Shara's Personal Log

Jared’s proposal

Posted in engaged,Jared Stone by Lady Orion on November 1, 2009

I am still in shock as I write this.

Last night was our Halloween party. It was fun getting ready – I helped Morgan make food, desserts, etc.

We also decorated the Cargo Bay with spooky decorations. It was fun! I love Earth holidays. 🙂

I went dressed as Magenta from the ancient Earth movie the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Jared went as a Starfleet captain. *sigh* He looked so handsome in that uniform. And I found out that he was in StarFleet! He went to the Academy! MY Jared! *shakes her head* I can’t get over that. I can’t picture him as a cadet. *laughs*

We had a good time – music, dancing, joking around. Then Jared said he needed to leave, so he disappeared for a while.

When he came back, he handed me a small box. In it was a beautiful ring (pictured).

But what stunned me even more was when he dropped to one knee and said that I had saved his life, he trusted me with his life, and he wanted to share his life with me.

Then he asked: “Shara, will you marry me?” and held up the ring to me.

Of course, I said yes. *laughs* Once I found my voice, of course.

We will be getting married during the next shore leave. I am looking forward to this next step.


Grey The Chittermyrr

Chief Medic’s Log:

While on Prynn, I had to hide in a tree for the night in order to stay safe.
Several animals – that called themselves chittermyrrs – stayed with me and helped keep me warm during the night. I believe they were also trying to protect me.
These animals resemble a large Earth chinchilla. They have soft fur, a friendly disposition and can be quite ferocious when defending their nests or littermates.
I have also found that they are sentient beings, and they communicate with other species via telepathy.
One of them – called Grey One Who Chitters All Night Long (Grey, for short) – stowed away on my shuttle and has said he wishes to stay on board the Liberty with me.
