Lunacy: In Morning

?Good morning,? Paul said into the camera. ?You've eaten already, right?? Clod asked nervously. ?We really are sorry about that.? ?It's not your fault. I just... I forgot how much better Levy's food is. Seeing you eat real freaking waffles while I squeezed a pizza flavored soy paste out of a tube... it was cruel.? ?We didn't think you minded.? ?I didn't, at first,? she said. ?But it was cumulative. After so many missed meals consisting of real-looking food, I was starting to consider landing the Perseus on the Martian surface.? ?Could you?? he asked. ?Don?t know. It certainly wasn?t designed for it. Not explicitly. But I?m pretty sure the cockpit has shielding. I think I could decouple that and make it down.? She picked up a spoonful of something that clearly wasn?t oatmeal and then dropped it back into her bowl. ?I should have made you stay up here. ?None of us had to stay up there.? She sighed. ?Yeah, unless something goes wrong that requires somebody on this end,? she said. ?I?m fine, it?s just, I had no idea it was going to get so flipping boring.? ?That?s why you?ve got me.? ?But you?re still wearing a shirt. Despite my protests.? ?We?ve got another couple of years to this mission. Do you really think that being sexually frustrated for that long of a stretch will make things better?? ?It would make my morning better,? she pouted. Paul sighed, and started to unbutton his shirt. ?What are you doing?? Rica asked. ?Nothing,? Paul said, and buttoned his shirt back up the rest of the way. ?See what you did?? he whispered. ?I got you to start taking your shirt off. Good enough for one morning,? she said. ?But how are we coming on the fuel?? ?Levy thinks he?s ironed the kinks out of the reactor- managed to get a 3% bump in yield, which pushes us over our threshold. We should be able to launch on schedule.? ?Good,? she said, and sighed. ?Good?? ?I don't know if we'd be able to spare the fuel for me to come down. I'd hate to spend the next couple years up here on my own. I could get really good at Ultra Mario, but I guess I didn't realize how much of a social butterfly I am.? ?Or maybe even introverts need a little attention now and again.? ?Or maybe that.?
