You can get there from here

Alexander shifted nervously from one foot to the other. It was always the same when he came to any of the spaceports or stations. There were so many people and so much activity. The moment Robin was out of sight, he’d feel fear bubbling up inside him.

“Excuse me,” a soft voice said.

Alexander looked over his shoulder and blinked. The man was about his height. His messy blond hair fell into his face a bit. Thick brows were drawn low over green eyes. Alexander couldn’t place him, but he was clearly not local.

“Can I help you?” Alexander said, blinking.

The man smiled. “They told me that I could find passage to… Farbird Station from here?” he said, looking a bit nervous.

Alexander nodded. “You can go practically anywhere in the universe from here,” he said. His brows furrowed and he pointed over at the ticket window. “They’ll be able to tell you when the next ship to Farbird Station will be heading out.”

“Thank you,” the man said. Then, he scampered off.

Alexander blinked and then smiled when he saw Robin moving towards him through a break in the crowd. The momentary distraction was all he needed. Now, he wasn’t afraid anymore.
