up and allowing Hamish to put it on her neck. She placed a hand on it and admired how it looked. “This is beautiful work Hamish. . So intricate. Thank you, wherever did you get this?”

Hamish thought back in his memories and for the life of him, he couldn't remember." I honestly don't know where I acquired it. I only have the feeling that it is something special. A special necklace for a special woman."

For a brief instance Sansa could have sworn she saw a faint glow coming from the stone but when she looked more closely, she could see nothing. It must have been a trick of the light she thought as she settled into Hamish’s arms, taking a sip of her wine and letting out a contented sigh. “I don’t want to be alone tonight, would you mind if I slept on your sofa?

"You may sleep on my couch but...." Hamish stopped, as his brain just quit working for the moment he'd not had a woman sleep in his quarters before.

Sansa smiled at him. "Thank you. I'll just go and get a nightgown from my quarters, I'll be back in a jiffy." She stood, placing her glass down and exited. About 5 minutes later, the door chime sounded.

Hamish called out, "Enter!" he having gotten changed into his pyjamas, a tee shirt and green plaid PJ bottoms.

Sansa entered barefoot warning a simple white nightgown that clung to her body. Her hair was loose, hanging down her back. She lent over and kissed him again before she reassumed her position on the sofa, nestling back into Hamish's arms.

Hamish smiled then he said, "Sansa, I will be sleeping on the couch, and you will be sleeping in my bed." the tee shirt even if it were slightly loose still showed his physique. "You will be more comfortable there. And yes the couch is comfortable but, the bed is divine." giving smile, and then placing a gentle kiss on her lips.

Sansa returned the kiss and stroked his face. "Very well if you insist. Thank you." She headed for the bedroom and paused at the doorway "If you get too cold in the night, you know where I am." Blowing him a final kiss before heading into the bedroom."
