SF Drabble #363 “By Default”

Sick of waiting. Gonna try jumping to the next locus, do a scan. If they’re not there... I dunno.

Fourteen days. I don’t mind a long game, if there’s action, but I’ve been sitting and waiting for most of it. It’s a game, but games should be fun.

They should have come through here, should be actively searching for me. Granted, we’re pretty far out towards the rim: there’s a lot of unexplored volume out here. Maybe they had mechanical failure. Maybe they ran into something new, something dangerous.

They'd better have run into something, wasting my time like this.
