For those that have been reading the Space Rogues series, you know meals/food are important. The crew of the Ghost does a lot during meals. When they have guests/clients, the meals get even more interesting.
The meal is delicious and the conversation light. As Wil and Cynthia clear the dishes he calls to everyone, “Ok, I think it’s time we introduce our guest to the wonders that are Star Wars. We’ll watch them in the appropriate order of course.” He makes a slashing motion, “Machete!” He accents the word, for no one’s benefit but his own.
Jarek Ruus, sitting on the sofa next to Zephyr and Maxim opens his mouth to ask something and Zephyr rests a hand on the older man’s knee, “Don’t ask. The last time this came up it was two days before we actually got to watch them as Wil explained the various preferred watching orders and their merits.”
The older man closes his mouth then says, “I see, very well.”
Bennie at his usual perch on the arm of the large overstuffed chair says, “The end result is that no one cares except him.”
“The order you watch Star Wars is important!” Wil shouts from the sink. “It informs your view of the entire thing.”
Maxim snaps his fingers, “Whatever, hurry up and start whichever one you’re going to start.”
“And bring popcorn!” Bennie adds.
It should also be no surprise that Wil is a pop culture (for him historical) junkie. Much like me.
Space Rogues 7: A guy Walks Into a Bar comes out on October 6th. You can pre-order it now from all of the retailers as well as direct from me.
