AUTHOR'S NOTES: What the hell?!? Two in one day? This show must be good.
He’d always known she wasn’t his. Wasn’t anyone’s. Even the myriad corridors of the colossal craft that was now their home were too claustrophobic to contain her. So how could he?
Space was where she belonged. Out there among the heavenly bodies whose name she had claimed. Where the only thing holding her back was the limitations of the Vipers engines. Out there she was free.
He knew he could never lose her. She wasn’t his to lose.
But now as he watches the gap between them widen, her form silhouetted in the door, the meaning of the good doctors words takes hold of his gut and squeezes tight. And he feels desolate. Lost.
