Cocktails and Denial

Daniel had waited for what seemed like hours for Vala to wake up, not wanting to wake her prematurely. The past couple of weeks must have taken their toll on her and it was unusual for her to sleep so soundly, she was best left. He never mentioned that her sleep was fitful at best, that was something else best left, at least for now.

"Good morning!" Vala chirped, appearing in the kitchen with a beach bag slung over her shoulder, clad in bikini top, tiny denim shorts and flip-flops. Daniel had just replied to River via the tablet to tell her he probably wouldn't be able to make it today to plan the dig, he'd spend the day with Vala - she needed him more right now.

The vision before him was far different to what he'd expected though. Leaning past him to the fruit bowl, Vala snapped a banana from the bunch and kissed his nose with a grin. He'd expected her to be still wracked with guilt over Adria. This reaction took him a little by surprise.

"I haven't seen daylight for two weeks, it's about time I overdosed I think." She inhaled exaggeratedly, ready for the open air and the smell of the ocean. "So I'm off to the beach!" She announced firmly.

He was waiting for the 'and so are you!'. Lying and doing nothing in the sun wasn't exactly Daniel's idea of relaxing, but if he took a book it could be quite relaxing. Not that bad an idea as ideas go, Vala.

"So you're free to go and spend your time with your archeology woman," she smiled a little fakely, and not without a hint of disdain towards River. Before he had chance to say a word, Vala was flouncing off, banana in hand and seemingly without a care in the world.

"Vala... wait." He started after her, this reaction wasn't healthy for her.

She turned and gave him a more sincere thoughtful look, apparently ready to listen.

"Look, I think you need to... I think you should..." She cut him off without a second thought.

"Have a cocktail while I'm there? Good idea, what exactly goes in a Pina Larder again?"

Vala's memory has been slowly coming back for a few days now, to the point where it's almost completely returned. Not that you'd know though; Vala's quite happy living at Daniel's house because her mental state has left her so 'vulnerable' and she intends to make it last as long as possible. So, we have a Vala, pretending to have lost her memory still, but actually remembers everything, from who she is to who Daniel is, well the whole shebang really. It's a foolproof plan, he'll continue to want to keep her close by, until her staying there becomes so routine, he won't think twice about changing anything when her memory does return.

So, memory loss considered, everything at Taxon has to remain largely unbelievable. Because she hasn't ever travelled off Earth, or met anyone or any species with powers or anything else unearthly for that matter, and yes well... We'll see how well she keeps up the façade.

After rearranging Daniel's notes pinned to the fridge for the umpteenth time, because seriously - anyone'd think he'd used a protractor - and bored with going through the files on his computer (how easy was that password to crack?), she opens the tablet up and addresses Taxon at large.

"So, I've spoken to an angel of the Lord apparently, I'm not even from Earth and I'm accustomed to inter-planetary travel. Anyone else want to regale me with their X-Files worthy stories? We might as well be up-front about the absurdity of it all."
