An Entry Into a Book of Memories

Characters: Cat Rosha

Cat sat down in the middle of her quarters and took out a leather bound book. She had been writing in that book for years, but hadn’t put her hands on the book since came aboard. She figured it was a good time to start..

“Year 10, Day 49: I haven’t written in this for a while so here’s what has been happening so far, I just got assigned aboard a ship named the Phoenix, came aboard as Storm Squadron Leader. Me! A Leader! Who would have Imagined? Well, everyone here seems nice, as usual I haven’t tried to make any friends, but they’ve found me! Brenda, Eddie and the other fighter pilots all are very friendly. That makes it a lot easier for me. I haven’t met many other people on board, but they seem very nice when I pass them in the corridor. The Phoenix is a beautiful ship, and better than any I’ve been on before. I now like to take walks around and watch the stars in the observation dome. Well I better go, I’m getting hungry.”

With that, Cat closed the book and hid it once again. Then she got up and walked down to the mess area for some food.
