Spock regarded the time evenly as she concluded the compilation of her daily notes. Two days prior, she had spoke to Christine Chapel (Non-Native) concerning the baking of snack foods, cookies specifically. The end of Beta shift had occurred precisely two minutes prior, and thus the afternoon had begun. Without pause, Spock pulled up the intraship communications tab on her PADD and entered a quick missive to Nurse Chapel.

Communication to Nurse Chapel, Non-native: ([livejournal.com profile] originalchapel)


Nurse Chapel,

If you are currently free from prior obligations, I propose that now would be an ideal time to engage in the activity of baking.

Please contact me in reference to this proposal,
Spock.

Spock,

Now would be a perfect time. I'll meet you in the galley - the kitchen staff are off this afternoon, so we'll have it all to ourselves.

Christine

Nurse Chapel,

Most convenient. I shall meet you there, presently.

Christine entered the galley to find Spock already there, standing motionless by the door. How long had the Vulcan been waiting for her?

She smiled in greeting. "Hello, Spock. Any more trouble from that allergy flare-up?"

"None," Spock answered evenly and inclined her head as Christine entered the galley. It had occurred to the Vulcan to, perhaps, lay out the instruments of their activity. It was unfortunate that she did not know, specifically, what they were.

"I was uncertain what would be required," Spock prefaced, "I apologize, I should have researched what, statistically, is most utilized in this activity."

From: [identity profile] headnursechapel.livejournal.com
Christine shook her head, dismissing Spock's apology.

"It's no trouble," she assured her. "Figuring out where the spatulas are hiding is half the fun." She smiled at Spock. "Why don't you get out the eggs, milk and butter, for starters, and I'll see if I can find the mixing bowls?"

Date: 2010-01-07 06:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] science-blues.livejournal.com
"Of course," Spock agreed and moved toward the large refrigeration units. The door slid open cleanly and Spock stepped in to retrieve the ingredients. The eggs were kept in large cartons and the milk and butter in a separate section. It didn't take long to locate all three and Spock returned to the main Galley. The door slid shut behind her.

"I hope these quantities will be sufficient," Spock related placidly as she placed them atop the counter nearest to Christine.

Christine had managed to find not only the mixing spoons and bowls, but the measuring spoons and cups as well. She'd arranged them on the counter before her.

"That should be plenty," she said, her lips quirking as she glanced at the huge carton of eggs and the gallon of milk. "Now it's very simple - this part is just math." She'd brought the recipe for Snickerdoodles along with her on her PADD, and she quickly jotted down the quantities of the wet ingredients on a scrap of paper and handed it to Spock.

"Just measure these out and add them all together into the bowl," she instructed, "and I'll do the same with the dry ingredients. Then we'll mix them together." She smiled brightly at Spock. "And of course, if you need any help, I'll be happy to give it."

From: [identity profile] science-blues.livejournal.com
"I should be able to accomplish this task," Spock responded evenly and took the slip of paper. The instructions were simple and the amounts significantly smaller than the quantity she'd brought from the refrigeration unit. Spock cracked the eggs into the bowl, followed with the butter, and then the milk.

Mixing them together was significantly more difficult than Spock had anticipated, however. The butter was troublesome, sliding as she applied pressure to it. Eventually, Spock managed to break it into sections and the mixture came together. Once it had been mixed appropriately, Spock turned and regarded Christine.

"Will this suffice?"

They probably should have softened the butter first. There was a reason why Christine was a nurse, and not a cook.

While Spock had been working, Christine had been focused on finding and mixing the dry ingredients - sugar, flour, cinnamon...She'd just stirred in the baking soda when Spock spoke, and Christine turned to her and smiled at the result of Spock's efforts.

"It looks wonderful," she told her. "Let me just double-check the recipe." She frowned as she glanced over it. "Oh, of course - the vanilla. Let's see..." She glanced around the kitchen, finally spotting a bottle of vanilla extract on a high shelf.

Date: 2010-01-07 07:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] science-blues.livejournal.com
It was only logical that the taller of them, Spock, should move to retrieve the forgotten ingredient. Without conscious consideration, she set the bowl aside and reached to acquire the bottle.

The bottle of flavoring was perched just far enough into the alcove of the shelf that it required Spock stretch to grasp it properly. Once her fingers were around the exterior of the bottle, Spock tipped it back to press it against her palm. Unfortunately, whoever had replaced the bottle to its designated location had failed to properly secure the lid. As she tipped it back, the lid parted from the bottle and the liquid inside poured out in a steady stream.

