"I've Got a Tiger By the Tail"

DS9: Ezri/Ro Laren; Rated PG-13; Part of the Friends and Lovers Series

"Name: Ro Laren."

"I know your name, silly."

"Shhh. Current Rank: Lieutenant..."

"Does this mean I have to salute you?" Ezri giggled.

"Are you going to let me finish?"

"Sorry." She tried to look contrite but failed miserably.

"Current Post: Chief of Security, Deep Space Nine.

"Honors: Advanced Tactical Training Award of Merit, Bajoran Ribbon of Gratitude, Name listed along with those of others who were interred in Cardassian prison camps on the Occupation Memorial Wall in the capital city of…"

Ezri sat up, wrapping the covers around her chest. "I didn't know you were honored on the memorial. Why didn't you tell me?"

Ro shrugged. "Because it's not that big of a deal."

Ezri knew Ro was lying but left it alone. She snuggled back down in the bed, resting her head on Ro's shoulder so she could see the PADD Ro was reading.

"Why applicant should be captain: Headstrong, stubborn, loyal; much like the current Captain. Was a Maquis member for several years, so is not afraid of doing whatever it takes to get the job done."

"Is sleeping with me part of that 'getting the job done'?"

Ro turned her head and kissed Ezri's nose. "What do you think?"

Ezri preferred not to think too hard about that question. She gave the answer Ro wanted. "No."

"Recommendation from two other ranking officers: Captain Jean-Luc Picard states, 'An exceptional officer though sometimes she does tend to do whatever she feels is right, regardless of her orders.' Captain William Riker states, 'Ro Laren is one of the most brilliant, talented women I've ever met. Gives great sex.'"

Ezri pulled back and grabbed the PADD. "Will didn't say that!" She scanned the text.

Ro started laughing.

"You liar!" Ezri tossed the PADD aside and climbed atop Ro. "You're really not going to leave that on her desk are you?"

Ro shrugged. She reached for the sheet that was tangled around Ezri's waist. "Probably."


"I don't know. I guess because I like messing with her head." Her hands found Ezri's now-exposed breasts. "Now how about I show you some of that 'great sex' Will was talking about?"

Ezri grinned. There'd be time enough later to talk to Ro about her recent obsession with irritating Kira. She'd have to remember to bring up the parable of the boy who kept pulling the Hara cat's tail.

She moaned as Ro's tongue touched the spots along her right breast. Yeah, they'd talk later. Much, much later.
