Q's gift

By Ivy Bell

Scifi / Action

Q

"And here you are picking up poop with a stick!" I heard a familiar voice belonging to Q.

I look up frozen in place.

"...Q?" I said.

There stood Q, the guy from the Q Continuum, wearing a black and red Star Trek uniform along with the Captain's pin. He seems to be rather disgusted by what I am doing to be responsible.

"Yes," Q said. "That I am."

I gasp.

"You are not suppose to be here!" I said. "You are fictional!"

Q laughs.

"I am quite aware of that," Q said, with a smile.

I grew dumbfounded.

"What?" I ask.

"I am quite aware that I am fictional in your universe, young lady," Q said

I raise a brow.

"You should be with Junior," I said. "As part of the agreement you have."

Q snickers folding his arms.

"Oh, he's close by," Q said. "I have an offer for you."

I stare at Q for a great while.

"The guy who no one trusts has an offer for me?" I said. "You are kidding me."

"Well, I am being honest," Q said. "I have seen your boring life and read all of your stories; no matter their quality."

I feel a sense of pride.

"Ah,um,er," I said. "The offer."

"Right, you are an awkward girl," Q said. "I give you a gift. To be on the Enterprise for a week as an android."

"A week?" I ask.

"Yes, one week," Q said.

I rub my chin.

"A week is going to be long in this realm," I said.

"Trust me, everything is going to be in limbo until you return," Q said. "You can leave the world of Star Trek by choice after the week is up."

I blink.

"How do I leave Star Trek?" I ask.

"By dying," Q said.

I sigh.

"So..." I said. "Where do we begin?"

Q unfolds his arms.

"I thought you would never ask," Q said.

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.
