After her recital I stared at her in shock. I stared at her in silence for a
moment as she looked at me, struggling to maintain an expression of calm
indifference.
She failed miserably.
"Seven, I . . . I don't know what to say," I managed finally. "I just- this is
a surprise. I never knew that you-"
"Loved you," she finished softly. She smiled slightly and continued with, "I
thought you would have guessed by our kiss in Cargo Bay 2."
"Yes," I replied, chuckling. "What can I say, I'm-"
Before I could finish, she was kissing me. It was totally unexpected, and my
natural instinct was to pull away but I couldn't. It was too wonderful for me to
ever want to let go of her delightful lips.
We finally broke apart to breathe, and I stared into her hazel eyes, wondering
I had never bothered to tell her.
"Seven, I . . ."
"Yes, Doctor?" she asked, barely able to contain the elation in her voice.
"I love you."
She grinned at me, the largest smile I'd ever seen her face.
A shadow crossed over her lovely features, and she asked with wavering
confidence, "Are you sure you can accept me? A Borg, an outcast, an 'Ice
Queen'?"
"Always," I answered immediately. "What do you think, I'd look down on you? Are
you mad? You're only human, Seven. You all make mistakes, have regrets. At least
you can make mistakes. Me, I'm stuck as a Hologram, perfect in every way."
She laughed, saying, "No, you're not." She moved to kiss me, stroking my hair.
"You're only human."

I See I bleed and I bruise
Oh, but what's it to you
I'm only Human on the inside
And if looks could deceive
Make it hard to believe
I'm only human on the inside
I crash and I burn
Maybe someday you'll learn
I'm only human on the inside
I stumble I fall
Baby, under it all
I'm only human on the inside

And the damage is done
Well there's blood in these veins
And I cry when in pain
I'm only human on the inside
And if looks could deceive
Make it hard to believe
I'm only human on the inside
I crash and I burn
Maybe someday you'll learn
I stumble I fall
Baby, I do it all
I'm only human on the inside/I
