Eighteen Earth Years Ago

"Welcome aboard, um, Mother? Is that correct?" asked Captain Tom Lawrence eyeing one very pregnant Elle adorned in her Egyptian attire. "Please keep your head down as you exit the helo!" he shouted in an attempt to be heard over the roar of the Black Hawk's engines, the wind, and other noises on the ship's deck. He extended a nervous hand to help the beautiful but deadly woman onto the massive aircraft carrier. "I have been ordered to personally make sure your stay aboard my vessel is a pleasant one."

"Excellent, Captain," Elle responded. "However, I first require a shower and some alone time with Gary Schmidt to alleviate this body's torturous urges."

The naval officer shot a funny look at the CIA agent.

Gary shrugged his shoulders wearing a perplexed look on his face. "Don't ask me, sir. I was told to do what she asked just like you."

Julius walked by, placing his hands together as if he were praying and looked skyward in gratitude.

The captain raised an eyebrow. "Right...very well, follow me to your quarters."

Julius nodded to an obviously armed sailor holding a hatch door open for them.

"Then we will go meet your Chancellor? The one who rules you?" Elle asked stepping into the ship's interior.

"No, not yet," the captain said, skillfully leading the odd trio further into the aircraft carrier's belly, navigating them through one turn after another and down several flights of stairs. "For that matter, we don't have a singular ruler like your Chancellor, ma'am. We elect our leaders. They don't rule over us, although some of them think they do." The captain stepped back from a narrow doorway, swinging his hand around in front of him, indicating everyone should pass through. "Please watch your heads."

Elle looked at the man curiously as the group stopped in a sparse hallway containing two metallic doors. "That's very strange. How do you get anything done?"

"I sometimes wonder myself, Mother." The captain replied, shaking off the odd sound of the woman's name. "Well, here we are, the Senior Officer's quarters. I ran them out for your visit," the captain said, glaring at the embarrassed CIA agent walking past him into the empty room. "When you are, um, alleviated, have Gary contact me and we will have dinner in the officer's wardroom. Oh, and please, try not to be too loud would you?"

"I cannot guarantee that, Captain Lawrence, however I will try to keep Gary's mouth busy," Elle said, closing the door with a grin.

Julius smiled at the captain. "Don't look at me, I am going to use this opportunity to get some fucking sleep, even if it is only for a couple of hours. Trust me, you don't know what it's like," the German said and closed his door.

"What the fuck is going on around here?" Tom wondered to himself as he marched off toward the bridge.

...

Elle stepped from the small shower, water dripping from her body. She located a towel hanging from a conveniently placed towel rack and began drying herself off. The Arcturan felt someone watching her and noticed Gary the CIA agent was staring at her naked reflection in a mirror.

"Seriously, what am I doing in here, lady?" he asked.

Elle smiled and dropped the towel to the wet tile floor. She slowly walked into the adjacent room and forcefully pushed the man back onto the small bed. "Experiencing something wonderful," she said loosening his pants and lowering herself before him.
