“Hey!” She laughed despite the protesting. Crouching down, she swished her fingers back and forth in the water. “I think enough time has passed that what you say makes a lot of sense. Back then though? I don’t think I could have accepted that if it was newly presented to me. But I apparently have this whole other family that lives in space and stuff and so I figure you all probably know just a tiny bit more than the rest of us,” Nadine said partly teasing, but also quite sincere as well.

“More? Oh hell no… just different. Working across the galaxy gives you a perspective, sure. But knowing more? I bet you could run circles around me in a ton of areas. Now c’mon… if your Ma gets there ‘afore we do and we make her wait, she’s gonna skin us both.” and he began leading her up the creek.

Meanwhile, Shara had finished up her meeting and in a weird sort of mood. The meeting went exactly like she thought it would, and then completely different. Yeah, weird was as good a descriptor as anything for her mood as she packed up a lunch and headed out to the meet Nadine and Micah at the fishing spot, humming as she went, with guitar slung across her back.

Micah and Nadine had just put lines in the water when Shara arrived. Micah smiled, looked at his wife, and said “Hey there, sexy… come here often?” and put an arm around her and gave her a squeeze and a peck on the lips before letting her go and looking back at his line.

“I thinking about making it a regular spot,” Shara said easily. But in that brief hug, the tension in her body exhaled out of her. She set down her guitar and the cooler with their lunch (sandwiches and cut up veggies) and a thermos of coffee with some small metal cups and plopped herself on the grassy bank.

“How’d it go?” Nadine asked, noting that Shara had her guard up even as she looked mildly relaxing compared to her approach.

There was a long silence before Shara founnd the right way to express it all. “Sh!t show and yet it was better than I thought,” she said with wry smile.
