“I’ll bring you a souvenir,” Lyn said impulsively. Did she really intend to take her up on the offer? Why not? Ani was quiet beside her, watching. Was that a bemused grin? Ghez, ever the professional, pretended to ignore them and inset a view of the Aphrodite moving back to its own orbit.
“Please give my regards to Omara when you see her next,” Celeste said.

“We will.” Celeste rested her chin on her hand, her intense gaze unsettling, but not in a bad way. Then she took in a deep, perhaps regretful breath. “I wish I could chat, but I need to go judge a dance-off.”
“Enjoy,” Lyn said, her mouth suddenly dry. “It was nice meeting you.”
The screen blinked off. Ani switched to the view of the Aphrodite, continuing to move slowly out of visual range.
“That was interesting,” Ani said.
“I think she was flirting with you.”
“I highly doubt that.” Lyn’s hot cheeks made her grateful for the room’s dim lighting.
