DS9: Kira/Ezri, drabble; Rated PG; Bad Character Title Challenge
"I came to check on you," Kira said as she stepped into Ezri's quarters.
Ezri was lying in bed surrounded by tissues and padds. Her nose was red and her face was slightly puffy.
"I'm still here," Ezri said wryly. Her voice was stuffy and deeper than it normally was. "You'd think with all our medical knowledge we could cure a cold."
"I've got a cure." She winked.
Ezri laughed. "I hardly think that *you* are the cure for the common cold."
"Maybe not," Kira conceded, unfastening her shirt, "but I can take your mind off of it for awhile."
