A drabble coda to "Ascension."

No dough, no foul.

Thanks to Jerie for making it possible.

It seems like every time I meet someone new, (1) one of us is unconscious, (2) one of us is an alien, and (3) the alien has the technology to show me exactly how it feels about me. I try not to merge my essence with a guy on the first date, but it can be hard to get that "no" across when one of you is unconscious.

Orlin knew what he was doing when he turned himself into a normal, non-mergable human being. Sometimes the whole truth is just too much information - it's not romance without a little mystery.
