Title: Missing Scenes from TOS Episode #32: Friday's Child
Author: Tempest
Series: TOS
Paring: S/Mc
Rating: PG-13
Summary: What happened during "Friday's Child" that Paramount didn't want the fans to see.
Disclaimer: I don't own TOS. I never have, and I never will. Star Trek and all of its relations are property of Paramount and Viacom. I only own this story. Anybody who has a problem with the thought of men in homosexual relationship with each other, please stay away. Flames and feedback are welcome.
Author's Notes: This is all Loony's fault. I hadn't planned on writing this. I didn't even want to at first, but due to fast-talking and the fact she is responsible for my present state of mind, well, insanity, I'm writing this. I want to thank her for at least convincing me to actually do something, instead of doing projects on and off. Technically, this is number 32 in the series that will take place, which has been codenamed "The TOS Missing Scenes Series." Brilliant, no? This takes place during the episode "Friday's Child" for all confused. Thanks to Stef for Betaing for me. You're great!
Missing Scenes from "Friday's Child"
By Tempest

(Setting: McCoy's quarters, Spock and McCoy are preparing for the mission)

Spock: Leonard, I do not believe I like the fact that you were stationed here for months at a time.

McCoy: (Looking up at Spock) Worried, Spock?

Spock: Indeed.

McCoy: It was a long time ago, Spock. I'm fine, and if it makes you feel any better, you'll be here to protect me this time.

Spock: (Sitting down next to McCoy on the bed) That does little to ease my worries, Leonard.

McCoy: (Taking Spock's hand in his) Everything's going to be fine, Spock. They may seem a bit different, but they're good people. Nothing's going to happen. Trust me.

Spock: I do, Leonard. (Stroking McCoy's fingers with his own) Come now, the Captain expects us in the transporter room.


(Setting: The cave where a sleeping Eleen lays and Kirk is outside, keeping watch. McCoy sits on a rock, Spock against a wall.)

McCoy: Spock, listen to me, will you?

Spock: (fiddling with a communicator, ignoring McCoy) I am busy at the moment, Doctor.

McCoy: I don't care how damned busy you are. Stop and listen for a minute!

Spock: (Looks at McCoy) What is it, Doctor?

McCoy: Spock, please. I dont' want you to be mad. She was just touching my hand, that's all.

Spock: That is all, Doctor? Merely touching hands? You of all humans are aware that one cannot "just touch hands."

McCoy: Spock, I'm sorry, I do mean that. But I want you to know something else, too, humans, and most other cultures of the galaxy, save Vulcans, don't find casual touching so abhorrent. Just think about that.

Spock: (Thinking for a long moment) You are aware, Leonard, that you will be sleeping alone for the next three nights?

McCoy: (sighing) Yeah, I know. 


(Setting: Outside the cave, Kirk and Spock are making bows) 

Kirk: (testing his bow) Everything all right with you and Bones?

Spock: Whatever do you mean, Captain? Dr. McCoy and I are fine. He is helping Eleen with her labor. 

Kirk: (looking incredulous) I know that, Spock. I mean outside of the mission.

Spock: (looking away from Kirk) We are fine, Captain. 

Kirk: Are you sure, Spock? You've been acting a little odd since we escaped.

Spock: I am fine. Dr. McCoy has merely been concentrating on his patient. 

Kirk: You sound jealous, Spock.

Spock: (raising his eyebrow) Never.


(Setting: The Mess Hall, Spock, Kirk, and McCoy sit at a table, talking)

Kirk: Bones, explain this once more. Why did Eleen say it was "our" child to you? 

Spock: (Fixing McCoy with a piercing gaze) Yes, Doctor, do explain.

McCoy: (sighing and leaning back) We were in the cave, and I was trying to make her want it. She'd been explaining that kids belong to the men, and I was getting a little agitated.

Spock: (Interjected) A little agitated, Doctor? 

McCoy: All right, I was pretty upset. While I was trying to make her admit it was hers, she got the idea in her head I was taking claim to it. I couldn't get her to stop saying that, afterwards. It's not like it's actually mine, or I even want it. (Looking at Spock) Catch my drift?

Kirk: Well, let's just hope she doesn't expect you to keep him. That could be a messy political situation. And I don't know about the two of you, but I've had enough of Capella IV to last a lifetime. 

Spock: Agreed, Captain. And we will be leaving orbit within the hour.

Kirk: Thank goodness for small miracles Spock. Right now, I have to check in with engineering. I'll see you both on the bridge later. (He rises and leaves) 

Spock: There is nothing else to the story, Doctor?

McCoy: (Looking into Spock's eyes) No, Spock. I mean it; that's all that happened. 

Spock: (Slowly nodding) I believe you, Leonard.

McCoy: Are you mad? 

Spock: I am...not very pleased.

McCoy: I did say I was sorry. And I meant it. And if you want, I'll leave you alone for the next two days. 

Spock: (Contemplating for a moment before speaking) That will not be necessary. I realize it was all a misunderstanding, and that you regret what occurred. I also know that you will not do this (Reaching out to stroke McCoy's hand) again, with anybody else.

McCoy: (Closing his eyes) I won't, Spock. I promise. I want nothing more to do with Leonard James Akaar or his mother.

Spock: (Raising his eyebrow) Indeed? That is another thing I wish to speak to you about...
