Hide and Seek

"Clear from silent sailing." Dannall massaged her temples with her fingertips, then rubbed her tired eyes. The dull pain behind them persisted—nothing that a few years of sleep wouldn't eliminate. That's how long it felt like the Curai'Nal had been stalking them. Not even the vastness of outer space surrounding them—revealed in all its glory by the transparent dome comprising the walls and ceiling of the Shinshen's bridge—ameliorated her exhaustion.

Some people never overcame their initial vertigo, the feeling of claustrophobic exposure. They didn't last long on interstellar crews. But Dannall loved it—always had, ever since growing up on her mother's ship when her mother was just a princess instead of the queen of the fleet.
