Notes: Written for the TNG loving the alien challenge. And to test my pathetic knowledge of French. Laugh if you must. They are both drabbles, a story of exactly 100 words. The two stories differ slightly, partly because of word count. Merci to the online dictionaries and translators I consulted.



-À LUI JE SUIS UN AMOUREUX-


À un homme je suis un père, bien que je n'aie jamais eu des enfants. À un homme je suis un guerrier courageux et sagace. Mais j'essaye d'éviter le conflit, et c'est un imbécile qui n'a pas peur quand il y a danger. Cependant, je ne peux pas le laisser montrer. À certains je suis ami, mais le masque est toujours là.

Je voudrais le jeune idéaliste explorateur qui a été rempli de merveille et passion. Je pensé cet homme été allé pour bien, puisque celui n'est plus voulu. Mais alors j'ai trouvé quelqu'un qui m'a laissé être celui encore...

-TO HIM I AM A LOVER-


To one man I am a father, though I have never had children. To one man I am a brave warrior, a shrewd, diplomatic leader. But I try to avoid conflict, and it is a fool who is not afraid when there is danger. However, I cannot let it show. To some I am friend, but the mask can get in the way.

I long for the young idealistic explorer who was filled with wonder and passion. I thought he was gone forever, since no one needs him now. But then I found someone who let me be that again...
