Aster sat in the pilot's chair of her baby, Star Riot, speediest little ship this side of the galaxy has ever known. Aster stared out at the abyss of space as the auto-pilot program took over, relieving her of duty. She stood and stretched, looking at the various screens as she did so. She was on her way to collect a pretty heavy bounty with enough money to get the upgrades she needed for ship. Not to mention some luxury items she's had her eyes on.
She got down from the deck and went to where Duke usually was, sitting with his face buried in the holoscreens. "Duke," she said calling from down the hall, "what's our ETA?" She knew she could find it easily on her navigation screen, but she liked to bother Duke. She thought the expression he got when he was pissed was adorable. She walked down the hall until she was at his door, standing in the doorway smiling.
"ETA Mr. I'mSoGoodAtMyJob," she said putting on her best smile. She loved to annoy him just as much as he loved to fuck her, so it worked out ok in the end.
