Ive decided I dont like the title, or where I was going in this story.
But, I have a better title and a better song for the

Tell Him 3/?

Seven stared at herself in the mirror. She was so lost. What should she
do? She had found that the doctor would be attending the part alone. She
also found that she would be too. In fact, Tom had said he was thinking
about not going. He had to go. She had to tell him how she felt, and
what better time to. She listened to the song she had picked and
realized she needed a duet partner. Who.....hmmm....how about Janeway?
"Seven to Captain Janeway."
"Yes Seven."
"Would you consider singing a duet with me at Mr Paris' party?"
"Sure....why not. When should we practice?"
"How about in 15 mins?"
"Sure....Ill meet you in your alcove."
"That is then."
Then she broke the comm between them and began preparing for that

Seven had just finished replicating her dress when the Captain entered.
"Hello Seven. So, whats this little song of yours?"
"Here, let me play it for you...."
Seven and the Captain worked on the song into the afternoon.

The doctor sat in his chair at his desk. What to do. Would Seven want to
see him there? WOuld it make her uncomfortable? He sighed heavily. Then
Tom walked through the door.
"Hey doc."
"Hello Mr Paris."
"So, you comin to the party?"
"I highly doubt it."
"Aww doc, you have to. Its gonna be fun, plus you have to see Seven
"Oh, yes I had forgotten about that. Well, I suppose so then. Ill be
"Good....wear a tux....its kinda formal."
The doctor nodded and went back to staring at his padd lifelessly.
Tom then walked out of sickbay to get ready.

At the Party.......

The party looked as if it were held on an outdoor patio of a
beach-house.. It had lights strung up all over and lanterns. The scenery
was of the ocean and the beach.
There was laughter and a humm of voices in the air. The clink of glasses
could be heard. Tom could be seen running around checking on everyone.
"Doc! You made it!"
"OF course, I said I would come. But, Im not so sure I should be here.
Mayeb I should go."
"Aw, doc, of course not..."
Then the humm of voices stopped as Seven walked onto the patio.
The doctor had to remind himself to breathe, even though he didnt
require it.
His mouth fell open and if he had a real heart he was sure it would have
She wore a long form fitting white dress with sparkles. It plunged low
in the front and in the back. Her hair fell on her shoulders and she
seemed to glow. She looked like an angel.
With a couple of whistles and Tom's yell of whoo hoo.....the humm began
She walked down the steps to greet Tom and glanced at the doctor and
kept moving towards the Captain.
*She barely even glanced at me*
"Captain Janeway....are you ready?"
"Yes I believe I am."
The two walked to the center of the patio.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, Seven and I would like to present you with a
song. In practicing this song I have found some hidden things. Maybe one
of you can see some hidden meanings as well."
the music Began to play and Seven began to sing.

"I'm scared
So afraid to show I care
Will he think me weak
If I tremble when I speak
Oooh - what if
There's another one he's thinking of
Maybe he's in love
I'd feel like a fool
Life can be so cruel
I don't know what to do "


"I've been there
With my heart out in my hand
But what you must understand
You can't let the chance
To love him pass you by

"Tell him
Tell him that the sun and moon
Rise in his eyes
Reach out to him
And whisper
Tender words so soft and sweet
Seven:Ill Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Janeway:Love will be the gift you give yourself "


"Touch him
With the gentleness you feel inside
Your love can't be denied
The truth will set you free
You'll have what's mean to be
All in time you'll see "


"I love him
Of that much I can be sure
I don't think I could endure
If I let him walk away
When I have so much to say "

"Tell him
Tell him that the sun and moon
Rise in his eyes
Reach out to him
And whisper
Tender words so soft and sweet
Janeway:Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Seven:Love will be the gift you give yourself "

Seven:"Love is light that surely glows
In the hearts of those who know
It's a steady flame that grows "
Janeway:"Feed the fire with all the passion you can show "
Seven:"Tonight love will assume its place "
Janeway:"This memory time cannot erase"
Both:"Your faith will lead love where it has to go

Tell Him
Tell Him that the Sun and Moon Rise in His Eyes
Reach out to him
And Whisper
Whisper words so soft and sweet
Janeway:Hold Him Close to Feel His Heart Beat
Seven:Love will be the gift you Give Yourself

Both:Never let him go

A single tear left Seven's cheek and she looked up at the doctor. She
found he was near tears as well.
After the applause Seven walked over to the bar and sat. The doctor sat
down next to her.
"Can I buy you a drink miss?"
Seven smiled.
"What is the relevance of you buying me a drink? that gesture is usually
the first step into getting a woman in bed is it not? You get her senses
dulled, manipulate her, and then take her to bed."
The doctor chuckled.
"Nevermind the-"
The doctor was cut off by Seven.
"I believe Ill take a earth drink called a Shirley Temple."
She gave the doctor a daring eye.
He caught her drift.
"So, you from around here?"
"No, actually. Are you?"
"so we have something in common."
"Yes we you mind if I ask you something?"
"go ahead."
"Are you attached to anyone special?"
"Well, yes If you must know. He is a very kind and caring person. He
takes care of me and only does what is best for me. Me looks out for me
and has helped me to understand myself better. I have come to understand
him as is my best friend."
"Ah, I see. So, hes just your friend huh? I meant romantically."
"You misunderstood me. Yes, he is my friend. yet...yet..."
"I am afraid to say..."
"Dont be afraid, tell me."
"Yet....I love him."
"Do you?"
"Yes, very much."
"Oh Seven. I love you too."
He reached over and kissed her and she kissed him back passionately. The
humm again stilled and the two parted blushing. He held her hand and
they looked over at everyone.
"Can we help you?"
Everyone laughed at the humm of voices began again.
She then became very aware or the doctor's hand upon hers and she
"Are you ok Seven?"
He took his hand off hers and she clasped it back into its origional
He smiled. She reached up to touch his face and he shuddered from the
feelings she envoked in him. They kissed again, this one crackling with
electricity. She wrapped her arms around the doctor's neck and looked up
into his eyes teasingly.
"So, now that Ive had my drink what do you plan on doing once you're
done manipulating me?Which, if I may say, you are doing very well
at."Her voice grew husky at the last.
The doctor felt chills go up his spine.
"Hmm...why dont you tell me?"
She kissed him hungrily then and he knew the answer.
They held hands and walked out of the holodeck.

"did she tell him?"Belanna asked Janeway.
"oh, I think so."said Janeway
Tom walked up.
"Well, it seems the doctor and Seven will be busy the rest of the
"Tom..."Belanna started.
"Im shutting up...."
They all laughed as the night came to a close. And to think all she had
to do was tell him.

Like it? Yes,no.....let me know!!
