Novel: The Celestion-5 is set to be humanity's first manned ship to Neptune. For such an important journey, you'd think some care would be put into choosing the crew, but no! It was mostly random selection. Half of the crew are rookies fresh out of high school, and the other half are still absurdly young. This group of assorted goofballs will have to band together to survive the journey to Neptune and back. Updates daily at 9:00AM PST (until May 11th!)
Newest Chapter: Angelo reunites with a very special person and struggles to get settled on the ship.
“I’m so happy to see you!” Leon welcomed him with open arms.
“You are…?” Angelo didn’t budge.
His brother looked at him with the same friendly eyes he always did. “Of course I am.”
Barely realizing it, Angelo took a step forward. A few more and he found himself sobbing in his brother’s arms. Fear, joy, and confusion blended into each other, filling his swollen heart. He didn’t know what he wanted to say, not that he could say it, crying so hard.
What he did know was that despite the circumstances, it overjoyed him to see his brother, his best friend, and source of comfort again. Leon couldn’t always take his pain away, but he made it more bearable just by being there. These past two months without him made Angelo feel so lost. He meant so much to him. Maybe too much.
“Shhh, it’s okay. I missed you too.” Leon patted him on the back. “When Mamá told me she was sending a care package, I never thought she meant you! And you told me you were at Gramps's house!”
…Ah. So that’s why he didn’t notice.
