I was recently struck with inspiration for a story that fits this weeks prompt nicely.
Spoilers: If mentioning a companion's name is a spoiler than minor spoilers.
Ennaly had sent most of the crew out and she was now gladder then ever she made that decision.
“Eeeeee***kk!” Ennaly screamed. She was staring in her mirror with a look of growing horror.
While she was working on the engines, Risha heard a scream from the vicinity of the captain’s room. She strolled that way unhurriedly sure that there couldn’t be anything too dangerous on the ship since none of the crew had actually come back yet.
When she made it to Ennaly’s bedroom, the door burst open and both girls screamed. Ennaly screamed in surprise; Risha screamed in the realization that Ennaly probably did something horrible to herself.
“Um…did you mean to do that to your face?” Risha was staring openly at the tragedy on her captain’s face.
Ennaly looked around nervously and gestured for Risha to enter. Ennaly’s room was a disaster area, only now more so than usual. The table under her mirror was covered in cosmetics and there was an instruction pamphlet attached to the mirror.
“I followed all the instructions, then I looked in the mirror and there was this!” Ennaly was gesturing madly and her voice was hysterical.
Now that she knew what happened, Risha started laughing. It started as a giggle and progressed into gales of laughter. Ennaly did not look amused. The thick black eye-liner, fluorescent yellow eye-shadow, and hot pink lip gloss that were currently on the face of the mirialan captain accentuated the glare she turned on Risha nicely. Risha continued laughing and looked at the various cosmetics that were obviously made for a human complexion. They could hear the main hatch open and the voices of the other members of the crew as they entered the ship.
Ennaly turned a desperate look to Risha, “Please help me get this junk off my face.”
