Nipped in the Butt

“Nicely done, Shadow.”

“Thank you, Major,” the fighter’s computer purred.

I climbed down out of her cockpit and onto the landing pad on my estate. I admired the sleek lines of Shadow, the way the stars seemed to shimmer on her surfaces, almost as though they still floated in the void. She was one of a kind; the powers that be didn’t see the need to go into production mode, what with peace breaking out between Ramses and Baast.

“Why would we need any stealth fighters?” they’d asked. “There are so many better ways to spend that peace dividend here at home.”

Really, how many personal perks did those bureaucrats need?
