SF Drabble #15 “Walkabout”
I took a supply rocket to the L5 Colonies, then talked my way onto a courier ship to Mars. I hung around the embassies in the Hellas Planitia until I found someone hiring for an outbound run. That took me to the colonies at Epsilon Indi and Tau Ceti, and from there to a Fouwhi outpost around some red giant, I didn’t know the name. I hopped ships to a Madive packet ship headed for the main Association circuit. Once I get tired of alien planets covered with strange and beautiful cities, I figure I’ll head for the galactic core.
