Chapter 6

Their only contact with the outside world was via the newsnets. They could watch them all they wanted, although it was all pre-recorded. Most of RP1's colleagues thought the outside world was in pretty bad shape and were glad that they were shielded from it. It allowed them to concentrate on the business at hand, namely learning all the things that would be necessary for first the long journey, then the future colony. Some courses were required for all, others were required for some that had certain skills, and still others were elective. There was a lot of camaraderie among them, though they couldn't fraternize much, since their classes were often small and only limited team projects were allowed.

Some of them complemented their classes by teaching themselves other things, using e-books and e-journals from the library. Overall, they were generally much more educated than the average U. S. citizen. For example, their knowledge of anatomy, basic bodily functions, genetics, diseases, and so forth was at least equivalent to that of a second year medical student. In particular, RP1 knew all about the differences between males and females. He was sure his feelings for SW2 were much more than simple sexual attraction, though. Where is she? As if on cue, she stepped into the garden. He stood and she slipped into his waiting arms. Her warm body made him feel electric. Her full lips brushed against his.

"I've missed you," she whispered. "They did more tests on me today. Will they take something from me like GW1? Or am I going to die like FT2?"
