Earth date - February 2257
One hundred and ninety four years since First Contact Nyota Uhura could be counted among the many humans fascinated by Vulcaniod ears. Her first thoughts on meeting Lt Commander Spock were not on his height or even his looks but how would it feel to stroke those ears. Of course back then, she never imagined she would get to fulfil her secret desire, well one of many desires when it came to him. But here they were indulging in activities that would tell the world they were more than student and teacher, more than colleagues, more than friends… a lot more.
"Mmmmm.. wow " Uhura moved her head away to catch her breath from the stunning kiss they shared. It was their first.
"Does this answer your query regarding the kissing ability of this particular Vulcan?" Spock asked as he stroked her back.
They were lounging on his sofa in his apartment after a tutorial cooking session on East African cuisine. Uhura had doubted Spock's ability to prepare a meal from her homeland. After proving her wrong, well she gave him 7 out ten for effort, (the Kenyan pilau dish still tasted better with meat in her opinion, but the spicy tofu made a reasonably decent substitute). He eagerly took the offered kiss that she had promised him as thanks.
It was this openly bold move on her part that turned the corner on their relationship. Spock's kaluk's (ears) turned a lovely shade of ha'ya-kur (light green) at her words to 'give him a big kiss if he could make decent Kenyan pilau)'.
"Oh yes, it sure does" Uhura smiled in return. "You have the hottest lips, almost as hot as your ears."
"My ears and lips are the same temperature Nyota"
"Is that so? Will you permit me to test that statement?" she asked stroking his right kaluk in response.
"You may, but I do not see how..."
Spock groaned in response as Uhura's own hot lips suckled his ears. That answered another question she had….how erogenous were Vulcan ears? Answer…. Very….
