Stopping at her bunk she changed quickly into a pair of track pants and headed down to D Deck for her sprints. Arriving she found the hallway empty, grinning she began her sprints down what the engineering crew could afford as space. Bridger had a good rhythm going when a tall figure emerged out of the end of the hallway. Gwen knew by first glance that the man was a GELF, the trademark skin colorations. He was extremely tall for any man that would work on a DSV. His manner was somewhat childlike, but she did want to get on his bad side. Looking up at the figure she smiled. He was a GELF, that didn't matter, she had learned long ago that they were people too, he had half smirk on his face.

"Hello." He said sounding shy. "Who are you?"

"Hey, I'm Gwen." She quickly wiped her hand on her pants leg and extended her hand. "And you would be?"

"I'm Dagwood." he smiled proudly. "Nice to meet you."

"Thanks, same to you. What are you doing down here Dagwood?"

"I was helping Lt. Smithy, he needed help lifting." he looked at her "What are you doing down here?"

"I was running." she smiled.

"From someone?" He asked concerned.

"No, just for exercise." Bridger looked around Dagwood to see what she could assume was Lt. Smithy.

"Hey Dagwood, are you making friends?" Smithy asked smiling.

"Yeah," Dagwood grinned. "Gwen is a nice lady."

"I'm sure she is, but I need you to help me with one more thing and then we can go get some chow, okay?" Smithy raised his brow.

"Okay," Dagwood smiled at the other man. "I have to go now." he said turning back to Gwen.

"All right Dagwood, I'll see you around." she smiled. "Sorry about that Smithy."

"Its all right." Smithy smiled and waved.

Bridger waved to both men as she headed up a few decks, a few of the male crew were giving her the once over. Looking down at her choice of workout clothes, rolling her eyes, it didn't leave much to the imagination. She had almost made it back to her quarters when she spotted Lucas up ahead. Checking his palm pilot for a few things, he briefly glanced up and his jaw almost dropped.
