This story follows on immediately from the end of "The Architecture of Emotion" Cadet Nyota Uhura has completed a successful kal-i-fee challege -- Commander Spock belongs to her. They have a few days before they must return to Earth and the greater restrictions and responsibilities of Academy life.
Memory Alpha, under the article heading "Rumarie", writes, "Rumarie was an ancient pagan festival on the planet Vulcan that was last observed during the 14th century. In 2372, while learning about Vulcan holidays, Neelix discovered Rumarie, which he described as a festival "full of barely clothed Vulcan men and women, covered in slippery Rillan grease, chasing one another."
In my Star Trek universe, Rumarie is not longer celebrated but the word is used, privately, to refer to the first days a newly bonded couple spend together. A certain lubrication product may also be involved.
Chapters will vary in length -- I like to publish every week but how much will depend on other factors.
