A/N: The not so nice banter between Chekov and Genevieve.

"Grognorth! Where are you?" Genevieve called searching her room over again. When it was quite obvious he wasn't there she decided to go see if anyone had seen him wander off. He had a habit of doing that now that he had hit the toddler stage. He was nearly twice as big as he had been when Genevieve had first found him. She went to sick bay first.

"Hey T, have you seen Grognorth? He seems to have escaped again." Genevieve said watching T fill out a report.

"Nope, he hasn't been through here yet. No t enough blood right now I suppose," T replied getting up to go file the report.

"T that's disgusting," Genevieve said scrunching up her nose. T shrugged.

"He's a carnivore and a scavenger when he isn't fed. He'll search for blood to find something to eat."

"I know that T, I am a paleontologist to a degree," Gen said. "I'll see you later. I've got to find him before someone like Scotti or Chekov does."

"Good luck," T called after her. Genevieve decided she would go ask Kquew next. After all, Grognorth liked her because she fed him Cheetos. Of course who knew if that was good for him or not…

"Hey, Kquew, turn off your vaporizers will you?" Genevieve asked before getting close to Kquew's door. "I'm looking for Grognorth."

"He's not here, he was following a trail of Cheese Puffs though down by Tommy's room. Maybe she knows where he is," Kquew answered over her intercom. Genevieve shook her head laughing to herself.

"Thanks, Kquew," she replied walking off to find Tommy. She found her much quicker than she had anticipated for she was staring down the corridor as though she had seen something particularly strange. Indeed, there was a trail of Cheese Puff crumbs on the floor.

"What is this?" Genevieve asked.

"I don't know, but Grognorth seemed very content to eat the Cheese Puffs Chekov dropped when he missed his mouth."

"Chekov…?" Genevieve began then she glared. "We're about to have a dead Russian sent to med bay," she said taking off down the hall. It was quite some time before she came to the end of the trail. The cheese puff trail ended at a metal cage containing…

"Grognorth!" Genevieve shouted setting him free as he gave a pathetic chirp. He snuggled against her in thanks. Genevieve glared.

"This is war," she whispered angrily. She picked up Grognorth and went to go find Tommy again.

"I need your help," she said promptly.

"With what?' Tommy asked eyeing her rather suspiciously.

"With revenge," Genevieve replied. Tommy's eyes lit up immediately.

"I am so in," she said and the two began to plot.

Several hours later…

"Has anyone seen Ensign Chekov?" Kirk questioned the bridge. Everyone shook their heads or replied with a 'No, sir,"

"That is highly unusual for Ensign Chekov, Captain," Spock said.

"I know, I suppose that means we should go look for him,' Kirk sighed getting up from his seat.

He went to Chekov's quarters first. He found Chekov there, but he didn't move to help him.

"Please help," Chekov begged from his ceiling. Kirk snorted.

"How in the world did you end up there?" he asked. Chekov glared as his cheeks grew red.

"Ask her," he spat. Kirk looked behind him. Several people seemed to have followed him to the poor boy's room; including all the interns known to have tormented him.

"Any of you hers care to explain this?" Kirk asked. The interns burst out laughing hysterically. Kirk rolled his eyes and sighed. He would get nowhere with them.

"Sulu, help me get him down." Kirk said climbing on Chekov's bed. He then proceeded to rip off a strip of duct tape.

"AHHHHHHHH!" Chekov screamed. "Why did you pull so hard?" he demanded.

"You aren't naked under all this tape are you?" Kirk asked.

"Oh my," Sulu said glancing up.

"No, they just took my shirt off!" Chekov shouted quickly. Kirk grinned.

"I would take that as a compliment my dear ensign. They obviously thought you were highly attractive and wanted to check out your abs," Kirk replied. The interns suddenly began to choke on their laughter. Kirk winked at Chekov.

"What I can't understand is why they would hide such an adorable figure under a roll of duct tape," Kirk continued. Chekov blushed crimson.

"He trapped Grognorth in a cage," Kquew blurted. "Ouch!" she yelled as three elbows hit her gut. "What was that…? Oh, I wasn't supposed to say that, was I?" she said sheepishly. Her friends rolled their eyes.

"Well, what's done is done," Kirk said as he and Sulu continued to rip tape from Chekov. Chekov screamed each time a piece came off. "On the upside this made for one entertaining afternoon break."
