DEDICATION

For Madzy…

and all the other girls like her,

who bring color to an often monochrome world.

Chapter One

BAEBONG TURNS IN HIS SEAT to watch me bust a move. I haven’t felt this limber in a long time.
Yeah, baby. Must be that sarciossis magic.
The expression on his face is confused, like he’s observing something he doesn’t quite understand. It slows me down.

“What?” I ask, my hands up above my head as my hips swivel around to the left.

He looks over at Jeffers, who I just notice is staring at me with his mouth partway open.

“Is she having a stand-up seizure?” he asks.

My arms drop to my sides, and I quit with the hip swivel action. “Ha, ha, very funny. What’s the matter? Never seen a girl dance before?”

He just shakes his head really slowly side to side. Jeffers joins him.

“Oh, shut up. What do you know about rhythm? Your idea of dancing is snapping your fingers twice and winking.” I walk over to my chair and sit down, ramping up the courage and calm I’ll need to speak with the Alliance again. They’re all waiting on my response after having welcomed us into the fold.

Baebong mumbles, but I hear him loud and clear. “I know when I dance, it doesn’t look like I’m suffering an electrocution.”

Ignoring him, I lean in toward my array and transmit to the entire Alliance at once. “Thanks, everyone, for the warm welcome. We’re really glad to be here with you. So … what’s next?”

“My girls are asking for a meet and greet.” I think it’s Captain Alana speaking, leader of the ship full of women who spend their lives having sex with strangers for money. I gulp, remembering how close I came to joining their ranks once.

The door to the flightdeck slides open and Gus walks through. “What’s going on? What did I miss?” He stops at the back of Baebong’s chair and hangs onto it as he stares out the clearpanel at the other Alliance members.

“That’s fine with us,” I say, not really meaning it.
Meet and greet? Is that whore-talk for having a big, all-in Alliance orgy?
I can suddenly think of fifty things I’d rather do than have a face-to-face with the crew of the DS Osiris.

“She wants a meet and greet,” Baebong says in a loud, slightly hyper whisper.

“Who does?” Gus asks. “Captain Cass?” He looks over his shoulder at me.

I shake my head and wait for him to put it all together.

His eyes light up and he turns his attention to the clearpanel again. “Tell me it’s the whores.” He grabs Baebong’s shoulder and squeezes. “Tell me!”

Baebong twists his arm over to release Gus’s hold on him, shoving him away in the process. “Get off me, man!” He’s still smiling, though. “Yeah, it’s the whores. A meet and greet. With them. And us.”

I roll my eyes. “You guys should probably come up with a different way to describe our new partners. I don’t think they’re going to appreciate being called whores to their faces.”

“Why not?” Gus asks. “That’s what they are, right? Nothing to be ashamed of. I respect all whores.” He nods very earnestly.

“Yeah,” I say, not believing a word of it, “so long as they’re putting out.”

He frowns. “Yeah, well … that’s what they do, right?”

“Not for gingers,” Baebong says, laughing silently.

Gus frowns, his attention back on my lieutenant. “Wait … what? Whores like gingers. Whores love gingers.” His confidence falters. “What are you talking about?”

Baebong shrugs. “Oh, nothin’. Just something I heard once.”

“What? What’d you hear?” Gus is getting more agitated by the second, by something I’m almost sure is completely made up.

“Gus, relax. He’s just messing with you.”

Baebong shakes his head. “No, I’m not. Swear. Some whores aren’t into the gingers. All those freckles … freak ‘em out or something. I’ve heard rumors of other things too …”

“Aw, come on! That’s not true!” Gus looks at his arm and his face falls. “My mother always said our freckles were cute. Girls love freckles.” He holds his arm out at me. “Tell him, Captain. You’re a girl, kind of. You think they’re cute, right?”

“Gus, go back to the engine room.” I work really hard at not smiling, focusing my attention on the clearpanel.

He takes a step toward the door, but his arm is still out so I can see it. “I don’t have that many, you know. That’s good, right? Tam has way more than I do. His connect into one big blob in some spots. Mine don’t, see? All individual. Every last one. I’ve checked, believe me.”

I refuse to look at him anymore. I have to negotiate our position and our future with the Alliance right now, and then I’m going to have to figure out how to execute whatever plans we come up with, so casting judgment on freckled skin is at the very bottom of my priority list.
