The corners of Sair’s mouth tugged upwards just a hair. “Sometimes the thrill of the new is the thing that allows us to toss caution aside and leap where we might not normally. And wonderful things can happen from that, just as much as sometimes we can get deeply hurt,” she observed. “Do you feel though, despite how it ended, that you now have a clearer picture of what is important to you in a relationship and how you want to proceed with one in the future?”

Alex smiled and said “I have a clearer picture that my first instinct was correct: don’t get involved with someone stationed on the ship.” and he chuckled again. “And I know what I don’t want… thats for certain. So I suppose some new knowledge is a good thing.”


“Knowing what you don’t want is often as useful as knowing what you do,” Sair said, warmth infused in her bright voice. “So what do you intend to do with this newfound knowledge?” Whether there was anything to do or was necessary was beside the point. For the moment she was still gathering information and figuring out how Cochrane thought.
