For Pride month, I’m posting daily from the first chapter. Pre-order links below.
The story continues…
A bright speck caught Lyn’s peripheral vision, unrecognizable to the guests but a glowing, annoying intruder to her. That wasn’t Enceladus. She opened a mind link.
Randall to Con. Ani, are you seeing this?
Second Officer Anilina Rodriguez responded from the bridge, Yes, Captain.
Is it the Aphrodite?
I think so. I’ve asked them twice to move, but they haven’t responded. Should I turn us?
Lyn relaxed back into her chair. Slowly, the view through the dome shifted, removing the offending competitor’s ship.
Thank you, Ani. Everything okay?
Yes, Captain. Enjoy the show.
Lyn acknowledged and closed the link. Enjoy the show. Why not? Halfway through her last tour. After twenty years chasing a dream of space exploration, or maybe running from ghosts, she was ready to head home. Not to her house in Bodega Bay, California, but her childhood home in the eastern Montana desert. Back to flying a plane. In air. One of her mom’s open-cockpit replicas, perhaps. She could almost feel the wind on her face.
She returned her attention to her guests, noting that not everyone wore their Omara Tours flight suit. She’d ask Sharyn Wang, the hotel manager, to remind the guests that suits were a safety precaution and to be worn at all times.
