Adam sat behind his desk in his dimly lit office, usually, he preferred to work with proper lighting but right now he needed the approximation of evening light as he stared at his screen. It was a letter from his Ex-wife, their daughter was turning twenty in July and she wanted to take a trip with her friends for the summer, ending on either Earth where both her grandparents lived or on the opposite end of the Federation, Oed V, and Anna wanted his opinion. He’d been reading and rereading the letter for the better part of an hour, he hadn’t managed to get off the Leviathan for his daughter’s nineteenth birthday so he’d already asked for leave to make it this year.
It had been nearly two years since he’d met Annabella last when they both went together to Earth where she was currently studying. Adam finally made up his mind. Oed had just finished terraforming and the Dome was scheduled to be removed soon. He wrote that Annabella hadn’t had the chance to spend any time with her other uncles the last few years and they had a standing invite to visit Oed. He finally encrypted the message and sent it to the ARU for review to finally be sent to New France. With that over, he leaned back in his chair, grabbed the glass of water on his desk, and emptied it. “Twenty years old” He said to himself to a quiet chuckle “Damn”
