Sandy walked in to the hotel room looking out over to the beach. She looked over the balcony. She was wearing a nice summer skirt and a light purple blouse. She sniffed in the salty air. She then turned around and looked at her stuff on the bed. She was just waiting for Sekat to join her. She has been looking forward to this vacation for some time now. Even though it wasn't the real Spain, it was close enough for her now. Maybe someday she could take Sekat to the real Spain. She sat down on the bed and waited for Sekat to join her. She was still wearing the sunglasses. Her eyes hadn't fully healed yet, but the doctor said she would be able to see sharp again soon.

Watching her sit on the bed, Sekat lingered in the doorway just a fraction longer. "Do you want to go down to the beach?" he asked as he decided to walk in. It was certainly hot enough for him, he had to give her that. He had opted to wear loose fitting brown coloured pants of a thin and flowing fabric, with a short sleeve shirt that matched the pants but was of a slightly different shade in colour.

Sandy looked to Sekat from the bed. She smiled and said, "I did bring a bikini. Would be nice to feel the sand between my toes and the wind through my hair." She leaned back on her arms. "I think this maybe the most intimate getaway we've ever had. Last time we rode horses. Which was nice, don't get me wrong. But it feels different somehow, you and me in this hotel room. So close to the beach. How do you feel?"

"I do not know," Sekat confessed as he leaned on his cane and glanced between her and the beach. "I do not know how well I will fare on an unsteady and uneven ground. Since my injury I have not engaged in much strenuous activity beyond horseriding. As you know, that was already quite a challenge." He hesitated. "What are your plans for our time here?"

She took of her sunglasses, blinking a bit and then turned to Sekat again. "I am talking about intimacy and al you picked up about that was horseback riding.' She chuckled and continued, "It's fine. I was just looking for some mutual understanding about my feelings. But that's ok." She got off from the bed and helped him to the bed and sit down on it. "As to my plans for our time here. I plan to get the most out of it as possible. But it's not like I have an hour to hour schedule. We will see where things lead us." She winked to him and smile cheekily.

"Mutual understanding about your feelings?" He sat on the bed beside her. "I do not understand..."

"Well, as I said, this feels different from our horse riding, more intimate, don't you agree?" She took his hands in hers and then gestured to the room as she continued, "You know, a hotel room, close to the beach. I know this is the holodeck, but still. It's close to the real thing. And the feelings are real."

"Sandy..." Sekat turned to her, taking her hand within his. "I need some space. After all that has happened while we had the implant... old feelings were stirred... I need time, and I need space. Can you give me that? I need to heal first, the trauma that I relived... I cannot do this, not right now."

Sandy didn't know what to say to that. She got up from the bed. "I understand, Sekat." She walked to the exit of the room. "Computer exit." She turned around as the exit appeared. "You know when I was blind...that was even worse than being alone in the dark. Now I wish I was blind again. Anything...but ... I understand." She had hoped this place would take the stress away. She understood seeing his dead wife wasn't something he had hoped would happen. It wasn't his fault. She ran out before he could say anything. He asked for his space, and she would give it to him. She didn't want to make things harder than they already were.

Sekat watched her go, not sure how to respond. As the room returned to its normal black and yellow grid, he too slowly walked out.
