Mop Jockeys and Fighter Pilots
Captain Carme Batista doesn’t have time for anything other than fighting the next battle. A distraction could mean death for her and her squadron.
But Felix isn’t an ordinary janitor. He remembers things no one else does, unobtrusively attentive, seeming to sense what she needs before even she knows it.
He doesn’t seem to understand she has no emotion left. The war with the Chion destroyed them a long time ago…
Or did it?
