"Put me there, then," Judy requested. "Explain to me, what happened that led you to think there's a power play here?"

Judy's incredulity remained, but she managed to force herself to a more neutral tone.

"We just had a meeting with the command staff. She left early and went down to engineering. Finally we were dismissed, and I head down to pick up a tool kit. Walking in, her goon had two members of the engineering team by the collars, and she was standing there scolding them. As if security can't do their job as well.

He made a sour face.

Judy shook her head. It sounded like everyone involved had screwed up on some level.

"First of all, let's not use loaded words like 'goon'. It's not constructive," she instructed. "Secondly, let's consider why she might've felt a need to do that. What did those two engineers do?"

"And you haven't?" Judy asked.

Three words, that was all she felt she needed to really make Sven think. He'd done similar things to what Hugo had allegedly done, hand't he?

At the same time, she heard footsteps moving down the hall. Glancing at her watch, the older woman realized that their session was almost done, and her "trophy husband" (he was 8 years her senior, but she insisted on calling him that) seemed to want to subtly remind her of that.

"That's my point exactly. I got tossed into the brig for doing that crap. So should she, and her goon- I mean George." he paused.

"Look, all I'm saying is that she seems nice, but her actions are showing something completely different. I don't have to like her or George.

"You're still walking around with preconceived notions," Judy admonished. "You have to think about what those engineers might have done that prompted him to do that. You of all people should know that these things don't just happen on their own."

Judy wasn't having it. She was going to make Sven try to understand where those around him were coming from, or she was going to relieve him of duty. Either way, she was going to need some love from her husband after this stressful session.

He took a deep breath.

"Okay, you make a good point. Suppose there was a full on fistfight going on. Waiting for security might not have been conducive. Maybe that's why George scruffed them?"

"Security doesn't always come right away. You know that as well as I do," Judy reminded Sven. "So, suppose these two were punching each other, or fucking with the warp core in some dangerous way, it would make sense to break them up as quickly as possible. Not only that, but it'd also be many people's first instinct. That doesn't make it a power play."

Sven conceded. Judy made a successful argument and it caused him to reevaluate his preconceived notions. He wasn't going to pull the stubborn card out either.

"You're right."

"People's actions make a lot more sense when you consider why they're acting as they are, instead of making a snap judgement," Judy summarized. "Especially so with people you'd benefit from having a good relation with - snap judgements there will only hurt you."

Judy set down her glasses.
"Consider, for example, the smell of garlic currently drifting in here from the kitchen. I could conclude that Max is messing with me, or I could think about why he's doing that."

There was a subtle message here for Sven as well.

"You're a vampire or something." he said with a slight smile.

"Sounds like dinner is ready."

"More like a late evening snack," Judy answered, smiling. "Max! How do you think that makes me feel?"
"I just want my wife!" Max cried back from the kitchen.
"Come and say hello!" the shrink ordered, which prompted the silver-haired chef to do just that, an apron tied over his pajamas.

"Max, Sven; Sven, Max," Judy introduced.
"Lovely to meet you," Max replied, prominently displaying his distinguished British accent.
"Not worried about yet another young, male patient?"

Sven was not ready for that.

"Uh. Hi. Dr. Eastman has told me how much of a legendary chef you are." he said most uncomfortably.

Max could tell that his beloved wife had successfully made things awkward for her patient, which made him blush a little.

"She tends to brag about me too often," he answered, sending a not-so-subtle message to the missus.

"I do," Judy acknowledged, picking up the message. "Sven, if you have another party over our scheduled meeting, feel free to reschedule on me. I'll just extend my lunch break and spend it bothering this hottie at work."

The older woman rose, signaling that Sven's weekly torture was just about done.
She was also eager to enjoy the evening.
