Roay arrived to the station whole day before Tya, hired the apartment and after preparing everything for his next expedition, went to the quarters and arranged everything to the likings of his future wife to be. He couldn’t say he loves Tya as he should, but he definitely could feel the connection. They were chosen because they fit together and he knew that no matter where his life takes him and where her life takes her, they will be husband and wife when the time for them to settle down comes. The room was full of lowers, he chose scent of the room to resemble the woods of their home district and he bought some relaxing bath salts. ‘Will that say too obviously how much I missed sex with her? It will, but who cares, I do want it.’ Alarm told him it’s time to go. He was now standing nervous by the exit from the docking ring. He felt her before seeing his beautiful bondmate. Tya felt him the moment they entered the system, still approaching the station. She could feel his desires and emotions and those made her tremble in anticipation. She wanted him as much as he wanted her. “Roay Te’Amal, what are you doing here?” “Waiting for my imzadi.” He held her in his arms and kissed her warm lips. “Come, I rented an apartment for you. I will organize everything for the Family gathering tomorrow, you just relax and be ready for the final exam. I know you’ll excel. She let him carry her bag and lead her to the housing he prepared. Everything was perfect, though she expected nothing less. They grew up together and he knew her too well. While she was preparing her uniform for the exam tomorrow, he was preparing her the bath. He entered the bedroom from bathroom and slowly took off her clothes from her. She loved when he was doing that. When she was all naked he carried her to the bathroom and put into the bath tub prepared with salts and oils, massaging her till Tya relaxed completely. She was ready for him and he could sense it, so he carried her in the bedroom. As always, sex with him was fantastic. “Why you don’t marry me?” She asked for who knows which time. “We are not ready and I will not force you into it because your grandma wants it. You know it’s our destiny and we will do that, but I want to succeed in my work and you want to experience the Galaxy. Have those years of freedom and then return to me.” He was cuddling with her, still giving her a pleasure. In the morning, Roay helped her to put the clothes on, set everything in exactly perfect place on her uniform and tie her hair to the bun which will not contain dangerous pins but will be held tight up. After a kiss Tya went to the Holodeck for the exam, while Roay stayed in the apartment to prepare everything for the friends and the family who will arrive to congratulate new Ensign. He ordered variety of foods and drinks, since not everyone will be Betazoids and he was well versed in traditions. Though not the head of the family, his mother was still the respected Lady.
