“Soli Ferdain, welcome to the Guild.”

Soli gave the spectacled lieutenant a wide, enthusiastic smile. “Thanks! So, what’s next? Tour to Agreda 3? Or Selen 7?” Visions of thrilling adventures filled her mind as the woman’s fingers tapped the inset display.

The lieutenant’s eyes flicked back to Soli dispassionately. “No, that’s for Flame Core. You’ll start at rank one. Ship heating, observation tour to Threkis. Two years.”

Soli’s excitement withered away. She felt cold, horror settling in beneath her skin. “Threkis, but that’s…but there’s nothing there. And heating? Anyone can do that.”

“Threkis, Private Ferdain. Report to Berth 12.”

NOTE:

Lumi is an ongoing speculative fiction flash fiction story featuring Soli, a young woman who dreams of a new life filled with thrilling adventures. What awaits her when she joins the Guild of Flame?
