Chapter 4

Turquoise got onto the shuttle last. She was running a bit late due to the fact that she was trying to cover up the bruise that was on the side of her face that the cadet had given to her. But she couldn't get it to cover up. She wore her gray uniform with no cap because she couldn't stand wearing the cap nor more than anyone else. She had tied her dirty blonde hair back into a low ponytail revealing the blue earrings that she had on that dangled down to her shoulders.

"Waiting for something, Cap?" The shuttle pilot asked Captain Pike.

Captain Pike let out a sigh. He looked at Turquoise.

She shrugged her shoulders. "Don't look at me. I don't know what goes through his brain." She said as she began to look for a seat to take among the cadets. It was true she really didn't know what went through her brother's mind most of the time. The only time that she did was when Jim was protecting her and that was the only time that she knew what he was thinking.

"No. Guess not." He said climbing into the flight. He looked out the window and saw Jim riding up. "Hold her a second…" He got up out of his seat and walked past Turquoise.

She blinked a few times. She realized that her brother was coming. She laughed lightly. She knew that Pike had done something impossible. He had gotten Jim to join Starfleet even when she had tried her hardest to get him to join and so did George.

"Four years? I'm gonna do it in three." Jim said getting into the shuttle. He saw his sister and winked at her and gave her a smart ass cheeky smile.

Turquoise shook her head. The little cheeky bastard was probably thinking that this was going to be fairly easy and she knew that Jim was going to have a hard time in some of the courses and she knew it too. Meaning that she was probably going to end up helping him with some of the classes. Meaning that she was going to have a lot more work on her plate than a little bit. Then just teaching this time.

He felt anger rise in him when he saw the bruise decorating the side of her face from the cadet that had hit her from his fight the night before. He felt bad for even getting her involved in one of his fights. He saw Uhura and the cadets that he had gotten into the fight with. "At ease, Gentlemen." He looked at Uhura. "Never did get that first name."

"And you never will." She said with a smile. Uhura wasn't going to give Jim her first name. She wasn't into him. She was more interested in getting back to school and learning more.

"Oh come off of it Uhura." Turquoise said, looking at her. She was tired of Jim flirting with Uhura trying to get her first name. Uhura happened to be a sweet girl and happened to be one of her students that happened to be in one of her classes.

Uhura looked at her with wide eyes. It was Ms. Kirk, her teacher of all people snapping at her. She had to show signs of respect or she would get into some trouble when she got back to the academy and she didn't want that.

"Quit it Jim. She's not interested in you Jim. So leave her alone. You did good, Uhura." She said, rolling her eyes, Jim took a seat not too far from his sister.

Jim smirked knowing that Turquoise was having enough of the flirting and she wasn't really having a good morning. He pursed his lips together slightly in concern of what his sister was thinking.

"Sorry Ma'am." Uhura apologized.

Turquoise shook her head. "It's fine Uhura."

Jim buckled up as the shuttle began to rise. He was really going to have to make sure that his sister had gotten some coffee into her once they got into the academy.

"Are you people deaf? I told you I don't need a doctor, dammit! I am a doctor!" A male shouted as he was being pushed.

"You need to find a seat." The flight attendant said.

"I had one in the bathroom, Darlin' with no windows." The man said, trying to go back to where he was going prior.

"Sir, for your own safety."

"I suffer from aviophobia, case you don't understand big words it means fear of dying in something that flies."

"Sit down or I will make you sit down do you hear me. Right Now."

The two of them glared at one another.

He dropped into the seat next to Jim.

The ship tilts a little bit to one side and the man grips his armrests pale and sweating and he glances at Jim. "I might throw up on you."

Turquoise tried not to laugh. It wouldn't be the first time that someone had thrown up on Jim. When she had turned 21 she had thrown up all over Jim. That was after Jim needed to get her mind off of something that she needed to keep her mind off of permanently or it would ruin her forever if she kept thinking about it.

"I think these things are pretty safe." Jim said, looking over at his sister for some advice hoping that he was right about what he was saying. Hoping that he was true to his word.

Turquoise nodded her head at what he said.

"Don't pander to me, kid. One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in thirteen seconds. Solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. Hell, some of the damn passengers are blue. And wait'll till you're sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles, see if you're still so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding…. space is disease and danger, wrapped in darkness and silence." The man said, looking at Jim with narrowed eyes.

"Hate to break this to you, but Starfleet operates in space." Jim told him, looking at him.

"Yeah, well my ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce, I got nowhere to go but up. Leonard McCoy." He said introducing himself to Jim.

"Jim Kirk… you really gonna throw up?"


Turquoise shook her head as her brother had made a new friend. At least Jim was going to get along with someone. Three years hopefully was going to be easy on her brother and maybe he was going to make it through his degree like he had told Pike. Maybe he would be able to be an officer like her. That was the only thing that she could hope for. Just maybe things would be able to work out. Maybe just maybe everything would work out in the end.


This is the end of Chapter 4. I hope that you guys enjoyed this chapter. I tried my best with writing it. Please leave a review and let me know what you think. Reviews keep me going when it comes to writing. I'll try to update soon with the next chapter. Until next time.
