“Hard to imagine it was once blue, isn’t it Grandpa?”
Ryōkan watched his granddaughter, nose and hands pressed to the window, her imagination trying to transform brown planet into an aquarelle of blues and greens.
“I don’t have to imagine, I remember.”
With an ease enabled by the low gravity field, Kahouru pushed against the window and glided towards Ryōkan.
“I wish we could go back.”
Kissing the top of her head, Ryōkan offered his pocket watch to Kahouru. The old broken thing with an image of the Earth elicited the sweetest smile from the girl.
“Maybe in another lifetime.”
