The Girls From Alcyone II: Freelancer
This Week: In this snip: Christian finds himself contemplating his recent defection from the Kimuran naval forces, and his appointment to commander of the Hayate, a small, obsolete destroyer in service to Sigrid's new fleet.
Deserters, traitors, is that what they were? Criminals to be hung from the gallows?
Christian had no qualms about what he'd done. It wasn't treason, far from it. He had been there that day on Aquarii, witnessed the betrayal of the Lady Kimura, by her board, and by her own son. If there was any question of treason or desertion, Christian knew with whom the real betrayal lay.
And, he had hardly been alone in his thinking. Scores of workers, soldiers, officers—even a Fleet Admiral—had left Aquarii in order to follow and serve the great Lady Kimura. And as Christian scanned the bridge crew again, his crew, he knew he had never seen such loyalty and devotion. This wasn't desertion. This was dedication.
