**** Thy shall not do harm
The Doctor pressed the call button to Lieutenant Paris’ quarters and the doors opened. He stepped inside and saw Tom Paris sitting on his couch reading over some PADDS . “ You wanted to talk to me , Lieutenant ?” The Doctor asked.
“ Yes.” Tom muttered. He put the PADDS down and looked the Doctor straight in the eye. “ I want to know what the hell you thought you were doing?” Tom said angrily. “ Lieutenant, I understand that you are upset..” The Doctor tried to explain but Tom cut him off.
“ No. I am way past upset. Why is it that when something involves you B’Elanna ends up involved in it? “ Tom asked. The Doctor moved his head down to look at the floor. He had a point. " And almost every time , you end up risking B'Elanna's life." Tom pointed out.
" I can't stand it when you go off
somewhere because that means I'm in charge of Sick Bay." Tom sighed. "
Lieutenant, you have the Expertise to run Sick Bay for a few days.” The
Doctor tried to explain.
The Doctor starred at him. “ That’s
what you’re worried about? Losing your wife?” The Doctor asked. “ Don’t
look so shocked.” Tom said. “ You know B’Elanna and I have been in Sick
Bay a lot of times from accidents that happened in this damn quadrant.
We still have a long journey ahead of us and there’s probably thousands
of more aliens that will end up trying to kill us all,”
“ I’m sorry , Lieutenant.” The Doctor muttered.
Tom glared at the Doctor and picked up the PADD he was reading. “ You can leave.” Tom whispered angrily. The Doctor turned around and left his quarters.
