I've got to say, it's a little weird being back in a room by myself after sharing the tent with seven other women on Cortic VI. I got used to having roommates again, I especially enjoyed sharing my quarters with women I've become close to. I don't know, I feel a little ashamed for saying this because of the horror that brought us there, but that time we spent living together down there was a lot of fun, like a great slumber party or something.
I guess it's like my mom and Auntie both say all the time, make the best out of every situation, but it was more than that somehow. I feel like I really got to know the others better, felt for the first time since I've been here that I really belonged.
I mean, I've developed a connection with women I normally wouldn't have ever gotten the chance to spend time with here and the connection.... deepened on the ground. I came to feel so close to them all, and not just Gallia, Estelle, and Liorga who I already knew so well, but also Sami, Mona, and Anya and even Dr. Julia, the beauty with the dark past. I hope my Aunt is able to help her. I'm sure she'll move Heaven and Earth, as the old saying goes, to help her get the second chance she's earned.
*laugh* Who the Hell am I kidding? She won't move them, she'll order them to get out of her way and they'll comply out of fear.
It's what the rest of us do, after all.
I wonder if they'd think it was weird to invite them to stay over with me one night soon...
I left a something behind on the planet, a note with a Russian good luck wish on it. I hope that for what time the women who took over our former home spend there that they find the kind of sisterhood we did.
Gonna be so weird having the place to myself...
Okay, myself and Georgi....
