Excerpt (detailing the annoying love interesting my FMC acquired today):
A nearby crew member must have noticed how much I was straining because he came up to me and said,“Need some help?”“Ah, thanks, but I can manage. I’m just getting tired, that’s all. I don’t normally work in here so I’m not used to carrying heavy boxes.” I attempted a chuckle, but the strain of holding the box choked it.“Let me help.” And without waiting for me to respond, he grabbed the box as easily as if it were twenty pounds lighter.“Thanks…?” I raised an eyebrow and waited for him to introduce himself.“(crew member #1).”“(crew member #1),” I repeated. I smiled at him and then did an about face back into the shuttle.Slightly distracted, I nearly walked right into (scientist #2). “Oh, sorry.”She peered around me, and then giggled. “I saw that. Isn’t he handsome?” Smirking, she pushed past me to the outside.I grimaced and picked up my next box.
