SF Drabble #9 “Wish You Were Here”

My folks were rich enough when they retired that they decided to go off world. Two first class tickets on the Polixaci liner pretty much cleaned their savings out, but they’d have two pensions and the house rental piling up for the five years they were gone.

They did the excursion boat tour of the system before the ship left, sent me the pics: Mom and Dad posing in suits on Mars, on Europa with Jupiter half the sky behind them. Right now they’re probably on some distant planet standing stiffly in front of some unlikely piece of alien architecture.
