Previously on Something's Not Right....
The door opened and Hamura stepped out. "It's fine Haru. Come in if you must." They turned and headed back in. Haru slipped in first just in case. Soral told him to watch Hamura until the integration was complete and nobody seemed to know how long that would take.
T’Lanna followed Hamura giving them a curious look. “What’s going on with you Hamura? Oriana came to see me because she was worried about you.”
Hamura looked over at Oriana who was blushing. "I am fine." They walked over to the replicator "Drinks?"
“Nothing for me, thank you” T’Lanna smiled warmly. “So just what is going on Hamura?”
And now the continuation...
"You are Vulcan, you should understand the need for solitude."
Oriana found her voice and chimed in, "Then why the Vulcan healers? Why were you on Vulcan and came back flanked by healers?"
Hamura turned and looked at both women. "The last mission what quite trying on us all."
T’Lanna nodded. “It was indeed.” She sighed. “Oriana mentioned healers? Does this have something to do with your link to Soral? He almost died, as did you.”
"In a way."
T’Lanna sighed. “There are times I wish you’d give me a straight answer, and now is one of them. As you said I’m part Vulcan, I understand the need for privacy but you can’t avoid talking about it forever.” She paused. “What’s happened Hamura?”
"It's Soral's story to tell. Suffice it to say that I am well, recovered, and integrated. I just need a few more days to gain my strength. "
T’Lanna nodded. “Very well that can be organised for you. As far as Soral goes I’ll have to speak with him when he returns.” She looked between Oriana and Hamura. “Is there anything either of you need to talk about while I’m here?”
Hamura was about to say no but Oriana beat them to it saying, "Yes. I...want to talk about us."
Hamura raised an eyebrow. "Well this should be interesting."
T’Lanna smiled and nodded. “Okay Oriana, how’s about you start and I’ll jump in if needed.”
Oriana gave a nod. "Very well. Why are you avoiding me?"
Hamura looked at Vali, "Did I not just explain?"
"No! Even before that. You moved to senior officer quarters and you asked me to come with you and I said not yet and you have been avoiding me."
Hamura sighed. He looked at Vali. "Little help here?"
T’Lanna smiled and nodded. “Hamura did just tell us that they have been here recovering, though...” she looked at Hamura. “Given the relationship between the two of you, you should have explained what was happening to Oriana.”
"Perhaps." They studied Vali. "You are a fascinating person Counselor. I was able to do a little downloading of data and perhaps you would be interested in your mirror self?"
T’Lanna looked surprised. “I never gave thought to my mirror self. I can’t say I’m not interested.” She nodded. “Do tell.”
Hamura held up a data Padd. "Here are all the answers." He handed it to her. "To view when you wish."
Oriana looked at Hamura. She gasped. "Counsellor... I think we need to leave."
T’Lanna looked towards Oriana in surprise, but knew when not to question. “If you insist Oriana” She held onto the PADD. “Thank you Hamura.”
Hamura bowed. "You are most welcome. I will be well for duty soon."
They watched Oriana and the counselor hurry out. Sighing they walked over to the mirror and stared at the image in front of them. “Well you knew that she would figure it out. She’s smart not matter what universe she’s in.”
They had to smile. Padding over to the sofa they sat and looked at Haru who had remained silent through all this. “I suppose I should slowly start getting back to work.”
Haru sighed. “I don’t know…we should talk to Soral.”
Hamura gave a nod. “Agreed.” He looked at Haru proud of his friend for working through so much. “But first you need rest. You and Mac have been with me during all this and it was no picnic.”
Haru scrubbed his hand down his face and let out a bone weary sigh. “You’re right about that. It’s been…. Interesting.”
Hamura smiled. “For you and me both. Now I think I’ll try get some sleep. Tomorrow is another day.”
Haru gave a nod and headed out. He needed some sleep too but first he’d call Soral.

Oriana was out the door and down the hall quicker then lighting.
T’Lanna quickly followed Oriana. “Oriana... wait!” She caught her up as they turned the corner out of sight of Hamura’s Quarters. “What’s going on? Why did you leave so fast?”
"That's not Hamura...at least I don't think so... their eyes are different."
T’Lanna looked at Oriana in surprise. “Why didn’t I...?” She shook it off. “Right I have to talk to Soral about this.”
She gave a nod. "Agreed." She looked back towards the door. "I wish I knew what was going on."
T’Lanna nodded. “You and me both Oriana. That’s why I’m going to find out.”
