Chapter 5 JanexAmelia
Amelia was impressed at how swiftly the new stockade was erected around the hall in the centre of town. The casualties were moved into the main chamber and made as comfortable as possible. Jane moved her father's desk into an adjoining storeroom and set up her first aid post in there, including her collection of small bottles and a samovar of tea. For the sake of appearances, Amelia insisted on maintaining the patrols on the outer wall and not falling back to the new positions until nightfall.
"I would rather not give them the satisfaction," she said. "And besides, if they come at us during the day we'll have our best chance of seeing th

Jane walked through the darkened town, a bucket in each hand. It was a warm night despite the fact that the last light of the sun had long since disappeared below the horizon. She made her way around the town hall hill and headed for the main water tank. There were few lights on this late but a couple of lamps were burning brightly enough to find her way. It was only when she stepped into the pitch-black shadow of a house that she encountered an obstacle. Her foot struck a rock and she stumbled, dropping the buckets which clattered noisily onto the ground. A distinctly unladylike curse hissed between her teeth and she waited for the pai

To Amelia's irritation, the sniper attacks were kept up for three days. Arrow and Whiting hit upon an effective countermeasure, in which one defender set up a decoy- Marine hats seemed to be popular targets for the Naztarii- while a small team of others waited for the enemy to open fire so they could trace the origin of the bright laser pulses and respond in kind. It was impossible to tell if any damage was inflicted but the enemy at least began treating lone targets with suspicion and were letting them go unmolested as often as shooting at them. Amelia moved into a one-room hut close to the southern wall. She made use of the new location
Chapter 2 JanexAmelia
Jane awoke the next morning feeling oddly refreshed. She stretched and yawned and lay for a moment contemplating the first light falling through the window. The sounds of a new day were beginning to filter through and she swung her feet out of the bed. Remembering the night before, she strained her ears to see if her neighbour was still there. But all was quiet next door. She dressed quietly and pushed the door open, peeking around cautiously. The infirmary was empty and Jane had to look closely to see which of the beds had been slept in, so neat had Amelia been in remaking it. Secretly rather impressed, she stepped out of

Chapter One- A Call for Help
The astral rain was falling on the windows of the brightly lit officer's wardroom of the Royal Light Ship Resolute, leaving trails as the droplets ran into each other and merged. The big ship-of-the-line was ploughing through the haze of the Lagoon Nebula, leaving a swirling wake behind it. In the wardroom, Acting Lieutenant Amelia stood with her back to the windows, buffed the triangular gold patch on her hat with her sleeve and smiled at the way it caught the light. As a badge of office went, it wasn't bad, even if she had her doubts about the durability of the black rosette attached to it.
