into darkness has begun!
Through The Tears, @LIZARD
History might remember Khan as many different things. But one of the things they should know about him was how compassionate he was – especially when it came to children. Kyler was still but a child herself and he was desperate to help her. Even waking him at this hour from his sleep – when he should be grading – was a welcome thing. So he wanted to repay her. And protect her. But there was only so much he could do from this small office. A functional commander in name only, the office was really quite the small pittance in his opinion.
“Sometimes your mind wants to keep going but your body needs rest,” he nodded towards the girl on the other side of the comm link as she adjusted her top to make sure it was covering what it needed to. Sure, augments were a rather sensual people, but even Khan could accept that she was a schoolgirl who probably had some childish fantasies about him. It was common in schoolgirls with their professors, yes? At least, he had seen it depicted in films before as such. And in books. And he had seen young women throw themselves at him when he was more than some Starfleet commander.
But yes, Khan wanted to help the girl. But how? The site-to-site transwarp beaming device was still in pieces and even then it would only be good for one use. Hmm. There had to be other things he could do. Khan wasn’t exactly the best one of his siblings at … talking. Maybe if he pulled up this Leo person she wanted to speak with? There could be a three-way chat and Khan could casually pull his way out once she had calmed down? Perhaps he could offer such. In a moment.
It seemed she needed to vent, so he let her. His eyes wandered from the screen a few times because he was hacking into Starfleet records on another screen, trying to get a more complete look. Her mother’s service record. Something. Working for Marcus did have a few perks, he supposed. “It looks like the ship was attacked. She died at her post. I am unable to find records regarding your brother, but if he was aboard, I can see how he may have perished as well. Honestly, I am uncertain how anyone made it out relatively unscathed. Was your father injured, or do you know? Perhaps you were too young,” he offered once there was a bit of a break in her rambling.
But then she started saying something else. For Khan to tell him that it wasn’t the fault of the whole field of engineering. While he was a commander and her father was a mere lieutenant, that was not going to … fly. “I very much doubt I can convince him,” Khan shook his head, the sleep still lingering at the corners of his eyes as he tried to blink it away. “First of all, the two of us hardly know one another. And secondly, have you tried talking with him about it?” Of course she had. Why else would she have written that assignment for his class? Why else would she be in tears?
“You have your father’s codes?” He felt himself asking incredulously before realizing that it might sound bad that he had picked up on it. That was certainly something he could use at a later date. Depending on how things went when he enacted his plan to save his siblings. His pondering on the opportunities were dashed as she cried more. Harrison felt his fingers stretch out across the screen, as if trying to wipe them away from afar. “Do you want me to see if I can hack into the system and look for them? Perhaps my security overrides will be of use?” Why was he even offering something like this? Marcus would come down on him SO quickly! But it was worth trying.

Listening to Harrison she nodded slightly, that was true enough. She'd had points like that recently when she'd cried herself to sleep, maybe that was the same thing? She couldn't really be sure, but she didn't say anything.
Not when she was too busy adjusting her top. Kyler didn't really think anything of the fact that he leaned closer as she did so. In her mind, he was probably still trying to shake the sleep from his mind. If she was completely honest with herself, she'd admit that she had a bit of a crush on him. But then what teenager didn't have a crush on at least one of their teachers? It was like a right of passage or something. They knew nothing would come of it but still, they couldn't help but to fantasize about it.
"I don't even remember her. I just have an odd memory of something sweet and kind burnt." She managed a small laugh, "I know it sounds really stupid, but that's what I imagine her smelling like. It's all I have really, other than that picture." She breathed softly. And then somehow by some miracle, Harrison was able to give her more --- far more than she bargained for. She leaned closer to the screen reading his lips as she listened to his words. "Attacked?" She questioned. "I was only three. But Elijah he was with her and..." Kyler's voice broke as she shook her head as Harrison's words sank in. "He.. he lied to me! He said that there was an accident, that she and Elijah died in Engineering... like it was just them." At least that was how she had understood it, it wasn't as if her dad talked about her mom or brother often
All her life she had wanted answers, and now that she had them it was a heavy pill to swallow. Kyler's face was a mix of emotion now, sadness and anger. A word that would have warranted a mouthful of soap escaped her lips before she spoke again. "He's so full of shit..." Though that was little better Kyler continued, "He told me Engineering is cursed because mom died there. So by his logic the whole freakin' galaxy is cursed right I mean.. people die all the time!"
Kyler almost didn't hear what Harrison asked her, but she nodded her head slowly. "Yeah... he doesn't know." She told him. When he said that Kyler actually smiled a little as she wiped the tears from her face. "Could you... I mean if it's not too much trouble." Without hesitation she quickly sent over father's access codes. What she didn't know was that the access code she knew also controlled things for him within the ship, opening doors etc. But it was how she logged onto the PADD system and the only code she knew that could access his computer.
