“It was!” Viyara beamed as she turned her head to look at Ghubari. And without thinking she continued a little more softly, “It’s moments and thinks like this that make me really feel alive.”

“You should try hiking Kilimanjaro on Earth. Guaranteed to put things into perspective,” Koraia said thoughtfully.

“Thank you for the tip. I will,” Viyara replied with a lopsided smile before taking a deep breath. And she meant it. Tips like that were something she valued.

Séan took a few more minutes to catch up to the women. With a good amount of perspiration he pulled himself up to the ledge and got steadily to his feet. His breathing was deep but steady and he stretched his large frame to get the small kink out of his shoulder. He ended up with his hands cupping the back of his head as he looked out on the simulated environment. It was a good bit of exercise but wasn’t his preferred type. Besides if he knew he was going to be doing some climbing he would’ve done a bit better job of stretching first.

Turning swiftly on her heel while still standing right at the edge of the ledge, Viyara grinned at Séan, her expression full of mischief. “I don’t think we have met. I’m Viyara Nazeen.” Turning her head slightly, hands on her hips, she looked towards the horizon and added, “Isn’t this a beautiful view?”

Séan turned his head to look at Viyara at her greeting and follow-up question. “Pleasure to meet you Viyara Nazeen. I’m Séan Iven. We haven’t had a chance to meet yet as I recently came aboard.” He turned to look back at the view. “Yes it is.”

He moved closer to the edge of the ledge so that his toes were just hanging off and he looked down, gauged the distance to the ground, and shook his head. “While the fall might not kill either of you and I’m sure the good doctor welcomes any business thrown his way, I don’t think rock climbing with the safeties off is a smart idea.”

Ghubari couldn’t help but grin. “Neither was ordering my ship through an unknown anomaly at the request of a Human who lives with a bunch of advanced alien beings, but here we are,” she said with a shrug. “Besides, I’m never careless with my body. And there are ways to invoke safety features instantly in an emergency, if you’re thinking about out them. Fail safes are nice to have but they aren’t always likely.” She turned her head to gaze at Iven. “But if it would make you feel better, I can activate them again.”

Séan looked at Ghubari with a neutral expression. “Carelessness and recklessness seem to troll a thin line Captain. I’m not here to judge but I would be remiss to not point out an observation. As for my comfort level, well I’m confident in my ability to climb a cliff. I don’t personally mind if you leave them off, but… it does make it look like a psychological outlet with the risk seeking behavior.”

Viyara only just managed to suppress a single, almost humourless laugh. She couldn’t talk for Ghubari, of course, but it was a very accurate description of her own behaviour. Not that she’d ever admit that willingly to anyone. Shifting her position so that she was looking towards the horizon again, she found herself pondering what it would feel like to let herself fall forward and then fly or glide away. She had always envied birds in a way for their ability to fly wherever they wanted.
