This week I have a quote that goes along with today’s story:
“Love is a lifelong struggle for one destiny. It is pride in what we have become; faith in what we can be. It is not moments of unleashed passion that prove our love, but the countless hours of commitment spent between; it is the daily tending to, the nurturing, the preparation for tomorrow, that gives love its strength. It is two people caring, above all else, for one another that makes love endure.”
– Gust C. Buterakos

Heaven and Earth
“Jules? Julian, do you read me? Please respond,” a desperate female voice sounded over the com.
Julian crawled through the smoldering wreckage of his beloved ship, Nightingale.
“I’m here, Trisha.”
“Where are you? Why hasn’t your ship docked yet? We have minus two minutes til the jump.”
“The Nightingale is down.”
There was a pregnant pause. “Then I’ll get the Commander to wait. I’ll have them send in a retrieval pod to extract you, I’ll…”
He could hear her choked breathing. “I’ll find my way back to you. I promise. Don’t lose hope.”
“Never. I love…” The line went dead.
