An aged Kirk, waiting at home while his bondmate is away at a seminar, befriends a neighbor woman and her young son.
[He felt for the bond; it did not have the withdrawn quality of meditation. In fact, now that Kirk was not shielding, he realized that Spock was doing a very poor job of covering his distress.
Kirk hurried to Spock's study and opened the door quietly. Spock was kneeling beside his desk, his face buried in his hands.
Kirk went to him and stood with his hands on Spock's shoulders. "Spock, let me help," he said softly.]
