Subject: New story, ‘Love Spell’

Summary: <Paris, Torres> After dating for a few months, tragedy strikes
for B’Elanna Torres

LOVE SPELL
By: Lauren Taylor

The ship was being attacked, as far as B’Elanna Torres could
tell. They’d lost communication with the bridge very quickly. She was on
the top story of engineering, working on getting the most they could out
of the shields. Beside her was Lt. Jen Franklin, who was monitering the
ship’s status, and reporting whenever something went wrong, usually every
few seconds.
“Lieutenant!” she yelled to Torres, “There’s a plasma leak behind your
console!”
B’Elanna tried to work a few more seconds before it burst, but she was
too late. The console burst, throwing B’Elanna against the railing behind
her, and flying over the edge to the ground below.
“Lieutenant, are you alright?” Carey asked her as he leaned down over
her.
She tried to get up, but found it impossible. She took a few deep
breaths, and looked up at him.
“I can’t move.” she told him quietly.
******************************************************
The attack had ended, in victory for Voyager. B’Elanna had lost
consciousness just after revealing the frightening news to Carey, and was
now sleeping in sickbay.
Tom Paris had raced to sickbay the second he heard that something
had happened to B’Elanna. They had been dating for a few months, and was
planning on proposing to her the next day. He made it to the doctor, who
calmly explained the devastating occurences. Tom sat down in the chair in
the office, and took some deep breaths, seeming to be on the verge of
tears. The doctor left the office, and walked to B’Elanna’s bed,
hypospray in hand. He pressed it into her neck, and she woke up. She
tried to sit up, but barely even move her head.
“What happened?” she asked, fearing the worst.
“You took a rather nasty fall in engineering.” the doctor explained, “You
sustained a very serious spinal cord injury, beyond my abilities to
repair. I’m afraid that you are paralyzed.” he told the paniced woman.
