Chapter 5 - Sandrine's
" I'm sorry that Harry had to leave and you're stuck here with me . " Tom said walking into the Holodeck . " I am too . " B'Elanna smiled . " Oh! That was harsh . " Tom complained then opening the doors to Sandrine's. " Hey , Tommy Boy . Long time no see , " Gaunt Gary shouted from the pool table . " And I see you brought me a present . " Gary said starring at B'Elanna who was still by the door . Tom glanced at the door then back at Gary. " Back off , alright ? " Tom warned . " It's not me you should be worried about, Tommy .
