April 1st, 2552 April Fools
Tow Truck Driver/Schroedinger’s Kat/ – Katherine ‘ConV’ James Reporting
So, without talking to me about it because, I am both dead and alive and nobody thinks my opinion is worth dealing with, the fleet is splitting into two different missions.
The first mission is to continue pressing on with the exploration and second to stay behind and research Dancer’s Retreat and my ship.
Fipps had my autopsy and that really feels like the biggest April Fool’s joke out there. I mean- how many people can honestly say they’ve read their own autopsy report?
That was weird enough, but then Fipps wanted to run a complete physical on me so he can compare current not dead/not alive Kat with 30 years older definitely dead Kat. If he weren’t so interested in scientific findings, I’d have teased him about buying me a bottle of wine first.
Okay, I admit it, I told him he needed to buy me some wine before he went any further. He blushed, got flustered and then told me he saw me as a sister.
Considering the fact that it was my brother who got me into this mess in the first place— his words did not have a connotation he was looking for.
