The Asteroid Belt
by Stephen Brandon
Tim didn't exactly lie to me when he offered to help me achieve my impossible ambition. If I hadn't been dazzled by my dream, I'd have realized what I could be letting myself in for. He gave me a simple job that wasn't so simple. Herding cats is simple!
All I ever wanted was to get to space! His simple job put me number 1 on the list of people earth wanted annihilated.
