“You have a way of asking difficult questions,” Spock said.

T’Pris nodded, quietly acknowledging the fact. “So my parents said, and so said my husband. But now I am T’Sai T’Pris, Aduna Sepel kiran. For humans, a widow. For Vulcans, free to choose a new mate.” She turned to look directly at him. “Or a lover. That is a difficult question to consider.”

“I am betrothed,” he said softly.

“But not wed,” she said as softly. “Not yet.”

Spock studied her for a long moment, considering what he knew of her, what he felt for her, the surprising emotions she called up in him. And he remembered what he knew of T’Pring, what he felt for her. The only emotions T’Pring brought forth in him were duty and obligation laid on him by others.

Slowly, he reached out his hand to T’Pris.

Lightly, gently, almost fearfully, their fingers touched and caressed.
