Endurance Excerpt #11

For Pride month, I’m posting daily from the first chapter. Pre-order links below. 

The story continues…

She eyed the engagement ring on Ani’s left hand. “How are you adjusting?” she asked as a diversion.

Ani blushed, and her wide smile warmed Lyn. Oh, to feel that again.

“The concept is great, but it feels funny. Kind of in the way.” She twirled it. “Rob wasn’t happy I was wearing it on a chain around my neck. Too symbolic, he said.”

“You’ll get used to it.” She didn’t add it was harder to get used to not wearing a ring. Instead, they chatted about wedding plans, venues. “Saturn would be nice,” Lyn said.

“Yeah, I should have booked us on the Aphrodite,” Ani deadpanned. “Captain Bratt could have performed the ceremony.”

Lyn slapped her gently on the arm. They sat quietly then Lyn gave her hand a gentle squeeze. “I’ll miss you, you know.”

“I might not quit. Not yet.”

“Really? Being away from each other for weeks at a time isn’t a healthy way to start a marriage.”

“I can do shorter Mars tours. I like flying. Rob knows that.” She added quietly, “I might switch to a cargo carrier.”

To be continued…
