At the festivities Lili Ann meets a fellow space traveler Yavoy. They have a wild night together and Lili Ann leaves him sleeping on the bed while she escapes back to her spaceship. However, she cannot escape the spaceport until Yavoy comes to get her and has a surprise for her. Yavoy is the planet’s Avatar; he shares his mind with the spirit of the planet whos name is Arengar.

Ms. Grace has created another story in the “Terran Time Tales” universe and like the others before it; it will grab your attention from the beginning. The intriguing tale has unique characters whose new found love will have you rooting for them to work out their problems and be together. This is a short story wonder that gives you a full length tale in only a few pages!
Lili Ann Baker has been enjoying her time as a cargo captain. She spends huge swathes of time alone getting world building materials to where they are needed and the appreciative recipients give her the feedback that she needs. When she delivers the final harvest containment to Geko 7, the party that erupts is wild and she is invited by the grateful population to enjoy the fruits of their first harvest.
Admittedly, Lili Ann has more wine than she can account for and the next morning she wakes up in bed with a man who does not meet the specs of the colonists. She assumes he is a pilot, like her, and sneaks away in the early dawn hours.
Her ascent is denied by a hungover ground control and she has to wait on the tarmac until the local government can sort things out. Imagine her surprise when her bedmate is leaning against the side of her vehicle, the mind of the Geko 7 swirling in his eyes.
Yavoy has been waiting for decades to find a woman of his own and despite her rather relaxed language, Lili Ann has something that completes him, an enthusiasm for life.
