Hoshi came into her cabin. Another box lay on the desk. She had done some subtle poking; no one knew anything about a gift exchange. There was a note this time, printed by computer, no clues there.
“On the second day…”
What? God separated the sky and the water?
Baffled, she opened the box, revealing a pair of striking stone bookends representing the strangest creatures she had ever seen. The last planet had a flying tortoise-like creature the locals kept as pets. Placing them on the shelf she wondered who had given her these gifts, and if it was related to last night’s gift.
