6.22 - Embrace

“After that, we can hunt that thing down, catch it, cook it and eat it," he said, half-joking.

“I don’t ever want to see it again,” she said. “I just want to leave.”

“I understand,” Daniel said, regretting his attempt at levity. “It’s just that …  we can’t go yet. Gotta find Rachel and Trak.”

“Of course,” she said, and looked momentarily sad.     

Is she remembering crewmates? Daniel thought.  Family? Friends? Another lover maybe?

Jealousy crossed Daniel’s mind, but the emotion disappeared when she stepped closer.

“Daniel, I have no words. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you,” she said, wrapping her arms around him.

She looked down and then into his eyes.

And she kissed him.

Even the piercing shrieks of a rather irritating, incapacitated monster in the  distance couldn’t ruin that for Daniel.

    This reminds me of a line in a Errol Flynn movie. Wish I could remember it exactly. something about when a man loves a woman and knows she's no good.

    but John my friend where are all the crew that were at stuc station when this is going on? are they playing poker in some long forgotten corner room 12345678?

      The interaction between the crew, the destroyer and Daniel, Rachel and Trak is the main point of the story.

      I've been waitin to get to that for a while.

      The problem is that i can't just pop them in. I have to finish this part and then we can get to them. :)
