Chapter 1 by cooljess6

The ship was being attacked, as far as B'Elanna Torres could tell. They'd lost communication with the bridge very quickly. She was on the top story of engineering, working on getting the most they could out of the shields. Beside her was Lt. Jen Franklin, who was monitering the ship's status, and reporting whenever something went wrong, usually every few seconds.

"Lieutenant!" she yelled to Torres, "There's a plasma leak behind your console!"

B'Elanna tried to work a few more seconds before it burst, but she was too late. The console burst, throwing B'Elanna against the railing behind her, and flying over the edge to the ground below.

"Lieutenant, are you alright?" Carey asked her as he leaned down over her.

She tried to get up, but found it impossible. She took a few deep breaths, and looked up at him.

"I can't move." she told him quietly.

******************************************************

The attack had ended, in victory for Voyager. B'Elanna had lost consciousness just after revealing the frightening news to Carey, and was now sleeping in sickbay.

Tom Paris had raced to sickbay the second he heard that something had happened to B'Elanna. They had been dating for a few months, and was planning on proposing to her the next day. He made it to the doctor, who calmly explained the devastating occurences. Tom sat down in the chair in the office, and took some deep breaths, seeming to be on the verge of tears. The doctor left the office, and walked to B'Elanna's bed, hypospray in hand. He pressed it into her neck, and she woke up. She tried to sit up, but barely even move her head.

"What happened?" she asked, fearing the worst.

"You took a rather nasty fall in engineering." the doctor explained, "You sustained a very serious spinal cord injury, beyond my abilities to repair. I'm afraid that you are paralyzed." he told the panicked woman.

Don't worry, this is only a 2 or 3 part story :~)

 

LOVE SPELL: PART TWO by cooljess6

He hated seeing her like this. It had been a little over a month since the accident in engineering, and B'Elanna was still paralyzed. Tom spent many nights alone in his quarters, thinking about her, hoping that a miracle would occur, but nothing. He visited her everyday, but was getting nervous around her, not knowing what to say. It was hard saying exactly how he felt when he was with her. He reached across to the table, and picked up the PADD sitting on it. An idea had come to him, suddenly. A way to tell her what she meant to him.

************************************************

The doctor was working furiously. He had found a surgery that would hopefully work in curing Lt. Torres, but there was a lot of pre-surgery procedures that needed to be followed, and it would be at least two more weeks before the surgery could be performed. She was none to thrilled with this news. 

Tom rushed into sickbay, and saw that B'Elanna was asleep.

Perfect. He walked into the doc's office, where Kes was studying up on B'Elanna's surgery.

"Kes?" he called her.

She looked up and smiled, but also seemed a bit annoyed.

"What is it, Tom?" she asked, trying to sound pleasant.

"I need you to read this to B'Elanna when she wakes up." he told her, and handed her the PADD.

************************************************

"B'Elanna?" Kes called to the lieutenant, who was just beginning to stir.

"What?" she asked groggily.

"I have something to read to you. It's from Tom."

B'Elanna perked to attention, and told Kes to read it. She was wondering what it was, hoping for the best, and fearing the worst.

Kes sat down on a stool beside B'Elanna's bed, and began.

"B'Elanna. I know that when I'm around you, it's hard for me to say exactly how I feel, so I thought that this would work. I love you, and never want for us to be apart. Although you can't walk, or move, or even barely turn your head, I still love you just the same. I'm even finding myself loving you more and more with each passing day. I didn't think that it was possible to love you more than I did, but now I know that it is. And, B'Elanna, I have a question to ask of you, if you'll just contact me."

B'Elanna was silent for a moment, and then turned her head slowly towards Kes.

"Can you contact him for me?" she asked.

"Of course." she leaned over, and hit B'Elanna's comm badge.

"Torres to Paris."

"Good, I was beginning to think you would never contact me." he said, and B'Elanna could see the grin on his face.

"So..."

"B'Elanna, I'm on the bridge right now, so I want you to know that everyone can hear what I'm about to say. B'Elanna Torres, will you marry me?"
