You let out a sigh of relief as you made it out of the bridge before Data saw you. You had heard from Riker that he was looking for you but you were afraid to talk to him.

You had been avoiding Data for over a week because you had developed a huge crush on him and realized with him being an android it would never work.

Frowning you started walking towards your room, wanting nothing more with your night off than to watch movies and eat some ice cream.

"Ensign (L/n)!" A familiar voice said from behind you. You turned around slowly to face Data, both curious and afraid of why he was looking for you.

"Yes Data?" You said with a small smile.

"I wanted to talk to you. I have realized you have been avoiding me and I do not understand why." He said, sounding genuinely confused.

"I-uh haven't been avoiding you, it must just be a coincidence." You said very unconvincingly. You bit your lip hoping that your answer would satisfy Data.

"I do not believe you are telling the truth (y/n)." He told you. You stared back at him trying to find the right words to answer him.

"Well uh you're right, I did lie, but that's because I don't think you would understand the reason I've avoided you." You admitted while blushing slightly. Data stared at you as if trying to figure out what you would feel he could not understand.

"I'm not sure what you could mean." Data stated honestly. You took a deep breath and blushed even more.

"Are you alright (y/n), your face looks flushed." Data added while staring at you intently.

"I'm fine Data, the thing is, well, the reason I've been avoiding you is because I have feelings for you and I know you can't have feelings back." You finally admitted, your face as red as a tomato. Data seemed to be as surprised as he could manage at that point.

"I see." He said slowly. "I'm sorry (y/n) I know that you are an amazing person." He stopped to think again before smiling slightly. "Would you like to have dinner with me?"

"I would love to Data but are you sure, I don't want to make you uncomfortable." You said hesitantly.

"Don't worry (y/n), we already covered the fact that I don't have emotions, I could not feel uncomfortable even if I wanted to." Data said matter of factly to you. You smiled before walking towards he rec. room with Data, happy to be talking to him once again.

I'm so sorry this is short, I struggled with writing Data a little bit. Let me know if you have any requests!
