Garak merely shrugged and continued to read his PADD silently.

"We could go to Quarks?" Julian asked hopefully.

"We could…make love in a holosuite?" Julian suggested brightly.

"We could stay home." Garak responded.

"And for a genetically enhanced super doctor you seem not to have noticed that you suffer from a hyperactivity disorder." The tailor gave him a censoring glare.

Julian through up his hands in disgust. "Where’s the sex? The angst? The debauchery?!?"

"Here." Garak threw him a PADD without looking up.

"What’s this?"

"Sophie’s phone number." Garak replied. "Bother her--I’m working."




"Thank you."

"No sweat."
