I really enjoyed this piece. It just sounds like Spock as we remember him shortly after the second pilot. I can see Spock opening that package meticulously.
It is a journey of discovery for both of them. Well done.
Thank you, D. That was exactly what I was working for. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Wow, this little story is more than delightful! It perfectly captures their relationship at the beginning and I kept seeing Spock in that strange uniform of the first episodes and think that the lovely halfsmile he showed sometimes then might have appeard on his face when back in his quarters he opened the book Jim gave him.
Thank you! Sometimes I need to remember that there can be pleasure in small packags as well.

This made me smile the whole time I was reading it. Lovely, lovely work. I always especially enjoy stories that explore the very beginning of Kirk and Spock's time together, when they're just feeling each other out, and you write them beautifully.
Thank you so much! The image of Spock holding a gift and saying "I do not understand" popped into my agile little brain, and the only way I could release it was to write this little story. Thanks for reading and for your comments.

Very sweet; would love a chapter or two eventually turning into the chess match being a love match xx
I appreciate your reading and comments, but this was intended as a one shot. At this time, I have no plans to add to it, but thanks for the suggestion.
