"Tempted?" he asks his wife.

Permalink

"I'd have to manage the domestic business remotely and everything'd be polluted and what about schools for the girls - but I'm sure there are a million inefficiencies in all their production lines..."

Permalink

"I know, right."

Permalink

"Is your father going? He can probably just tutor them in everything they can't learn from written material."

Permalink

"Yeah, they'd have quite a time stopping him. I bet he'd be delighted to tutor the girls."

Permalink

"And if they want music - well, is Makel going, I don't see that he has any reason to -"

Permalink

"I don't think so. No internet, he'd perish of lack of attention. We could probably find some music tutors who'd be ecstatic to come along."

Permalink

"Or art, if they want art. Hala's never cared much for it but Kaloa might decide she likes it more than as an occasional hobby at any time and who knows about Sisheka. Who knows? Who knows, not me and not you!" (This last to Sisheka, who is across the room in Hala's arms making Hala's first spring much pleasanter.)

Permalink

"I bet we'll have our pick of both if we can get them clearance to go be colonists. Though there'll be a lot of turnover while people figure out who seasons properly. I was thinking we could stay most of this year even if we don't get lucky with the seasons, spring with Sisheka'll be fine."

Permalink

"That makes sense. I can bring a bunch of my more promising yellow staff, leave any who season right behind even if we have to go."

Permalink

"Sounds good!"

Permalink

Isama picks out staff who will be able to assemble Assemble by themselves on a colony planet even if she leaves and want to go.

Permalink

Afen gets his machine translation working adequately and teaches French classes to packed auditoriums with a million people following along online.

Permalink

"What do you think, should we go?"

Permalink

"It's certainly interesting but I don't know that blue credits in particular will be any cheaper there than here and they may not have much demand for judges. I suppose we could apply and let them make that judgment - I doubt credits are more expensive there -"

Permalink

"I was thinking land would be cheaper, one might end up more or less owning a whole country if they administered it well and had cousins in high places. And we'll need to enforce the laws for the locals, right?"

Permalink

"...yes, land's probably going for next to nothing, there's so much and only so many ni in the economy... The locals don't have castes, it'll probably be structured all differently. I suppose retraining sounds interesting and I might as well get in on the ground floor."

Permalink

"We're probably gonna caste the locals once we know how but I'm sure it'll be interesting in the meantime." Kiss. 

Permalink

"I hope we season correctly or Asame'll spring unpredictably."

Permalink

"Maybe we can see about putting the resources together for a third credit around the time when she might."

Permalink

"I'll be eighteen. I hope it comes together by then."

Permalink

"I mean, we have the money, right, just wouldn't have anything to leave them. If we have a country to leave them..."

Permalink

She nods.

Permalink

"I want to run it."

Permalink

"Really? They're gonna hate you."
