SF Drabble #336 “We Have An Arrangement”

It’s all over the gossip sites. Nobody has actually said anything, but the feed is like Big Brother: it’s a small ship, and they’re almost always on camera. A look here, a touch there, and everyone knows. The Agency hasn’t encouraged the talk, but hasn’t exactly been discouraged it, either. The ratings are up… everyone wants to see interplanetary romance blossom.

I’m married to one of the most beautiful, intelligent, charming women in the world. Only, just now she’s headed to Jupiter, and won’t be back for five years. We’re realistic. I’m seeing someone too. Not that that’ll make Perez.
