Her brows furrowed as she noticed that she could see seas and landmasses on the surface of the moon.  Were they like the ones on the moon back home?  Somehow, these seem more… real.  Glancing at her companion, she said, “It’s a moon, right?”

“Well,” he said, frowning, “in a way, both it and us are moons.  We orbit around a common point – an anomaly.”

“It’s beautiful,” she murmured, resting her head on his shoulder.  He made a soft sound of agreement and wrapped an arm around her shoulder.  She smiled faintly as she set her hand on his chest.