Spock pulled away quickly as the liquid contacted her and very nearly dropped the bottle as she did so. The moment passed as Spock stepped back and the Vulcan looked down to regard the state of her uniform. The alcohol based flavoring agent would, undeniably, ruin the grey weave of her jacket.

Date: 2010-01-07 07:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] headnursechapel.livejournal.com
Christine watched anxiously as Spock moved to retrieve the vanilla, the Vulcan's uniform stretching tight across her backside as she stretched up to reach the bottle.

She'd been prepared to catch it should the bottle slip out of Spock's fingers and fall, but she hadn't expected the liquid itself to spill. Christine gasped in horror as the lid dropped to the floor and Spock's uniform jacket was soaked in vanilla.

Spock started back from the counter and stared down at her uniform, the bottle of vanilla forgotten in her hand, and Christine moved forward immediately.

"Oh, no!" she cried. "Oh, Spock. We'd better get that off and rinse it right away, to prevent it from staining."

Date: 2010-01-07 08:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] science-blues.livejournal.com
Spock might have objected to this course of action, given that the synthetic fibers of the uniform were likely ruined, but the liquid was rapidly soaking in and Spock had no desire to replace her undergarments as well. She stripped the jacket quickly and Christine took it from her. The blonde moved to the nearest sink and anxiously ran the fabric under water. Meanwhile, Spock picked up one of the stray towels and attempted to wipe the remainder of the liquid from her skin. It was most unpleasant.

"My apologies, I hope there is sufficient vanilla remaining," Spock commented almost disdainfully as she folded the dirtied towel.

Date: 2010-01-07 08:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] headnursechapel.livejournal.com
Christine turned off the water, leaving the wet jacket in the sink. It probably was ruined, but she'd done the best she could.

"We'll only need a little bit," she replied, turning to look at Spock.

The Vulcan stood unselfconsciously next to the counter, her posture straight and her gaze level. She seemed completely composed and at ease, despite the fact that she had, apparently, been wearing nothing underneath her uniform jacket but a decidedly illogical black lace bra.

Spock's motionless stance and calm expression reminded Christine, suddenly, inexorably, of her own Spock, always so stoic. She stopped, lost for a moment.

Then she realized that she was staring at the woman's barely covered breasts, and blushed, turning away quickly and focusing on the vanilla.

"Just a little bit," she repeated, fumbling for a teaspoon, "and then we'll mix these two together."

Hands barely shaking, she poured vanilla into the teaspoon and added it to the mix.

"That is fortunate," Spock replied as Christine moved and poured the vanilla into the wet ingredients. The blonde seemed uncomfortable, though the reddish blush across her cheeks did not indicate it as an objectionable discomfort. However, given their last personal encounter and its abrupt ending, Spock did not comment.

Instead, the Vulcan turned her attention back to the bowls. They were reasonably sized and, it occurred to her, it might be difficult to maneuver the two bowls single-handedly.

"The bowls are quite cumbersome," Spock commented, "If one is to be added to the other, without another apparatus involved, it would be sensible for one of us to pour and the other to scrape the remaining contents of the bowl."

Date: 2010-01-07 08:11 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] headnursechapel.livejournal.com
Christine stirred the vanilla in, keeping her eyes on the bowl as her blush faded and she regained control of herself. If Spock felt comfortable baking cookies in her underwear, then Christine would be all right with it, too. She was a nurse, after all, and no stranger to the human body.

Or the Vulcan one.

Spock was speaking again. Christine blinked, processing her words. "Yes, I think that would be best," she agreed. "We'll pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones, so the flour doesn't get everywhere." She set the spoon aside and picked up the bowl. "If you'll hold the other one steady?"

Date: 2010-01-07 08:31 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] science-blues.livejournal.com
Spock set her hands on the sides of the dry ingredient bowl and watched as Christine lifted her own and poured the viscous mixture into the flour. As the contents of Christine's bowl were reduced to a slow trickle, Spock lifted a flexible spatula from the counter and offered it to her.

Date: 2010-01-07 08:47 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] headnursechapel.livejournal.com
Christine took the spatula without really looking, unconscious of her fingers brushing against Spock's as she concentrated on not allowing any of the mixture to spill onto the counter.

"Thank you," she said, scraping the sides of the bowl clean and setting it down before offering the spatula back to Spock. "Can you mix that together while I get the sugar mixture prepared?"
