Tara continued to watch her closely. Psylocke seemed to ever so slightly shift uncomfortably. "I want to know why all these questions. Seems that many people are taking an interest in me for one reason or another. I just want to know what your angle is." Tara laughed freely.It was easy to understand Psylocke's suspicion. "Believe it or not I don't have an angle." "I don't." "Allright then, what would it take to convince you?" "I don't want to be convinced. I just want you to lay off already!" "I see," Tara began, "So you wish to live your life alone..never talking to anyone...not even your 'friend'." "I didn't say that. I just don't like it when people I don't know go snooping around my life." Tara shook her head, "But you offered." Psylocke stood abruptly. "If you'll excuse me, I'd like to return to my quarters now." Tara could almost feel Topaz's trained reaction behind her. She was sure the body guard was prepared for any reaction from the Captain. She smiled inwardly. She had hit some hot points and was now getting to know Psylocke better than she had hoped. It usually took two or three conversations to reach this point, a point of such strong emotional responses. This was good. Very good. But it was time for her to back down if she did not want to make an enemy of the woman, "Please sit down." Tara stated, calm and friendly, almost apologetic. "Whatever kind of game are you trying to play with me, just quit it." She refused to sit. "I am not playing a game." Tara replied, then stood,"I am sorry, please accept my apologies." Tara spread her hands to the side and bowed her head from the shoulders. Her hands remained at her side when she lifted her head back up. Psylocke, slowly sat back down, keeping her eyes on Tara.
