She wonders if the library has--

She shakes her head to clear it and keeps going.

Boss Haror assigns rations by amount of work accomplished once they're underway.

The view from the windows, taking off from the round, is incredible.

Leaving feels weird and maybe bad, but it'll probably be better once they've traveled some way.

They are going to be in the sky for three months! They can make an emergency detour if they have to but ideally will not do so. Porlan introduces her to the rest of their section, a mix of purpose made and not. There are fifteen others who answer to Haror, who answers to his shiftmaster, who answers to the captain; the full crew is about 250 people.

They seem like nice enough people.

Nobody else on the ship seems to need as much sleep as she does. It's technically possible for her to get all her work done and get eight hours of sleep if she times her bathroom breaks really well and eats while she's working. She still gets teased for lying abed so long.

Permalink

More reason to hate whoever made her! She kind of wishes they hadn't been quite so dedicated to whatever they thought they were doing.

Permalink

This means she has no time to take up her fellow crew members on it when they proposition her! Unless it's a slow day. There are slow days, clear sailing for hours and hours in the steady sunshine of the nearby suns, watching clouds and rounds go by in the distance.

Permalink

Maybe she'll take advantage of one of those slow days.

Permalink

There are a lot of people on this ship who think she is nice looking! She can join Porlan and his girlfriend, or her sectionmate Charenn who sleeps around with everybody like he's awarding himself points, or her sectionmate Lashee who just broke up with her girlfriend in another section and seems to think her accent is cute!

Permalink

She wouldn't mind spending more time with Lashee.

Permalink

"Sweet," says Lashee. "There's a few rooms down a deck, don't wanna wake anyone asleep in our bunkroom, let's go see if we have to kick anybody out."

Permalink

"Sounds good to me."

Permalink

They do not have to kick anybody out; there are shoes in the pocket on two of the Sex Room doors but not in any of the others. Lashee chooses the fifth room, explaining that the third has a broken shutter on the porthole and the fourth a weird smell that nobody's been able to get rid of yet.

Permalink

Nodnod!

This is new to her and very exciting.

Permalink

Lashee is kind of surprised about it being new but is game to introduce her to the subject!

Permalink

It's very good! And Lashee is very good!

Permalink

Lashee is distracted and fascinated by Dama's belly button!

Permalink

Oh. Right.

She catches herself before claiming they're normal where she's from. "It's not a big deal, it doesn't do anything."

Permalink

"But it's a heck of a scar! Were you impaled or something?"

Permalink

"I started out with it."

Permalink

"Huh! Interesting choice." Anyway it is time for smooches.

Permalink

That's a much better use of time.

Permalink

Later on Lashee must tell people because people want to see her weird scar!

Permalink

...They can see her weird scar, sure.
