Dr.Julian Bashir was lounging negligently over his medical console, tapping into a few buttons every so often.  He studied the figures on the screen in front of him and nodded with satisfaction, transferring the information onto his PADD.

"Julian?"

His head shot up and he looked over his shoulder.  A smile fell onto his lips, "Jadzia."

The Chief Science Officer grinned at him.  "When you didn't show up, I figured you once again got caught up in your work."  She came behind him and glanced at the screen over his shoulder.  "Hmm,I guess you got what you were looking for, huh?"

He nodded, "Yep.  I thought I was keeping a good track of time.  Sorry," he said apologetically.

"Don't be," she assured him.  "Shall we?"

He offered his arm and she linked hers through it.  "Jabara?" he called out.

The Bajoran nurse stuck her head out from behind a wall.  "Yes, Doctor?"

"Would you please close up for me?  I'm going out to dinner with Commander Dax."

The nurse nodded and smiled.  "Of course, Doctor.  Have a good time," with that, she disappeared again behind the wall.

Julian glanced back at his companion, "Ready?"

She graced him with an adoring look.  "Lead the way."

His heart swelling with love, the good doctor walked out the doors of his Infirmary towards Quark's.  How long had it taken for him to finally win the amazing Jadzia Dax's attention? Much less her affection?  He had gone a long way, and he'd gone through a lot of things.  He could probably remember all the times they'd shared heartfelt conversation or their most major moments.  But with the beautiful Trill on his arm, gazing tenderly at him, he had a feeling it was only the beginning of the journey to her heart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We were strangers
Starting out on a journey
Never dreaming
What we'd have to go through
Now here we are
And I'm suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Is this seat taken?"

"Ah, n-no."

"Thank you.  Are you on your way to Deep Space Nine too?"

"Y-yes."

"Then I suppose we'd better get acquainted.  I'm Jadzia Dax."

"J-Julian B-Bashir."

"Believe me, Julian, it's a pleasure to meet you."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No one told me
I was going to find you
Unexpected
What you did to my heart
When I lost hope
You were there to remind me
This is the start

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Jadzia.  Maybe we could get together later for dinner. Or, or, or, or, or drink?

"I'd be delighted."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Life is a road
And I want to keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is the road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Well, what is it?"

"In my expert medical opinion, I'd say it's... sick."

"I know that, but why is it sick?"

"I'm a doctor, not a botanist."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'll be there
When the world stops turning
I'll be there
When the storm in through
In the end I wann be standing
At the beginning with you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Would you like another coffee?"

"No thanks, it'll keep me up all night."

"I have better ideas that will keep you up all night and they're much more fun than drinking coffee."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We were strangers
On a crazy adventure
Never dreaming
How our dreams would come true
Now here we stand
Unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"There's no cure for the Blight.  The Dominion made sure of that.  And I was so arrogant I thought I could cure it in a week."

"Maybe that was arrogant.  But it's even more arrogant to say that there is no cure just because you couldn't find it."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Life is a road
And I want to keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is the road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"So... if you're in a coma and we're not real, then what are we doing here?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'll be there
When the world stops turning
I'll be there
When the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Is it just me, or do the stars shine a little brighter in the Gamma Quadrant?"

"Is it just me, or is Julian going crazy?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I knew there was somebody somewhere
Like me alone in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
I've been waiting so long
Nothing's gonna tear us apart

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"A year ago I would have thought you were trying to be a hero."

"And now?"

"Now I realize... it was just a stupid thing to do."

"Ah, you're welcome."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Life is a road
And I want to keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is the road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Don't worry Jadzia, it's been a long time since I've had that particular fantasy."

"Oh?"

"Heh. You sound disappointed."

"Julian!"

"That's right!  You enjoyed being chased and now you miss it!"

"That's preposterous!  And if you start chasing after me again..."

"Don't worry Jadzia, now I know that you liked it, I don't need to, do I?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'll be there
When the world stops turning
I'll be there
When the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"This conduit's filthy.  Don't you ever clean up in here?"
"All right, all right.  Let's not badger the chief."
"Thank you!"
"I'm sorry.  That was rather small of me."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Life is a road and I wanna keep going
Love is a river and I wanna keep going on
Starting out on a journey
Life is a road and I wanna keep going
Love is a river and I wanna keep flowing
In the end I wanna be standing
at the beginning with you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Jadzia?"

"Hmm?"

"I want you to know... I'm your friend and I'll never stop being your friend."

"Thank you, Julian.  I really appreciate that."
