If you daydream about Italy, go where few others go. Here is a list of ten highly recommended off-the-beaten-path places I’ve been, mostly last year, during my combined five and a half years living in Italy.

100 Words: A beginning - by HanaSheralHaminail (100 Words #1)
The Ambassador nodded, falling silent, and his eyes wandered away from his son to examine the traditional artefacts adorning his room. Spock too was quiet, wondering whether he should choose a different topic of conversation or excuse himself altogether. He could easily pick up the sounds of Jim shuffling about in their joint bathroom, turning the water on, off, on, and off again with a muffled curse. Finally, the human called for him: “Hey, Spock! My toothpaste’s finished!” He was clearly talking around his toothbrush, and half a second later he peered inside the Vulcan’s quarters, peeking out his golden head from the door. “Mind if I use yours?” he asked.

Ignoring his father’s eloquent eyebrow raise, Spock gave his assent: “You may suit yourself, Jim,” he answered, watching his Captain disappear back behind the door, shouting a cheerful: “Thank you!” as he ran the water once more.

“You appear to be quite informal around your Captain,” Sarek mused, not precisely looking at his face, “He surely is very relaxed in his interactions with you.”

“We are friends.” Spock stated simply, part of him awaiting almost eagerly his father’s response to such a challenge. “It is the custom.”

“Is it, now?” Sarek questioned, cocking his head to the side and folding his hands the same way his son had done before.

The Science Officer’s reply was drowned by Jim’s enthusiastic voice as he let himself into the room without asking for consent: “Oi, Spock, you busy?” His blue eyes fell on the pile of PADDs on the Vulcan’s desk, and he looked back at him, smiling wide, “It’s still early -wanna have a chat or something? Chess?” He walked to stand in front of Spock, and only then did he notice their silent spectator; he straightened a little, trying to appear more dignified, even if he was wearing a pair of loose pyjamas, and bowed: “Greetings, Ambassador! Am I interrupting?”

Spock turned around in his chair, secretly amused by his friend’s spontaneity, and motioned for him to sit nearby; Kirk took it as permission to climb on the desk and he settled comfortably next to the screen, shooting Sarek a very smug look as the Vulcan stared.
