I am so late and it’s 100% down to how much work I have on my plate. I feel bad about the gaps in taking part but there isn’t much I can do about that. So let me get right into it Picking up with Behind Blue Eyes.
It’s now the day after Aneirin gets his gift and he isn’t any happier about it.
He held up a hand. “It’s done, Pherick. I’ll figure something out. But for now, I’m going home. I’ve called ahead. Grimoald is preparing a space for Kaleo. I’ll be in my orbital condo for the next few days anyhow. It’ll give me time to figure out what to do before going home.”
“You do know they’ll recondition him if you send him back,” Masozi said, reaching for a drink. His eyes gleamed as if he enjoyed the idea. “They’ll assume he’s defective and has to be retrained.”
Aneirin hadn’t known per se but assumed, given Kaleo’s reaction last night, it would be bad. He wouldn’t take that step until he learned more about what reconditioning meant. “Yes. Thank you very much, Masozi. I’d better get going. The faster I get him situated and look into this, the better.”

Yeah, not a surprise, given Kaleo’s reaction. I find myself wondering if there isn’t something more Masozi’s sadism, a desire to get to Kaleo in particular, or Aneirin?
