This story takes place as humanity is trying to survive in hiding from a superior alien race. The humans have been found and must fight off the enemy forces long enough for their ship to prep for a jump to safety. The story is told from the perspective of Shinji Amagiri as he is focusing on fixing up their wounded and trying desperately not to worry about his pregnant wife, one of their best fighters. Goshev is very good with the short story format. He gets straight to the point while still giving you the world setting. This particular story did have some stuff not for the queasy, but there wasn't much. It was really more a story of surviving, finding reason to survive and persevering. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more from Goshev. 4.5 Hoots!
