I am frazzled. Graduation is now closer to m id-month and I’m not used to that. I had way less time to get prepared for my work conference in a few days. That said I probably won’t be here next saturday because I’ll probably be up to my eyeballs in convention.
Continuing on with Behind Blue Eyes. It’s the next day and Aneirin has to face the fact he wasn’t drunk and imagining his gift.
By the time he got to the shuttle and programmed the flight plan to auto-pilot them back to his section of the orbital colony, Rioke had brought Kaleo to the shuttle bay. The young man had obviously not slept well. He was still in the finery from the night before but his painted-up eyes were rimmed red and puffy. The spiky hair-do had wilted. Aneirin could almost feel Kaleo’s fear from here.
“Get in,” Rioke ordered, propelling Kaleo along with a nudge. “He has no baggage, Doctor Shyroth.”
Aneirin frowned. Of course he didn’t. Was he supposed to leave the boy mostly naked? The answer to that was probably a big yes. He’d have to have Grimoald get Kaleo’s measurements so they could buy his new Toy clothing. “Thank you, Rioke,” he replied, hoping the bitterness didn’t shine through.

Poor Kaleo. No wonder he’s not sleeping well.
Aw, poor Kaleo. I feel so bad for what he’s going through, but hopeful for his future with Aneirin. ❤️
Poor Kaleo. I can imagine he wouldn’t have slept.
