Natalie stared up at the domed starscape. She didn't move as a man joined her on the geometric bench.
"Knew you'd show up, so I set the stars for 1228," she said finally.
His non-breath caught.
"I'd never looked before. My skies were different. Yours are downright foreign."
He squeezed her shoulder. "You don't feel foreign."
"I am. You are too." Nat patted his hand. "Nick Knight's still there though, under all these centuries."
"I've got the Privilege Suite at the Hospitality Center." He kissed her. "Join me tonight?"
She leaned into him, pressing a kiss to his neck. "Always."
