Make it Back
"Actually, I'm surprised Jaina didn't insist on coming along to
be your copilot."
Zekk grimaced. "She did." He paused for a long moment, as if considering
how to say something unpleasant. "I told her I didn't want her along…because
we might not make it back."
"We have to make it back," Raynar said with a stubborn
optimism he hadn't known he possessed. "I promised Lusa. Besides,"
he added, flashing Zekk a calculating glance, "you can't expect
Jaina to stay out of trouble just because you're not around, do
you? Who'll come to her rescue?" As Raynar leaned forward to fiddle
with the navicomputer, he heard a soft chuckle from Zekk.
"You're right. We will have to make it back." (26)
