Q's mistake

By Ivy Bell

Adventure / Scifi

I am sorry

..One week later aboard the Enterprise..

...Captain's ready room...

"Q!" Picard shouts. "I need to speak with you."

In a flash of white light Q appears on the couch with his feet on the arm cushion and his right hand leaning against the right temple.

"Yes?" Q said. "What is it about?"

"That...fangirl," Picard said. "You must bring her back."

"Sorry, Jean Luc," Q apologizes. "I can't do that."

Picard stands up then pulls his shirt down.

"Yes, you can," Picard said.

"It is not my choice, anymore," Q said, now sitting upright. "I didn't check her past."

"Q," Picard said.

"It turns out she is very emotional," Q said. "If you had seen a young woman so furious and upset then you too would be in my position not to return."

"That never stopped you from coming back," Picard said.

"You are different," Q said.

"That I am," Picard said. "But you have to."

"I made a mistake, Jean Luc," Q said. "I wanted her to have fun but that backfired on me."

There is a variety of beeps from the door.

"Come in, Worf," Picard said, now by the desk.

Worf came in and the doors shut behind him.

"Q," Worf said. "Please."

"You, pleading?" Q said, at least shocked. "That's so unlike you."

"It has been tearing my son in two that he hasn't apologized to her," Worf said. "From father to father; at least give Alexander the chance to apologize."

Q looks over to Picard and then back to Worf.

"Let me get this clear; you are asking me to go over her head," Q said.

"Not like you actually cared about going over someone's head," Worf said. "But yes, we are."

"I don't care how you do it,Q," Picard said. "Just do it...If I am really your 'best friend', do it for my friend."

A smile appears on Q's face.

"You asked for it," Q said.

Then with a snap of his fingers Q is gone before them in a flash of light.
