“Are you looking at me looking back at you?” Moorak wondered aloud, caressing the moon with his outstretched hand, leaning on his IV pole. It had been 17 months since he watched Leilani’s shuttle land on the surface, following her first steps, looking at the Earth through her eyes. “Are you cold, my love?”
Leilani adjusted her suit’s oxygen level and stepped outside for another daily routine. Climbing the ridge, she set down on a rock and gazed at the Earth. Almost half-way through, she thought, and I will hold you in my arms. “Will you wait for me?” Leilani whispered.
Moorak – Aboriginal name, meaning mountain
Leilani – Hawaiian name, meaning heavenly woman
