Imagine that—Federation commends for his kids! He's proud of them, the team he's built almost literally out of dirt. And here they are, mixing it like veterans with marquises and princes and Planetary Administrators—and now this! Those speech lessons he starved them all for have really paid off. His thoughts run back over the ways they came to him. Bridey—Eleganza, dammit—was the first. She'd been half of a brother-sister roller stunt act. When her brother broke his neck, the studio'd torn up the contract and thrown her out on her twelve-year-old ass.
If love could bloom so quickly, he'd say he loves her, passionately and completely. Maybe it can; he feels the grand old cliche he joked about, the same thing he felt for his first mate. (He catches himself—is this the first time he's called Jimi his "first" mate? Yes. ) The point is, he wants her to be happy, to make her so. And he wants her, this long-legged, boyish, sensitive, runny, flame-headed kid— wants her so hard it's pain to conceal it. He scratches his white thatch in wonder at himself.
But what else can be on her mind to cause such indirection, such intense trouble? He dreads her next words. When they come, he is so astonished and relieved that he has to suppress an inane grin. "Well, in a way, I did come to hear about your life. Back then, before you went on the ships, were you ever on a planet called Beneborn? " "Beneborn ... Beneborn ... Doesn't seem I ever heard of it. I'm from Broken Moon, in the Diadem. " It's hurting worse than she ever imagined it could, after all the years.
