Freefall 1117

After dinner

I've never heard of anyone actually getting bumped off a spaceship before. The penalties for that are rough.

For a human, yes. I'm considered live cargo. The penalties for that aren't as severe.

I talked to the shipping clerk. He told me a C.E.O. had retired. Passage back home was part of his contract. I was the cheapest thing in cold sleep to bump.

It's a good story. Still, something doesn't feel right.

I agree. When C.E.O. retirement is involved, it never goes by the cheapest route.
